This Week's Focus Passage: Philippians 2:25-30 'But I counted in necessary to send to you Epaphroditus, my brother.'

This Week’s Focus Passage: Philippians 2:12 ‘Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.’

This Week's Focus Passage: Philippians 2:12 'Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.'

Or,...

This Week's Focus Passage: Ephesians 1:4 'Even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world.' After the salutation of verses one and two, the apostle sets before the reader a litany of 'items,' if you will, 'items' that are so solemn, gracious, and remarkable, that it is extremely difficult to know what terms to make use of in describing them unto our mind...

This Week's Focus Passage: 2 Samuel 24:1 'and he moved David against them, saying, Go, number Israel and Judah.' We read in 2 Samuel 24:1, basically, that the Lord moved David against his own people, saying, 'Go, number Israel and Judah.' But do we not read elsewhere that 'Satan stood up against Israel, and moved David to number Israel,' 1 Chronicles 21:1? Well, then,...

On five occasions, each being in the older Testament, with four in the book of Psalms, is the term 'memorial name,' or 'holy memorial name,' used, while it is made use of just once in Hosea 12:5, where we read,Even Jehovah, the God of hosts;Jehovah is h...

This Week's Focus Passage: Mark 10:46ff. 'And when he heard that it was Jesus, the Nazarene, he began to cry out.' We may read the account of a blind beggar in our focus passage this week: And they come to Jericho: and as he went out from Jericho, with his disciples and a great multitude, the son of Timaeus, Bartimaeus, a blind beggar, was sitting by the way side. An...

This Week's Focus Passage: 1 Samuel 1:13 'She spake in her heart; only her lips moved, but her voice was not heard.' In the very first chapter of the first book of Samuel, and nearly the very first verse, we meet up with a man by the name of El-ka-nah; we are told that this man was an Ephraimite.
