"He looketh upon men, and if any say, I have sinned, and perverted that which was right, and it profited me not; He will deliver his soul from going into the pit, and his life shall see the light." Job 33:27-28
This is a word of truth, gathered from the experience of a man of God, and it is tantamount to a promise. What the LORD has done, and is doing, He will continue to do while the world standeth. The LORD will receive into...
Bible verses: Job 33:27-28
"He will keep the feet of His saints." 1 Samuel 2:9
The way is slippery and our feet are feeble, but the LORD will keep our feet. If we give ourselves up by obedient faith to be His holy ones, He will Himself be our guardian. Not only will He charge His angels to keep us, but He Himself will preserve our goings.
He will keep our feet from falling so that we do not defile our garments, wound our souls, and cause the enemy to...
Bible verses: 1 Samuel 2:9
"And he shall put his hand upon the head of the burnt offering: and it shall be accepted for him to make atonement for him." Leviticus 1:4
If by that laying on of his hand the bullock became the offerer's sacrifice, how much more shall Jesus become ours by the laying on of the hand of faith?
"My faith doth lay her hand On that dear head of Thine, While like a penitent I stand, And there confess my sin."
Bible verses: Leviticus 1:4
"Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the LORD will deliver him in time of trouble." Psalms 41:1
To think about the poor and let them lie on our hearts is a Christian man's duty; for Jesus put them with us and near us when He said, "The poor ye have always with you."
Many give their money to the poor in a hurry, without thought; and many more give nothing at all. This precious promise belongs to those who "consider" the...
Bible verses: Psalms 41:1
"The Egyptians shall know that I am the LORD." Exodus 7:5
The ungodly world is hard to teach. Egypt does not know Jehovah and therefore dares to set up its idols and even ventures to ask, "Who is the LORD?" Yet the LORD means to break proud hearts, whether they will or not. When His judgments thunder over their heads, darken their skies, destroy their harvests, and slay their sons, they begin to discern somewhat of Jehovah's power....
Bible verses: Exodus 7:5
"To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the Tree Of Life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God." Revelation 2:7
No man may turn his back in the day of battle or refuse to go to the holy war. We must fight if we would reign, and we must carry on the warfare till we overcome every enemy, or else this promise is not for us, since it is only for "him that overcometh." We are to overcome the false prophets who have come...
Bible verses: Revelation 2:7
"If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the LORD Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." Romans 10:9
There must be confession with the mouth. Have I made it? Have I openly avowed my faith in Jesus as the Savior whom God has raised from the dead, and have I done it in God's way! Let me honestly answer this question.
There must also be belief with the heart. Do I...
Bible verses: Romans 10:9
"When Thou shalt make His soul an offering for sin, He shall see His seed." Isaiah 53:10
Our LORD Jesus has not died in vain. His death was sacrificial: He died as our substitute, because death was the penalty of our sins. Because His substitution was accepted of God, He has saved those for whom He made His soul a sacrifice. By death He became like the corn of wheat which bringeth forth much fruit. There must be a succession of...
Bible verses: Isaiah 53:10
"And He said, Certainly I will be with thee." Exodus 3:12
Of course, if the LORD sent Moses on an errand, He would not let him go alone. The tremendous risk which it would involve and the great power it would require would render it ridiculous for God to send a poor lone Hebrew to confront the mightiest king in all the world and then leave him to himself. It could not be imagined that a wise God would match poor Moses with Pharaoh...
Bible verses: Exodus 3:12
"And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shalt be delivered." Joel 2:32
Why do I not call on His name? Why do I run to this neighbor and that when God is so near and will hear my faintest call? Why do I sit down and devise schemes and invent plans! Why not at once roll myself and my burden upon the LORD? Straightforward is the best runner why do I not run at once to the living God? In vain...
Bible verses: Joel 2:32
"For the needy shall not always be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever." Psalms 9:18
Poverty is a hard heritage; but those who trust in the LORD are made rich by faith. They know that they are not forgotten of God, and though it may seem that they are overlooked in His providential distribution of good things, they look for a time when all this shall be righted. Lazarus will not always lie among the...
Bible verses: Psalms 9:18
"Come unto Me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28
We who are saved find rest in Jesus. Those who are not saved will receive rest if they come to Him, for here He promises to "give" it. Nothing can be freer than a gift; let us gladly accept what He gladly gives. You are not to buy it, nor to borrow it, but to receive it as a gift. You labor under the lash of ambition, covetousness, lust,...
Bible verses: Matthew 11:28
"Him that cometh to Me I will in no wise cast out." John 6:37
Is there any instance of our LORD's casting out a coming one? If there be so, we would like to know of it; but there has been none, and there never will be. Among the lost souls in hell there is not one that can say, "I went to Jesus, and He refused me." It is not possible that you or I should be the first to whom Jesus shall break His word. Let us not entertain so dark...
Bible verses: John 6:37
"For the LORD will not cast off for ever." Lamentations 3:31
He may cast away for a season but not forever. A woman may leave off her ornaments for a few days, but she will not forget them or throw them upon the dunghill. It is not like the LORD to cast off those whom He loves, for "having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end." Some talk of our being in grace and out of it, as if we were like rabbits...
