Pastor Abhishek's Story

“…it wasn’t until I arrived and started going through commentaries and dictionaries on my Blue Letter Bible CD that the Lord helped me understand the passage.”
“As I spoke,” Abhishek reports, “The Lord’s presence filled the tent and dozens of Hindus repented and professed faith and trust in Jesus Christ.”

Regardless of the user’s country of origin, culture, or socioeconomic status, we are assured that God is faithful to accomplish His purposes through His Word, and are privileged to share some of the ways in which God is using BLB.
Being legally blind, I make many mistakes and, very often, I get off-track and lose everything I’ve typed. Well, I’m bound and determined to get a message to you no matter how many times it takes! You’ve been such a blessing to me over the years that I feel it’s the least I can do to let you know how valuable you are to those of us who have no real way to repay you for your ministry to those of us who haven’t the ability to learn about GOD in such a substantial way as with the BLB. The countless hours I’ve spent with you over the years are too many to recount to you, but are greatly appreciated to a degree that is beyond my ability to recount. Never-the-less, I’m trying to let you know how deeply appreciative I am for your invaluable ministry.
I’ve registered with BLBi (Blue Letter Bible Institute)...I’m on my third session of Christology and have found it very edifying so far. Being in construction and struggling with time and income, this has been a huge blessing for me.
Thanks for the update on the Greek Grammar help...it really helps me a lot on my on own personal study of the Bible. In such a way that it deepens my understanding on many verses/passages and gives me much enlightenment on its immediate context of a certain passage as well as the wider context of the entire Bible and its whole Divine vista.
A person would not be wrong by ONLY looking to the prayers in the Bible! BLB is one of the key tools I use to search on the word ‘prayer’ in scripture. And look at the different words that translate to pray/prayer in the original language, too. I was shocked to see how much my former prayers did NOT look like what was in the Bible.
I just finished my first course, ‘The Attributes of God.’ This course was amazing. I definitely felt like I was in college. This course was in-depth and really made me think.
I want to thank you for your courses in the BLB Institute part of your ministry...I always had a problem with the 3 different aspects of God the way they presented it. I just want to say that your courses have helped me put in concrete the beliefs I have in the Triune God. I have read the Bible through several times and each time was brought closer to the truth of The Triune God. I am absolute in my convictions now and just wanted you to know how much your courses are helping me.
What an amazing help in Bible studies, and just in answering questions raised while reading the Word! Even though I have used some parts for years, I keep finding more things as I dig into the site.
Powerful ministry. I use the BLB to read through the Bible every year. The accountability feature is an amazing tool!
Thank you for what you do for all of us out here, I participate in the daily reading program and utilize other tools, it’s a powerful blessing for studying the Word.
Just discovered the pronunciation feature today...oh-so-helpful when trying to explain Greek concepts to the Bible study...Your work is so appreciated...in South Africa too!
Praise the Lord! And thank you so much BLB! I use you guys all the time. I am a Sunday school teacher and you have helped me countless times!
I use Blue Letter Bible for sermon preparation. Valuable resource.
Regarding BLB’s iApp
I think I have tried almost all the Bible applications by now and can honestly say this is in my opinion the best...love the parallel and you even have the Croatian Bible available. Good work!
BLB ruined me for any other electronic Bible study application...The application mixes great commentaries and Hebrew / Greek references together with a smooth interface to log what God is showing you personally through His Holy Word.
