The Great Essential

By Milford Hall Lyon

Ye must be born again.”—John 3:7

During the Napoleon wars there met one night on a raft in the middle of a German river the emperors of France and Russia for a conference, the result of which was to change the map of Europe. But centuries before there was a far greater conference. It was between Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews, and Jesus Christ, the Son of God. The result of this conference was to change the fate of countless thousands of human souls.

It was no mere accident that the kind of a man that …

A Happy Man

By Dr. P.W. Philpott

Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.

Therefore the ungodly shall …

The Man Like You

By Dr. P.W. Philpott

Elijah was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain; and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.

And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.”—James 5:17-18

Elijah was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed, and he prayed again. No one can read the Bible with any degree of care without being impressed with the importance of prayer. Especially the kind of prayer that is referred …

The Living Word

By Pastor A.C. Dixon, D.D.

For the word of God is quick (alive) and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”—Hebrews 4:12

The words of great men are treasures. We read books to find out what they said. We look to the papers and magazines to learn the last utterances of the great leaders of science, politics or religion. How much more important a word of God. Suppose it could be proven that God, who …

To Hell And Back

By Frederic W. Farr, D.D.

In the fifteenth chapter of Luke’s Gospel there are three beautiful stories recorded that fell from the lips of our Divine Lord. These stories are of “A Lost Sheep,” “A Lost Coin,” and “A Lost Boy.”

There are certain interesting points of likeness and certain equally interesting points of difference. You will note an increase in the valuation of that which was lost. The sheep was one of a hundred. The coin was one of ten. The boy was one of two.

When the sheep went astray the shepherd left the flock in the fold and went …

An Unanswerable Question

By Dr. P.W. Philpott

A question asked by Christ, “For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?”Matthew 16:26.

Possibly you have observed that a great deal of the teaching of Jesus was by the method of interrogation. He was always asking questions. I find that during the last few days of His life, He asked upwards of fifty different questions of His disciples, such as, “Who do men say that I, the Son of man, am?”; “Who do …

Seducing Spirits: Spiritism vs. Scripture

By Dr. P.W. Philpott

I presume most of you have observed that there has been a very real revival in Spiritism during these last few years. The Great War through which the world has recently passed made this possible. This is especially true in England where there is hardly one home without its empty chair and where hearts long for fellowship with loved ones who have passed within the veil.

In his book, “Raymond,” which he named after his son slain in battle, Sir Oliver Lodge records the words of his wife, which he found written on a sheet of paper:

Raymond, darling …

God's Great Work For Sinners

By Dr. Joshua Gravett

And it came to pass after these things, that God did tempt Abraham, and said unto him, Abraham: and he said, Behold, here I am.

And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.

And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the wood for the burnt offering, and …

Our Sufficiency Is Of God

By Dr. P.W. Philpott

(Stenographically reported.) At the opening service of the ministry of Pastor P.W. Philpott [September 3, 1922], just before announcing his text, the great congregation arose and sang,  

Who is sufficient for these things?”—2 Corinthians 2:16

Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think anything as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God.”—2 Corinthians 3:5

In these two passages of Scripture we have a question and an answer. The question of the text is the question of my heart, and the answer to the text in the second passage, God’s answer, is …

The Atonement

By Dr. Frederic W. Farr

Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures.”—1 Corinthians 15:3

In the first part of this verse, Paul states his method and manner of preaching, and incidentally reveals the source and character of the ideal Gospel sermon. It is a transmitted message. “I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received.” The preacher does not originate it, he does not plagiarize it, he simply receives it from the risen Christ and delivers it to the waiting people. He cannot get it up. He has to pray it down.

Christianity is a historic …
