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 a great number of years, and come to the Lord 42 years ago.
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 this Website towards an audience otherwise unattainable. I thank God for His continued guidance in this endeavor and for those who visit 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 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.
As a roaring lion is used as a biblical reference to one's enemy; and as such is a descriptive narrative used many times in God's Word.
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.
Avalanche of ungodliness is an overwhelming influence that has far surpassed the pre-Flood, Sodom and Gomorrah, and fall of Babylon era of time.
The freshness of God's Spirit is prevalent, to the believer, when one's focus is on God and the Lord Jesus Christ!
The wayward man is resistant to guidance and is self-willed. The moral compass of such an individual has been cast aside.
Without a preacher text is taken out of God's Word which assures the necessity of a preacher; possibly even more so in the unhealthy environment we presently live in.
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.
Return to God is of extreme necessity if one has withdrawn! We are seeing devastation in the world today that has shaken the very foundations of many hearts and lives.
The neglected word is a failure to receive the Word of God in its entirety. Many are walking away from God's Word as they line up to the secular society of today.
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.
God's watchman is to sound the alarm to warn of impending judgment; unless repentance is sought as in the case of Nineveh.
