So what about the Author?
About the Author? It’s not about me, but about Christ Jesus. But I guess if you’d like to know a bit about the author of this site and how this site came to be, I can oblige a little. I happen to know the author pretty well.
My name is Brian, and I live with my wife of 20 years and family in, NH. I’ve been studying God’s Word for approximately 30 years and am still just as intrigued with the Bible and the truth found therein now as I was when I first got into it. I am fortunate enough for the Lord to open my eyes a great deal to his Word, and shows me particular things that might often go unnoticed by some. So I share these things, and aim to do all that the Lord directs me to do.
Most recently I have authored the book: Kingdom of Darkness in a Fallen World, and is now available in standard paperback, Large Print, and in eBook format. Also, I am a member of Wealthy Affiliate University, which has helped me out tremendously concerning the hosting and creation of this site. You can visit my profile over there (click this link to visit WA Profile).
Anything that I wind up posting on this site, be it a Bible Study addition or a blog post, it’s all done prayerfully, and not lightly. I’m focused on God being in control of this site, not me. Nor will I come up with some weird doctrine, there’s enough of that out there. But all things I write here on the Supernatural Truth in Christ site will ultimately and most blatantly point right back to God and his Word.
Throughout time, I have had the experience of being saved, backsliding, rededicating back to Christ, backsliding, repenting, and eventually (to make short of it) had become broken enough to be a usable vessel for the Lord Jesus. But when I say broken, I’m not talking physically or mentally, but spiritually. Maybe that’ll be touched on in a later post.
Why create this site?
To put it plainly, I really didn’t want to do this. The Lord has been tugging at me to do it for several years, but I always found a way to ignore him, and just concentrated on my job, or anything else that I could do that would make it either impossible or at least difficult to put any serious time into a site such as this. If you were to ask me about it then, I wouldn’t have been as clear about it as I’m being now. But I’m just being blunt.
Eventually the Lord changed my circumstances and caused for me to be able to do this full time, actually making somewhat of a ministry out of it. I say somewhat because I don’t really see it as a ministry, just me sharing whatever the Lord’s put on my heart to share about his Word. But I’m at a loss as to what else to call it. In my view, a ministry does a heck of allot more than create a website. But I digress.
The Lord has a funny way to work on me in his Word. For years I struggled with the question,’What does God want me to do for him?’ Now I wasn’t looking for works to do to insure a seat in Heaven, Christ already took care of all that when I asked him in and gave my life to him. I just wanted to please God and make him happy for the sake of making him happy.
I just didn’t realize at the time that I was ignoring his prompting of the Holy Spirit. It just seemed like creating a website for God was kind of taking the easy way out of really getting out there and doing something! He kept pointing this piece of scripture out to me when spending time with him.
1 Peter 4:11 If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
Then the reality of that piece of scripture sunk in, and opened my eyes to what I was doing for the Lord. NOTHING! So I realized that the only thing that the Lord had made readily available to me in order to do anything for him, was the very thing I didn’t want to do in the first place.
So I finally realized that he was dangling the answer to my prayer right in front of me so I took it. And he really pulled everything together so that this site could turn into something that would be fit to do something for someone out there. Either lead to Christ, edify, educate, promote someone to open a Bible, anything!
There’s no good way to describe how much better life can be when you stop being stiff-necked and just simply do what the Lord is telling you to do. If I had any idea, I would have started this long ago, and regret ever sitting on what God had clearly called me to do.
Has the Lord been tugging at your heart about doing something for him that you’re just not sure about? Don’t let it go unchecked, because he may just be giving you an answer to a prayer, even if the answer seems too easy. There’s nothing wrong with easy! It is good to be sure, and to wait on the Lord. But you can always stop waiting if he’s given you an answer. That was my problem anyways, I didn’t stop waiting even though he gave me what I was asking. It just wasn’t what I had expected.
I believe that this medium is what the Lord has given me to speak, minister, and give God all the glory in all things through Christ Jesus, in whatever ability he has given me to do so. Please review the About STIC page for more details concerning the site itself, and it’s reason for being.
So there we have it. I hope you enjoy this site, but not just enjoy, I pray that it is a blessing to you somehow. Please feel free to participate on the site and leave your comments. I’ve got the site set for them to be available pretty much everywhere.
If you’d like to contact me for any reason please send an e-mail HERE , and I’ll respond to it as soon as possible.
Thank you and God bless all of you in the name of Christ Jesus our Lord!
