God’s People Are a Broken People

Posted by admin on July 12, 2017 at 7:23 am

God’s People Are a Broken People “The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit” (Psalm 34:18). A broken heart, a contrite spirit and a subdued will are rare things. In this day of human rights, everyone extols the imaginary dignity of man, [...]

THE ABIDING COMFORTER “Remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how He said,” “And I will ask the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, that He may abide with you forever.” — John 14:16 When one beloved earthly friend is taken away — how the heart is drawn out towards those that remain! Jesus [...]

What Does God Require? Henry Mahan If a person has concern and doubts about his hope of grace and eternal glory, he might consider the following questions. 1. God requires perfection. Am I perfect? No! Then do I have ONE who is perfect to stand for me, and I in Him? 2. Do I have [...]

The Fear of God

Posted by admin on January 16, 2017 at 10:44 pm

The Fear of God Without the fear of God a sinner cannot worship God. The fear of God is so important in worship, that throughout the Old Testament instead of saying “the worship of God” the scriptures call worship, itself, “the fear of God” and those who worship “those that feared God.” (Ps 5:7) Fearing [...]

WHERE IS THE FEAR OF GOD TODAY?

Posted by admin on January 16, 2017 at 10:43 pm

WHERE IS THE FEAR OF GOD TODAY? Where is the fear of God today? Is this not what is wrong with us? Is not this the whole story? This present generation is so taken up with the idea of our own importance and so occupied with the dignity of man, that we no longer fear [...]

We are not justified by the law

Posted by admin on September 25, 2016 at 6:25 am

The Scripture distinctly teaches us that we are not justified by the law nor is the law a rule of life. That which can only curse can never justify and that which can only kill can never be a rule of life (Romans 3:20). Both the Jews who had received the law and the Gentiles [...]

The Governing of Christ Deuteronomy 34: 8, 9 The children of Israel hearkened unto Moses, and did as the LORD commanded Moses. When the LORD revealed through Moses that Joshua was the only one who would deliver them into the land of promise then the children obeyed the LORD, obeyed the whole word of God, by [...]

The least religion of their own

The least religion of their own They are the wisest—in whom creature wisdom has most ceased. They are the strongest—who have learned most experimentally their own weakness. They are the holiest—who have known most of their own filthiness. They are the most spiritual in a true sense—who have the least religion of their own. J.C.Philpot

THE ATTITUDE OF THE SAINTS

Posted by admin on May 7, 2016 at 8:07 am

When the children of God see, hear, and are confronted with the “damnable heresies” of false prophets (2 Peter 2), they should have thoughts of pity and compassion, both for the deceivers and the deceived. And when these pitiful, perishing religionists will not receive us, nor our doctrine, nor our sovereign and gracious Lord, it [...]

HOLY ZEAL

Posted by admin on February 11, 2016 at 6:07 am

HOLY ZEAL “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus.” “Zeal for Your house will consume Me.”—John 2:17 “Zeal is a principle; enthusiasm is a feeling. The one is the spark of a sanguine temperament and overheated imagination. The other a sacred flame kindled at God’s altar and burning in God’s [...]
