Fire From Heaven – By Seth Rees

Chapter 15
Call of Rebekah (Gen. xxiv. 34-36)

“And he said, I am Abraham’s servant. And the Lord hath blessed my master greatly; and he is become great: and he hath given him flocks and herds, and silver, and gold, and menservants, and maidservants, and camels, and asses. And Sarah, my master’s wife, bare a son to my master when she was old: and unto him hath he given all that he hath” (Gen. xxiv. 34-36).
These are the words of Abraham’s chief servant “that ruled over all that he had.” He had been dispatched on a most delicate and important errand, viz., the selection of a wife for Abraham’s only son, Isaac. The whole incident is very instructive and interesting, and in a most striking manner illustrates or symbolizes the calling of the New Testament Church by the Holy Ghost to be the bride of Isaac’s great antitype, Jesus Christ, God’s only Son. It is pertinent that we notice here that it is not by accident that the events of chapters xxii., xxiii. and xxiv. come as they do.

Holy War – By Seth Rees

Chapter 13
The Perfection which God Requires (Phil. iii, 8-15)

Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, 9 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: 10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; 11 If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead. 12Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus. 13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, 14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. 15 Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in anything ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you. — Phil. 3:8-15
The word “perfect” when applied to salvation is so widely misunderstood that we are compelled to repeat again and again the New Testament line of teaching, and the New Testament thought with regard to what Christian perfection is.
You notice that the word “perfection” is used twice in the lesson which I have read.
First, referring to a perfection yet to be reached, a perfection yet deferred until the resurrection out from among the dead — the first resurrection.
Second, a perfection which the apostle professes that he has, and he addresses those who have the blessing and says, “Let as many as be perfect be thus minded.”
