   In these anxious days of stress, turmoil and strife; of revolution and economic collapse; of war and fear of war; of confusion before a bewildering onslaught of creeds, dogmas, fables and false teachings, the PLAIN TRUTH makes its humble and modest appearance.
   The PLAIN TRUTH comes with a definite mission. It comes in a sincere effort to help lead those who honestly are hungering and thirsting after righteousness out of this modern confusion of tongues, and into the TRUTH as it is in Christ Jesus.
   The Master said, "Ye shall know the TRUTH, and the TRUTH shall make you FREE." And, praying to the Father in heaven, Jesus said, "THY WORD is Truth."
   The real TRUTH is simple and plain, not hard and difficult. Jesus said "I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and revealed them unto babes." (Luke 10:21).
   Then why is there so little understanding today? Let the Word of Truth answer: "The fear of the Lord is the BEGINNING of wisdom; a good understanding have all they that DO HIS COMMANDMENTS." (Psalm 111:10). The Saviour said: "My doctrine is not mine, but His that sent me. If any man will do HIS will, he shall KNOW the doctrine, whether it be of God." (John 7:16, 17).
   Thru the words of the Scripture we must be saved and sanctified. In them we have eternal life. By them we shall be judged. It is important that we UNDERSTAND.
   The first condition is WILLINGNESS. The precious words of Scripture are for doctrine, for REPROOF, for CORRECTION, for INSTRUCTION in righteousness (II Tim. 3:16). Are you willing to be reproved, corrected, instructed, by its words? Can you honestly say, with Jesus, "Not as I will, but as THOU wilt" regarding what you believe and do, in order to inherit eternal life in that wonderful Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world?
   Then let us diligently STUDY to show ourselves approved unto God, RIGHTLY dividing the Word of TRUTH (II Tim. 2:15), first examining ourselves to be sure we are WILLING to receive and obey it, humbly asking God for wisdom (James 1:5), permitting His Spirit to reveal to us the golden nuggets of TRUTH from this veritable treasure-mine of God, and saying, with David, "How precious are thy thoughts unto me, O God!" (Psalm 139:17).
   May you receive a rich blessing from this little paper, and, in these last solemn hours of earth's history, find the way into the "secret place of the Most High," safely abiding, thru the woes and judgements to come, "under the shadow of the Almighty." (Psalm 91:1, 9, 10).
