How To Use Our Blog
The Parable Power Blog is designed to help you discover the mysteries hidden within God's parables (His word, works and wonders). The key here is "help you". We will not explain every passage or answer every question. We believe that you must be active in the discovery of truth in order to receive God's best. Therefore, our goal is to lead you into the discovery of truth.
Unleashing The PowerHidden In The Parable
The scripture tells us to meditate in the word day and night (Psalms 1:1-3). God has promised that if we do this, we will become strong and fruitful. In order to receive the promise, we must participate in the process.
Don't Rush Through Our Articles!
Again, our goal is to help YOU to discover the Power in the Parable. In order for this to happen, you must read the articles carefully and spend time reading and considering all scripture passages and reference material. Sometimes the light will NOT turn on until your second or third time through the article and references. The ministry of the Holy Sprot is to help you to discover and understand the truth (John 16:13 ). Pray about what you are reading and expect the help that God has promised (2 Pet 1:3-5). We should never forget thst it has been given to us to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven (Matthew 13:11)!
Popup Scripture References
Whenever you see a scripture reference within our articles (e.g. Prov 25:2), you can immediately view the passage by hovering over the reference with your mouse. A popup window will appear displaying the text of the passage. This allows you to read the verse(s) without having to move to another page. The scripture is presented in the New King James Version, however, you can easily view other versions of the passage by clicking on the More link at the end of the passage. When you click the More link, a new tab will be displayed which allows you to change versions or do additional research.
The popup feature is made possible by BibleGateway.com. Bible Gateway provides excellent Bible study tools online. We appreciate this resource and highly recommend Bible Gateway's tools and apps.
Keys To Help You Discover Hidden Treasure
As you progress through our articles, occasionally, you will see a "Study Principle" that is used while developing material in the article. It looks like this:
Key Study Principle (Read); 2 Peter 1:19-23
The things Jesus did confirm Old Testament prophecies about Him. We have to find and study those passages to better understand His ministry.
These principles are derived from the scripture reference (top right). You should carefully read the scripture and take some time to consider the underlying principle. These truths will be invaluable as you continue to study.

LISTED AFTER EACH ARTICLE IS A mORE lINKS SECTION. These videos and web links are carefully sselected to give you a resource for more information about topics discussed in the article.
