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 in the world (note 1 Cor. 12:25)!   No thought here is to condemn personal faith,  for each one must look to God in their per-sonal life, but  this speaks to the ESSENCE of  biblical  Christianity, which is BIBLE ONLY, apart from man's reasonings and innovations;  and  addresses  Redemption WayChurch TruthSpiritual Life; and Bible overview to maintain the balance in the faith.  It is what God has intended for  His collective testimony in this world.  We need "all the counsel of God" as God enjoins us,  and we need to encourage all souls to embrace all these things.

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



At the very beginning of time, when man fell in sin and lost his innocence (Gen. 2&3), the Holy Scripture shows God began His great plan of recovery, redemption, and reconciliation; for the Almighty God of all creation conceived this plan in His foreknowledge before the foundation of the world. He will preserve that which He created regardless of the rebellion and opposition of men, and the evil of Satan.

Nothing is ever beyond the One who is "omniscient, omnipotent, and omnipresent". One ought to believe and appreciate that eternal truth. God made a great and wondrous world and made a people therein to satisfy His great heart of love;  and in this the teaching to mankind about love and the need to learn to return love to the Father-God.  He purposed to have children for Himself, and with full understanding of the evil intent of Satan, He began a great and glorious work of preservation in the face of the enemy. There can be no doubt of the foreknowledge and sovereignty of God;  and only a foolish one would fight against it.

It is not the intent here to respond to all the questions and challenges by those who have no faith, but to set forth for the good of serious and wise men and God's glory, that precious work of preservation of His creation. Salvation is for "whosoever will" come; nevertheless, God will have a people. The purposes of God must not be confused with the feeble ways of man and the works of Satan ---the master deceiver.

Individuals may rebel, and Satan may scheme, but God will accomplish His will, as Holy Scripture shows. Satan will be judged in the course of time, and be cast away in the end; and those who have refused God's mercy and grace will also go down to condemnation with him. Truly man is corrupted and ruined by sin, and has little or no regard for God, but God has ever held forth His hand to receive him. Our Creator would be completely justified to wipe the world clean and begin again, but one must say: He did a perfect and eternal work, and He will recover and finish the work He began.

The preservation of man is for a people, and individuals ought to decide to be a part of that people. Regardless of the rebellion of most men, the Lord will redeem, recover, and reconcile a people by grace in the end to be with Him for all eternity (Job 19:23-27; Psa. 23:6; Isa.14:26-27;  Lk.1:68;  Gal.4:4-6;  Rev.5:9).  

After the Lord Jesus Christ takes up His "bride" (the church) out of this world, and God's wrath falls on all unrighteousness here, the Lord will return with His bride to reign over men for a thousand years; then Jehovah God will purge the earth by fire and make a new earth. God will have an earthly people and a heavenly people forever in holiness. Does the reader want to be among that number saved?   - RLD:  RK02; 11/04; 08/19.
