2016/07/14

--- Devotions - Read Day 288 1 Kings 18; Psalms 104; Ezekiel 48; 1 Thessalonians 1.

Elijah called on the people to quit sitting on the fence and to choose a side. "If God is the Lord, then follow Him; but if Baal is the Lord, then follow him instead." Four hundred fifty prophets of Baal laid a bull on Baal's altar and called upon Baal to send down and consume the sacrifice. They called upon Baal all day. They cut themselves and cried loudly to Baal, but nothing happened. Then Elijah laid a bull on God's altar,doused it thoroughly with water, and called upon God just once. God sent down fire and consumed the bull, the wood, the stone altar, and the water too.

2016/07/01

--- Devotions - Read Day 287 1 Kings 17; Psalms 103; Ezekiel 47; Colossians 4.

Elijah stood before the Lord and relayed His word to Ahab, and neither dew nor rain fell on Israel for three years. But God sustained Elijah. First, God provided the ravens to bring Elijah bread by the brook Cherith. And then, when the brook dried up, God provided the widow of Zarepath's unending barrel of meal and unfailing cruse of oil (and thereby also blessed the widow and her son as well - and when her son died, God used Elijah to raise the boy back to life, and the woman believed!)

2016/06/01 through 2016/06/30

--- BS670 - Reviewing documents and materials.

2016/06/30

--- Devotions - Read Day 286 1 Kings 16; Psalms 102; Ezekiel 46; Colossians 3.

Do all things heartily, as unto the Lord.

2016/06/29

--- Devotions - Read Day 285 1 Kings 15; Psalms 99, 100, 101; Ezekiel 45; Colossians 2.

When Rehoboam died, his son Abijam ascended to the throne of Judah and reigned three years. Abijam's mother was Maachah, the daughter of Abishalom. When Abijam died, his son Asa ascended to the throne of Judah. But Asa's mother was ALSO Maachah, the daughter of Abishalom. How did that happen? Lockyer's All the Women of the Bible (p. 86) says she was actually the mother of Abijam and the grandmother of Asa. Archer's Encyclopedia of Bible Difficulties and other similar sources don't address the issue. In the Hebrew, the wording is identical in both locations (1 Kings 15:2, 10) = "beth" in Hebrew = "daughter of" in English. In the Septuagint, however, verse 2 indicates that Abijam ruled six years (instead of three) and his mother was Maacah the daughter of Absalom, while Asa's mother (verse 10) was Ana the daughter of Absalom. Furthermore, Absalom apparently only had one daughter, Tamar, and 2 Chronicles 13:2 says Abijam's mother was Michaiah the daughter of Uriel of Gibeah. 2 Chronicles also indicates Asa's mother was Maachah (15:16). Possibly, Maachah was the granddaughter of Absalom, the mother of Abijam, and the grandmother of Asa, but the matter is not certain. This appears to be another question for me to add to my list to ask when I get to Heaven.

2016/06/17

--- Devotions - Read Day 284 1 Kings 14; Psalms 97, 98; Ezekiel 44; Colossians 1.

2016/06/16

--- Devotions - Read Day 283 1 Kings 13; Psalms 95, 96; Ezekiel 43; Philippians 4.

2016/06/15

--- Devotions - Read Day 282 1 Kings 12; Psalms 94; Ezekiel 42; Philippians 3.

Jeroboam, fearful that the ten tribes would return to rejoin Judah and Benjamin if they kept going to the Temple in Jerusalem, made two golden calves for them to worship instead. Paul stated his life goal in Philippians 3:10, "That I may know Him (Christ), and the power of His resurrection. Verse 21 tells us that Jesus Christ will change our bodies to be like His glorious body, using the same mechanism by which He is able to subdue all things unto Himself. That mechanism (KJV = working; NIV, ESV = power) is energeia in the Greek. It means the state or quality of being active, that is, a working, an operation, or an action.

2016/06/13

--- Devotions - Read Day 281 1 Kings 11; Psalms 92, 93; Ezekiel 41; Philippians 2.

King Solomon had 700 wives and 300 concubines. But Deuteronomy 17:17 commanded that the King should not multiply wives to himself. Furthermore, Deuteronomy 7:3 commanded that no man of Israel (not just the King) should marry any woman from the nations which were cast out of the promised land. Among those were the Ammonites and the Hittites. But many of Solomon's wives were taken from among the Ammonites and the Hittites. In Deuteronomy 7:4, God said the reason for this prohibition was because such women would turn them away from the Lord to worship other gods. And, that's just what happened to Solomon. As a result, God told Solomon that He would tear Solomon's kingdom apart. Solomon's son, Rehoboam would only get to rule Judah and Benjamin. The other ten tribes would be given to Jeroboam, the son of Nebat.

2016/06/12

--- Devotions - Read Day 280 1 Kings 10; Psalms 91; Ezekiel 40; Philippians 1.

The Queen of Sheba visits Solomon and sees all his wisdom and treasure. In Psalm 91, verse 12 is what Satan quoted when tempting Jesus, "They shall bear thee up in their hands lest thou dash thy foot against a stone." God begins to tell Ezekiel the plans for the End Times Temple. Since the design matches neither Solomon's Temple, nor the rebuilt Temple constructed during Ezra and Nehemiah's days, it seems appropriate to suggest it is yet future, perhaps during the Millenium. Given Christ's once-for-all sacrifice for us, the purpose of the animal sacrifices in this future Temple is not entirely clear. Paul says that to live is Christ and to die is gain. We have been given the opportunity, not only to live for Christ, but to also suffer for His sake.

2016/06/11

--- Devotions - Read Day 279 1 Kings 9; Psalms 90; Ezekiel 39; Ephesians 6.

God promises Solomon continued success if he continues in his walk before God. But, if Israel rebels against God, they will be cast out of the land and everyone who passes by will be astonished by the Temple ruins. In Psalm 90, Moses reflects upon the brevity of life and the need for us to number our days so that we can apply our hearts to wisdom. Ezekiel prophesies that, following the attack on Israel by its neighbors in the End Times, the Israelites will spend seven months burying their enemies' dead, and seven years burning all their enemies' weapons. But as for us, right now, Paul warns us that we're not just struggling against human enemies, but against the very powers of Hell. And, unlike in many current television dramas, where human strength and cunning seem sufficient to defeat such powers, Paul counsels us that we must instead put on the entire armor of God.

2016/06/10

--- Devotions - Read Day 278 1 Kings 8; Psalms 89; Ezekiel 38; Ephesians 5.

In dedicating the Temple, Solomon notes that the house was built for the Lord's name but that no house, no not even all the heavens, could contain God Himself. But the Temple is to serve as a testimony so that all the peoples of the Earth may know that the Lord is God and that there is no other. In the End Times, quite possibly near the middle of the 7-year Great Tribulation period, Israel's (currently islamic) neighbors will attack Israel from all sides. God will direct this invasion, and He will subsequently crush it. And they shall know that God is the Lord. Ephesians 5:22 tells wives to submit to their husbands; a prescription decried as sexist by many today. But 5:25 tells husbands to love their wives as Christ loved the church and gave Himself for her. If more husbands fulfilled 5:25, fewer wives would complain about 5:22.

2016/06/09

--- Devotions - Read Day 277 1 Kings 7; Psalms 87, 88; Ezekiel 37; Ephesians 4.

God promised, through Ezekiel, that He would gather Israel and Judah back into the land and would join them back together into one people. God wrote this through Ezekiel just about 2,600 years ago and it appears that He began carrying out this plan in 1948, 68 years ago, with the restoration of the Nation of Israel. Yet, just as the dry bones came together, with flesh and sinew, but had no breath, so also the majority in Israel today do not know our Lord Jesus. That day is yet to come, when the Spirit will breath breath back into the bodies and they will look upon Him whom they have pierced. God says in that day, "I will be their God and they will be my people."

2016/06/08

--- Devotions - Read Day 276 1 Kings 6; Psalms 86; Ezekiel 36; Ephesians 3.

We often think of biblical times as being technologically primitive. Yet Solomon's Temple was built without the use of a single iron tool (hammer, axe, etc.) at the building site. All the stone and other materials were measured and cut off-site and delivered to the Temple Mount ready to be lifted and set in place with no trimming required. In the Holy of Holies, two statues of cherubim were carved from Olive wood and overlaid with gold. Now, Exodus 20:4-5 prohibited the making of images, but Archer (Encyclopedia of Bible Difficulties, p. 116), indicates this prohibition related specifically to the worshipping of such images. Thus, the command to make them is not an inconsistency. The promise of regathering in Ezekiel includes a new heart and a new spirit: that (Ephesians 3:17) Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith.

2016/06/07

--- Devotions - Read Day 275 1 Kings 4, 5; Psalms 85; Ezekiel 35; Ephesians 2.

Solomon had 40,000 stalls of horses, even though God's rules for the Kings of Israel state that they must not multiply horses to themselves (De. 17:16). Nevertheless, God was faithful and gave Solomon great wisdom and understanding, as well as a large heart. Even when we stumble, God is gracious and faithful to stand us up and bless us in our walk with Him. Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people, thou hast covered all their sin (Ps. 85:2). For He is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition (Eph. 2:14).

2016/06/05

--- Devotions - Read Day 274 1 Kings 3; Psalms 83, 84; Ezekiel 34; Ephesians 1.

Solomon asks for wisdom. God grants him that and more. Solomon judges wisely between two women, each with a baby. One baby is alive and the other is dead. To which woman does the live baby belong? More wisdom: I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house God, than to be a king in a house of wickedness. Compare the wicked shepherds of Ezekiel 34 with Jesus, the Great Shepherd of the sheep. And, in Ephesians 1, God tells us that He selected us to be His beloved sheep even before the universe began!

2016/06/04

--- Devotions - Read Day 273 1 Kings 2; Psalms 81, 82; Ezekiel 33; Galatians 6.

God calls us to be witnesses for Jesus. If we fail to warn others, they will die in their sins, but their blood will be upon us. If we warn them, and they don't heed the warning, then their blood is upon their own heads. But, we should, with meekness, restore a brother or sister who has fallen into sin, being careful not to be tempted into sin ourselves. People cannot successfully mock God: they reap what they sow.

2016/06/03

--- Devotions - Read Day 272 1 Kings 1; Psalms 80; Ezekiel 32; Galatians 5.

Adonijah sought to make himself King, but God led the aged David to crown Solomon. Adonijah surrounded himself with earthly power, but God dipersed all that "power" with a word. Paul counsels us to stand fast in liberty, but to also foreswear the works of the flesh, and to pursue the fruit of the Spirit instead.

We are writing a gospel, a chapter a day,
By the deeds that we do and the words that we say.
Men read what we write, whether faithful and true:
Tell me, what is the gospel according to you?

2012/11/02 -- Philemon 18

18 If he hath wronged thee, or oweth thee ought, put that on mine account; "If he hath wronged thee" translates εἰ δέ τι ἠδίκησέν σε (ei de ti ēdikēsen se). This is a first class conditional, i.e. it is assumed to be true. Also:

Paul asked Philemon to charge (elloga, an accounting term) Onesimus' financial obligation to Paul. This generous act compares in a small way with Christ's substitutionary work on the cross. As Onesimus was in debt to Philemon, so sinners are in debt; they must pay for their sins against God. As Paul was not involved in any way with Onesimus' guilt, so Christ was sinless, separate from sinners (Heb. 4:15; 7:25). And as Paul assumed Onesimus' debt, so Christ took on Himself the sins of the world (Isa. 53:6; John 1:29; Heb. 7:27; 9:26, 28). (Walvoord at Philemon 18).

Many hold that Onesimus stole something from Philemon when he ran away. That was common enough among runaway slaves at the time. But we don't know for sure: the Bible doesn't actually say he stole anything. Except, of course, he certainly stole the value of his services. Rupprecht writes, "... the loss may have been the result of the departure of a highly skilled slave from whose activities Philemon derived great income. In fact, slave prices in the Greco-Roman world were directly proportional to the skill and economic value of the slave. A common drudge brought only 500 denarii (a denarius was a laborer's ordinary daily wage), but skilled teachers, physicians, and actors were purchased for a hundred times as much." (Rupprecht, p. 462). And F. F. Bruce writes, "... restitution must be made; this was integral to the reconciliation which Paul was endeavoring to bring about. But Onesimus was in no position to make, or even to guarantee, restitution. No matter, says Paul to Philemon, 'whatever debt he owes you, put it down on my account.'" (Bruce, p. 220). Note how delicately Paul addresses this issue. He doesn't embarrass Onesimus by openly writing that he had stolen from Philemon. Instead Paul writes, "If he has wronged you... If he owes you anything..." Drysdale says:

The Christian fellowship may forgive and overlook much in the spirit of that charity which covers a multitude of sins; but it can never relax the bonds of moral obligation, nor connive at violations of right and duty ... The apostle now takes note of this aspect of the case, and provides the remedy. Philemon's just claims must be respected. His rights must be regarded. He must be guaranteed and indemnified against loss. (Drysdale at Philemon 18-19).

Charge That To My Account !! Some excerpts from Harry A. Ironside's 1931 sermon entitled "Charge That to My Account" provide a stirring tribute to Paul's offer:

Christianity did not immediately overturn the evil custom of slavery, although eventually it was the means of practically driving it out of the whole civilized world. It began by regulating the relation of master and slave, thus bringing untold blessing to those in bondage.... The Lord JESUS CHRIST Himself paid the debt that we owe to the infinite GOD, in order that when forgiveness came to us it would be on a perfectly righteous basis. Paul, who had himself been justified through the Cross, now says, "I will write a letter to Philemon, and undertake to become your surety. You go back to Philemon, and present my letter. You do not need to plead your own case; just give him my letter." .... Imagine Philemon standing on the portico of his beautiful residence, looking down the road, and suddenly exclaiming, "Why, who is that? It certainly looks like that scoundrel, Onesimus! But surely he would not have the face to come back. Still, it looks very much like him. I will just watch and wait." A little later, he says, "I declare, it is Onesimus! He seems to be coming to the house. I suppose he has had a hard time in the world. The stolen money is all gone, and now perhaps he is coming to beg for pardon." As he comes up the pathway, Onesimus calls, "Master, Master!" "Well, Onesimus, are you home again?" "Yes, Master, read this, please." No other word would Onesimus speak for himself; Paul's letter would explain all. Philemon takes the letter, opens it, and begins to read: "Paul, a prisoner of Jesus Christ." "Why Onesimus, where did you meet Paul? Did you see him personally?" "Yes, Master, in the prison in Rome; he led me to CHRIST." "Unto Philemon our dearly beloved, and fellowlabourer." "Little enough I have ever done, but that is just like Paul." .... What is this? "If he hath wronged thee, or oweth thee ought, put that on my account, I Paul have written it with mine own hand, I will repay it: albeit I do not say to thee how thou owest unto me even thine own self besides." Oh, I think in a moment Philemon was conquered. "Why," he says, "it is all out then. He has confessed his sin. He has acknowledged his thieving, owned his guilt, and, just think, Paul, that dear servant of GOD, suffering in prison for CHRIST's sake, says: "Put that on mine account." I will settle everything for him. Paul becomes his surety." It was just as though Paul should write today: "Charge that to my account!" ... Is not this a picture of the gospel? A picture of what the Saviour has done for every repentant soul? I think I see Him as he brings the needy, penitent sinner into the presence of GOD, and says, "My Father, he has wronged Thee, he owes Thee much, but all has been charged to My account. Let him go free." How could the Father turn aside the prayer of His Son after that death of shame and sorrow on Calvary's cross, when He took our blame upon Himself and suffered in our stead? (Ironside, accessed 2012/10/30).

In John 15:13, Jesus said, "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." Paul, here, is only offering to sacrifice part of his livelihood, rather than his actual life. But, elsewhere, he has, in fact, offered not only his life, but also his entire eternity. In Romans 9:3, Paul writes, "For I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh". And, this harks back to Moses' request to God in Exodus 32:32, "Yet now, if thou wilt forgive their sin--; and if not, blot me, I pray thee, out of thy book which thou hast written." Now, neither Paul nor Moses were qualified to be such sacrifices for their brethren. Sacrifices had to be perfect in order to be acceptable to God, who is, Himself, perfect and holy. Leviticus 22:21 says, "And whosoever offereth a sacrifice of peace offerings unto the LORD to accomplish his vow, or a freewill offering in beeves or sheep, it shall be perfect to be accepted; there shall be no blemish therein." Paul and Moses were both imperfect, sinful men. But, Jesus was perfect and sinless throughout His life on Earth. Hebrews 4:15 declares, "For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin." In Luke 5:8, Simon Peter recognized his own sinfulness in the face of Jesus' presence, when the disciples, at Jesus' command, caught so many fish that their boats were swamped. "When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord." John the Baptist declared that this sinless Jesus was the one who would free us from the bondage of our sin. In John 1:29, we read, "The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world." And God confirmed Jesus' right and authority to be the one and only eternally valid sacrifice for our sins with the greatest stamp of approval of all. Romans 1:4 declares that Jesus was "...declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead". Soro Soungalo sums up Paul's offer quite elegantly:

Paul's offer is a beautiful illustration of the doctrine of substitution. He offers to take the place of Onesimus, the runaway who may have stolen his master's goods. The apostle does not try to defend him. He does not try to explain or justify Onesimus' behavior. Instead he says, If he has done you any wrong ... charge it to me ... I will pay it back (18-19). And so that there may be no doubt about this, he personally signs the letter to guarantee his commitment. What an example! What love! Anyone wanting to bring about reconciliation must be ready to pay the price, to be personally involved. This is the way in which Christ takes on himself the debt of our sin. This is how God receives us as his own sons and daughters. What grace! (Soungalo, p. 1514).

2012/07/16 -- Romans 12:17-21

12:17-21. Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men. If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

John Piper calls the reason we tend to hold on to anger and bitterness the "Judicial Predicament", writing:

What gives so much force to the impulse of anger in such cases is the overwhelming sense that the offender does not deserve forgiveness. That is, the grievance is so deep and so justifiable that not only does self-righteousness strengthen our indignation, but so does a legitimate sense of moral outrage. It's the deep sense of legitimacy that gives our bitterness its unbending compulsion. We feel that a great crime would be committed if the magnitude of the evil we've experienced were just dropped and we let bygones be bygones. We are torn: Our moral sense says this evil cannot be ignored, and the Word of God says we must forgive....

Now we can see why the biblical promise of God's judgment is so crucial in helping overcome this craving for revenge. It gives us a way out of the "judicial predicament." God intervenes as the avenger so that we can acknowledge the crime; but also so that we don't have to be the judge. God's promised vengeance removes the moral legitimacy of our personal craving for retaliation. (Piper, Battling, 2007, pp. 108-109).

So much for the evil enemies who do us wrong. But, what about the hurts we receive at the hands of other Christians? Sometimes we find these to be even worse than the slings and arrows of our worst enemies; betrayals beyond comprehension. And, what about the things we ourselves do to others. The promise of God's vengeance might not seem to apply, because "There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit." (Romans 8:1). John Piper continues:

The answer is that we look to the cross of Christ. All the wrongs that have been done against us by believers were avenged in the death of Jesus. This is implied in the staggering fact that all the sins of all God's people were laid on Jesus (Isaiah 53:6; 1 Corinthians 15:3; Galatians 1:4; 1 John 2:2; 4:10; 1 Peter 2:24; 3:18). The suffering of Christ was the recompense of God on every hurt I have ever received from a fellow Christian (Romans 4:25; 8:3; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Galatians 3:13)....

Therefore, when God says, "Vengeance is mine," the meaning is more than we may have thought. God undertakes vengeance against sin not only by means of hell, but also by means of the cross. All sin will be avenged severely and thoroughly and justly. Either in hell, or at the cross. (Piper, Battling, 2007, pp. 112-113).

2012/07/13 -- Romans 1:8-10

1:8-10. First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world. For God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of his Son, that without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayers; Making request, if by any means now at length I might have a prosperous journey by the will of God to come unto you.

John Owen writes, "...in the Scripture there is mention made plainly of a twofold faith, whereby men believe the gospel. For there is a faith whereby we are justified, which he who has shall be assuredly saved; which purifies the heart and works by love. And there is a faith or believing, which does nothing of all this; which who has, and has no more, is not justified, nor can be saved. Wherefore, every faith, whereby men are said to believe, is not justifying. Thus it is said of Simon the magician, that he "believed," Acts 8:13, when he was in the 'gall of bitterness and bond of iniquity;' and therefore did not believe with that faith which 'purifieth the heart,' Acts 15:9." (Owen, Justification, 2006, Chapter 1).

Ephesians 2:8 reads, "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God".

Romans 10:9-10 says, "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."

2011/12/22 -- eBook Format bug

In testing the .pdf files on this site for use with eBook readers, I've discovered that, although the files work perfectly in the Adobe Reader, when they're called up into an eReader, their metadata is messed up: every one of them uses the first sentence of the "A Brief Survey of Textual Criticism" book as their title. The rest of each of the documents is fine - it's only the metadata titles which are messed up. So, I'm presently going through them all to correct this.

"And Zadok the priest took an horn of oil out of the tabernacle, and anointed Solomon. And they blew the trumpet; and all the people said, God save king Solomon. And all the people came up after him, and the people piped with pipes, and rejoiced with great joy, so that the earth rent with the sound of them." ( I Kings 1:39-40 ). One day, a greater King than Solomon will be coming back: King Jesus, the King of all creation. At Solomon's coronation, the people rejoiced with great joy. But, when King Jesus returns, our joy will know no bounds. Think of it. The mighty last trumpet will sound. All the cars and trucks and buses will end their frantic hurry. Shoppers will stop and look. The mighty cranes and derricks of the construction site will fall silent. The busy kitchens in all the homes will come to rest. And our Lord Jesus will come to us, descending from the clouds. We who have been redeemed by His blood will crowd forward to join Him. But we'll have to make room for all the rest of us who have just been resurrected. Our broken hearts will be mended. He will dry the tears from all our eyes. And we will be changed. We will be like Him, because we will see Him face-to-face. The King is coming, the King is coming I just heard the trumpet sounding and soon His face I'll see The King is coming, the King is coming Praise God, He's coming for me ( Bill Gaither )

Our joy will be complete! Oh, to contemplate the wonder of it all. As sleep closes gently over our tired bodies, we can murmur a final, "Even so. Come, Lord Jesus."

"And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement." (Romans 5:11). Having received the atonement, however, there are three things we must do in order to reap the full benefit of the joy which is described in this verse. We must "know", "reckon", and "yield". In Wiersbe's Expository Outlines on the New Testament (Wheaton: Victor Books, 1997; p. 383), Warren Wiersbe writes:

The Christian who deliberately yields himself to sin will commit sin and reap sorrow. Why should sin be our master when we have died to sin? Why must we be obedient to a master that has already been defeated by Christ? Christians who deliberately sin are people who have yielded themselves to the old nature instead of to the Holy Spirit. They are living beneath their exalted position in Christ. They are living like slaves when they could be reigning like kings. It is important that we keep these three steps in order. We cannot yield to God and get victory over the flesh unless we first reckon ourselves to be dead unto sin and alive in Christ. But we cannot reckon ourselves dead unless we know our position in Christ. Satan does not want us to live up to our high position in Jesus Christ, so he tries to confuse us about our victory in the Son of God. It is not enough to know that Christ died for us; we must also know that we died in Christ. It is not enough to know that we have new natures within; we must also know that the old nature was dealt with on the cross. Know-reckon-yield: these three steps lead to daily victory over the flesh. These three steps lead to the throne where Christ is exalted on high, and where (with Him) we "reign in life," servants of righteousness and not slaves of sin. We enjoy life and true freedom in Him.

we lay our heads on the pillow at the end of the day, our final prayer for the day might well be, "Father, I know I've died with Jesus, I do count it true that I'm therefore dead to sin; please strengthen me to yield to your will. And, please fill my soul with the joy you've promised me."

"But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God. "(Acts 20:24). The basis of our joy is the matchless grace of God. Sometime in the early 1970's George Sweeting, then the Pastor of Moody Memorial Church in Chicago, preached a sermon in which he compared happiness with joy. He said happiness is like the froth on top of the waves on the ocean. It appears and disappears with every wind of changing emotion. But, joy is like the deep ocean current which is constant, and just goes on and on, oblivious to the storms on the surface. How magnificent it is to be forgiven; to know that the Almighty God Himself loves you and has put all your sins and shortcomings behind him and will never look upon them ever again. How beyond description it is that He's clothed you in the righteousness of His Son Jesus.

Marvelous grace of our loving Lord,
Grace that exceeds our sin and our guilt,
Yonder on Calvary's mount outpoured,
There where the blood of the Lamb was spilt.
Grace, grace, God's grace,
Grace that will pardon and cleanse within!
Grace, grace, God's grace,
Grace that is greater than all our sin! (Julia H. Johnston)
Justified freely by God's grace. What a thought to drift off to dreamland with.

"Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen." (Jude 24-25). Herbert Lockyer writes, "For all who enquire after God, there is the promise of a new heart (Ezekiel 36:26, 27). There is a promise of wisdom for all who will search for it (Proverbs 2:4, 5). There is the promise of the Spirit for those who ask for Him (Luke 11:13). There is the promise of rest for all who labor and are heavy laden (Matthew 11:28). There is the promise of the increase of grace for those who persevere unto the end (John 15:16)." I Corinthians 2:9 says, "But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him." Think of it! Jesus is going to present you before the Throne of God, completely free from all of your sin and guilt. And He's going to do that with exceedingly great joy. In this life, God is making a new heart, wisdom, the Spirit Himself, rest, and increasing grace available to you. But, when this life is over, and you go home to be with Him in Heaven, He's going to spend all of eternity lavishing all the riches of His grace upon you ; marvelous gifts even beyond your wildest dreams. Sleep contentedly in His arms, drifting peacefully on a sea of grace.

2011/08/20 -- First Journal Entry

Well, I've got the TheologyFromBelow.org site up and running, at least in a basic and rudimentary fashion. In the coming week, I hope to add some reference details about myself and my doctrinal position, as well as contact and writer information pages.
