Advancing the Revelation of Truth
Mr. Sellers, whose Scripture studies are displayed on this Web Site, fell asleep some years ago in February 1992. His studies were always progressive and he was not restrained by adhering to any previous position that he might have held, if his developing understanding of the Scriptures led him to deny that which he previously taught.
This attitude of mind revealed him to be a true studier and believer in The Christian Scriptures. Unfortunately it cannot be said of many such teachers because of their misplaced desire to give a higher priority to supporting those that 'follow' them, rather than acknowledging previous errors in understanding. Such 'followers' are quite willing to accept what a Scripture teacher tells them without proving the statements for themselves, without developing a personal understanding of their Godly privilege of accepting the teaching of The Spirit of Jesus Christ Himself.
A Christian knows that his relationship with God is personal. He is answerable to God for what he believes and therefore what he is. The character of a Christian is an expression of what he has accepted from what God has said, that is, what he has come to believe. If he has only accepted the thoughts and studies of another Christian without proving them from The Word of God for himself, he is open to the criticism that he believes and trusts in an authority other than God. This is the basis of Sin.
Many Christians and teachers of The Word of God have come to understand that the activities of the God given Teachers described in the record of the Acts of the Apostles, cannot in these days be accepted, because of the change of God's Administration at the end of that period. Contrary to the record of that previous Administration, Christian Teachers to-day have no God given authority. If they had, they would teach and interpret The Word of God without fault. As any discerning Christian will have realized, this does not happen to-day.
The increasing maturity of a Christian moves towards a full appreciation of God's knowledge within the bounds of that which He has chosen to reveal through His Word. That Word tells us that there is a Spiritual battlefield, the effects of which are recorded from beginning to end. For the Christian to-day, that battle is won. Christ, and those in Him, are seated on God's Right Hand.
A Christian desires the character of Christ, against which The Evil One continually probes. This personal and intimate conflict is our continuing experience and bears upon our increasing maturity, by illustrating the devices of The Evil One. Peter writes to the new Christians in the land that we now call Turkey, explaining to them the means by which they can begin to grow and mature:
Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, all evil speakings, As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:PE1 2:1-2
and Paul tells the Corinthian Christians, even admonishing them, concerning their need to mature in order that he can feed them with meat, weaning them from 'the sincere milk'.
And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ. I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able.CO1 3:1-2
finally, the writer of the letter to the Hebrews tells us what our maturity depends upon:
For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. For every one that useth milk is unskillful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil. Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto maturity not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, [Heb 5:12 to 6:1]
At this time, knowing the plan and purpose of The Evil One is as important as studying the plan and purpose of God. After all God has had to deal with the Deceiver over many millennia, even from before the time that he tempted our parents Eve and Adam.
Over many decades, it has been the persistent purpose of a small group of Christians in the U.K. to follow this principle whilst studying The Word of God. They were pleased to have the studies of Mr. Sellers as a qualified guide to the increase of their Spiritual knowledge. During this period, much has been realized, discussed and developed beyond the published understanding of Mr. Sellers.
Some puzzling developments in Astronomy, Space travel and the hierarchy of evil are now beginning to be better understood in the light of The Word of God.
There is an improved understanding of the purposes of this present Administration of God's Grace because of the discovery of the correct sequence of the section of the Apostle Paul's letters which govern it.
The Scripture Truth regarding the so called 'earth power' is now understood.
This Web Site will be under constant development even as is the understanding of the Christian Scriptures by the small group referred to above.
