MORNINGTIME 2523
 
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. BUT SHUN PROFANE AND VAIN BABBLINGS: FOR THEY will increase unto more ungodliness. And their word WILL EAT AS DOTH A CANKER: of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus; 2 Timothy 2:15-17. The push here is to Study the Word of God, so that you will Know the Word Of God, so that with the help of the Holy Spirit, YOUR words will be growing more and  more in line WITH the Word of God. No, this doesn't mean you'll walk around asking, "Wiltest thou prayest for me"? That was the old Kings English back in the day when they put together the King James Bible. Actually, that translation was right on, and still is today with a very good track record for the last 400 years or so. Whatever language you do speak, as you study His Word, your language will grow more towards Christ. But for those of you "christians" who almost never even look at a Bible, your language will deteriorate into profane and vain babblings until it eats like a canker. And what is a canker? IT'S GANGRENE. A canker will literally eat away at you physically, right down to and through, the bone. Try to imagine what a spiritual canker will do to you. Here's the definition of "Canker"; (Thayer's Definition), a gangrene, a disease by which any part of the body suffering from inflammation becomes so corrupted that, unless a remedy be seasonably applied, the evil continually spreads, attacks other parts, and at last eats away the bones". A canker WILL kill you, and it only started from some little profane and vain babblings. Thayer's Definition; Babblings, "empty discussion, discussion of vain and useless matters". Satan's slick, look how innocent this "babblings" disease sounds, and where it ends up. ALL FROM NOT READING AND STUDYING THE WORD. "Study" is the medicine to stop and cure Canker. No radiation necessary, just apply liberally a daily dose of the Blood of Christ, and, Be Blessed.
