K is for…..Keys

20th October 2020

I have said in A Favourable Year that I have a whole bunch of keys, keys to life. Although I posted it as a page in August, I had written most of it back in the spring.

But I meant it, and I still do. I have been writing and writing as fast as I could with half a brain, and my left eye uncomfortable. Checking and rechecking the facts, and my text, doing my own editing, as no doubt most bloggers do.

So I have set out keys on the various pages for people to pick up and open doors that have been locked for far too long. And I have only just started. There is so much more to do.

Still, you won’t get anywhere unless you start, and I have completed the Covid 19 saga. I say completed, there is still coronavirus to explain. And as Covid 19 has other applications apart from vitamin C Or VItamin D, completed is not quite right.

Perhaps completed a chapter would be better. Anyway, this is a starter on keys, so what keys will be helpful?

Simply put, the keys to life can be found bound up in the Bible. This is not to say there are not keys elsewhere, it’s just you will find all the keys you need here.

Unfortunately, as I have stated in A Favourable Year, the translations are not very good in places, sometimes appalling. There are times when the meaning has been swapped round. Dreadful. No wonder there are those who say the Bible is full or errors.

But not in the original text, the Hebrew and Greek. Rather like Covid 19 and the Coronavirus Act 2020, you must go back to source, and not rely on what the media are telling you. Indeed, even what the government ministers are telling you.

I have said it before and I will say it again, check the Coronavirus Act on gov.uk if you dare. It is crap, absolute crap. There are no real powers.

Check the guidance on gov.uk which is easier, but still ultimately crap. I have explained and I am sure you can find my thoughts without my telling you here where to look.

Anyway, as regards the Bible and its interpretation there are three primary keys to start with. These are from the text:

      1. Jesus said ‘You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; it is these that testify about Me’           John 5:39

        When you read the text, whether in the Old or New Testament, it is speaking about Jesus Christ. Not every line as such, but the whole emphasis is pointing to Him. Indeed, something on every page. There will be more than you initially expect.

        Without Him nothing makes sense, and ultimately nothing will work properly.

      2. All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness.                    2 Timothy 3:16

        So all of the Bible is worth reading and gaining wisdom from, the boring bits as well as the exciting bits (and there are quite a few exiting bits!).

        There is a huge amount hidden away for those who make the effort to dig.

      3. …… on the evidence of two or three witnesses a matter shall be confirmed.      Deuteronomy 19:15

        This originally was in the context of legal matters, but equally applies to the Bible and interpretation. Check one passage against two or three others, context is important, what happened or was said earlier in the passage, what happened or was said later in the passage.

        And what was said elsewhere by others, sometimes directly about the passage you are concerned with.

These three keys will stand you in good stead on your journey into life. And of course, if you are struggling then do as is advised – let him (or her) who lacks wisdom let him (or her) ask of God.

Or even old Baldy if you wish, or others who you know follow Christ.

Oh, and don’t forget one other thing. There is an old enemy who hates those who would do what God advises.

That’s Satan, once Lucifer, know known to me as Loopy Lucy. He is behind all evil. He is a twit, and anyone who follows him is a twit too.

Not to be confused with a ‘twit twoo’ which is what wise owls say. So if you become wise using the keys I suggest, you can be a wise owl and say the same of old Loopy and his minions.

I have been sent some images for the texts which you can download if you like. If you have children they might like to cut them out (if you have the heart of a child you can cut them out too of course). Bible Keys
