They Speak of God

by Dr. George Bell

“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.” Psalm 19:1 The wonder of God’s artistry in the sky; the astounding clock of the heavens that always runs on time; the intricate pattern of the whirling spheres, glistening stars, and mysterious planets that hang suspended on unseen bands of energy, amaze […]

You’ll Lose Your Song

by Dr. George Bell

“Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord.” II Corinthians 6:17 The Lord wants a separated people for His service. No man can serve two masters; we are in the world but not of the world. Seeking to convert the world by our tolerance of their evils will result, not […]

A Fresh Anointing

by Dr. George Bell

“…I shall be anointed with fresh oil.” Psalm 92:10b Christians are always in danger of growing “stale” and “insipid”. How often we have heard people get up and give their testimony and repeat again and again the same old phrases of how they were saved 20, 30, 40 years ago. How often I wished they […]

Real or Plastic?

fruit bowl

“He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit.” John 15:5 Evidence of life is fruit and the nature of the fruit reveals the nature of the tree. Jesus said, “By their fruits ye shall know them.” But fruit can also be imitated and often is. My wife, for […]

What God Accepts

by Dr. George Bell

“Unto Adam also and to his wife did the Lord God make coats of skins, and clothed them.” Genesis 3:21 Here is the first mention of sacrifice in the Bible. Adam’s fig leaves had failed and now God comes and slays an animal, takes the skins, and cloths Adam. His sin is not only covered […]

Partly On and Partly Off

by Dr. George Bell

“…because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.” Revelation 3:16 Do you not find it strange that the Laodicean church which is especially condemned , and literally makes God sick (“spue” that is to vomit) is not accused of what we usually consider to be gross […]

Humility Before Honor

by Dr. George Bell

“…and before honor is humility.” (Proverbs 15:33b; 18:12b) “He (Christ) humbled himself.” “God also hath highly exalted him.” (Philippians 2:8, 9) The path to honor is the path of humility. He who is never humbled will never be exalted. Even Christ, in order to become our exalted Saviour, first humbled Himself. An ancient temple in […]

Which Is More Out Of Place?

by Dr. George Bell

“Come and hear,…and I will declare what he hath done for my soul.” (Psalm 66:16) Many souls have been brought to Christ by a personal word of testimony fitly spoken in due season. Witnessing is a spiritual exercise that must not be neglected if we desire the full joy of the “more abundant” life. Spiritual […]

What Might Have Been?

by Dr. George Bell

“…Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught (i.e. catching). And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net. And when they had this done, they enclosed a great multitude of fishes: […]

The Whisperer

by Dr. George Bell

“A forward man soweth strife: and a whisperer separateth chief friends.” Proverbs 16:28 Whispering! Is it not true, that the picture which first enters the mind when one hears or reads this word is that of two people standing in a corner, casting evil glances at someone, as their tongues whisper some choice garbage of […]
