Update Rhyli Mason: First, we must make corrections to the first two reports on Rhyli: she has dark brown eyes instead of blue; and, mother Brittany was ask to choose between CPS foster home or paternal grandfather Nick Mason, not in the past week, rather she was asked several days before they delivered Rhyli to Nick. Readers will recall that, between the two, she had said she preferred a foster home to Nick.
—— Brittany’s great aunt suggested CPS might use this against her, intimating she did not want Rhyli back at all or with María. This is a good point; so, we instructed Brittany: if CPS again asks limited contrary choices, she is to respond with only her true choice, “I prefer Rhyli be returned to me or my mother. I am against any other choices.”
—— This past week a video, “Justice for Rhyli,” was put together showing various outings, etc. with Rhyli and her family: it proves her to have been and is a happy, healthy child, plus a brief about what CPS has done to her and the family. It was posted to Face Book, where it generated over 8000 comments and untold hits: this is considered having gone viral on Face Book.
—— Rhyli’s paternal grandmother, Maxine, put together a series of videos taken over Rhyli’s four years. María will urge Maxine to post the video to YouTube. If it goes viral there, it not only might get a million or more hits, it also WOULD be picked up by major network news stations. YouTube viral videos usually end up being reported by those news agencies: exactly what we need to bring public pressure onto CPS.
—— Further, Rhyli’s maternal grandmother, María, has been made aware of a Juvenile Justice agency. As soon as she has the particulars on this resource, she will be giving them a call about possible legal representation. As for her client that was going to call her attorney brother, she has not heard back at this time.
Interesting Tidbit: The topic today provides definitions in the various ancient languages, including English, of the relevant subject words. Then, we noticed a scripture about doing “alms” (Matt. 6:1-4). Strictly out of curiosity, we looked up definitions as we did for this week’s topic words. The result was further proof of why we should refer to original Bible tongues on key words: carefully read the definitions from three available sources below:
(MSWord Thesaurus) — a load, a long distance, a long time ago, all your own, almost certainly, and so forth
(Webster’s Dict.) — pity, money, food, clothes, etc. given to poor people, a deed of mercy
(Greek, ancient combo of two words) — compassionateness for the poor, beneficence or a benefaction (support, aid), compassion– human or divine, espec. active– tender mercy.
—— It is evident that the MSWord Thesaurus meanings, and there were many more than shown above, were clearly unrelated to the Bible’s intent and use. “All your own” and “Almost certainly” could suggest or imply that this might be a verse for Sunday’s use when preaching prosperity: combining scripture to say, “Earth’s riches are reserved for God’s people, for the riches are almost certainly all their own today.” One might say that some of the modern meanings would not apply, such as “a long way.” Well, that certainly did not stop Sunday from skewing God’s true intent for Sabbath.
—— Nevertheless, despite other scripture advising riches being reserved for us in the new earth, not here and now; and, despite Matthew’s implication of gifts or help for the poor– although the passage is not specific in itself but the word in Greek makes the verses specific– it would make no difference to Sunday. It never has bothered them to put man’s spin on God’s Word, either by the use of ancient or modern definitions or even using both in order to achieve Satan’s purpose.
—— RDK often refers to the Bible’s original languages in order to be certain of God’s intent, meaning and opinion, rather than man’s view that, more often than not, greatly differs with God. There absolutely are no circumstances in which God or His Words would ever change: that includes definitions and uses of specific, topical words. We have even heard Sunday say that definitions are different today than yesterday, in a manner implying that what matters is how the words are defined today.
——Wisdom: to use the modern to define the ancient will not always work toward God’s opinion and use; but it certainly makes it easy for Sunday to twist God’s Truth to fit what people “want to hear:” those smooth words allowing them to continue in sin as do the filthy of the world. Christ’s remnants are “in the world but not of it;” thus according to our Lord, we have an understanding of all things.
—— A prime, critical example of twisting to suit Satan’s goals was a point-in-fact delivered in a recent Extra Oil about God’s Sabbath: Sunday suddenly teaching it twisted today in order to justify uniting Saturday and Sunday, good with evil, God with Satan— “Sabbath means rest only; so we are to gather for worship on Sunday. Even the Apostles met on Sunday.”
—— RDK research found in every case, except two, the Biblical use of “sabbath” meant far more than just “rest:” the two exceptions were how the holy Sabbath relates to the planet itself and the sick. Otherwise, “sabbath” includes all of the things God said were to be done on His seventh day: note “all,” for the word itself certainly does not limit this holy day exclusively for resting our flesh bodies.
—— As for the Apostles, they did NOT meet on Sunday for worship; they met to conduct church business, collect tithes– both of which were never done on Sabbath day– and to share a meal while socializing with one another; especially when one of the traveling Apostles happened to be in town. They always worshiped and taught, visited and healed, fed and clothed and housed the poor, and spent time with their families on God’s Sabbath: as God commanded and Jesus did, so must we.

Topic: Paraphrased Summary–’Fools’ Verses – references follow text below
—— God’s Word has taught that we should call no man or woman a fool; with few exceptions, only God has that right based on His judgment. Scriptures below provide a few reasons why we should not yet, on the other hand, why the remnant may call themselves a fool, while God’s anointed prophets may do the same and call others a fool or foolish when warranted by what a person has done or said. After all, it is the prophets’ job to not only interpret and teach God’s prophecies but also to warn those in sin.
—— Some acts of calling someone a fool or foolish end up making the speaker a liar; such as when Laban accused Jacob of being both a thief and, as such, a fool for having stolen his images (icons) and fleeing. Laban then checked every tent, including the tent of Jacob’s wife Rachael; Laban’s daughter Rachel had taken the icons then hid them in the seat upon which she sat when he entered. To prevent Laban from checking her chair, she lied about being in the way of a woman (menstrual). Jacob did not know she had the icons thus chastised Laban for falsely accusing him when Laban could find no proof he had stolen anything of Laban’s. Not only was Laban a fool, but for the sin of lying, so was Rachael a fool.
—— In the case of Miriam and Aaron, who spoke against Moses because he married an Ethiopian, Miriam alone suffered God’s greater punishment; likely because women tend to be the gender that often gossips, sometimes malicious and other times outright lies. God healed Miriam of the leprosy He put upon her only after Aaron suffered the humiliation of having repeated the gossip and admitting their sin to Moses– instead of God– saying of themselves that they had done foolishly. Here a sinner called himself and Miriam and their sin foolish, which admission is a good thing before God; the sin was to speak ill of or lie about another person.
——God called the Jews a foolish people when they got deep into idolatry and possessed pagan idols and icons. As far as God was concerned, that was to put “strange gods” before, in front of, God’s face and follow their directives instead of God’s and/or mix their ways with His; like thumbing their nose at God, a mockery of their Creator who had set them free: a violation of His third and fourth Precepts.
—— We find, however, Samuel called king Saul foolish for not having followed the Lord’s command. Samuel was God’s anointed from birth to eventually become Israel’s anointed king, therefore Samuel had right to chastise the very king he had appointed then anointed to replace his rule over Israel; much like a parent can call their child foolish when they do or say things they should not do or say before God. Others we know are anointed would be God’s prophets in each age: these also may chastise and call a fool those who defy and/or deny God and/or Christ or God’s Law or for any of the reasons found in the scriptures listed below.
—— When Saul wanted David to return home, Saul called himself a fool for having been the cause of David leaving; calling David son because he was married to Saul’s daughter. We should heed God’s advice to parents, “Anger not thy child.” By this He meant do not anger by unfairness or false complaints or charges or unjust punishments.
—— We also should not anger our grown children by the same reasons or for attempting to tell them what to do and how to do it: once grown, our status becomes that of an advisor but only if asked. It is not a parent’s right to even check to learn if their child followed the advice: it should be given as a gift with no expectations. David had a wife, then took two more wives after marrying Saul’s daughter: that was not Saul’s issue.
— There is death also to consider: king David asked if Abner had died as a fool dies, likely meaning either having done something risky or criminal and against God. While Abner had killed Joab’s brother during a war, it was justified, but later was killed by Joab; whom king David did not justify. Instead, he instructed the people and Joab to mourn Abner whom he called a great man. The Bible later advises that to die in Christ is everlasting life; the other side of that coin being to die a fool is eternal death.
—— Jesus told us that to say to another, “You fool,” has put his- or her- self in danger of hell fire; which is beyond the danger of judgment or being taken before the council, something like a court of law with twelve jurors rendering judgment. Think of it like the board game Monopoly®: the loser passes go, does not collect $100 and goes straight to jail. In this case, the person skips judgment and sentencing to go straight to the first and second deaths simultaneously. “Hell fire” refers to the “pit of fire and brimstone,” the permanent grave from which one will never rise to live again, even for a brief period of time. Yes, a common grave that follows Revelation’s second resurrection.
—— We are shown Miriam and Aaron. While they did not call Moses a fool to his face, they were punished but not healed until they took the proper steps of repentance. The act was the same as saying to Moses’ face, “You fool.” They were healed, or saved from “hell fire,” because they humbled themselves: went to Moses and admitted their folly.
—— We may understand by this why Jesus said “in danger of,” which means “hell fire” can be avoided, if the proper atonement steps are taken in the proper order: admit the sin to its victim, ask for his or her forgiveness, then ask the Lord for His forgiveness. Christ confirmed hell fire when He said, “He who hears me but does not heed is a foolish man who will fall, and great his fall will be.”
—— The final step to avoiding hell fire is to “go and sin no more;” do not again call anyone a fool or the equivalent thereof indicated in the definitions of ‘fool’ or fail to heed Christ’s words; else the speaker might be the bigger fool facing God and in danger of hell fire. The exception is a person truly an anointed prophet of God. You will know them by God and Christ’s testimony they preach and prophecy they interpret and teach, plus God’s Law they live and teach others to do the same. There is no other way to identify God’s prophets, for they are not likely to say or write, “I am a prophet of God.” We recognize them by the Truth they live and teach: it is in perfect harmony with God’s Word. If you are compelled to ask him or her if a prophet, then he or she might be a prophet of God.
—— We have covered very little of the scripture bibliography below: God wants each reader to look up all of them that each might gain even more insight and understanding about saying of or calling someone a fool or foolish. Do not misunderstand, however. It is nothing to call an act or thing or place foolish but never a person: i.e. going out at night in this part of town is foolish; OR jumping off a cliff is foolishness, even if there is water at the bottom; OR deliberately drinking poison is about as foolhardy as it gets.
—— Notice in those examples two things are missing: 1. The word “you,” the proverbial smoking gun– the pointing finger; and, 2. A person’s name. Make it about the act, not a person; the location, not a person; the thing, not a person. Basically, God is saying “do not point fingers, and never use that smoking gun again.” Besides, point your finger at another and there will be three pointing back at you: i.e. call a fool, be a bigger fool.

Closing Words: We should be a fool; a fool for God and Christ only; a fool to keep proclaiming His Word, a fool spreading prophecy: either one or all is to be a fool only in the eyes of unbelievers, the wicked and filthy. Those gifted with prophecy should be the fool whose visions shake the world; no matter how crazy the Prophet’s words might seem to the wicked. We should never want to be the fool who is oblivious to God’s Word, His Law, and His prophecies; only believing what man teaches without studying on our own with the Spirit or, at the least knowing our teacher is truly anointed. Never be without His wisdom and knowledge, or considered stupid for not learning and living His Law to the letter, not missing the dot over each i and the cross of every T.
—— “Our God is bigger, Our God is able!” HE IS. Remember God’s promises– never forget–keep the faith in God’s assurances and obey Him from a heart of love. We are Satan’s prey, always have been; so do not fall into fear or deceit thus lose God’s Seal, thereby changing your Seal of Victory– blessed to have no part in the second resurrection– to that of Satan’s victim Marked Twice Dead for the second resurrection.
—— Share our Oils with everyone: none of us can instantly identify the wicked or the lukewarm or cold. We must speak to all who will hear yet, by instruction, must walk away from they who argue God’s Word or express no interest after a second warning. Pray unceasing for Rhyli Mason and her family: Our God is able!
——Keep the faith, Brethren, during this our final exam; stand strong, Obey God and Christ; harm no man or beast; and know Christ said of this era, “I come quickly.” If Sunday confronts you before then, spread your arms wide as you say, “Take your best shot then watch Jesus raise me up just as the Father raised Him. Be warned and repent, for my Lord and Savior comes quickly!”

Prophecy’s Extra Oil 77: What God Says is Famine?
shared by Remnant Doctrine Keepers (RDK)
(c) copyright 2010 Bonita M Quesinberry
CNN reported Sunday news reported, “Government stated recession officially ended in 2009” –(is this a vague way of confirming previous admission that US actually in a severe depression?). Also, during interviews with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria, Sunday 09/18/10, it was pointed out that the US is suffering the highest level of poverty than ever in history: RDK has said it is global and the Bible calls it “famine” in Revelation c.18, which not only accurately describes 9/11 right down to the timing of events that followed the attack but also what other nations would be saying when New York’s Twin Towers, “monument to financial wealth,” collapsed and the Pentagon, “icon to military might,” was struck and famine ensued thereafter.
“Great Babylon” and “that great city” referred to in Rev. c.18 are both Papal Rome and the United States. What happens in the US affects the entire world, an economic and religious fact: all negative events weaken the Vatican’s absolute power over the world today. This is why Satan will never sit on David’s throne or thereafter God’s heavenly throne; neither will his World Church and One World Order reach fullest extents: he would have to take at least David’s throne. He can only “think to do” it: imagine, desire but fruition is impossible by God’s perfect plan for this last era.
Famine: n.1. a) an acute and general shortage of food. b) the time of this. 2. starvation; great hunger. 3. an acute and general lack of anything. — Webster’s New World Dictionary, College Edition, copyright 1962
God’s Word agrees with definition 3 of famine but also says it is a global condition of Laodicea, earth’s last church age; throughout His word and prophecy of these end of days, He warned of unemployment (neither buy nor sell), hunger, homeless, and a total lack of the knowledge of God, lawlessness. All of the above are “an acute and general lack of everything” vital to being alive on this planet.
On the other hand, God Word promised His people and Christ’s sheep that they will lack nothing, for only the wicked will lose everything. What we have may not be the finest shelter due to having lost our home but a roof over our heads nonetheless; it might not be the finest clothes or cars but clothes and transportation of some sort; it might not be the finest cuisines but sustaining food; and it might not be the best job in the world but a job nevertheless; and, we do not lack in the knowledge and wisdom of God. Praise the Lord, for it is only by Him that we have it all.
“People die for lack of knowledge.” God was not talking about knowledge gained from man’s schools, universities, and Jesus made it clear that it would not come from man’s religious seminaries; in other verses He man’s education results in, “Knowledge that slays.” Having the knowledge of God “saves.”
Members might recall when RDK posted an excerpt from “Bind Up the Testimony, Seal the Law” –chapter “Laodicea” wherein the Holy Spirit interpreted Revelation c.18: link posted below.** As RDK members know, it takes the whole of the Bible to interpret the whole of The Revelation. “Bind Up. . .” had been written and its draft automatically copyright protected in 1998 then published in 2003.
God, through the paraphrased chapter, predicted global famine and economic collapse that would begin in the United States and spread worldwide. Immediate aftermath of 9/11: banks stopped making loans, companies stopped hiring, stock markets crashed, thus unemployment, hunger and homeless rose each year since, until it was so big, compounded by small companies going under, that government had to report but made light of it. It had spread around the world.
**After relentlessly searching all of our websites for the “Laodicea” excerpt Sunday afternoon, only to find it missing from every website, we came upon a startling discovery when finally turning to Earthlink’s search engine (powered by Google) to find all “articles about 9/11 by bonnieq” and later tried key works Twin Towers, Pentagon.
What first came up for mentions of 9/11 by BonnieQ indicated 17 articles but showed none on the page except one in a block with a link but a statement in second block said, “The links will not take anyone to the articles. It can be accessed only through 1) US Military or 2. another agency; but did not include their links. We went back to search engines Sunday night and, while many of her articles came up, none included the 17. Interestingly, what we found earlier in the day (US Military) never came up again: no matter how many times we tried using the same initial search.
Sisters Tammy (Fla) and Maria (OR) later did a search using the same phrase but never got the above page, instead they got the same later finds by RDK. It did not occur to us the first time that the page would be removed from the Internet within hours or we would have made note of the URL and copied the data. Tammy expressed her fear that BonnieQ would be one of the first arrested in the Blue Law sweep rapidly coming: Fear Not!
It would seem Satan and US government do not want spiritual truth about 9/11 available to anyone; which also conforms to Vatican demands. This is not at all surprising, neither was it surprising when we could not find the same notice the second time around: apparently even BonnieQ’s computer is Fed monitored when online. They not only removed the page to RDK but to anyone making a similar search, effectively making RDK and BonnieQ liars in the eyes of the world at large. Only true brethren know we are Truth Speakers.
Not only have they censored God but also silenced His global truth speakers and few prophets: Satan’s most desired wish in this age. We were instantly reminded of Sister Tammy’s recent research revealing that Google is now partnered with the Federal Government to police and remove disagreeable and/or dangerous websites and/or articles that refer to issues affecting the world, religious or catastrophic: i.e. terrorist sites and supporter sites, government protestor sites, sites that disagree with the World church (i.e. RDK, SDA sites separated from the General and Local Conferences) and sites that disagree with global policies of religion and Sunday Blue Laws, child pornography sites, sexual solicitation sites, and so forth.
The final intent is to Federally control the Internet and reduce it to about 15 preferred/controlled sites and users, and require all users to have the more costly high speed service, which rules out all low income users of every ilk. We gladly would post the excerpt anew, today, had we not lost all our documents stored in MSWord when our computer crashed, which is how we copied and posted it originally: more evidence of Satan attempting to silence Truth.
We did find only one post related to Laodicea but it was another portion of this era’s prophecy in Revelation. IF MSWord Pad is cooperative, we will attempt to reproduce the 9/11 part of the Laodicea chapter from the book and post it next Sabbath Eve, 01 October.
All we can suggest for now is that Bind Up the Testimony, Seal the Law is still available through Amazon.com; just be sure to order “used” but you will receive a new copy. Amazon sells books for less than retail but ordering a used copy is about 20% or more off Amazon’s discount price: its cheaper than even the writer can get from the book’s publisher: in reality the writer earns nothing and that is great. After all, the market is limited to those whom the Holy Spirit wants to have a copy.
** RDK Caution: please do not refer to Bonita M Quesinberry as the author of “Bind Up. . .”, as the book clearly states on its cover that she only “arranged and paraphrased” scriptures, which does not make her the author, only the pen (“God’s mouth is the pen of a willing writer” – Psalm). God is the great Author of His Word, whether in Ancient Hebrew or AKJV Old English or paraphrased as we speak today.
It was not until 2008 that our US government said we and the world were in a severe recession that began in that year when unemployment was reaching 15-million and millions of homes across the nation were in foreclosure with millions more expected. Then we began hearing of similar events in other countries. It was not until 2009 their financial experts finally admitted it began at 9/11 and that, truly, we were in a major depression as opposed to a recession.
They even admitted that it is too late to turn it all around, it is too far-gone: which agrees with prophecy. In 2008, RKD began the Extra Oil weekly posts to inform members what was and is happening in the world due to very few facts being in the news: economy, wars, natural events such as earthquakes, volcanoes and storms of every ilk, lawlessness; this so our members may “see” time progress in Laodicea: critical to knowing how close we are to Christ’s return.
RDK then reported that the Holy Spirit had given a time span two years in advance (just as Daniel was given), season as it were, and year in which Christ will return: “mid-October to mid-November 2011.” AKJV Hebrews tells us Christ will not be late. Please note, in accordance with scripture, RDK was not given a specific “day and hour,” because “no man knows the day and hour, not even the Son; only the Father.”
The “season” is the last three Jewish festivals of harvest ordinances, each sequentially relating to 1. birth (planting), 2. death (first harvest), and 3.resurrection (final harvest bearing good seeds): 1-3 represent Christ’s life 1-3 all represent His church phases ending with #3 representative of Messiah’s return to take up His sheep and God’s people (purified seeds that will populate Christ’s restored earthly kingdom).
The 2011 season represents resurrection and claiming of a just people, both from the living (Elect) and the dead, while the wicked dead remain in their graves and the wicked living die instantly at the brightness of Christ’s coming (“lie dead from one end of earth to the other end”). The year is not in the Bible, although Bible clues to determine the year were not provided but neither was gaining the wisdom forbidden anywhere in the Bible; instead it is revealed only by the Holy Spirit and to whom at His discretion: the Spirit knows who are God’s anointed prophets in any age: “God does nothing that He does not first tell His prophets.”
The end will not come, however, until the Holy Spirit has told God’s prophets when it will occur, absent the day and hour, and are directed to warn Christ’s small flocks. The prophets have been told and they have warned all that will hear or read and heed. Some have said that a “true” prophet would be accurate to the day and hour, but that would be contrary to what Jesus told us. Even Daniel did not know when Israel’s captivity would end until two years before it ended: even then he not given a specific day and hour, same to be determined by later events such as finally gaining the King’s permits to rebuild as Daniel was instructed.
God said of this Laodicea age, “Let the filthy remain filthy, the wicked remain wicked, and let the righteous remain righteous. Let the blind and deaf remain blind and deaf.” In other words, it is too late for the filthy and wicked; thus, to be given the day and hour in advance would result in Jesus not coming “as a thief in the night” as He predicted the wicked would perceive His arrival because they were not properly purified and prepared. Christ’s sheep are purified and well prepared with lanterns and extra oil with the season/year of His return. We have a 30-day range and that is enough and does represent a final test of patience, trust and devotion.
In an aside, RDK was pleased to view both SDA’s “It Is Written” on TBN last Sunday and to find the message was about God’s Sabbath of the Fourth Precept; the Truth about that most Holy Day over which Christ also is Lord. We pray this means a change of heart in the General and Local Conferences, that it means they have withdrawn from the World Church; though we do question their presence on TBN and broadcasting on Sunday in accordance with TBN’s practices and Satan’s choice.
Bear in mind, the Sabbath was established on the 7th day (sundown Fri to sundown Sat) of creation for all of mankind; not just for the Jews as some suppose and teach, saying Saturday is for Jews and Sunday is for Christians: such blasphemy is to “take from and add to God’s Word thus bring damnation down upon themselves.”
The Holy Day is the seal we bear with honor. It identifies the God whom we serve and identifies the people whom He has sanctified. We pray that each of you is so sealed. Dear Brethren, please stay strong during these perilous times, be watchful and obedient in all things as God and Jesus require. Time is so very short, only little more than a year away. And, remember, all Bible Lessons and a few book excerpts are at RDK, the URL link noted below.
Much love and prayers in Christ,

“TRUTH GATHERING” REVIEWS:
“Incredibly complete, wonderful, a must!”
Reader Review: Josephine DeHarrold, Bremerton, Washington (10/8/2003) Rating: 5-STARS
I have never found a Topical Bible as thorough as “Truth Gathering.” It is incredibly complete and Ms. Quesinberry’s notes make even the Kings James Version Bible easy to understand. It is wonderful to be able to read EVERY scripture concerning a subject all in one place. “Truth Gathering” is a 5-Star must for every serious Christian seeking only God’s opinion.
“Wow! Oh, my gosh!”
Reader Review: Kim O’Brien- Harper, Washington (10/17/2003) Rating: 5-STARS
When I first thumbed through “Truth Gathering” I must have sounded like a broken record, “Wow! Oh, my gosh! Wow! Oh, wow!” It is an incredible volume of work so complete it astounds me and can’t begin to convey the awe I felt. It definitely reflects Ms. Quesinberry’s 30 years in research and study as well as the five years it took her to write this Topical Bible. It’s unlike any I’ve ever seen! It should be in hardback. I’ve always felt overwhelmed and inadequately equipped to sit down and read the AKJV Bible, because it often is difficult to understand. “Truth Gathering” makes it easy and answers so many questions many people have, including me, about what God really requires of us. I have shown this work to my immediate family members, who also are amazed at the depth of the content and the amount of work that must have gone into something so comprehensive! It is on my coffee table for everyone to see. So, it is prominent in my line of view and available to me on the rare occasions I get to sit down for a few quiet minutes on my couch to relax! I plan on ordering copies for my friends and family and hope many other people do the same.
“I couldn’t put it down!”
Professional Review: Pamela Collins, Alberta, Canada (10/22/03) In the Grip of Grace Ministry. Rating: 5-STARS
I’d been feeling that I needed to work more on my spiritual life. I have been in so much physical and emotional pain and it’s taken it’s toll on me a few times. Still, I hadn’t been doing my devotions like needed and found myself not feeling close to God like I once did. It bothered me; so, I started reading “Truth Gathering.” Oh, I couldn’t put it down! I saw some things in there I had been curious about, like the Dead Sea Scrolls. It was so informative! I had wanted to get the book about the Dead Sea Scrolls; but, the Holy Spirit kept telling me to hold off. Now I see why: “Truth Gathering” answered what I needed to know about them. Oh, how I prayed for the Lord to help me yesterday on the way home. I knew I was going to read more of “Truth Gathering” and even took it with me in the doctor’s office to look through while waiting. What a big ole book of information! I love this book! It’s one that has been needed in the form it’s written!
“This Book is great!”
Reader Review: Lorraine Hale, Arlington, Texas (10/18/03). Rating: 5-STARS
Congratulations and thank you! This book is great and reviews are outstanding.
“ALL God’s Word right there!”
Professional Review: Bob Elmatti, Minister, Florida, (10/28/03). Rating: 5-STARS
Everything I could think of and look up had ALL God’s Word right there for me in this Topical Bible! I plan to do even more study in “Truth Gathering.”

What an impressive study Ms. Quesinberry has done! Just the work in organizing this Topical Bible is to be admired. Very thorough with ALL scriptures provided regarding any subject included in the book! Her concern for mankind and their salvation is obvious. Personally, I feel we are living under grace, if we accept it; therefore, I disagree on some points of interpretation.
“Chocked full of Critical Truths!”

Author, Bonita M. Quesinberry, in her latest offering, “Truth Gathering: Exhaustive Critical-to-Salvation Topical Bible” has blessed not only the body of Christ but anyone who desires to “rightly divide the word of truth.” From “Knowing Your Enemy”, to “The Dead Sea Scrolls,” and far beyond, Quesinberry has put forth God’s word “decently and in order.” Not only is the book chocked full with critical truths, the author tops it off with poetic offerings for “those that endure to the end!” I strongly urge you to add this to your study materials as you embark upon studying “to show thyself approved,” a workman “rightly dividing” the word of God. The scripture comes to mind that, in the end, knowledge would increase. I submit: the truth has always been present, but knowledge, revelation, and understanding of it are presently being increased. This author has been blessed to play a critical role in that prophecy!
