“Billism” Truth or Fiction – The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

What is a “Billism”?

Simply put a “Billism” is a truth I have found in the Word, that I personally have not heard anyone else teach.  

Does that mean no one else has seen it? 

No, many have probably seen these and not found them important enough to share or have shared them and gotten the Ho Hum responce I receive, and quit mentioning them.

To me, they are a revelation of the Lord, They do not effect  basic Christian Doctrine but do draw me in to a fresh knowledge of the Lord.  They cause me to study the scriptures to see if they are true.

I don’t share them unless I believe I have Biblical evidence to support them. 

What disapoints me is so many could care less, or reject it out of hand, because they were never taught it.  Do they check out the scripture to see if it’s true?

Nope, Nada, Not going to happen,  God didn’t show them, so it cannot be truth.

I wish they would think about how many Denominations there are and maybe see why they were founded.  Not all church splits are about the color of the carpets. 

Luther was a good Catholic, till he discovered salvation by faith alone.    We need to study the word and recognize what it really means, not just what you have been taught it means.

Please open your eyes and ears, listen to what the Lord is saying today.

Thanks for visiting, come back soon.

    Sadly, Bill, you are very correct there. I love to study. Love to read and study before I was saved and had ever cracked open a Bible. So, for me was not a big deal to do something I liked anyway. But, I often encounter that very thing…I wasn’t taught that! Can’t be so! Really? Have you, um, actually read it yourself?

    I remember back when I was first saved, my pastor said in a sermon to never take his word for anything, but read it and study it ourselves. Well, sounded good to me! I am a obsessive note taker anyway, so that all worked out pretty good. It’s funny, though, now when he preaches if he is doing something he might have done before he looks over because he knows I’ll realize it right away, because I’ll see the not in my Bible LOL!

    Great post well said, by the way

  2. Bill, I like your idea of “Billisms.” I like to think of it as MINING. There are jewels left all over the scriptures. It is a great feeling to look a little deeper into a familiar passage and find something I never saw before. It keeps the word fresh and develops a deeper relationship with my Father.
