In the course of going through this book, I have found several typographical errors which I have taken the liberty to correct. Selections on which corrections have been made are denoted by an asterisk next to the page number on the post, mostly for my own recollection. Corrections that have been made have no bearing on the subject matter. In addition, the reader of this blog should note that the postings I make are not in the same order of the book and are completely arbitrary,

The Believer's Feet

pg. 63

Set upon a Rock....

Psalm 40:2 (and 3)
He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.....

And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD. Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.

Cleansed of sin...

John 13:10
 Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all.

 Kept by the Divine Power

1 Samuel 2:9
He will keep the feet of his saints, and the wicked shall be silent in darkness; for by strength shall no man prevail.

Shod with Peace

Ephesians 6:15
And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

Running with the Gospel
Romans 10:15
  5And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

Bruising Satan
Romans 16:20
And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.

Three Graces

Three Graces in Thessalonians Chapter 1

Work of Faith -Turned to God... Verses 3 and 9
               Labor of Love- Serve the Living God... Verses 3 and 9
                           Patience of Hope- Wait for the son Verses 3 and 10

To the church of the Thessalonians in God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace to you and peace. We give thanks to God always for all of you, making mention of you in our prayers;constantly bearing in mind your work of faith and labor of love and steadfastness of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ in the presence of our God and Father, knowing, brethren beloved by God, His choice of you; for our gospel did not come to you in word only, but also in power and in
Spirit and with full conviction; just as you know what kind of men we proved to be among you for your sake.  You also became imitators of us and of the Lord, having received the word in much tribulation with the joy of the Holy Spirit, so that you became an example to all the believers in Macedonia and in Achaia.  For the word of the Lord has sounded forth from you, not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also in every place your faith toward God has gone forth, so that we have no need to say anything.  For they themselves report about us what kind of a reception we had with you, and how you turned to God from idols to serve a living and true God,  and to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead, that is Jesus, who rescues us from the wrath to come.

His Name

His Name
pg. 113

Remission in His Name, (not by prayers)....Acts 10:43
 "Of Him all the prophets bear witness 
that through His name everyone who believes in Him 
receives forgiveness of sins. "

Consider also:

Luke 24:47
"and that repentance for forgiveness of sins 
would be proclaimed in His name 
to all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem."

Acts 2:38 
Peter said to them, "Repent, 
and each of you be baptized 
in the name of Jesus Christ 
for the forgiveness of your sins; 
and you will receive 
the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Life through His name, not by "works.".... John 20:31

"...but these have been written so that you may believe 
that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; 
and that believing you may have life in His name."

Consider also: 

John 3:15
so that whoever believes
will in Him have eternal life.
Salvation  in His name, not in any other.... Acts 4:12

"Neither is there salvation in any other: 
for there is none other name
under heaven 
given among men,
whereby we must be saved."

Note for May 2011

The light is still shining!

It has been a while since I have posted.  Computer issues and vacation, not to mention, the busy-ness of life in general, has kept me away; but I am back in the saddle today....ready to type.  The flame is still flickering to share some of the the treasure in this little antiquated book.
