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 …

Rescue The Perishing

By Rev. Paul Rader

Go out into the highways and the hedges and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.”—Luke 14:23

There is a picture of this compelling in the story of the Good Samaritan in the 10th chapter of Luke. We can take this story, this good news, this Gospel to a lost and beaten world, and it compels men to come into the Father’s house. We are not to go with the law. Praise God for that, but we are to go and preach this compelling Gospel of the grace of God to a world that …

Making A Living

By Rev. Paul Rader

The strongest natural desire of the human heart is to live. And the great decisive question for each living soul is: How shall I live? Let us read together the first three verses of the 12th chapter of John and see how the three people here spoken of made a living:

Then Jesus, six days before the Passover, came to Bethany, where Lazarus was, which had been dead, whom He raised from the dead.” That’s how Lazarus got his living: straight from Jesus.

Then they made Him a supper; and Martha served; but Lazarus was one of them that …

Where Shall I Turn?

By Rev. Paul Rader

In 2 Kings, the first chapter, we find the story of a king in trouble and God’s dealing with him because he turned to an idol, “The God of Flies,” in his distress. First of all, let us look at this great truth: namely, in an hour of trouble there is a splendid chance to see the working of the right arm of God. If we throw away these chances by turning to help outside of God we lose the key to a door that would have opened into God’s treasure house.

The account in 2 Kings says Ahaziah …

Bright Lights

By Rev. Paul Rader

My subject tonight is “Bright Lights”—not Christian bright lights, but what the world calls “bright lights”—the “big bugs.” I want you to see how they go out—so suddenly, so surely. The switch goes off very easily, the connection is broken, and they vanish into darkness. They shine like diamonds; then they envy the sun, and out they go. Notice this verse in Numbers 16:2: “And they rose up before Moses, with certain of the children of Israel, two hundred and fifty princes of the assembly, famous in the congregation, men of renown.”

Man’s Choosing

Here is a …

Losing

By Rev. Paul Rader

My subject this morning is “Losing,” and my text is a part of the third verse of the second chapter of the second letter to the Thessalonians:

For that day shall not come except there come a falling away first.”

There are also four or five verses in the eighth chapter of Jeremiah that I want to use as a backbone of the things I wish to say to you. I want to show how we “lose out”; how we “fall away.”

I want to talk very tenderly—as tenderly as I know how, by the power of …

A Vision Of The Hosts

By Rev. Paul Rader

The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge.”

These words you notice in reading the 46th Psalm, make up both the seventh and the eleventh verses and we could well call them the chorus of the psalm. I want to talk to you this morning about this beautiful chorus.

In this time in which we live, strange things are happening—things that men cannot understand and men cannot fathom; not very strange as far as war is concerned, for war is old, but there are stranger things happening in society, there are fine old …

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 …
