The prophecy of judgment. The divine mission of Ezekiel. The vision of the glory of Jehovah. In the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, in the fifth day of the month, as the prophet was by the captives by the river Chebar, the heavens were opened, and he saw visions of God. In the fifth day of the month, which was the fifth year of the king Jehoiachim’s captivity, the word of the Lord came unto the prophet Ezekiel, the priest, the son of Buzi, in the land of the Chaldeans by the river Chebar. Vision of the four cherubims....

“Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.” Phil. 4:6, 7 ‘‘Be careful for nothing.” This statement from the apostle’s pen is equivalent in meaning to the one just previously made, “Rejoice in the Lord alway,” the only difference being that the one is negative and the other positive. “Be careful in nothing,” or, as we of this day say, “Do not worry.” We understand the apostle, to be...

At Numbers 14:34 the statement occurs, “And ye shall know my hostility (erroneously translated, “And ye shall know my breach of promise”). The pronoun ye has reference to the apostate Israelites, who in the carnal rage had wanted to know why the Lord had brought them to the border of Canaan that they, their wives and their children, should be a prey. The notice, “And ye shall know my hostility,” must be taken to mean that the Lord would be continually against the apostates, would pursue them with His curse, until the carcasses of them all be wasted in the...

Our Heidelberg Catechism is part of our Reformed heritage. It belongs to the Reformed Symbols or Confessions. The other parts, that with the Heidelberger constitute the Three Forms of Unity, are the Nether- land or Belgic Confession, and the Canons of Dordrecht. Our age is not characterized by a clear knowledge of and love of distinct doctrine. Creeds do not meet with much favor in the church of today. Some churches still have creeds but without being acquainted with their contents; others have so abbreviated their confessions that they contain no distinctive doctrine at all; many have adopted the deceiving...

As we wrote in our last article, we left Manhattan on Thursday, April 24. The distance from Manhattan to Bellflower by auto is about 1200 miles. And as we left about seven thirty in the morning, and planned to be in Bellflower by Friday evening, we had no time to spare. Once more our way led through the beautiful Gallatin Canyon to West Yellowstone, thence westward for a short stretch over the Continental Divide, and after that our main direction was south, so that it became warmer as we made progress. At West Yellowstone, which we reached a little after...

Pentecost is the great day of harvest. The fruit of the suffering and death of the Savior becomes apparent. O, sure, the Resurrection and the Ascension are the result of that same suffering and death, for it proved beyond any doubt, that the work of Christ was accepted by God. God called His suffering Servant out of the grave, that He might appear as the Lord of glory, who received a name which is above every name. The new line begins with the resurrection, becomes more glorious in His ascension and must find Him exalted in the sitting at the...

After reading Psalm 38 and noting that David calls this psalm: “to bring to remembrance”, we are inclined to say: the sooner forgotten the better. It seems to me that nice people would rather not have too much of this song. Its language is shocking to the so-called refined intellect. The choice of words is rather indelicate. Imagine: my wounds stink! Who wants to use this kind of language to describe self? Much more: who would want to sing it? Have you noted, dear reader, that you will never find a number in the host of hymn-books which comes anywhere...
