George C. Lubbers is a minister emeritus in the Protestant Reformed Churches. We now come to our consideration of Micah 6:6, 7. We wish to state at the very outset that these two verses are worthy of our careful consideration. The Word of God is worthy of being studied. Such study yields rich rewards. The verses here read as follows: “Wherewith shall I come before the Lord, and bow myself before the high God? shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves of a year old? Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams, or with ten thousands...

It is well that we have the words of Micah 6:8 clearly before our mind. The text reads as follows: “He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?” We should notice that the text contains one positive, strong assertion: “He hath shewed thee what is good.” The text ends with asking three things which show us really what are the particulars of the “good’ which the LORD has showed to Israel. In our former article we reflected just...

Rev. Lubbers is a minister emeritus in the Protestant Reformed Churches. And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not.  Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed.  Isaiah 6:9, 10 The Great Prophetic Message to This People These words which Isaiah must speak to Israel are indeed prophetic words. Of this there cannot be a shadow of doubt when...

From Paradise to Paradise (Gen. 3:16) If we believe all of the Scriptures we receive them as an organic unity, written by one Author, containing one central message concerning the Christ of God, and inspired by one Spirit. For all Scripture is given by inspiration; it is God-breathed (II Tim. 3:16). Besides, the Scriptures are often designated as being “the Scripture” (Mark 12:14; John 2:22; John 5:39; John 7:38, 42; John 10:35; John 13:18; John 17:12; John 19:24, 28, 36, 37; John 20:9; Acts 1:16;Acts 8:32; Rom. 4:3; Rom. 9:17; Rom. 10:11; Gal. 3:8, 22; Gal. 4:30; I Tim. 5:18; II Tim. 3:16; James 2:8, 23; James 4:5; I Pet. 2:6; II Peter 1:20). In perusing all these many, many...

THE SEED OF THIE WOMAN, by Arthur C. Custance, 580 pp. Available from Doorway Publishers, Box 291, Brockville, Ontario K6V 5V5. (Reviewed by Rev. George C. Lubbers.) Hem is a book which is written in a rather clear style and in a clear vocabulary. This book appeals to a critical and attentive reader who is willing to do just a bit of critical thinking. The book delves into the field both of biblical exegesis and of Nicean theology. We recommend this book to the observant reader. The title of this book is obviously derived from Genesis 3:16. This would lead the...

George C. Lubbers is a minister emeritus in the Protestant Reformed Churches. The Christian Wife Predicted (Gen. 3:16) At first hearing of these words from the lips of Jehovah to the woman who has so deeply fallen, having so grievously disobeyed God and her husband, we might receive the impression that they are the announcement of the death-knell to this helpmeet of Adam. Listen to the text from the lips of Jehovah God. The text reads: “. . . thy desire shall be to they husband, and he shall rule over thee” (Gen. 3:16b). Surely we cannot interpret these words...

George C. Lubbers is a minister emeritus in the Protestant Reformed Churches. It is well to grasp at the outset the central point of our subject. There are the terms “regeneration” and “sinlessness.” The term regeneration refers to the initial implanting of the elect sinner, dead in trespasses and sins, making him alive with Christ. This term is also called being born again, or to be born from above, or born anew (John 3:3). It is to be born of water and of the Spirit; thus only can a man or woman enter the kingdom of heaven! The term “sinlessness”...

It is the Lord (John 21:7) What a wonderful, brief confession and joyful recognition on the part of the beloved disciple of the Lord. This disciple was the writer of this Gospel. He ever stays on the background! He is John! The Greek text can very well be translated “the Lordis He.” it is unmistakably the Lord Himself. It is the Lord of glory who stands there on the shores of Galilee in the early morning mists. This hiddenness is part of the “third manifestation.” He is the Lord of glory, risen from the dead; He is on the way to be...

Rev. Lubbers is a minister emeritus in the Protestant Reformed Churches. I am indebted to the committee in charge of arranging for a special feature on “Missions,” for thinking to request me to write some “reflections.” It is now some sixteen years ago that Mrs. Lubbers and I left the last mission field where we might serve, to wit, Jamaica. In the kind providence of God we had served also as a missionary of our churches for some nine years in the States. We first became missionaries in January of 1955, some 35 years ago. To be sure we have...
