This book contains an exposition of such subjects as: the Bible, the Trinity, Depravity, Redemption, Eternal Security, the Holy Spirit, the Church, Ministry Gifts, the Believer’s Walk, the Lord’s Supper, Baptism, Last Things, and our Mission and Commission.
It is doubtless a great surprise to the many who have never taken time to study this subject to discover that there are at least 12 different kinds of baptism referred to in the New Testament, and that of the twelve only five have any connection with a water ceremony. It is the plan of this study to take up these 12 kinds of baptism:
- Christ Baptizing with the Holy Spirit
- The Holy Spirit Baptizing into the Body of Christ
- Death Baptism
- The Baptism of Fire
- The Typical Baptism of Noah’s Ark
- Baptism for the Dead
- Baptism into Moses
- The Divers Baptisms of the Law
- Traditional Jewish Baptisms
- John’s Baptism of Israel for the Remission of Sins
- Christ’s Baptism by John to Fulfill All Righteousness
- The Pentecostal Baptism for the Remission of Sins
When we read our Bibles, it is usually easy enough to comprehend the individual words themselves, but when we consider the phrases, sentences, paragraphs and literary section found in the pages before us when we study God’s Word, it can be puzzling to us. The intent of this book is to provide the serious Bible student with the key that will unlock these puzzling aspects of Scripture by “rightly dividing the Word of Truth.”

Building on the words in his second letter to Timothy, the Apostle Paul instructs us to “rightly divide the Word of truth.” That admonition is carried out in what is called a mid-Acts approach to the study of God’s Word. Understanding that “the dispensation of the grace of God” (Eph. 3:2) began with the Apostle Paul, opens up the Scriptures to be understood in a new way, putting an end to many, if not all, of the confusions and seeming contradictions. It opens the vistas of the glory associated with God’s amazing grace.
If you are new to this dispensational viewpoint, you will find this book of great value as you study your Bible. Those who are familiar with a mid-Acts approach will find new insights into well-worn passages and new alike.
This study seeks to do 4 things:
- Define dispensationalism.
- Trace the word in the Bible.
- See the need for dispensationalism.
- Hear what other men of God have had to say about the importance of this truth.
