THESE ARE PERILOUS TIMES!
CHRISTIANS MUST BE VIGILANT

Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner;
But be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God.

2 TIMOTHY 1:8

24-HOUR STREAMING: www.BFTBC.ORG

Dear friends of the BFT,

TWO SPRINGS IN ONE YEAR

Even though it has been downright windy and cold in South Jersey lately, according to the calendar, spring had sprung! Itís the truth! The forsythia waved their golden arms every time I glanced in their direction, and the daffodils bowed in yellow glory each time I walked their path. Spring is an amazing season. It is a time of new beginnings, of freshness, of green grass, of pastel beauty & grandeur, and the birth of a second Waite great grand child! For my husband and me, Spring came twice this year!

MARCH MEETINGS IN GRANITE FALLS, WASHINGTON

You see, Dr. Waite and I were in GRANITE FALLS, WASHINGTON STATE from MARCH 15-19, 2004, with PASTOR AND MRS. MARK HAMMOND at the GRANITE FALLS BIBLE BAPTIST CHURCH on 509 South Granite Avenue. I was delightfully surprised to see SPRING before our eyes. You see, it seemed to be still winter in cold New Jersey. It was there in March, 2004, in Washington State, that the forsythia danced first for us under that blue Western sky. BUT that wasnít all! There were scores and scores of flowering plum trees displaying pink blossoms for our amazement The pansies smiled in their friendly clusters, and the daffodils proudly gathered in clumps waiting for the friendly tulips to pop out in colorful array. Even though it was a bit chilly & misty, I couldnít get over the beauty! Each day, as we drove from our Best Western motel in Tulalip to tiny Granite Falls in Snohomish County, we gloried in the splash of fushia/pink trees lining our roadway. What a privilege to be in Washington State again!

GRANITE FALLS IS A SMALL TOWN. It covers a land area of 1.7 miles and has a population of 2,347. Pastor Hammond has a burden for the souls of its citizens whose average age is thirty. To purchase a house in GRANITE FALLS, be prepared to invest $152,100 for a small dwelling. We were told personally that GRANITE FALLS IS THE LEADING MANUFACTURER OF CRYSTAL METHADONE in the area, if not in the country. So, behind many doors of that tiny town and up on the hills & mountains are substances which are made, coveted, and purchased by those in and about Granite Falls who are into the drug scene. Yes, that peaceful village has an underbelly of sin. BUT IS GRANITE FALLS ANY DIFFERENT FROM OTHER CITIES AND TOWNS WHERE YOU AND I LIVE?

THE TUG OF GOD

When Pastor Hammond felt the tug of God upon his heart to be "full time," he quit his employment as a manager of a paint store, and took a brush in hand. INSTEAD OF SELLING PAINT, HE BEGAN TO PAINT. This was his "TENT MAKING" job in order to support his family of a wife and four children. They set up housekeeping in a small house on the corner of a busy street. When he is not canvassing the town with tracts and doorknob messages, preaching, or painting, he is remodeling his home. When we were there the project was to enlarge the pantry.

Dr. Waite & I enjoyed two meals in the Hammond home, got acquainted with the children, saw their home school room (for the older son and daughter), and played with the little ones (two foster children soon to be adopted) who were under two years of age. What a job! I must say I have not seen anywhere any better behaved toddlers.

Pastor Hammond had been a foster child himself as a teenager. Such an experience, along with other happenings in his life, had given him a tender heart for such children. In fact, the pastor told us of his boyhood, which I wonít go into it here with you, as it is very private; but he told us something very incisive. When he and his wife had their first birth-child, he said to her that even though his mother had married two men who were his "fathers," he had never had a good "father" example--, so he did not know how to be a father. But one thing he did know was he did not want to be like the men in his life who had wronged him. "Tell me," he said to his wife, "If I am doing something wrong."

DR. WAITE TEACHES THE SUPERIORITY OF THE KJB

My husband preached five week-nights at GRANITE FALLS BIBLE CHURCH. The congregation meets in a rented, defunct Seventh Day Adventist church building. It is a dear building with pews, and carpet, an organ, a piano, as well as a pulpit, etc--but NO piano player. There are two large service rooms and a nursery--plenty of room for a fledgling congregation. The people who attended were interested in the textual subject. My husband used his power-point projector and computer with skill, teaching the textual truth concerning the King James Bibleís superiority in its text, translation, technique, and theology. I wish you could have been there, but the tapes are the next best thing. Do you know which point of the four "SUPERIORITIES" really hits home? Youíre right--It is the THEOLOGY.

ORDER TODAY THE FIVE GRANITE FALLS AUDIO CASSETTE MESSAGES ON THE FOUR SUPERIORITIES OF THE KING JAMES BIBLE today (BFT #3179/1-3 @ $9.00+ $2.00 S&H).

A QUOTE FROM DEFENDING THE KJB ON THEOLOGY

LET ME QUOTE CONCERNING "DOCTRINAL ERROR" WRITTEN ABOUT IN THE BOOK DEFENDING THE KING JAMES BIBLE by D. A. WAITE. HERE IS ONE OF THE 158 VERSES QUOTED WHERE THERE ARE DOCTRINAL CHANGES FOUND IN OTHER VERSIONS (BFT #1594-P @ $12.00 + $3.00 S&H).

"I John 4:3: Ďand every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that [spirit] of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.í

The italicized portion is ELIMINATED in the Critical Greek text and English versions based upon it. Leaving out Ď"Christ is come in the fleshí is a denial of His incarnation. This is certainly a matter of doctrine and theology. At this point, this Greek text and these English versions are theologically deficient, whereas the Textus Receptus and the KING JAMES BIBLE are theologically superior." (PAGE 159-16O)

CHURCH PLANTING AT AGE SEVENTY-THREE

Because I came to Washington state with a cough, I did not go with my husband on Sunday morning to FAITH BAPTIST CHURCH in EVERETT, WASHINGTON. I thought Iíd rest to adjust to the time change. There is a three-hour difference. PASTOR DON COLLINS HAD STARTED A BABY CHURCH IN A CHRISTIAN SCHOOL FACILITY THERE. Dr. Waite spoke on DEFENDING THE KING JAMES BIBLE but forgot to turn his tape recorder on; so I canít offer it to you. Afterwards, the two pastors (my husband and Pastor "C") came to the motel there in Tulalip so I could eat Sunday dinner with them and some of the church members in a restaurant. This gathering was interesting to me for several reasons. PASTOR COLLINS is a seasoned HOME MISSIONARY. In his early years of church planting, he told us that he was supported by TABERNACLE BAPTIST CHURCH IN GREENVILLE, SOUTH CAROLINA, when the late HAROLD SIGHTLER was the pastor. Our ears pricked up for both my husband and I have radio programs on that churchís radio station. We appreciated the church, the pastor, and the station very much. You, too, can hear us on www.tabernacleministries.org several times a week.

WHY DO SEASONED PASTORS RETIRE?

ANOTHER INTERESTING FACT ABOUT PASTOR COLLINS IS HE IS SEVENTY-THREE AND STARTING A CHURCH! Sometimes Christians want to put "elders" out to pasture and think they should be home in their rocking chair or walking the Florida beaches early in the morning instead of ministering the Word of God in their corner of the world. Iím afraid many Christians have pigeonholed mature ministers as "retired" or just "pulpit suppliers" or "just for special meetings" instead of viewing them as available, resident pastors. Sometimes I fear this is the "retired" pastorís fault! I agree, the ministry can be very tiring. Itís not so much because of the preaching but because of some of the people as well. Excuse my frankness. Church people become obsessed with instructing the pastor how to act, speak, dress, sing, etc. And, if they canít find a problem with the pastor, theyíll turn on his wife and grind her into mince meat. All of this wears down a pastor/man. No wonder, he looks forward to early retirement or wants to teach in a Christian college where he can tell other men how to be pastors and escape the tread mill.

WHAT DOES "ELDER" MEAN?

In the Bible, "pastors" are also called "bishops" and "elders." Iím coming to feel that "elder" means exactly what it says--"ELDER." Now, Iím not trying to put down young preachers. My husband was once a young pastor. After all--Timothy in the New Testament was a "young" pastor. But wasnítí he in his forties? I remember a sermon years ago that estimated that Timothy was about forty. I donít know how that preacher knew, but it sounded good to me. Without young men, weíd have no "purpose driven churches" no "Rick Warrens," no "worship leaders," or no church "rock bands." I say that with "tongue in cheek"! But as Iíve matured, Iíve watched some wonderful young pastors hit the dust--out of the ministry, divorced, depressed, or hopelessly discouraged, Iím wondering if it is because of their youth. Youth has much going for it but it has much to learn. But then, we oldsters have much to learn also.

HOW DID THE APOSTLE PAUL MINISTER?

I wish I had the strength I used to have. If I did, Iíd be out putting literature into every house in Collingswood. But I donít have the strength or endurance. Yet, maybe it isnít necessary to put literature in every house in your town or my town. Did the Apostle Paul do that? Iím not against it. In fact Iím for it. Iím just pondering. Could it be that we are rushing our young men into the pulpit before they have had a chance to mature spiritually? before they know what raising children is all about? before they know how to lead as husbands and not drive their wives out of the home with demands? Iím just asking. Could it be also that we are pushing good, experienced, "elder" preachers out of our churchesí pulpits because we want the latest thing on the platform--the latest church-growth methods, the latest look in dress, the latest Christian jargon--and a huge attendance to bring in a huge offering to cover the huge church budget? I really donít know the answer to all of this--just wondering. How do you feel?

DR. WAITE AT EVERGREEN BAPTIST CHURCH

That Sunday evening in Washington state, I did go with my husband when he presented the SUPERIORITY OF THE KING JAMES BIBLE to the EVERGREEN BAPTIST CHURCH (BFT #3180 @ $4.00 + $1.00 S&H). The church is situated in a unique building which is connected to the rear of a super market. I forget the name of that market--sorry. I have never seen such an arrangement before. Indeed when I entered the building, it looked like a church and not like it was housed in the back end of a super market. The music was good. One reason was the pianist. She was the pastorís wife and very talented at the piano. The church was pastored by Rev. Gary Jayne. After the service the Jaynes and their teen children took us to a Thai restaurant. In fact, the owners stayed open longer than usual just to have us be there. It was good! He, his family, and his people were very friendly.

GOOD BOOK TABLE RESPONSE

They showed a keen interest in the book table. In fact, all three churches we were in purchased books. We like this for two reasons. One is the proceeds from the books go directly into the Bible For Today ministry. We do no keep a penny of it.

THANKS FOR HELPING THE BFT MINISTRIES

WE ALWAYS HAVE A FINANCIAL NEED

OUR BIBLE FOR TODAY MINISTRIES ALWAYS NEEDS FUNDS TO PAY OUR STAFF AND PRINT BOOKS, ETC. That is why we appreciate you so much for you have contributed to our work. Thank you. Another reason is a good book table response means the people are interested in the subject. Several people purchased THE DEFINED KING JAMES BIBLE while there. Do you have a copy? (BFT #3000 @ $40.00 LARGE LEATHER; $35.00 MEDIUM LEATHER; $20 LARGE HARDBACK; $15 MEDIUM HARDBACK + $6.00 S&H each). WE ARE EXPECTING ANOTHER SHIPMENT OF MEDIUM LEATHER and HARDBACK DEFINED KING JAMES BIBLES IN MAY.

THE TULALIP TRIBES

Are you curious about Tulalip? Our motel was on the TULALIP INDIAN GROUNDS. The concessions, motels, restaurants, fast food places, all rent the land from the Tulalip Tribes. THEN THE BUSINESS PEOPLE BUILD ON THAT LAND.

` We had an interesting talk with one of the native American girls at Arbyís. She was a customer like we were--all excited because she was "with child." (Not married, of course.) Somehow now-a-days, not to be married to the father of the baby is in style. It seems like I know more unmarried mothers than married ones. I often ask, "Are you going to marry the father." And usually the answer is, "Weíre thinking about it." OR "When we can afford it."

The tribeís business enterprises are casino/bingo, land leasing, and cablevision. The TULALIP RESERVATION is in the mid-Puget Sound area, near the city of MARYSVILLE, Washington, the Snohomish River, and Puget Sound, having a land base of 22,000 acres, over 50% of which is in Federal Trust Status. It was established by the Point Elliott Treaty of January 22, 1855 and enlarged by executive order of December 23, 1873. It provides a permanent home for the SNOHOMISH, SNOQUALMIE, SKAGIT, SUIATTLE, SAMISH, and STILLAGUAMISH tribes and allied bands living in the region.

THE "DOCTORED" NEW TESTAMENT

If you have not seen THE "DOCTORED" NEW TESTAMENT, youíve really missed an excellent work which was researched and written by our oldest son, who authored the DEFINED KING JAMES BIBLE footnotes. Youíve heard of Scrivenersí Annotated Greek New Testament (BFT #1670 @ $35.00 Hardback; $45.00 Leather + $4.00 S&H) with the footnotes from the actual WESTCOTT/HORT Greek text. D. A. Waite, Jr. has put the English Bible where the Greek was and he has transcribed the footnotes showing us how and when and where the critical text changes the Greek Words. I like to take this New Testament to church with me and see how the Doctors Westcott and Hort changed things. I like to do my daily devotions with this new work to help me understand what a good Bible is our Authorized Version. ASK FOR The The DOCTORED New Testament (#BFT3138 @ $25.00 + $4.00 S&H.)

"But this New Testament was Ďdoctoredí in another, more significant way. Previous revisions of the traditional English New Testament primarily focused on improving the English text and not on changing its Greek Basis. But with the 1881 English Revised Version, a new wind began to blow. Doctors Westcott and Hort (together with the majority of the Revisions Committee) made thousands of New Testament changes based on their new Greek Testament. This new Greek Testament had been significantly Ďdoctoredí with thousands of Ďvarious readingsí from their two favorite Greek manuscripts --Codex Vaticanus (B) and Codex Sinaiticus (Aleph)." (page iii of the Preface).

An Interesting Footnote

It is interesting to notice that the footnote at the bottom of page iii of the Preface to THE DOCTORED NEW TESTAMENT reads: "These change were made over the repeated objections of Dr. Scrivener."

"COME OVER FOR LUNCH"

AFTER WE GOT SITUATED IN OUR MOTEL ON MONDAY, I REMEMBERED SOME FRIENDS THAT WE KNEW IN WASHINGTON STATE. So, I called home to the BFT office and asked Pastor Dan Waite to look up some phone numbers for me. Then I called three people, hoping we could get together and visit--that is if we were anywhere near them. I had no idea where they lived, how far they were from Marysville, or where I was for that matter. (I just get on the plane and go with my husband.) Come to find out, two of the women were from the same city--BELLINGHAM; and each said, "Come over for lunch!"

THE PASSION OF CHRIST MOVIE DISCUSSED

Because it really gets boring for me in the motel (I didnít bring any work this time), I persuaded my husband to go about 45 minutes to one hour away to see these friends. (It was so good of our host to rent us a van.) Our friends invited us to lunch--which turned out to be a beautiful dinner. We knew these people from Hawaii. Donít have time to go into it now; but weíve kept in touch once a year or so ever since. Diane, the wife & mother, homeschools her three children--two girls and a boy. (One is a teen.) They have a beautiful home which is in a neighborhood where the street ascends a mountain. It is startlingly lovely. (You may remember Mt. Reiner is somewhere around there--perhaps closer to Seattle.). Doug, the husband and father, has his office upstairs. So when he came down for lunch, guess what he wanted to talk about? THE PASSION OF CHRIST movie. Iíd just done a "JUST FOR WOMEN" tape on it (JFW #49 @ $4.00 +S&H). The second side is on the movie. Also, my husband has been giving hand-outs to our church from various sources pointing out some of the errors and pitfalls to the movie, etc.

JAMES CAVIEZEL IS NOT JESUS

Our hosts had purchased tickets for THE PASSION, intending to attend as a family. But, as they thought about it, they had no liberty to do so. Now, I know that hundreds of real Christians have gone to that movie. Yet, I am not sure they understand or detect the unscriptural aspects of the production. One of our friends objects to the whole thing because we are not supposed to have an "image" of God and James Caviezel "becomes" Jesus. I read in some super market magazine that I looked at while waiting in line, that Caviezel, a devout Catholic who took the Eucharist every day in order to do this film, attended some Catholic function. I think he was the speaker at a dinner--maybe it was a lunch. People came up to him just to touch him or hold his hand or hug him. It was as if they were in awe of his "holiness." He is not Jesus!

EVERYONE IS TALKING ABOUT THE MOVIE

Everywhere we went on that trip to Washington state, people were talking about that movie. A couple in the church at Granite Falls saw it three times. She was impressed and told me that Billy Graham thought it was wonderful. (I thought he was home in North Carolina recovering from hip surgery.) A blind man at the Philadelphia airport, who was Catholic, was told by his Catholic friends it was wonderful because Jesusí mother, Mary, had such a prominent part. Yet, when I told a Protestant Christian friend that my source, who saw the movie, said the Mary was THE STAR she said, "I didní t see that!"

A PURIFYING HOPE

One thing that amazes me is I thought good, solid, born-again Christians who loved the Lord Jesus Christ with all their hearts did not go to Hollywood movies! It used to be called "personal separation." Have you ever heard of that? When I was a new Christian and a teenager in love with the Lord, we would ask ourselves, "Do I want to be in the movie house when the Lord returns?" The second coming of Jesus Christ used to be the purifying hope that kept Christians on the Straight and Narrow. I guess the Straight & Narrow has some kinks in it now-a-days!!

HOMOSEXUALITY, WINE, & INCEST

Talking about "the Straight & Narrow," I donít think I told you about another "JUST FOR WOMAN" TAPE called "HOMOSEXUALITY, WINE, & INCEST" (JFW #48 @$4.00+ S+H) This is part of the series on the life of Sarah. It takes in her nephew Lotís sins with his daughters that included wine drinking and incest. What a shame he must have been to his Uncle Abraham. But Abraham loved Lot and pleaded with God for him. Isnít that the way with all of us? We may not love the sin of our loved one but we love them as people desperately. In that tape (JFW #48), I read from the FRONTLINE magazine that tells of Preacher & FBFI leader Rod Bellís drinking problem forcing him out of the ministry. His doctor told him to drink wine to help him sleep--of all things! So that was done for seven years. The preacher was out driving instead of sleeping much of the time. This goes to show that one never knows if one is an alcoholic until one takes that first drink. Same way--one never knows if one is an adulterer or an adulteress, until one gives that first kiss.

A VISIT WITH AN OLD FRIEND

After our good visit with Doug, Diane & family, we drove to the heart of Bellingham to LOGOS RESEARCH SYSTEMS at 1313 Commercial ST., Bellingham, WA 98225-4372 (www.logos.com). To be very honest with you, when I called up my friend, Jenny Pritchett, I wanted to see her. I forgot all about Logos and that fabulous company their son, Bob, established years ago. I just wanted to see my friend. Jenny and I used to teach girls at Cherry Hillís Bethel Baptist Church about twenty-five years ago. She had the senior girls and I had the 10 & 11th grade girls. Because we taught the same lesson, it was always delightful to talk about our lessons together. I never had this experience before in all my church-going. The fellowship was sweet. So when I think of Jenny, I think of her enthusiasm for the Lord and Godís Words, as well as good books--not this wonderful computer-program company that has put her in charge of packaging and shipping.

A PEEK AT LOGOS RESEARCH SYSTEMS

Jennyís husband is Dale Pritchett. He, along with son Dan Pritchett, is in charge of marketing. The oldest son, Bob Pritchett, is the brains and president of the company. He was in New York state the day we were there. They are doing a great job! I wish that I could explain this company to you but I just donít have the vocabulary. The building is big with high ceilings and many rooms filled with workers. Some of the workers are programing, others are helping people who phone with computer problems, others are billing, others are receiving, others are promoting. In the beginning Logos put the King James Bible on programs along with other versions like the NASV, NIV, NKJV, and others. My husband uses the Logos Bible system all the time. Now the company puts books, and commentaries, and anything on the computer to aid the Bible student. I wish I could explain it, but I just canít. All I can say is that I WAS IMPRESSED! We were only with Dale and Jenny for one hour. I am so glad we went!

A LEGALLY BLIND FRIEND NOW SEES

I did have two disappointments. I called Marilyn, whose husband is a pastor in Kent, Washington. I had no idea where Kent was--except that it was near Seattle; and we were near Seattle. Found out later--it was about seventeen miles from Tulalip/ Marysville, where we were staying at the Best Western. There was no "come on to my house" invitation, but we had a good telephone talk. I did find out some good news. Previously she was legally blind from Graves disease. So it was a surprise and delight to hear that she can see again. What did she do? She went to a naturopathic doctor, paid for it herself because no insurance would touch it. She followed the plan. NOW SHE CAN SEE! Praise the LORD!

DISAPPOINTED FRIENDS--THEY AND US

Another BIG disappointment was that dear friends of ours and the BIBLE FOR TODAY came to see us on the very Wednesday we took off for Bellingham. Weeks before, I had called them from New Jersey telling them we would be in their state. THEY LIVED THREE HOURS AWAY FROM GRANITE FALLS. THEY WANTED TO SEE US AND WE WANTED TO SEE THEM. They got up at 3:30 A.M., to do some business in Everett, and then drove over to the church where my husband preached every evening. THEY ARRIVED AT 11:30 A.M. Only we were not there! We could have gone to Bellingham any other day of the week if we had only known they were coming. How disappointed they were. HOW BAD WE FELT THAT WE HAD MISSED THEM!! Our disappointed friends had called the CHURCH ANSWERING MACHINE the night before and told the CHURCHíS ANSWERING MACHINE they would be in town the next morning. ONLY NO ONE LISTENED TO THE CHURCH ANSWERING MACHINE! SO OUR FRIENDS WENT HOME--ALL THOSE MILES WITHOUT SEEING US AND WITH A BAD IMPRESSION OF GRANITE FALLS.

A survey done by Barna Research Group in December 2003 found that it is very difficult to get in touch with churches. They called 3,400 Protestant churches five different times over a two-week period during normal business hours, making sure that the calls were made at various times of the day. A human being could not be reached at 55% of the churches. In 20% of the cases, the phone went unanswered by either a person or an answering machine in each of the five separate attempts. (Worthy News, January 27)

GOODBYE TO GRANITE FALLS & GOOD MEMORIES

But we did have a good time of service for the Lord in Granite Falls. The Adams family welcomed us into their home Wednesday evening with a delicious ham dinner. It was St Patrickís day and our hostess was Irish. She celebrated with an appetizing pale green soup. I wish you could have had some, too. Our memories of the fellowship with Pastor and Mrs. Hammond and their people are sweet. Maybe weíll see them again soon. Who knows?

THE SUBJECT OF "LYING" AGAIN

Now back to the subject of LYING that I talked about in my last BFT UPDATE. I canít tell you when Iíve had such response. Some asked me, "Are you talking about me, Mrs. Waite?" Some wrote letters, and others said, "I better do what I said I would do or Mrs. Waite will say I am lying!" It has made me examine my own words and life also. How about you? Then nationally, we have had MARTHA STEWART found guilty of lying. In nearby Philadelphia, a mother discovered her missing child after five or six years. Come to find out, a relative had stolen the little girl as a new-born child, then set the row-house on fire to cover up her crime. The firemen said the child had perished in the flame. All of this was lies. I talk about the subject of LYING on the tape of my radio program called "Lying & The ĎPASSION MOVIEí" (JFW/49 @ $4.00 + S&H). WHY DID ABRAHAM & SARAH LIE TO ABIMELECH (GENESIS 20)?

A JAZZ BAND IN A BIBLE-BELIEVING CHURCH

BEFORE WE FLEW TO WASHINGTON STATE, we had a Sunday night meeting in a church in South Jersey. We really like the pastor there and know many of the people personally. MY HUSBAND DID A MASTERFUL JOB OF EXPLAINING WHY THE KING JAMES BIBLE IS THE BIBLE FOR TODAY (BFT#3177 @ $4.00 + $1.00 S&H). But I have to mention my disappointment in their congregational singing. Now---mind you, they sang conventional songs like "Blessed Be the Name" and "What a Friend We Have in Jesus." Yet, all of this singing was to a jazz band, led by the beat of a dance-hall-organ, and a bar-room piano rinkey-dink touch. My husband is a saxophone player. He has a beautiful tone. As a unsaved youth, he had a jazz band; but since he received the Lord Jesus Christ as his Saviour, his saxophone playing was redeemed also.

If my husband had not been the speaker, I would have walked out of the building. I do not think "making a joyful noise" means a dance beat. Could that have been the sound Moses heard as he descended the Mount of God? No wonder he dropped the Ten Commandments!

"WHOOPS! I FORGOT MY COMPUTER!"

Last night my husband spoke at FREEDOM BAPTIST CHURCH, Route 352 & Knowlton Road in Media, Pennsylvania 19063. PASTOR CHRIS KEAY (610-447-1527) is an energetic pastor with a heart for souls in his area. This is an interesting church. It meets in the lower level of a dentistry building. They rent the complete downstairs area for $1,800 a month which seems like a lot to me, but Pastor Keay felt it a good price considering what the dentist asked for it in the beginning. He had to fight the township in order to have religious services there by going to court and using a special Law that protects churches against zoning abuse. The name of the law is "RELIGIOUS LAND USE AND INSTITUTIONALIZED PERSONíS ACT OF 2000." They won their case in the federal court in Philadelphia. I admire his stance for freedom of religion! There may come a time when we all will have to exercise our legal rights in order to meet around the Word of God together. My husband spoke on THE TRUE HISTORY OF THE TEXTUS RECEPTUS (BFT#3181 @ $4.00 + $1.00 S&H).

We got to the church early in order to set up Dr. Waiteís power-point presentation. Alas! He forgot his computer! The brains of the whole presentation was back in Collingswood. Fortunately my husband knows his subject and he gave an excellent lecture without that fancy invention. It was like old times. We enjoyed the fellowship with the Keay family and friends at Freedom. In fact, one of the men there has a brother who is pastoring a church near to us here in New Jersey. A small world!

Before I leave talking about that church, I must mention that on a neighboring property stands a large building in which a Jewish congregation meets. It is sad because years ago, that building was a thriving Bible-preaching church. I do not know why the demise of that evangelistic fortress! Pastor Keay knocks on doors in the area leaving literature and a witness. Often he finds people who used to go to that dissolved church. They say they are saved but they attend nowhere. One time, he met the son of the former pastor of that defunct church. The son appeared to be indifferent to the very gospel his father had proclaimed. A sad commentary on Christian living! It makes me appreciate our own children who walk with the Lord!

Now We Have DVDís For You

THE BOOK OF REVELATION IN PROGRESS

This series of Bible teaching in the book of Revelation by Pastor D. A. Waite will cover a period of forty-four weeks. It has been a blessing so far. As of this writing, we are in CHAPTER NINE. Each DVD covers four sermons and we ask you for a gift of $15.00 + $2.00 S&H. Call our office (1-800-JOHN-10:9) or 1-856-854-4452 and ask how you can get the whole REVELATION series. In addition to DVDís, we offer the REVELATION STUDY on audio cassette & video cassettes. As time permits, DAN is putting Pastor Waiteís former messages on DVD also. FEEL FREE TO ORDER ANY OF THE DR. WAITEíS MESSAGES ON DVDís. He covers, verse by verse, all of the books from Romans through Revelation. They are a real blessing. I know your hearts would be nourished in the Word. We also have all the messages on audio tape. Each side of the audio cassette has two sermons on one chapter. We ask a gift of $4.00 +$1.00 for shipping and handling. CALL OUR OFFICE FOR DETAILS!

A Letter or Two

"Iíve written you in the past thanking you for your broadcast on SermonAudio.com and for your DEFINED KING JAMES BIBLE. Well, Iíd like to thank you again and this time for your LIVE BROADCASTS on your BFTBC.ORG website . . . ."

"Thank you again for posting the two hour radio sermons on the KJB on SermonAudio.com. I should get college credits for listening to them. My son loves his DEFINED KING JAMES BIBLE. He is seven. . ."

"I signed your guest book back in January. We absolutely love your sermons on SermonAudio.com. I wish we lived closer so that we could attend your church. Praise God for pastors out there who preach the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ without compromise!"

"Just to let you know that I received THE REVISION REVISED (BFT #611 @ $25.00 + $4.00 S&H) today. Thank you for your excellent service. You may have spotted that I live in Chichester, England where Rev. Burgon was Dean. Yet I was unable to find a copy anywhere. I donít suppose any of the clergy have actually read it. I guess there could be a copy tucked away in the cathedralís vaults somewhere! I have always loved the AV and I think that the Deanís book will provide me with sound reason for that affection.. . ."

"Thank you for staying in touch all these years. We will always be grateful to God for Chaplain Waite in our Navy years at Corpus Christi. The priceless gift of salvation and the years since would never have been, probably had the Lord not led us to Chaplain D. A. Waite, Vonnie, & the family, too."

So Good To Visit With You Again, We Appreciate Your Friendship.

In Godís Care,

Yvonne S. Waite
