"The priest's lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the law at his mouth." .....Malachi 2:7

In this day of deception and falsehood in the Church, it is possible that much so-called spiritual-revival is on a wrong basis. Spiritual gifts are displayed without measure, but unless there is a ministration of Christ, it is like having many utensils but with nothing in them to use them for. Yet it is worse, for without Christ, so called spiritua...

"While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."....Romans 5:8

Seeing the price of our redemption, how can we do other than to give ourselves totally to the Lord Jesus? "By the mercies of God I beseech you," pleads Paul in Romans 12. Throughout the preceding eleven chapters he has recounted them, God's divine mercies, all the way. God's love led Christ to die for us in the first place, so as to give us His lif...

"If, while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, being reconciled shall we be saved (delivered) by His life." .....Romans 5:10

God makes it quite clear in His word that for every human need He has but only one answer and that answer is His Son. In all of His dealings with us, He works by taking us out of the way and substituting (putting) Christ in our place. Jesus, the Son of God, died in my place, as my substitute on the cross, to pay the price of my sins and secure my f...

Making the most of your time, because the days are evil. So do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is" .....Ephesians 5:16,17

In God's appointed course for you, it may be that today was to have been the greatest day of your life, yet you would let it slip by as if it were just another day. The man whose today is like his yesterday lacks a sense of God's timing. No born again Christian should be content with their present obtainment; for to be satisfied with what you are i...

"The natural man receiveth not the things of the spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him."....1 Cor 2:14

It has pleased God to say many things in His written word to us, which leave room for many misunderstandings, and also not to explain them! Often in the Bible there seems to be conflicting statements, or just statements that seem to violate the known facts of life. And it has pleased Him to leave them there just the way they are without further cla...

"Praise him, O ye servants of the Lord; ye that stand in the house of the Lord, in the courts of the house of our God." ......Psalm 135:1

What a privilege we have to be able stand in praise before the Lord Jesus Christ! It seems to me that today we always want to be moving on, we just can't stand still. So many things claim our attention that we are perpetually moving and on the go. Many things are controlling us rather than us being in control of them! We cannot hardly stop from the...

"Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the custom of some is, but exhorting one another; and so much the more as ye see the day drawing nigh." ....Hebrews 10:25

Christ is the Head of the Church as His body and, "We who are many, are one body in Christ and severally members one of another." All Christian relationships therefore are of one member to another, never one of the leader of an assembly to its members. When an apostle is preaching a great sermon and all the believers are nodding assent, adding thei...

"These are written, that ye may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye may have life in His name." John 20:31

Watchman Nee: "I was once holding meetings in a college in South China. There I found an old school fellow of mine was now a professor of psychology, so before the meetings began I went to call on him, and spoke to him of Christ. After listening a while politely, he said smiling, "It's no good preaching to me, I don't believe there is a God! I 'm a...

"The city was pure gold, like unto pure glass." ....Revelation 21:18

Gold speaks to us here of something that is totally of God and of glass that is transparently pure. May we adapt the latter simile, and suggest that future purity is well illustrated by pure glass, but that our present purity is best described by clear water? For water can readily become clouded with defilement, but no impurity can enter the textur...

Part two of a three day series: "It is no longer I but Christ"

"I am crucified with Christ: yet it is no longer I who lives, but Christ that lives in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me" Galatians 2:20. The cross of Christ is not only the greatest terminator in the universe, it is also the greatest translator. It translates...
