Up Way Publications 37th Anniversary

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 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

 
The Best Doctor
The BEST DOCTOR 
 
Have you ever been to see a doctor and later found out that he had made a mis-diagnosis and as a result made an incorrect treatment of your ailment? Instead of improving, you suffered a new problem, such as impaired sight partial paralysis or frequent severe headaches. Furthermore, the treatment did not really solve the original problem either. Of course, today, smart lawyers then sue the doctor for mal-practice and you may receive a fairly large money damage settlement, but your health is still not corrected and you may be in constant pain for the rest of your life. You would gladly trade the money for relief of the pain.

Wouldn’t it be great to go to a physicial who knows exactly what your health problem is and what will cure that problem permanently with no undesirable side effects or complications? Believe it or not, you really can! 
This greatest of all doctors is none other than the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of Almighty God, the Communication, the Logos of God to the universe. He became flesh and as such, the Lamb of God to take away the sin of the world, but also,, “He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes, we are healed,” (Isaiah 53:5). This promise is to the church that followed the life, death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. "Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed." (1 Peter 2:24).
For many years, Christians were taught that pain and suffering must simply be borne with patience and trust that when earthly life ended all would be well in heaven.  But this teaching is NOT what Jesus Christ taught nor did.  In fact, from the earliest records of man, our loving Creator and Lord Jesus Christ wanted His creation to be strong and healthy. By the time of Moses, He had declared, “…for I AM the Lord that o    healeth thee.” (Exodus 15:26). and He gave Moses specific dietary and sanitation laws specifically to protect the Israelites from sickness and disease. The Kosher food issue was not just a matter of religious belief, but also a matter of healthy living. 
When Jesus walked the shores of Galilee, we are told that He healed ALL who came to Him. We also have numerous specific accounts of Him healing the blind, the leprous, the lame, the palsied, the issue of blood, the demon possessed and even raising the dead in two instances. Does this sound like He wants you or me to suffer sickness, disease, injury or demonic oppression or possession?

We know who "...ccmeth not, but for to steal, and to kill and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and to have it more abundantly." (John 10:10). Satan is the thief. But Jesus came to give life. And in his epistle to Gaius, the Apostle John states, "Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth." (3 John 1:2).
Now if you are not a true Christian; if, by the Grace of God, you have never Believed that you are a sinner and that Jesus saves, never felt the pricked heart of conviction of the Holy Spirit, have never Repented of your sins, have never been Baptized in water in Jesus' name and never received God's confirming gift, the Holy Spirit Baptism as first evidenced by speaking in tongues, then you are not able to claim the next two assurances that God truly wants you well. "Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?"
(1 Corinthians 3:16 See also verses 15-18 and 1 Corinthians 6:19). Now since your body  is the temple of the Holy Spirit and we knowby other scriptures that the Holy Spirit does not dwell in unclean vessels, is there any room in the Temple of the Holy Spirit for Satan's dirty devils of sickness and disease? We therefore have the RIGHT to command a clean sweep of the Holy Spirit Temple and that sickness and disease be gone.

And then, "Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him." (James 5:14, 15).

Why not trust The Best Doctor now? He is waiting to heal you if you only genuinely believe Him.
