The Memorials in Scripture

One of the things I love about the Old Testament is the many examples of God’s interventions on behalf of his people. When a people covenant with God and keep the covenant, they are entitled to the blessings of a king and kingdom over them. A good king feeds his people and provides for them. […]

Cleansing the Lepers

In ancient Israel, they had very specific procedures to pronounce a leper clean. The symbolism is amazing. Last week I shared a bit about the symbolism of the purification period after a woman has a child or any individual has a sore that won’t heal. This week I want to share the amazing symbolism used […]

On Issues of Blood

While listening to Jared Halverson’s Unshaken podcast on Leviticus (nearly 5 hours long!) I’m so edified by the amount of content he is covering and the insights and connections he’s making. I heartily recommend listening to it even if you don’t do it within Scripture Notes so you can take notes by your scriptures while […]

Have you ever received an unexpected gift? Life is full of surprises and on this journey, sometimes we receive something that proves to be a blessing to us. Sometimes these gifts are physical, and sometimes they are more of a spiritual nature. In writing this post today, I was contemplating this topic of gifts in […]

What the Prophets and the Lord say about Isaiah

In preparation for our upcoming webinar with Dr. Gileadi, I thought it would be appropriate to dust off my Isaiah studies a bit. If Isaiah is still a sealed book to you, I strongly recommend you devote the time to listen to Dr. Gileadi’s Analytical Commentary which he graciously allowed me to embed as chapter […]

Current World Events in Isaiah’s Prophetic Timeline

Years ago, Dr. Avraham Gileadi’s “Analytical Commentary on the Book of Isaiah” really opened my eyes to understanding the writings and prophecies of Isaiah. He has published numerous books and other content to continue teaching the critical words of this prophet, including tying themes together relevant to our spiritual growth, and current world events. You […]

Using Search in Scripture Notes – God opens the Eyes

Someone recently asked about doing searches in Scripture Notes so I thought I would elaborate a little here. Scripture Notes uses what is called a Boolean search engine, which allows for qualifying your search term for more refined results. For instance, if I search for the word “eye” in the scriptures, it would return 139 […]

The Forgetting Curve in Scripture Study

How good is your memory? Do you have the scriptures memorized with a full understanding of the meaning of every scripture? Of course we don’t. The human brain has a limited capacity for recalling information. Student often cram before an exam (guilty), try to do their best, and then proceed to forget almost everything they […]

Asking God for what is expedient
Mar 27

If ye ask anything that is NOT expedient for you

It’s a wonderful thing when something clicks into place for you. For years I was worried that if I prayed for the wrong thing I could be condemned for it. This thought originates from these verses in the Doctrine and Covenants. D&C 88:64. Whatsoever ye ask the Father in my name it shall be given […]
