TIMELESS MESSAGES

By Roy Burner - Minister of the Gospel


INTRODUCTION

Timeless messages are endless in value.  I have heard many messages ministered that I have never forgotten over the years; they are of value and at times even recalled to my mind.  These timeless messages, placed on this Webpage will be purged from time to time; out of necessity, but others will be added. 


Timeless Messages - Inscribed and Recorded

Job cried out: Oh, that my works were now written! Oh, that they were printed in a book (Job 19:23)!  Job received his desire; as his words are forever embedded in the Scriptures.  I have drawn many times from previous timeless messages of great men of God who have since passed on but their words have been recorded for others to benefit from. 

History would have eventually died out; had it not been recorded for future generations.  It is promised in God's Word that God's timeless message will endure forever:  Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away (Matthew 24:35).
