#‎RAD #‎ATEND G-d (Christ) #‎IIC714

Daily Bible Reading, and Structured Bible Study / Devotionals

Good Day,

If you’re like many folks, reading… especially Bible Reading can seem like drudgery.  Some of that is our flesh, see this
Facebook post on “Blaming far too much on Ole toothless (Satan)”, as both Pastor M.E. Woody and Mr. Roland Hildebrant have some great insights including but not limited to: “Why would he (Satan) need to bother, our flesh keeps us busy with problems.” Woody, and as Roland says, “There also is the problem of demonizing the "flesh".”  But some of it is legitimately ‘ole toothless’ and his utter hate-filled disdain for both G-d (Christ) and Christians, and an ancient, deep seated (dare I say entrenched) passionate desire to keep G-d’s children (Christians) from getting to know our daddy.

Take heart folks… As both Roland and Pastor Tim Thomas have pointed out to me, there are numerous really, really, excellent free online resources, that allow one to listen to the various Biblical texts, and they are free to use.  They offer the Biblical texts in numerous English renderings and some of those are presented with a certain dramatic flair, and best of all, they are free to use.  There is at least one online resource that not only presents the audio with a dramatic flair, it also utilizes video, oh and… have I mentioned they are free?  As most of us commute somewhere, for at least several minutes each day, I submit a few choices for listening, while on said daily commutes!

The three most common, that I know of, are:

 * Bible.is - http://bit.ly/2qPm835 - also available as an App (yep, there’s an App for that! LoL) – Thank You Roland
 * BibleGateway - http://bit.ly/2qP3Teb - with at least five different English renderings available in audio
 * The Bible Project - http://bit.ly/2qOVbNd - This one has some very effective audio / visual presentations (OK, NOT recommended for use on your ride, or car… no seriously… NO video distractions while you ride or drive, please drive / ride responsibly, and use audio only!!) -  Thank You Pastor Tim

In addition to the above, there really are a host of other, ‘free to use’, online resources, including BibleHub -
http://bit.ly/2qPfdXP; Biblia - http://bit.ly/2qP1lg8; Bible Study Tools - http://bit.ly/2qP26FP; and also Blue Letter Bible - http://bit.ly/2qP27JY - thus as I say below regarding our predictably unending excuses, spare me.   Sorry NO excuses, if you’re reading this, you can access ^^^ these!

No excuses!

“No Jesus, NO peace” and yet, “Know Jesus, KNOW peace”

How does one get to “know” Jesus?  Simple, invite Him into your heart, as Jesus says: “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me.” [Revelation 3:20 NIV]  How can be assured that this Jesus stuff means anything?  Well because the Bible tells us so, as the Apostle Paul wrote:

“If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.” [Romans 10:9-10 NIV]

And for those of you who say to me, I can’t be bothered reading the Bible, “it’s confusing” or “it’s a waste of my time”, may I draw your attention to what the Bible says about wisdom: “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.” [Proverbs 9:10 NIV]

If nothing else, PLEASE read two chapters from the Bible – (don’t own one, sorry NO excuse, if you’re reading this, you can access this: http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=John%203:16&version=NIV) John 3 and John 14!

John 3:16 says: “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

And John 14:6 says: “Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

Well that’s it, that’s Da Bauz’s Take on, “Daily Bible Reading” – this 22nd day of May 2017 © 2017, All Rights Reserved. wr (Da Bauz, Christian Zionist “creationist” too!)

Just sayin’...

Shalom, pray for the peace of Jerusalem...
