Golden Jubilee Celebration: 1891–1941

By Dr. Harry A. Ironside

Editor’s note: What follows is how The Moody Church celebrated 50 years of Harry Ironside’s ministry. After the list of events is how Pastor Ironside came to saving faith in Jesus Christ.

Fifty years of Christ-centered ministry! First by personal testimony as a Salvation Army lad upon the street corner, then as an officer in the same organization. Next as a traveling Bible teacher and preacher in fellowship with the assemblies of the brethren. Missionary work among those original Americans, the Indians, was followed by a country-wide traveling Bible Conference ministry. Finally the pastorate of The Moody Church of Chicago …

Revival—The Kind That Counts

By Pastor A.C. Dixon, D.D.

My soul cleaveth unto the dust: QUICKEN THOU ME according to Thy word.”—Psalm 119:25

I am afflicted very much: QUICKEN ME, O Lord, according to Thy word.”—Psalm 119:107

Plead my cause and deliver me: QUICKEN ME according to Thy word.”—Psalm 119:154

These words of Scripture define a true revival. It is a quickening according to God’s Word, not according to some man’s magnetism of eccentricity. A talented evangelist may swoop down upon a community and make a stir by sharp striking sayings, draw large crowds and quicken a kind of interest, but such a …

A Heavenly Guide

By Rev. Paul Rader

Now there were in the Church that was at Antioch certain prophets and teachers; as Barnabas, and Simeon that was called Niger, and Lucius of Cyrene, and Manaen, which had been brought up with Herod the tetrarch, and Saul.

As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them. 

And when they had fasted and prayed, and laid their hands on them, they sent them away.

So they, being sent forth by the Holy Ghost, departed.” —Acts 13:1–4.

As we read the …

A Sweet Savour Unto God

By Rev. Paul Rader

(Helpful to Sunday School Lesson of March 7, 1920, 1 John 4:7–21)

God is love.” We could also say “God is law”; for in another place in the Scripture God says, “Love is the fulfilling of the law.” Now the law was holy and was placed before men that they might see themselves as God sees them. It was as if a shabby tramp suddenly came upon the picture of a real clean and well-dressed man, and recognized the awful chasm between himself and this gentleman. God placed the law that men might see the chasm between …

The Wealth Of The Christian

By Dr. Alan Redpath

No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.”—Isaiah 54:17

Last Sunday morning we were considering the first part of this chapter of God’s Word, especially in reference to verse 8 and in its setting: “In a little wrath I hid my face from thee for a moment; but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on thee, saith the Lord thy Redeemer.” We saw …

The End!

By Rev. Paul Rader

So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it (the end) is near, even at the doors.”—Matthew 24:33

I do not want to give you men’s words to start with, but God’s Word on this subject. If we make any deduction, if we draw any conclusion, we have no right to start with anything as a premise but the Word of God, Who alone holds the future in His hand. Man has been calling himself splendid names because he has been able to preserve something of the past. He points to the pyramids, swells …

Stretch Forth Thine Hand

By Rev. Paul Rader

These words, used as a caption for this sermon, are the words used by Jesus to the man with the withered hand.

How striking is the argument of Jesus in this passage concerning the value of a man. These Pharisees would admit the value of a sheep and pull it from a pit on the Sabbath day, but for Jesus to do this healing work on the Sabbath day is terrific in their cross-eyed, legally focused way of looking at things. To the earth crowd it is great to burn the midnight oil to gain knowledge and pass examinations, but …

The Church's Marching Orders

By Dr. Alan Redpath

Here again is sounded a great summons from heaven to the people of God concerning their exodus from the captivity of Babylon. It was not the first time that God has said this to them, for the Lord has said exactly the same thing: “Go ye forth of Babylon, flee ye from the Chaldeans, with a voice of singing declare ye, tell this, utter it even to the end of the earth; say ye, The Lord hath redeemed his servant Jacob” (Isaiah 48:23). Here is the prophet anticipating a day when God is going to lead His people out …

The Radiant Life

By Dr. Harry A. Ironside

The last Psalm of this second series of five is the 34th and again we find that it links with the one that went before. This previous Psalm has been calling people to worship, to praise Him and the last two verses say, “For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name. Let thy mercy, O Lord, be upon us, according as we hope in thee.” And immediately the soul speaks in the next Psalm, “I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.” Notice …

Let Go And Let God

By Rev. Paul Rader

And Peter answered Him and said, if it be Thou, bid me come unto Thee on the water. And He said come” (Matthew 14:28–29). We have in this text most surely a picture of letting go and letting God.

God’s Word in dealing with a world covered with darkness and water—a world without form and void—was just one word, “Let.”

Think of all this word “Let” means for the old Earth on which we live. The Earth produces its fruits, its flowers, its fish, its flesh of animals and upon it live this human race because God …
