stretched out His hand and took hold of him, and said to him, O you of

LORD and He delights in his way. When he falls, he shall not be hurled
headlong; because the LORD is the One who holds his hand.
The beloved of the LORD dwell in security by Him, Who shields him all the

Him, because He cares for you.-- He who touches you, touches the apple of

THE DAYS OF

things not seen as yet, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the

WE DO well to give heed to the description given of
the "days of Noah, for our Lord said, that as it was in those days, so shall
it be in the days that close the present age (Mat 24:37-39).
The world of that time had made great progress in the arts and civilization
of life. But, as it has happened repeatedly all through human history, great
luxury produced infamous immorality, cruelty, and widespread indifference to
the claims of God. Things took place in those olden times which have their
counterpart in the great cities of our time. In its feverish atmosphere sin
of every kind abounded, and in mercy to the race, there was no alternative
than to bring that wicked generation to an end. "They ate, they drank; they
married, and were given in marriage, and knew not, till the flood came and
carried them all away."
Amidst all this, Noah lived an
unblemished and righteous life. He walked in daily converse with God (Gen 6:8-9).
His Almighty Friend was able to reveal to him His intentions. "The secret of
the Lord is with them that fear Him, and He will show them His covenant."
Keep near to God, that you may hear
the accents of His still small voice. Our happiest experience is when we
walk with Him in unbroken fellowship, and He takes us into covenant with
Himself. Through any one individual, whose heart is perfect toward Him, God
will save others. We too shall cross the Flood of Death and enter the new
life of Resurrection, but we must be quick to detect His voice, and our
hands deft to fulfil the revelations of our Divine Teacher and Friend.
Lead me, O Lord, in a straight way
unto Thyself, and keep me in Thy grace unto the end. AMEN.

by C H Spurgeon
(Read C H Spurgeon's testimony
- It is miraculous as is EVERY testimony of the new birth)
"It shall not seem hard to you when you
set him free, for he has given you six years with double the service of a
hired man; so the LORD your God will bless you in whatever * you do."
An Israelitish master was to give his bondservant liberty in due time, and
when he left his service he was to start him in life with a liberal
portion, This was to be done heartily and cheerfully, and then the LORD
promised to bless the generous act. The spirit of this precept, and,
indeed, the whole law of Christ, binds us to treat people well. We ought
to remember how the LORD has dealt with us, and that this renders it
absolutely needful that we should deal graciously with others, It becomes
those to be generous who are the children of a gracious God. How can we
expect our great Master to bless us in our business if we oppress those
who serve us? What a benediction is here set before the liberal mind! To
be blessed in all that we do is to be blessed indeed. The LORD will send
us this partly in prosperity, partly in content of mind, and partly in a
sense of His favor, which is the best of all blessings. He can make us
feel that we are under His special care and are surrounded by His peculiar
love. This makes this earthly life a joyous prelude to the life to come.
God's blessing is more than a fortune. It maketh rich and addeth no sorrow
(See Torrey's Topic "Masters")
MORNING AND EVENING
Morning, April 26
It seems then, that Christians may forget Christ! There could
be no need for this loving exhortation, if there were not a
fearful supposition that our memories might prove treacherous. Nor
is this a bare supposition: it is, alas! too well confirmed in our
experience, not as a possibility, but as a lamentable fact. It
appears almost impossible that those who have been redeemed by the
blood of the dying Lamb, and loved with an everlasting love by the
eternal Son of God, should forget that gracious Saviour; but, if
startling to the ear, it is, alas! too apparent to the eye to
allow us to deny the crime. Forget him who never forgot us! Forget
him who poured his blood forth for our sins! Forget him who loved
us even to the death! Can it be possible? Yes, it is not only
possible, but conscience confesses that it is too sadly a fault
with all of us, that we suffer him to be as a wayfaring man
tarrying but for a night. He whom we should make the abiding
tenant of our memories is but a visitor therein. The cross where
one would think that memory would linger, and unmindfulness would
be an unknown intruder, is desecrated by the feet of
forgetfulness. Does not your conscience say that this is true? Do
you not find yourselves forgetful of Jesus? Some creature steals
away your heart, and you are unmindful of him upon whom your
affection ought to be set. Some earthly business engrosses your
attention when you should fix your eye steadily upon the cross. It
is the incessant turmoil of the world, the constant attraction of
earthly things which takes away the soul from Christ. While memory
too well preserves a poisonous weed, it suffereth the rose of
Sharon to wither. Let us charge ourselves to bind a heavenly
forget-me-not about our hearts for Jesus our Beloved, and,
whatever else we let slip, let us hold fast to him.
Evening, April 26
“Blessed is he that watcheth.”
“We die daily,” said the apostle. This was the life of the early
Christians; they went everywhere with their lives in their hands.
We are not in this day called to pass through the same fearful
persecutions: if we were, the Lord would give us grace to bear the
test; but the tests of Christian life, at the present moment,
though outwardly not so terrible, are yet more likely to overcome
us than even those of the fiery age. We have to bear the sneer of
the world—that is little; its blandishments, its soft words, its
oily speeches, its fawning, its hypocrisy, are far worse. Our
danger is lest we grow rich and become proud, lest we give
ourselves up to the fashions of this present evil world, and lose
our faith. Or if wealth be not the trial, worldly care is quite as
mischievous. If we cannot be torn in pieces by the roaring lion,
if we may be hugged to death by the bear, the devil little cares
which it is, so long as he destroys our love to Christ, and our
confidence in him. I fear me that the Christian church is far more
likely to lose her integrity in these soft and silken days than in
those rougher times. We must be awake now, for we traverse the
enchanted ground, and are most likely to fall asleep to our own
undoing, unless our faith in Jesus be a reality, and our love to
Jesus a vehement flame. Many in these days of easy profession are
likely to prove tares, and not wheat; hypocrites with fair masks
on their faces, but not the true-born children of the living God.
Christian, do not think that these are times in which you can
dispense with watchfulness or with holy ardour; you need these
things more than ever, and may God the eternal Spirit display his
omnipotence in you, that you may be able to say, in all these
softer things, as well as in the rougher, “We are more than
conquerors through him that loved us.”

GOLIATH VERSUS GOD!
1Samuel 17:1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11.
GOLIATH seemed to have everything on his side except God. And the things
in which he boasted were just the things in which men are prone to boast
He had physical strength. “His height was six cubits and a span.”
Athletics had done all they could for him, and he was a fine type of
He had splendid military equipment. “A helmet of brass,” and “a coat of
mail,” and “a spear like a weaver’s beam!” Surely, if fine material
equipment determines combats, the shepherd-lad from the hills of Bethlehem
will be annihilated.
And he enjoyed the enthusiastic confidence of the Philistines. He was his
nation’s pride and glory! He strode out amid their shouts, and the cheers
were like iron in his blood.
But all this counted for nothing, because God was against him. Men and
nations may attain to a fine animalism, their warlike equipment may
satisfy the most exacting standard, and yet, with God against them, they
shall be as structures woven out of mists, and they shall collapse at the
touch of apparent weakness. The issue was not Goliath versus David, but
Goliath versus God!
"Year Book" 1895
"Throughout the night the cloud brought darkness to the one
side—and light to the other side." Exodus 14:20
God appears different to his friends and to his enemies. To his
own people he is light, comfort, joy, protection, and gladness;
but to those who reject him—he is darkness, dreadful terror, and
stern judgment. The thought of God's presence, fills the Christian
with confidence and peace, with the warmth of love; but the same
thought makes the unreconciled sinner tremble! "I thought upon
God, and was troubled."
The providence of God, too, has this same double aspect. The
Christian sees God's love everywhere. He sees his Father's hand
ordering all things with loving wisdom. When he cannot understand,
he can trust and wait in confidence. But to the unreconciled man,
the same providence is a dark mystery, full of dread and alarm. He
has no sense of safety anywhere he may go. There is no assurance
of protection, no consciousness of God's love, anywhere in the
universe for him.
Death to the ungodly is a heavy cloud, charged with lightnings and
thunders; but to the Christian it is a glorious blaze of divine
love pouring brightness and peace all about his bed.
It will be the same on the day of judgment. To his own people,
Christ on his throne will be all glorious, and his appearance will
give unspeakable joy; but to the ungodly, his presence will be an
appearance of the most appalling terror!

- Chitrali People in Manchester
(This article is intended to illustrate the attitudes and beliefs
of the people group.)
Ahmed stirred half and half into his coffee at a Starbucks in
Manchester, hoping that the music would drown out the private
conversation he was having with his new British friend, Mick.
Mick asked him a blunt question. “What brought you here to
Manchester? Wasn’t life better in northern Pakistan with the rest
of your family?” Ahmed almost spit out his coffee when he heard
that. He responded, “I am from the Chitrali people, and one thing
we want is law and order. All there is in northern Pakistan is
bloodshed. I couldn’t wait to leave. You don’t know how lucky you
are to live in England. You can even go to any place of worship
without someone trying to kill you for it.” Ahmed looked around
the room for anyone that looked like they might be Muslim before
he continued. Leaning forward, he said, “I heard about Jesus, and
I knew He had the answers. If I didn’t keep this from my family,
they would have killed me faster than the Taliban. So I had to
leave.” Mick did not know what to say. A Pakistani who follows
Jesus rather than the Islamic religion?

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

were published in 1706 and national revival, the

occurred in the 1730's and 1740's! Brethren, there is hope because
there is a "God of hope"! Ro 15:13)
