WELCOME HERE FRIENDS!   It is hoped you will find this site to be very helpful.  All questions and comments are welcome and held confidential (e-mail:    This web site is non-sectarian ministry to encourage the reading of God's Word, and for serious seeking after truth. It values God's work of revival in the early 1800's, with which it is associated, and urges readers to learn about it (see Church Truth page and Feature pages above). It is always the desire and hope here to obey and honor our Lord, and encourage and seek the spiritual welfare of all people.  WE NEED TO SERVE AS "ONE BODY" IN  CHRIST!  No thought here is to condemn personal faith, for each one must look to God in their personal life, but  this speaks to spiritual life and the holy gospel truth by Bible-only;   and what God has intended for His collective testimony in this world.  We need "all the counsel of God". 

Everyone may participate in the ministry of this web site, by telling their friends to visit here. We hope all will find some ministry to help, and perhaps a nice challenge for their faith. Surely "the time is short", as God says, and surely we need to also "be about (our) Father's business".  See the message and testimony at Site Manager Page.  The writer does not have all answers, but will be glad to share what has been learned over many years.  Questions and contrary views in a helpful way are appreciated.

Papers and comments here are changed periodically, and are personal convictions.  Serious seekers after church testimony might well see Christian Assembly pages: F4 & F5.    There are many pages for help and encouragement --- SEE INDEX ABOVE FOR A BIBLE STUDY --F8.   The manager may not have answers for all questions, but is glad to share what he has and be of some help. He is not perfect and revisions and updates seem needed at times to clarify thoughts, so one might note the revision date on any papers they wish to copy (set your print margins at .25). Any copies made should not be altered or taken out of context.

A true and faithful believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, will walk with Him and talk with Him daily, until that day when one can see Him and be with Him forever in the Father's house in Heaven.  - RLD, 12/09

[We are born and live in the element of time, and do not much comprehend the thought of eternity, but we are created as eternal beings and will dwell somewhere after our body dies. Our Creator-God desires that we choose to be with Him forever, rather than with Satan in condemnation.]

Whatever one might choose to think about life, death, and eternity, the truth of the Word of God is that after death comes the judgment. This is not speaking of a court room and a defense plan and negotiations. The court room is here NOW and we are already found GUILTY.  See the book of Romans ---noting Romans 3:10-31; and meditate on a full picture at Romans 5.  We are from birth awaiting our end and need to be saved from our sinful nature today, lest we are taken from earth before the morrow, and have no place in the holiness of Heaven. We need to see the salvation of God in THE ATONEMENT OF CHRIST and embrace it. Salvation is not found in religion, but only in God's beloved Son (see John 14 and meditate on verse 6). There will be no pleas heard at the judgment of the "GREAT WHITE THRONE" above, for it will then be too late, for THEN speaks of sentencing not a Hearing. God says: "...Behold, NOW is the accepted time; behold, NOW is the day of salvation" (2 Cor. 6:2).

Man may reason about life and death, but no one knows the eternal truth of it except God, so God needs to be heard and His gift of salvation received. There is really an urgency now, to be settled with the only hope given man for "after life" salvation; and man is implored by our Creator-God in His Holy Word to hear Him, receive His Son (who paid the price of salvation on the Cross of Calvary), and be saved.  OUR DEMISE MAY BE EVEN TODAY!  

What does the reader know about the Word of God? Does one want to know?  That is the real question for man to answer. One needs to read the Bible, especially noting such as John 1; John 3; John 14;  Rom. 3;  1Jn. 5: 10-13; etc.  Are readers here SAVED by a living faith in the Lord Jesus, the Christ of God, and thus know they will be in Heaven by the promise of God?  One can know, if a seeker makes the Lord Jesus a personal Savior and best Friend!    -R. DeWitt:  RG02; 5/09

Life at best is very brief,
Like the falling of a leaf,
Like the binding of a sheaf,
Be in time!
Fleeting days are telling fast
That the die will soon be cast,
And the fatal line be past,
Be in time!

Fairest flowers soon decay;
Youth and beauty pass away.
Oh, you have not long to stay.
Be in time!
While God's Spirit bids you come,
Sinner, do not longer roam,
Lest you seal your hopeless doom,
Be in time!

Time is gliding swiftly by;
Death and judgment both draw nigh,
To the arms of Jesus fly.
Be in time!
Oh, I pray you count the cost
Ere the fatal line be crossed,
And your Christless soul be lost.
Be in time!

Sinner, heed the warning voice;
Make the Lord your happy choice,
Then all heaven will rejoice.
Be in time!
Come from darkness into light,
From the way that seemeth right;
Come and start for heaven tonight.
Be in time!

While the voice of Jesus calls you,
Be in time!
If in sin you longer wait
You may find no open gate,
And your cry be just too late;
Be in time!
