Why A Blog?

My brother Daniel is what I refer to as a 'people person'. He can meet someone in passing, just once, then a few months later call them up and say he'll be in town for a night, and was wondering if he can sleep over. I on the other hand, have always been weary of putting undue burden on anyone, and for this reason I would rather sleep in a car than call someone and say, 'make me a snack I'm coming over.'
Some of you have written me, 'privately', wondering if there was any particular reason I started this blog, rather than continue posting on the Hand of Help website. There is one reason, and it has nothing to do with the ministry, in fact I still plan on posting the longer more in depth studies on the Hand of Help website, as well as the longer articles that I feel are too voluminous to post on here.
The one reason I decided to start this blog is primarily due to the fact that I don't want to put any undue burden on others, when I can carry the weight myself. All the articles that are posted on the Hand of Help website, go through a brother by the name of Scott, whom I've met, in whose home I've been and whose family I fellowshiped with. He is a good brother with a good heart, but I realized that he too has a family he must spend time with, and provide for, and if there was a way of lessening his workload, I would pursue that option. Hence this blog.
What I didn't figure into the equation was that these daily posts would be a source of nourishment for many of you, and a means by which you can stay connected with a community of like minded believers. In hindsight I believe God had it planned all along, and it came about at the opportune time.
Yes, for those of you who are wondering, I will continue to post on the Hand of Help website, in fact I am a few days away from completing another chapter in the continual study of the book of Revelation, the second volume on the Church of Thyatira, and an article entitled 'in spite of ourselves', having to do with God fulfilling His plan, sometimes, yes you guessed it, even in spite of ourselves.
For now I leave you with the grace and peace of God our Father, and hope I have answered some of your concerns.

With love in Christ,

Michael Boldea Jr.

I guess that I veiw this blog and Hand of Help about the same, only here I get to write my thoughts, opinions or Spirit lead words (or not). When I read HoH I still think or consider, I just don't write. Either way it is fellowship of the purist form.

I don't know your every thought but I suspect that you get exhausted, wether you say it or not, with many people and churches. I know that dreaded, weary feeling of talking to people who almost suck the life out of you. You wonder if they actually know God at all. So many are so bound with religion it's difficult to breathe. I remember watching Dumitru's video (you were a little younger then) asking people to quit smoking. No one responded. Most were there for a sign, not to draw closer, not to get ears to hear but to be with a "Prophet". I am delighted that during your trip to Baltimore you found at least one brother. There are many out here just far between. Don't get weary in well doing. Strength to you in Jesus name.

Michael, I am really looking forward to the next volume of Church of Thyatira - the series has been great! Thanks.

I too am very happy to hear there is another installment coming. I have been enjoying your Revelation series very much.
One of my big beefs with most organized bible studies is they usually have you read the authors book while you reference the bible. You, on the other hand, seem to direct us to the bible while referencing your take on the individual verses. I love it, love it, love it.
