"Be in the Word, NOT in the "world"-by famous webdesigner, Eric Bergelund (Thursday, January 14th 2010)

"As Commander in Chief, I takepleasure in commending the reading of the Bible toall who serve in the Armed Forces of the UnitedStates. Throughout the centuries," he continued, "menof many faiths and diverse origins have found in theSacred Book, words of wisdom, counsel, andinspiration. It is a foundation of strength, and now,as always, an aid in attaining the highestaspirations of the human soul."- President Franklin Roosevelt
(from National Bible Week article)

What makes the Bible relevant-legit-factual-most produced read book in the world?

Is It True?....
-archaeological discovery (Bible Archaelogy)
-fulfilled prophecies-especially links from Old to New Testament (e.g. Is 9->Child Jesus, Is 11:6, Zecahariah 12-Jerusalem's/Israelite's enemies to be destroyed)
...more on 100 Fulfilled Bible Prophecies
-it's a historical document that we can learn from our past mistakes, same miracles that happened in the past still happens today, and it's a personal "love letter" from our Heavenly Father to his creation that reads it!

"Christians do not claim that the humans who penned the books of the Bible were always accurate in everything they said or did. We simply believe that the Bible is right when it claims that God guided these men in their task of writing Scripture, in such a way that the result is an infallible book. The apostle Peter undoubtedly said some foolish things during his lifetime, but God did not allow him to clutter up the Bible with any of those blunders.

2 Timothy 3:16 contains the classic claim that the Bible was produced by God, not just men:

All Scripture is inspired by God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness."-Christians

After coming to a growing personal relationship with my Lord Jesus Christ in the Spring of 1996, I've grown in my knowledge of Him through reading about Him in the Bible.

"What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord"-Philippians 3:8

It was very hard to really sit down and just read the Bible at first. Below is a description of the path God had me take to now devote myself a daily devotional time in reading the Bible:

When I (Sal) accepted Jesus to be Lord of my life when I invited Him to live in my heart the Spring of 1996, I was encouraged by Christians to read the Bible. I can pinpoint the the exact date, but when the Gideons came to UMM to distribute their famous small pocket Bibles (contains New Testament, Psalms, and Proverbs only); I grabbed one and went back to my residential "dorm" room to go through it. What really grabbed my attention was the glossary section, which had a Biblical verse reference to every "issue" in my life; somewhat like this=>

Bible Verses by Topic,

If you have the chance to read my personal testimony (eg. racism-I read Genesis, which �set me free� -John 8:32-from many issues I was dealing with), I was in a real desperate time in my life for �soul food� (God�s encouraging up lifting Word) to get me through a big transition in my life (leaving home for the first time to pampered parents of the big �multi-diverse� city of St. Paul to a predominately white rural college town of Morris, MN (where I currently live now as I write this-it�s only by the grace of God!).

In the summer of 1996, after accepting Jesus into my life, I was looking for a place to increase my knowledge of the Bible. I heard of this Bible Study through my sister's friend. I went to this Bible study pretty much in a weekly basis throughout the whole summer. Towards the end of the summer, I began to realize the doctrines of this bible study group; which it didn't seem "right". However, I did get fed (spiritually and physically through their potlucks) that kept that fire going in my heart to seek God!

I went to countless church services at Morris Community Church, where this guy who did a booktable outreach (eg..�Goodnews UMM table 99�-02�) would lovingly lay his hands on me to pray for me to read the Bible more.

I attended a weekly IVCF Small Group Bible Study (led by Eric Kallio, who was one of the inspirations to do these testimony websites of areas of issues in my life after a sermon at Harvest Community Church in Fargo, ND on Sunday, August 10th 2003), which we went through this Bible equipping book called �Experiencing God�. This played a big part in my interest in reading the Bible, which really gave me a understanding-clear open view of His Word! We prayed together and challenged one another to do Bible verse memorization.

As a college student, it was really hard to find a time to read the Bible in a regular basis; however bible study groups was a time to commit that time and be encouraged by your peers to do so. God prepared me to do a new student ministry organization called Alpha for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou [art], and unto dust shalt thou return."-Genesis 3:19

-Joseph is strategicaly in Egypt:"Joseph stories flour in Egypt in preparation for the famine...And when money failed in the land of Egypt, and in the land of Canaan, all the Egyptians came unto Joseph, and said, Give us bread: for why should we die in thy presence? for the money faileth."-Genesis 41-Genesis 47
-"Jesus during Passover tell them that the bread is His body:
"After two days was [the feast of] the passover, and of unleavened bread...And as they did eat, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and brake [it], and gave to them, and said, Take, eat: this is my body."-Mark 14
-Satan tries to tempt Jesus
"And the devil said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, command this stone that it be made bread. And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God."-Luke 4

"If thine enemy be hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he be thirsty, give him water to drink:"-Proverbs 25:21
"5 Every word of God is flawless;
he is a shield to those who take refuge in him.
6 Do not add to his words,
or he will rebuke you and prove you a liar....
8 Keep falsehood and lies far from me;
give me neither poverty nor riches,
but give me only my daily bread. ...
-Proverbs 30

"9 This, then, is how you should pray:

"'Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
10 your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us today our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation,[a]
but deliver us from the evil one.[b]’ "
-Matthew 6

The Psalms speaking today-Hodgson’s new book inspired by ‘quiet time’ reflections on her favorite Biblical verses , By Tom LarsonSun Tribune Published May 14 2010
"When Linda Winter-Hodgson was feeling the spiritual need to reenergize, she followed the advice of friend and pastor Neil Thielke: “Quiet times,” Hodgson said.
Quiet times are regularly scheduled moments for meditation. Hodgson, who has long delighted at every opportunity to read scripture, chose to focus on the Psalms and the positive life stories in them during her quiet times.
"For a year, I would meditate on one Psalm a day,” Hodgson said, “and I decided to write a book about those reflections.”
Hodgson’s second book, “Words of Life,” is a devotional that is subtitled “Hearing God’s Voice Today in the Psalms.” The book was published earlier this year by Advantage Books.
Hodgson took 150 Psalms and used them as a basis for her thoughts and stories from her personal life.
“Our lives are like the Psalms,” Hodgson said. “They run the gamut of emotions and situations, but yet you seem to find good news in them.”
Hodgson knit together a wide-ranging collection of spiritual prose, hymns and poems that branch out from her interpretation of her favorite Psalms. In fact, the book’s title was taken from a hymn Hodgson calls her favorite, “Wonderful Words of Life.”
The quiet times made the project a labor of love, not a labor.
“They helped me a lot,” Hodgson said. “Quiet times became a life-line for me. My days go better when I have time for quiet reflection.”The humanity found in the Psalms made them a natural source for inspiration for Hodgson’s vision for “Words of Life.”
“A lot of Biblical characters seemed to mess up a lot and God still used them,” Hodgson said. “That’s encouraging.”
As she did with her first book, “A Cup of Kindness,” Hodgson enlisted the talents of Judy (Langemo) Roth for the watercolor painting – which was inspired by a Scott Gibson photograph -- for the cover of “Words of Life.” Dean Danter shot Hodgson’s photograph for the back cover, and Pat Theriault designed the book cover.
The writing took a year. Hodgson self-published her first book, so going through the publishing process this time was taxing – after the distress of rejection, she posted samples of the book on a Web site, which was discovered by Advantage Books.
“It’s been a learning experience,” she said.
The book is available at Thrifty White Drug, the Common Cup, John’s Total Entertainment and the University of Minnesota, Morris bookstore. Online, the book can be found on the Amazon, Advantage Books, Barnes for sweet is thy voice and thy countenance is comely."
Do they sound familiar, maybe from the days when we memorized poetry in English class or from a vintage Valentine's Day card? A Shakespearean sonnet or a love poem by Robert Burns may come to mind, but these are not the words of any known poet.
They are straight from the Bible: verse 2:14 in the Song of Songs or Song of Solomon, sometimes referred to as Canticles.
They were the subject of the Learning Unlimited program last month.
Laird Barber, retired professor of English at UMM, took participants through the first two chapters of this poem and some of Ecclesiastes in his talk on The Bible as Literature.
The Song of Songs is the only book in the Bible that is written solely in dialogue, Barber said.
It would be easy to confuse these writings with poetry we know because the Bible has provided poets, authors, and lyricists with language since its translation into English in the 16th century. There is even a new Emmy nominated documentary film series exploring romantic love, relationships, and the future of marriage named the Song of Songs, he said.
But what is meant by literature and how can the term be applied to the Bible?
Laird chose a definition of literature as simply an imaginative construct. Once the Five Books of Moses, Letters, Gospels, Revelation and historical texts are eliminated from this definition, Proverbs, Poetry of Praise such as Psalms, and Narratives like Ruth can be considered literature, Barber said.
The more sensuous sounding texts were probably so ingrained in Hebrew culture that the Jewish scholars could not possibly have left them out of the Bible.
Laird also displayed several versions of the Bible in English the King James, the New Received Standard Version, the New English Bible, the Good News, and The Layman's Parallel Bible, containing all the translations side by side. With each successive rendition the language becomes more simplified and accessible, yet less expressive. Consider the same lines from the Song of Songs in the NEB: My dove, that hides in holes in the cliffs or in crannies on the high ledges, let me see your face, let me hear your voice; for your voice is pleasant, your face is lovely.
Learning Unlimited has planned a number of programs for 2008. The Jan. 9 program will involve discussion of the current state of family farms and the Farm Bill.

reasoning from the scripturesby dan woodingassist ministries Tuesday, december 25, 2001
"RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, CA (ANS) -- An intriguing interview with Ron Rhodes, who went from a show business career to defending the Scriptures. As president of Reasoning from the Scriptures Ministries, Ron has written numerous books to help people answer questions about the Bible, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, sin, salvation, angels, demons, prophecy, apologetic issues and ethical issues. One of: his main focuses is how to help people challenge the errors in the biblical teaching of cults and sects like the Jehovah's Witnesses and the Mormons. ...
I founded this ministry in 1995 and have been working with it ever since. Our ministry helps people literally "reason from the Scriptures" on all kinds of issues. We try to help people learn to reason from the Scriptures with cultists, atheists, agnostics, skeptics, humanists, evolutionists and all the others who hold views that go against Christianity in some way. Our website ( has many materials that are freely downloadable.
Our ministry holds a unique philosophy. 0ur goal in to not only help Christians grow strong in their understanding of God's Word and become equipped with Scriptural answers (apologetics), but to help strengthen them in their relationship with the Lord. Indeed, we believe that a powerful apologetic (or defense) if Christianity is a man or woman who truly walks with God. This is the kind of person that others notice. This is the kind of person whose opinion becomes respected....

Duration: 44:33 m -
"In this week's lesson, we dive into Matthew chapter one by exploring some important background to this chapter. We look at the identity of Jesus, the Christ (Yeshua, the Messiah), and explore some of the key prophecies leading up to His birth. We look at how the promise of a Messiah... a "Great Redeemer"...was given in the Garden of Eden and was long expected by cultures throughout the earth.
We also take some time to visually explore the world we are studying by looking at some maps, and highlighting a few key places. This will help keep us oriented as we move throughout the gospel. "

Special Focus:Jesus the Christ,
How do we know that Jesus was the Messiah?
"..The word "Messiah" means "Anointed One," the name given to the promised Deliverer who would some day come to the people of Israel as their great Savior and Redeemer, "anointed" as Prophet, Priest, and King by God Himself.
Some, of course, are still looking for the fulfillment of these Old Testament promises in the future, when the "Messiah" will come to establish a world kingdom of peace and justice centered around the chosen nation, Israel.
On the other hand, the group of Jewish believers who became the first founders of Christianity were convinced that Jesus of Nazareth was their promised Messiah. The name "Christ" is the Greek equivalent of “Messiah,” so that the name Jesus Christ really means "Jesus the Messiah," or "Jesus the anointed." They preached this truth with such conviction and power that not only many Jews but, later, a still greater host of Gentiles, believed on Jesus, both as the Christ and also as the Lord and Savior of all men...

Woman Uses Bible Verses to Ward Off AttackerBy Alyssa Newcomb | ABC News Blogs – 7 hours ago (Saturday, February 4th 2012)
" ABC NewsA North Carolina woman read the Bible to her attacker for an hour and a half after he slashed her throat before the man apologized and left.
Lindsay Wood, 32, of Shelby, N.C., had just arrived home from Bible study on Wednesday. Wood asked her 15-year-old son to collect the trash can from the curb. During this time, Wood's attacker walked into her home and slashed her neck.
"She told him please not to hurt her, that she loved the Lord and her son," neighbor Faye Cooke told ABC affiliate WSOC.
Police said Wood's son heard what was happening and hid in the backyard out of sight while Wood continued to reason with the man.
"She offered her car up, as well as money," Rick Stafford, a captain in the Shelby Police Department told WSOC.
But the man took none of those things.
Despite her injuries, Wood opened her Bible and read to her attacker.
He listened. She even invited him to her church.
After an hour and a half, her attacker apologized and left.
Wood is in the hospital recovering from her injuries, which required 20-25 stitches and staples in her neck.
Meanwhile, police are hoping to apprehend the man, who didn't seem to want anything more than to hurt an innocent person.
"We want him off the street," Stafford said."

His encounter with Jesus began in the mosqueBy Mark EllisSenior Correspondent, ASSIST News Service Monday, January 16, 2012
"PASADENA, CALIFORNIA (ANS) -- Like other boys in his Pashtun tribe along the Pakistan-Afghan border, he was sent to a madrasa at age four, where he was compelled to read, recite and memorize the Koran.
madrasa in Pakistan“The children mimic or copy the mullah, who is very heavy-handed. You have to memorize out of fear,” says John Taimoor, founder of The Crossbearers, a ministry devoted to presenting biblical Christianity within an Islamic context
By age 14 he was reading Shakespeare and searching for heroes, when he stumbled across the name ‘Isa,’ the Arabic name for Jesus in the Koran. “I read the name of Jesus and became curious,” he says. “The Lord reached me right in the mosque.”
When he asked the priest about Jesus, he was told that Moses and Jesus were brothers. When he asked how to find out more, they told him to find ‘The Book of Isa.’ “Nobody had ever heard of a Bible.”
Taimoor searched for a ‘Book of Isa’ for two years. When he asked his teacher or inquired at the library he was met with suspicion. “What are you up to boy? Do you want to become a Christian?” they asked.
He met a young man at school rumored to be a Christian. “I begged him to get me a Book of Isa,” he says. “He got so scared he never returned to school again. He thought they would stone him or kill him.” There were times Taimoor rode his motorbike 30 to 40 miles because he heard about a gathering of Christians. “No one was willing to give me a Bible they were so scared.”
“Being strong-willed, the more people stopped me, the more determined I became,” Taimoor adds.
One day he happened to meet a missionary passing through the area north of Islamabad handing out small New Testaments. Taimoor spied the man from a distance and hurriedly rode his motorbike toward him. “He looked at me and greeted me like a Muslim and said, ‘This is the Book of Isa.’”
“It hit me like a bullet,” Taimoor says. “I was almost paralyzed.” Hesitantly, he asked the missionary the cost of the book.
“Nobody can pay the price for it,” he said. “If you want it, you can give me whatever you would like to give.” Taimoor fished into his pocket and pulled out the U.S. equivalent of 20 cents.
Racing home, Taimoor underwent a ritualistic cleansing, deciding this would be appropriate before reading such a book. “I didn’t understand it in the beginning,” he says. “But when I got to the fifth chapter of Matthew something supernatural and unusual happened in my mind."

Below are some cool forwards on the Bible:

Subject: The Center of the Bible

This is pretty strange or odd how it worked out this way. Even if you are not religious you should read this.

What is the shortest chapter in the Bible? Answer - Psalms 117
What is the longest chapter in the Bible? Answer - Psalms 119
Which chapter is in the center of the Bible? Answer - Psalms 118
Fact: There are 594 chapters before Psalms 118
Fact: There are 594 chapters after Psalms 118
Add these numbers up and you get 1188.
What is the center verse in the Bible?
Answer - Psalms 118:8
Does this verse say something significant about God's perfect will for our lives?

The next time someone says they would like to find God's perfect will for their lives and that they want to be in the center of His will, just send them to the center of His Word!

Psalms 118:8 -- "It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man."

Now isn't that odd how this worked out (or was God in the center of it)?

Texas oilman seeks gusher from God in Israel
Zion Oil & Gas founder using Bible to find oil
Updated: 10:07 a.m. ET April 6,

2005KIBBUTZ MAANIT, Israel - A Texas oilman is using his Bible as a guideto finding oil in the Holy Land.

John Brown, a born-again Christian and founder of Zion Oil & Gas ofDallas, can quote chapter and verse about his latest drilling venture inIsrael, where his company has an oil and gas exploration license covering96,000 acres.

Most blessed of sons be Asher. Let him be favored by his brothers and lethim dip his foot in oil, Brown quotes from Mosess blessing to one of the12 Tribes of Israel in Deuteronomy 33:24.

Standing next to a 177-foot derrick at Kibbutz Maanit in northern Israel,Brown said the passage indicated there is oil lying beneath the biblicalterritory of the Tribe of Asher, where the agricultural community islocated.

Geological surveys and an attempt by an Israeli-based company to find oilat the same site 10 years ago, a venture he said was abandoned for lack offunds, led Brown to pick the spot where new drilling will begin this week.

Brown said he raised money for Project Joseph from fellow evangelicalChristians in the United States.

From the investment standpoint, they certainly hope to have a return ofthe money, he said. But the basis of it is Genesis, chapter 12.

In that passage, God promises to shower blessings on those who bless thegreat nation sired by the Hebrew patriarch Abraham.
