Essential Equipment

By Dr. Alan Redpath

Ye shall receive power after the Holy Ghost is come upon you.”—Acts 1:8

This is the first of a series of messages from the book called “The Acts of the Apostles.” My purpose is not that we should study the early missionary career of the church of the New Testament, but that we should discover the secret of her power. From many angles this book is of great value to us. It has a historical value because, as a book of history, it is authentic, but as such it is merely a fragment.

The Scope Of Temptation

By Dr. Alan Redpath

Notes on the first of three messages on temptation.

Let us give serious consideration to this passage of Scripture, containing an account, which must have been given by our Lord Himself, of the temptation He endured in the wilderness. We see Him emerging from thirty years of private life. Surely He had known temptation there, too, and often Satan must have flung his insinuating darts into His mind concerning the love of God and the unfairness of God who allowed His Son to suffer such poverty. But upon those thirty years the Father has smiled with satisfaction and said, “This …

Silencing The Tempter

By Dr. Alan Redpath

Notes of the second of three messages on temptation.

We considered last month the tremendous scope of the temptation of our Lord—not an area that touches us that has not first touched Him, and been overthrown by Him. Therefore He has the answer to every battle any of us ever have to fight. 

Now we are to think of the way in which He silenced the tempter; how He hurled back every fiery dart, and emerged from the conflict utterly victorious. I believe that the devil would have avoided that encounter if he could. It is not the record …

The Judgments Of God

By Dr. Alan Redpath

The Appointed Judge (Revelation Chapter One)

In commencing a series of messages based on the book of Revelation, it is important to make one or two preliminary observations. We must be careful that we don’t miss seeing the wood for the trees, and lose the great message of the book in grappling with points of interpretation.

I. Setting Of The Book.

It is the one prophetic book of the New Testament. The Bible, which began with the story of creation, soon records the fact of the Fall, and then there follows the long story of human sin into which is …

Prayer: The Christian's Weapon

By Dr. Alan Redpath

Notes of an address given by Pastor Alan Redpath at the Church House, Westminster, during the World Evangelical Alliance Week of Prayer, 1950.

I am sure that there is an increasing recognition on the part of the church as a whole that evangelism must take a predominant part in her life. There are widely different meanings, of course, which are given to that word evangelism, but, nevertheless, I see signs everywhere that the church is rising to the recognition of the fact that she must witness to Christ. And, furthermore, she is rising increasingly to a recognition of the fact …

Gifts Of An Ascended Lord

By Dr. Alan Redpath

The ascension of our Lord Jesus was a climax to His life here on Earth. He entered into heaven in His own right, in the merit of His own perfection. He bore the marks of sin and suffering, for He who ascended into the hill of the Lord to stand in His holy place had clean hands and a pure heart; but they were wounded hands and it was a broken heart. The only way to the Throne was by the Cross, but the only outcome of the Cross was the crowning of Jesus as Lord.

So He received that …

The Sequel To Temptation

By Dr. Alan Redpath

Notes of the third of three messages on temptation.

In previous articles we have considered the inclusive scope of the temptation of our Lord. Every area of it we can ever know He has faced. Then we saw how He silenced the tempter in every realm, seeing him retreat vanquished, and Jesus coming out unscathed.

Now let us look at the sequel to this great combat. Try to forget just for a moment what you know about our Lord’s subsequent life, and see Him now at the end of the temptation. Satan has withdrawn and Jesus is left alone. He …

The Road To Revival

By Dr. Alan Redpath

I suppose first and foremost, that a church fellowship has been called into being in order that, through every one of its members redeemed by the blood of Christ and indwelt by His Spirit, there might be made manifest through the church the glory of the Lord Jesus Christ, that whether you be in workshop or factory, home, business, hospital, wherever it may be, whenever others come in contact with you and me they should be conscious that they are in the presence of Christ who indwells us. Then surely, a church, a fellowship is called together in order that …

The Principles Of Growth

By Dr. Alan Redpath

He shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him” (Isaiah 53:2).

This thing that ought to concern us more than anything else in the Christian life, both for ourselves individually and for our church, is constantly to be seeking to recognize evidences of growth. As we look back upon life, as we trace the milestone of spiritual experiences, to what extent can we see that there has been …

1956-07 Eternal Distinction.jpg

Eternal Distinction

By Eric Crichton

In the first thirteen verses of Matthew 25, we find recorded one of the final public messages of our Lord’s earthly ministry.

Before looking at the actual substance of this passage, we should note two particular things about it.

First—our Lord is here speaking about the kingdom of heaven (verse 1). This expression “the kingdom of heaven” is an inclusive term embracing all of Christendom. It includes the church visible, i.e., the organized church throughout the world and it includes the church invisible, i.e., the true church, the mystical body of Christ.

Second—in speaking of the kingdom of …
