Do you know: The bible is not the word of God but contains the word of God? Even the devil had something to say that was written in the bible. Job 1:9-11.
However, God orchestrated the putting together of it. King James Version 2 Peter
1:21. for the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of
God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. In essence, it is not enough reading the bible but you do need to study for personal edification and revelation of what you each word says about you.
It is this lack of understanding that makes a Christian, who puts his or her bible under her/his pillow to still have nightmares or get oppressed by evil forces. You are to be a carrier of the word of God as understood through revelation (Rhema) not just the bible. Blessings and cheers!
