Make Your Requests Known

I have read your comments and although many of you are pleased with my writings, there are those who have given many suggestions and asked questions about the blog in general and other information. Because I value your input, I will be making some additions to the blog over the next couple of months. I am one to encourage personal study and a hands on approach in life. This is how I came to have a blog. I had a desire to express to others all that I was getting in my personal study and what I was learning, by observation. These questions that you have asked, have encouraged me to do what I had been planning all along, but just sooner. I will be adding a How To Study Your Bible page to the site. It will eventually become a book, but that is further down the road. The page will include topics like Bible references, notes, commentaries, where to start, hebrew and greek definitions, etymology, ancient history, prayer, and much more. Proverbs 7 is the most popular post on this site. I has generated tons of visitors and comments. After people read the post, they often request that I write more on the subject. Since you all are inspired by the topic and desire more, I will be … [Read more...]

When We First Meet Him…

Genesis 1:1-5 1¬†In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.¬†2¬†The earth was without form, and void; and darkness¬†was¬†on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. 3¬†Then God said, ‚ÄúLet there be light‚ÄĚ; and there was light.¬†4¬†And God saw the light, that¬†it was¬†good; and God divided the light from the darkness.¬†5¬†God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day. First impressions...they are very important. ¬†How we are introduced to a someone will ever shape the very image that we have of them for a very long time. ¬†This is no different when it comes to God. ¬†Here we are introduced to Him as Creator. ¬†This is very important because it is the way in which He first chooses for us to see Him. ¬†In the Hebrew translation the word that is used here is Elohim. ¬†Let's take a closer look. In the beginning, God was there. ¬†Not only was He there, but He was there creating. ¬†What was He creating? ¬†At this point, in it's simplest form...the heavens and the earth. ¬†The earth had no form and was void. ¬†In other words, it was a sea of nothingness, a chaotic mess, disconnected … [Read more...]

Who Is God…

Hi. ¬†Whoever you are, wherever you are. ¬†I would like to invite you to take a journey with me as I dedicate time for the next couple of weeks to find out some very important information about someone who is very important to me. ¬†Some of you may know Him as God, but I call Him Father. ¬†Throughout the ages He has been called by many names by those who have called upon Him. ¬†He chose to ¬†identify and reveal Himself to them in a way that was meaningful, a way they would remember. For many years I have come to know Him as my Father and my Provider, but as in any relationship, I desire to know Him better. ¬†What better way to do that than to learn what those who knew Him before I was even born, called Him. ¬†I want to know how He introduced Himself and its importance. ¬†Not only do I desire the head knowledge of who He is, but I want to know Him as such in my own life. Join me on this journey weekly as I ask, "Who is God?" … [Read more...]
