The Virgin Birth

By Stuart Nye Hutchison, D.D.

A Christmas Meditation

In our Apostles’ Creed we say “I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; conceived by the Holy Ghost; born of the Virgin Mary…”

On what grounds do we believe this? First, we believe, because it is plainly and directly stated in the New Testament. It is there declared so positively that it cannot be explained away by any sort of ingenuity. The two Gospels which begin the life of Jesus at His birth both affirm it. It is quite universally agreed that the early part of the Gospel of Matthew is the story of …

The Birth Of The Saviour

By Dr. Harry A. Ironside

“And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:) to be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. And so it was, that, while …

A Journey From Faith To Praise

By Author Unknown

What was the mental and spiritual effect of the Christmas message upon those who first heard it? With simple, unquestioning faith, the shepherds go to find the Babe in Bethlehem. There, “they made known concerning the saying which was told them about this Child. And all they that heard it wondered…But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart. And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God…”

Here are four reactions of the human mind and spirit to the wondrous message of Christmastide. Here are faith, wonder, meditation, praise. It is true that one or two of …

The Unifying Power Of Christmas Music

By Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

The Incredible Gift Of The Music Of Christmas: How Messiah Can Unite a Fragmented Church

To a divided church, we pray that the music of Christmas might bring some much-needed healing.

The other day a friend of mine said he believed the church—the evangelical church—did not know “where it was at,” to use his terminology. The reason? Many people have not returned to church since the pandemic. Some have become accustomed to staying at home and watching online; some are angry because their church shut down during the pandemic; others are angry because they think their church was negligent for …

A Quarter Century Of Gospel Preaching

By Antonio F. Scorza

Antonio F. Scorza was pastor of the Moody Italian Mission Church from 1922 into the 1940s. The Moody Italian Mission Church was started in 1909.

“As the truth of Christ is in me, no man shall stop me of this boasting in the regions of Achaia.” “What persecutions I endured, but out of them all the Lord delivered me” (2 Corinthians 11:10; 2 Timothy 3:11b).

Next to my Saviour and Lord, Paul the apostle is my pattern of a Christian and a servant of God. Reading his inspired writings has been through these years an unfailing source of inspiration and …

Seven-Fold Purpose Of Christ’s Second Coming

By Rev. H. Bultema

My text is found in Romans 12:12, where the Word of God reads as follows: “Rejoicing in hope.”

Some dear folks say we have no commandments for the church. We have New Testament commandments, any number of them, even in Romans 12. This is one of them: “Rejoice in hope.” The Lord does not say, “Rejoice in faith; rejoice in peace; rejoice in love.” But He does say, “Rejoice in hope.” Hope is a thing that can thrill our hearts as nothing else can do. Hope is pointing us not to a good thing in the future, but to a …

Christ And The Bible

By Dr. P.W. Philpott

“The scripture cannot be broken.”—John 10:35

We are all aware of the fact that during the last twenty-five years and more, especially the last fifteen years, there has been a very widespread and determined effort put forth to set aside the authenticity of the Bible. Just why intelligent men, who are interested in the welfare of humanity, should be engaged in this destructive work is a question that I will not attempt to answer. They surely know that the Bible has not been the enemy of civilization. The foundations of our best American institutions were laid by men who were …

The Deity Of Christ

By Milford Hall Lyon

“And Thomas answered and said unto Him, My Lord and my God.”—John 20:28

In His company of apostles, Jesus chose every type and phase of human character. There was the intense, impetuous Peter; the precise, austere James; the matter-of-fact Andrew; the earnest, loving John; the business man Matthew; the zealot Simon; and also the skeptic Thomas. Now I would not imply that Thomas represents the highest type of character, but I do hold that Thomas represents a very frequently found type. Wherever he is spoken of in the Scripture, it is always with some expression of pessimism or doubt. When …

The Way Through A Storm

By Charles H. Troutman

“He who observes the wind will not sow; and he who regards the clouds will not reap.”—Ecclesiastes 11:4

What does the Preacher mean by these words? That watching the wind is wrong? That considering the clouds is a highly impractical activity when carried to excess? Certainly a good farmer keeps his weather eye open even as he sows and reaps.

Scripture repeatedly commands us to look, to watch. Observation and evaluation are essential—especially when winds are icy and clouds ominous. But if our careful analyses lead us to inaction, we underestimate the God who makes clouds His chariot, winds His …

Uncovering Islam's Agenda For America

By Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

The Tipping Point: Uncovering Islam’s Agenda & Restoring Biblical Truth

Our trip to Turkey is still vivid in my mind. In 2009, Rebecca and I visited the sites of the “Seven Churches of Revelation.” In the town of Philadelphia, I remember seeing the ruins of a destroyed church building, but next to it was a beautiful, well-kept mosque. I was thinking, “What did Jesus mean when He assured this first century church in Philadelphia, ‘I have set before you an open door which no one is able to shut’?” (Revelation 3:7). At each of the seven ancient cities, we saw …
