Inerrancy And Faith
As far as the Old Testament is concerned, Moses "wrote all of the words of the Lord" (Exodus 24:4), and David confessed, "His word was in my tongue" (2 Samual 23:2). Jeremiah was told to "diminish not a word" (Jeremiah 25:2), and the prophets consistently declared "Thus sayith the Lord" (Judges 6:8; 2 Samual 7:5; Isaiah 7:7; Haggai 1:5; Zechariah 1:3).

Jesus promised Divine inspiration of the New Testament as well. He promised the disciples He would send the Holy Spirit who would teach them, and help them to remember the things they had seen and heard when Jesus was among them (John 14:26). All these, individually or collectively, show:

"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:" (2 Timothy 3:16)

Therefore, the Word of God is inerrant, and as such, the Old Testament stands as proof of the First Coming of the Lord, and the New Testament stands as proof of future prophecies and His Second Coming.

There is no sequel, prequel or continuation of the Gospel. God divinely provided His Word during a specific period of time as a 'completed work'. What He requires of us is to live by faith in the facts His Word provides:

"For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written. The just shall live by faith." (Romans 1:17)

"Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith." (Habakkuk 2:4)

An account of every sin that can be committed, every problem that man would ever face and their solution is in His Word...there is no need to add to It. We can, and we do 'hear God'...every time we read His Word, and seek guidance from the Holy Spirit as we do:

"But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man." (1 Corinthians 2:14-15)

Every problem we will ever face, and its' solution, is already covered in the Bible. To find the answer, we must seek it spiritually, prayerfully and with faith.
