Encountering God in His Living Word
How to Study the Word of God & Listen to the God of the Word
(eBook; 55 pages)
This powerful eBook will challenge you today to begin to change in your ability to interact with the very personal Holy Spirit through the Word of God.
By reading and putting into practice the simple yet profound truths in this eBook, you will begin developing a new discipline of balance as you approach the Word of God:
an approach of balance between
(1) study of the “established” Word; (you can thus live out your daily lifestyle according to its truth, its doctrine, and its general revelations of God to man), and
(2) exercising your faith and expectancy for
ENCOUNTERING GOD IN HIS LIVING WORD
God Himself, by the Holy Spirit, to speak directly to you in the “living” Word; (you can thus live out your daily lifestyle according to its personal truth, its doctrine, and its specific revelations of God to man in guidance)!
Truth is still truth. The Word does not change, but the way in which you act, react and interact with the Word needs to change! This is just part of growth: growing more into the likeness of Christ and learning better how to be led by the Holy Spirit and hear His personal “marching orders” for your own life, by His Word.
Both the book of Acts and the history of the Christian Church reveal multiple ways and means of God having contact with men and women.
Learning how to hear from Him in His Word is one of the easiest and most rewarding of these multiple ways He chooses to make contact with us.
It truly is an adventure to build faith!

“I am so blessed to see a balanced, Biblical approach to this topic. In a world of extremes, when people feel the need to be more and more outrageous in order to be heard, it’s reassuring to hear that Gods word is available to us as fresh revelation without going off on a tangent!
I believe this will minister to people across the spectrum of Christian traditions and positions.
I just read through it and can already think of a few people to whom I would love to send this!”
