The Transformation of Satan

By Dr. Alan Redpath

Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.”—2 Corinthians 11:14

In the course of a series of messages from the second epistle of Paul to the Corinthian church under the title “Blessing out of Buffeting,” most of which have been expository, we now come to this text which I cannot possibly pass by. It is almost terrifying as well as tremendously challenging. When seen in the context of the whole teaching of the Word of God and in the light of current events, it is a verse which exposes the true nature of the battle …

Heaven's Law Of Supply And Demand

By Dr. Alan Redpath

And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work.”—2 Corinthians 9:8

This gem of a text comes right at the heart of an earnest appeal which Paul is making on behalf of the Christians at Jerusalem for financial help from the church at Corinth. He has boasted everywhere of the generosity of the Corinthian believers and now he writes very tactfully about the matter in case his boasting proved empty, and to ensure that their promised contribution would be ready …

The Peril of Self-Deception

By Dr. Alan Redpath

For though He was crucified through weakness, yet He liveth by the power of God. For we also are weak in Him, but we shall live with Him by the power of God toward you. Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?”—2 Corinthians 13:4, 5

In our studies of 2 Corinthians we have purposely made no attempt to analyze it. As a matter of fact, in a very real sense, this letter more than any …

God's Missionary Program

By Dr. Alan Redpath

For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich”—2 Corinthians 8:9

In this last half century we have seen two world wars, and these have rocked civilization to its very foundation; if ever we stood at a critical moment in world history we do today. One crisis seems to follow another until we live in such a moment when either the Lord must soon be coming back, or disaster confronts us. There is just one other alternative …

The Ministry of the Holy Spirit

By Dr. Alan Redpath

There is no teaching in the Bible about which there is so much muddled thinking as that of the Holy Spirit. I think that the least understood day in all the Christian calendar is Whit Sunday. I wouldn’t embarrass you, but I wonder how many of you could tell me when Whit Sunday really is? Let me just enlighten you a little. The word “Pentecost” means fifty days, and in the Acts of the Apostles 1:3 we read that, following the resurrection of our Lord from the tomb, He was seen of them forty days. And then there came …

The Most Important Question In Life

By Dr. Alan Redpath

He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Peter answereth and saith unto Him, Thou art the Christ.”—Mark 8:29

I would like you to observe first in the latter part of Mark 8 that here at the conclusion of the chapter we have a most unfortunate King James’ version chapter division. The Revised Version helps a bit by putting these divisions in paragraphs. The first verse of chapter 9 is really part of chapter 8, and indeed is the climax to it all: “He said unto them, Verily, I say unto you, That …

A Call to Consecration

By Dr. Alan Redpath

Wherefore, come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you…”—2 Corinthians 6:17

I am sure that a minister never appears in so forbidding a form, especially to young people, as he does when he comes to deal with this subject of separation, and with the relationship of the Christian to the world in which we live, and many folks are almost ready to account him an enemy of their happiness, and call him a kind of promoter of gloom and misery. Immediately they …

Some Missionary Priorities

By Dr. Alan Redpath

Now as He walked by the sea of Galilee, He saw Simon and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea, for they were fishers. And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men. And straightway they forsook their nets, and followed Him.”—Mark 1:16–18

The opening part of the chapter talks of things that happened to our Lord immediately preceding the opening of His public ministry. He was identified with the Father in heaven in all His purposes for men. He was baptized identifying Himself with …

Grounds For Confidence

By Dr. Alan Redpath

Lift up thy voice with strength; lift it up, be not afraid; say unto the cities of Judah, Behold your God!”—Isaiah 40:9

We are commencing a series of messages taken from the closing section of the prophecy of Isaiah under the general title “Faith for the Times.” Most of you will know that this prophecy is given in three sections. The first is in chapters 1 to 35 and is prophetic, the theme being one of condemnation; the second section is from chapters 36 to 39 and is historic, the theme being confiscation; and the third …

Demon Possession Today

By Dr. Alan Redpath

When Jesus was come out of the ship, immediately there met Him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit…And they come to Jesus, and see him that was possessed with the devil, and had the legion, sitting, and clothed, and in his right mind: and they were afraid.”—Mark 5:2, 15

Those two verses fling a boundary around one of the many instances in the New Testament in which our Lord encountered men possessed by evil spirits, and we must beware of imagining that we are facing in this story something that is exceptional, or …
