Believing: He Walked on Water

Believing: He Walked on Water

     I was raised in a good home with good parents who gave me the best upbringing they knew to give. They taught me manners, and one lesson I continue to be thankful for is to avoid using certain four-letter words. One of those four-letter words was “can’t.” The person who says he can and the… Continue Reading

Let the Peace of God Rule

Let the Peace of God Rule

     It is 5:30 a.m. My room is still dark except for the bright red numbers on the digital alarm clock above my bed. It’s quiet. I love this moment when I can ease into my day by speaking in tongues. I’m thankful God made it so simple to praise Him and pray perfectly. Slowly, at… Continue Reading

Willing Hearts: Choosing to Receive God’s Benefits

Willing Hearts: Choosing to Receive God’s Benefits

     My wife and I have the blessing of raising two wonderful sons. Some time ago, while working with one of our sons, I found myself “laying down the law” on an issue. I made it clear to him what I wanted, and he responded with a reluctant, “Yes, sir.” While it was apparent that he… Continue Reading

From Condemnation to Superconqueror

From Condemnation to Superconqueror

Romans 8:1: There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus….      Condemnation is a sentence of judgment that is pronounced against someone. Now, in Christ Jesus, there is no condemnation. However, we still have an old-man nature that reminds us of our past, our inadequacies, and which condemns us when we… Continue Reading

The Scripture Interprets Itself: In the Context

     In this Keys to Biblical Research series, we’ve looked at specific ways the Scripture interprets itself in the verse.

The Scripture Interprets Itself: In the Verse—The Words Must Be in Harmony with the Verse As Well As with All the Scriptures Relating to the Subject

     In recent issues of The Way Magazine we have considered that the Scripture interprets itself in the verse—right where it is written, and a word or words must be interpreted according to Biblical usage. As workmen of the Word, we must also understand that the words must be in harmony with the verse as well… Continue Reading

In the Verse—Scripture Build-up, or Narrative Development

The Scripture Interprets Itself: In the Verse—Scripture Build-up, or Narrative Development

     One of the ways the Scripture interprets itself in the verse is by way of scripture build-up, or narrative development. One scripture may not tell all the details regarding a section of scripture. Scripture build-up means that several passages of scripture on an identical incident or subject may augment the information given in each other.… Continue Reading

The Now of the Word

The Now of the Word

     The waitress was tap, tap, tapping on the order ticket with her pencil. The others at the table were all staring at me with anticipation. I just couldn’t decide. There were so many choices on the menu, and everything looked so good. What was I to do? Did I want the special or something from… Continue Reading

Standing on Solid Ground

Standing on Solid Ground

     From the time I began walking and into the start of first grade, I wore white high-top shoes with steel plates built in on the instep side. This was to keep my ankles upright. These white shoes did not bother me until some of the children began to tease me about wearing “baby shoes.” I… Continue Reading
