Psalm 74:9 ‘Neither is there among us any that knoweth how long.’

Psalm74-9

Psalm 74:9 'Neither is there among us any that knoweth how long.' We may read in Luke 13:3, 5, the twice repeated asseveration of our Lord Jesus Christ, when He said to His auditory,Except ye repent, ye shall likewise perish. This was spoken firstly after His allusion to the folk whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices, and those who died under the tower ...

Matthew 27:54 ‘Truly this was the Son of God.’

Matthew 27:54 'Truly this was the Son of God.' There are at least two great confessions from the lips of individuals to be found in the gospel narratives given us, and this attestation, found in our focus passage and ascribed to the centurion after that he had witnessed the convulsions that rocked the earth as the Lord of Glory 'yielded up his spirit,' (which convulsions...

Psalm 62:1 - ‘My soul waiteth in silence for God only; from him cometh my salvation.’

1584234208160_verse_image

Psalm 62:1 - 'My soul waiteth in silence for God only; from him cometh my salvation.' One of the modern 'translations' of the Scriptures,The Message, the very centuries they have given here, not a translation, but a paraphrase of what they think that the Psalmist, and thus of course the Holy Spirit, intended to communicate. If one is content with a paraphrase, there is...

Romans 8:28 ‘And we know that to them that love God all things work together for good.’

1583528475405_verse_image

Romans 8:28 'And we know that to them that love God all things work together for good.' In the 'Authorized Version,' the 'A. D. 1611,' best known as the King James Version, this passage from Romans 8:28 has been rendered, as follows: And we know that all things work together for good. This is, of course, not a complete sentence in any translation of which we are awar...

Matthew 21:45 - 'They perceived that He spake of them.' "They perceived that he spake of them;they plainly saw that they were designed by the son that promised to go into the vineyard, but did not; only talked of works, but did not do them: and that they were the husbandmen that acted the ungrateful part to the householder, and the cruel one to his servants, and would to...

Psalm 46: ‘God is our Refuge and Strength.’

1582390628411_verse_image

Psalm 46: 'God is our Refuge and Strength.' One who has written '101 Hymn Stories,' adding at a later date, '101 More Hymn Stories,' is, quite apparently, excited to inform us that this hymn of Martin Luther, 'A Mighty Fortress is our God,' is based on Psalm 46. In fact, our own hymn book has the Scripture reference at the top of the page where this hymn is found,God i...

Psalm 40:7 ‘In the roll of the book it is written of me.’

This Week's Focus Passage: Psalm 40:7 'In the roll of the book it is written of me.' Then said I, Lo, I am come; In the roll of the book it is written of me: I delight to do thy will, O my God: Yea, thy law is within my heart. These beautiful and astounding words are, in all reality, the substance of the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. They are the embodiment (...

Leviticus 1 ‘Behold, the Lamb of God.’

This Week's Focus Passage: Leviticus 1 'Behold, the Lamb of God.' Our readers may read, in their own copies of the Word of God, in Genesis 22:1-2, of the 'proving' or 'tempting' of Abraham by Jehovah. It is rather startling to consider that God would require anyone to offer a human sacrifice, but this is precisely what we read in that particularly astounding passage: ...

1580417923143_verse_image

Focus Passage, Sunday, Feb. 2: Matthew 11:12 'The Kingdom of Heaven suffereth violence, and men of violence take it by force.' In John Bunyan's famous allegory, The Pilgrim's Progress, the reader discovers early in the travels of Christian, the Pilgrim, that he arrives at the house of the Interpreter. At one point in his travels, he encounters a grave person who name w...

Matthew 10:16: Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves.

Weeks Focus Passage: Matthew 10:16 'Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves.' We wish to consider the direction that our Lord Jesus has given to His church as He sent out His twelve disciples. He has informed them, in this passage from Matthew, that they are being sent out into a dangerous world. He sent them forthas sheep in the midst of wolves.He fu...
