REVERENCE FOR GOD’S WORD Octavius Winslow “And Micaiah said, As the Lord lives, even what my God says, that will I speak.” –2 Chron. 18:13 Micaiah was a God-fearing prophet.

Consider Jesus– Our Paymaster “He was oppressed.” –Isa. 53:7 The Hebrew word here rendered “oppressed,” signifies to exact, or, to demand payment.

“For in that he himself has suffered being tempted, he is able to support those who are tempted.” Hebrews 2:18 DO YOU THINK, my reader, was it no humiliation for the Son of God to be thus assailed by the prince of darkness?

THE BELIEVER’S SUFFICIENCY OF GOD “Then I said, Ah, Lord God! behold, I cannot speak–for I am a child. But the Lord said unto me, Say not, I am a child–for you shall go to all that I shall send you, and whatever I command you, you shall speak. Be not afraid of their faces–for [...]

JEHOVAH’S JEWELS “They shall be Mine, says the Lord, in that day when I make up my jewels.”–Mal. 3:17 That which the merchant regards as most costly, and the bride as most ornamental, Jehovah condescends to employ to illustrate the character and relation of His saints–“My Jewels.” My soul, if, through sovereign grace, you have [...]

WHAT IS THE NEW BIRTH? In conversion the soul is ushered into a new, spiritual world—emphatically born again. The first birth introduces us into the natural world; the second introduces us into a spiritual world. The first birth ushers us into a world of sin, and woe, and death; the second birth, into a world [...]

An experimental Christian? (Winslow, “This God is Our God”) The religion of the true believer is experimental; it is the religion of the heart. He has no dealings with an unknown, imaginary God. He does not know God from the hearing of the ear, or from the reading of books, or from the religious conversation of [...]
