Go Beyond the Bible: Attend the Feast of the Kingdom of Heaven With the Lord
Many people who have faith in the Lord feel that God’s words and work are all in the Bible, that God’s salvation as described in the Bible is already full, that faith in God must be based on the Bible and that if our faith in God is based on the Bible, then we will surely be raptured into the kingdom of heaven. These religious conceptions act as invisible ropes that firmly bind and constrict our thoughts such that we do not seek out the work of the Holy Spirit and make us unable to submit to the present work of God. How then do we understand the connection between the Bible and God and the Bible and God’s work? The Lord Jesus said, “Search the scriptures; for in them you think you have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. And you will not come to me, that you might have life” (John 5:39-40). Almighty God says, “Christ of the last days brings life, and brings the enduring and everlasting way of truth. This truth is the path through which man shall gain life, and the only path by which man shall know God and be approved by God” (The Word Appears in the Flesh). It is only through leaving the Bible that we are able to come before God and accept His salvation and attend the feast of the kingdom of heaven with Him.
