If you do not have a relationship, [not religion] BUT a relationship with Jesus, you will not understand the bible. Come to Jesus and get an understanding of His word and His ways. Not over night, but yes my friends...over time He will gift you with wisdom, discernment, peace, joy and hope unlike the world.
"When we tell you these things, we do not use words that come from human wisdom. Instead, we speak words given to us by the Spirit, using the Spirit’s words to explain spiritual truths. But people who aren’t spiritual can’t receive these truths from God’s Spirit. It all sounds foolish to them and they can’t understand it, for only those who are spiritual can understand what the Spirit means. Those who are spiritual can evaluate all things, but they themselves cannot be evaluated by others. For, “Who can know the LORD’s thoughts? Who knows enough to teach him?” But we understand these things, for we have the mind of Christ."
(1 Corinthians 2:13-16 NLT)
He is the ONLY ONE who wants the very best for you. His best is way better than your best! Trust me beloved, I've experienced it for myself. NO GREATER LOVE!
