Notes, News, and




We are happy to report our recent discovery of a, totally FREE of charge, Bible Study Program called TheWord.  It is a high-end program with the ability to open scripture references within the program by simply hovering over the reference(s).  TheWORD also has something rather unusual, at least to us, that is really great. It has the ability to instantly display any legitimately tagged scripture reference(s) on any other open program(s) on your computer.  Simply select one, or as many scripture references as you like (on any other open program[s] on your computer) then right click anywhere in the selected area and left click COPY. All legitimately tagged scripture references within the selected area, will be instantly displayed in a separate floating window. This TheWord program can be left (open), out of the way on the taskbar, but it must be (open) for the other programs to work.  You don’t have to be particular when selecting.  Just select one reference, a portion of a page, or several pages) that include the scripture reference(s) you want to open.  TheWORD will instantly recognize and open all legitimately tagged scripture references found within the selected text and nothing else.)  Just select, right click, then left click COPY; it’s that simple. If you do not already have a bible study program with this capability we urge you to try TheWord; it’s totally FREE.  If you would like to try the program on your computer, the web address is: http://www.theword.net/ (it is also listed hot on our Contact and Links page [click Contact and Links button on the navigation bar, top left corner of this page).


About TheWord for those who may be interested.

There are many preferences available throughout this FREE Bible Study Program to personalize it to your liking; including the floating reference window.

We feel “very blessed of the Lord” to have discovered this great bible software and believe you will be as happy with TheWord as we are. TheWORD comes loaded with a good assortment of books, bibles, concordances, dictionaries, etc., so you can begin studying immediately. In addition there are many other FREE books, bibles, etc., which you can download if you choose; and of course, there’s the per pay bibles, books, concordances, etc. available should you desire to purchase them.

Gospel Tracts and Mini Messages

We were told back in the 70s and 80s (before the advent of cell phones and twitter machines) that the attention span of the average church attender would soon be only about three minutes.  We laughed about it at the time, but today I’m wondering if the attention span of some, especially young people, is even that long.  Accordingly, in an attempt to get the message read, I have began to write shorter more compact messages; i.e., bifold Tracts (2-7/8 x 5-1/2 inches) and what I call bifold Mini Messages (2-7/8 x 7 inches).  I actually wrote the first tract at the request of a truck driving friend of mine who wanted something small enough to easily carry in a shirt pocket or in hand, and would have a strong gospel message as a witnessing tool for Christ. He wanted a message that would work for any and all lost souls he would come in contact with; regardless of race, color, gender, or any other classification of human beings. As it turned out, the tract filled the bill for him in both size and message. The message title is “What Must One Do to Be Saved?” It is a powerful, informative, and most important of all, a scriptural gospel tract that he dearly loves. He says people will start reading it while he is still witnessing to them about the Lord. He feels he is reaching many with scriptural facts most have never heard before. I have posted the text of this particular gospel tract below, plus two of the slightly longer Mini Messages; all of which are in a larger size type than is on the actual Tracts and Mini Messages. So please take the time to read these short gospel messages; even if you only have time to read one each day.  Reading one or more of these short messages could make the difference in where you, and anyone you may come in contact with, spend eternity.  JDG

A reminder! If you have already installed the Bible Study Program “theWord,” on your computer, you will  find it works wonderfully on the scripture references in these messages. If you have not, we urge you to do so. You’ll not be sorry you did. JDG


Note 1 To simplify selecting scripture references to be opened with theWord, especially when selecting groups of references, we are in the process of highlighting all scripture references on this site in yellow (example; John 3:16-18). This makes selecting faster and easier with less chance of missing a reference or references.


Note 2 Some complete verses already given in the text, may be shown with a hyphen between the book name and chapter instead of a space (example; John-3:16-18 in Tract 1, below). This delegitimizes that reference, and all other references so tagged (as far as theWord is concerned), to prevent theWord from opening those particular verses unnecessarily.


Tract 1


Tract 1 - By Jerry D. Green

To be SAVED a person MUST BE BORN AGAIN.  These are the words of Jesus (of Nazareth) who was, and forever will be, the ONLY BEGOTTEN of a fleshly body SON of GOD. We will show by the scriptures that this statement is true.

John-3:16-18  (v16) “For God so loved the world (lost mankind), that He gave His only begotten (of a fleshly body) Son (that He might bear our “old man” [our old sin nature] along with all previously committed sins [“…sins that are past…”], to death with Him on the cross [I Peter 2:24; Romans 3:25]), that whosoever believeth IN Him (and that which He did to save us) should not perish, but have everlast­ing life. (v17) For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved. (v18) He that believeth ON (and IN) Him is NOT condemned (there is no sentence of death on that person): but he that believeth NOT (ON and IN Him; the only begotten Son of God) is con­demned already, because he (or she) hath NOT BELIEVED IN (and ON) the name of the only begotten Son of God.”


One day Jesus asked His chosen disciples, “…Whom say ye that I the Son of man am? And Simon Peter answered and said, ‘Thou art THE CHRIST, the Son of the living God.’  And Jesus…said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it (this) unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven” (Matthew 16:13-17). Now, I must ask you:


Concerning salvation this is the single most important thing you can ever know about Jesus of Nazareth: First, He WAS, and IS, the PROMISED MESSIAH of the Old Testament (Daniel 9:25).  He also WAS and IS, THE CHRIST (of the New Testament); the One, SENT down from heaven (John 6:38-40).  He also, WAS and IS the only begotten (of a fleshly body) Son of God; and He DID accomplish everything that it was prophesied He would do when He came, including, “… make an end of sins…” which He does in the heart of all who will believe the true report of the gospel of Him (Daniel 9:24-27).


John answers with Jesus’ very own words:

“…Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man (woman, boy, or girl) be BORN AGAIN (of God), he (she, or they) cannot see the kingdom of God” John 3:3.

These words, which Jesus spoke to Nicodemus, now demand another important question:


Again, it is John who answers the question:

I John 5:1 “Whosoever BELIEVES that JESUS IS THE CHRIST IS BORN OF GOD: and everyone that loveth Him that begat (which is God the Father) loveth him also that is begotten of Him (which is firstly, Jesus CHRIST, THE SON, and by extension, all of His SPIRITUALLY born again [begotten of God] brethren [i.e., all truly born again brothers and sisters of, and in, Christ]); all the true children of God (Romans 8:29).”

John also gives a specific reason for writing the Book (or, the Gospel) of John.  In John 20:31, he writes this: “But these (things he has written) are written, that ye (you) might BELIEVE (something extremely important) that Jesus IS THE CHRIST, the Son of God; and (in) believing (these things) ye might (can) have LIFE through HIS name.”

These things of which John speaks are the things recorded in the entire Gospel (or Book) of John as well as his epistles (letters) to the churches.  If you have never read the writings of John, we earnestly urge you to do so, and begin with “The Gospel of John.” In these you will find words unto everlasting life which one must see, hear, and believe from the heart to receive from God.  It is in the seeing, hearing, and believing of these things (especially the fact that JESUS IS THE CHRIST; NT - John 4:25-26; THE MESSIAH; - OT - Daniel 9:24-27, the One SENT down from God; John 6:38-40) that we are truly born again; that we are made partakers of true salvation, that we are truly saved, which a person must be to stand before God. The importance of being in right standing with God cannot be over stated, because the alternative to “eternal LIFE” is “eternal DEATH in the lake of fire.”  But please don’t take the words of this writer for anything as important as this. Read the Words of God for yourself.

Revelation-20:11-15; (v11) “And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.  (v12) And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books (of WORKS) were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life, and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to THEIR WORKS.  (v13) And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead that were in them: and they were judged every man according to THEIR WORKS.  (v14) And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the SECOND DEATH.  (v15) And whosoever was NOT found written in the BOOK of LIFE WAS CAST INTO THE LAKE of FIRE.”

What more can we say?, other than the fact that a great and mighty salvation awaits all who will repent (change their wrong thinking about Jesus, the Christ of God) and believe a true report of the gospel of Him. So call on Him today; the one who loved us enough to suffer at the hands of cruel and wicked men, even unto death on a cross; that we all (all mankind) could have an opportunity to be saved.  Outside of Jesus, the true Christ of God, there is absolutely no other way for anyone to ever be saved (John 14:6). And, lest we forget, eternity in the lake of fire awaits all who “neglect so great a salvation” as Jesus has purchased for us “by His own blood” (Hebrews 2:3; 9:12). The apostle Paul declares in Romans 1:16, “…I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for IT is the power of God unto salvation unto everyone that believeth…” (IT).  This gospel of which the apostle Paul speaks is the same gospel that, in the words of Jesus, would make the BELIEVER thereof “free indeed” from sin (John 8:30-36). Our prayer today is that you will be drawn by God the Father to seek this great and wonderful salvation of which we write in this little tract (John 6:44). For those who desire to know more about the true, soul saving gospel of Christ, we recommend the gospel web sites below. Like this little tract, these web sites are totally dedicated to proclaiming “the true gospel of Jesus Christ” to all; without fear, favor, or cost to any. If you do not already know Jesus as your Lord and Savior our hope and prayer is that you WILL come to know Him very soon; because His coming is very near.  His coming will be preceded by approximately three and a half years of extremely perilous times, in which you do not want to be found on this earth without Him (Daniel 12:6-12; Matthew 24:3-22). The cost of NOT knowing Him and His great salvation, at any time is incomprehensible.  May the truly great God and Father of the Lord Jesus Christ draw you to seek, find, and believe the great salvation He has for you through, and only through, the true gospel of His dear Son.  Do not delay in seeking the indescribable rest and peace God has for your heart and soul in believing the true gospel of Jesus, the Christ and Son of God.

Mini Message 1

Repent and Believe the Gospel

Mini Message 1 - By Jerry D. Green

What comes to mind when you hear the word “repent?”  The most likely answer a person would receive, if the question were asked, is “being sorry for sins one has committed.” This is not, however, exactly what is meant when the words repent, or repentance, are used in the scriptures. Being sorry for one’s sins, alone, has never saved anyone; and never will.  It can, however, bring a person to seek an answer for their sin; which is a first step toward salvation (II Cor 7:8-12).

Sin, which is actually the nature of Satan,  is an inherent problem which all mankind  is born with; because of the disobedience of the “one man,Adam (Rom 5:12). This sin nature is what separates fallen mankind from God and can only be resolved by the elimination of the problem. Man, however, can never do this on his own, because it is a spiritual heart problem; which can only be resolved by God Himself. Therefore, we must put our faith in Him and His provision. Only then can He move to remedy our problem. His provision was accomplished for us, by and through, the giving of His Son Jesus to the death of a cross.  It is because of the things which God did for us by, and through, His Son (i.e., His shed blood, His death, His burial, resurrection, and ascension) that we can have access to God. The overall account of these things which took place are commonly called “the gospel of Christ,” and are the only way to God (Mk 1:1; John 14:6).

Outside of hearing and believing “the true gospel of Christ,” there is absolutely no other way for a person to be saved. You should be warned however, that it must be a pure, true, “rightly divided” account of the “gospel of Christ”  (II Tim 2:15).  Multitudes of false prophets lie at the door waiting to deceive and fleece the simple of the flock of God, for their own personal gain and other fleshly lust (Matt 7:15).  Only those who sincerely love the truth will ever be able to negotiate the maze of these false prophets and teachers with their false messages; to find the true “treasure hidden in the field” Matt 13:44. Nothing short of our absolute faith in the pure, true, “gospel of Jesus Christ” can provide for us that which God requires; a new, pure, clean, sinless heart.” We “must be born again” of a “new heart” and a “new spirit” (the Spirit of Christ, and filled with the Spirit of God (Ezk 36:26-27; Rom 8; I John 5:1).

But, to the primary subject of the message, we must briefly examine the definition of the Greek words translated “repent” and “repentance;” as  used in the scriptures. It is important we understand these. The Greek word translated repent is #3340 in Strong’s Greek Dictionary, and means: To think differently, or afterwards, i.e. reconsider (morally, to feel compunction):

The Greek word translated repentance is Strong’s #3341 and means compunction (for guilt, including reformation); by implication, reversal (of [another’s] decision). The definition of the English word compunction (according to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary): “Implies a painful sting of conscience especially for contemplated wrongdoing;” something  seldom seen in today’s worldly churches.  Based then on these findings, a summary of repent and repentance would simply be to reconsider something; to think differently about something; to reverse a past (wrong) decision; etc.  In light of these finding, we continue.

Almost 500 years before the birth of Jesus, the angel Gabriel told the prophet Daniel the exact year that Messiah (Old Testament; Hebrew), or Christ (New Testament; Greek), would come. And, according to the scriptures, all Israel at that time were expecting His coming. Many believed John (the Baptist) was “the Christ” (the promised “Messiah”); but John affirmed he was not (John 1:20).

In order to fulfill the law of Moses (which was still in effect at the time [but for us is “done away in Christ;” II Cor 3:14]),  Jesus, “that all righteousness might be fulfilled; (Matt 3:13-17) came to John the Baptist to be baptized in water.  Immediately after this, God came down and baptized Jesus with His Holy Spirit; which then led Him into a time of testing which He passed in every point (Luke 4:1; Matt 4:1). We should emphasize the fact that under the New Covenant, water baptism, circumcision, or any other ordinance or tradition of man is in no way a prerequisite for receiving salvation, the baptism of the Holy Ghost, or anything else from God (Gal 6:15; Acts 10).

Soon, Jesus began to preach, teach, and perform great miracles; after which He returned to His hometown of Nazareth where,  after reading Isa 61:1-3 (a prophecy of the Messiah [the Christ]) He was harshly received by the local synagogue (i.e., they would have killed Him); but “passing through the midst of them, He went His way” (Luke 4:17-30).

This was the first persecution and rejection of Jesus (the Christ) by Jewish Israel; but it would not be the last.  The Jewish rulers would not stop their persecution of Him until they had succeeded in His death.  Sadly, the Jewish people have suffered horrendously for this wrong decision.  For almost 2000 years since, the Jewish people have suffered persecutions of every possible description.  From the siege of Jerusalem in 70 AD, to the centuries of being scattered throughout the nations (Psa 60:1), to the more recent holocaust of the past century; they have been displaced and scattered, without a nation of their own until 1948.  Since then they have suffered almost constant war; perhaps one or more every decade.  But until there is a repenting unto repentance, this suffering will only continue and worsen. They must reconsider what they have been taught about Jesus, the Christ.  They must begin to think differently about Him.  There must be a reversal of the terrible decision their forefathers made so many hundreds of years ago. Only then, will they repent of the great sin of their fathers and look favorably unto, and call upon, Him whom their fathers rejected and pierced and their children for all time since have condoned (Psa 49:11). When this repentance takes place, and it will, there will be great mourning in the land of Israel for their deliverer, and for their past rejection of Him (Zech 12; Zech 13; Zech 14; Joel 1; Joel 2; Joel 3; Dan 12; Rev 9).

A great struggle of conscience between the things the Jew has been taught about Jesus, and the truth according to the holy scriptures of God, will take place before this repentance comes.  Nevertheless, this struggle will take place and repentance will come before Jesus returns (Matt 24:29-31). The Jewish people will begin to think differently about Him.  There will be a reversal of their thinking concerning the horrible decisions their forefathers made so many hundreds of years before (i.e., their rejection of Jesus as the Christ).  Again, this repentance WILL come; but NOT until the Jewish people have first endured one last (approximately) 3½ years of a “…time of trouble…” such as never was since there was a nation, until that time…, nor ever shall be” again (Dan 12:1; Joel 2:2; Matt 24:21; Mrk 13:19-27).  This time of trouble will not end until two thirds of the Israeli population (approximately 5.5 million) “…in all the land (of Israel) shall be cut off and die…” (Zech 13:8-9. The total population of Israel at the May 2016 census was approximately 8.25 million).

Nevertheless, this is the plight of the Israeli people; but what about the rest of the world. To them God says in Isa 28:22; “Now therefore be ye not mockers, lest your bands be made strong: for I have heard from the Lord GOD of hosts a consumption (a destruction), even determined upon the whole earth.” And, Jer 25:29; “…lo, I begin to bring evil on the city (of Jerusalem) which is called by my name, and should ye be utterly unpunished? Ye shall NOT be unpunished: for I will call for a sword upon all the inhabitants of the earth, saith the LORD of hosts.”

Simultaneously, circumstances similar to those going on in Israel will also be taking place worldwide. This will include the struggle with radical Islam, as well as the struggle of conscience over the issue of “the Christ; both of which the Jews will also be struggling. But, whether Jew or Gentile, the answer is the same for all.  Repent and believe the gospel of Christ; or perish eternally.

Rev 9:12-16  v12 “One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter. v13 And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden alter which is before God,  v14   Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. v15 And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the THIRD part of men.  v16 And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand, thousand (200 million): and I (John) heard the number of them.”  (These are the locust army of God, [i.e., Islamist terrorist] Joel 2; 3).

This earth will soon become a giant ball of death and destruction and there is only one safe place for both Jews and Gentiles (all other peoples) for now and forever.  “Now is the day of salvation” (II Cor 6:2).  To be saved, “…your life (must) be hid with Christ in God” (Col 3:3); which is, “the secret place of the most High” (Psalm 91).

How does one get into God’s secret place; which is IN Christ?  We must believe in God and His provision.  For “…of him (God) are ye IN Christ Jesus, who of God is made  unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption (I Cor 1:30).”  Therefore, repent with compunction.  Reconsider what you think about Jesus, the Christ of God. Reverse your thinking concerning your forefathers RELIGION; whosoever, whatsoever and wheresoever they, or it, may be. Whether Jew, Gentile, atheist, or just plain lost. Change your thinking about the wrong decisions your forefathers made whether long, or not so long, ago.  Let your thinking be realigned with the truth of the Holy Scriptures (God’s word); then believe the true gospel of Jesus Christ and be saved.

The Nature of the Serpent

Mini Message 2 - By Jerry D. Green

Has anyone ever talked to you about your need to be saved?  Did you, or they, leave with you still wondering what the real difference between being lost and being saved was.  If this is your case, there is little wonder that you did. There are few people today who actually know why a person needs to be saved.  But if a person doesn’t know they are lost, and the horrible consequences of being so, how can they possibly know they need to be saved. The answer to this question should be taught from the pulpits of every church on the planet; but, many pastors do not themselves, know the answer.  Thus, “the blind lead the blind, and all fall into the ditch” (Luke 6:39).  This message is an attempt to reveal the difference between being lost and being saved; and what a lost person must do to be saved.

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” and all that was therein; and “God saw that it was good.” He planted a garden east of Eden, where He placed His newly created man and woman; along with every plant that was good for food.  He also placed two unique trees “in the midst of the garden, …the tree of life… and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil;” the latter of which they were strictly forbidden to eat the fruit thereof (Gen 1:1, 27; 2:7-8, 25; 3:1-24). There was only one way out of that wonderful garden, but, because of the deceptive lie planted by “the dragon, that old serpent, which is the devil and Satan,” Adam and Eve did find the way out (Gen 3:1-5; John 8:44; Rev 20:2). But regrettably, for both them and for us, they also found themselves with a different spirit and a different nature than they had had before. Instead, they now found themselves with the nature of the serpent (a fallen, rebellious, sinful nature); which, until this very day is the case of lost mankind. Every human being ever born on this earth, excepting Jesus, the Christ (who was physically born of the virgin Mary, by God [i.e., by the Holy Ghost] Matt 1:18-25), inherit the same fallen sinful nature that Adam and Eve received in their fall. In this, they (Adam and Eve) became “the foundation (stock; i.e., ancestors) of THE (entire, fallen) WORLD.  Their every descendant was (and yet is) inherently born with the same fallen nature as Satan himself.  What does all this mean?  It means that the flesh (not the physical body, but), the fallen spirit (or nature, of fallen man) produces fallen, sinful works. Gal 5:19-21 will tell us about these: v19 “Now the works of the flesh (the fallen, sinful, nature of man) are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, v20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, v21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and (all) such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things SHALL NOT inherit the kingdom of God.” If any of these are working in you, you need to be saved, “now” (today). Jesus is coming soon (II Cor 6:2; Lk 12:40).

Irrespective of what many teach today regarding Rev 4:1, the things which John saw are not things that will only happen after Jesus returns.  They are in fact, things that “must be hereafter” from the time John saw them until the end of the thousand year reign of Jesus, the Christ, on this earth; and beyond. With the passing of time and the worldwide increase in population and knowledge, man’s ability to wage war, etc., has also increased in both magnitude and frequency (all of which are the result of the entrance of sin Rom 5:12); and will continue to do so.  It is at the climax of this great “time of trouble” prophesied by Jesus and many of the OT prophets; and described metaphorically in the book of Revelation, that Jesus, the “Prince of Peace” (Isa 9:6)  will return with His “rod of iron” (symbolic of a chastening rod that will not break, bend, or wear out until the desired result is accomplished in rebellious, unbelieving, people and nations [Psa 2; Rev 2:27; 12:5; 19:15; Isa 65:25; Zech 14:17]); to bring an end to war and it’s weapons that fill and “destroy the earth” (Isa 2:4; Mic 4:3; Rev 11:18), for the thousand years that follow (Isa 22:5; Luke 21:25; Matt 24:29-31; Mrk 13:24-27; Rev 20:7-9).


This erroneous teaching of Rev 4:1 is just one more deception of Satan, by and through his ministers (II Cor 11:3, 14-15), to keep you from seeing your urgent need to be saved; before it’s too late. That you might dwell eternally with God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ, along with all the saints of God; of and for all time (John 14:6, 20; Col 3:3). NO sin, and NO sinners will ever enter the heaven of God; Rev 21:7-8, 27.

For all who inherit the kingdom of God by new birth (John 20:31; I John 5:1), there is good news. Please read Gal 5:13-26 in your bible. These scripture verses tell us much more about this subject.  Gal 5:16-18;  v16 “This I say then, Walk in the Spirit (of Christ, and of God), and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.  v17 For the flesh (the fallen, sinful, nature of mankind) lusteth against (opposes) the Spirit (of Christ), and (likewise) the Spirit (of Christ is against; opposes) the flesh (which is of the spirit of Satan [the serpent]): and these are contrary the one to the other: so that … (you) cannot do the things … (you) would (have done before salvation; Rom 7; 8).  v18 But if  (you) be led of the Spirit (of Christ), ye are not under the law.”  Gal 5:22-25; v22 “… (For) the fruit of the Spirit (of Christ) is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, v23 Meekness, (and) temperance: against such (as these) there is no law.  v24  And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lust (thereof). (Rom 6:6. v25) (Therefore) If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.”

Oh!, that every person on this planet were “born again” and walking in, and after, the Spirit of Christ, and of God; but they are not. If they were, Rev 6 would read very differently. Unfortunately that is not the case; so as briefly as possible we will examine the four riders (of the four horses) of Rev 6.

These four horsemen depict the direct results of Adams transgression and the entrance of sin (the nature of Satan, the serpent) which came upon the entire human race because of Adam’s disobedience.  Rom 5:12  “Wherefore, as by one man (Adam) sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have (sin, the nature, and therefore have) sinned (committed sins, because of the fallen sin nature which they inherited).  Lost people are not sinners because they have committed sins; but they sin (commit sins) because they are born sinners (born with a heart to sin):”

Rev-6:2  “And I saw, and behold a WHITE HORSE: and he that sat on him had a bow; (This was Adam as he was created; before the entrance of sin; and this bow is not a weapon, but a covenant bow (a rainbow) and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer” (i.e., having dominion; Psalm 8:4-9).


Rev-6:4And there went out another HORSE that was RED: and power was given to him that sat thereon (which is sin; Rom 5:12) to take peace from the earth, …that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword” (symbolic of war and murder; Matt 15:17-20; I Jn 3:15).

Rev-6:5  “And  when  he  had  opened  the third  seal,  I  heard  the  third  beast  say Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a BLACK HORSE; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand” (a weighing device; symbolic of the judgment of the whole world; Dan 5:26-30).


Rev-6:7-8  v7 “And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.  v8 And I looked, and behold a PALE HORSE: and his name that sat on him was Death (the wages of sin; Rom 6:23), and Hell (Strong’s #1067, a place of everlasting punishment) followed with him.  And power was given unto them (these four riders) over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.”

The world has now experienced about 6,000 years of the effects of these four riders, and today we stand on the very brink of their climax before the return of Jesus.  Only those of a pure, clean, heart can stand before Him.  Are you ready (Matt 24:44)?

There is yet one more horseman to ride. Another man on another white horse; one of incontestable eminence. This will be the most notable ride of any man who ever lived on this earth.  Although His ride is given medaphorically, all will be accomplished that is written. Unlike Adam (the rider of the first white horse) this man (Jesus, the Christ of God), as He did the first time He was sent (John 3:14-19; John 5:24), will not fail in that which He is sent to do this second time; rule the nations of this earth with a rod of iron for a thousand years and beyond (I Cor 15:24-28; Rev 11:15; 12:5; 19:15; 20:13-15).


Rev-19:11-16  v11 “And I saw heaven opened, and behold a WHITE HORSE; and HE that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness HE doth judge and make war.  v12 HIS eyes were as a flame of fire, and on HIS head were many crowns; and HE had a name written, that no man knew, but HE HIMSELF.  v13 And HE was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and HIS name is called The Word of God (John 1:1).  v14 And the armies which were in heaven followed HIM upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.   v15 And out of HIS mouth goeth a sharp sword (the Word of God; Eph 6:17), that with IT HE should smite the nations: and HE shall rule them with a rod of iron: and HE treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.  v16 And HE hath on HIS vesture and on HIS thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.”

Are you prepared to stand before THE RIDER of this last WHITE HORSE (Luke 12:40])?

Mini Message 2 - By Jerry D. Green


Have you ever considered a tract ministry?

All of the above messages are in print as bifold tracts or mini messages. If you have ever considered starting a tract ministry, please read this article.)

Matthew 9:37-38  v37 Then saith he (Jesus) unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few;  v38 Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.

For anyone who has ever considered a tract ministry, there has never been a better time to start. As end-time prophecies continue to unfold in real-time; we believe people will, as never before, begin searching for an answer to the things that are “coming upon the earth” (Luke 21:26; Matt 24:29-30). Most lost people, including lost religious people should be ready to welcome anyone who has an honest answer for their problems. They should be glad to hear your testimony and/or receive a small tract; small in size and short in words, but long in truth.

If you have read one or more of the three above messages, and feel led of the Lord to start a tract ministry of your own; please pray earnestly about doing so.  If, after you have prayed, you still feel led to start one, we would like to help with one or  all of the above messages. If you already have your own copying and printing equipment, or, have convenient access to commercial copying and printing; we will, at your request send you, without charge, a pre-edited layout of all (3) of these bifold messages. With these, you can make as many copies of each tract or mini message as you need; as you need them. A truck driving brother and friend of mine has a very fruitful ministry handing out tracts and witnessing for the Lord (combined with his witness, he’s handed out hundreds of the tract titled “What Must One Do to Be Saved”). There are not a great number of people who can actually give a true, scriptural, answer to this question.

These three messages, though intentionally brief, reveal true scriptural answers to those who are searching for truth, life and peace; and that eternal.  If you think this is something you would like to try, please begin your ministry with these 3 message titles. These are messages the lost world needs to hear, read, and know about. To contact us about receiving these pre-edited layouts, go to Contact and Links on the navigation bar (top left side of the page).  Or, you may copy and paste our website address, jdg@thetruegospelwebsite.org, directly into your web browser.  Either way, please be sure to include your full name and complete mailing address. Thanks so much for considering this offer. We’re looking forward to hearing from you. JDG


Please Note!

If you do not already have an electronic bible study program on your computer that will open scripture references on other programs beside itself, please checkout the new, FREE, TheWord program we recently discovered on the internet.  For additional information, go to our “Notes, News, and Announcements” page, by way of the navigation bar; or, go directly to their website from here. Just copy and paste their address http://www.theword.net/, into your web browser, or go to our “Contact and Links” page, via the navigation bar, for a hot link. The program is totally free and we believe you will be as happy as we were to have found it.  It works great on all legitimately tagged scripture references, including (if we may) these on the true gospel web site.  JDG


Note I

Concerning Scripture Quotations, and,

Their Treatment on this Site.

All scripture quotes used on this web site (unless specifically noted), are from the King James Version of the Bible.  In addition, scripture verses in all JDG Messages, whether complete or partial, are shown in Black (excepting the words of Jesus which are shown in Red). This exact treatment, however, is not (necessarily) the case in messages by other writers.  For your convenience, we are in the process of highlighting all scripture references in all messages in yellow (Example: John 3:16). This makes finding, selecting, and opening them with theWord extra convenient when researching scripture references on this web site or any other open program you may have on your computer.  And, the new, TheWord Bible Study Program is a totally FREE download.  So please take the time to find and study ALL the scripture references in context, as well as the definitions of the Greek and Hebrew words in a Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance (which is also available on the FREE, theWord Bible Study Program; which we highly recommend if you only have one bible study program).  We also recommend that every student of the Bible use the King James Version of the Bible as their primary version. It also works in concert with the Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance numbers, and gives a much better understanding of what the scriptures are actually saying as compared to what the translators sometimes give us.  Another FREE electronic Study Bible, complete with your choice of many free Bible versions (including the KJV), and, Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance (complete with Greek and Hebrew dictionaries, and many other dictionaries, and concordances, [and more]) can be downloaded FREE from e-sword.  Just click Links on our navigation bar, then under FREE Bible Study Tools, click www.e-sword.net (or, click here > www.e-sword.net). The biggest drawback to this electronic bible version is that it does not have the capability of opening scripture references on other open programs on your computer like theWord does; so we just download both and use them in concert.  Finding and studying the scripture references in these messages, in your regular and/or electronic Study Bibles and Concordances, can be a useful, no expense, yet extremely profitable Bible study.  Hope you find this information useful.



Note II

All italicized words in the King James Version of the Bible were added by the first revision translators (editors). Words added by the original translators however, were NOT italicized. While most added words, whether by the original translators or by later editors are beneficial for clarity, be aware that in some cases, they miss the correct meaning of the word or words, and in so doing, detract from and/or (in some cases) completely conceal what the writer was actually saying. JDG


Note III

As always, our intentions are to add new messages on a regular basis, so please visit regularly.  Our prayer is that “The True Gospel Web Site” will be a great blessing to you.  If you find it to be so, we would love to hear from you. Just click “Links” on our home page, then click on our address under “E-mail Us.”  May our God, the God and Father of the Lord Jesus Christ, bless you with His great salvation.  JDG


Note IV

Need the peace and assurance of true salvation?  Read message 7 by JDG, or if you have an honest desire to know more about this last generation we are living in before the return of Jesus to this earth, read some of the scriptural prophecy messages by our guest writer, Leroy Surface. JDG


Note V

What’s Not Being Said?

When a person sees, hears, or reads that which is presented  as the gospel of Jesus Christ, it can sometimes be hard to discern any wrong with what’s being said. Next time try asking the question, what’s not being said?  If, after a few messages, you don’t hear freedom FROM sin by Jesus Christ and the finished work of Calvary, it’s a good indication that the New Covenant Jubilee message (the true gospel of Jesus Christ) is not being preached by that particular ministry. JDG 


Note VI

Something Interesting

According to a quote from THE REESE CHRONOLOGICAL BIBLE, it was indeed the Jewish year of Jubilee when “...Christ our Passover... (was) sacrificed for  us” (I Corinthians 5:7).  I don’t know if it’s possible to prove this with certainty, but my personal belief is, it had to have been the old Levitical year of Jubilee which was still in effect during the life span of Jesus on this earth. JDG


Note VII

The Gospel!

Why do we emphasize the gospel so?

1.    Because the true gospel is the only means by which man can be reinstated to fellowship with God.

2.    Because IT is the account of the sufferings, the death, the burial, the resurrection, and the ascension of the Rock and Captain of our salvation (Jesus, the Christ); and how, by faith, IT was and is accomplished for and in us (Mark 8:31; Acts 1:11; 26:22-23; II Samuel 22:47; Hebrews 2:10; Ephesians 1:19-20, 2:5-6).

3.    Because IT is the foundation upon which all other Biblical teaching must be based (I Corinthians 3:10-15).

4.    Because “...IT is the POWER OF GOD unto SALVATION to...” ALL WHO BELIEVE IT from the heart (Romans 1:16).

5.    Because “...HE (Jesus) said unto them (and to all true believers), ‘Go ye into all the world, and preach THE GOSPEL to every creature’ (Mark 16:15).”

Verse by Verse


We now have several of Brother Leroy Surface’s verse by verse commentaries available on our web site.  Each include an integrated Study Course.  The first is on the book of Romans and is titled “THE FOUNDATION;” because the book of Romans contains the foundational gospel for the church of every generation. “THE FOUNDATION” commentary unveils the wonderful foundational truth of the gospel as revealed TO, preached, recorded, and defended BY the apostle Paul (Acts 20:29-30). The book of Romans explains in greater detail than any other New Testament book, THE TRUTH which Jesus was speaking of in John 8:30-36; THE TRUTH which Jesus said would MAKE the believer thereof FREE INDEED FROM SIN.  A correct understanding of the book of Romans is an absolute, invaluable necessity to a true and wonderful salvation. We recommend that you read the Romans commentary first.

We also have Brother Surface’s verse by verse commentary on the book of Galatians, titled “The Yoke of Bondage, and ”the book of Ephesians, titled “THE HABITATION.” In the not too distant future, we will also have his commentaries on the book of First John and the book of Hebrews. You will be astonished as these commentaries on the gospel books of the Bible reveal the great plan, purpose, and promises of God to Himself, and to His church; as presented by the apostles, Paul, John, and Peter, in their epistles to the churches of their day (and to the church of Jesus Christ for all time).  We urge you to read all of these commentaries, preferably, beginning with “THE FOUNDATION.”  Prayerfully read and study each of these commentaries, asking God to open the eyes of your understanding to the gospel, as presented in these New Testament epistles. JDG

In these commentaries, Brother Surface deals with EVERY VERSE of every chapter (except for the Romans commentary) which covers the first eleven chapters (those that deal primarily with “the gospel of Christ; Romans 1:16).  In the Romans commentary this includes the first eleven chapters, which are foundational chapters of the gospel.  Again, this is the reason we suggest you read “THE FOUNDATION” Commentary first.  JDG

Please join us in sending the gospel to a lost

and dying world by simply telling others about the


With your help, we can make this a global, gospel outreach.

This gospel web site has the potential of reaching souls around the globe with the true, soul saving gospel; but to do so, we must have your help in letting those souls know we are here. Hence, we are asking you to help us publicize our site by simply telling those with whom you have contact about it. There are presently more than 7.5 billion souls on this planet, with the numbers increasing daily at an astounding rate. Sadly, the vast majority of these souls are lost. We know this because there are multitudes upon multitudes who have never heard the name of Jesus Christ and/or the gospel of Him; most having put their faith and trust in false, dead religions with their false, dead, religious works. The magnitude of this harvest field is beyond our comprehension; and being out of sight, it can be easy, and possibly our wish, to disregard and put them out of mind. Nevertheless, they are there, waiting for someone to come and tell them “the good news” (“the gospel”) of Jesus Christ and of God, the Father of both Him and us. Many of these, perhaps unbeknown to themselves, hunger and thirst for a righteousness that will put them in right standing with a God who loves and cares for their soul. They wait in despair for someone to come with a message of hope; a message of “good news”; the “good news of the glorious gospel of the true God and His Son, Jesus Christ.” They wait for days and months and ultimately, years on end; untold millions (I believe billions) of  lost souls; dead and dying in their trespasses and sins. Many of these are ripe and ready “...TO HARVEST.  And he that reapeth RECEIVETH WAGES, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that SOWETH and he that REAPETH may rejoice together” (John 4:35-38). With your help, we can reach many of these lost souls with the soul saving gospel, before it is too late, and all those who join us in this effort will receive like wages as us for any and all souls this web site may be instrumental in bringing to the fold; whether through the sowing or the reaping. Likewise, we will all rejoice together in the harvest (Psalms 126:1-6).

 On the other hand, God may hold us accountable for those souls, who, through a tiny effort on our part, could have been reached with the soul saving gospel; yet we did nothing. God and His Son did their part to save the world when God gave His Son, and His Son offered His body on the cross (John 3:14-21; Galatians 1:4; Colossians 1:20-22).  Is it asking too much of us to simply tell others about a gospel web site that proclaims the soul saving gospel? The answer of course is NO! So please, help us reach those with whom you come in contact by simply telling them about this gospel site.  We are asking God to specially bless those who help us in this endeavor; so please, pray with us for the lost and, seemingly, unreachable; then tell everyone you know or come in contact with about this ministry, whosoever and wheresoever you, or they, may be. Jesus IS coming soon; I believe, very soon! So let us sow today, that there may still be time for a great harvest. With everyone doing their part, “The True Gospel Web Site” CAN be “a global outreach with “the true gospel of Jesus Christ” before He returns; whenever that may be.  I will tell you this day, Feb. 20, 2017, it is more likely than not, a few short years, not decades.  JDG
