Welcome to Empowered Bible Study Ministries

Bible study is essential to our Christian walk. As we study God's Word, our personal relationship with God grows deeper and deeper. It empowers us to live for the Lord in every aspect of our lives. This is what has inspired me to do an online Bible study.

Many years ago my husband introduced me to a commentary on the book of Colossians and I was so blessed as the Scripture came to life before my very eyes. Since that day we have developed an extensive library and enjoy studying God's Word.

I have prepared some Bible studies that I would like to share with you. My prayer is that they will bless you as much as they have blessed me in preparing them. I pray your life is touched and that it would inspire you to live every moment of every day for Christ.

The Lord Guards my Soul

Satan may break our bodies down but he cannot take our soul!   2 Thessalonians 3:3 - But the Lord is faithful. He will establish you and protect you against the evil one.~  
The word translated "protect" (guarded, shielded) is phrouroumenous, a military term used to refer to a garrison within a city. It's an inner area of protection; though the city wall is taken, the garrison is not. No matter how the world persecuted or killed believers' bodies, God was guarding their souls. The tense of the verb in the Greek reveals that we are constantly being guarded by God. We may have to endure trials, persecution, or violent death, but our souls cannot be harmed if we have accepted Christ's gift of salvation.

As scripture says, for me to live is Christ, to die is gain ~ Philippians 1:21
