Preface - Amaziah beginneth his reign well. He gathereth a great army, and hireth a hundred thousand Israelites for a hundred talents of silver, but at the word of a prophet loseth the money, and dismisseth them, who depart in great anger. He smiteth the Edomites in the valley of salt. The offended Israelites on their return spoil the cities of Judah. Amaziah serveth the gods of Edom, and rejecteth the admonitions of a prophet. His challenge to Joash, which endeth in his overthrow, and in the taking and spoiling of Jerusalem. He is slain by a conspiracy at Lachish.
2 Chronicles 25
Preface - A woman clothed with the sun travaileth. A great red dragon standeth ready to devour her child. She is delivered, and fleeth into the wilderness. Michael and his angels fight with the dragon, who is cast out of heaven with his angels. The victory proclaimed in heaven. The dragon cast down to the earth persecuteth the woman.
Daily Light - Morning
The days of thy mourning
shall be ended.
In the world ye shall have tribulation. - The whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body. - We that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life.
These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
Isa. 60.20; Jn. 16.33; Ro. 8.22-23; 2 Co. 5.4
Daily Light - Evening
Master, carest thou not that we perish?
The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.
Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things. - While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.
The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him. - God heard the voice of the lad; and the angel of God called to Hagar out of heaven, and said unto her, What aileth thee, Hagar? fear not; for God hath heard the voice of the lad where he is... And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water; and she went, and filled the bottle with water, and gave the lad drink.
Take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink?...for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. - Trusgt...in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy.
Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

BAPTIST CONFESSION OF FAITH
Of Christ the Mediator
God has endued the will of man with that natural liberty and power of acting upon choice, that it is neither forced, nor by any necessity of nature determined to do good or evil.1
1 Matt. 17:12; James 1:14; Deut. 30:19

A dying boy's testimony
And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment. - John 16 v 8
There is, perhaps, no subject upon which there is greater ignorance that that of the Spirit of God. Most people, in our day, if they answered truly, would say as those twelve men at Ephesus: 'We have not so much as heard whether there be nay Holy Ghost' (Acts 19 v 2). And yet, if ever you are to be saved, you must know him; for it is all His work to bring a poor prisoner to Christ. A little boy, when dying, said: 'Three persons in the Godhead. God the Father made and preserved me; God the Son came into the world and died for me; God the Holy Ghost came into my heart, and made me love God and hate sin.' My dear friends, if you would die happy, you must be able to bear the same dying testimony.
