October 23, Evening
when one has an abundance does his life consist of his possessions.
is the little of the righteous than the abundance of many wicked. --Better
is little with the fear of the LORD
than great treasure and turmoil with it --Godliness actually is a means of
great gain, when accompanied by contentment. And if we have food and
covering, with these we shall be content.
Give me neither poverty nor riches; Feed me
with the food that is my portion, Lest I be full and deny Thee and say, "Who
is the LORD?" Or lest I be in want and steal, And profane the name of my God
.--Give us this day our daily bread.
do not be anxious for your life, as to what you shall
eat, or what you shall drink; nor for your body, as to what you shall put
on. Is not life more than food, and the body than clothing? --"When I sent
you out without purse and bag and sandals, you did not lack anything, did
you?" And they said, "No, nothing." -Let your character be free from the
love of money, being content with what you have; for He Himself has said "I
will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you."

Mt. 6.25.--Lk. 22.35.--Heb 13.5.
the Spirit Who gives life
first man Adam became a living soul. The last Adam became a life-giving
spirit.--That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of
the Spirit is spirit.--Not on the basis of deeds which we have done in
righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration
and renewing by the Holy Spirit
If anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ,
he does not belong to Him. And if Christ is in you, though the body is dead
because of sin, yet the spirit is alive because of righteousness. But if the
Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised
Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through
His Spirit who indwells you.
It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in
me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of
God, who loved me, and delivered Himself up for me --Consider yourselves to
be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus.

THE ROLL OF FAITH
"Time will fail me if I tell of
Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah... who through faith subdued kingdoms,
wrought righteousness, obtained promises."--
Heb 11:32, 33
FAITH IS the link between our souls
and God. It is the capacity of entering into fellowship with the Eternal
Love and Power, so that we are able to do all things with the sense that
it is not we who do them, but God in us and with us. Faith is the open
door and window towards God. In faith our heart goes out towards God in
clinging dependence, and God comes in to strengthen us with His Divine
In human life, when we trust a man,
we draw from him all that he is able to supply; in the Divine life, faith
draws upon the resources of God, so that they flow freely into our nature,
and the results of our life-work are immensely increased. Faith is
possible amid a great deal of ignorance. It is clear that Gideon, Barak,
Samson, and Jephthah were ignorant of the truth which the Gospel has
revealed, and yet we learn that their work was largely due to their faith.
Dispensations come and go; the revelation of God grows from less to more;
but the attitude of faith is always the same--in the simple woman that
touched the hem of Christ's garment, as in St. John the beloved disciple,
who had years of training in Christ's School.
Faith achieves very different
results. In some, it produces the heroic strength that turns the battle
from the gate; in some, the passive suffering that endures the long ordeal
of pain. Here, it turns the edge of the sword; there, shuts the mouths of
lions. We know how electric force may be applied to all the various
machinery of human life. In one place used for the beaming light, in
another to drive the motor car, or to flash the message of music and
speech from one continent to another. So Faith is able to appropriate
God's might for any purpose that lies within the compass of the life-task,
whether active or passive. (See
Heb 11:32, 33, 34,35, 36, 37,
God bears a witness to all who trust
Him. He never fails us in the hour of need. His response is the echo of
our appeal. As soon as the uplifted arm of the tramcar touches the
overhead wire, there is the spark, and the immediate entrance of electric
power. So God answers faith.
O God, we are full of need, but we
have learnt that Thou givest power to the faint and to those that have no
right. Change our weakness into Thy strength; our ignorance into Thy
wisdom; our changefulness into Thine everlasting constancy. AMEN.

Harvest of Light, Gladness
"Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart"
Righteousness is often costly to the man who keeps to it at all hazards,
but in the end it will bear its own expenses and return an infinite
profit. A holy life is like sowing seed: much is going out, and apparently
it is buried in the soil, never to be gathered up again. We are mistaken
when we look for an immediate harvest; but the error is very natural, for
it seems impossible to bury light. Yet light is "sown," says the text. It
lies latent: none can see it; it is sown. We are quite sure that it must
one day manifest itself. Full sure are we that the LORD has set a harvest
for the sower of light, and they shall reap it, each man for himself. Then
shall come their gladness. Sheaves of joy for seeds of light. Their heart
was upright before the LORD, though men gave them no credit for it, but
even censured them: they were righteous, though those about them denounced
them as censorious. They had to wait, as husbandmen wait for the precious
fruits of the earth: but the light was sown for them, and gladness was
being prepared on their behalf by the LORD of the harvest. Courage,
brothers! We need not he in a hurry. Let us in patience possess our souls,
for soon shall our souls possess light and gladness.
MORNING AND EVENING
Morning, October 23
“Will ye also go away?”
Many have forsaken Christ, and have walked no more with him; but
what reason have you to make a change? Has there been any reason for
it in the past? Has not Jesus proved himself all-sufficient? He
appeals to you this morning—“Have I been a wilderness unto you?”
When your soul has simply trusted Jesus, have you ever been
confounded? Have you not up till now found your Lord to be a
compassionate and generous friend to you, and has not simple faith
in him given you all the peace your spirit could desire? Can you so
much as dream of a better friend than he has been to you? Then
change not the old and tried for new and false. As for the present,
can that compel you to leave Christ? When we are hard beset with
this world, or with the severer trials within the Church, we find it
a most blessed thing to pillow our head upon the bosom of our
Saviour. This is the joy we have today that we are saved in him; and
if this joy be satisfying, wherefore should we think of changing?
Who barters gold for dross? We will not forswear the sun till we
find a better light, nor leave our Lord until a brighter lover shall
appear; and, since this can never be, we will hold him with a grasp
immortal, and bind his name as a seal upon our arm. As for the
future, can you suggest anything which can arise that shall render
it necessary for you to mutiny, or desert the old flag to serve
under another captain? We think not. If life be long—he changes not.
If we are poor, what better than to have Christ who can make us
rich? When we are sick, what more do we want than Jesus to make our
bed in our sickness? When we die, is it not written that “neither
death, nor life, nor things present, nor things to come, shall be
able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus
our Lord!” We say with Peter, “Lord, to whom shall we go?”
Evening, October 23
“Why sleep ye? rise and pray,
lest ye enter into temptation.”
When is the Christian most liable to sleep? Is it not when his
temporal circumstances are prosperous? Have you not found it so?
When you had daily troubles to take to the throne of grace, were you
not more wakeful than you are now? Easy roads make sleepy travellers.
Another dangerous time is when all goes pleasantly in spiritual
matters. Christian went not to sleep when lions were in the way, or
when he was wading through the river, or when fighting with Apollyon,
but when he had climbed half way up the Hill Difficulty, and came to
a delightful arbour, he sat down, and forthwith fell asleep, to his
great sorrow and loss. The enchanted ground is a place of balmy
breezes, laden with fragrant odours and soft influences, all tending
to lull pilgrims to sleep. Remember Bunyan’s description: “Then they
came to an arbour, warm, and promising much refreshing to the weary
pilgrims; for it was finely wrought above head, beautified with
greens, and furnished with benches and settles. It had also in it a
soft couch, where the weary might lean.” “The arbour was called the
Slothful’s Friend, and was made on purpose to allure, if it might
be, some of the pilgrims to take up their rest there when weary.”
Depend upon it, it is in easy places that men shut their eyes and
wander into the dreamy land of forgetfulness. Old Erskine wisely
remarked, “I like a roaring devil better than a sleeping devil.”
There is no temptation half so dangerous as not being tempted. The
distressed soul does not sleep; it is after we enter into peaceful
confidence and full assurance that we are in danger of slumbering.
The disciples fell asleep after they had seen Jesus transfigured on
the mountain top. Take heed, joyous Christian, good frames are near
neighbours to temptations: be as happy as you will, only be
MASTERS AND SERVANTS
Matthew 20:20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28.
IT is always our peril that we hunger for place more than for character,
for position more than for disposition, for a temporal sceptre more than
for a majestic self-control.
These disciples coveted places on the right and left of the Lord, and they
had little or no concern about their worthiness for the posts.
Temporalities eclipsed spiritualities, fleeting fireworks hid the quiet
stars. They wanted to be great and prominent, the Lord wanted them to be
pure and good. They longed to be Prime Ministers, the Lord purposed that
they should be glad to be ministers, working contentedly in an obscure
Now mark our Lord’s response. “Are ye able to drink of the cup that I
drink of?” They wanted to be the King’s cup-bearers; He offers them to
drink of His cup. They call for sovereignty: He asks for sacrifice. They
crave sweetness: He offers them bitterness. They seek a life of “getting”:
He demands a life of “giving.” Who has a cup of bitterness to drink? Go
and share it with him! Where are the morally and spiritually anæmic? Go
and give them thy blood! “Whoever shall lose his life shall find it.”
Through self-sacrifice we pass to our throne.
"Year Book" 1895
"The people grew discouraged because of the way." Numbers 21:4
There are a great many discouraged people in the world. They have
lost heart, and when one has lost heart, life is very hard; the
wheels roll heavily.
No doubt there are things in everyone's path, that are
discouraging. There are hardships to endure. There are
disappointments to suffer. We come up to the very edge of
brilliant expectations, when suddenly our path is turned away!
There are hostile enemies, too, besetting all the way. No wonder
we are discouraged sometimes—if we look no higher than the road at
Some of the reasons why a Christian should not be discouraged by
any hardness in the way are, because it is God's way, and He
leads; and because the way leads to heaven; and we should be
willing to endure any hardships to reach such blessedness as there
waits for us!

- Muslim Arain People
Almost everyone knows that the most common blood type is O, and
that cuts across almost all ethnic groups. Yet there is a Muslim
people group in Pakistan that primarily has B as its blood type.
This group is the Arain, and they probably got the type B blood
running through their veins from Arab traders and missionaries.
Let me introduce you to the Arain people. Today they are one of
the most prominent people groups in Pakistan. Most of them are
involved with agriculture. They cultivate sugar cane, mangoes,
wheat, and rice, and some are involved with the dairy industry.
They were favored by the British colonizers for their hard work
and discipline. During the British colonial era, the Arain people
began to collect productive lands near emerging towns and cities.
They could either sell their crops or sell the land for a sizable
profit. As they gained wealth, the Arains put their energy into
getting higher education and political power.
Learn more at joshuaproject.net
The Arains are dedicated Muslims who would not even consider
turning their allegiance to any other religious system. Pray that
many from the Arain people will forsake religious systems and
embrace Jesus Christ in such a way that it will affect their daily
way of life and culture. Pray for their hearts to yearn for Jesus,
the giver of life.
Proverbs 2:3-5, ESV
Insight and understanding are priceless! On a worldly level, the
Arain people know this very well. Instead of putting their wealth
into luxury goods, they have “invested” so to speak in education.
Pray that the Arain people will soon use their insight to seek and
find the One who holds their future in His mighty hands. Pray for
them to have a healthy fear of the Lord.

Bryon Paulus, director

revival is failure to pray, to plead, to intercede, to cry out.
Leonard Ravenhill summed it up...
doesn't need to pray. The self-sufficient doesn't want to
self-righteous cannot pray!
Paulus commented: "Those three
principles apply to revival: We are so self-satisfied that
we don't want revival, so
self-sufficient that we think we don't need revival, and so
self-righteous that we can't have revival." (Ouch!)

God addressed Israel
in the following famous passage but the timeless principle is
apropos to believers in America ...
If I shut up the heavens so
that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the
land, or if I send pestilence among My people,
and My people who are called by My name humble themselves
and pray, and seek My face and turn from
their wicked ways,
then I will hear
from heaven, will forgive their sin, and will heal
their land. (2Chr 7:13, 14)
J. Barton Payne writes that
"This great verse, the best known in all Chronicles, expresses as
does no other in Scripture God’s requirement for national
blessing, whether in Solomon’s land, in Ezra’s, or in our own.
Those who believe must forsake their sins, turn from the life that
is centered in self, and yield to God’s word and will. Then, and
only then, will heaven send revival."
May God grant His children
grace to plead for a Spirit driven, God glorifying, Word centered,
Christ exalting revival of the Body of Christ in America.
First of all, then, I urge that
entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on
behalf of all men, for kings and all who are in authority, in
order that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness
and dignity. (1Ti 2:1,2)
Our Heavenly Father
desires to hear His children cry out with "fasting, sackcloth and
ashes" (Da 9:3), reflecting not the external appearance of our
bodies, but more accurately the internal condition of our hearts -
sinful (Da 9:5 - "we" not "they"!), rejecting His Holy Word
(Da 9:6-"we"), shameful (Da 9:8-"us"), contrite, and
broken (Ps 51:17), over our national rejection of God's righteous
and holy Name...
Daniel's prayer (Da 9:3,
4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19) is an
excellent "template" for all saints to emulate as we begin to
intercede with a sense of urgency for
America and especially for God's Name and reputation considering
that the world thinks of us as a "Christian nation" and we once
called ourselves "One Nation Under God"!
Matthew Henry's comments
on Lev 26:40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46 (directed first to Israel but
applicable to any nation that rejects Him)
Among the Israelites, persons
were not always prosperous or afflicted according to their
obedience or disobedience. But national prosperity was the
effect of national obedience, and national judgments
were brought on by national wickedness. Israel was under a

the ruin, as well as the reproach, of every people.

(Note: Henry's comments
were published in 1706 and national revival, the
First Great Awakening,
occurred in the 1730's and 1740's! Brethren, there is hope because
there is a "God of hope"! Ro 15:13)
