1957-05 Philpott.jpg

In Memory of Our Beloved Dr. Philpott

By Anonymous

On April 1, 1957, in his 92nd year, Dr. P.W. Philpott, former pastor of The Moody Church, was called home to be with the Lord. The news of Dr. Philpott’s passing was received with a deep sense of personal loss by all the members of The Moody Church. Though conscious of this loss, nevertheless, we do regard his homegoing as a glorious triumph and an hour of great victory.

From the time that Dr. Philpott was saved as a young man of eighteen, the Lord directed his steps towards the Gospel ministry. From that early beginning until the very end …

The Source Of Security

By Dr. Alan Redpath

We have been studying a little bit in the prophecy of Isaiah, and I want to ask you to turn to Isaiah 26, the first two verses: “In that day shall this song be sung in the land of Judah; We have a strong city; salvation will God appoint for walls and bulwarks. Open ye the gates, that the righteous nation which keepeth the truth may enter in.”

You know, this book of Isaiah is just full of some thrilling and wonderful pictures of God’s plan of deliverance for you and me. This isn’t simply an ancient book of prophecy …

The Fear Of God

By Dr. Alan Redpath

Sanctify the LORD of hosts himself; and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread. And he shall be for a sanctuary; but for a stone of stumbling and for a rock of offence.”—Isaiah 8:13–14

The thought that fear has any part to play in vital Christian experience is really foreign to most people. The general and popular presentation of the Gospel is that of the love of God revealed to us on the cross, a love which casts out every fear, and by resting in that love and by believing in the Lord Jesus Christ we …

The Purpose Of Bethlehem

By Dr. Alan Redpath

Sermon preached by Pastor Alan Redpath in The Moody Church on Sunday morning, December 22, 1957.

“But when the fulness of time was come, God sent forth his Son, born of a woman, born under the law that he might redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.”—Galatians 4:4–5

These verses come right in the center of a tremendous argument which Paul was bringing to the Christians in Galatia. Perhaps you remember that he was so deeply concerned for them because even though they were believers, they were in great danger of being …

A Forgotten God

By Dr. Alan Redpath

For Israel hath forgotten his Maker, and buildeth temples; and Judah hath multiplied fenced cities; but I will send a fire upon his cities, and it shall devour the palaces thereof.”—Hosea 8:14

Hosea 8:14 is the voice of Jehovah speaking to His people and ringing down through the centuries to each of us.

I believe that what I have to say, in the name of the Lord, has something for everyone of us. I have lived for over four years in this country now—a very short time compared with most of you—yet long enough to feel its pulse, to love …

The Exchanged Life In Action

By Dr. Alan Redpath

Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.”—Hebrews 12:1–2

I want to bring to you a message which might be, I trust, of some help to those especially …

1957-11 Question Answer.jpg

A Question Without An Answer

By Dr. Alan Redpath

For what shall it profit a man if he shall gain the whole world and lose his own soul?”—Mark 8:36

I suppose that question must be hypothetical. It is quite impossible for anybody ever to gain the world. You might get a bit of it, you might even get quite a lot of it, but you certainly could never have all of it. Just suppose you could. The Lord Jesus puts in one scale the world in its entirety and on the other scale He puts the soul in its eternity. He puts the two side by side and says, …

The Victorious Christ

By Dr. Alan Redpath

Let me ask you to fasten your thinking just for a moment upon the twenty-first verse of this second chapter of John’s Gospel. “He spake of the temple of his body.”

I think it is immensely significant that the Lord Jesus Christ spoke of the temple of His body in the temple of the Jews. It was there in the house of God, there in the traditional place of worship, the temple, in which Jesus spoke of the temple of His body.

You remember that the temple had three divisions in it. There was an outer court which was open to …

On To Maturity

By Dr. Alan Redpath

In the fourth chapter of Paul’s letter to the Ephesians you will find our text for this message—Ephesians chapter four, verses eleven through thirteen.

And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;

For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ;

Till we all come into the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ.”

I am sure that everybody today …

The Cross And Fruitfulness

By Dr. Alan Redpath

Message preached by Pastor Alan Redpath at the closing service of the Foreign Missionary Rally, May 5, 1957.

Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.”—John 12:24

I have only four words for my text and there are only ten letters in them all put together, but I tell you, my friend, that these four words are the most vital and fundamental in all Christian experience—“But if it die.” And I want to bring you in the name of the Lord Jesus just right there, …
