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, in the church, 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 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. 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.
The wayward man is resistant to guidance and is self-willed; with the moral compass of being cast aside Similar characteristics are: Adrift, carnal, and loose morals.
A spoiled generation is one that does not blossom forth under the guidance of God's Word; but rather flourishes under the leadership of the ungodly.
Restoring godliness is a must to those nations who have tasted the goodness of God but allowed ungodliness to surface with acceptability rather than rejection.
Dismantling of human rights is at the forefront with domineering ideological patterns that deteriorate rather than increase those rights.
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.
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.
Inhumanity of man has increased in these latter days as iniquity (lawlessness) abounds with little caring towards one's fellowman.
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.
Door of life is growing more fragile in an age in which little value is placed on human life by those who seek to control through devious means.
Searching for hope is a prelude to receiving! When tragedy threatens, or strikes, one needs to reach out to God who is greater than one's present circumstance.
