Entire Sanctification

By Rev. James M. Gray, D.D.

This article has a history. Some time ago a western correspondent sent us an earnest letter urging his view of holiness, and putting certain questions to us to be answered. The letter was so frank and cordial as well as earnest that we fully intended to reply to it at length, and took it with us on a journey to prepare an answer. But somehow it became mislaid or was left behind on the train, and the circumstance dropped out of mind. Later the notes we had prepared in reply came to light, and we believe their publication will interest …

A Farewell Message

By Rev. Paul Rader

“As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me, Barnabas and Saul, for the work whereunto I have called them.” —Acts 13:2

I come this morning, I am sure, with a surprise, in a sense, to this audience.

For some little time before I left on my trip around the world, there was a discussion as to what my future relationship to The Moody Church should be. At that time I handed in my resignation and then left for the trip.

Since I have returned, I have been much in prayer, as has the Committee, …

The Menace Of Evolution

By A.C. Dixon, D.D.

(An address given at the Second World Conference on Christian Fundamentals, May 20, 1920. Not revised by author).

“God said.” —Genesis 1:3

“Yea, hath God said?” —Genesis 3:1

“In the midst of the throne…stood a Lamb as it had been slain.” —Revelation 5:6

The first verse of Genesis reads like a perfect order, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” There is no nebulosity about that. The heaven and the earth were clearly understood, and God made both of them perfect. The earth became without form and void.

Dr. Anstey, in his fascinating book, “The Romance of …

Jesus, The Prophet

By Dr. R.A. Torrey

(An address given at the Second World Conference on Christian Fundamentals at The Moody Church Tabernacle, May 20, 1920. Not revised by author).

“Jehovah thy God will raise up unto thee a prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken.

“And Jehovah said unto me, They have well said that which they have spoken.

“I will raise them up a prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee; and I will put my words in his mouth, and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.

“And it …

Blind Guides

By A.C. Dixon, D.D.

I have just read a book entitled, “A Guide to the Study of the Christian Religion,” sent out from Chicago University. I wish someone would write a companion volume and entitle it “A Color-Blind Guide to the Study of the Christian Religion.” For these eminent gentlemen are blind to three things. They are blind to the purple—they see no royalty in Jesus Christ. To them He is an evolution from things before Him, and did not come down from heaven as He said He did, but came up from the mud with the rest.

They are blind to the red, …

1920-06-23 Canaan Land.jpg

Canaan Land

By Rev. Paul Rader

God’s plan was to get his people into the land of Canaan. He never wanted them to die in the wilderness and have to come through the Jordan again, which was typical of another water crossing. So many people think that crossing the Jordan is typical of coming into the fulness of the Holy Spirit and forget that there are two types, because the parents came through the Red Sea and the children there in the wilderness had never been through the Red Sea. God had to take them through Jordan.

The experience of the fulness of the Holy Spirit …

Christian Efficiency

By Rev. Paul Rader

“And it came to pass in those days, when Moses was grown, that he went out unto his brethren, and looked on their burdens; and he spied an Egyptian smiting an Hebrew, one of his brethren.

“And he looked this way and that way, and when he saw that there was no man, he slew the Egyptian, and hid him in the sand.

“And when he went out the second day, behold, two men of the Hebrews strove together: and he said to him that did the wrong, Wherefore smitest thou thy fellow?

“And he said, Who made thee a …

The Next Great Step Getting Ready For The Coming Of Christ

By Rev. Paul Rader

Opening address of Fifth Annual Missionary Rally, May 27, 1920.

What is the next step in getting ready for the coming of the Lord? First of all, if we are going to step at all, we must find out which way is forward. Sometimes when the fire alarm sounds people know help is needed, but they run in the wrong direction. So many of the things the church of Jesus Christ has done on Earth through the years have been in the wrong direction, that it behooves the church of God to be very careful to know the will of …

Victor

By Rev. Paul Rader

(Helpful to Sunday School Lesson of May 16, 1920, 1 Samuel 7:2–17)

“The time was long.” This has been the testimony of all the saints of God when the glory of the presence of God has dimmed, and when the heart has been far from His will. Here the ark was far from the heart of the people. One of the poets has said:

“The midsummer sun shines but dim,
The fields strive in vain to look gay,”

Whenever the Lord is not near, and His presence real.

“Return unto the Lord with all your hearts.” This was Samuel’s first …

Can A Man Reach God?

By Rev. Paul Rader

“Canst thou by searching find out God?” —Job 11:7

Before you really understand the import of this question you probably would like to look at its setting in the Word of God. Job was a man marvelously blessed of God, blessed because he honored God, because he served God, because he testified about God, because he was a living, walking example of what God could do in a man’s life. Job had so walked before God, so obeyed God, so listened to the dictates of the voice of God that God could afford to bless him. He had many cattle, …
