1949-06 Atonement.jpg


By Pastor A.C. Dixon, D.D.

We also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received atonement.”—Romans 5:11

The word “Atonement” occurs about eighty times in the Old Testament and only this once in the New. But the fact of atonement is everywhere in both Testaments, beginning with Abel’s bloody sacrifice and ending with “The Lamb as it had been slain in the midst of the throne.”

A friend said to John Newton, “I cannot see the doctrine of the atonement in the Scriptures.” Mr. Newton replied, “I tried to light my candle the other evening with …

Are There Few That Be Saved?

By Carl Armerding, D.D.

Message by Carl Armerding, D.D. Associate Professor of Bible and Theology, Wheaton College, Wheaton, Illinois.

For our meditation this evening let us turn again to Luke’s Gospel, chapter 13, commencing at verse 22. “And he went through the cities and villages, teaching, and journeying toward Jerusalem. Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. When once the master of the house is risen up, and …

God's Friendship

By George D. Watson

There are many ties that come down from God like golden threads, and twine themselves about us to bind us to Him. He is our Creator, Preserver, Redeemer, Ruler, Father, Judge, and bears many other relationships; but there is one tie amid them all that is somewhat different from all the others, and that is friendship. God is our Friend, and we can, through sanctifying grace and by walking in the steps of Abraham, become the real friends of God.

More Than Pardon

The friendship of God is something more than pardon, or heart purity, or the baptism with the …

How to Study Your Bible

By Dr. Harry A. Ironside

From the time I was converted as a boy of fourteen, the Bible was to me the most interesting book in the world, and though forty years have gone by since I first knew my sins forgiven, no other book has ever displaced it in my affections. Because of this, I am really surprised when young Christians tell me that they are not particularly interested in the study of the Word of God. I wonder why. Is it because after all one is really never born again and therefore has no appetite for spiritual things? Or is it because the …

Hitherto Hath the Lord Helped Us

By Anonymous

Remarks by Messrs. T.J. Burtness, Anton E. Erickson, Thomas S. Smith, and John E. Erickson at the Watch Night Service, When the Last Note of Indebtedness was Destroyed.

Introduction by Mr. Burtness

When this magnificent building was dedicated in 1925, there was outstanding against it a debt of approximately $550,000, made up of a mortgage bond issue of $450,000 and bank loans and unpaid bills adding up to another $100,000.

In these days of astronomic governmental expenditures, when talk of billions is on everyone’s lips, thousands and hundreds of thousands do not seem so stupendous …

Facts Concerning the Heating, Lighting, Ventilating and Plumbing Facilities of The Moody Church

By Anonymous

The first part of the new building to be constructed was the foundation of the section adjoining the alley at the north which has been spoken of as the Sunday School building. It was on this basement that the Temporary Tabernacle was constructed which has now been demolished to allow the building operations to proceed. While for convenience the church section has been spoken of as the church building and the Sunday School section as the Sunday School building, in reality when the builders have finished their task the whole will appear as a single huge edifice covering the ground …

The Divine Logic of Foreign Missions

By Rev. F.C.H. Dreyer

By Rev. F.C.H. Dreyer, Retired Moody Church Missionary

Worldwide Christian missions are not founded on emotion, altruism, or expediency, but upon the transcendent love and the eternal purpose of God. Those who deny the lordship of Christ and reject the authority of the Scriptures have no urge to carry the Gospel to other parts of the world. They may look on missions as pious, well-intentioned undertakings, which afford outlets for philanthropic instincts in social service but otherwise they will see little foreign missionary work to interest realistic men and women of today. But those who accept the authority …

The Holy Spirit in the Life of Our Lord

By John Caiger

Message given on Wednesday, July 21, 1954 by John Caiger

The New Testament Epistles are consistently strong in their insistence that the Christian life is to be lived in the power of the Holy Spirit. It is a life which is from above, proceeding from the Throne of God and of the Lamb, brought to us and fulfilled in us by the Executor of the Godhead, the Holy Ghost.

This insistence is strengthened in the New Testament by a pre-eminent example of the same truth given us in the Gospel records of the life and teaching of our Lord Himself …

God's Word Tested and Proven

By Dr. Harry A. Ironside

Admittedly these chapters and the most of those to follow do not lend themselves readily to expository preaching. Yet we would not forget that “All Scripture is God-breathed and profitable;” so we may be sure that these portions were written for our admonition and have in them precious lessons we cannot afford to pass over lightly.

In the opening verses of Joshua 11, we read of the second, and, as it turned out, the last great coalition of Canaanite nations that Joshua and the Lord’s host had to face before they could take possession of their promised inheritance. This …

The Lord's Call

By Rev. Paul Rader

The Lord called Samuel.” It is easy to understand that this was not a voice which others could hear or Eli could have heard it. The voice was very clear indeed to Samuel; Samuel was sure that some one had called him. This Scripture should show us that while others may be used of the Lord in clearing up our call and proving to us that it is the Lord and not man that is calling, yet the call must be heard by the one called and by him alone.

How foolish we are when we expect others to understand …
