This email request came to me recently: “The newer translations of the Bible have missing words, missing whole verses. We are just wanting to be sure which are the most correct versions of the Bible? At first, righteous anger rose up, knowing no one is supposed to add or subtract anything from the Holy Bible. (How dare they?) We’ve seen the arguments on both sides. We realize it’s something the enemy uses to keep people arguing and doubting the authority of Scripture. We’re not interested in division, only truth.” - Megan
Whether you are single, engaged, a newlywed, or celebrating your 65th+ anniversary, this course offers insight into God’s purpose for marriage. We are entering into a season known as the Kingdom Age where we are to pray down the Lord’s Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven. It is important to know God’s purpose for marriage and how to live within His covering as man and wife. Another important concept is to understand more fully the meaning of God’s grace and its role in our marriage.
We are living in a time when domination, control, fear, deception, and emotions are running high. Our desire is NOT to be deceived, whether by fear tactics, control freaks or by workers of miracles who are not followers of Jesus Christ. We are truly in a war so we need to also be wise as serpents or our voice will be removed from the public forum, as only the party platform is allowed there, and those who disagree with the "party line" vanish.
Lord, what do You want to speak to the Church today?
I have called you to be a nation of leaders, not a nation of followers. You are to LEAD and NOT to follow (Deut. 28:1-14). You are to initiate and not react. You are to hear My voice, discern My purposes, receive YOUR assignment along with My anointing to carry out that assignment and say, “Yes, Lord” to what I commission you to do (Jn. 5:19,20,30).

I devoured Neil Miller’s book, What If Listening to God Was Easy? The theme of this book has been my heart's passion for 40 years, and it is enjoyable, fun, and easy to read as it is filled with stories, just as Jesus’ teaching was.
Question from Missy - "I am hoping you can guide me on the most accurate Bible to meditate on. I have the ESV, NIV, KJV, and Amplified. I keep getting conflicting information. I hear verses are taken out of some or changed. The internet search I did was overwhelming. Thank you for your time and help."
Perhaps my answer to Missy will be helpful to you as well.
When I began pastoring in the late 1970’s, we created small groups which met weekly for sharing, Bible study, prayer for personal needs, and fellowship. Everyone completed the assigned study during the week, and came to the meetings prepared to share what God had revealed to them during their meditation upon Scripture. We worked our way “Through the Bible” with a 2-year program. Years later, people have commented that this was the place they received their grounding in Scripture.
The Lord has given me a specific spiritual project to complete during my weeks of quarantine. I am loving it and working diligently with His anointing to accomplish it. It is to re-write our book Prayers That Heal the Heart so it is much more user friendly.
Years ago Derek Prince introduced me to the concept of 20/20 vision. His revelation came from Acts 20:20 which speaks of meeting “publicly and house to house.” Derek’s point was you need BOTH kinds of meetings if you want to experience maximum Christian growth. The public gathering ought to provide more mature fivefold ministry, and the home group more intimate care, sharing and personal ministry. I believe that with the technological advancements available today, the home group category can include internet groups, as these provide interactive live streaming video and audio allowing us to see and hear one another share. Group members can give and receive personal prayer ministry, prophetic ministry, healing and deliverance in these internet groups.
