The Key to Bible study...

The light, frivolous, frothy literature of the day?

The one, precious, all absorbing theme!

      By Spurgeon The promises of God are to the believer an 'inexhaustible mine of wealth'. Happy is it for him if he knows how to search out their secret veins and enrich himself with their hidden treasures. They are an 'armory', containing all m ... read more

The Providence of God
      (by Don Fortner) "And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28 Divine providence is the daily, constant, sovereign rule of our God over all thing ... read more

The silkworm
      (Spurgeon, "The Deep-seated Character of Sin") Nothing is more pleasing to human nature than the attempt to do something by which it may merit salvation at the hand of God. Man is much like a silkworm, he is a spinner and weaver by nature. ... read more

The silly moth is caught!
      (Henry Law, "Deuteronomy" 1858) Why is this world such a wide sea of evil? Why do earth's multitudes roll so easily to hell? The tastes of the mass of the human race are groveling and vile. They only care to sip the vulgar cup of time and ... read more

The so-called innocence of children
      (Augustine) "Every inclination of man's heart is evil from childhood." Genesis 8:21 The so-called innocence of children is more a matter of weakness of limb, than purity of heart. "I have been evil from the day I was born; from the time ... read more

The softest pillow and the strongest staff?
      From Spurgeon's sermon, A BASKET OF SUMMER FRUIT I am persuaded that the doctrine of predestination is one of the 'softest pillows' upon which the Christian can lay his head, and one of the 'strongest staffs' upon which he may lean, in his pilg ... read more

The soul's natural element
      (J. C. Philpot, "What Is It That Saves a Soul?") Before the soul can know anything about salvation, it must learn deeply and experimentally the nature of sin, and of itself, as stained and polluted by sin. It is proud, and needs to be humbled. ... read more

The Sovereign Electing Grace of God!
      The following is from Spurgeon's sermon, The Widow of Sarepta. #817. 1 Kings 17:8, 9. None of us have any right to God's mercy. Election is an indisputable truth of Christianity, and one full of the richest comfort to the child of God- one whi ... read more

The sovereign ruler of the world!

The study of the Bible cannot save you!
      The following is from Spurgeon's sermon, "Help for Seekers of the Light" #884. Is. 59:9. True salvation is not to be found through the mere reception of any creed, however true or scriptural. Mere 'head notion' is not the road to heav ... read more

The Talking Book...

The ulcer that sits on a creature's heart
      (Andrew Gray "Door Unto Everlasting Life") Sin is the ulcer that sits on a creature's heart, and robs him of all true contentment and sound joy. Oh the secret gnawings that envy, and pride, and covetousness give a man's soul. Sin is the so ... read more

The Unconquerable King, part 1

The Unconquerable King, part 2
      Spurgeon "The Unconquerable King" Daniel 4:34,35 Events appear to fly at random like the dust in the whirlwind; but it is not so. The rule of the Omnipotent God extends over all things at all times! Nothing is left to its own chance, but ... read more

The weather

The world is . . .
      (by Horatius Bonar) The world is . . . blind, and knows it not; poor, and thinks itself rich; foolish, and thinks itself wise. It is not aware of the extent of its ruin, alienation, and depravity. It is not alive to its danger, i ... read more

The wrath of God let loose upon His Son!
      (Winslow, "The God of Holiness") Divine holiness is best exhibited in the cross of Jesus. Not hell itself, dreadful and eternal as is its suffering: the undying worm, the unquenchable fire, the smoke of the torment that goes up forever and eve ... read more

The wretched idol, SELF!
      (Octavius Winslow, "Christ and the Christian in Temptation" 1877) Of all the sins common to our fallen nature, God has the most signally marked that of Idolatry, or False Worship. Man is by nature an idolater. His sinful mind, being alien ... read more

The 'Illuminated' Bible!
      From Spurgeon's, "The Holy Ghost- the Great Teacher" Do any of you have an 'illuminated' Bible at home? "No," says one, "I have a morocco Bible; I have a Polyglot Bible; I have a marginal reference Bible." Ah! that is all very well, but h ... read more

Theological studies?
      Spurgeon If the time spent over "obscure theological propositions" were given to a mission in the dim alley near the man's house, more benefit would come to the man and more glory to God. I do not see the propriety of allowing such studies to ... read more

      (J. C. Ryle, "The Gospel of John") "This is a hard teaching. Who can accept it?" John 6:60 Murmurs and complaints of this kind are very common. It must never surprise us to hear them. They have been, they are, they will be, as long a ... read more

This little idol?
      Winslow, "The Sympathy of Christ" To affirm, as the Scriptures of truth positively do, that mankind is originally and totally depraved, is but to portray it with every feature of its pristine nobleness, purity, and excellence utterly spoiled! ... read more

Thus Says the Lord!
