I admit the way of the scholar is extremely difficult, but there is a much easier way!
Even after so many years of doing this intense exegetical examination of scripture I’ve found it to be extremely difficult and time-consuming. Even the scholars disagree with what the actual text and canon really is, let along the meaning of the words. This really begs the question: If a perfect God wanted us to perfectly understand sacred gramma writings, wouldn’t he have put them in a language everybody could understand and preserved them perfectly. Anybody that tells you that everybody really has a good grip on this is selling you property in the Everglades! This is totally dishonest! This used to really shake my trusting-relying-faith in the Lord, until I realized that the entire bible keeps saying that God wanted to directly teach us all along and that rejection of this “Plan A” resulted in the Torah Law of conditional-favor written in second-hand logos messages with sacred gramma letters collected into graphe scripture, but Christ came to restore “Plan A,” which is directly-spoken/heard prophetic rhema words through dreams and visions. We will talk about this also, because this is crucial to a Spirit-powered Christian life and of course worship music!
So instead of all this complicated study, you could take an amazingly easy, childlike step of faith to better understand the truth: You can go “boldly before the throne of unconditional-favor-of-grace” (a) and “routinely be asking, seeking, and knocking until you receive, until you find, and until the door is opened” (b), and for the “eyes of your heart to be enlightened, that you may mentally ‘see’ to perceive/know (c)” (d) in order that “you may be filled with the genuine, experiential, relational epignosis knowledge of His will by the means of every kind of Spirit-kind-of sophia wisdom and related sunesis connect-the-dots understanding” (e). That really is the “easy button!” The NT does not have much good to say for bible students of their day but does about being like a child (f). <Notes> a) Hebrews 4:16, b) Matthew 7:7-8; Luke 11:9-19, c) eido, d) Ephesians 1:18, e) Colossian 1:9, f) Matthew 11:25, 18:3, 19:14; Luke 10:21; John 5:39-40.
What is your experience with all of this as a Christian musician?
