The Gospel is the
Good News of God given to all men.
A Gift in value of which, no amount of money can be
presented to secure It. Yet, this Gift is free to all
who would receive it.

For the Word said, "Receive my instruction, and not silver; and
knowledge rather than choice gold. For wisdom [is] better than
rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be
compared to it" (Proverb 8:10,11).

Introduction

"Truth," What is it? With so many religions proclaiming to follow and teach The Word of God, how do we know which religion has The Truth. What is The Truth? Can a person find The Truth by studying all the religions in the World? Is there anyone who understands The Truth of God and can make The Truth known to men? Is there anyone who cares more for The Truth than the traditions of men? And shouldn't there be one religion following the principles and teachings of God through HIS Word? Or did God provide more than one Way that leads to Life that we might choose the way that fits best to our understanding?

The answers to these questions are important to us, but more important is the source of these answers and whether or not the source can be trusted, since our lives depend on it. I know that I can give you my opinion in answering these questions just as well as any other person can, but since our lives depend on following The Truth; we must rely on The One who is The Truth to guide us to The Truth. For the opinions of men are as the number of men and women, who are living on this earth seeking to find The Way of Truth, and can't find it. So the question is not whether or not you will receive my opinion, or I might receive yours, but What has GOD revealed to you and me of The Truth?

The Word said, "Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out. And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all (men) unto me." (John 12: 31,32) In other words, if we are seeking to know The Truth, God has already given to us "Judgment" that we might know The Truth for ourselves that the prince of darkness in this world would be cast out. Only as we are willing to lift high The Word of Truth over the words of men will He--The Truth of God, draw all unto Himself.

This Web site has been created for the purpose of allowing The Truth of God to be made known to those in search of Truth. It has been created to help those who are in darkness, or those who just don't understand the gospel to gain an understanding of The Truth. It is important that we all receive The Word of God and even more important that we receive The Light of the Word, for He is The Light and Life of man. By trusting in The Word and comprehending the teachings He has presented to us, we will understand The Truth of the Gospel.

IMPORTANT: In order for us to come into the understanding of the Truth, we must receive the Instruction from the LORD in HIS Word that we might come to know Who is the Truth. We must proceed prayerfully in the order presented that the Truth might be understood in our hearts "That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God" (Ephesians 3:16-19).

It is not wise to build our faith on the wisdom of men, because we all have our varying ideas of what is Truth. The foundation upon which our faith is built must be unmovable. It must stand firm against all that will push against it. The Word of GOD is The Rock upon which our faith is built. He is unmovable and has stood the test of time. By receiving this Rock--the Word of GOD in or hearts, He will establish a Firm Connection in us to the heart of GOD that we might know HIS Will.

By The Indwelling Connection in us, HE would grant us according to the riches of HIS glory, to be strengthened with might by The Spirit, Which dwells in our hearts by faith, that we being rooted and grounded in HIS love, might be able to comprehend with the saints what is the breath, length, depth, and height, and to know the love of Christ, Who by His connection in us might pass to us knowledge that we might be filled with all the fullness of GOD.


The studies presented here on this site are based on "The King James" translation of the Bible. A Translation is a written or spoken communication in a second language having the same meaning as the communication in the first language. A Paraphrase is a written communication using different words to supposedly express the same meaning as the first communication. However, One of the problems of relying on a paraphrase of the first expression is that the phrasing does not always express the same meaning from the first expression. By translating incorrectly an expression, or misinterpreting an expression through human wisdom, one can lead another to misunderstand the true meaning of the first expression. The end result is darkness, or a misunderstanding of the first expression.

Because of man's inability to understand the Scriptures without receiving The Power of GOD, HE has revealed HIS will by HIS Word, Who correctly expressed HIS Will to us and has said, "Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts" (Isaiah 55:7-9).

Most of what is presented here on this website requires the reader to discern The Truth of GOD by The Light of HIS Word. Questions are raised to focus the readers attention back to The Word of GOD that he or she might discern the answer given by GOD through HIS Word.

For The Word of Wisdom says, "All the words of my mouth are in righteousness; there is nothing froward or perverse in them. They are all plain to him that understandeth, and right to them that find knowledge. Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold. For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it" (Proverbs 8:8-11).

The world may desire a version or someone's interpretation, or opinion of the Word of God, but what men desire cannot be compared to The Judgment God has already given. For it was the serpent's interpretation of The Word of God that resulted in man's separation, darkness and death. However, in returning to and trusting in The Word of God, leaning not on the words of man's wisdom, but by relying on GOD HIMSELF to reveal HIS will to us through HIS Word that HE might restore to us The Light and Life of HIS Word in man.

It is The Will of GOD, which is revealed to us through HIS Word, that we must forsake our ways and our unrighteous thoughts and return to HIM. However, it is also the wrong thoughts of GOD in the minds of men and women that keep them from returning to HIM. The incorrect understanding of the judgment and the fear of GOD, has kept the hearts and minds of men and women from receiving The Knowledge of The Truth. They are so fearful of the wrath of GOD that they run into darkness to hide from GOD without stoping to hear the good news of HIS Love. They do not even take notice of The Will of GOD through HIS Word, to have Mercy upon all who will turn from their wicked ways and return to HIM. They do not make The Connection to The Heart of GOD to receive HIS abundant pardon from all their sins. They therefore fail to receive the fullness of GOD through HIS Word.

The only One through Whom the thoughts of GOD are clearly made known must come and correct our thoughts on HIS thoughts. Man's understanding of HIS Way must be seen in the Light of HIS Word and not by the wisdom of men.
