Preface - The solemn offering of Solomon at Gibeon. God appeareth unto him there by night, and leaveth to his choice what blessing to ask: he asketh wisdom, to which God addeth riches and honour. Solomon's forces and opulence.
2 Chronicles 1
Preface - The apostle professeth to declare what he had formerly seen and known of the Word of life, to the end that others might have fellowship with him. The substance of his doctrine is, that to have fellowship with God, we must be holy as he is holy; and that if we confess our sins, we shall be forgiven through the blood of Christ.
1 John 1
Daily Light - Morning
Ye have an unction from the Holy One,
and ye know all things.
God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power. - It pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell. - Of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.
Thou anointest my head with oil. - The anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.
The Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
The Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

Having our hearts
sprinkled from an evil conscience.
If the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? - The blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.
We have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace.
When Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of calves and of goats, with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book, and all the people... Moreover he sprinkled with blood both the tabernacle, and all the vessels of the ministry. And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.

BAPTIST CONFESSION OF FAITH
Of Divine Providence
As the providence of God does in general reach to all creatures, so after a more special manner it takes care of His church, and disposes of all things to the good thereof.23

A day of double blessing
I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet. - Revelation 1 v 10
When God instituted the Sabbath in paradise, it is said, 'God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it.' He not only set it apart as a sacred day, but made it a day of blessing. Again, when the Lord Jesus rose from the dead on the first day of the week before dawn, He revealed Himself the same day to two disciples going to Emmaus, and made their hearts burn within them (Luke 24 v. 13). The same evening He came and stood in the midst of the disciples, and said, 'Peace be unto you,' and He breathed on them and said, 'Receive ye the Holy Ghost' (John 20 v. 19).
Again, after eight days, - that is, the next Lord's day, - Jesus came and stood in the midst, and revealed Himself with unspeakable grace to unbelieving Thomas (John 20 v. 26). It was on the Lord's day also that the Holy Spirit was poured out at Pentecost (Acts 2 v. 1; compare Lev. 23 vs. 15-16). That beginning of all spiritual blessings, that first revival of the Christian Church, was on the Lord's day. It was on the same day that the beloved John, an exile on the sea-girt isle of Patmos, far away from the assembly of the saints, was filled with the Holy Spirit, and of the world, and in every place where there is a believer, the Sabbath has been a day of double blessing. It is so still, and will be, though all God's enemies should gnash their teeth at it. True, God is a God of free grace, and confines His working to no time or place; but it is equally true, and all the scoffs of the infidel cannot alter it, that it pleases Him to bless His word most on the Lord's day. All God's faithful ministers in every land can bear witness that sinners are converted most frequently on the Lord's day - that Jesus comes in and shows Himself through the lattice of ordinances oftenest on His own day. Saints, like John, are filled with the Spirit on the Lord's day, and enjoy their calmest, deepest views into the eternal world.
