Famed Evangelist Byron Spears Has Died

Famed Evangelist Byron Spears Has Died

We're sad to announce that Pastor Byron Spears Sr., the legendary evangelist known as the “Walking Bible,” passed away January 29, 2013. He was 100 years old.

Life for Byron began July 3, 1912, in Topeka, Kansas. At the young age of 24,
he was stricken with polio and meningitis. For many years, he walked with two canes, but he always held his head high and kept his faith in the Heavenly Father.

Says Pastor Doug Batchelor, "Pastor Spears is perhaps the last of the great old guard church evangelists. What made him stand out especially was his ability to quote sometimes as many as 100 Bible passages in a single sermon—all from memory. It was incredible to hear and behold. He was a great supporter of Amazing Facts. I was honored to be asked to participate in his memorial in Los Angeles, and I believe he’ll have many stars in his crown in heaven."

Amazing Facts features Pastor Spears’ The Trumpet of Truth series at our media library—just click the link below to listen.

Amazing Facts Presents
There are several times in history when God has given dreams so we can know where we are in the biblical continuum of history. Nebuchadnezzar’s dream of the image outlines the history of the main world empires that impact God's people from the time of Daniel to the end of this world. God gives these prophecies so we will know He is not surprised by world events. He has a plan for your life.
Book Library (French)
L'un des sujets qui a suscité le plus de confusion sur le plan théologique est celui de l'enfer. Le clergé le traite avec maladresse et les laïcs le déforment au point où le mot n'est plus qu'un vulgaire juron. Partout, les gens se posent les mêmes questions: Qu'est-ce que l'enfer et où est-il? Quel sort est réservé aux méchants? Est-ce qu'un Dieu d'amour torture des personne durant toute l'éternité?
Storacles (Zomi)
Abraham in Pasian hopihna atelzak mahmah laitakin khuavak nailo hi. “Abraham aw, na it mahmah khat bek na neih na tapa Moriah mualte lakah kong lahna munah hong paipih inla kithohna, biakpiakna-in hong pia in.” Piancil 22:1,2.
