Old and New Testament.
When you have eaten and are satisfied, you shall
bless the LORD your God for the good land which He has given you
lest you forget the LORD your God -- One of them, when he saw that he had
been healed, turned back, glorifying God with a loud voice and he fell on
his face at His feet, giving thanks to Him. And he was a Samaritan. And
Jesus answered and said, Were there not ten cleansed? But the nine-- where
are they? Was no one found who turned back to give glory to God, except this
Everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected, if it is
received with gratitude for it is sanctified by means of the word of God and
prayer -- He who eats, does so for the Lord, for he gives thanks to God --
The blessing of the LORD that makes rich, and He adds no sorrow to it.
Bless the LORD, O my soul; and all that is within me,
bless His holy name. Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget none of His
benefits Who pardons all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases; Who
redeems your life from the pit; Who crowns you with lovingkindness and

Christ is the same yesterday and today, yes and forever. -- We do not have a

tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin -- He can deal gently with
the ignorant and misguided -- He came and found them sleeping, and
said to Peter, Simon, are you asleep? Could you not keep watch for one hour?
Keep watching and praying, that you may not come into temptation; the spirit
is willing, but the flesh is weak.
Just as a father has compassion on his children, So the
LORD has compassion on those who fear Him. For He Himself knows our frame.
He is mindful that we are but dust.

VISION AND PURPOSE
"I said, What shall I do, Lord?"--
"Not that I have already obtained, or
am already made perfect: but I press on toward the goal."--
Php 3:12, 13-note,
WHEN THE Apostle Paul was suddenly
brought into the presence of the Eternal, the whole course of his life was
changed. In that flash of Light he saw the exalted Saviour, and learnt that
he was antagonising the purposes of redeeming grace, and that vision altered
the whole of his purposes and actions. From that great hour he forgot the
things that were behind, and endeavoured to apprehend that for which he had
been apprehended by Christ Jesus. It was his ambition to build his life on
the pattern shown him on the mount.
Years after, as he reviewed his
life-work, the churches he had founded, the cities he had evangelised, the
epistles he had written, surely he might have reckoned that he had
apprehended; but ever as he climbed, he envisaged heights beckoning beyond
his attainments. Is not that the case with us, as we compare the vision of
God's purpose with what we have realised? Oh, give us back the years that
have gone, that we may do better, be more accurate and successful in the
transmission to living fact of those fair ideals, which called to us years
ago! The vision in the sanctuary may never be perfectly realised by these
bungling apprentice-hands. Yet God accepts and forgives the mistakes, as the
mother accepts the cobbled stitches of her little girl who tries to help her
with her sewing. "Not that we have already attained, or are already perfect,
but we follow on," and God forgives and accepts our poor patchwork!
What must we do to achieve our ideals?
We must be more often in the sanctuary, in fellowship with Christ, to whose
image we are to be conformed. With the Psalmist we must say: "Whom have I in
heaven but Thee, and there is none on the earth that I desire beside Thee."
As we look on Him, we shall be changed into His likeness. As He is, so shall
we become. Martyrs on the night before their agony; reformers hesitating at
their tasks; scholars wondering whether their long self-denial was worth
while; fathers and mothers; teachers and workers; preachers and
missionaries, all these have stood in the sanctuary of God, until they have
seen the vision and ideal. Then they have reckoned that what God had taught
them to long for, He was prepared to enable them to effect. "All things are
possible to him that believeth."
Grant unto me grace, O Lord, that I
may both perceive and know what things I ought to do, and may also have
grace and power faithfully to fulfil the same. 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)
Return from Backsliding
"If thou return to the Almighty, thou shalt be built up" (Job
Eliphaz, in this utterance, spoke a great truth, which is the summary of
many an inspired Scripture. Reader, has sin pulled you down? Have you
become like a ruin? Has the hand of the LORD gone out against you so that
in estate you are impoverished and in spirit you are broken down? Was it
your own folly which brought upon you all this dilapidation? Then the
first thing to be done is to return to the LORD. With deep repentance and
sincere faith find your way back from your backsliding. It is your duty,
for you have turned away from Him whom you professed to serve. It is your
wisdom, for you cannot strive against Him and prosper. It is your
immediate necessity, for what He has done is nothing compared to what He
may do in the way of chastisement, since He is Almighty to punish. See
what a promise invites you! You shall be "built up." None but the Almighty
can set up the fallen pillars and restore the tottering walls of your
condition; but He can and He will do it if you return to Him. Do not
delay. Your crushed mind may quite fail you if you go on to rebel; but
hearty confession will ease you, and humble faith will console you. Do
this, and all will be well.
MORNING AND EVENING
"Arise, and depart."
The hour is approaching when the message will come to us, as it
comes to all--"Arise, and go forth from the home in which thou
hast dwelt, from the city in which thou hast done thy business,
from thy family, from thy friends. Arise, and take thy last
journey." And what know we of the journey? And what know we of the
country to which we are bound? A little we have read thereof, and
somewhat has been revealed to us by the Spirit; but how little do
we know of the realms of the future! We know that there is a black
and stormy river called "Death." God bids us cross it, promising
to be with us. And, after death, what cometh? What wonder-world
will open upon our astonished sight? What scene of glory will be
unfolded to our view? No traveller has ever returned to tell. But
we know enough of the heavenly land to make us welcome our summons
thither with joy and gladness. The journey of death may be dark,
but we may go forth on it fearlessly, knowing that God is with us
as we walk through the gloomy valley, and therefore we need fear
no evil. We shall be departing from all we have known and loved
here, but we shall be going to our Father's house--to our Father's
home, where Jesus is--to that royal "city which hath foundations,
whose builder and maker is God." This shall be our last removal,
to dwell forever with him we love, in the midst of his people, in
the presence of God. Christian, meditate much on heaven, it will
help thee to press on, and to forget the toil of the way. This
vale of tears is but the pathway to the better country: this world
of woe is but the stepping-stone to a world of bliss.
"Prepare us, Lord, by grace divine,
For thy bright courts on high;
Then bid our spirits rise, and join
The chorus of the sky."
"And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come
Without considering these words in their prophetical connection,
let us regard them as the invitation of our great Forerunner to
his sanctified people. In due time there shall be heard "a great
voice from heaven" to every believer, saying, "Come up hither."
This should be to the saints the subject of joyful anticipation.
Instead of dreading the time when we shall leave this world to go
unto the Father, we should be panting for the hour of our
emancipation. Our song should be--
"My heart is with him on his throne,
And ill can brook delay;
Each moment listening for the voice,
Rise up and come away.'"
We are not called down to the grave, but up to the skies. Our
heaven-born spirits should long for their native air. Yet should
the celestial summons be the object of patient waiting. Our God
knows best when to bid us "Come up hither." We must not wish to
antedate the period of our departure. I know that strong love will
make us cry,
"O Lord of Hosts, the waves divide,
And land us all in heaven;"
but patience must have her perfect work. God ordains with accurate
wisdom the most fitting time for the redeemed to abide below.
Surely, if there could be regrets in heaven, the saints might
mourn that they did not live longer here to do more good. Oh, for
more sheaves for my Lord's garner! more jewels for his crown! But
how, unless there be more work? True, there is the other side of
it, that, living so briefly, our sins are the fewer; but oh! when
we are fully serving God, and he is giving us to scatter precious
seed, and reap a hundredfold, we would even say it is well for us
to abide where we are. Whether our Master shall say "go," or
"stay," let us be equally well pleased so long as he indulges us
with his presence.

LEAVING ITS MARK
“Fear not, thou worm Jacob, I will make thee a threshing instrument with
— Isaiah 41:8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14.
COULD any two things be in greater contrast than a worm and an instrument
with teeth? The worm is delicate, bruised by a stone, crushed beneath a
passing wheel; an instrument with teeth can break and not be broken, it
can grave its mark upon the rock. And the mighty God can convert the one
into the other. He can take a man or a nation, who has all the impotence
of the worm, and by the invigoration of His own Spirit He can endow them
with strength by which they will leave a noble mark upon the history of
And so the “worm” may take heart. The mighty God can make us stronger than
our circumstances. We can bend them all to our good. In God’s strength we
can make them all pay tribute to our souls. We can even take hold of a
black disappointment, break it open, and extract some jewel of grace. When
God gives us wills like iron we can drive through difficulties as the iron
share cuts through the toughest soil. “I will make thee,” saith the Lord,
“and shall He not do it?”
"You will have tribulation in this world." John 16:33
The word tribulation is very suggestive. It comes from a root
which means 'a flail'. The thresher uses the flail to beat the
wheat sheaves, that he may separate the golden wheat from the
chaff and straw.
Tribulation is God's threshing—not to destroy us, but to get what
is good, heavenly, and spiritual in us—separated from what is
wrong, earthly, and fleshly. Nothing less than blows of pain will
do this. The evil so strongly clings to the good; the golden wheat
of goodness in us is so closely wrapped up in the strong chaff of
sin, that only the heavy flail of suffering can produce the
Suffering is like John the Baptist, wearing grim garments, with
stern visage and rough hands and a baptism of bitter tears,
uttering sharp, harsh words, going before Christ to prepare us for
his gentle coming and his message of love. Many of us would never
enter the gates of pearl—were it not for this unwelcome messenger,

- Nigerian Fulani People
(This story illustrates the situation in Nigeria.)
Out of breath, a young man in Nigeria ran into a hut that served
as a church. “The Fulani are coming!” he shouted. Everyone stopped
singing. “God help us!” said the pastor. Everyone ran out of the
hut and out of the village, leaving behind their cattle and their
crops to Boko Haram members who were coming to kill, steal, and
The Fulani is a cluster of people groups that speak the Fulfulde
language. Most of them are nomadic cattle herders who reject
education and permanent homes. The Fulani are over 99 percent
Muslim, but a few members of that people group have come to see
Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. In March of 2015, a group
of Fulani, who had joined Boko Haram, killed 82 Christians in the
village of Agatu in Nigeria.

Pray for peace in Nigeria. May the persecution of Christians end.
Ask God to open the hearts of the Fulani to the true message of
salvation. May this people group come to see Jesus Christ as the
true Lord and Savior. Pray that the few Fulani followers of Jesus
Christ will be protected from harm. May they grow in faith, hope,
and love so they can take the message of salvation to their own
Psalm 73:16-25, NASB
When I pondered to understand this, it was troublesome in my sight
until I came into the sanctuary of God; then I perceived their
end. Surely you set them in slippery places; you cast them down to
destruction. How they are destroyed in a moment! They are utterly
swept away by sudden terrors. Like a dream when one awakes, O
Lord, when aroused, you will despise their form. When my heart was
embittered, and I was pierced within, then I was senseless and
ignorant; I was like a beast before you. Nevertheless I am
continually with you; you have taken hold of my right hand. With
your counsel you will guide me, and afterward receive me to glory.
Whom have I in heaven but You? And besides you, I desire nothing
on earth. -

Bryon Paulus, director

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.
Oh that, being humbled for
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)

consider the things which belong to our eternal peace.
