Dear Reader

letter

Do we know anything of such an attitude? Have we been looking at the things which are seen today or at the things that are unseen? These things are revealed so that we can look at them. “Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth” (Colossians 3:2). Associated with Him, risen with Him, set your mind on Him. The affections and the mind are distinct things; the Spirit assumes that the affections will follow Christ there, but is the mind there? The cross upon earth answers to the heavenly...

God’s new year!

man running

“This month shall be unto you the beginning of months; it shall be the first moth of the year to you” (Exodus 12:12). For God to make an entirely new beginning is significant enough to captivate all our attention. His people are in the land of Egypt—to them the land of bondage and death—and it is to such a people that this glad message of God’s New Year is sent. The chapters containing this message (12 and 13) are so instilled with New Testament atmosphere that our hearts are captivated by the...

Demand and Supply!

heart

Law or Grace One stands for demand. The other stands for supply. One is connected with Mount Sinai (Hebrews 12:18-21). The other is connected with Mount Sion (Hebrews. 12:22-24). One is the ministration of condemnation (2 Corinthians 3:9) and of death (3:7). The other is the ministration of righteousness (2 Corinthians 3:9) and of the Spirit (3:8). The Mediator of the first was Moses (Galatians 3:19). The Mediator of the second is the Lord Jesus Christ (Hebrews 12:24). The one was glorious,...

“What doest thou here?”

man walking

This question appears twice in 1 Kings 19, and is addressed to Elijah, who was in a wrong place having fled from Jezebel. Sadly, he sought to justify his position. I believe it is necessary for all of us to take stock sometimes of why we are where we are. This may involve where we are geographically, but primarily where are we spiritually, in the testimony. In the garments of the high priest, the names of the children of Israel according to their birth were inscribed upon the two onyx stones which...

Assurance and Protection!

man carrying his child

Uncertainty as to the future, and discontent with present conditions are the chief features of the world as we know it; and it is not pessimism but the truth that says, no man or group of men, no party, nations or league of nations has any practical remedy for things as they are. We have no intention of wasting our time or space in proving this; we have no need to, for it is being proclaimed from every house top. But it is our intention to urge upon our Christian friends that they need not be uncertain...

Three Apples

lady on computer

They say three apples have changed world history: the apple in the Garden of Eden, the apple that fell on Isaac Newton’s head, and Apple, Inc. Steve Jobs, the co-founder and CEO of Apple, Inc. had an uncanny knack for anticipating technological change. Apple and its “iProducts” are at the forefront of the IT revolution that is changing the way we use and communicate information. As for Isaac Newton’s apple, it didn’t really fall on his head but it did make him think, “Why should that apple always...
