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.

The Father's Gift

John 6:37-40

37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. 38 For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. 39 And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. 40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.


The crowd at Capernaum had seen Jesus, had heard His teachings, had seen His miracles and had failed to believe in Him. The above passage is His response to their unbelief. It is both an invitation for them to come to Him and an assurance of security for those who come.

"All that the Father giveth me shall come to me." Jesus was not here in vain. Mankind was enslaved by sin and was naturally inclined to reject the salvation that Jesus offered, but God had given some to Jesus. This is the doctrine of election, that God had chosen His saints before the foundation of the world according to His own pleasure. (Eph 1:4-5) It is the fulfillment of the prophecy of Isaiah 53:11, which promises that Jesus' sufferings would be profitable, saying, "He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities." Thus, the Father gives the elect to Jesus in order that they might be saved.

Secondly, we are told of the power of God's grace. Each one whom He has chosen to give to Jesus will, of his own free will, come to Him. The Holy Spirit will give each of them an understanding of the gospel and will convince them that they should come. They are not forced to come, but are drawn to Jesus by the irresistible truth of God's word. This is the truth to which all of mankind has been blinded by their own sins. All persons are invited to come and partake of the grace of God, but they reject the invitation. God's election is therefore not unfair, since no one deserves the gift of eternal life.  Read More



THE GOSPEL IN GENESIS

by Henry Law - 1867

THE ALTAR

"Noah built an altar unto the Lord." Genesis 7:20


To know the sanctifying power of grace, we must trace its actings in holy men. A machine of many wheels is a complex puzzle, until each part is seen in motion and in work. Thus it is by close study of godly models, that we learn what spiritual temples can arise from vile materials of earth; and how poor sinners, weak as we are, can become courageous like heroes in the field of trial.

The scene may vary with the sun and with the cloud. But still some prominent marks can never be obscured. The child of God will always exhibit—ready obedience to a heavenly Father's will—undoubting trust in His Word—calm submission to His guidance—constant approach to Him through reconciling blood—and hallowed joy in prayer and praise. It is no tree of faith, if it is not laden with these fruits. It is no purified metal if it is not stamped with this image. It is no heaven-born soul unless it proves its descent by these features. It is no heavenward walk, except along this consecrated road.

The truth of this is written, as with a sunbeam, in the annals of Noah. God said, "Make an ark." The work, though strange, is instantly begun. The Lord calls, "Come, and all your house, into the ark." If there be perils without, there are also countless perils within. But in calm confidence he enters—and in following the Lord fully, he has all safety and all peace. Again the same voice speaks, "Go forth from the ark." He leaves his refuge to stand on the grave of a buried world. He had known the earth as the riot-house of evil; but now it is a noiseless solitude. He reads in one vast ruin the epitaph of sin. It is rightly concluded, that worship was his first employ. "Noah built an altar unto the Lord."   Read More
