Why do you not believe all scripture is the Word of Truth already rightly divided (interpreted) word for word as it is written by the author?
If this were true (which it is not) we would not have this Scripture: Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. (2 Timothy 2:15)

That word "study" (Greek spoudazó) literally means be zealously diligent with eagerness and haste. Therefore in order to be approved by God a Christian must be a diligent worker who properly interprets Scripture.

"Rightly dividing" means "correctly interpreting" or "accurately handling ", although it literally means correctly cutting -- orthotomeó -- like a surgeon cuts with a scalpel. The Bible must be properly interpreted by the Holy Spirit, comparing spiritual things with spiritual, and unless it is properly interpreted, it will lead to error.

Here is an example of Christ demanding a proper interpretation from the Pharisees:

MATTHEW 22
41 While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them,
42 Saying, What think ye of Christ? whose son is he? They say unto him, The Son of David.
43 He saith unto them, How then doth David in spirit call him Lord, saying,
44 The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool?
45 If David then call him Lord, how is he his son?
46 And no man was able to answer him a word, neither durst any man from that day forth ask him any more questions.

So you believe this verse from the bible as scripture as it is written word for word
but not the other to which you do not want to believe word for word as it is written.

My question to you is why?

I personally believe you just pick and choose that to which you want to believe
and that to which you do not want to believe and use the man made theory
that scripture interprets scripture as your justification for adding
or taking away from the written word of God..

I do not have to study anything to show myself approved of God.
I just have to follow the Spirit of God and the anointing within me
will teach me and guide me into all truth.


Just as it is plainly WORD FOR WORD written in your bible.

I do not have to divide or interpret anything for
the Spirit of truth will do all that for me.


To which is also written word for word in your bible.
Maybe Paul is talking to them who have not the indwelling of the Spirit of God.


Yeah that must be it.
If you do not have the indwelling of the Spirit of God
you are on your own to figure it all out.

God: How do you believe my written word in Revelation 5:6 ?

Spirit_an_Truth: I believe it word for word just as it is written.
And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts,
and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain,
having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God
sent forth into all the earth.


God: How do you believe my written word in Revelation 5:6 ?

Nehemiah6:
THAT IS TOTALLY FALSE. Scripture must interpret Scripture, and your quotation from Revelation must be rightly divided (interpreted) by the Word of Truth.

So what we see here is a symbolic vision of Christ as the Lamb of God:

1. And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne... We have here a vision of God's throne in Heaven. God's throne is real, literal, heavenly, and beyond human comprehension (as noted in Ezekiel)

2. ...and of the four beasts... The "four beasts" are also called "four living creatures" or "four living beings" and in fact they are the four Cherubim (exalted angelic beings) who stand by the throne of God (as noted in other Scriptures) and are in constant motion.

3. ...and in the midst of the elders... We also know from Revelation that there are 24 elders who surround the throne of God, and are totally devoted to worship.

4. ... stood a Lamb as it had been slain... This is an unusual vision in that the Lamb "had been slain" yet was standing. Normally a slain lamb would be lying on the ground. So this is a depiction (or symbol) of Christ who was crucified but also resurrected.

5. ...having seven horns...
Horns symbolize power and authority in Scripture, and seven is the number of divine perfection, so this corresponds to the fact that all power and authority in Heaven and on earth have been given to the Lord Jesus Christ (Mt 28:18)

6. ...and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. Those seven eyes are symbolic of the perfect omnipresence and omniscience of the Godhead (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit). The Bible tells us that God knows and sees all things, but since the Holy Spirit is represented by the seven spirits of God, we see a conjunction of Christ and the Holy Spirit here, observing all things on earth.


I think you are going to be in trouble.

Revelation 5:6
And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts,
and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain,
having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God
sent forth into all the earth.
1 There shall come forth a shoot from the stump of Jesse, and a branch from his roots shall bear fruit.
2 And the Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might,
the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the LORD.
3 And his delight shall be in the fear of the LORD. He shall not judge by what his eyes see, or decide disputes by what his ears hear,
4 but with righteousness he shall judge the poor, and decide with equity for the meek of the earth; and he shall strike the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips he shall kill the wicked.
Isaiah 11: (ESV)
17 And the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to him. He unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written,
18 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed,
Luke 4: (ESV)

Congratulations, Spirit_an_Truth! By posting Anderson's anti-Semitic video, you just established a credibility rating of zero.

Here is my challenge to you since you are here condemning another man for his belief
point out any error that you can find within it. Anywhere he told a lie.
Post the time in the video for us so we see if you are telling the truth about him.

Just a tip because you are new, you should put all your posts together instead of several different posts. Much easier to post and to read.

I disagree with you. I should keep doing that to which is working for me.

So word for word, seven horns and seven eyes are the seven Spirits but that's 14 ? Also does that mean the lamb is the one that has the seven Spirits? Are the seven Spirits also the seven pillars in proverbs 9?

There is not 14 horns and 14 eyes. You are adding to it.
I will ask Jesus your other question and get back with you on it if or when He answers me.

And also if it's suppose to be taken word for word, does that mean there is literally a lamb or what is that suppose to mean, if not christ?
