God came first – Isaac

Genesis 26:25 And Isaac built an altar there, and called on the Name of the Lord, and pitched his tent there; and there Isaac’s servants were digging a well. With Isaac God came first. Before doing anything else in the new place, he built an altar, then waited there to call upon the Lord. Second, came his home; he pitched his tent. Third, came his business; his servants dug a well. Amplified Bible : Page 33. Continue Reading

God’s choice vs. the voice of the people

2 Chronicles 6:5-6 Since the day I brought My people out of the land of Egypt I chose no city among all the tribes of Israel to build a house in, that My Name might be there; neither chose I any man to be ruler over My people Israel; But I have chosen Jerusalem, that My Name [and the symbol of My Presence] might be there, and have chosen David to be over My people Israel. God is plainly saying here it was not His desire for Israel to have a Continue Reading

Resurrection—Christ the firstfruits

‘But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.’ 1 Corinthians 15:20 Suggested Further Reading: Romans 6:5–11 Why is it that the resurrection of Christ is of so much importance? Upon it we have said that the whole system of Christianity rests; for ‘if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain… ye are yet in your sins’ (1 Corinthians 15:14,17). The divinity of Continue Reading

Final perseverance

“For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.” Hebrews 6:4-6 Suggested Further Reading: Hebrews 10:26-39 God preserves his Continue Reading

Morning and Evening by Charles Spurgeon – 20th April

Morning ======= "Behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom." / Matthew 27:51 No mean miracle was wrought in the rending of so strong and thick a veil; but it was not intended merely as a display of power--many lessons were herein taught us. The old law of ordinances was put away, and like a worn-out vesture, rent and laid aside. When Jesus died, the sacrifices were all finished, because all fulfilled in Continue Reading

Ruth’s confession

Ruth 1:14,16,17 Then they wept aloud again; and Orpah kissed her mother-in-law [good-bye], but Ruth clung to her. And Ruth said, urge me not to leave you, or to return from following you; for where you go, I will go; and where you lodge, I will lodge; your people shall be my people, and your God my God; Where you die, I will die, and there will I be buried. The Lord do so to me, and more also, if anything but death parts me from you. “How Continue Reading

God is found everywhere

Genesis 28:12, 13, 15, 17 And he dreamed that there was a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to Heaven; and the angels of God were ascending and descending on it! And behold, the Lord stood over and beside him….. And behold, I am with you, and will keep [watch over you with care, and take notice of] you wherever you may go, and I will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done all of which I have Continue Reading

Destiny of a Good Man

Isaiah 16:15 Precious [important and no light matter] in the sight of the Lord is the death of His Saints – His loving ones. But the souls of the virtuous are in the hands of God, No torment shall ever touch them. In the eyes of the unwise, they did appear to die, Their going looked like a disaster, Their leaving us, like annihilation; But they are in peace. If they experienced punishment as men see it, Their hope was rich with Continue Reading

Heedlessness in religion

‘But Jehu took no heed to walk in the law of the Lord God of Israel with all his heart: for he departed not from the sins of Jeroboam, which made Israel to sin.’ 2 Kings 10:31 Suggested Further Reading: Luke 6:37–42 Jehu was very angry at other people’s sins, and we may be without being delivered from our own. It is a very fine sight to see a man work himself up into a furore against drunkenness; he himself has never been guilty of it. Continue Reading

Morning and Evening by Charles Spurgeon – 15th April

Morning ======= "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" / Psalm 22:1 We here behold the Saviour in the depth of his sorrows. No other place so well shows the griefs of Christ as Calvary, and no other moment at Calvary is so full of agony as that in which his cry rends the air--"My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" At this moment physical weakness was united with acute mental torture from the shame and ignominy through which Continue Reading
