This is the first post on this new blog so I will spend some time to layout what this blog is about, the reasons behind it as well as the goals and purposes. This post will hopefully give the reader a basic overview of what to expect in upcoming posts and hopefully encourage them to continue on their Revelation Journey as well. I (Timothy) will be the primary author on this blog with occasional contributions of content and scripture art by Shannon. I would also like to include your comments and guest content from other readers as well.
Faith Fundamentals:This blog will be completely God centered and starts with the foundation that He has created us and the world we live in. The Holy Bible will be utilized as the primary study material and considered fully inspired by Him. Various translations of the Bible may be compared from time to time as well as exploration of underlying Greek and Hebrew words but that will not be the focus. Various names and titles my be used throughout for our Creator. Comments are welcome but may be removed if they detract from the purpose of this blog.
Goals / Purpose:Read the blog description at the top of this post for a general overview. There are three main types of post content that I am planning to present on this blog.
I have broken down the Bible (standard book order) from Genesis to Revelation into 52 reading sections, one for each week of the year. I will then be responsible for reading the assigned section each week and then commenting about that portion of scripture in a blog post. I would also like to encourage you to read along each week and post comments / questions about the reading. This is a journey we can all go on together from Genesis to Revelation.
- Bible Study
(2 Tim 3:16) All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.
This type of post will focus on building our faith in God. What He has done and what He is currently doing in our lives. I plan to share some amazing moments of encountering the evidence of God in my past as well as hope to share some new encounters as they occur. I hope that others will share their experiences and testimonies as well, as this will encourage each other and build our faith to enable us to overcome the enemy.
- Finger Print of God
(Rev 12:11) They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.
I have been learning lately that one of the main tactics of the enemy is to destroy our value and identity in our minds. I will be sharing things I have learned about this which I feel everyone can benefit from.
- Identity Restoration
EncouragementLife is a journey and the obstacles and scenery will change along the way. It is important the we encourage each other as we travel. It can make a huge difference in helping us push through the difficult spots and press on. Without encouragement it is easy to give up and think that it doesn't really matter. Doing a blog consistently is a commitment. It was after discussion with a friend that I was encouraged to create this blog in the hopes that it will encourage others on their journey. Please leave any comments below and share this blog with others.
(1 Thes 5:11) Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.
