JD: This last week one of our dear friends Paul Bubar finished his race here on this earth and graduated to heaven. So I thought that it would be great for us to spend some of our time together this week talking about this great man of God.
DJ: Well Paul entered the presence of the Lord at 87 years old and was definitely a uniquely gifted man of God who served the Lord with Word of Life Fellowship for around six decades in a number of key roles over the years. Back in August Paul suffered a severally debilitating stroke just a few days before his daughter’s wedding. Then she and her new husband and Paul’s wife and others cared for him over these past 9 months in Florida, as they were never able to return to their home near Word of Life in the Adirondack of New York State.
JD: Paul had a fruitful, a long ministry and we praise the Lord how the Lord used Paul Bubar over the years.
David I think it’s important for us to take time to do these kinds of tributes when these giants of the faith in their journey here on earth head to the heavenlies. It makes me wonder about who will come behind them in the next generation.
DJ: Well Jimmy I share your concern. As you and I were talking on the phone about this it occurred to me that a lot of these great men we’ve lost over the last few years had really already established themselves as theologians, scholars, and or ministry leaders by the time they were in their 40s and early 50s. We desperately need some theologically conservative guys with vision and passion and drive who are willing to step up to the plate. Who will be the next generation of great theologians, Bible teachers, and evangelist, pastors and missionaries, authors, and ministry leaders the possibilities are unlimited. I’m also encouraged because I’ve traveled around the world and taught the next generation for years. I’ve been able to connect to some younger guys and so I honestly hope there are more younger guys out there maybe even a few listening to us right now who are willing to say to the Lord I’ll do anything, anywhere, anytime at any cost.
JD: David James with a tribute to Paul Bubar, a Christian statesman who recently went to be forever with his Lord in the heavenlies.
We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
It was an honor for Dave and me to spend a few moments discussing the life and ministry of a great Christian statesman, my friend Paul Bubar. I believe that we should honor those who have served the Lord for so many years and that explains the life and ministry of Paul Bubar. This report reminds me of the apostle Paul’s last exhortation in II Timothy 4. Paul said preach the word in season and out of season. In other words preach the word all the time, any place, and under any circumstance.
