Old and New Testament.
lamp of your body is your eye; when your eye is clear, your whole body
also is full of light
natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God; for they are
foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are
spiritually appraised.--Open my eyes, that I may behold Wonderful things
from Thy law.
I am the light of the world; he who follows Me
shall not walk in the darkness, but shall have the light of life -- we all,
with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being
transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord,
the Spirit.--God, who said, "Light shall shine out of darkness," is the One
who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory
of God in the face of Christ.
The God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of
glory... give to you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge
of Him... that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you may
know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of
His inheritance in the saints.

He struck the rock, so that waters gushed out and
streams were overflowing
ALL our fathers were
under the cloud, and all passed through the sea and all were baptized into
Moses in the cloud and in the sea and all ate the same spiritual food
and all drank the same spiritual drink for they were drinking from a
spiritual rock which followed them; and the rock was Christ -- One of the
soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately there came out blood
and water -- He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed
for our iniquities; the chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, and by
His scourging we are healed.
You are unwilling to come to Me, that you may
have life -- My people have committed two evils: They have forsaken Me, the
fountain of living waters, to hew for themselves cisterns, broken cisterns,
that can hold no water.
If any man is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink.--
Let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who wishes take the water of
life without cost.

THE WATER OF LIFE TURNED TO WINE!
"Whatsoever He saith unto you, do it.
Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them
up to the brim."--
Jn 2:5, 6, 7.
DO NOT forget the necessity of obeying
the inner voice of Christ, which may be recognised by these three signs--it
never asks questions, but is decisive and imperative; it is not unreasonable
nor impossible; it calls for an obedience which costs us some sacrifice of
our own way and will. "Whatsoever He saith unto you, do it!"
Do as you are told. It was a severe
test to obedient faith to fill up those big jars, which stood in the
vestibule of the house. Each would contain about twenty gallons, and as they
were probably nearly empty, it would be a long and tedious business to fill
them, especially at a time when guests required other attention... "They
filled them up to the brim!"
In your obedience, always give Christ
brimful measure. It may be a very small thing He asks you to dot--to teach a
class of children, to pay a visit to some sick man or woman, to write a
letter, to speak a word of comfort, to hold out the helping hand, to give
the glass of cold water, but see to it that your response is hearty and
brimful! The jar is your opportunity! A very common and ordinary one! An act
that may seem needless or inconvenient; but out of it may come the greatest
achievement of your life! When the Lord calls you into co-partnership, be
sure not to say: "'Please do not ask me!" Nay, serve Him to the brim! He
never asks you to do one small act for Him, without being prepared to add
His Almighty grace to your weakness, thereby perfecting the act. It is an
amazing thing that He should want our help. Let us give Him to the brim,
and, as we do so, we shall see a wonderful and beautiful thing, which is
"hidden from wise and prudent, but revealed to babes". "The servants who
drew the water knew." Many of us realise that this miracle is constantly
taking place. We fill our waterpots to the brim with water; but at the end
of days of careful preparation we sadly review the result, and say to
ourselves: "After all, it is very poor stuff, only water at the best!" But
as we pour it out in service to others, we know that the Master has been
collaborating with us, and has turned the water into wine! There are secrets
between the Lord and those who obey Him! It is blessed when we are workers
together with Christ. He knows, and you know. A smile passes between you and
Him, and it is enough! The best wine is always kept in reserve!
Enable me to do not only what I like
to do, but what I ought. Cause me to be faithful in a little,

VALLEY OF VISION
by C H Spurgeon
(Read C H Spurgeon's testimony
- It is miraculous as is EVERY testimony of the new birth)
A Constant Witness
"For thou shalt be His witness unto all men of what thou hast seen and
heard" (Acts 22:15).
Paul was chosen to see and hear the LORD speaking to him out of heaven.
This divine election was a high privilege for himself; but it was not
intended to end with him; it was meant to have an influence upon others,
yea, upon all men. It is to Paul that Europe owes the gospel at this hour.
It is ours in our measure to be witnesses of that which the LORD has
revealed to us, and it is at our peril that we hide the precious
revelation. First, we must see and hear, or we shall have nothing to tell;
but when we have done so, we must be eager to bear our testimony. It must
be personal: "Thou shalt be." It must be for Christ: "Thou shalt be his
witness." It must be constant and all absorbing; we are to be this above
all other things and to the exclusion of many other matters. Our witness
must not be to a select few who will cheerfully receive us but to "all
men" -- to all whom we can reach, young or old, rich or poor, good or bad.
We must never be silent like those who are possessed by a dumb spirit; for
the text before us is a command, and a promise, and we must not miss it --
"Thou shalt be his witness." "Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD."
MORNING AND EVENING
"I know how to abound."
There are many who know "how to be abased" who have not learned
"how to abound." When they are set upon the top of a pinnacle
their heads grow dizzy, and they are ready to fall. The Christian
far oftener disgraces his profession in prosperity than in
adversity. It is a dangerous thing to be prosperous. The crucible
of adversity is a less severe trial to the Christian than the
refining pot of prosperity. Oh, what leanness of soul and neglect
of spiritual things have been brought on through the very mercies
and bounties of God! Yet this is not a matter of necessity, for
the apostle tells us that he knew how to abound. When he had much
he knew how to use it. Abundant grace enabled him to bear abundant
prosperity. When he had a full sail he was loaded with much
ballast, and so floated safely. It needs more than human skill to
carry the brimming cup of mortal joy with a steady hand, yet Paul
had learned that skill, for he declares, "In all things I am
instructed both to be full and to be hungry." It is a divine
lesson to know how to be full, for the Israelites were full once,
but while the flesh was yet in their mouth, the wrath of God came
upon them. Many have asked for mercies that they might satisfy
their own hearts' lust. Fulness of bread has often made fulness of
blood, and that has brought on wantonness of spirit. When we have
much of God's providential mercies, it often happens that we have
but little of God's grace, and little gratitude for the bounties
we have received. We are full and we forget God: satisfied with
earth, we are content to do without heaven. Rest assured it is
harder to know how to be full than it is to know how to be
hungry--so desperate is the tendency of human nature to pride and
forgetfulness of God. Take care that you ask in your prayers that
God would teach you "how to be full."
"Let not the gifts thy love bestows
Estrange our hearts from thee."
"I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions, and, as
a cloud, thy sins: return unto me; for I have redeemed thee."
Attentively observe the instructive similitude: our sins are like
a cloud. As clouds are of many shapes and shades, so are our
transgressions. As clouds obscure the light of the sun, and darken
the landscape beneath, so do our sins hide from us the light of
Jehovah's face, and cause us to sit in the shadow of death. They
are earth-born things, and rise from the miry places of our
nature; and when so collected that their measure is full, they
threaten us with storm and tempest. Alas! that, unlike clouds, our
sins yield us no genial showers, but rather threaten to deluge us
with a fiery flood of destruction. O ye black clouds of sin, how
can it be fair weather with our souls while ye remain?
Let our joyful eye dwell upon the notable act of divine
mercy--"blotting out." God himself appears upon the scene, and in
divine benignity, instead of manifesting his anger, reveals his
grace: he at once and forever effectually removes the mischief,
not by blowing away the cloud, but by blotting it out from
existence once for all. Against the justified man no sin remains,
the great transaction of the cross has eternally removed his
transgressions from him. On Calvary's summit the great deed, by
which the sin of all the chosen was forever put away, was
completely and effectually performed.
Practically let us obey the gracious command, "return unto me."
Why should pardoned sinners live at a distance from their God? If
we have been forgiven all our sins, let no legal fear withhold us
from the boldest access to our Lord. Let backslidings be bemoaned,
but let us not persevere in them. To the greatest possible
nearness of communion with the Lord, let us, in the power of the
Holy Spirit, strive mightily to return. O Lord, this night restore
J H JOWETT
REGISTERING A VERDICT
“The Lord our God will we serve, and His voice will we obey.”
—Joshua 24:22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28.
HERE was a definite decision. Our peril is that we spend our life in
wavering and we never decide. We are like a jury which is always hearing
evidence and never gives a verdict. We do much thinking, but we never make
up our minds. We let our eyes wander over many things, but we make no
choice. Life has no crisis, no culmination.
Now people who never decide spend their days in hoping to do so. But this
kind of life becomes a vagrancy and not a noble and illumined crusade. We
drift through our days, we do not steer, and we never arrive at any rich
and stately haven.
It is therefore vitally wise to “make a vow unto the Lord.” It is good to
pull our loose thinkings together and to “gird up the loins of the mind.”
Let a man, at some definite place, and at some definite moment, make the
supreme choice of his life.
"She has done what she could!" Mark 14:8
A child offered her teacher a handful of weeds and grass, wilted
and soiled, and said, "Here is a bouquet for you!" The teacher saw
the love in the child's eyes, and accepted the gift with sincere
gratitude. Just so, Christ accepts our smallest gifts or
services—if He sees love in our heart.
This is the spirit with which Christ receives the gifts and
services of those who love him. The gifts may be worthless, and
the services may avail nothing—but for the love that prompts them,
he accepts them with real gladness, and richly rewards them.

- Toroobe Fulani People
The Sultan of Sokoto sighed, his stress giving him a headache. He
and other Toroobe Fulani leaders had initiated amnesty for Boko
Haram so that peace would be restored. The farmers and herdsmen
had feared going outside. Many had been captured or killed. The
Sultan thought back to his ancestor Usman dan Fodio’s Islamic
Caliphate and how that caliphate’s economy boomed. They had
captured 1-2.5 million non-Muslim slaves during that jihad. But
Boko Haram’s caliphate was not subordinate to the Sultan, and the
Sultan’s people suffered, so he had to make peace with them.
The Toroobe Fulani are a ruling class of the Sokoto Fulani. They
live in cities in the Sokoto State of northern Nigeria. They are
usually government workers, tax collectors, and municipal rulers.
They are educated and dominate the leadership of Islam in the
area. Although they may own some cattle, their real interests lie
in administration, law, religion, and education. Their children
are encouraged to go to school and to do well.
The Toroobe Fulani believe in a supernatural God who created
everything. They think that their sanctity and purity grants them
supernatural powers. They follow the strict moral code of devout
Muslims. Some engage in fortunetelling and traditional healing.
They are 99.6 percent Muslim, and few followers of Christ are

Pray that the Toroobe leadership will have a Damascus road

not prevent them from recognizing the true and living God.
Exodus 2:23-25, NASB
Now it came about in the course of those many days that the king
of Egypt died. And the sons of Israel sighed because of the
bondage, and they cried out; and their cry for help because of
their bondage rose up to God. So God heard their groaning; and God
remembered his covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. God saw
the sons of Israel, and God took notice of them.

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

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)
