B.R.O.G. stands for Believers Relying On God ...

So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.
~ Romans 10:17

Indescribable - Chris Tomlin

Each of us has his or her personal walk in life. How you do that is between you and God. God’s Word interprets itself, and the comments and statements I make throughout these pages are my own feelings and understanding. My heart is that you read through these pages and are blessed with the truths of God’s Word. For you to rise to a higher standard spiritually, by dwelling on these truths and living by them.

But without faith if it impossible to please him:
for he that cometh to God must believe that he
is, and that he is a rewarder of them that
diligently seek him
~ Hebrews 11:6

Wonderful truths in God's Word.

But as we were allowed of God to be put in trust
with the gospel, even so we speak: not as pleasing
men, but God, which trieth our hearts.
~ I Thessalonians 2:4

God’s Word has many wonderful truths revealed to us, and all we have to do is read the scriptures. By putting these truths in our hearts, and living by them, we will see great things come to pass in our lives. By the grace of God and his direction, I am going to share these truths with you, by rightly dividing his Word of truth.

If you come to God with all your wants and desires, he will comfort and protect you wherever you go. You will receive the full benefits of the more than abundant life that is promised in God's Word. I have experienced many of these benefits in my life, because I believe and trust in God.

Ye are of God; little children, and have overcome them:
because greater is he that is in you, than he that is
in the world.
~ I John 4:4

For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning,
that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.
~ Romans 15:4

B.R.O.G. Knows ...

Forgiveness is the most powerful thing you can do in your life. If you have been wronged by someone, forgive them, and then forget about it. True forgiveness is totally removing it from your heart and mind. The feelings you will experience will not only be peaceful, but liberating. Forgiveness feels like, removing a ton of weight off your shoulders.

Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
~ Colossians 3:13

If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.
~ Romans 12:18

By not forgiving someone who has done an injustice to us. We become that evil that has been done to us. We can carry that to our graves, or chose to sacrifice our peace for as long as we want. By following the example in God’s Word, we can have peace and move on in our lives by forgiving one another.

Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men.
~ Romans 12:17

Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.
~ Romans 12:21

And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding,
shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
~ Philippians 4:7

B.R.O.G. Knows ...

We are all members of the Body of Christ. Being members we need to walk by the Spirit and edify one another with Charity (the Love of God). When we walk with charity others see that love of God in us, and we become examples for others to follow.

If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
~ Galatians 5:25

Let all your things be done with charity.
I Corinthians 16:14

And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.
I Peter 4:8

Walking by the Spirit is a way of life, and should include all areas of our lives. With the World Wide Web and e-mailing we often forward jokes and other things that are not edifying to our brothers and sisters in Christ. Our response to the forwarded joke or e-mail that is not edifying, should be "the joke stops here", and then delete it.

Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.
~ I Timothy 4:12

Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother’s way.
~ Romans 14:13

But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are
all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ,
by whom are all things, and we by him.
~ I Corinthians 8:6

B.R.O.G. Knows ...

Being born again believers we are the family of God and should act as such. We should guard our tongues, and edify each other with how we speak and act. Before we put our mouths in motion, we should consider if what we are about to say will edify our fellow brothers or sisters in Christ. If we can not edify others in our lives, than we should not speak or act.

Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.
~ Ephesians 4: 29

Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.
~ Colossians 4:6

My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.
~ I John 3:18

We are lights in this world, and others view us by how we edify and treat one another. They want the light that they see in us in their lives, and we should share the Word of God with them, so they can become lights in this world as we are. By sharing the Word of God, their believing will be increased to a point where they can receive all the benefits God has to offer. Lead by example and walk in Charity (the love of God) at all times.

Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.
~ Romans 14:19

Let every one of us please his neighbour for his good to edification.
~ Romans 15:2

As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.
~ Galatians 6:10

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
~ Hebrews 13: 8

B.R.O.G. Knows ...

Many times we have spoken the Word of God to others, and after the conversation we realize that it went in one ear and out the other. We start to take it personally, blaming ourselves for not getting these people to believe God's Word. God tells us this is not our responsibility to get them to believe. Our job is to plant the seed and God will give the increase.

So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.
~ I Corinthians 3: 7

Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.
~ Luke 8:11

We are to plant the seeds of truth, and God will take care of all the details. We can have confidence that he has started a good work in us, and we should continue until we are gathered together. Be bold in speaking the Word of God to others, knowing that your work is not in vain.

Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:
~ Philippians 1:6

For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
~ Philippians 2:13

That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men,
but in the power of God.
~ I Corinthians 2:5

B.R.O.G. Knows ...

Listen to that little voice within you, because it is God guiding you in your walk in life. Always do what God tells you to do without question, and see wonderful deliverance in all areas of your lives. Stand by the Word of God, and God will stand by you. Do what God tells you to do, then expect God to do his part.

And being fully persuaded that, what he (God) had promised, he was able also to perform.
~ Romans 4:21

God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?
~ Numbers 23:19

For God sent not his Son into the world to
condemn the world; but that the world
through him might be saved.
~ John 3:17

B.R.O.G. Knows ...

It is time that "WE", the born again believers make a commitment to stand boldly on the Word of God. Take a stand on God's Word, and cross the threshold of the door, entering the new creation that "YOU ARE" . Close the door behind you, never returning to the old nature by renewing your mind and accepting "who YOU are in CHRIST".

I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
~ John 10:9

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
~ Romans 12:2

Being born again believers we are born of God's Spirit, and are sons of God. Jesus Christ is our big brother according to the scriptures. What a family to be a part of, the family of God. It is as simple as believing Romans 10:9 and 10.

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raise him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
~ Romans 10:9

For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness: and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
~ Romans 10:10

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
~ II Corinthians 5:17

Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
~ John 3:3

And how shall they preach, except they be sent? As it is written,
How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of
peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!
~ Romans 10:15

B.R.O.G. Knows ...

As the saying goes "If you are not the lead dog the view never changes". Become the lead dog by moving out and committing 100% to the Word of God. You will never be disappointed with the wonderful life God leads you to, and the blessings that come from your stand on God's Word.

Become a labourer of God's Word and see the great blessings manifested in your life. Knowing that the rewards God has in store for you is far greater than you, or I can imagine.

Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour.
~ I Corinthians 3:8

For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building.
~ I Corinthians 3:9

Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.
~ Philippians 2:16

And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
~ Mark 11: 22

B.R.O.G. Knows ...

That the Bible, as originally given, is the revealed Word and Will of God and was authored by God not by men, and is not open to any private interpretation. Knowing these truths about the revealed Word and Will of God inspires us to look at the Bible differently. Many say that the scriptures were written by men, but the Word of God says otherwise. These men who wrote the Bible were given revelation from God to reveal his Word and his Will through them.

For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
~ II Peter 1:21

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.
~ II Peter 1:20

When man puts his own private interpretation in the Word of God we have division, envy and strife. Private interpretation began entering into the Word of God, when man translated the original scriptures. Over time there are many forgeries, and that is why we need to rightly divide God’s Word.

Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.
~ Romans 16:17

For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.
~ Romans 16:18

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
~ Philippians 4:13

B.R.O.G. Knows ...

The Word of God gives us instruction in righteousness and so many more things. WOW! What a wonderful truth knowing that our Father has given us the "Book of Life" in his Word "The Bible". We must become as workman, who rightly divides the scriptures to obtain the accurate knowledge of God's Word.

All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
~ II Timothy 3:16

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth.
~ II Timothy 2:15

For there is one God, and one mediator
between God and men, the man
Christ Jesus;
~ I Timothy 2:5

B.R.O.G. Knows ...

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is the way, the truth, and the life and provides the only access to God the Father. Acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord is the only way into the Father's Kingdom.

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
~ John 14:6

Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
~ John 3:5

As you can see Jesus made it clear that "NO MAN" cometh unto the Father, but by him. Man is only body and soul, and without God, until he acknowledges the savior, the Lord Jesus Christ and successfully confesses Romans 10:9 and 10.

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raise him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
~ Romans 10:9

For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness: and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
~ Romans 10:10

Becoming born again believers we have the promise of eternal life and Dr. John G Lake says it so well ...

The beginning of immortality is when God Breathes His life into you and me, and our spirits become the recipients of eternal life in Jesus Christ.
"Dr. John G. Lake"

For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die,
we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die,
we are the Lord’s.
~ Romans 14:8

B.R.O.G. Knows ...

Because we are both sons of God, we share the same Father – who is God Almighty, the Creator of the heavens and earth. We also share the same inheritance. God cannot and will not allow us to fail when we believe – because He’s obligated to fulfill His Word.
"Victor Paul Wierwille”

The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
~ Romans 8:16

Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.
~ Galations 4:7

For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
~ Romans 8:14

But my God shall supply all your need according
to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus
~ Philippians 4:19

B.R.O.G. Knows ...

We are the Children of God. What a wonderful truth knowing that we can go to God and cry "Abba Father". By believing in our brother Jesus Christ, we became the children of God and joint heirs with Christ. Many verses in the scriptures refer to us as Children of God, so we should accept that truth and go to our Father with all of our desires. We should share with him even the smallest requests knowing that he will handle all of the details, because we believe and trust in him.

And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
~ II Corinthians 6:18

For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
~ Romans 8:15

And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.
~ Galations 4:6

And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
~ Romans 8:17

Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication
with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
~ Philippians 4:6

 

Let Go and Let God

As children bring their broken toys
With tears for us to mend,
I brought my broken dreams to God,
Because He is my friend.

But then instead of leaving Him
In peace to work alone,
I hung around and tried to help
with ways that were my own.

At last, I snatched them back again
And cried, "How can you be so slow?"
"My child," He said, "What could I do?
You never did let go."

I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me,
and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit:
for without me ye can do nothing.
~ John 15:5

B.R.O.G. Knows ...

There are many fruits of the Spirit, and manifesting them is as simple as walking in the Spirit. Living our lives in this manner, we are the lights in the world, and shining brightly is our reasonable service unto God.

The fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
~ Galatians 5:22-23

Love - so much is contained in that one little word! It is the word that best describes God, for as we know God is love. He loved us and taught us how to love and how to live. When we love others, we show the world the fruit of His Spirit in our lives.

A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.
~ John 13:34

By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
~ John 13:35

Joy - is the infallible fruit of the Spirit of God in our walk in life. It is deeper than the superficial happiness most of us strive for in our lives. Joy is not dependent on circumstances, but is rooted deep in divine springs that will never run dry.

These things I have spoken to you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.
~ John 15:11

Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.
~ Romans 15:13

Peace - only when we are at peace with God can we truly be at peace with others and with ourselves. When we look to him to meet all our needs, his Holy Spirit will fill our hearts with peace that is beyond our understanding.

"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let it be afraid."
~ John 14:27

Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
~ Romans 5:1

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but
of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
~ II Timothy 1:7

B.R.O.G. Knows ...

As we walk through life, we have many afflictions to deal with. If anything comes up in your life that is overwhelming, just look to God's Word and see what he says. We have the assurance that wherever we go in life that our Father (God) is with us.

There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
~ I Corinthians 10:13

Have I not commanded thee? Be strong and of good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
~ Joshua 1:9

Many afflictions in our life seem impossible to us, but let God be God, and release them to him for he will take care of all of them. We don’t have to understand or do it ourselves, for God’s ways and thoughts are greater than ours. There is nothing in the universe that is beyond him. He only wants to bless us, because we are his sons and daughters. If we need wisdom or understanding all we have to do is ask our Father (God).

If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
~ James1:5

But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead
dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead
shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that
dwelleth in you.
~ Romans 8:11

B.R.O.G. Knows ...

Some wonderful truths are that the Spirit of God dwelleth in us, and our bodies are the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you and me. How can we ever be defeated in our walk in life with the power that lives within us?

Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
~ I Corinthians 3:16

What? Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
~ I Corinthians 6:19

But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither
have entered into the heart of man, the things which
God hath prepared for them that love him.
~ I Corinthians 2:9

B.R.O.G. Knows ...

God knows that we love him, and his love for us is far greater than we can ever imagine. We can have confidence that as brothers and sisters in Christ, we will never lose Gods love.

For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
~ Romans 8:38

Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us form the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
~ Romans 8:39

Be not deceived: evil communications
corrupt good manners.
~ I Corinthians 15:33

B.R.O.G. Knows ...

We are all members of the Body of Christ, and family members of God. Knowing and believing who we are in the Body of Christ is very important in our walk in life. God's Word tells us how He (God), looks at the members of the Body of Christ. We should put these scripture verses in our hearts, living by them every day.

So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.
~ Romans 12:5

That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another.
~ I Corinthians 12:25

And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.
~ I Corinthians 12:26

God is a Spirit: and they that worship him
must worship him in spirit and in truth.
~ John 4:24

Speaking In Tongues:
A Biblical Perspective
by Robert Lindfelt

And God is able to make all grace abound toward you;
that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things,
may abound to every good work:
~ 2 Corinthians 9:8

B.R.O.G. Knows ...

Learn to trust in God, and his ability to supply all our needs. God is our sufficiency, and the truth is everything we have, we received from God.
Many of us make comments like, "This is my house, this is my car, this is my boat and I worked hard for them". If we are honest with ourselves, we know all these things have come from God to bless our lives. We should thank God daily for the blessings he has manifested in our lives, because we believe and trust in him.

Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God.
~ II Corinthians 3:5

The price of gas, food, insurance, home mortgage, utilities, credit card debt, etc... We need not be concerned about any of these, because God is our sufficiency. If the price of gas is $10.00 a gallon we know that God will supply our need. We should honor God our Father by giving back a portion of the wonderful abundance he has blessed us with.

Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for
God loveth a cheerful giver.
~ 2 Corinthians 9:7

And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:
~ 2 Corinthians 9: 8
