About the Book

People quote scriptures from the Bible, but oftentimes they leave out important words or phrases. This leads to misinterpretation or a misunderstanding of their meanings. God gave Gertrude Keasley insight into several scriptures that are often only partially quoted. She explored and delineated this revelation into her book, “According To …”, in which she aims to shed light on an often omitted phrase with the hopes that it will be a blessing to those who read it.

According to . . .


We cannot let our desires “run-a-muck.” It is imperative that our desires stay within the parameters of the Word of God. In order to do this, we must allow the reins of the Holy Spirit to draw them into the boundaries set by the Word! Then, and only then will “He give us the desires of our heart.”

God is our power source. In the Old Testament, God dealt with the Israelites differently. Some people saw him as powerful and unmerciful at times. But in the New Testament, Jesus (the Word) has been introduced into the equation. He is the “transformer” who harnesses, controls, breaks down the power into useable form.

This scripture does not apply to everyone. It applies to those who (a) love God and (b) are the called according to His purpose. The conjunction “and” connects two groups. Both of these conditions must be met in order for all things to work together for good.
