"Perplexed, yet not unto despair" ....2 Corinthians 4:8

From the day I was first saved, my sincere ambition was to be a true Christian. Of course I had my own conception of what a Christian should be, and tried my upmost to be that kind of Christian. A true Christian, I reasoned, should smile from morning to night! If ever he shed a tear, he had ceased to be victorious. He must also be unfailingly coura...

"I had not known sin, except through the law: for I had not known coveting, except the law had said, thou shalt not covet." ....Romans 7:7

But as a means to realising that purpose, God needs those who are willing to step right into a place of death if need be and to stand there steadfast until all are safely over. Because that little band of priests did so, hold...

"Whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom He receiveth." ...Hebrews 12:6

  It seems clear that Spiritual vision by itself is not enough to transform a life. Consider Jacob's ladder. Because of his crooked behaviour, Jacob had lost his home and all his possessions. Yet in spite of this, God favoured Him at Bethel with a vision so marvellous that he was moved to exclaim, "How dreadful is this place!" The promises tha...
