Monthly Question PagePart 2

(Continued from last month.)

Q. Why does it say, “And almost all things are by the law purged with blood” (Hebrews 9:22)? What things were not purged by blood?

A. Last month, we noted that with the “meat (meal) offering” there was no shedding of blood. This typifies a person being brought into blessing through simple faith in the person of Christ, even though they don’t have a clear understanding of His finished work on the cross. This would include young children, and those who have never had the gospel explained to them.

“This is the offering … the tenth part of an ephah of fine flour for a meat offering perpetual” (Leviticus 6:20). The “fine flour” speaks of the perfections of the person of the Lord Jesus Christ. There will be many in heaven who, like the woman in the days when the Lord was on earth, “touched the hem of His garment” (Matthew 9:20). They didn’t grasp the full implications of the Lord’s death and shedding of blood, but they had a simple, child-like appreciation of who He was and a love for Himself. Thus, the term, “almost all things.”

We would love to hear from you.

Monthly Scripture Reading

Jeremiah 18

1 The word which came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying,

2 Arise, and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause thee to hear My words.

3 Then I went down to the potter’s house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels.

4 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 to make it.

5 Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

6 O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the Lord. Behold, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are ye in Mine hand, O house of Israel.

7 At what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up, and to pull down, and to destroy it;

8 If that nation, against whom I have pronounced, turn from their evil, I will repent of the evil that I thought to do unto them.

God Is for Us

“Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest … . Fear not, nor be dismayed, be strong and of good courage: for thus shall the Lord do to all your enemies against whom ye fight” (Joshua 1:9; 10:25).

Every day we can have confidence and assurance that our Savior and Friend, Jesus Christ, is with us and on our side in our daily battles with our enemy, Satan. We must never forget that we are very special to God the Father and to the Lord. Remember, we cost them a great deal. The Father sent the Son, and the Lord Jesus gave His life and shed His blood for us on Calvary’s cross. He died so that we could be with Him for all eternity.

We can face the enemy and overcome; not in our own strength or through our own devices, but in the power of the one of whom we read, “If God be for us, who can be against us” (Romans 8:31)?

The realization of this wonderful truth should be a real encouragement to us. God does not look down on us. We are His children and He loves us very much. Remember this, and take courage as you face the day.

Dear Young Christian:

If we are honest with ourselves, we have to admit that every day brings its own perplexities. How good it is to know that the guidance of the Lord is continual. “And the Lord shall guide thee continually” (Isaiah 58:11).

However, if we choose our own way, we cast off the Lord’s guidance. If we abstain from self-will, then He will direct our every step. If we will only let ourselves be guided by Him, we will be sure of a sense of His presence with us to give His peace and joy to our hearts, and to be “our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble” (Psalm 46:1).

Asaph, the inspired writer of Psalm 73, summed it up with these words:“Nevertheless I am continually with Thee: Thou hast holden me by my right hand. Thou shalt guide me with Thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory. Whom have I in heaven but Thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside Thee” (Psalm 73:23-25). Let’s truly seek the Lord’s guidance this week and walk in the light and joy of His company.

Your Christian Friend,

Jim Hyland

We would love to hear from you.

Thinking of Him

“Then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another: and the Lord hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before Him for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon His name” (Malachi 3:16).

Our thinking about Jesus gives extreme pleasure to God His Father, and He especially remembers those that think on the Lord’s name. That name of JESUS is very dear to God’s heart. It is recorded of Him, “Then I was by Him, as one brought up with Him: and I was daily His delight, rejoicing always before Him” (Proverbs 8:30). His Father declared from the open heavens, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased” (Matthew 3:17).

It is the name above every name, that God has given Him. “That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow” (Philippians 2:10).

It’s the name of His only Son. Today, many of us will remember the Lord in His death at Calvary. We will mention His name many times. And there will be some silent times as we think on His name and thank Him from our hearts for what He did to save us. Think on Jesus today.

Neglected Warning

On the night of April 14th-15th, 1912, the finest and safest vessel that had ever been built, the “unsinkable Titanic,” struck an iceberg and sank. “The staggering fact,” an editor commented, “is not that the ship went down, but that she went down after fifteen hours of radio warnings, her engines at full speed, her band playing, her passengers dancing and, apparently, nobody caring that there was ice ahead.”

We shake our heads at such neglect and foolishness. More than fifteen hundred lives lost, which made it one of the deadliest peacetime maritime disasters in history. The saddest part about it is that it could have been avoided.

And yet there are many at this moment who are heading for destruction and they seem to have little if any concern or care about it. There is a moment coming when “the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of His power” (2 Thessalonians 1:7-9). Have you heeded the warnings? Don’t wait until it is too late!

Psalm 23Part 11

 “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life” (Psalm 23:6).

Several years ago, my wife and I drove through Wales. It is a country of rolling green hills dotted with quaint farms full of flocks of sheep. As we came over a hill, we were suddenly brought to a dead stop due to a large flock crossing the road. Out front, we could see the shepherd leading his sheep to fresh pasture. As the last of the sheep came into view, we noticed two sheep dogs hard at work keeping the stragglers and those that wanted to go their own way from taking off in the wrong direction. I said to my wife, “That’s Goodness and Mercy.”

Yes, we have the goodness of God to enjoy and rest in. “The goodness of God endureth continually” (Psalm 52:1). And we also have His mercy to carry us through every situation: “His mercy endureth forever” (Psalm 118:1). With the Great Shepherd leading us, and His goodness and mercy to follow and protect us, we can indeed follow on as His sheep no matter how steep or difficult the path of faith, and no matter how much the enemy seeks to discourage us and lead us astray.

Our God

“The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms” (Deuteronomy 33:27).

This is a marvelous thought to begin and end each day.

The first part of the verse uses words of power and protection. “The eternal God,” is power. “Thy refuge” is protection.

The second part of the verses uses words of consistency and compassion. “Everlasting” is consistency. “Arms” would speak of compassion.

Yes, we are guarded from above, around, and underneath. Such truth should encourage us to trust in our God at all times, in all circumstances. This is our God, and we can have full confidence in His wisdom, power, love, and purpose. We can echo the language of the prophet, “Lo, this is our God; we have waited for Him, and He will save us: this is the Lord; we have waited for Him, we will be glad and rejoice in His salvation” (Isaiah 25:9).

His power far exceeds our thought,
His love will never fail,
This God is ours and we are His,
Why should we fear or quail.
