Across the country and from many overseas, we consistently hear from folks that have 'seen the light' based on Acts 26:18 - To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.
These folks have seen the joys of the Risen Saviour by rightly dividing their King James Bible and believing all the Epistles written by Paul are written TO us today and that the rest of the KJB is written FOR us. We do not negate or throw out any of the KJB; however, we know that Romans to Philemon is TO us as Gentiles and to follow the risen Saviour we must follow what Paul teaches. Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you. Philippians 4:9
These are people who have had "Paul and his writings about the Risen Saviour" 'enter' into their lives. In other words, their lives have changed on the 'outside' so folks truly see a 'real and sincere' Christian. I Thessalonians 1:9,10 - For they themselves shew of us what manner of entering in we had unto you, and how ye turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God; And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.
Hello Pastor Mike,
Enjoyed the class wed night. I have been listening to your Podcasts for a while now. I am not always at home when your live class is on. My work is changing though so I hope to be on more often.
I started listening because I started questioning a lot of things starting to happen at my church at the time. I have always enjoyed studying the Bible but until I started learning right division I always struggled getting everything to fit or make sense. Anyway I started helping the Pastor at our church and he asked me if I would teach Sunday School. He wanted us to teach from the popular Christian books. I used a couple but it just wasn't right. So I got his approval to do a class on faith but, I only wanted to use the Bible.
That's when my eyes opened. My class grew from 6 to 18. Not saying that to brag. It was God's word that these folks were hungry for. I was so excited that people were so hungry for the word. the more I studied the more I learned about Paul, rightly dividing, the dispensations, etc.
Well you probably know the rest of the story. The Pastor and a couple of the elders didn't really like it. And when several people wanted to go back to KJB because they saw what was missing from their Bibles it got worse. So all of a sudden they decided they wanted to get rid of Sunday School so they could have a refreshment time in the morning.
So long story short I did what Paul said to do. I separated myself and my family from the church. It is frustrating because a lot of the folks at the church were beginning to learn things that they hadn't seen in 20 yrs or more of going to church. Several noticed their Bible did not say what my KJB said. I had three people in the first month go buy KJB"s. I know I was that way.
We tried doing a home study with a few of the folk but, they just couldn't get over not being in a church building or atmosphere I guess. So my wife and I study on our own and listen to teaching via the Pocasts. We loved your series on Paul's Manner of life. We have been looking for others to study with but haven't had any luck. However I am more at peace and comfortable with my walk with the Lord than I have ever been.
I cant wait to get into the " Word " and study each and everyday ! When I started the class on Faith a lot of things came to light and that is also when I was drawn back to KJB and what a difference it has made! I am learning more each and everyday and my life has changed tremendously. Anyway - that is a little about me, I do enjoy your teaching and rely on the Podcasts a lot because of my work schedule; I am not always available for the live class. I will stop in as I can and keep you in our prayers.
Appreciate what your doing! Hope Your feeling better! Please still
send the links for the mesaages you mentioned Wed night, I would like to
listen to those. Have a good week!
