I, am he that comforts you.
BLESSED be God
and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all
comfort; who comforts us in all our affliction so that we may be able to comfort
those who are in any affliction with the comfort with which we ourselves are
comforted by God --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.--As one whom his mother comforts, so will I comfort you.--Casting
all your anxiety upon him; for he cares for you.
Thou, O Lord, art a God merciful and gracious,
Slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness and truth.
Another Helper... the Spirit of truth --The Spirit
helps our weakness
He shall wipe away every tear from their eyes;
and there shall no longer be any death; there shall no longer be any
mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away

called into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ
honor and glory from God the Father...This is My beloved Son with whom I am
well-pleased--See how great a love the Father has bestowed upon us, that we
should be called children of God
Be imitators of God, as beloved children --If children
heirs also, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ
He is the radiance of His glory and the exact
representation of His nature --Let your light shine before men in such a way
that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.
Jesus the author and perfecter of faith, who for
the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame --These things I speak
in the world, that they may have My joy made full in themselves -As the sufferings of Christ
are ours in abundance, so also our comfort is abundant through Christ.

"Go out into the highways and
hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled."--
WE CAN never estimate the yearning
love of God for the souls of men. He sees us absorbed with farming and
industry; business and pleasure; with our homes and family-life, and knows
that these will all pass away, as a dream before the first touch of
eternity. With intense passion He desires that we shall be really
satisfied with abiding joys.
The Feast that He spreads is
abundant and ready (Isa 25:6; Isa 55:1,
A banquet is a happy-making time. As the guests sit together, there is the
brilliant flow of conversation, the sparkle of laughter, the enjoyment of
the good things provided, the interchange of friendship and fellowship.
Everything that a feast stands for God is waiting to give us. "He gives us
richly all things to enjoy." How strange it is that men, mocked by the
Evil One, are cajoled into forfeiting their places at the banqueting
table, which God has spread for them!
The Jewish people were first bidden,
but they were too much occupied with material things to respond to the
gracious invitation. The excuses offered were shallow and stupid; the real
reason lies much deeper, in the disinclination of the soul to arouse
itself to lay hold of the life which is life indeed! But God's purpose of
Love cannot be defeated (Luk 13:28,
29, 30; Acts 13:45, 46, 47, 48).
"Go out into the highways and
hedges.'" Here is our work as His servants! The high-roads, along which
the streams of commerce and pleasure, weddings and funerals, statesmen and
business men, young men and women, housewives and children--are constantly
passing! The hedgerows are the quiet sequestered lanes of the
country-side, now covered with spring flowers, and again with autumn
tints. The up-to-date motor car, or the slow-jogging country wagon are
symbols of different modes of life, but the souls that use them alike need
the message of Good News. Let us go forth and constrain them to come in
that our Master's House may be filled!
Blessed Lord, have mercy upon those
who reject the invitation of Thy Love! Take from us all ignorance,
hardness of heart, and contempt of Thy Word; and so fetch us home, dear
Lord, to Thy flock, that we may be saved, and become one flock under the
Great Shepherd of souls. AMEN.

Mark of Divine Approval
"Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he
shall receive the Crown Of Life, which the LORD hath promised to them that
love Him" (James 1:12).
Yes, he is blessed while he is enduring the trial. No eye can see this
till he has been anointed with heavenly eye salve. But he must endure it
and neither rebel against God nor turn aside from his integrity. He is
blessed who has gone through the fire and has not been consumed as a
counterfeit. When the test is over, then comes the hallmark of divine
approval -- "the crown of life." As if the LORD said, "Let him live; he
has been weighed in the balances, and he is not found wanting." Life is
the reward: not mere being, but holy, happy, true existence, the
realization of the divine purpose concerning us. Already a higher form of
spiritual life and enjoyment crowns those who have safely passed through
fiercest trials of faith and love. The LORD hath promised the crown of
life to those who love Him. Only lovers of the LORD will hold out in the
hour of trial; the rest will either sink or sulk, or slink back to the
world. Come, my heart, dost thou love thy LORD? Truly? Deeply? Wholly?
Then that love will be tried; but many waters will not quench it, neither
will the Roods drown it, LORD, let Thy love nourish mine to the end.
MORNING AND EVENING
Morning, Sept 14
“There were also with him other little ships.”
Jesus was the Lord High Admiral of the sea that night, and his
presence preserved the whole convoy. It is well to sail with Jesus,
even though it be in a little ship. When we sail in Christ’s
company, we may not make sure of fair weather, for great storms may
toss the vessel which carries the Lord himself, and we must not
expect to find the sea less boisterous around our little boat. If we
go with Jesus we must be content to fare as he fares; and when the
waves are rough to him, they will be rough to us. It is by tempest
and tossing that we shall come to land, as he did before us.
When the storm swept over Galilee’s dark lake all faces gathered
blackness, and all hearts dreaded shipwreck. When all creature help
was useless, the slumbering Saviour arose, and with a word,
transformed the riot of the tempest into the deep quiet of a calm;
then were the little vessels at rest as well as that which carried
the Lord. Jesus is the star of the sea; and though there be sorrow
upon the sea, when Jesus is on it there is joy too. May our hearts
make Jesus their anchor, their rudder, their lighthouse, their
life-boat, and their harbour. His Church is the Admiral’s flagship,
let us attend her movements, and cheer her officers with our
presence. He himself is the great attraction; let us follow ever in
his wake, mark his signals, steer by his chart, and never fear while
he is within hail. Not one ship in the convoy shall suffer wreck;
the great Commodore will steer every barque in safety to the desired
haven. By faith we will slip our cable for another day’s cruise, and
sail forth with Jesus into a sea of tribulation. Winds and waves
will not spare us, but they all obey him; and, therefore, whatever
squalls may occur without, faith shall feel a blessed calm within.
He is ever in the centre of the weather-beaten company: let us
rejoice in him. His vessel has reached the haven, and so shall ours.
Evening, Sept 14
acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity
have I not hid. I said, I will confess my
transgressions unto the Lord; and thou forgavest
the iniquity of my sin.”
David’s grief for sin was bitter. Its effects
were visible upon his outward frame: “his bones
waxed old”; “his moisture was turned into the
drought of summer.” No remedy could he find,
until he made a full confession before the
throne of the heavenly grace. He tells us that
for a time he kept silence, and his heart became
more and more filled with grief: like a mountain
tarn whose outlet is blocked up, his soul was
swollen with torrents of sorrow. He fashioned
excuses; he endeavoured to divert his thoughts,
but it was all to no purpose; like a festering
sore his anguish gathered, and as he would not
use the lancet of confession, his spirit was
full of torment, and knew no rest. At last it
came to this, that he must return unto his God
in humble penitence, or die outright; so he
hastened to the mercy-seat, and there unrolled
the volume of his iniquities before the
all-seeing One, acknowledging all the evil of
his ways in language such as you read in the
fifty-first and other penitential Psalms. Having
done this, a work so simple and yet so difficult
to pride, he received at once the token of
divine forgiveness; the bones which had been
broken were made to rejoice, and he came forth
from his closet to sing the blessedness of the
man whose transgression is forgiven. See the
value of a grace-wrought confession of sin! It
is to be prized above all price, for in every
case where there is a genuine, gracious
confession, mercy is freely given, not because
the repentance and confession deserve mercy, but
for Christ's sake. Blessed be God, there is
always healing for the broken heart; the
fountain is ever flowing to cleanse us from our
sins. Truly, O Lord, thou art a God “ready to
pardon!” Therefore will we acknowledge our
SEPTEMBER The Fourteenth
THE SENSE OF WANT
“This man went down to his house justified rather than the other.”
—Luke 18:9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14
THE Master sets the Pharisee and publican in contrast, and His judgment
goes against the man who has made some progress in moral attainments, and
favours the man who has no victories to show, but only a hunger for
victory. The dissatisfied sinner is preferred to the self-satisfied saint.
The Pharisee had gained an inch, but had lost his sense of the continent.
The publican had not pegged out an inch of moral claim, but he had an
overwhelming sense of the untrodden universe.
So this, I think, is the teaching for me. We are justified by the penitent
sense of want and not by the boastful sense of possession. Our sense of
lack is the measure of our hope, and our measure of hope determines the
poverty or fulness of our communion with the Lord. The Pharisee had no
“beyond,” no realm of admiration, no hope! Aspiration was dead, and
therefore inspiration had ceased. Our possibilities nestle in our
"Year Book" 1895
"That they may be ever seeing—but never perceiving,
and ever hearing—but never understanding" Mark 4:12
It is a mistake not to use one's eyes to see things that are to be
seen. The result is that in the end—one has no eyes with which to
see. Refusing to listen to the words of God that are spoken in
gentleness and love, results in the loss of the power to hear, so
that in all God's universe of love, one shall hear no sweet sound;
so that the very voices of tender mercy shall become screams of
terror. Refusing to understand the things of God—leads to the
dulling and deadening of the soul, so that at last one cannot
understand—even if he would.
We should learn to keep all the gates of our soul open toward
heaven. We should train ourselves to see whatever God would show
us. Thus shall our eyes become able to see more and more beauty in
God and in all his works. We should keep our ears intent to hear
every Word that God speaks to us. We should strive to understand
what God teaches us; for to those who seek, all hidden mysteries
at length become clear

Bhindu paraded through the streets holding an effigy of a man high
on a pole with a slipper attached to it. For some reason the man
had insulted Bhindu, and as he paraded along, Bhindu sang a song
of humiliation about his enemy in a high-pitched voice growing
louder and louder. At last the man ran up to him and shouted,
“Here, take some money! But be quiet and say no more! Bhindu
smirked as he counted the money, lowered the effigy and walked
What Bhindu was doing was a twisted version of an ancient practice
known as phakra. This practice involved singing poetic songs of
praise to another person and is part of the culture of the Bhat
The name Bhat comes from the Sanskrit word for “scholar.” The Bhat
mostly reside in the northern part of India and are landowners and
temple priests. Their people have been most responsible for the
history-keeping, genealogy, and preservation of Indian literature.
These Hindus shun physical work and are linguistically and
culturally isolated from the gospel.
Pray that every Bhat person will have the opportunity to hear a
clear presentation of the gospel in their mother language. Pray
that a great thirst will arise in the hearts and minds of the Bhat
to know the true and living God. Pray that God will call workers

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.
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)
