Worthy Love

RR-September 15, 2016     By John Rogers   Psalm 97:10 tells us, “Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.” The unregenerate cannot love their neighbors. For a while they are kind to their bodies, yet they have…

God’s Eternal Decree

RR-September 14, 2016     By William MacLean, from “Arminian Errors”   The ninth chapter of Romans is the Holy Spirit’s commentary on the eternal decrees of God.

The Miracle Book

CH-September 14, 2016     By David R. Reid   2 Peter 1:19-21 – We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: Knowing this…

Meditations on Ephesians

MTLB-Sep.13-Sep.15, 2016     By Henry Law   Ephesians 2:3. “Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.” Our original state is again represented.
