From Nigeria

Here is an email I received from Pastor David Ojelade of Lagos, Nigeria. I have been in contact with Pastor David for about five years now. It will be my pleasure to send him a new copy of the "Framework" book:




Pastors with "Framework" Book

I continue to filter through 400 emails this weekend sent to Generation Word. Several pastors from Ghana have sent a photo of themselves with the "Framework" book. We receive hundreds of request from foreign countries for books, but the cost of shipping one book is $20. That $20 is just for shipping a single book. We have a contact in Maryland that ships containers or crates of supplies and other materials. For us the cost to ship a box of 20 books to Maryland is $20. This is much more reasonable so we ship 100-160 books at a time. When the crate arrives in Ghana pastors and bible colleges then distribute the books to pastors. We are shipping 120 books again this week. It is a simple thing to do and fairly effective once the correct contacts are made.

Email from Temale - Northern Region, Ghana

Generation Word received this email last week concerning the "Framework" books we have sent to Ghana. We will be shipping more this week.

Greetings in the name of our lord Jesus Christ who cares for us. How are you ? I hope by the grace of God you are doing fine as I am doing here in Ghana. First of all thanks to Rev. Abdulai Baba. I am the Wife of the Pastor Addey Daniel of Revelation Of Truth Ministries in Amamsaman-Accra. Already I just came to Ofankor Bible college to improve upon my calling to serve and assist my husband spiritually since our church is situated in a difficult village. It is very difficult to get access to quality materials to read, especially Study Bibles and even ordinary Bible to distribute to church members. This makes it very hard to
win souls for christ, but i hope with this gift I will be able to impact much upon my spiritual life in Christ, since my aim alway is to organize the youth, the women teaching them the ways of the Lord and keeping them together to make sure the keep to the word of God.

After using your Books for a couple weeks I can say it the best comprehensive teaching Book I have ever read, and I am very happy and want to say thanks to your ministry Generation Word and Rev. Abdulai Baba for helping our ministry to reiceve one Box of your Books to support our church leaders. Thank You So Much.

Western Wall Tunnel in Jerusalem

This summer Toni and I walked through the tunneled portions of the Western Wall in Jerusalem. We could see 20 feet below the tunnels along the courses of Herodian ashlar stones to the pavement of the first century street. Details of these perfectly preserved ashlars can be seen with their 2 inch cut margins that create a 1/2 inch raised, smooth boss. Each course of ashlars is inset 1/2 of an inch to provide stabilization of this wall of stacked stones that was built without cement. Also, the Master Course Stone, which is 41 feet long and weighs 500 metric tons, could still be seen stabilizing the wall. The Romans of 70 AD could not move this stone so they chipped away at it, but eventually gave up and let the rest of the wall stand. The chipped corner of this huge stone can be seen.

Comments from Around the World

I am going through Generation Word emails today and have copied some comments below. I have about 300 more emails to read this weekend, so I will be adding to this list:
  • As a Muslim convert to Christ. the zeal to reach out and minister is strong. Please, assist me with literature/bibles to help me reach out to more people especially my friends in Islam. I also ask for study bibles & good christian books for personal studies.
  • Thank you so much for the word of God that you are doing to make the truth be known to the people of God ,i have visited you site and i was so much impressed in it i request you to be part of this ministry we work together for the kingdom of God. (Uganda East Africa)
  • After reading the first page of your book it opened up this great desire to want to learn and search out the Word of God on a greater level.
  • A big thank you sir for being a great blessing to me and to other people in my school (West Africa Theological Seminary here in Lagos, Nigeria). Your book hope for Americas last generation, your handbooks and other materials you sent are wonderful treasures to me. Coming from a Catholic background, the church History in one of the handbooks blessed me so much. You, your family and your ministry are blessings to our generation.
  • Just wanted to say a quick thank you for the online OT maps! I'm teaching from the book of Genesis for our adult Sunday School class & I've been spending hours looking for maps that would coordinate w/ Gen. 14! I came across your site & found exactly what I was looking for! Thank you for your time & dedication to spreading the Word!!
  • I been sooo "blessed" by hearing the 76 individual sessions of your Genesis series. I can't adequately convey how the LORD has blessed me through your teachings on the book of Genesis. I been a Christian since acknowledging the Lord's call on my life over 40 years ago. I'm currently teaching the youth at one of the Calvary Chapel's here in the southern California area. I've studied diligently the Word of God over the years in an academic environment and and have listened to some of the top teaching that is made available on radio and on the internet here in southern California. I can say with all sincerity that I've never been so excited to listen to anyones biblical teaching and exegesis of the Scriptures, as I have with yours. I have learned more about the book of Genesis, by listening to your Genesis series, than I have in all the years I've studied it. I got so blessed by the Genesis series that I've immediately began listening to your book of Ephesian series.
  • Firstly, I just wanted to say how much I have been blessed by your teaching
    and the accessibility of lectures on the web. I live in Australia and I work full time and have a young family. I am desperate for solid bible teaching, but my local church (whilst is a great church in many ways) falls down in teaching the bible. We preach but don't teach - it's something I want to change. I love your approach, verse by verse, line by line and also your humility in bringing the completeness of 'views' on the bible, even though you have your own strong views about certain things - you still manage to put forward everything and encourage us to 'think'. So I wanted to encourage you, please don't stop teaching!
  • The reason for the email is your book, 'FRAMEWORK For Christian Faith (A Treasury of Christian Information and Bible Teaching)', which Ralph recommends highly to aid me in a book on which I am now working. He suggests your book will save me a great deal of research. Please let me know if your book is still available and how I may go about getting a copy. Thank you very much for your help.
  • I personally congrat pastor Galyn wiemers for his unending generosity shown to millions of people all over the world in providing these books free.I am from India and am coming from a poor family.I wish I had enough money to totally support your ministry.I also wish and pray that an inspired man like Pastor Galyn should be in India too.India is totally immersed in pagan worship.Christianity here is far away from what the Bible teachers.They are led by blind pastors.If pastor Galyn had been here,it would shed some real truth to us.If gods grace can work miracles that grace will one day give me money so that I can personally meet Pastor galyn.I am longing to be with you Pastor.God of Abraham, Jacob,Issac and moses will help me because he is the living God for me.Thank you very much pastor.
  • Your studies that you sent on cd has been a constant source of inspiration and making my foundation strong in the Pure Word. I thank you once again. (India)
  • Your book is phenomenal!!! I'm AMAZED at the info you have included in it!
    It is GOD-INSPIRED, no doubt!!
  • I'm working at developing an online Bible school to train German pastors and church leaders. I've been teaching in classroom settings for about 10 years and would like to expand to meet the needs of more students. It's got to be in German, or I might just recommend the students to your website.
  • WOW!!!!! I was so impressed by all you have done: 2 books, cds, some awesome testimonials, etc.. You have really gone above and beyond. It always makes a coach proud when one of his former players succeeds and excels!! And brother you certainly have done that. I started the Generations book last night and am looking forward to it. Keep up the good work. And remind your boy, ZAC, to run fast, bear to the left and get to finish line quickly
  • The FRAMEWORK Books you sent to us are really revolutionizing our church and Bible Institute. We are opening a local language (TWI) School of Ministry as a Dept. Of our Bible Inst. Our Board has agreed to affiliate with your ministry and authorization to use FRAMEWORK as the sole Textbook in addition to the Holy Bible. We need your urgent reply.
  • I am a middle school youth leader at First Presbyterian Church in _______, IA and a member of our youth group brought the Framework book and the Last Generation book to our meeting. I was intrigued by the outline styles and was told by her to email you to get a copy.
  • Thank you very much! I just finished listening to your teaching on Daniel 11. It was great. I got so much material to work with. I appreciate your enthusiasm for the Word. What a blessing your work is. I am anxious to continue into the Maccabees.I will spread the word about your website.
  • I discovered you today while searching during my lunch hour Sermon enjoyed your lesson on Manasseh, Josiah and Jeremiah. This led me your feel very hungry :-) for your book "Framework". I lead a midweek bible class and also preach on occasion and I feel a bound copy of your book for be so helpful. I notice normally you do not ship to the UK and I can understand why. Would you reconsider for my case.

Will the Stones Still Fall?

A thought just came to me while I was editing some photos I took in Jerusalem this summer. Lately, I have been investigating the Preterist view of eschatology in response to some ridiculous comments made by certain individuals concerning my eschatological views. (By the way, this has led me to a Hank Hanegraaff book called "The Apocalypse Code" which is an illogical explanation of eschatology built on a random misalignment of facts and unassociated points. The book disappointed me and convinced me that Hank Hanegraaff is indeed the Bible Answer Man and nothing more. He may know some facts, but demonstrates his inability to construct a rational argument with his scattered collection of information. Although, that may be more the fault of the failed eschatological position that is being defended, then Hank himself. I have ordered several other Preterist books including RC Sproul's. I have been promised Sproul is less angry than Hank and much more logical and exegetical.)

My thought concerned Jesus' words:

Truly, I say to you, there will not be left here one stone upon another that will not be thrown down. Matthew 24:2
Jesus was referring to the Temple Mount complex that Herod had built beginning in 19 BC and was in a state of continuous construction up until Jesus' ministry and after. Most eschatological views (including both Hank and myself) consider this to have been fulfilled in 70 AD when the Romans broke through the walls of Jerusalem to burn the city and the temple. In the months that followed the Tenth Roman Legion systematically tore down everything on the Temple Mount including most of the Temple Mount walls. This is my point. A lot of Herod's ashlar stones used to build the Temple Mount walls and gates are still in position. I saw and photographed stones that Jesus walked by in the south wall including one stone with the door jamb of the Beautiful Gate. In the Rabbinic Tunnels along the north section of the west wall we saw several courses of the same Herodian ashlars in near perfect condition still in place. One particularly large stone was too large for the Romans to dislodge. Their efforts to break it one piece at a time can still be seen in the upper right corner of the stone. Yet, this stone still sets as the master course stone holding the wall together with its enormous weight. The Western Wall Prayer Plaza has seven Herodian courses above ground and seventeen untouched below ground. I could mention many more including the lintel above the Double Gate.

If Jesus was talking about buildings on the Temple Mount being totally removed then this was accomplished in 70 AD and the events that followed. But, if Jesus was talking about every stone associated with the Temple Mount then there is still some work left to be done. My point is this: Are we still waiting for a more complete and greater destruction of this Temple Mount that will result in literally saying "there will not be left here one stone upon another that will not be thrown down?"

This could be part of Jesus' words that may have a double meaning:
Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. John 2:19
There will be a Temple built on this very Temple Mount someday that is not built be human hands. (Ezekiel 40-48)

I am not making a doctrinal statement, nor am I even saying I believe anything less than Jesus' words were completely fulfilled in 70 AD. But, I am wondering if Jesus is going to finish the removing of all these stones before the next phase of eschatology begins?
