How to Study the Scriptures
by Eddie Snipes
In this modern church age, it seems that the main problem facing the church is a lack of knowledge of God's word. Solomon once stated that there is nothing new under the sun. The problem we face today in the church is identical to the situation the Bible addresses in Hosea 4:6-9 6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; Because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children. 7 " The more they increased, The more they sinned against Me; I will change their glory into shame. 8 They eat up the sin of My people; They set their heart on their iniquity. 9 And it shall be: like people, like priest. So I will punish them for their ways, And reward them for their deeds.

In 1 Peter 1, beginning with verse 23 through chapter 2:3...''For you have been born again not of seed which is perishable but imperishable, that is through the living and abiding Word of God. For all flesh is like grass and all its glory like the flower of grass.

It has outsold more books than any other book in history; selling at the rate of twenty-five million a year; it is currently being translated into six hundred different languages; and since the turn of the century, there have been over eighty translations in English alone. Of course, I am talking about the Bible. 2. Ninety-three percent of all Americans own a Bible. The average American home has four Bibles.

A Study of Ephesians (1 of 21)
by Zach Terry
INTRODUCTION: Since I was first saved I have been a big fan of Christian books, especially the old ones. You see I have found that spiritual success leaves clues. If you find a man or a woman who is made an impact for the Kingdom, you will discover that they were engaged in certain disciplines, habits, and practices. As you read different books you will recognize that godly people hold many of those habits in common. It is then that you have discovered one of the clues to success. But with that said, I would rather spend 10 mins with the author than 10 weeks with the book.

by Johnny Hunt
In this passage, the Psalmist is seen both triumphing and trembling. He continues to know the power of evil, which tries to subvert him from the living God. His circumstances have not altered, he still fluctuates between contemplation of his situation and contemplation of the Scriptures. He prays against iniquity and oppression. He weeps over...
