Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead. Col 2:12 Christ your all! The great, the glorious, the mighty Christ, the Lord rich over all, the heavenly Christ your all! He, Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature and the firstborn of the dead, by Whom all things are created and reconciled, things that are in heaven and things that are on the earth, things visible and invisible,—your all! For in Christ ye are complete!...

One of the most serious objections to the theory of common grace is that it instils in men’s minds wrong thoughts of God. According to this theory God is a friend of all men, of the reprobated as well as of the elect. The former, too, God loves and blesses. How thoroughly wrong this doctrine is seen to be when viewed in the light of the truth of Scripture. Prayed the psalmist, “who shall ascend into the holy hill of the Lord? or who shall stand in His holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who...

And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on Him. . . . But the other answering rebuked him. . . And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. Luke 23:39-43.

Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, land to enter into His glory? Luke 24:26. It was towards evening; the day was far spent when the two disciples reached Emmaus; yet there may have been time enough for them, after they had dined, to return by daylight to Jerusalem (a distance of about seven miles, a two or three hour’s walk) and to be present at that evening meeting, in the midst of which Jesus was seen by them once more. It must have been between mid-day and sunset that the journey to Emmaus had been taken. Of the...

The eleventh Psalm is Davidic; the superscription tells us so. But when we inquire after the time of its composition and the circumstances referred to in the Psalm we cannot come to absolute certainty. There are those, among whom the learned Deitzsch, who think that the circumstances described in this Psalm refer to the perilous time of Absalom’s conspiracy to grasp the reins of government. In support of their exegesis they point to the third verse that speaks of foundations which are being destroyed and point out that this refers to the foundations of government and further that only during...
