Matthew 20:31 ‘Lord, have mercy on us, thou son of David’

And as they went out from Jericho, a great multitude followed him. And behold, two blind men sitting by the wayside, when they heard that Jesus was passing by, cried out, saying, Lord, have mercy on us, thou son of David. And the multitude rebuked them that they should hold their peace: but they cried out the more, saying, Lord, have mercy on us, thou son of David. And Jesus stood still, and called them, and said, What will ye that I should do unto you? They say unto him, Lord, that our eyes may be opened. And Jesus, being moved with compassion, touched their eyes; and straightway they received their sight, and followed him. ...Keep Reading

Psalm 37:1 ‘Fret not thyself…….’

The inspired words of the focus of our attention this week are found on only four occasions, at least in the American Standard Version (1901) of the Scriptures. Three of these four occasions are to be located in the psalm under consideration, namely the 37th Psalm, ‘a psalm of David’ according to its inspired inscription.

Exodus 16:25 - ‘To-day is a Sabbath unto Jehovah: to-day ye shall not find it in the field.’

A very prevalent teaching in the midst of the Christian church finds the institution of the Sabbath, not in or before Exodus 16, but, in Exodus 20 with the giving of the law, or the Ten Commandments. Taking these commands, then, as the ‘law of Moses,’ they insist that they are no longer obligatory for the believer today....Keep Reading

Psalm 24:3 ‘Who shall ascend into the hill of Jehovah?’

“It is not he who sings so well or so many Psalms, nor he who fasts or watches so many days, nor he who divides his own among the poor, nor he who preaches to others, nor he who lives quietly, kindly and friendly; nor, in fine, nor is it he who knows all sciences and languages, nor he who works all virtuous and all good works that ever any man spoke or read of, but it is he alone, who is pure within and without.”...Keep Reading

Acts 9:5 ‘And he said, who art thou, Lord?’

Who is Saul? Why has he received so much attention from the church? Why has he, in fact, received so much attention in the Scriptures? What is the big deal about Saul of Tarsus; who even knows where Tarsus is, or was?...Keep Reading

Acts 8:34: ‘Now the passage of the scripture which he was reading was this.’

What was the Ethiopian eunuch reading? The Holy Spirit has informed us through Luke. We are told in unmistakable terms; Now the passage which he was reading was this, He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and as a lamb before his shearer is dumb, so he opened not his mouth; in his humiliation his judgment was taken away: His generation who shall declare? For his life is taken from the earth. And the eunuch answered Philip, and said, I pray thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this? of himself, or of some other? And Philip opened his mouth, and beginning from this scripture, preached unto him Jesus....Keep Reading

Malachi 3:16 ‘Then they that feared Jehovah spake one with another.’

This Weeks Focus Passage: Malachi 3:16 ‘Then they that feared Jehovah spake one with another.’ Then they that feared Jehovah spake one with another; and Jehovah hearkened, and heard, and a book of remembrance was written before him, for them that feared Jehovah and thought upon his name. And they shall be mine, saith Jehovah of hosts, even mine own possession in the day that I make; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him....Keep Reading
