W R Burner (Minister of the Gospel)


This Web page is about the author of God's Directions for Life Website. I am a licensed Minister with a radio ministry "Revival in the Word" for over 27 years.  I have served in various positions after yielding my life to the Lord Jesus Christ 43 years ago.

I have authored literature, as directed by God's Spirit, to help identify where the church is today in regards to God's Word.  I was later introduced  to the creation of this Website towards an audience otherwise unattainable.  I thank God, and His Spirit, for continued guidance in this endeavor and all who receive from this Website!

My Commitment

I grew up in a small town in southern Illinois.  I lost my mother at an early age and was placed in several foster homes.  I was introduced to church life at an early age but was not to make a total commitment to the Lord until I was 35 years of age. 

I fell totally in love with the God; and my Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ! I have had many instances in my life where my present age would not have been attained had it not been for the divine intervention of the Lord; as reflected in "Glimpse of One Life."

Servitude to the Lord

I served in the United States Navy for 20 years.  I am a Vietnam veteran; with numerous awards for services rendered in the military.  I was called into the ministry in 1983.  I am thankful for the opportunity to have served my country; as a member of the armed forces, but of even greater significance is servitude to my Lord and His calling upon my life!

What is Happening

I see a "falling away" of the church in many once godly nations; from their former commitment.  I see a foundation being laid that is in opposition to God's Unadulterated (Pure) Word.  I see a need to return to God;  more than ever before, with 2 Chronicles 7:14 being the key: 

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

I believe we  are encouraging the "Judgmental Side of God" to be unleashed; unless a return to our former commitment takes place. There has been an unleashing of ungodliness  that formulates such a need.  In regards to this Website; I am constantly seeking the guidance of God's Spirit towards what is placed in its contents, to coincide with the times in which we live.
