About Dr. Ian Traill

Dr. Ian Traill retired missionary to China where he has been for more than 18 years. Previously he had planted a Church in Daylesford, Victoria, Australia and now he is involved in planting Churches in China and developing Traillblazer, Tony Smits Bible College throughout the nation. Arriving in August 2000 to take up a position teaching English at Universities and Colleges, working as a "tentmakers" ministry, he has been conducting Bible classes and training people in the area of leadership with the view of them starting their own home church. Ian has a strong desire to bring teaching to the people, thus he has written many books. A missionary is one who is sent to cross over geographic and cross-cultural boundaries to plant the Word of God and a local church, thus establishing God’s culture in a new location. The Gospel of John clearly portrays Jesus as fulfilling the ministry of a missionary sent from God (John 3:17-34, 4:34, 5:23, 5:36-38, 6:29-57, 7:16-33, 8:16-42, 9:4, 10:36, 11:42, 12:44-49, and13:20). Jesus Christ came as a missionary to this world to save us, but non-Christians reading His story in a newspaper at that time, would say that He was a failure. We, of course, are aware He did not fail. It is because of His mission that we are here today, and it was through someone else that we heard about Jesus too. Faith comes by hearing the Word, but if there is no preacher how can people hear? So we are going to all nations.

Greetings from TTSBS South Africa

Dear Doc Traill

Please find attached photos from our 2019 class. God is so faithful that even though it’s hard for some students to understand English clearly but they have worked tirelessly to finish their studies. The school is expanding because this year we have 10 students from Eastrand who are starting their first year of school studying with TTSBS.

In South Africa we have now 2 branches which is Soweto and Thokoza.
We have 3 students in Botswana year one year 2 and year 3. Amazing what God is doing. We have a Pastor who is leading a church in Northwest about 400km away from Soweto who has graduated his first year with us and we looking forward to see a branch there and a branch in Botswana could open as we see the interest of the students. This is the reason we are looking for registration of the School in South Africa so we can serve Africa from there.
People are impressed by the standards of the material used in this school. There are many who want to study but funding is a problem. Class 2019 has funded 3 students who could not manage to pay for material as we only require to print them out notes to read and study notes to answer questions.
We were joined with a number of pastors who seem to be interested to the school and when they promised not to change our way of working with the heard office could be allowed to train their members using the material.
We praise the Lord for the material allowed to be used. We are trusting God to provide us with the best energy to reach more African nations with the material

Christian are sucked in!

If you have supported a person who is a footballer, rock star, politician and or an identity who say they are Christians. You better be careful who you support.

Of late I have seen a so-called Christian footballer with new tattoos.  Maybe he used the money you gave him to fight his legal battle while you forgot to support missions.

A pop star who says he is a Christian with more new tattoos and provocative photos of him and new girlfriend.

Even a cricket star with an eagle on his back which he relates to Scripture about waiting on the Lord for his strength.

From Scripture none of these people will enter heaven.

I can afford to be wrong with our teaching about not getting Tattoos as it will not take anyone to hell. But those who say getting tattoos and body piercing is OK when some Scripture says it not OK; they have to be 100% correct or they will have to answer God for leading some to hell.

Jeremiah 8:12 Were they ashamed when they had done an abomination? No, they were not at all ashamed, nor could they blush; therefore, they shall fall among those who fall; in the time of their visitation they shall be cast down, says Jehovah. (MKJV)

A spirit of rebellion is in the Church.

Grace is part of God’s virtue and has always been available to humanity as can be seen when God killed the animal in the garden to cover Adams sin and when Jesus died on the cross. Grace is available to all but there are requirements. An RSVP is required when a person is made aware of their sins and the forgiveness of God is presented.

If you or I are aware of sin in ourselves or in the camp of the saints and we do nothing about it claiming that grace will cover it, you are mistaken, because if we do that then we have become little gods, and we share in the sin.

If we are observant, we will notice people in our churches who say they are Christians doing things which are not God’s will. Many have asked me about the manifest presence of God to come into their churches, so they can be in revival. I am sure they don’t know what revival is like. They asked me about gold dust and diamonds on the seats, smoking, drinking, homosexuality, body piercing and tattoos. They ask because they really want to see God, but they show themselves smoking, drinking, with body piercing and tattoos on Facebook and think they are representing God. Well they are not! They are representing the lusts of the flesh.

The world is lost and looking for a light. Jesus is the light, but we are meant to be little lights, we are the Bible people read.

If we are not offering Holiness how can attract people into the Kingdom of God?

Becoming one with the God

We are the highest of God’s creation then “IF” we call on His Son’s name asking for forgiveness, then God transforms us miraculously.


We recieve a new spirit, a new heart, the mind of Christ, the Word of God inscribed on our new heart and the Holy Spirit, which in themselves are six tremendous set of changes to bring about our regeneration, we still get more. We are sons transposed into the Kingdom of God justified instantaneously by Jesus’ faith and our faith in Jesus.

We have Christ in us and He is in God and God is in Him, which means we have God in us because we have Christ in us, then we are in God with His Spirit. We have become one with the God of all creation in an intimate synergistic relationship.

1John 2:24 Therefore what you heard from the beginning, let it abide in you. If what you heard from the beginning remains in you, you will abide in both the Son and in the Father. 25 And this is the promise that He has promised us: everlasting life. (MKJV)

John 14:10 Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father in Me? The Words that I speak to you I do not speak of Myself, but the Father who dwells in Me, He does the works. 11 Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the very works themselves. (MKJV)

John 15:4 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it remains in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. 5 I am the Vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, the same brings forth much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. 6 If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered. And they gather and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. 7 If you abide in Me, and My Words abide in you, you shall ask what you will, and it shall be done to you. (MKJV)

Two loves of God

God shows no impartiality in the magnitude of His unconditional agape love. He agape loves us all 100 per cent and you cannot get any more. Agape[1] love is a dear love based on a decision of the mind. God must agape us. Agape love is God’s obligated demonstration of love to all mankind (Sinners).

John 15:13 No one has greater love (agape) than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. (MKJV)

Matthew 5:44 But I say to you, Love (agape) your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who despitefully use you and persecute you, (MKJV)

Phileo love is for believers, in the Greek is to approve, like, sanction; to treat affectionately or kindly, to welcome, befriend and show signs of love (only for believers). God is pure. If we believe in Jesus, God loves (phileo) Jesus (1 John 5:2) and us completely (John 16:27) and we are treated affectionately, romantically approved.

John 16:27 for the Father Himself loves[1] you, because you have loved Me and have believed that I came out from God. (MKJV)

In John 16:27 the Father’s love is “phileo” in Greek, which is a love with strong emotions, to treat affectionately. God phileo loves us tenderly, because we are committed disciples who love His Son (John 5:20; 11:3; 11:36; 12:25; 15:19; 20:2; 21:15-17). He calls us sons and friends with whom He shares warm and friendly love (Galatians 3:26, 2Corinthians 6:18, John 15:15). God saves us and if we respond to the call He is happy. God may well be pleased with other actions we do out of this love, but His phileo love is complete.

1Corinthians 16:22 If anyone does not love (phileo) the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be accursed. The Lord comes! 23 May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you. 24 Let my love (agape) be with you all in Christ Jesus. Amen. (MKJV)

Revelation 3:19 As many as I love “phileo”, I rebuke and chasten; therefore be zealous and repent. (MKJV)

[1] Strong’s, Hebrews and Greek Dictionaries G5368 phileō, From G5384; to be a friend to (fond of [an individual or an object]), that is, have affection for (denoting personal attachment, as a matter of sentiment or feeling;

[1] Strong’s, Hebrew and Greek Dictionaries G26 agapē ag-ah’-pay From G25; love, that is, affection or benevolence; specifically (plural) a love feast: – (feast of) charity ([-ably]), dear, love.
