Review: A Sower went Forth

A Sower went Forth
A Sower went Forth by Martha Palmer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the testimony of Ralph Palmer. He is not a preacher. He was very sick but when a minister talk to him about his soul he got saved and his health got better. He dedicated his life to serving God. Later her backsled and grew cold in his Christian walk As he drifted away from God and from church he became sick again. It was like God’s chastening. I wonder if he had something like a near-death experience during this 2nd sickness. His wife reports him seeing awful scenes about his lost co-workers. Ralph Palmer was healed – not only if his sickness but also of his backsliding. When he rededicated his life to Christ he got a burden for lost souls. So he started giving out gospel tracts – little flyers or brochures pointing out how to become a believer in Jesus Christ. He wanted his fellow people to know how they can be saved from sin. Ralph Palmer and his wife started traveling the country in a camper to distribute gospel tracts everywhere. He passed out roughly 600,000 tracts per year. Later on he also started a gospel sign ministry making billboards with reflective lettering that showed salvation scriptures beside the highways. The book tells the story of the Palmer’s gospel tract ministry and shares some of the stories and events from the many responses they got from the gospel tract work. God certainly blessed their work in going out to make known the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Review: The Secret File on John Birch

Filed under UncategorizedShare!  

The Secret File on John Birch
The Secret File on John Birch by James Hefley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

An excellently researched book outlining the ministry and later military carreer of John Birch. A young preacher from Macon, Georgia becomes an outstanding missionary to China. As Word War II makes it hard for missionaries to stay in China, John refuses to leave but joins the military instead. It is noteworthy that John continued preaching, witnesing, giving out tracts while being an officer in the Army Air Force working with the Flying Tigers. This is the real America unlike today where soldiers are required to hush about their faith or get courtmartialed if the start witnessing to local Muslims in Afghanistan or Iraq.

Review: Prophecy Study Bible-KJV

Filed under UncategorizedShare!  

Prophecy Study Bible-KJV
Prophecy Study Bible-KJV by Tim LaHaye
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I like this Bible because of its up-to-date study tools such as maps, lists and diagrams. The emphasis in this Bible is on explaining prophetic scriptures dealing with the Lord’s return and the re-establishment of Israel. It follows a consistent dispensational, premillenial course meaning that we believe that Jesus will return to get us out of here before a time of great tribulation and before the 1000 year reign mentioned in Revelation. Dispensationalism simply means that things are not uniformly the same from Genesis to Revelation but that God’s redemptive work gradually unfolds within different eras of time. After the fall God has progressively revealed his work of redemption until the fulness of time when Jesus came and the age of grace began. And it will end with the fulness of the Gentiles (non-Jewish people) when the Lord will catch the remaining believers up to be with Him. This Bible also throws a critical light on Russia and the European Union and their potential role in waging war against God’s people. For example, Revelation 13 points to a revived Roman empire. This time an empire of commerce and secularism. This chapter also points at a one world economic system, gadgets with artificial intelligence, a chip implant for man to be connected to the world system. We see how today’s new digital technology could come into the hands of the antichrist who will abuse it to enforce mandatory worship of the devil exclude those from the economy and the supply chains who still worship Jesus.

Review: American Dictionary of the English Language

Filed under UncategorizedShare!  

American Dictionary of the English Language
American Dictionary of the English Language by Noah Webster
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I certainly haven’t read all of the dictionary cover to cover but for over a decade this is a reference that I use frequently in order to find the meaning of words. I often catch myself using words but when I ask myself what that one word means I don’t have words to describe it. Then I usually get my 1828 Webster’s to get a good grasp of the word. Whether in sermon preparation, blogging, essay writing this dictionary gives word definitions based on a Christian worldview. Noah Webster was an American Christian educator. Back then schools in America practiced God-centered education because they rejected the notion of secular humanism. Secular humanism is a 19th century European import and utterly un-American. I also have this dictionary as a free app on my smartphone so I don’t have to carry this roughly 4 pound huge book with me.
A preacher once said that the best books a Christian and esp. a preacher needs to study is a King James Bible, a Strong’s concordance and an 1828 Webster’s dictionary. The concordance locates the scriptures and the dictionary defines the words of scripture. Webster even includes the chapter and verse references in the Bible. To these books the preacher recommended I would only add a good old-fashioned hymn book because the old hymns contained a lot of doctrinal truth that in many of the modern worship songs cannot be found.
