Yesterday was the New Hope Baptist Church Men’s Fellowship. Last month I volunteered to bring the Devotional for this month. I had prayed and asked the Lord to give me something to present to my brothers. May was very busy here in the park and totally consumed me. My personal studies and Church services were attempted, not to much profit at that. You know I’ve been scarcely around this site or on your blogs.

Well yesterday came and despite the prayers and some thought no work had been done. The only prompting was Revival but surly not Lord. Devotionals are short, positive and encouraging. I have not been long a member, been to two of these, both brothers gave their testimony, favorite verse and a thought or two. I don’t know why I volunteered except it was my turn. Not that I lack material I could use. Perhaps I wanted to introduce myself to the men, wanted them to get to know me, what I believe and something of my walk with my Lord.

I should have been obedient and prepared to bring what was on my heart, Personal Revival. My spirit was not right and my Lord did not bless my intentions. I fired up the old Dell and was gonna wright something, post it and read it at the meeting. God was not having that at all, I was long in thought to recall my name, let alone wright anything. If I had been diligent to prepare something, before hand, Spirit may of taken His lead but I did not deserve to be bailed out. While He may have had some mercy on me and maybe someone was blessed in the end I was laid bare before my brethren. I tried to pull a few things off the site, from the One Year Bible, Mandy’s June 2021 Prayer published on Blue Collar Theologian and Jesus in Every Book of the Bible that Bruce Cooper published on Reasoned Cases for Christ.

First I confessed that I was not prepared. “Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” —James 5:16, King James Version (KJV)

Then I commenced to tell them what a wretch I am and that I’m just a sinner saved by gracethe lyrics. “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” —Ephesians 2:8-9

Yesterdays Proverb was: “Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.” —Proverbs 16:18, King James Version (KJV)

Yesterdays Hymn was: Revive Us Again, there it was again, Revival! —Psalm 85:4-7

So Psalms make for good Devotionals, right? So Off to Mandy’s June 2021 Prayer published on Blue Collar Theologian but first, Psalm 86:8-13 KJV, YouVersionPsalm 86 Explained; by Discover the Books of The Bible.

That would of been a good place to end, but no I went to Jesus in Every Book of the Bible that Bruce Cooper published on Reasoned Cases for Christ.

Again, a good place to end but now I gonna take up Revival, Right? “He must increase, but I must decrease.” —John 3:30, King James Version (KJV)

“Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all.” —1 Chronicles 29:11, King James Version (KJV)

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.” —1 Peter 5:8-9, King James Version (KJV)

“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” —James 4:7, King James Version (KJV)

“Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.” —1 John 4:4, King James Version (KJV)

There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” —Romans 8:1, King James Version (KJV)

“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” —Philippians 4:13, King James Version (KJV)

“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” —Psalms 119:105, King James Version (KJV)Psalm 119 (verses 105-120)

“Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.” —Psalms 119:11 , King James Version (KJV)Psalm 119 (verses 1-16)

“Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.” Psalms 51:10 King James Version (KJV)Psalm 51:10-19HymnaryGotQuestionsCreate In Me A Clean Heart by Keith GreenLast Days Ministries

I left some of it out, not on purpose, just forgot, but you get the point. If I could have done this on the front end might have been a good Devotional. Seems it took hindsight, it’s 2020 ya know.

I’m still challenged in finding time to work on the Bible Student Hub. I have been a bit obsessed with the park of late. I’m a Volunteer, Public Servant, if you will. Although the Bible Study Start Page is up and running and is our main focus, there is so much more to be done. It was good to make a few posts last week but wasn’t able to produce a quality post.

Today I want to feature Love Worth Finding and Adrian Rogers. We have covered the Daily Heartbeat you can sign up to receive via email but there is also a daily devotional and Audio/Video Messages. I have been listening via King of Kings but BBN also airs the program.

Yesterday they started airing the Factors of Faithfulness Series, Faithful in Bible Study was the first of seven. Note: on the radio it was part one with part 2 airing today. I did not listen to file from the web but looks like it is the full sermon from with the two part radio program was taken.

On the daily devotional page I find Are You a Faithful Student? for yesterday and Faithfully Studying God’s Word for today. Looked at it last night and seemed, to me, to be a transcript of of what I had just listened to.

From Are You a Faithful Student?: “If we want to live holy lives, to be sanctified and powerful in the Lord, we must learn how to be faithful in studying God’s Word. Today and tomorrow we will look at four ways to do just that.” —Adrian Rogers

“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” —2 Timothy 2:15, King James Version (KJV)

Well, that’s all I can share, at this time and place but you have the links above and can see how they apply to what we are all about as Bible student’s and Christ followers.

“In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” —1 Thessalonians 5:18 (KJV) The Treasury of Scripture KnowledgeCommentaries

Life is good. God has given me the Grace to be able to fulfill my obligations here. I have my challenges but anything lacking is on my part not God’s. God is Good and always God is good. He provides all that is necessary for life and service. So then any, persevered, shortcoming is a mater of misalignment of wills or misunderstanding on my part.

National Day of Prayer (USA): Proclamation2021 Theme2 Corinthians 3:17

Note: The people of India have an urgent need for help. Pray for them and if you can, Here’s how you can help.


“Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” —James 5:16
King James Version (KJV) –emailed dally from Harper Collins.

I Confess that I have a tendency toward laziness, procrastination and I’m not the prayer warrior I should be. So I pray for a clean heart and sound mind; that all that I say and do brings glory to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ; for wisdom, knowledge courage and strength; greater faith and dedication; for His will to be done in and through me. I trust whole in my God and know that He will provide all that is necessary for life and service!


Today with Allen Jackson: Acts 9:15-16 (NIV®)
But the Lord said to Ananias, “Go! This man is my chosen instrument to proclaim my name to the Gentiles and their kings and to the people of Israel. I will show him how much he must suffer for my name.” –We need to understand that we too will suffer for the name of Jesus. We may not be physically attacked and imprisoned as Paul was. But we may very well face mockery, lost business opportunities, and strained friendships. This is a part of the high calling of serving our Lord, and it should not surprise us or discourage us. –Allen –Subscribe with link above —Archive

Today’s Hymn: HOW GREAT THOU ARTAmy Grant


From the Mail Bag. . .

At Dallas Theological Seminary, we are equipping leaders to share the gospel of Christ and train new disciples. But you don’t have to be a seminary student or a pastor to share the gospel.

In fact, all Christians are called to share our faith as often as we can. That’s why DTS is launching a new free online course on Evangelism. This course will introduce the terms related to evangelism and help you become more confident in sharing the gospel message with others. 

Taught by DTS professor of Pastoral Ministries Dr. Barry Jones, this free online course will give you a high-level look at evangelism. The course covers the biblical imperative to share the gospel and how Jesus taught His own disciples to talk about Him. The course also provides a practical method of sharing your faith that takes less than one class period to memorize. Dr. Jones and a guest speaker discuss the fear that keeps some of us from being bold with sharing the gospel and give you practical advice on how you can overcome that fear.

I’m excited to share this course with you. I hope it encourages you to share the gospel with someone who needs to hear it.

Update

Yes I’m still alive, the WordPress Account Bible Student is still Active and so is the domain Bible Student Hub. I have not been able to post or read posts for a few weeks. I have been absent from the internet, for the most part. The primary issues are health and transitioning to new/changing realities. While there is cause for concern, I’m progressing through the dysfunction.

A period of hyper intensity Physically, Mentally and Spiritually seems to have been the cause of the crash. Coming out of a crash the first concern is Spirituality. I have personal/offline Bible study, reading and classes. Then there are chores, responsibilities, obligations and Church life.

As I’m able to come back online I’ve been mostly consumed with those personal studies. May first begins the recreational season. Responsibilities in the park will be at the forefront of daily obligations but I will be able to continue the juggling of Church, Ministry, service, responsibilities and obligations.

I have been doing some work, behind the scenes, mostly thinking, planning and research. The domain Bible Student Hub is a work in progress and changes as is necessary. Our main focus is the Bible Study Start Page then the static pages and lastly this blog.

The formatting of the Bible Study Start Page changed last week and more resources have been added. We are moving toward listing by tools (Dictionary, Concordance, Lexicons, etc.) rater than listing by site (Bible Hub, Bible Study Tools, Study Light, etc.) to this point we have culled them out and listed them under the site. We list original sources first when available (Websters Dictionary 1828, Etymology Dictionary, etc.) Among the newly added sites are Textus Receptus and The Kings Bible. Also new are direct links to online Bibles (ESV, CSB and NLT).

New to my personal study Bible (PocketBible by Laridian) Daily Bible, Commentary and Hymns from the One Year Bible series. I believe most of these are available online and the original material in Public Domain so sharable. When I do a daily post I try to bring together History, Bible, Commentary and Hymns.

I finished reading Major Bible Themes by Lewis Sperry Chafer and John Walvoord. Now reading Systematic Theology by Augustus Hopkins Strong via Logos. Note: this is in Public Domain and is available free for E‑SWORD, find it here, or on Bible Study Tools (the link above).

Augustus Hopkins Strong comes before Lewis Sperry Chafer in the history of Theological development. I don’t have access to Systematic Theology by Lewis Sperry Chafer at this time but is on my Logos Wish List. It will take some time to work through Strong’s, Hope to have Chafer’s by then.

HE IS RISEN

Behold, there was a great earthquake, for an angel of the Lord descended from the sky and came and rolled away the stone from the door and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow. For fear of him, the guards shook, and became like dead men. 

Now after the Sabbath, as it began to dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to see the tomb. 

They found the stone rolled away from the tomb. They entered in, and didn’t find the Lord Jesus’ body. While they were greatly perplexed about this, behold, two men stood by them in dazzling clothing. Becoming terrified, they bowed their faces down to the earth.

They said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead? He isn’t here, but is risen. Remember what he told you when he was still in Galilee, saying that the Son of Man must be delivered up into the hands of sinful men and be crucified, and the third day rise again?”

They remembered his words, 

Therefore she ran and came to Simon Peter and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and said to them, “They have taken away the Lord out of the tomb, and we don’t know where they have laid him!”

Therefore Peter and the other disciple went out, and they went toward the tomb. They both ran together. The other disciple outran Peter, and came to the tomb first. Stooping and looking in, he saw the linen cloths lying, yet he didn’t enter in. Then Simon Peter came, following him, and entered into the tomb. He saw the linen cloths lying, and the cloth that had been on his head, not lying with the linen cloths, but rolled up in a place by itself. So then the other disciple who came first to the tomb also entered in, and he saw and believed. For as yet they didn’t know the Scripture, that he must rise from the dead. So the disciples went away again to their own homes.

But Mary was standing outside at the tomb weeping. So as she wept, she stooped and looked into the tomb, and she saw two angels in white sitting, one at the head, and one at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain. They asked her, “Woman, why are you weeping?”

She said to them, “Because they have taken away my Lord, and I don’t know where they have laid him.” When she had said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing, and didn’t know that it was Jesus.

Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping? Who are you looking for?”

She, supposing him to be the gardener, said to him, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away.”

Jesus said to her, “Mary.”

She turned and said to him, “Rabboni!” which is to say, “Teacher!”Jesus said to her, “Don’t hold me, for I haven’t yet ascended to my Father; but go to my brothers and tell them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’” —Harmony Bible (WEB)

Today in Christian History: April 2It Happened today

This Day in History


Question: “What is Good Friday / Holy Friday?

Answer:
Good Friday, also known as “Holy Friday,” is the Friday immediately preceding Easter Sunday. It is celebrated traditionally as the day on which Jesus was crucified. If you are interested in a study of the issue, please see our article that discusses the various views on which day Jesus was crucified. Assuming that Jesus was crucified and died on a Friday, should Christians remember Jesus’ death by celebrating Good Friday?

What is important is that He did die and that He physically, bodily rose from the dead. What is equally important is the reason He died—to take the punishment that all sinners deserve. John 3:16 and 3:36 both proclaim that putting your trust in Him results in eternal life! This is equally true whether He was crucified on a Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday. —Got Questions

Sound Doctrine

To continue from yesterday, lets revisit Dr Chafer’s words…

Bible doctrines are the bones of revelation and the attentive Bible student must be impressed with the New Testament emphasis on “sound doctrine” (Mt 7:28; Jn 7:16,17; Ac 2:42; Ro 6:17; Ep 4:14; 1Ti 1:3; 4:6,16; 6:1; 2Ti 3:10,16; 4:2-3; 2Jn 9-10). Not knowing the doctrines of the Bible, the child of God will be, even when sincere, “tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive”; the many well-meaning believers who are drawn into modern cults and heresies being sufficient proof. On the other hand, the divine purpose is that the servant of Christ shall be fully equipped to “preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.” —Lewis Sperry Chafer (Author’s Introduction, Major Bible Themes)


“And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.” —Matthew 7:28, Bible Hub —Matthew 5:1-7:29, Biblia

“Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me. If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.” —John 7:16, Bible Hub —John 7:14-44, Biblia

Beloved,

Here at the Bible Student Hub we first and foremost point to free Bible Study resources available to all on the World Wide Web, see the Bible Study Start Page. Dallas Theological Seminary (DTS) has many Free Resources so we do give space to DTS. PocketBible by Laridian Bible Software is my go-to personal Study Bible. It is Free, with the barest of resources. It is pretty easy to expand and is affordable over time with promotions. I have Logos Bible Software as well and use it for class work. It to is Free, with the barest of resources.


Craig Rairdin, Laridian Bible Software just released the Lewis Sperry Chafer Collection. Lewis Sperry Chafer was the Founder of Dallas Theological Seminary (DTS)

Introducing the Lewis Sperry Chafer Collection for PocketBible — 9 volumes, regularly $49.99, intro price $19.99.

A collection of 9 volumes from Lewis Sperry Chafer, including his very significant Major Bible Themes — an exploration of the major doctrines of the Bible that would become the foundation of his later Systematic Theology. Extensively cross-referenced, Chafer attempted to allow Scripture speak for itself. He frequently reminds the reader to read the Scriptures he references rather than blindly trust him to interpret and apply those Scriptures on the reader’s behalf.


Lewis Sperry Chafer (1871-1952) was an American theologian. He founded and served as the first president of Dallas Theological Seminary, and was an influential proponent of Dispensationalism in the early 20th century.

He was born in Rock Creek, Ohio. While growing up he developed a talent for music and choir.

From 1889 to 1891, Chafer attended Oberlin College. Chafer quit his studies at Oberlin to work with YMCA evangelist, Arthur T. Reed of Ohio. He and his wife formed a traveling evangelistic music ministry, he singing or preaching and she playing the organ.

Chafer was ordained in 1900 by a Council of Congregational Ministers. In 1903 he ministered as an evangelist in Massachusetts and became associated with the ministry of Cyrus Scofield, who became his mentor.

During this early period, Chafer began writing and developing his theology. He taught Bible classes and music at the Mount Hermon School for Boys from 1906 to 1910. He aided Scofield in establishing the Philadelphia School of the Bible in 1913. From 1923 to 1925, he served as general secretary of the Central American Mission.

When Scofield died in 1921, Chafer moved to Dallas, Texas to pastor the First Congregational Church of Dallas where Scofield had ministered. Then, in 1924, Chafer and his friend William Henry Griffith Thomas realized their vision of a simple, Bible-teaching theological seminary and founded Dallas Theological Seminary (originally Evangelical Theological College). Chafer served as president of the seminary and professor of Systematic Theology from 1924 until his death in 1952.

During his life, Chafer received three honorary doctorates: Doctor of Divinity from Wheaton in 1926, Doctor of Letters from Dallas in 1942, and Doctor of Theology from the Aix-en-Province, France, Protestant Seminary in 1946.

Chafer had a tremendous influence on the evangelical movement. Among his students were Kenneth N. Taylor, Howard Hendricks, J. Dwight Pentecost, Charles Caldwell Ryrie, J. Vernon McGee, and John Walvoord (who succeeded him as president of DTS).

Chafer is widely recognized as one of the founders of modern Dispensationalism. While he opposed to covenant theology, he did not reject the idea of a covenant of redemption, covenant of works, and covenant of grace. He affirmed all three along with the Edenic, Adamic, Noahic, Abrahamic, Mosaic, Palestinian, Davidic, and New Covenant. He was a premillennial, pretribulational dispensationalist. His overall theology could be generally described as based on the inductive study of the entire Bible, having similarities to John Nelson Darby of the Plymouth Brethren, moderate Calvinism (rejected limited atonement), a mild form of Keswick Theology on Sanctification, and Presbyterianism, all of these tempered with a focus on spirituality based on simple Bible study and living.


I purchased this collection, witch doesn’t contain Systematic Theology, and began reading Major Bible Themes. Note: The books in this collection are in Public Domain and can be found Here for free. The PocketBible version fits in my personal Study Bible. Systematic Theology is not in Public Domain or available for PocketBible but is available for Logos Bible Software.


I wanted to share this from the Author’s Introduction…

Although the writer presumably has made a careful study of the various Subjects treated, it is not his prerogative to dictate what another shall believe; but rather to point out what the Bible teaches. Faith should always rest on a personal understanding of the Scriptures, rather than on the teaching of men.

Bible doctrines are the bones of revelation and the attentive Bible student must be impressed with the New Testament emphasis on “sound doctrine” (Mt 7:28; Jn 7:16,17; Ac 2:42; Ro 6:17; Ep 4:14; 1Ti 1:3; 4:6,16; 6:1; 2Ti 3:10,16; 4:2-3; 2Jn 9-10). Not knowing the doctrines of the Bible, the child of God will be, even when sincere, “tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive”; the many well-meaning believers who are drawn into modern cults and heresies being sufficient proof. On the other hand, the divine purpose is that the servant of Christ shall be fully equipped to “preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.”

These chapters are released with the prayer that they may honor Him whose glory and grace are supreme, and that some among the children of God may be helped more accurately “to speak the things which become sound doctrine.” –Lewis Sperry Chafer


Dr. Chafer said, better than I, how I feel about Bible Doctrine and my intentions herein so I was compelled to share his words with you resulting in this post.

Blessings,

Dave the Bible student
