Display Chapter and Footnotes
10 I the LORD search the heart, I try the mind,2 to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings [works].
2 When you go to silently wait on the Lord and listen, he will search your heart and try your mind. He will show you your sins and with your regret and sorrow, take even the desire to sin out of your heart, purging you of evil. By mercy and love, truth and fidelity, iniquity is purged out of the heart. Pro 16:6. Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump. 1 Cor 5:7. The Lord gives every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings (works).
I the LORD search the heart, I try the mind., Heb 4:12 says the Word of God is a discerner and judge of the thoughts and intents of the heart, which proves the Lord is the Word of God that Hebrews refers to. Christendom tries to tell us that the Bible is the Word of God, but clearly the Bible cannot discern and judge the thoughts and intents of the heart — only the Lord can do that, and certainly no book could. Even the Bible speaks of scriptures and Word of God differently. They say the Bible is the final word of God, and a closed book; they say God no longer speaks. Christendom perishes for lack of knowledge. They are stone deaf and totally blind. The Bible is the letter. The letter kills; the Spirit gives life. Those who believe the Bible is the source of truth, making it their source of Jesus, making it their God, have made the Bible an idol. From the Word of God within: "Woe be to them, for they have coupled an external form between the love of God to man," For more on how the Bible is worshiped, instead of Christ, read the astute testimony of the 18 year old Christian martyr, James Parnell.
