On the Potter's Wheel3 of 62
This book is dedicated to the mother and father who bore me and raised me to a stagewhere I could make decisions for myself.To the teachers, many of whom will never see this dedication, as they have passedaway, but who shaped my life through the learning process at the public school and highschool in Coffs Harbour, Australia.To Dr. Billy Graham, whose words about Jesus Christ became real to me, as I listenedto him speak in Sydney in 1959, and who made me really examine my lifestyle and where mylife was headed.To God the Father, whose love was so great, that He forgave me my wrongdoings andwas prepared to break down the barriers around me, destroy the old pottery mould andcommence to re-shape me into an image, He has specially chosen for me.

Prior to commencing to write this book I have published two others, namely:
"The Gifts, Administrations and Offices of the Holy Spirit,"
published in 1986. This isa series of teaching sessions on the operations of the Holy Spirit, in the churches today.The second book published in 1987, entitled:
"In Search of
, a book whichexamines the question of the various religions in the world today and how we can identifythe source of all truth in Jesus Christ our Lord, in each of them.My wife had been positively suggesting that I should also write down some of theexperiences we have had in various countries as we have gone there to minister.As is customary before I commence every book, I dedicate it to the Lord in prayer, but this time, I also asked the Lord to give me the book title name, seeing as how the Lordhas had a major part in putting the various chapters of my life back into place.While sleeping, I received in a dream a clear picture of a man sitting at an old
wheel, working away at his craft. I was also reminded of the Scriptures of the prophet Jeremiah, in chapter 18, which is reprinted here from the Amplified Bible published by Zondervan Bible Publishers, of Grand Rapids Michigan, USA
"Arise and go down to that potter's house and there I will cause you to hear My
words. Then I went down to the potter’s house and behold he was working at the wheel.
And the vessel that he was making of clay was spoiled in the hand of the potter, so he made it over, reworking it into another vessel, as it seemed good to the potter to make it.
