The High Cost of Unbelief

After Israel was miraculously delivered from bondage in Egypt, the Israelites made their way to the land of Canaan.  The LORD would teach them many lessons along the way, but one particular lesson proved to be a costly one.  In Numbers 13, Moses sent 12 spies (one from each of the tribes of Israel) on a 40 day reconnaissance mission to spy out the land of Canaan.  While all 12 spies observed the same things,...

Astounding Incarnation

Before there was a universe, Before a star or planet, When time had still not yet begun – I scarcely understand it – Th’ eternal Word was with his God, God’s very Self-Expression; Th’ eternal Word was God himself – And God had planned redemption. The Word became our flesh and blood – The stuff of his creation – The Word was God, the Word was flesh, Astounding incarnation! But when he came to visit...

HEED THE NEED TO READ

“What has exceedingly hurt you in time past, nay, and I fear, to this day, is lack of reading. I scarce ever knew a preacher who read so little. And perhaps, by neglecting it, you have lost the taste for it. Hence your talent in preaching does not increase. It is just the same as it was seven years ago. It is lively, but not deep; there is little variety; there is no compass of...

The Narrow Way

An excellent biblical example: The number of Israelite males over the age of 20 that came OUT of Egypt in Exodus 38:26 was 603,550. Out of that number, only TWO entered INTO the land of Canaan – Joshua and Caleb (see Numbers 32:11, 12). The rest died in the wilderness. Calculate the PERCENTAGE of males over the age of 20 entering...

The Cross

In evil long I took delight,  Unawed by shame or fear,  Till a new object struck my sight,  And stopped my wild career. I saw One hanging on a tree,  In agonies and blood;  He fixed His languid eyes on me,  As near His cross I stood. Sure never till my latest breath,  Shall I forget that look!  It seemed to charge me with His death,  Though not a word He spoke. A second look...

“Behold, I Come”

“Behold, I come”—the darkness lightens  Above all sorrow and all fear;  Beyond the clouds the Daystar brightens,  And our deliverance is near;  The groaning earth awaits the hour  When all the wrongs of time are past,  And clothed with glory and with power,  The King of kings shall reign at last. —Annie Johnson Flint
