The LORD chose you because He loved you

Deuteronomy 7:6-11 For thou art a holy people unto the Lord: the Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are on the face of the earth. The Lord did not se6t His love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people: But because the Lord love you, and because he would keep the oath which he had sworn unto your fathers, hath the Lord Continue Reading

Christus: A Mystery ~ H.W. Longfellow

Introitus The ANGEL bearing the PROPHET HABAKKUK through the air. PROPHET: Why dost thou bear me aloft, O Angel of God, on thy pinions O’er realms and dominions? Softly I float as a cloud In air, for thy right hand upholds me, Thy garment enfolds me! ANGEL: Lo! As I passed on my way In the harvest-field I beheld thee, When no man compelled thee, Bearing with thine own hands This food to the famishing reapers, A flock without Continue Reading

Forsaking All

by A.W. Tozer Our Lord referred to this tyranny of things when He said to His disciples, "If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever shall lose his life for my sake shall find it." Breaking this truth into fragments for our better understanding, it would seem that there is within each of us an enemy which we tolerate at our Continue Reading

Incredible Christian

by A.W. Tozer The cross stands in bold opposition to the natural man. Its philosophy runs contrary to the processes of the unregenerate mind, so that Paul could say bluntly that the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness. To try to find a common ground between the message of the cross and man's fallen reason is to try the impossible, and if persisted in must result in an impaired reason, a meaningless cross and a Continue Reading

HOLY GROUND – The Only Way To Become Holy

by David Wilkerson God can´t use a man until He gets him on holy ground. A holy God must have a holy man on holy ground. Holy ground is not a physical place, but a spiritual one. When God commanded Moses to take off his shoes because he was on holy ground, He was not referring to a two-by-four piece of real estate. He was talking about a spiritual state. God called Moses from the burning bush, commanding him: "Put off thy shoes Continue Reading

The Tower of Babel. B.C. 2247

Genesis 11: 5-9 5 And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. 6 And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. 7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech. 8 So the LORD scattered them abroad from Continue Reading

Their House shall stand, their families shall be kept up

Proverbs 12:7 7 The wicked are overthrown, and are not: but the house of the righteous shall stand. We are here taught as before (v. 3 and chap. 10:25, 30), 1. That the triumphing of the wicked is short. They may be exalted for a while, but in a little time they are overthrown and are not; their trouble proves their overthrow, and those who made a great show disappear, and their place knows them no more. Turn the wicked, and they are not; Continue Reading

Wicked Conversation Reproved; Evil Maxims of Sinners; Pious Converse Commended; Promises to the Godly. B. C. 400.

Malachi 3:13-18 13 Your words have been stout against me, saith the LORD. Yet ye say, What have we spoken so much against thee? 14 Ye have said, It is vain to serve God: and what profit is it that we have kept his ordinance, and that we have walked mournfully before the LORD of hosts? 15 And now we call the proud happy; yea, they that work wickedness are set up; yea, they that tempt God are even delivered. 16 Then they that feared the LORD Continue Reading

Man’s ruin and God’s remedy

“And the Lord said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live.” Numbers 21:8 Suggested Further Reading: Luke 23:1-5 Christ’s redemption was so plenteous, that had God willed it, if all the stars of heaven had been peopled with sinners, Christ need not have suffered another pang to redeem them all—there was a boundless value in Continue Reading

GOD does not afflict His children

Job 19:21 Have pity upon me, have pity upon me, O ye my friends; for the hand of God hath touched me. [Dake A.R.B.] God’s Hand has never touched a child of his, and never will, to afflict and torment him as Satan did Job. The hand of God heals and delivers only. One proof of this is what the Bible says about the future. When He comes to reign and have His will done on earth as it is in Heaven, there will be no more sickness, pain, death, Continue Reading
