From its inception, Christianity has been “a light that shinneth in a dark place.” A beacon of hope in a lost and dying world. Although continually besieged by the forces of darkness, “the light of the glorious gospel” is never extinguished. However, without continuous and broadening spiritual understanding, the light can be dimmed and thwarted in the hearts and minds of the messengers. Especially true in these last days.
Have you ever pondered the actual meaning and practicality of the following Scripture: “…put off the old man… and “put on the new man” (Eph. 4:22 & 24)? Exactly how is that accomplished? What is the significance of the believer being “circumcised with the circumcision made without hands” (Col. 2:11)? When and how did that occur?
Or the reality of the apostle Paul’s declaration: “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live…” (Gal. 2:20)? The answers to these enigmatic questions (unveiled in this book) provide a panorama of spiritual understanding essential to persevere in the perilous times in which we live.
Pastor Arnold Wayne Weckeman received his formal education at First Bible Church’s Bible Institute, Staten Island, N.Y. Before his ordination, he served for ten years as a deacon, head deacon. Although involved in many of the church’s evangelism ministries, his passion was discipleship. His life verse is 2 Timothy 2:2, “And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.” As the head deacon, he oversaw FBCs Discipleship Ministry teaching weekly classes on the biblical principles of “Spiritual Multiplication.” In 2000 Pastor Weckeman and his wife Sandra moved to Pike Co. Pa. and began holding Bible studies in their home and Sunday services in Pike County, PA. As the Lord blessed and the ministry grew, a decision was made to establish First Bible Church in Lord’s Valley. Pastor Wayne and his wife, Sandra, presently reside in Buckeye, Arizona.
