Here are two important
questions that we are going to answer in this study:
What are some ways that you can apply the Scriptures
in your life?
Why does one need to apply the Scriptures to their Life?
the very first step. Repentance leads into Prayer.
Prayer is a very important part, and
it needs to be the first step, so that Yehovah will open your heart,
and mind to his word.
Matthew 4:4 But He answering, said, “It has
been written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word
that comes from the mouth of Yehovah.’
Scriptures is the Supreme Authority in ALL matters of FAITH and CONDUCT! We are to
live by every word that come from Yehovah.
Always stay in connection with Yehovah through constant prayer! This
will help guide and strengthen us in making important decisions.
study the Scriptures, with yourself, and with others.
Is it really necessary to read the Scriptures for a follower of Messiah? Yes the
Scriptures is necessary for a true believer, and true follower of
Messiah to read, and the reason is this...
2 Timothy 2:15 Do your utmost to present yourself approved to
Elohim, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly handling the
Word of Truth.
2 Timothy 2:15 Study to show yourself approved unto Yehovah, a
workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of
This is the
same reason why followers need to read, and study the Scriptures.
can also be said for talking about the Scriptures with seasoned
believers, is a great way to get a deeper understanding of the
Iron sharpens Iron
Proverbs 27:17 Iron is sharpened by iron,
man sharpens the face of his friend.
It is great to do both,
read, and discuss the Scriptures with other likeminded believers.
Here are two main principles that we need to live by:
1 John 2:6 The one who says he stays in Him ought
himself also to walk, even as He walked.
TS98 We are to
walk just as Yeshua walked, and He walked blameless because He followed
The heavenly Father's Commandments.
14:12 Here is the endurance of the set-apart ones, here are those
guarding the commands of Elohim and the belief of Yeshua.
Revelation 14:12 Here is a call for the endurance of the
saints, those who keep the commandments of Yehovah and their
faith in Yeshua. KJV
principle in this verse is to keep the commandments of Yehovah, and the
second principle is to keep the FAITH of Yeshua!
Psalms 119:11 I have treasured up Your
word in my heart, That I might not sin against You. TS98
Your word have I hid in my heart, that I might not sin
live by every word of Yehovah by hiding it on our heart / mind
so that we have less of a chance to sin against Him,
and we are to do it as an example to others.
2 Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is breathed by Elohim and
profitable for teaching, for reproof, for setting straight, for
instruction in righteousness,
TS98 Do the people you are talking with
believe in the Scriptures? If you are talking with someone who out right does not believe in the
Scriptures, and wants nothing to do with it.
Clearly you can't work with them, and you can't teach them anything about
the Scriptures, because they do not have the same foundation has you do.
When sharing the Good News keep it simple, and try not to use to many
verses unless that person has some background knowledge of The
The reason being is a novice may choke on information overload.
If they have some belief in the Scriptures it becomes easier to reach
out to them. If they reject the Scriptures
all together, then you wipe off the dust just as it says in...
Mark 6:11 “And any place that does not
receive you or listen to you, when you leave there, shake
dust under your feet as a witness against them.
Truly, I say to you, it shall be more bearable for Seḏom and Amorah in
the day of judgment than for that city!”
Titus 3:10 Reject a divisive man after the first
and second warning,
Titus 3:11 knowing that such a one has been perverted, and sins, being
Titus 3:10 A man that is an heretic,
first and second admonition reject;
Titus 3:11 Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth,
being condemned of himself.
KJV So first assess the situation to see
if you can apply the Scriptures to a conversation, if some one does
believe in the Scriptures, then you have common ground, and if you use
the Scriptures correctly then you can show them their errors.
If they do believe in the Scriptures than you can move on to the next
Point 2. How to apply the Scriptures? One key fact is to commit
Scripture to memory
119:11 I have treasured up Your word in my heart, That I might not sin
When we have committed the
memory it makes it easier to live by every word of YAH.
2nd key fact is... Use the Scripture, and you do
that by applying the Scriptures to where you are able.
This is done by tailoring the conversation to what the Scriptures say.
How, and What are some ways that you can apply the Scriptures
in your life?
Praying, reading, and studying, and
committing The Scriptures to memory. As well as talking to others that
have a better understanding of the Scriptures.
When the Word affects
our mind/heart, and sole, it then effects our behavior.
Then we start changing for the better. This happens when we live by the
Word of Yehovah, and have the Faith in his son Yeshua!
Why does one
need to apply the Scriptures to their Life?
to Yehovah. In doing so it increases our faith because we
come to trust, and depend of Him. By doing so this it helps us to
overcome the trials of life.
James 4:8 Draw near to Elohim and He shall draw near to you.
Cleanse hands, sinners. And cleanse the hearts, you double-minded!
By overcoming the trials of life, with faith in Messiah we obtain
Applying The Scriptures is living by them making them a part of your
Just like in the...
“Hear, O Yisra’ĕl: Yehovah our Elohim, Yehovah is one!
“And you shall love Yehovah your Elohim with all your heart, and with
all your being, and with all your might.
“And these Words which I am commanding you today shall be in your
and you shall impress them upon your children, and shall
speak of themwhen you sit in your house, and when you
walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you
and shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as
frontlets between your eyes.
“And you shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on
your gates. TS98
with these questions to ponder...
Do you have Faith in Yehovah, Yeshua, and the Holy Spirit?
Do you have faith in Yehovah's Word?
Do you need help applying The Scriptures to your life?
We'll leave you with these two Scriptural Blessings:
Jude 1:2 Compassion, and peace, and love be increased to you.
4:7 And the peace of Elohim, which surpasses all
understanding, shall guard your hearts and minds through Messiah Yeshua.
