My Favorite Christian Resources

This is a great post by Christina Rosa, clarity chaser, which lists some great online resources for studying the Word of God. Enjoy her post and have fun checking out her suggestions.

Chasing Clarity

Hey y’all! I know how confusing it can be to navigate faith sometimes; I’ve been there and there’s no doubt that I’ll be back there again. Life is gonna life. Of course, God is my ultimate recommendation for a resource, buuuut, what if you don’t even know how to reach God? What if you know how to reach Him, but you feel kinda lost anyway? What if you need help praying or reading the Bible? What if you just need some encouragement real quick?

Never fear.

Here are some of my favorite resources for the person at any level in their journey into or through faith.

THE(PHYSICAL)BIBLE

Why: Surprise! My 1st resource is the physical Bible itself. At its core, the Bible is about God and His plan for salvation through Jesus. Reading the Bible is the most direct way I’ve been able to get to know, love, and understand…

Bible Hub: Everything You Need to Study the Bible – #Free

bh2From the beginnings of this project I have needed multiple translations, commentaries, Hebrew wording and as many reference resources as I could get my hands on… it can get expensive… However, even amongst the reference materials I have purchased, many have not been as helpful as Bible Hub.

They have multi-lingual Bibles, reading plans, devotions, encyclopaedias and dictionaries… everything you could want and they don’t ask for payment. They don’t even have a donation box, which I would have used, as I am heavily dependent on the site.

Raid it, bookmark it and pray for a blessing on the people who are kind enough to run it!
“Bible Hub Online Parallel Bible, search and study tools including parallel texts, cross references, Treasury of Scripture, and commentaries. This site provides quick access to topical studies, interlinears, sermons, Strong’s and many more resources.

Our mission is best summarised as follows:
1) Increase the visibility and accessibility of the Scriptures online.
2) Provide free access to Bible study tools in many languages.
3) Promote the Gospel of Christ through the learning, study and application of God’s word.

This site is a great way to link any verse on your site to an instant menu of 25 versions!”

Study Light.org : One Stop Bible Study and Encouragement Web Site

slorglogoEven though I usually visit Bible Hub to access Scriptures quickly, I still keep an eye out for other sites which have great online Bible resources. Study Light recently grabbed my attention for the amazing range of resources they have on offer.

Study Light has more than a range of Bibles and commentaries, they have:

  • Bible reading plans and progress charts
  • Devotionals from popular authors such as Charles Spurgeon, Selwyn Huges, A.W. Tozer and Oswald Chambers
  • Bible Maps
  • Historical Resources from many points in history including BC (including Edersheim and Josephus – by the way, I refuse to compromise by using BCE, sorry, not sorry); A.D. including the Early Church Fathers, Foxe’s Book or Martyrs and more; plus many books on church history, including the history of various denominations.
  • There are pastoral resources ranging from quotes and illustrations to use in church bulletins, to sermon illustrations.
  • Original language tools in Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic.
  • News from the Christian post.
  • Audio teachings.
  • Articles and daily reflections on the Word.
  • Lots of commentaries, concordances, dictionaries and encyclopaedias… plus the odd Bible or two, actually, a giant drop-down list of them!
  • And you can even choose which colour you want the site to appear in.
  • Plus a cartoon!

Needless to say, I bookmarked it pretty fast.

Please, go and help yourself, then pass the word on.

Bible Charts.org: A Brilliant Resource for Study

donniebarnesphotoI came across this web site when I was looking for a simple, easy to understand chart, outlining the Hebrew sacrificial system. I then cheerfully spent the next hour raiding it for all the goodies! This generous legacy site is highly recommended and put together by Donnie S.Barnes, a Pastor who has a Doctorate in Theology (and is now home with the Lord.)

http://www.biblecharts.org/index.html

“BIBLECHARTS.ORG is a [copyright free ]  web site containing Bible Charts for preaching and teaching, church bulletin charts, sermons, Bible Study materials, and a variety of Church-related materials designed for God’s glory and for the teaching of truth. Surveys of Bible Books, Bible History, Bible Chronology as well materials regarding the life and work of the apostle Paul are presented in great volume.

These bible charts cover numerous subjects including, the Bible, God, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, the Old Testament, the New Testament, the Church, the Godhead, the Cross of Christ, Personal Work, Spiritual Growth, and Marriage and the Christian Home. Notes about places in the Bible Lands are included as well.”

How to Make and Use an Effective #Prayer Journal

youtubeoldtv

I came across this video and it was such a blessing and so practical, it had to be shared. It won’t suit everyone, but when it comes to a great way to remember all the important parts of prayer that you forget, it’s pure gold. I hope it helps you, too.

Need to Study the Bible In-Depth, Free and At Your Own Pace?

bt_logo_2016

This site has been the most massive blessing to me. Better still, I have signed up and have not been inundated with any emails wanting money, promotion or anything… It’s FREE and worth bookmarking, even if you’re not currently in a study frame of mind.

Biblicaltraining.org exists for individuals or churches, who need to study the Word, theology, or ministry. It has audio and video lectures from extensively experienced, reputable Seminary teachers and covers as many topics as any Bible college. And it’s free.

Yes, it’s free. I have downloaded masses of audio files, watched a heap of videos and downloaded workbooks and class transcripts and they have not asked for money. The only instance I have found of money being needed, is if you are a church who wants to put together a specialised course of study for your congregation, then you pay $99 for a personalised landing page. They do ask for Paypal donations and considering the massive blessing this site has been to me, I will donate to support them.

You can use this site to gain diploma qualifications, build you faith or find your way through those tricky parts of the Bible you want to master.

There are classes, seminars, a searchable library, (the site is in five languages), a set discipleship program, ministry training courses, look honestly, everything you need to minister and understand the Bible is there.

Just go and check it out for yourself and pass the word on. You won’t regret it.
