The Fall of False Religion

“Babylon is fallen, is fallen”  (Revelation 14:8) In this book of Revelation false religion is pictured by this great whore because it is very seductive and attractive to the natural man (Rev.19:2).  It is also pictured by this great city Babylon because is its great size and power in this world. But no matter its attraction to men or its greatness in…

We are Responsible to Test our Teachers

Jesus told them this parable: Can a blind man lead a blind man? Will they not both fall into the pit?” Luke 6:39 See the great danger of listening to false religious teachers. Our Lord compares such teachers and their hearers, to the blind leading the blind; and asks the reasonable question, “Will they not both fall into the pit?” The amount…

The Christian’s Secret Treasure

The fear of the Lord is his treasure. (Isaiah 33:6)   “The fear of the Lord is his treasure.” And, oh, what a treasure is this fear! Treasure in ancient times was generally hidden; it was concealed from the eye of man, hoarded up, and not brought out ostentatiously to view. Wealthy men of old hid the knowledge of their treasures, lest…

Christ is the Treasure in the Scriptures

Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken: Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory? And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.  (Luke 24:25-27) Look, therefore, always for Christ in the…

The Believer’s Growth in Dependence

But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.   (2 Peter 3:18) In the natural realm, the more we grow up — the more independent we become. When we were infants we depended on our parents to feed us, clothe us and change our soiled…

Faith of God’s Children

The children of God live by faith. Thus they began and thus they are to end. “We walk by faith, not by sight.” Their whole life is a life of faith. Their daily actions are all of faith. This forms one of the main elements of their character. It marks them out as a peculiar people. None live as they do. Their…

Will Your Faith Stand God’s Test?

“Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?”  (2 Corinthians 13:5) There is nothing on this earth more fearful than the carnal security of religion without Christ. Let us bring our faith to the Word of God and examine it. May…

The Sweet and Bitter of True Religion

“And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.”  (Revelation 10:10) True religion is not a burdensome, painful, melancholy, wearisome, and toilsome task or employment as many think. It has indeed its trials, temptations, afflictions,…

Whom We Have Believed

“For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.”  (2 Timothy 1:12) All who are called of the Holy Spirit to life and faith in Christ have this testimony. We gladly…

Happiness is Subjection to the Will of God

“Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing?  And one of them shall not fall to the ground without your Father.  But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.  Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.”  (Matt. 10:29-31)                If we were blind, and reduced to desire a person…
