This is a very good question. The Word of God is a language all its own. Even though to an English speaking person, the words in Scripture 'seem' to be English, but actually, they are a spiritual language, which uses our language to impart a spiritual truth, which is not apparent in the English.
for example. sheep, does not mean a four legged animal, in many verses. it means the children of God. see? wheat, corn, and other words, refer to the children of God.
goats refer to satans children.
a river means a nation of people. Egypt is called a river, in Scripture.
There is a foundation in the word, and until that foundation is right in the mind of a person, they will never be able to understand anything right in Scripture.
That foundation is : Jesus is the Son of God; not God himself.
Until people learn who Jesus really is, they will always get things wrong. This foundation must be right before anyone can build a right spiritual HOUSE.
See, House, means much more than a natural building. Back to the beginning. Scripture says Jesus is the beginning. But do you ever see anyone interpret Genesis one starting with Jesus? No, and that is why they have no idea what it is all about.
TREE, is very important in the Word. People think of an earthly, natural tree. It is not about that. TREE means a nation or kingdom.
Mountain also means a kingdom. All of these meanings are found in other verses. It is not left up to us to figure these things out. It has to be proven in some scripture.
Once a person learns the language of the Scripture, and have the Holy Ghost anointing to teach them, they will see that absolutely nothing the world now teaches concerning God and his Word, is right. Nothing. they have it all wrong, hence, these atheists. They are so carnal minded that they are dooming their own souls with their evil speaking against the Holy God, who is so far above us they cannot even begin to grasp it.
The word of God is very deep and wonderful. The deeper you go in it, there is always much more and it is always glorious to read it and find a new level.
For instance, God showed me in a vision experience, that God is actually a full kingdom made up of innumerable members, just as the human kingdom is.
God has revealed many, many deep and hidden truths to me. It would take books to explain it all. I have many deep messages written and on my web site of glorious things God showed me which I have never heard another person teach. They do not get into the hidden truth of God's word, so they just repeat other people's made up stuff.
