“Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.” (Psalm 139:16) This is an amazing verse, testifying as it does to the omniscient fore-planning of our Creator for each human being. Each [...]
The Bible teaches clearly the purity, or impeccability, of Jesus Christ. Verses like this, “For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens” [Hebrews 7:26] make it clear. Jesus Himself said, “The prince of this world (the devil) cometh, and hath nothing [...]
“And they called them, and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus.” (Acts 4:18) Every Christian knows that he or she should witness for Christ, but most are very reluctant to speak in His name very often. The most obvious reason for this hesitancy is fear. Sometimes [...]
“Parteth the hoof……and cheweth the cud” [Leviticus 11:3] What are the distinguishing marks of a Christian? Sikhs and religious Jews are recognized by their dress. Moslems, by their uses of “Peace be upon him” when speaking of Mohammed. But how does one recognize a Christian? This verse gives us a hint. The Lord put a [...]
"Nevertheless God, that comforteth those that are cast down…" 2 Corinthians 7:6 And who comforts like Him? Go to some poor, melancholy, distressed child of God; tell him sweet promises, and whisper in his ear choice words of comfort; he is like the deaf adder, he listens not to the voice of the charmer, [...]

“What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded.” Romans 11:7 One of the saddest aspects of our world is the blindness of Israel. Even the Orthodox Jews, who strongly affirm their belief in the Old Testament Scriptures, seem unable to [...]
The children of Israel, not long after leaving Egypt in the exodus, began to grumble and complain. Their beef? Lack of food. The Lord miraculously provided quails to eat. Then followed the amazing miracle of “Manna” [Exodus 16]. Not too many people realize how great a miracle that was. We have a fair idea [...]
"In the shadow of his hand hath he hid me, and made me a polished shaft: in his quiver hath he hid me;" Isaiah 49:2 “In the shadow.” We must all go there sometimes. The glare of the daylight is too brilliant; our eyes become injured and unable to discern the delicate shades of [...]
We have just spent a blessed three days in special prayer for our Church, School and Country. There is a wonderful encouragement to prayer in Exodus 17. The children of Israel were just a few weeks out of Egypt when they faced their first war situation with the Amalekites. Moses put the army under [...]
"...we were troubled on every side;" 2 Corinthians 7:5 Why should God have to lead us thus, and allow the pressure to be so hard and constant? Well, in the first place, it shows His all-sufficient strength and grace much better than if we were exempt from pressure and trial. “The treasure is in [...]
