Isaiah 53 – Jesus Paid It All Isaiah 53:5 ‘But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.’ The Suffering Servant (Matthew 26:57-68; Mark 14:53-65; John 18:19-24; 1 Peter 2:21-25) Who hath believed our report? and […]
Proclaim The Gospel of Christ
It is by knowing the truth, then applying it to one’s life, that will make one free, according to the word of God: So Jesus was saying to those Jews who had believed in Him, “if you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you will know the truth, and […]
I fear the personality of our Lord is sadly lost sight of by many professors in the present day. Their talk is more about salvation than about the Savior; more about redemption than about the Redeemer; more about justification than about Jesus; more about Christ’s work than about Christ’s person. This is a great fault, […]
“Behold, my servant shall deal prudently, he shall be exalted and extolled, and be very high.” – Isaiah 52:13 One of the most tragic graces we have lost today in our Christianity is the fear of the LORD, and reverence for Jesus Christ, in particular. As the enemy, the world, or corrupt flesh delight to […]
Learn, then, that if you take Christ out of Christianity,
Christianity is dead.
If you remove grace out of the gospel,

It is always the Holy Spirit’s work to turn our eyes away from self to Jesus. But Satan’s work is just the opposite; he is constantly trying to make us look at ourselves instead of Christ. He insinuates, ‘Your sins are too great for pardon; you have no faith; you do not repent enough; you […]
“The precious blood of Christ.” 1 Peter 1:19 Standing at the foot of the cross, we see hands, and feet, and side, all distilling crimson streams of precious blood. It is “precious” because of its redeeming and atoning efficacy. By it the sins of Christ’s people are atoned for; they are redeemed from under the […]
Faith in the Lord Jesus is the very key of salvation. He that has it has life, and he that has it not has not life. Nothing whatever beside this faith is necessary to our complete justification; but nothing whatever, except this faith, will give us an interest in Christ. We may fast and mourn […]
“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.” – John 10:27 “My SHEEP,” saith Christ, as he stands in the midst of his disciples. “My Shepherd,” let us one and all reply. All the sheep of Christ who have been redeemed by his power, become his by their own cheerful […]
“My sheep,” says Christ. They are his, furthermore, because, in addition to his choice and to the gift, he has bought them with a price. They had sold themselves for nought; but he has redeemed them, not with corruptible things as with silver and gold, but with his precious blood. C.H. Spurgeon (1834-1892)
