Endtime Ministries...Australian Bible College Course
The Calvary Bible Fellowship of N.Z. has given permission for an Australian Diploma Course
to be constructed along the needs of our Despatch subscribers.

GENERAL INFO RE THE BIBLE COLLEGE COURSES
The Latter Days of the Church Age have brought havoc doctrinally amongst
the denominations. Strange "revivals" and demonic experiences are pouring
out upon the churches of apostate Christendom in a deluge which is beyond
the expectations of any of the people of God, although we have realized
that these Latter Days would bring "doctrines of devils". This sad state
of affairs has left many Christians between a rock and a hard place! Not
wanting to leave off worship and study of the Word in fellowship, they
have either stayed in a heretical church, or they have left and have attempted
home fellowship in some way. Not always successfully!
Calvary Bible Fellowship ~ in Australia.
This booklet has been prepared to introduce Home Bible College
studies which will, we pray, go a long way to meeting the needs of those
who are caught between the rock and hard place. A Biblically sound, God-honouring
series which takes the student or group through hundreds of hours of thrilling
exploration in the Word of God has been prepared by Dr. Dennis Spackman
of New Zealand for his own people.
ENDTIME MINISTRIES will be restructuring the above in co-operation
with Dr. Spackman to meet the needs of 'Despatch' subscribers and
others in these heretical days. For all people interested in the Word of
God, they will be offered as a non-profit making venture in order to keep
the true Church in vital, living study of the Word of God.
There will be also added studies

WHAT DO THESE STUDIES GIVE THE STUDENT OR GROUP?
1. The studies are pre-millennial,
dispensational, pre-tribulational and they seek to give an overall understanding
of rightly dividing the Word of the Lord.
2. The studies come in written notes
and audio tapes which feature Dr. Spackman, or related subjects by Wendy
Howard. The studies are presented with gentleness and clarity of speech.
There is strong meat throughout, but no person need feel unable to move
into these studies as they are for all who love the Lord and his truth.
Plenty of time is given to find Bible references and take notes. Do not
hesitate to do the studies because of average study abilities, the student
can proceed at their own pace.
3. The studies have a climax, a DIPLOMA
of BIBLE STUDY to be gained on completion of a number of sections. Each
section completed brings the student to a envelope of questions which will
then be corrected by Endtime Ministries' staff, under the direction of
Wendy Howard, entitling the bible student to a certificate.
4. These certificates will culminate in the above
Diploma accredited by Dr. Dennis Spackman, of Calvary Bible Fellowship.
5. The studies are suitable for a number of
alternatives. An individual could study in the home setting; a small group
could use them as a supplement to their Church programme; Home Fellowships
who worship and meet together apart from any denominational connection
would find the studies a treasure trove of blessings; and the studies could
be used to actually begin a Home Fellowship where one does not already
exist. Invitations could be sent out to friends and neighbours thus giving
a wider distribution of the glorious truths of God's Word. Church attendance
at denominational level could continue as well, certainly.
6. One set of audios could be purchased collectively
for study and discussion as a group. Each person is responsible to register
separately for their own packet of questions, which will be posted out,
and they would then answer privately, posting individually for marking
to Endtime Ministries, to receive their certificates, and eventually their
ARE HOME ASSEMBLIES BECOMING A POSSIBILITY FOR THE IMMEDIATE FUTURE?
This is a question which sincere Christians who love Truth must ponder
before the Lord. In some instances Christians can find themselves in a
sorry plight, going from church to church without finding any which are
not sinking rapidly into fake "revivals", fearfully evil doctrines, ecumenism
under the National Council of Churches and even immorality, greed and covetousness!
Some believers are indeed blessed as they attend that rare place of refuge
- a church with a staunch Bible-based, God-fearing Pastor, but these are
becoming like finding a snowflake in summer.
The early Church of the New Testament met in homes, there is no reason
why this should not happen more in the future. However, these gatherings
should never be allowed to degenerate into pockets of "the blind leading
the blind". The Christians need sound, solid, correct teaching which honours
the Lord God Almighty. These studies from Calvary Home Fellowships are,
we believe, an answer to prayer about these very serious times we are living
Access here a material prepared how to run a Home Assemblies
THERE ARE PERHAPS TWO LEVELS OF HOME FELLOW-ASSEMBLING.
first kind of group the Christians in the fellowship merely want to meet
for worship, prayer and Bible study together, to encourage and sustain
one another. The outreach is limited, the zeal issues more in prayer and
personal witness than in combined witness. There is concern for the lost
and for the plight of the churches in apostasy, but the fellowship members
may be gentle folk, perhaps women and children predominately, who seek
to speak of the Lord to others only in a person-to-person way. This kind
of home fellowship should not bring angry persecution from any denominational
leaders or members. The numbers may never go beyond half a dozen, or even
just three or four perhaps.
The Christians in the next kind of home fellowship, however, may be
strongly evangelical in an organized sense, with members who are bold in
outreach, keen to bring others into the fold. The outreach may include
exposing the Latter Day heresies and exhorting those who are being deceived.
These kind of home fellowships may well grow quickly in numbers, and seem
to the denominational leaders in the area to be a serious threat, and even
to be "evil", especially if exposing of false doctrines and movements is
involved. Persecution could happen, which is more obvious if the home fellowship
is in a small town. The leaders of such a group should therefore be strong
in the Lord, willing to count the cost realistically before launching forth.
There should be much prayer and submission to the will of God. DO NOT carnally
stir up a hornet's nest, forming a group of hot-heads who go off "half
cocked" ! MATURITY in God is vital, OBEDIENT STABLE Christians are needed,
who love others sacrificially, not spiritual `rambos'.
The studies we are presenting will be greatly helpful in drawing your
members into the maturity and God-fearing stability which is so sorely
ARE YOU ... A SERIOUS STUDENT OF THE WORD, ON AN INDIVIDUAL LEVEL, NOT INVOLVED WITH A Home Assembly?
Then this course of studies will be of great benefit to you. Dealing with
the basics of Christianity, and also delving deeply into the Word on more
than a superficial level. No Bible-based church could find fault with the
doctrinal stance as given below. As an individual you will find yourself
maturing in living faith and trust in God as never before.
ARE YOU A LEADER OF AN INDEPENDENT HOME Assembly?
These studies will enable you to bring the group into a unity in the Word,
avoiding the problem area of splitting up because of differences in belief
because "I don't see it that way"! A great many people today do not submit
to the Scriptures, THEY decide what is "correct" and fit Scripture around
their own notions. The dogmatic "the way I see it" is highly contagious!
Bring everyone into a solidly structured agreement under God, and the self-styled
"expert" will learn to submit to God's Truth.
HAVE YOU ACTUALLY LEFT THE DENOMINATIONAL SCENE?
If you can answer "yes" to this, then you may be seeking the Heavenly Father
about the possibility of forming a Home Fellowship. These studies would
be excellent to begin such a group, every one could start off on the same

Many modern "Christian" books are, sadly, indoctrinated by New Age beliefs,
humanism, psychology and Selfisms. (self-love, self-worth, Self-esteem).
There are still good books available on the modern scene, as noted above,
but caution is needed in purchasing these. (updated editions are being
tampered with, e.g.. Scofield and Strong Texts). This list is a very short
suggestion only, from our own library.
There are of course many other books by these authors than the ones
mentioned above, they are only a guide line.

the occultic background of various bible versions around in his time, but
Strong was well aware of unreliability as far back as 1894
Dr. Dennis Spackman -
Some of the cassettes[notes used only now], charts and studies
used in the Australian Diploma of Bible Study series have been prepared,
and presented by Dr. Spackman who preaches and teaches
at the Calvary Bible
