The free gift
arose from many transgressions resulting in justification
THOUGH your sins be as scarlet, they will
be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they will be like
wool.--I, even I, am the one who wipes out your transgressions for My own
sake; and I will not remember your sins. Put Me in remembrance; let us argue
our case together, State your cause, that you may be proved right.-- I have
wiped out your transgressions like a thick cloud, and your sins like a heavy
mist. Return to Me, for I have redeemed you.
Ro 5.16. Is 1.18.--Is
God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that
whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life--But the
free gift is not like the transgression. For if by the transgression of the
one the many died, much more did the grace of God and the gift by the grace
of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abound to the many.-- And such were some of
you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in
the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and in the Spirit of our God.
Is 44.22. Jn 3.16.--Ro 5.15.--

THE Son of man
is like a man, away on a journey, who upon leaving his house and putting his
slaves in charge, assigning to each one his task, also commanded the
doorkeeper to stay on the alert.--To one he gave five talents, to another,
two, and to another, one, each according to his own ability; and he went on

We must work the works of Him who sent Me, as long as
it is day; night is coming, when no man can work.--Did you not know that I
had to be in My Father's house? -- Leaving you an example for you to follow
in His steps
Preach the word; be ready in season and out of season;
reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction.--Each man's
work will become evident; for the day will show it, because it is to be
revealed with fire; and the fire itself will test the quality of each man's
work.--Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always
abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in

THE GROWTH OF THE SOUL
"My soul followeth hard
after Thee: Thy right hand upholdeth me."-- Psa 63:8.
THERE ARE three notes in
this Psalm which betoken the stages of the soul's growth: "My soul
thirsteth for Thee"; "my soul shall be satisfied"; "my soul
followeth hard after Thee." We may be passing through a wilderness
of spiritual drought, the dark night of the soul, the seasons of
dryness and depression which are apt to befall. In some cases, as
when Elijah asked to die, or when John sent his despairing
question to Christ from his prison, it is the result of physical
or mental overstrain. But at such times, let us never hesitate
still to speak of God as "'my God." Nothing can sever you from His
everlasting Love. You may not have the glad consciousness of it,
but you must never surrender your belief in it. Go on blessing
Him, as long as you live, and lift up your hands in prayer.
But we can never be
satisfied with what we have attained. God is ever moving forward!
Let us follow hard after Him.
Living or dying, Lord, I
would be Thine. Draw me day by day nearer to Thyself, until I be
wholly filled with Thy love, and fitted to behold Thee face to

"BUT THE WORD
OF THE LORD ABIDES FOREVER." And this is the word which was preached to
you" (1 Peter 1:25).
All human teaching and, indeed, all human beings shall pass away as the
grass of the meadow; but we are here assured that the Word of the LORD is
of a very different character, for it shall endure forever. We have here a
divine gospel; for what word can endure forever but that which is spoken
by the eternal God? We have here an ever-living gospel, as full of
vitality as when it first came from the lips of God; as strong to convince
and convert, to regenerate and console, to sustain and sanctify as ever it
was in its first days of wonder-working. We have an unchanging gospel
which is not today green grass and tomorrow dry hay but always the abiding
truth of the immutable Jehovah. Opinions alter, but truth certified by God
can no more change than the God who uttered it. Here, then, we have a
gospel to rejoice in, a word of the LORD upon which we may lean all our
weight. "For ever" includes life, death, judgment, and eternity. Glory be
to God in Christ Jesus for everlasting consolation. Feed on the word today
and all the days of thy life.
MORNING AND EVENING
Morning, August 31
“On mine arm shall they trust.”
In seasons of severe trial, the Christian has nothing on earth that
he can trust to, and is therefore compelled to cast himself on his
God alone. When his vessel is on its beam-ends, and no human
deliverance can avail, he must simply and entirely trust himself to
the providence and care of God. Happy storm that wrecks a man on
such a rock as this! O blessed hurricane that drives the soul to God
and God alone! There is no getting at our God sometimes because of
the multitude of our friends; but when a man is so poor, so
friendless, so helpless that he has nowhere else to turn, he flies
into his Father’s arms, and is blessedly clasped therein! When he is
burdened with troubles so pressing and so peculiar, that he cannot
tell them to any but his God, he may be thankful for them; for he
will learn more of his Lord then than at any other time. Oh,
tempest-tossed believer, it is a happy trouble that drives thee to
thy Father! Now that thou hast only thy God to trust to, see that
thou puttest thy full confidence in him. Dishonour not thy Lord and
Master by unworthy doubts and fears; but be strong in faith, giving
glory to God. Show the world that thy God is worth ten thousand
worlds to thee. Show rich men how rich thou art in thy poverty when
the Lord God is thy helper. Show the strong man how strong thou art
in thy weakness when underneath thee are the everlasting arms. Now
is the time for feats of faith and valiant exploits. Be strong and
very courageous, and the Lord thy God shall certainly, as surely as
he built the heavens and the earth, glorify himself in thy weakness,
and magnify his might in the midst of thy distress. The grandeur of
the arch of heaven would be spoiled if the sky were supported by a
single visible column, and your faith would lose its glory if it
rested on anything discernible by the carnal eye. May the Holy
Spirit give you to rest in Jesus this closing day of the month.
Evening, August 31
“If we walk
in the light, as he is in the light.”
1 John 1:7
As he is in the light! Can we ever attain to
this? Shall we ever be able to walk as clearly
in the light as he is whom we call “Our Father,”
of whom it is written, “God is light, and in him
is no darkness at all?” Certainly, this is the
model which is set before us, for the Saviour
himself said, “Be ye perfect, even as your
Father who is in heaven is perfect;” and
although we may feel that we can never rival the
perfection of God, yet we are to seek after it,
and never to be satisfied until we attain to it.
The youthful artist, as he grasps his early
pencil, can hardly hope to equal Raphael or
Michael Angelo, but still, if he did not have a
noble beau ideal before his mind, he would only
attain to something very mean and ordinary. But
what is meant by the expression that the
Christian is to walk in light as God is in the
light? We conceive it to import likeness, but
not degree. We are as truly in the light, we are
as heartily in the light, we are as sincerely in
the light, as honestly in the light, though we
cannot be there in the same measure. I cannot
dwell in the sun, it is too bright a place for
my residence, but I can walk in the light of the
sun; and so, though I cannot attain to that
perfection of purity and truth which belongs to
the Lord of hosts by nature as the infinitely
good, yet I can set the Lord always before me,
and strive, by the help of the indwelling
Spirit, after conformity to his image. That
famous old commentator, John Trapp, says, “We
may be in the light as God is in the light for
quality, but not for equality.” We are to have
the same light, and are as truly to have it and
walk in it as God does, though, as for equality
with God in his holiness and purity, that must
be left until we cross the Jordan and enter into
the perfection of the Most High. Mark that the
blessings of sacred fellowship and perfect
cleansing are bound up with walking in the
AUGUST The Thirty-first
THE REAL GAINS AND LOSSES
“Godliness with contentment is great gain.”
—1Timothy 6:6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16.
AND so I must go into my heart if I would make a true estimate of my gains
and losses. The calculation is not to be made in my bank-books, or as I
stride over my broad acres, or inspect my well-filled barns. These are the
mere outsides of things, and do not enter into the real balance-sheet of
my life. We can no more estimate the success of a life by methods like
these than we can adjudge an oil-painting by the sense of smell.
What is my stock of godliness? That is one of the test questions. What are
my treasures of contentment? What about peace and joy, and hallowed and
blessed carelessness? How much pure laughter rings in my life? How much
bird-music is heard in the chambers of my heart? Is the note of praise to
be found in the streets of my soul? Am I rich in these things or
pathetically poor? “By these things men live,” and therefore of these
things will I make my balance-sheet and reckon up my gains.
"Year Book" 1895
"Meanwhile, the people in Judah said, "The strength of the
laborers is giving out, and there is so much rubble that we
cannot rebuild the wall!" Nehemiah 4:10
There are always croakers and discouragers! They find fault with
their part of the work, and object to the methods of those in
We remember how it was with the spies sent to look over the
promised land. It was a good country, they said, rich and
fertile—but, oh, the giants that were there! So these ten
frightened men discouraged a whole nation!
People are forever making it harder for others to live
righteously—by going about with their murmurings and groanings!
These people of Judah in Nehemiah's time, seem to have been only
half-hearted. They were not willing to make sacrifices to get
the city rebuilt.
Nothing good is ever accomplished without cost! Gold is not
picked up in the streets! Half-heartedness is not merely
weakness; it is sin! All through the ages, men who have been
blessings to the world, have been willing to bear burdens that
were too heavy for them. Easy living never accomplished much for
God or the world!

At dawn, mother rises from sleep. Quietly she finds a dish of
sticky rice and vegetables prepared the night before. She
carries it into the shrine room. Bowing three times, she places
the offering before a small raised table. She starts a fresh
incense stick. Then she goes outside and down the steps from her
raised home to her garden where she gathers a few flowers and
spreads them around the food. This is her morning offering. In
the evening, she will repeat her devotion. As various family
members start their day, they will enter the shrine room, bow
three times, and pray. In addition to offerings at their family
shrine, she will send her sons to the nearby Buddhist monastery
to give offerings of food and alms to the monks and nuns living
This mother and her family are part of the Khamti people, a
group related to the Shan, who live in the triangle where
Myanmar, India, and China meet. Faithful missionaries brought
the news of Jesus to this region long ago, but the Khamti people
have yet to respond in noticeable numbers.

This verse is about transformation! And we need transformation
before we can forgive as the Lord wants us to. Our old nature is
100 percent unforgiving. When we are walking in the Spirit, the
Spirit living in us makes forgiving easy. This is because He
paid the price for our sins and forgave us, so we can
pre-forgive everybody from now to eternity!
Pray for the Lord to bring about forgiveness and reconciliation
through Him among every Shan people.

Bryon Paulus, director

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
National wickedness will end

Sooner or later, sin will be
the ruin, as well as the reproach, of every people.
Oh that, being humbled for

(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)
