An Address to my Brethren

AN ADDRESS TO MY BRETHREN AND FELLOW-MEMBERS OF THE CHURCH WHICH IS CHRIST'S BODY, KNOWN BY WHATEVER NAME. BRETHREN,-The test of even an apostle's message was the truth that he brought.

BREADTH AND LENGTH AND DEPTH AND HEIGHT

"BREADTH AND LENGTH AND DEPTH AND HEIGHT." (Ephesians iii. 18.) HIS expression does not refer to the dimensions of the love of Christ, which the apostle immediately after represents as "passing knowledge," whereas he prays that they may be "able to comprehend what is the breadth and length and depth...

Broken Glimpses

'And their eves were opened. and they knew Him, and He vanished out of their sight.’ Luke xxiv 31.

Christ's Work as Priest on Earth

CHRIST'S WORK AS PRIEST ON EARTH. THE question of the Lord's having been a priest on earth is one to which, now that the attention of many is being drawn to it, should be given due and patient consideration.

Deliverance: What is it?

Filling the Hand

"And he put all upon Aaron's hands, and upon his sons' hands, and waved them for a wave-offering before the Lord. And Moses took them from off their hands, and burnt them on the altar upon the burnt-offering; they were consecrations for a sweet savour; it is an offering made by fire unto the Lord" (...

Fruit or Root? Some Thoughts Upon Job's "Ditch"

We have in the verses before us, no doubt, a typical case of how the Lord makes sin to serve Him. God has His hand upon all, and God makes all things serve Him. "He makes the wrath of man to praise Him, and the remainder of wrath He restrains" (Ps. 76:10). He does not permit one particle of the wrat... Read More

In Christ Jesus

"In Christ Jesus" is the definition of all Christians, and it defines them as a people identified with the One who as a man has entered into the presence of God; "for in that he died, he died unto sin once; but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God" (Rom. 6:10). "In Christ" is the language of comple... Read More

Numerical Structure of the Bible

I have elsewhere related how, some fifteen years ago, the Lord led me into the discovery of a numerical structure everywhere pervading Scripture. I do not need to repeat this here, nor to give proof of the existence of such, as I have there given it. I now call Scripture in general to the proof of i... Read More

Present Things

EPHESUS The ebb-tide of ruin can be stemmed by no hand of ours, and this feebleness of ours may seem an available plea to withdraw us from responsibility as to it. But not so teaches the word of the Lord. Our associations are here distinctly recognized as part of our general condition. We are to "de... Read More
