Eagle’s Wings Ministries

But they that wait upon the LORD
shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings as eagles;
they shall run, and not be weary;
and they shall walk, and not faint.
Isaiah 40:31

My name is Jerry (Gerald) Bouey. I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour on November 13th, 1992 and am a committed Christian. I am a member of an Independent, Fundamental Baptist church in Abbotsford , BC named Central Valley Baptist Church. (When this website was created, I was a member of an IFB church in Kelowna, BC, named People’s Baptist Church, which closed its doors at the beginning of 2021.) This site stands solely on the King James Bible and the preserved underlying texts (ie. the Hebrew Masoretic Text and the Greek Textus Receptus). The Bible is my sole authority in life and practice.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

My goal for Eagle’s Wings Ministries is for it to be a site for Biblically-based studies and devotions, to strengthen and build up Christians, as well as be a witness to those who don’t yet know Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour. There are studies here that will challenge you to walk closer to the Lord, devotionals that will strengthen your faith and exhort you to claim and live by Bible promises and principles, and there are studies that help clear up some of the doctrinal confusion that many are faced with day by day in their walk with the Lord.

Many studies on this website were written by me, but I have also included more studies by other men of God. Please check out my other blogs listed below for many other studies and articles, as well as godly, Bible-based poetry.

Table Of Contents

If you read only one article on this website, please let this be it:
God’s Simple Plan of Salvation
It concerns the most important decision you will ever make in your life!
Don’t let this opportunity to be saved pass you by.

All studies and devotionals on this site are based on the King James Bible.

Fervency is the fire on the altar of your heart that burns the incense of prayer and sends the sweet-smelling savour up to God.

Note on website when originally created:

I am a member of a good, solid, New Testament, Bible believing church in Kelowna, B.C. where I attend regularly. It is called People’s Baptist Church. It is an Independent, Fundamental Baptist church that preaches and teaches from the King James Bible and doesn’t explain it away. Here there are Christians that actually want to live for the Lord Jesus Christ and not just pay lip service to Him and His Word. I have been learning so much lately from God’s Word and from solid Bible studies that I am amazed. No more pablum from the NASV, when I can digest this solid food from the King James Bible! It is such a relief to know that what I am reading is the truth, and nothing but the truth! I don’t have to depend on my own personal whim (or the marginal notes of a lukewarm version, or the myriad opinions of clergy and scholars) to determine what God really said (and is still saying today to those who will heed His voice and not harden their hearts).

Personal Disclaimer:

I know that a lot of what I have to say will not be popular, but everything I do say is based on all my personal study of God’s Holy Word and holding everything up to the light of that Word. I do not explain away passages or try to twist God’s Word to fit my personal biases – I don’t believe that God’s Word is malleable – in the sense that we can take any Bible passage 1000 different ways. God meant what He said and He said what He meant. God said it and that settles it! Someone could choose to teach lies, but that’s from (a) twisting the Word to their own destruction, or (b) using a corrupted version because they can’t handle the pure Words of the Lord.

I am sharing what the Scriptures say and my personal convictions and thoughts on certain subjects. I am sharing what I believe in these studies and articles, but I make no claims to being inerrant – only God is, and His Word (in English, God’s inerrant Word is the King James Bible). If you, the reader, come across anything on my website that you believe is inaccurate or wrong based on your studies of the KJB, then please share your conclusions with me. You will find that I am teachable and I will change my mind on areas where I am proved wrong. BUT I will only change my mind on any given doctrine/subject if your conclusion takes into account all the Scripture dealing with that issue. Not one or two verses ripped out of context. If you find that any of my conclusions are overlooking other verses or passages that contradict my conclusions, let me know. My email address is below.

I make no apologies for what is on my website. The truth is a stumbling block to the unbeliever or carnal Christian. Jesus Himself is a stone of stumbling and a rock of offence to those who reject Him. (1 Peter 2:8) I will not be guilty of being a man-pleaser and removing the offence of the cross. I will do my best not to be personally offensive, but if the truth of God’s Holy Word offends, then let it be so! Maybe whomever it offends will realize that all their lives they were held captive to the devil and will come to a knowledge of the truth and be saved. If your lifestyle and beliefs are never put under subjection to the Word of God and the conviction of the Holy Spirit, how then can you repent of your sins and trust Jesus Christ, the Son of God and our only Saviour, for the salvation you so desperately need if you ever hope to attain to eternal life. Eternal life is knowing God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour. (See John 17:3 and 1 John 5:20) It is a relationship, not a religion.

For those who have read my essay on Bible Versions and may desire a list of references (bibliography and source for quotes), unfortunately I don’t have one prepared that lists all my primary sources. I didn’t keep track of all my sources when I wrote the essay because originally it was just a letter I was writing to a friend of mine. The Lord impressed upon me the desire to share my research and personal study in this area with others. I can email anyone that is interested a list of some of the books I have found the most useful in researching this issue. (My study, Bible Versions: Does It Matter?, was probably the earliest study I wrote as a believer and put online – not counting outlines, etc. for Bible study groups. At this point in time, I will not be rewriting it, but you can use it as a springboard for further study.)

Much valuable information on various aspects of the Bible Versions issue can be gathered from David Cloud’s website: Way Of Life Literature. All the information on my essay has been confirmed and modified based on information David Cloud has located on his site or has directly linked to. He thoroughly covers everything from preservation, to the history of the various texts, to translators, as well as in-depth looks at some of the changes in the newer versions. David Cloud’s site also links to many sound sites that can give you further information on this issue.

NOTE: David Cloud was not one of my primary sources for putting my essay together, but I have since found all the same sound information that I came across covered in his many well-researched articles. I highly recommend his website as a starting place for research on this subject.
