Homily 3 on the Acts of the Apostles

John ChrysostomActs I. 12 Then returned they unto Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is from Jerusalem a sabbath day's journey. Then returned they, it is said: namely, when they had heard. For they could not have borne it, if the angel had not (ὑ περέθετο) referred them to another Coming. It seems to me... Read More

Baptism of the Holy Spirit

John FolletteBaptism of the Holy Spirit is the divine explosion within the innermost part of man which brings to the surface all things good and evil. If you don't find an interior revolution which will affect the external, I question your experience of the baptism of the Holy Spirit. 1. The Holy Spirit is alway... Read More

Babylon

"Sanctify them through Thy truth: Thy word is truth." This is a saying much to be remembered. It teaches us that we are not to make ourselves the judges of what sanctification or holiness is; Gods' word is to determine this, because holiness is that character or mind which is formed by God's word or...

1 Corinthians 1 Notting Hill

John Nelson DarbyThe first thing noticeable here is the distinction between the Church and the profession of Christianity, as shewn in the address of the epistle; it is, "unto the church of God, which is at Corinth, . . . called . . . saints" (not, called to be saints), "with all that in every place call upon the na...

1 Corinthians 15

John Nelson DarbyThe apostle now speaks of resurrection. His keeping it till the last, in this way, is remarkable. We have a great truth brought out in the chapter, in the total identification of Christ with men - saints, but man as man, because he says, if men do not rise, Christ is not risen. I have not the least ... Read More

2 Corinthians 4

John Nelson DarbyPaul comes now to the ministration of it. He says "we faint not." We are right out in the light. But then there is another thing, and that is - he explains how he gives out the word of God as purely as he took it in; he did not handle it deceitfully, but by manifestation of the truth commended himse...

Lecture on Hebrews 2

John Nelson DarbyA wonderful inquiry is this which is quoted from Psalm 8, "What is man, that thou art mindful of him?" - an inquiry founded on the nothingness of man in himself, but bringing out, as God's answer to it, all His counsels in Christ. "What is man, that thou art mindful of him?" Such is his littleness. ... Read More

Lecture on Hebrews 9:19-28

John Nelson DarbyThere are two very distinct parts in this passage to the value of the sacrifice of Christ. The one is its aspect towards God, and the other is its aspect towards us as sinners. There is the putting away of sin by the sacrifice of Himself; and then, He hath borne the sins of many. We find these two a... Read More

Living Water

John Nelson DarbyTHE LIVING WATER JOHN 7 : 37-39 In order fully to understand the meaning of this scripture, and the circumstance for which this feast, to which Jesus went up, is a type, we must, in the first place, see the way in which He is presented to us in Scripture-at present as an absent Lord. Under an antici... Read More

Mark 14

John Nelson DarbyLet us go back to the history of the Lord's life, and to the last days of this blessed life. Two days after was the passover, and the chiefs of the Jews sought to kill Him; nevertheless they feared to stir up a tumult amongst the people, because they felt that His doctrine and miracles had produced ...
