Welcome to Metanoia Ministries!
Please take a minute to watch our “Mission Statement” video to learn more about what we do.
The name of my Ministry is Metanoia Ministry.
Metanoia is a Greek word, pronounced, “Met-a-no-ia,” which means in the pursuit of knowledge;
Metanoia is a “spiritual rebirth”, a “shift of mind” by applying new truth.
My goal for these series of lectures is to instill within you a desire to dig deeper into God’s word and draw closer to the Lord Jesus the Christ. I can do this by teaching you a better way to read the Bible.
Excerpt from my book.
On Things Concealed and Things Revealed
The Secret Things That Belong to The Lord
THE SECRET THINGS Deuteronomy 29:29
The secret things belong unto the Lord our God; but the things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all of the words of this law.
Anyone who has ever read the bible all the way through, has read many things which they did not understand. Two things are to be understood here:
- Some things we read are secret.
- Some are just concealed.
So stop talking and Take Authority.
When God created man, He gave man the authority to rule over all that He, God, had created. This included all the living things on the land, in the air and the sea, and the earth itself. We find this in the 26th and 27th verses of the 1st chapter of Genesis.
Genesis 1:26,27 (KJV)
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.?
It’s this picture of dominion or authority I would like you to see. God gave to Adam the authority over all of the earth; this means the very elements the earth is made of. Before we look at this authority, we need to concentrate on what it means to be made in the image of God.
Does God look like a human? The answer is both yes and no. On the one hand, Jesus is God so we could say, yes, and God looks like a human being. Yet on the other hand, God is Spirit, therefore, on this side of eternity we have no way to describe Him. So, just what does it mean to be made in the very image of God? To answer this, we need to ask ourselves what the attributes of God are that we know about.
As we look at this list, we see that we as humans have many of these same attributes. Of the seven I have listed only the last could anyone question, and this one also, I believe, Adam could have had, had he made the right choice.
A Desire To Dig Deeper…
I have been studying and writing Bible commentary for over 40 years. I have written 35 books and several Newspaper articles which were published as a Guest Columnist in several Newspapers. I teach in Churches and speak at Lions, Rotary and Kiwanis Clubs.
My goal for these series of lectures is to instill within you a desire to dig deeper into God’s word and draw closer to the Lord Jesus the Christ. I can do this by teaching you a better way to read the Bible. Each word needs to be read and savored, most of us believe that when we open the Bible and read a few verses that we are studying the Word, but most of the time we are only reading.
Much of the time, we could not recall what we just read ten minuets before. Even though you go to Church and listen to the Pastor, and attend Bible study, did you know that Seminaries for the most part don’t know or teach the Gospel?
