Chapter 32 The Everlasting Covenant

I will establish My covenant between Me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant (Genesis 17:7). There is no greater covenant in Scripture than the covenant which God made with Abraham. There are aspects of the covenant that affect Abraham personally—that he would be great, that a numerous people would spring from him, and that even kings would proceed from him. The possession of Palestine was an aspect which promised unconditional blessing to th...

Chapter 7 The Agonies of Christ

The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodly men made me afraid. The sorrows of hell compassed me about: the snares of death prevented me. In my distress I called upon the Lord, and cried unto my God: He heard my voice out of His temple, and my cry came before Him, even into His ears (Psalm 18:4-6). There is no doubt that this is a Messianic Psalm. There is a depth of suffering and a completeness of deliverance which have no parallel in David’s personal life—and it was...

Chapter 6 Worthy To Be Praised

I will love Thee, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies (Psalm 18:1-3). This is a fervid exclamation of a soul fully acquainted with God. The tongue would praise Him, but human language seems wholly inadequate. The struggling efforts to worthily praise the...

Chapter 5 A Type of Christ in Joshua

On that day the Lord magnified Joshua in the sight of all Israel (Joshua 4:14). There are several men in the Old Testament who stand out as eminent types or figures of the Lord Jesus. Joshua is one of them and we see him as a type in his name, in his office, and in his victory. Joshua’s Name His name was originally Oshea, but Moses changed it by divine inspiration to Jehoshua (Numbers 13:16). This was done, no doubt, to make him a very eminent type of the Redeemer to come. Joshua...

Chapter 4 The Blessing Of Joseph

Of Joseph he said, Blessed of the Lord (Deuteronomy 33:13). Joseph is an amazing type or picture of our Lord Jesus Christ. The brightest jewel in his father’s house, we see the sparkle of our Lord’s life in Joseph’s early grace—his persecuted youth, his rescue from the pit, his firm resistance to suggested evil, his prison sufferings, his exaltation to be a prince and ruler of all Egypt, his call to be the savior of his house—all is a wondrous window into the life of our Lord. J...

Chapter 3 The Voice of Judah

Hear, Lord, the voice of Judah (Deuteronomy 33:7). Judah is the cradle of Israel’s kings—the royal tribe to which belongs the throne, the sceptre, and the sway. It is from Judah that the Saviour came—“The Lion of the tribe of Judah.” It was in Judah’s house that the King of kings put on the flesh of our humanity. We therefore look for God’s special favor to fall upon this tribe of His choosing for such signal honor. The Power of Judah’s Prayers Judah’s tribe is pow...

Chapter 2 The Cities Of Refuge

There shall be six cities for refuge (Numbers 35:6). Refuge has a sweet sound—especially to a believer. It is as a haven to a storm-tossed ship. The Lord Jesus stands as a believer’s refuge and a safe and lasting shelter through endless days. A refuge is an asylum for persons to have recourse unto when their lives are in danger. These six cities were given to men to which they could flee, and to them the apostle alludes when he speaks to those who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon...
