Roy 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, in the church, after yielding my life to the Lord Jesus Christ 42 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 come on this Website!
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 along with one of my sisters. 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 of my creation; and a loving 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."
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.
I see a "falling away" of the church, in the Western world, from its former stand. I see a foundation being laid that is in opposition to its original commitment. I see a need to return to God; more than ever before, with 2 Chronicles 7:14 being the cry of today:
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 form 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.
God's Directions for Life website is designed to help one identify with the Word of God concerning the economic, political, and religious times in which we live.
Time for encouragement is necessary in a world that is in turmoil with the devil's advocate hard at work to ensure dissension, mistrust, and disunity.
Weekly Audio Podcast "Revival in the Word" helps identify with the Word of God concerning the economic, political, and religious times in which we live.
A degenerate society is one that deviates from the norm of yesteryear; departing from its moral upbringing, and former status as a godly nation.
Insurgence of riotous times is in many nations of the world. There is a dire need of a reconciliation to God with a withdrawal from hated towards one another.
Noteworthy links is devoted to help identify other sites who are contributing towards the betterment of the soul. They share a common goal in an effort to help make this a better world.
Timeless messages that are seemingly endless in value. I have heard many messages ministered that I have never forgotten over the years and at times recalled to my mind..
Topics of value is a collection of God-inspired messages I did not want to delete simply because they entered into a different category.
Revival in the Word was on the air for over 27 years on WJJM Radio. I am thankful to the Lord for the messages that have been laid upon my heart.
Voices of dissension ring a distinct sound; some to the tune of social injustice, others towards the demise of godly and just ways of life.
In the last days perilous times shall come and all that will be godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution; evil men and seducers shall grow worse and worse.
Programming the mind is of upmost importance with an input that will not lash back later in life. Many today have allowed ungodliness to penetrate and pollute the mind.
