Through the Bible - Genesis 29-31

Chuck SmithThen Jacob went on his journey, and came to the land of the people of the east. And he looked, behold there was a well in the field, and, there were three flocks of sheep lying by it; for out of that well they watered the flocks: and a great stone was upon the well's mouth.

The Church at Thessalonica

We easily perceive different measures of attainment, both in knowledge and grace, in the churches of old. The elevation, for instance, of that at Ephesus was much above that at Corinth. At Corinth the apostle had to occupy himself with the corruption of various errors and abuses, and was thus hinder... Read More

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

God is greater

Tom MacartneyGod is greater than our enemies: the world, the flesh and the devil One of the most encouraging verses in the Bible is 1 John 4:4, “Greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world”.

Heaven and Earth

The scene of the divine handiwork was twofold; and, accordingly, "in the dispensation of the fulness of times," God will display Himself again, both in heaven and on earth. I would begin my meditation on this divine subject with Genesis 1 - 47... Read More

Jacob in Genesis 28 - 36

From that chapter to chapter 36, Jacob is principal; and it is that portion which I now purpose to consider.

Christmas is God Shining In

J. Vernon McGeeThe first time that Christ came to this earth was not two thousand years ago at Bethlehem, but some six thousand years ago in the Garden of Eden. An abnormal emphasis has been placed on the birth of Christ at Bethlehem. This emphasis has given us a rather warped conception of the thing that God woul... Read More

The Art of Divine Contentment: Chapter 10

Thomas WatsonUse III. A Suasive to Contentment. It exhorts us to labour for contentation; this is that which doth beautify and bespangle a Christian, and as a spiritual embroidery, doth set him off in the eyes of the world. But methinks I hear some bitterly complaining, and saying to me, Alas! how is it possible... Read More
