“Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, [even] by him doth this man stand here before you whole.
This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts 4:10-12)
Welcome to the Settled in Heaven Ministries Text Blog.
Settled In Heaven Ministries was founded in 2010 by Brother Rob Barkman, who for over 20 years served the Lord as a pastor, Bible teacher and author. Now retired from the pastorate, Bro Rob is now ministering through Settled In Heaven Ministries. His heart’s desire is for this ministry to be of spiritual benefit to all who might read it. To those who have come to faith in Christ as their Lord and Savior, he is seeking to share knowledge and encouragement from the Word of the Lord. For those who have not yet trusted in Christ as their Lord and Savior, he is trusting that SIH ministries will be used of God to show them their great need, and urgency, to receive the Lord’s gracious forgiveness.
This blog is dedicated fully to the honor of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Jesus has forgiven Bro. Rob of all of his sins, given him the ability to serve Him, and has secured his future eternity with Him. Having done all of this for Bro Rob, he readily acknowledges that he owes Christ all of his heart, his soul and his mind. SIH Ministries is one man’s feeble attempt to serve the Lord Jesus Christ. Rob also recognizes that ministering through SIH ministries is a gracious privilege and responsibility that is placed upon him by his Lord. To Christ be all the glory for SIH Ministries and the Word upon which this ministry is based.
May the Lord bless you with spiritual strength and refreshment as you study His Word along with us at SIH.
