1962-09 But God.jpg

But God…

By Dr. Alan Redpath

My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion forever.”—Psalm 73:26

Among the many wonderful things in the book of Psalms, there is nothing in my mind more wonderful than the fact that this book is such a transparent account of the inner dealing of a soul with God. You have history books and prophetic books in the Bible, but here you have a book which just seems to draw the veil aside to let you see something of the inner conflict of the spirit as the man talks with …

The Key To Fruitfulness

By Dr. Alan Redpath

In a little wrath I hid my face from thee for a moment; but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on thee, saith the LORD thy Redeemer”—Isaiah 54:8.

Last Sunday was Easter Day. There were present in this church many who, more than likely, had not been with us or at any church since the previous Easter Day, and undoubtedly some who did not know Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord. As best I knew how, though always I admit the inadequacy of it, I sought to preach what I believed to be the essence of the Gospel …

Portrait Of Zaccheus

By Dwight L. Moody

Take the case of Zaccheus. He was looking for the Saviour, and the Saviour was looking for him, and what a delightful time it was when they met!

This man was small of stature, and had a poor chance in a crowd. I can imagine the little man trying to get one glimpse at Jesus, and you can see him standing on tiptoe, but he can’t see Him, the crowd is so great. Then he runs on ahead and climbs a sycamore tree, where he thinks he can hide, for he doesn’t like to be seen looking after Christ. By …

God Can Forgive Anything Except…

By Dr. Alan Redpath

I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions, and, as a cloud, thy sins; return unto me; for I have redeemed thee.”—Isaiah 44:22

Isaiah is always known by every Bible student as the evangelical prophet. That is not only because of what he had to say about the coming of the Lord Jesus, but because running right through this prophecy there is the Gospel of the grace of God which it is our delight to preach and to know. Over and over again it stands out so clearly, and perhaps nowhere more so than in this …

Battling With God

By Dr. Alan Redpath

Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth. Shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it, What makest thou? Or thy work, He hath no hands?”—Isaiah 45:9

This is the answer of heaven to a man who is contending with God. To catch the full import of that verse, I would remind you of the context. Isaiah, under the inspiration of the Spirit of God, is speaking of a day when a heathen king would be used as an instrument of God to deliver His people from …

1962-06 Grieving Holy Spirit.jpg

Grieving The Holy Spirit

By Dwight L. Moody

And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.” Bear in mind these words were written to the church at Ephesus. A great many have the idea that it is the unconverted that grieve the Holy Spirit; but here it certainly is the Church. To be sure, a man that resists the Holy Spirit may grieve Him by not letting Him into his heart; but this was written to the Church.

Again, “Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamor, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all …

1962-10 Crooked Woman.jpg

The Crooked Woman

By Dr. Alan Redpath

Pastor Redpath’s first sermon at The Moody Church from September 20, 1953.

As my first message of this pastorate I purpose to set before us what is the primary objective in the coming years of my ministry, as God helps us and gives us grace. I believe no more fitting passage of Scripture could be used for this purpose than the thirteenth chapter of St. Luke’s Gospel beginning at the tenth verse—the story of a woman with a “spirit of infirmity.”

And he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the sabbath.

And behold, there was a woman …

A Ministry Which Must Be Exercised

By Dr. Alan Redpath

And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundation of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.”—Isaiah 58:12

On the eve of the Crusade which is about to commence in this city I believe we stand poised on the brink of what might well be the greatest event in all the history of the church in Chicago. We have considered on two previous Sundays the message that we are to proclaim, the miracles that we must …

God's Remedy For Sin

By Dr. Alan Redpath

All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way, and the Lord hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all.”—Isaiah 53:6

I want to speak, as the Holy Spirit shall enable me, on the great subject of God’s remedy for sin, which is appropriate in view of the Crusade which is to come; it is appropriate in view of this particular season of the year; but most of all it is appropriate because of the constant personal need in every one of our lives. May He so guide me in …

The Church's Marching Orders

By Dr. Alan Redpath

Here again is sounded a great summons from heaven to the people of God concerning their exodus from the captivity of Babylon. It was not the first time that God has said this to them, for the Lord has said exactly the same thing: “Go ye forth of Babylon, flee ye from the Chaldeans, with a voice of singing declare ye, tell this, utter it even to the end of the earth; say ye, The Lord hath redeemed his servant Jacob” (Isaiah 48:23). Here is the prophet anticipating a day when God is going to lead His people out …
