They Shall Never Perish (John 10:28)

Our Lord here makes a blanket, unconditional promise to every true believer. It takes into consideration all times, all circumstances, all contingencies, all events and all possibilities. This promise takes in all the flock. Not one of Christ’s sheep will ever perish no, not even one. If you are a believer, if you trust the Lord Jesus Christ, if you have received…

Though Afflicted, Tempest–tossed

Pensive, doubting, fearful heart,Hear what CHRIST the Savior says;Every word should joy impart,Change thy mourning into praise:Yes, he speaks, and speaks to thee,May he help thee to believe!Then thou presently wilt see,Thou hast little cause to grieve. “Fear thou not, nor be ashamed,All thy sorrows soon shall endI who heav’n and earth have framed,Am thy husband and thy friendI the High and…

Five Heart-Piercing Statements

Many years ago, I heard Henry Mahan make several statements in a message he preached. As I sat in the congregation, listening to the message, I could easily have been convinced that he was preaching to no one but me. Like barbed arrows, these five statements pierced my heart. I wrote them down because I hope never to forget them. Why can’t…

It Is High Time To Awake Out of Sleep

Romans 13:11 The sleep here spoken of by Paul is a shameful indifference to Christ, a spiritual, callousness into which true believers sometimes fall. Yes, men and women who truly love and trust Christ do sometimes, by their own sin and neglect of him, become indifferent to him. The wise virgins, like the foolish, are often found asleep (Matthew 25:1-13; Song of…

The Future Peace And Glory Of The Church

Isaiah 60:15-20 Hear what God the LORD hath spoken, O my people, faint and few; Comfortless, afflicted, broken, Fair abodes I build for you: Themes of heart–felt tribulation Shall no more perplex your ways; You shall name your walls, Salvation, And your gates shall all be praise. There, like streams that feed the garden, Pleasures, without end, shall flow; For the LORD,…

The Cup Of Wrath

“In the hand of the LORD is a cup full of red wine mixed with spices! He pours it out, and all the wicked of the earth drink it down to its very dregs!” Psalm 75:8There has been only One who has ever drunk this cup down to its very dregs!  The only One who has taken, tasted, drunk, and wrung out the bitterest of the bitter…

My People!

I will be their God—and they shall be My people! 2 Corinthians 6:16 What a sweet title, “My people!” What a cheering revelation, “Their God!”  How much of meaning is couched in those two words, “My people!”Here is speciality. The whole world is God’s—heaven, even the heaven of heavens is the Lord’s, and He reigns among the children of men. But of those whom He…

Weaned From Feeding on Husks and Ashes 

“I will satisfy her poor with bread.” Psalm 132:15 The Lord has given a special promise to Zion’s poor—”I will satisfy her poor with bread.” Nothing else? Bread? Is that all? Yes! That is all God has promised—bread, the staff of life. But what does He mean by “bread”? The Lord Himself explains what bread is. He says, “I am the bread…

God’s Working for Good in the Christian

“We know that all things work together for good, to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28 Yes, even all the falls and all the sins of the saints shall work for their good. Oh . . . the care, the fear, the watchfulness, the tenderness, the zeal — which God raises in the…

They Are Gone

I want every child of God to realize the fact that at this very moment all of his sins are gone – effectually, completely, perfectly gone – through the great sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ. All of your sins, from the cradle to the grave, sins before conversion and sins after conversion, and sins of every kind are washed away in…
