Basic Christian Experience:
Much of what one will find at this site is that which concerns basic Christian experience ---Redemption Way, Church Truth, and Spiritual Life, though other ministry is available. It is hoped one will seek after the scriptural path, rather than what pleases the flesh.
1) This first truth speaks about God's plan and purpose, sacrifice, salvation of our soul, hope, the Lord's reign and glory, and assurance of His care and love for all eternity, etc.;
2) The second truth sets forth God's expectations for our walk in this world, collective worship, His testimony in unity, the real gospel message, and honor to Him and obediance to His Word, etc.;
3) The third truth is about devotion, serving, growing or maturing in the Christian faith.
General ministry on Christianity is also added. Each one of these should be studied for our good, and when you have questions please feel free to write here. We can look at the Word of God together which is our only authority under God. See also Index above!
Hello again friends. Your visit here is appreciated, and questions and comments are welcome and held confidential. 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.
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". S ee the message and testimony at Site Manager Page.
Papers and comments here are changed periodically, and are personal convictions. There are many pages for help and encouragement. 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 Bulb Is Out!"
The story is told of a little boy who did not want to attend a gospel meeting again. He came and sat with his parents, and tried to occupy his thoughts with everything so he would not have to listen to the message of salvation. He looked up and saw a light fixture on the ceiling with six light bulbs, and one of the bulbs was burned out. He then looked around the room at the brick walls, and began counting the bricks. When he tired of that he looked up again at the light fixture and noted: "a bulb is out".
He closed his eyes and tried to think of many things, so he would not have to hear the voice of the preacher, talking about the need to receive Jesus Christ as his Savior and Lord. He opened his eyes, and as he looked up he could not help being occupied with the light bulb that was out.
After the meeting the family returned to their home and later went to bed. As he laid in bed looking up, he thought again of that bulb that was out in the assembly meeting room. Then, a thought came to him that there are six children in his family, and he is the only one who has not confessed Jesus Christ as His Savior. He realized then that God was speaking to him as one among six, who was not saved and who also needed the Lord Jesus Christ. Thankfully he confessed Christ and received Him as his own Savior. Can the reader see and hear God speaking to him now? - 12/05 Forwarded by K. Harmon: source unknown
A SONG OF SAINTS
Look, look, ye saints, within the veil,
And raise your happy song;
Your joys can never, never fail,
For you to Christ belong.
O happy saints, for ever freed
From guilt and every care;
Dwell, dwell with your exalted Head,
And let your life be there.
And glory in your Lord and God;
See, see Him as He is;
Your robes are spotless thro' His blood,
Your happiness is His.
O think not of this world of woe,
Though subject still to grief;
But seek your portion there to know,
For this will give relief.
Aye trust, for ever trust in God,
For every promise given;
And dwell with Him thro' Jesus's blood
Within the veil of Heaven.
