Hello all, and fellow ‘Fielders! After some time of reflecting, and with the Holy Spirit leading me here, I’ve decided to start a 40 Minute weekly Bible Study meeting, each Monday from---> 6:00-6:40pm EST, 5:00 - 5:40pm CST, 3:00-3:40pm PST, using the FREE ZOOM feature! Should the turnout grow, needing more time, I will be happy to then purchase more time from Zoom in the future!

< Weekly Bible Study (WBS) Purpose >

I am No Pastor, No Preacher, Nobody special, just a normal guy, now a Disciple of Christ, a Believer, who got baptized in 2018, after I Retired, just to check off something from my bucket list! I ‘Only’ wanted to get Baptized………, didn’t know I was gonna Spiritually Change INSIDE!!! Before this transformation, I’d NEVER planned on going to Church Every week……I NEVER planned on going to Weekly Bible Study every week…..I NEVER planned on doing Weekly Volunteer work every week……I NEVER planned on reading Scriptures during the week……Etc…Heck, All I wanted to do, was get Baptized, to make it to Heaven, kinda ‘thinking’ from growing up, and since I hadn’t been Baptized before, I wouldn’t make it there!! Over time, with more Knowledge from God, and after a few months, I was a changed man, and learned, it was Much More, than just getting Baptized to make it to Heaven… I Never had any understanding of the Trinity and the Power of the Holy Spirit …...I NEVER had a relationship with God before…..NEVER knew Him….Never knew so many things about the Bible….. egs: NEVER Knew what the RAPTURE was……NEVER heard what the TRIBULATION PERIOD was…….NEVER knew the differences between the OLD or NEW Testaments…….Etc….ETc…..Etc………Shoot, I was kinda ashamed to tell anyone I just didn’t know these things…….Yea, I heard of Him, Knew of Him….Knew of Jesus…..believed in God……kinda thought, I was a good person and I’d get to Heaven……But, what I learned along the way, in my conversion, I was dead wrong…….It’s a PROCESS to change, for one to be, Born Again (JOHN 3:3, 3:5-8) and for some, like me, it doesn’t magically happen overnight!! But 1st, one needs to WANT to get Baptized, or Re-Baptized, and it starts from there. For those that are already Saved, those Believers, We all need to bring others to the Lord.

I have been on my Journey with the Lord now since 4/2018, and it will continue until I meet with Him, as we all will one day. And now, I want to share some of my journey, and bring others along, using this Zoom Platform, as a vehicle, to bring others to Christ! As a Disciple of Christ, We need to share the Gospel to everyone, especially those who aren’t SAVED, to Help Convert them, give them Confidence for their Heavenly Place with the Lord, with no more worries, while still on Earth, to what Horror will become in the Ending Times. With God and the Holy Spirit dwelling in one’s body, they will find Peace and Rest, no matter what difficulties they face, as true Believers know and ‘feel’ this, deep inside. In the future for Yours and my Family Descendants during the Revelation depicted Tribulation Period, People with No Knowledge of the Bible, and who just aren’t Informed, along with their Descendants, will face DIFFICULT Times, and will be fooled, by the Anti-Christ, and the False Prophet. I hope to encourage people here on this Platform of (WBS) Studies to Know and Study the Word to then be Prepared for these coming Events and to Receive Christ’s Holy Spirit Invitation to Salvation for Eternal Life with the Father.

I myself, am still learning and reading about the Bible, and my growth and relationship with God will continue until I meet Him in Person. I have NOT read all the books of the Bible as of yet. I am using the JOHN MACARTHUR and J. VERNON McGee Bible Workbooks, along with Bible Apps, Bible, in learning all about the Bible, along with my weekly Bible Study Group(where we go back and forth from the Old or New Testament), and of course, attending Church. I will begin this New Weekly study, in the format I’ve been accustomed to, and ad-libbing somewhat, in sharing what I have been learning these last 4 years, on my own personal growth, which will 'Drive' these Studies. These Bible Studies will cover the Old Testament to the New Testament, in Chronological Order. I hope to be doing this for a long time, God willing of course, as these courses take time, but as long as we can get some (NEW BELIEVERS) along the way, or just to keep one's Holy Spirit Renewed within themselves, we Disciples need to keep this going! I Look Forward to seeing anyone joining and learning and spreading the word of God!
