A Different Manner of Reading Holy Scripture

Gain understanding that cannot be defeated

The book of the Psalms contains the important history of Gods’ chosen people to include their sins and their achievements. Along with the lessons of history you will also find the mercy, the forgiveness, the love and the compassion of Almighty God, the Creator, which concerns the salvation of man.

While discovering these great things you will also learn to pray to Almighty God, if you pray the Psalms rather than simply read them, you will in effect be praying to Almighty God for forgiveness and salvation.

Along with this praying of the Psalms each day there are two other books; the Gospel of St. John and the book of the Acts of the Apostles. The Gospel of St. John contains 21 chapters, by reading through three chapters each day you will complete the Gospel in one week. The book of the Acts of the Apostles contains 28 chapters, by reading through four chapters each day you will read through the whole book in one week.

By alternating weeks between the Gospel of St. John and the book of the Acts of the Apostles along with the daily praying of the Psalms according to the reading plan above; in one year’s time you will have prayed the Psalms through completely 12 times and you will have read the Gospel of St. John and the book of the Acts of the Apostles 26 times each. By continuing this reading pattern year after year, you will gain such an understanding of the love of Almighty God and the way in which we are to serve that there will be no one who can dispute your understanding, it will be embedded within you. It is of course necessary to worship with a true understanding regularly with your congregation in the truth.

May God Bless You and keep You,
