Faith Plus Nothing

Happy New Year 2024!

Moving forward into 2024 with grateful hearts…

We miss Les & Iris very much, as many of you do, but we can be grateful for the many years we had with them and the lessons they shared. Les left a beautiful legacy, and we remain devoted to ensuring the message continues to reach as many as possible. As always, the end of the year means new television contracts. Some of you may have already noticed that Circle TV has been canceled as of 12/31/23 which was a network decision and out of our control. We also had some changes with some smaller market radio and local programming. We always strive to broaden our coverage as well, recently acquiring time on both FMC and News Nation. All these things made possible by you, the viewer. To quote Les “How we praise the Lord for laying on your hearts what to give and your obedience to do that. Please never apologize, for a small gift, with our Awesome God, the little is much.” (July - August - Sept 2007 Newsletter)

Look for the program now on the following stations:

FMC on DirecTV ch 314, Dish Network ch 387, and various cable networks at 7 am Eastern, Monday – Friday.

Please let us know if you need a year end statement for your 2023 donations and we will get it mailed out for you. The end of the year is a very busy time in the office so please be patient and we will handle everything as quickly as we can. Last year was full of ups and downs but the Lord has been so good to us. We have been so blessed by all the prayers, cards, and kind words that we have received. Thank you again for your generosity and continued faithfulness over the years. Our prayer this year, as has been in years past, is that the ministry continues to grow, and the Word reaches as many people as possible and that many will come to know the Grace of God. As Paul states in Romans 10: 17 & 18 “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world.

A Simple Principle in Bible Study

When we compare the statement, I Peter 1:10 with the statement in Ephesians 3:9, we at once see the importance of obeying II Timothy 2:15. “Rightly Dividing the Word of truth.” We are told in I Peter 1:10 that Israel’s prophets foretold the sufferings and glory of Christ. In Ephesians 3:9 we are told that the “dispensation of the mystery” and the “unsearchable riches of Christ” were hid in God and not made known to Israel’s prophets. All through the Book of Acts and through the Epistles of Peter, Paul, James, and John we must differentiate between that which Israel’s prophets foretold would come to pass and that which none of them even hinted would come to pass: “not made known to the sons of men in other ages”; “hidden from generations.” Colossians 1:25 and 26. Ephesians 3:3 to 5.

If there has been no change in God’s program since the Epistles were written to the Ephesians and the Colossians, then this is still the Dispensation of the Mystery, which means the Dispensation of that which had been a Mystery until it was revealed by the glorified Christ to and through His Apostle Paul. For the students of the Word of God, for the members of the Church which is the Body of Christ, there should be nothing mysterious, mystical or hidden concerning the dispensation of grace and the mutual inheritance of the Head and members of the Body, made alive together, seated together in the highest heavenlies, constituting the One New Man which God is now making, while His program and purpose concerning Israel have been temporarily abandoned. Ephesians 1:9 to 22; Ephesians 2:4-17. Aside from the Divine preservation of Israel in the world today God has suspended His covenants and promises with Israel and the other nations until He shall have accomplished that which He purposed in Christ Jesus ages before He made any covenants, concerning His Nation and their land of promise. II Timothy 1:9; Ephesians 3:11.

Israel’s hope is identified with the sufferings and glory of Christ foretold by Israel’s prophets. That hope will be realized when Christ shall be the Son of man on the throne of His glory. Matthew 25:31. There the twelve apostles will be seated with Him. Matthew 19:28. The Son of man is coming in power and great glory, Luke 21:27 to 31.   He will bring about the restitution of all things. Acts 3:21 Moses, Samuel, and all the prophets, spoke of “these days.” Acts 3:24. “These days” were promised in the covenants. Acts 3:25. At that time Christ will govern from David’s throne. Isaiah 9:6 and 7.

“These days” of grace, “these days” of the Body of Christ, are not “these days” of Israel’s hope, foretold by Moses, Samuel, and others. “These days” were foreordained before the foundation of the world, but not foretold by Israel’s prophets.

None of the twelve apostles, in their “Acts” ministry, spoke of these days; They referred to a hope and blessings promised by the pen of David, Joel, Amos, Moses, Samuel, and others. Let us be careful not to confuse prophetic promises with the mystery. Let us not confuse the hope of the Body of Christ with Israel’s hope. (by J. C. O'Hair, August 1935, from the January - February - March 2008 Newsletter)
