    How Are Men Justified – Works Or Atonement – Spiritual Reading

    How Are Men Justified – Works Or Atonement – Spiritual Reading. In general there are two opposing views of justification: one that men are justified by their own works, i.e., on the ground of something which they do themselves. This view may be variously expressed. The good works that men speak of as a ground of their justification may be their good moral conduct, or their keeping the Golden Rule, or something of that sort. Or they may be works of religion, such as doing penance, saying prayers, joining the church, going to church, being baptised, or partaking of the Lord’s Supper, or the performance of some other religious duties.…

    For I Will Forgive Their Iniquity – Forgiveness Bible Verses. No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says the Lord. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.” Jeremiah 31:34 Then Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.” And they divided His garments and cast lots. 34 Then Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.” Luke 23:34  But Joshua said to the people, “You cannot serve…

    What Is Justification By Faith – Spiritual Reading

    What Is Justification By Faith – Spiritual Reading. The first thing for us to understand clearly is what justification is. It is at this point that many go astray in their study of this great truth. There are two fundamentally different definitions of the meaning of the words “justify” and “justification.” The one definition of Justify is, to make righteous, and of Justification, the being made righteous. The other definition of “justify” is, to reckon, declare, or show to be righteous, and of “justification,” the being declared or reckoned righteous. On these two different definitions two different schools of thought depart from one another. Which is the true definition? The way to settle the…

    What Is The Extent Of Justification In Jesus Christ – Spiritual Reading

    What Is The Extent Of Justification In Jesus Christ – Spiritual Reading. To what extent is a man who believes in the Lord Jesus justified? This question is very plainly answered and wonderfully answered, and gloriously answered in Acts 13:38, 39, “Be it known unto you therefore, brethren, that through this man is proclaimed unto you remission of sins: and by him every one that believeth is justified from all things, from which he could not be justified by the law of Moses.”  These words very plainly declare to us that every believer in Jesus Christ is justified “from all things.” In other words, the old account against the believer is all…

    What Is Your Confirmation Of Faith – Spiritual Reading

    What Is Your Confirmation Of Faith – Spiritual Reading. I want you to notice the security which Paul confidently expected for all the saints. He says–“Who shall confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.” This is the kind of confirmation which is above all things to be desired. You see it supposes that the persons are right, and it proposes to confirm them in the right. It would be an awful thing to confirm a man in ways of sin and error. Think of a confirmed drunkard, or a confirmed thief, or a confirmed liar. It would be a…

    Is God A Spiritual Entity Or A Physical Entity – Spiritual Reading

    Is God A Spiritual Entity Or A Physical Entity – Spiritual Reading. First of all “God is Spirit.” This we read in our first text: John 4:24, “God is Spirit.” You will note that in your Bible, both the Authorised and Revised Versions, you read, “God is a Spirit.” But there is no indefinite article in the Greek language, and wherever it is necessary in the English translation to fit the English idiom, it has to be supplied, and it is supplied, in this case. But there is really no reason for supplying it here any more than there is for supplying it in 1 John 4:8 and translating, “God is a Love,” or in 1 John 1:5…

    At What Time Is A Believer And Christian Justified – Spiritual Reading

    At What Time Is A Believer And Christian Justified – Spiritual Reading. The Time Of Justification: When is a believer justified? This question is answered plainly in one of our texts, Acts 13:39, “And by him every one that believeth is justified from all things, from which he could not be justified by the law of Moses.” What I wish you to notice particularly now in this verse is the word Is, “Everyone that believeth is justified from all things.” This answers plainly the question as to when a believer is justified. In Christ Jesus every [believer in Him is justified from all things the moment he believes. The moment a man believes in Jesus Christ that…

Is the lake of fire a place of conscious torment, or is it a place of annihilation, i.e A place of non-existence or is it a place of non conscious existence? There is one other question that remains to be answered, and that is, is the lake of fire a place of conscious torment, or is it a place of annihilation, i.e., a place of non-existence, or is it a place of non-conscious existence?

One short sight of his career is all we have. He burst in upon the scene and then disappears. THE EASTERN FEAST. We are told that he made a great feast to a thousand of his lords, and drank wine before them. In those days a feast would sometimes last for six months in Eastern countries.

    Are Hell And Hades The Same Place – Spiritual Reading. Hell and Hades are not the same. First of all, in order to clear the way for the study of what Jesus says on this subject, let me call your attention to the fact that Hell and Hades are not the same. There are numerous places in the Authorised Version where we find the word “Hell” but where that word does not occur in the Revised Version, and where the word “Hades” is substituted for the word “Hell.” The Revised Version is right at that point, as every Greek scholar knows. Hades is not Hell. “Hades” is the Greek equivalent of…

    What Is The Relationship Between God And The World And The Men He Created – Spiritual Reading. We turn now to a consideration of the present relation of this Personal God presented to us in the Bible, to the world He has created and to the men whom He has created. 1. In the first place we find that God sustains, governs and cares for the world He has created. He shapes the whole present history of the world. This comes out again and again. A few illustrations must suffice. We read in Ps. 104:27-30: “These wait all for thee, that thou mayest give them their food in due season. (28) Thou givest unto them,…

Whose son is He?”—Matt. 22:41, 42. The question that our Lord Jesus here puts to the Pharisees is the most fundamental question concerning Christian thought and faith that can be put to anybody in any age. Jesus Christ Himself is the centre of Christianity, so the most fundamental questions of faith are those that concern the person of Christ. If a man really holds right views concerning the person of Jesus Christ he will sooner or…

The next thing to be noted about the Christian conception of God is, that God is perfect and infinite in all His intellectual and moral attributes and in power. 1. First of all, fix your attention upon our first text: “God is Light”  (1 John 1:5). These three words form a marvellously beautiful and overwhelmingly impressive statement of the truth. They set forth the Absolute Holiness and Perfect Wisdom of God. The words need rather to be meditated upon than to be expounded. “In Him is no darkness at all.” That is to say, in Him is no…

    Is There One God Or More | The Trinity – Spiritual Reading. One more fact about the Christian conception of God remains to be mentioned and that is: There is but one God. The Unity of God comes out again and again in both the Old Testament and the New. For example, we read in Deut. 4:35: “Jehovah he is God. There is none else beside him.”  And in Deut. 6:4 we read: “Hear O Israel: Jehovah our God is one Jehovah.” Turning to the New Testament in 1 Tim. 2:5 we read: “There is one God, one mediator also between God and man, himself man, Christ Jesus.” And in Mark 12:29 our Lord Jesus Himself says: “Hear O Israel, the…

Now to the married I command, yet not I but the Lord: A wife is not to depart from her husband. 11 But even if she does depart, let her remain unmarried or be reconciled to her husband. And a husband is not to divorce his wife. 1 Corinthians 7:10-11 So He said to them, “Whoever divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery against her. 12 And if a woman divorces her husband and marries another, she commits adultery.” Mark 10:11-12 They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered…

    Why Are Christians And Believers Saved By Faith – Spiritual Reading

    Why Are Christians And Believers Saved By Faith – Spiritual Reading. Why is faith selected as the channel of salvation? No doubt this inquiry is often made. “By grace are ye saved through faith,” is assuredly the doctrine of Holy Scripture, and the ordinance of God; but why is it so? Why is faith selected rather than hope, or love, or patience? It becomes us to be modest in answering such a question, for God’s ways are not always to be understood; nor are we allowed presumptuously to question them. Humbly we would reply that, as far as we can tell, faith has been selected as the channel of grace,…

What Is this faith concerning which it is said, “By grace are ye saved, through faith?” There are many descriptions of faith; but almost all the definitions I have met with have made me understand it less than I did before I saw them. The Negro said, when he read the chapter, that he would confound it; and it is very likely that he did so, though he meant to expound it. We may explain faith till nobody understands it. I hope I shall not be guilty of that fault. Faith is the simplest of all things, and perhaps…

This is not so vital a question as the question, is there a literal hell, but nevertheless it is an important question, and I believe the question is plainly answered in the Bible, and plainly answered by Jesus Christ Himself.  To turn again to the passage already referred to, Matt. 5:22, we read: “But I say unto you, that every one who is angry with his brother shall be in danger of the judgment; and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council; and whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger…

We now come to the question about which there has been the most discussion, the most differences of opinion, the most controversy. When does sanctification take place? If we will go to our Bibles to get the answer to the question there need be no difference of opinion. There are three parts to the answer. 1. The first part of the answer is found in:  I Cor. 1:2, “Unto the Church of God, which is at Corinth, even them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that call upon the name of our Lord Jesus…

This comes out in our second text, 1 John 3:8: “The devil sinneth.” Only a person can sin. When we say that the Devil is a person we do not mean that necessarily he has a body, certainly not such a body as he is pictured as having in various paintings and engravings that are supposed to represent the Devil.

We read in 1 John 2:2, “He is the propitiation for our sins; and not for ours only, but also for the whole world.” This plainly means that by the death of Jesus Christ a basis is provided upon which God can deal in mercy and does deal in mercy with the whole world. All of God’s dealings in mercy with any man are on the ground of Christ’s death. Only on the ground of Christ’s death could God…

They have despaired, because this change is beyond their utmost effort. The new birth is from above, and therefore it is not in the creature’s power.

The first thing that the Bible teaches on this point and claims for itself is, that the work of the Holy Spirit in apostles and prophets, in the various [human authors of the different books of the Bible, differs from His work in other men, even in other believers in Christ.

While God is in all things, He is a personality distinct from the persons and things in which He is, which He has created.

But the reality and completeness of our Lord’s human nature comes out not only in the fact that He had a human parentage and a human body: we are also clearly taught that, while as God he possessed all the attributes and exercised all the offices of Deity, as a man He was subject to human limitations. 1. He was subject to the physical limitations which are essential to humanity:  In John 4:6 we read that Jesus Christ was weary.

    Should Forgiveness Of Sins Go With Repentance – Spiritual Reading

    Should Forgiveness Of Sins Go With Repentance – Spiritual Reading. It is Clear from the text which we have lately quoted that repentance is bound up with the forgiveness of sins.

Repentance must go with remission, and you will see that it is so if you think a little upon the…

    Who Is The Real Speaker In Prophetic Utterances | The Holy Spirit Or The Prophet – Spiritual Reading. The thing that the Bible teaches regarding the Inspiration of the Prophets and the Apostles and their utterances, is that the Holy Spirit was the real speaker in the prophetic utterances, that what was said or written was the Holy Spirit’s Word that was upon the Apostle’s tongue, and not the word of the Prophet or Apostle. This is said in the Bible in so many words, over and over again. For example, in Heb. 3:7 we read: “Wherefore, even as the Holy Spirit saith, To-day if ye shall hear His voice, harden not your hearts,…

We find this stated practically in so many words in 2 Pet. 1:21 where we read: “For no prophecy (literally, not a prophecy) ever came (literally, was brought) by the will of man; but men spake from God being moved (literally,…

First of all, the Bible distinctly and repeatedly tells us by direct statement, and by countless typical reference in the Old Testament, that He died as a vicarious offering for sin; that is, that He, an absolutely perfect, righteous one, who [deserved to live, died in the place of unjust men who deserved to die. For example, we read in Isa. 53:5, “But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed.” And in the eighth verse we read, “By oppression and judgment He was taken…
