I just recently started a new devotional blog (my first). Check it out, if you'd like. It's called "radiantdevotionals.wordpress.com".
I think it's sad that so many people wander through life without really feeling "love of neighbor". I always think of Jesus' parable, how the one proving to be "neighbor" was a stranger of a very different faith of the victim... I just ended a relationship with a religion who admonished "love of neighbor" but we were led to feel superior to our God loving brothers of other faiths! That is NOT Christian love at all.. Jesus died for ALL.. not just a few...
Hello, i'm new to this group and this site.It was introduced to me by my sister and i was reading some of the other groups and found this one the most interested. I read some of the comments and figured out that it will be a great group. I wanna get to know Jesus better. I don't go to church but I will want start going. I don't know my bible well and i really don't read it everyday but I will want to know more about it. I may not be on this site everyday because I still go to school.
i'm about to study of the significance of almonds in the bible after reading num.17 about aaron's rod that budded ad i saw somethig else about almonds in the book of ezekial
Let's go through the book of Revelation. It may be one of the toughest books to understand but I think we can learn a lot together and through the teaching of the Holy Spirit. Use a KJV bible without commentary. Ask the Holy Spirit to teach you in a prayer before you read. Here is the teaching I am going to see as I read it. Pastor Steven L Anderson did a series on Revelation in January if you want to hear the teachings. http://www.faithfulwordbaptist.org/page5.html
If you still havent done the switch and dont understand why anyone would only have one bible versions I hope you will take this challenge and read these articles on the matter and see if they make a difference in your life.
Hi I'm new to this group.. I just love God and currently without a home church and I love studying my bible.. love learning new thgs about Jesus..
The Rapture is AFTER THE TRIBULATION.
How many believe we all believe in the same God. That all religions and roads lead to the same place, that all denominations are equal?
Let's learn a bit about the Mormons. If you have any good links, please add on to this discussion. Here is one of my top 5 favorite websites and an article about Mormons on it: http://www.biblebelievers.com/jmelton/Mormons.html

http://www.bblessedtoday.com/2011/12/esther-chapter-7-10.html Last part of Esther, enjoy the book and the movie. please visit and watch this romantic and exciting movie. God bless. Let me know what you think.
I revised the first Esther one a bit. Here is Chapter 4-6 plus the movie parts 4-6. http://www.bblessedtoday.com/2011/12/esther-chapter-4-6.html
Please read Esther Chapters 1-4. This link includes the movie. Please read the book because the movie adds characters and things that are not in the bible for entertainment purposes. The movie is very well done and very romantic. You will enjoy this book of the bible. http://www.bblessedtoday.com/2011/12/esther-chapter-1-4.html
1) Luke joins the apostles in this chapter, can you find the evidence? 2) Do you think Lydia is born again? Why? 3) What caused the jailer to believe? http://www.bblessedtoday.com/2011/10/acts-16-reading.html
1) What did the apostles say is needed for salvation? (verse 7-8) 2) James talks about the gentile Christians. What is his suggestion ? (v 19-20) 3) What method did the church use to spread this information? (v 25-26) 4) Who was this information really coming from? (v 28) 5) What happened between Mark, Paul and Barnabus? (v37-40) http://www.bblessedtoday.com/2011/10/acts-15-reading.html
http://www.bblessedtoday.com/2011/10/acts-14-reading.html.1) At Lystra a cripple is healed. What kind of character did this person have before he was healed and what was the reaction of the people who saw it? 2) What were the people in Lystra believing before Paul and Barnabus began to preach to them?3) What kind of people would these be in the country you live in? 4) Paul and Barnabus return to Lystra in Acts 14:21. Why did they go back? And how will this reason encourage and affect us today?
1) What Old Testament prophecies did Paul refer to in talking about the Ressurection of Jesus? 2) What did the Jews do in jealous opposition to Paul and Barnabus? 3) Why did Paul and Barnabus turn to the Gentiles and what Old Testament reference can you give for it? SEE the Bblessedtoday website for audio and reference verses http://www.bblessedtoday.com/2011/10/acts-13-reading.html
http://www.bblessedtoday.com/2011/10/acts-11-reading.html .....1) Sum up Herod's character from verse 1-4 and 18-23. How and why was his life abruptly ended? Are we living to the glory of God? (see 1 Cor 10:31) .....2) Prayer was the church's weapon to free Peter. Those who had prayed did not believe what had happened was true in v 14-15. Do you believe intercessory prayer can do great things? (see 2 Cor 1:18-11 and Eph 3:20-21)
1) What truth had Peter learned from the vision? (Acts 10:28, 34-35) Notice that the work could not develop until Peter had learned this. Is our unwillingness to learn some divinely-revealed truth hindering God's work in and through us?
Stephen, the first Christian Martyr. http://www.bblessedtoday.com/2011/09/acts-7-reading.html

http://goo.gl/KR9Ng Acts 5 Reading, Annanias and Sapphira, if you dont know about them, find out. And who did they lie to? Reply to me if you know.
http://www.bblessedtoday.com/2011/09/acts-4-reading.html I like this one where the Jews are trying to shut up Peter and John and they said, should we listen to you or to God? They were speaking under the influence of the HolySpirit with power and boldness and many were turning to Christ but they could not shut them up.... the church chose prison and death over the truth. Isn't this happening to us today? The Atheists in the USA on our tails trying to shut us up and Muslims in the Middle East.
http://www.bblessedtoday.com/2011/09/acts-3-reading.html Just a little teaching for you....Muslims in the chatrooms say Deuteronomy 18:18 is concerning Muhammad. Not so. Moses was talking to the Israelites....that prophet was to be an Israelite....Acts 3 shows you that prophet is JESUS. John 14:31 But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.

Starting at Romans 1, read a chapter a day. This book is one of the toughest books of the bible and so much is in here! So instead of 3 chapters a day, let's do one chapter a day. I put a lot of helps to my website to help you study Romans. http://www.bblessedtoday.com/2011/08/romans-chapter-1.html If you have any other suggestions I welcome them. I have salvation on my mind lately and I have been looking into the Romans Road gospel soul-winning witnessing tool.
I have divided Isaiah into 22 parts, 3 chapters each. There are 66 chapters in Isaiah. I am posting the posts on my website www.bblessedtoday.com, if you missed reading this, you can always go to the "Search Site" feature.
