Good Advice


An opinion about what could or should be done.  Advice can be good or bad.


Offer advice to; counsel.  To recommend, suggest.


Something that has been verified.

God established the fact Jesus is his beloved Son and that He (God) is well pleased with Him (Jesus).  Matthew 3: 16, 17.  As man would say “you can take these facts to the bank”.

Here is a fact that Jesus said:  Matthew 7: 21 “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.”

Now go to Mark 9: 7 “And there was a cloud that overshadowed them: and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.”

God has spoken when he told man to listen to his beloved Son which was very, very good advice.  Man has a bad habit of adding the word “but” to the equation.

A good example of this is found in John 14: 15 when Jesus states that if you love me keep my commandments.  Man takes these words of Jesus and states “but one does not have to be baptized to be saved; one must only believe”. 

Jesus said in Mark 16: 16 “He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.”

Man does not have the power to change the Word of GOD!

The Word of God

A few things we need to know about the Word of God:

The Bible (The Word of God) is in two parts.  Part One is the Old Testament which is comprised of 5 Books of the Law, 12 Historical Books, 5 Poetical Books and 17 prophetical Books.  Part Two is the New Testament which is comprised of the 4 Gospels, the Book of Acts, 21 Epistles and Revelation.

2 Timothy 3: 16, 17 we are told that “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 perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

Ok, we know that God provided man with his inspired Word.  What else does man know about the Word of God?  Man does not have the authority to add to or take away from the Word of God.  Deuteronomy 4:2; Deuteronomy 12:32 and Revelation 22: 18, 19.  Man must rightly divide the Word of God, 2 Timothy 2: 15.  Man must also live by every Word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God, Matthew 4:4.
