His Anointing (1 Samuel 16, 17)

A.W. PinkCHAPTER TWO His Anointing 1 Samuel 16 and 17 In our last chapter we called attention to the time in which David’s lot was cast. The spirituality of Israel had indeed fallen to a low ebb. The law of God was no longer heeded, for "every man did that which was right in his own eyes" (Judges 21:25). The... Read More

A.W. PinkIn this chapter we shall attempt little more than to point out the connecting links between the Sinaitic and the Davidic covenants. The various covenants recorded in the Old Testament, as we have previously stated, mark the principal stages in the development of God’s purpose of mercy toward our fal... Read More

"Christ's Sermon On His Deity" Ch. 5

The extent to which the four Gospels were designed to show forth the fulfillment of the O.T. prophecies in the manifestation of Christ Jesus the Son of God, and to introduce in Him the N.T. mystery of the Kingdom of God, the realisation of all O.T. promise to Israel, has not been sufficiently percei...

In the 1st book we see him brought from obscurity into honour and praise, and there standing, by the good hand of God, in full righteousness amid the persecutions of the wicked. In the 2nd...

We are saddened by the escalation of bloodletting which has recently erupted again. This is a matter of urgency seeing that this conflict could have a pola... Read More

I Will Raise Up for David a Righteous Branch

John PiperDecember 13, 1981 "I WILL RAISE UP FOR DAVID A RIGHTEOUS BRANCH" In 1051 B.C., Saul was made the first king of Israel. About forty years later, David, the youngest son of Jesse (1 Sam. 16:11), began to rule. David was "a man after God's own heart" (1 Sam. 13:14) and stands to this day as the embodim... Read More
Principles For The Gathering Of Believers

76 - Chronological Bible Reading of Scriptures

Principles For The Gathering Of BelieversThere is a great need in the body of Christ for consistent reading of the Holy Scriptures in their entirety, book by book, chapter by chapter, verse by verse. In this case we are encouraging a chronological reading of the Scriptures. Most of the confusion is created when certain teachers, groups, or... Read More
