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.
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.
This will give you an overview of church history. And it will silence a lot of the myths that are out there. You always thought that Baptists are Protestants? That simply is not so. This book makes the point that there were churches with Baptist beliefs from the time of Christ till today. Baptists are not the product of the Reformation as is often taught. There were Baptists before the reformation. It is true that they did not call themselves Baptists. They did not make this their prided name tag. They simply wanted to be New Testament Christians. They mostly go their names from their enemies who tried to name them after a leader or outstanding preacher. The book outlines the awful persecution of Baptists throughout the ages. They were considered the heretics throughout the Dark Ages because their Bible beliefs in the New Birth and a saved church membership with believer’s baptism conflicted with the secular-religious authorities back then. It makes you appreciate the liberty we have today which once again is under attack.
Are all these fouled-up antichristian activist Supreme Court decisions really the law of the land as some claim? I did some research in the writings of the late constitutionalist Congressman Larry McDonald. Listen to this:
Sorry for the cold. The squeaky chair is courtesy of Baymont Inn in McDonough, GA where this was recorded. I have no studio.
It is the job of the Senate to see to it that a more conservative judge like Neil Gorsuch fills the place of Justice Antonin Scalia. They liberals are due to take a heavy loss. We cannot surrender the Constitution to atheists, secular humanists and would-be Europeans who want to undo America.
