Please pray about historic books and Bibles being sold

Postby shorttribber on Mon Dec 04, 2017 3:50 pm

Most of you already know that I restore historic Bibles and Christian books. We are really in a financial shortage since I had been scheduled too many hours at the auto parts store I had intended to only work a few hours a week at over the past year. There were so many reasons for them give me those hours but it just kept dragging on, I should have quit there I guess. Anyway, all those low wage hours took up very precious time needed in my shop to make the real money needed for us.
Now I have come to the place where I need to part with many of our books and Bibles on ebay. the buyers seem to be very few, or they are not paying the amount that many of the books should be getting. Please pray that there will be people who will begin bidding and buying the items I'm putting out there for sale.

Thank you brothers and sisters. Love and blessings to all.

It breaks my heart to hear that you've got to part with your beloved collection. I shared my feelings with the Lord and also my hopes that He will make a way here......I really LOVE that you are so devoted and ambitious with your collection, and most of all that you actually use these resources that you've accumulated. Im sorry to hear you have to part with any of them, but I do know that nowadays, times are really getting tough, and we're all having to make lots of sacrifices......
healthcare has cut my family deeply.....not just the medical issues, but the cost of it. For a family of 3.....2500.00 is the cost of our new policy....self employed.....it's outrageous and tough to meet the demands being put on all of us.....
Im rambling...and off track......I just understand your difficulties, as we're having them, too....is what I wanted to share!

Thank you all for all the prayers :grin: Got my first bid on one of them...do hate to see it go though GS...it was my oldest one...a 1585 work by Thomas Bilson. He, along with Miles Smith were the final Overseers of the 1611 KJV.

Wow ST, I can see how difficult it is to depart from such an historic and important book. I’ll keep you in prayer for getting interested buyers who can pay what is worthy of the works. Pray for us as well, we are also selling items on eBay. Some things from my parents, some from jobs, and some from just accumulating stuff. God bless
Gal 2: 14-19 But when I saw that they were not straightforward about the truth of the gospel, I said to Peter before them all, "If you, being a Jew, live in the manner of Gentiles and not as the Jews, why do you compel Gentiles to live as Jews? We who are Jews by nature, and not sinners of the Gentiles, knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law; for by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified. But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is Christ therefore a minister of sin? Certainly not! For if I build again those things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor. For I through the law ( the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus ), died to the law ( the law of sin and death ) that I might live to God. Parenthetical remarks added are mine.

Thank you Jericho,
Just as an update....I have made a deal with one buyer who was inquiring about the William 1794 Young Bible I have out for sale.
The buyer has a user name of JewforJesus :grin: I messaged him about a two volume 1716 John Basket printed Bible that I have here that once belonged to "William Cooper, minister to the Jews" it has his hand written notes in it from many passages of bible prophecy. He is somewhat unknown now, but was well known as a preacher then....Thousands of Jews came to Christ under his ministry....Thousands even in a few Days! Almost early Church like!

We have made a deal on the William Cooper Bible, and some reprinted copies of some of William Cooper's sermons to the Jews in 1788! I'm very excited to have that Bible go out to be a Blessing to Jewish Christians :banana:


I will update on this later!

Also sold my 1741 Foxes Book of Martyr's


Blessings to all...please continue to pray ok?

Isn't it neat how the William Cooper Bible is going back, along with his reprinted sermons to minister to the Jews again?

I think that's Sooooo Neat! doing a little more research on it....I found that Cooper's sermon "The Promised Seed" (Correction: it was the sermon, "Daniel's 70 weeks", not the "promised Seed") was preach on my youngest child's birthday, hundreds of years ago!

The buyer didn't have any money to work with so we did some trading and a bit if gifting... :banana:

God does work in mysterious ways, doesn't He? You may never know (until eternity perhaps) how many Jews will be blessed by your gifting and even conversions is not beyond possibility. After all, many Jews today have found Jesus through Christians who challenged them with OT books and the 300+ prophecies about Jesus.

Just this morning I was reading in Ezekiel 47 about the river that flows out from the temple, and I realized, Ezekiel didn't see all the fruit trees as he was going downriver. Only when he turned back did he see all the fruitfulness from this river that flows out from the temple.

Much love,

Absolutely brother. He always hears us when we pray. :praying:

I believe that something good is about to happen
I believe that something good is on its way
He has promised He would open all of heaven
And brother this could be that very day!

When God’s people humble themselves and call on Jesus
And they look to heaven expecting as they pray
I believe that something good is about to ha a ap pen
And brother this could be that very day!

Just wanted to share a wonderful praise report on the book and Bible sales!
I almost posted on here to please pray for us because we were, emphasized "Were" in a real financial pinch until just yesterday and today!

I mean, running on credit cards and going higher in debt!

But yesterday we sold a Bible for almost $800 and today we sold Both of our showcases with the books and the total for those two was $1,200!

So the total for just two days...when we were at our worst need was $2,000!

:banana: :banana: :banana: Praise God for his faithfulness to us! :banana: :banana: :banana:

Hey ST, thanks for sharing the great news of our great God’s faithfulness. He’s an on time God, He is Jehovah Jireh our provider. You’ve inspired me to update on my thread brother because the Lord has been good to us as well. God bless you and your family and even come into greater and greater blessings as we draw closer to His return.

It's so awesome to live with such peace as I have acquired over the past two or so years. Literally, I do not worry and have so many things that so many people would think I was insane about not worrying about. I live with peace because He Lives and He loves us.....and He is here with each one of us that wants His involvement in our lives....and the end result is....I KNOW I am ok, here, now and in the future to come.
God IS Awesome.
