At The Banquet

By Rev. Paul Rader

He brought me to the banqueting house and His banner over me was love.” —Song of Solomon 2:4

The best banquets I ever saw were football banquets, given by some lover of the university to the victorious team. They ate! Oh how that crowd of big huskies ate. They didn’t pick over things and eat a fork full and set it aside. They cleaned up everything in sight. They sang the songs of victory. They shouted out their praise of heroes and they yelled for their university. There was not a dead moment. Every man was a live …

Assurance of Salvation

By Dwight L. Moody

These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. —1 John 5:13

There are two classes who ought not to have assurance. First: Those who are in the church but who are not converted, having never been born of the Spirit. Second: Those not willing to do God’s will; who are not ready to take the place that God has mapped out for them, but want to fill some …

Soldiers' Epitaphs

By Rev. Paul Rader

Perhaps in the morning His face we shall see—
The Redeemer and Savior of men;
And oh, what a glorious day that will be—
He is coming, is coming again!”

Dear friends, that is the song to sing above the Christian graves today. That is the hope, praise God! Perhaps all our tears of today will be wiped away by tomorrow morning; we may never have to shed another. Glory to God for that blessed hope. He will come into mid-air and catch away His own, His waiting Bride, the regenerated ones, the ones born again from above. Praise …

Love That Passeth Knowledge

By Dwight L. Moody

To know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge.—Ephesians 3:19

If I could only make men understand the real meaning of the words of the apostle John, “God is love,” I would take that single text, and go up and down the world proclaiming this glorious truth. If you can convince a man that you love him, you have won his heart. If we really make people believe that God loves them, how we should find them crowding into the kingdom of heaven! The trouble is that men think God hates them; and so they are all …

The Signs Of The Times—Part 2

By Rev. Paul Rader

This is part 2 of a two-part article. Part 1 can be found here.

The Time is Upon Us

In God’s name, let the star shine out to the wise men and see why these awful times are upon us! These are the days of His preparation—Jesus Christ is coming to judge the earth. It is not my business to scare you, but if I am an honest man and have found these things in the Book, I am a poor low cur unless I tell you about it. I am not asking people to follow me on some kind …

The Signs Of The Times—Part 1

By Rev. Paul Rader

Second chapter of Matthew, first verse. “Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, saying, Where is He that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen His star in the east, and are come to worship Him.”

The wise men sought Him; the wise men are seeking Him today. When I was a young fellow out in Wyoming we had a good many wiseacres out there in the little town where I lived. Some of you have heard …

A Great Leader

By Rev. Paul Rader

The text is in the 11th chapter of Isaiah. God is talking about the coming kingdom and the things that are to happen; of the character of the King; of the quality of the kingdom and the character of His reign; and how the kingdom is to be set up when Jesus as King of kings comes back to this Earth again. In the 6th verse He says: “The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together”—and then these remarkable words …

The Last Laugh

By Rev. Paul Rader

You will find the first text for tonight in Ecclesiastes 7:6. “For as the crackling of thorns under a pot, so is the laughter of the fool.”

How useless is the crackling of a thorn in the fire—just a little bit of a noise and out it flies.

Now, what is a fool? God surely does not refer so often in the Scriptures to a fool and mean what we mean by a fool. Usually when you talk to people from God’s Word about being a fool they say to themselves: “Well, I have pretty good sense—I am …

The Blessed Hope

By Rev. Paul Rader

Looking for that blessed hope and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour, Jesus Christ.”—Titus 2:13

I want to talk to you tonight on this wonderful hope that we have, of the coming back of Jesus. As you have listened to this beautiful music, what a joy it has been to you to hear in song the blessed words: “He is coming again!”But oh, what a joy it is to think of the “time of music” that is ahead!

The devil has in his hands a good deal of the music down …

Diseases Of The Heart

By Rev. Paul Rader

Before men ever began to study psychology, before a college ever established a chair of psychology, before scientists ever delved into the powers and functions of a human heart, God had given an explanation of the whole human make-up. Before men ever learned that there was something besides the physical, besides a disposition, and called it an “over-soul” or an “under-soul” or a “sub-conscious self” or by any other name, God had written what it was. God calls the human being a trinity. His word says in 1 Thessalonians 5:23:

I pray God your whole spirit and souland  …
