“I Had a Feeling….”
It is as I suspected. The web designers dropped the ball, and put the whole website launch thing behind schedule. Please bear with me a bit longer as we sort through the unresolved issues. They have assured me things will be corrected in the next couple of days.
So, for now, the “Big Launch Party” is on hold. Its like getting to the airport only to discover they have cancelled your flight, and booked you on the next one. So, stand by. I will let you know when the actual BUTTON will be pushed, and the new and improved devotions are going to be posted.
This much I promise you — it will be wort the wait. You are going to love the changes I’ve made.
Notice the eSword Link?
It is no exaggeration whatever when I say that millions of people around the world are reaping the vast benefits of the eSword program. To be factual, as of January 2013, the 25,000,000th download occurred! It is now being used in 230 countries around the world!
“What is it?”, you might ask (if you don”t already know). Simply this — the most comprehensive Bible Study tool you can find, anywhere — and it’s FREE.
There are several translations of the Bible – FREE. There are several commentaries by some of the most renowned scholars in history — FREE. There are scores of research and resource books in the Reference Library — FREE.
There is a Graphics Viewer, which provides multiple Bible Maps, Charts, and historical works of art — FREE.
There are several Dictionaries to help you study the words of the BIble — FREE.
There are several Daily Devotions listed under the “TOOLS” tab — FREE. By the way, Rylisms Daily Devotions are there as well!
There is a place to write your own notes, comments, and thoughts about a verse of Scripture you are studying, and then print it through an word processor program embedded in the software — FREE.
I could go on and on. I have been using eSword for almost fouorteen years now, and rarely need to look anywhere else. The early success of eSword was so astonishing that many Bible software providers have now partnered with eSword, and some of their modules are available for a fee, which (if you want) you can purchase.
The bottom line is this — eSword is hands down the single, most comprehensive Bible Study tool you will ever find that is 100% FREE….and ready for you to download now.
You can install it on your PC, your iPAD, or your MAC — FREE.
So what are you waiting for? Click the link in the sidebar, get the software, and — who knows — you just might end up writing some devotions of your own! If you are on a mobile device and cannot see the link, click www.e-sword.net
It’s Just Around the Corner….
You can already see some of the changes we have made in the new look of the site — cleaner, simple, nothing gaudy. The video link will not work until the first of next week….there are things that still need to be worked out….but you’re gonna love it once it opens up!
There are some other changes you need to know about. First, the daily devotions will no longer be daily. I realize that for some of this this will be disappointing, but I assure you — I think you will like what we are doing even better. Rather than post short, brief devotional thoughts — we instead are going to publish devotionals that are a bit longer to hold more content, and also a bit deeper as we delve into and develop themes of Truth. For the record, the daily devotions will still appear in the archives, and remain there for sometime.
I would encourage you to buy a three ring note book, print out the devotions and build your own collection to have as a hard copy. That way you can read them as often as you wish. And share them with others.
That brings me to the second change you will notice in the new devotional format. Not only will it be longer, but at the end of each devotion will be a series of question to help facilitate a discussion — like at a home meeting, or a Bible Study. And best of all, you will find a link to a full PDF version of the devotional which will be appear in “newsletter format”, which you can print and share with others.
There will be other features added as we move along, so bear with us while we work out the glitches that inevitably occur when you change horses in the middle of a race!
