DevotionalTHE ROCK THAT IS HIGHER THAN I
      Psal 61:2 From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock [that] is higher than I. Read the rest of this heart-cry of David to the Lord and then you will know why he reached out to the "Rock That Was Higher" than himself. The lesson here is simple. We must lay hold of something or someone w ...read
DevotionalThe Root of David
      "Weep not; behold the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed." Revelation 5:5 King David was the representative of Royalty; Moses of the Law; Abraham of the Promises. Here, Christ is seen in relation to His throne and kingdom rights. "A Root" from the stem, or branch of David (Isaiah 11:1). "And there shall come f ...read
DevotionalTHE ROOT OF JESSE
      Isai 11:10 And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious. {glorious: Heb. glory} How the names and titles given to our Lord multiply as we go through the prophesy of Isaiah! In the first verse of this chapter we viewed Him as "A Ro ...read
DevotionalTHE ROSE OF SHARON
      Song 2:1 I [am] the rose of Sharon, [and] the lily of the valleys. The "Rose of Sharon" was, in reality, just a flower of the field; not distinguished; a lowly but a lovely flower. How marvelous that the Holy Spirit, then, should apply this title to our Lord Who "made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of a servant". Pa ...read
DevotionalTHE SALVATION OF GOD
      Luke 2:30 For mine eyes have seen thy salvation, Luke 3:6 And all flesh shall see the salvation of God. The aged saint Simeon, standing in the temple, took the child Jesus in his arms, and, looking into His face, lifted his eyes to heaven and said: "Lord, now lettest thy servant depart in peace, according to thy Word; for mine eyes have see ...read
DevotionalThe Savior of the World
      "And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Savior of the world." 1 John 4:14 A lost and ruined world, bound by the shackles of sin, dominated by the demon Satan, helpless and hopeless! What can be done? Only God, the Sovereign against whom the world has sinned, can solve the question and He has. He sent His Son ...read
DevotionalThe Seed of Abraham
      "For verily He took not on Him the nature of angels; but He took on Him the seed of Abraham." Hebrews 2:16 This suggestive title surely draws a picture well worthy our consideration. Why did He not take on Himself the nature of angels? Do not the fallen angels need help? Are they inferior to men? Will they evolve into good angels? No, but ...read
DevotionalTHE SEED OF WOMAN
      Gene 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. The third chapter of Genesis furnishes the foundation of the history of the world, the history of sin, and the historic Promise of God concerning the coming of "the Seed of the Woman," who ...read
DevotionalThe Sent of the Father
      "As Thou hast sent Me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world." John 17:18 From the glory which He had with the Father before the world was, He was sent into this world of sin and shame to redeem sinful men. He was God's Apostle- God's "Sent One." His prayer now to the Father is that they might be sanctified (set a ...read
DevotionalTHE SERVANT OF JEHOVAH
      Matt 12:18 Behold my servant, whom I have chosen; my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my spirit upon him, and he shall shew judgment to the Gentiles. Jesus, the prophesied Servant! Isaiah had portrayed Him. Jehovah had chosen Him. All of God's ways were known unto Him from the beginning. You hear the echo of His voice, \ ...read
DevotionalTHE SHADOW OF A GREAT ROCK
      Isai 32:2 And a man shall be as an hiding place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest; as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land. {great: Heb. heavy} Our Lord Jesus is not only a "Hiding Place from the Wind", but "The Shadow of a Great Rock" in a weary land. We have here a picture of the East ...read
DevotionalTHE SHEPHERD OF ISRAEL
      Psal 80:1 Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, thou that leadest Joseph like a flock; thou that dwellest [between] the cherubims, shine forth. {of: or, for} To whom could this title refer save to Jesus Christ? We read in Ezk 34:23: "And I will set up one Shepherd over them, and he shall feed them; even my servant David." Our Lord was of the fam ...read
DevotionalThe Sin Purger
      "Who...when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty of high" Hebrews 1:3 How lightly we think of sin. It is so common that we fail to view it is God's light. "Coming short of the glory of God" is sin. Sin has never changed because human nature has never changed. Every child born into this world is bo ...read
DevotionalThe Son
      "And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Savior of the world." 1 John 4:14 The apostle John is making full proof of his ministry. He is testifying to the truth from his own personal experience, conscious that he is indwelt by the Spirit and has the new nature. He says that the Son was sent for one specific pu ...read
DevotionalTHE SON OF DAVID
      Matt 1:1 The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham. Our Lord was a lineal descendant of David, the King. This entitled Him to the right of sovereignty over David's land, and when He was here among men, we are told, there was no other claimant to the throne of David. Herod sought to destroy the Child-Ki ...read
DevotionalTHE SON OF GOD
      John 1:34 And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God. John had not known Him as the Messiah although he did know Him to be Mary's Son [his cousin]. But when the Holy Spirit descended upon Jesus at His baptism, John knew Him as the Son of God and bore record to the fact. The testimony of John the Baptist is clear! Jesus is God's ...read
DevotionalTHE SON OF MARY
      Mark 6:3 Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him. {offended: scandalized in, or, by him, to stumble because of him} The Carpenter, the "Son of Mary", has come back to His home town from an evangelistic trip in wh ...read
DevotionalThe Son of the Father
      "Grace be with you, and mercy, and peace, from God the Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love." 2 John 3 Here is a three-fold blessing bestowed by John: "Grace, mercy and peace from the Son of the Father." This is the testimony of the Father: "This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased" a ...read
DevotionalTHE SON OF THE HIGHEST
      Luke 1:32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: This is the message of the angel to Mary and here is a remarkable coincidence. In Mark 5:7, we have the evil spirit in the man in the tombs giving a similar title to Jesus, "Son of the Most High God" ...read
DevotionalTHE STONE OF ISRAEL
      Gene 49:24 But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty [God] of Jacob; (from thence [is] the shepherd, the stone of Israel:) Jacob is on his deathbed. His thoughts are going back to his flight from the wrath of his brother Essau, when --- as the sun went down --- he took of the stones ...read
