Monday, June 27, 2016 6:34 PM True knowledge of God by chestnutmare

"Now that which is implied in and required unto a real love to God is, first, a true knowledge of Him. If our apprehensions of God are wrong, if they are not formed by Scripture, then it is obvious we have but a false image of Him, framed by our own fancy. By a true knowledge of God (John 17:3; I John 5:20) we mean far more than a correct theoretical notion of His perfections: there must be a heartfelt realization of His personal loveliness, His ineffable glory. And where that truly exists, there will be a delighting of ourselves in Him (Ps. 37:4) and a desire and a determination to please Him. And self-love naturally causes us to magnify self and seek to promote our own interests, so a true love to God causes us to put Him first and seek His interests." ~ A.W. Pink

Monday, June 27, 2016 2:44 PM First Rain by Meta4

When I first heard put forth the idea that the flood was the first time that it had rained upon the earth, I found it amusing. I was very young in the faith at the time.

But over the next few years, as I matured in the faith, I came to believe it to be true. Not through outside influences or resources, nor through studying that particular subject, but just through my daily Bible study.

And these many years later, I still do believe it, though I am not adamant about it. What do others here think about the idea?

Monday, June 27, 2016 8:53 AM Christian fellowship and society by chestnutmare

If mortification be the great business of a Christian,
then Christian fellowship and society duly managed and improved,
must needy be of singular use and special advantage to the people of
God. For thereby we have the friendly help and assistance of many
other hands to carry on our great design, and help us in our most
difficult business; if corruption be too hard for us, others this
way come in to our assistance, Gal. 6: 1. "Brethren, if a man be
overtaken in a fault, you which are spiritual restore such an one in
the spirit of meekness." If temptations prevail, and overbear us
that we fall under sin, it is a special mercy to have the reproofs
and counsels of our brethren, who will not suffer sin to rest upon
us, Lev. 19: 17. While we are sluggish and sleepy, others are
vigilant and careful for our safety: The humility of another
reproves and mortifies my pride: The activity and liveliness of
another awakens and quickens my deadness: The prudence and gravity
of another detects and cures my levity and vanity: The heavenliness
and spirituality of another may be exceeding useful, both to reprove
and heal the earthliness and sensuality of my heart. Two are better
than one, but woe unto him that is alone. The devil is well aware of
this great advantage, and therefore strikes with special malice
against embodied Christians, who are as a well disciplined army,
whom he therefore more especially endeavors to rout and scatter by
persecutions, that thereby particular Christians may be deprived of
the sweet advantages of mutual society.

Monday, June 27, 2016 12:24 AM Repentance by Mckinley

''How happy it would be, if we were more deeply affected with sin, and our eyes did swim in tears of repentance. We may clearly see the Spirit of God moving in the waters of repentance, which though troubled, are yet pure. Moist tears of repentance dry up sin—and quench the wrath of God. Repentance is the nourisher of piety, the procurer of mercy. The more regret and trouble of spirit we have first at our conversion, the less we shall feel afterwards.''.. Thomas Watson

Saturday, June 25, 2016 6:06 AM Originally, man was made… by chestnutmare

Originally, man was made in the image and likeness of God, but today we are asked to believe in a god made in the image and likeness of man. The Creator is reduced to the level of the creature: His omniscience is called into question, His omnipotency is no longer believed in, and His absolute sovereignty flatly denied. Men claim to be the architects of their own fortunes and the determiners of their own destiny. They know not that their lives are at the disposal of the Divine Despot. They know not that "The Lord hath prepared His throne in the heavens; and His kingdom ruleth over all" (Ps. 103:19).

~ A. W. Pink
The Sovereignty of God, p.185
