The sons of God

“The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God; And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may also be glorified together.” Romans 8:16,17 Suggested Further Reading: Ephesians 1:11-23 The believer is to be the heir, I say, not merely of God’s works, not simply of God’s gifts, but of God himself. Do we not talk of his omnipotence?—his Continue Reading

A present religion

“Beloved, now are we the sons of God.” 1 John 3:2 Suggested Further Reading: Hebrews 13:1-8 We need not talk of walking righteously, and soberly, in the world to come— “There all is pure, and all is clear, There all is joy and love.” There will be no duty to discharge between the tradesmen and the customers, between the debtor and the creditor, between the father and the child, between the husband and the wife, in heaven, for all Continue Reading

For Job said, It may be that my sons have sinned and cursed or disowned God in their hearts; Now there was a day when the sons [the angels] of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan [the adversary and accuser] also came among them

Job 1 1THERE WAS a man in the land of Uz whose name was Job; and that man was blameless and upright, and one who [reverently] feared God and abstained from and shunned evil [because it was wrong]. 2And there were born to him seven sons and three daughters. 3He possessed 7,000 sheep, 3,000 camels, 500 yoke of oxen, 500 female donkeys, and a very great body of servants, so that this man was the greatest of all the men of the Continue Reading

The Morning Stars

The Morning Stars Job 38:7 When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy? The morning stars are the infinite suns out in space which are suns to other planets like our sun is to our earth and its related planets. This passage proves that the whole of the heavens was created before the earth itself or these stars could not have been singing when God laid the foundations of the earth [v 6-7]. That the Continue Reading

Keep in touch with God

Genesis 24:27 I being in the way, the Lord led me. Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. “In the way” – God’s purpose and plan for your life and mine. How important it is that we make it our business to be “in the way” so that the great purposes of God for our lives might be fulfilled. It is only as His Holy Spirit is followed that we will be prompted to little acts of usefulness and blessing; Continue Reading

John 1:6-14; The Testimony of John the Baptist; Christ’s Incarnation; The Evangelist designs to bring in John Baptist bearing an honourable testimony to Jesus Christ.

The Testimony of John Baptist; Christ's Incarnation. John 1:6-14 6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.   7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.   8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.   9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.   10 He was in the world, and the world was made by Continue Reading

Job 2:1-6; Satan Again Permitted to Afflict Job; Satan moves for another trial, which should touch his bone and his flesh, God, for holy ends, permits it; Satan smites him with a very painful and loathsome disease. B.C. 1520

J O B CHAPTER 2 We left Job honourably acquitted upon a fair trial between God and Satan concerning him. Satan had leave to touch, to touch and take, all he had, and was confident that he would then curse God to his face; but, on the contrary, he blessed him, and so he was proved an honest man and Satan a false accuser. Now, one would have thought, this would be conclusive, and that Job would never have his reputation called in question Continue Reading

Job 1:6-12; Satan before God; Satan Permitted to Afflict Job; Satan thrust himself among the Sons of God; God’s hedge about Job. B.C. 1520

Satan before God; Satan Permitted to Afflict Job. B. C. 1520. Job 1:6-12 6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them.   7 And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.   8 And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my Continue Reading

Sons of God: Giants after the Flood

Sons of God: Genesis 6:2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. Seth did not have a son until 235 years after creation; and his son did not have a son until 325 years after creation [Genesis 5:3, 6, 9]. Where did these sons come from? They could not have been sons of Seth, for these marriages took place when men began to multiply – in the very beginning of the Continue Reading

First Mention Of Satan

Job 1:6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came also among them. There was a day when angels in heaven came to present themselves before Jehovah. This happened twice [1:6; 2:1], implying that there are regular days in which angels do this. Worship on the planet heaven as well as on other planets where there is life, is no doubt carried on regularly, as here on earth. Other Continue Reading
