Understanding the “us” word and the Church

church I feel this is a pretty important topic because lots of people lump “everyone” into the “us” word when they read the scripture. We must understand who “us” is referring to when we read the scriptures. This definitely goes along with my last post “Who are the sons of God” because when it refers to “us” we should understand who “us” is.

This article will go over a few of the “us” scriptures and lay out the context so we know what exactly the scripture is talking about. We will also cover some verses which helps us understand why it is important we need understand the words we read and why we should study to shew “ourselves” approved unto God.

Ok, enough with the “quotes”.

First up!

We love him, because he first loved us.

– 1 John 4:19

Bible Study: Who are the sons of God?

sons of GodThe title of posts are just straight up give-aways aren’t they? If you haven’t figured it out already, this is a Bible Study about the “sons of God” and who they are. It’s just kind of hard to get a good search engine result with a clever title like “Going to church with the sons of God”. Lets make that the unofficial title! :)

Some Backstory:
When I first came to know the truth, this was one of my first questions of which I was blown away by the answer. It was one of those WOW (Wide Open Word) moments.

Let’s start off with the root of the question. Who was specifically labeled a “son” of God in the scripture? We have:

Bible Study: Bad Behaviors

In this post, I want to talk about behaviors. However, I don’t really know how to start it off.

I think the main thing here is to understand what a bad behavior is and how it is removed.

How about we start with a scripture? That’s always a good start. These will help explain bad behaviors and what they are.

Shutting and Opening the Doors

Today I am going to talk about how God takes care of his people. There are several instances in the bible which show this and I will cover the ones which best relate to this story.

On Tuesday, January 24, 2012 I was no longer employed at the place I had been working.

They explained to me, saying it had something to do with my skill-set.

Revamp of this Blog and Podcast

I have been doing a lot of thinking and praying. I have come to the conclusion this website needs some revamping. In the coming weeks you can expect to see a few changes.

Things You Can Expect:

Weekly or Bi-Weekly Podcast
I haven’t decided if it will be weekly or every two weeks yet. Mainly because it’s tough to find time to get to this when there is usually someone awake and making noise. Those poses difficulty to create a clear quality podcast.

Weekly Blog Post
At least one a week kind of thing.

Grab Bag Revamp
Rather than once a week, make it once a month and maybe some other things.

More “teachings” of the word
Explanations. I will still incorporate the scriptural point blank answer but do some better explaining.

More Edification Posts
These posts will be for the building up of the person who is reading it. To edify.

Revamp the Header
I have been trying to think of a good idea for the header. I am tossing around some ideas. Anyways, colors and the layout may change a little as well.

This is what I plan to do. I have been out of this for a while because I have had my hands full with my daughter being born last October. The good thing is, she is finally getting on a schedule.

The Good News

Some neat information I think you may be interested in is, I have recently discovered this blog is ranked number one in Bing and Yahoo for the keyword “Apostolic Questions Answered” and also “Apostolic Questions and Answers”. It is also ranked number six and ten in Google respectively.

I shouldn’t really say this is good news, because it’s great news! I couldn’t believe it! Because of it I have been getting several questions. Thank God and I am so glad to be able to help some people find answers.

What else would you be interested in seeing revamped?
