Storm Warning

Taken from a gospel tract published by Bible Truth Publishers in the USA.

One evening, many years ago, before the days of radio, Captain Oldrey and the crew of his ship, the Hyacinth, were sailing toward Barbados, a tropical island on the eastern edge of the Caribbean Sea. Before retiring for the evening, he spent a little time on deck simply admiring the beauty of the evening. He remarked to one of his crew that it was the finest weather he had seen in that climate.

The horizon was perfectly clear — not a cloud in the sky. There was nothing visible above deck to suggest that the weather might soon change.

Gain or Loss

This meditation is taken from the Good Seed daily Bible calendar, published by GBV in Germany.

What things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ. Yes indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord. Philippians 3:7.8

Wisdom

Taken from the Good Seed daily calendar, published by GBV in Germany.

Oh, that they were wise, that they understand this, that they would consider their latter end! Deuteronomy 32:29.

The lack of wisdom among the people of Israel at that time makes us think of the dreadful ignorance that is widespread in the world today. It is not a matter of a lack of intelligence, but rather ignorance as to what everyone really should know.

The mechanism of the heavens

Science and the Bible

This meditation is taken from the calendar The Good Seed printed by GBV Germany. The date of the meditation is 30 June 2020.

“By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God”. Hebrews 11.3

One day during the year 1892 an elderly gentleman was sitting in a compartment of a train reading the Bible on his journey. Next to him sat a young student who was engrossed in a scientific journal. After some time the young man asked his neighbour, “Do you really still believe in that ancient book full of fables and fairy tales?”

The Deserter

This story is taken from a book called “Come Home”, based on gospel stories compiled and published by Christian Book Room in Kowloon, Hong Kong. I just thought to share this touching and true story with you in the hope that you will put your trust and faith in Christ as your Saviour, and, if you already know Him as Saviour, the encouragement to draw nearer to Him who is loving and gracious.

On a dark, gloomy day, toward the close of 1877, a pale young man might be seen writing wearily at his desk in a London office. The thick fog had penetrated within, and only by the help of gas-light was work possible. However, with its aid, the row of clerks toiled diligently on in dreary silence, until the one next to our friend, suddenly throwing down his pen, drew to his side and whispered, “I say, Joe, chuck us a half-a-crown; I’m hard up for one.”

Insights on books of the Bible with chapter 3:16

This short article, or more like some notes, is to draw attention to all the books of the Bible with chapter 3:16 and see some similar patterns, trends, or key words. We all know John 3:16 as perhaps the most well-known verse in the whole Bible. But how many of us know the other books containing chapter 3:16 and the messages that God wants to tell us? This is an encouragement for a good study on these verses. Perhaps some of the chapter 3:16’s do not make sense as to why they belong there, but God put it there to tell us something.

Scripture quotes are taken from the King James Version (1611).

Overview of the Psalms

The book of Psalms is a very interesting and detailed book, composed of a collection of psalms and praises to God. It could also be called ‘the book of praises.’ Have you ever wondered that many of the children’s Sunday school songs and classic hymns sung in churches come from this wonderful book of Psalms? The Psalms presents to us some different perspectives and angles. One of these is the expression of the Old Testament believer going through trials, or seeing the wicked people seemingly succeed, or expressing their thanks and gratitude to God who delivers them out of trials and praising God. Another aspect is prophetic, and points to the Lord Jesus Christ. These psalms are referred to as ‘Messianic psalms,’ and are of most importance and significance for personal study. Comparing the psalms quoted in the New Testament is also a healthy study.
