“The conformity to fact or reality; in exact
accordance with that which is, or has been, or shall
be. The truth of history constitutes its whole
value. We rely on the truth of the scriptural
prophecies.” And may we take the liberty of adding:
“Conformity to fact of word, whether written,
spoken, referenced or acted out.” If the truth of
History constitutes its whole value; how much more
so, is the truth of Gods Word to His Church? Editor
From Mr. Webster
Meditating on Truth
In our definitions from Mr. Webster, we could not
help but comment on the statement: “The truth of
history constitutes its whole value.” This is a part
of the definition given for the word truth (not the
only definition depending on usage).
Indeed, we would not know much about the truth of
how our nation came to be, if the history we have
documented is untrue. What value would there be for
a history book, where everything recorded in it was
either filled with error, or deliberately changed to
make it say what someone wanted it to say? Thus Mr.
Webster recognized one hundred ninety years ago, the
value of truth to history; that it would have no
value, were it not the truth.
When I sit reading my KJT (King James Translation)
of the Holy Scriptures, I have found myself lately,
meditating on what is said here about truth with
concern to our history. How can we not apply the
import of this view to the veracity of the truth in
the translation of the Holy Scriptures? How could we
sit in comfort of a peaceful mind, lest we certainly
knew we were reading the truth? Editor

"Except the Lord build the
house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord
keep the city, the watchman waketh in vain." (Psalms
Questions come and go about
how to build the church. Maybe we ought to update our
buildings, maybe we ought to get something in the church to
keep our children entertained, or maybe we ought to start
youth camps, ball teams, special musical programs that will
entice people to come to church and last of all, let us quit
preaching the truth because it is so offensive to those in
the world. David says; "Except the Lord build the house." It
seems as if maybe we ought to quit trying to build the
house, because it is the Lord`s house. I think it is time
for us to quit trying to do the Lord`s work and confine our
work to what the Lord would have us to do. I think what we
need in the church is more of what we already have. We need
to pray for God`s blessing upon the church, pray that the
Lord would send his Spirit in a powerful way and open up the
heart that we feel more of a need to see the Lord, and that
our spirit might be revived to receive that which is being
preached unto us. One of the disciples said, "Lord I
believe, help thou my unbelief."

Flee for Refuge to Jesus; lay hold on the hope which
IS set before us. Heb. 6:17-20 -
1. It is immutability and 2. An Oath. – God cannot
DIE, DENY or LIE. Heb. 6:17-20
“Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto
the heirs of promise the immutability of his
counsel, confirmed it by an oath: :18
That by two immutable things, in which it was
impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong
consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold
upon the hope set before us: :19 Which
hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and
stedfast, and which entereth into that within the
veil; :20 Whither the forerunner is for
us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever
after the order of Melchisedec."
Heb. 5, 6, 7. HIGH PRIEST OF PEACE.

Propaganda is an example of how people can make a bad idea
• Propaganda is when folks tell you lies to get you to
believe what they say is the truth.
• Propaganda is easy to spread, cause all you need to tell
them is how the “big one” won't get away.
• Propaganda is fun to spread; because you get to talk
people into blaming somebody you don't like, for doing all
the bad things you are doing.
Propaganda can make you feel good about yourself for awhile,
til the truth catches up to you.
• Propaganda always tells you how good it can be tomorrow,
if you will help do some things that are wrong today.
• The apostle Paul was a propagandist; which was a good
thing, when there was only one version of the truth.
Propaganda: “Truth is what I can get you to believe.”
The Gospel Commission
Beyond the O.T. Laws of Moses, I herein write with
reference to the N.T. GOSPEL COMMISSIONS as
that of JESUS CHRIST, found mainly in Matt. Mark,
Luke & John, as JOHN THE BAPTIST was the first
NOTABLE N.T. Baptist Preacher, as Jesus even
recorded about him as being of the greatest in
Matt. 11:11. So. Herein we learn that Jesus was
FIRST with this ministry in Matt. 4:22—25 teaching
and operating as a GREAT natural PHYSICIAN, for
folks with natural illnesses, then comes the SERMON
ON THE MOUNT which becomes very SPIRITUAL in Matt.
5, 6, 7. In Matt. 10:1 Jesus called the 12
Then finally comes
the Apostle Paul writing mainly to & for us
GENTILES, being called in translation from
anti-to-pro., from “Saul” to “Paul” in Acts 8
& 9, then writing 14 of the 27 Books of the N.T.
Then the 22 chapters of Revelation were written
by the Apostle John, as with a special calling,
and he began warning and advising us of the END
TIME and the final 2nd Coming of Jesus Christ.
You will notice each minister had a special
technique, even Jesus employed many times that
of Parables, which teaches PRINCIPLES beyond
just the literary Word.
