Creation Versus Evolution

This Is Appendix 5 From The Companion Bible. The Introduction to Genesis (and to the whole Bible) Genesis 1:1—2:3, ascribes everything to the living God, creating, making, acting, moving, and speaking. There is no room for evolution without a flat denial of Divine revelation. One must be true, the o... Read More

Genesis: the Foundation of Divine Revelation

This Is Appendix 2 From The Companion Bible. Genesis is the seed-plot of the whole Bible. It is essential to the true understanding of its every part. It is the foundation on which Divine Revelation rests; and on which it is built up. It is not only the foundation of all Truth, but it enters into, a... Read More

A Refreshing Study on the Resurrection

Scripture shuts us up to the blessed hope of being reunited in resurrection. That is why the death of believers is so often called "sleep"; and dying is called "falling asleep"; because of the assured hope of awakening in resurrection. It's language is, "David fell on sleep" (Acts 13:36), not David'... Read More

Christ in the Separate Books of the Word

In GENESIS we shall understand the record of Creation (ch. i.), for we shall see in it the counterpart of our new creation in Christ Jesus (II Cor. v. 17). In the light which shined out of darkness (Gen. i. 2, 3) we shall see the light which has shone "in our hearts to give the knowledge of the glor... Read More

Crucified with Christ

"I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live, yet not I, but Christ liveth 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). "God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ... Read More

Right Division

The one great requirement of the Word is grounded on the fact that it is "the Word of truth." And this fact is so stated as to imply that, unless the Word is thus rightly divided we shall not get "truth"; and that we shall get its truth only in proportion to the measure in which we divide it rightly...

The Christian's Greatest Need

There is one thing that the Christian needs more than he needs any other thing. One thing on which all others rest; and on which all others turn. It is certain from the Word of God, and also from our own experience, that "we know not what we should pray for as we ought". But "the Spirit Himself help... Read More

The Foundations of Dispensational Truth

The Three Spheres of Future Glory. THERE is still something more to learn concerning the dispensations before we can rightly understand the unique position and wonderful teaching of the later Pauline Epistles written from the prison in Rome. These dispensations are commonly spoken of as: two, the ol... Read More

The Ground is Thirsty

A figure is simply a word or a sentence thrown into a peculiar form, different from its original or simplest meaning or use. These forms are constantly used by every speaker and writer. It is impossible to hold the simplest conversation, or to write a few sentences without, it may be unconsciously, ... Read More

The Names of Jesus

"Jesus" "Christ" "Lord" "Jesus Christ" "Christ Jesus" "Son of Man" "Son of God" So little attention has been paid to these titles of the Lord Jesus Christ, that few imagine there is any significance in their choice or order. But enough has already been said to convince us of the importance of accura... Read More

The One Great Subject of the Word

The one great subject which runs through the whole Word of God is Christ: the promised seed of the woman in Gen. 3:15. This verse marks the depth of the ruin into which man had descended in the Fall; and it becomes the foundation of the rest of the Bible. All hope of restoration for man and for crea... Read More

The Resurrection of the Body

There are few subjects that are made more of in the word of God, and there are few subjects that are more set at nought by the traditions of men, than the doctrine of the Resurrection. I believe that it was the late Mr. Spurgeon who lamented the fact that our English theology, while it was rich in e... Read More

They Sang His Praise. They Soon Forgat His Works

"Then believed they His words: they sang His praise. They soon forgat His works: they waited not for His counsel" (Psalm 106:12,13) These are solemn words, because they record a solemn fact. They are true, not only of Israel but of God's people in all ages. They refer to that tendency in the heart o... Read More
