Excerpt from the Chapter on Inspiration

1. It is more than human genius and human qualification. Inspirations are endowments from God. No man has been inspired to write since John finished the Book of Revelation.
2. It is more than illumination.
a. Illumination means the influence of the Holy Spirit which enables one to understand spiritual truth. Only yielded believers are illuminated.
b. Some are more yielded, and their illumination is greater, for God can work in them.
3. It is more than a revelation. The exposé of records: things revealed by God. Only God knew the record of the creation. Men of God have records of men’s lives, thus proving that the Bible is the Word of God; for when mere man is recording the life of men, he leaves out the bitter and bad. God doesn’t!
4. It literally means “God-breathed”. The Word is the breath of God in a person (chosen of Him) that inspired the person. Today God is breathing to man by means of the written Word. If the Bible is not what it claims to be, it cannot be a “good book”. It is the same in the case of our Lord. If Jesus wasn’t what He claimed to be, He couldn’t be
Alone man is powerless to know God’s Word. “Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the Scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost” (II Peter 1:20, 21). Man needs the Holy Spirit to lead him and to interpret the Word. The same Spirit leads men, but no two are led alike. We believe in a full, complete, inspired-of-God-Bible. Not a partly inspired Bible, but ALL-inspired! One who says that the Bible contains some parts that are inspired means that the Bible contains some things that are not inspired, some falsehoods, etc. They are wrong!

Seven Marks of a Good Sermon
quote from article - "A good sermon has a "take-away" thought(s), and this is what we should leave the building with to change our lives spiritually to make us more like Christ. If a sermon teaches me how to be like Christ, with an application of the information about the Bible in it, and an exhortation to my soul to change, then it probably is a good sermon. But the preacher who has lost the point of every preaching exercise HAS TO HAVE the purpose to spiritually change the lives of the audience, is not a good preacher nor does he produce good sermons."
