On Eagle's Wings

By Rev. Paul Rader

“They that wait upon the LORD shall renew (exchange) their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” —Isaiah 40:31

You will notice that, before God gives a promise like this, He is like a good banker. The banker, before he asks you to deposit your money, writes on his window and on his literature his resources.

God says, “Hast though not known, hast thou not heard, that the everlasting Lord, the creator, fainteth not, neither is weary? There is no searching of His understanding. …

The Last Act

By Rev. Paul Rader

“To this end was the Son of God manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.” —1 John 3:8

It is absolutely necessary for Jesus Himself to return to this earth, in order to finish the task that He set out to do, as stated in this text. Here on the earth, is where God has been blasphemed, here is where men have sinned, here is where the devil has had his run as the god of this world, here is where he is prince of the power of the air, and “goeth about as a roaring lion, …

Through War Clouds To God

By Rev. Paul Rader

“Until the day dawn and the day star arise in your hearts.”

The above phrase is taken from 2 Peter 1: 19, and it is to this phrase that we will direct our attention; but to get the proper setting, let me quote the entire verse: “We have a more sure word of prophecy, whereunto ye do well to take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts.”

The war has not only brought dark clouds of heart sorrow, but clouds of doubt to men’s …

A Troubled Borrower

By Rev. Paul Rader

“But as one was felling a beam, the axe head fell into the water; and he cried, and said, Alas, master! For it was borrowed.” —2 Kings 6:5

Elisha was at the head of a school of the young sons of the prophets at Gilgal, and this chapter records a theological lesson given to the theological students.

The students in this school said, “Behold, now, the place where we dwell with thee is too strait for us, Let us go, we pray thee, unto Jordan, and take thence every man a beam, and let us make us a place there, …

Transformed And Transfigured, Or Conformed And Disfigured

By Rev. Paul Rader

“Be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable and perfect, will of God.”—Romans 12:2

Now, here’s an exact mathematical proposition, where you can get the answer and prove it. “Be not conformed to this world.” He tells you how—“by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable and perfect, will of God.”

The artist that is drawing a good picture refers very often to the model. Here is a man painting a mountain scene, so …

Peace Paid For

By Rev. Paul Rader

“And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” —1 Thessalonians 5:23

“And the very God of peace”—He is the Lord of hosts, He is the God of creation, He is the God of love; and this verse says that He is the “very God of peace.”

There is no wrangle in heaven, Hallelujah. There is no misunderstanding in heaven, there is no friction in heaven—He is the very God of peace. As surely as when there is …

Comments on 2 Peter 1

By Rev. Paul Rader

“Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord.”

Sometimes God adds, and sometimes He multiplies. Grace and peace are always multiplied.

“According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness.”

“Hath given unto us”—we do not have to work for them.

“through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and …

Claiming Our Inheritance

By Rev. Paul Rader

“Surely the land whereon thy feet have trodden shall be thine inheritance, and thy children’s forever, because thou hast wholly followed the Lord my God. Lo, I am this day four score and five years old. As yet I am as strong this day as I was in the day that Moses sent me, as my strength was then, even so is my strength now, for war, both to go out, and to come in. Now therefore give me this mountain, whereof the Lord spake in that day.”—Joshua 14:9–12

Now , that is the history of God’s dealings with the …

1917-11-10 The Way Out.jpg

The Way Out

By Rev. Paul Rader

“Have you seen this man that is come up?” —1 Samuel 17:25

All the magazines and the books of our times are talking about the awful confusion that is upon us, and of the world conditions that we face today. There isn’t a department of life where there is not a crisis problem. If it is business, it is a grave problem; if it is the home, it is the greatest testing time that it has ever known; if it is education, it is a mass of problems; if it is religion, it is legion. Preachers are in more of …

A New Story About Mr. Moody

By John Langston

Mr. John Langston, who, as a boy, remembers Mr. Moody’s first work in Chicago, and attended the North Market Street Sunday School, gave a very interesting description of Mr. Moody’s recruiting methods. He said:

“It is something to be born again, and I found Jesus back in the Illinois Street mission through the instrumentality of my old teacher, George Roberts, who went home to Glory during this present year. I bless the day when George talked to me after school, and you teachers have a splendid opportunity, better than any pastor could have.

“I want to go back to the …
