From the “New Spirit Filled Life” Bible, New King James version: 2 Timothy 3:16-17…
“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. ” KINGDOM DYNAMICS on 3:16…”The Divine Inspiration of the Bible, THE WORD OF GOD. The absolute authority of the Bible over our lives is based in our conviction that this Book does not merely contain the Word of God, but that it IS the WORD OF GOD in its sum and in its parts.”
This text testifies to this, describing the actual process of this inspiration (inbreathing of life):
1. It is the WORD of the Holy Spirit…’inspiration of God’ (literally means’God breathed’). This describes the source of the WHOLE Bible’s derivation (that is, ALL SCRIPTURE) as transcendent of human inspiration. The Bible is not the product of elevated human consciousness or enlightened human intellect, but is directly’breathed’ from God Himself.
2. 2 Peter 1:20-21 elaborates this truth and adds that none of what was given was merely the private opinion of the writer and that each writer involved in the production of the Holy Scriptures was’moved by’ (literally’being borne along’) the Holy Spirit. This does not mean that the writers were merely robots, seized upon by God’s power to write automatically without their conscious participation. God does not override those gifts of intellect and sensitivity that He has given His creatures. (Beware of all instances where individuals claim to’automatically’ write anything at any time, for the Holy Spirit never functions that way.)
3. 1 Corinthians 2:10-13 expands on this process by which the revelation of the Holy Scriptures was given. Verse 13 says that even the words used in the giving of the Bible (not just the ideas, but the PRECISE TERMINOLOGY) were planned by the Holy Spirit, who deployed the respective authors of the Bible books to write,’comparing spiritual things with spiritual’ (literally’matching spiritual words to spiritual ideas’).
This biblical view of the Bible’s derivation is called the plenary verbal inspiration of the Scriptures, meaning EVERY WORD IS INSPIRED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD! “
…EVERY WORD IS INSPIRED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD!
