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 Lord's People

 The Lord's People
(BGS pg. 4)

A Chosen People
Deuteronomy 7:6-8
For thou art an holy people unto the LORD
thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee
to be a special people unto himself,
above all people that are upon the face of the earth.
The LORD did not set his love upon you, 
nor choose you, because ye were more in number 
than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people: 
But because the LORD loved you, 
and because he would keep the oath 
which he had sworn unto your fathers, 
hath the LORD brought you out 
with a mighty hand, and redeemed you 
ut of the house of bondmen,
from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.
1 Peter 2:9-10
But ye are a chosen generation,
a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; 
that ye should shew forth the praises of him 
who hath called you out of darkness
into his marvellous light;
 Which in time past were not a people, 
but are now the people of God:
which had not obtained mercy, 
but now have obtained mercy.

A Redeemed People
Exodus 15:13;
Who is like unto thee, O LORD, among the gods? 
who is like thee, glorious in holiness, 
fearful in praises, doing wonders?
Thou stretchedst out thy right hand, the earth swallowed them.
 Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the people 
which thou hast redeemed:
thou hast guided them
in thy strength unto thy holy habitation.

Ephesians 1:5-7
 Having predestinated us 
unto the adoption of children
by Jesus Christ to himself, 
according to the good pleasure of his will,
 To the praise of the glory of his grace, 
wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.
In whom we have redemption 
through his blood, the forgiveness of sins,
according to the riches of his grace; 

A Peculiar People
Duet 14:2
For thou art an holy people 
unto the LORD thy God, 
and the LORD hath chosen thee
to be a peculiar people unto himself, 
above all the nations that are upon the earth. 

Titus 2:11-14
 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation 
hath appeared to all men,
 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, 
we should live soberly, righteously, 
and godly, in this present world;
 Looking for that blessed hope, 
and the glorious appearing 
of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
 Who gave himself for us,
that he might redeem us from all iniquity, 
and purify unto himself a peculiar people, 
zealous of good works.

A Separated People
Exodus 33:16
For wherein shall it be known here
that I and thy people have found grace in thy sight? 
is it not in that thou goest with us? 
so shall we be separated,
I and thy people, from all the people 
that are upon the face of the earth.
And the LORD said unto Moses, 
I will do this thing also that thou hast spoken: 
for thou hast found grace in my sight, 
and I know thee by name. 

John 15:19
These things I command you,
that ye love one another.
 If the world hate you, 
ye know that it hated me before it hated you.
If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: 
but because ye are not of the world
but I have chosen you out of the world, 
therefore the world hateth you.

A Holy People
Duet 14:2
/For thou art an holy people 
unto the LORD thy God,
Psalm 34:8
Taste and see that the LORD is good;
   blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
Fear the LORD, you his holy people,
   for those who fear him lack nothing.
1 Peter 1:13-16
 Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, 
be sober, and hope to the end 
for the grace that is to be brought unto you 
at the revelation of Jesus Christ;
As obedient children, 
not fashioning yourselves according to 
the former lusts in your ignorance:
But as he which hath called you is holy,
so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; 
because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.

A Happy People
Deuteronomy 33:29
Happy art thou, O Israel: w
ho is like unto thee, 
O people saved by the LORD,
the shield of thy help, 
and who is the sword of thy excellency! 

John 15:11
These things have I spoken unto you, 
that my joy
might remain in you, 
and that your joy might be full.

By faith...
....we become Children of God 
For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. 
Gal 3:26
By obedience...
....we are God's Children
As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according 
to the former lusts in your ignorance:
1 Peter 1:14
By living...
...we show we are God's children
Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, 
not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, 
work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. 
Philippians 2:12
