Regarding those things of GOD that existed before there was a Bible, a Catholic or Protestant Denomination or any so-called “Christian Religious institution:”
First of all, you should know this: No prophecy of Scripture comes from one’s own interpretation. The prophecy came not by the will of man in the ancient times, but when holy men of God SPOKE, being compelled by the HOLY SPIRIT. (2 Peter 1:20-21)
Thus, no amount of translations, versions, interpretations and commentaries will ever replace or usurp the authority of Holy Men of God Speaking by revelation of the HOLY SPIRIT.
For whatever was written in the past was written for our instruction, so that we may have hope through endurance and through the encouragement from the Scripture. (Romans 15:4)
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness. (2 Timothy 3:16)
But not all Scripture is recorded in the Bible. There are missing scriptures like the apocryphal books. In addition, Holy Men of God may have Spoken as they were compelled by the HOLY SPIRIT but unholy scholars wrote, translated and censored many of the Books and scriptures that appear in the Bible.
Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” (Matthew 4:4)
Notice that the Scripture themselves attest to the facts that the WORD comes from the Mouth of God and not a Book or Bible. The Mouth of God often refers to a messenger or prophet of God who SPEAKS or writes (to be read out loud) on behalf of God as moved by God’s Holy Spirit.
But how can they call on Him they have not believed in? And how can they believe without hearing about Him? And how can they hear without a preacher? And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: How beautiful are the feet of those who announce the gospel of good things! But all did not obey the gospel. For Isaiah says, Lord, who has believed our message? So faith comes from what is heard, and what is heard comes through the message about Christ. (Romans 10:14-17)
“As for you, son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel. When you hear a word from My mouth, give them a warning from Me. If I say to the wicked, ‘Wicked one, you will surely die,’ but you do not speak out to warn him about his way, that wicked person will die for his iniquity, yet I will hold you responsible for his blood. But if you warn a wicked person to turn from his way and he doesn’t turn from it, he will die for his iniquity, but you will have saved your life. (Ezekiel 33:7-9)
