#245 – Let A Man Examine Himself

LET A MAN EXAMINE HIMSELF 1 Cor. 11:28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. Psalms 139:23 24, "Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting." David was a man after God’s own heart. He was anything but perfect but he knew where to go when he needed forgiveness. He invited God to “Search me . . . and know my heart. The words “my heart” and...


#244 – Seven Characteristics that Contributed to Calebs Greatness

SEVEN CHARACTERISTICS THAT CONTRIBUTED TO CALEB’S GREATNESS Herbert Lockyer said, “Although Caleb was not an Israelite by birth, he was “an Israelite indeed.” He was one of the chief spies sent out by Moses. He was courageous and persevered when the other spies became discouraged. He was invincible in driving out giants completely devoted to God and vigorous in old age. Six times it is recorded of Caleb, “he hath fully followed the Lord.” Caleb fully followed the Lord. He led nothing...


#243 – God Speaks to Joshua About the Enemy

GOD SPEAKS TO JOSHUA ABOUT THE ENEMY Josh. 1:5 “There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.” Israel had not done much fighting for the past forty years . . . except among themselves. That is not the kind of training one needs to defeat the Amalekites and the Canaanites. However, there is no instruction for training for fighting even though God sends them against the...


#242 – The Failure of the Ten Spies

THE FAILURE OF THE TEN SPIES Num. 13:1-3 “And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Send thou men, that they may search the land of Canaan, which I give unto the children of Israel: of every tribe of their fathers shall ye send a man, every one a ruler among them. And Moses by the commandment of the LORD sent them from the wilderness of Paran: all those men were heads of the children of Israel.” I want us to take a brief look at Israel at Kadesh-barnea. To do this I will use all of chapter...


#241 – What in the World is Happening in Prophecy

WHAT IN THE WORLD IS HAPPENING IN PROPHECY? 2 Tim. 3:1 “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.” The first thing we will look at in this passage is to, IDENTIFYING PERILOUS TIMES The word “know” is the translation of a word that means to come to know. It is a present imperative verb. Paul is saying that one needs to come to know right now. The imperative mood is a command expressing urgency. We can know something of the times in which we live because God has...


#240 – The Unction and Anointing of the Holy Spirit

THE UNCTION AND THE ANOINTING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT 1 John 2:20, 27 “But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things . . . But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.” A lot will be left unsaid about this subject because of the nature of the meditations. I would like to look at...


#239 – Filled With The Spirit

FILLED WITH THE SPIRIT John 7:37 39 "In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified)" There is no doctrine that is more sorely misused that the...


#237 – Four Scriptural Guidelines for Living

FOUR SCRIPTURAL GUIDELINES FOR LIVING Col. 3:15-17 "And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him." Paul calls attention to...


#236 – We Learn from the Wise Men

WE LEARN FROM THE WISE MEN Matt. 2:1-2 “Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.” Matthew begins to describe what happened after the birth of Jesus. He was not welcomed by Israel as a nation. Herod, when he heard of the birth of Christ, killed all the children that might qualify...


#235 – A Great Deliverance

A GREAT DELIVERANCE Psa. 18:16-20 "He sent from above, he took me, he drew me out of many waters. He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them which hated me: for they were too strong for me. They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but the LORD was my stay. He brought me forth also into a large place; he delivered me, because he delighted in me. The LORD rewarded me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands hath he recompensed me." This is one of...

#234 – Some of the Rich Blessings of God in Ephesians

SOME OF THE RICH BLESSINGS OF GOD IN EPHESIANS Ephesians 1:6 "To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved." Each of these gold mines of blessing are connected with the Greek preposition “in.” The first that we will look at is, OUR ACCEPTANCE "To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved." “The uttermost and chiefest final cause is the glory of God the Father, who saves us freely in his Son. That...

#233 – The Servant

THE SERVANT Mark 10:44 "And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all." I think many Christians want an elevated position in the Lord's spiritual kingdom in this life. Jesus made it clear that the servant is not one who gets recognition in this life. Jesus says in Mark 10:44, "And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all." This meditation will look at some qualifying statements that will identify a servant. THE LOVE OF CHRIST SHOULD BE THE...

#232 – Quietness Before God

QUIETNESS BEFORE GOD Psalms 37:1-7 “Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be […] The post #232 – Quietness Before God appeared first on The Morning Meditation.


#231 – The Work of the Holy Spirit in the Saints

THE WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT IN THE SAINTS Romans 8:9 “But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.” Man by his human nature was so […] The post #231 – The Work of the Holy Spirit in the Saints appeared first on The Morning Meditation.


#230 – A Fourfold Fellowship

A FOURFOLD FELLOWSHIP The little book of Philemon is packed with great truths. Philemon was a resident of Colossae. This is a prison epistle. Onesimus was a runaway slave and had robbed his master in his departure. He wound up in prison with Paul. Paul won Onesimus to the Lord and sent him back to […] The post #230 – A Fourfold Fellowship appeared first on The Morning Meditation.


#229 – The Ministry of John the Baptist – Part 4

THE MINISTRY OF JOHN THE BAPTIST – Part 4 Matt. 3:13-17 “Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him. But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?

#228 – The Ministry of John the Baptist – Part 3

THE MINISTRY OF JOHN THE BAPTIST – Part 3 Matt. 3:11-12 “I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire: Whose fan is in his hand, and […] The post #228 – The Ministry of John the Baptist – Part 3 appeared first on The Morning Meditation.


#227 – The Ministry of John the Baptist – Part 2

THE MINISTRY OF JOHN THE BAPTIST – Part 2 Matt. 3:3 “For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.” John’s ministry was a part of God’s unfolding plan. John was a […] The post #227 – The Ministry of John the Baptist – Part 2 appeared first on The Morning Meditation.


#226 – The Ministry of John the Baptist – Part 1

THE MINISTRY OF JOHN THE BAPTIST – Part 1 Matt. 3:1 “In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” John Gill says in his introduction to this chapter: “The Evangelist having given an account of the genealogy and […] The post #226 – The Ministry of John the Baptist – Part 1 appeared first on The Morning Meditation.


#225 – Pauls Prayer and Desire for the Phillippians

PAUL’S PRAYER-DESIRE FOR THE PHILIPPIANS Phil. 1:9-11 “And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment; That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ; Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which […] The post #225 – Pauls Prayer and Desire for the Phillippians appeared first on The Morning Meditation.
