The “Truth Shall Spring Out Of The Earth Series” is a new collection of short Bible studies bringing fresh insight into God’s heart concerning relevant topics for today. Acts 17:11 says, “These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” Is what we’ve been told concerning the things of God really so, especially in the church that is filled with much controversy and division? Our answer is found in searching the Scriptures to see if these things are so. Paul says in II Timothy 2:7, “consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things.” To that end has this series been written; that the Lord will give us understanding in all things, for, “the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32).
Proverbs 22:20-21 says, “Have not I written to thee excellent things in counsels and knowledge, That I might make thee know the certainty of the words of truth; that thou mightest answer the words of truth to them that send unto thee?” The Hebrew word for “excellent” means “threefold or weighty.” In other words, within every passage of Scripture there is at least a threefold meaning or revelation. There is the “letter of the law” and the “spirit of the word.” Paul said in II Corinthians 3:6, “for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.” Our goal then in this series is to find the life giving progressive revelation that is hidden within God’s Word. We are seeking to find the heart of the Lord in everything as we search the Scriptures and present this humble series to you.
My prayer is for truth to spring out of the earth into your heart. May it bless, edify, encourage, and always point you to our lovely and precious Saviour Jesus!
