Foreword
Matthew 24:35 (Amplified) Sky and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away. We are living in a perilous world that is slowly passing away at an increasing rate. Global events have more than substantiated this. Hence, instead of dwelling on things that are passing away, I chose to promote those things that are sure and permanent. The period between my birthday and the day I return to Jesus is called the dash. I believe that dash represents the Book of Remembrance in heaven. We have a say what that dash will be. So, what will my dash or my Book of Remembrance contain? As I read the Bible, I am convinced that each and every beloved child of God has been commissioned to share the Gospel in His Word. Hence, the purpose behind what I am doing.

Vision
I believe with all my heart that God is raising a group of people in whom He will manifest all His glory and majesty for the advancement of His Family through the Church, of which Jesus Christ is the Head. A time has come when abundant health and wealth in the Church is the norm and the lack of them will be an anomaly. May we live to see it manifested and be a part of these glorious days.

About Dr E W Kenyon

Essek William Kenyon (1867 - 1948) was an evangelist, pastor, president of a Bible Institute, author, songwriter and poet. He is best known for the numerous books that he authored that are still in great demand today. Kenyon’s writings dramatically unfold the glorious truths of the revelation given to the apostle Paul in simple, concise language. He wrote for the spirit man, addressing the heart more than the head. Understanding the Father-heart of God, who we are in Christ, and the authority and privileges of the believer were central to Kenyon’s message. In his writings Kenyon calls the believer up and out of the mire of traditional unbelief into the deep, rich treasures of our redemption in Christ. Many lives have been transformed reading his simple, yet profound books. The Early Years Born to a poor family in New England in 1867, he grew up with little education. When he was dramatically converted in a Methodist prayer meeting at the age of 17, he immediately began to enthusiastically win souls. An obvious gift and passion emerged for the lost, which would govern his life. His gift as an evangelist began to bear abundant fruit. He also vowed he would become an educator. As he encountered the struggles that often enter the life of a new convert, however, Kenyon did not have the necessary foundation to stand. He had not been discipled in the basic doctrines of the faith and older ministers had infected him with doubt. Years later, he lamented the fact that he had not received the Holy Spirit in these early years, either. So E W Kenyon gradually slipped away from the Lord. He walked in darkness and broken fellowship for about two and a half years. In 1893, newly married and living in Boston, he and his bride attended a service at the Clarendon Street Baptist Church, then pastored by the respected Bible teacher A J Gordon. At the service, the Spirit came mightily on Kenyon and he forever gave himself back to the Lord.

He wanted to follow the pattern he had seen modeled by George Muller in trusting God for everything. Restored to his Lord and to his calling, he immediately began to win souls to Christ. Within a few months he was ordained among the Free Will Baptists and was pastoring one of their churches. He pastored various churches in New England for a few years, and then started an independent work. He left the denomination so that he could trust the Lord completely for his finances, unhappy with the ways money was raised in the churches. He wanted to follow the pattern he had seen modeled by George Muller in trusting God for everything. As Kenyon continued to minister, many young people approached him about training. He began to consider beginning a Bible school. He knew from his own bitter experience the necessity of grounding new believers in the faith. He had fallen away because of the lack of such grounding. Around the turn of the century, he opened the Bethel Bible Institute. Many young people came to learn the Word of God and the life of faith. It was entirely a faith work. No tuition was charged and the teachers were not paid a salary. Everything was done through prayer. Well educated Bible teachers gave up good positions to join Kenyon in training young people and live the life of faith. Missionaries were trained and sent from the Institute around the world and around the U.S. The Later Years Kenyon left the East Coast in 1923 and relocated to Southern California. He preached for many pastors in the area and he was extremely well received. Miracles of healing were common when he preached. Eventually, Kenyon pastored a work in Los Angeles which grew to about a thousand members. He had two books in print and a monthly publication. An enthusiastic audience greeted him at each of his many weekly services. Kenyon relocated a third time. This time he moved to the Northwest, eventually settling in Seattle. He resumed radio ministry which he had begun while in Los Angeles and soon found an appreciative audience for his teaching. Public meetings soon evolved into a church. New Covenant Baptist Church, Seattle Bible Institute and The Herald of Life publication were soon in full swing. Kenyon’s writing ministry flourished in his Northwest years. He revised his first two books and published many others. His daughter Ruth, finished compiling two near-completed books after his death. These edifying books continue to refresh, encourage and illuminate those who read them, challenging them to possess all that Christ purchased for them in His Finished Work. If you haven’t read any of his writings, you will be blessed as you feast on his unfolding of our great salvation.

DID E.W. KENYON BELIEVE IN UNIVERSAL SALVATION?
In an article in Charisma magazine (May 2002) highlights the controversy over Tulsa, Oklahoma, pastor Carlton Pearson's embracing of a doctrine known as the "Gospel of Inclusion." This teaching proclaims that everyone is saved, but just doesn't know it. In the article, Pearson notes that he first started thinking about the inclusive doctrine after reading E.W. Kenyon's writings. Someone unfamiliar with Kenyon's writings might easily draw the conclusion that Kenyon believed in Universal Salvation as this teaching is sometimes called. So, did Kenyon believe and teach Universal Salvation? No. He didn't. Kenyon taught that the Finished Work of Christ paid the price for the sins of the whole world. The merits of Christ's death, burial and resurrection were sufficient for every man woman and child to be saved. But no one can be saved unless they personally repent and receive Christ as their Lord and Savior. E.W. Kenyon was ordained among the Free Will Baptists. The Free Will Baptists objected to the Calvinist idea that Christ had died only for the elect - those whom the Calvinists believed had been predestined to Salvation. The Free Will Baptists believed in what was known as general atonement, which stated that Christ had died for everyone, but only those who received Him would be saved. Kenyon believed and taught this perspective throughout his life and ministry. Kenyon's first book, The Father and His Family, which was first published in 1916 while he was president of Bethel Bible Institute, was the foundation for all his later writings. Chapter five of this book is entitled Hell. When Kenyon prepared the second edition in 1937 he added some quotes from other authors at the beginning of each chapter. For the chapter on Hell, Kenyon chose a quote from the famous preacher Henry Ward Beecher. The quote ends, "When I doubt the teaching on Hell, therefore it will be because I doubt the Divinity of Christ." Kenyon did not believe in any type of Universal Salvation.

So where did Carlton Pearson get the impression that Kenyon was teaching this concept? It is possible that Pearson misunderstood Kenyon's teaching on the Legal and Vital sides of Redemption. Kenyon taught, influenced by the apostle Paul, that our redemption unfolds in two distinct aspects: The Legal and the Vital. The Legal side is what Jesus accomplished for us by His death, burial and resurrection. This is sometimes referred to as positional Truth. The Vital side of redemption is what God does in us in the New Birth and Infilling of the Spirit. This is the experiential side of our redemption. In describing the Legal side of our Redemption, Kenyon would point out that all that needs to be done for our salvation, healing, deliverance from sin and victory in life has already been done legally. It is bought and paid for by the Finished Work of Christ. But none of it is ours until we believe and receive it. So Kenyon might say all men are saved potentially. But he never suggested that all men would be saved experientially because the Bible doesn't teach that they will. In chapter eight of The Father and His Family, entitled How Can God Be Just, Kenyon points out that God has provided a way to be saved from judgment so that Man is without excuse if he doesn't accept God's provision in Christ. God would be perfectly just to confine for Eternity those who reject His offer of Redemption in His Son. Clearly Carton Pearson failed to grasp Kenyon's full teaching on this point.

Book Review
New Creation Realities – E W Kenyon
Overview
We have found the secret that the psychologists long have sought. It is the "inward man", it is the re-created spirit; it is the part of man with which God deals. It is really an unveiling of what we are in Christ today; of what He says we are; what He has made us to be in His great Redemptive work. The Pauline Epistles must ever stand as the work of a supergenius or a divine revelation. It lets us into the inner secret of God's mighty purpose in the Incarnation. The four Gospels give us the earth walk of the Master, but the Pauline Epistles give us a revelation of what happened on the cross, what followed during the three days and three nights until Christ was raised from the dead. We get the living picture of the entire substitutionary work of Christ. It is the legal background of our Redemption. This challenging book should be studied by every earnest student of the Word.

Chapter 1: The Living Word
Our Perception of the Word
How we perceive the Word determines the reality of God in our lives. The Word is the Father speaking to us as though we are sitting at His feet doing that one thing needful. [Luke 10:42]. The Word is designed by the Father to take Jesus’ place in His absence. Man’s word is usually dead before the printing is completed. God’s Word is impregnated with the very life of God, it is Eternal. According to Strong’s Concordance, the Logos is the written Word. Rhema is the blessed Holy Spirit bringing to our minds the written Word in times of need; making the Logos Word the Rhema Word. We store up or treasure up the Logos and the blessed Holy Spirit will make it Rhema in the emergency of the hour.

Jesus said: “According to your faith (the Word in me), so be it with you”. [Matthew 9:29]

According to what the Word is to me, so be It [The Word] with me. Like medication being infused into my blood stream, let the Word get into my system and become a part of me.

The Word is a Person
The Word is living because it is a Person. personality. Hebrews 4:13 And no created thing is hidden from Him; all things lie open and exposed before the eyes of Him with Whom we have to reckon. The Word has eyes! Reading the Word is making contact with Jesus Himself. The Bible feeds the inner man – our spirit. It imparts faith and builds love into our spirit. Romans 10:17 – faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of Christ. It takes on

1 Thessalonians 2:13 Wherefore I also give continual thanks to God because when you heard from me the Spoken Word of God, you received it not as the word of man, but, as it is in truth, the Word of God Who Himself works effectually in you that believe. (Conybeare). Note: The early Church did have first NT Epistle Paul The Book of Thessalonians was thethe written Word. wrote.

Becoming Christ-like
Christianity is what the Word says about Redemption, the Body of Christ or the New Creation. We become Christ-like in the measure that the Word prevails. 2 Corinthians 3:18 - And all of us, as with unveiled face, [because we] continued to behold [in the Word of God] as in a The Word is Christ revealed. The Word is always NOW! mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another; [for this comes] from the Lord [Who is] the Spirit.

The Word imparts love to our spirit [Romans 5:5]. With that love, we speak God’s Word. Speaking God’s Word with the love that God first gave us makes His Word living, powerful and real. This love is not conjured up with the human mind or effort. It is imparted as a gift to us.

The Word Is Food
Scriptures say that the Word is to be taken as food. Matthew 4:4 Man shall not live on bread alone, but by every Word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. Jeremiah 15:16 The Words were found, and I did eat them. Thy words were unto me a joy and rejoicing of my heart. Proverbs 4:22 - For they are life to those who find them, healing and health to all their flesh.

Job 23:12 I have not gone back from the commandment of His lips. I have treasured up the words of His mouth more than my necessary food.

18

The Word Is A Seed
When we read the Word, we are implanting a Living Thing in the heart. In Romans 10:8, it is called the “Word of Faith”. It is His Word that gives faith in us. It is God’s faith expressed. Romans 10:17 - So faith comes by hearing [what is told], and what is heard comes by the preaching [of the message that came from the lips] of Christ (the Messiah Himself).

God works in us through the seed of Faith [His Word] that He planted in us. God is a faith God and uses words to do thing. Hebrews 11:3 By faith we understand that the worlds have been framed by the Word of God.

God created the Universe with words. What shall He be not able to create in us?

This is how God works effectually within us to carry out His purpose – through His Word. [Philippians 2:13].

Loving The Word is Loving God
John 14:15 If ye love Me, ye will keep My commandments [The Word] . He that loveth Me and keepeth My Word, he it is, you see, that the Father loves. John 1:1 - IN THE beginning [before all time] was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself. In Joshua 1:8, God told Joshua to meditate in His Word day and night, that is, to live in It. In John 8:31, Jesus said to “Abide in My Word”.

Luke 12:34 - For where your treasure is, there will your heart will be also. This is not the same as “Where your heart is, there your treasure will be” Make God’s Word my treasure, and my heart will follow. It is not make God’s Word my heart, there my treasure will follow.

When I make God’s Word my treasure, then truly I will love God with all my heart, soul and mind. [Mark 12:30]. Just look at how much God loves us, His treasure. [1 John 4:10].

No one can serve two masters. [Matthew 6:24]. Cannot love the world by minding the cares and anxieties and love the Word.

It brings to mind the Parable of Parables [Mark 4]. If we mind the Word, we cannot be minding other things. If we mind other things, we choke the Word. And when the Word is choked, so are the blessings in the Word. Does it therefore mean that we just seek back and do nothing and be irresponsible?

God forbids! But seek first God’s kingdom and His Righteousness and all these things shall be added to you.
[Matthew 6:33].

23

The Word Is Jesus’ Authority
The Word has the same authority as if Jesus is standing in the room and speaking it. How did Jesus calm the storm? How did Jesus heal the sick? How did Jesus multiply the little to feed multitudes with plenty of leftovers? He spoke. Today, He is speaking His Word in our lives and situations through the Bible. Are you lacking in any way? Then speak His Word. Give it voice! It is the same as Jesus speaking It! “The Lord is my Shepherd. I shall not lack. [Psalms 23:1]. Then stand still and see the salvation of the Lord. [Exodus 14:13,
Ephesians 6:13].

Jesus is the Armour of God
The entire armour of God described in Ephesians 6:13-17 refers to Jesus! Not convinced? Let’s look at the Scriptures together.

Ephesians 6:13-17 (KJV)
13

Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

Truth Jesus is the Truth.
John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. John 1:17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.

Righteousness Jesus is Righteousness.
2 Corinthians 5:21 For He hath made Him to be sin for us, Who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.

26

Peace Jesus came to reconcile us to the Father.
Romans 5:1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:

Faith Jesus is our Faith.
Hebrews 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Salvation Jesus is our salvation.
Romans 10:9-10
9

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
10

Word of God Jesus is the Word.
John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Conclusion
By the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, we hope we have been able to achieve our mission of spreading the Gospel in His Word. It is our desire that you make feeding on the Word of God the thing of first importance in your life. We may not agree on anything. So long as Jesus is our Lord and Saviour, we are on common ground. Whatever differences in opinions we may have in this world, we remain one in Him. And when Jesus returns to bring us home, we shall laugh at these differences over coffee.
