Old and New Testament.
Behold, the LORD'S hand is not so short that it
Neither is His ear so dull that it cannot hear.
the day I called Thou didst answer me; Thou didst make me bold with strength
in my soul.--While I was still speaking in prayer, then the man Gabriel,
whom I had seen in the vision previously, came to me in my extreme weariness
about the time of the evening offering.
Do not hide Thy face from me. Do not turn Thy servant away in anger. Thou
hast been my help. Do not abandon me nor forsake me, O God of my salvation
--O LORD, be not far off. O Thou my help, hasten to my assistance.
Ah Lord GOD! Behold, Thou hast made the heavens and the earth by Thy great
power and by Thine outstretched arm! Nothing is too difficult for Thee --Who
delivered us from so great a peril of death, and will deliver us, He on whom
we have set our hope. And He will yet deliver us--Shall not God bring about
justice for His elect, who cry to Him day and night, and will He delay long
over them? I tell you that He will bring about justice for them speedily.
However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth?

I glorified Thee on the earth
food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to accomplish His work.-- We
must work the works of Him who sent Me, as long as it is day; night is
coming, when no man can work.
you not know that I had to be in My Father's house? And they did not
understand the statement which He had made to them.--This sickness is not
unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God may be glorified
by it. Did I not say to you, if you believe, you will see the glory of God?
Jesus kept increasing in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.--Thou art
My beloved Son; in Whom I am well pleased.--all were speaking well of Him,
and wondering at the gracious words which were falling from His lips
Worthy art Thou...for Thou wast slain, and didst purchase for God with Thy
blood men from every tribe and tongue and people and nation. And Thou hast
made them to be a kingdom and priests to our God; and they will reign upon

"Thy Kingdom come."--
IN ONE of those sublime flights with
which the Epistles of St. Paul abound, he tells us that the time is coming
when the Son shall deriver up the Kingdom to God, even the Father, when He
shall abolish all rule, and authority, and power. From this we are at
liberty to infer that the Kingdom was originally the Father's; that by man's
sin and fall it has been alienated from His control.
The Lord Jesus became incarnate for
the purpose of regaining the Kingdom by His agony, blood, and tears; though
it is not as yet His, it is being acquired. When, therefore, we pray:
"Father, Thy Kingdom come," we are asking that the complete victory of Jesus
Christ may be hastened; that He may speedily triumph over all obstacles and
enemies; that truth may reign in government, art, and science; that trade
may be free from chicanery and fraud; that tyranny may be extinguished,
corruption exposed; that He may send forth His Angels to gather out of His
Kingdom all things that offend, and them that do iniquity, destroying that
last enemy, death, and bringing in the golden age when all men shall know
and love the Father, and become His obedient children.
There are many explanations of the
Kingdom of Heaven. Perhaps as a rough and ready way of interpreting the
phrase, we may say Divine Kingship. When we grasp that idea, it becomes the
dominant note of life. It is the master-key which opens every lock. Just to
believe, deep down in your soul, that the Father of Jesus---our Father--is
King. That the God who is moved by the fall of a little bird from its nest,
who is described in the parables of the lost sheep and the lost son, is King
of the world and all its forces, and of everything in human life. To know
and believe this is to get something which is worth everything else.
Will you not, here and now, place
yourself under the government of the King? Let Him govern your heart, that
you may love only within the limits which His pure and holy Spirit can
permit. Let Him govern your mind, that no unholy thought be allowed to lodge
and strike root within you. Let Him govern the books you read, the
companionships and friendships you form, the methods of your business, the
investment of your money, the way in which you spend your leisure--all must
be under the government of His Kingdom, for He will not be King at all
unless He is King in all.
Hasten, O God the coming of Thy
Kingdom, and the consummation of Thy redeeming work. May the Kingdom of
Christ come in us and through as; His voice speaking through our lips; His
power working through our touch; His love beating in our heart. AMEN.

VALLEY OF VISION
by C H Spurgeon
(Read C H Spurgeon's testimony
- It is miraculous as is EVERY testimony of the new birth)
rejoice over me, O my enemy. Though I fall I will rise; Though I dwell in
darkness, the LORD is a light for me." (Micah 7:8).
This may express the feelings of a man or woman downtrodden and oppressed.
Our enemy may put out our light for a season. There is sure hope for us in
the LORD; and if we are trusting in Him and holding fast our integrity,
our season of downcasting and darkness will soon be over. The insults of
the foe are only for a moment. The LORD will soon turn their laughter into
lamentation and our sighing into singing. What if the great enemy of souls
should for a while triumph over us, as he has triumphed over better men
than we are; yet let us take heart, for we shall overcome him before long.
We shall rise from our fall, for our God has not fallen, and He will lift
us up. We shall not abide in darkness, although for the moment we sit in
it; for our LORD is the fountain of light, and He will soon bring us a
joyful day. Let us not despair or even doubt. One turn of the wheel, and
the lowest will be at the top. Woe unto those who laugh now, for they
shall mourn and weep when their boasting is turned into everlasting
contempt. But blessed are all holy mourners, for they shall be divinely
(See Torrey's Topic "Afflictions
MORNING AND EVENING
"Shall a man make gods unto himself, and they are no
One great besetting sin of ancient Israel was idolatry, and the
spiritual Israel are vexed with a tendency to the same folly.
Remphan's star shines no longer, and the women weep no more for
Tammuz, but Mammon still intrudes his golden calf, and the shrines
of pride are not forsaken. Self in various forms struggles to
subdue the chosen ones under its dominion, and the flesh sets up
its altars wherever it can find space for them. Favourite children
are often the cause of much sin in believers; the Lord is grieved
when he sees us doting upon them above measure; they will live to
be as great a curse to us as Absalom was to David, or they will be
taken from us to leave our homes desolate. If Christians desire to
grow thorns to stuff their sleepless pillows, let them dote on
their dear ones.
It is truly said that "they are no gods," for the objects of our
foolish love are very doubtful blessings, the solace which they
yield us now is dangerous, and the help which they can give us in
the hour of trouble is little indeed. Why, then, are we so
bewitched with vanities? We pity the poor heathen who adore a god
of stone, and yet worship a god of gold. Where is the vast
superiority between a god of flesh and one of wood? The principle,
the sin, the folly is the same in either case, only that in ours
the crime is more aggravated because we have more light, and sin
in the face of it. The heathen bows to a false deity, but the true
God he has never known; we commit two evils, inasmuch as we
forsake the living God and turn unto idols. May the Lord purge us
all from this grievous iniquity!
"The dearest idol I have known,
Whate'er that idol be;
Help me to tear it from thy throne,
And worship only thee."
"Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible."
1 Peter 1:23
Peter most earnestly exhorted the scattered saints to love each
other "with a pure heart fervently" and he wisely fetched his
argument, not from the law, from nature, or from philosophy, but
from that high and divine nature which God hath implanted in his
people. Just as some judicious tutor of princes might labour to
beget and foster in them a kingly spirit and dignified behaviour,
finding arguments in their position and descent, so, looking upon
God's people as heirs of glory, princes of the blood royal,
descendants of the King of kings, earth's truest and oldest
aristocracy, Peter saith to them, "See that ye love one another,
because of your noble birth, being born of incorruptible seed;
because of your pedigree, being descended from God, the Creator of
all things; and because of your immortal destiny, for you shall
never pass away, though the glory of the flesh shall fade, and
even its existence shall cease." It would be well if, in the
spirit of humility, we recognized the true dignity of our
regenerated nature, and lived up to it. What is a Christian? If
you compare him with a king, he adds priestly sanctity to royal
dignity. The king's royalty often lieth only in his crown, but
with a Christian it is infused into his inmost nature. He is as
much above his fellows through his new birth, as a man is above
the beast that perisheth. Surely he ought to carry himself, in all
his dealings, as one who is not of the multitude, but chosen out
of the world, distinguished by sovereign grace, written among "the
peculiar people" and who therefore cannot grovel in the dust as
others, nor live after the manner of the world's citizens. Let the
dignity of your nature, and the brightness of your prospects, O
believers in Christ, constrain you to cleave unto holiness, and to
avoid the very appearance of evil.

A HEALTHY PALATE
“How sweet are Thy words unto my taste.”
Psalm 119:97, 98, 99, 100, 101, 102, 103, 104.
SOME people like one thing, and some another. Some people appreciate the
bitter olive; others feel it to be nauseous. Some delight in the sweetest
grapes; others feel the sweetness to be sickly. It is all a matter of
palate. Some people love the Word of the Lord; to others the reading of it
is a dreary task. To some the Bible is like a vineyard; to others it is
like a dry and tasteless meal. One takes the word of the Master, and it is
“as honey to the mouth”; to another the same word is as unwelcome as a
bitter drug. It is all a matter of palate.
But what is a man to do who has got a perverted palate, and who calls
sweet things bitter and bitter things sweet? He must get a new mouth! And
where is he to get it? Not by any ministry of his own creation; his own
endeavours will be impotent. A healthy moral palate depends upon the
purity of the heart. Our spiritual discernments are all determined by the
state of the soul. If the heart be pure, the mouth will be clean, and we
shall love God’s law. If the soul-appetite be healthy, God’s words will be
sweet unto our taste. And so does the good Lord give us new palates by
giving us new hearts. “Create within us clean hearts, O God, and renew
right spirits within us.”
"So Jacob was left alone, and a man wrestled with him until
daybreak." Genesis 32:24
We are all having our Jabboks continually. We are coming face to
face with wrestlers in the darkness. We go away from our
wrestling, too, many a time, carrying the marks of wounding; and
yet in the experience, we have gotten blessing.
That touch on the hollow of Jacob's thigh—was the touch that
withered the old boasted strength. You say Jacob was victorious.
Yes; but when? Not while he wrestled—but after his thigh was out
of joint and he could wrestle no more. He clasped his sinewy arms
about the neck of his antagonist, and clung, saying, "I will not
let you go—unless you bless me." That was the way he prevailed;
not in the old way of cunning—but by having the old man crippled,
defeated, and then by the new way of trust and clinging.

Missionary biography, Joy Ridderhof (Continued)
News of the recordings spread quickly, and missionaries from
several countries who spoke other languages began requesting
recordings in their own peoples’ languages. “I come from Tanzania
and speak Swahili,” wrote one. Another challenged her, “What about
India? I can speak Urdu. Please, will you make us some
Worldwide demand for her gospel recordings increased so much that
finally Joy prayed, “Lord I’ll make them in any language you want,
but you will have to pay the bills.” Joy never had cause to regret
the bargain she made with God that day. A small team of volunteers
helped Joy. There was no payday, and God had to meet all their
Joy knew what she needed to record in remote tribal situations,
but after World War II, very little was available. Portability was
crucial, but at that stage miniaturization of equipment was
virtually unknown, so they had to work with bulky machinery.
Herman Dyk came as an answer to prayer. Trained in electronics, he
and engineer Al Rethey, put together what has been claimed to be
the first-ever portable tape recorder. Joy was delighted! Joy and
her companions had been shown how to service them, but as her
co-worker Sanna Barlow remarked with a twinkle in her eye, “When
we’ve done our best, and they still sometimes won’t work, we slap
them and start rejoicing. Somehow the Lord gets them going.”

Bryon Paulus, director
of Life Action Ministries, has said our greatest obstacle for
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)
God grant that we may, in this
consider the things which belong to our eternal peace.
