In George Washington’s last address to the Congress, he said, “It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible.” No man’s education is complete without the knowledge of the Scriptures. Hearing the Word of God is one thing, and obeying it is another. In all preaching, teaching, and ministering of God’s Word, God views obedience as the most important aspect of all. Therefore, obedience, which is submission to the scriptures and a practical aspect of loving God, must be your major goal.
If you love God, then you have to fall in love with His word and obey it. If you do not have a genuine love for God, you cannot submit to the authority of the Scriptures. There are millions of words, personalities, and powers within and around us contending to take supremacy over God’s word.
You are expected to have a strong desire to know God more and to vigorously oppose any other doctrine that contradicts God’s Word. Doctrines that do not submit to the authority of Scripture must be considered errors and false. The Word of God should be an alarm system that can be triggered by the wrong doctrine.

Enoch submitted to the call of salvation, and God opened his heaven and empowered him. He remained in obedience and received favor to walk with God until the day his heaven opened and he was received alive. Noah obeyed God’s word and lived righteously amid corrupt people, and as a result, God opened his heavens. He received enough grace to live when others were dying under closed heavens. His submission to God’s Word pulled down his strongholds and kept him and his family alive.
When Abraham obeyed God; his heaven was opened; he pulled down all his strongholds and made his name great; a great nation equally came out of him. Through him, all the nations and families of the earth were blessed. His seed multiplied as much as the dust of the earth. He was so blessed until his curses were replaced with blessings from above. When his heavens opened, he became the father of many nations, and kings emerged from his loins. He received an everlasting covenant, and the land of Canaan was given to him for an everlasting possession. We are still enjoying those blessings today.
