THE PRACTICAL POWER OF OUR HOPE
By the Rev. Dr. Bullinger.
(At the Liverpool Conference, Nov, 1894.)
The return of our Lord from heaven and the hope we have in Him is the most practical subject in the Word of God. We know that those who hold this hope are looked upon, by those who are strangers to it, as being fanatics who have got hold of something which is purely imaginary, and something that we could do very well without. But I have a list of a hundred precepts taken out of the New Testament, each one of which is connected with this most blessed hope. One might safely say that there is scarcely a duty or a responsibility connected with Christian living that is not immediately linked on to, and thus bound up with, the hope of our Lord’s return.

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
(E. W. Bullinger; The Church Epistles; written in 1900)
(When quoting scriptures, from the Rotherham Emphasized Bible New Testament, I will substitute the Hebrew words
Yahoshua (yeh-ho-shoo’- ah) for Jesus, Yahweh and Elohim for God and the LORD and ruah for pneuma (spirit).)
"But we do not wish you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them who are falling asleep,––lest ye be sorrowing, even as the rest also, who are without hope; For, if we believe that, Yahoshua, died, and rose again, so, also will, Yahweh, bring forth with him, them who have fallen asleep through Yahoshua; For, this, unto you, do we say, by a word of the Lord,––that, we, the living who are left unto the Presence of the Lord, shall in nowise get before them who have fallen asleep; Because, the Lord himself, with a word of command, with a chief–messenger’s voice, and with a trumpet of Yahweh, shall descend from heaven,––and, the dead in Christ, shall rise, first, After that, we, the living who are left, together with them, shall be caught away, in clouds, to meet the Lord in the air:––and, thus, evermore, with the Lord, shall we be! So then, be consoling one another with these words" (1 Thess. 4:13-18). (Rotherham Emphasized Bible)
Instruction was necessary as to those who had been taken away by death. The Thessalonian saints were "ignorant" as to what takes place after death, as all would have been had not Yahweh, who alone can know, seen fit to reveal it to us. Read Complete PDF Article
The Book of Hebrews
"E. W. Bullinger believed that the Gospel of John, Hebrews and the Book of Revelations
were written for those Hebrew believers, who will live in the Day of Yahweh (Tribulations
or the Age of the Beast), which occurs after the Parousia of the Lord for his Body as
recorded in I Thessalonians 4 and I Corinthians 15. His statement would
explain the apparent contradictions between the seven Church Epistles, written to the Body
of the Christ and the book of Hebrews. Our discussion will focus only on the book of
Hebrews and Revelations." Read Complete PDF Article
The Dispensational Position of John's Gospel; or,
The Fig, The Olive, and the Vine
BY DR. BULLINGER, JULY, 1899
The most cursory reader of Scripture must be aware of the special and unique
position occupied by the Gospel of John. Its contrast with the other three Gospels is most
marked. It stands out by itself; while the other three form a group by themselves, and are
generally known as "the Synoptic" Gospels, because they give a similar synopsis of the
John's Gospel Read Complete PDF Article

The Rich Man and Lazarus
Written in 1902 by E. W. Bullinger
(Edited by Chuck Cunningham, 2005)
"In dealing with this Scripture, and the subject of the so-called "intermediate state", it is important that we
should confirm ourselves to the Word of Yahweh, and not go to Tradition. Yet, when nine out of ten
believe what they have leaned from Tradition, we have a thankless task, so far as pleasing man is
concerned. We might give our own ideas as to the employment's, etc., of the "departed", and man would
deal leniently with us. But let us only put Yahweh's Revelation against man's imagination, and then we
shall be made to feel his wrath, and experience his opposition." Read Complete PDF Article
The Rights of the Lord Yahoshua
By THE REV. DR. BULLINGER.
(At the Dundee Conference, June, 1894.)1
IT is characteristic of man that he is educated and trained for one object—that is, to
stand up for his rights. That is the only part of his education that perfectly succeeds, and
everywhere we see man standing up for his rights. Woman, too, is now standing up for her
rights; and the People are standing up for their rights. Is it not time that someone should
stand up for the rights of the Lord Yahoshua? He has not yet got His rights in this world,
but He is going to have them; and now He would have His children witnessing for those
rights, and speaking for Him while He is absent, and while those rights are in abeyance. I
propose to bring them before you in connection with His four titles—the Son of Man
(Adam), the Son of Abraham, the Son of David, and the Son of Yahweh. Read Complete PDF Article
The Use of the Divine Titles
A Proof of Inspiration.
By THE REV, DR. BULLINGER.
(At the Keswick Conference, 16th July, 1895)1
I PROPOSE to commence by taking one of the first questions that have been sent
in to be answered during the Conference, and the Question is- "Why do we have the word 'God' in the 1st of Genesis, and 'Yahweh God' in the 2nd
chap, and 'Yahweh' in the 4th chap.; and are these titles used apparently
indiscriminately?" Read Complete PDF Article
The Eighteen Emendations of the Sopherim

Reprinted from the "Quarterly Record of the Trinitarian Bible Society" for October, 1885.
Important as is the question of faithful translations, still more important must be the accuracy of the text which is translated.
Hence while the Trinitarian Bible Society has protested against many corrupt versions, it has protested still more against taking the Papal Vulgate of Clement VIII, as a text from which translations are to be made, inasmuch as it puts an unpardonable slight on the Hebrew and Greek originals.
