           is that we come to Him for eternal life

       verse and see what that verse says in many
       translations, you can see a summary, outline,
       commentaries, original Greek, Hebrew or
       Aramaic language, concordance, and much
       more.  You may want to save this as a favorite.

Observation-What does it say?Meditate on it
            Ask the Holy Spirit to illuminate it.
       Interpretation-What does it mean? Sit with
            Holy Spirit & let Him teach us. Look at
            context, who was the author, who was it
            written to, why did he write it, what was
              happening during that time period, etc.
       Application-What does it mean to me?

          Priscilla recommends these books:

                she says all are good

    
If you have received the gift of
    speaking in tongues, this is also a good
    way to gain revelation and
    understanding.  Take a few minutes to
    praying in tongues before you start
    reading your bible or when you find a
    passage or verse that is difficult to
    understand.  (Click Here) for a teaching

6)  Beware of False Teachers or False
     Teachings
      As you are studying the Holy Spirit wants to guide
      you into all truth. If something feels off, then
      something might not be quite right. Talk to God
      about your questions on the topic. There are many
      excellent teachers, but even excellent teachers
      don't always get things 100% correct.
      And many times there are different interpretations
      of what a verse or passage means.     
      And sometimes it may be that we haven't learned
      something that connects the pieces of the puzzle.
