Locks are discovered to be both animate and inanimate; so it is with the proper key for the lock; just any ole key won't open a particular lock, only if it is the key that was made specifically for that lock.
We spend years in classrooms reading, searching for knowledge. We dig in ruins of dirt searching for knowledge of what was, we write stories of imagination of what will be; we hear the self-proclaimed Wise Ones tell us that all we thought we knew is only a farce, and that there is little or no truth to be found.
Jesus had a word for those people: He called them "experts in the Law."
In Jesus' time on Earth, the "lawyers" and the religious experts were one and the same. They had an agenda for their act of, "locking truth" away from the people.
"Woe to you, experts in the Law, for you have taken away the Key of Knowledge: you yourselves did not enter, and them that were entering in, you hindered." Luke 11: 52
Those are the words of Jesus. It is a serious accusation/promise that Jesus makes when He uses the words "Woe to."
Today we have self-proclaimed Wise Ones who persecute and malign those who use the Bible as a Book of Instruction and teach that true wisdom and true knowledge are contained therein. Why do they do that? Because they do not want to conform to it, nor to order their lives by its message.
Many, even some in Pulpits of the Church, are builders of their own religion, and yet they do not call the tenants of their faith by their own name; rather they continue to use the Name of Jesus Christ.
In effect they say, "Come to the Bible Buffet! You'll find a lot on the table, and feel free to take what you like and ignore what you don't like."
"Woe to you, for you have taken away the Key of Knowledge!
The Word of God is where we find knowledge and wisdom and truth. It is the Key to Knowledge; it tells us about ourselves and the world in which we live. It describes for us things also that we cannot see with our limited vision. Within its pages are many secrets of the Universe waiting, waiting to be discovered.
The Holy Bible is the ONLY Book that claims itself to be the Word of God. 3000 times within its pages are statements saying, "This is the Word of the Lord."
It's authenticity is questioned only by those who do not like It's messages in entirety.
The Holy Bible is a Book written by some 40 writers from three different continents over a period of 1600 years and yet, without collusion, their messages coincide.
In our studies and usage of today's various technologies we find confirmation of God's Messages to us. Who can question if God hears prayers when we know that a sheet of paper can be placed into a machine on one side of the world and become a printed sheet bearing that message on the other side of the world?
There is a lock on the door that accesses true knowledge. The Key that opens the Door of Knowledge, is The Word of God.
