SAINTS BIBLE VERSES STUDY

WHO ARE THESE SAINTS OF THE BIBLE? 

 

What is the definition of a Saint?

1.  One officially recognized as preeminent for holiness esp. through canonization.

 2.  One of God's chosen people.

 3.  One belonging to the Body of Christ.

What does canonization mean?

Canonization is the act by which a particular Christian church or group declares a DECEASED person to be a Saint and is included in the canon, or list, of recognized Saints. Originally, individuals were recognized as Saints without any formal process.

The TRUTH is ...

The act of canonization can never magically make someone become a Saint, but is merely a verbal or written acknowledgement that the person is deemed as a Saint to said Religious individual or group.

Obviously, a Saint was appointed to be a Saint by GOD, even before the canonization process.

Many Christians believe that only certain Christians can become a Saint or that a Christian must have died to become a Saint.

But, is this TRUTH?

SAINTS BIBLE VERSES TRUTH ON SAINTS BIBLE VERSES MEANING WITH SAINTS BIBLE VERSES MESSAGE

There is Scripture that reveals that Christians who passed from this realm to the next (died) were called Saints:

Matthew 27:52-53
 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the
Saints which slept arose, And came out of the graves after His resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.

There is also scripture that does call those that come back with the Lord from Heaven ... "Saints"

1 Thessalonians 3:13
 To the end He may stablish your hearts unblameable in holiness before God, even our Father, at the COMING of our Lord Jesus Christ with all His
Saints.

 

Jude 1:14-15
 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of His
Saints, To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.

 But, the Bible also has many more Scriptures that reveal that living Christians are also called ... Saints.

1 Samuel 2:9
 He will keep the feet of His
Saints, and the wicked shall be silent in darkness; for by strength shall no man prevail.

  

Psalms 34:9
 O fear the LORD, ye His
Saints: for there is no want to them that fear Him.

 

Psalms 37:28
 For the LORD loveth judgment, and forsaketh not His
Saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.

 

Acts 9:13-14
 Then Ananias answered, Lord, I have heard by many of this man, how much evil he hath done to thy
Saints at Jerusalem: And here he hath authority from the chief priests to bind all that call on thy name.

    The Holy Spirit makes intercession for these Saints. 

Romans 8:27
 And He that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because He maketh intercession for the
Saints according to the will of God.

The Bible also reveals that Antichrist will make war with Saints.

Revelation 13:7
 And it was given unto him (Antichrist) to make war with the
Saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.

This was also prophesied by Daniel:

Daniel 7:21-22
 I beheld, and the same horn made war with the
Saints, and prevailed against them; Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the Saints of the most High; and the time came that the Saints possessed the kingdom.

Daniel 7:25
 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the
Saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

Daniel 7:27
 And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole Heaven, shall be given to the people of the
Saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.

These Saints will inherit an everlasting Kingdom.

These Saints will also judge the world.

1 Corinthians 6:1-2
 Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the
Saints? Do ye not know that the Saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?

So, despite what one believes the definition of a Saint to be ...

One thing is for sure ...

Psalms 116:15
 Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of His
Saints.

 Many Apostles and people from the Bible are commonly known as Saints, for example:

St. Peter
St. Paul
St. David
St. Joseph
St. Mark
St. Mary Magdalene
St. Matthew
St. Luke
St. John
St. Mary

Some well known Saints that haven't been mentioned above:

St. Francis of Assisi
St. Valentine
St. Patrick
St. Elizabeth Ann Seton
St. Nick
St. Ignatius

There are a lot of people that pray TO MARY and THROUGH some past Saints. The problem is that not only does the Bible NOT say ANYTHING about praying to her or through any Saint, but says just the opposite. There are a lot of people who were raised, believing that it's proper to ask a dead Saint for intercession for them.

SAINTS BIBLE VERSES TRUTH ON SAINTS BIBLE VERSES QUOTES

Some people think if you ask St. Christopher to talk to God, you'll be protected when you travel.

Some people think if you bury a statue of St. Joseph in your front yard when your house is for sale, St. Joseph will ask God to make the house sell faster.

Some people believe that if you lose something and you ask St. Jude to have a word with God, you'll find whatever it is you lost.

Some people think that if you say Hail Mary multiple times, that your prayer will be answered, and then you have to tell 9 friends about it or all deals are off.

Maybe you were taught this way of praying and never questioned it, but we are taught to PROVE ALL THINGS.

1 Thessalonians 5:21
Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.

So let's do a little probing for proof, shall we?

The Bible teaches us to pray in the name of JESUS.

John 14:13-14
And whatsoever ye shall
ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

The Bible is very clear that JESUS is the mediator between us and God and that NOBODY gets through to the Father without going through JESUS.

REMEMBER ...

1 Timothy 2:5
For there is one God, and
one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus
...

Jesus is the ONLY mediator between man and God.

John 10:9
I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.

You MUST enter in the JESUS door to get to God. 

John 16:23-26
And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you,
Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, He will give it you. Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full. These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you plainly of the Father. At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you.

So we pray ...

TO God
THRU Jesus
BY the Holy Spirit

Again ... The Holy Ghost communes with our spirit and shares with God what we pray for.

Romans 8:26-27
Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities:
for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And He that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because He maketh intercession for the Saints according to the will of God
.

Ponder on this TRUTH ...

WHY WOULD ANYONE HAVE YOU PRAY THROUGH THEM INSTEAD OF JESUS, AS IT IS WRITTEN TO DO?

WOULD THIS NOT HINDER THE PRAYER?

HAS MARY OR ANY PROPHET, APOSTLE OR CHRISTIAN THAT YOU’VE EVER READ ABOUT IN THE BIBLE EVER SUGGESTED THAT YOU PRAY TO OR THROUGH THEM TO GOD?

The entire Christian way is based on humility.

If you still have your nose turned up because of the way you were taught, there's always one thing you can do ...

PRAY ABOUT IT

Just make sure you do it in the NAME OF JESUS
