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.  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 page: F4.    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.  - RLD, 12/09


Some Meditations For Saints

Thoughts by R. DeWitt, 4/08

[Something here to think about, especially for those real believers who can relate a "Report Card" to their school days, when teachers sent ratings home to parents. The "born again" Christians might want to rate themselves now as to how God may see us in a day to come, at the "judgment seat of Christ" in Heaven (though at best we ought to rate ourselves as failures and not worthy of rewards). There seems to be four areas which are significant. Will the ratings in these areas be like unto what God speaks about: A."an excellent spirit"; B."a good report"; C."kept the Word"; D."lukewarm ...neither cold nor hot"; E."some to dishonor"?]

[ ]  How one regards the Son of God (crown of life? -James 1:12) - which speaks of affection and devotion, and enduring faithfully for His Name's sake through all circumstances. It is worship and homage to Him. Are we enjoying communion with our precious Savior, praising Him, yielding to Him and His will, and "bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ" (2 Cor.10:5)?  How much do we care?

[ ]  How one regards the Word of God (crown of glory? - 1 Pet.5:2-4) - which surely
suggests obedience and conformity, and esteeming "all the counsel of God" (Acts 20:27), "rightly dividing the Word of truth" (2 Tim.2:15); keeping and ministering His Word, and thus "being examples to the flock" (1 Pet. 5:3). It is a servant character in humility. Do we hold to the truth, and "feed the flock" the good Word, or are we choosing what we like to think? How much do we care?

[ ]  How one regards the testimony of God (crown of righteousness? - 2 Tim.4:7-8) 
- speaking of honor and service for the Lord. It is associated with the Lord's glory, a 
witness to all, the church and unity, obedience, keeping the faith fervently; and is a  heart for His coming. Are we honoring the Lord in the testimony to follow His Word, and that "in all things He might have the preeminence" (Col.1:18); or are we following the world, religious ideas, innovations, and our own flesh? How much do we care?

[ ]  How one regards the people of God (crown of rejoicing? - 1 Thess.2:19-20) 
- which seems in regard to care and blessing for all, and a heart for the good of souls (bringing them into "the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ"). It suggests an appreciation of God's salvation, and a zeal and joy to see souls blessed. Are we also shepherding the flock (1 John 3:16; 3 John 4) and seeking their good, or doing our own thing and pleasing self? How much do we care?

While we must all confess failure in all of the above, is it not a worthy standard for the saints of God?    - RLD:  SS11;  from
