Studying the Word of God

Lesson 11

How a Believer must study the Word – Speaking the Word continued



V     Psalms 119:171-172  My lips shall utter praise, when thou hast taught me thy statutes. My tongue shall speak of thy word: for all thy commandments are righteousness.

In other words everything that he had known was a revelation from heaven

V     1 John 5:20  And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.


V     Colossians 1:26-27  Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations…
