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

Romans 8

John Nelson DarbyIn this well-known and remarkable chapter, we have the results of what we have been considering in what precedes. Chapter 5:1-11 gave us the peace, present grace, and hope, which Christ's dying for our sins gave us, and what God is to us in and by it. This chapter gives our state and place before Hi... Read More

That I may win Christ Philippians 3

John Nelson DarbyThis epistle is not one of doctrine. We get, of course, in this chapter, the foundation laid (v.9), but, as often remarked, it is an epistle that gives us the proper experience of the Christian, that is, the power of the Spirit of God working in him in his path; and consequently, we get the spirit a...

The Basis of Deliverance

John Nelson DarbyThe Bible Herald, 1879, pp. 62-67, 102-105. It is the seal of the Spirit which sets free; "where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty" (2 Cor. 3:17). But, further, the basis of deliverance is the work of Christ. By faith, and the Holy Ghost, we reckon ourselves as dead, although living on the... Read More

The Divine Exodus Exodus 15

John Nelson DarbyThe British Herald, 1875, pp. 109-112. In a certain sense the Red Sea had closed the whole history, if you take it in itself as to Egypt (it begins the life in another sense); but it closed the history by redemption and judgment (for the Egyptians were judged), for death which was salvation to Israe...

The Epistle to the Ephesians

John Nelson Darby<35009E> 131 Ephesians 1 Here we have the thought of God about us - all that there is of blessing in Him for us. Angels, principalities, and powers, will learn through us the manifold wisdom of God. Then He unfolds it all. First our calling, then God's purpose as to Christ - His place then our inher...

The Mission of the Comforter John 14 - 16

John Nelson DarbyThere are two ways in which the Holy Ghost is spoken of in John 14 and in the two last verses of John 15. In ch. 14 it is the Father who sends the Holy Ghost in Christ's name; in ch. 15 it is Christ who sends Him. In ch. 14, He is putting us in relationship with the Father; in ch. 15 and in the begi...

The Perfectness of Christ as Man in Temptation Matt. 26:31-56

John Nelson DarbyThe British Herald, 1875, pp. 86-87. That which is so striking in all this history is the entire contrast between "flesh" and Christ in every sense; not so much the wickedness of man rising up against the Lord, as the entire failure of everything around except Christ Himself. It is not divine power,... Read More

The position of man, and of the world, before God

John Nelson DarbyRome was the centre of the universal empire of the world, the Gentile metropolis; and Paul had not been there; but God had made him apostle and teacher of the Gentiles; 2 Tim 1:11. In fulfilling his apostolic function, his heart was naturally drawn toward that seat of the empire and the Christians l... Read More

The Power of Life in Christ Risen 2 Corinthians 5

John Nelson DarbyThe hope of the believer is not death. It is "not to be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality may be swallowed up of life." He need not be unclothed, that is, of himself. The purpose of God is nothing less than that we should be conformed to the image of Christ; Rom. 8. Our proper hope is to s... Read More
