cannot serve God and mammon--When when you were slaves of sin, you
were free in regard to righteousness. Therefore what benefit were you then
deriving from the things of which you are now ashamed? For the outcome of
those things is death. But now having been freed from sin and enslaved to
God, you derive your benefit, resulting in sanctification, and the outcome,
Christ is the end of
the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.

for...he erected altars for Baal...and worshiped all the host of heaven and
served them... and he made his son pass through the fire, practiced
witchcraft and used divination and dealt with mediums and spiritists. He did
much evil in the sight of the LORD provoking Him to anger --And when he was
in distress, he entreated the LORD his God and humbled himself greatly
before the God of his fathers. When he prayed to Him, He was moved by his
entreaty and heard his supplication.

HOW THE SONG OF THE LORD BEGAN
"When the burnt offering
began, the Song of the Lord began."--
"They sing as it were a new
Song before the Throne." --
HEZEKIAH, AT the age of
twenty-five, came to the throne, and set himself to reverse his
father's evil policy. The doors of the Temple were re-opened, and
under his direction the Levites were commissioned to cleanse the
desecrated courts of the rubbish and filth that had been allowed
to accumulate. After eight days of strenuous labour, they were
able to report that their work was successfully accomplished; that
the altar of burnt-offering and the table of shewbread were ready
for the renewal of their wonted service. It was good news, and in
the early morning of a memorable day, the king, accompanied by his
princes and officers of state, took part in a solemn service of
re-dedication. Amid the tense expectancy of the vast congregation
which had assembled, Hezekiah commanded that the burnt sacrifice
should be offered; and "when the burnt-offering began, the song of
the Lord began also."
These ancient sacrifices
have passed for ever. "Sacrifice and offering Thou dost not
desire; mine ears hast Thou pierced (nailing me to Thy Cross);
burnt-offering and sin-offering hast Thou not required. Then said
I, Lo, I come, I delight to do Thy will, O my God!" To yield up
one's life to the Saviour, to surrender our lives for others for
His sake, to maintain the steadfast resolve of
self-sacrifice,--this surely fulfils the conception of the
burnt-offering, which the king ordered that morning as the symbol
of national devotion to the Will of God. Can we wonder that the
Song of the Lord began also? Does not that same Song arise in
every heart when the sacrifice of love and obedience begins?
It is the self-contained
life that has made itself snug within its four walls, sound-proof,
sorrow-proof, as it thinks, and love-proof, which is song-less and
Our Lord said: "'Whosoever
shall lose his life for My sake shall find it." That finding is
the correlative and source of the "Song of the Lord.'" Unite
thyself with Jesus on the Cross, and one day thou wilt find
thyself sharing with Him the New Song of accomplished Redemption!
Give us loving and thankful
hearts. May Thy mercies bind us like cords to the horns of the
Altar. Let our whole nature be consecrated for Thine indwelling,
and as the burnt-offering begins, may the Song of the Lord begin
also in our hearts. AMEN.

(Read C H Spurgeon's testimony
- It is miraculous as is EVERY testimony of the new birth)
Mountains Turned to Plains
"Who art thou, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a
plain; and he shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shoutings,
crying, Grace, grace unto it" (Zechariah 4:7).
At this hour a mountain of difficulty, distress, or necessity may be in
our way, and natural reason sees no path over it, or through it, or round
it. Let faith come in, and straightway the mountain disappears and becomes
a plain. But faith must first hear the word of the LORD--"Not by might,
nor by power, but by my Spirit, saith the LORD of hosts." This grand truth
is a prime necessity for meeting the insurmountable trials of life. I see
that I can do nothing and that all reliance on man is vanity. "Not by
might." I see that no visible means can be relied on, but the force is in
the invisible Spirit. God alone must work, and men and means must be
nothing accounted of. If it be so that the Almighty God takes up the
concerns of His people, then great mountains are nothing. He can remove
worlds as boys toss balls about or drive them with their foot. This power
He can lend to me. If the LORD bids me move an Alp I can do it through His
name. It may be a great mountain, but even before my feebleness it shall
become a plain; for the LORD hath said it. What can I be afraid of with
God on my side?
MORNING AND EVENING
Morning, Nov 25
o preach deliverance to the captives.”
None but Jesus can give deliverance to captives. Real liberty cometh
from him only. It is a liberty righteously bestowed; for the Son,
who is Heir of all things, has a right to make men free. The saints
honour the justice of God, which now secures their salvation. It is
a liberty which has been dearly purchased. Christ speaks it by his
power, but he bought it by his blood. He makes thee free, but it is
by his own bonds. Thou goest clear, because he bare thy burden for
thee: thou art set at liberty, because he has suffered in thy stead.
But, though dearly purchased, he freely gives it. Jesus asks nothing
of us as a preparation for this liberty. He finds us sitting in
sackcloth and ashes, and bids us put on the beautiful array of
freedom; he saves us just as we are, and all without our help or
merit. When Jesus sets free, the liberty is perpetually entailed; no
chains can bind again. Let the Master say to me, “Captive, I have
delivered thee,” and it is done forever. Satan may plot to enslave
us, but if the Lord be on our side, whom shall we fear? The world,
with its temptations, may seek to ensnare us, but mightier is he who
is for us than all they who be against us. The machinations of our
own deceitful hearts may harass and annoy us, but he who hath begun
the good work in us will carry it on and perfect it to the end. The
foes of God and the enemies of man may gather their hosts together,
and come with concentrated fury against us, but if God acquitteth,
who is he that condemneth? Not more free is the eagle which mounts
to his rocky eyrie, and afterwards outsoars the clouds, than the
soul which Christ hath delivered. If we are no more under the law,
but free from its curse, let our liberty be practically exhibited in
our serving God with gratitude and delight. “I am thy servant, and
the son of thine handmaid: thou hast loosed my bonds.” “Lord, what
wilt thou have me to do?”
Evening, Nov 25
“For he saith to Moses, I will
have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion
on whom I will have compassion.”
In these words the Lord in the plainest manner claims the right to
give or to withhold his mercy according to his own sovereign will.
As the prerogative of life and death is vested in the monarch, so
the Judge of all the earth has a right to spare or condemn the
guilty, as may seem best in his sight. Men by their sins have
forfeited all claim upon God; they deserve to perish for their
sins—and if they all do so, they have no ground for complaint. If
the Lord steps in to save any, he may do so if the ends of justice
are not thwarted; but if he judges it best to leave the condemned
to suffer the righteous sentence, none may arraign him at their
bar. Foolish and impudent are all those discourses about the
rights of men to be all placed on the same footing; ignorant, if
not worse, are those contentions against discriminating grace,
which are but the rebellions of proud human nature against the
crown and sceptre of Jehovah. When we are brought to see our own
utter ruin and ill desert, and the justice of the divine verdict
against sin, we no longer cavil at the truth that the Lord is not
bound to save us; we do not murmur if he chooses to save others,
as though he were doing us an injury, but feel that if he deigns
to look upon us, it will be his own free act of undeserved
goodness, for which we shall forever bless his name.
How shall those who are the subjects of divine election
sufficiently adore the grace of God? They have no room for
boasting, for sovereignty most effectually excludes it. The Lord’s
will alone is glorified, and the very notion of human merit is
cast out to everlasting contempt. There is no more humbling
doctrine in Scripture than that of election, none more promotive
of gratitude, and, consequently, none more sanctifying. Believers
should not be afraid of it, but adoringly rejoice in it.

THE PRAYER WHICH ENDS IN SACRIFICE
1Kings 8:54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66.
AND that is the healthy order of all true worship. It begins in spacious
supplication in which “the stranger” finds a place. Then there is a lavish
consecration of self and substance. And then the wedding-bells begin to
ring, and “the joy of the Lord is our strength!” “They went unto their
tents joyful and glad of heart for all the goodness that the Lord had
But so many suppliants miss the middle term, and therefore the gladness is
wanting. Supplication is not followed by consecration, and therefore there
is no exultation. It is a fatal omission. When we are asking for “the gift
of God” our request must be accompanied by the gift of ourselves to God.
If we want the water we must offer the vessel. No gift of self, no bounty
of God! No losing, no finding! “When the burnt offering began, the song of
the Lord began.”
“Take my life, and let it be
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee.”
"Year Book" 1895
"It has been granted to you on behalf of Christ, not only to
believe on him, but also to suffer for him." Philippians 1:29
We cannot know in what way we can best glorify God. It may be in
hard work; it may be in quiet waiting; it may be in painful
suffering. It is better, therefore, that we let God choose the way
in which he would have us serve and honor him. The bird glorifies
God—by singing its sweet song; the flower glorifies God—by pouring
out its fragrance. Mary praised Christ—by sitting at his feet,
Martha—by serving him. If we simply obey his will—that will always
be the best.

-Dancing Boys of Afghanistan
“Shara!” Shara’s neighbor ran toward her in the marketplace. “I
just saw your son with other dancing boys! He was going off with a
wealthy older man.” Shara’s eyes filled with tears. Her son was
only 12. “Yes, I know, but there are thousands of shoe-shine boys,
fruit-selling boys, and water boys. He could get no work, and we
have no food since my husband died. What else are we to do?”
The evil practice of Bacha Bazi, literally “playing with boys” is
the practice of older, rich men paying a boy a monthly sum; in
return the boy must satisfy any wishes of the older man whenever
he asks. Since Afghan women are not allowed to dance, the boys are
forced to dress as women and dance before groups of leering men
for hours. At the end of the party they are taken away and
sexually abused for two dollars. The main voice against this
practice comes from the Taliban.

Pray for a hedge of protection around these boys. Pray that
compassionate followers of Christ will come forward to introduce
them to the Savior who promises abundant life in Him. Pray that
Jesus will reveal himself to the Afghan people and awaken their
hearts and minds to the goodness of the One True God who loves
them and wants to save them from oppressive sin.
This is the way of an adulteress: she eats and wipes her mouth and
says, “I have done no wrong.”
This is how all mankind acts: we naturally claim that we have done
no wrong. In our fallen ways we are very adept at making excuses
for ourselves. What will it take to change that? Only a work of
the Holy Spirit can change our stubborn hearts!
Pray for the Holy Spirit to soften Pashtun hearts so that they
will become pliable in the Lord’s hands.

Bryon Paulus, director

revival is failure to pray, to plead, to intercede, to cry out.
Leonard Ravenhill summed it up...
doesn't need to pray. The self-sufficient doesn't want to
self-righteous cannot pray!
Paulus commented: "Those three
principles apply to revival: We are so self-satisfied that
we don't want revival, so
self-sufficient that we think we don't need revival, and so
self-righteous that we can't have revival." (Ouch!)

God addressed Israel
in the following famous passage but the timeless principle is
apropos to believers in America ...
If I shut up the heavens so
that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the
land, or if I send pestilence among My people,
and My people who are called by My name humble themselves
and pray, and seek My face and turn from
their wicked ways,
then I will hear
from heaven, will forgive their sin, and will heal
their land. (2Chr 7:13, 14)
J. Barton Payne writes that
"This great verse, the best known in all Chronicles, expresses as
does no other in Scripture God’s requirement for national
blessing, whether in Solomon’s land, in Ezra’s, or in our own.
Those who believe must forsake their sins, turn from the life that
is centered in self, and yield to God’s word and will. Then, and
only then, will heaven send revival."
May God grant His children
grace to plead for a Spirit driven, God glorifying, Word centered,
Christ exalting revival of the Body of Christ in America.
First of all, then, I urge that
entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on
behalf of all men, for kings and all who are in authority, in
order that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness
and dignity. (1Ti 2:1,2)
Our Heavenly Father
desires to hear His children cry out with "fasting, sackcloth and
ashes" (Da 9:3), reflecting not the external appearance of our
bodies, but more accurately the internal condition of our hearts -
sinful (Da 9:5 - "we" not "they"!), rejecting His Holy Word
(Da 9:6-"we"), shameful (Da 9:8-"us"), contrite, and
broken (Ps 51:17), over our national rejection of God's righteous
and holy Name...
Daniel's prayer (Da 9:3,
4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19) is an
excellent "template" for all saints to emulate as we begin to
intercede with a sense of urgency for
America and especially for God's Name and reputation considering
that the world thinks of us as a "Christian nation" and we once
called ourselves "One Nation Under God"!
Matthew Henry's comments
on Lev 26:40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46 (directed first to Israel but
applicable to any nation that rejects Him)
Among the Israelites, persons
were not always prosperous or afflicted according to their
obedience or disobedience. But national prosperity was the
effect of national obedience, and national judgments
were brought on by national wickedness. Israel was under a
National wickedness will end
in the ruin of any people,

Sooner or later, sin will be
the ruin, as well as the reproach, of every people.
Oh that, being humbled for
we might avert the rising storm before it bursts upon us!
(Note: Henry's comments
were published in 1706 and national revival, the
First Great Awakening,
occurred in the 1730's and 1740's! Brethren, there is hope because
there is a "God of hope"! Ro 15:13)
