A Change, but Essentially Nothing New

During the past several months it has been revealed through the Lord’s guidance, that our congregation at Holland received another pastor and shepherd. And although this is a change in that we no. longer hear the voice of our former pastor Rev. W. Hofman, and now hear our present pastor Rev. B. Kok, essentially nothing new has taken place in that both of these beloved brethren set forth to us the Word of life.

He is persuaded in his heart that the whole people, including his fellow tribesmen, have forsaken him to a man and gone over to the side of David.

The Covenant Controversy (6): With Whom Established, (cont.)

In our last editorial on the covenant controversy, we were treating that wonderful passage of Col. 1:13-19. And we intimated that we would like to say more on that score, but that this would wait for further issues. What we had in mind is that part of the above Scripture which speaks of the fact that all things are created by Him and for Kim, and also that He is before all things.
