Excerpt from SATAN

It is the glory of our high calling that ‘Christ is all’ (Col. 3:11), and at first there may be a natural reaction to devoting time and space ‘all about the Devil’, but a second thought will show that this is illogical, for we might as well say that we need to devote no thought to the nature and consequences of sin seeing we are forgiven, or exhibit no interest in prophecy seeing that our calling is related to a ‘mystery’ (secret) which was hidden in God.

If there is a mighty spiritual foe, who, though fallen, is extremely wise, surely he will need no instruction from us in the art of camouflage, and those believers who have come to the conclusion that there is no such thing as a personal Devil, are just aiding and abetting him in his evil designs. If it be extraneous to study what is written concerning ‘That old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan’ (Rev. 12:9), then the writers of Scripture have made a serious mistake, for this entering the pages of Scripture in Genesis 3, and under various titles and symbols leaves the trail of his horrid track until disposed of in Revelation 20. The following diagram may help to convince the reader of the integral part Satan plays in the outworking of the purpose of the ages. The word translated deep in Genesis 1:2 is, in the LXX, the same as that translated ‘the bottomless pit’ in Revelation 20. If that which hath been is that which shall be (Eccles. 1:9), we realize how this principle works out in this connection. The garden planted eastward in Eden, with the Tree of Life, in Genesis 2:8,9, is repeated in Revelation 22:2.

The End 1 Cor 15:24

We shall return to this analysis later; at the moment we are concerned with the question of identity. The eighth Psalm which looks back to the first Adam and onward to the last refers to an ‘enemy’ that is to be ‘stilled’. As an explanation to the bewildered disciples as to why the

earthly Kingdom proclamation, together with its King, had been rejected, the Saviour said: ‘An enemy hath done this’, and explained that ‘The enemy that sowed them (the tares) is the Devil’ (Matt. 13:28,29,39). Peter admonished his readers:

‘Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour’ (1 Pet. 5:8).

The book of the Revelation is admittedly a book of signs and symbols, many of which cannot be taken literally. But shall we say that ‘The Lion of the tribe of Juda’ (Rev. 5:5), ‘a Lamb as it had been slain’ (Rev. 5:6), the One Whose name is called ‘The Word of God’ (Rev. 19:13) out of Whose mouth ‘goeth a sharp sword’ (Rev. 19:15), ‘the Root and the Offspring of David’ (Rev. 22:16), are only symbols of Government and not titles of a Person? When we read:

‘There was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, and prevailed not’ (Rev. 12:7,8), shall we say that while Michael is really the Archangel and not merely a symbol, the dragon is only a symbol and not a person? John follows this reference with a definite statement, saying:
‘That old serpent called the Devil, and Satan’ (Rev. 12:9). … continued in book

Charles Henry Welch

Charles Henry Welch (called C. H. Welch) (1880–1967) was a Christian dispensational theologian, writer and speaker.

During his lifetime he produced over 60 books, booklets and pamphlets, and more than 500 audio recordings. His most significant works are 56 bound volumes of the Berean Expositor,[1] a Bible study magazine edited by Mr. Welch from 1906 until his death in 1967, and 10 volumes of The Alphabetical Analysis.[2] He also taught his dispensational approach of the Bible with lectures throughout Great Britain, the Netherlands, France, Canada and the United States.

Welch promoted the Acts 28[3] position which he believed "is indeed of the utmost dispensational importance to the believer today. It marks a frontier."[3] He believed the dispensational truths of the Acts period (29 – 62 AD) differed greatly from those written after the Acts period, (see Meeting with Dr. Bullinger below).

Bible Training College

After his conversion to Christianity, young Welch actively attended church and various Christian meetings and lectures. During one of the classes he received a prize for writing “The Figurative Language of Scripture”. Afterwards Welch was offered a position at the Bible Training College of London as part-time general secretary. While attending the college he studied advanced Greek and Hebrew, while teaching an elementary Greek class. It was during this time that Welch began to develop his dispensational approach to the Bible.

As his knowledge of the Scriptures grew, Welch disagreed with the direction of the Bible Training College which was forming a primitive church based upon the Sermon on the Mount and Acts chapters 1 and 2. As a result of this conflict, Welch resigned in 1907 and began meeting with a small Bible study group. It was during this time that he created The Berean Expositor.

Meeting with Dr. E. W. Bullinger

After his resignation from the Bible Training College in 1908, Welch read an article in Dr. Bullinger's "Things To Come" which he believed contained an anomaly; namely, if Israel had been set aside in God's plans at Acts 28:24–28 (approximately 62 AD), then the epistles of the New Testament written before and after this event should reflect such a change.

Welch wrote to Bullinger and soon met with him to discuss the relation of Paul's 14 epistles to the boundary line of Acts 28. Although Bullinger had written many times previously concerning Israel's setting aside in God's dealings at Acts 28, he had continued to write about the New Testament epistles without reconciling the fact that some were written before, and some after Acts chapter 28.

At this meeting, Welch put forth the idea to the man for whom he had so much respect. Mr. Welch records that after pondering his proposal, Dr. Bullinger declared, "That scraps half the books I've written. But we want the Truth, and the Truth is in what you have said."[6] Dr. Bullinger agreed, the place of Acts 28 indeed had an important bearing on interpreting the New Testament. Then they both "discussed implications that arise from observing the relation of Paul's epistles to that boundary line" as follows:[6]


Although Dr. Bullinger died four and half years after the meeting, his last book titled: “Foundations of Dispensational Truth” [7] reflected his understanding and acceptance of the division of the Pauline epistles written before and after the Acts 28 dividing line.

After the meeting

When Dr. Bullinger was writing The Companion Bible there was little time to continue his Things to Come journal. As a result, he asked Welch to take over as editor. His first article was titled, "The Unity of the Spirit (Eph 4:3): What is it?".[8] He continued to write dispensational expositions in the journal until it ceased publication in 1915.

Although incomplete at his death, Dr. Bullinger's Companion Bible[9] was fully published in 1922. Within The Companion Bible's appendixes is written an exposition by C.H. Welch titled, The Eight Parables of the Kingdom of Heaven in Matt. 13, Appendix 145. Although Welch wrote 24 more articles for the Appendixes related to the Acts 28 position, this was the only article published. Perplexed, Welch wrote to the committee in charge of completing The Companion Bible for an explanation. Their response was: "We do not know what Dr. Bullinger would have written, we can only go back and adopt what he has already written, although his last book, The Foundations of Dispensational Truth proves that he fully accepted Acts 28 as the dispensational boundary and the segregation of The Prison Epistles."[10]

In 1943, Welch adopted the Wilson St. Chapel in London as his church building, which he renamed The Chapel of the Opened Book. To preserve Welch's works and research, The Berean Publishing Trust and The Berean Forward Movement were established.[/expand]
