The overriding objective of The Locker is to demonstrate the necessity for obtaining Biblical understanding rather than being content with mere mental knowledge. Therefore, it is my hope that by reading the examples of the understanding I have received, you will be motivated to actually seek understanding of your own.It is understanding, and not knowledge alone, that Solomon said was greater than fine gold, and that nothing you desire compares with understanding the word of God.
Make no mistake about it, you can understand the hidden truth of the Bible on your own, without the aid of someone with a theology degree. But you must seek it. I cannot give you understanding, because it cannot be taught. It must be discovered by means of revelations from the Holy Spirit.
If you receive my teaching or someone else’s, you have only added to your encyclopedia of knowledge. You have the knowledge, but the teacher hopefully has the understanding. There is no freedom, no life, for you in learning of either my or another teacher’s understanding. When all a believer has is knowledge of a teacher’s understanding, that believer is bound to the teacher for direction. In my mind, that is not freedom. Paul wrote in Galatians, “It was for freedom that Christ set us free.” (Galatians 5:1) He finished this verse with a warning, “Therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery.” In other words, don’t allow yourself to become bound to someone else’s understanding for spiritual development. My hope is that by showing you what I have come to understand, and by providing useful techniques to guide you to your own understanding, you will be moved to lift your Bible study to a whole new level from knowledge alone to your own understanding.
The Locker is divided into four parts.
• Part 1 is drawn from my personal experience. In it I describe how sin can accumulate in a believer’s mind and become roadblocks that can prevent the truth from reaching the heart. I have likened this phenomenon as a condition I’ve named Cluttered Mind Disorder or CMD. Also included are sections on the critical role of parables as well as the role of the Holy Spirit in Biblical understanding and Bible study.
• Part 2 contains a study on a much debated subject, the timing of the day of the Lord. The purpose of this study is not merely to inform. Instead, my intention is to present an example (not an exhaustive dissertation) of how Biblical understanding is gained. Rather than try to show you how much I might know (compared to the knowledge of God none of us knows very much so there is no reason for exalting oneself), I am most interested in showing you that you can indeed come to rightly understand the Bible on your own.
• Part 3 discusses the very real crisis of false prophets that exists in the Church today.
• Part 4 presents important conclusions concerning CMD and the pathway to wholeness as a true believer and follower of Jesus Christ.
