Genesis 49:10 'The sceptre shall not depart from Judah.....until Shiloh come.

This week's Focus Passage: Genesis 49:10 'The sceptre shall not depart from Judah.....until Shiloh come. Judah, thee shall thy brethren praise: Thy hand shall be on the neck of thine enemies; Thy father's sons shall bow down before thee. Judah is a lion's whelp; from the prey, my son, thou art gone up: He stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as a lioness, who shall ...

Acts 6:1-6 ‘But we will continue steadfastly in prayer, and in the ministry of the word.’

This Week's Focus Passage: Acts 6:1-6 'But we will continue steadfastly in prayer, and in the ministry of the word.' These words uttered by Peter on the occasion of a discrimination scandal regarding the care of the widows in the recently formed Jerusalem church right after Pentecost, were his response, his answer to this apparent dilemma. It strikes us that it corres...

Acts 2:39 ‘For to you is the promise, and to your children.’

This Week's Focus Passage: Acts 2:39 'For to you is the promise, and to your children.' How does this statement provide support for the idea, at least in the New Testament economy, of the children of believers being considered thereby to be, 'covenant children,' or, 'children of the covenant?' Or, how is it related to the argument of the paedo-baptist, that is, that...

Daniel 3:17 ‘Our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace.’

This Week's Focus Passage: Daniel 3:17 'Our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace.' Sermons, books, and Sunday School lessons have resounded over the years with the exhortation, in one form or another, in some words or other, that the hearers, readers, or students, should, 'Dare to be a Daniel!!' The great, marvelous faith of Daniel, rig...

Job 42:5 ‘But now mine eye seeth thee.’

This Week's Focus Passage: Job 42:5 'But now mine eye seeth thee.' Wishing to make it absolutely clear that it is not, in any way, being suggested that this experience of Job recorded in the 42ndchapter of that inspired book of the Older Testament, we nonetheless, suggest that it does give every indication, in its progress and process, that what Job has been led to utt...

Micah 7:18 ‘Because He delighteth in lovingkindness.’

This Week's Focus Passage: Micah 7:18 'Because He delighteth in lovingkindness.' The grand and gorgeous pericope from whence this blessed truth emanates cannot but be replicated below as a gracious and glorious statement about our God: Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth over the transgressions of the remnant of his heritage? he retainet...

John 17:23 ‘Thou didst send me, and lovedst them, even as thou lovedst me.’

This Week's Focus Passage: John 17:23 'Thou didst send me, and lovedst them, even as thou lovedst me.' Wow! Allow me to state that once again for your reading pleasure. Jesus here informed His disciples in the midst of what is frequently referred to as, His 'High Priestly Prayer,' in John 17. The sentence has its beginning in verse 22, and flows into, and includes, ve...

Hosea 4:17 ‘Ephraim is joined to idols, let him alone.’

This Week's Focus Passage: Hosea 4:17 'Ephraim is joined to idols, let him alone.' A relatively recent translation of the Holy Scriptures, the GOD'S WORD translation, renders this verse in the following manner;The people of Ephraim have chosen to worship idols. Leave them alone!When we consider communion as a "being joined" and "having chosen to be joined", it is diffic...

John 13:21 ‘One of you shall betray me.’

This Week's Focus Passage: John 13:21 'One of you shall betray me.' We may read, in Psalm 41:7-9, the following, rather astounding words of deception and betrayal, in this predictive Davidic psalm, when the Holy Spirit says;All that hate me whisper together against me; Against me do they devise my hurt. An evil disease, say they, cleaveth fast un...
