STOP THE MURMURING AND COMPLAINTS

Numbers 32:16-27 Here is the good effect of plain dealing. Moses, by showing their sin, and the danger of it, brought them to their duty, without murmuring or disputing.

SUDDENNESS OF CHANGE

  "And immediately the spirit driveth him into the wilderness." (Mark 1:12). It seemed a strange proof of Divine favour. "Immediately." Immediately after what?

Those who hate others are … Continue reading THERE IS NOTHING SAFE ABOUT SECRET SINS
