Welcome to Grace For All network of bible classes and bible seminar recordings from previous presentations.  Our desire is to preach and teach God’s word in a manner helpful to all. It is only by God’s grace that we are allowed to participate in such an endeavor and we believe everyone is living today in the same grace, given to us by God’s perfect will which came to the earth by the sacrifice of His Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord, when He died for our sins, was buried, and was raised again for our justification. (Rom.4:24,25 & 1 Cor. 15: 3,4) Now that’s a great gospel!

Many men have preached this Amazing message of how God bestowed upon the world this great favor towards us, many men far better at it than I. But, as an old friend once told me, “but they can’t preach a better gospel than You!”

The root of this ministry begins with my salvation: at age 22, lost and seeing myself in need of a Savior, I trusted what Christ had done for me, believing He was the only hope for me (Oct., 1964). Then, in Jan. 1974, after doing everything the organized church told me I should do, I saw through the teaching of Bro. E.C. Moore of Pensacola, FL, that my time had been spent in vain and my study of the bible had been as nothing. What he taught me was not so much what he believed (although that is always the case with any teacher--if he didn’t believe it, he wouldn’t teach it), rather it was a bible prescribed method of study by “rightly dividing the word of truth.) Now if one can rightly divide he can also wrongly divide. Bro. Moore’s emphasis was always to “compare spiritual things with spiritual-- Scripture with Scripture.”

From about August of that year on, I have desired to preach and teach the things of the Word of God with those principles in mind: will Scripture prove Scripture and can it be studied this way?

We hope you can see this in the messages on this website.

Further, please take note that we believe and teach the King James Bible as the word of God without error or compromise for the English speaking world today.

Our biblical practice is to "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."-2 Tim.2:15. The reason to call ourselves Grace For All is that we want all who attend here to know not to trust in a man or men to decide the right or the wrong of doctrine. Rather, if we each study the word, then come together in one spirit with one mind, we can come to a complete understanding of how the Lord intends us to live our lives: 1.) " . . . to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery . . ."  Eph.3:9, and, 2.) make known through the word that "(God our Saviour) would have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth." - 1 Tim. 2: 4.

We hope you enjoy the podcast of a recent message and tell us how we can help.

Statement of Purpose

We at Grace For All are very much aware of who and what we are. As stated elsewhere we know that it is only by God’s marvelous grace that we are allowed the privilege of 1.) salvation; 2.) participation in a ministry. Therefore, it seems somehow imperative that we should state what our purpose is. We are a group of believers whose aim is to place the glory and praise upon He whom we worship, the Lord Jesus Christ. Phi.3:3 says that we “worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.” By what means we can, we want to portray that.

Peter, Paul, Cornelius, James,--FOUR for the Lord in a Time of Change and the period from Kingdom of Heaven doctrine to Body of Christ doctrine

Reasons to believe there is a dual program:

 Paul in Acts 9--a blasphemer of the Holy Spirit is saved.

 Peter in Acts 10--a Gentile (Cornelius) is included in the kingdom of Heaven

 Peter and Paul in Acts 11--Peter was questioned openly by his peers. Paul was “installed” as the teacher of Gentiles.

 Peter in Acts 12--Though the “angel of the Lord” releases Peter from jail, after tellingthose who prayed for his release, he went “to another place” and we don’t know where.

 Paul in Acts 13, 14--with Barnabas, who came from Peter’s group, went throughoutGalatia and surrounding locales for about 14 years--and finished their ministry (14:26).

 Peter and Paul in Acts 15--made all who were there to understand they did not have thesame gospel, same ministry, or same future in Christ.

 Paul in Gal. 1--Went to Jerusalem to insure what he preached wherever he went was notinterrupted by Jews or “kingdom saints”.

 Paul and Peter in Gal. 2--Paul would not allow Peter to mistreat or do anything untowardwhere Gentiles and “body doctrine” were concerned.

 Paul in Acts 20, 21, 22--was “bound in the spirit” to go to Jerusalem; went and testified tothe “church at Jerusalem”, which were kingdom saints; then, in obedience to the law,went into the temple; was falsely accused, chased and then rescued by a Romansoldier who allowed him to speak to the Jews. When he incited them, it was because hemade reference to the Lord sending him “far hence” to Gentiles other Jews would never have associated with--namely, people like us.

 Peter in Acts 21--though he was in the number Paul visited, he was powerless to doanything about Paul’s difficulty.

 Paul from Acts 22 thru 28--was bounced from jail to jail to appealing unto Caesar, andfinally in prison at Rome for years, writing letters to Gentiles who were those “far hence” Gentiles he had spoken of in ch.22.

  Peter in 2 Peter 3--wrote admitting that Paul had written “some things hard to beunderstood…” and further stated these to whom he(Peter) was writing should notwrestle with it. (An admission, also, that Paul’s writings were not to these .)

 

  Who was Cornelius in the eyes of the Lord? Acts 10-- “A devout man, and one that fearedGod with all his house, which gave much alms to the people, and prayed to God alway.” A man whose prayers and alms came up before God “for a memorial.” Who, then, was honored as one chosen of God to hear the message of Peter and the12, the message of the Kingdom of heaven, in accordance with prophecy of Isa.66.

  Who was James, the Lord’s brother in the eyes of the Lord? Gal.--He was a man our Apostle Paul purposely saw when he went back to Jerusalem after his conversion (Acts 9?). In Acts 12, he was the man Peter told the “prayer meeting people”, of Acts 12:17, togo tell about his deliverance from prison. In Acts 15, he was the conductor of “business” for the Jerusalem church which included Peter and, seemingly, the author of the“decrees for to keep” which Paul and his company carried to the gentile churches. InActs 21, it is James that Paul took his final gift unto for the “poor saints” in Jerusalem. Itwas James who instructed Paul about going into the temple under a vow withoutargument.

 Men who cannot be ignored in Acts. Saying what the bible says and no more.
