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

OUR DEAR BIBLE FOR TODAY FRIENDS
OBVIOUSLY IT IS DECEMBER. THAT MEANS 2005 IS ALMOST
OVER. It means life has gone on as we know it for one more year. The
longer I live the more I realize that I am not in charge of my years at
all. Not that I ever thought I was; but sometimes I pretended to be.
What about you? As my mother, Gertrude Sanborn, wrote "My times, Thy
hands! Sweet peace I find in this, O Lord, and grace to meet the
problems of each day" (Page 195, With Tears In My Heart). The Bible
says it this way in Psalm 31:14-15: "But I trusted in Thee, O
LORD: I said, Thou art my God, my times are in Thy hand."
I THINK OF A DEAR FRIEND WHOSE LIFE WAS
SNATCHED AWAY in September. Her earthly "times" ended
abruptly. It is past human understanding! How glad we were that she knew
Jesus Christ as her personal Saviour. How many rush from earth to
Eternity without Him! Are you one of those who daily travel without
Jesus? How empty your life must be. Just the day before that sad
cemetery walk, my husbandís surgeon released him to carry on a normal
life again. Dr. Waite had a hip replacement on August 9th. How good to
be pain free! Those recovery "times" were unusual "times"
for us. A husband was made well and lived to preach again. A
friend died and went on to Glory to sit at Jesusí feet. "So I put my
hand in Thine, O God my Father; and holding thus will walk my brief and
DR. WAITE SAYS THAT WE HERE AT 900 PARK AVENUE IN
COLLINGSWOOD, NJ (08108) ARE A "WAY STATION." Folk come for a
season. They learn. They leave. We go on. How good to have you a part of
our ministry. Remember when you first heard about the BFT or the
DEAN BURGON SOCIETY? It was then that your "times" mixed
with our "times." THANK YOU FOR PRAYING, CARING, AND FINANCIALLY
CONTRIBUTING. O how we need you! "My times, my goings, and my comings
Thou dost know."
WE ARE SO EXCITED ABOUT OUR STREAMING MINISTRY.

HERESY (JFW/71-72 @$7.00 + S&H) I read Dan Brownís novel
to see for myself his theory that Jesus did not shed his blood for
sinners on the Cross of Calvary but rather ran off with Mary Magdalene,
his chief disciple, to France where He fathered a child named Sarah. It
THIS YEAR I PRAISE GOD FOR THREE GREAT GRANDCHILDREN--darling
little people, fresh, and precious--Breana, Timothy, & Richard Kaleb.
Grandson Jake and his bride Amber were married in July--a beautiful
"time" of rejoicing. Our Marine grandson returned
safely from Iraq in September. He got home in time for the birth of his
son who arrived on Great Uncle Danís birthday. Our daughter and
son-in-law visited us in November. Reggie had not been in Collingswood
for years. A lovely "time" with autumn leaves and joy of family. Itís
fun to watch their Kristen, our TV journalist-granddaughter, do her news
stories via my computerís Internet! Our sons & their wives rejoice in
answered prayer. Godís mercies to them bless our hearts, too. Thatís how
it is when one has grown children. Spending the Thanksgiving week-end
with adult children brings a realization that Dr. Waite and I are the
elders in our clan. We are moving up on lifeís departure platform.
"My times so small they seem as I compare Thy hands which wrote the Laws
and shook the Mountain."
HOW HAPPY I AM THAT GERTRUDE G. SANBORNíS POEMS ARE
IN A BOOK--over 400 poems treasured together! Both
she and Daddy have been "with the Lord" since 1988. With Tears In My
Heart is a book to cherish! YOU MUST GET IT! (BFT # 3196
@$25.00@ + S&H) The other day a young woman told me, "That book
changed my life!" I was moved by her words! Please read the
enclosed brochure that explains all about the book and the prices.
Just in case you happened to receive a flawed book, please return
it to us and weíll send you another one. We have 57,000
DEFINED KING JAMES BIBLES in print! The book DEFENDING THE KING
JAMES BIBLE is in its ninth printing! DR. WAITE HAS WRITTEN TWO
BOOKS THIS YEAR. One is ROMANS--PREACHING VERSE BY VERSE,
a 731-page treasure (BFT #2906BK @ $25+$5 S&H). The Apostle Paulís
epistle to the Christians at Rome was a Primer of Theology. The other
book is The FUNDAMENTALIST DECEPTION ON BIBLE PRESERVATION
[161 pages] (BFT#3234 @ $8.00+$4 S&H)--a critique of Godís Word in
our Hands, The BIBLE Preserved For Us. The authors suggest
"perpetuation" for "preservation." My husband says that which is
"perpetuated" is not necessarily "preserved."
