A new inductive way to dig into Bible truth
Jesus and the Master(’s) Plan
2 TIMOTHY 1:9 Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,
1 PETER 1:18-22 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; 19But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: 20Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, 21Who by Him do believe in God, that raised Him up from the dead, and gave Him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.
JOHN 17:24 Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.

Isonomic Tape and
Many years ago I attended a series of meetings where Irene McCrary was one of the featured speakers. She bubbled over with the joy of her Bible discoveries and spent a whole week telling us about her experiences. Irene owned a small, fast food Mexican restaurant in Needles, California. At each meeting she described another of her wonderful menu items. I still remember the cheese chimichanga. She used every excuse she could to get our mouth watering over these delightfully cheesy gooey deep-fired burritos.
She told how she posted Bible verses all over her walls and windows and used every excuse she could to talk to customers so she could point them to a verse to fit their need. Her enthusiasm was inspiring; her stories entertaining. She loved to build a story up to a punchline, then declare, “Now for the isonomic tape!” and finish with a flare!
My husband and I puzzled over the "isonomic tape" for months. We didn’t have internet to look it up, and we were absolutely clueless. We sort of knew the definition was something like, “And now for the wonderful ending!” Well, we finally figured it out. Isonomic tape, at normal speed is actually, “Icing on the cake!”
The real icing on the whole week was the concept of using triplets. Irene tied three significant texts together making dozens of mini Bible Studies. She found the texts by plowing through the concordance and using her Bible cross references. Each set of triplets had one word in common, and, as a whole, taught a wonderful Bible truth.
