Poor, naked, penniless, worthless? (Octavius Winslow, “Morning Thoughts”) “Verily, verily, I say unto you, a time is coming and now is when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God and those that hear will live.”        John 5:25 There is the special, direct, and effectual call ofthe Spirit, in the elect of God, without which allother calling is in vain.  The Spirit effectuallyworks in […]

All, all is ours! (Winslow, “Daily Need Divinely Supplied” 1870) “The Lord is my portion, says my soul; therefore I will hope in Him.” Lament. 3:24 It is our great privilege, beloved, that we live in a ‘portionless’ world.

Judas and Simon Peter What was the difference between the sin of Judas and the sin of Simon Peter? What they did to our Lord seemed similar yet Simon was forgiven and converted, while Judas hanged himself and was damned. Every believer has worried at some point that they could turn out to be a […]

Purpose of Despisers, Purpose of God

Purpose of Despisers, Purpose of God Acts 13: 38-41 The whole purpose of Satan and the message preached in the synagogues of Satan are to keep men in ignorance to the liberty that is in Christ Jesus.  It is not those who are being bewitched that I reject but those who have heard the gospel […]
