The bible is where most will first learn about the testimonies, prophecies, and revelations of the men and women who once were. The bible illustrates the way of JESUS in enough detail that one can begin to learn what is expected of them in order to receive the gift of eternal life.
However; the deceptive nature of the world is continuously adapting to the changes of the age. Now the written text does not get regular revisions. It would be naïve to think that all the issues of today could be resolved from biblical text alone.
The bible is an introduction and JESUS Is the conclusion.
The word of God is the word of Almighty JESUS which He uses to communicate His will and knowledge to His Church, known as saints. He does this in many ways. First by direct input into a person's spirit through their ears, eyes, and mind. He also uses bibles which are His past thoughts recorded in writing. Many other books written by man also speak the word of JESUS; however without the Holy Spirit of JESUS working in a person the true understanding of the word cannot be obtained.
