The Word of Faith Broadcast airs on WOFR.org – Word of Faith Internet Radio at 11:30 AM Eastern Time, Monday through Friday. WOFR.org – Word of Faith Radio is available at: www.wofr.org.

We have a convenient “WOFR.org – Word of Faith Media Player” available here on the wofm.org web site at the left-hand column of the page. Just click on the “WOFR.org – Word of Faith Radio” option. By using the “WOFR.org – Word of Faith Media Player” you may even listen behind your firewall at work. A lot of businesses block ports that prevent you from listening to Internet Radio at work, but our player sends the feed over port 80, the standard port for web traffic.

The Word of Faith Broadcast is also available to subscribe to with your RSS Reader, such as the Juice Receiver for Podcasts at our radio ministry RSS feed, which is: http://broadcast.wofm.org

How to Subscribe to our Ministry RSS Feeds

RSS (most commonly expanded as “Really Simple Syndication”) is a family of web feed formats used to publish frequently updated works—such as blog entries, news headlines, audio, and video—in a standardized format. In order to subscribe to an RSS feed or “newsfeed” you will need two things, an RSS reader (also known as a “news aggregator”) and a feed URL (Universal Resource Locator,) or web address, of the RSS feed that you wish to subscribe to.

1) Download (or use) a News Aggregator or RSS Reader, such as the free Feedly Site, or the application “Juice Receiver”

Feedly is available here: https://feedly.com/i/welcome

Juice Receiver is available here: http://juicereceiver.sourceforge.net/

2) Locate the web address (or URL) of the RSS feed (which is an XML, or “eXtensible Markup Language” file) that you wish to subscribe to.

A news aggregator or RSS reader is a software application that collects and displays news headlines and summaries from sources that you have located.

An RSS feed is an XML document that contains the news headlines and summaries.

3) Install the feed reader or news aggregator on the computer, if it is like the “Juice Receiver”, or navigate to your Feedly Account on their web site.

4) Insert the URL of the news feed (there is usually an “add feed” or “subscribe” button within the application.)

5) Many RSS news readers will allow you to set the interval that the software will look for a feed update, while others simply update daily.

6) The information in the feed will be updated when the feed contains new content.

e-Sword – The FREE Electronic Bible!

e-SwordYou have heard me talk about the “Electronic Bible” called “e-Sword” in many of my teaching sessions. I wanted to bring you an encouraging letter that is posted on the “e-Sword” web site from the creator of the software as to why he provides it free of charge to anyone, and everyone!

“‘Freely you received, freely give.’ (Matthew 10:8)

Jesus told us that since we’ve been blessed we should bless others. I am happy to provide a blessing to others in the form of free Bible study software!

As a Bible student and teacher I have experienced the necessary work involved in searching the Scriptures for the competent preparation of a Bible study, Sunday school lesson, or a sermon. There are volumes of books available as study tools (and the Christian community is indebted to the various authors’ perseverance and scholarship), but there is not enough time, money, or shelf space to properly take advantage of these resources. Computer software has changed the way we can study the Word of GOD. With a simple search or click of the mouse button, we now have access to these same volumes of scholarship within seconds!

e-Sword is a fast and effective way to study the Bible. e-Sword is feature rich and user friendly with more capabilities than you would expect in a free software package. The fact that e-Sword is free is just one of the blessings and does not speak of the quality of the software. I make my living writing software and I believe I have put forth my best effort in this endeavor. The real work, however, was put in by the godly men and women who devoted countless years creating the texts that have been made available for our benefit.

In His service,

Rick Meyers”

Bless you, Rick, for your service, and giving heart, to the Body of Christ! I trust that you and your family are abundantly blessed!
