Bible Verses on Topic of Christian Persecution

Gospel FellowshipsReason for Persecution: The Cross separates us from the world John 15:18-21 “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hate... Read More

The Apostate's Lifestyle

Let us open our Bibles to 2 Peter 2:10-16: But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities. Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusat... Read More

2 Timothy 4:9-13

John ChrysostomDo your diligence to come shortly unto me: For Demas has forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed unto Thessalonica; Crescens to Galatia, Titus unto Dalmatia. Only Luke is with me. Take Mark, and bring him with you: for he is profitable to me for the ministry. And Tychicus have ... Read More

2 Corinthians 6

John Nelson Darby"Workers together with him." "With him" is not exactly right; the "with" is there, but not the "him." I believe the idea is that of workers with one another; they are companions or journeymen, because they work together. "We then as co-workers beseech that ye [Corinthians] receive not the grace of G... Read More

Has the Church Continued in God's Goodness?

John Nelson DarbyMatthew 13. Has the church continued in God's goodness? Is that which we now see in Christendom what God set up in His church in the beginning, or anything like it? Has not the professing church turned to ceremonies and sacraments, and all kinds of things other than Christ, in order to be saved by t... Read More

Matthew 16:13-28

John Nelson DarbyDear Mr. Editor, I venture to send a few disconnected notes taken many years ago at a lecture by J. N. D. on Matt. 16:13-28. As they are disconnected and imperfect I must, of course, be responsible for them in case I have missed the teacher's thoughts anywhere. I send them as I find them, in an old ... Read More

Reading on 2 Timothy 3

John Nelson DarbyPaul first speaks of the fact that Timothy had known the Holy Scriptures (v. 15); and then he says of every Scripture that it is inspired of God (v. 16). It is an important word, 'Scripture.' Prophecies may have died and passed away, as in the case of Agabus, who prophesied a famine coming; there ma... Read More

Readings on Numbers

John Nelson DarbyREADING 1 Passing by the numbering of the people and the redemption of the firstborn, we might begin with the laws and appointments of chapter 5; they were to keep the camp holy - put out the leper, and so on - "that they defile not their camps, in the midst whereof I dwell." God's dwelling with the... Read More
