Bible Verses By Topic: Inspirational Scriptures by Subject

by Josh Wiley on June 5, 2011 · Print Print · Email Email

The Bible is the word of God and has so many great ways to study it. Studying the Bible by topic or subject is one of those ways. At What Christians Want To Know we strive to encourage others to read the Bible and our list of articles about Bible verses on different topics is growing. To help to have one place to find these on this website, I have created this post. Please bookmark this and you can come back to it while looking for a particular topical verse or scripture. As we write about more Bible topics and subjects we will add a link to them on this article. If you have a topic that is not listed below, please add the topic to the comments and we will do the best we can to come up with a comprehensive list of Bible verses on that topic. As is always the case, we would recommend that you open your Bible and look at the context that each of the scripture quotes come from for a better understanding of the topic.

So What Does The Bible Say About the Bible?

Isaiah 40:8 The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever.

Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.

John 10:35  If he called them gods to whom the word of God came—and Scripture cannot be broken—

Maybe what we view on TV? How to evaluate if something is pure, good report etc. think on these things.

Thanks for you efforts here

Mr. Sellers. Superb suggestion my friend. Thank you sir for your idea. Please know that we do have an article related to divorce if this will help you sir. Please click on these two links below and I hope it helps. Again, thank you for a great idea sir. One is what the Bible teaches about divorce with supportive Scriptures and the other one is biblical grounds for divorce.

how do u knw when the holyspirit is speaking

Reply

Jack Wellman June 20, 2012 at 7:46 pm

I believe you know the Holy Spirit is speaking to you (not in an audible voice or with a voice you can actually hear) when He, the Holy Spirit, tells you something that agrees with what the Bible teaches. For example, we know that the Holy Spirit would not speak to your heart to tell you that you should leave your family and move out (God hates divorce) or that you should take something from someone (stealing). You can be sure that the Holy Spirit is “speaking” to you when He tells you to share your faith with that lost family member or co-worker and tell them about Jesus or to help pay for a meal for a single mother who looks like she could use some help to feed her family…and so on. If it aligns with what is taught in the Bible, or if it seeks to glorify Jesus Christ, you can be sure it IS the Holy Spirit but if it goes against what the Bible teaches, you can be sure it is NOT the Holy Spirit speaking to you but the enemy. Does this help or make sense Stella?

Great question. Thank you.

I am looking for some scripture on marriage being between one man and one woman. I did find information about that here under the “Marriage” subject line. I am looking for a scripture I remember the meaning of, but not the book or verse. I am not sure exactly how it is worded, but it talks about Heaven, and who will make it or not….an abomination to God if you are man on man, or if you are a thief, gossiper, etc. will not enter into heaven, but the lake of fire.
It was something along those lines. I need to study my bible more. I have a person that is stating God is Love, so same sex marriage is OK, because it is about Love…not the gender.
Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated, as I want to witness the Truth to this person, but want to do it correctly, or not at all, as I also believe false witnessing is an abomination. Thank you very much and God bless you

Jack Wellman August 6, 2012 at 5:48 pm

Thank you Mary for your comments and questions. God is love, yes, but even more than that, He is holy and He can not even look at sin and so His holiness is perhaps His greatest attribute and in His love, He punishes sin. The Father could not even look at His Son on Calvary because Jesus had the entirety of all sins placed upon Him and so He had to look away. God’s love does not negate His abomination toward sin. Jesus said in Mark 10 “And he answered and said, “Have you not read, that he who created them but from the beginning of creation made them male and female, and said, ‘for this cause a man shall leave his father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? Consequently they are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate.”

They said to him, “Why then did Moses command to give her a certificate and send her away?”

Jesus said to them, “Because of your hardness of heart, he wrote you this commandment Moses permitted you to divorce your wives; but from the beginning it has not been this way. And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for immorality, and marries another woman commits adultery “

And in the house, the disciples began to question him about this again And he said to them. “Whoever divorces his wife, and marries another woman commits adultery against her, and if she herself divorces her husband and marries another man, she is committing adultery.”

Here Jesus defines marriage as between a man and a woman. Not a woman and woman or a man and a man. Paul clarified that sex outside of marriage is wrong but indirectly said that sex should be between men and women. He wrote that, “each man should have sexual relations with his own wife, and each woman with her own husband” (1 Cor 7:2).
“You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination“ (Lev 18:22). Just how serious did God take the sin of homosexuality? In Leviticus 20:13 He says, “If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They are to be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.”

Paul wrote, “Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God“ (1 Cor 6:9-10). He continued in the Book of Romans, writing, “For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error” (Rom 1:26-27).

Will same-sex partners go to heaven? NO, but to hell so you must WARN your friend. In Revelation 21:8 it says, “the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.” To make it crystal clear, Paul writes that this lake of fire is the final destiny of those who have same sex relations, “Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders.”

Thank you for trying to warn your friend. Have her read the article link below…it is clear that same sex partners or same-sex marriage partners are headed to the lake of fire.

For more, we have an article called “What Does the Bible Say About Same Sex Marriage” which is full of biblical Scriptures that show that same sex relationships or marriage is one of the most gravest of sins there are.

please my brethren in the Lord Jesus, i need your prayer concerning my life because i have a dream of becoming great in terms of education and i want to become an film actor on stage so that i can have enough money to help the poor that i am capable of helping

Reply

Jack Wellman August 16, 2012 at 3:22 pm

Hello Johnson. Instead of wanting to be a film actor, would you rather not want to know what God’s will is for your life? You can help the poor, but sharing the gospel to save lost sinners is the great commandment of the Great Commission. You don’t have to be an actor to make money to give to the poor. If you can give part of what you have NOW, God will increase your portion and bless you more so you can give away more.

What are some scriptures on kindness? How to be more kind hearted?

Reply

Jack Wellman August 20, 2012 at 5:34 pm

Thank you Jennifer. Here are a few that come to mind:

Ephesians 4:32 Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.

Luke 6:35 But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return, and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, for he is kind to the ungrateful and the evil.

Proverbs 11:17 A man who is kind benefits himself, but a cruel man hurts himself.

Colossians 3:12 Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience,

Proverbs 31:26 She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.

1 Corinthians 13:4-7 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Dear Pastor Jack, The information has been forwarded to the family of the man who, I believe, is still in the hospital recovering from his attempt to end the one life that God gave him. I thank God and you for your most loving. empathetic and humble way of dealing with all of us who have turned to you for help. You are indeed an anointed saint of God who has obviously surrendered his vessel for use by the Holy Spirit for Abba’s purposes and to glorify His holy name: Yahweh.—Niki

Thank you so much Niki for being such a loving and caring Christian. I thank God for believers like you. Wow. You are way to kind to me and far too complimentary for it is GOD that uses me, a broken, empty clay vessel so that His name is glorified. It is never about the messenger but always about the message. I am not sure I am anointed so much as full leaning on, relying upon, and trusting in God Who has the answers.

Hello Cathy. I am not sure which verse you mean. Is it Psalm 139:14 “I praise you(A) because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” Or in Jeremiah 1:5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”

Maybe even these?

Psalm 139:15 My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.

Psalm 139:16 Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.

Isaiah 49:1 Listen to me, you islands; hear this, you distant nations: Before I was born the LORD called me; from my mother’s womb he has spoken my name.

Isaiah 49:5 And now the LORD says– he who formed me in the womb to be his servant to bring Jacob back to him and gather Israel to himself, for I am honored in the eyes of the LORD and my God has been my strength.”

Jack Wellman May 27, 2013 at 2:02 pm

Thank you Olatilo for your question. Psalm 37 is among my favorite Psalms. It boldly proclaims that God will give us the desires of our hearts. Everyone has desires. Each one of us may have different ones. The granting of the desires of our heart is conditional of course. Read Psalm 37 to see what God requires of us but what He gives in return. In this chapter we are told to commit to Him, (v 5), to rest in Him (v 7), to wait on Him (v 34), and to take refuge in Him (v 40). If we do we will delight in Him (v 4), we will stand firm (v 23), we will never beg for bread (v 25), we will be protected (v 28), we will have a future (v 37), we will have a stronghold (v 39), He will help us (v 40), and He will deliver us (v 40). We will receive all of these benefits if only we delight ourselves in Him.

So how do you delight in the Lord so that you may receive the desires of your heart? What is delight? Here is the definition and when you read it, just imagine that God is the focus and subject of your delight. Delight: A great satisfaction and joy; something (or someone) that gives great pleasure; to satisfy greatly; to please. That’s the key to finding the desires of your heart. Take great pleasure in God’s goodness. Take joy in your salvation. Let Him satisfy your every need. Please Him in all that you do. Desires take time. This is where the words of Psalm 37 are clear; wait, rest, trust, and know. If you delight in the Lord, He will give you the desires of your heart. It is not a quid pro quo God, but a God Who Himself delights in and takes holy pleasure in giving us the desires of our hearts. If you delight in Him, He will give you the desires of our heart.

Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart. – Psalm 37:4

Jack Wellman August 8, 2013 at 10:50 am

Thank you for your question. Luke 6:38 is God telling us to give to others who have nothing or little. This doesn’t mean you give your money away but you should support your local church with offerings, help the Salvation Army by donating monthly (the Salvation Army is one of the best charities there are) and give of your time and talent for God will bless and multiply back to you what you give to other. So what we have is certain talents like writing or music to do for His glory or visiting the sick in hospitals or the lonely in nursing homes, donate to your local church, etc. Give of your time, your talent, and your treasure
