In Pauls letter to the Ephesians, he exhorted: "... Walk worthy of the vocation
wherewith ye are called with all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love. ... There is one body, and one spirit even as ye are called in one hope of your calling ... One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all and in you all" (4:1-6). Joined in
that same unity of Spirit and mind, we, too, can know His care and nearness which strengthens us from day to day.
The Book From Heaven
Bro. Ambrose Tanyepana
1. There are so many terms applied to the Biblical record that affirm its divine origin: Isaiah 34:16 - The Book of the Lord, Romans 1:1 - The Gospel of God, Romans 3:2 The Oracles of God, Hebrews 6:5 - The Word of God, Colossians 3:16 - The Word of Christ.
2. There is much evidence from the scriptures that the Bible is an inspired book: (a) its marvellous unity (b) its superhuman range of teaching (c) its perpetual freshness and universal appeal (d) its transforming power upon the individual (e) the fulfilment of its prophecies, and (f) its indestructibility. The Bibles unity of doctrine is remarkable from its beginning to the end. There is one system of doctrine, one rule of faith, running from Genesis to Revelation. There is one dominant theme - redemption through the cross of Jesus Christ. The unity and plan exhibited on every page of the Bible is clear testimony to an activity more than human guiding the pens of the writers. It is quite clear how human wisdom is eclipsed by the teachings of the Bible. "Where is the wise ?
Where is the scribe ? Where is the disputer of this world ? Hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world ?" (1 Cor 1:20).
3. The scriptures offer a clear solution to all the problems of life. They treat upon God and man, the meaning of sin and suffering and death, of origin and destiny, in a
manner understandable to the simplest, and yet inexhaustible in its profundity. Scriptural words exhibit a coherence and a sense of proportion not found elsewhere in any book.
The Bible is a book from God who is in heaven which ought to be our food and drink so that we can feel its perpetual spiritual freshness. The oftener we read it, the more we enjoy it and the more it builds us up. The deeper the mine is dug, the broader grows the vein, and the richer the ore: "All
scripture is given by inspiration of God" (2
Timothy 3:16) and "Holy men of God spoke
they were moved by the Holy Spirit" (2
Peter 1:21). Let us not be moved or cheated by any new preachers of new teachings based upon so-called bibles like the Koran or the Book of Mormon.

I realized there is
something to know
about God, Jesus
Christ and the good
news of the Kingdom
of God in general.
Really, there is no
other book other
than the Bible.
I am from the Catholic
Patrick Julius Mduta
Church, and my late
father and mother were
both Catholic members. The class where I attend at "Sinza" ecclesia at Kigogo area under my tutor Mr Ayubu Sazi is helping me to learn the gospel. The class at "Sinza" Kigogo was given to teach the truth about man, God, angels, Jesus, the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit gifts, and to know the truth about the difference between God and Jesus Christ. I am still going on with my Bible course at Sinza and my tutor is helping me to search the Bible. I hope that God will be with me. I think that soon I will become a Christadelphian member.
