A Declaration


The  declaration of the good news of salvation, the Gospel of 
Jesus Christ, to the  unbelieving  world . But is this  responsibility
and privilege reserved solely for the pastor, missionary, and evangelist?
Definitely not! Every believer is responsible for presenting the Gospel
to a lost and dying world. What do you tell unbelievers about Christ? You
must explain what He accomplished on the cross and how anyone can rec-
eive  this incomparable gift. Your guiding principle is faith alone in Christ
alone. You are the point of contact in the unbeliever's search for meaning
and purpose in life. Without faith in Christ and an eternal future, his life
is ultimately meaningless. When a loved one, a friend, or even a stranger
believes in Christ as Savior from your presentation of the Gospel, you will
experience the inexpressible reward of serving our Lord through witnessing.

My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my
heart and my portion forever.

Greatest Decision

Victory Over Death

The greatest decision we can make is the one that prepares us
for death and dying-- the decision to personally believe in Jesus
Christ for eternal salvation. Therefore, when a Christian loved
 one dies, we  celebrate  the death of  that believer  as a victory.
Death is God's victory. He gives that victory. He gives that victory
to us by determining the time, the manner, and the place of our death.
God's decision to take a believer home is always fair and timely. This
edited transcript provides comfort from the Scripture and the reassurance
that Jesus Christ Himself has provided victory over death. Available in
two sizes: a pocket-sized booklet, ideal for enclosure in sympathy cards
and letters, and a full-sized book, suitable for memorial or funeral services.

For many years Bible classes taught  by R. B. Thieme Jr, have provided daily 
spiritual food for his congregation. Publications, audio recordings of his classes
on MP3 CD, and video recordings of his classes on DVD are available WITH
OUT CHARGE or obligation from R.B. Thieme Jr, Bible Ministries.

Not For To Day


They will cease, Distortions have permeated contemporary Christianity
making this one of the most controversial statements in the Bible. Millions
of believers  today profess  to speak a language  they do  not understand, 
claiming a manifestation of the baptism of the Holy Spirit and evidence of
a superior relationship with God. The animation and enthusiasm of their
displays have infiltrated denominations and sects throughout the Christian
world. The spiritual gift of tongues, prophesied by Isaiah, was designed for
a specific divine purpose-- a warning sign to Israel of impending national
destruction. This gift, bestowed by the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost
A. D. 30, would  be an  unmistakable sign of Israel's spiritual failure and
imminent divine  judgment and would also  herald the  new Church Age.
But this spiritual gift is not operational today. The final authority for resolving
the theological conundrum of tongues is the infallible Word of God. Subjective
thinking and emotionalism mislead and obscure the truth of Bible doctrine.
Only the pertinent passages from Scripture, correctly translated and accurately
interpreted, can reveal to  the believer the truth about tongues.

All of God's promises have been fulfilled in Christ with a

Do not Retreat, Advance

Why do believers sometimes act like unbelievers?
Are they truly saved? Yes, if they have believed in Jesus Christ
they are saved for all eternity. But any Christian who habitually
revolts against God's plan is in reversionism--spiritual decadence
brought on by perpetual carnality and rejection or neglect of Bible
doctrine. Reversionism explains why believers emulate unbelievers.
In  reversionism  sin  becomes  a way of life, yet God  in His grace
 always provides the way of recovery. Avoid the pitfalls of reversionism
through  rebound and consistent spiritual growth. With Bible doctrine
in your  soul  you  can  distinguish  between  human  viewpoint, the 
expression  of  Satan's  diabolical  genius, and  divine viewpoint, the
manifestation of the thinking of Christ.
 Instead of retreating in reversiomism
advance and reach the objective, the supergrace life!

Be In Perfect Harmony

A Quartette Of Fools

There is no more beautiful sound in all the world than four people
 blending  their voices in  perfect harmony. Conversely,  the most 
lugubrious ululations emanate from voices clashing in  a discord
of sound. Such is the quartette of fools: the atheist fool, the rich 
fool, the shameless fool, and the Christian fool. Three members
cannot sing, cannot harmonize, yet the fourth produces the finest
harmony in the world! Find out where you fit into this quartette.

The Pursuit Of Happiness

Scripture declares King Solomon "greater then all the kings of the earth
in riches and wisdom." From  an ivory throne overlaid with pure gold,
Solomon ruled  the prosperous kingdom of Israel. Vast treasures, costly
goods, and rare  novelties like apes and peacocks enriched his noble court.
Yet Solomon  did not have happiness. The Pursuit Of Happiness confirms 
that only  through fellowship with God and the pursuit of His Word  can the
believer attain stability, contentment of soul, and a true and enduring happiness.

Words Of Comfort

Psalm Twenty--Three 

The comforting  words of the  familiar  twenty-third  Psalm resound  through
the  centuries. Written  by David in  his darkest despair, this song of hope holds
a treasure of God's grace and provision for all believers. David faced a revolution
led by  his beloved son Absalom. Forced  to flee for his  life, he relied on the true
Source of  his  security and  prosperity-- the  Lord  Jesus Christ. David's  journey 
through  the  death-shadowed  valley gives  us insight into how a  mature believer
endures  suffering  in  disaster  and  triumphs over  his  enemies. Like  David the 
 believer  who  pursues  Bible doctrine  and  advances to spiritual maturity will be
rewarded with  blessing and prosperity in  time and in  eternity. "The Lord is the
 one  who  keeps  on  shepherding me,"  David  wrote, "I cannot  and do not lack

Go To The Throne

Is a great weapon of the spiritual life! Through prayer ypu
have instant access to the throne room of God to communicate
directly with God the Father. But to pray effectively, you must
know how to pray. God  has established basic ground rules to 
follow.  Armed  with  these  procedures, you  will  be  able to  
confidently  approach the  throne of grace and express gratitude
to God, intercede on behalf of others, and petition for your own
personal needs. God has mandated you to "pray without ceasing."
Wielding the power of prevailing prayer, you have the opportunity
to support those in need; to participate in the ministries of pastors,
missionaries, and evangelists; to sustain and deliver the nation.
God  answers prayer in fantastic ways, but always so that His will
and plan might be fulfilled.

What Or You Thinking

Mental Attitude Dynamics

Behind every face is a mental attitude, a manner of thinking.
You are what you think! God  mandates  that you think divine
viewpoint--- the mind of Christ---a perspective of life based
on the  infallible Word of God. When Bible  doctrine is the
foundation of your thinking, you will have confidence  and 
stability under all circumstances, an orientation to grace, an
inner  happiness that  produces capacity for  life, love, and 
blessing, and a relaxed mental attitude toward people.

Life And Death

Memorial Tribute

decision  is based on His  perfect wisdom and integrity.
Those of us left behind can rejoice in the knowledge that
the departed believer is in a state  of perfect happiness with
the  Lord. Furthermore, the death of  a loved one is often a
reminder of the shortness of time we have on this earth. By 
making the greatest decision of our life---choosing to believe
in the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior--- we can be prepared for
