THE COUNTY’S IN A FINANCIAL CRISIS!!
WE CAN’T HELP BUT BE AWARE THAT THE FINANCIAL CRISIS IN OUR COUNTRY IS GREAT! Money slips through our fingers like water under a faucet. We don’t want to lose it, but we do. It’s the way with investments in this country. Soon some of us will be on a street corner with pencils and a cup.
PRESIDENT OBAMA’S DESIRE IS TO LIMIT, IF NOT DISCONTINUE, YOUR GIVING TO CHARITY–especially those whose salary is $250,000 a year or above. At least that is the Washington-talk at this writing. I don’t think that will go over too well with philanthropic groups.
PEOPLE ARE ALWAYS CALLING OR SENDING US LETTERS FULL OF THEIR NEEDS. So many people have problems. There are the sick ones, the tired ones, the depressed ones, and the hungry ones. You get them, too. We here at THE BIBLE FOR TODAY have a need of charity like other ministries do. If it were not for GOD’S provision by your hand, we could not continue the ministry in the way we have been doing so these last years. THANK YOU! We trust in God. That’s all we can do. That’s what we must do. And that is what we have been doing for the forty-three years we’ve lived here at 900 Park Avenue.
“Charity suffereth long and is kind;;
Charily envieth not;
Charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
Doth not behave itself unseemlyseemly
Seeketh not her own,
Is not easily provoked,
Thinketh no evil. . . “
GOD’S PROVISION IN ALL AREAS OF LIFE
AND OUR NEW PRESIDENT SEEMS TO WANT DOCTORS TO DO ABORTIONS–EVEN IF IT IS AGAINST THEIR CONSCIENCES–OR JAIL! Then, with universal health care, one of our new President’s desires is astounding! According toAND OUR NEW PRESIDENT SEEMS TO WANT DOCTORS TO DO ABORTIONS–EVEN IF IT IS AGAINST THEIR CONSCIENCES–OR JAIL! Then, with universal health care, one of our new President’s desires is astounding! According to WORLD MAGAZINE (March 14, 2009), the Obama Plan says that a Washington official will “monitor treatments to make sure your doctor is doing what the Federal Government deems appropriate and cost effective.” THIS IS SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST!
FORMER UNITED STATES SURGEON GENERAL C. EVERETT KOOP, a Christian man, had an aliment in1988, that left him a quadriplegic. (I did not know this, did you?) He was quoted in WORLD recently at age 91, reflecting on his situation in 1988. He said, “If I’d lived in England
(where they have socialize medicine), I would have been nine years too old to have the surgery that saved my life and gave me another 21 years.”
ACCORDING TO MY LIMITED ARITHMETIC ABILITY, THAT MEANS HE WAS 70 YEARS OLD AT THE TIME. How many seventy year-old people do you know that you want to be “hung out with the wash”? Come to think of it, my husband, DR. D. A. WAITE would not have been eligible for his hip surgery. He was seventy eight at the time!
A LETTER FROM A FRIENDD
RECENTLY I RECEIVED A LETTER FROM A FRIEND OF MY MOTHER’S. (My Mother is GERTRUDE SANBORN, the poet. I tell you about her poems a lot. She has been in Heaven for twenty years [in June]). My friend, Mrs. C., must be in her nineties by now. She lives in Tennessee with her daughter. I enjoy her letters. She has excellent hand-writing--much better than mine! She spoke of her recent need for a “FRESH TOUCH” from the LORD! Don’t we all need this?
OSWALD CHAMBERS’’ “UTMOST””
SHE TOLD ME OF THE WRITINGS OF CERTAIN MEN SHE HAS BEEN READING AFTER RECENTLY. One was OSWALD CHAMBERS. I, too, had been blessed last year by pages from CHAMBERS’ MY UTMOST FOR HIS HIGHEST devotional book. I keep it in my kitchen. I heard a few years ago that President George W. Bush read from that devotional every day. Not sure if that is true, but that is what I heard. Enjoyed looking at the daily pages–often reading them to friends who dropped in. Don’t always agree with Chambers’ doctrine but am blessed in spite of it.
FROM ARTIST TO PREACHERR
READ SOMETHING THIS PAST YEAR ABOUT OSWALD CHAMBERS IN REX COBB’S PAPER CALLED “LIFT UP YOUR EYES.” (He runs the BAPTIST BIBLE TRANSLATORS INSTITUTE in Texas.) This article said that Oswald Chambers (1874-1917) was an artist. He had no intention of being in the ministry. That’s like the Apostle Paul and the other disciples, as well as all of the prophets, for that matter.
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHTS FROM A PREACHING TO WWII SOLDIERS
THIS TRAVELING PREACHER MINISTERED TO AUSTRALIA’S SOLDIERS IN TENT MEETINGS IN CAIRO DURING WORLD WAR ONE. The men flocked to his meetings by the hundreds. Many of the devotional thoughts that we read today in MY UTMOST were taken from the messages Chambers gave to those men as they prepared for battle. Chambers died at forty-three!
HER COMMENT UPSET MEE
MY FRIEND MADE A COMMENT TO ME IN HER LETTER THAT STARTLED ME! At first it made me upset. Then I became defensive. I began composing clever words in my head to refute her. Then I let her words work in my heart. HOW OFTEN WE JUMP TO CONCLUSIONS AND DEFEND OURSELVES–MAKE AN ENEMY OR NOT RECEIVE THE COMMENT AS IT WAS GIVEN. I had sent her a BFT UPDATE–and maybe something else. I don’t remember. She said, ”I note that the emphasis of the BFT ministry is on using only the King James Version of God’s Word. We believe our main emphasis and passion should be the Person and Work of our glorious Lord Jesus Christ.” (Underlining mine.) I wondered, myself, if she would say the same thing to someone who teaches about creation vs evolution or majors on prophecy, or has a ministry to the Jewish people only.
THE BFT UPDATE TELLS YOU WHAT WE DOO
IT IS TRUE--THAT OFTEN THE BIBLE FOR TODAY UPDATE TELLS MOSTLY ABOUT MY HUSBAND’S GOING TO CHURCHES OR CONFERENCES AND SPEAKING ON THE VERSION ISSUE. The reason he speaks on the DEFENSE OF THE KING JAMES BIBLE AND ITS UNDERLYING TEXTS is becauseis because people and pastors ask him to do so. He is an excellent Bible teacher. Perhaps you have heard his sermons on our web site–www.BibleForToday.org! In January, we had 14,047 downloads from our sermon-audio.com site. My husband has become one of the leading experts on the subject of the King James Bible Textual defense. He also hears from folk who do not have Bible teaching in their churches or areas. They are learning much Truth from his teachings & sermons.
HOW DID DR. WAITE BECOME A KJB DEFENDER?
It was a calling given by God, not by self!!
HOW DID DR. WAITE BECOME INTERESTED IN THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE GREEK TEXTS? It is very interesting. In about 1970, he was a Speech and Greek teacher in a near-by Christian college when one of his students asked him, HOW DID DR. WAITE BECOME INTERESTED IN THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE GREEK TEXTS? It is very interesting. In about 1970, he was a Speech and Greek teacher in a near-by Christian college when one of his students asked him, “DR. WAITE HAVE YOU EVER SEEN THE BOOK BY JOHN WILLIAM BURGON CALLED REVISION REVISED?” (BFT #611 @ $25.00 + $5.00 S&H)
DR. WAITE LOOKED AT THAT BOOK. HIS EYES WERE OPENED! His whole life was changed! He began using the proper Greek Text. He studied the issue and soon people were asking him about the differences. What was he supposed to do? Not answer people’s questions?
HOW CAN ONE LEARN OF THE PERSON & WORK” OF JESUS CHRIST IF THE VERSES ARE NOT IN THE BIBLE THEY ARE USING, or they are taken out, or if they are changed?
THE BEAUTY, THE PERSON & THE WORK OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST IN THE WORDS OF GODD
HOW CAN ANYONE KNOW THE BEAUTY OF THE PERSON AND WORK OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST IF THEY DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT BIBLE GREEK TEXT AND THE PROPER TRANSLATION OF THAT TEXT? It is the Lord Jesus Christ who is THE WORD! It is He who gave THE WORDS to the Bible writers. Holy men of old spake as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.
I’VE ASKED MY HUSBAND, PASTOR D. A. WAITE, Th.D., Ph.D., TO WRITE THE NEXT PARAGRAPHS ONNGNOSTICISM..
The Gnostic Heretics’ Influence on the Critical TextThe Gnostic Heretics’ Influence on the Critical Text. There is a documented book that we carry in the Bible For Today ministry entitled Gnosticism: The Doctrinal Foundation of the New Bible Versions. It is by Mrs. Janet Moser (now with the Lord). You can order it online as BFT #2732. It has 235 large pages for a gift of $24.00 + $6.00 S&P. Or you can call us with your credit card at 856-854-4452 and order it that way.
The historical headquarters for Gnosticism was Alexandria, Egypt. The origin of the Vatican and Sinai manuscripts was also Alexandria, Egypt. It can be seen that when the Gnostic heresies could not be found in the Traditional Greek New Testament that they had in their hands, they changed the Traditional Greek Text to what is known as the Vatican and the Sinai Greek manuscripts in order to accommodate their heresies. Mrs. Moser has gone extensively through many of the Gnostic books, documenting many quotations of their teachings and then showing how those heretical ideas have infiltrated the Critical Greek Texts of either Westcott and Hort, the Nestla/Aland 27, or the United Bible Societies 4 on which the modern versions are based thus making these modern versions replete with doctrinal errors.
The Gnostics’ Denial of the Person of the Lord Jesus Christ. Here are some of the Gnostic false teachings on Christ’s Person: (1) “Jesus had a sin nature like every other man” (p. 93). (2) “Redemption includes Jesus Christ” (p. 180). (3) “Joseph, not God, was the father of Jesus) (p. 83). (4) “Jesus was not God incarnate and did not have all of God’s attributes” (p. 80). (5) “Jesus was not God incarnate and did not have all of God’s attributes” (p. 80). (6) “The term ‘Lord’ refers to ‘the father,’ not Jesus” (p. 62). (7) “The Son is not equal to the Father” (p. 3). (8) “Jesus is not the Lord God Almighty” (p. 87). (9) “The Christ is separate from Jesus” (p. 95). (10) “The Christ came upon Jesus at His baptism in order to enlighten and perfect Him and left Him before He died” (p. 97).
The Gnostic’ Denial of the Work of the Lord Jesus Christ. Here are some of the Gnostic false teachings regarding Christ’s Work: (1) “The Savior did not die on the cross, but rather another Jesus who was demon-possessed” (p. 106). (2) “Man is saved by the symbolic death of Christ within man, not by the blood of Christ” (p. 62). (3) “Man is saved through faith in his own works, not that of Christ’s” (p. 173). Since the Gnostics deny that the Lord Jesus Christ was “God incarnate” and “did not have all of God’s attributes,” (4) They deny all of the miracles of Christ. (5) They deny that Christ was the Creator of all things. (6) They deny that Christ could raise the dead. (7) They deny that Christ could be raised bodily from death. (8) They deny that Christ could ascend bodily into heaven. (9) They deny that Christ could rapture the saved when He comes in the air and take them to Heaven. (10 They deny that Christ will return to the earth at the end of the Tribulation and be victorious over the thousands of soldiers who will be fighting at the battle of Armageddon.
Verses in the Gnostic Modern Bible Versions That Reveal Their Doctrinal Denials. For almost 200 pages that illustrate over 356 doctrinal passages in the Gnostic Modern Bible Versions, I refer you to the well-documented book by Dr. Jack Moorman in London, England. The title of the book is Early Manuscripts, Church Fathers, and the Authorized Version. It is BFT #3230 @ $25.00 + $5.00 S&H. It can be ordered online at www.BibleForToday.org or at www.DeanBurgonSociety.org The verses are found on pages 119-312. Dr. Moorman formats his work in two columns. In column #1, he gives the Authorized version verse with the words in question underlined and the manuscript evidence for this reading. In column #2, he gives the Gnostic New International Version verse with the manuscript evidence for that reading. If you wish, you can phone our office at 856-854-4452 with our credit card, and order this book. Or you can send in your order by cash or credit card to the Bible For Today, 900 Park Avenue, Collingswood, New Jersey 08108. (DAW)

HEBREWS 13: 7
Last week in our church, we were in the first part of chapter 13.Last week in our church, we were in the first part of chapter 13. Pastor D. A. Waite pointed out something that I don’t ever remember hearing. Maybe you have. In Hebrews 13:7, we read the familiar verses about REMEMBERING THEM WHO HAVE THE “RULE” OVER YOU.
Those we are to remember are our pastors. THEY HAVE SPOKEN TO US CONCERNING THE WORD OF GOD. (That’s an extremely important teaching–some of what Pastor Waite teaches concerning the Word of God I have already conveyed to you in the above paragraphs.)
THEN PAUL ENJOINED THE HEBREW CHRISTIANS TO REMEMBER THEIR PASTORS WHOSE FAITH FOLLOW THEM. So many pastors fall by the wayside. You know some of them yourself. It is sad. We are to remember the ones who have been faithful!
We have a pastor in Illinois, George Nika, who has been a faithful steward of God’s Words for over sixty years. He is about 94 or so now and still pulpit supplies most every Sunday when he is well. That’s the kind of pastor we are to remember. Their FAITH follow them! They are true to the OLD PATHS that Paul laid down for them to walk upon.
THEN HEBREWS 13:7 SAYS TO CONSIDER THE END of the PASTORS LIFE, THE END OF HIS MANNER OF LIVING BEFORE HIS DEATH. Paul is telling the Christians here to consider (think about) the dying of their Pastor. I had a pastor for a short period of time, who was in his eighties, and very afraid of death. He was a wonderful expositor of the Words of God, but afraid of death. It spoiled his testimony to some degree–this fear.
My husband said the Greek word there meant the manner in which the Pastor would die should be considered. It conveys the meaning that the Pastor should die in a good way, a Christian way, a way that glorifies God. It behooves us to try to make the closing years of our Pastors’ ministries good. Try not to pick on him and his wife. Try not to break their hearts. They are doing the best they can with the strength and health God has permitted them to have. They care about your souls and your spiritual growth. It is amazing to me how some Christians, in their desire to be true to God, malign their pastors. It does not seem to bother the critics that the pastor is their elder and seasoned in the spiritual things of life. Much is learned by living a long life. Much should be taught to the younger people–but, sad to say, many young Christians think they know it all, and are critical.
CONSIDER MOSES! HE DID HIS FINEST WORK AFTER EIGHTY!
I AM VERY TOUCHED BY THIS--as I have said many times. “I hope that I die well.” I have also said, “We have no dress rehearsal for death–so I hope I do it well when I go.” Perhaps this verse meant much to me last Sunday because I’m 82 now and my husband is 81. But don’t be dejected because we are up there in years. WE ARE NOT DEJECTED! God is blessing us with service in our old age. It is much for which to praise Him! Oh–for more men and women of the caliber of Moses. Are you one of them?
I’M UNDER GOD’S CARE, ARE YOU,
Yvonne S. Waite (for Dr. Waite, too)
