“Can you ‘Understand?’–101”… Blog.
“Can you ‘Understand?’–101”… Blog.
Because our world… is fast becoming a ‘Global Village’; we find it necessary to communicate with “Others”… who may ‘not’ share our “Native Tongue” [Language]. For some time… I have been learning other languages, Spanish in particular. One summer, some time ago; I spent ‘time’ listening to a Russian language course and ‘cannot’ even now… remember 5 words! Often times, because I am a Born Again Christian… I want to share God’s Holy Word… with others. The language barrier has been broken down with Translation Software and Internet Translation links. Basic communication can be opened by typing in your English and then selecting the Target Language.
These are just a few… there are many more. Many times in other countries… they are learning ‘English’ and want to practice on someone. I welcome this challenge and try and help them, if their ‘English’ is not understandable. How about you… have you stepped out of your… ‘Comfort Zone’ and tried to Communicate with someone in another… ‘Language & Country?’ When sharing the Bible verses… I often use this ‘Free’ Bible Software. It can be downloaded to your home computer or your laptop. You do not have to be on the internet to use one of those Bible links.
It has the Bible… in the Original OT Hebrew and the NT Greek. There are also many Asian, Middle Eastern and European Translations of the Bible. There are maps, commentaries and other tools… to help One… Grow in God’s Grace and in the Knowledge of His Holy Word! My favorite tool is the Word Search. At the top of the page is a pair of binoculars. Click on that it has a drop down menu. Simply type in the Word… and it will show you… where it is found in the OT, NT or Both! The term… “It came to Pass”… is found “452-times”… in the Bible.
“How do I know that the Bible”…? – 101 Blog.
*** (2Timothy 2:15) Study earnestly to present yourself approved to God, a workman that does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth.
*** (2Timothy 4:1-to-5) Therefore I solemnly witness before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who is going to judge the living and the dead according to His appearance and His kingdom,
(2Tim 4:2) preach the Word, be instant in season and out of season, reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long-suffering and doctrine.
(2Tim 4:3) For a time will be when they will not endure sound doctrine, but they will heap up teachers to themselves according to their own lusts, tickling the ear.
(2Tim 4:4) And they will turn away their ears from the truth and will be turned to myths.
(2Tim 4:5) But you watch in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fully carry out your ministry.
How serious are ‘You’… about sharing your “Faith In Christ”… with Others? Do you know what the Great Commission is..? Do you even know what Christ Jesus told all of us… who are Truly His Children…? How about You? Can you share your Faith… with others of your same language group? This is all part of the Christian Maturation process called… “Growing in Grace!”
*** (2Peter 3:18) But grow in grace and in knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.
*** (Luke 24:44-to-48) Then He [Jesus] said to them, "These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still with you = that everything written about me in the law of Moses, the Prophets, and the Psalms had to be fulfilled."
(Luke 24:45) Then He opened their minds so that they might come to understand the Scriptures.
(Luke 24:46) He said to them, "Thus it is written, that the Christ was to suffer and to rise from the dead on the third day,
(Luke 24:47) and that repentance and forgiveness of sins is to be proclaimed in His name to all the nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
(Luke 24:48) You are witnesses of these things.
*** “Give a man a fish… and You feed him for a day…! Teach a man… how to fish… and You feed him… for Life...!”
Ok, so will You… try it…? I promise you… it will “Not Hurt!” …LOL! Take some time and learn another language. Dedicate yourself to the Task… and then learn as you go. Remember most of what you will learn, will or may… be new to you! Become comfortable with learning from your mistakes. In all honesty… it is better for you, than that TV! …LOL!
*** (Luke 24:48) And you are witnesses of these things.

*** (John 1:49-50-51) Nathanael answered and said to Him, Rabbi, You are the Son of God. You are the King of Israel!
(John 1:50) Jesus answered and said to him, Because I said to you, I saw you under the fig tree, do you believe? You shall see greater things than these.
(John 1:51) And He said to him, Truly, truly, I say to you, Hereafter you shall see Heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man.
Thanks, In Christ, Roger / Jeremiah 33:3.
