As I was in prayer this morning I felt compelled to write to you and share with you about some of my thoughts with regards to studying with Global University. I am not new to the study material of Global University, yet as I study "Old Testament Literature: His Story,"  I find myself experiencing a fresh outlook regarding the Old Testament.  It is not only imparting intellectual and academic knowledge but it also helps bring about an inner transformation.  I find it refreshes my spirit so much so that at times I have to pause from my studies to spend time praising and worshiping Father God! It is my prayer that many more Christians take the study of the Word of God more seriously as it will benefit their lives and those around them.  May God continue to use Global University in Malta to bring about a renaissance of Biblical knowledge and experience to help set Christians in Malta on fire for God!  Jesus is soon coming and every true believer should equip himself in the same way the Apostle Paul admonished young Timothy, "Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." 2 Timothy 2:15. May God continue to bless Global Universtiy in Malta and give you the ability you need as you endeavour to serve Him in the ministry He has trusted you with. THE BENEFIT OF THE SYSTEMATIC AND METHODICAL STUDY OF THE BIBLE The Wesleyan movement was the barricade which stopped the scientific and rationalistic invasion from German universities. The Anglican church had fallen into this trap, but John and Charles Wesley were used by God to stop this front. Today, there are many thoughts and teachings which are also causing much theolgical problems. These forces of change, need to be challenged. God needs you to know his word in a deeper way. This does not mean existentialism. It means simply study the Bible in its socio-politcal and cultural contexts. You will be able to read and understand the Bible in the way the first receipients understood it. Then, the Church will be able to give the correct meaning and application of the Bible as God intended when it was written. Global University is here to help you do this. to our monthly appointment. I want to thank you for keeping us encouraged by your positive comments. Global University is doing its best to encourage all Christians to become students of the Word of God. Reading the Bible is great, and must be encouraged. Also we encourage you to study it systematically. The great Wesleyan revival in the 18th century was the result of this methodical study. All major Pentecostal Churches have their roots in the Methodist movement. Therefore, we encourage you to become involved in one of our programs, and deepen your roots in sound evangelical theology. Read more below.
