THE ROARING LION'S FOLLY

For the Word of God and for the testimony of Jesus Christ the Apostle John was exiled to the lonely isle that is called Patmos and, if tradition may be believed, was sent to work in the mines. But from his mine John saw farther than any king ever saw from his throne; he saw more from his mine than any astronaut ever saw from his orbit, for the scroll of unborn history was spread out before him and he was permitted to see the unfolding of the purposes of God onward to the time when the New Jerusalem will descend out of heaven from God.

SATAN'S ATTEMPTS TO OUTWIT US

The devil is wise, and shrewdness is all that we may properly attribute to him, since sound moral judgment is an ingredient of wisdom and this the devil does not possess. Further thought might require that we modify our belief that he is shrewd in any other than the most superficial meaning of the word: for shrewdness carries with it ability to plan ahead successfully, and apparently the devil is unable to do this.

And since most of our self-anointed levelers begin pretty well down to scale, the total effect on society has not been to elevate, but to degrade.

THE GOD-APPROVED MAN

The argument of the apostles is that the man Jesus has been made higher than angels, higher than Moses and Aaron, higher than any creature in earth or heaven. And this exalted position He attained as a man.

BOWING TO CHRIST'S LORDSHIP

Salvation comes not by "accepting the finished work" or "deciding for Christ." It comes by believing on the Lord Jesus Christ, the whole, living, victorious Lord who, as God and man, fought our fight and won it, accepted our debt as His own and paid it, took our sins and died under them and rose again to set us free.
