Psalm 119 ‘O How Love I Thy Law! It Is My Meditation All The Day’

Psalm 119'O How Love I Thy Law! It Is My Meditation All The Day' In our Scripture reading schedule for this week, we find the texts from Psalm 119 to include verses 41-104. While it is frequently noted that apart from only two particular verses in this, the 11 9th Psalm, the word of God is referred to in every other single verse, so that it is to be expected, and no surpr...

1 Kings 13:18 ‘But he lied unto him.’

1 Kings 13:18'But he lied unto him.' When we read this somewhat disturbing narrative in the book of 1 Kings and the 13th chapter, we come away with many questions upon our minds as well as our hearts; not the least of which is 'who was this man of God'? The narrative begins for us with a simple pronouncement regarding his appearing, when it tells us; And, behold, there c...

Ephesians 1:4'He chose us in him from before the foundation of the world.' Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ: even as he chose us in him from before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blemish before him, in love having foreordained us unto ...

Psalm 116:15 ‘Precious in the sight of Jehovah is the death of his saints.’

Psalm 116:15'Precious in the sight of Jehovah is the death of his saints.' David has, in his songs and prayers that have been recorded and preserved in the book of Psalms, made frequent references to death, both the death of the righteous as well as the death of the unrighteous. Most notable of the latter, perhaps, is found in the 49th psalm, in the provocative language o...

Galatians 1:6 ‘A different gospel.’

Galatians 1:6'A different gospel.' The devil goes about as a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. And he is well able, we are informed, to transform himself into an angel of light. His fervent desire and plan is to take down the King of glory, the Son of God, the Savior of the world. In order to bring this about, he exercises the fullness of his duplicity and hatred a...

This Week’s Focus Passage: Psalm 100 ‘All people that on earth do dwell, sing to the Lord with cheer

This Week's Focus Passage: Psalm 100 'All people that on earth do dwell, sing to the Lord with cheerful voice.' The inspired heading of this popular psalm states that it is, 'A Psalm of Thanksgiving,' 'A Psalm for the Thank-offering.' One of the greatest privileges of the believer is that privilege of offering thanksgiving and praise unto the Lord for all His mercies. ...

Matthew 4:10 ‘Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God.’

Matthew 4:10'Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God.' This passage is conspicuous as the narration of 'The Temptation' of Jesus by the Devil. It is most worthy of notice that Satan chose to make this attempt [no pun intended] immediately after His baptism by John, of which we may read: Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to the Jordan un...

Matthew 1:21 ‘For it is he that shall save his people from their sins.’

Matthew 1:21'For it is he that shall save his people from their sins.' The entire pericope actually begins with an angel's appearance unto Joseph, at vs. 20, where we do well to listen to all that was spoken unto Joseph, the betrothed of Mary: Butwhen he thought on these things [being minded to put her away], behold, an angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, say...

Job 42:5 ‘I had heard of thee by the hearing of the ear, but now mine eye seeth thee.’

Job 42:5'I had heard of thee by the hearing of the ear, but now mine eye seeth thee.' And Job answered Jehovah, and said, I know that thou canst do all things, and that no purpose of thine can be restrained. Who is this that hideth counsel without knowledge? Therefore have I uttered that which I understood not, things too wonderful for me, which I knew not. Hear, I beseec...

Micah 6:8 ‘….but to do justly, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with thy God.’

Micah 6:8'.but to do justly, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with thy God.' This is, of course, the answer to the question, What is good; and what doth Jehovah require of thee, O man? The Lord says here that He has showed us what is good and that which He requires of us is to do justly, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly before Him. These words are, by far...
