I own the name of Jesus,
On Lord's day evening we had Proverbs 8. and were with Wisdom everywhere: "The Lord' possessed me " from before all His works, before He had laid the foundations of the earth and the worlds. The archangel announced His approach in Luke
We may have observed in John's Gospel' the zealous and decided way in which the Lord Jesus sets aside all honor which man might bring to Him, in order that He may establish the grace of God, or the love of the {s

There is a divine wisdom stamped upon every part of the word of God, which needs only the key to its understanding and a heart subject to God, in order to the perception and the precious enjoyment of it.
"Then I went down to the potter's house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels. And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter; so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter
"....Truth is eternal and love endures forever; both are in our precious Savior: let us hold them fast through grace. In these last days everything comes out more plainly as the dawn of the day draws on; I can say that the truth
"A time to plant." "In the morning sow thy seed," &c.
"Cut it down, why cumbereth it the ground?"
No other book in existence of such varied styles, composed by so many hands, and occupying so long a period in its compilation, is marked by so marvelous a unity. A single great scheme underlies, traverses and interpenetrates the Bible, a great and connected system of truth,
Throughout John's Gospel we may perceive that a sense of the glory of His person is ever present
5And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for Christ. (2 Thessalonians 3:5)There are two things, which constitute the joy of a Christian, to be his on the road, and the object constantly before his heart. The first is, the hope of the coming of the Lord; and the second is, present communion and {s
"He is a chosen vessel unto me."―ACTS. 9:15.

God has a way in the world where Satan cannot touch us. This is the path where Jesus walked. Satan is the prince of this world; but there is a divine path through it, but only one, and there God's power is. {s

There are two characters of relationship into which believers are brought: One is, union with Christ; and the other, relationship along with Christ to God as Father, He being the Firstborn of many brethren. " As is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. And
Blest Father! infinite in grace:
" I have declared unto them Thy name, and will declare it." These words were spoken to the Father by Christ respecting the saints. They tell us that the great business of the Lord was to acquaint saints with the Father, that such had already been His
" Created in righteousness and holiness of truth." ( EPHESIANS. 4:24.)
" Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may rest upon me." (2 Cor. 12.)
How long it is before that believers in the Lord can understand that Christ must take the place of everything in and to the saints; that God's object in those " predestinated to be conformed to the image of His Son" (He is the image of

Paul was a model man: a model-man, not of human perfectness, but of what divine grace and goodness could now make of a man who was led by the Spirit and walked with Christ.
"There are two ways in which we may look at our relationship to God, and rightly: first, our coming to Him; and, secondly, our souls looking at the dealings of God towards us.
" The sentence of death." (2 Corinthians. 1:10.)
In the narrative of this chapter, we have a picture of the spirit and character in which the godly remnant of Israel will pass through their trials. It is not to the character of their trials, however, the outward difficulties and deliverances here referred to, so

The bitter waters of Marah must be tasted when the salt waters of the Red Sea have delivered us from Egypt forever and ever. Put the wood of the tree, the cross of Christ, into our cross, and all will be
For Him the wilderness did not sing,
The present is a moment of great significance in the world's history. We often speak of other days as having been strongly characterized, and as of high importance in the progress of the way of man, and in the unfolding of the purposes of God. Were we
When we look a little at the different agents of evil and of delusions exhibited in the book of Revelation, we wonder how any soul will escape. And' then, when we remember that though these agents have not yet been manifested, yet that the energies which
We have to sanctify the Lord God in our hearts (1 Pet. 3:1515But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear: (1 Peter 3:15)). Failing this, we take refuge in " a confederacy " (Is. 8:12-14), some human scheme (whether of our own devising or that of others), for we are unable then to see things on
The Lord says, that the Holy Ghost, the Comforter, which should come, should take the things that were His, and skew them to us (who through grace, are His own); and all that the Father has is His. All the infinitude of the unseen
Sin is the groundwork of all God's dealings now. Is not judgment in respect of sin? So much so that there could be none without it; hence in itself it can only be condemnation. If God judges His own workmanship as it came out
The external plannings of men or Satan further God's plans they succeed, if not, they come to nothing; but what is really going on is inside them all. Thus they would not have taken Jesus on the Feast day, not to have uproar, but he was
Symbolism means types of the Old Testament applicable to things in the New. Both concur in stating that this is so. Moses was commanded to make the tabernacle according to the pattern seen in the Mount. Now if God made such a system,
EPH 7:16It is rather more than thirty years ago that a missionary of the Basle society, named Samuel Hebich, lived and labored on the west coast of India.
He calls them His brethren, and sings in the midst of the Church. Think what it is!―not, You may sing now, for I have accomplished redemption, though this is true; but I will sing! Christ leads our praises: He has associated us with Himself now that He
If acting faithfully, to every step of faithfulness the Lord will surely add more light; only, it behooves us to take counsel of the Lord at every step. Peace with Gibeon only deprives us of victory, and brings upon us other wars and troubles; for
" It is high time to awake out of sleep; for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed." The night of this world is the absence of the Sun of righteousness. Let us clearly conceive this. In the busy and pleasure
The widow is often seen in Scripture as the object of the thoughts of God. But it is not until we come to the epistle to Timothy that we have the different kinds specified, with the indication of those who are widows according to the divine
