In Romans 12:2, in Bible Christian believers are to be transformed and renewed in their mind by the word of God. As God’s child, God’s gives Peace of Mind, inbuilt and embedded in image of God reinforced by Godly thoughts through Christ. The mind is the great work of Almighty God Infinite Whose Words influence the brain in perfect congruent agreement with God. It is important to keep the mind transformed to avoid and overcome inherited sin nature of Adam and Eve unacceptable to God. Issues including drugs often create biochemical imbalances in the brain, so fix thoughts on God to avoid not being of the right mind by fear, depression, abusive behaviours. Guard heart, from it flows all thoughts in the heart. Build Godly wall in mind to save hearts from addictions. Read God’s words to store in the mind.
The Bible says we must not conform to the secular world but be transformed by the renewing mind. Jesus continues to speak about importance of thoughts in mind state of our hearts. So ensure one guards the heart and mind from who speaks into heart and mind. Filter relevant, worthy thoughts to store and sift careless speaking not reflecting God. Automatic conversation, gift of garb neighbourly friendliness banter is associated with being civil and caring for others is good. What is shared is important and necessary to talk. But first carefully check words and your thinking are genuinely in line with God Words to build up your neighbour in God’s Sight.
God’s Wisdom reveals His Ultimate Source of knowledge to help solve problems of the heart. The heart stores thought from the mind. So Christ tells Christian believers to keep the heart and the mind safe in union with Christ Jesus for peace. Many varieties of Bible Christian books and also, some Christian music, movies, TV programs influence thoughts. So discern actions by carefully choosing what your eyes, ear gateways enter to care for heart. Avoid hardened regimented, insensitive thinking and actions, Jesus taught with quotes from Isaiah that people can honour with lips, but hearts far away.” Parents following good news, teach children Jesus heals hearts because Jesus is in the business of heart-healing through Biblical meditation and prayer in Jesus Name.
Refocus, renew, transform mind heart as inner – heart thoughts do affect external the actions in life. Thoughts maintain lifestyle. So filter ideas through Christ blood. Jesus gives His Rich message of Grace to the church. So Christians pray and meditate on word of God as soul food. Read Bible daily as God is the greatest writer to truly experience happened in Bible be actively involved in process of faith journey true faith storyline. Remember where the mind goes body follows. Seek God; Seek His Word, Be lead by the Holy Spirit for within the pages of the Bible lies Godly Wisdom. Answers to life, health, work, family, business, wealth, riches, assets, property, all needs is in God.
There’s a huge variety of books, movies, music influencing thoughts and actions. The eyes and ears are gateways to the heart so we care for the state of our hearts. To avoid hardened regimented, insensitive thinking actions, Jesus quotes Isaiah for people honour with lips, but hearts far away. The bible has so many good advantages and good side effects from Bible that impacts life positively. The issue is there are too many distractions vying for one’s attention and focus so often the personal care of one’s heart and mind is kept on the back burner. Then people wonder why they have no peace of mind.
Some want to indulge and do exactly as they feel based on human directions, opinions blame God if things go wrong. The Bible helps us to renew our mind in Jesus Christ because whatever is read is kept in mind. When Bible is read devotionally it keeps in mind what is read, watched, recorded stored in mind. Believers learn about brain from anatomy books to understand amazing miracle creative power of God. God sees, knows thoughts, emotions, feelings processed. As believers have to consider daily, moment by moment choices affecting the heart mind and body at all times.
God demands to use mental alertness and discipline as little thoughts become bigger issues of life. The mind, body, soul in union with Christ gives the perfect peace of God beyond all understanding in Jesus Name. The spirit and soul are eternal but work through the body, heart and mind. Thoughts take root to manifest in believer wholly accountable to God. Protect heart, inner- feelings and actions. The brain controls mind and thoughts so watch what one puts in. Feed the spirit of your brain mind with word of God and good reports. Be transformed and renewed in your thoughts, actions, and lifestyle. Spend time before you make or choose ideas or entertain any feelings you act upon. People are created in God’s image and so filled with the Spirit of God, the Spirit of Christ and the Holy Spirit. This means a person is not helpless if they choose to obey God. For obedience to God’s words is a protection to life, blessings for good success and soul prosperity. Our brain means a lot to us for a sound mind gives peace, rest of God despite physical evidence seen. God speaks directly in His words in spirit mind dreams, visions. Both the physical and spiritual brain described in detail are in directly tuned in connection with God as Creator and Instructor.
The brain is compelling as seen here so imagine you are a neuroscientist studying the brain images of Christians. Like Dr. Majid Fotuhi, a pre-eminent voice in area of brain science gives advice on how to keep brain healthy. His latest book, “Boost Your Brain,” is of great help to believers because of the amazing miracle wonders of God seen. The idea of expressing Godly thinking from the Bible is the written equivalent of reading a book then speaking about it publicly is a challenge for those who like to have their brain thoughts private not obviously predicted by others.
A standard Biblical life is observed and seen by others, who are a cloud of witnesses around believers who truly know God. In Acts unbelievers testify of knowing ‘Paul and Apollos’ as saints of Christ. whose influence demonstrate God’s Power in actions and behaviour so as a person thinks so they are. The brain in detail reveals many aspects of God’s creation beauty of life. Modern technology has managed to produce high tech. detailed images of the brain and the mind. These reveals the magnificent wisdom of God in His creation. So the mind controls what is seen, heard, thought and reflected upon.
God’s provides resources to show in detail the fibrous mind to see enhanced images of the brain. This indepth details reveal the function of brain networks and how this monumental complexity might be understood. Scientists agree with God we must improve the value of boosting the brain to feed the mind. So healthy thoughts keep heart purely by feeding brain great soul food function and detect dementia, Alzheimer’s the HCP early. Learning disabilities like dyslexia are marked by variations in the brain language pathways. So thought processing and word analyses of disability requires support and help. God’s brain creation is so majestic nobody is capable of such highest intelligence and wisdom of God. So give God All Due Credit, Glory, Honour in Jesus Name.
In Psalm 105:1, O give thanks to God. Call upon His Name, make known His Deeds among the people. Thanks be to God for His Gifts it is good to thank God in all things.

Jesus calls the disciples to make them fishers of men. It Christ Jesus who enables and empowers to become efficient competent fishers of men. Matthew 4:19 states followers of Jesus Christ must be fishers of men like the disciples. The disciples were seasoned and experienced fishermen. While busy on the job at work, Christ called and chose them to become fishers of men. Fishermen are extremely hard working people. Most risk lives in all kinds of extreme weather conditions to bring best catch of fish to people to enjoy. Sometimes gone for weeks or months at a time into deepest waters chasing fish best environment.Christ Jesus saw the natural desire and sacrifices to bring the best fish qualified them as supernatural requires human fishing job description. Fits good quality of endurance unpredictable experience of fishing. No two days at sea is quite the same. Some days have high tide, low tide, storms, avalanches, drought and even risk to life. They were suitable as fishers of men yet without guarantee of best fat cat multimillion bonuses paid by Christ for services. They had bounty days of abundance so abound yet other days of no catch so no source of income despite hard work and efforts put in. Jesus sent 70 followers two by two to go out to share the Gospel good news. And have strength in Christ with boldness of humility. After His audacity to demand you drop the only reliable job you ever have for many generations in family. To say follow Him seem ridiculously insane but that is Christ for you this is why establishment and the system could not figure Christ out. Jesus did not follow a high church protocol standard selection sophisticated method for priest. Require years of Bible College Seminary training and induction of approval by executive committee board members hand picked by CEO. They went through His rigorous novitiate type apprenticeship training on the job to qualify for their job. Christ chose fishermen for their spiritual and practical knowledge track record. Christ had upbringing of the Jewish Torah in synagogue and at home, prepared. Had knowledge to understand word of God. The men were responsible for upkeep of family as responsible used to taking care of family so can interact well.Many feel not qualified to be the fishers of men so cannot express self well, or has no College Education, did not go to Seminary of Bible College. Some feel they do not know or understand the Bible or feel mature spiritual to talk to others about salvation. Others may feel life circumstances are not yet in order or good to declare Christ to people. In extreme cases personal problems or the past seem to deter from facing others as fishers of men. Feel imperfect enough so unable to face name calling. Some feel uncomfortable in own skin may not bother to leave luxury cosy lifestyle. To associate with the people perceived not of as of equal class, kind, status, wealth.
To some it costs too much boldly declare as fishers of men. The Fiery furnace suffering, persecution trial in Christ cost too much to bear may feel uncalled to fish for all mankind. Think of the burden privilege pressure managing fish school harvest outweighs material rewards. Dedicate life to be responsible for maintaining harvest of fish is a great job. Ensure fish fresh preserve in the right environment temperature, stored properly is not an easy task. Fish stock supply is available prepared dressed to serve to impress Christ and God is tough job not for faint hearted. The fisherman equips the fish live in fresh, clean, pure environment. Appealing to the aroma of fragrance of Jesus in the appropriate holy, righteous garments is commitment and long-term process. Cycle continues in life of fishers lifetime management of fisherman until Master Jesus collects His fish order.The job descriptions as described means some count the cost. By worrying about implications, some abandon ship even before it set sail. Billions of people need to hear Gospel Good news for personal salvation. Christian believer fishing in the Strength of GOD Almighty, through Power of the Authority of Christ Jesus Name as Head of the Church. Fishers of men remain grounded and rooted in Christ as the branch of the True Vine. Secular worldly manipulation salesman tactics to get rich scum scheme will not work. Fisherman of Christ eternal call beyond material rewards manmade get rich quick bonus. Is sacrifice, self-denial no selfserving aggrandisement first but dedication no cheering fans, to rescue souls perishing and accountable to God. Remuneration is excellent to count the number of souls won. Not popular with material monetary reward wage, salary, or complementary benefit mechanism. Prince of Peace Christ will gives perfect Peace pass human understanding. God’s people are created go live Peacefully in safe environments. Jesus said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men. They obeyed immediately and gave also their ships and fishing nets lent to Christ Jesus to use to preach. By following Jesus in Luke 5:1-11 disciples caught more fish breaks all records. So had to call for more boats to collect extra harvest of fish landed.Human fishing profession is greatest business for soul winning. Regardless of our profession or daily labour, the need for Jesus’ followers is serving God doing work for the One true God. Simon Peter, like you and me understood the greatest honour and thanksgiving is to win souls for God as stars for Jesus. The fishermen had spent all night fishing, and now had beached their boats, and were off to the side cleaning their nets. They were able to harvest more than ever before. With Christ on their team their fate changed.Christ rewards all asked to launch into the deep in future. Christ feels and sees so meets all needs on the job. So put into action the characteristics needed to be a great fisherman, and see how they can also make you into great fishers of men so word applies to all of us. To become a fisher of men you need to seek God’s face and with the help of Christ you can in Jesus Name. With God all things are possible. God’s calls equip and provides Divine Helpers to team up with for God’s Glory. Jesus’ sweet voice is calling and saying, Follow me and I will make you fishers of men. It is is important to note although we are not made all we shall be, the fields are ripe for harvest. God is sounding a call to all Christians to participate in bringing in end – time soul winning. Courses specializes in the training a person to person evangelism. Get help if willing to accept and obey Christ’s Command to be fishers of men. It is a command to ho into all the world to make disciples to win souls for God in Bible. God says in Ezekiel 3:33 and 33:3 tell people about God to be saved if you don’t and they perish God will demand their blood from your hands. You do not argue with anyone just tell them Jesys loves them to ho and read about His life themselves to learn to find out more.

In Latin biblia sacra “holy books” translates in Greek to τὰ βιβλία τὰ ἅγια ta biblia ta hagia, “the holy books.”The word βιβλίον literally means “paper” or “scroll” so used as the word for the Books of the Bible.
The individual volumes of books of the Bible exist thousands of years. The testimony of the texts of the individual books of the 27 Books of the New Testament are dated to the 1st Century CE. The oldest surviving Hebrew manuscripts including the Dead Sea Scrolls date to about the 2nd century BCE as fragments and some are stored at the Shrine of the Book in Jerusalem. The oldest record of the complete text survives in Greek Translation called the Septuagint dating to 4th century Codex Sinaiticus. The parchment pages of the late 4th to 6th century biblical manuscripts, recently placed on view in the middle of the room, were originally intended to be handled and turned gently, most likely, as a part of the liturgy, by the monks that owned and read them. This parchments are now on display in the Smithsonian Library for people to view.
The Hebrew Bible is also recorded by various writers like Philo around 20 B.C. – 50 A.D. as a learned Jew of Alexandria and contemporary of Jesus. Josephus at about 37 or 38 – 101 A.D. as a non-Christian Jewish historian. Melito wrote in 170 A.D. about Bishop of Sartis Origen in 185 – 254 A.D Greek Biblical scholar Jerome 347 – 420 A.D.

With word by word gloss insert between the lines of the Latin text by Aldred, Provost of Chester le Street said this is the oldest extant translation of the Gospels into the English. The Wessex Gospel or the West-Saxon Gospels contain full translation of the 4 Gospels into English.

Recently the Yorkshire Post in Annals of secret history shows in Museum library, Gill Taylor reaching down to a heavy 1480’s Holy Bible carefully placed on the table. It has exquisitely illuminated pages, with blue, yellow, green and red flowers blooming in a great curly capital E. In 1525, William Tyndale’s Bible in English was first published to appear in print. Tyndale was a true scholar genius who felt GOD THEO was excluded in THEOlogy College in Oxford. Most people in Europe were unable to speak Latin so could not understand the Bible directly. The Church acted as mediator between God and people so Priests interpreted bible on behalf of congregations. The Wycliffe Bible of 1385 was based on the Latin Vulgate as the first hand-written translation of the Holy Bible into English. Tynedale, a reformer and genuine Godly spiritual leader. Tyndale holds distinction as the first man to ever print New Testament in the English language. On the left is Wycliffe’s 1385 Bible and Tyndale’s Bible of 1525 on the right.
Tyndale believed that ordinary people should be able to read the Bible for themselves. This spurred him to translate the Bible into English. So he wrote, ‘the Church authorities banned translations of Bible in order to keep the world in darkness. So their intention was not let Christian know God’s Words or talk to God directly. So they might sit in the consciences of the people. Trough vain superstition and false doctrine to exalt their own honour above God Himself. Tyndale’s Bible was first considered illegal so banned and Tyndale was executed. Thanks and Glory to God Tyndale made God’s Word available to Christian believers. King James after elimination of Tyndale recognised and impressed by his name in the Bible, ordered all homes in Britain have a copy of the Bible hence the Authorised King James Bible.
In Matthew 5:18, “For verily I say unto you, heaven and earth will pass but not one of God’s Word, jot, content, title shall pass from God’s Words till all is fulfilled.” The Word of God fulfils all the promised prophecies as recorded in Old and New Testament and continues to do so until Jesus returns to set up Eternal Kingdom on earth. God’s Word is Lamp to our feet and Light to direct our path in life to know and do God’s Will. From writings of Moses through prophets and plus other 39 Old Testament books, God works exclusively through children of Israel and Christian believers. God even uses non believers and animals to do His miracles. The Jewish people gave us Bible and New Testament begins with birth, coming of Christ into the world as the prophesied Emmanuel God with us in the form of baby of Mary, Jesus. God took on body of human flesh in Jesus.
The New Testament is composed of 27 books and ushers in the church age. But the church opened up God’s grace to whosoever would come. This includes non -Jews. The Bible is the only complete history book which tells past history and foretells future events that come to pass. All other history books record the past. It includes Gentiles of all nations and races. The history of the Holy Bible records the history of mankind from the beginning until the day this earth will pass away and a new heaven and a new earth will appear. It covers humanity from beginning to end. No other history book records future events.
Only God possesses such knowledge. He is the Alpha and Omega. The I AM of eternity. The Bible exist as the Word of God from time infinity so is written in from an eternal perspective. Only the Divine could have created this masterpiece. God is much more than His Name describes. In Psalm 138:2, The Bible proclaims God Honours His Word Above All His Names. God Magnifies His Word so Elevates His Word above His Name. God Reveals Himself to His people. God Highly Exalts the Word Christ Jesus by Giving Christ a Name Above all names. God gives us rest of His name with many commentaries and literature.
God’s Words are so vast that all Jesus said has not enough space to put all into notes. The evaluation of God’s Words shows God Himself made Provision in His Manual, the Bible to study and put His Words deep into our hearts. In John 21: 25 Jesus did so many things which, if they should be written the whole world is not big enough for all His books to be written. And the Christian believers are empowered by Jesus’ Words in Spirit and in harmony with God’s Spirit and comforted by the Holy Spirit.
