Reproclaiming the Everlasting Gospel

Hello all,

 

I am an ordained Primitive Baptist minister in North Carolina. I recently began to feel a longing and a desire for holiness and Godly living. In the course of my study of the Holy Scriptures I began to sense that the church I have served in, the church of the 21st century, was not the Church of the Lord Jesus.  As I began to pray and study more and more, I began to see that one church is of the bondwoman and the other of the free.

 

Then Isaac Penington happened. I have never encountered Quaker writings before. I was told in the past never to trust the Quakers or read them.  The rationale was that all Quakers were heretical and deist at best! As I read Penington, especially the "Way of Life and Death Made Manifest". I was literally brought to my knees. I didn't sleep that evening. My wife noticed my agitation. I knew then from the Spirit I believe, that I was sold a fake product. The church of this world is the bondwoman. It has all the trappings of true religion, but it lacks the Spirit.  How I served this institution! How I loved being saved in my sin!

 

So now, three incredible days of soul searching and brow beating later, I am writing these lines to you. I know the Lord is making me low in my esteem and teaching me with His Spirit. I desire to be a Real Friend of the Lord Jesus and live in His gospel. I want to preach the Gospel that Christ has set us free from our sins and has come to be our Teacher.

 

What a joy and blessing to get to know Him in all of His offices! Offices that He still works in for His children!

 

I desire help in the Christian life.  I am here to be led and to serve Him who stil teaches and guides by His Spirit inside of us.

Greetings, Bradley,

I am very thankful to hear of your experience of coming to the Living Christ in your heart, and have discovered that he, whom your soul has sought, has always been very near to you, and that you have heard his Voice and have resolved to follow him.

I have uploaded a copy of George Fox's  'To All That Would know the Way to the Kingdom' for your use and hope that you will be edified by reading it.

To All that Would Know the Way to the Kingdom
