God’s New Israel (ch.1)

Chapter 1 What Seest Thou? “The word of the Lord came unto me, saying… What seest thou?… The word of the Lord came unto me the second time, saying, What seest thou?” (Jeremiah 1:11,13). “Then said the Lord unto me, What seest thou?” (Jeremiah 24:3). “The angel that talked with me… said unto me, What seest thou?” (Zechariah 4:1,2). “The burden… which Isaiah… did see” (Isaiah 13:1). “And he said… What seest thou?” (Amos 8:2). What a very great deal was bound up with this interrogating and challenging method of the Lord with His Prophets! The history and destiny...

Chapter 2 The Hope of Israel “The Hope of Israel”. That phrase employed by the Apostle Paul was used to sum up the whole substance and issues of his life-ministry (Acts 28:20). You will observe that in the defense made by Paul before Agrippa he narrated the story of his life as a Jew, and now in his Roman prison he meets the Jews in Rome and tells them that he is there as a prisoner for “the hope of Israel”. What was the hope of Israel? While there were many things included in that hope, the inclusiveness was...

Chapter 4 God’s New Israel At the commencement of these messages we made one statement which was to cover all that follows. That declaration was that the New Testament is built upon the ground of the Old Testament; that is, that what God was doing in a temporal and earthly way then, He is doing in a heavenly and spiritual way now. There is no change in His purpose, nor in His principles: the change is in His method. His one purpose is to take out of the nations a people for His name (Acts 15:14). In this part...

Chapter 3 The Foundation Law of God’s New Israel “And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the Lord appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am God Almighty; walk before me, and be thou perfect. And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly. And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying, As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be the father of a multitude of nations. Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be...

Chapter 5 The Great Inheritance “And now I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you the inheritance among all them that are sanctified” (Acts 20:32). “…to open their eyes, that they may turn from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive remission of sins and an inheritance among them that are sanctified by faith in me” (Acts 26:18). “…giving thanks unto the Father, who made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints...

Chapter 1 The Divine Basis of All Acceptable Prayer As we contemplate the great ministry of prayer, I think it would be most helpful if at the outset we were reminded of the Divine basis of all acceptable prayer. Before we come to what may be more technical we must recognize the spiritual foundation of prayer, and that has to do with the ingredients and the sacredness of the incense which was to be burnt upon the golden altar referred to in Exodus 30, verse 34 onwards. It is not my intention to take up these ingredients for exposition,...
