Life Lessons Learned Part Two

As of this year (2022), I’ve been a follower of Jesus for 66 years; I hope I’ve learned—really learned!—some basic Life Lessons to live by during those years.  When a person is first presented with a lesson, teaching, or new information of any sort, if that lesson or information doesn’t filter through one’s thought processesContinue reading “Life Lessons Learned Part Two”

Bible Mysteries Revealed!

No, this will not be like some supermarket tabloid newspaper or magazine displayed near the checkout counter.  It is simply an explanation of how the Bible defines “mystery” and then examines some of the Bible’s main mysteries.  We’re not going to look at mysteries like a detective attempts to solve mysteries.  If you want theContinue reading “Bible Mysteries Revealed!”

Emmanuel…God With You!

Emmanuel… To me, it’s a musical-sounding word that evokes many memories around Christmas time each year.  Emmanuel is a word used often during the Christmas season—in sermons and in music.  It’s a popular name for churches, too; my wife and I attended Emmanuel Church for a few years.  In some areas of the world, parentsContinue reading “Emmanuel…God With You!”

Joy-Full Living

Some people just never seem to have any authentic joy in their lives.  Oh, they might experience happiness, but joy and happiness aren’t the same.  Happiness (or unhappiness) depends on happenings. Joy comes from God Who eternally lives within us. Some people just seem to fret all the time about the negative, “dark” aspects ofContinue reading “Joy-Full Living”

Bible Study Principles

When I first became a follower in Jesus, I wish I had learned these Bible study principles! Here’s the most important point I want you to know when it comes to the Bible.  Learn the differences between translation, interpretation, and understanding—all of which are imperfect human endeavors dealing with a perfect Bible (in its originalContinue reading “Bible Study Principles”

Revelation Unveiled

Worship His Majesty! What I will share with you for the next few minutes may be new to you.  That’s okay.  Holy Spirit began to share these thoughts with me only 7 weeks ago (June 2020) and I still have much to learn.  Please understand that I am not trying to push these thoughts onContinue reading “Revelation Unveiled”

Hope In God’s Promises

[NOTE: This teaching supplements and “piggybacks” on my friend Gerry Beauchemin’s groundbreaking book Hope For All. I strongly urge you to obtain a copy of Gerry’s startling book at hopeforallfellowship.com or amazon.com] Most of us humans—being self-centered and self-absorbed for the most part—often break our promises—even if we’re well-intended in attempting to keep our promises. Continue reading “Hope In God’s Promises”
