5 HOURS LEFT...

This is it! Only 5 hours left for you to order a case of 16 of WHEN PRINCIPLE WAS KING for $12.50 a book, plus S/H, verses $24.95 a book after midnight. The response has been great today. Several called and placed orders and It is still not too late!

NEW YORK

"I have just received your book on Dr. Hyles, WHEN PRINCIPLE WAS KING. As I started reading, my emotions got the best of me as my memories raced back to that front row of the balcony the third week of every March at Pastors' School where I shed many tears and dedicated myself to the very principles I have now been reading in your book. 

I cannot adequately express to you my appreciation for all the labour and wisdom that has gone into probably one of the most important books of our generation of fundamentalists will ever read. 

Whenever I hear you preach at our church and at other churches, every time I get o talk to you, I feel like it is the closest I can get to Dr. Hyles today. I now have a book that has embodied his principles so clearly and unequivocally. 

I believe these principles in this book will be treasured and memorized in kitchens and dining rooms all across America. There is no doubt that these principles will be proclaimed from pulpits and Sunday school classes in so many different cities, states, and nations; and I personally believe that this book will be used to re-ignite a fundamentalist old-time revival inside fundamentalism.

Thank you for taking your stand and for being willing to suffer the consequences of it. I love you."


OHIO

"Enjoying the book WHEN PRINCIPLE WAS KING! I wish everyone that was ever influenced by Dr. Hyles would read the book."

Please call 903-576-1307 or 903-237-9019 to place your order of a case of 16 at a 50% discount or one book for a 25% discount plus S/H.  You may email bgraysr@me.com to place an order also. You will not be disappointed if you love old time fundamentalism. GOTTA LOVE THE OLD TIMERS!

NEW YORK

"Thank you so much for writing this book, WHEN PRINCIPLE WAS KING. It has allowed me to get to know Bro. Hyles in such a way that I would have never been able to before. This is special to me because I never got to know Dr. Hyles like so many others. I was only able to attend Pastors' School once before he died and that was the last year he was there. I heard him preach only a few times, and I only met him once or twice in person. I never had a chance to really talk to him, but I wanted to get to know more about him or get to know him in some way, but I was never able. Your book has allowed me to 'get to know him' like I never could have before. Thank you!"

CANADA

"I miss Dr. Hyles and have often wondered what he would have done or said during these last ten years with this wavering fundamentalism we see that has created a lot of insecurity among God's men and God's people?  This book made me feel secure in what I believe, teach, preach, and practice as an independent Baptist preacher. I wish every young pastor and young Christian would read this book and know the Jack Hyles that I knew!"

SOUTH CAROLINA

"My pastor gave me your book WHEN PRINCIPLES WAS KING. He told me it might make me mad. After reading just a couple hundred pages I have discovered more valuable principles to use in a practical and daily manner than I have ever read in any book before. I had to take the time to say, 'Thank you!'"

There are only 5 days left to take advantage of the 50%, plus S/H, offer for WHEN PRINCIPLE WAS KING if you purchase a case of 16 books. The book will sell for $24.95 after December. With the purchase of a case of 16 it will be 50% off with the book costing $12.50 per book plus S/H.

Dr. Hyles was one of the fathers of the large church movement in America and those principles have been lost in the MEGA-CHURCH and MECCA-CHURCH mentality of our day.  Dr. Hyles would not recognize what we are endeavoring to do in Christianity today. I hope you will pick up the phone and call now to order. 5 days left until this offer is not available. Some have called and asked if the offer is still good if they had already purchased a case. The answer is "YES!"

CHRISTMAS SUNDAY AT LBT

SUNDAY MORNING @ LBT
An LBT Christmas Sunday morning is always exciting, but this year was extra special for us because the entire Gray family was here for the Holidays.  We had our annual Christmas gathering at the house on Friday night. Then we were all able to attend the Christmas service at LBT on Sunday. The building was full, the preaching great, and the spirit superb. 


Scott Gray & Family
It was especially exciting to have Scott and his family home for Christmas. He is a great preacher of the Gospel and has a wonderful family. I cannot begin to tell you how proud of our children and grandchildren we are. To see them win souls and be faithful to each other and our LORD is a gift beyond words.


Christmas Sunday Night @ LBT
When other churches shut down for the LORD'S birthday LBT throughout her history has always been open to do the LORD'S business.  I will never understand as long as I live how a church whose head is the LORD JESUS CHRIST could show such disrespect by closing her doors on HIS BIRTHDAY. Let me get another thing off my chest...I will never understand how everyone will receive gifts but the ONE whose birthday it is? JUST A THOUGHT! 

LBT had a wonderful day with folks being saved and baptized. The children's choirs did an excellent job of bringing praise to our LORD.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU AND YOURS

On behalf of the Gray family may we wish you a Merry Christmas!  This has been a wonderful year with many souls trusting Christ and yet a time of missing many friends with whom we normally share this time of the year.  My dear mother went home to be with the LORD on Christmas Day 2010 and we miss her.


She was the greatest Christian I have ever known and a tremendous mainstay in our home. She taught us to love our LORD, our family, and our nation! She taught us the value of hard work and honesty. Thank you Mama for all that you did for us. We miss you!




A CHRISTMAS AT THE GRAY HOUSEHOLD

Last night our family gathered at our home and we had a great time of fellowship. The Grandchildren were there an Jordan was the elected one to read the Christmas story. He is a fine young man and is a preacher. He is the son of Dr. Bob II. The kids brought assorted desserts and a get this..."A box of Starbucks Coffee." WOW!




MERRY CHRISTMAS!

EVANGELIST MONTE WATTS GOES TO HEAVEN

Dr. Monte Watts
Early Thursday morning  our dear friend Dr. Monte Watts went home to be with the LORD at age 60. He was one of the gentlest giants of the faith I have ever known. 


I have relived with my wife today our first meeting at his home church in Ravenna, Ohio, where he served faithfully as an Assistant Pastor. I recall when he enrolled in Bible College, his graduation, and his beginning of the FOUNDATION CONFERENCES.  He traveled and preached in 80 to 100 churches every year  for almost three decades and was a man of faith. He never let his needs be known and God took care of every need.  It was amazing!

I have preached numerous times each year with him, went soul winning with him, prayed with him, extensive conversations about Scriptures, and wept with him.  We were together in Greenville, Ohio, when Dr. Jack Hyles went home to be with the LORD.  I feel the same way today about the home going of Dr. Monte Watts. He will be missed. Our loss, but Heaven's gain!

He stood tall in the saddle for old time religion. He was an apologist when it came to the fundamentals of the faith. He never wavered when the battle broke out over the preserved inspiration of the King James Bible and gently, but firmly, stood God's ground! "My dear brother I love you and will honor your memory by fighting on for truth!"

The funeral arrangements have been set. The service will be held at the Bible Baptist Church of Highland, IN., Wednesday December 28, 2011. Pastor Poole's number is 219-838-1668 if you wish to speak with him. Viewing will be from 3 to 8 on Tuesday the 27th.

Bible Baptist Church
8720 Orchard Drive
Highland, IN.

This is just a suggestion, but I would think Mrs. Jan Watts would need money more than flowers. Her address is...

Mrs. Jan Watts
6210 W. 85th Ave.
Crown Point, IN   46307

I loved traveling with him, eating at Cracker Barrel with him, praying with him, soul winning with him, joking with him, encouraging preachers with him, and watching the calming affect he had with his demeanor. He will be missed! GOTTA LOVE OLD TIME SERVANTS OF GOD!

SUNDAY NIGHT AT TEXAS BAPTIST CHURCH

Pastor Keith Bell
Sunday night I preached at the TEXAS BAPTIST CHURCH my sermon "THE FIRST CHRISTMAS." A mother and daughter who were led to Christ were baptized tonight. The building once again was full and the spirit was great. Pastor Keith Bell is doing an excellent work in San Antonio, TX.  If you are ever in this area on vacation please stop by and visit this great church. The church was started 11 years ago with Pastor Bell and family.

THE FIRST CHRISTMAS

I came to the defense last night of those folks at the inn. I think we have given them a bum rap. I think we have painted them up to be some kind of a wicked, vulgar, drunken, sensuous, adulterers, and party goers who did not want Jesus. I do not think that is true. These folks were not mad at Jesus for they were not Atheists who did not believe in God, or hate God, or hate Jesus. If they had had a room they would have rented it.

Some there that night were stout Jewish farmers with their money bags who were there to simply pay their taxes. Some were governors with the pride of small official business in their hearts. Some were no doubt Roman soldiers performing their civic duties. There were probably a few traveling Priests and Rabbis laying down dogmatic oracles to wide mouthed hearers. There were a few idlers I see hanging around the fire warming themselves. The city was packed with visitors for this was a tax day, a holiday, and a religious day.

This is not the angry mob of 33 1/2 years later. This is not the crowd hollering "Crucify him...crucify him" or "Let Barabbas go...let Barabbas go!" These people were not screaming "Don't let that baby in!" They simply did not know who he was for had they known they would have let him in. 

They looked for the Messiah. They wanted him to come. Their fathers, grandfathers, and forefathers had looked for the Messiah. They knew Genesis 3:15 promised that the seed of a virgin would someday bruise the head of the Serpent. These are not atheistic  God haters for they mostly were good, dedicated, religious, God fearing people who just did not know he was. 

They had offered the Passover for they knew someday there would come the God-man as the real Passover, but they did not know that this little one at the door was him.

These are they who had seen the High-priest perform his ritual and they knew that some day the real High-priest would come, but they were so busy they missed the Messiah at their very doorstep. These are they who knew the story of the Brazen Serpent in Numbers. They knew that Brazen Serpent pictured the fact that someday a Saviour would die on the cross about whom the Scriptures said, "If I be lifted up I will draw all men unto me." They knew Isaiah chapter 53 for they could quote it. They knew Isaiah chapter 9 for they had it memorized. "Unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace."

Please let us not be too hard on these folks for they are just like us "TOO BUSY" celebrating with each other to notice who is at the very door of our lives and whose birthday it really is! GOTTA LOVE THE SAVIOUR WHOSE BIRTHDAY IT IS!

SUNDAY MORNING IN SAN ANTONIO, TX.

This morning I had the honor of preaching for one of our TEXAS BAPTIST COLLEGE graduates Pastor Keith Bell.  Pastor Bell and his family came to San Antonio 11 years ago and founded the TEXAS BAPTIST CHURCH. It is an amazing church. There were 5 services all conducted this morning. The buildings were packed. God gave us 74 saved, 62 professions, and 27 baptisms. WOW! GOTTA LOVE SOUL WINNING!

FLYING TO SAN ANTONIO TO PREACH

Mrs. G will be going with me to San Antonio to preach for one of our TEXAS BAPTIST COLLEGE grads Pastor Keith Bell.  Pastor Bell founded the TEXAS BAPTIST CHURCH of San Antonio several years ago and is doing an excellent job of leading his church to win souls. Mrs. G is excited about being able to go and so am I.

We are flying out of Longview to DFW and then on to San Antonio. The last time we were there Mrs. G was given a motorized chair to help her get around and we had a great time of sightseeing all of the Christmas decorations of the "River Walk" area especially. By the way Mrs. G will have her rotator cuff surgery on January 16 so please remember to pray for her.


By the way neither of us could sleep tonight so we were up at 3 am and I fixed her a light breakfast. I did some work in attempting to fill all of the orders for WHEN PRINCIPLE WAS KING.  The response has been fantastic.  

There is a thirst for the Biblical principles used by Dr. Jack Hyles in his day that are not restricted to his day.  Someone said this is the Laodicean Age and there will be no great churches.  Sorry, but it has happened, is happening, and will happen again! Romans 5:20 "...But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound." AMEN!


Evangelist Monte Watts texted me yesterday and said all the tests are done and it appears the heart surgery will be in early January 2012. I will keep you posted and I want to express my gratitude to those churches who took up special offerings to help fill 20-25 weeks he will be laid up in recovery. He travels every week of the world and last year was in well over 100 churches. He lives by faith! This man is a treasure to the local churches of America and I hope if you have not taken up an offering to please do so to help this dear brother!

His address is ... 

Evangelist Monte Watts
6210 W. 85th Ave.
Crown Point, IN  46307

I know he and his dear wife Jan will be very appreciative of your help. They have not asked me to do do this. I do it because it is the right thing to do! GOTTA LOVE SOUL WINNERS!

FIRST CASE OF "WHEN PRINCIPLE WAS KING" ARRIVES IN TN

I just received a pic of the first reported delivery of WHEN PRINCIPLE WAS KING to be delivered in a case. Pastor Dave Baker of Columbia, TN, sent me this pic after he opened up the case of 16. He then called me and told me how he was excited to see  the books. He commented about them being first class and the uniqueness of the content.


If you have not taken advantage of this 50% offer on this much needed book of the life principles of Dr. Jack Hyles I would like to encourage you to call NOW!  903-576-1307  or 903-237-9017 and order a case of 16 books at $12.50 a book plus S/H. This particular delivery took just two days.

He was one of the fathers of the big church movement in America, but more than that he was a mentor to the Independent Fundamental Baptist movement and his principles were biblical and will still work. God is not a respecter of persons. He did not love Jack Hyles more than he does you and I. Now, he loves me more than you, but that doesn't count! Ha! Please order this book NOW!

GREAT WEEKEND IN FORT WAYNE, IN

Sunday Morning
I taught and preached this morning at the THREE RIVERS BAPTIST CHURCH of Fort Wayne, IN. In Sunday school I taught my lesson on "WHO DO I LISTEN TOO?"  Then I preached my sermon "YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN!" 

Tonight the pastor's son Ben Jackson announced there were a total of 40 saved out on soul winning this week end and 14 saved today. This church has a great spirit and are very responsive to old fashioned preaching.


Mark & Linda Sigstad
Tonight I preached my sermon "WHY SHOULD YOU BE A PERSONAL SOUL WINNER?" Before the service began I noticed Missionary Mark Sigstad with his wife Linda. They are home from the mission field and visiting some of their supporting churches in America. Mark had prostate cancer and has been cancer free for 8 years, but has to come back once a year to have a physical to make sure he is still cancer free. While he is back in the states he also visits some of his supporting churches.

This is one of the great missionaries of our day. He has been on the field for almost 28 years. He has started 11 churches in West Africa. He has established works in Ghana and Nigeria. Thousands have been won to Christ because of their labors. This couple is worthy of your support. In the 29 1/2 years of pastoring the LONGVIEW BAPTIST TEMPLE we gave 9.3 million dollars to missions.  Missionaries are heroes in the work of God as far as I am concerned. God bless this dear couple!

You can contact them at marksigstad@yahoo.com.  LBT has supported Mark and Linda from day one. He has established independent indigenous local churches. This is what God had in mind for missions. Be careful and do not be deceived by pseudo mission plans that do not produce indigenous independent churches. GOTTA LOVE SCRIPTURAL MISSIONS!

FLYING TO INDIANA TO PREACH

This morning I will fly out of the Longview, TX, airport to DFW and then on to Fort Wayne, IN, to preach for my friend Pastor Doug Jackson who pastors the THREE RIVERS BAPTIST CHURCH. He and his dear church are a solid fundamental independent Baptist Church and reaching a lot of folks with the Gospel. 

Mrs. G is going to have rotator cuff shoulder surgery in Feb. of 2012. This will be her 34th surgery. If anyone out there has any extra body parts please let us know. Ha! She has a lot of trouble lifting her arm to dress and is in pain when she attempts to do so. Pray for her please!

The soul winning has been great with 8 saved last week and 2 following the Lord in baptism. Looking forward to the challenges of 2012.  In the Spring of the year we will have our first INDEPENDENT BAPTIST CONFERENCE meeting in Wisconsin. I will provide some more details the closer we are to the first IBC meeting.  The theme will be "HERE WE GROW AGAIN!"   God is not a respecter of persons and He still wants to do it again!

PREACHING IN ALABAMA

Adam, Sharon, Kaitlyn, and dad Richard Ullo
Tonight I preached my sermon at the BIBLE BAPTIST CHURCH of Spanish Fort, AL, "GOD'S SIMPLE PLAN FOR A SOUL WINNING CHURCH" from Luke chapter 14.  


Pastor Richard Ullo became the pastor a little over two years ago with 3 or 4 ladies who kept the doors open. This dear pastor and family have gone soul winning and God is beginning to bless their efforts. This is like starting all over again, but this family is determined to keep on winning souls. They average 50 a Sunday and that is far cry from the 3 or 4 that greeted them when they came. There were 7 saved Sunday and 1 baptism. They have remodeled the inside of the auditorium and it looks brand new.

Brian Ullo


Tonight after the service I was chatting with the pastor and he mentioned that their son Brian is in the Marines and is on his way to Afghanistan. I asked him for a pic and he emailed this one to me. I could not help but recall the Ullo children as little ones when they first came to Longview, TX.   I cannot begin to tell you how proud of this family I am. Thank God for them! Pray for Brian.

By the way I forgot to give the Book and Chapter for the outline I sent in the previous BLOG. WOW, at lease I know you are reading them. Let me do one thing wrong and all of you come out of the wood work! HA! It was Proverbs chapter 27. GOTTA LOVE THE SCRIPTURES!

Ok, boys and girls here is another outline for "GOD'S SIMPLE PLAN FOR A SOUL WINNING CHURCH" from Luke chapter 14:12-24. This is a parable of the "Marriage Supper of the Lamb." A heavenly truth with an earthly story. We are to reach every one we can with the Gospel in order to prepare them for the Rapture, Judgment Seat of Christ, Marriage of the Lamb, and the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.

1) Make church a feast (verse 13)
2) Call the poor, maimed, lame, & blind (verse 13)
3) Do not expect the converts to pay the bills (vs. 14)
4) Trust God to pay the bills (verse 12, 14; Psalm 41)
5) Prepare for the converts (vs. 16, 17)
6) Remove their excuses (vs. 18-20)
7) Bring your own converts to church (vs. 21)
8) Turn your bidding into compelling (vs 16-17, 23-24)

GOTTA LOVE A SOUL WINNING CHURCH!
