Vine's Expository Dictionary of OT Words - Can, May
Yâkôl (יָכוֹל, Strong's #3201), “can, may, to be able, prevail, endure.” This word is used about 200 times in the Old Testament, from the earliest to the latest writings. It is also found in Assyrian and Aramaic. As in English, the Hebrew word usually requires another verb to make the meaning complete.Yâkôl first occurs in Gen. 13:6: “And the land was not able to bear them, that they might dwell together.…” God promised Abraham: “And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed also be numbered” (Gen. 13:16, NIV; cf. Gen. 15:5).
The most frequent use of this verb is in the sense of “can” or “to be able.” The word may refer specifically to “physical ability,” as in 1 Sam. 17:33: “You are not able to go against this Philistine to fight with him” (NASB). Yakol may express “moral inability,” as in Josh. 7:13: “… Thou canst not stand before thine enemies, until ye take away the accursed thing from among you.” For a similar sense, see Jer. 6:10: “Behold, their ear is uncircumcised, and they cannot hearken.…” In the negative sense, it may be used to express “prohibition”: “Thou mayest not eat within thy gates the tithe of thy corn …” (Deut. 12:17, NIV). Or the verb may indicate a “social barrier,” as in Gen. 43:32: “… The Egyptians might not eat bread with the Hebrews; for that is an abomination unto the Egyptians” (KJV, RSV, NIV, NASB, “could not”).Yâkôl is also used of God, as when Moses pleaded with God not to destroy Israel lest the nations say, “Because the Lord was not able to bring this people into the land … , therefore he hath slain them …” (Num. 14:16, NASB). The word may indicate a positive sense: “If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us …” (Dan. 3:17). The word yâkôl appears when God limits His patience with the insincere: “When the Lord could no longer endure your wicked actions … , your land became an object of cursing …” (Jer. 44:22, NIV)
When yâkôl is used without another verb, the sense is “to prevail” or “to overcome,” as in the words of the angel to Jacob: “Your name will no longer be Jacob, but Israel, because you have struggled with God, and with men and have overcome” (Gen. 32:28, NIV, KJV, NASB, “prevailed”). With the word yâkôl God rebukes Israel’s insincerity: “I cannot endure iniquity and the solemn assembly” (Isa. 1:13, NASB, NIV, “bear”). “… How long will it be ere they attain to innocency?” (Hos. 8:5, KJV, NASB, “will they be capable of”).
There is no distinction in Hebrew between “can” and “may,” since yâkôl expresses both “ability” and “permission,” or prohibition with the negative. Both God and man can act. There is no limit to God’s ability apart from His own freely determined limits of patience with continued disobedience and insincerity (Isa. 59:1-2) and will (Dan. 3:17- 18).
The Septuagint translates yâkôl by several words, dunamai being by far the most common. Dunamai means “to be able, powerful.” It is first used in the New Testament in Matt. 3:9: “… God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.”

The busy world with all its cares Cannot shelter thee, for here it is that the great enemy is most at home; he is the prince of this world, and seizes men who find their joys therein as easily as a kite lays hold upon a sparrow.

It, too, Can denote anxiety or earnest concern, depending on the context. When one's desires are inordinate with the result being a focus on temporal existence instead of eternal life, the consequence Can be harmful. For example, the negative effects of anxiety Can be seen in one's health status. Too much stress Can cause manifold health problems. Worry Cannot add a single hour to our life span, according to Matthew 6:27 , and therefore, it is a waste of time. Trusting in God when one Cannot change a situation is biblical faith

Possess - ” The verb Can connote the state of being designated as an heir. ...
This root Can also represent the status of having something as one’s permanent possession, as a possession which may be passed on to one’s legal descendants. Yârash Can mean “to take over as a permanent possession”: “And if his father have no brethren, then ye shall give his inheritance unto his kinsman that is next to him of his family, and he shall possess it …” ( Cannot hold possessions or inherit permanent possessions: “The Horim also dwelt in Seir beforetime; but the children of Esau succeeded them, when they had destroyed them from before them, and dwelt in their stead …” ( Can refer to “a place one has as a permanent possession” ( Can also mean “pit” (cf
Word - It Can refer to a spoken utterance, a saying, a command, a speech, a story—linguistic communication in general. Dabar Can also mean a thing, event, or action ( Genesis 18:14 ). The entire law represents the will of God and so Can be called a single “word” (Deuteronomy 4:2 KJV). The New Testament Can use these words to apply to Jesus' message, the message about Jesus, and Jesus Himself. ...
Jesus' message of the coming kingdom Can be called a “word” ( John 1:1-18 ; Mark 4:33 ; Luke 5:1 ) as Can His individual sayings (Matthew 26:75 ; Luke 22:61 ; John 7:36 ). Significantly, Jesus avoided citing rabbinic authorities or using the traditional language of a prophet who would claim “that the word of the Lord came to me” or declare “thus says the Lord. ” Perhaps these phrases did not significantly honor His special relationship with the Father and His own authority (Matthew 11:27 ; compare Matthew 5:21-26 ; Mark 3:28-29 ). ...
The message concerning Jesus Can also be called “a word. Even today a couple Can make or create a marriage by saying “I do. Words Can deeply injure (Proverbs 12:18 ; Proverbs 18:14 ), and revive (Proverbs 12:18 ,Proverbs 12:18,12:25 ; Proverbs 16:24 ). Words Can have a widespread influence; words from the wicked are like a fire-spreading torch (Proverbs 16:27-28 ); words from the good bring good fruit (Proverbs 12:14 ; Proverbs 10:11 )
Flock - God's people Can be described as a flock shepherded by God (Psalm 100:3 ; Jeremiah 23:3 ; Ezekiel 34:31 ) or by Christ, the “great Shepherd of the sheep” (Hebrews 13:20 ; compare John 10:11 ; 1 Peter 5:4 ). Flocks Can refer to individual congregations under the care of a pastor (1 Peter 5:2-3 )
Restitution - That where it Can be made in kind, or the injury Can be certainly valued, we are to restore the thing or the value. Where the thing Cannot be restored, and the value of it is not certain, we are to give reasonable satisfaction, according to a middle estimation

Demons - They Can go out of persons and Can enter into swine
Devils - They Can go out of persons and Can enter into swine
Mysteries - The chemist Can not change milk into flesh and blood. No, man, however wise, Can make a blade of grass. We believe these mysteries, not because we understand them nor because we Can discover them by unaided reason, but solely on the word of God Who has declared them. Every other religion proclaims only such things as man Can originate and understand
Mediator - Therefore, there needs to be a mediator who Can stand between them and God, and somehow bring them back to him. The only person who Can really do this is Jesus Christ. Through him repentant sinners Can be brought back to God and enjoy the fellowship with God that he desires for them (2 Timothy 2:5-6; 1 Peter 3:18; see RECONCILIATION; REDEMPTION). As a result he Can plead sympathetically with God on their behalf, as well as bring God’s help to them (Hebrews 2:17-18; Hebrews 4:15; Hebrews 7:25)
City - 25:31 shows that ‛ı̂yr Can be used as synonym of chatser: “And if a man sell a dwelling house in a walled city, then he may redeem it within a whole year after it is sold; … but the houses of the villages [2] which have no wall round about them shall be counted as the fields of the country. …”...
‛Iyr Can signify not only a “village consisting of permanent houses” but also one in a permanent place, even though the dwellings are tents: “And Saul came to a city of Amalek, and laid wait in the valley” ( Can represent “those who live in a given town”: “And when he came, lo, Eli sat upon a seat by the wayside watching: for his heart trembled for the ark of God. ...
‛Iyr Can also signify only “a part of a city,” such as a part that is surrounded by a wall: “Nevertheless David took the stronghold of Zion: the same is the city of David” (
Ancestors - ...
Through their wrong behaviour, people of later generations Can be a disgrace to the memory of their godly ancestors. Only through complete repentance Can they be united with their believing forefathers as the true children of God (Malachi 4:6; Luke 1:17; John 8:39-40; John 8:56). Although it is true that the sinful ways of one generation Can have lasting bad effects on later generations (Exodus 20:5; Acts 7:51-52), it is also true that the mercy of God is constantly available to those who submit to him (Exodus 20:6). Those of a former generation Cannot help those of the present, but the living Christ Can help all who call on him. To those who trust in him he gives the life that even physical death Cannot destroy, eternal life (John 6:48-51; John 6:58)

Proper Psalms - Certain great days of the Church are so importantin the truths they set forth, the Church hath thought good to orderthat all Holy Scriptures that Can possibly be used in illustrationthereof shall be read on those days
Evil - There are destructive forces in nature, ranging from earthquakes and tidal waves to Cancer. ...
Third, personal life Cannot develop except in a stable environment. The earthquake, volcano, and storm, which cause human suffering, all belong to nature's regularity. Some so-called natural evil, therefore, Can be attributed to the necessary operation of natural uniformities. Apparently God felt that, for reasons which were evident to Him but which we Can only partly understand, it was better to make human beings than robots. Not even God Can love machines in the sense that persons Can be loved. This judgment Can be seen in the Old Testament (Deuteronomy 28:20-21 ; Isaiah 3:11 ). Thus, a principle of judgment upon, and annulment of, evil Can be discerned at work in history and even in individual lives. It is also indicated in such passages as Colossians 1:24 ; Philippians 3:10 ; and 2 Corinthians 12:7 that the Christian Can bear suffering for others and assist in God's redemptive purpose. However, on the practical and experiential level we Can say with the apostle Paul that “in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us” (Romans 8:37 )
Gestures - Lifting one's head Can indicate exaltation (Psalm 27:6 ), contempt (Psalm 83:2 ), and freedom (2 Kings 25:27 ). Winking the eye may show mischief and deceit (Proverbs 6:13 ), which also Can lead to sorrow (Proverbs 10:10 ). One's eyes Can show anger (Mark 3:5 ). To smile and laugh Can mean more than just happiness and joy; it also Can show goodwill (Job 29:24 ), scorn (Psalm 22:7 ; Mark 5:40 ; Luke 8:53 ) or even rebuke (Psalm 2:4 ). The raising of one's hands Can also be a symbol of blessing (Leviticus 9:22 ; Nehemiah 8:6 ; Luke 24:50 ), or it Can be an act that gives emphasis to an oath (Deuteronomy 32:40 ; Ezekiel 20:5 ,Ezekiel 20:5,20:15 ,Ezekiel 20:15,20:23 ,Ezekiel 20:23,20:28 ). The laying of a hand or hands on someone Can mean violence (Genesis 37:22 ), or it Can mean favor and blessing as on a son (Genesis 48:14 ) or in healing (Luke 4:40 ; Acts 28:8 ). To clap one's hands Can mean either contempt (Job 27:23 ; Lamentations 2:15 ; Nahum 3:19 ) or joy and celebration (2 Kings 11:12 ; Psalm 47:1 ; Psalm 98:8 ; Isaiah 55:12 ). The waving of one's hand Can mean to beckon (Luke 5:7 ; John 13:24 ), to call for silence in order to speak (Acts 12:17 ; Acts 13:16 ; Acts 19:33 ), or to call on God for healing (2 Kings 5:11 ). The pointing of a finger Can show ill favor (Proverbs 6:13 ) or accusation (Isaiah 58:9 )
Inheritance - ” Only in context Can they be taken to mean “inheritance. ” In a broader sense, however, God Can be said to “inherit” all nations ( Psalm 82:8 ). ...
Anything given by God Can be called an “inheritance. ...
In the New Testament “inheritance” Can refer to property (Luke 12:13 ), but it most often refers to the rewards of discipleship: eternal life (Matthew 5:5 ; Matthew 19:29 ; Mark 10:29-30 and parallels; Titus 3:7 ), the kingdom (Matthew 25:34 ; James 2:5 ; negatively 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 ; 1 Corinthians 15:50 ), generally (Acts 20:32 ; Ephesians 1:14 ,Ephesians 1:14,1:18 ; Revelation 21:7 ). Through Christ Christians Can be heirs of God and “fellow heirs” with Christ (Romans 8:17 ; compare Ephesians 3:6 )
Self-Love - This, indeed, they never Can do; for though the introduction of evil into the world, and the different ranks which it makes necessary in society, put it in the power of a man to raise himself in the present state by the depression of his neighbour, or by the practice of injustice; yet, in the pursuit of the glorious prize which is set before us, there Can be no rivalship among the competitors. It must be confessed, that we ought to love him for his own excellences; yet it is difficult to form an idea how we Can love God unconnected with any interest to ourselves. What, indeed, we ought to do, and what we really do, or Can do, is very different. There is an everlasting obligation on men to love God for what he is, however incapable of doine it; but, at the same time, our love to him is our interest; nor Can we, in the present state, I think, while possessed of such bodies and such minds, love God without including a sense of his relative goodness
Glory - ) Thus it Can refer to a heavy burden (Exodus 18:18 ; Psalm 38:4 ; compare more idiomatic uses in Genesis 12:10 ; Genesis 47:4 ; Exodus 4:10 ; Exodus 7:14 ). On the other side, it Can describe extreme good fortune or mass numbers, a use with many different English translations (compare Genesis 13:2 ; Exodus 12:38 ; Numbers 20:20 ; 1 Kings 10:2 ). A nation Can have such honor or glory (Isaiah 16:14 ; Isaiah 17:3 ). ) Human praise to God Can be false, not truly recognizing His importance (Isaiah 29:13 ; compare 1 Samuel 2:30 ). Such revelation does not, however, reveal all of God, for no person Can see the entirety of the divine glory, not even Moses (Exodus 33:17-23 )
Multiply, Increase - It Can refer to the process of increasing numerically: God told the sea and air creatures to “be fruitful, and multiply” ( Can be used of being quantitatively large. Râbâh Can also be used of the end product: “I have caused thee to multiply as the bud of the field, and thou hast increased and waxen great, and thou art come to excellent ornaments: thy breasts are fashioned, and thine hair is grown …” ( Can also signify a great number of times with the sense of “repeatedly. Tarbit, which occurs 6 times, Can mean “interest, increment, usury” ( Can, May - Yâkôl (יָכוֹל, Strong's #3201), “can, may, to be able, prevail, endure. …” God promised Abraham: “And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: so that if a man Can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed also be numbered” ( Canst not stand before thine enemies, until ye take away the accursed thing from among you. 6:10: “Behold, their ear is uncircumcised, and they Cannot hearken. With the word yâkôl God rebukes Israel’s insincerity: “I Cannot endure iniquity and the solemn assembly” ( Can act

Palsy - There is also a palsy of the soul, which the Great Physician Can heal, and he alone
Communion of the Saints - Alone, the fine old beech yields to the blast, and lies prone upon the sward: in the forest, supporting each other, the trees laugh at the hurricane. If the hand be unwashed the eye Cannot refuse communion with it on that account; if the finger be diseased the hand Cannot, by binding a cord around it, prevent the life-current from flowing. Nothing but death Can break up the fellowship, you must tear away the member, or it must of necessity commune with the rest of the body. It is even thus in the body of Christ; no laws Can prevent one living member of Christ from fellowship with every other, the pulse of living fellowship sends a wave through the whole mystical frame; where there is but one life, fellowship is an inevitable consequence. Yet some talk of restricted communion, and imagine that they Can practice it
Unpardonable Sin, the - ...
It is not: murder, lying, stealing, suicide, adultery, taking the Lord's name in vain, a sin committed in ignorance, a sin that a Christian Can commit, or a sin that a person may feel he or she has committed. This Can happen to people today. Jesus was not talking about a sin of His day only; it Can happen anytime. Salvation Cannot come before the Holy Spirit convicts a person; and salvation Cannot come after the person no longer feels conviction, because rejection has hardened the heart
Absolution - " According to this, no one Can receive absolution without the privity, consent and declaration of the priest; except, therefore, the priest be willing, God himself Cannot pardon any man. But supposing the passage in question to apply to the successors of the apostles, and to ministers in general, it Can only import that their office is to preach pardon to the penitent, assuring those who believe that their sins are forgiven through the merits of Jesus Christ; and that those who remain in unbelief are in a state of condemnation. Any idea of authority given to fallible, uninspired men to absolve sinners, different from this, is unscriptural; nor Can I see much utility in the terms ministerial or declarative absolution, as adopted by some divines, since absolution is wholly the prerogative of God; and the terms above-mentioned, may, to say the least, have no good influence on the minds of the ignorant and superstitious
Hand, Right Hand - This Can be seen in the story of the exodus from Egypt. ...
The hand Can represent the whole person, symbolizing the achievement of what is promised with the mouth (1 Kings 8:15,24 ). The hand's raised position Can be used in blessing (pl. Writing on the hand Can signify allegiance or ownership (Isaiah 44:5 ; Revelation 13:16 ). Mourning Can involve the slashing of the hand (Jeremiah 48:37 ). If the lover's "hand" in Song of Song of Solomon 5:4 is a sexual metaphor, it avoids altogether the additional ritual associations of this phallic image in Ugaritic (and presumably Canaanite) religion. ...
The right hand Can be used interchangeably with the hand in poetic texts (Judges 5:26 ; Psalm 74:11 )
Mulberry Trees - "Angels tread light, and He that Can walk upon the clouds Can, when He pleases, walk on the tops of the trees

It censors and condemns books judged dangerous to faith or morals, and Can grant permission to read such books. It Can dispense priests from the fast required before celebrating Mass
Blessing - Again, we read that "the less [1] is blessed of the better," Hebrews 7:7 ; and though this refers to Melchisedec blessing Abraham, the same thing is true respecting God and His creatures: in bestowing favours God is the only one who Can bless. The Christian Can say, God hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in the heavenlies in Christ," Ephesians 1:3 ; but the same verse says, "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ," meaning "Thanks be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ

Dead Sea - ...
Nothing living Can exist in this sea.

The Cane-brakes which fringe it at some parts are the homes of about forty species of mammalia, several of them animals unknown in England; and innumerable tropical or semi-tropical plants perfume the atmosphere wherever fresh water Can reach
Affliction - In the Hebrew language as many as eleven words Can be translated “affliction. ...
Practical Concerns Affliction Can be an individual matter (Philippians 4:14 ) or a corporate condition (Exodus 3:7 ; 2 Corinthians 8:1-2 ). We Can experience affliction directly (Deuteronomy 16:3 ) or indirectly (James 1:27 ). The promises that God has given to help mankind cope with situations of affliction are: (1) God sees and knows our affliction (Genesis 29:32 ; Genesis 31:42 ; Exodus 3:7 ; 2 Kings 14:26 ; Acts 7:34 ); (2) Affliction is only temporary (2 Corinthians 4:17 ); and (3) God Can deliver from any affliction (Exodus 3:17 )
Gold - ...
Zâhâb Can refer to “gold ore,” or “gold in its raw state.

Guilt - To be guilty Can mean the same thing as to be wicked. It Can mean rebellion against God, or a willful transgression. Sin Can also mean to miss the mark. ...
A new idea presents itself in passages like Isaiah 53:1 : it is the idea that a righteous one Can suffer for the guilt of others. One Can bear the sin of many and intercede for their transgressions (Isaiah 53:12 ). The corporate aspect Can be seen in 2 Chronicles 24:18 . The individual nature of guilt Can be seen in passages like Psalm 32:1 . If a person Cannot resolve these guilt feelings before God, it may be wise to seek a counselor to help determine where the guilt feelings originate. Unresolved guilt Can have a paralyzing effect on a person. Asking for and receiving forgiveness is one of the major ways that we Can be absolved from guilt

Conversion: a Radical Change - ...
I passed by a piece of common which some lord of the manor or other had been enclosing, as those rascals always will if they Can, to rob the poor of their rights, and filch every morsel of green grass upon which we may freely plant our feet; but I noticed that the enclosers had only railed it round, but had not dug it up, nor ploughed it, nor planted it; and though they had cut down the gorse, it was coming up again; of course it would, for it was a common still, and a bit of fence or rail could not alter it; the furze would come peeping up, and ere long the enclosure would be as wild as the heath outside. But suppose this man Can be so changed, that just as freely as he was wont to curse he now delights to pray, and just as heartily as he hated religion he now finds pleasure in it, and just as earnestly as he sinned he now delights to be obedient to the Lord; ah! then, this is a wonder, a miracle which mat Cannot accomplish, a marvel which only the grace of God Can work, and which gives to God his highest glory
Wine - ...
John 2:3 (c) We may take this wine to represent that peculiar joy and peace which only CHRIST Can give to human hearts. The wedding is the sweetest of all human experiences, but even that could not be completely satisfactory unless CHRIST JESUS came to bring the peculiar blessing of Heaven, which only He Can give. The nations receive the false teachings of this evil church which makes it easy to live in every kind of sinfulness, and yet be comforted by the assurance that the church Can forgive, and has the power to send the soul to Heaven
Scepticism - (Greek: skeptomai, consider, examine carefully) ...
The doctrine that the real truth of things Cannot be known with certainty.

The waters of the deep Can be destructive or constructive, curse or blessing. At the extreme described in Genesis 7:1 , it is a reversal of creation which Can only be checked when God again sends the wind or spirit (ruah ) which began creation (Genesis 1:2 ) and closes the fountains of the deep (Genesis 8:1-3 ). Deuteronomy 8:7 describes the Promised Land as a land of brooks, fountains, and deeps, which irrigate the land so that grain and fruit Can be grown ( Ezekiel 31:4 ). As blessing and as curse, the deep reflects as power which only the creator God Can control (Psalm 95:4 )
Reconciliation - ...
The only way that reconciliation Can occur is through the removal of the cause of hostility. Because of all he has done through Christ’s death, God Can in his love accept repentant sinners back to himself (Romans 5:6-9; 2 Corinthians 5:18-19; 2 Corinthians 5:21; see PROPITIATION). ...
Once God has dealt with sin according to his standards of justice and holiness, he Can reconcile guilty sinners. Reconciliation is God’s work; it is not something sinners themselves Can accomplish
Mystery - But if it Can be proved that mysteries make a part of a religion coming from God, it Can be no part of piety to discard them, as if we were wiser than he. If so in the common works of nature, we Can hardly suppose that those things which more immediately relate to the Divine Being himself, Can be without mystery
Tongue - Speech is one of the most powerful forces human beings have available to them, for by their words they Can bring great benefit or do great damage (Proverbs 12:18; Proverbs 12:25; Proverbs 15:1; Proverbs 15:4; James 3:5; James 3:9). The person who Can control the tongue Can control the whole self (James 3:1-4; James 3:7-8; cf. It may consist only of idle chatter, because even that Can easily involve harmful gossip (Proverbs 11:9; Proverbs 11:13; Proverbs 26:18-22; Ecclesiastes 5:3; see GOSSIP). The cunning twisting of words Can be merely a form of lying (Proverbs 12:19; 2 Corinthians 4:2; Ephesians 4:25; 1 Peter 3:10; see LIE)
Lie - ...
Shâkab Can also be used of lying down on a bed, for example, when one is sick.

This verb Can mean “to lie down” in a figurative sense of to be humbled or to be robbed of power. ...
Another special nuance is “to put something on its side”: “Who Can number the clouds in wisdom? Or who Can
[7] the bottles of heaven, when the dust groweth into hardness, and the clods cleave fast together?” (Job 38:37-38). Shâkab, as 1 Kings 22:40 suggests, Can refer to the state of being dead (“so Ahab slept with his fathers”), since v

Corruptions: Seen Even in Solitude - ' ...
Alas! alas! what will it avail us whether we are in England or Ireland, Scotland or America; whether we live amongst mankind, or retire into a hermitage, if we still carry with us our own hell, our corrupt evil tempers? Without a new heart and a right spirit, no condition Can deliver a man from the thraldom of his sins. The devil Can tempt in the wilderness as well as in the crowd
Beth-Horon - Here Joshua defeated the Canaanites ( Joshua 10:10-14 ). Here Judas Maccabæus defeated the Syrian general Seron ( 1Ma 3:13-24 ) and five years afterwards Nicanor ( 1 Chronicles 7:39-40 ); more than 200 years later the Jews at the same place beat back the Roman army under Cestius Gallus.

Gospel - Such was the "good tidings"announced by the angelic choir, such is the purpose of the NewTestament Scriptures, and that Gospel religion or Gospel preachingwhich brings these sublime facts to bear on the hearts and livesof men, as living realities and guiding motives, alone Can beScriptural and truly Gospel.

Ignorant, Ignorance - Here also the word appears a limited number of times (thirteen in the RSV) but its concept is a significant and pervasive one. ...
Other passages, however, indicate that ignorance Can be culpable without any palliation. It is through such ignorance (an unwillingness to forgive) that a person Can be outwitted by the designing Satan (2 Corinthians 2:11 ). Likewise, needing the kerygma are the legalists who through ignorance believe that they Can effect their own righteousness (Romans 10:3 ). But even the revealed and received word Can be twisted by the ignorant (2 Peter 3:16 )
Procession of the Holy Ghost - Watts, however, observes, that the procession of the Holy Ghost from the Father, respects not his nature or substance, but his mission only; and that no distinct and clear ideas Can be formed of this procession; consequently it must be given up as popish, scholastic, inconceivable, and indefensible. But, it is answered, what clear idea Can be given us of the originate, self-existent, eternal being of the Father? Shall we, therefore, deny him to be without beginning or end, and to be self-existent, because we know not how he is so? If not, why must we give up the procession of the Spirit, because we know not the mode of it. ...
We Can no more explain the manner how the Spirit proceeds from the Father, than we Can explain the eternal generation and hypostatical union of the two natures of the Son
Mesha - The matter Can best be dealt with here by giving the most probable order of the events: (1) the conquest by Omri [1] about b. A better case Can be made out for identifying it with Mash or Mashu, a general term in the Assyrian inscriptions for the Syro-Arabian desert; though the passage suggests that a single place, or tribe, rather than so vast a region, is referred to. Traces of this latter tribe have been sought in place names in central Arabia, but no identification yet suggested Can be regarded as certain
Reign - That the word Can also be used of what a queen does when she “reigns” proves that it refers to the function of anyone in the office of king: “And he was with her hid in the house of the Lord six years. ...
Mâlak Can also be used of the idea “to become king”—someone was made, or made himself, a king: “And Bela died, and Jobab the son of Zerah of Bozrah reigned in his stead” ( Can be used of the assumption of a kingly reign, or of “beginning to reign”: “Saul reigned one year; and when he had reigned two years over Israel …” ( Miraculous Conception - If we admit this evidence of the fact, we Can discern the emphatical meaning of the appellation given to our Saviour when he is called "the seed of the woman," Genesis 3:15 ; we Can perceive the meaning of a phrase which St. Luke has introduced into the genealogy of Jesus, Luke 3:23 , and of which, otherwise, it is not possible to give a good account, ων , ως ενομιζετο , υιος ‘Ιωσηφ ; [1] and we Can discover a peculiar significancy in an expression of the Apostle Paul, Galatians 4:4 , "God sent forth his Son, made of a woman
Load - But by usage, in some cases, the word has a more definite signification, and expresses a certain quantity or weight, or as much as is usually carried, or as Can be well sustained. A quantity of food or drink that oppresses, or as much as Can be borne. To lay on a burden to put on or in something to be carried, or as much as Can be carried as, to load a camel or a horse to load a cart or wagon
Conscience - We feel that when pure and fully informed, it is an unerring guide to duty, and that no possible array of inducements Can justify us in disregarding it. No bodily tortures Can equal the agony it inflicts; and though it may slumber here, it will hereafter be like the worm that never dies and the fire that never Can be quenched
Concupiscence - The New Testament knows desire Can be good (Matthew 13:17 ; Luke 22:15 ; Galatians 5:15-2426 ; 1 Thessalonians 2:17 ). Such desire Can be for sex (Matthew 5:28 ), material goods (Mark 4:19 ), riches (1 Timothy 6:9 ), and drunkenness (2 Peter 2:18-204 ). Such desires Can make slaves of people (1618452265_89 ). People Cannot blame God, for He allows them freedom to choose and gives them over to what they choose (Romans 1:24 )
Atonement - They are guilty, the penalty is death, and they Cannot, by their own efforts, escape this penalty. They are cut off from God and there is no way they Can bring themselves back to God (Psalms 14:3; Isaiah 59:2; Romans 1:18; Romans 3:20; Romans 3:23; Romans 6:23; see SIN). ...
Atonement is therefore not something that people Can achieve by their own efforts, but something that God provides. )...

Zipporah - ) The Cushite wife mentioned in Numbers 12 as the object of Miriam's jealousy Can hardly have been Zipporah who was then long before married to Moses, but probably a second wife taken after Zipporah's death

Schleyer, Johann Martin - Material about the language, including lessons and literature, Can be easily found online
Birth Control - The Catholic doctrine that birth control is essentially wrong, is not a mere disciplinary measure, like the law of clerical celibacy, which Can be abrogated or modified by the Church. It is a definition of the law of God, which no power, not even the Church itself, Can abrogate or contravene
Professors (Mere): Have no Changes - Like ships at sea, true Christians have their storms; but mere professors, like pictured galleys on the Canvas, ride on an unruffled ocean. ' As no weather Can give ague to marble, as no variation of temperature Can bring fever to iron, so to some men the events of life, the temptations of prosperity, or the trials Of adversity, bring little change
Cup - Cup and Can, familiar companions the Can being the large vessel out of which the cup is filled, and thus the two being constantly associated
Gadarenes - It forms a most interesting miracle, in the account of Christ's ministry, (See Mark 5:1-30) Who Can say, but that the Lord Jesus directed his steps to this very spot, purposely for the salvation of this poor man, and him only? For we are told, that while he sat at the feet of Jesus, (after that the Lord had dispossessed the evil spirit) clothed, and in his right mind: the Gadarenes began to pray Jesus to depart out of their coasts. What higher proofs Can be needed to mark distinguishing grace! What an act of mercy had Jesus wrought, not only to the poor demoniac, but to the whole country, in delivering them from his violence and outrage, while under possession of the devil

Ruah Can also refer to feelings. ...
Ruah Can also refer to the will. ...
Given the distributed uses of ruah [1] (standing twice as often for the wind/power of God as it does for the breath/feelings/will of the person), mortals Cannot see themselves as independent of God. Both Can be defiled (2 Corinthians 7:1 ) and both Can be holy (1 Corinthians 7:34 ). Weakness of flesh Can prove stronger than the spirit's will to pray (Mark 14:38 )
Habakkuk, Theology of - He is exalted in his temple (2:20), yet he is a personal God who Can be called "my God" (1:12). He possesses such unchangeable stability that he Can be called "Rock" (1:12). He Can act today with just as much power as he ever did. ...
Habakkuk sees God coming, not to defeat the sea god as in Canaanite mythology, but on behalf of his scattered, downtrodden people. Through eyes of faith Habakkuk Can see God's awesome power unleashed in his very own day against the arrogant nations who would destroy God's chosen ones (3:13,16). ...
But while people Can be fierce, they are also frail, undependable, and prone to self-destruction (1:14-15). They Can be as helpless as fish caught in a net (1:14). They Can be as erratic as creatures creeping upon the earth. Only a direct act of God Can save us from ourselves. Habakkuk's faith is so vivid that through the eyes of his soul he Can already see the salvation of God. The prophet knows that there is no power in the world of nature or any human ruler that Can subvert God's plan for the world
Contentment - The believer Can be content no matter what the outward circumstances (Philippians 4:11-13 )

Jasper, - There Can be no doubt that the diamond would more adequately answer to the description in the book of Revelation

Baptism, Conditional - As Holy Baptism Can take place only once inany individual life, the Church has always been most careful thatit should not be repeated
Copper - is a reddish metal that Can be easily shaped by hammering and Can be polished to a shining finish. Besides the usual promised bounty of Canaan, Deuteronomy said it would include “a land whose stones are iron, and out of whose hills you Can dig copper” (Deuteronomy 8:9 RSV; Compare NAS, NIV). While not considered a precious metal, bronze was a significant prize of conquest (2 Kings 25:13-15 )
Exhortation - It is considered as a great branch of preaching, though not confined to that, as a man may exhort, though he do not preach; though a man Can hardly be said to preach if he do not exhort. It seems, however, that there are some, who, believing the inability of man to do any thing good, Cannot reconcile the idea of exhorting men to duty, being, as they suppose, a contradiction to address men who have no power to act of themselves. "The express words, " says a good divine, "of scriptural invitations, exhortations, and promises, prove more effectual to encourage those who are ready to give up their hopes, than all the consolatory topics that Can possibly be substituted in their place. They well not say that the omission was an oversight in the inspired writers; or admit the thought for a moment, that they Can improve on their plan: why then Cannot they be satisfied to "speak according to the oracles of God, without affecting a more entire consistency? Great mischief has thus been done by very different descriptions of men, who undesignedly concur in giving Satan an occasion of suggesting to the trembling enquirer that perhaps he may persevere in asking, seeking, and knocking, with the greatest earnestness and importunity, and yet finally be cast away
Adder - The charmers, by a particular pressure on the neck, Can inflate the animal so that the serpent becomes rigid, and Can be held out horizontally as a rod. Shrill sounds, as the flute, are what serpents Can best discern, for their hearing is imperfect
Atheist - The atheist pretends to know that which no man Can know. ...
"I appeal to any man of reason whether any thing Can be more unreasonable than obstinately to impute an effect to chance, which carries in the very face of it all the arguments and characters of a wise design and contrivance. Was ever any considerable work, in which there was required a great variety of parts, and a regular and orderly disposition of those parts, done by chance! Will chance fit means to ends, and that in ten thousand instances, and not fail in any one? How often might a man, after he had jumbled a set of letters in a bag, fling them out upon the ground, before they would fall into an exact poem; yea, or so much as make a good discourse in prose? And may not a little book be as easily made by chance as the great volume of the world? How long might a man be in sprinkling colours upon Canvass with a careless hand, before they would happen to make the exact picture of a man? And is a man easier made by chance than his picture? How long might twenty thousand blind men, who should be sent out from several remote parts of England, wander up and down before they would all meet upon Salisbury plain, and fall into rank and file in the exact order of an army? And, yet, this is much more easy to be imagined than how the innumerable blind parts of matter should rendezvous themselves into a world. What would the world think of a man that should advance such an opinion as this, and write a book for it? If they would do him right, they ought to look upon him as mad; but yet with a little more reason than any man Can have to say, that the world was made by chance, or that the first men grew up out of the earth as plants do now. For, Can any thing be more ridiculous, and against all reason, than to ascribe the production of men to the first fruitfulness of the earth, without, so much as one instance and experiment, in any age or history, to countenance so monstrous a supposition? The thing is, at first sight, so gross and palpable, that no discourse about it Can make it more apparent. And yet, these shameful beggars of principles give this precarious account of the original of things; assume to themselves to be the men of reason, the great wits of the world, the only cautious and wary persons that hate to be imposed upon, that must have convincing evidence for every thing, and Can admit of nothing, without a clear demonstration of it" ...
See EXISTENCE OF GOD
Glory - This word in the abstract, properly speaking belongs only to God; for there Can be glory in no other. (Romans 9:5) The glory of JEHOVAH, though, no doubt, existing personally in the essence of the GODHEAD, Can only be known by his creatures in the manifestation of it. "He dwells in that light, or glory, which no man Can approach unto. " So that all we Can know or conceive of his glory, must result from such manifestations as he hath been pleased to make of himself in his works. " (Jeremiah 9:23-24)...
I Cannot forbear requesting the reader's attention, under this article, to a sweet and interesting feature of Christ, as the Glory-man Christ Jesus. " (See Proverbs 8:22-31)...
I would only beg to add one thought more upon this subject, and to observe to the true believer in Jesus the blessedness the heart of that man feels, who, to such views of the divine glory, Can set to his seal the truth of it in his own personal experience, when with the apostle he Can say, "God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ
Hand - Sometimes the word is used in conjunction with an object that Can be grasped by the “hand”: “And if he smite him with throwing a stone [1] …” ( Can mean “side,” where the hand is located: “And Absalom rose up early, and stood beside the way of the gate …” ( Can represent “length and breadth. …”...
Second, since the hand Can receive only a part or fraction of something, the word Can signify a “part” or “fraction”: “And he took and sent
[7] unto them from before him: but Benjamin’s [8] was five times so much as any of theirs” ( Can signify a “monument” or “stele”: “… Saul came to Carmel, and, behold, he set him up a place [9], and is gone about, and passed on, and gone down to Gilgal” ( Conscience - With regard to the intimations received through the organs of sense, there Can be no difference of opinion, and there Can be no room for argument. They give us at once correct information, which reasoning Can neither invalidate nor confirm. But it is surely impossible to say as much for the power of conscience, which sometimes gives the most opposite intimations with regard to the simplest moral facts, and which requires to be corrected by an accurate attention to the established order of nature, or to the known will of God, before we Can rely with confidence on its decisions. It does not appear, that conscience Can with propriety be considered as a principle distinct from that which enables us to pronounce on the general merit or demerit of moral actions. Conscience, then, Cannot be considered as any thing else than the general principle of moral approbation or disapprobation applied to our own feelings or conduct, acting with increased energy from the knowledge which we have of our motives and actions, and from the deep interest which we take in whatever concerns ourselves; nor Can we think that they have deserved well of morals or philosophy, who have attempted to deduce our notions of right and wrong from any one principle
Johann Von Hontheim - Influenced by Gallican principles, Hontheim advocates an ecclesiastical organization subversive of the Church's constitution. While infallibility is denied, the primacy is conceded but Can be attached to another see than that of Rome. He is subordinate to the general council which alone, with subsequent ratification by the entire episcopate, Can bind in faith and discipline. Joseph II of Austria sought the realization of a national church, followed by Leopold I of Tuscany
Febronianism - Influenced by Gallican principles, Hontheim advocates an ecclesiastical organization subversive of the Church's constitution. While infallibility is denied, the primacy is conceded but Can be attached to another see than that of Rome. He is subordinate to the general council which alone, with subsequent ratification by the entire episcopate, Can bind in faith and discipline. Joseph II of Austria sought the realization of a national church, followed by Leopold I of Tuscany
Talent - Time, health, vigour of body, and the power of exertion and enduring fatigue...
the natural and acquired abilities of the mind, skill in any lawful art or science, and the capacity for close mental application...
the gift of speech, and that of speaking with fluency and propriety, and in a convincing, attractive, or persuasive manner...
wealth, influence, or authority...
a man's situation in the church, the community, or relative life...
and the various occurences which make way for him to attempt any thing of a beneficial tendency; these, and many others that Can scarcely be enumerated, are talents which the consistent Christian will improve to the glory of God, and the benefit of mankind. Nay, this improvement procures an increase of talents, and gives a man an accession of influence, and an accumulating power of doing good; because it tends to establish his reputation for prudence, piety, integrity, sincerity, and disinterested benevolence: it gradually forms him to an habitual readiness to engage in the beneficent designs, and to conduct them in a gentle, unobstrusive and unassuming manner: it disposes others to regard him with increasing confidence and affection, and to approach him with satisfaction; and it procures for him the countenance of many persons, whose assistance he Can employ in accomplishing his own salutary purposes
Divided Kingdom - ...
The biblical account of the division of the united kingdom established by David Can be found in 1 Kings 11:9-12:33 and 2 Chronicles 10:1-11:4 . The events that led to the division Can be traced to the reign of Solomon
Dispense - To permit not to take effect to neglect or pass by to suspend the operation or application of something required, established or customary as, to dispense with the law, in favor of a friend I Cannot dispense with the conditions of the covenant. I Can dispense with your services. I Can dispense with my cloke. ...
Canst thou dispense with heaven for such an oath? Not legitimate
Hontheim, Johann Nikolaus Von - Influenced by Gallican principles, Hontheim advocates an ecclesiastical organization subversive of the Church's constitution. While infallibility is denied, the primacy is conceded but Can be attached to another see than that of Rome. He is subordinate to the general council which alone, with subsequent ratification by the entire episcopate, Can bind in faith and discipline. Joseph II of Austria sought the realization of a national church, followed by Leopold I of Tuscany
Foundation - But in Scripture language it means Christ, the foundation God hath laid in Zion, and on which JEHOVAH hath built his church; and against which the gates of hell Can never prevail. Well might the apostle in the contemplation of it say, "Other foundation Can no man lay than that is laid, Jesus Christ
Apostasy - ...
Though the general apostasy there spoken of Cannot come till after the saints are taken to heaven, yet there may be, as there has been, individual falling away. Now a falling away necessarily implies a position which Can be fallen from, a profession has been made which has been deliberately given up. It is not a Christian falling into some sin, from which grace Can recover him; but a definite relinquishing of Christianity
Saul - His behaviour toward David shows him to have been destitute of every generous and noble sentiment that Can dignify human nature; and it is not an easy task to speak with any moderation of the atrocity and baseness which uniformly mark it. His character is that of a wicked man, "waxing worse and worse;" but while we are shocked at its deformity, it should be our study to profit by it, which we Can only do by using it as a beacon to warn us, "lest we also be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin
Other - To the knowledge of the Latin and Greek, join as much other learning as you Can. From such a man, we Can expect no other
Architecture - From the time of the occupation of Canaan they became dwellers in towns and in houses of stone. Of the original splendor of these great works no doubt Can be entertained; but of their style and appearance we Can only conjecture that they were formed on Greek and Roman models
World - These things Can become wrong when people have wrong attitudes towards them (cf. ...
If Christians Cannot see the relation that these things have to the life of faith in God, their attitude to them Can readily become worldly. Ambition Can very easily become selfish ambition, wisdom become worldly wisdom, and thoughts for the future become faithless anxiety (Matthew 6:33-34; 1 Corinthians 1:20; 1 Corinthians 2:7-8; 1 Corinthians 2:12; 1 Corinthians 3:19; James 3:13-17; 1618452265_8). ...
Christians Cannot overcome the temptations of the world by using the methods of the world. They Can overcome them only by trusting in the power of Christ, who has conquered Satan, the prince of the world (John 12:31; John 14:30; John 16:11; John 16:33; 1 John 5:4-5; see TEMPTATION). Only in this way Can they properly carry out their function of delivering people from the corruption of sin (Matthew 5:13-16; John 17:18; James 1:27)
Justice - Sinners Can have hope only because of the perfect harmony of justice and mercy within the divine nature (Exodus 34:6-7; Zephaniah 3:5; cf. There is no way that sinners Can bring themselves into a right relationship with a just and holy God, but God is merciful to them. Through Jesus Christ, God has provided a way of salvation by which he Can bring repentant sinners into a right relationship with himself, yet be just in doing so (Romans 3:26; see JUSTIFICATION). ...
The ancient Hebrew law-code demonstrates how the universal and timeless principles of justice Can be applied to the cultural and social habits of a particular people and era. Laws must not be designed to suit the people of power and influence, but must protect the rights of those who Can be easily exploited, such as foreigners, widows, orphans, debtors, labourers and the poor in general (Exodus 21:1-11; Exodus 22:21-27; Exodus 23:6-12; Deuteronomy 14:28-29; Deuteronomy 15:11). ...
Political conditions vary from one country to another, and these will largely determine the extent to which God’s people Can actively try to persuade the government to improve social justice. No government, however, Can relieve them of their personal responsibility to help the disadvantaged in society (Leviticus 25:35-40; Isaiah 58:6-7; Matthew 5:9; Matthew 25:34-36; Luke 10:30-36)
Ordinary - As ordinary jurisdiction is by law attached to an office, he who has Canonical possession of an office, Can exercise the jurisdiction pertaining to the office. ,diocesan bishops and their vicars general, prelates nullius and their vicars, vicars Apostolic and prefects; also vicars capitular and administrators during the vacancy of a see
Helpmeet - The adjective “meet” (translated suitable, comparable, or corresponding) stresses that woman, unlike the animals (Genesis 2:20 ), Can be truly one with man (Genesis 2:24 ), that is, enjoy full fellowship and partnership in humanity's God-given task (Genesis 2:18 )

Christ: Our Only Rest - My heart Can have no rest, unless it leans on Jesus Christ wholly, and then it feels his peace
Biddelians - He taught that Jesus Christ, to the intent that he might be our brother, and have a fellow-feeling of our infirmities, and so become the more ready to help us, hath no other than a human nature; and therefore in this very nature is not only a person, since none but a human person Can be our brother, but also our Lord and God
Rock - Just as a high rocky cliff Can be a refuge or fortress, so God is a refuge and fortress to his believing people (Genesis 49:24; Psalms 18:2; Psalms 28:1; Psalms 62:2; Psalms 78:35; Isaiah 32:1-2)
Must - A bill in a legislative body must have three readings before it Can pass to be enacted
Wills - The case of houses in walled towns was different, and there Can be no doubt that they must, in fact, have frequently been bequeathed by will, (Leviticus 25:30 ) Two instances are recorded in the Old Testament under the law of the testamentary disposition, (1) effected in the case of Ahithophel, (2 Samuel 17:23 ) (2) recommended in the case of Hezekiah
Nathanael - ...
Nathanael was from Cana of Galilee (John 21:2 ) and apparently became one of the inner core of disciples who followed Jesus. It was then that Nathanael made the infamous remark, “Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth?” See Disciples
Bethesda - There is little that Can be said in favour of any other of the numerous identifications that have been proposed for this pool
Millo - Whether this be the same place, or whether (perhaps more likely) it was somewhere near Jerusalem, and (if so) where or what it may have been, are questions to which no answer Can be given

Argob - NIV translation Can be interpreted to mean Pekah also killed Argob
Jehoshaphat, Valley of - ...
Others however associate the above with the valley lying between Jerusalem and the Mount of Olives, now called the Valley of Jehoshaphat; but no trace of this name as attached to that particular valley Can be found earlier than the fourth century
Gap - A third Can fill the gap with laughing
Time - There Can be no procrastination, no putting off until later, no indecision, every matter must be immediately attended to, without delay
Shoe - It must be linked with the death of CHRIST, for shoes, whether of wood or leather, Can only be such after the death of that from which they are made
Seed - ...

Ift - It Can be perfected only by deed, or in case of personal property, by an actual delivery of possession
Demetrius - He may have been formerly the silversmith of Ephesus; but this Can be neither proved nor disproved
Remedy - What remedy Can be provided for extravagance in dress? The man who shall invent an effectual remedy for intemperance, will deserve every thing from his fellow men
Redemptions, Penitential - A system of atonement in vogue in the Church from about the end of the 8th to the end of the 11th century, whereby easier and shorter exercises were substituted for works of penance imposed by the early Canons. The commutations and compensations of penitential redemptions Can be regarded as true indulgences only when granted by the Church in lieu of other penances prescribed by the Canons
Tame - The tongue Can no man tame
Materialism - Much has been written of late years against this doctrine, and the different modifications which it has assumed: but in substance nothing new has been said on either side; and the able and condensed argument of Wollaston in his "Religion of Nature Delineated," if well considered, will furnish every one with a most clear and satisfactory refutation of this antiscriptural and irrational error:—The soul Cannot be mere matter: for if it is, then either all matter must think; or the difference must arise from the different modification, magnitude, figure, or motion of some parcels of matter in respect of others; or a faculty of thinking must be superadded to some systems of it, which is not superadded to others. But in the first place, that position, which makes all matter to be cogitative, is contrary to all the apprehensions and knowledge we have of the nature of it; nor Can it be true, unless our senses and faculties be contrived only to deceive us. And since, for this reason, it Cannot be necessary for matter to think, (because it may be matter without this property,) it Cannot think as matter only; if it did, we should not only continue to think always, till the matter of which we consist is annihilated, and so the asserter of this doctrine would stumble upon immortality unawares; but we must also have thought always in time past, ever since that matter was in being; nor could there be any the least intermission of actual thinking; which does not appear to be our case. ...
In the next place, the faculties of thinking, &c, Cannot arise from the size, figure, texture, or motion of it; because bodies by the alteration of these only become greater or less, round or square, &c, rare or dense, translated from one place to another with this or that new direction or velocity, or the like; all which ideas are quite different from that of thinking; there Can be no relation between them. They who place the essence of the soul in a certain motion given to some matter, (if any such men there really be,) should consider, among many other things, that to move the body spontaneously, is one of the faculties of the soul; and that this, which is the same with the power of beginning motion, Cannot come from motion already begun, and impressed ab extra. Can such an active being as the soul is, the subject of so many powers, be itself nothing but an accident? When I begin to move myself, I do it for some reason, and with respect to some end, the means to effect which I have, if there be occasion for it, concerted within myself; and this does not at all look like motion merely material, or in which matter is only concerned, which is all mechanical. Who Can imagine matter to be moved by arguments, or ever placed syllogisms and demonstrations among levers and pullies? We not only move ourselves upon reasons which we find in ourselves, but upon reasons imparted by words or writings from others, or perhaps merely at their desire or bare suggestion: in which case, again, nobody surely Can imagine that the words spoken or written, the sound in the air, or the strokes on the paper, Can, by any natural or mechanical efficience, cause the reader or hearer to move in any determinate manner, or at all. The reason, request, or friendly admonition, which is the true motive, Can make no impression upon matter. Do not we see in conversation, how a pleasant thing said makes people break out into laughter, a rude thing into passion, and so on? These affections Cannot be the physical effects of the words spoken; because then they would have the same effect, whether they were understood or not. ...
They who Can fancy that matter may come to live, think, and act spontaneously, by being reduced to a certain magnitude, or having its parts placed after a certain manner, or being invested with such a figure, or excited by such a particular motion; they, I say, would do well to discover to us that degree of fineness, that alteration in the situation of its parts, &c, at which matter may begin to find itself alive and cogitative; and which is the critical minute, that introduces these important properties. If they Cannot do this, nor have their eye upon any particular crisis, it is a sign that they have no good reason for what they say. For if they have no reason to charge this change upon any particular degree or difference, one more than another, they have no reason to charge it upon any degree or difference at all: and then they have no reason by which they Can prove that such a change is made at all. Beside all which, since magnitude, figure, and motion are but accidents of matter, not matter, and only the substance is truly matter; and since the substance of any one part of matter does not differ from that of another, if any matter Can be by nature cogitative, all must be so: but this we have seen Cannot be. So then, in conclusion, if there is any such thing as matter that thinks, &c, this must be a particular privilege granted to it; that is, a faculty of thinking must be superadded to certain parts or parcels of it; which, by the way, must infer the existence of some being able to confer this faculty; who, when the ineptness of matter has been well considered, Cannot appear to be less than omnipotent, or God. For since it is not the essence of matter, it Cannot be made to be so without making matter another kind of substance from what it is. Nor Can if be made to arise from any of the modifications or accidents of matter; and in respect of what else Can any matter be made to differ from other matter. And if the seat of cogitation be in more parts than one, whether they lie close together, or are loose, or in a state of fluidity, it is the same thing, how Can it be avoided, but that either there must be so many several minds, or thinking substances, as there are parts, and then the consequence which has been mentioned would return upon us again; or else that there must be something else superadded for them to centre in, to unite their acts, and make their thoughts to be one? And then what Can this be but some other substance, which is purely one?...
Matter by itself Can never entertain abstracted and general ideas, such as many in our minds are. For instance: the image of a cube in my mind, or my idea of a cube, must be always under some particular prospect, and conform to the rules of perspective; nor could I otherwise represent it to myself; whereas now I Can form an idea of it as it is in itself, and almost view all its hedrae at once, as it were encompassing it with my mind. I Can within myself correct the external appearances and impressions of objects, and advance, upon the reports and hints received by my senses, to form ideas of things that are not extant in matter. By seeing a material circle I may learn to form the idea of a circle, or figure generated by the revolution of a ray about its centre; but then, recollecting what I know of matter upon other occasions, I Can conclude there is no exact material circle. And if we know any thing of ourselves, we know that we are conscious of our own existence and acts, that is, that we live; that we have a degree of freedom; that we Can move ourselves spontaneously; and, in short, that we Can, in many instances, take off the effect of gravitation, and impress new motions upon our spirits, or give them new directions, only by a thought. And whether that Can be a faculty of thinking, and so these other faculties be only faculties of a faculty, or whether they must not all be rather the faculties of some substance, which, being by their own concession, superadded to matter, must be different from it, we leave the unprejudiced to determine. So our vessels without a proper organization and conformity of parts would not be capable of being acted as they are; but still it is not the shape, or modification, or any other accident, that Can govern them. The capacity of being governed or used Can never be the governor, applying and using that capacity. ...
For the foregoing reasons it is plain, that matter Cannot think, Cannot be made to think. But if a faculty of thinking Can be superadded to a system of matter, without uniting an immaterial substance to it; yet a human body is not such a system, being plainly void of thought, and organized in such a manner as to transmit the impressions of sensible objects up to the brain, where the percipient, and that which reflects upon them, certainly resides; and therefore that which there apprehends, thinks, and wills, must be that system of matter to which a faculty of thinking is superadded. Though I understand not perfectly the manner how a cogitative and spiritual substance Can be thus closely united to such a material vehicle, yet I Can understand this union as well as how it Can be united to the body in general, perhaps as how the particles of the body itself cohere together, and much better than how a thinking faculty Can be superadded to matter; and beside, several phenomena may more easily be solved by this hypothesis; which, in short, is this, that the human soul is a cogitative substance united to a material vehicle; that these act in conjunction, that which affects the one affecting the other; that the soul is detained in the body till the habitation is spoiled, and their mutual tendency interrupted, by some hurt or disease, or by the decays and ruins of old age, or the like. A better notion of the separate and independent existence of the soul Cannot be formed, than that which we derive from our observations on the phenomena of dreaming. From this circumstance alone we discover the amazing influence of thought upon the external organ; of that thought which we Can neither hear, nor see, nor touch, which yet produces an affection of the brain fully equal to a blow, a pressure, or any other sensible injury. If then an absorbent system exists in the brain, and the organ thereby undergoes, in the course of a certain time, a total change, it is impossible that this flux and variable substance Can be endowed with consciousness or thought
Dead Sea - Inland lake at the end of the Jordan Valley on the southeastern border of Canaan with no outlets for water it receives; known in the Bible as Salt Sea, Sea of the Plain, and Eastern Sea. It also causes a condition where no form of marine life Can live even though some fish have reportedly been found in adjacent less salty pools. The surrounding land area Can support vegetation and life, however
Behemoth - " "Behold (though) a river be overwhelming, he is not in hasty panic (for he Can live in water as well as land); he is secure, though a Jordan swell up to his mouth. " Job Cannot have been a Hebrew, or he would not adduce Jordan, where there were no river horses. openly) will any take him, or pierce his nose with cords?" Nay, he Can only be taken by guile
Wealth - “Wealth” Can be good and a sign of blessing: “Wealth and riches shall be in his [2] house: and his righteousness endureth for ever” ( Can also represent any kind of concrete “wealth”: “… If a man would give all the substance of his house for love, it would utterly be contemned” (Song of
Eternity of the World - We Can trace the invention of the most useful arts and sciences; which had probably been carried farther, and invented sooner, had the world been eternal. We have a most ancient and credible history of the beginning of the world: I mean the history of Moses, with which no book in the world, in point of antiquity, Can contend
Habits: Destructive Power of - Divine grace Can save the wretch from his unhappy condition, but if he be destitute of that, his remorseful agonies will but make him more hopelessly the slave of his passions. 'Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots?' ...
...
Godhead - God, who Can be known by mankind only as He chooses to reveal Himself, discloses Himself and thus His nature in the context of His relationships with humanity. While the scope of His nature is beyond human comprehension, the essence has been revealed and Can be perceived and understood. God is spirit and Cannot be represented in material fashion (Exodus 20:4 )
Person - and that no single term, at least, Can be found more suitable, it Can hardly be condemned as unscriptural and improper
Logia - ” Some of them Can be found in the Gospels, while others are known from the Church Fathers. The same concern Can be seen today in our red-letter edition Bibles
Hope - The grounds of our hope are: the omnipotence of God, or the fact that He Can give us eternal life and the means to attain it; His goodness, or the fact that He wills to give us eternal life and the means to attain it; and His fidelity to His promises, or the fact that He has pledged Himself to give us eternal life and the means thereto. Hence, we alone Can make hope void by our wilful refusal to work with the proffered grace of God
Fill - ) To make full; to supply with as much as Can be held or contained; to put or pour into, till no more Can be received; to occupy the whole capacity of. ) To supply with an incumbent; as, to fill an office or a vacancy
Azazel - Etymology, origin, and significance are still matters of conjecture. Christianity itself Can supply many analogies to such a proceeding. The belief that sin, disease, and the like Can be removed by being transferred to living creatures, beasts or birds, is not confined to the Semitic races, and has its analogy in Hebrew ritual, in the ceremony of the cleansing of the leper ( Leviticus 14:53 )
Saviour - ) Isaiah, Joshua or Jeshua, Jesus, Hoshea, Hosea, are various forms of the is associated with the idea, and the term Redeemer (goel ) implies how God Can be just and at the same time a saviour of mall (Isaiah 43:3; Isaiah 43:11; Isaiah 45:15; Isaiah 45:21-24; Isaiah 45:25; Isaiah 41:14; Isaiah 49:26; Isaiah 9:16-17; Zechariah 9:9; Hosea 1:7). ...
Man Cannot save himself temporally or spiritually; Jehovah alone Can save (Job 40:14; Psalms 33:16; Psalms 44:3; Psalms 44:7; Hosea 13:4; Hosea 13:10)
Could - The past tense of Can, according to our customary arrangement in grammar but in reality a distinct word, Can having no past tense
Infirmity - Nothing, it is said, Can be excused under that name which at the time of its commission is known to be a sin. Nothing Can be called a sin of infirmity which is contrary to the express letter of any of the commandments
Ecclesiastical Property - Individual dioceses, incorporated as independent entities, and the singular churches of the diocese, Can possess and administer property. If Canonically established as moral persons, chapters, religious orders, religious congregations and seminaries, Can also exercise this right
Adam - " (Genesis 1:26) And if Christ was, and is, as the apostle was commissioned to tell the church, "the image of the invisible God, the first born of every creature," nothing Can be plainer than that the first Adam, so called, because indeed he was the first man openly, was created in the image or likeness of Him, who alone Can be said to be the image of the invisible God, and in his human nature, "the first born of every creature
Ham - Ham is called Canaan in the prediction, and declared to be a servant of servants. When Joshua conquered Canaan this was literally accomplished. For none but the Lord Can persuade, and none but him, by his Holy Spirit, Can render all persuasions successful
Gier Eagle - As the root of this word signifies tenderness and affection, it is supposed to refer to some bird remarkable for its attachment to its young; hence some have thought that the pelican is to be understood; and Bochart endeavours to prove that the golden vulture is meant; but there Can be no doubt that it is the perenopterus of the ancients, the ach-bobba of the Arabians, particularly described by Bruce under the name of rachamah. "...
Hasselquist thus describes the Egyptian vulture: "The appearance of the bird is as horrid as Can well be imagined. Notwithstanding this, the inhabitants of Egypt Cannot be enough thankful to Providence for this bird
Leopard - There Can be no doubt that the pard or leopard is the animal mentioned. Jeremiah 5:6 , mentions the artful ambuscades of this animal; and in Jeremiah 13:23 , alludes to his spots: "Can a Cushite change his skin; or a leopard his spots? Then may ye prevail with them to do good who are habituated to do evil;" and Habakkuk 1:8 , refers to its alertness
Boasting - People Cannot earn salvation as a reward for any good deeds they might do. They Can only receive it as a gift that God gives freely to those who trust in his grace. They therefore have nothing of themselves that they Can boast about (Romans 3:27-28; Romans 4:1-5; Romans 9:30-32; Ephesians 2:8-9)
Unclean Meats - It is noteworthy that the practical effect of the rule laid down is to exclude all the carnivora among quadrupeds, and, so far as we Can interpret the nomenclature the raptores among birds. As Orientals have minds sensitive to teaching by types, there Can be little doubt that such cere menial distinctions not only tended to keep Jew and Gentile apart (and so prevented the Jews from becoming contaminated with the idolatry of the Gentiles), but were a perpetual reminder to the former that he and the latter were not on one level before God. As regards the animals allowed for food, comparing them with those forbidden, there Can be no doubt on which side the balance of wholesomeness lies
Perfect - God is free from incompleteness; He Can, therefore, demand from believers, and enable them to receive, completeness (Matthew 5:48 ). In the New Testament, God's relationship with His people is itself fulfilled, as the old covenant is replaced, and through Christ believers Can be perfected for ever (Hebrews 10:14 ). It is a goal to be sought (2 Corinthians 7:1 ; Hebrews 6:1 ) which, like the complete vision of God, Cannot be found this side of heaven (Ephesians 4:13 ; James 3:2 ). So we and all the saints of God Can be saved, and through the Spirit be given access to God and the daily help we need (Hebrews 7:25 ; 1618452265_89 )
Hardness of the Heart - Hebrew Can describe thinking as, “Esau said in his heart” (Genesis 27:41 ). ...
Best of all, these volitional powers Can be used to gain contact with God (Psalm 27:8 ). ...
The Bible makes it clear that humans Can resist God who respects the free human will. ...
God's people Can have hardened hearts and begin to complain when God's ethical standards seem too high
Revelation of God - By God alone Can God be known. The question remains, “How Can a person know God. Revelation of God is God's manifestation of Himself to humankind in such a way that men and women Can know and fellowship with Him. A grimace, a smile, or a frown Can often be telling. ...
What sort of things might God tell us in this manner? Paul explained “What Can be known about God is plain to them, for God Himself made it plain. We Can rephrase these observations to say that all that Can be known about God in a natural sense has been revealed in nature. ...
(5) No one, no matter how seemingly insignificant or weak-minded Can be excused for missing God's revelation. This view of general revelation Can only be accepted through special revelation. The Old Testament promise of salvation as a divine gift to people who Cannot save themselves has been fulfilled in the gift of His Son. ...
We Can thus affirm that special revelation has three stages: (1) redemption in history, ultimately centering in the work of the Lord Jesus Christ; (2) the Bible, written revelation interpreting what He has done for the redemption of men and women; (3) the work of the Holy Spirit in the lives of individuals and the corporate life of the church, applying God's revelation to the minds and hearts of His people. God, does, however, reveal himself to persons to the degree they Can receive it. ...
In sum we Can say that God has initiated the revelation of Himself to men and women. In the written word we Can identify God, know and understand something about Him, His will, and His work, and point others to Him
Swallow - sis (Isaiah 38:14 ; Jeremiah 8:7 ), the Arabic for the swift, which "is a regular migrant, returning in myriads every spring, and so suddenly that while one day not a swift Can be seen in the country, on the next they have overspread the whole land, and fill the air with their shrill cry
Nathanael - A native of Cana of Galilee, John 21:2. He was led by Philip to Jesus, He went doubting, with the words on bis lips, "Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth?" Jesus, however, at once convinces him that he is the Messiah by the exhibition of his knowledge, declaring that he had seen Nathanael under the fig tree before ever Philip had called him
Jonas - Consequently we Can account for much in Jonas's career: that he could foretell the victories of Jeroboam; that he could speak of the grandeur of Ninive as past; that he could preach to a nation once proud, now crushed
Indeed - ...
The carnal mind is enmity against God for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed Can be
Duty - ,an act imposed or prohibited under a Divine sanction, there Can be no real conflict
Salim - The difficulties of other suggested identifications Can be got over only by doing violence to the text (Cheyne, EBi Quail - When the fatigued birds stop to rest, they Can be caught easily. ...
The quails mentioned in the OT differ from the North American bobwhite quails
Either - One of its uses is to distinguish things which exclude each other, or one of which Can take the place of another
Charm - Doddridge, "which are commonly called charms, and seem to have no efficacy at all for producing the effects proposed by them, are to be avoided; seeing if there be indeed any real efficacy in them, it is generally probable they owe it to some bad cause; for one Can hardly imagine that God should permit good angels in any extraordinary manner to interpose, or should immediately exert his own miraculous power on trifling occasions, and upon the performance of such idle tricks as are generally made the condition of receiving such benefits
Rebekah - "She Can hardly be regarded as an amiable woman
Talent - This means that each hailstone was about as much as a man of average strength Can lift
Meadow - " So Job 8:11 "rush," the paper reed or papyrus of the Nile; "can the achu grow without water?" The fat kine fed on the reed grass which in the plenteous years grew to the very margin of the water, but the lean stood on the dry "brink" (Genesis 41:2-3)
Rose - , "autumn crocus"), is supposed by some to mean the oleander, by others the sweet-scented narcissus (a native of Palestine), the tulip, or the daisy; but nothing definite Can be affirmed regarding it
Hearing: Useless Alone - What a mistake to imagine that, by hearing first one preacher and then another, we Can derive benefit to our souls! More is wanted than such hearing
Porch - The terms translated “porch” in Matthew 26:71 and Mark 14:68 Can refer to a gateway or forecourt
Interest: in Holy Work to be Maintained - The same Indian who would complain, when in botanising he was loaded with a box full of plants, would row his Canoe fourteen or fifteen hours together against the current without a murmur, because he wished to return to his family. Love much, and you Can do much
Ring - That it was needed we Can see from the fact that in James 2:2 the Christian congregations are warned against paying undue respect to the man who comes into their assembly ‘with a gold ring’ (lit
Compromise - , of, by some act which Can not be recalled; to expose to suspicion
Apostrophe - ) The mark [1] used to denote that a word is contracted (as in ne'er for never, Can't for Can not), and as a sign of the possessive, singular and plural; as, a boy's hat, boys' hats
Malachi - The last of the prophets of the Old Testament, and called "the seal" because his prophecies form the closing book of the Canon of the Old Testament. Of his personal life nothing is known but what Can be gleaned from his book
Preacher: Must Feed the People (2) - Mark: believe me, it is not the music of the bell which attracts them, they Can hear that every hour. Try it in earnest and you Cannot fail; you will soon be saying, 'Who are these that fly as a cloud, and as doves to their windows?' ...
...
Twitch - ) A stick with a hole in one end through which passes a loop, which Can be drawn tightly over the upper lip or an ear of a horse

Mount, Mountain - In like manner there are parts that Can be called hill-country throughout all the land, as in Joshua 13:6 ; Luke 1:39,65
Delay - ...
There are certain bounds to the quickness and slowness of the succession of ideas, beyond which they Can neither delay nor hasten
Amyraldism - that God desires the happiness of all men, and none are excluded by a divine decree; that none Can obtain salvation without faith in Christ; that God refuses to none the power of believing, though he does not grant to all his assistance that they may improve this power to saving purposes; and that they may perish through their own fault
Japheth - " (Genesis 9:27) Yes! it is none but God that Can enlarge or persuade
Conversion - " (John 16:7-15) And to remark the wonderful operations of his grace under those several branches of his almighty power, by which he gives the fullest discoveries of our worthlessness, and the glorious manifestations of Jesus's grace, and fulness, and suitability, these are among the highest instructions the souls of men Can attain in the present life
Habitation - In reference to the sweet promises of God, as indwelling in his people, and they living by faith upon the gracious truth, nothing Can be more delightful
Abijah - Sweet appellation, when a child of God Can say, JEHOVAH is my Father! For this is what the Lord himself provided for his people
Foolishness - It Can mean “foolishness” in the sense of violating God’s law, or “sin” ( Linen - Various Hebrew and Greek words are translated 'linen,' and there Can be no doubt that linen made of flax was known in ancient Egypt and to the Israelites; but cloths generally are called linen' whether made of cotton or flax, some being distinguished as 'fine linen,' such as was worn by the priests, kings, etc
Defile - ) Any narrow passage or gorge in which troops Can march only in a file, or with a narrow front; a long, narrow pass between hills, rocks, etc

Spider - Good, was "doubtless a proverbial allusion; and so exquisite, that it is impossible to conceive any figure that Can more fully describe the utter vanity of the hopes and prosperity of the wicked
Ophel - There Can be little doubt that the name belongs to the lower ridge into which Mount Moriah sinks, south of the area of the mosque
Plumbline, Plummet - plumbum , ‘iead,’ and denotes the combined cord and weight, by suspending which against a wali it Can be seen whether or not the latter is perpendicular
be'Hemoth - There Can be little or no doubt that by this word, ( Job 40:15-24 ) the hippopotamus is intended since all the details descriptive of the behemoth accord entirely with the ascertained habits of that animal
James (st.) the Great - He has also beensurnamed the Great or the Greater by the Church, but neither ofthese designations Can be satisfactorily accounted for
Anointing the Sick - A Scottish Bishop calls it "thelost pleiad of the Anglican firmament," and says, "one must at onceconfess and deplore that a distinctly Scriptural practice has ceasedto be commanded in the Church of England, for no one Can doubt thata sacramental use of anointing the sick has been from the beginning
Jonah, Theology of - Yahweh Can make it rage or be still (1:4,13, 15). He Can send the wind and cause a storm (1:4). He Can remove the clouds and make the sun bear down with all its force (4:8). He Can use the fierce desert wind to carry out his plan (4:8). ...
He Can appoint huge denizens of the deep (2:1) or commission a tiny worm (4:7) to do his will. If he wishes, he Can make a special plant come up from the earth to fulfill his purpose (4:6). He Can also control people—even those who have not previously known him. One Cannot even go out on the sea to the farthest reaches of the earth where the Word of God has never been spoken (1:4; cf. Jonah Cannot even hide in the lowest deck of the ship (1:5). He Cannot be resisted even by the most stubborn individuals. His will Cannot be countered by professional expertise or by the most intense will power (1:5,13). He Cannot be manipulated into action by incantation or ritual. But in Jonah one sees these "judges" doing everything they possibly Can to avoid carrying out the death penalty. God is sovereign and Can have mercy on whomsoever he chooses (Exodus 33:19 ; Romans 9:15 ). Jonah and the Ninevites appear as paradigms illustrating the least likely Candidates for salvation
Friend, Friendship - Sometimes a friend Can fail to dissuade one from an evil action, as Judah's friend Hirah the Adullamite does when he helps Judah make arrangements with a supposed prostitute (Genesis 38:12-23 ). A friend Can lead one into sin, as when Jonadab son of Shimeah persuades his cousin Amnon to rape his half sister Tamar (2 Samuel 13:1-6 ). A friend Can even lead one to worship other gods (Deuteronomy 13:6-11 ). Friendship Can break down through gossip (Proverbs 16:28 ) or holding grudges (Proverbs 17:9 ). ...
As one Can be a friend to another person, so one Can be a friend of God or of God's Son. By contrast, one Can be a friend of the world, which excludes the possibility of friendship with God (James 4:4 ; 1 John 2:15 ). ...
If one Can be a friend of God or of God's Son, this friendship Can extend as well to others who are also friends of God
Head - It Can also denote the release of someone from prison: “… Evilmerodach king of Babylon in the year that he began to reign did lift up the head of Jehoiachin king of Judah out of prison” (2 Kings 25:27). ...
With the verb rum (“to raise”), rô'sh Can signify the victory and power of an enthroned king—God will “lift up [1] head,” or exert His rule ( Can represent the “hair on one’s head”: “And on the seventh day, he shall shave all his hair off his rô'sh; he shall shave off his beard and his eyebrows, all his hair” ( Can connote unity, representing every individual in a given group: “Have they not sped? have they not divided the prey; to every man a damsel or two …” ( Can also emphasize the individual: “And there was a great famine in Samaria: and, behold, they besieged it, until an ass’s head
Used substantively, the word Can mean “first fruits”: “As for the oblation of the first fruits, ye shall offer them unto the Lord: but they shall not be burnt on the altar for a sweet savor” ( Epicureans - The physical doctrine of Epicurus was as follows: Nothing Can ever spring from nothing, nor Can any thing ever return to nothing. The universe always existed, and will always remain; for there is nothing into which it Can be changed. There is nothing in nature, nor Can any thing be conceived, beside body and space. Body is that which possesses the properties of bulk, figure, resistance, and gravity; it is this alone which Can touch and be touched. Beside body and space, no third nature Can be conceived. The universe is immovable, because there is no place beyond it into which it Can move. These four parts are so perfectly combined as to form one subtle substance, which, while it remains in the body, is the cause of all its faculties, motions, and passions, and which Cannot be separated from it, without producing the entire dissolution of the animal system. Perfect happiness Cannot possibly be possessed without the pleasure that attends freedom from pain, and the enjoyment of the good things of life. This happy state Can only be attained by a prudent care of the body, and a steady government of the mind. In a happy life, pleasure Can never be separated from virtue
Trust - Or if the object, though real, is not strong enough to bear up him that trusts himself to it, his confidence Can bring him only loss. Only the revelation of His grace Can call forth and ground faith in God. But the two Cannot be separated from each other, since the Christian knowledge of God arises only in and with the trust in salvation. But Can this view be consistently maintained? Faith in Christ—not as Prophet merely, but as the Bearer of salvation—is justified only as we have ground for the assurance that in Him God is dealing with us. Only as men know God in Christ Can they know what faith in its full sense is. ’ Neither Can it be reliance upon Jesus except as the essential revelation of the Father. If God has once changed His purpose, why should He not do so again? Only where God is manifest in Christ as the Reconciler of the world (2 Corinthians 5:19) Can there be perfect security for time and eternity. Moreover, not even what men call a good conscience Can give security (1 Corinthians 4:3-4, 1 John 1:8 ff. God is greater than our heart—He Can pardon and heal. Because he has the earnest of the Spirit—because God’s love has been shed abroad in his heart—he Can even glory in tribulations (Romans 5:3-5, cf. Out of the richness of the grace of this fellowship he Can know that all things work together for his good, that is, for his salvation, and he is persuaded that nothing Can separate him from the love of God which is in Christ. There is no power that Can gainsay the loving will of the eternal God (Romans 8:18-39). Only the Christian Can enjoy perfect freedom from anxious care in order that he may devote himself fully to the work which God has given him. And because he sees in Christ the grand purpose of God in the redemption of the world and the security for the final accomplishment of that purpose, he Cannot despair of the world any more than he Can despair of himself. Because he knows the grace of Christ he Can gladly accept his own lot in life, and ‘in the patience of hope and the labour of love’ serve and wait and watch (Luke 12:35-36, 2 Corinthians 5:9-10). ...
Christian trust is a state of heart; yet it has seemed better to lay stress upon its ground and essential significance than upon its psychological aspects. Only God Can give them
Atheist - The two leading hypotheses which have prevailed, among Atheists, respecting this world and its origin, are, that of Ocellus Lucanus, adopted and improved by Aristotle, that it was eternal; and that of Epicurus, that it was formed by a fortuitous concourse of atoms. ...
Of all the false doctrines and foolish opinions that ever infested the mind of man, nothing Can possibly equal that of Atheism, which is such a monstrous contradiction of all evidence, to all the powers of understanding, and the dictates of common sense, that it may be well questioned whether any man Can really fall into it by a deliberate use of his judgment. If it be evident, self-evident to every man of thought, that there Can be no effect without a cause, what shall we say of that manifold combination of effects, that series of operations, that system of wonders, which fill the universe, which present themselves to all our perceptions, and strike our minds and our senses on every side? Every faculty, every object of every faculty, demonstrates a Deity. The meanest insect we Can see, the minutest and most contemptible weed we Can tread upon, is really sufficient to confound Atheism, and baffle all its pretensions. How much more that astonishing variety and multiplicity of God's works with which we are continually surrounded! Let any man survey the face of the earth, or lift up his eyes to the firmament; let him consider the nature and instincts of brute animals, and afterward look into the operations of his own mind, and will he presume to say or suppose that all the objects he meets with are nothing more than the result of unaccountable accidents and blind chance? Can he possibly conceive that such wonderful order should spring out of confusion? or that such perfect beauty should be ever formed by the fortuitous operations of unconscious, unactive particles of matter? As well, nay better, and more easily, might he suppose that an earthquake might happen to build towns and cities; or the materials carried down by a flood fit themselves up without hands into a regular fleet. Nothing Can be more unreasonable than to ascribe to chance an effect which appears with all the characters of a wise design and contrivance. Samuel Clarke, in his "Demonstration of the Being of a God," says, that Atheism arises either from stupid ignorance, or from corruption of principles and manners, or from the reasonings of false philosophy; and he adds, that the latter, who are the only Atheistical persons capable of being reasoned with at all, must of necessity own that, supposing it Cannot be proved to be true, yet it is a thing very desirable, and which any wise man would wish to be true, for the great benefit and happiness of man, that there was a God, an intelligent and wise, a just and good Being, to govern the world. Whatever hypothesis these men Can possibly frame, whatever argument they Can invent, by which they would exclude God and providence out of the world; that very argument or hypothesis, will of necessity lead them to this concession. If they suppose that the world was made by chance, and is every moment subject to be destroyed by chance again; no man Can be so absurd as to contend, that it is as comfortable and desirable to live in such an uncertain state of things, and so continually liable to ruin, without any hope of renovation, as in a world that is under the preservation and conduct of a powerful, wise, and good God. If they argue against the being of God, from the faults and defects which they imagine they Can find in the frame and constitution of the visible and material world; this supposition obliges them to acknowledge that it would have been better the world had been made by an intelligent and wise Being, who might have prevented all faults and imperfections. Lastly, if they suppose the world to be eternally and necessarily self-existent, and consequently that every thing in it is established by a blind and eternal fatality; no rational man Can at the same time deny, but that liberty and choice, or a free power of acting, is a more eligible state, than to be determined thus in all our actions, as a stone is to move downward, by an absolute and inevitable fate
Religion - As it respects natural religion, some doubt whether, properly speaking, there Can be any such thing; since, through the fall, reason is so depraved, that man without revelation is under the greatest darkness and misery, as may be easily seen by considering the history of those nations who are destitute of it, and who are given up to barbarism, ignorance, cruelty, and evils of every kind. So far as this, however, may be observed, that the light of nature Can give us no proper ideas of God, nor inform us what worship will be acceptable to him. It does not tell us how man became a fallen sinful creature, as he is, nor how he Can be recovered. Such a system, therefore, it is supposed, Can hardly be said to be religious which leaves man in such uncertainty, ignorance, and impiety. ...
Now, though it is very possible that no man, or body of men, left to themselves from infancy in a desert world, would ever have made a theological discovery, yet, whatever propositions relating to the being and attributes of the First Cause and duty of man, Can be demonstrated by human reason, independent of written revelation, may be called natural theology, and are of the utmost importance, as being to us the first principles of all religion
Sacrament - As God, He is the principal cause of them, since God alone Can give to a material rite the power to produce grace; Christ as Man instituted them and also gives them their efficacy from His merits and death. g Extreme Unction, Can remit grave sin. Baptism, Confirmation, and Holy Orders imprint a character on the soul, hence they Can be received but once. ,the contracting parties, are the ministers of Matrimony; a lay person Can be the extraordinary minister of Baptism in the case of danger from death; outside the above, the minister must be ordained. Heretical and schismatical ministers validly ordained, Can administer valid sacraments, for the efficacy of the sacraments is solely from Divine institution and the merits of Christ, and so does not depend on the faith or worthiness of the minister
Sacrament of Penance - Secondly, it shows that the forgiveness of sins by the use of this power is effected through an external rite or sacrament, since it is only by external communication between judge and culprit that a judicial process Can be conducted among human beings. However, from other sources we know that the strict necessity of this sacrament, Penance, as it has been called for many centuries, applies to mortal sins only, and venial sins Can be forgiven without recourse to the sacramental tribunal. Moreover, Catholic doctrine teaches that the actual reception of Penance is strictly necessary for judicial forgiveness, and although mortal sins Can be taken from the soul by an act of perfect contrition this contrition must imply the intention of submitting them to the sacramental tribunal at the nearest opportunity. Penance Can be received by any person who has committed sin, whether mortal or venial, after Baptism. Sins forgiven in a previous confession may be made again the matter of absolution, since the soul Can always receive the grace which would remit such sins if they were still present
Sign - The Lord Can take the ordinary things of life and make them unusually profitable for His glory. There Can be no joy in the sweetest scenes of earth unless He is present. He only Can keep us from the second death. ...
Chapter6:11 (b) We learn the lesson from this sign that the hunger of the heart and the desires of the soul Can only be satisfied and gratified by the presence and power of the Lord JESUS. ...
Chapter9:7 (b) This reveals that only the Lord JESUS Can open blind eyes to see their need and to see the sufficiency of the Saviour. ...
Chapter11:44 (b) This is a blessed sign to teach us that only JESUS CHRIST Can give life to a dead sinner and only the Word of CHRIST Can break open the grave and cause a resurrection. Only CHRIST JESUS Can do either or both of these blessed miracles in our lives today. ...
Chapter21:6 (c) This is to teach us that we Cannot be successful in life in the true sense of the word unless the Lord directs our way
Locust - "The legs and thighs of these insects are so powerful that they Can leap to a height of two hundred times the length of their bodies. The invasions of locusts are the heaviest calamites that Can befall a country. No walls Can stop them; no ditches arrest them; fires kindled in their path are forthwith extinguished by the myriads of their dead, and the countless armies march on (Joel 2:8,9 )
Trinity - Scott observes, if distinct personality, agency, and divine perfections, be in Scripture ascribed to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, no words Can more exactly express the doctrine, which must unavoidably be thence inferred, than those commonly used on this subject, viz. But if the most common of God's works, with which we are the most conversant, be in this respect incomprehensible, how Can men think that the modus existetendi (or manner of existence) of the infinite Creator Can be level to their capacities?...
The doctrine of the Trinity is indeed a mystery, but no man hath yet shown that it involves in it a real contradiction
Wealth - Only by getting rid of it Can they find eternal life (Matthew 6:24; Matthew 13:22; Matthew 19:16; Matthew 19:21-22). ...
Christians have to be alert constantly to the dangers associated with money, as the desire for it Can lead to spiritual ruin (Proverbs 11:28; 1 Timothy 6:9-10). ...
The Bible does not always condemn wealth, for the wealthy Can help others by their generous giving (Deuteronomy 15:1-11; Matthew 27:57-60; Luke 12:33; Luke 16:9-13; Acts 4:36-37; Acts 20:35; 2 Corinthians 8:14; 2 Corinthians 9:6-7; 1 Timothy 6:17-19; see GIVING)
Flesh - Salvation is of GOD, and only GOD Can save by revealing Himself to the soul. No action of the person (the flesh) Can give eternal life to a lost man. Their flesh dominates their lives, and they are occupied with what they Can see, hear, taste, smell and feel
Consume - The word Can also refer to the “disappearance” of something: “And the water was kâlâh in the bottle …” ( Can be used of “coming to an end” or “the process of ending”: “The barrel of meal shall not waste” (1 Kings 17:14). ...
Kâlâh Can have the more positive connotation of “successfully completing” something
Oecumenical Councils - When the pope has spoken ex cathedra to make his own the decisions of any council, regardless of the number of its members, nothing further Can be wanted to make them binding on the whole Church
Speckled Bird - ]'>[2] Can hardly be other than ‘Is mine heritage unto me ( i. The rendering proposed by some, ‘mine heritage is unto me the ravenous hyæna ,’ Cannot be obtained from the present text, which, however, is possibly incorrect
Confession - But the Sinaiticus, Alexandrinus, and Vaticanus manuscripts and Vulgate read "sins" (hamartias ). Confession is desirable...
(1) in case of wrong done to a neighbor, Matthew 18:15;...
(2) to a Christian adviser, ordained or unordained, anyone who Can apply God's written word suitably to one's need, and "pray for" and with one, James 5:16;...
(3) open confession of any wrong done to the church, which has caused scandal to religion, in token of penitence
Hatred - The only hatred it Can express is hatred of evil ( Hebrews 1:9 , Judges 1:23 , Revelation 2:6 ; Revelation 17:15 )
Contraction - ) The shortening of a word, or of two words, by the omission of a letter or letters, or by reducing two or more vowels or syllables to one; as, ne'er for never; Can't for Can not; don't for do not; it's for it is
Elishah - African coast, both districts famous for the purple dye. There are difficulties in all these identifications, possibly because the name itself denoted different districts at different epochs, and no certainty Can yet be attained
Selah - " The selah reminds us that the psalm requires a peaceful and meditative soul which Can apprehend what the Holy Spirit propounds
Reference - ) One of whom inquires Can be made as to the integrity, capacity, and the like, of another
Asenath - ...
Asenath is the heroine of a remarkable Jewish and Christian romance, in which she renounces her false gods before her marriage with Joseph; it Can be traced back to the 5th cent
Condescend - Can they think me so broken, so debased, with corporal servitude, that my mind ever will condescend to such absurd commands? ...
Thunder - ...
Revelation 14:2 (b) It is symbolical of the great and mysterious power of GOD in that no one Can understand it, nor control it
God - )...
God is a Trinity, knows all things (1 John 3:20), Can do all things (Jeremiah 32:17; Jer 32:27 - except those things against His nature like lie, break His word, cheat, steal, etc
Integrity - Such a character Can look forward to eternity without dismay
Ecumenical Councils - When the pope has spoken ex cathedra to make his own the decisions of any council, regardless of the number of its members, nothing further Can be wanted to make them binding on the whole Church
Aecumenical Councils - When the pope has spoken ex cathedra to make his own the decisions of any council, regardless of the number of its members, nothing further Can be wanted to make them binding on the whole Church
Mystery - ) A profound secret; something wholly unknown, or something kept cautiously concealed, and therefore exciting curiosity or wonder; something which has not been or Can not be explained; hence, specifically, that which is beyond human comprehension
Esau - His family has become extinct, "cut off forever," so that there is none "remaining of the house of Esau," Obadiah 1:18; Jeremiah 49:17; Ezekiel 25:13, and "the things of Esau" have been "so searched out and his hidden things sought up," Obadiah 1:6, "that not a relic Can be found in their ancient dwellings
Egg - As a desirable article of food, the egg is mentioned, Luke 11:12 : "If a son ask for an egg, will his father offer him a scorpion?" It has been remarked that the body of the scorpion is very like an egg, as its head Can scarcely be distinguished, especially, if it be of the white kind, which is the first species mentioned by AElian, Avicenna, and others
Zacharias - There has been much dispute who this Zacharias was, but there Can be little or no doubt that the allusion is to Zechariah, the son of Jehoiada, 2 Chronicles 24:20-21; and he may have been called "the son" of Barachias from his grandfather
Esther, the Book of - Has always been esteemed Canonical, both by Jews and Christians, though certain additions to it, found in some versions and manuscripts, are apocryphal. The chief value of the book is to illustrate the wonder- working providence of God, his control of human passions, his righteous judgment of sinners, and his care for his covenant people- whom, even when captives in a strange land, he Can exalt above all their foes
Seminaries And Studies, Congregation of - It Can itself confer degrees
Vocation - What Can be urged for them who, not having the vocation of poverty to scribble, out of mere wantonness make themselves ridiculous! ...
3
Pot - The term "pot" is applicable to so many sorts of vessels that it Can scarcely be restricted to any one in particular. The water-pots of Cana appear to have been large amphorae, such as are in use at the present day in Syria
Avail - See ABLE , Can , GOOD , MAY , PREVAIL , STRENGTH , WHOLE , WORK
Benediction - The Benediction Can only be pronounced by a Bishop orPriest
Church - ) and shews, as plain as words Can make if, that the vine and the branches are not more closely knit together, and forming one, than is Christ and his church. Yea, the figure doth not come up to the reality; for a branch may be, and sometimes is, separated from the vine, but not so Can this take place between Christ and his church, for he saith, "Because I live, ye shall live also. (See those Scriptures, Hosea 2:19-20; Revelation 19:7-9)...
The best service, I apprehend, which I Can render to the reader, under this article of the church, will be (to do what I should otherwise have done under the former, when speaking of Christ, but conceiving it might as well be noticed under this,) to bring into one view the several names which Christ and his church have, in common, in the word of God, which certainly form the highest evidence that Can be desired, in proof of their union and oneness and interest in each other. Nothing, indeed, Can be more lovely and delightful to the contemplation. (Isaiah 41:8 and Isaiah 49:3)...
Without enlarging this point farther, for enough, I presume, hath been advanced in proof of the thing itself, nothing Can be more plain, and nothing Can be more highly satisfactory, than this oneness, from union and participation between Christ and his church
Grass - Yereq Can modify deshe to emphasize the green color (2 Kings 19:26 ; Psalm 37:2 ; Isaiah 37:2 ). Humans in their mortality Can be compared to grass in contrast to God's word (Isaiah 40:6-8 ; compare Isaiah 51:12 ; Psalm 90:5 ; Psalm 103:15 )
Lame - Every sacrifice which man offers outside of CHRIST is defective, and Cannot stand divine inspection. Very few men, if any, Can walk in a straight path where the footprints Can be seen, as in the snow
Regeneration - God, however, Can save them from this hopeless condition by forgiving their sins, giving them new life and restoring them to a right relationship with himself. This is not something people themselves Can do
Vale, Valley - Of this there is fortunately one example which Can be identified with certainty --the deep hollow which compasses the southwest and south of Jerusalem. This word answers to the Arabic wady, and expresses, as no single English word Can, the bed of a stream (often wide and shelving, and like a "valley" in character, which in the rainy season may be nearly filled by a foaming torrent, though for the greater part of the year dry)
Camel - A young camel Can walk one hundred miles in a day. This means that if a rich man will rid himself of pride and humble himself (kneel) he Can get into heaven
Gift - ...
Gifts Can be used to gain friends (Proverbs 19:6 ) or influence (Proverbs 18:16 ). God gives gifts to people so that they Can enjoy life (Ecclesiastes 3:13 )
Will - Will, as will, must be so, or there is no such faculty; but the human will, being finite, hath a necessary bound, which indeed so far may be said to confine it, because it Cannot act beyond it; yet within the extent of its capacity it necessarily is and ever will be spontaneous. "This being understood, it is easy to perceive that man in his fallen state Can only will according to his fallen capacities, and that, however freely his volitions may flow within their extent, he Cannot possibly overpass them. He, therefore, as a sinful, carnal, and perverse apostate, Can will only according to the nature of his apostacy; which is continually and invaribly evil, without capacity to exceed its bounds into goodness, purity, and truth; or otherwise he would will contrary to or beyond his nature and situation, which is equally impossible in itself, and contradictory to the revelation of God
Vail, Veil - In contrast to that ministration, in which the glory had to be veiled because of Israel's inability to behold it, Christians now Can gaze upon the glory of the Lord, whose face is unveiled, and be changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Lord the Spirit. Redemption has been wrought, and God is made known in full grace, and the believer Can go into His presence
Satisfied, To Be - The earth too “can be sated, have its fill,” of rain (Job 38:27). ” God too Can “become surfeited,” especially when men offer sacrifices with the wrong motives: “… I am full of the burnt offerings of rams …” ( Forehead - Maurice, speaking of the religious rites of the Hindoos, says, Before they Can enter the great pagoda, an indispensable ceremony takes place, which Can only be performed by the hand of a brahmin; and that is, the impression of their foreheads with the tiluk, or mark of different colours, as they may belong either to the sect of Veeshnu, or Seeva
Music - And that they excelled in the art, Can as readily be allowed; since we find upon record, strong testimonies of the power and effect upon the mind, both from the strength and charm of the melody, and the skill of the performer. (See 1 Samuel 19:19-24)...
But, while all possible allowance is made to this view of the music of the Hebrews, we Cannot conceive that all that is said of musical instruments in the Old Testament Scriptures means literally so to be received. Hence the great variety of the names we meet with at the head of numberless Psalms, Can never be supposed to refer to such things
Sacramental Confession - Now, in order to perform this office properly, a priest must have a knowledge of the penitent's transgressions, which Can be obtained only from a sincere confession of the penitent himself. Venial sins need not be confessed, for they Can be remitted by contrition, independently of the Sacrament of Penance
Wealth: Involves Danger - Flatterers haunt not cottages: the poor may hear an honest word from his neighbor, but etiquette forbids that the rich man should enjoy the like privilege; for is it not a maxim in Babylon, that rich men have no faults, or only such as their money, like charity, covereth with a mantle? What man Can help slipping when every body is intent upon greasing his ways, so that the smallest chance of standing may be denied him? The world's proverb is, 'God help the poor, for the rich Can help themselves;' but to our mind, it is just the rich who have most need of heaven's help
Needle - Amram, who had tried to convince him of something incredible: ‘Perhaps you are from Pumbeditha [1], where they Can drive an elephant through the eye of a needle’—that is, Can prove that black is white
Covet - ...
One reason why covetousness is so dangerous is that good living, hard working, highly respected people Can be guilty of it, yet not be aware of it. ...
Christians Can resist the temptation to covetousness through exercising sacrificial love
Mother - ”...
'Êm Can represent blood relatives further removed than one’s mother. ” This word Can also mean “stepmother. The word Can signify a mother-in-law, or the mother of one’s wife: “And if a man take a wife and her mother, it is wickedness …” ( Canaan; thy father was an Amorite, and thy mother a Hittite” ( Can represent all one’s female forebears: “Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered with the Lord; and let not the sin of his mother be blotted out” ( Eternity - "Filling duration with his eternity," is a phrase without any meaning: for how Can any man conceive a permanent instant, which coexists with a perpetually flowing duration? One might as well apprehend a mathematical point co-extended with a line, a surface, and all dimensions. We Can conceive of yet smaller portions of duration; and, whether we have given to them artificial names or not, we Can conceive no otherwise of duration, than continuance of being, estimated as to degree, by this artificial admeasurement, and therefore as substantially answering to it. It is not denied but that duration is something distinct from these its artificial measures; yet of this every man's consciousness will assure him, that we Can form no idea of duration except in this successive manner. The proper abstract idea of duration is, however, simple continuance of being, without any reference to the exact degree or extent of it, because in no other way Can it be equally applicable to all the substances of which it is the attribute. Duration is continuance of existence; continuance of existence is capable of being longer or shorter; and hence necessarily arises the idea of the succession of the minutest points of duration into which we Can conceive it divided. Beyond this the mind Cannot go, it forms the idea of duration no other way: and if what we call duration be any thing different from this in God, it is not duration, properly so called, according to human ideas; it is something else, for which there is no name among men, because there is no idea, and therefore it is impossible to reason about it. As long as metaphysicians use the term, they must take the idea: if they spurn the idea, they have no right to the term, and ought at once to confess that they Can go no farther. This, it is true, is as much a definition of the moon, as of infinity of duration; but it is valuable, as it shows that, in the view of this great man, though an advocate of the nunc stans, "the standing now," of eternity: we must abandon the term duration, if we give up the only idea under which it Can be conceived. It follows from this, therefore, that either we must apply the term duration to the divine Being in the same sense in which we apply it to creatures, with the extension of the idea to adoration which has no bounds and limits; or blot it out of our creeds, as a word to which our minds, with all the aid they may derive from the labours of metaphysicians, Can attach no meaning. What is so obvious an excellency in the spirit of man, and in angelic natures, Can never be thought an imperfection in God, when joined with a nature essentially perfect and immutable. If any man will contend, that the period of duration which we call time, is nothing, no farther dispute Can be held with him; and he may be left to deny also the existence of matter, and to enjoy his philosophic revel in an ideal world. It is, however, to be remembered, that the eternal, supreme cause, must of necessity have such a perfect, independent, unchangeable comprehension of all things, that there Can be no one point or instant of his eternal duration, wherein all things that are past, present, and to come, will not be as entirely known and represented to him in one single thought or view, and all things present and future be equally entirely in his power and direction; as if there was really no succession at all, but all things were actually present at once. So it is applied to the Jewish priesthood; to the Mosaic ordinances; to the possession of the land of Canaan; to the hills and mountains; to the earth, &c
God - He is not made up of different parts, nor Can he be divided into different parts. (In the present article many of the qualities, or attributes, of God Can be mentioned only briefly. In addition, it forbids the use of anything in nature or anything made by human hands as a physical image of God, for such things Can lead only to wrong ideas about God (Exodus 20:4-5; Deuteronomy 4:15-19; see IDOL, IDOLATRY). )...
God’s existence Cannot be measured according to time, for he is without beginning and without end. Nothing in the works of creation or in the activities of humans or angels Can add anything to him or take anything from him (Psalms 50:10-13; Acts 17:24-25; Romans 11:36). Nothing Can compare with his mighty power (Isaiah 40:12-15; Isaiah 40:25-26; Jeremiah 32:17; Romans 1:20; Ephesians 1:19-20; Ephesians 3:20; see POWER). ...
God is the possessor of absolute authority and nothing Can exist independently of it (Psalms 2:1-6; Isaiah 2:10-12; Isaiah 2:20-22; Isaiah 40:23; see AUTHORITY). This is a cause for both fear and joy: fear, because it means that no sin Can escape him; joy, because it means that no one who trusts in his mercy Can ever be separated from him (Psalms 139:1-12; Proverbs 15:3; Isaiah 40:27-28; Isaiah 57:15; Jeremiah 23:24; Hebrews 4:13). They Cannot escape God’s judgment through anything they themselves might do. They Can do nothing but repent of their rebellion and surrender before the sovereign God, trusting solely in his grace for forgiveness (Acts 17:30-31; Ephesians 2:8; see GRACE). Since human language Cannot properly describe a person who has no physical form, the Bible has to use pictures and comparisons when speaking of God. ...
Not only is God a person, but believers are so aware of a personal relationship with him that they Can collectively call him ‘our God’ and individually ‘my God’ (Acts 2:39; Philippians 4:19). ...
Firstly, the unchangeability of God means that, because he is infinite, there is no way in which any of his attributes Can become greater or less. They Cannot change for either better or worse. God Can neither increase nor decrease in knowledge, love, righteousness, truth, wisdom or justice, because he possesses these attributes in perfection (Exodus 34:6-7). He Cannot ignore sin but must deal with it (Psalms 9:8; Isaiah 11:4-5; Jeremiah 30:23-24; Romans 1:18; Romans 2:8; see WRATH; JUDGMENT)
Image of God - Nothing else in all creation Can be called a person. They Cannot be defined by or confined to material attributes. They Can and do make moral judgments (Genesis 2:16-27 ). They are choice makers; they Can obey their highest instincts or follow their most morbid urges. A human is the only creature who Can say no to God. Real fellowship Can take place only between two authentic persons
Propitiation - It is the attitude of one who loves goodness and hates evil to such an extent that he Cannot overlook wrongdoing. He Cannot treat sin as if it does not matter (2 Kings 23:26; Jeremiah 21:12; Habakkuk 1:13; Romans 1:18; Romans 2:5; Hebrews 1:9; Revelation 14:8-11; Revelation 19:1-2). ...
God always has an attitude of wrath against sin, and there is nothing sinners Can to do to propitiate God (i. But sinners Cannot act towards God like this. None of their efforts Can quiet God’s wrath against sin or win his favour. Only the blood of Jesus Christ – his death on the cross – Can do that. God’s holy wrath against sin has been satisfied by Christ’s death, and therefore he Can show mercy on the believing sinner. He Can forgive the sinner, yet still be just in doing so (Romans 3:25-26; Hebrews 2:17; 1 John 2:2)
Ever, Everlasting - , to remember yesterday, plan for tomorrow, and consider abstract principles); yet He has not given him divine knowledge: “He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man Can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end. The word Can mean “long ago” (from long ago): “For [3] I have broken thy yoke, and burst thy bands …” ( Can mean “never”: “We are thine: thou never barest rule [4] over them …” ( Can mean “into the indefinite future”: “An Ammonite or Moabite shall not enter into the congregation of the Lord; even to their tenth generation shall they not enter into the congregation of the Lord for ever” ( Can signify “as long as one lives”: “I will not go up until the child be weaned, and then I will bring him, that he may appear before the Lord, and there abide for everw ( Go Out, Go Forth - It Can be used of “giving birth” ( Can refer to the normal activities of life (1 Kings 3:7). Because yâtsâ' Can mean “to bring forth,” it is often used of “divine deliverance,” as the One who “bringeth me forth from mine enemies” ( Can represent the “actual going forth” itself. ” The word tôtsâ'âh Can connote both the source or place of “departure” ( House - This word Can even be applied to a one-room dwelling: “And he [1] said [2], Behold now, my lords, turn in, I pray you, into your servant’s house …” ( Can signify rooms and/or wings of a house: “And let the king appoint officers in all the provinces of his kingdom, that they may gather together all the fair young virgins unto Shushan the palace, to the [3] (literally, to the house of the women; Can also represent the inside of a building or some other structure as opposed to the outside: “Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch” ( Can also mean “place” when used with “grave,” as in Can be used of one’s extended family and even of everyone who lives in a given area: “And the men of Judah came, and there they anointed David king over the house of Judah” ( Hezron - The Hebrew text of 1 Chronicles 2:24 Can be interpreted and translated in different ways
Degradation - (Latin: de, from; gradus, rank: deprivation, abasement, reduction) ...
A vindictive Canonical punishment by which a cleric is reduced to the lay state. It Cannot deprive one of the character received in Holy Orders; nor does it dispense from clerical obligations, such as observance of celibacy and recitation of the Breviary. It Can only be inflicted for crimes expressed in the law and on those, who already deposed and deprived of clerical dress, continue to give scandal for a year
Cemetery - The solemn blessing is contained in the Roman Pontifical and Can be imparted only by the ordinary of the diocese. Thus, should a homicide, or bloodshed, or grave profanity be committed, or an infidel or excororounicated person be buried in the cemetery, it is thereby desecrated, and a reblessing is required and performed by the competent authorities (canons 1205,1207)
Son of God - But, besides these four, many think that he is called the Son of God in such a way and manner as never any other was, is, or Can be, because of his own divine nature, he being the true, proper, and natural Son of God, begotten by him before all worlds, John 3:16
Feelings Religious - For instance; religion consists in contrition, repentance, and devotion: now, what is contrition but a feeling of sorrow for sin? what is devotion but a feeling of love to God and his ways? Who Can separate the idea of feeling from any of these acts? The fact is this; religious feelings, like every thing else, have run into the opposite evil of lukewarmness, and been content with a system without feeling its energy
Diocesan Missions - For the deliverance of this message and the bestowal ofthis blessing all, both Clergy and Laity, have responsibilitiesand therefore the Church turns to them for the means whereby thiswork Can be carried on
Lords of the Philistines - Their functions, so far as Can be gathered from the OT, were the same as those of petty kings
Fowler - Hosea 7:12 pictures Israel as a dumb bird which God will catch with a net so the nation Can be disciplined
Boldness - Second, boldness describes the confidence with which Christians Can now approach God because of the redeeming work of Christ (2Corinthians 3:4-6,2 Corinthians 3:12 ; Hebrews 10:19 ; 1 John 2:28 ; 1 John 4:17 )
Branch - Spreading branches Can symbolize fruitfulness and prosperity (Genesis 49:22 ; Job 8:16 ; Psalm 80:11 ), while withered, burnt, or cut branches symbolize destruction (Job 8:16 ; Isaiah 9:14 ; Jeremiah 11:16 ; Ezekiel 15:2 )
Suspicion - What friendship Can we expect from him who views all our conduct with distrustful eyes, and ascribes every benefit we confer to artifice and stratagem? A Candid man is accustomed to view the characters of his neighbours in the most favourable light, and is like one who dwells amidst those beautiful scenes of nature on which the eye rests with pleasure
Inconsistency - Mark Antony once yoked two lions together, and drove them through the streets of Rome, but no human skill Can ever yoke together the Lion of the Tribe of Judah and the Lion of the Pit
Life: Explains Religion - When you Cannot tell in so many words what true religion is, exhibit it by your actions. Show by your life what grace Can do
Omnipotence - Scripture often affirms that all power belongs to God (Psalm 147:5 ), that all things are possible for God (Luke 1:37 ; Luke 19:26 ), and that God's power exceeds what humans Can ask or think (Ephesians 3:20 ). God's power is revealed in God's creating and sustaining the universe (Psalm 65:6 ; Jeremiah 32:17 ; Hebrews 1:3 ), in God's deliverance of Israel from Pharaoh's forces (Exodus 15:1-18 ), in the conquest of Canaan (Deuteronomy 3:21-24 ), in the incarnation (Luke 1:35 ), in Christ's death on the cross (1 Corinthians 1:17-18 , 1 Corinthians 1:23-24 ), and in the ongoing ministry of the church (1 Corinthians 2:5 ; Ephesians 3:20 )
Homes - A charity which deliberately falls short of this is almost not charity at all, for it is of the essence of the virtue to do all the good that one well Can
Suretiship - It may be difficult to refuse, but it is unrighteousness unless the one who is surety Can bear the loss if it should fall upon him
Atonement - ...
When a man has been guilty of any vice, the best atonement he Can make for it is, to warn others not to fall into the like
Bud - Numbers 17:8 (c) This indicates that GOD Can bring life out of death and to cause that which is helpless to become prosperous
Baptism of the Holy Spirit - This agrees with the church having been begun at Pentecost, and tells us that no one Can be a part of the body of Christ until he is indwelt by the Holy Spirit, being initiated into the one body formed, characterised, by the baptism of the Holy Spirit once for all
Psalms - There Can be no doubt that in connection with the 'singers,' and the praising God with instruments, the Psalms were used
Contain - Behold, the heaven and the heaven of heavens Cannot contain thee. ...
Fear not, my Lord, we Can contain ourselves
Foundation - ...
Other foundation Can no man lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ
Girgashites - Very little is known of this people, whose name, though occurring several times in OT in the list of Can. ]'>[2] ], Joshua 3:10 ; Jos 24:11 , 1 Chronicles 1:14 , Nehemiah 9:8 ), affords no indication of their position, or to what branch of the Canaanites they belonged, except in two instances, namely, Genesis 10:16 , where the ‘Girgashite’ is given as the name of the fifth son of Canaan; and Joshua 24:11 , where the Girgashites would seem to have inhabited the tract on the west of Jordan, the Israelites having been obliged to cross over that river in order to fight the men of Jericho, among whom were the Girgashites
Sweep - The Holy Spirit seeks out that person by many and various means in order to bring him back into "circulation" where he Can be useful again in the service of the King

Variation - ) One of the different arrangements which Can be made of any number of quantities taking a certain number of them together
Jonah - And how striking a one it is, the most inattentive reader Can hardly fail to observe
Shamanism - (probably Manchu: saman, an excited man) ...
A vague term used to designate a form of savage magic or science prevailing among the tribes of Asia, Australasia, and the American Indians and Eskimos. Springing from animism, and closely resembling fetishism, it teaches that all nature is pervaded by spirits or gods which Can be brought near or driven away by various means, such as symbolic magic, fasting, dances, incantations, and demoniac possession, practised by the Shaman
Obedience - Voluntary obedience alone Can be acceptable to God
Father - But as we have forfeited the rights of children by our sins, it is only through Christ that we Can call God by that endearing name, "our Father," John 20:17 Romans 8:15-17

Remission of Sin - Venial sins Can also be remitted, provided sorrow for them be present, by devout attendance at Holy Mass, penitential exercises, charitable works, prayers, etc
Prophecy - The weight of prophecy as an evidence of the truth of the religion of the Bible Can hardly be overestimated. No other claim to supernatural foreknowledge Can be put in comparison with it. And no petty objection to this or that detail, no fancied discovery that here or there fulfilment has not answered to prediction, Can be admitted to shake such evidence of such a comprehensive character
Guilt - The Bible is alive to the psychological effects of guilt, as Can be seen, for instance, in characters like Jephthah and David: Jephthah in his horrifying violence against fellow Israelites after his daughter's death, and David in his supine attitude toward the sins of his sons. A deep feeling of guilt, even if caused by oppressive parenting, Can yet have a positive effect in deepening our appreciation of our failures before God and the debt of obedience that we owe. By the smallest words of hostility we make ourselves "liable for" the fires of hell (Matthew 5:21-22 ), a debt we Can never pay and remain alive (cf
Providence - ...
The opening question of the Heidelberg Catechism (1563) asks: “What is your only comfort in life and death?” Answer: “That I, with body and soul, both in life and in death, am not my own, but belong to my faithful Savior Jesus Christ who so preserves me that without the will of my Father in heaven not a hair Can fall from my head; yea, that all things must work together for my salvation. We Can distinguish this understanding of providence from several distortions which have been advanced throughout the history of the church:...
fatalism: the view that all events are determined by an inviolable law of cause and effect. Armed with this assurance we Can face whatever may come in the knowledge that God will care for us, as He does daily for the birds and flowers. It does mean that nothing Can ever happen to us apart from the knowledge, presence, and love of God, and that in the most desperate of circumstances God is always at work towards the good. ” Because we are sure that God is for us, not against us, we Can afford to live with this mystery which impugns neither God's sovereignty nor His goodness. In the meanwhile, Christians Can face the future in the confidence that nothing “in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:39 NRSV)
Create - ” This verb is of profound theological significance, since it has only God as its subject. Only God Can “create” in the sense implied by bârâ'. 44:12-20; 46:1-7), and so Israel Can expect God to triumph by effecting a new creation (43:16-21; 65:17-25). There is nothing inherent in the word to indicate the nature of the creation involved; it is only when ‛âśâh is parallel to bârâ' that we Can be sure that it implies creation. …” Whether or not the firmament was made of existing material Cannot be determined, since the passage uses only ‛âśâh. The same Can be said of other verses in Genesis: 1:16 (the lights of heaven); 1:25, 3:1 (the animals); 1:31; 2:2 (all his work); and 6:6 (man). Only context Can determine its special nuance. It Can mean either, depending upon the situation
Spirit; Breath - ...
Second, this word Can be used with emphasis on the invisible, intangible, fleeting quality of “air”: “O remember that my life is wind: mine eyes shall no more see good” (Job 7:7). There may be a suggestion of purposelessness, uselessness, or even vanity (emptiness) when rûach is used with this significance: “And the prophets shall become wind, and the word is not in them …” ( Can mean “wind. …” It Can mean a strong, constant wind: “… And the Lord brought an east wind upon the land all that day, and all that night …” ( Can also signify an extremely strong wind: “And the Lord turned a mighty strong west wind …” ( Can put nepesh, “soul,” and rûach in synonymous parallelism: “With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early …” (26:9). Rûach Can represent particular dispositions, as it does in Faith - People Can never be saved from sin, never be accepted by God, on the basis of their good works or their law-keeping. They Can do nothing to deserve or win God’s favour (Romans 4:1-5; Romans 9:30-32; Romans 10:3-4). God’s salvation is not a reward for faith; it is a gift that no one deserves, but any person Can receive it by faith (Romans 3:25; Romans 5:15). ...
Again, faith is not something a person Can boast about. Without such an attitude, no person Can receive God’s salvation (Hebrews 11:6 a). Only as they trust in his power Can they experience in practice the victory, peace and joy that their salvation has brought (Galatians 2:20; Galatians 5:6; Ephesians 1:19)
Advocate - (Job 33:24; Isaiah 42:21; Matthew 17:5; Romans 3:25) Now, then, let me pause, and ask, Hath not this almighty advocate a right to plead for his own rights, and those of his people in him? Was it not an absolute promise, in the charter of grace, that "when he had made his soul an offering for sin, he should see of the travail of his soul, and be satisfied?" (Isaiah 53:10-11) And shall not the blessed Jesus stand up and plead for the fulfilment of those promises? Hath he, indeed, given himself as the sinner's surety "an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savour?" and Can he rest satisfied, till he hath brought all his ransomed people around him in glory?...
Moreover, there is one point more to be considered in this subject of Christ's advocacy, which we have not yet even glanced at, though it forms a principal object, for which the Lord Jesus carries on his high priestly office, in the court of heaven, namely, the destruction of all his enemies, and the enemies of his dear people. " (Isaiah 63:4) So, then, it must follow, that unless we Can suppose what is impossible, that when Jesus returned to heaven he ceased to take concern in the exercises and sorrows and temptations of his redeemed upon earth, and that the triumphs of the powers of darkness engaged not the attention of the Lord to destroy: surely he is now, as much as ever, carrying on, by his everlasting intercession, all the grand purposes of his victory over hell, until he come, in the fulness of the times appointed, finally to crush the foe, and to root out of his kingdom "all things that offend. " No case of his people, however desperate, he refuseth; and none that he undertakes Can fail. Other advocates may, and indeed must, ultimately bring forth disappointment, but no cause put into the hands of Jesus Can. Not all the hallelujahs of heaven Can make him for a moment intermit his overlooking either the persons, or the causes, of all his redeemed upon earth. For it is not their deservings, but his love; not what they have done, or Can do for themselves, but what he Can do for them, that becomes the standard of his grace. He Can, and will save to the uttermost, all that come to God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them
Fideism - The exponents of this philosophy, among whom were De Bonald, De Lamennais, Bonnetty, Ventura, and Rohrbacher, were theologians and philosophers who wished to offset the prevalent materialistic scepticism and to place Christianity on a firmer basis than human reason Can furnish
Shem - The word signifies ‘name,’ which Can also denote ‘fame,’ ‘renown’ (cf. In the other tradition ( Genesis 9:20-27 ) ‘Shem’ stands for a people in Palestine the Hebrews, or some portion of them with whom ‘Japheth’ lived in close conjunction, and to whom ‘Canaan’ was subjugated

Meroz - They gave asylum to the fleeing Canaanites accursed of God, whereas Jael who slew their general is "blessed" (Judges 5:24). Bather their sin was omission (faint-heartedness, neutrality where there Can be no real neutrality: Matthew 12:30; Matthew 25:30), they neglected the duty of coming to Israel's help in the struggle against God's foes
Candle - Lamp more accurately represents the original than Candle. Image of conscience, "the Candle of the Lord, searching the inward man" (Proverbs 20:27). Of prosperity; the sinner's short Candle soon goes out, the righteous shall shine as the sun forever (Job 21:17; Job 18:5; Proverbs 13:9; Matthew 13:43). Of the all-seeing accuracy with which Jehovah will search out sinners, so that in no dark grainer Can they escape punishment (Zephaniah 1:12; Amos 9:3). In beautiful contrast, as the woman in the parable "lit the Candle, swept the house, and sought diligently until she found" the lost piece of silver, so God (Luke 15:8) searches out His elect so that not one is lost, and takes each out of the darkness of this world, and restores the divine image, with a view to their salvation
Mortar - " The husk upon the grain Can be bruised off it, but the mortar of trial Cannot remove the fool's folly inherent by nature and habit (Jeremiah 13:23)
Affliction: Noble Piety Nourished Amid - What a noble spectacle is a man whom, nothing Can warp, a firm, decided servant of God, defying hurricanes of temptation! ...
Hymn - From the spiritual contents of such songs it is difficult to distinguish the three kinds of Divine praise indicated by the different terms, psalms, hymns, and Canticles. Moreover a song Can be composed in prose, but by hymn is understood a song whose sequence of words is ruled by a symmetrical arrangement of verses, with or without rhyme
Ignorance - The former is ignorance properly so-called, the absence of that knowledge which one Can and should have, as the lack of medical knowledge in a physician
Depths - The biblical message is that the sovereign God controls the fearsome, mysterious, tragic, and unknown elements of human existence and that even these inanimate aspects of existence Can be called on to praise Him

Regeneration: Need of - A raw countryman having brought his gun to the gun-smith for repairs, the latter is reported to have examined it, and finding it to be almost too far gone for repairing, said, 'Your gun is in a very worn-out, ruinous, good-for-nothing condition, what sort of repairing do you want for it ?' 'Well,' said the countryman, 'I don't see as I Can do with anything short of a new stock, lock, and barrel; that ought to set it up again

Famine - Nothing that the world gives Can satisfy the craving of the human heart
Chaff - As chaff contains no chemicals that Can be used by the farmer in any way, so the wicked are lacking in any value to GOD, and so are shut out from GOD's presence because of their worthlessness (See Matthew 3:12)
Corner Stone - In 1 Corinthians 3:11 we are told "other foundation Can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ;" and in Ephesians 2:20 we read "Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone

An honest physician leaves his patient, when he Can contribute no farther to his health
Joseph - No man Can see the Father's face unless he comes with the Lord JESUS, the elder brother
Attrition - It might, however, be easily shown that the mere sorrow for sin because of its consequences, and not on account of its evil nature, is no more acceptable to God than hypocrisy itself Can be
Trombone - It is the only member of the family of wind instruments whose scale, both diatonic and chromatic, is complete without the aid of keys or pistons, and which Can slide from note to note as smoothly as the human voice or a violin
Error - Ignorance implies lack of knowledge without the formation of a judgment; error Can occur only in the presence of some knowledge, and expresses a mistaken judgment
Extreme Unction - Its minister is a priest; the recipient must be illfrom sickness, and in a state of grace, though from its secondary end it Can also act as a sacrament of the dead and remit mortal sin
Forget - But God does not “forget” His people: “Can a woman forget her suckling child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee” ( Leopard - This well-known wild animal is introduced by the prophet as an illustration: as the leopard Cannot change its spots, no more Can rebellious man change his nature
Mow - ) May; Can
Eagle - There Can be little doubt that the eagle of Scripture is the griffon (Gyps fulvus), or great vulture, see margin of the R
Jeduthun - But there are some Psalms which have the name of Jeduthun, that seem to have been composed either during the captivity, or after it; and consequently the name of Jeduthun prefixed to them, Can signify nothing else, but that some of his descendants, and of Jeduthun's class, composed them long after the death of the famous Jeduthun, one of their ancestors
Bottom, Bottomless - In Romans 10:7 , quoted from Deuteronomy 30:13 , the abyss (the abode of the lost dead) is substituted for the sea (the change in the quotation is due to the facts of the death and resurrection of Christ); the AV has "deep" here and in Luke 8:31 ; the reference is to the lower regions as the abode of demons, out of which they Can be let loose, Revelation 11:7 ; 17:8 ; it is found seven times in the Apocalypse, 9:1,2,11; 11:7; 17:8; 20:1,3; in 9:1,2 the RV has "the pit of the abyss
Palm - It is only by a Christian that affront Can really be put upon Christ (Philippians 3:18)
Wormwood - ]'>[1] From the passages of Scripture, however, where this plant is mentioned, something more than the bitterness of its qualities seems to be intimated, and effects are attributed to it greater than Can be produced by the wormwood of Europe
lu'Cius - Peter preached on the day of Pentecost, (Acts 2:10 ) and there Can hardly be a doubt that he was one of "the men of Cyrene" who, being "scattered abroad upon the persecution that arose about Stephen," went to Antioch preaching the Lord Jesus

Sebastian, Saint - Little more than the fact of his martyrdom Can be proved
Miletus - There were Christians and bishops there from the fifth to the eighth century; but the city has long been in ruins, and its exact site Can hardly be determined, so much is the coast altered around the mouth of the Meander

Intercession of Christ - He Can be "touched with the feeling of our infirmities," and is both a merciful and a faithful high priest (Hebrews 2:17,18 ; 4:15,16 )
Pelagianism - As to grace, man does not need this gift, because the will of itself Can avoid sin and merit heaven
All Saints' Day - " Amid the solemnities ofworship "and memorial we thus learn that the living and the deadare bound together by ties that are eternal, ties that no changeof time Can break, because before God they are one in the MysticalBody of Christ
Palm - It is only by a Christian that affront Can really be put upon Christ (Philippians 3:18)
Serapion, Penitent of Alexandria - No argument, however, for communion in one kind Can be drawn from this, as doubtless the bread had been dipped in the Eucharistic wine, according to Eastern fashion (see Bingham's Antiq
Retreat - The Retreat as nowconducted gives each one the opportunity to make special effort tosee more clearly those great principles of Religion which Can onlybe seen by such effort and by such special spiritual exercises
Jurisdiction, Hierarchy of - Since the episcopate was constituted by Christ as part of the divine organization of the Church, the pope as supreme head of the Church Cannot suppress the episcopate, but must appoint bishops who in the diocese committed to their care enjoy ordinary jurisdiction. As the power of Orders and jurisdiction are really distinct, it Can happen that a bishop Can have the fullness of the episcopal order but lack jurisdiction, e
Repentance - There Can be no evangelical faith which does not spring from a heart broken and contrite on account of sin; on the other hand, there Can be no true repentance which has not the germ of faith in God, and of hope in His mercy, in it
Development of Doctrine - ...
(3) Revelation as completed in the Apostles will always remain the same, in the sense that its meaning Cannot be changed nor Can its opposite become true. Hence the Church is not tied down to a repetition of ancient formulas (as the Greek schismatics imagine), nor Can such new dogmas be rightly called corruptions of Christ's doctrine (as many Protestants consider them)
Doctrine, Development of - ...
(3) Revelation as completed in the Apostles will always remain the same, in the sense that its meaning Cannot be changed nor Can its opposite become true. Hence the Church is not tied down to a repetition of ancient formulas (as the Greek schismatics imagine), nor Can such new dogmas be rightly called corruptions of Christ's doctrine (as many Protestants consider them)
Race - All have sinned and are under the judgment of God, but all Can be saved through accepting the salvation that God in his grace offers (Romans 2:9-10; Romans 3:19; Romans 3:23-24). ...
Since all are saved on the same basis, there Can be no inequality in the church
Souls: Care For - Every armful is an item, and he Cannot forego that tempting clump. By-and-by, he fetches his bold boy who Can follow wherever a chamois Can climb, but the boy after a hard scramble comes back with the tidings, 'Father, it Cannot be done. The grass waves its flowers in the breeze and scorns the daring climbers from below; but where there is a will, there is a way; and what Cannot be reached from below may be gained from above
Beast - ”...
The word behêmâh Can be used of all the domesticated beasts or animals other than man: “And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and [2] beast of the earth after his kind …” ( Can, however, be used of cattle only: “Shall not their cattle and their substance and every beast of theirs [3] be ours?” ( Hierarchy of Jurisdiction - Since the episcopate was constituted by Christ as part of the divine organization of the Church, the pope as supreme head of the Church Cannot suppress the episcopate, but must appoint bishops who in the diocese committed to their care enjoy ordinary jurisdiction. As the power of Orders and jurisdiction are really distinct, it Can happen that a bishop Can have the fullness of the episcopal order but lack jurisdiction, e
Aging - Such service by the aging Can bring blessings to their families, as did Timothy's grandmother and mother (2 Timothy 1:5 ). They Can experience new family joys, even after many previous sad experiences (Ruth 4:13-17 )
Taste - The believer seeks to appropriate as much as his heart and mind Can hold. It is one of those indescribable experiences which Cannot be explained. You may taste an orange, and know at once what it is, but you Cannot explain it to another. So the sweetness of knowing CHRIST Can only be experienced by each individual himself
Incest - "In order, " says one, "to preserve chastity in families, and between persons of different sexes brought up and living together in a state of unreserved intimacy, it is necessary, by every method possible, to inculcate an abhorrence of incestuous conjunctions; which abhorrence Can only be upheld by the absolute reprobation of all commerce of the sexes between near relations. Restrictions which extend to remoter degrees of kindred than what this reason makes it necessary to prohibit from intermarriage, are founded in the authority of the positive law which ordains them, and Can only be justified by their tendency to diffuse wealth, to connect families, or to promote some political advantage
Wilderness - In places where the ground is not worth cultivating it Can be used for pasture. The wilderness of JUDAHis a plain extending the whole length of the Dead Sea; but some of it Can be used for pasture land. ...
Typically the wilderness was outside Canaan, and stands in contrast to it. Canaan is figuratively a heavenly position and conflict, corresponding with the need of the armour of Ephesians 6:11 , to stand against the wiles of the devil
Allegory - We never Can be sufficiently thankful to God the Holy Ghost, for bringing the church acquainted with the blessed truths which were folded up in this patriarchal history. Well might it be said, as it is said, when Jesus, who had been secretly set up from everlasting the glorious Head of his body the church, was openly to be brought into the world,"Let all the angels of God worship him!" (Hebrews 1:6) It will be a blessed view of this sweet allegory, now so graciously explained to us as it is, by the Holy Ghost himself, if both he that writes and he that reads, when summing up the wonderful account, Can say with the apostle, "We are not children of the bond-woman, but of the free
Copts - To him belongs the government of the Coptic church, during the vacancy of the patriarchal see. At present, however, little more than the mere shadow of Christianity Can be seen in Egypt; and, in point of numbers, not more than fifty thousand Christians in all Can be found in this country
Magic, Magicians - An examination of the various notices of magic in the Bible gives this general result: They do not, act far as Can be understood, once state positively that any but illusive results were produced by magical rites. ) The Scriptures therefore afford no evidence that man Can gain supernatural powers to use at his will
Merit - Hence, man Can now, in virtue of the merits of Christ and with the help of His graces, strictly merit before God a supernatural reward in the form of the beatific vision. The just man Can then merit strictly eternal life, an increase of sanctifying grace and of glory in heaven. The man in sin Can less strictly merit, through works of penance assisted by grace, actual graces and justification through sanctifying grace
Call, Calling - Some suppose that, as the elect only will be saved, it is to be preached only to them; and, therefore, Cannot invite all to come to Christ. But to this it is answered, that an unknown decree Can be no rule of action, Deuteronomy 29:29 . Proverbs 2:13 ; that, as we know not who are the elect, we Cannot tell but he may succeed our endeavours by enabling those who are addressed to comply with the call, and believe; that it is the Christian minister's commission to preach the Gospel to every creature, Mark 16:1-20 ; that the inspired writers never confined themselves to preach to saints only, but reasoned with and persuaded sinners, 2 Corinthians 5:11 :...
and, lastly that a general address to men's consciences has been greatly successful in promoting their conversion. But it has been asked, if none but the elect Can believe, and no man has any ability in himself to comply with the call, and as the Almighty knows that none but those to whom he gives grace Can be effectually called, of what use is it to insist on a general and external call? To this it is answered, that, by the external call, gross enormous crimes are often avoided; habits of vice have been partly conquered; and much moral good at least has been produced. It also observed, that though a man Cannot convert himself, yet he has a power to do some things that are materially good, though not good in all those circumstances that accompany or flow from regeneration: such were Ahab's humility, 1 Kings xxi 29; Nineveh's repentance, Jeremiah 3:5 ; and Herod's hearing of John, Mark 6:20
Kindness - ...
In the second place, it is the believer who Can truly celebrate God's kindness, even in areas of experience not directly related to salvation from the guilt and punishment of sin. Paul Can take the injunction a step further and claim to exemplify kindness in his own life to a degree that commends his ministry as authentic (2 Corinthians 6:6 ). It is only as the fruit of God's Spirit that kindness Can be a consistent part of the believer's experience (Galatians 5:22 )
Love Feast - But there is some uncertainty as to whether the reference is to that church's observance of the Lord's Supper (which elsewhere Paul Can describe with terms like "coming together to eat, " 1 Corinthians 11:17-22 ), or to a fellowship meal that may have preceded or followed observance of the Lord's Supper. That this unity was a very serious matter Can be seen in that the love feast is mentioned in the context of a denunciation of false teachers and admonishment of the congregation. The significance of the event was such that the unhindered participation of false believers in the love feasts, which signified their acceptance into the fellowship, was a "blemish" or taint on the event and also a danger for the church. ...
Whether these developments are relevant to an understanding of the love feast as it occurs in Jude Cannot be determined. What Can be said is that the event (whether originally observance of the Lord's Supper, a fellowship meal, or some combination of the two is meant) was to be a visible expression of love and unity
Door - ...
John 10:1 (a) Entrance to Heaven Can be obtained only by and through the Lord JESUS CHRIST. No other person Can have anything whatever to do with the saving of the soul. Only CHRIST Can make us fit to go to Heaven, and then take us there
Saints - Probably there is no real difference in sanctity, because all holiness in every creature Can be but a derived holiness. If this be true, let the reader contemplate, if he Can, the personal glory of the Lord Jesus Christ in this holiness of his nature, and his redeemed in him, Such honour have all his saints! And when he hath duly pondered this most blessed of all subjects, let him add this to it, namely, that it is an holiness that never Can be lost, sullied, or lessened
Mountain Range - In the singular form the word Can mean a “mountain range” or the “mountains” of a given area: “… And [1] set his face toward the mount [2] Gilead” ( Can be used of particular “mountains”: “… And he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of Godeven to Horeb” ( Can speak of the foundations of the mountains as rooted in the underworld (
Find - ...
Mâtsâ' Can also mean “to discover. As noted earlier, there Can be a connotation of the unintentional here, as when the Israelites “found” a man gathering wood on the Sabbath ( Can mean not only to “find” something, but to “obtain” it as one’s own: “Then Isaac sowed in that landand received in the same year …” (Job 11:7: “Canst thou by searching find out God?” (cf
Naphtali - I would ask, are not many of the dying patriarch's benedictions to his children considered more with reference to Christ, than to the twelve patriarchs? Do we not consider the blessing of Judah, as one whom his brethren shall praise, and as one from whom the sceptre shall not depart, as having respect principally, if not altogether, to the person of Christ? And are not the several blessings prophesied of Joseph, on the dying bed of his father, spoken directly with an eye to Joseph's Lord? And if so, why may we not with equal safety, in the blessing of Naphtali discover Christ also? Is Naphtali an hind let loose? And Can we overlook that hind of the morning, even Jesus, whom the hunters pursued, and the dogs of Bashan compassed around? (See Psalms 22:1-31 in the title of it, and throughout the Psalm. ) And when we read what the church saith of her Lord, as a roe or a hind upon the mountains of spices, and thus frequently through the book of the Songs, surely it Can be no difficult matter to behold Jesus in the type, and regard him who giveth goodly words. " And to whom are we to look for any, or for all the tribes of Israel in the possession of the divine favour, and so satisfied with it? Of whom, among the sons of Jacob, Can it be said with truth, "that they are full of the blessing of the Lord," unless we first behold him in whom it hath "pleased the Father that all fulness should dwell," and from him, and in him, and by him, all the seed of Israel "are justified and shall glory?" Surely it is blessed first to eye Christ as possessing and being the cause of the true Naphtali's portion, and then, by virtue of an union with him, and interest in him, to behold those blessings flowing in upon his inheritance
Orders, Holy - ,the right to actual graces so that the Divine Office and its obligations Can be rightly fulfilled
an indelible character imprinted on the soul (according to the more common opinion, each of the above orders im- prints a new character on the soul, distinct one from the other)
the bestowal of spiritual power, enabling the recipient to discharge the sacred offices, i.
MINISTER AND SUBJECT ...
The ordinary minister of a valid ordination is a consecrated bishop; the extraordinary minister Can be a priest who obtains the power to confer some orders, either from law or Apostolic indult, e. , a cardinal or an abbot nullius Can confer first tonsure and the minor orders. The minister of episcopal consecration is a bishop, who is assisted by two other bishops; the Holy See Can dispense from the need of co-consecrating bishops. For lawful ordination, the Church demands that the Candidate is of due age and knowledge, is free from irregularity and excommunication, is of good life, and shows signs of a vocation, and finally that the interstices are observed, i. ,that the Candidate for the priesthood shall receive and exercise the various orders, both minor and major, which precede the priesthood
Desert - It Can describe the southern boundary of the Promised Land ( Exodus 23:31 ; Deuteronomy 11:24 ). This southern wilderness Can be divided into various parts: Shur (Exodus 15:22 ); Sin (Exodus 16:1 ); Paran (Numbers 12:16 ); Zin (Numbers 13:21 ). This entire southern desert region Can be called the wilderness of Sinai (Exodus 19:1 ) above which rises Mount Sinai. It Can designate dry land opposed to water-covered land ( Genesis 7:22 ; Exodus 14:21 )
Priesthood of the Believer - This means that the “priesthood of the believer” has become a strong Christian doctrine which developed in two directions: (1) believers Can respond directly to the personal activity of God in their lives, through the Holy Spirit and through the written word of Scripture, and do not require a human priest to mediate authoritative communication with God; (2) Christians have become a “holy priesthood” (1 Peter 2:5 ) and Can minister to one another and to the world. Any believer Can be the channel of God's Spirit and mediate the grace of God in prayer, confession, or witness in particular situations. ...
(3) We Can bring others to Christ
Boasting - If it is God or the commendable qualities of others, then boasting Can be described as proper; if it is wrongly applied to oneself, then it is improper. The hampering of Satan, however, may be a byproduct of praise since Satan Cannot accomplish his purposes where God is exalted. Paul boasts in the churches when he Can (2 Corinthians 7:14 ), and our Lord himself commends six of the seven churches to whom he speaks in the Book of Revelation. " Because it is God's gift, "no one Can boast" (Ephesians 2:9 ). Those who sin express arrogance by implying that they Can successfully violate the laws of Almighty God
Holy Orders - ,the right to actual graces so that the Divine Office and its obligations Can be rightly fulfilled
an indelible character imprinted on the soul (according to the more common opinion, each of the above orders im- prints a new character on the soul, distinct one from the other)
the bestowal of spiritual power, enabling the recipient to discharge the sacred offices, i.

Fill - ” Mâlê' Can also mean “to fill up” in an exhaustive sense: “… And the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle” ( Can be “filled up,” “satiated,” or “satisfied. ” Mâlê' Can connote “endow” (“fill one’s hand”), as in Can also signify “being armed,” or having weapons on one’s person: “But the man that shall touch them must be [5] with iron and the staff of a spear …” ( Sea - Thus, yâm Can be used of an inland salty “sea. ” It Can also be used of a fresh water “sea” such as the Sea of Galilee: “… And the border shall descend, and shall reach unto the side of the Sea of Chinnereth eastward” ( Can also refer to a side of something and not just a direction, but it is the side that faces westward: “He turned about to the west side …” ( Can also be used of the Euphrates River ( Canaanite god Yamm, “which alone spreadeth out the heavens, and treadeth upon the waves of the sea” (Job 9:8)
Salvation - Paul: "How shall we escape if we neglect so great salvation?" The salvation which Christ purchased, and the Gospel tenders to every creature, comprehends the greatest blessings which God Can bestow; a deliverance from the most dreadful evils that mankind Can suffer. It contains all that Can make the nature of man perfect or his life happy, and secures him from whatever Can render his condition miserable
Bible, Formation And Canon of - ...
Does the Bible itself give this answer? You Can see that it does when you consider, first, the fact that leading figures in the Bible, such as Moses, Jeremiah, Luke, and Paul, are described as writing things down precisely for people who are unable to talk with them directly. The process of formation Can thus be viewed both from the point of view of God's purpose and with an eye on the natural historical dynamics. One Can see how the Bible must have been formed just by looking at it. ...
How was the Canon of Scripture decided on? The word Canon comes from a Sumerian term meaning “reed,” and it came to designate the list of books which were normative and sacred. The simplest answer to this question is a practical one: the books which ended up on the Canonical lists in the end were those which proved themselves in a variety of ways to be God's Word to His people as they used them over the years. We just do not know as much about the process of Canonization as we would like. It is possible that the Old Testament Canon as we know it took shape under the influence of the scribe Ezra who rounded off the task long in process. This would explain the tenacity of the Jews ever since to preserve their Hebrew Canon. An extraneous factor which speeded the process toward developing a Canon was the work of second century reformer Marcion, who proposed dropping the Old Testament and much of the New Testament as well, forcing orthodox Christians to make up their minds on the question of the Canonical list. The die was already cast in the Muratorian Canon of 170 A. ...
Is there an interplay then of subjective and objective factors in the determination of the Canon of Scripture? Yes, we need to view it in terms of God's providence guiding and directing His people in this matter. The fact that substantially the whole church came to recognize the same books as Canonical is remarkable when we remember the agreement was not at all contrived. ...
The body of our Canon is solid and well-supported, and proves itself over again in our use of the Bible. Therefore, we Can live happily with a little uncertainty around the edges. ...
With the writer of Psalm 119:1 , we should give thanks to God for His gift of the Scriptures, in which we Can hear His voice and meet with Him. We treasure the Bible because it gives us firm anchorage in history and is the source from which we Can continually draw inspiration for renewing our faith and finding the path to follow in serving the Lord
Curtain - A piece of cloth or other material, sometimes arranged so that it Can be drawn up or sideways, hung either for decoration or to cover, conceal, or shut off something
Final Perseverance - It is perfect if baptismal innocence is not lost; but this is not necessary, since grace lost by mortal sin Can be regained
Ecclesiastes - This view Can be satisfactorily maintained, though others date it from the Captivity
Snow - This historical books of the Bible contain only two notices of snow actually falling -- (2 Samuel 23:20 ) 1 Maccabees 13:22 ; but the allusions in the poetical books are so numerous that there Can be no doubt as to its being an ordinary occurrence in the winter months
Activity: a Help to Courage - We Can picture the gallant regiment at Balaclava riding into the valley of death at a dashing gallop, but we could scarcely imagine their marching slowly up to the guns, coolly calculating all the deadly odds of the adventure
Leopard - 76); it climbs trees, and Can crawl along the ground
Damnation - The apostle shows here that many things which are lawful are not expedient; and that in using our Christian liberty the question should not simply be, Is this course I follow lawful? but also, Can I follow it without doing injury to the spiritual interests of a brother in Christ? He that "doubteth", i
Fair Linen Cloth, Fair White Linen Cloth - The white linen cloth Can be made"fair," i
Thomas - He comes prominently before us on two significant occasions: once when he said to the Lord, "We know not whither thou goest, and how Can we know the way?" The Lord replied, "I am the way, the truth, and the life
Swearing - How those who live in the habitual practice of it Can call themselves men of sense, of character, or of decency, I know not
Hermon - The Syrian bear Can sometimes be seen here; seldom, if ever, anywhere else
Lucifer - In this connexion, helçl ( helâl ) Can denote only the waning of some luminary, as it is forcibly compared with the impending fate of the then king of Babylon, whose utter destruction the prophet is engaged in foretelling, The waning luminary intended by the author may probably have been only the old moon crescent seen at dawn, just about to disappear
Necessity - That which must be and Cannot be otherwise, or the cause of that which Cannot be otherwise. It is of necessity that a thing Cannot be and not be at the same time. It is of necessity that two contradictory propositions Cannot both be true. No man Can plead necessity in excuse for crimes
Ut - (Job 1:1 ) As far as we Can gather, "the land of Uz" lay either east or southeast of Palestine, (Job 1:3 ) adjacent to the Sabaeans and the Chaldaeans, (Job 1:15,17 ) consequently north of the southern Arabians and west of the Euphrates; and, lastly, adjacent to the Edomites of Mount Seir, who at one period occupied Uz, probably as conquerors, (Lamentations 4:21 ) and whose troglodyte habits are described in (Job 30:6,7 ) From the above data we infer that the land of Uz corresponds to the Arabia Deserta of classical geography, at all events to so much of it as lies north of the 30th parallel of latitude
Rabbi - The triune God is the only "Father," "Master" (katheegeetes , guide, Romans 2:19; contrast John 16:13), "Teacher" (didaskalos Vaticanus manuscript Matthew 23:8) in the highest sense; on Him alone Can implicit trust be placed
Insignificant Subjects: Not Fit For the Pulpit - When trivial subjects are descanted upon from the pulpit, while souls are perishing for lack of knowledge, the same comparison may be used; as for instance, when a congregation is collected, and the preacher talks about the drying up of the Euphrates, or ventilates his pet theory for reconciling Moses and geology. Why Cannot these things be kept for other assemblies? What Can the man be at? Nero fiddling over burning Rome is nothing to it! Even the women knitting in front of the guillotine were not more coolly cruel. We tolerate the cricket for his incongruous chirp; but go to, thou silly trifler at the sacred desk, we Cannot frame excuse for thee, or have patience with thee
Life - John Mackintosh thus writes to his biographer, Norman Macleod:: 'May it not be said that the movement of our age is towards life? I sometimes fancy that I Can discern three epochs in the Reformed Churches, corresponding in the main to those three weighty epithets: via, yenta:, vita

Mammon - In the Sermon on the Mount Jesus said, “Ye Cannot serve God and mammon. ” He meant that no one Can be a slave of God and worldly wealth at the same time

Hiding Place - The world generally thinks of Him as being a careless, indifferent person, who Can be easily avoided and carelessly disobeyed
Ahiah - The variation occurs because the Hebrew divine name Yahweh Can be abbreviated several ways when joined with another word to form a proper name
Entail - ENTA'IL, To settle the descent of lands and tenements, by gift to a man and to certain heirs specified, so that neither the donee nor any subsequent possessor Can alienate or bequeath it as, to entail a manor to AB and to his eldest son, or to his heirs of his body begotten, or to his heirs by a particular wife
Error - Who Can understand his errors? Cleanse thou me from secret faults
Hanes - Some would place it in Lower Egypt, with Anysis in Herodotus, and Khininshi in the annals of Ashurbanipal; but there Can be little doubt that it is the Egyptian Hnçs (Heracleopolis Magna) on the west side of the Nile, just south of the Fayyum. arose, and the scanty documents of succeeding dynasties show it to have been of great importance: in the 25th and 26th Dyns

Psalm 114:2 (a) GOD refers to the entire people of Judah as a holy place in which He Can dwell and walk among them

Tumbler - ) A movable obstruction in a lock, consisting of a lever, latch, wheel, slide, or the like, which must be adjusted to a particular position by a key or other means before the bolt Can be thrown in locking or unlocking
Tell - ) To discern so as to report; to ascertain by observing; to find out; to discover; as, I Can not tell where one color ends and the other begins
Bow - " (Revelation 6:2) And there Can be no doubt, but that the bow mentioned by the dying patriarch referred to Christ
Moses - He was a type himself of the law which he was commissioned to deliver; for as he was not permitted to enter into the promised land, so he thereby represented that the law could not bring God's people into Canaan, and consequently not into heaven, of which Canaan was a type. It is Jesus alone that Can do this; "The law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ
Belteshazzar - From Daniel's history, it should seem to convey the idea, as though the name Belteshazzar was given to him in compliment, on account of his great wisdom; but there Can be but little question, that the great object was, that he might, in time, forget the Lord God of Israel, and be incorporated with the Chaldeans
Evening - ...
Second, in a late poetical use, the word Can mean “night”: “When I lie down, I say, When shall I arise, and the night be gone? And I am full of tossings to and fro unto the dawning of the day” (Job 7:4)
ai, Hai - Royal city of Canaan. Travellers say that when on the spot, the Biblical narrative of the capture of Ai Can be vividly realised
Discern - This verb Can mean “to be acquainted with,” a kind of intellectual awareness: “… Neither shall his place know him any more” (Job 7:10; cf
Amyraldism - that God desires the happiness of all men from which none are excluded by a divine decree; that none Can obtain salvation without faith in Christ; that God refuses to none the power of believing, though he does not grant to all his assistance, that they may improve this power to saving purposes; and that many perish through their own fault
Raven - The raven, when sent from the ark by Noah, could doubtless find food (though the dove could not), because it Can feed upon carrion, though it went 'to and fro' till the waters were dried up

Red Scapular of the Passion - Priests of the Mission (Lazarists) were given the faculty of blessing the scapular and investing the faithful with it; the Superior-General Can communicate the faculty of blessing and investing with this scapular to other regular or secular priests
Scapular of the Passion (Red) - Priests of the Mission (Lazarists) were given the faculty of blessing the scapular and investing the faithful with it; the Superior-General Can communicate the faculty of blessing and investing with this scapular to other regular or secular priests
Canon - As the standard to which they sought to appeal on all questions was the will of God contained in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, they came naturally to apply this term to the collective body of those writings, and to speak of them as the Canon or rule. Canon is also equivalent to a list of catalogue, in which are inserted those books which contain the inspired rule of faith. ...
In order to establish the Canon of Scripture, it must be shown that all the books are of divine authority; that they are entire and incorrupt; that it is complete without addition from any foreign source; and that the whole of the books for which divine authority Can be proved are included

Rib-Lah - ( Numbers 34:11 ) It seems hardly possible, without entirely disarranging the specification or the boundary, that the Riblah in question Can be the same with the following
Hyaena - Its teeth are so powerful that they Can crack the bones of an ox with ease
John, the First Epistle General of - There Can be no doubt that the apostle John was the author of this epistle
Philippus, Bishop of Heraclea - The various steps in the persecution Can be clearly traced, the arrest of the clergy, the seizure and destruction of the sacred writings and vessels, and finally the torture and death of the martyrs
Testimonials - The general Canons of the Church prescribe that whenthe Standing Committee of a Diocese recommends to the Bishop acandidate for Holy Orders for ordination to the Diaconate or Priesthood, that it shall present to the Bishop a certificate ortestimonial to the effect that the Candidate "hath lived piously,soberly and honestly, and hath not since his admission as acandidate for Orders, written, taught or held anything contrary tothe doctrine and discipline of the Protestant Episcopal Church. " Theaction of the Committee in recommending such person to be admitteda Candidate for Holy Orders was based on testimonials made by theClergy and laymen who knew the Candidate personally. So, also, whena Bishop is elected, testimonials of his election by the Conventionwhich elected him, and from the House of Deputies of the GeneralConvention, or from the Standing Committees of the various Dioceses,of their approbation of his election and also of his fitness for theoffice of a Bishop, must be presented to the House of Bishops beforeorder Can be taken for his consecration
General Clergy Relief Fund - As its name implies, it is aFund established for the purpose of taking care of Aged and Infirmclergy who through age or sickness have become disabled and Can nolonger fulfil their ministry. The Church, however, Cannot do this blessed work ofRelief, unless all her people contribute largely to this Fund
Inspiration - Amid the many uncertain things around him he needs words upon which his faith Can be based, and in the inspired scriptures he has them. ...
Another objection to the value of verbal inspiration is that most persons read scripture in a translation, the words of which Cannot, it is alleged, be said to be inspired. But if the translation conveys exactly the same meaning as in the original, the words Can be said to be inspired: for instance, the words 'God is love,' may surely be said to be the same as ὁ θεὸς ἀγάπη ἐστίν, or Deus caritas est, Dieu est amour, or Dio è carità, to those who Can read them. It may be that the translations from which the above are taken Cannot in all places be said to be the same as the Greek; but this only shows the great importance of each having a correct translation in his vernacular tongue. ...
Nothing Can exceed the importance of having true thoughts of the inspiration of scripture. That One Can only have been the Almighty — Jehovah — now happily revealedto the Christian as his Father as well as his God
Eden - Its local features, too, if in this situation, must have been of the most uninteresting kind; the whole of that region, as far as the sight Can reach, being a dead, monotonous, sandy, or marshy flat, without a single undulation to relieve the eye, or give any of the beauties which the imagination involuntarily paints to itself as attendant on a spot finished by the hand of God as the residence of his creatures in a state of innocence; whose minds may be supposed to be tuned to the full enjoyment of the grand and beautiful in nature. How different will be the aspect and arrangement of this favoured spot, if it be placed where only, according to the words of Moses, it Can be placed; namely, at the heads or fountains of the rivers described, instead of their mouths. Wells, in order to support his hypothesis of the situation of Eden on the lower parts of the Euphrates and Tigris, after giving these rivers a distribution which has now no existence, makes the Pison and Gihon to be parts of the Tigris and Euphrates themselves: an arrangement at perfect disagreement with the particular description of Moses; beside, that the Gihon thus called, instead of compassing the whole land of Cush, Can only be said to skirt an extreme corner of it. But what reliance Can be placed on the ever shifting channels of a river flowing through an alluvial soil, and over a perfect level divertible at the pleasure of the people inhabiting its banks? Or, what theory Can be founded on their distribution, which will not be as unstable as the streams them selves? This very channel, so essential to the hypothesis which places Eden in this situation, was annihilated by the Orcheni, a neighbouring people; who directed the stream to water their own land, and thus gave it a shorter course into the Tigris, which it has ever since preserved. It is true, that the heads of the four rivers, above described, Cannot now be found sufficiently near, to recognize thence the exact situation of paradise; but they all arise from the same mountainous region; and the springs of the Euphrates and Tigris, as already mentioned, are even now nearly interwoven
Everlasting Punishment - Though one Can find expressions of individual guilt, punishment and forgiveness in the Psalms, and though one Can find the language of universal judgment in the prophets—that is, that unfaithful Israel and all the nations of the world will be historically punished—it is not until after the Old Testament that the notions of “eternal punishment” or “everlasting judgment” are developed
God - ...
(c) The moral argument, called also the anthropological argument, based on the moral consciousness and the history of mankind, which exhibits a moral order and purpose which Can only be explained on the supposition of the existence of God. , those which Can be imparted in degree to his creatures: goodness, holiness, wisdom, etc. ; and incommunicable, which Cannot be so imparted: independence, immutability, immensity, and eternity
Baptism For the Dead - If it Can be proved (as some think it Can) that this practice was as early as the days of the apostle Paul, it might probably form a solution of those remarkable words in 1 Corinthians 15:29 : "If the dead rise not at all, what shall they do who are baptized for the dead?" The allusion of the apostle to this practice, however, is rejected by some, and especially by Fr
Merodach Baladan - Read in the Assyrian inscriptions Mardoc Erapad, or Empalin Ptolemy's Canon, Merodach Baldan in Polyhistor (Eusebius, Chron. Can. Baladan was his ancestor; but his father according to the inscriptions was Yagin or Jugaeus in Ptolemy's Canon. Can
Everlasting Punishment - Though one Can find expressions of individual guilt, punishment and forgiveness in the Psalms, and though one Can find the language of universal judgment in the prophets—that is, that unfaithful Israel and all the nations of the world will be historically punished—it is not until after the Old Testament that the notions of “eternal punishment” or “everlasting judgment” are developed
Casuistry - The doctrine and science of conscience and its cases, with the rules and principles of resolving the same; drawn partly from natural reason or equity, and partly from the authority of Scripture, the Canon law, councils, fathers, &c. One who is really anxious to do his duty must be very weak, it said, if he Can imagine that he has much occasion for them; and with regard to one who is negligent of it, the style of those writings is not such as is likely to awaken him to more attention. ...
On the other hand, I think it may be observed, that, though these remarks may apply to some, they Cannot apply to all books of casuistry. It must be acknowledged that nice distinctions, metaphysical reasonings, and abstruse terms, Cannot be of much service to the generality, because there are so few who Can enter into them; yet, when we consider how much light is thrown upon a subject by the force of good reasoning, by viewing a case in all its bearings, by properly considering all the objections that may be made to it, and by examining it in every point of view; if we consider also how little some men are accustomed to think, and yet at the same time possess that tenderness of conscience which makes them fearful of doing wrong; we must conclude that such works as these, when properly executed, may certainly be of considerable advantage
Bible: How to Hear - One is remarkable for its imposing plumage, which shows in the sunbeams like the dust of gems; and as you watch its jaunty gyrations over the fields, and its minuet dance from flower to flower, you Cannot help admiring its graceful activity, for it is plainly getting over a great deal of ground. His fluttering neighbor darts down here and there, and sips elegantly wherever he Can find drop of ready nectar; but this dingy plodder makes a point of alighting everywhere, and wherever he alights he either finds honey or makes it. ...
Reader, to which do you belong?–the butterflies or bees? Do you search the Scriptures, or do you only skim them? Do you dwell on a passage till you bring out some meaning, or till you Can carry away some memorable truth or immediate lesson? or do you flit along on heedless wing, only on the look-out for novelty, and too frivolous to explore or ponder the Scriptures? Does the Word of God dwell in you so richly, that in the vigils of a restless night, or in the bookless solitude of a sick room, or in the winter of old age or exclusion from ordinances, its treasured truths would perpetuate summer round you, and give you meat to eat which the world knows not of?–James Hamilton, D
Confusion of Tongues - It is, however, but of little consequence to know precisely how this was effected, as the Scriptures are silent as to the manner of it; and after all that Can be said, it is but conjecture still. It teaches us God's sovereignty and power, by which he Can easily blast the greatest attempts of men to aggrandize themselves, Genesis 11:1-32
Divorce - of which impediments the Canon law allows no less than 14. The law of this country, in conformity to our Saviour's injunction, confines the dissolution of the marriage contract to the single case of adultery in the wife; and a divorce even in that case Can only be brought about by an act of parliament, founded upon a previous sentiment in the spiritual court, and a verdict against the adulterer at common law; which proceedings taken together, compose as complete an investigation of the complaint as a cause Can receive

John 14:6 (a) Here we see a beautiful description of the Person of the Lord JESUS CHRIST, the only one who Can bring us to the Father. He only Can make us fit for Heaven, He only has the right and the power to take us to GOD
Fowl - For (1) they Cannot anticipate and influence the future as man Can by the exercise of his reason or the labour of his hands; (2) God is only their Creator, but He is man’s Father, and will not forget His child. Though the ‘fowls’ Cannot foresee, or work, or trust, they have no care. How foolish of man, who Can do all these things, to fall so far beneath the ‘fowls,’ and worry over food and drink, when his first duty is to seek the kingdom of God and His righteousness!...

Mercy of God - It is free, as nothing out of himself Can be the cause of it; for then there would be a cause prior to him, the cause of himself. It is immutable; nothing Can change it; it is invariably the same, Malachi 3:6
Emmanuel - Who, indeed, Can undertake to say? Nevertheless, if what we propose be wholly scriptural, and supported by Scripture authority, we Can never err. The infinite dignity of his person gives an infinite merit to his work, and Cannot fail, both in his blood and righteousness, to justify his people, and render them truly acceptable in the sight of God their Father, and fully secure to them the everlasting blessedness and glory of heaven
Seed Growing Secretly, Parable of the - The words sleep, rise, and he knoweth not Can refer only to the human ministers of the Gospel to whose efforts the growth of the Gospel is not to be ascribed, only God giveth the increase. The same parable Can be applied to the Kingdom of God in each Christian soul in particular

Joy - Sin having come in, and man being thus, alas, alienated from God, his idea of joy is to be as happy as he Can make himself without God and away from Him. ) But disappointment and bitterness here and eternal sorrow hereafter alone Can result from such a course as that
Lie - People Can act lies as well as speak them (Genesis 27:8-23; Jeremiah 23:32; Acts 5:1-4; Ephesians 4:25; 1 John 2:4; 1 John 4:20). The Spirit within them is the Spirit of truth, and he Can enable them to overcome the sinful tendencies of the old nature (John 14:17; Galatians 5:16; Galatians 5:24-25; 1 John 2:21)
Conscience - ...
The conscience also needs instruction, because it Can only make judgments according to the knowledge it possesses (Romans 2:14-15; 1 Corinthians 8:7; 1 Corinthians 4:4-5). When people ignore conscience, it Can easily become defiled, hardened or dead (1 Timothy 4:2; Titus 1:15)
Free Will - —It is not easy to give a definition of Free Will that is not tautological,—indeed, strictly speaking, it Cannot be defined. We Cannot, however, think of God as acting other than freely, if we are to accept Him as a living God at all. We Can conceive that He might have made the material universe other than He has made it, but we Cannot conceive Him as acting otherwise than in love and holiness and justice. No doubt He also said (John 6:44), ‘No man Can come unto me except the Father which hath sent me draw him. No doubt those who regard liberty as incompatible with predestination may argue that predestination is the plain doctrine of Scripture, but the conclusion that because predestination is the doctrine of Scripture man Cannot be free is their own, and is not taught in Scripture. We all at times feel the strange inevitableness of things, but fatalism Cannot commend itself to us as a reasoned philosophy. ...
(b) Predestinarianism in some form or other we Can hardly avoid accepting, if we believe in an ordered universe; and to resolve predestination, in so far as rational and moral beings are concerned, into simple foreknowledge, does not materially, or at least very materially, help us. And if an action is predestinated, or even Divinely foreseen as being sure to occur, how Can it be said that a man does it freely? Freedom seems incompatible with foreordination,—even with Divine foreknowledge. Yet no reasoning, however logical it may appear, Can I ever make us lose the sense of freedom. To suppose that we Can act without motive of some kind would be to suppose what is contrary to all experience, for we are always more or less conscious of being influenced by motives, but the action of motives is no mere mechanical action. And even the enslaved will Can be made free by Divine grace. The Son Can make us free so that we shall be free indeed (John 8:36). This freedom comes from union with Christ, for apart from Him we Can do nothing (John 15:5)
Assurance - ...
We must have evidence before we Can have genuine assurance. "We do not affirm, " says Saurin, "that Christians of whose sincerity there may be some doubt have a right to assurance; that backsliders, as such, ought to persuade themselves that they shall be saved; nor do we say that Christians who have arrived to the highest degree of holiness, Can be persuaded of the certainty of their salvation in every period of their lives; nor, if left to their own efforts Can they enjoy it; but believers, supported by the Divine aid, who walk in all good conscience before him, these only have ground to expect this privilege. " Some divines have maintained that assurance is included in the very essence of faith, so that a man Cannot have faith without assurance; but we must distinguish between assurance and justifying faith. When men have been taught that faith consists in believing that Christ died for them, and been assured that, if they Can only believe so, all is well; and that then they are immediately pardoned and justified, the consequence has been, that the bold and self- conceited have soon wrought themselves up to such a persuasion, without any ground for it, to their own deception; whilst the dejected, humble, and poor in spirit, not being able to work themselves to such a pitch of confidence, have concluded that they have not the faith of God's elect, and must inevitably be lost
Pass Over - ” This basic meaning Can be used of “going over or through” a particular location to get to the other side, as when Jacob “crossed over” the Euphrates to escape Laban ( Can also merely mean “to go as far as”—Amos tells his audience not to “cross over” to Beersheba (Amos 5:5). Abram “passed through” Canaan as far as Mamre; he did not go out of the land (cf. The word Can also be used of “passing by” something; Abraham begged the three men not “to pass by” him but to stop and refresh themselves ( Can also mean “to pass away,” to cease to be, as in Strength - The word is used of physical “strength” in the sense of power that Can be exerted: “If the iron be blunt, and he do not whet the edge, then must he put to more strength …” ( Can also represent the domestic skills of a woman—Ruth is described as a woman of ability and, therefore, either potentially or actually a good wife (Ruth 3:11; Can also refer to the army as troops in the sense of a combination of a lot of individuals. Under such an idea the word Can represent the members of an army distributed to perform certain functions
Prochorus, a Deacon - Though the writer makes some use of the Gnostic Acts, he Can hardly have known them in their original text. The author Can have had no local interest in its composition. ...
The date of composition Cannot be later than the middle of 5th cent. With this, moreover; agrees the fact that the author Can assume a universal diffusion of Christianity in Ephesus and the Aegean Archipelago. Of his personal circumstances we Can only say that he certainly was not a monk; perhaps he was a married cleric, possibly a layman
Baptism, Christian - The mode of baptism Can in no way be determined from the Greek word rendered "baptize. Nothing therefore as to the mode of baptism Can be concluded from the mere word used. In the New Testament there Cannot be found a single well-authenticated instance of the occurrence of the word where it necessarily means immersion. ...
The gospel and its ordinances are designed for the whole world, and it Cannot be supposed that a form for the administration of baptism would have been prescribed which would in any place (as in a tropical country or in polar regions) or under any circumstances be inapplicable or injurious or impossible. If children were members of the church under the old dispensation, which they undoubtedly were, then they are members of the church now by the same right, unless it Can be shown that they have been expressly excluded. There is no command or statement of any kind, that Can be interpreted as giving any countenance to such an idea, anywhere to be found in the New Testament. They Cannot believe yet, and so they Cannot come in. You may be unable as yet to deal with them about either sin or salvation, but my gracious power Can find its way into their hearts even now. I Can impart to them pardon and a new life. From Adam they have inherited sin and death; and I Can so unite them to myself that in me they shall be heirs of righteousness and life
Person, Personhood - Humans Can only have a proper understanding of themselves as they have a proper understanding of God. It Can be used of excessive desires (gluttony Proverbs 23:2 ) and of unfulfilled desires (barrenness 1 Samuel 1:15 ). That these uses refer to a body Can be seen in the treatment that basar [8] received: anointed, washed, clothed, cut, pained, and in particular in its capacity to thirst, tremble, faint, and grow weary. These latter qualities show that basar [8] Can also indicate the whole person. While it Can designate the physical entity, it is often used as a comprehensive term for the whole person. The Hebrew word so rendered is ruah [ Psalm 34:18 ), necessitating the Lord to save, or it Can be taken back, causing the person to return to dust (1618452266_8 ; Psalm 104:29 ). ...
This term is also used to indicate the dominant impulse or disposition of a person so that the text Can speak of bitterness of spirit (Genesis 26:35 ), spirit of jealousy (Numbers 5:14,30 ), broken spirit (Exodus 6:9 ), right spirit (Psalm 51:10 ), and a "generous spirit" (Psalm 51:12 ). "...
Spirit Can also refer to the life center of the body. ...
First, should the person be viewed as a unity or a duality? Scriptural evidence Can be advanced for both of these positions. Again scriptural evidence Can be presented for both realities
Grief And Mourning - From this and other statements we Can learn ways in which we Can minister to grief-stricken people:...
1) Realize the gift of presence. Just calling and being there Can be of value
Command, Commandment - ...
God's commandments Can be kept (Deuteronomy 30:11-14 ). Prosperity Can cause one to forget them (Deuteronomy 8:11-14 ), and adversity tests willingness to obey them (Deuteronomy 8:2 ; Judges 3:4 ; cf. Christian teaching viewed ethically Can sometimes be described as "the sacred commandments" or "the command given by our Lord" (2 Peter 2:21 ; 3:2 ) and Christians are "those who obey God's commandments" (Revelation 12:17 ; 14:12 ), especially the command of faith in Christ and love of brother (John 13:34 ; 1 John 2:7-8 ; 3:23 ; 4:21 ; 2 John 4-6 )
Pardon - There is nothing that man has, or Can do, by which pardon Can be procured: wealth Cannot buy pardon, Proverbs 11:1-31 ; Proverbs 12:1-28 ; Proverbs 13:1-25 ; Proverbs 14:1-35 ; Proverbs 15:1-33 ; Proverbs 16:1-33 ; Proverbs 17:1-28 ; Proverbs 18:1-24 ; Proverbs 19:1-29 ; Proverbs 20:1-30 ; Proverbs 21:1-31 ; Proverbs 22:1-29 ; Proverbs 23:1-35 ; Proverbs 24:1-34 ; Proverbs 25:1-28 ; Proverbs 26:1-28 ; Proverbs 27:1-27 ; Proverbs 28:1-28 ; Proverbs 29:1-27 ; Proverbs 30:1-33 ; Proverbs 31:1-4 ; human works or righteousness Cannot merit it, Romans 11:6 ; nor Can water baptism wash away sin. An innocent person, when falsely accused and acquitted, is justified, but not pardoned; and a criminal may be pardoned, though he Cannot be justified or declared innocent. " After all, however, though these two may be distinguished, yet they Cannot be separated; and, in reality, one is not prior to the other; for he that is pardoned by the death of Christ, is at the same time justified by his life, Romans 5:10
Name - ...
2 Corinthians 5:3 (a) Since we Cannot take any garments with us when we die, we must have His robe of righteousness, or else we would be in the presence of GOD without a garment. We Cannot come into GOD's presence unclothed. He tells us very clearly that nothing Can be hidden from GOD. He Can see through any covering, any false religion, any false teachings, any excuses that the sinner may use to cover his sins, iniquities, trespasses and transgressions. The name indicates the work which the person Can do, and is really a title
Righteousness - No comparative statement Can, in the least, alter the case. No man, not a single man of the whole race of men sprung from Adam, Can be an exception to this universal decree of God. %And by the deeds of the law Can no flesh be justified before God. If there be not in me a total renunciation of every thing the mistaken calculation of men calls righteousness, yea, more than this, if there be not a full and unreserved confession of universal sin and unworthiness in me, I Cannot be wholly looking for acceptance to, and living wholly upon, the Lord Jesus Christ as the Lord my Righteousness
Arise - It may denote any movement to an erect position, such as getting up out of a bed (Genesis 19:33), or it Can be used as the opposite of sitting or kneeling, as when Abraham "stood up from before his dead" ( Genesis 23:3). It Can also refer to the result of arising, as when Joseph saw his sheaf arise and remain erect (Genesis 37:7). The same construction Can mean "to deed over," as when Ephron's field was deeded over (KJV, "made sure"— Genesis 23:17)
Love to God - Nor Can these two ideas, I think, be well separated; for, however some may argue that genuine love to God should arise only from a sense of his amiableness, yet I think it will be difficult to conceive how it Can exist, abstracted from the idea of his relative goodness. "But the accidental excesses of this holy sentiment Can be no just argument against its general excellence and utility
Beloved - How the divine persons love each other in the infinity and eternity of their nature, none but themselves in their eternal nature Can have any conceptions concerning. But the love of God, yea, all the persons of the GODHEAD to the person of Christ, as God-man Mediator; this is a subject concerning which we find somewhat for the mind to lean upon; and, under divine teaching, Can make discovery sufficient to create a joy from it, "unspeakable and full of glory. He it is, indeed, that gives this loveliness to his church, for there is nothing in the church, or in the acts of the church, which Can be lovely, but on the Lord's account, and as beheld and accepted in him
Morning - ...
Bôqer Can represent the time just before the rising of the sun. ...
Bôqer Can mean “daybreak” or “dawn. ...
Bôqer Can mean “morrow” or “next day
Witness - First, in the area of civil affairs the word Can mean someone who is present at a legal transaction and Can confirm it if necessary. An object or animal(s) Can signify the truthfulness of an act or agreement
Right Hand - ” In this use the word Can specify the location of someone or something: “But the children of Israel walked upon dry land in the midst of the sea; and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left” ( Can be used of bodily parts other than the right hand. ” Têymân Can mean “south” or “southern quarter” as in But - Who Can it be, but perjured Lycon? ...
That is, removed, separated, excepted. ...
Lycon being separated, or excepted, who Can it be? ...
And but infirmity, ...
Which waits upon worn times, hath something seized ...
His wish'd ability, he had himself ...
The lands and waters measured. ...
Who Can it be,Lycon being excepted? ...
And but my noble Moor is true of mind, it were enough to put him to thinking. ...
It Cannot be but nature hath some director, of infinite power, to guide her in all her ways
Kingdom - It Can neither be promoted nor defended by worldly power, influence, or carnal weapons, but by bearing witness unto the truth, or by the preaching of the Gospel with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven. Its real subjects are only those who are of the truth, and hear Christ's voice; for none Can enter it but such as are born from above, John 3:3-5 ; nor Can any be visible subjects of it, but such as appear to be regenerated, by a credible profession of faith and obedience
Proverbs, Book of - The Hebrew word for proverb (mashal ), found in the book's title, Can refer to a variety of literary forms beside the proverb: prophetic “discourse” (Numbers 23:7 ,Numbers 23:7,23:18 ), “allegory” (Ezekiel 17:2 ; Ezekiel 24:3 ), “taunt song” (Micah 2:4 ). They Can also make clear value judgments (Proverbs 10:17 ; Proverbs 14:31 ; Romans 1:18-230 ; Proverbs 19:17 ). ...
One Cannot just use any proverb on any topic, for proverbs Can be misused: “Like a lame man's legs, which hang useless, is a proverb in the mouth of fools” (Proverbs 26:7 ; compare Proverbs 26:9 ). Wives Can be a gift from the Lord ( Proverbs 18:22 ), but sometimes singleness seems better (Proverbs 21:9 ,Proverbs 21:9,21:19 ). Silence Can be a sign of wisdom (Proverbs 17:27 ) or a cover-up (Proverbs 17:28 ). A “friend” (Hebrew, rea' ) Can be trusted (Proverbs 17:17 ), but not always (Proverbs 17:18 ; “neighbor” = rea' )!...
Wealth Can be a sign of God's blessing (Proverbs 3:9-10 ), but some saints suffer (Proverbs 3:11-12 ). Wealth Can result from wickedness (Proverbs 13:23 ; Proverbs 17:23 ; Proverbs 28:11 ; compare Proverbs 26:12 )
Esther - Probably the persons who Can understand and appreciate the attitudes of Esther are those who have lived through persecution and occupation by others. Humble faithfulness Can lead to large responsibilities (Esther 1:1-2:18 ). Family relationships and respect Cannot be enforced by political means (Esther 1:16-22 ). Humble obedience Can lead to opportunities to serve (Esther 2:2-18 ). Faithfulness to one's people Can be expressed through service to a foreign ruler (Esther 2:19-3:15 ). Work for God's people Can bring new opportunities for service and honor (Esther 10:1-3 )
Mouth - ...
Second, this word Can be used in an impersonal, nonpersonified sense of an “opening”: “And he looked, and behold a well in the field, and, lo, there were three flocks of sheep lying by it; for out of that well they watered the flocks: and a great stone was upon the well’s mouth” ( Can mean not only an opening which is closed in on all sides but a city gate, an opening opened at the top: “… at the gates, at the entry of the city, at the coming in at the doors” ( Can mean “from end to end”: “And they came into the house of Baal; and the house of Baal was full from one end to another” (2 Kings 10:21). ...
This word Can also stand for “utterance” or “order”: “Thou shalt be over my house, and according unto thy word shall all my people be ruled …” ( Can be read literally, “according to the fullness of the seventy years of Babylon
Moral Obligation - The second is, that when a fitness or unfitness is proved, it is no more than the discovery of a natural essential difference or congruity, which alone Cannot constitute a moral obligation to choose what is fit, and to reject what is unfit. A second step is necessary before we Can reach this conclusion. If any thing else were understood by it, then the moral sense must be the same with conscience, which we know to vary with the judgment, and Cannot therefore be the basis of moral obligation. For, since the question respects the duty of a created being with reference to his Creator, nothing Can be more conclusive than that the Creator has an absolute right to the obedience of his creatures; and that the creature is in duty obliged to obey him from whom it not only has received being, but by whom that being is constantly sustained. It has, indeed, been said, that even if it be admitted, that I am obliged to obey the will of God, the question is still open, "Why am I obliged to obey his will?" and that this brings us round to the former answer; because he Can only will what is upon the whole best for his creatures. If a creature Can have no existence, nor any power or faculty independently of God, it Can have no right to employ its faculties independently of him; and if it have no right to employ its faculties in an independent manner, the right to rule its conduct must rest with the Creator alone; and from this results the obligation of absolute and universal obedience
Government - Governments exist for the benefit of the people, and should want to control affairs so that citizens Can live peacefully and contentedly (1 Timothy 2:1-2). In other countries the citizens themselves decide who governs them, and they Can openly try to influence government decisions. In such countries Christians Can not only pray for God’s will to be done on earth, but they Can actively work for those values of justice, freedom, morality, honesty and compassion that God desires for human society (Matthew 6:10). ...
Limitations of government...
Although governments Can help society by their efforts to promote good and oppose evil, the basic problems of human sin Cannot be overcome merely through government action. But they Cannot ignore problems in a society of which they are part (Amos 6:4-6). ...
Yet if Christians, even with the help of God’s indwelling Spirit, Cannot live perfectly according to God’s standards, non-Christians have much less chance. While Christians may seek the highest standards for themselves and may try to persuade others to accept those standards, they Cannot expect the government to enforce those standards by law (e
Individual - Only the individual, or groups of individuals Can actually exist, universals as such being entities of the mind
Diocesan Court - It consists of: ...
a vicar-general with general vicarious power in spiritual and temporal matters, who is one tribunal with his bishop and Can be removed from office at will;
an official, who corresponds to a chief justice in the civilcourts, having ordinary power;
a chancellor, to keep the records a promoter of justice, like a district attorney;
a defender of the bond of Marriage and Sacred Orders, whose duty it is to defend the existence of a true marriage or valid Orders when either is attacked;
synodal judges, who may be called associate justices and who are generally named in the diocesan synod;
examiners, who preside at examinations of the clergy and intervene in certain cases of removal of parish priests;

Chameleon - In reality it lives on small insects, catching them by means of its long sticky tongue, which it Can protrude and withdraw with extraordinary quickness
Nephilim - But we Can hardly be wrong in supposing that it bears witness to a current belief (to which there are many heathen parallels) in a race of heroes or demigods, produced by the union of divine beings (‘sons of God’) with mortal women. The other notice is Numbers 13:33 , where the name is applied to men of gigaotic stature seen by the spies among the natives of Canaan
Terebinth - ’ Strong reasons, however, Can be urged for rendering by ‘terebinth’ in a great many instances where EV Fishing Net, Parable of the - The fishers' net catches all kinds of fish, good and worthless, and it is only when the fishing is over, the net having been pulled to the shore, that the selection Can take place. It thus forewarns the disciples against scandal resulting from the presence of evil in the Kingdom, and reminds them that the establishment of the Kingdom of God will not result in the disappearance of evil from the world. The disciples, therefore, must not expect a sudden, miraculous transformation of the world, which would make it resemble heaven, and must not be scandalized when persecution comes, as it is bound to, from the coexistence of the Kingdom and of evil
Contrite - They Can thus come to God in prayer, knowing what God wants is a broken spirit and a contrite heart (Psalm 51:17 )
Immortality - IMMORTAL, IMMORTALITY...

Thummim - What the "Urim and Thummim" were Cannot be determined with any certainty. The method by which this was done Can be only a matter of mere conjecture
Such as - , Mark 4:20 ; hopoios, "of what sort," preceded by toioutos, "of such a sort," Acts 26:29 ; (3) deina, Matthew 26:18 , denotes "such a one" (whom one Cannot, or will not, name). , "ye Can"), perhaps signifying not outward things such as lustrations, but "what things ye have within your cups and platters," i
Ethan - Thus it is probable that Jeduthun is another form of Ethan, and that "Ethan the Ezrahite" is the same as "Ethan the singer," though we Can only guess as to why he is differently designated in different places

Hypocrisy: Easy But Dangerous - One must dig deep in dark mines for gold and silver; the precious treasure must be brought from far across the seas; it must be melted down, it must pass through many assays, and the dies must be worked with ponderous engines before the coin Can be produced; all this to the sluggish many is a heavy disadvantage
Thunder (2) - ‘It seems probable that the “voice out of heaven” (John 12:28-29) was a thunder-peal, as indeed most of those present thought, and that its significance was recognized and interpreted by Jesus alone’ (Hasting's Dictionary of the Bible iv. On the available data no sure opinion Can be formed as to why it was applied to them
Destitution: of London - In excavating this vas population you have as it were laid bare the head of a huge winged bull, until you Can observe that it has a human countenance and will well repay you for your toils
Eternity - They do not bear the least imaginable proportion to it; for these will come to an end, as certainly as a day; but eternity will never, never, never, come to an end! It is a line without end! It is an ocean without a shore! Alas! what shall I say of it! it is an infinite, unknown something, that neither human thought Can grasp, nor human language describe!"

Paradise - But concerning the exact place, we must necessarily be very uncertain, if, indeed, it Can be thought at all to exist at present, considering the many changes which have taken place on the surface of the earth since the creation
Red Sea - In Hebrews 11:29 it is referred to as a striking instance of what faith Can do. Duncan
Bethsaida - However, there is no contemporary mention of two Bethsaidas, and the Mark 6:1 text Can just as easily refer to a short trip to the known city of Bethsaida-Julias as to an unknown town
Brass - In some of the references, such as those to mining ( Deuteronomy 8:9 ‘out of whose hills thou mayest dig brass’) and smelting ( Job 28:2 ‘Iron is taken out of the earth, and brass is molten out of the stone’), it is clear that only copper Can be meant, and RVm Stars - The Lord asked Job, “Can you bind the chains of Pleiades, or loose the cords of Orion?” (Job 38:31 NAS). It is one of many miracles that attest to the power of our God and is similar to the pillar of fire used to demonstrate God's presence and might to the children of Israel as they made their way to the land of Canaan

Ethiopians - Acts 8:27, where Candace, queen of (the) Ethiopians, and her εὐνοῦχος δυνάστης are mentioned in connexion with Philip the Deacon (see articles Candace, Ethiopian Eunuch, and Philip).

Law of Non-Contradiction - The Law of non-contradiction is the law that something Cannot be both true and not true at the same time when dealing with the same context. For example, the chair in my living room, right now, Cannot be made of wood and not made of wood at the same time. In the law of non-contradiction, where we have a set of statements about a subject, we Cannot have any of the statements in that set negate the truth of any other statement in that same set. The statements Can be harmonized by stating: Judas hung himself and then his body fell down and his bowels spilled out
Baal - ’ Attempts have been made to show that this was the original name of the Sun-god, or that it represents the Supreme Being worshipped by the Canaanites. Neither of these contentions Can be proved; indeed it is evident that the Baal of one place differed from that of another

Keys - The Romanists say that the pope has the power of the keys, and Can open and shut paradise as he pleases; grounding their opinion on that expression of Jesus Christ to Peter...

Ewing, Thomas - During the Civil War he unreservedly supported the government and sent to Lincoln the telegram "There Can be no contraband of war between neutral points," which secured the freeing of the English envoys Mason and Slidell, and averted war between England and the United States
Hunting - It seems to be no unfair inference, that he who Can take pleasure in tearing poor timid hares to pieces by dogs, would not melt into tears in beholding men torn to pieces by horses, Nimrod is the first hunter we read of in history, and of him it is said to a proverb, that he was a mighty hunter before the Lord
Ant - Another point worthy of note is that they have 'no guide, overseer, or ruler,' and yet no one Can watch this insect without seeing that they are 'exceeding wise:' each one finds what his particular work is, and diligently does it — a profitable lesson for the saints of God to learn
Half - ” Second, chêtsı̂y Can mean “middle,” as it does in its first biblical appearance: “And it came to pass, that at midnight [1] the Lord smote all the first-born in the land of Egypt …” ( Wonder - ...
Second, the word Can represent a “sign” from God or a token of a future event: “This is the sign which the Lord hath spoken: Behold, the altar shall be rent, and the ashes that are upon it shall be poured out” (1 Kings 13:3)
Beetle - For nothing Can be supposed more natural than to imagine a nation, addicted to polytheism, as the Egyptians were, in a country frequently suffering great mischief and scarcity from swarms of devouring insects, should, from a strange sense and fear of evil to come, (the common principle of superstition and idolatry,) give sacred worship to the visible authors of these their sufferings, in hopes to render them more propitious for the future
Limit - ) A determinate quantity, to which a variable one continually approaches, and may differ from it by less than any given difference, but to which, under the law of variation, the variable Can never become exactly equivalent
Amen - Revelation 3:14, applied to him from whose lips every syllable is assured truth; so that, though heaven and earth should pass, nothing that he has spoken Can remain unaccomplished
Ratio - One line may be compared with another line, but a line Cannot be compared with a superficies, and hence between a line and a superficies there Can be no ratio
Religion, Virtue of - , in so far as man, a finite, created being, Can render worship to the infinitely perfect and eternal Creator

Rain - Nothing Can more expressively represent spiritual blessings than copious showers of rain after this trying season is past, Deuteronomy 32:2 Job 29:23 Isaiah 44:3 Hosea 10:12
Sea, Apostleship of the - Working in cooperation with the twelve sailor centers which existed in 1920, the Apostleship began in that year a crusade which has resulted in the establishing of more tan 100 enrolling centers where sailors Can add their names to the seafarers of all nations. Apostleship publicity, broadcast in many languages to the Catholic press throughout the world, has results in the formation of national section in Holland and Spain, regional headquarters in Australia, Canada, India, Italy, New Zealand, and South America
Zachari'as - Many of the Greek fathers have maintained that the father of John the Baptist is the person to whom our Lord alludes but there Can be little or no doubt that the allusion is to Zechariah, the son of Jehoiada, (2 Chronicles 24:20,21 ) and he may have been called "the son" of Barachias from his grandfather. ) He is mentioned as being the martyr last recorded in the Hebrew Scriptures (as Abel was the first) -d Chronicles being the last book in their Canon
Frankincense, - There Can be little doubt that the tree which produces the Indian frankincense is the Boswellia serrata of Roxburgh, or Boswellia thurifera of Colebrooke, and bears some resemblance when young to the mountain ash
Beard - The custom was and is to shave or pluck it and the hair out in mourning, (Ezra 9:3 ; Isaiah 15:2 ; 50:6 ; Jeremiah 41:5 ; 48:37 ) Baruch 6:31 ; to neglect it in seasons of permanent affliction, (2 Samuel 19:24 ) and to regard any insult to it as the last outrage which enmity Can inflict

Example - " The life of Jesus Christ forms the most beautiful example the Christian Can imitate. That the effects of their example may be incalculable on society to the end of time, and perhaps in eternity; for who Can tell what may be the consequence of one sin, on a family, a nation, or posterity?...
5
Elder - On the other side it is said, that from the above-mentioned passages, nothing Can be collected with certainty to establish this opinion; neither Can it be inferred from any other passage that churches should be furnished with such officers, though perhaps prudence, in some circumstances, may make them expedient
Lukewarmness - In respect to religion, hardly any thing Can be more culpable than this spirit. ...
If there be a God possessed of unspeakable rectitude in his own nature, and unbounded goodness towards his creatures, what Can be more inconsistent and unbecoming than to be frigid and indifferent in our devotions to him? Atheism, in some respects, Cannot be worse than lukewarmness. The Atheist disbelieves the existence of a God, and therefore Cannot worship him at all; the lukewarm owns the existence, sovereignty, and goodness of the Supreme Being, but denies him that fervour of affection, that devotedness of heart, and activity of service, which the excellency of his nature demands, and the authority of his word requires
Abstinence, Law of - They and parish priests Can for just reasons dispense from abstinence persons or families subject to them, and also travelers who happen to be within their territories. An ordinary Can dispense the entire diocese or a particular locality for reasons of public health. ...
Canada: Fridays, except those on which may occur the feasts of Circumcision, Epiphany, All Saints, Immaculate Conception, and Christmas; ember-days; those vigils which are also fast days; Wednesdays of Lent; and Holy Saturday until noon
Measure - ...
Mâdad Can express the idea of extending, stretching: “And he stretched himself upon the child three times …” (1 Kings 17:21). ” The word Can also refer to the duration of one’s life: “Lord, make me to know [3] mine end, and the measure of my days [4] …” ( Incest - In order to preserve chastity in families, and between persons of different sexes, brought up and living together in a state of unreserved intimacy, it is necessary, by every method possible, to inculcate an abhorrence of incestuous conjunctions; which abhorrence Can only be upholden by the absolute reprobation of all commerce of the sexes between near relations. Restrictions which extend to remoter degrees of kindred than what this reason makes it necessary to prohibit from intermarriage, are founded in the authority of the positive law which ordains them, and Can only be justified by their tendency to diffuse wealth, to connect families, or to promote some political advantage
Resurrection of the Dead - Hence the refutation of this unscriptural assumption was a complete overthrow of the ground on which their denial of a future resurrection rested; for if the soul Can survive the body, it is plain that God Can give it another body
Omniscience - —There are such great differences in the mental grasp of different persons, that no one Can prove that all knowledge may not have been open to the human mind of Christ. On the other hand, no one Can assert that because of His Divine nature in union with His human nature He must have possessed and exercised such powers. Apart from assurance of what God has done, we Cannot say what He must do
Generation - A period of time and its significant events comprising the lifespan of a person but also used to talk of a more indefinite timespan. ” The more significant of these is toledoth , derived from the Hebrew verb, “to bear children. It Can have extended uses in metaphorical language. This should establish wisdom on which a present generation Can draw (Deuteronomy 32:7 ). A generation also represents those who Can gather for worship, so that the gathered worship community forms a generation (Psalm 14:5 ; Psalm 24:6 ; Psalm 73:15 ). The message of the New Testament Can be summarized: “To him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever” (Ephesians 3:21 NRSV)
Soul - More significant here is that nepes [ Numbers 5:2 ; 6:11 ). "...
Nepes [ Isaiah 5:14 ; Habakkuk 2:5 ), noting that it Can be parched and dry (Numbers 11:6 ; Jeremiah 31:12,25 ), discerning (Proverbs 16:23 ), hungry (Numbers 21:5 ), and breathing (Jeremiah 2:24 ). It Can be used of excessive desires (gluttony Proverbs 23:2 ) and of unfulfilled desires (barrenness 1 Samuel 1:15 ). ...
Psyche , as its Old Testament counterpart, Can indicate the person (Acts 2:41 ; 27:37 ). ...
Psyche Can express emotions such as grief ( Matthew 26:38 , ; Mark 14:34 ), anguish (John 12:27 ), exultation (Luke 1:46 ), and pleasure (Matthew 12:18 ). Such a person is "natural/unspiritual" and Cannot receive the gifts of God's Spirit because they make no sense to him (1 Corinthians 2:14-15 )
Glorify - We meet with this word very often in Scripture, and we Cannot be too particular in our proper apprehension of its meaning. Resting in his own eternal glory and all-sufficiency, nothing Can add to, or take from that glory. Sooner might light be added to the sun by a faint taper of the night, or sound to the thunder by the human voice, than that JEHOVAH Can receive additional glory from any act, or from all the acts of his creatures, put them all together in one. When a poor believing soul Can say, it is the glory and perfection of a God in Christ to be laying out upon his redeemed of his infinite and inexhaustible fulness; and Christ in God is as much glorified by my poor heart, when passively receiving from his grace bestowed upon me, as when I actively praise him with joyful lips, when by his Holy Spirit he enables me to bring my poor boon of love and thankfulness. " (Colossians 2:9) But what angels or men Can describe this? And in Christ's ministry, offices, character, work, and relations in the accomplishment, who shall undertake to set forth the glory of the Father in the Son, and the glory of the Son by the Father, through the efficient operation of God the Holy Ghost?...
I will only add, that it forms a part of that glory which all the persons of the GODHEAD are concerned in, and will be loved, and praised, and adored for, to all eternity by the church, when the church is glorified and made everlastingly happy, from her union with her glorious Head Christ Jesus, and brought home through a life of grace here, to a life of unspeakable nearness, felicity, and glory in Christ Jesus hereafter, and to rest in the uninterrupted enjoyment of it for evermore
Gather - ”...
This verb is used metaphorically of things that Can be “gathered” only in a figurative sense. , the enemy considers how he Can use everything he hears and sees against his host. This verb Can also refer to “gathering” food at harvest time, or “harvesting”: “And six years thou shalt sow thy land, and shalt gather in the fruits thereof” ( Cannot be found. Finally, used in this way the verb Can mean “to bring into,” as when Jacob “gathered up his feet into the bed” ( Can also be the agent who “gathers” or “takes away” a soul: “Gather not my soul with sinners …” ( Can mean “being cured” of a disease; “Would God my lord were with the prophet that is in Samaria! for he would recover him of his leprosy” (2 Kings 5:3)
Ordination - Without ordination no person Can receive any benefice, parsonage, vicarage, &c. A person must be twenty-three years of age, or near it, before he Can be ordained deacon, or have any share in the ministry; and full twenty-four before he Can be ordained priest, and by that means be permitted to administer the holy communion. Having themselves no other orders than what either presbyters gave them, or what was given them as presbyters, they Can convey no other to those they ordain. On this ground the Protestant Dissenters plead that their ordination, though not episcopal, is the same with that of all the illustrious Protestant churches abroad; and object, that a priest ordained by a popish bishop should be received into the church of England as a valid minister, rightfully ordained; while the orders of another, ordained by the most learned religious presbyter, which any foreign country Can boast, are pronounced not valid, and he is required to submit to be ordained afresh. Accordingly the bishop at the ordination of the Candidate asks, "Are you called according to the will of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the due order of this realm!" The constitution and law of England seem to know nothing of uninterrupted lineal descent, but considers the king vested, by act of parliament, or the suffrage of the people, with a fulness of all power ecclesiastical in these realms, as empowering and authorizing bishops to ordain: and this power of ordination was once delegated to Cromwell, a layman, as vicegerent to the king. They farther think it strange, that the validity of orders and ministrations should be derived, as some have contended, from a succession of popish bishops; bishops of a church, which, by the definition of the nineteenth article of the church, Can be no part of the true visible church of Christ, and bishops, likewise, who consider the Protestant clergy, although ordained by Protestant bishops, as mere common unconsecrated laymen. Surely all may agree thus far, that various forms or modes, seeming to be used in the mission or ordination of ministers in primitive times, may give a reasonable occasion or colour for sincere and honest searchers after truth to follow different opinions on this head, and do therefore demand our Candid and charitable sentiments concerning those who differ from us
Job, Book of - The great problem of the book is, the government of God, not directly as with Israel, but providentially in a world into which sin and death had entered, and where Satan, if permitted of God, Can exercise his antagonistic power. God's dealings with men in government and chastening are for good; but this brings out another question, How Can man be just with God? — a question answered only in the gospel. He said to God, "Thou knowest that I am not wicked; and there is none that Can deliver out of thine hand. He spoke of God's dealings with mankind; how He speaks to man, even in dreams, to give him instruction; and if there be an interpreter, one among a thousand, who Can show him how his soul Can stand in truth before God, he may be delivered from going down to the pit; for God has found a ransom. ...
God Himself then takes up the case of Job, and, by speaking of the acts of His own divine wisdom and power in nature, shows by contrast the utter insignificance of Job. There God Can take him up
Prayer - Only when believers recognize their helplessness Can they really pray in the right spirit; for then they acknowledge that God Can do what they Cannot (John 15:5). ...
Although God’s people Can pray with assurance, they have no guarantee that God will immediately give the things they pray for. ...
If believers live righteous and godly lives, they Can have confidence that God hears and answers their prayers. By prayer they Can overcome anxiety (Philippians 4:6; 1 Peter 5:6-7). ...
Praying always...
People Can engage in prayer anywhere and at any time (Genesis 24:12-13; Nehemiah 2:4; Luke 5:16; Luke 6:12; Luke 18:10; Acts 10:9; 1 Timothy 5:5). In addition to developing the habit of speaking to God freely regardless of time or place, believers should set aside certain times when they Can be alone with God and pray
Miracle - Gleig, "is governed by stated general rules, or that there is an order of causes and effects established in every part of the system of nature which falls under our observation, is a fact which Cannot be controverted. ...
"If this definition of a miracle be just, no event Can be deemed miraculous merely because it is strange, or even to us unaccountable: since it may be nothing more than a regular effect of some unknown law of nature. In this country earthquakes are rare; and for monstrous births, perhaps, no particular and satisfactory account Can be given: yet an earthquake is as regular an effect of the established laws of nature as any of those with which we are most intimately acquainted: and, under circumstances in which there would always be the same kind of production, the monster is nature's genuine issue. It is therefore necessary, before we Can pronounce any effect to be a true miracle, that the circumstances under which it is produced be known, and that the common course of nature be in some degree understood; for in all those cases in which we are totally ignorant of nature, it is impossible to determine what is, or what is not, a deviation from its course. They suppose some antecedent knowledge of the course of nature, without which no proper judgment Can be formed concerning them; though with it their reality may be so apparent as to prevent all possibility of a dispute. From this plan no deviation Can be made but by God himself, or by some powerful being acting with his permission. From this consideration, some men have ventured to conclude that no miracle was ever wrought, or Can rationally be expected; but maturer reflection must soon satisfy us that all such conclusions are hasty. We Cannot, therefore, doubt, but that such of the laws of nature as extend not their operation beyond the limits of this earth were established chiefly, if not solely, for the good of mankind; and if, in any particular circumstances, that good Can be more effectually promoted by an occasional deviation from those laws, such a deviation may be reasonably expected. But the understandings of ignorant barbarians Cannot be enlightened by arguments; because of the force of such arguments as regard moral science they are not qualified to judge. Amongst these, we may confidently reckon the immortality of the soul, the terms upon which God will save sinners, and the manner in which that all perfect Being may be acceptably worshipped; about all of which philosophers were in such uncertainty, that, according to Plato, 'Whatever is set right, and as it should be, in the present evil state of the world, Can be so only by the particular interposition of God. It remains, therefore that, if God has been graciously pleased to enlighten and reform mankind, without destroying that moral nature which man possesses, he Can have done it only by revealing his truth to certain chosen instruments, who were the immediate instructors of their contemporaries, and through them have been the instructors of succeeding ages. They might easily, if it were part of their duty, to deliver a sublime divine system of natural and moral science, and establish it upon the common basis of experiment and demonstration: but what foundation could they lay for those truths which unassisted reason Cannot discover, and which, when they are revealed, appear to have no necessary relation to any thing previously known? To a bare affirmation that they had been immediately received from God, no rational being could be expected to assent. In this state of things we Can conceive no evidence sufficient to make such doctrines be received as the truths of God, but the power of working miracles committed to him who taught them. "Miracles, then, under which we include prophecy, are the only direct evidence which Can be given of divine inspiration. When a religion, or any religious truth, is to be revealed from heaven, they appear to be absolutely necessary to enforce its reception among men; and this is the only case in which we Can suppose them necessary, or believe for a moment that they ever have been or will be performed. They are, indeed, so incorporated with these systems, that the miracles Cannot be separated from the doctrines; and if the miracles be not really performed, the doctrines Cannot possibly be true. Hume, indeed, endeavoured to prove, that 'no testimony is sufficient to establish a miracle? and the reasoning employed for this purpose is, that 'a miracle being a violation of the laws of nature, which a firm and unalterable experience has established, the proof against a miracle, from the very nature of the fact, is as entire as any argument from experience' Can be: whereas our experience of human veracity, which (according to him) is the sole foundation of the evidence of testimony, as far from being uniform, and Can therefore never preponderate against that experience which admits of no exception. ' ...
This boasted and plausible argument has with equal Candour and acuteness been examined by Dr. The very resolution of the apostles to propagate the belief of false miracles in support of such a religion as that which is taught in the New Testament, is as great a miracle as human imagination Can easily conceive. Nor Can it be said that they might look forward to power and affluence, when they should through sufferings have converted their countrymen; for so desirous were they of obtaining nothing but misery, as the end of their mission, that they made their own persecution a test of the truth of their doctrines. Had these clear predictions of the Author of that religion, under whom the apostles acted only as ministers not been verified, all mankind must have instantly perceived that their pretence to inspiration was false, and that Christianity was a scandalous and impudent imposture. ...
But if there be a law of nature, for the reality of which we have better evidence than we have for others, it is, that 'no man Can choose misery for its own sake, ' or make the acquisition of it the ultimate end of his pursuit. "Thus, then, do miracles force themselves upon our assent in every possible view which we Can take of this interesting subject
Wedding Garment - The story, however, makes it quite plain that it is nothing we Can do for ourselves. And when this sinful condition is contrasted with God’s absolute holiness, no conclusion Can be drawn but that man as he is Cannot stand in God’s presence. The indifference to that fact is the heaviest condemnation the world Can receive
Reconciliation - The "reconciliation" here Cannot be that of ourselves to God, or having its rise in us, for we then should not be said to "receive" it, but that of God to us. ) "Man Can suffer, but Cannot satisfy; God Can satisfy, but Cannot suffer. But Christ, being both God and man, Can both suffer and also satisfy
Predestination - ...
If we allow the attribute of prescience, the idea of a decree must certainly be believed also, for how Can an action that is really to come to pass be foreseen, if it be not determined? God knew every thing from the beginning; but this he could not have known if he had not so determined it. If, also, God be infinitely wise, it Cannot be conceived that he would leave things at random, and have no plan. If he, then, be wise and unchangeable, no new idea or purpose Can arise in his mind; no alteration of his plan Can take place, upon condition of his creatures acting in this or that way
Galley - " No galley with oars Can come into that river, which is God himself. No gallant ship Can pass by him, who is purposely there to prevent it. Sweet thought! The tacklings of the enemy may be loosed, but they Can neither strengthen their mast, nor spread their sail

The subdelegate Cannot make a new delegation, but he Can call in others to assist him in the details of his work
Doctor - In medieval times, this title was given at first only to professors of civillaw, was later "applied also to Canonists by a decretal of Innocent III (1198-1216), and in the 13th century some universities granted it to students of grammar, medicine, logic, and philosophy. The curriculum, the examination, and the length of the course of study differed in the various universities, Bologna requiring six years for the doctorate in Canon law, and Paris five years, according to the statutes of 1215.

Reprobate - Isaiah 1:22 ); it is used always in the NT in a Passive sense, (a) of things, Hebrews 6:8 , "rejected," of land that bears thorns and thistles; (b) of persons, Romans 1:28 , of a "reprobate mind," a mind of which God Cannot approve, and which must be rejected by Him, the effect of refusing "to have God in their knowledge;" in 1 Corinthians 9:27 (for which see CAST , REJECTED); 2 Corinthians 13:5,6,7 , where the RV rightly translates the adjective "reprobate" (AV, "reprobates"), here the reference is to the great test as to whether Christ is in a person; in 2 Timothy 3:8 of those "reprobate concerning the faith," i. , if they are put to the test in regard to any good work (in contrast to their profession), they Can only be rejected
Divinity - Yet it is not the personal God whom any man may learn to know by these aids; He Can be known only by the revelation of Himself in His Son;
Innocents, Slaughter of the - However, it Can be found in ancient nonbiblical documents, such as the Protoevangelium of James , Infancy Gospel of Thomas , and Gospel of Pseudo- Matthew
Prescription - Others, however, think that if it Can be shown that any particular doctrine of Christianity was held in the earliest ages, even approaching the apostolic, it must have very considerable weight; and, indeed, that it has so, appears from the universal appeals of all parties to those early times in support of their particular opinions
Facets - By extension the root Can designate a face or surface, hence the translation facet
Innocence, Innocency - Though the innocent are frequently mentioned, the biblical writers were well aware that only God Can create a right heart and remove sin (Jeremiah 31:33-344 ; Jeremiah 24:7 ; 1618452266_15 )
Lud, Ludim - ...
On the other hand, Ludim is given as the name of one of the descendants of Mizraim (Egypt) in Genesis 10:13 ( 1 Chronicles 1:11 ) in a list of peoples all undoubtedly African. Here there Can be no question of Asiatic Lydians, and experts are divided as to whether an unknown African people is referred to, or whether we are to read Lubim (wh
Frame - Frame Can be interpreted either as “how we are formed” (NIV) or “what we are made of” (TEV)
Detraction - It is a fault opposed to Candour. Nothing Can be more incongruous with the spirit of the Gospel, the example of Christ, the command of God, and the love of mankind, than a spirit of detraction; and yet there are many who never seem happy but when they are employed in this work: they feed and live upon the supposed infirmities of others; they allow excellence to none; they depreciate every thing that is praise-worthy; and, possessed of no good themselves, they think all others are like them

Providence: Rightly Places us - If you begin to say, 'I Cannot glorify God where I am, and as I am,' I answer, neither could you anywhere if not where you are. Providence, which arranged your surroundings, appointed them so that, all things being considered, you are in the position in which you Can best display the wisdom and the grace of God
Sorrow: Benefit of - That seed which suns itself in the noontide beam may rejoice in the light in which it basks, but it is liable to be devoured by the bird; and certainly nought Can come of it, however long it may linger above ground; but the other seed, hidden beneath the clods in a damp, dark sepulchre, soon swells, germinates, bursts its sheath, upheaves the mould, springs up a green blade, buds, blossoms, becomes a flower, exhales perfume, and loads the wings of every wind
Sorrow: For Sin Absorbing - ' ...
If one absorbing thought Can thus take precedence of every other in the affairs of life, is it so very wonderful that men aroused to care for the life to come should be altogether swallowed up with grief at the dread discovery that they are by reason of sin condemned of God? Fine or foul may the weather be, but if the soul be under the wrath of God its woeful condition will make it careless of surroundings
Slothful - The Hebrew term Can refer to a bow not strung or equipped with an arrow for action (Psalm 78:57 ; Hosea 7:16 ). The slothful person Cannot lead but becomes subjected to another's rule (Proverbs 12:24 ; compare Proverbs 10:4 ; Proverbs 19:15 )
