“The hearing ear, and the seeing eye, the Lord hath made even both of them” Proverbs 20:12 The eye is most exquisitely and delicately constructed. This little organ has tens of millions of electrical connections and can handle one and a half million simultaneous messages.  The retina alone, covering less than a square inch, [...]

C.H. Spurgeon kept Isaiah 48:10 on his bedroom wall, “I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction.”  He wrote: It is no mean thing to be chosen by God.  Better to be the elect of God than the elect of a whole nation.  So eminent is this privilege, that whatever may be joined [...]

John’s cry, Behold the Lamb of God,” broke four hundred years of silence.  Though God had been silent, He had not been inactive; divine providence was setting the stage for the world’s most significant hour.  Kings rose and fell, and God used each for His purpose.  The Persians financed the new temple.  The Greeks [...]

“A merry heart doeth good like a medicine” Proverbs 17:22 A Christian lady was always so bright and cheerful that everyone wondered at her joyous spirit. “But sister,” said a friend, you must have some clouds in your life.”  “Clouds?” she replied, “Why, of course.  If there were no clouds, where would the showers of [...]

The four destructive creatures mentioned [Joel 1:4] are actually different stages of the one and carry a prophetic message. The Palmerworm is the locust that just emerged from the egg in spring.  It is known as the Gnawing locust.  The Locust is the same creature in late spring; in its first skin.  It is [...]

“Before Abraham was, I am”  [John 8:58].      “Was” and “Am” are two parts of the verb “to be.”  However, the Greek text uses two different verbs.  “Before Abraham was made (came to be) I am.”  Abraham was a mere creature and came into being.  The Son of God is eternal and uncreated.  Jesus [...]

     This short verse [Genesis 1:16] is one of the most amazing in the Bible, and our minds boggle at the greatness of our God.  It is estimated that there are about 200 billion stars in our Milky Way galaxy.  It has also been estimated that there are about 100 billion other galaxies. If [...]

Sorry, I had no Bits & Pieces for you last week but I had a painful and unpleasant medical condition that put me out of action for some days.  Fortunately, things seem to be on the mend.  I do appreciate your prayers. Tony Puccini was a godly, gracious man who was liked by [...]

“So run, that ye may obtain” 1 Corinthians.9:24. Many have spent the last two weeks glued to their TV sets watching the Olympic games in Japan.  The apostle Paul was familiar with the games of his day.  But he was not just a passive observer.  He used what he saw to present some practical [...]

The apostle Paul was an extremely well-educated man, and no one can read his epistles without being impressed by his giant intellect.  Yet Paul renounced the preaching that uses “wisdom of words”  [1 Corinthians 1:17] for a plainness of speech that left none of his listeners in any doubt about the thrust of his [...]

“Awake to righteousness, and sin not.” A most amazing and amusing human practice is sleep.  Amazingly, one who has reached the Biblical seventy years has already spent about twenty-three in bed!  It is amusing as we all, overcome by an uncontrollable urge, climb into bed, put the lights out, and wait – until the [...]

     The keeping of the Sabbath comes as a Christian obligation by divine example and command.  God rested after creation, and in the fourth commandment He instructed us to keep the Sabbath. Its importance can be seen in its priority.  It was first mentioned in Genesis and in the wilderness before the law was [...]
