Acts 17:11

These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.


This group of Christians were Berean Jews, and he even says that they were a better group of people than those in Thessalonica. The reason they were more noble than those in Thessalonica was because they didn’t just follow men, they followed the Word.


These people had developed a routine of daily studying the Scriptures to find truth, meaning, and guidance from it to apply in their own personal walks with God. They had developed this routine with eagerness of heart and mind. They wanted to find the truth, they didn’t just wait until the truth came to them. So what they found they searched the Scripture to see if it was true.


It was one day when the church age messenger brought a Message they brought it back to the Word and let the Urim Thummin shine on it, the test came back as positive; it was truth.


Remember, as a Believer, you must with eagerness of mind and heart search the Scripture daily. When something comes up, such as a trial, a difficult circumstance, or question you will already have developed the routine of finding your answers in the Word.


With all readiness of mind, search the Scriptures daily. It is a noble trait to acquire and one that just might  mean the difference between falling into a trap of satan or pleasing God by walking in His Word.

And now, when He shows me anything, I want to be obedient to Him and tell the people just what He told me. So… Have you never seen the time, if you ever see it that it isn't with the Word of God or some error to it, well then, I'm wrong. No matter what it is, it's wrong. It's got to be the Bible. I believe that in the Old Testament, they had the prophets, dreamers, seers, so forth. But they had a way of proving those things of whether they were right or not. If a dreamer dreamed a dream, or a prophet prophesied, and it didn't, the lights didn't flash on the Urim Thummim, which was on the—Aaron's breastplate, the supernatural answer back that it was true, then no matter how sincere the person who believed, it was wrong. And I think after the doing away of the Urim Thummim, as on Aaron's breastplate, I believe this is God's Urim Thummim today, is His Word. If a dreamer dreams a dream, or a prophet prophesies, and according to the Word, his being in the Word, then I think that would probably be that the person was mixed up. I believe that this is God's Word, the foundation plan of God's redemption, and all He asks me to do to follow His death, burial, and resurrection is laying in the Word of God. And so far, I have never seen it yet in the meeting, that I know of, anything that was ever said yet that wasn't backed up by the Scriptures.
