I Saw – Revelation 19

It would be difficult to find a sight comparable in its majesty and its soul-thrilling grandeur than the sight which John received on that day when he saw heaven opened. Listen to his words which must have been spoken with unparalleled joy: “I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and He that sat […]

I Saw – John the Baptist

“And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God” (John 1:34). Think of all John saw and all that he called upon men to see. John saw a Man standing by the banks of Jordan who did not need to confess failure and flaws. Multitudes had come out to the Jordan […]

I Saw

John the Apostle was a masterful writer. He employs a vocabulary suitable for an elementary school child, but a depth of thought to challenge any intellect.

The Lord’s Promise

“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” 2 Peter 3:9 The United States was presented with a grim and sobering prediction this week as we appear to approach that apex long […]

The Fourth Day

They had sent a message to the Lord. They were assured of His love and interest, but He had not come in time. Hopes they entertained for healing slowly ebbed. The inevitable happened, crushing the last faint glimmer the had for his recovery. Reality confronted them – he died. The funeral cortege followed the grieving […]

Thy Will Be Done

A meditation on the Lord’s prayer in Gethsemane “My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as you will.” (Matthew 26.39) Why did our Lord Jesus pray thus in Gethsemane? He knew His Father’s will and was always determined to fulfill it, continually and unwaveringly. […]
