Welcome

Welcome! This website is for anyone who is seeking to learn more about God's word.

You now have the option to read our Bible studies in a variety of languages. Just select your language from the drop down box which appears in the right hand column of every page.

I am close to finishing reformatting the book of Numbers. I know it has been slow going, but I have had many other ministry demands from which I am now free. So, progress should be much quicker.

There is a wonderful book published in 1867 by Henry Law entitled Christ is All: The Gospel in the Pentateuch. I will begin posting one chapter each day, Monday thru Saturday. I am certain that you will enjoy it and be able to use it in the preparation of lessons or sermons.

Thank you for visiting this site and for your interest in learning and distributing God's Holy Word. May God bless you and use you in mighty ways. If you are a new Christian or an unbeliever seeking truth, let me suggest that you begin with the book of Matthew. The life and testimony of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will bring you joy and blessings beyond belief.

Seeing Is Not Believing

John 6:34-36

34 Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread. 35 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. 36 But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me, and believe not.


Jesus said, "For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world." (v.33)

The crowd's reply to that was, "Lord, evermore give us this bread." (v.34) It is doubtful that they understood what Jesus meant. At best, they were still looking for their bellies to be filled. The manna in the wilderness was said to have satisfied their forefather's every desire.

John Gill, commenting on this verse, reports that, "Josephus says of the "manna", which was a type of this bread, that there was such a divine quality in it, that whoever tasted of it needed nothing else: and the Jews also say, that "in the manna were all kinds of tastes, and everyone of the Israelites tasted all that he desired; for so it is written in Deuteronomy 2:7, "these forty years the Lord thy God hath been with thee, thou hast lacked nothing", or "not wanted anything"; what is anything? when he desired to eat anything, and said with his mouth, O that I had fat to eat, immediately there was in his mouth the taste of fat.--Young men tasted the taste of bread, old men the taste of honey, and children the taste of oil.''  Read More



THE CONSOLATION

"He will comfort us." Genesis 5:29


Thus speaks the patriarch Lamech. Such is his voice of joy, when he receives his first-born Noah. He was tilling a soil hardened by the curse—fruitful only in thorns and thistles. But now a son is given to share the painfulness of his daily toil. Cheered by this hope, he calls his name Noah, which has the meaning of Rest or Comfort. Reader! in these simple pages there is but one thing sought: the best good of undying souls. Therefore I examine not whether this name was designed as another ray of the coming Savior. I rather proceed to realities, which all experience. I rather turn to tidings, which are bright on the Gospel surface.

I first state a fact, which is ancient as the fall, and wide-spread as man. It is this—A sinful world is a tearful world. Wherever we stand, our shadow is sorrow. It s so before the flood. It is so now. In all climates and ranks, the head is weary, and the heart is sick.

I next state a truth, which came in, as twin-born, with the earliest promise. It is this—Consolation is provided. God has sent forth Christ Jesus from the bosom of His love to be the Consolation of this woe-worn world. It is my longing desire that this heavenly knowledge would more largely shed its pure balm. I mourn that men should drink nothing but the dregs of bitterness, while healing streams flow close beside them. Let me invite you, then, to come with me for a few moments into some of the chambers of earth's grief. I can show you there, with the Spirit helping, that in Jesus Christ there is a pillow for the throbbing brow—a cordial for the fainting spirit—a plank for the sinking—a haven for the tempest-tossed.   Read More
