Morning and Evening by Charlse Spurgeon – 27th February

Morning ======= "Thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation." / Psalm 91:9 The Israelites in the wilderness were continually exposed to change. Whenever the pillar stayed its motion, the tents were pitched; but tomorrow, ere the morning sun had risen, the trumpet sounded, the ark was in motion, and the fiery, cloudy pillar was leading the way through the narrow defiles of the mountain, up the hill Continue Reading

The Wars of the LORD

Joshua 10:40 So Joshua smote all the land, the hill country, the South, the lowland, and the slopes, and all their kings; he left none remaining, but utterly destroyed all that breathed, as the Lord the God of Israel commanded. [Deuteronomy 20:16]. Amplified Bible. As the presence of “the Prince of the Lord’s host” [Joshua 5:13-14] indicates, Jehovah will take part in this conflict, not as an ally or an adversary, but as Continue Reading

Christ our life—soon to appear

‘When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.’ Colossians 3:4 Suggested Further Reading: 1 John 2:28–3:3 Christ will appear. The text speaks of it as a fact to be taken for granted. ‘When Christ, who is our life, shall appear.’ It is not a matter of question in the Christian church whether Christ will appear or not. Has not Christ appeared once? Yes, after a certain sort. I remember reading a Continue Reading

A blast of the trumpet against false peace

“Peace, peace, when there is no peace.” Jeremiah 6:14 Suggested Further Reading: 1 Corinthians 1:18-25 Many of the people of London enjoy peace in their hearts, because they are ignorant of the things of God. It would positively alarm many of our sober orthodox Christians, if they could once have an idea of the utter ignorance of spiritual things that reigns throughout this land. Some of us, when moving about here and there, in all Continue Reading

Morning and Evening by Charles Spurgeon – 26th February

Morning ======= "Salvation is of the Lord." / Jonah 2:9 Salvation is the work of God. It is he alone who quickens the soul "dead in trespasses and sins," and it is he also who maintains the soul in its spiritual life. He is both "Alpha and Omega." "Salvation is of the Lord." If I am prayerful, God makes me prayerful; if I have graces, they are God's gifts to me; if I hold on in a consistent life, it is because he upholds me with Continue Reading

Strange and Unholy Fire

Leviticus 10:3 And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, each took his censer and put fire in it, and put incense on it, and offered strange and unholy fire before the Lord, as He had not commanded them. And there came forth fire from before the Lord and killed them, and they died before the Lord. Then Moses said to Aaron, This is what the Lord meant when He said, I [and My will, not their own] will be acknowledged as hollowed by those who come Continue Reading

Within the Veil

 Leviticus 16:1-2 After the death of Aaron’s two sons, when they drew near before the Lord [offered false fire] and died, [Lev. 10:1-2] The Lord said to Moses, Tell Aaron your brother he must not come at all times into the holy of holies within the veil, before the mercy seat upon the ark, lest he die; for I will appear in the cloud on the mercy seat. [Heb. 9:7-15, 25-28] The priests being warned by the death of Nadab and Abihu to approach Continue Reading

GOD–all in all

‘When he giveth quietness, who then can make trouble? and when he hideth his face, who then can behold him? whether it be done against a nation, or against a man only.’ Job 34:29 Suggested Further Reading: 2 Corinthians 10:1–5 If some of us were fallen asleep, and the faithful ones buried—if the Spirit of God were gone, you would say, ‘Well, we are still a large and influential congregation; we can afford to get a talented minister, Continue Reading

The glorious right hand of the Lord

“And the Lord said unto Moses, Is the Lord’s hand waxed short? thou shalt see now whether my word shall come to pass unto thee or not.” Numbers 11:23 Suggested Further Reading: Luke 12:22-31 Which of his people have found the riches of his grace drained dry? Which of his children has had to mourn that the unsearchable riches of Christ had failed to supply his need? In grace, as well as in providence and nature, the unanimous verdict is Continue Reading

Morning and Evening by Charles Spurgeon – 24th February

Morning ======= "I will cause the shower to come down in his season; there shall be showers of blessing." / Ezekiel 34:26 Here is sovereign mercy--"I will give them the shower in its season." Is it not sovereign, divine mercy?--for who can say, "I will give them showers," except God? There is only one voice which can speak to the clouds, and bid them beget the rain. Who sendeth down the rain upon the earth? Who scattereth the showers Continue Reading
