The Sweet Uses of Adversity

November 13, 1859

The Sweet Uses of Adversity   "Shew me wherefore thou contendest with me."—Job 10:2        And will God content with man? If God be angry, can he not take away the breath of his nostrils, and lay him low in the dust of earth? If the heart of the Almighty be moved unto hot displeasure, can he …

The Blood of the Everlasting Covenant   "The blood of the everlasting covenant."—Hebrews 13:20        All God’s dealings with men have had a covenant character.

A Divided Heart

A Divided Heart   "Their heart is divided; now shall they be found faulty."—Hosea 10:2        This passage may be taken as referring to the people of Israel as a nation, and it is not less applicable to the church of God.
