Some of you enjoyed the notes from one of my old Bibles that I published last month, and I also enjoyed seeing them again. I found some more in another of my old Bibles. I thought I would share some of them as well, with some editing, as before. Most of these were found in my first “preaching Bible” I was given in 1968 after answering God’s call on March 15th. It is an Old Scofield Reference Bible KJV. I hope you enjoy reading them. If so, please write and let me know. I have enough in other Bibles to publish a few more if you like them. Comments welcome.
Holy Bible = Sanctified Book, which means “set apart”. The Bible is set apart from all the world’s books. This is truly the word of God. The Bible stands alone. Since it is God’s word, when you stand on the Bible, God stands with you. (See 2 Timothy 3:16).
Crossing the sea will not make one a missionary, but seeing the cross will.
God is holy. The Seraphims did not say “just, just, just” or “loving, loving, loving” regarding the LORD of host, though He is these. Instead it is recorded “And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory” (Isaiah 6:3). God’s holiness is uncompromising!
When it comes time to die; be sure all you have to do is die!
If anywhere in this Bible you should not find Jesus Christ (somewhere in each book), you have not studied it with your eyes on Him.
Warning to America (and all sinful nations): “The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God” (Psalm 9:17); “Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people” (Proverbs 14:34).
Everything you find written in the front, or the back of this Book, or in its margins, may not be absolutely accurate; but everything you find in its text is the Word of God. Handle accordingly!
I used to have preachers sign my Bible. Many godly men did so. One who signed this one was the late Dr. James W Crumpton of Maranatha Baptist Missions of Natchez, Mississippi. He wrote under his name “John 3:30” which reads “He must increase, but I must decrease” I adopted that verse as my own “life verse”. My late son, Chuck, when he was in school, made a plaque for me with those words, which I still have, and treasure very much.
The Bible will keep you from sin-or sin will keep you from the Bible (Psalm 119:11; 119:105).
God can send a revival in any dispensation (James 4:2; 4:8).
