“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 [...]

"I have exalted one chosen out of the people." Psalm 89:19 Why was Christ chosen out of the people? Speak, my heart, for heart-thoughts are best. Was it not that he might be able to be our brother, in the blest tie of kindred blood? Oh, what relationship there is between Christ and the [...]

A little girl who had just returned from Sunday school was asked by her mother, “What did the teacher tell you today?”  The little girl answered that she had heard about a wonderful man called Enoch [Genesis 5:24] and how he walked with God.  She said, “Every day Enoch visited God, and they went [...]

"Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy." Exodus 20:8 That we may sanctify and hallow the Sabbath by attentive hearing, beware of these two things: distraction and drowsiness. It is said of Bernard that when he came to the church door, he would say, "Stay here all my earthly thoughts." Distraction hinders devotion. [...]
