John Whitcomb: July 30, 2018

This week on “Encounter God’s Truth” we continue the final topic in our series, “Basic Biblical Distinctions,” which was first taught before a Bible conference at Grace Bible Church in Elkhart, Indiana. We have the special treat once again to hear from Mrs. Norma Whitcomb, who discusses “The Need to Be Still.” This is a wonderful opportunity to present a message especially for the ladies in our audience, but it also marks a very special occasion. Mrs. Whitcomb is celebrating her birthday this Sunday, July 29, and we hope that many will join in sending her birthday greetings. Mrs. Whitcomb begins this week by rehearsing a very difficult story—the death of her first husband. We finished last time with the startling announcement she received about that, and we open with a brief review—as she describes their transition of coming back from the mission field in the Philippines shortly before his death. Through a lifetime of trials as well as blessings in their Christian experience, the Whitcomb's have perceived this reality, that God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end! With host Wayne Shepherd, we trust that their story will serve as an encouragement to you, also.
