DEAR FRIENDS IN CHRIST,
It is three years since we wrote a Foreword to a completed Volume: three
years of war, destruction and anxiety, yet three years of wonderful preservation,
guidance and provision. A passage of Scripture that comes vividly to mind in
this connection is that of Acts 26: 22:
"Having therefore obtained help of God, I continue unto this day, witnessing . . . . ."
Although the "help" was "of God", Paul acknowledged that it had been
mediated through many willing hands and hearts. The word "help" in this
passage is a military term and means an auxiliary or reserve ready to hand
Without this "help of God" The Berean Expositor would never have
weathered the storm, and our thanks go out, under God, to the willing and
ready "help" extended to us in our hour of need. Without this "help of God"
the Chapel of the Opened Book would never have been found, nor would the
removal from the country to stricken London have been attempted, or have
In 1941 we wrote:
". . . . . we have confidence that in so far as The Berean Expositor is in line with
the will of the Lord, so we may expect that these precious promises will be once
more fulfilled in our experience."
This confidence has been honoured beyond our expectation. We asked for
bare continuance, and He has led us through fire and water and has brought us
out "into a wealthy place" (Psa. 66: 12).
We commend the witness to the prayers and the fellowship of all who value
the Word and its "right division", and who realize what a door of opportunity
may be opening to us all with the coming year.
Yours for Christ and His Word,
