Until or unless we are graced to observe that these revelations [of the Secret Administration] have no DELAYING effect whatever on the realization of our present hope, the necessary readjustment of understanding may become momentarily painful though there is no valid reason why it should.

The real miracle of December 25th is not the birth of Christ, but His conception:

It thus appears without the shadow of a doubt that the day assigned to the Birth of the Lord, viz., December 25, was the day on which He was “begotten of the Holy Spirit,” i.e., by pneuma hagion – divine power (Matthew 1:18, 20, marg.), and His birth took place on the 15th of Ethanim, September 29, in the year following, thus making beautifully clear the meaning of John 1:14, “The Word became flesh” (Matthew 1:18, 20) on the 1st Tebeth or December 25, “and tabernacled [Gr., eskenosen] with us,” on the 15th of Ethanim or September 29.

A believer needs to be fairly well grounded in the doctrinal portions of Romans before approaching the Mystery of Ephesians. … Paul had been charged with introducing innovations, preaching a self-evolved message, of altering laws and customs, and therefore before he defines his gospel he turns aside to declare that it was entirely in harmony with the Old Testament Scriptures, and indeed was the fulfillment of its promises. In Romans 1:17 he picks out one verse from an Old Testament prophet and makes it live for all time: “The just shall live by faith.”

I would rather be what God chose to make me than the most glorious creature that I could think of; for to have been born in God’s thought, and then made by God, is the dearest, grandest and most precious thing in all thinking.

Where Are the “Lost” Ten Tribes?

Israel, sometimes called Ephraim, from the principal tribe, was exiled long before Judah (including Benjamin) was deported to Babylon for seventy years, when it returned to the land. The ten tribes were first taken to Assyria, yet they did not return to Palestine. The question is often raised today, where are they now? That they are not all in Assyria is evident from the fact that they, as well as the Jews, will be gathered back from the “land of the north” (Jeremiah 23:8), and from all the kingdoms and nations of the Earth (Jeremiah 24:9; 29:14, 8; 32:37; 46:28). When the two sticks representing the divided kingdom, will be united in the future, the sons of Israel will be gathered from every side, so it is evident that they are scattered like the Jews, all over the earth.

God and His Son Glorified

Man-made theological attempts to exalt Christ beyond what is specifically revealed in Scripture result in a radical demeaning of the value of His obedience and accomplishments on our behalf. Man, however sincerely, cannot add to Jesus’ greatness by making Him something that Scripture does not. In fact, any attempt to do so significantly subtracts from the greatness of the biblical message. When we let the Word of God speak for itself and allow every piece of the puzzle to fit together without squeezing it to fit our own traditions or preconceived notions, both God and His Son are glorified, reason is satisfied.

Be still, and know that I am God (Psalm 46:10).

As a photographer, sometimes I find myself working so hard to get just the right shot and then I lower the camera from my eye and just observe. I find that before I can capture a beautiful shot, I have to be still and see the beauty in what I’m photographing. I have never yet been successful in forcing beauty into a picture. If I don’t see it, I can’t capture it. Be still is precisely the advice that I need sometimes.
