Work for Jesus Christ
We need your help if you are a Computer Programmer, a Key Edit person, an Artist, a Translator, a Fund Raiser, an Email Correspondent and if you can donate some of your time to the spread of the Gospel around the world.
We also need PRAYER WARRIORS and strong Apostolic Teachers and Writers.  We are entirely unpaid except for the souls we can reach for Jesus.
We urge any RETIRED Solid Apostolic believers to take advantage of the low cost of living in many "Third World" countries and move to retire in one of them. As a resident you can begin home Bible studies and become unofficial missionaries. Followers of Jesus Christ Ministries can help you decide on the country, but at this time cannot finance your move.                      — S. M. S.

The Bible Apostolic Logo features the golden sun rising from a deep blue morning sky. The Bible as  the one foundation upon which we build and are establishes is marked open by the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Great Creator who so loved us  that He became flesh and dwelt among us, then bled and died to pay the debt for our sins. The golden sun arc doubles to represent the door of the open tomb from  which He arose triumphant. The descending dove represents the coming of the Holy Spirit to us and the flame represents the fire and power of the Holy Spirit in the life of every true believer. When asked if we are Fundamentalist, we are more Fundamental than they. Are we Evangelistic? Very! Are we Baptist? We place a higher value on Biblical water baptism than the Baptists. Are we Pentecostal? We definitely believe in the entire of the Acts 2 experience including that the promise of 2:38 and 39 is to all that the Lord our God shall call. Are we Apostolic? Our desire and goal is to preach, teach and practice that exact same Gospel that Jesus Christ and His Original Apostles taught and would still be teaching if here in person, as we prayerfully try to be their faithful representatives. — Samuel M. Smith, Editor, Presiding Elder

Up Way Main Greeting
UP WAY PUBLICATIONS'purpose is to write and publish Gospel literature from the perspective and standpoint of what Jesus Christ and His original Apostles would be teaching, preaching and practicing if they were here in the flesh in our present day.

       We must also point out the error of those who would pervert the Gospel from the original teachings of Jesus Christ and His original Apostles in any direction, whether in false plans of salvation that leave people living sinful, defeated lives, or in false standards of any kind that drive unbelievers away or prevent their ever coming to church to hear the gospel. Please read MISSION STATEMENT and What We Believe... for our complete doctrinal positions.

Definition for 
April 2012

Dispensation 1. Original Word: οἰκονομία, ας, ἡ Primary meaning of  oikonomia: stewardship, administration. Short Definition: stewardship
Definition: management of household affairs, stewardship, administration.
"a steward, managing a household") – properly, a stewardship, management (administration), i.e. where a person looks after another's affairs (resources).
[A "dispensation" can also refer to a special period of time (management). But this is a secondary (not primary) meaning of 3622 (oikonomía).] This is from Strong's Concordance.  The Apostle Paul is the only one who used the word in our Bible.
For true understanding, I will use the appropriate form. in the verses.
"For if I do this thing willingly, I have a reward: but if against my will, a management or administration of the gospel is committed unto me." 1 Corinthians 9:17
"That in the management of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:."
Ephesians 1:10  "If ye have heard of the stewardship of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward:." Ephesians 3:2  "Whereof I am made a minister, according to the stewardship of God which is given to me for you, to fulfil the word of God;." Colossians 1:24 KJV. "God has given me the responsibility of serving his church by proclaiming his entire message to you." New Living Translation (©2007). Notice that the only οἰκονομία verse even mentioning time, is speaking of a stewardship Ephesians 1:10 to be put into effect when the times will have reached their fulfillment--to bring all things in heaven and on earth together under one head, even Christ.
Serious Thought 
for 2012.
 

Why do so many children and younger adults, even those raised in good churches,  show lack of interest in Christianity and turn to the various Eastern, Metaphysical and Humanist types of RELIGION in this, the early 21st Century? Why is Christianity the only major belief system that is strongly opposed by many political leaders and judges, while Muslim, Buddhist and other Eastern religions are in political vogue?

Children, from an early age, can tell what we REALLY believe by what we do and say. We SAY we trust the Lord, but fret and cry when we face testing and trial and, like the Children of Israel, when Moses stayed on Mount Sinai longer than they expected, we turn to our own arm of flesh and friends, some of them ungodly, for advice. We also prefer the comfort of what is considered Orthodox, even if clearly contradicted by the Bible. 

They see when you say to obey God and the Law of man, but see you speeding while watching for the Police, parking in meters without putting in money when you know the metermaid (or man) has just made his hourly round.  They see the other acts of cheating and of the parents' false front of being such a good Christian.

But perhaps most serious of all is the total disregard many preachers, pastors, and Evangelists alike, have for what the Bible says when it conflicts with denominational or organizational positions, even though they claim the Bible as their absolute authority.

IN THE HOLLOW OF HIS HAND

The true life story of Samuel M. Smith


from WestBow Press division of Thomas Nelson Publishers.

Eighteen year-old Bible college student Samuel Smith is home for summer vacation when he is awakened in the middle of the night by a large and powerful man he recognizes by the light streaming in his partially open bedroom as his own father who already has a carpenters' level in a downswing toward his head. Miraculously escaping, young Sam returnswith Sheriff's deputies to pronounce his own mother dead.

That was only the first of six life-threatening attacks on the young missionary trainee. Now age 74, he has personally served as assistant pastor, pastor, short-term missionary to the Philippines and T'bilisi, Republic of Georgia, distributed tracts in Moscow and St. Petersburg, Russia just before and after the collapse of the Soviet Union. He was priviledged to preach in Baptist, Pentecostal, Evangelical and Seventh-day Adventist churches in T'bilisi and The Jesus' Churches and Philippine Bethel churches in the Philippines.
In The Hollow of His HandToday, more than seventy
native ministers in more than seventeen countries request literature and advice from Pastor Smith, usually making first contact as a result of the internet websites such as this one and Followers Of Jesus Christ Ministries. He has personally witnessed many miracles and through them all, has seen that he has been in the hollow of God's unfailing hand.
