“I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth.” (1st John 2:21) The Holy Scriptures identify every true son and daughter of God by many different names and descriptions. They are identified as those who have been called with an holy calling by the Holy Ghost. They are identified as wheat, sheep, the seed of Abraham, and… Read More

Indefinite redemption is too weak to support the mind in the solemn hour of dissolution. Nothing short of a personal application of the atoning blood can destroy the fear of death. To die joyfully we must possess the assurance that Christ hath loved us and given Himself for us, but this assurance we cannot have if Christ died only for sin and not for particular persons. Our safety, indeed, does not depend… Read More

“And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day.” (Joshua 10:13) “And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called. And they call the blind man, saying unto him, Be of good comfort, rise; he calleth… Read More

He is rash and precipitate [i.e. reckless, hasty, impulsive], and he returns an… Read More

“And, behold, Boaz came from Bethlehem, and said unto the reapers, The LORD be with you. And they answered him, The LORD bless thee.“ (Ruth 2:4) Boaz came into his own field, he spoke to his own reapers, and wished them the best of all blessings, even the presence of the best Friend that man can have.  Here he dropped into their ears and into their hearts this gracious salutation: “The LORD be with you.”  But… Read More

2nd Peter 3:3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, 2nd Peter 3:4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.  2nd Peter 3:5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth… Read More
