Old and New Testament.
Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God,
by Whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.
THE love of the Spirit.--The
Helper, the Holy Spirit.-- In all their affliction He was afflicted, And the
angel of His presence saved them; In His love and in His mercy He redeemed
them; And He lifted them and carried them all the days of old. But they
rebelled And grieved His Holy Spirit; Therefore, He turned Himself to become
their enemy, He fought against them.
By this we know that we abide in Him and He in us,
because He has given us of His Spirit.-- Having also believed, you were
sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is given as a pledge of
our inheritance, with a view to the redemption of God's own possession.--I
say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh.
For the flesh sets its desire against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the
flesh; for these are in opposition to one another, so that you may not do
the things that you please.
The Spirit also helps our weakness

Is. 63.9, 10. 1Jn 4.13. Ep. 1.13, 14.--
Ga. 5.16, 17. Ro. 8.26.
I will go away and return to My place until
they acknowledge their guilt and seek My face.
In their affliction they will earnestly seek Me.
iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, and your sins
have hidden His face from you... I searched for him, but I did not find him;
I called him, but he did not answer me. -- I hid My face and was angry, And
he went on turning away, in the way of his heart. I have seen his ways, but
I will heal him.--Have you not done this to yourself, by your forsaking the
LORD your God, when He led you in the way?
He got up and came to his father. But while he was
still a long way off, his father saw him, and felt compassion for him, and
ran and embraced him, and kissed him.-- I will heal their apostasy, I will
love them freely, for My anger has turned away from them.
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins
and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

THE SECRET OF THE QUIET HEART
"Be still, and know that I am God."--
"Sit still, my daughter, for the man
will not rest, until he have finished the thing this day."--
PARADISE HAS vanished from our world,
as the picture of a landscape vanishes when swept by storm. And our race
stands in much the same plight as did Naomi and Ruth in this old-world
story. We have lost our inheritance, and the one barrier which stands
between us and despair is the Person and Work of our Lord Jesus Christ. But,
thank God, we need have no doubt as to the sequel. For as Boaz claimed back
the estate for Ruth, so may we be confident that Jesus Christ will never be
at rest till this sin-stained and distracted world is restored to her
primitive order and beauty, as when the morning-stars sang for joy.
Jesus is our near Kinsman by His
assumption of our nature. He is the nearest and dearest Friend of our race,
who stooped to die for our redemption. And the fact that He carried our
nature in Himself to heaven, and wears it there, is an indissoluble bond
between us. Sit still! do not fret! He will never fail, as He will certainly
Let us seek the quiet heart in our
prayers. Prayer must arise within us as a fountain from unknown depths. But
we must leave it to God to answer in His own wisest way. We are so
impatient, and think that God does not answer. A child asked God for fine
weather on her birthday, and it rained! Some one said, "God didn't answer
your prayer." "Oh yes," she replied, "He did, God always answers, but He
said No!" God always answers! He never fails! Be still! If we abide in Him,
and He abides in us, we ask what we will, and it is done. As a sound may
dislodge an avalanche, so the prayer of faith sets in motion the power of
In times of difficulty--be still!
Thine enemies are plotting thine overthrow! They laugh at thy strong
confidence! But hast thou not heard His voice saying: "This is the way, walk
ye in it"? Then leave Him to deal with thy foes from whatever quarter they
come. He is thy Rock, and rocks do not shake. He is thy High Tower, and a
high tower cannot be flooded. Thou needest mercy, and to Him belongeth
mercy. Do not run hither and thither in panic! Just quietly wait, hushing
thy soul, as He did the fears of His friends on the eve of Gethsemane and
Calvary. "Rest in the Lord, wait patiently for Him." "Be still, for He will
not rest, until He hath finished the thing this day."
If this day I should get lost amid the
perplexities of life and the rush of many duties, do Thou search me out,
gracious Lord, and bring me back into the quiet of Thy presence. 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)
of you shall chase a thousand: for the LORD your God, He it is that
fighteth for you, as He hath promised you" (Joshua 23:10).
Why count heads? One man with God is a majority though there be a thousand
on the other side. Sometimes our helpers may be too many for God to work
with them, as was the case with Gideon, who could do nothing till he had
increased his forces by thinning out their numbers. But the LORD's hosts
are never too few. When God would found a nation, He called Abram alone
and blessed him. When He would vanquish proud Pharaoh, He used no armies,
but only Moses and Aaron. The "one-man ministry," as certain wise men call
it, has been far more used of the LORD than trained bands with their
officers. Did all the Israelites together slay so many as Samson alone?
Saul and his hosts slew their thousands but David his ten thousands. The
LORD can give the enemy long odds and yet vanquish him. If we have faith,
we have God with us, and what are multitudes of men? One shepherd's dog
can drive before him a flock of sheep. If the LORD sent thee, O my
brother, His strength will accomplish His divine purpose. Wherefore, rely
on the promise, and be very courageous.
MORNING AND EVENING
"Forsake me not, O Lord."
Frequently we pray that God would not forsake us in the hour of
trial and temptation, but we too much forget that we have need to
use this prayer at all times. There is no moment of our life,
however holy, in which we can do without his constant upholding.
Whether in light or in darkness, in communion or in temptation, we
alike need the prayer, "Forsake me not, O Lord." "Hold thou me up,
and I shall be safe." A little child, while learning to walk,
always needs the nurse's aid. The ship left by the pilot drifts at
once from her course. We cannot do without continued aid from
above; let it then be your prayer today, "Forsake me not. Father,
forsake not thy child, lest he fall by the hand of the enemy.
Shepherd, forsake not thy lamb, lest he wander from the safety of
the fold. Great Husbandman, forsake not thy plant, lest it wither
and die. Forsake me not, O Lord,' now; and forsake me not at any
moment of my life. Forsake me not in my joys, lest they absorb my
heart. Forsake me not in my sorrows, lest I murmur against thee.
Forsake me not in the day of my repentance, lest I lose the hope
of pardon, and fall into despair; and forsake me not in the day of
my strongest faith, lest faith degenerate into presumption.
Forsake me not, for without thee I am weak, but with thee I am
strong. Forsake me not, for my path is dangerous, and full of
snares, and I cannot do without thy guidance. The hen forsakes not
her brood; do thou then evermore cover me with thy feathers, and
permit me under thy wings to find my refuge. Be not far from me, O
Lord, for trouble is near, for there is none to help.' Leave me
not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation!'"
"O ever in our cleansed breast,
Bid thine Eternal Spirit rest;
And make our secret soul to be
A temple pure and worthy thee."
"And they rose up the same hour, and returned to Jerusalem ... and
they told what things were done in the way, and how he was known
When the two disciples had reached Emmaus, and were refreshing
themselves at the evening meal, the mysterious stranger who had so
enchanted them upon the road, took bread and brake it, made
himself known to them, and then vanished out of their sight. They
had constrained him to abide with them, because the day was far
spent; but now, although it was much later, their love was a lamp
to their feet, yea, wings also; they forgot the darkness, their
weariness was all gone, and forthwith they journeyed back the
threescore furlongs to tell the gladsome news of a risen Lord, who
had appeared to them by the way. They reached the Christians in
Jerusalem, and were received by a burst of joyful news before they
could tell their own tale. These early Christians were all on fire
to speak of Christ's resurrection, and to proclaim what they knew
of the Lord; they made common property of their experiences. This
evening let their example impress us deeply. We too must bear our
witness concerning Jesus. John's account of the sepulchre needed
to be supplemented by Peter; and Mary could speak of something
further still; combined, we have a full testimony from which
nothing can be spared. We have each of us peculiar gifts and
special manifestations; but the one object God has in view is the
perfecting of the whole body of Christ. We must, therefore, bring
our spiritual possessions and lay them at the apostle's feet, and
make distribution unto all of what God has given to us. Keep back
no part of the precious truth, but speak what you know, and
testify what you have seen. Let not the toil or darkness, or
possible unbelief of your friends, weigh one moment in the scale.
Up, and be marching to the place of duty, and there tell what
great things God has shown to your soul.
J H JOWETT
CALVARY AND PENTECOST
Acts 2:22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36.
THE Apostle Peter traces the stream of Pentecostal blessing to a tomb. This
“river of water of life” has its “rise” in a death of transcendent
sacrifice. And I must never forget these dark beginnings of my eternal
hope. It is well that I should frequently visit the sources of my
blessedness, and kneel on “the green hill far away.”
It will save me from having a cheap religion. I shall never handle the
gifts of grace as though they had cost nothing. There will always be the
marks of blood upon them, the crimson stain of incomparable sacrifice.
And it will save me from all flippancy in my religious life. When I visit
the cross and the tomb, life is transformed from a picnic into a crusade.
For that is ever my peril, to picnic on the banks of the river and to
spend my days in emotional loitering.
After all, my Pentecost is purposed to prepare me for my own Gethsemane
and Calvary! Life is given me in order that I may spend it again in ready
and fruitful sacrifice.
"Whatever is born of the flesh—is flesh; and
whatever is born of the Spirit—is spirit." John 3:6
Like produces like. To be born of the Spirit—is to have a new life
imparted by the Spirit. This new life will be like that which
produces it. Everyone who is born of God—will have some features
of God's likeness. He will love the things that God loves, and
hate the things that God hates. In some measure, he will be like
God . . .
If we would know what God is like—we have only to look at Jesus
Christ, for He was the image of God; and if we are born again, we
shall have the same features in our lives! They will be dim at
first; but they will come out clearer and clearer each day, as we
grow in grace.
We can tell whether or not we are born again—by looking closely at
ourselves to see if we have the marks of the Spirit in our life.
Do we hate sin? Do we love holiness? Do we love the Bible and
prayer, and fellowship with the Lord's true people?
We have the same thought presented by Paul under the figure of the
seal of the Holy Spirit. All Christians are sealed by the Spirit.
The seal impresses its own features on the wax. So the Holy Spirit
seals believers—by stamping His own image on their hearts. Those
who have received the Spirit—will bear the marks of His beauty in

Ahmadiyya Muslims in Greater Los Angeles
The most evangelistic Muslim community in Los Angeles is probably
one that you haven’t even heard of, and most Muslims consider them
to be heretics. This sect of Islam is the Ahmadiyya Muslim
community. Their leader has on his business card, “US Missionary &
Minister – SW region.” Originally from India and Pakistan, they
speak Urdu and English. They live in Chino, La Puente, and
Hawthorne, all in different parts of GLAMA.
They embrace the prophets of the Qur’an and the Old Testament.
They hold to the traditional Five Pillars of Islam, but they think
that the long-awaited Messiah came in the 19th century in the
person of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad. However, they think this was the
second coming of the Messiah!
What was the first coming? It was Jesus of Nazareth; however, they
believe that Jesus survived the crucifixion and travelled to India
to continue his ministry among the Lost Tribes of Israel. They
even claim that his tomb, containing his body, was recently
discovered in India. It is easy to see why most Muslims consider
them to be a cult. Their beliefs motivate them to share and
convert people to their form of Islam. It is also these beliefs
that have caused them to be killed and persecuted in places like
Pakistan and Bangladesh. They have had to move constantly to find
a place where they can worship freely.

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,

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)

consider the things which belong to our eternal peace.
