I’ve been studying the Bible for over 30 years and still learning. I began using simple word studies which is the identification of key words and subsequent search of scripture to find the spiritual meaning. This is a simple study to unlock the spiritual meaning of parables and prophecies. Everything in the Bible is explained in God’s Word in His time. I branched out to inductive studies, which relies heavily upon context. Once the door to context is discovered it opens the Bible up on a personal level with God. Many of my studies explain the process used in each type of study. The goal is to teach everyone who visits the site to form a lasting personal relationship with God’s Spirit through His Word. It is a simple process…. all it requires is a little practice, time, dedication, an open heart, mind, prayer, and the Holy Spirit.
The motto of this site is, here to serve, so we can all go home on a long, well deserved vacation.
Since studying the Bible on my own since 1980 I’ve completed over 600 studies and collected more than 350 key words from parables and prophecies within the Bible. I found that knowing the spiritual meaning of these key words makes the Bible much easier to understand. I was shown a method of word studies that made more sense than anything I had seen before. It took some practice to recognize texts containing key words and phrases that were suitable for study. It turns out that a very simple rule is true for all texts suitable for word studies. If the statement is not physically possible the text must have a spiritual meaning. This is one guidelines found in William Miller’s rules of interpretation.
I’ve also been an engineer for over twenty five years which gave me a keen sense of detail and exercised my methods of reasoning and deduction. I’ve always been filled with a desire to know how things work. That may be a key reason why I am so attracted to this method of study. The Bible was written in a style that could never be imitated by any man.
This is what I’m attempting to achieve with this web site. To explain Bible study in easy to understand terms and examples. If you have any suggestions I would be happy to hear them. I would also appreciate any sites you would recommend as links. I realize that other sites have advanced study methods that can offer additional growth in spiritual life.
