Now Playing: Look around for failure; look above for guidance
*** The only failure of an Old Testament saint recorded in the New Testament is that of Elijah making intercession to God against Israel (Romans 11:2-3).
*** The book of Proverbs gives us heavenly wisdom for an earthly pathway.
*** "The children ought not to lay up for the parents, but the parents for the children" (2 Cor. 12:14), and that does not just mean money!
*** What are we in the world for, to get rich - no - we are here to learn the manifold grace and wisdom of God.
*** No ceremonial is worth a straw if the heart does not honour Christ.
*** By religious forms, man is made religious without possessing holiness. Anything that exalts man is not of God.
*** False religion will send more people to hell than anything else.
*** Christianity is not an adjunct of Judaism but an entirely separate and distinct work of God.
*** Not one thing that you know is the result of your reason; it is either testimony or experience. What do you know? - Did reason tell you or faith?

*** Do not look at the people that persecute you, but the reason why you are persecuted.
*** God never takes us out of the difficulties into which our folly has plunged us, but He will be with us in them.
*** The Christian is not a changed man, he is a new creation.
*** Are you going to the Exhibition? If you knew the exhibition that is before my soul you wouldn't ask me.

*** Never disturb the peace of the assembly unless the glory of God demands it.
*** If I were asked what characterizes this present dispensation I would say the presence of the Holy Spirit as a divine Person here on earth.
*** The Lord's coming - the moment when Christ takes His bride - is the moment for which all other moments were made for the Christian.
*** It is wonderful to lay our head on our pillow at night and know that we have walked with God through the day. Keep it as a sweet secret!
*** If it gives you pleasure to speak about the failures of your brethren, you are not walking with God.
*** Do not expect righteousness from an unrighteous world.
*** When we give to the Lord [of our resources] He repays so bountifully that we are ashamed to take it.
*** When heaven was opened upon Jesus, it looked down with delight -- we look up and are changed.
*** If you could have chosen a period of time in which to have lived you couldn't have chosen a more blessed time than the present - especially with the Lord's coming so imminent.
