October 21, Evening
We of His fulness we have
all received, and grace upon grace.
THIS is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.--See how great a love the
Father has bestowed upon us, that we should be called children of God
His Son, whom he appointed heir of all
things.--If children, heirs also, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ,
if indeed we suffer with Him in order that we may also be glorified with
I and the Father are one.--The Father is in
me, and I in the Father --My Father and your Father, and My God and your God
--I in them and Thou in Me, that they may be perfected in unity,
The church which is His body, the fulness of
Him who fills all in all.
Having these promises, beloved, let us
cleanse ourselves from all defilement of flesh and spirit, perfecting
holiness in the fear of God.

them; and those who have authority over them are called Benefactors. But not
so with you, but let him who is the greatest among you become as the
youngest, and the leader as the servant. For who is greater, the one who
reclines at the table, or the one who serves? Is it not the one who reclines
at the table? But I am among you as the one who serves.--Even as the Son of

A NEW CREATION
"Wherefore if any man is in Christ,
there is a new creation: the old things are passed away; behold, they are
become new." 2Co 5:17(R.V. marg.).
TRUE CHRISTIANITY is very different
from much that we see around us, and which is known as such, and is summed
up in orthodoxy of creed, in religious service, in gifts and deeds which
cost little or nothing. If Christianity is anything, it is self-giving,
even to death. If Christianity means anything we must renounce self as the
centre of our life and be willing to sacrifice ourselves for others.
Nothing will save the world, which is cursed with the spirit of
selfishness, but the repetition and filling-up as far as possible of
Christ's sacrifice by those who profess to be His servants and followers.
Selfishness is destructive, but the love that gives itself even to blood
and tears is constructive.
But we must be sure that the supreme
thought of every word and act must be Christ who died and rose again (2Co5:14,15).
Let us not live only for humanity, but for the Son of Man, and as we live
for Him the bitter will be sweet and the rough smooth, and we shall find
ourselves living for the whole race of men for whom He died.
When this becomes the law of life,
we are necessarily a new creation; we live under a new heaven, and walk
over a new earth. There is a new aspect upon the most familiar objects of
our environment. It is not that they have altered, but that we are changed
from self to the spiritual; from the old life of sin to the new life of
which the centre is the glorified Saviour. In his book "Grace Abounding,"
Bunyan gives expression to this thought of the wonderful change that
passes over the face of creation, and the aspect of human life, so soon as
the heart is full of the love of God.
Let us notice the emphasis of
God was in Christ when He bore the burden of the world's sin upon the
Cross and that we have been brought to know and love Him as of His grace.
It is God also who has given us the right to carry the message of mercy
and forgiveness to all within our reach. "He hath given to us," that is,
to you and me, "the ministry of reconciliation." It is for us to go forth
into the world, our hearts filled with Christ's love, telling men and
women that this is a redeemed world, and that God is waiting for them to
accept His love and mercy. This is the message of Christianity.
O Lord, forgive what I have been;
sanctify what I am; and order what I shall be. AMEN.

God's Multiplication Table
"A little one shall become a thousand, and a small one a strong nation: I
the LORD will hasten it in his time" (Isaiah 60:22).
Works for the LORD often begin on a small scale, and they are none the
worse for this. Feebleness educates faith, brings God near, and wins glory
for His name. Prize promises of increase! Mustard seed is the smallest
among seeds, and yet it becomes a treelike plant, with branches which
lodge the birds of heaven. We may begin with one, and that "a little one,"
and yet it will "become a thousand." The LORD is great at the
multiplication table. How often did He say to His lone servant, "I will
multiply thee!" Trust in the LORD, ye ones and twos; for He will be in the
midst of you if you are gathered in His name. "A small one." What can be
more despicable in the eyes of those who count heads and weigh forces! Yet
this is the nucleus of a great nation. Only one star shines out at first
in the evening, but soon the sky is crowded with countless lights. Nor
need we think the prospect of increase to be remote, for the promise is,
"I Jehovah will hasten it in his time." There will be no premature haste,
like that which we see at excited meetings; it will be all in due time,
but yet there will be no delay. When the LORD hastens, His speed is
MORNING AND EVENING
Morning, October 21
The love of Christ constraineth us.”
2 Corinthians 5:14
How much owest thou unto my Lord? Has he ever done anything for
thee? Has he forgiven thy sins? Has he covered thee with a robe of
righteousness? Has he set thy feet upon a rock? Has he established
thy goings? Has he prepared heaven for thee? Has he prepared thee
for heaven? Has he written thy name in his book of life? Has he
given thee countless blessings? Has he laid up for thee a store of
mercies, which eye hath not seen nor ear heard? Then do something
for Jesus worthy of his love. Give not a mere wordy offering to a
dying Redeemer. How will you feel when your Master comes, if you
have to confess that you did nothing for him, but kept your love
shut up, like a stagnant pool, neither flowing forth to his poor or
to his work. Out on such love as that! What do men think of a love
which never shows itself in action? Why, they say, “Open rebuke is
better than secret love.” Who will accept a love so weak that it
does not actuate you to a single deed of self-denial, of generosity,
of heroism, or zeal! Think how he has loved you, and given himself
for you! Do you know the power of that love? Then let it be like a
rushing mighty wind to your soul to sweep out the clouds of your
worldliness, and clear away the mists of sin. “For Christ’s sake” be
this the tongue of fire that shall sit upon you: “for Christ’s sake”
be this the divine rapture, the heavenly afflatus to bear you aloft
from earth, the divine spirit that shall make you bold as lions and
swift as eagles in your Lord’s service. Love should give wings to
the feet of service, and strength to the arms of labour. Fixed on
God with a constancy that is not to be shaken, resolute to honour
him with a determination that is not to be turned aside, and
pressing on with an ardour never to be wearied, let us manifest the
constraints of love to Jesus. May the divine lodestone draw us
heavenward towards itself.
Evening, October 21
“Why are ye troubled? and why do
thoughts arise in your hearts?”
“Why sayest thou, O Jacob, and speakest O Israel, my way is hid from
the Lord, and my judgment is passed over from my God?” The Lord
cares for all things, and the meanest creatures share in his
universal providence, but his particular providence is over his
saints. “The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear
him.” “Precious shall their blood be in his sight.” “Precious in the
sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.” “We know that all
things work together for good to them that love God, to them that
are the called according to his purpose.” Let the fact that, while
he is the Saviour of all men, he is specially the Saviour of them
that believe, cheer and comfort you. You are his peculiar care; his
regal treasure which he guards as the apple of his eye; his vineyard
over which he watches day and night. “The very hairs of your head
are all numbered.” Let the thought of his special love to you be a
spiritual pain-killer, a dear quietus to your woe: “I will never
leave thee, nor forsakethee.” God says that as much to you as to any
saint of old. “Fear not, I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great
reward.” We lose much consolation by the habit of reading his
promises for the whole church, instead of taking them directly home
to ourselves. Believer, grasp the divine word with a personal,
appropriating faith. Think that you hear Jesus say, “I have prayed
for thee that thy faith fail not.” Think you see him walking on the
waters of thy trouble, for he is there, and he is saying, “Fear not,
it is I; be not afraid.” Oh, those sweet words of Christ! May the
Holy Ghost make you feel them as spoken to you; forget others for
awhile—accept the voice of Jesus as addressed to you, and say,
“Jesus whispers consolation; I cannot refuse it; I will sit under
his shadow with great delight.”
THE CONTRITE HEART
Isaiah 57:13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21.
LET us look at this description of the dwelling-place of the Eternal God.
“I dwell with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit.”
And who are the contrite? In the original word there is the significance
of pieces of rock or lumps of soil having been crumbled into the finest
powder. Have I not sometimes heard the phrase—“He’s just a lump of pride”?
Well, that pride has to be broken down into the finest powder, until not a
bit of stubborn self-conceit remains. And then the contrite become the
humble! Our gracious Lord has sometimes to use heavy hammers in the
destruction of this hard and stony pride: the shock of calamity, the
battering of disappointment and defeat! Our pride must be ground to
powder. Then He will come in and dwell with us!
And what then? He will “revive the spirit of the humble, and revive the
heart of the contrite ones.” Our broken pride shall be as broken soil in
which our Lord will grow the flowers and fruits of the Spirit. The death
of pride shall be followed by a revival of all things sweet and beautiful.
When pride is laid low, it is a “day of resurrection.” The wilderness
shall “blossom as the rose.”
"Year Book" 1895
"Let another praise you—and not your own mouth; someone else—and
not your own lips." Proverbs 27:2
We would better not talk about ourselves. People do not want to
hear about you—from your own lips. Even though your good deeds,
your greatness, or your fine attainments do not become known—what
does it matter? God knows about them—and that is enough!
One says wisely, "Think as little as possible about any good in
yourself; turn your eyes resolutely from any view of your
acquirements, your influence, your plans, your success; above all,
speak as little as possible about yourself. The inordinateness of
our self-love makes speech about ourselves, very foolish. Nothing
but duty should open our lips upon this dangerous theme, except it
be in humble confession of our sinfulness before God."

Do you get enough fruits and vegetables in your diet? That is
where most of your nutrients come from. If you lived in India,
there is a good chance that you would be buying your produce from
members of the Rayeen community.
The Rayeens live mainly in the state of Bihar, though they also
live in other states in north India. Thirty-one thousand of them
live in Pakistan. They work as transporters of produce from the
farms to the marketplace. In order to be sure they can make a
profit selling the produce, they must negotiate prices with the
farmers. Their produce must be fresh or people won’t want to buy
it. Imagine how terrible it would be to arrive at the marketplace
with shriveled produce on a hot day!
But spoiled produce is only one of the problems that the Rayeen
people face. They are Muslims, and almost none of them have even
heard that Jesus Christ came to save sinners. One Christian web
site pointed out that they have not rejected the gospel of Christ;
they simply have not had a chance to hear it and respond. Even if
that opportunity comes, only God can prepare hearts to receive a
message that contradicts what their people have believed for
hundreds of years.

Like it or not, mankind is dependent on God for daily bread. How
do we handle this situation? Some people resent the fact that they
are not independent of the One who gives life. Others might ignore
Him and fool themselves into thinking they can make it without
Him. Still others are grateful for the produce that God has given

Bryon Paulus, director

revival is failure to pray, to plead, to intercede, to cry out.
Leonard Ravenhill summed it up...
doesn't need to pray. The self-sufficient doesn't want to
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
National wickedness will end
in the ruin of any people,
especially where the Word of God and the light of the Gospel are
Sooner or later, sin will be
the ruin, as well as the reproach, of every people.
Oh that, being humbled for
we might avert the rising storm before it bursts upon us!
(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)

consider the things which belong to our eternal peace.
