Update 2018: Articles Most Read

During 2016, we had a great increase of readers to this blog, mostly from the United States, some of which no longer follow us. I do not know what was the reason for the increase, nor what became of them, but because of this, articles from 2016 became the most frequently visited. These writings continue to have the highest numbers of readings, although some others have been added last year and the order has changed a little. I suppose it will take time before things normalize and some of the older writings rise to take the place that they had previous to 2016.

Following are a list of the ten most read articles from 2017 and after them the ten most visited in 2018. I normally look at these statistics in March, but this year we were traveling from March through May, so that I am now updating in June. Instead of a 12-month period, these will cover a time of 14-15 months. As of today, the total number of visits to this English blog has risen to 124,251, since this blog was put together by our grandson, John, in 2011. This last year, we have had 39,820 visits. When we add the visits to our Spanish blogspot, the total number of visits increases to 326,255, and the number over the last year to 100,439 (obviously, we have more Spanish than English readers).

Ten Most Read Articles from 2018:

      1.      A Mighty Move of God                                10/26/16                    

This is a study of Isaiah, chapter 37, with subtitles: Judah humbles itself before God; Jerusalem honors God above all; The house of prayer; The answer from God through Isaiah; and A mighty move of God.

2.    Hezekiah’s Illness and Error                        11/04/16

This study covers both chapter 38 and 39 of Isaiah. It includes an attempt to explain a very complicated issue concerning the sovereign will of God.

3.       Eight Tactics of the Enemy                          10/22/16

This is an important study about how the enemy works against the minds and lives of God’s people to this day. It is from Isaiah 36.

4.    Divine Power and Attributes                          11/17/16

Here is one of the most powerful chapters in the book of Isaiah… chapter 40. It begins with these words from the Almighty, “Comfort, comfort my people!” You know this chapter particularly, because of its last verse: “They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”

      5.  Blessing Follows the Curse                            10/13/16

My comments on chapter 34 and 35 of Isaiah, verse-by-verse, learning as the Holy Spirit teaches us from His textbook. It is wonderful to see, throughout the Bible, that the Lord’s stories have good endings!

6.      The Syndrome of Hubris                               10/01/16

The subject of this article is one that I most frequently bring up in preaching these days. Understanding this Greek term Hubris, helps us to understand what is happening in the minds and hearts of many “Christian” leaders in our times.

7.    Only God Foretells the Future                      12/05/16

One of the reasons that Christians have determined that the Bible is the Word of God, is due to prophecies that have literally been fulfilled. A high percentage of the biblical writings are prophetic. There are over 300 details concerning the coming Messiah in the Old Testament, which were literally fulfilled. Prophecies have been astoundingly fulfilled in the past century and this will go one until the end of time.

8.     Zion’s Sinners and Righteous Ones               9/13/16

Zion will be literally restored in the Millennium, but today it serves as a type of the church. In the parables of Jesus, He made it very clear that the Kingdom of God, revealed on earth, is imperfect. There are sinners in Zion among the righteous and from time to time they are exposed.

9.     Spurgeon, Ryle and the Jews                         12/17/16

Towards the end of the 20th Century, two men of God saw that His promises, given to the Jews by their prophets, must be fulfilled. These specifically referred to their return to the Promised Land. Around that time the Zionist Movement began, in which the God of Israel placed in the heart of His people to return to Palestine.

10. God and His People                                         9/01/16

God is jealous for His people and, not only condemns the worship of false gods, but also the confidence that is placed in mere men. He is the sovereign God, who took His people out of Egypt and separated them unto Himself. He is still doing this, making up His church from people taken out of the world.  

In addition:

I want to bring to your attention older articles, written previous to 2016, which received hundreds of visits. If you have never read them, I greatly encourage you to do so. A short summary is given for each one…

1.    Matt Luneau Writes about Brandon                                4/29/13

People continue to read the stories about our friend, Coach Luneau. The coach suffered a stroke since those stories were written, but he is back on his feet. The following year, his high school team was undefeated, winning the Vermont State Championship! The top story on this list is that of a star player’s accident and how God moved through it to speak to hundreds of people (if not thousands). If you have never read this story of God’s mighty moving upon high school students, please read it. If you’ve read it, you may want to read it again.

      2.   A Voice from Heaven  by Dave Brueckner                      11/2/13

      I am always anxious to get articles written by our sons, Dan and Dave. Dan wrote an article, “I Have Found the Book” about King Josiah. I translated it to Spanish and it is one of the most read articles on our Spanish blog. Right next to the top of the blog is this article by Dave. He tells us that heaven is a noisy place!

      3.   What Does It Mean to be Used of God?                         5/26/14

This article brings us a surprising lesson! It tells the story of a young Spanish boy killed in Croatia and how God moved during the eight months that he was in a coma before he died.

      4.   Quotes from Len Ravenhill's Letters, no. 11                     2/21/13

From 1983 to 1993 we received forty-five letters from Leonard Ravenhill. These are two of them that have been most read on the blogspot.

      5.   Karyn's Letter about Plane Accident                                2/8/13

     When our daughter-in-law, Karyn, heard that Steve’s plane had gone down in the Alaskan bush country, she gathered the children in the living room. Together they prayed.
      6.  Wake Up! It’s Later Than You Think                               3/19/12

     This article is an attempt to make God’s people aware of the great deception that is taking place even in the area of Bible translation. Please be informed.

7.   Strong Delusion                                                                7/29/11

      And more deception! Here you will read of two books that sold millions of copies. They both were written by people who believe in universal salvation… the assertion that everyone will be saved in the end. No one will go to hell. Christians, by the millions, lent an ear to two false prophets.     

      8.   Coach Luneau                                                                   2/13/13

      How Coach Luneau left a promising future at Syracuse University, one of the highest ranking athletic universities in the country. What drew him away? A high school basketball program in a small town in Vermont… and a calling from God.      

      9.   Old Christians                                                                   1/8/13

      I am soul-weary in a secular world that has no fear of God and is anti-God in every respect. I am tired of a “church”, which can no longer be termed evangelical, in which the bulk of the members are not born-again, have no spiritual discernment, and tolerate the entrance of most of the world’s garbage.   

 10.  The Testimony of Herman Williams                               2/29/12

And finally, the refreshing life story of an old Navajo friend, Herman Williams. A Navajo named Williams? The government agent, in charge of registering his father, couldn’t pronounce, much less spell, his real name, so he became Williams. Herman, a simple Christian, was one of the godliest men that I have ever met.
