May 29, Evening

The life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you on the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood by reason of the life that makes atonement.


BEHOLD the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!--The blood of the Lamb.-- Precious blood, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ.--Without shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.--The blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.

      Through His own blood, He entered the holy place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption.--Since therefore, brethren, we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He inaugurated for us through the veil, that is, His flesh, let us draw near with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith

      You have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body.

Lev. 17.11. John 1.29.--Re. 7.14.--
1Pe. 1.19.--He. 9.22.--1John 1.7.
He. 9.12.--He. 10.19, 20, 22. 1Co. 6.20.

Oh, that I had wings like a dove!
I would fly away and be at rest.

 

IT came about when the sun came up that God appointed a scorching east wind, and the sun beat down on Jonah's head so that he became faint and begged with all his soul to die, saying, Death is better to me than life

      Job said why is light given to him who suffers, and life to the bitter of soul, who long for death, but there is none, and dig for it more than for hidden treasures-- Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD delivers him out of them all.

      Now My soul has become troubled and what shall I say, Father, save Me from this hour-- He might become a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. For since He Himself was tempted in that which He has suffered, He is able to come to the aid of those who are tempted.

OUR
DAILY WALK

by F. B. Meyer

May 29

THE FORTRESS OF THE HEART

"Keep thy heart with all diligence."-- Pro 4:23.

"The peace of God shall keep your hearts."-- Phi 4:7.

IN MOST of the old castles there is an inner keep, which is protected, not only by mighty walls and bastions, but by the portcullis at the gate, and sentries at every approach, who challenged every one that passed in and out. So the heart is continually approached by good and evil, by the frivolities and vanities of the world and the insidious suggestions of the flesh. It is like an inn or hostelry, with constant arrivals and departures. Passengers throng in and out, some of them with evil intent, hoping to find conspirators, or to light fires that will spread until the whole being is swept with passion, consuming in an hour the fabric of years to ashes.

We need, therefore, to be constantly on the watch; we must keep our heart above all else that we guard, for out of it are the issues of life (R.V. marg.). Our Lord says that "out of the heart of man come forth evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, thefts," etc. The devil and the world without would be less to be feared, if there were not such strong tendencies to evil within--many of them inherited from long lines of ancestors, who, alas! pass down to us the worst features of their characters equally with the best.

Keep it Clean. Just as the eye of the body is perpetually washed with tear-water, so let us ask that the precious blood of Christ may cleanse away any speck of impurity. Remember how delicate a thing the heart is, and how susceptible to the dust of an evil thought, which would instantly prevent it becoming the organ of spiritual vision. Sursum Corda! Lift up your hearts! We lift them up unto the Lord!

The Sentinel of Peace. Then the Peace of God will become the warden or sentry of the heart, and it passeth understanding! We can understand the apparent peace of some men. They have made money, and their gold-bags are piled around them as a fortress; they have rich and influential friends, within whose protection they imagine they will be sheltered and defended; they enjoy good health, and are held in high esteem. We can understand such peace, though it often proves ephemeral! But there is a peace that passeth understanding! It is to this that our Lord refers when He says, "My Peace I give unto you; not as the world giveth." "Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."

PRAYER

Keep me, Heavenly Father, as the apple of Thine eye; defend me by Thine Almighty power; hide me from this strife of tongues and the fiery darts of the wicked one. May my heart be as the palace which the Stronger than the strong man keeps in perfect peace. AMEN.

Fishers Follow Him

"And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after Me, and I will make you to become fishers of men"   (Mark 1:17).

Only by coming after Jesus can we obtain our heart's desire and be really useful to our fellow men. Oh, how we long to be successful fishers for Jesus! We would sacrifice our lives to win souls. But we are tempted to try methods which Jesus would never have tried. Shall we yield to this suggestion of the enemy? If so, we may splash the water, but we shall never take the fish. We must follow after Jesus if we would succeed. Sensational methods, entertainment, and so forth -- are these coming after Jesus? Can we imagine the LORD Jesus drawing a congregation by such means as are now commonly used? What is the result of such expedients? The result is nothing which Jesus will count up at the last great day. We must keep to our preaching as our Master did, for by this means souls are saved. We must preach our LORD's doctrine and proclaim a full and free gospel, for this is the net in which souls are taken, We must preach with His gentleness, boldness, and love, for this is the secret of success with human hearts. We must work under divine anointing, depending upon the sacred Spirit. Thus, coming after Jesus, and not running before Him, not aside from Him, we shall be fishers of men.

SPURGEON'S
MORNING AND EVENING

May 29
Morning
"Thou hatest wickedness."
Psalm 45:7

"Be ye angry, and sin not." There can hardly be goodness in a man if he be not angry at sin; he who loves truth must hate every false way. How our Lord Jesus hated it when the temptation came! Thrice it assailed him in different forms, but ever he met it with, "Get thee behind me, Satan." He hated it in others; none the less fervently because he showed his hate oftener in tears of pity than in words of rebuke; yet what language could be more stern, more Elijah-like, than the words, "Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayer." He hated wickedness, so much that he bled to wound it to the heart; he died that it might die; he was buried that he might bury it in his tomb; and he rose that he might forever trample it beneath his feet. Christ is in the Gospel, and that Gospel is opposed to wickedness in every shape. Wickedness arrays itself in fair garments, and imitates the language of holiness; but the precepts of Jesus, like his famous scourge of small cords, chase it out of the temple, and will not tolerate it in the Church. So, too, in the heart where Jesus reigns, what war there is between Christ and Belial! And when our Redeemer shall come to be our Judge, those thundering words, "Depart, ye cursed" which are, indeed, but a prolongation of his life-teaching concerning sin, shall manifest his abhorrence of iniquity. As warm as is his love to sinners, so hot is his hatred of sin; as perfect as is his righteousness, so complete shall be the destruction of every form of wickedness. O thou glorious champion of right, and destroyer of wrong, for this cause hath God, even thy God, anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

Evening
"Cursed be the man before the Lord, that riseth up and buildeth this city Jericho."
Joshua 6:26

Since he was cursed who rebuilt Jericho, much more the man who labours to restore Popery among us. In our fathers' days the gigantic walls of Popery fell by the power of their faith, the perseverance of their efforts, and the blast of their gospel trumpets; and now there are some who would rebuild that accursed system upon its old foundation. O Lord, be pleased to thwart their unrighteous endeavours, and pull down every stone which they build. It should be a serious business with us to be thoroughly purged of every error which may have a tendency to foster the spirit of Popery, and when we have made a clean sweep at home we should seek in every way to oppose its all too rapid spread abroad in the church and in the world. This last can be done in secret by fervent prayer, and in public by decided testimony. We must warn with judicious boldness those who are inclined towards the errors of Rome; we must instruct the young in gospel truth, and tell them of the black doings of Popery in the olden times. We must aid in spreading the light more thoroughly through the land, for priests, like owls, hate daylight. Are we doing all we can for Jesus and the gospel? If not, our negligence plays into the hands of the priestcraft. What are we doing to spread the Bible, which is the Pope's bane and poison? Are we casting abroad good, sound gospel writings? Luther once said, "The devil hates goose quills" and, doubtless, he has good reason, for ready writers, by the Holy Spirit's blessing, have done his kingdom much damage. If the thousands who will read this short word this night will do all they can to hinder the rebuilding of this accursed Jericho, the Lord's glory shall speed among the sons of men. Reader, what can you do? What will you do?

MANY GIFTS—ONE SPIRIT

1Corinthians 12:1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13.

HERE is no monotony in the workmanship of my God. The multitude of His thoughts is like the sound of the sea, and every thought commands a new creation. When He thinks upon me, the result is a creative touch never again to be repeated on land or sea. And so, when the Holy Spirit is given to the people, the ministry does not work in the suppression of individualities, but rather in their refinement and enrichment.

Our gifts will be manifold, and we must not allow the difference to breed a spirit of suspicion. Because my brother’s gift is not mine I must not suspect his calling. To one man is given a trumpet, to another a lamp, and to another a spade. And they are all the holy gifts of grace.

And thus the gifts are manifold in order that every man may find his completeness in his brother. One man is like an eye—he is a seer of visions! Another man is like a hand—he has the genius of practicality! He is “a handy man”! One is the architect, the other is the builder. And each requires the other, if either is to be perfected. And so, by God’s gracious Spirit, the individual man is only a bit, a portion, and he is intended to fit into the other bits, and so make the complete man of the race.
 

J R Miller's
Year Book

May 29.

The LORD said to Samuel, "Fill your horn with oil and be on your way; I am sending you to Jesse of Bethlehem. I have chosen one of his sons to be king." 1 Samuel 16:1

The Lord is never at loss for a man. When one fails—he has another ready. His plans and purposes go on—in spite of human failure, and through all seeming disaster.

Here was a boy, keeping the sheep in the fields, probably not dreaming of greatness, and yet God had him marked out to be king! The boys do hot know what God has in mind for them. They may be sure, however, that for every one of them—God has some plan. It may be a great place or a small one, as the world rates greatness or smallness; but every boy should feel that to be just what God made him to be—is the grandest, noblest, best thing possible for him. If God made him to be a carpenter, and by his own restless strivings he gets to be a member of Congress or Parliament, or President of the United States, his place is not half so high and great in the angels' sight—as if he had been the carpenter he was meant to be.

The greatest place anyone can attain—is the place God intended him to fill. How can we know what God wants us to do and to be? By doing his will, day by day, with quiet fidelity, wherever we find ourselves. God's will for each day—is God's plan for us for that day. Thus God will lead us continually to that which he has for us to do. Failure in the lowlier duties—will hinder our promotion to the higher.

May 29 - Sindhi People in Los Angeles
by PD

Hana’s golden bracelets jangled as she gently kneaded chickpea flour with cilantro, chilies, yogurt, and oil in her Los Angeles home. She was making her family’s favored thick dumplings and enjoying the company of her niece, Neda, who suddenly thought about something she was reading that made her wash the flour off her hands and face Hana.
“Auntie, I’m reading a great book; the title is, I Am a Sindhi: The Glorious Sindhi Heritage & The Culture and Folklore of Sindhi. Neda read her aunt a review of the book. “Sindhi diaspora is a unique example of a community that was driven away from its native land, became refugees in their own country (India), and rose like a Phoenix from the smoldering ashes of Partition (Pakistan/India), to become one of the most successful people in the world. It traces its history, which began on the banks of the sacred Sindhu River of India to the present. The author tells about the faiths of the Sindhi people, their romantic legends, immortal poets, unique spirit, and culture.”
In 1947 Muslim Pakistan broke away from primarily Hindu India. Having both Hindu and Muslim populations, Sindhis were caught in the middle of a violent, struggling society. A large numbers of Hindu Sindhis fled to India or to the West. There are over 30,000 Sindhis in Los Angeles. Most of them are Hindu and few are Muslim.

Pray that believers in Los Angeles will extend friendship to the Sindhis and introduce them to the joy of knowing Jesus.

CODE RED:
PRAY FOR REVIVAL

Restore us, O God of our salvation, and cause Your indignation toward us to cease. Will You be angry with us forever? Will You prolong Your anger to all generations? Will You not Yourself revive us again, that Your people may rejoice in You? Show us Your lovingkindness, O LORD, and grant us Your salvation. (Psalm 85:4-7)

O God, restore us And cause Your face to shine upon us, and we will be saved. O LORD God of hosts, How long will You be angry with the prayer of Your people? (Psalm 80:3-4)

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...

The self-satisfied doesn't need to pray. The self-sufficient doesn't want to pray. The 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!)

Consider joining with other believers at One Cry - A Nationwide Call for Spiritual Awakening (Dearly beloved of God, watch the Video and join Cry Out!)

May God Grant Us Grace|
To
Intercede For America
While we still have time!

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 peculiar covenant.

National wickedness will end in the ruin of any people,
especially where the Word of God and the light of the Gospel are enjoyed.

Sooner or later, sin will be the ruin, as well as the reproach, of every people.

Oh that, being humbled for our sins,
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 our day,
consider the things which belong to our eternal peace.

Righteousness exalts a nation,
But sin is a disgrace to any people.
Proverbs 14:34

My (Our) soul cleaves to the dust;
Revive me (us) according to Thy word.
Psalm 119:25
