According to Your Faith, Or, The Fundamental Rule of Conduct for the Kingdom of God ---New Window 11-18-99
Like a Divine Cycle, faith in the Promises teach us to trust in God, because "all the Promises of God in [Christ Jesus] are yea, and in Him Amen, unto the glory of God by us" (2Corinthians 1:20). Building Christian Confidence is not a humanistic confidence in self, but it is the confidence that God, "that cannot lie" (Titus 1:2), will do as He said. "God is not a man, that He should lie; neither the son of man, that He should repent: hath He said, and shall He not do it? or hath He spoken, and shall He not make it good?" (Numbers 23:19). The Apostle John wrote in his First Epistle that his purpose in writing, like a Divine Cycle, was to those who had already believed on the LORD Jesus, that they may further understand Him, that they would be encouraged to further trust Him. "These things have I written unto you that believe on the Name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have Eternal Life, and that ye may believe on the Name of the Son of God" (1John 5:13)... Faith is inescapably tied to the Promises. "That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the Promises" (Hebrews 6:12). The LORD will take us at whatever level of Spiritual development that we possess, and He will give further revelations of Himself, His Word, and His character. "He that hath My Commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth Me: and he that loveth Me shall be loved of My Father, and I will love Him, and will manifest Myself to Him" (John 14:21).
All the Promises in Christ Jesus are Yea ---New Window 12-2-2001
"Humanly speaking, we affirm something is true, or is not true, saying that this or that may happen, or may not happen. 'Do I [the Apostle Paul] purpose according to the flesh, that with me there should be yea yea, and nay nay [yes, yes, and no, no]?' (2Corinthians 1:17). But Spiritually speaking, that is, applying the Principles and Promises of God's Word to any given situation led of the Spirit to address, we must adamantly affirm, 'Yes! Only God states Absolute Truth. This WILL happen!' 'As God is True, our Word toward you was not yea and nay' (1:18). Why? Because Jesus,Who is our 'Yea' and our 'Amen', secures ONLY 'Yea [Yes]' and 'Amen [Verily, Truly]' answers to our faith. '19 For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, Who was preached among you by us, even by me [Paul] and Silvanus and Timotheus, was NOT yea and nay [yes and no], but in Him was YEA. 20 For ALL the Promises of God in Him are Yea [Yes], and in Him Amen [Verily, Truly], unto the Glory of God by us' (1:19-20). It is this very fact that allows the LORD the liberty to offer freely His Blank Check Promises-- with strings attached, most certainly-- but none the less LIMITLESS."
Approval in the LORD ---New Window 7-19-98
1 Tim. 2:1-3 "I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all Godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour."

Exceeding Great and Precious Promises, Or, How God Has Ingeniously Designed His Promises to Sanctify His People ---New Window 3-7-98
Our day-to-day needs have been ordained by God to cause us the necessity of discovering some new aspect of the character of the LORD Jesus that we may lay hold of by means of the Exceeding Great and Precious Promises. "But my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus" (Philippians 4:19).

How I Know God Answers Prayer, The Personal Testimony of One Lifetime ---New Window 1921
Rosalind Goforth (Mrs. Jonathan Goforth) Went to China in 1888
"It seems fitting that this little book of personal testimonies to answered prayer should have a brief introductory word as to how they came to be written. The question has been asked by some who read many of these testimonies as they appeared in the pages of The Sunday School Times: 'How could you write such personal and sacred incidents in your life?' I could not have written them but for a very clear, God-given leading."
In God We Trust, Or, The Freedom of Believing in Someone Who Has Never Failed ---New Window 2-3-2002
"Faith in God Almighty is simple in concept and practice because the LORD is Absolute in every sense. He is easy to believe! And it is for this reason, that rejection of Him is the greatest crime of all. "For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more" (Luke 12:48). And this quality of being Absolute, if received in faith, is not only the Greatest Blessing Of All, but also the easiest to obtain. "Without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he that cometh to God MUST believe that He is, and that He is a Rewarder of them that diligently seek Him" (Hebrews 11:6)."
Intercession Promises: Casting The Net, Or, Help in Becoming Fishers of Men ---New Window 5-1-99
"And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after Me, and I will make you to become fishers of men" (Mark 1:17).
In "looking unto Jesus the Author and Finisher of our faith" (Hebrews 12:2), we not only find Our Way, but The Way for others. And we will find that His "free Gift... the Gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many" (Romans 5:15). The souls of men are the reward of His increase. For if Jesus Christ is the Net with which we use to catch men, then they will be truly and eternally caught!
A Vision Of The Lost
by William Booth (1829 - 1912)
Founder of the Salvation Army
"On one of my recent journeys, as I gazed from the coach window, I was led into a train of thought concerning the condition of the multitudes around me. They were living carelessly in the most open and shameless rebellion against God, without a thought for their eternal welfare. As I looked out of the window, I seemed to see them all... millions of people all around me given up to their drink and their pleasure, their dancing and their music, their business and their anxieties, their politics and their troubles. Ignorant- willfully ignorant in many cases- and in other instances knowing all about the truth and not caring at all. But all of them, the whole mass of them, sweeping on and up in their blasphemies and devilries to the Throne of God. While my mind was thus engaged, I had a vision."

Miracles in the LORD ---New Window 8-13-99
At every mention of Miracles performed by our LORD and Saviour Jesus Christ, could we not, as His ambassadors, perform such Miracles by the Promise of His Word-- "greater works than these shall [ye] do"?. In the troubled times that lay ahead, Tribulation saints will especially NEED the LORD's Power displayed in Miracles. "Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a council, and said, What do we? for this Man [put your name here] doeth many Miracles" (John 11:47).

Pollyanna, Rejoicing, and the Promises ---New Window 6-12-05
Pollyanna is a book by Eleanor Porter, a movie by Walt Disney, and a label for those whose optimism overreaches the boundaries of the reality seen by others. You can see why 100-year-old Abraham-- with 90-year-old Sarah-- could have been labelled a Pollyanna for believing God's promise of a son, as well as becoming the Father of a Great Nation. "20 He staggered not at the Promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in Faith, giving glory to God; 21 And being fully persuaded that, what He had promised, He was able also to perform" (Romans 4:20-21). Dare we be called a Pollyanna for our rejoicing optimism in the Promises of God?

Precious Bible Promises, Also known as Clarke's Scripture Promises. ---New Window (1684-1759)
Compiled by Samuel Clarke, D.D.
Compiled by Samuel Clarke more than 274 years ago, Precious Bible Promises is more than a sampling of the vows of a Loving God to fulfil the certainties of His Everlasting Word to a trusting soul, but it is a reference from which to begin to mine the unfathomable treasures of Christ-- in the times of calm before the promised storms. "For all the Promises of God in Him are Yea, and in Him Amen, unto the Glory of God by us" (2Corinthians 1:20).

What is the Prayer of Faith? ---New Window 3-12-2000
"And the Prayer of Faith shall save the sick, and the LORD shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him" (James 5:15).
"Not every prayer from the lips of a sincere Christian gets an affirmative nod from Above. Many times prayer does not yield the desired results we yearn for. 'Hope deferred maketh the heart sick' (Proverbs 13:12). Hope precedes all prayer, but only when the answer comes do we recognize the difference that Faith makes in praying. 'But when the desire cometh, it is a Tree of Life' (13:12). Picture lightning. When God's will makes contact with our hope, Faith is established and grace races down the lightning rod of experience. Faith is the way you use God's grace. It's our part to exercise the Faith God authors, but its God's part to finish it."
Wisdom in the LORD ---New Window 11-11-97
Prov. 1:23 "Turn to My reproof, Behold, I will pour out My Spirit on you; I will make My Words known to you."
With such a promise as this, let us run without weariness

- excerpts from "Faith's Checkbook" ---New Window SEE TODAY'S ENTRY ---New Window by C. H. Spurgeon
From the beginning of man's history, the Creator has progressively made Himself
known through His Word and works. "Am I a God at hand,
saith the LORD, and not a God afar off?" (Jeremiah 23:23).
Though man often complains that life has no instruction manual, the Faithful God
has always made Himself known to man. "1 God, Who at sundry times and in divers
manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, 2
hath in these Last Days spoken unto us by His Son, Whom He
hath appointed Heir of all things, by Whom also He made the worlds" (Hebrews 1:1-2). The very fact that the Son of God, Who is the "Word of Life" (1John 1:1),
came into this world as human flesh, demonstrates the importance that God places
upon making His Word known. "19
For it pleased the Father that in Him [Jesus] should all fulness dwell... 2:3 In Whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge... 9 For in Him [Jesus] dwelleth
all the fulness of the Godhead bodily" (Colossians 1:19;
'I am the Lord, I change not.'"
