Jottings – All Movements Among Men are Under Divine Control

“Future


Commenting on Ezekiel 1:15-21 ~

 

And there are wheels within wheels, so arranged that we cannot follow their intricacies. But we see them everywhere, different principles working at one and the same time, in the world, in politics, in the church, in all phases of human society. So true is this that the mind becomes bewildered trying to keep all the different movements in mind, until we are tempted to think that all is utter confusion, and there is neither order nor sanity in the universe. But the spirit of the living creature is in the wheels and all are controlled by a higher power than the merely human, or blind chance, or what men call fate. Moreover, there are eyes in the wheels, and these speak of intelligence and careful discernment and discrimination. “The eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding the evil and the good” (Prov. 15:3); and, “The eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward Him” (2 Chron. 16:9). Those eyes are ever over the righteous, and His ear is open to their cry (Ps. 34:15). And so as the wheels move on, though so high that we are unable to comprehend fully what God is doing, we may rest in this precious truth, that nothing moves but at His command or by His permission. In the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God’s long toleration of evils—His apparent indifference to the cruelties practised against His people and the wicked behavior of those who seemed to triumph for a time while the righteous suffered in silence—will all be made clear, and we shall see that though the wheels were high and the mysteries of the divine government beyond our present ability to comprehend, yet all were under His control who was working according to plan in a way that puny man little realized. The wheels have never been separated from the living creatures. Nothing is left to chance. All movements among men are under divine control, and even Satan can act only as God gives permission, as we see in the account of His dealings with the patriarch Job.

Jotting – When God’s People Rise Up As An Enemy Against God

““


Commenting on Micah 2:8-10

 

But if the professed people of God “rise up as an enemy,” and refuse to heed His Word (as in vers. 8 and 9), then comes the call for separation from what is unclean and unholy, “Arise ye, and depart; for this is not your rest: because it is polluted” (ver. 10). To continue in fellowship with what is opposed to God’s mind will result in desolation. We are called to “buy the truth, and sell it not.”

Jottings – Are You an Overcomer?

““


Commenting on Micah 2:

 

It is the will of God that those whom He has taken into covenant relationship with Himself should ever be overcomers. If it is otherwise, the fault is in them— not in Him. He has abundant resources for the believer to draw upon. But where unbelief and disobedience hold sway, spiritual paralysis must necessarily ensue.

Jottings – The Power Of The Old Nature Will Manifest Itself Through The Tongue


Commenting on James 3:8 ~~

 

Such is the power of the old nature that unless there is constant watchfulness and unceasing identification by faith with Christ in His death to sin, it will manifest itself through the tongue long after other evil propensities have been brought into subjection through the power of the cross as applied to the flesh.”

Jottings – The Secret of Holiness

The Secret of Holiness

“The secret of Christian holiness is heart-occupation with Christ Himself. As we gaze upon Him we become like Him. Do you want to be holy? Spend much time in His presence. Let the loveliness of the risen Lord so fill the vision of your soul that all else is shut out. Then the things of the flesh will shrivel up and disappear and the things of the Spirit will become supreme in your life. We do not become holy by looking into our own hearts. There we only find corruption. Instead we must look away from ourselves and “unto Jesus,” contemplating His holiness, purity, love, compassion, and devotion to the Father’s will. Then we shall be transformed, imperceptibly to ourselves perhaps but none the less surely into His blessed image.”

Jottings – The Full Height of New Testament Christian Worship

Jottings Pencil Red

Commenting on Psalm 28:2 KJV “‘Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto Thee, when I life up my hands toward Thy holy oracle.’ And now we get a suggestion here of the difference between Old Testament worship and New Testament worship. The Old Testament saint knew nothing of what you and I through grace should know and understand. In all of the Old Testament dispensation God was hidden behind a heavy veil. He dwelt in the thick darkness and only the high priest could push that aside and enter once a year, bearing the blood of atonement. But now it is altogether different. The Old Testament saint said, ‘I lift up my hands toward Thy holy oracle.’ But what about the New Testament saint? Look at Hebrews 10:19-22 KJV and see how different our position is, ‘Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way, which He hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, His flesh; And having an high priest over the house of God; Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water,’ or with ‘the water of purification,’ referring to the nineteenth chapter of Numbers, undoubtedly. Look at the difference. The Old Testament saint was truly a child of God, truly forgiven, but he knew nothing of immediate access into the holiest because the veil was not yet rent. The precious blood of Christ had not yet been shed, and so these Psalms do not rise to the full height of New Testament worship. That is why we need to be careful when we try to use [the Pslams] as vehicles of Christian praise, testimony, and adoration. The tone of worship never rises to the New Testament heights until we enter into the holiest through the value of the precious blood of Jesus. The Old Testament saint says, ‘I lift up my hands toward Thy holy oracle.’ Suppose I were to try to sing that today. I will not do anything of the kind. The oracle was the holiest of all. I belong in the holiest of all. I enter, in all the infinite value of the precious atoning blood of Christ. On the other hand, a great many of the Psalms are beautiful expressions of praise and worship, but they all reach just a certain height. You get the full height of Christian worship in the Revelation where we read, ‘Unto Him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in His own blood, And hath made us kings and priests unto God and His Father; to Him be glory and dominion for ever and ever’ (Rev. 1:5-6 KJV). I wish I could write music. I would like to write an anthem on those words, for that is what we are going to sing in Heaven”

Jottings – The Trinity of Truth

Jottings Pencil Red

“God is called the ‘God of truth’ (Isaiah 65:16). The Holy Spirit is the ‘Spirit of truth’ (John 16:13). Christ said, ‘I am…the truth’ (John 14:6). No one can have fellowship with the holy trinity who does not walk in the truth (2 John 4; 3 John 4). God desires truth in the inward parts (Psalm 51:6). Falsehood of every kind is hateful to Him. There is nothing that so manifests the alienation of the natural man from God as his tendency to falsehood. Of the wicked we are told that they go astray from their very birth speaking lies (Psalm 58:3). Satan himself is the father of lies (John 8:44). It is he who injects the venom of untruthfulness into the heart of man (Acts 5:3). Only by the new birth can this lying spirit be overcome. It is as the regenerated man yields himself to God as one alive from the dead that he learns to delight in the truth objectively revealed, and to walk in the truth subjectively.”

Jottings – Trafficking The Truth

Commenting on Matthew 23:1-12

It is a terrible thing for those who occupy the place of preachers or teachers of the Word when they simply traffic in truth that has never affected their own lives.

Jottings – Answered Prayer

Commenting on 2 Timothy 1:5 –

“I have in my desk an old, old photograph. It is a photograph of my great-grandfather, just a farmer in Aberdeenshire, Scotland.

The photograph is almost faded out with age, though I have tried to keep it covered from the light, because I wanted to have it as long as I might live, for this reason: I have been told many, many times by those who knew my great-grandfather—people who have long since gone home to heaven, but used to know me, and whom I knew as a child;—they told me how that great-grandfather of mine, at the close of every day, used to gather all his family,—and it was a large family—and all his farm-hands—and he had a large farm—about him and have family worship.

He always prayed for the salvation and the blessing of his children and his children’s children unto the third and fourth generations—and I come in there. As I look at the grizzled face of that old Scottish farmer I thank God for a godly heritage, and I thank Him for the way in which He has answered prayer.”
