Series: No Longer in the Dark – a Victorious Eschatology | We are all used to figures of speech, we use them everyday. You’ve no doubt heard about it “raining cats and dogs” and you didn’t get confused about what that actually meant. God uses figures of speech a great deal in scripture too. However strangely we do get confused by the meanings. There is a lot of figurative language in the Bible that we just take literally, and hence are confused and robbed of power.
This great message by John Alley will help you to see and understand how figures of speech are used right through the entire Bible, with many examples and explanations. Once you start to get a hold of this, the scriptures really open up to the seeking heart.
