Study   Pray   Show up   Obey

Study your Bible, don't just read or listen to it. Be actively involved in consuming the words of God.  I like reading whole books of the Bible at once over a few days.  Themes pop out and I naturally start thinking how to do the Bible.  Look up commentaries and read about the history and setting.  Most of what I write on this site comes from studying whole books of the Bible and then getting ideas from God. 

Pray daily, multiple times per day, preferably in mornings, more preferably unceasingly.  Prayer is about spending time with your good Heavenly Father, who so much wants you to know Him more.  The most you can do is pray. True God-inspired ministry starts with prayer and seeking His will. 

Show up to work, school, church, ministry events, and life.  Be social.  Be hospitable.  Show up and pray in the Spirit.  God will use you.

Obey the words of God.  Exercise and maximize your God-given faith, so it produces obedience and good works. If you are a Christian, you have sold yourself into slavery to Jesus.  You belong to Him.  But Jesus calls you His friend.  Still, do the work of a good slave which is to obey the will of your master.

Holiness of Spirit, Soul and Body over Time

Spirit, soul/mind and body becomes holy at different times.  At the Rapture, all of our being is completely holy and in Heaven.  Before conversion, we are not at all holy.  After conversion and before the Rapture, we are partially holy.  



Jesus' Sacrifice Romans 3:23-26

Graph showing activities primarily of Jesus before and after the cross.  Also shows activities of God the Father, Holy Spirit and predestined people.   



Cycles of our Life

Includes choice of "praise and thanksgiving vs. pride".   When we are God-focus and praying we stay on the good cycle and choose praise and thanksgiving.  When we are self-focused and not praying we choose pride.



Gospel

Defines the gospel of Jesus Christ using scripture. 



Spirit, Soul, Body, Flesh Explained

Provides the most common explanations for Spirit, Soul, Body, Flesh, Heart, Mind, Emotions,  Will, etc.  It also shows how they connect to each other and what changes at death and Rapture.


     

Types of People in the World

Documents groups of non-Christians and the various types of current and future Christians, God's and our view's and actions towards them, and which group we have effective evangelism and discipleship to. God has a full timeless  view of people, and we don't.  We should listen to God more.

Romans flowchart

Documents a major portion of the book of Romans especially how it pertains to current day gentile Christians.  I include other info from NT and some notes on types of people, what saving faith looks like, and some about Heaven and Hell. 




Salvation Process flowchart

This documents the salvation process, from before creation to end of the world.  It it based on my specific theological views.

Abide in the Vine flowchart

For me it started with this chart. God called me in 2003 to document John 15 vine and branches. 



Heaven and Hell 

This documents the parts of Heaven and Hell, and who is there at specific times in history.  The actual names of the places such as Hades and Sheol are debatable.
