SERVING GOD UNTO THE UTTERMOST PART OF THE WORLD
THROUGH HOLY SPIRIT POWER

ACTS 1:8


Welcome to our web site.  We would like to call your attention to our new index on the left side of this page.  When you click on “Cemetery” you will pull up another index that will list the names and location of many of the churches in our area.  If you click on the name of one of the churches listed, you will be taken to another page where you will find a list of every person that we know are buried in their cemetery.  It is our intention, as time permits, to list the names and location of many of the area churches and the names of those who are buried in their cemeteries. The next page listed in our index is “GLEANINGS”.  There you will find the newspaper articles we write explaining the Bible (the titles are preceded by the letters “GE”) as well as other articles we are writing as we continue our worldwide ministry.  Although the articles are easily understood and confirmed by God’s Divine Word, they go deeper into God's Word than most other Bible studies.  It is our desire to share the meat of the Word of God with you, not “milk” (1st Corinthians 3:1-2) and “fluff” (Ephesians 5:1-20).  We suggest that you read the newspaper articles in the order they are listed since they form a series of articles that are interrelated and form a contiguous progression of study. 

We will be quoting from quite a few translations as we study the Bible together.  We are comfortable using almost any translation of the Bible into English whether, for example, it’s the Confraternity–Douay Version, (Saint Joseph New Catholic Edition), the King James Version, the New American Bible or the New International Version.  The wording in most of the translations is different.  Sometimes the chapters and verses may be divided differently.  Some of the books may have a different name or may be spelled differently. Some of the translations have a few more books.  However, if you will examine all the scriptures that deal with a particular subject, you will find that the truth taught in each of them is the same.  One translation might say, for example, “The cow ate green grass and gave white milk”.  Another translation might say “The green grass was eaten by a cow and she then gave white milk”.

15Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.  2nd Timothy 2:15  King James Version
“16. All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for reproving, for correcting, for instructing in justice; 17. that the man of God may be perfect, equipped for every good work”.  2 Timothy 3:16-17  Confraternity–Douay Version (Saint Joseph New Catholic Edition)
“6 He responded, "Well did Isaiah prophesy about you hypocrites, as it is written: 'This people honors me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me; 7 In vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines human precepts.'  8 You disregard God's commandment but cling to human tradition."  9 He went on to say, "How well you have set aside the commandment of God in order to uphold your tradition!   Mark 7:6-9   The New American Translation

The original autographed manuscripts that made up the library of books that we call the Bible were a divine blueprint.  They explained how God will one day live and fellowship with people who will inherit a new, perfect earth (Revelation or Apocalypse 21:1-4).  These residents will have chosen to return love to God of their own free will as they obey His call to (1) come to Him in prayer, (2) repent of their sins and while looking in faith to Calvary, (3) ask that the payment Jesus Christ gave on the cross pay for the sin debt they owe.
"12 Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved."  Acts 4:12    New King James Version

We certainly invite your suggestions, questions and comments as we continue to serve God through this ministry.  We are also interested in knowing how this site has blessed you so we have included both of our mailing addresses on the “CONTACT US” page.  If we do not answer your e-mail right away it might mean that your message was filtered out.  In that case, please correspond with us through our post office address in Evergreen Louisiana.
