In Your Heart

In Your Heart

Oh, God, our Spiritual Life is not what it should be!

May God Work that in your heart.

Saved

Saved

The spirit is Saved BECAUSE Christ Lays Down His Life for me;

The soul is Saved BECAUSE I Deny myself and Follow the Lord.

The spirit is Saved on the basis of Faith: once having Believe, the matter is forever settled, never again to be shaken.

The soul is Saved on the basis of Following: it is a lifelong matter, a Course to be Finished.

Oil must be Bought.

To be Filled with the Holy Spirit is NOT something you can decide.

Sooner or later you MUST be Filled with the Holy Spirit.

Do not think that those who are like the Five Wise have gone to an extreme.

One day God will force you to go to such an extreme.

But be Filled with the Spirit, Ephesians 5.18, is a Command!

And So It is with Jesus!!!

And So It is with Jesus!!!

Does it weary the traveler to rest in the house or on the bed where he seeks repose from his fatigue?

Or is it a labor to a little child to rest in its mother’s arms?

Is it not the house that keeps the traveler within its shelter? do not the arms of the mother sustain and keep the little one?

AND SO IT IS with Jesus!!!

The soul has but to Yield itself to Him, to be Still and Rest in the Confidence that His Love has Undertaken, and that His Faithfulness will Perform, the Work of Keeping it Safe in the Shelter of His Bosom.

Seen From Within

Only Seeing in the Holy Spirit can cause a sinner to Truly Believe and Receive the Lord Jesus as Savior.

This is because you can never Believe in what you have not Seen, and you can never Receive what you do not See.

Because you have Seen from Within, you Believe.

ONLY This Kind of Faith is Unmovable.

ONLY This will Withstand trials and trails.

Through the Light of God

Every sinner is blind, and, this kind of blindness keeps him from Seeing the True Light of the Gospel of God.

The Holy Spirit Opens the sinner’s eyes through the Light of God, Enabling him to See the Light of God.

Seeing is a Special Blessing in the New Testament.

God Reveals His Son in me.

This is an experience common to EVERY Saved sinner.

That You Pray

In the degree that you Pray you will Receive the Spirit.

The Truth Remains

The Truth Remains

What a prospect before me – every anxiety exchanged for the Peace of God.

We can Know that even when the answer is long delayed and there is a call for Patient, Persevering Prayer, the Truth remains Infallibly Sure – God will Hear me.

He Hears Me

He Hears Me

  • by

Commonplace and insignificant though I am, I have Access to this Infinite God with the Confidence that He Hears me.

I will Pray for others for I am sure my God will Listen to me; my God will Hear me.

Lack of This Faith

Lack of This Faith

  • by

God will hear me!!!

What a Blessed Prospect!

The failures of my past life have been due to lack of This Faith.

I did not Live in the Full Faith of the Assurance that God will hear me!

I begin to See It and Believe it.

All can be different.

Praying

Praying

What one person is unable to do in certain respects is to be done through Mutual and Corporate Help.

Especially in the matter of Prayer, there is the need for Mutuality.

All who Follow the Lord Closely frequently see the need of Praying with other Believers.

GALATIANS 3:2-3
Let me ask you only this: Did you receive the Spirit by works of the law or by hearing with faith? Are you so foolish? Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by the flesh?

=====

MATTHEW 11:28-30
Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

=====

EPHESIANS 3:14-19
For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

=====

MATTHEW 21:13
He said to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you make it a den of robbers.”

HEBREWS 3:6
but Christ is faithful over God’s house as a son. And we are his house, if indeed we hold fast our confidence and our boasting in our hope.
