It is the opening up of the deep mysteries of the everlasting covenant by the only Expounder… Read More

Preached in Grove Chapel, Camberwell, Sunday Morning, May 4th, 1879 – By Thomas Bradbury. —————————— “And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the Mount Zion, and with Him an hundred and forty and forty and four thousand, having His Father’s name written in their foreheads. And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder; and I heard the… Read More

Description: Edward Hendrie exposes the false doctrine preached by church pastors, including, but not limited to, John MacArthur, Charles Stanley, Sam Hoyt, and Erwin Lutzer. The false gospel they preach is that saved Christians will lose rewards in heaven at the judgment seat of Christ, because of sin they have committed. That is directly contrary to God’s promise that our “sins and iniquities will I remember no more.” – Hebrews 10:17. How… Read More

History is always written by the victor and the histories of the losing parties belong to the shrinking circle of those who were there – quoted by Joachim Peiper. This is a study about the unadulterated biblical creation. This study will be controversial to mainstream beliefs of what is being taught around the world by pseudo scientists and so-called conservative churches. Let us begin with Genesis 1 and delve into the scriptures…. Read More

God’s Creation! Or A cunningly devised Fable? ————————— All Scripture is quoted from the authorized King James Version —————————— As believers in Jesus Christ, we believe the Bible is the inerrant, infallible word of God. 2 Timothy 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: God has preserved His Word throughout time and history for all generations (Psalm… Read More

“Now our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace. Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.” (2nd Thessalonians 2:16-17) —————————— A BLESSED privilege it is to be lifted up by the power of Divine grace, even to a little hope, and to be blessed with the manifestation of His goodness… Read More

“If the LORD delight in us, then He will bring us into this land, and give it us; a land which floweth with milk and honey.” (Numbers 14:8) ————————— INTERESTING and instructive are the circumstances recorded in connection with the portion which I have read for our meditation; but instructive only to those whom the best of all teachers has graciously taken in hand. On such His lessons of grace are never… Read More

“I am the Resurrection and the Life.” (John 11:25) —————————— IN a variety of titles our blessed Lord and Saviour is pleased to reveal Himself in the written Word, and by the grace of His own Spirit, to the hearts of those who are eternally loved by Him, everlastingly saved by Him, perfectly washed by Him from all sin, and completely clothed by Him in the garments of salvation, and in the… Read More

“He shall save His people from their sins.” (Matthew 1:21) —————————— “THE Book of the generation of Jesus Christ.” Such is the opening of the canon of New Testament Scripture, and the commencement of the Gospel by the evangelist Matthew. The Holy Ghost thus begins the genealogy of Christ from Abraham to Joseph, and then traces it out in such a manner as to cause infidelity to stumble, and poor weak faith… Read More

“God hath not cast away His people which He foreknew.” (Romans 11:2) —————————— There are certain doctrines peculiar to the spiritual education of all God’s eternally loved, elect, redeemed, and regenerate people. These doctrines are questioned all the world over, and frequently exercise and perplex the minds of those whom God is bringing in His own way which He has prepared for them, and which is now possessed and secured by Christ… Read More

“There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.” (Ephesians 4:4-6) —————————— A PRECIOUS declaration of the perfect oneness of the Church with JEHOVAH is given here, in the midst of spiritual commands and covenant unfoldings. The apostle commences the… Read More

And I said, Thou shalt call Me, My Father, and shalt not turn away from Me.” (Jeremiah 3:19) —————————— Very precious are the Gospel or Evangelical promises which the Holy Ghost has bequeathed to the Church and people of God in this chapter of Jeremiah’s prophecy a… Read More

“If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with Him in glory.” (Colossians 3:1-4) —————————— The design of the Holy… Read More

“But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him. But God hath revealed them unto us by His Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.” (1st Corinthians 2:9-10) —————————— Last Friday evening, at our weekly prayer meeting, it was my lot to dwell upon… Read More

“Righteousness shall go before Him; and shall set us in the way of His steps.” (Psalm 85:13) —————————— The Psalm commences with a very precious declaration of the Bride’s confidence in the God of all grace, and of the good things He has done for His people. This is not peculiar to the Psalmist, or to any portion of the children of God. Those who fear His name, those who hope in… Read More

There were 3 ½ years of silence in Israel. God did not speak during the time of drought in Israel. Perhaps you remember that for 3 ½ years it did not rain in Israel, or in any of the neighboring lands. · God had spoken through the Prophet Elijah 3½ years ago; now he was silent for 3½ years. · Now the scourge of God was felt on that guilty nation for… Read More

Elijah commanded King Ahab to gather all Israel to Mount Carmel. And King Ahab obeyed Elijah. That in itself is a miracle! But now, Elijah is addressing the people of Israel. And what does he tell them? 1st Kings 18:20 So Ahab sent unto all the children of Israel, and gathered the prophets together unto mount Carmel. 1st Kings 18:21 And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt… Read More

· The preparations toward this climax – A Study of 1st Kings 18:30-40 Ahab, the king of Israel, and the 450 prophets of Baal, and the 400 prophets of Asherah, and many of the people of the nation of Israel have come to the top of Mount Carmel to meet Elijah there. Elijah was the Prophet of God who had declared, 3 ½ years earlier, that there would be neither dew nor… Read More

In our previous study we saw in 1st Kings and the 18th chapter, the great confrontation between Elijah and the 450 prophets of Baal. You remember what came to pass. Who lost this confrontation? And who won? 1st Kings 18:38 Then the fire of the LORD fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench. 1st… Read More
