In Memory
It is with deep sadness that we announce the death of our beloved brother, Harold Timothy Ensor, age 96, on Tuesday, September 20, 2022.  Harold was a U.S. Navy veteran of World War Two, serving in the Pacific and European campaigns.  He was a retired Sergeant of the University of Tennessee Police Department after 32 years of service.  Of eight children of William McKinley Ensor, only two of us survive, my younger brother, Charlie, and me.  Harold is survived by his only child, Michael Ensor.
He was a faithful servant and child of God. We often express sorrow for such "loss", but Harold is not lost to us.  We know he is in Heaven, so he's not lost.  Heaven grows sweeter each day.

The Tabernacle In The Wilderness is considered by many to be the crown jewel of Old Testament typology.  Every element, and each piece of the structure, as well as the ministrations and rituals were a shadow of the coming Person, work and Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ.  The Tabernacle is an awesome and majestic portrait of the Gospel story of redemption from sin.  As God dwelt among the Israelites,  the Tabernacle represents the coming of Messiah, Who would take away sin by the offering of His own blood.  Available from the publisher direct by clicking the "Order" button below:


"The Divine Essence Of Christianity" is an invitational, the "altar-call" of my ministry. It is a compilation of six essays from my sermons on salvation.  First is "The Love Of God," from John 3:16.  Second is "God In Flesh," The Birth Of Jesus Christ.  Third is "The Cross And Why The Saviour Had To Die."  Fourth is "The Bitter Cup," from our Lord's prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane.  Fifth is The Resurrection Of Jesus Christ." The final message is "Almost Persuaded," which is an appeal to procrastinating sinners to accept Jesus Christ as Saviour.  It is written in 109 pages, large typeface and comfortable line spacing. It is a tool for the soul winner to reach the lost.  Available from the publisher direct by clicking the "Order" button below:

"Pass The Fried Chicken Please" (and other notions about Baptist preachers), has been released.  This book is a recollection of the author's forty years in the ministry of church evangelism, revival, camp meeting and special church services.  The people, places and events are real, as is the impact each has made on the heart of this thankful preacher.  Available from the publisher direct by clicking on the "Order" button at right:

The Fourth Edition of the Bible Institute student workbook is available in an 8-1/2" x 11" printed text.  This handsome soft cover, 231-page book is reasonably priced and ships directly from the publisher to you.  The outline format is ideal for classroom study and contains outline lessons designed for teaching and preaching.  The published text makes it the perfect solution for those who prefer to study from a printed text rather than at a computer monitor.  Available from the publisher direct by clicking the "Order" button below:


Preaching, writing and church work:

Work on a new manuscript continues, and we hope to have "Blessed Benedictions" ready for publication this year.  All these books are available through our publisher, LuLuPress.  My purpose in writing is  to leave a witness of the truth of the scriptures and a testimony of the faithfulness of God in my life for my children, and for those who follow this ministry.  Pray for these endeavors, that our Lord will be pleased to use them to His glory.
