is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He has sent.
Even so faith, if it has no works, is dead, being by itself --Faith
working through love -- The one who sows to his own flesh shall
from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit
shall from the Spirit reap eternal life --We are His workmanship,
created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared
beforehand, that we should walk in them --Who gave Himself for us,
that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for
Himself a people for His own possession, zealous for good deeds.
We ought always to give thanks to God for you,
brethren, as is only fitting, because your faith is greatly
enlarged, and the love of each one of you toward one another grows
ever greater. To this end also we pray for you always that our God
may count you worthy of your calling, and fulfill every desire for
goodness and the work of faith with power -- It is God who is at
work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure.

the promise of His coming?
in the seventh generation from Adam, prophesied, saying, Behold,
the Lord came with many thousands of His holy ones, to execute
judgment upon all -- BEHOLD, HE IS COMING WITH THE CLOUDS, and
every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him; and all the
tribes of the earth will mourn over Him.
The Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a
shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet of
God; and the dead in Christ shall rise first. Then we who are
alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the
clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and thus we shall always be
with the Lord.
The grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation
to all men, instructing us to deny ungodliness and worldly desires
and to live sensibly, righteously and godly in the present age,
looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our
great God and Savior, Christ Jesus

PRAISING THE LORD
"Praise ye the Lord; for it
is good to sing praises unto our God."-- Psa 147:1.
IT IS a comely and befitting
thing for us to blend praise and prayer.
There is a difference
between praise and thanksgiving. We thank God for what He has done
for us; we praise Him for what He is in Himself. In praise we come
nearest to the worship of Heaven, where the Angels and the
Redeemed find the loftiest exercise of their faculties in
ascribing praise, and honour, and glory to God. In my private
devotions, I find nothing more helpful than to recite the Te Deum
before asking for any gift at the hand of God. It seems to put God
in His right place, and to bow the soul before Him in the attitude
of adoration and praise. "It is good to sing praises, and praise
Let us praise His
condescending love (Psa 147:1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6). He counts the number of
the stars as a shepherd tells his sheep. The Psalmist likens the
constellations to a flock of sheep, which their shepherd is
driving through space. What a sublime conception of suns, planets,
and asteroids! Yet this wonderful and infinite God can bend over
our little lives, and take special notice of the outcasts, the
broken-hearted, the sorely wounded, and the meek. None are too
small and insignificant for His notice. Just as a mother is most
careful and thoughtful for the smallest and most ailing child in
her family, so God's tenderest, strongest, and most efficient help
is displayed towards the neediest and most helpless of His
children. He always seeks the lost sheep and the prodigal child.
Let us praise God's work in
providence. Notice the present tenses in this Psalm. The Psalmist
felt that God was always working in nature, and that everything
was due to the direct action of His Providence. And Jesus
confirmed this when He said that no sparrow fell to the ground
without the Father's notice. The pure in heart, the child-like,
and the meek have this prerogative of seeing God's hand in all
things. God is; God is everywhere active and energetic; and
therefore there is no point of space, and no moment of time, in
which He does not operate. "Let us offer the sacrifice of praise
to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks
to His Name" (Heb 13:15).
We beseech Thee, give us
that due sense of all Thy mercies, that our hearts may be
unfeignedly thankful, and that we shew forth Thy praise, not only
with our lips, but in our lives; by giving up ourselves to Thy
service, and by walking before Thee in holiness and righteousness
all our days: through Jesus Christ our Lord. AMEN.

by C H Spurgeon
(Read C H Spurgeon's testimony
- It is miraculous as is EVERY testimony of the new birth)
"God is our
refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble" (Psalm 46:1).
A help that is not present when we need it is of small value. The anchor
which is left at home is of no use to the seaman in the hour of storm; the
money which he used to have is of no worth to the debtor when a writ is
out against him. Very few earthly helps could be called "very present":
they are usually far in the seeking, far in the using, and farther still
when once used. But as for the LORD our God, He is present when we seek
Him, present when we need Him, and present when we have already enjoyed
His aid. He is more than "present," He is very present. More present than
the nearest friend can be, for He is in us in our trouble; more present
than we are to ourselves, for sometimes we lack presence of mind. He is
always present, effectually present, sympathetically present, altogether
present. He is present now if this is a gloomy season. Let us rest
ourselves upon Him. He is our refuge, let us hide in Him; He is our
strength, let us array ourselves with Him; He is our help, let us lean
upon Him; He is our very present help, let us repose in Him now. We need
not have a moment's care or an instant's fear. "The LORD of hosts is with
us; the God of Jacob is our refuge."
MORNING AND EVENING
Morning, Dec 22
“I will strengthen thee.”
God has a strong reserve with which to discharge this engagement;
for he is able to do all things. Believer, till thou canst drain dry
the ocean of omnipotence, till thou canst break into pieces the
towering mountains of almighty strength, thou never needest to fear.
Think not that the strength of man shall ever be able to overcome
the power of God. Whilst the earth’s huge pillars stand, thou hast
enough reason to abide firm in thy faith. The same God who directs
the earth in its orbit, who feeds the burning furnace of the sun,
and trims the lamps of heaven, has promised to supply thee with
daily strength. While he is able to uphold the universe, dream not
that he will prove unable to fulfil his own promises. Remember what
he did in the days of old, in the former generations. Remember how
he spake and it was done; how he commanded, and it stood fast. Shall
he that created the world grow weary? He hangeth the world upon
nothing; shall he who doth this be unable to support his children?
Shall he be unfaithful to his word for want of power? Who is it that
restrains the tempest? Doth not he ride upon the wings of the wind,
and make the clouds his chariots, and hold the ocean in the hollow
of his hand? How can he fail thee? When he has put such a faithful
promise as this on record, wilt thou for a moment indulge the
thought that he has outpromised himself, and gone beyond his power
to fulfil? Ah, no! Thou canst doubt no longer.
O thou who art my God and my strength, I can believe that this
promise shall be fulfilled, for the boundless reservoir of thy grace
can never be exhausted, and the overflowing storehouse of thy
strength can never be emptied by thy friends or rifled by thine
“Now let the feeble all be strong,
And make Jehovah’s arm their song.”
Evening, Dec 22
“The spot of his children.”
What is the secret spot which infallibly betokens the child of
God? It were vain presumption to decide this upon our own
judgment; but God’s word reveals it to us, and we may tread surely
where we have revelation to be our guide. Now, we are told
concerning our Lord, “to as many as received him, to them gave he
power to become the sons of God, even to as many as believed on
his name.” Then, if I have received Christ Jesus into my heart, I
am a child of God. That reception is described in the same verse
as believing on the name of Jesus Christ. If, then, I believe on
Jesus Christ’s name—that is, simply from my heart trust myself
with the crucified, but now exalted, Redeemer, I am a member of
the family of the Most High. Whatever else I may not have, if I
have this, I have the privilege to become a child of God. Our Lord
Jesus puts it in another shape. “My sheep hear my voice, and I
know them, and they follow me.” Here is the matter in a nutshell.
Christ appears as a shepherd to his own sheep, not to others. As
soon as he appears, his own sheep perceive him—they trust him,
they are prepared to follow him; he knows them, and they know
him—there is a mutual knowledge—there is a constant connection
between them. Thus the one mark, the sure mark, the infallible
mark of regeneration and adoption is a hearty faith in the
appointed Redeemer. Reader, are you in doubt, are you uncertain
whether you bear the secret mark of God’s children? Then let not
an hour pass over your head till you have said, “Search me, O God,
and know my heart.” Trifle not here, I adjure you! If you must
trifle anywhere, let it be about some secondary matter: your
health, if you will, or the title deeds of your estate; but about
your soul, your never-dying soul and its eternal destinies, I
beseech you to be in earnest. Make sure work for eternity.
DECEMBER The Twenty-second
THE LORD OF THE WORSHIPPER
Luke 2:25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35.
AND so the good news was taken to the worshipper bowing within the gates
of the Temple. The soul of old Simeon was filled with holy satisfaction
and peace. The cravings of the heart were quieted, and its desires found
the coveted feast in the holy Child of God.
And thus the Lord Jesus was not only to dignify the body but to gratify
the soul. He was to be most efficient where He was most needed. And this
has been the unfailing experience of the years. There is a hunger in my
soul for which I can find no satisfying bread. I have tried many breads; I
have tried nature, and art, and music, and literature, and I have tried
human fellowship and social service. But my soul is hungry still! And the
Lord Jesus comes to me, as I reverently grope in the vast temple, and He
“satisfies the hungry soul” with good things. His “bread of life” is very
wonderful; it lifts the soul into the restfulness of strength, and gives
me a strange buoyancy, and “the glorious liberty of the children of God.”
“My soul, wait thou only on Him!” He is thy hope, thy strength, and thy
salvation! He is “the desire of all the nations.”
"Year Book" 1895
"It is more blessed to give than to receive." Acts 20:35
We shall have a happier Christmas for ourselves, if we have helped
to make a little joy for some others. We give presents to our
friends—and that is right; but if we would get the richest
blessing from our giving, we must remember also some one who
really needs our gift: feeding some hungry one, or sending
clothing to one who is shivering in the cold. This is the giving
that is more blessed than receiving.

Egyptian Arabs of Nile Delta
The ancient Egyptians called their land the Black Land. And it
looks black when seen from a satellite. In the middle of the land
lies the Nile River that empties itself into the Mediterranean Sea
at the Delta. As in the days of Joseph and Moses, the Nile Delta
is the breadbasket of Egypt. Over the years the Delta has been
“host” to invaders: Sea Peoples, Canaanites, Persians, Greeks,
Romans, Arabs, Turks, French, British, and Germans. Today it is
occupied by Muslim Arabs caught between those who would impose
Sharia law on them and the Egyptian Army that does not want Sharia.
In the midst of the “Arab Spring” is Sat-7, a Christian
broadcaster. Sat-7’s even-handed coverage of the “Arab Spring”
revolution has earned it high marks and an increased audience
among the Egyptian Arabs.
Learn more at joshuaproject.net
Pray that Sat-7 will maintain its Arabic-language evangelistic
programs with creativity. Pray that more Delta Arabs will tune
into it. Pray also for revival and vision in Delta churches. The
church in Egypt needs more training, experience, funds, and
boldness of vision and witness to grow amid the current chaos.
Pray for better Christian-Muslim relations and improved relations
with the government as the “Arab Spring” opens Egypt’s Delta to
the world and the gospel.

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

(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)
