Appendix 1 - A Leaf from the Gospel of the Exact Sciences

The Witness of Arithmetic to Christ Appendices to Vol. 3 Psalms. APPENDIX I A LEAF FROM THE GOSPEL OF THE EXACT SCIENCES "Doth not nature itself teach you?" (1 Cor. xi. 14.)"There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification’ (chap. xiv. 10). The natural sciences need to be converted to Christ. Nature indeed does not: for (apart from man, the crown of it,) it has never fallen from Him. It knew at the beginning the touch of Hi...

Ruth from "The Numerical Bible"

The Book of Ruth, from "The Numerical Bible"SCOPE AND DIVISIONS OF RUTH The Book of Ruth is plainly a history of the times of the judges, while as plainly it looks on to David and the kingdom. Thus it naturally stands between Judges and Kings (Samuel). Its spiritual meaning as plainly connects these together. In its literal sense it shows us how, spite of Israel’s failure, God’s salvation could go forward, even among the Gentiles themselves. For He does not leave Himself...

Nicolaitanism - The Rise and Growth of the Clergy

Nicolaitanism, Or The Rise and Growth of the ClerisyF.W. Grant "But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitanes, which I also hate. " "So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes, which thing I hate" - (Rev 2:6,15) The address to Pergamos follows that to Smyrna. This next stage of the Church’s journey in its departure (alas!) from truth may easily be recognized historically. It applies to the time when, after having passed through the heat...

The Bible Its Pentateuchal Structure

      THE Bible as a whole has sixty-three books; Samuel, Kings, and Chronicles being really only one each: our present division of them having been adopted from the Septuagint. And 63 = 7 X 32. Here we have, then, the symbol of perfection, and that of divine manifestation intensified,- "God glorified in His perfectly accomplished work."      It is, as God's testimony to man, divided into two parts, perfectly distinct, the Old Testament...

Breadth and Length and Depth and Height

   "BREADTH AND LENGTH AND DEPTH AND HEIGHT." (Ephesians iii. 18.)       HIS expression does not refer to the dimensions of the love of Christ, which the apostle immediately after represents as "passing knowledge," whereas he prays that they may be "able to comprehend what is the breadth and length and depth and height." Yet these things surely have a connection with one another. God's counsels and His ways are what give us the thoughts and actings of Di...

Broken Glimpses

   'And their eves were opened. and they knew Him, and He vanished out of their sight.' Luke xxiv 31.       HOW aptly does this describe what must have been the spiritual experience of most of us or all, at some time. The momentary glimpse caught, so sweet, so brief as to he almost a sorrow in memory, won as it would seem by effort, but which no effort could retain. Vhat is the meaning of this and what is its remedy? Is it normal for us, the necessit...

But One Thing is Needful

 "BUT ONE THING NEEDFUL."      A Lecture, at Plainfield, N. Y,      on Monday evening, August 4, 1884.       "Now it came to pass, as they went, that He entered into a certain village; and a certain woman named Martha received Him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus' feet, and heard His word. But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to Him, and said, '...

Christ's Work as Priest on Earth

      THE question of the Lord's having been a priest on earth is one to which, now that the attention of many is being drawn to it, should be given due and patient consideration. Mistake on this point may easily lead to further error, as should be plain to us, and there needs no apology for another review of the subject here, in which especially it is my desire to look at some things which as yet have had but brief and unsatisfactory notice in these pages, if any. ...

Bible Reading

     In the year 1914 F.W. Grant was deeply troubled about the declining interest in and appreciation for the Bible Reading meeting. In July of that year he wrote an article in "The Bible Treasury" entitled "The Neglect of the Reading Meeting". I conclude with some extended excerpts from that valuable article. "The Reading Meeting" is a great test of the state of an assembly; for it is there, if things be right that the knowledge, gathered in whatever way, is tested and made ...
