AUGUST, 2007

    "FOR WHERE YOUR TREASURE IS,
    THERE WILL YOUR HEART BE ALSO."

    (Matthew 6:21)

 
    WHAT SHOULD I SAY?????
 
        SOMETIMES IT IS DIFFICULT FOR ME TO KNOW WHAT EXACTLY I SHOULD SAY AS I START THIS LETTER TO YOU.   For instance--should I start by telling you of the wonderful annual meeting of THE DEAN BURGON SOCIETY that was held in HAGERSTOWN, MARYLAND, July 18-19?  (It's all recorded & is "streamed"--a blessing, by the way.)   Or should I tell you about our HOME CHURCH and the recent sermons in the book of EPHESIANS, PHILIPPIANS & COLOSSIANS that Pastor Waite has been giving to our CHURCH?  (All of these messages can be yours on DVD, cassette, or VHS-video by calling 1-800-John 10:9.)  OR SHOULD I TELL YOU OF THE EVER-INCREASING E-MAILS & LETTERS TELLING OF THE BLESSING PEOPLE HAVE FROM THE INTERNET SERMONS & MEETINGS?  OR SHOULD I TELL YOU ABOUT THE FINANCIAL NEED THAT OUR MINISTRY IS IN RIGHT NOW?
 
    PLEASE HELP US!
 
         NOW THAT I'VE BROUGHT THAT UP--I THINK I'LL TELL YOU HOW WE NEED YOUR HELP TO COVER OUR BFT BILLS.  We have them, you know.   (I'm not referring to Dr. Waite's and my bills.  We do not take money from any of our ministries--NOT EVEN EXPENSE MONEY--nor from all the book money from book tables or your orders.  The funds go right back into the ministry.)
 
THERE ARE BILLS TO PAY!
 
         SOMETIMES, I THINK THAT YOU MAY FEEL, BECAUSE THE MINISTRY IS IN OUR HOME &  THE CHURCH MEETS IN OUR HOME, THAT THERE ARE NO BILLS TO BE PAID.  Dr. Waite and I help very much financially--yes we do; but we cannot do it all.  We have to live also!     
 
 FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS NEEDED
 
 TO PAY BACK THE BIBLE FUND
 
        JUST YESTERDAY, MY HUSBAND TOLD ME THAT OUR BFT TREASURER, HAD TO BORROW $5,000 FROM THE BIBLE-PUBLISHING FUND, AS WELL AS OTHER FUNDS, TO PAY THE BILLS.  Yes, he did.  The bill collectors were upon us!  It upsets me, for I know that when it is time to republish Ths Defined King James Bible, we may not have the money to pay for it.  We republish The DKJ  BIBLE at least once a year--at least it seems that way to me that a big truck backs into our driveway with a load of Bibles.  The DKJ Bible is printed in South Korea and that company wants to be paid within 30 days of delivery.   I don't blame them, do you?
 
GOD IS FAITHFUL
 
         EVERY TIME THE BIBLES HAVE COME, GOD HAS BROUGHT IN THE MONEY.  Usually I don't make a plea for the funds for the Bibles or much of anything; but, I am constrained to do so today.
 
A LITTLE BROWN BAG CAME OUR WAY
 
    One time several years ago, I think it may have been the second or third printing, we needed $9,000 to pay for a Bible delivery.  WE DID NOT HAVE IT!  I thought we would have to mortgage our house!   But God brought in $10,000 in a little brown-paper candy bag when a man, whom we did not know personally at the time, knocked at our door and said, "Here is something that might help you to pay for the Bibles."  I did not know what to do.  I was afraid to hold the bag and called my husband, leaving the man standing there in the hall.   I felt like the disciples in the book of Acts who prayed for Peter to be let out of prison and then couldn't believe it when he stood there at the door before her.
 
WHERE IS YOUR HEART?
 
        HOST PASTOR, J. PAUL RENO, AT THE RECENT DEAN BURGON SOCIETY MEETING THERE IN HAGERSTOWN, MARYLAND, MADE AN ARRESTING COMMENT WHEN HE WAS ASKING THE DBS PEOPLE TO GIVE TO THE OFFERING.  He said that most of us care about our money--our treasure--VERY MUCH.  In fact, we care about it so much that where it is (our money) that is EXACTLY where are hearts are.  Pastor Reno reminded us that Jesus taught this TREASURE/HEART TRUTH.  It was not new truth.  But I had not heard this exhortation for a long, long time.  My husband, in our church, seldom talks about money--usually ONLY in regard to our missionary giving.  Then it is so subtle, one doesn't get it if one doesn't care.  Perhaps that is why all people may not give liberally.  I don't know.  Everyone does not know about hilarious giving.       
 
BOAT?  BUSINESS?  EDUCATION?  CLOTHES?  YARD?  MATE?
 
        IF OUR MONEY (our treasure) IS IN A BOAT AT THE SHORE, THAT'S WHERE OUR HEARTS ARE.  SO, THAT IS WHERE WE ARE ON WEEKENDS.  If our money (our treasure) is in our business, that is where our hearts are.  So it is no surprise to find ourselves at the place of business or thinking about the business all the time.  If our money (our treasure) is in our children's education, that is where our hearts are.   We keep in contact with the school, or the books, or the campus, or the children all the time.  We make any excuse to be at that institution or call on the phone constantly.  If our money (our treasure) is in our clothes, that is where our hearts are.  We are consumed in what we are wearing and the latest fashions constantly.   We have a huge clothing budget!    If our money (our treasure) is in our yards, that is where our hearts are.  Should we seed that bare area?  Does this other brown spot need more water?  If our money (our treasure) is in our mates, to the extent that we cannot think of anything else, that is where our hearts are.  We could go on and on.  It touches home, doesn't it?  
 
ONE MORE THING!
 
        NOW I WANT TO SAY ONE MORE THING--I think.  When God supplies this $5,000 from you or a friend, WE WON'T be OUT OF THE RED.   You see, THE BIBLE FOR TODAY HAS SALARIES TO PAY.  (That is why we can't pay our bills.)   So the salaries keep going on and on.  More bills come in day after day.  We'll go into debt more and more.   So our friends who are so blessed by the BFT ministry (I am not talking about the church now) must HELP US!   
        I CAN'T TELL YOU HOW MANY E-mails Dr. Waite RECEIVES DAILY.  He answers every one of them.  You know this if you are one of the correspondents.  Once in a while, AN OCCASIONAL SOMEONE contributes to the cause.  Hardly ever!   We have huge computer problems at times. Right now there is a big computer change with servers, etc. etc.   (I don't even know how to talk the talk.)  All that costs money!   Between that and the salaries. . . .   
        WHEN WE WERE AT THIS LAST DEAN BURGON SOCIETY MEETING IN HAGERSTOWN, PEOPLE KEPT TELLING THE AUDIENCE HOW MUCH DR. WAITE HAS DONE FOR THEM IN THE BIBLE'S TEXTUAL MATTERS.  It's true.  He has given himself to this Bible textual cause.   But who will come over and help us financially?  Just asking, that's all.   I am a concerned wife for the financial health of THE BIBLE FOR TODAY.  
 
MATTHEW 6: 18b-21;24
JESUS SAID

 
        . . . Thy father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.  Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal. . .No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other, or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other.  Ye cannot serve God and *mammon.

    *THE DEFINED KING JAMES BIBLE tells us that "MAMMON is an Aramaic word for riches, money, wealth; sometimes personified as a false god or an object of worship; often regarded as an evil influence."  
 
A DECISION!
 
        I'VE MADE A DECISION!   I AM NOT GOING TO WRITE ANY MORE PAGES.  Even though, I really want to tell you about the excellent DEAN BURGON WOMEN'S meeting; but I won't.  Ask for the DVD or audio tape!  I want you to know that Dr. Waite's talk on BIBLE FALSEHOODS OF MICHAEL SPROUL was outstanding--BUT I won't go into it now.  Before him was PASTOR KEN RAINEY from Greenville, SC.  It was his church that recently dropped to almost emptiness when my husband had meetings there because of BJU-influence opposition.  YOU CAN SEE THAT TEACHING IF YOU CLICK ON TO WAYSIDE BAPTIST CHURCH ON OUR WEBPAGE ( http://biblefortoday.org ).   Nor will I tell you of DR. H.D. WILLIAMS' speech that helped me understand POSTMODERNISM and how it has affected the Bible version issue, as well as everything else in our lives.   PASTOR MICHAEL MONTE always makes us laugh with his illustrations and sense of humor in getting his point across in COMPARING SPIRITUAL THINGS WITH SPIRITUAL.  MR. JAMES GRUMBLATT gave us a whole different view of the fortitude of the three Hebrew children as he spoke on RIGHTLY DIVIDING THE WORD OF TRUTH.  WAS AMAZED AT DANIEL WAITE'S CONTINUING SERIES CALLED "DBS--THEN AND NOW."  We saw & heard the men speak.  Some are "with the Lord" now.  THERE WERE MORE SPEAKERS--but must stop!  I must run!  MUST SAY THIS:  We were absolutely thrilled to view the DVD of DR. J. A. MOORMAN's summary of research he is doing called, "Introduction to the Manuscript Digest of the New Testament."  How good to see him after all these years!   The DVD is for a gift of $15.00 + $3.00 S&H.  You must order it!  If you want the entire 722-large-page document, it is BFT #3324 for a gift of $40.00 + $10.00 S&H.
 
 SEND A CARD TO JANE HOLLOWOOD
 
        IN CLOSING, I WANT TO TELL YOU ABOUT OUR DEAR FRIEND, MRS. JANE HOLLOWOOD, WHO IS CLOSE TO HEAVEN'S PORTALS, WAITING FOR HER PERSONAL "HOME CALL."  She is Dr. M. J. Hollowood's widow and DBS SPEAKER DAVID HOLLOWOOD'S mother.  He spoke so lovingly of her in his talk to us there in HAGERSTOWN.  The other day Dan & Tamie Waite, as well as their daughter, Anna (our granddaughter), visited the nursing home.  How blessed they were by this Christian woman still teaching and witnessing from her bed of suffering.  Mrs. Hollowood lives a few hours from us here in Collingswood.  Her address is Mrs. Jane Hollowood, MAPLE FARM NURSING HOME, 604 Oak Street, Akron, Pa. 17501.
 
ONE LAST PLEA
 
    BEFORE I GO,  I HAVE A QUESTION FOR YOU.   
    DO YOU HAVE "A LITTLE BROWN PAPER BAG" WAITING FOR A PLACE TO SERVE?   
    HOPE SO!
 

 
    IN GOD'S WISE CARE (I Corinthians 15:10),

    Yvonne S. Waite ( for Dr. Waite, too.)
