Sanctification (holiness) without
which no one will see the Lord
Unless one is born
again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.-- Nothing unclean and no one
who practices abomination and lying, shall ever come into it.-- There is no
blemish in you.
You shall be holy, for I the LORD your God
am holy-- As obedient children, do not be conformed to the former lusts
which were yours in your ignorance, but like the Holy One who called you, be
holy yourselves also in all your behavior because it is written, YOU SHALL
BE HOLY, FOR I AM HOLY. And if you address as Father the One who impartially
judges according to each man's work, conduct yourselves in fear during the
time of your stay upon earth -- Lay aside the old self, which is being
corrupted in accordance with the lusts of deceit, and that you be renewed in
the spirit of your mind, and put on the new self, which in the likeness of
God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth. -- He chose
us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and
blameless before Him.
He 12.14. Jn 3.3.--Re
Song 4.7. Lv 19.2.--1Pe 1.14, 15, 16, 17.
Ep 4.22, 23, 24. Ep. 1.4.
is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or
children or farms, for My sake and for the gospel's sake, but that he shall
receive a hundred times as much now in the present age, houses and brothers
and sisters and mothers and children and farms, along with persecutions; and
in the age to come, eternal life.
Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery
ordeal among you, which comes upon you for your testing, as though some
strange thing were happening to you -- Now for a little while, if (since)
necessary, you have been distressed by various trials, that the proof of
your faith, being more precious than gold which is perishable, even though
tested by fire, may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the
revelation of Jesus Christ.
The God of all grace, Who called you to His
eternal glory in Christ, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen and
establish you.-- In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have
overcome the world.

A SHELTER FROM THE TEMPEST
"And a man shall be as a
hiding-place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest...as the shadow
of a great rock in a weary land."-- Isaiah 32:2.
WE ARE reminded that this prophecy
was uttered in a time of great unrest. The clouds of war were gathering
dark on the horizon, and Israel was looking for help from the arm of
flesh. In this emergency the voice of the prophet was heard, saying: "Look
not to Egypt, but to God" (Isaiah 31:1). The kingdom depends on the
king: "Behold a king shall reign in righteousness, and princes rule in
judgment." When all politics and commerce, social and domestic life are
under the sway and guidance of Jesus Christ, the Kingdom of God will come,
and the Will of God shall be done on earth, as in heaven. The Lord Jesus
is many-sided enough to meet all the varied needs of His people. Some need
a covert from the tempest, others rivers of water to quench their thirst,
others the shadow of a great rock in a weary land. But He is all and equal
to all. When a man or woman owns the sway of Christ, eyes and ears are
cleansed, there is no longer the hesitation of stammering confession, the
judgment becomes rectified and the heart opened to a new generosity. First
righteousness, then peace--such is heaven's eternal order.
This is a marvellous chapter! Note
the words of warning to the women of Jerusalem. After all, the religious
and political life of a nation is very much what the women make it, and
there can never be a widespread deepening of religious life unless the
women, who have such great capacity for God, turn to Him in repentance and
Are our conditions similar? Surely
they are! For if in the days of Solomon it was true that all things were
full of labour and stress, how much more true is it in our time! The tides
of human life are high and stormy, and there is no sense of security. We
may surely plead that we need the quiet resting-places and sure dwellings,
in which our souls may shelter! The promise is made to "'My people"--to
those who have heard and obeyed the voice of the Good Shepherd. If you are
one of the weakest and lowliest of these, you may draw comfort here (Isaiah 32:18).
Bring us, O Lord, through the
troubled waters of life into a haven of repose. Hide us secretly in Thy
pavilion from the strife of tongues and the fiery darts of the wicked one.
May we be at peace with Thee, with ourselves, and with all. AMEN.
by C H Spurgeon
(Read C H Spurgeon's testimony
- It is miraculous as is EVERY testimony of the new birth)
A Sound Heart
Let my heart be sound in thy statutes: that I be not ashamed.
We may regard this inspired prayer as containing within itself the
assurance that those who keep close to the Word of God shall never
have cause to be ashamed of doing so.
See, the prayer is for soundness of heart. A sound creed is good,
a sound judgment concerning it is better, but a sound heart toward
the truth is best of all. We must love the truth, feel the truth,
and obey the truth, otherwise we are not truly sound in God's
statutes. Are there many in these evil days who are sound? Oh,
that the writer and the reader may be two of this sort!
Many will be ashamed in the last great day, when all disputes will
be decided. Then they will see the folly of their inventions and
be filled with remorse because of their proud infidelity and
willful defiance of the Lord; but he who believed what the Lord
taught and did what the Lord commanded will stand forth justified
in what he did. Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun.
Men much slandered and abused shall find their shame turned into
glory in that day.
Let us pray the prayer of our text, and we may be sure that its
promise will be fulfilled to us. If the Lord makes us sound, He
will keep us safe.
MORNING AND EVENING
Spurgeon's Morning Reading, June
“And they were all filled with the Holy
Rich were the blessings of this day if all of us were filled with the Holy
Ghost. The consequences of this sacred filling of the soul it would be
impossible to overestimate. Life, comfort, light, purity, power, peace;
and many other precious blessings are inseparable from the Spirit’s benign
presence. As sacred oil, he anoints the head of the believer, sets him
apart to the priesthood of saints, and gives him grace to execute his
office aright. As the only truly purifying water he cleanses us from the
power of sin and sanctifies us unto holiness, working in us to will and to
do of the Lord’s good pleasure. As the light, he manifested to us at first
our lost estate, and now he reveals the Lord Jesus to us and in us, and
guides us in the way of righteousness. Enlightened by his pure celestial
ray, we are no more darkness but light in the Lord. As fire, he both
purges us from dross, and sets our consecrated nature on a blaze. He is
the sacrificial flame by which we are enabled to offer our whole souls as
a living sacrifice unto God. As heavenly dew, he removes our barrenness
and fertilizes our lives. O that he would drop from above upon us at this
early hour! Such morning dew would be a sweet commencement for the day. As
the dove, with wings of peaceful love he broods over his Church and over
the souls of believers, and as a Comforter he dispels the cares and doubts
which mar the peace of his beloved. He descends upon the chosen as upon
the Lord in Jordan, and bears witness to their sonship by working in them
a filial spirit by which they cry Abba, Father. As the wind, he brings the
breath of life to men; blowing where he listeth he performs the quickening
operations by which the spiritual creation is animated and sustained.
Would to God, that we might feel his presence this day and every day.
Spurgeon's Evening Reading Evening, June
“My Beloved is mine, and I am his: he feedeth among the lilies.
Until the day break, and the shadows flee away, turn, my Beloved, and be
thou like a roe or a young hart upon the mountains of Bether.”
Song of Solomon 2:16, 17
Surely if there be a happy verse in the Bible it is this—“My Beloved is
mine, and I am his.” So peaceful, so full of assurance, so overrunning
with happiness and contentment is it, that it might well have been written
by the same hand which penned the twenty-third Psalm. Yet though the
prospect is exceeding fair and lovely—earth cannot show its superior—it is
not entirely a sunlit landscape. There is a cloud in the sky which casts a
shadow over the scene. Listen, “Until the day break, and the shadows flee
There is a word, too, about the “mountains of Bether,” or, “the mountains
of division,” and to our love, anything like division is bitterness.
Beloved, this may be your present state of mind; you do not doubt your
salvation; you know that Christ is yours, but you are not feasting with
him. You understand your vital interest in him, so that you have no shadow
of a doubt of your being his, and of his being yours, but still his left
hand is not under your head, nor doth his right hand embrace you. A shade
of sadness is cast over your heart, perhaps by affliction, certainly by
the temporary absence of your Lord, so even while exclaiming, “I am his,”
you are forced to take to your knees, and to pray, “Until the day break,
and the shadows flee away, turn, my Beloved.”
“Where is he?” asks the soul. And the answer comes, “He feedeth among the
lilies.” If we would find Christ, we must get into communion with his
people, we must come to the ordinances with his saints. Oh, for an evening
glimpse of him! Oh, to sup with him tonight!
"Year Book" 1895
"Strengthening the hearts of
the disciples by encouraging them to continue in the faith, and by
telling them, 'It is necessary to pass through many troubles on
our way into the kingdom of God.'" Acts 14:22
The best things of life—come
out of wounding. Wheat is crushed—before it becomes bread. Incense
must be cast upon the fire—before its odors are set free. The
ground must be broken with the sharp plough—before it is ready to
receive the seed. It is the broken heart, which pleases God. The
sweetest joys in life—are the fruits of sorrow. Human nature seems
to need suffering, to fit it for being a blessing to the world.
JUNE The Nineteenth
RECKONING UP THINGS
Psalm 90:1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12
NUMBERING things is one of the healthful exercises of the spiritual life.
Unless we count, memory is apt to be very tricky and to snare us into
strange forgetfulness. Unless we count what we have given away, we are
very apt to exaggerate our bounty. We often think we have given when we
have only listened to appeals; the mere audience has been mistaken for
active beneficence. The remedy for all this is occasionally to count our
benevolences and see how we stand in a balance-sheet which we could
present to the Lord Himself.
And we must count our blessings. It is when our arithmetic fails in the
task, and when counting God’s blessings is like telling the number of the
stars, that our souls bow low before the eternal goodness, and all
murmuring dies away “like cloud-spots in the dawn.”
And we must also “number our days.” (Ps 90:12) We are wasteful with them, and we
throw them away as though they are ours in endless procession. And yet
there are only seven days in a week! A day is of immeasurable
preciousness, for what high accomplishment may it not witness? A day in
health or in sickness, spent unto God, and applied unto wisdom, will
gather treasures more precious than rubies and gold.

Global Prayer Digest
(1) GLOBAL PRAYER DIGEST
The Buol people’s former sultans were quite effective implementing
a class system of the have’s and the have nots. Zul, a simple rice
farmer, definitely inherited the takdir (fate given by Allah) of
the have not’s.
Zul’s neighbors, Burhan and his wife, had recently begun to talk
with him about the prophet Isa (Jesus). They invited Zul and his
family to a discussion of the prophets as studied from the books
of Moses, Psalms, and the gospels. During his last crop failure,
Zul had observed Burhan and his wife standing in the middle of
their rice field as they cried out to Allah in the name of Isa Al
Masih (Jesus the Messiah). They asked Allah to bring rain for the
parched land so that Allah would be glorified. A beautiful rain
did descend at that moment! Mysteriously though, rain fell only
upon Burhan and his family’s farm. That prayer and apparent
intimacy with Allah had mystified Zul. Why did Allah answer
Burhan’s prayer in the name of Isa Al Masih and not his?
Pray for the Holy Spirit to draw the Buol people to Jesus. Pray
for the Holy Spirit to thrust out a national team that will
implement a church planting movement among this unreached people
group for God’s glory.-RA

You will eat grass like cattle--until you acknowledge that the
Most High is sovereign over the kingdoms of men and gives them to
anyone He wishes.
Daniel’s fourth chapter is a kind of celebrity tract in which the
most powerful king of his day tells how God broke his pride and
stubbornness, and how in simple childlike surrender, he came to
acknowledge the most High God as his Sovereign. Nebuchadnezzar
said, “I raised my eyes toward heaven, and my reason returned to
me and I blessed the Most High.” When we are tempted to believe
that any individual or any nation is beyond the saving power of
God, we should be reminded that the king’s heart is in the hands
of the Lord; He directs it like a watercourse wherever He pleases.
Pray that God will give us the faith to trust Him for miracles in
the hearts of men and nations.

Leonard Ravenhill summed it up...

self-righteous cannot pray!
Paulus commented: "Those three
principles apply to revival: We are so self-satisfied that
we don't want revival, so
self-sufficient that we think we don't need revival, and so
self-righteous that we can't have revival." (Ouch!)

God addressed Israel
in the following famous passage but the timeless principle is
apropos to believers in America ...
If I shut up the heavens so
that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the
land, or if I send pestilence among My people,
and My people who are called by My name humble themselves
and pray, and seek My face and turn from
their wicked ways,
then I will hear
from heaven, will forgive their sin, and will heal
their land. (2Chr 7:13, 14)
J. Barton Payne writes that
"This great verse, the best known in all Chronicles, expresses as
does no other in Scripture God’s requirement for national
blessing, whether in Solomon’s land, in Ezra’s, or in our own.
Those who believe must forsake their sins, turn from the life that
is centered in self, and yield to God’s word and will. Then, and
only then, will heaven send revival."
May God grant His children
grace to plead for a Spirit driven, God glorifying, Word centered,
Christ exalting revival of the Body of Christ in America.
First of all, then, I urge that
entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on
behalf of all men, for kings and all who are in authority, in
order that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness
and dignity. (1Ti 2:1,2)
Our Heavenly Father
desires to hear His children cry out with "fasting, sackcloth and
ashes" (Da 9:3), reflecting not the external appearance of our
bodies, but more accurately the internal condition of our hearts -
sinful (Da 9:5 - "we" not "they"!), rejecting His Holy Word
(Da 9:6-"we"), shameful (Da 9:8-"us"), contrite, and
broken (Ps 51:17), over our national rejection of God's righteous
and holy Name...
Daniel's prayer (Da 9:3,
4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19) is an
excellent "template" for all saints to emulate as we begin to
intercede with a sense of urgency for
America and especially for God's Name and reputation considering
that the world thinks of us as a "Christian nation" and we once
called ourselves "One Nation Under God"!
Matthew Henry's comments
on Lev 26:40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46 (directed first to Israel but
applicable to any nation that rejects Him)
Among the Israelites, persons
were not always prosperous or afflicted according to their
obedience or disobedience. But national prosperity was the
effect of national obedience, and national judgments
were brought on by national wickedness. Israel was under a

(Note: Henry's comments
were published in 1706 and national revival, the
First Great Awakening,
occurred in the 1730's and 1740's! Brethren, there is hope because
there is a "God of hope"! Ro 15:13)
