DAY-BREAK ON THE BEACH
"When the morning was now come, Jesus
stood on the shore: but the disciples knew not that it was Jesus."--
THE PREVIOUS evening had been full of
interest and hope. Those seven fishermen had long been separated from their
craft, and thinking probably that they were not to see their Master again,
they betook themselves, with considerable zest, to the shore of the Lake.
They entered the old familiar boat, and that night they caught nothing! It
was the last fishing expedition they were to have. They were to navigate
other waters, use other nets, and sail under other skies. The greatness of
their disappointment was to block the door in that direction and open it in
another. No longer fishermen on the shores of Galilee, but shepherds,
pasturing their flocks on the celestial mountains, whence views are to be
obtained, in fair weather, of the Eternal City. Has your life been a
disappointment? Did you start out, years ago, with good heart and hope?
Perhaps the winds were soft, the starlight brilliant, and there was a chance
of the moon breaking through. But the sky soon clouded over, and the years
have gone wearily! It isn't that you have been idle, but for some reason
everything has miscarried; and now there seems nothing for it but to land on
the shore of Eternity, as Paul did on the shore at Malta. But do not be too
sure of this! When the morning breaks on that coastline, it is more than
likely that you will see Jesus standing on the beach. He will know the time
of your arrival, and will come down to meet yon, as He did for the first
martyr, Stephen, and has done for a multitude beside. It is very pleasant,
as in the big ship, you emerge from the night, to see familiar faces
greeting you, or even one dear face with a smile of welcome awaiting your
coming! It may happen to be the landing-stage at New York, Bombay,
Melbourne, or Liverpool, but what a difference it makes! And when the Day of
days shall break, and the shadows flee away, and the little boat of our life
grates on the shore, it will be good indeed to see Christ standing there,
with His outstretched hand to welcome, to help us disembark, to lead us to
the prepared place on which He has expended thought and care. "I go to
prepare a place for you I will come again to receive you unto Myself."
Suffice it if--my good and ill unreckoned,
And both forgiv'n through His abounding grace--
I find myself by hands familiar beckoned
Unto my fitting place.

"And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes"
Yes, we shall come to this if we are believers. Sorrow shalt cease, and
tears shall be wiped away. This is the world of weeping, but it passes
away. There shall be a new heaven and a new earth, so says the first verse
of this chapter; and therefore there will be nothing to weep over
concerning the Fall and its consequent miseries. Read the second verse and
note how it speaks of the bride and her marriage. The Lamb's wedding is a
time for boundless pleasure, and tears would be out of place. The third
verse says that God Himself will dwell among men; and surely at His right
hand there are pleasures forevermore, and tears can no longer flow. What
will our state be when there will be no more sorrow, nor crying, neither
shall there be any more pain? This will be more glorious than we can as
yet imagine. O eyes that are red with weeping, cease your scalding flow,
for in a little while ye shall know no more tears! None can wipe tears
away like the God of love, but He is coming to do it. "Weeping may endure
for a night, but joy cometh in the morning." Come, LORD, and tarry not;
for now both men and women must weep!
MORNING AND EVENING
Morning, January 28
“Perfect in Christ Jesus.”
Do you not feel in your own soul that perfection is not in you? Does
not every day teach you that? Every tear which trickles from your
eye, weeps “imperfection;” every harsh word which proceeds from your
lip, mutters “imperfection.” You have too frequently had a view of
your own heart to dream for a moment of any perfection in yourself.
But amidst this sad consciousness of imperfection, here is comfort
for you—you are “perfect in Christ Jesus.” In God’s sight, you are
“complete in him;” even now you are “accepted in the Beloved.” But
there is a second perfection, yet to be realized, which is sure to
all the seed. Is it not delightful to look forward to the time when
every stain of sin shall be removed from the believer, and he shall
be presented faultless before the throne, without spot, or wrinkle,
or any such thing? The Church of Christ then will be so pure, that
not even the eye of Omniscience will see a spot or blemish in her;
so holy and so glorious, that Hart did not go beyond the truth when
“With my Saviour’s garments on,
Holy as the Holy One.”
Then shall we know, and taste, and feel the happiness of this vast
but short sentence, “Complete in Christ.” Not till then shall we
fully comprehend the heights and depths of the salvation of Jesus.
Doth not thy heart leap for joy at the thought of it? Black as thou
art, thou shalt be white one day; filthy as thou art, thou shalt be
clean. Oh, it is a marvellous salvation this! Christ takes a worm
and transforms it into an angel; Christ takes a black and deformed
thing and makes it clean and matchless in his glory, peerless in his
beauty, and fit to be the companion of seraphs. O my soul, stand and
admire this blessed truth of perfection in Christ.
Evening, January 28
“And the shepherds returned,
glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard
and seen, as it was told unto them.”
What was the subject of their praise? They praised God for what
they had heard—for the good tidings of great joy that a Saviour
was born unto them. Let us copy them; let us also raise a song of
thanksgiving that we have heard of Jesus and his salvation. They
also praised God for what they had seen. There is the sweetest
music—what we have experienced, what we have felt within, what we
have made our own—“the things which we have made touching the
King.” It is not enough to hear about Jesus: mere hearing may tune
the harp, but the fingers of living faith must create the music.
If you have seen Jesus with the God-giving sight of faith, suffer
no cobwebs to linger among the harp strings, but loud to the
praise of sovereign grace, awake your psaltery and harp. One point
for which they praised God was the agreement between what they had
heard and what they had seen. Observe the last sentence—“As it was
told unto them.” Have you not found the gospel to be in yourselves
just what the Bible said it would be? Jesus said he would give you
rest—have you not enjoyed the sweetest peace in him? He said you
should have joy, and comfort, and life through believing in
him—have you not received all these? Are not his ways ways of
pleasantness, and his paths paths of peace? Surely you can say
with the queen of Sheba, “The half has not been told me.” I have
found Christ more sweet than his servants ever said he was. I
looked upon his likeness as they painted it, but it was a mere
daub compared with himself; for the King in his beauty outshines
all imaginable loveliness. Surely what we have “seen” keeps pace
with, nay, far exceeds, what we have “heard.” Let us, then,
glorify and praise God for a Saviour so precious, and so
J H JOWETT
CLEAN AND UNCLEAN ANGER
Ephesians 4:25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32.
"LET all anger be put away from you.” And yet only a moment ago the
Apostle had written the words, “Be ye angry and sin not.” My power of
anger is not to be destroyed, it is to be transformed and purified. Anger
can be like an unclean bonfire; it can also be like “a sea of glass
mingled with fire.” There can be more smoke than light in it, more selfish
passion than holy purpose. The fuel that feeds it may be envy, and
jealousy, and spite, and not a big desire for the good of men and the
glory of God. Worldly anger “is set on fire of hell”; holy anger borrows
flame from the altar-fires of God.
Our anger reveals our character. What is the quality of our anger? What
kindles it? Is it incited by our own wrongs or by the wrongs of another?
Is it set on fire by self-indulgence or by a noble sympathy? Here is a
sentence which describes the anger of the Apostle Paul: “Who is made to
stumble and I burn not?” Paul’s holy anger was made to burn by oppression,
by the cruelty inflicted upon his fellow-men. His fire had nothing unclean
in it; it was pure as the flame of oxygen.
This is the anger we must cherish. We cannot “work ourselves up” into it.
We must seek to be “baptized with the Holy Ghost and with fire.”
"Year Book" 1895
"The angel of God . . . went before the camp of Israel." Exodus
This angel was revealed in the form of cloud and fire. It was
wonderful guidance which God gave to his people in their marches.
By day the pillar of cloud sheltered them—and then by night the
same cloud was light. By day it was shelter—by night it was light.
And always it was guidance. When they were to move, it lifted and
went in advance, to lead them. When they were to halt and rest, it
settled down, thus giving them the signal to pitch their tents.
This was miraculous guidance; but we have God's presence just as
really, though without a visible 'pillar' to lead us. God guides
his people by his Word, by his providence, by his Spirit. If we
are willing to follow unquestioningly, we shall never be left long
in perplexity, as to the way we should take. Our guidance is given
to us only as we will accept it and shape our course by it.
Nor is the guidance given in maps and charts, showing us miles and
miles of the road; it is given only step by step as we go on.

- Hawawir Dar Hamid People of Sudan
From the recently built roads in Sudan, one can still see nomads
traveling across the desert. The Hawawir are an African people of
Semitic origin, dwelling in the Bayuda Desert. This subgroup of
the Dar Hamid owns large herds of oxen, sheep, and camels. They
are led by a single chief. Because they are a nomadic people, they
live in camps. They have a complex system of migration. While the
Hawawir men move across the desert with their camel herds, the
women and children stay home in the dikka.
The women tend the gardens and the small boys work in the fields,
herding house camels and preventing goats and sheep from entering
the cultivated land. Because life in the desert is very dangerous,
all of the Hawawir men wear sheathed daggers on their left arms.
Most carry swords and all carry either shotguns or rifles. They
must sleep lightly at night to protect themselves and their tribes
Traditionally, all 19 Dar Hamid subgroups have been Sunni Muslims.
However, most are not religious and they know very little about
Learn more at joshuaproject.net
Pray for compassionate missionaries who are willing to embrace the
Hawawir culture and endure the harsh, nomadic lifestyle with them.
Pray that believing teachers will go to this group since most of
the population cannot read. Pray for a movement of the Holy Spirit
among the Dar Hamid.
Jeremiah 45:4-5, NIV
God admonishes us, as He did Jeremiah’s scribe Baruch, to abandon
selfish ambition, which prevents us from spending our lives on
what is most important. Most people spend their lives pursuing
either things or accomplishments. It is nothing less than tragic
when believers chase personal aspirations to the neglect of the
clearly-revealed purposes of God. In light of what God is doing
and wants to do among the nations, can we possibly justify seeking
great things for ourselves?
Pray to yield your aspirations, ambitions, and dreams to His

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"!

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

were published in 1706 and national revival, the

occurred in the 1730's and 1740's! Brethren, there is hope because
there is a "God of hope"! Ro 15:13)
