NOVEMBER 9 MORNING
I have laid help upon one that is mighty; I have exalted one chosen out
of the people.–PSA. 89:19.
I, even I, am the Lord; and beside me there is no saviour.–There is
one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ
Jesus.–There is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby
we must be saved.
The mighty God.–Who made himself of no reputation, and took upon him
the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: and being
found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient unto
death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly
exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name.–We see
Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of
death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God
should taste death for every man.–Forasmuch . . . as the children are
partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the
Isa. 43:11. -I Tim. 2:5. -Acts 4:12.Isa. 9:6. -Phi. 2:7-9. -Heb. 2:9.
NOVEMBER 9 EVENING
Gather my saints together unto me, those that have made a covenant with
me by sacrifice.–PSA. 50:5.
Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that
look for him shall he appear the second time, without sin, unto
salvation.–He is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of
death, . . . they which are called might receive the promise of eternal
Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me
where I am.–Then he shall send his angels, and shall gather together
his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth, to
the uttermost part of heaven.–If any of thine be driven out unto the
outmost parts of heaven, from thence will the Lord thy God gather thee,
and from thence will he fetch thee.
The dead in Christ shall rise first: then we which are alive and remain
shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet be Lord in
the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
