Proverbs 4:7 says: 7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. (NKJV)
So, how do we know what is truth and what is not and how do we get understanding and wisdom?
The Bible tells us that the Holy Spirit will lead us into all truth. In the 16th Chapter of John we read: 13 "However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. 14 He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you."
Jesus is speaking to believers here.
So, as we put together the things the Bible tells us, we learn that the Holy Spirit will guide believers into all truth. But will He guide us all at the same time? I don't believe so. Jesus declared that He had more things to tell but said His listeners were not ready for it. I believe that holds true today too.
Our relationship with God is a tenable, precious thing that grows as our relationship with Him grows. I am not saying one person is more "saved" than the other but that some may be able to be taught more than others. We need to be willing to be taught--willing to hear--willing to "get wisdom."
We know from the very first chapter and first verse in Genesis that: "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." Where else does the Bible speak of the beginning? In the very first verse in the book of John, we are told that: "In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God."
From just these two verses, we can get much wisdom and from those two verses we can also see that the Word of God was with God in the beginning. We are proving scripture by scripture and they are in agreement. We even see in the 26th verse in the book of Genesis, that God said, "Let us make man."
The Word of God is Jesus and in the third verse of John we also see that the everything was created by Him and without Him nothing was made that was made. Once again, scripture proved by scripture.
This first little step into the scriptures is a wonderful way to begin to see what the Word of God is saying to us. However, to those unwilling to repent, unwilling to turn to surrender to Jesus, the Word of God is not easily discernible.
We are told in the 5th Chapter of John, the 39th & 40th verses that Jesus said to some of the Jews who did not accept Him: "You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me. But you are not willing to come to Me that you may have life."
Isn't it interesting that Jesus tells some of the Jews that they are searching the scripture and coming to the conclusion that they have eternal life erroneously?
So, yes. There can be wrong interpretation. But the Holy Spirit will not lead you in the wrong direction. However, you must be willing to hear the truth to receive it.
And the truth will always glorify Jesus. Always. For He is truth.
