A thing that fascinates me about God is his perfect wisdom. He knows everything. That’s quite
a statement, because it is literal. He knows every detail about everything that has ever been, he is omniscient. From the intricate details of how he put the universe together, to the thoughts, feelings and deeds of every single person who has ever existed, to exactly how the future of the world will play out. There is nothing he does not know. Existing outside of the time dimension he created for us to live in and know him, the deep past, the present and the distant future are equally familiar to him. Listen to just some of the declarations about this from the Old Testament of the Bible: “To God belong wisdom and power, counsel and understanding are his.” Job 12:13“’For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,’ declares the Lord. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:8-9 ........More

Psalm 22 and the Crucified Messiah
Son of David: King David, who wrote Psalm 22 under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, predicted that the Messiah - who would be his descendant - would suffer, be rejected and killed.

The website has a lot of resources that are available to parents across the world with the aid of the internet. The site is clear and easy to use. A top resource.
Into Thy Word is a comprehensive site for studying the word. It has it origins in the Francis Schaeffer ministries. A man with profound understanding of the word of God. It provides not only study guides but study methods and Bible reading plans. There is something for everyone. The resources are suitable for new Christians through to the most mature Christians. The web site is easy to use with easy to follow titles. It also has a book store where Francis Schaeffer books are available.

Bible Gateway is one of the most comprehensive site dealing with the various aspects of a Bible site. Not only can you find a comprehensive range of Bibles you can find them in many languages. You can look up a verse or track the subject down by topic. You can find study subjects. The site is easy to to navigate. It does not provide a method to navigate by mouse only but with a small amount of typing you can get where you want to go. It has an excellent app for your phone and I use it all the time to lesson to the bible.One of the best sites around.
What a great resource Bible History is. There is a tremendous range of subject matter. Support for the Bible student and interesting reading for the browser. As a person who's profession is Sports Turf Management it may seem a little dry. However the person who spent three years studying sport turf management can lose many hours browsing the information provided. I can recommend this site to all how study the word of God.
Irvin Baxter and End Time Ministries have been around for a long time. Of the End Time sites he is the most accurate. He gets eighty percent the same answers as my own end time site. We only differ in that they think that the beasts of Rev 13 and 17 are the same beast and I think they are two separate Beasts. They go with the Catholic Church being the woman and I go with the USA. Although strictly speaking the USA in the seventh head. Also the rapture. You can not go to far from what is about to happen on this site. Highly recommended.
