There is no copyright on the truth, because it is God’s word (John 17:17). Permission is given for these studies to be duplicated if done including this copyright,
and distributed free of charge (Isaiah 45:13, 1 Corinthians 9:18), "freely ye have received, freely give." (Matthew 10:8).
Permission to duplicate these studies in part or whole for sale or profit is refused (Proverbs 23:23, Isaiah 56:11, John 2:16).
If you wish to copy and paste from any web page on this site to a Word document, then avoid using "Keep source formatting" as Google Chrome, Safari, and Opera will keep the original background or text colors, while Firefox and Internet Explorer do not. Using "Merge formatting" or "Keep text only" seems to work OK on all browsers. Altenatively you can copy and paste from a "Print Preview" which should then give the same colors as a printer would.
The bible studies on this site have been changed to use a Unicode Greek font and a Hebrew Unicode font so that people can read the Greek and Hebrew clearly. However, at the present time some of the bibles have not been converted. They contain Greek characters which can only be viewed on your computer if you have the same Greek font installed in it. They are also used with some bible studies obtained attached to email from Logos Apostolic bible college. You may still read the studies without them, but the Hebrew and Greek characters will appear as English characters and punctuation marks, or something else. The Greek and Hebrew fonts were designed by Dr. Jimmy Adair from Scholars Press and are available as free downloads from a number of other sites. You can download it here with its "Read-me" notes as one zipped file, or you may download them individually as non-zip files by clicking on the links below.
Save the font to a flash drive, or CD, or some place on your computer. The Readme file will open, so just save it to your computer. After you have downloaded the
it, you must install the font on your computer. The installation may be different, depending on your computer setup, but here are a few examples you can try:
1. Start / My Computer / C: / Windows / Fonts / File / Install New Fonts ...
2. Start / Settings / Control Panel / Fonts / File / Install New Fonts ... and following the instructions from there.
3. Or you can try copying and pasting the font file into the fonts folder in Windows.
This font contain accents for the Greek which work perfectly well in Microsoft Word and in Microsoft Front Page, and Expression Web, but for some reason Microsoft Internet Explorer sometimes puts a space after each accent or vowel point, and it does not look right. In order to get round this problem we have removed the Greek accents.
The Hebrew on this site now uses the Unicode "David" font which comes with later versions of Windows. It seems to work well with Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox 3.5, Google Chrome, and Safari 4, but if you have problems seeing the characters properly you may need to enable Unicode.
You may need to also manually select 'Unicode (UTF-8)' in certain browsers. For instance:
In Internet Explorer, you can select - View / Encoding / Unicode (UTF-8).
In Mozilla Firefox 3.5 you can select - View / Character Encoding / Unicode (UTF-8).
In Google Chrome you can select - Control the current page (top right) / Encoding / Unicode (UTF-8).
In Safari 4 you can select - Display a menu for the current page (top right) / Text Encoding / Unicode (UTF-8).
Every page on this website contains a Meta tag including - content="text/html; charset=utf-8"
Special characters such as ō, ē, and ā, are obtained by clicking Symbol on the Insert menu.
The scripture references in these studies are in the order, Book, Chapter, Verse.
Example: Mark 11:23 refers to the book of Mark, chapter 11, verse 23.
Example: Jam 1:6-7 refers to the book of James, chapter 1, verses 6 to 7 inclusive.
God has laid down in his word how to obtain the truth from the scriptures. Leviticus 11:1-8 describes how to obtain "clean meat" under the law and gives
the principles for us to obtain spiritually "clean meat", that is, the truth from God’s word. Two things are essential, the scripture must be rightly
divided (dividing the hoof), and it must be meditated upon (chewing the cud). These scriptures need therefore to be meditated upon, so go over the same scripture
over and over again, just as a cow chews the same food over and over. God is under no obligation to reveal his truth to anyone who does not do it. Reading the
scriptures through without meditation is equivalent to dividing the hoof, but not chewing the cud. This is the same as eating swine’s flesh, which is unclean meat
(Leviticus 11:7), it provokes God’s anger (Isaiah 65:3-4), and he will ultimately consume those that do it (Isaiah 66:15-17). The best way is to read the scriptures aloud over
and over, because by doing this you will be seeing the words, saying the words, and hearing the words, all of which help the word to enter into your heart.
[Not every study on this sight is rightly divided. Some have additional information added from outside of the scripture. For example, the study on "Christmas" cannot be based on scripture alone, as it is not a scriptural subject. Some studies are short of using every scripture relevant to that subject, simply because of the difficulty in doing everything perfect. Nevertheless a diligent effort has been made to present enough scripture in these studies to reveal the truth when properly meditated upon.]
Secondly, study with a humble and open heart, "God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble." (James 4:6); he is under no obligation to open the understanding of anyone who thinks that they already know it all.
Thirdly, be prepared to change your ideas if God shows you something new. "Stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry." (1 Samuel 15:23), and those who stubbornly refuse to change when some new truth is revealed to them are resisting perfection. Nobody will ever make perfection unless they are prepared to change every single belief that they currently hold, when it is revealed through the rightly divided scriptures to be wrong. When Jesus returns again, he is coming for a perfect church, "a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle, or any such thing; ... holy and without blemish." (Ephesians 5:27).
My prayer is that God will bless with understanding all those who approach these studies with an open and a humble heart, that we may all be part of that glorious church when the day comes.
Yours in Jesus Christ, Roy Page.
