This Week’s Focus Passage: Psalm 15:4 ‘In whose eyes a reprobate is despised, but who honoreth them

This Week's Focus Passage: Psalm 15:4 'In whose eyes a reprobate is despised, but who honoreth them that fear Jehovah.' In order to better understand what David has here written, we offer the entire fifteenth psalm, for each one of us to read over, and ponder over some details: A Psalm of David Jehovah, who shall sojourn in thy tabernacle? Who shall dwell in thy...

This Week’s Focus Passage: Genesis 4:5 ‘But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect.’

This Week's Focus Passage: Genesis 4:5 'But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect.' What is the 'Regulative Principle'? Derek Thomas recently offered this definition. His claim is, that, "Put simply, the regulative principle of worship states that the corporate worship of God is to be founded upon specific directions of Scripture." He continues, asserting tha...

This Week’s Focus Passage: The Second Psalm ‘Yet I have set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.’

This Week's Focus Passage: The Second Psalm 'Yet I have set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.' There are, at least, several important questions put forward here at the very beginning of this second Psa.Let us attempt to consider each one; moving along. Why do the nations rage? Why do the peoples meditate a vain thing? Why do the kings of the earth set themselves?...

This Week’s Focus Passage: Malachi 3:16 ‘Then they that feared Jehovah spake one with another, and J

This Week's Focus Passage: Malachi 3:16 'Then they that feared Jehovah spake one with another, and Jehovah hearkened.' Malachi is a very interesting book of the Bible, in its own right, but it is also noteworthy, if not simply for the fact that it is the final book of the Older Testament. Being in that position, it is, we might fairly say, the gateway to the Newer Test...

This Week’s Focus Passage: Jonah 1:1 ‘Now the word of Jehovah came unto Jonah the son of Amittai.’

This Week's Focus Passage: Jonah 1:1 'Now the word of Jehovah came unto Jonah the son of Amittai.' What a strange tale is here before us in this relatively small book out of the Old Testament. There are a large number of 'surprises' contained in this brief account of a prophet of God. But, just who was Jonah; this seems to be a very abrupt statement here at the very beg...

This Week’s Focus Passage: John 17:23 ‘That the world may know that thou didst send me, and lovedst

This Week's Focus Passage: John 17:23 'That the world may know that thou didst send me, and lovedst them, even as thou lovedst me.' Is this God's truth? Is it really so; that Jehovah would, and could, love His creatures, as much as He loves His darling Son, our blessed Lord Jesus Christ? But is this not precisely what is here written? What is here clearly stated; how...

This Week’s Focus Passage: 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, namely, 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 'being joined' and 'having chosen to be joined,' it...

This Week’s Focus Passage: Jude 14 (Monday Moanin’) ‘And to these also Enoch, the seventh from Adam,

This Week's Focus Passage: Jude 14 (Monday Moanin') 'And to these also Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied.' Who was Enoch? At the first glance, it would appear that there were two men, in the Word of God, called by the name, Enoch. And the seemingly simplest manner of distinguishing them, one from another, is to 'search the Scriptures,' where we find several ref...

This Week’s Focus Passage: John 11:43 ‘He cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.’

This Week's Focus Passage: John 11:43 'He cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.' There are, actually, three separate occasions, recorded for us in the Scriptures, where our Lord Jesus Christ, performed the miracle of raising to life one who was already dead. And the account of Lazarus, the brother of Mary and Martha, found only in the eleventh chapter of John's ...

This Week’s Focus Passage: 1 John 3:1 ‘Behold what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us.’

This Week's Focus Passage: 1 John 3:1 'Behold what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us.' The entire pericope should be set before us here, in this week's comments; Behold what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called children of God; and such we are. For this cause the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. Belove...
