James Volume by Guy N. Woods Completed!

This commentary set is available in Print form across the
Internet. In this e-Sword module the Notes
and Commentary
by Lipscomb are to be found in the Chapter Notes and Verse
Notes of the Volumes written by Lipscomb. The same can be
said for the Volumes written by H. Leo Boles,
C.E.W. Dorris,
Guy N. Woods, Robert Milligan and John T. Hinds. Also note
that much of Lipscomb's work is due in part to the editorial
work of J.W. Shepherd, who completed some of Lipscomb's
work after Lipscomb died on November 11, 1917. Also to be
included in this work are the commentaries of Matthew, Mark
and Acts as authored by J.W. McGarvey (even though his
works were not originally published by the Gospel Advocate.
They do much to complement the works of the other authors).

File Submitter: djmarko53

File Submitted: 12 Jan 2019

File Category: Reference Books (refx)

makes allowance for Leap Year. Includes 732 Devotionals
with great Notes and Commentary. Also includes the
following Devotions by Spurgeon:

1. For the Day of a Death or Funeral
2. For a Time of Trouble
3. For a Wedding

Completed: January thru December.

This .refi (HD) Reference work requires Version 11.2 of
e-Sword to run on your PC. Also runs on iPad and iPhone
as well as on your PC.

Below is the Morning Devotion for January 12th:

January 12—Morning
"I am thy shield."

Gen 15:1-18

Gen 15:1
Let those fear who touch the Lord's anointed, but as for those
who trust in the living God they have no cause for alarm. Five
kings or fifty kings may come against them, but while Jehovah
defends them they are secure. Perhaps the Lord saw a rising
fear in Abram's mind, and therefore came to him with this word
of comfort: God is not willing that his servants should be in
bondage to fear.

Gen 15:4
The strongest faith has its conflicts. Abram's heart was set upon
being the progenitor of the Messiah, and he believed in the
promise of God that he should be so, but still it appeared
mpossible, for he had no son, nor did it appear likely that he
would ever have one. It is wise always to spread our doubts
before the Lord, for he can meet them for us.

Gen 15:6
Over the head of every difficulty and physical impossibility he
believed in God; and therefore he stood accepted as righteous
before the Lord.

Gen 15:7-11
The sacrifice ratifying the covenant is the most satisfying food
for faith. Let us see Jesus confirming the promises and we are
content. True, a few distracting questions like these ravenous
birds will molest us, but by faith we chase them away. When the
Lord covenanted with his servant over the bodies of the beasts
slain in sacrifice, he gave him the strongest possible confirmation;
and in the death of Jesus we have solid assurance that the
promises shall all be fulfilled.

Gen 15:17
This symbolised the history of the chosen seed: the furnace of
affliction with its darkening smoke is often theirs, but the lamp of
God's salvation is never removed from them.

Gen 15:18
Thus was the fear of Abram cured by the covenant: let us ever
resort to the same remedy.

'Tis mine the covenant of grace,
And every promise mine;
All flowing from eternal love,
And sealed by blood divine.

On my unworthy, favour'd head,
Its blessings all unite;
Blessings more numerous than the stars,
More lasting and more bright.

That covenant the last accent claims
Of this poor faltering tongue;
And that shall the first notes employ
Of my celestial song.

Below is the Evening Devotion for January 27th:

January 27—Evening
"His banner over me was love."

Gen 43:15-16; Gen 43:18-23; Gen 43:26-34
So deeply interesting is this story of Joseph, that we
must needs linger over it. The Holy Spirit indulges us
with details, and we may be sure that he intended our
profit thereby.

Gen 43:15-16
Thus Joseph's love sought an opportunity for closer
personal intercourse with them.

Gen 43:18
Love intended pleasure, but fear turned it into dread.
Beware of doubts and mistrusts of the Lord Jesus, lest
even his goodness should make us afraid.

Gen 43:19-22
Open confession was natural to honest men when in
fear; it is also the ready way to peace with God.

Gen 43:23
The hostage being delivered all was well. The bringing
of our Lord Jesus from the dead was a token for good
to all his brethren.

Gen 43:28
By calling their father "thy servant," and making
obeisance for themselves and him, they fulfilled his
second dream. The sun and the moon and the eleven
stars did him homage.

Gen 43:29-30
Love longs to express itself, but there is a time for
everything. Jesus loves his brethren always, but he
prudently conceals himself at times for their good.

Gen 43:31-34
How they must have wondered while they feasted
to see the order in which he placed them, and the
favour shown to Benjamin. How plainly everything
said, "I am. Joseph" yet they perceived him not;
and just so, despite all the loving deeds of Jesus,
none ever discover him till he reveals himself by
his Spirit.

Speak to us, Lord, thyself reveal,
While here on earth we rove;
Speak to our hearts and let us feel
The kindlings of thy love.

With thee conversing, we forget
All time, and toil, and care;
Labour is rest, and pain is sweet,
If thou, our God, art there.
