Searching The Scriptures is the first volume in our foundational series. This study contains over forty lessons seeking to teach you many things. First, it will teach that the Bible is the key to real deliverance. It is not necessarily in a prayer or in hands being laid on someone, or even in a time of intense fasting, but by diligent, heartfelt searching of the Scriptures. Jesus said, “If ye continue in my Word, then are ye my disciples indeed. And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:31-32). Secondly, it will teach you the great treasures of wisdom and knowledge, and most importantly, the revelation of God’s way. Thirdly, it will lay a foundation in your life of the importance God Himself places on the Word, to the end that we would be established and not be ashamed. David says in Psalms 119:80, “Let my heart be sound in thy statutes that I be not ashamed.” In II Timothy 2:15, the Bible says, “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” The Bible also admonishes us in I Peter 3:15, “…and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you.” Lastly, Searching The Scriptures was written to promote in you a hunger and a great desire to read, study, memorize, and ultimately understand the Word of God. “O how love I thy law! it is my meditation all the day” (Psalms 119:97). Let this be the cry of our hearts.
