Roy Burner - Minister of the Gospel
This Webpage 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 for 41 years.
I have in the past authored pamphlets towards promulgating the gospel of Jesus Christ, as directed by God's Spirit, to help identify where the church is today in regards to compliance with God's Word. I was then introduced to the creation of a Website towards an audience otherwise unattainable. I thank God for His continued guidance in this endeavor and for those who visit this Website. (Comment)
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 attainable 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 (Romans 6:22) and His calling upon my life.
I see a "falling away" of the church from its former stand in many Western nations. I see a new foundation being laid that is in opposition to its original commitment. I see a need to return to God; more than ever before!
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.
A glimpse of heaven is given in God's Word as the dwelling place of the Deity; everlasting abode of the righteous, and referred to as Paradise..
Permissive society of today warrants a day in court in regards to allowing ungodliness to flourish which is encouraged by a carnal minded society.
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.
Destitute of the truth is referenced in God's Word; as well as an astounding number of references to reasons for one's speaking the truth.
In memory of my wife I included a couple of poems that were inspired by God. I do not claim to be a poet but I have had some God-given poems in my lifetime.
Shadow of Peter emphasizes that one's importance may outshine that of another; simply because they are in the limelight, while another is not.
Youth of today without Bible knowledge, or conviction, can readily be influenced by an immoral society of ungodly content.
Handiwork of God goes beyond man's abilities; utilizing whosoever He will to institute His ways. America was on the slippery slope of ungodliness until a change took place.
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.
Slavery of today equates to being held in bondage; losing one's power of resistance, surrendering to the power of another, being a slave to passion, lust, ambition, etc.
A volatile world is unpredictable and explosive in nature with electronics helping bring the world into focus that before would not have been possible.
Sowing discord has not brighten the landscape towards peaceful solutions; rather heightened the price to pay for allowing the devilment of mankind to rule the day.
