STUDY METHOD

The Key Word Method of message preparation and outlining is not a new thing, it's just a thing I've focused on for a number of years. It all started with a Bible Study Fellowship Seminar in which the homiletical method of Bible Study was presented. My favorite homiletical teacher Donald Hamilton states that the "Key Word Method proves to be the most useful, once it is mastered" The Key Word Method requires at least two parallel ideas in the text that are related one to the other. The typical Key Word Method of study requires at least twelve steps. But, as u·su·al I have added several steps to my Key Word Study Method. The steps I've added is basically the research of similar and or like words amid the Hebrew and Greek Biblical language.

Psalms 96:2 reads Sing unto the Lord, bless his name; shew forth his salvation from day to day. 
The truth ain’t always pretty! Because the message of The Lord may be death to some and life to many. To shew forth his salvation from day to day is to accept, acknowledge and adhere to the fact that…
