Preface to the Preface:

Since 1973, I have had but one mission … to bring honor and glory to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  I will be with them, that will say: “Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.” [Revelation 5:13b]

Over the years I have written books. Here are nine books written for those who live in the 21st century:

1. Messages from The Messenger

This book has thirty-one "end of the age" messages for the 21st century believer in Jesus Christ. 

2. The Gospel of John

This book came from the studies in the Gospel according to John taught at Old Paths Baptist Mission.

3. The First Epistle of Peter

This book came from the studies in the First Epistle of Peter taught at Old Paths Baptist Mission.

4. The Book of Micah

This book came from the studies in the Old Testament book of Micah taught at Old Paths Baptist Mission.

5. The Things Revealed Belong Unto Us

It was my intention to place into this book the things that belong unto us, but we have refused to accept and to obey.

6. Thy Kingdom Come

In this book are the things that are future, and will come to pass.  

7. The Great Global Cooling

In these times, which we all live in, we see a great global cooling phenomenon occurring right before our very eyes.  We might even say: These times are the times of the great freeze

8. The Perfect Government

Psalm 50:22-23

“Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver. Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth his conversation aright will I shew the salvation of God.”

This message was written to those who have forgotten God.

9. Psalm 74—The Apple of His Eye

The book of Psalms is where a person can turn to in the time of their trouble and get help from God. 

There are one hundred and fifty psalms in the Bible and these psalms are music for the soul of man.

Now, in the last psalm, and in the last verse of this psalm, we have the purpose given by God for all men: MEN ARE TO PRAISE GOD!

“Let everything that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD.” [Psalm 150:6] 

This is the TOP STEP for Man. Praise ye the LORD!
