The Bible For Today Update

Yvonne Sanborn Waite, D. Hum.

November 2004


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

Dear friend of the BFT,

" Iíll GO WHERE YOU WANT ME TO GO, DEAR LORD! "

Are you sometimes at "sixes & sevens"? Iím not sure what that means, but I think it means that everything is upside down, confused, jumbled, and thereís too much to do. When we were first married, I looked forward to receiving mail. Did you? Hardly any mail came except a letter from my mother who faithfully wrote to us weekly, as well as, letters often from my husbandís mother. Then, there were the occasional bills, etc. Another anomaly was I had no rags! What was I supposed to use to clean with? Now we get so much mail that I have piles of it all over the house; and, we have so many rags, I could be a rag woman.

Now donít get me wrong--we love hearing from you; but, Iím talking about all those news sheets, magazines, and papers that we donít subscribe to. I feel duty-bound to read them--just in case there is something important. Often I see my husbandís name in them.

Yes, we need your financial support. Mostly that comes through the mail or via phone and credit card. Yes, we need you. WE NEED YOUR MAIL!! It is only by your caring for us that we can continue financiing our BIBLE FOR TODAY ministry. My husband is not one of those who asks for funds all the time. Thatís good. If there is something that is disturbing to me, it is to be dunned for money at every turn. Some churches never stop talking about their financial needs, and some Bible teachers and/or evangelists continually speak of it. They hawk their books ad nauseam. You know what I mean, Iím sure. Some of our friends, maybe you are one of them, support us every month--a faithful amount every month, $5, $10, $50, $100. It doesnít have to be much, just consistent. Do you know how nice that is for the ministry? We can count on that financial gift--we really can--just like the sun rising every morning. I say to my husband, "If only more people would care for THE BIBLE FOR TODAY like the faithful, monthly contributors, we could do so much more!"

THE WAITES INVITED TO SOUTH KOREA

NOVEMBER 8-15, 2004

PRAY, PRAY, PRAY

" OíER MOUNTAIN, OR PLAIN, OR SEA "

I want to keep this UPDATE as short as possible. My husband, Dr. Waite, and I are trying to get ready to fly to SOUTH KOREA on November 8th, Lord willing. Yes, it is a surprise! As I write this, I can hardly believe it myself. As soon as you read this, please begin to pray for us daily.

FOR MANY YEARS, DR. JUNG, ONE OF OUR CHURCHíS MISSIONARIES AND OUR KOREAN FRIEND, HAS WANTED DR. WAITE TO VISIT KOREA AND TEACH THEM ABOUT THE KING JAMES BIBLE. Others whom we know have gone there--like David Cloud of O Timothy magazine and Dr. Thomas Strouse, the dean of Emmanuel Baptist Seminary in Newington, CT. My husband was never "in the area" (ha!) to speak there. He does not have a fountain of funds for traveling expenses. Many countries want him to come and teach, but they canít afford to bring him. When Dr. Jung said that his SEOUL FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH, where he is Associate Pastor, was having their sixth anniversary and they wanted Dr. Waite to be their anniversary speaker, we said we would go. (Dr. Waite keeps none of the funds personally that come in for his books, tapes, videos, or writings. It all goes directly into the ministry. Some do. I donít blame them. People do have to eat, you

know. Evidently, we donít eat that much! (Ha!)

BIBLE FOR TODAY BAPTIST CHURCH ORDAINED DR. JUNG

Now we know the Jungs fairly well. Whenever they are in the area visiting her parents and children in Baltimore, they come to Collingswood to see us. To be perfectly honest, some years we saw them more than our own children. A few years ago, our BIBLE FOR TODAY BAPTIST CHURCH ordained Dr. Jung to the gospel ministry. I want to tell you more about our friendship and how our ministries care for each other--in fact, our church financially supports him as he continues to work on his study edition of the Korean King James Bible--but we have to wait until we return from serving the Lord over there. Everything has happened so fast, that I have not had time to get excited! Except I did get up early to write this UPDATE. (There are so many interruptions during the daytime.)

MRS. WAITE GOING IN PLACE OF A "LOVE OFFERING"

Please pray for us! (I know I said that once!) The SEOUL FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH is paying for our plane tickets. They said they would give a "love" offering or I could come--one or the other. My husband wanted me to be with him and Iíd like to go, also. So having me there is the "love offering." Weíve had to do many hurry-up-and-do-things like getting our hepatitis A shots and we are on the typhoid pill regimen. We take one pill every other day for four doses. We just made it in time to do these medical things. We have to go to the drug store and purchase an antibiotic in case we get a travelerís infection. None of this is covered by our insurance, as it is overseas--not even the doctorís visit of $85.00!! He was kind and only charged us for one patient. We also have to take care of some legal matters--all that--and my husband has to prepare for fourteen messages. He has already sent his 238 power-points over to Dr. Jung so he can translate them into Korean. Iíve been asked to speak to the ladies. They are going to decide on what. I hope I know the subject! Ha!

LESSON PLANS ALL PREPARED

MY HUSBAND WILL PRESENT A KING JAMES BIBLE SEMINARY. MY HUSBAND HAS HIS TEACHING PLANS ALL SET-UP! (Heís really a wonder!!) Heíll be teaching on Bible Preservation, the Superior Hebrew Text, the Superior Greek Text, the Superior Translation Technique, and the Superior Theology found in the King James Bible! WE WERE ONLY INVITED FOUR DAYS AGO! PLEASE PRAY!!

ONLY ONE CHANCE

CHILDREN LEARN BY EXAMPLE

"IíLL SAY WHAT YOU WANT ME TO SAY, DEAR LORD"

Lately Iíve been thinking a lot about examples--not arithmetic examples but the examples that children observe in adults. I canít tell you how many parents who have sacrificed for their children to have a Christian education fail that very child in their home. I know parents who wouldnít think of sending their child to a public school, yet they portray nothing but selfishness, laziness, lying, and worldliness in their homes. I know parents who are divorced now who sacrificed to send their sons and daughters to a Christian school. Iím thinking of a family whose children have gone to the dogs, so to speak; yet they were educated in a Christian school! O yes! The parents divorced each other, and married and divorced again--sometimes not stopping for a marriage license. Those children are now adults--perhaps even grandparents by now. They are lost in a sea of worldliness and despair. What good was all that "Christian" education? The failure was not in the school but in the home. It is the home where the Christian precepts and principles are learned. It is in the home that a child learns how to be a man or a woman. What kind of lessons are you teaching in your home?

TEACHING HOW TO COPE WITH LIFE

Parents are teachers. Whether we like it or not, we are teachers. We are teaching our daughters how to be women, how to be submissive wives, and loving mothers. We are teaching them how to be responsible sisters, wives, mothers, and grandmothers. We are teaching our sons how to be godly men--strong and bold--how to provide for the family, and protect it from harm. We are teaching them how to be leaders in their homes, how to provide financially, and how to love as Christ loved the Church and gave Himself for it. We are teaching our little ones how to cope with life, how to trust the LORD, and how to meet personal problems such as disappointments, betrayals, deaths, and duties.

Life is not all roses and sunshine. We must not pretend that it is. We must teach our children how to walk in the rain and live among the thorns of life. Letís face it! We only have one chance to instruct our daughters, as well as, other young women with whom we come in contact. We only have one chance to teach our sons to be manly and sexually faithful--only one chance to show them how to stand tall in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation. And, if we teach wrong, we cannot re-do it!

ONLY ONE CHANCE TO TEACH OBEDIENCE TO GOD

I had four sons and one daughter. I only had one chance, or opportunity, to show the way to be a Christian woman to my children. My husband had only once chance to exemplify manhood to our sons. We only had one chance to teach them to obey us so they would obey God. I only had one chance to show my daughter how a Christian woman should dress in this wicked world, only one chance, by example, to teach honesty and clean speech, proper grammar, as well as forgiveness and submission to my husband.

I only had one chance to teach her how to wash the dishes, make a bed, and sweep the floor--only one chance to show her my love for her father, and thus teach her how to be a godly wife. Only one chance to show her, by example, my love for her and the Word of God. Whether we like it or not, we are the main text book that our children see and read.

WALK A LITTLE PLAINER, DADDY

(Author unknown)

Walk a little plainer, Daddy, said a little boy so frail

Iím following in your footsteps, and I donít want to fail

Sometimes your steps are very plain, sometimes they are so hard to see

So walk a little plainer, Daddy, for you are leading me.

I know that once you walked this way many years ago

And what you did along the way Iíd really like to know

For sometimes when I am tempted, I donít know what to do

So walk a little plainer, Daddy, for I must follow you.

Someday when Iím grown up, you are like I want to be

Then I will have a little boy who will want to follow me

And I would want to lead him right and help him to be true

So walk a little plainer, Daddy, for we must follow you.

SOME OF OUR RECENT LETTERS

FROM A RETIRED PASTOR

"I finished COLOSSIANS & PHILEMON VERSE BY VERSE (BFT #2988BK @ $13.00 + $4.00 S&H) and now on the book of GALATIANS VERSE BY VERSE (BFT #2955BK @ $13.00 + $4.00 S&H). I want you to know how much I am enjoying the simple reading of your commentaries. Every Pastor would profit much by having them in his library. It is most refreshing to have you take up with a Greek word and explain it, rather, as most do, than use it to correct the text. I am glad also, having known you since 1979, for the little personal items that are included. (Such as your dog "GYPPIE" purchased by your dad for fifty cents when you were a boy.) I hope also that your books are in bookstores. I think that they are pregnant with valuable outlines via the Scripture you quote to establish the point you have just stated."

FROM RENO NEVADA

Concerning the topic, COUNTING CHRISTíS BLOOD UNHOLY (Cf. the book, BFT #2185 @ $5.00 + $3.00 S&H)

"Pastor Waite, could you go into more of the "other gospel" aspect of things? Remember, Jesus said that they would be teaching another gospel not taught by His true people. I believe that is what is fueling this horrendous act or "holy laughter" and the "Holy Ghost bartender," Benny Hin, and those like him. The demons in the pulpit need to be outed. For the sake of all who are searching for Jesus in these last days."

FROM WHITTIER, CALIFORNIA

"We sure enjoy watching all of you in our new streaming.  Almost feels as if we were there every time. Thank you so much. . ."

FROM E-MAIL

"I want to express my great gratitude to you for your tremendous and sacrificial labor on behalf of the Church of Jesus Christ. I have benefited greatly from reading your book DEFENDING THE KING JAMES BIBLE (BFT 1594P @ $12.00 +S&H) and have been doing my best to alert Godís people to this gravest issue. I am truly stunned at the apathy of so many, and more than a little startled at the remarkable ignorance of so many who, out of hand, dismiss this as an issue, despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary. I am convinced that far too many Christians simply do not know what is in their Bibles based on their uncaring attitude. There is something truly sobering about all this."

FROM THE UNITED KINGDOM

Speaking of MARRIAGE DEFRAUDING #1, a JUST FOR WOMEN radio tape:

JFW/07 @ $4.00 + $1.00 S&H or the entire series JFW/7-9 @ $9.00 + $2.00 S&H

"POWERFUL!!!!!!! Simply Potent. Enough said."

FROM SPRING ARBOR, MICHIGAN

COMMENTING ON THE TAPE: HOLES IN THE HOLMAN BIBLE #1

See tapes BFT/168-170 @ $9.00 or see the book, BFT #2966 @ $4.00 + $1.00 S&H

"Dr. Waiteís DECADES of detailed study marvelously deconstructs an incompetent paraphrase purporting to be translation. Fascinating to behold, in DETAILED point after point, DELETION of the original Greek by IGNORING the words they have even in their corrupt text, unwarranted ADDITION to the text, and speculative commentary introducing into and supplanting translation. This is a work purporting to be the very BEST of "translation." IF the "Hole-man" version were honest, and admitted to paraphrase, there would be little problem. And as Dr. Waite PROVES this work is riddled with "holes" as if a bookworm had eaten thru it." Youíve got to get this series of radio shows (1-3) and listen. It is RADIO TAPES #BFT/168-170 @ $9.00 + $3.00 S&H, and/or the booklet HOLES IN THE HOLMAN BIBLE BFT #2966 @ $4.00 + $2.00 S&H).

"Some of Waiteís BEST of MANY years of great radio shows exposing our Laodicean ageís failed experiment with "improving" Godís Word. "Hole-manís" version reminds one of the forged letter flap in current news: many are outraged that a fake was presented as fact: HOW MUCH MORE should WE be OUTRAGED that these types of FAKES are pushed on an unsuspecting public as being "the best" of current scholarship. Stick with the KJ BIBLE!"

FROM WASHINGTON STATE

Concerning an interest in a sermon-audio sermon,

BIBLE SEPARATION vs. COMPROMISE (BFT #1968/04 @ $4.00+$1.00 S&H)

"This message has given us biblical confirmation about separation and has encouraged us to stand firm. . . Thank you for the great message. What a blessing!"

WHOOPS--I FORGOT THE DBS WOMEN

DBS WOMEN GATHERED FOR FELLOWSHIP

MANY STAND FAITHFULLY WITH THEIR MEN

" IíLL BE WHAT YOU WANT ME TO BE "

The last time I wrote you, I told you all about the DEAN BURGON SOCIETYíS July 2004 meeting at Heritage University in Greenwood, Indiana. It was a good time of fellowship and instruction. BUT I forgot to mention our DEAN BURGON WOMENís meeting. We meet on Wednesday mornings every year while the Executive Committee men gather in another room. This year was a precious time. Mrs. Branine presided, Mrs. Carolyn Reno told of the writing contest she and her husband have sponsored for many years. If you have a teen- ager who is interested in entering this contest, write or call me. The essays are on subjects pertaining to the defense of the King James Bible and its underlying texts. Barbara Guerrant, a missionary with her husband for thirty-nine years to Papua New Guinea, gave a testimony. Mrs. Russell Dennis, Jr., the University presidentís wife, prayed, as well as Mrs. Donna Barnett who brought Mrs. Jane Hollowoodís needs before the Throne of God. (Remember I told you that her husband died this past summer. (See the September/ October BFT UPDATE.) As an aside: Mrs Barnettís husband, PASTOR ROBERT BARNETT from Grayling, Michigan, had a serious motorcycle accident a few weeks ago. It is only by the grace of God that he was not killed.

MRS. WILLIAMS SPOKE OF A SYMPHONY OF PRAISE

Mrs. H. D. Williams gave a beautiful devotional on GODíS WORD IS A SYMPHONY OF PRAISE (BFT #3201/PW @ $4.00 + $1.00 S&H). She told how sheíd heard Brahms Symphony No 2 performed recently by the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. She said, "I did not realize at that time how God would use that experience to give me a deeper understanding of His precious Word." PATRICIA WILLIAMSí DEVOTIONAL TEACHINGS HAVE BEEN A BLESSING TO US. Her talk is in writing, also. Ask for it, sending a gift; or, better still, order THE DBS WRITTEN MESSAGES FROM THE 26TH ANNUAL MEETING (BFT # 3200-P @ $20.00 (204 large pages) + $4.00 S&H). MANY OF THE 2004 MESSAGES ARE IN THAT BOOK. It would be worth your reading time!

THE POLITICAL & RELIGIOUS CLIMATE THAT JUMP-STARTED THE KJB

I gave a review of part of the book, GODíS SECRETARIES, THE MAKING OF THE KING JAMES BIBLE. It was written by Adam Nicolson. I saw him once on C-Span and became interested in his work. A friend sent us the book last summer--so I had no excuse not to read and review it. I called my talk THE POLITICAL & RELIGIOUS CLIMATE THAT JUMP-STARTED THE KING JAMES BIBLE. This talk is on video as well as Mrs. Williamsí speech, (BFT #3201 @ $15.00 + $5.00 S&H), as well as mine on audio, too (BFT #3201/YSW @ $4.00 + $1.00 S&H). We are on the same video.

My talk is in writing, too, (BFT#3194 @$4.00 + $2.00 S&H), or in the DBS MESSAGE BOOK FROM THE 26TH ANNUAL MEETING/2004 (BFT #3200-P @ $20.00 + $5.00 S&H).

I learned much by reading this book--the behind the scenes excitement that brought about the King James Bible. I wrote the following:

"One of the things that I liked about this book is that the King James Bible TRANSLATORS were not made out to be "holy men of God...moved by the Holy Ghost," as the writers of Scripture were. The author availed himself of the few notes remaining concerning the TRANSLATORS, as well as the translation process itself. Sad to say, most of recorded information on the subject had been burned in a horrific London Fire. Mr. Nicolson did not belittle the TRANSLATORS or build them up with lofty praise. He just reported his findings.

"I was impressed how the TRANSLATORS would shut their eyes and listen to the sound of the words as they fell upon their ears. The rhythm had to be right. Their new version had to "sound" like God was speaking. Such a desire on their part, forced the TRANSLATORS to reach back into a spoken English, long forsaken by the man-on-the street of their day.

"Did you know that it was not the English that men spoke in 1611 either? We in our century have the King James Bible TRANSLATORS to thank for funneling proper English into the hearts and minds of all who have the language of learning that it is in the world today. "AS I READ ABOUT THEIR LIVES, I SAW THAT THE MEN WHO TRANSLATED THE KING JAMES BIBLE WERE JUST THAT: TRANSLATORS."

LIVING WITH BRITTLE DIABETES

A SMALL BOOK BY WENDY KOCIK

BFT #3193 @ $3.00 + $1.00 S&H

Do you know someone who suffers from diabetes? Let Wendyís testimony help you in your fears and struggles with the disease. She wrote :

"A brittle uncontrolled diabetic is someone who exhibits frequent, rapid swings in glucose requirements without apparent cause and has a pattern of plasma glucose control that fluctuates erratically between marked hyperglycemia and frequent episodes of symptomatic hypoglycemia."

Read Wendyís story. Feel her fears. See her trust in the Lord Jesus Christ during her struggles between life and death. She wrote:

"In July of 1990, Rick and I went to Sturgis, South Dakota for the 50th Harley-Davidson rally. We were there for two weeks. I was having very high blood sugars. I didnít understand why, so I called my doctor. He told me to take two of the pills to bring my blood sugars down, but that wasnít working. This was the end of the "honeymoon," as I was told. When I returned home I went to see my doctor. I had to start insulin again. I have been on insulin ever since. . . . I did not care what was going on in my life at this point. I was living for myself and for my own pleasures. . ."

Later she became a Christian. She wrote:

"I just want to say again, living with brittle diabetes is difficult; but it can be done with the Lord. My faith in Christ has made living with brittle diabetes possible for me. . . . I am new in Christ! Praise to God for my salvation! It doesnít mean that I donít get down, but it is the Lord Jesus Christ who brings me back up, and the Scripture that the Lord lays on my heart to instruct and comfort me."

GET THE BOOK!

IN CLOSING, I WOULD LIKE TO ENCOURAGE YOU TO HEAR OUR RADIO PROGRAMS ON SHORT WAVE. WEíVE HEARD FROM SOME OF OUR LISTENERS AND IT IS A THRILL! WRITE US FOR THE SHORT WAVE TIMES AND STATIONS.

In Godís Care,

Yvonne S. Waite (1 Peter 1:7-8)
