Old and New Testament.
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.
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.

THE FORTRESS OF THE HEART
"Keep thy heart with all diligence."--
"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."
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.

VALLEY OF VISION
by C H Spurgeon
(Read C H Spurgeon's testimony
- It is miraculous as is EVERY testimony of the new birth)
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.
MORNING AND EVENING
"Thou hatest wickedness."
"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
"Cursed be the man before the Lord, that riseth up and buildeth
this city Jericho."
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
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

Sindhi People in Los Angeles
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.

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

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

(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)
