The Holy Ghost Said

“The Holy Ghost said.”—Acts 13:2 He speaks. Oh that the Church of today would hear His voice! He is not an influence. He is a Person speaking. In this instance cited, He said, “Separate me Barnabas and Paul for the work whereunto I have called them” (verse 2). The work is in His hands and the men must be also. The work is in His hands still, but where are the separated men? What a wealth of work waits to be done! The fields are white to harvest, but where are the reapers? It is from just such group prayer … Read More >

Essential Equipment

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. You may read this book through and … Read More >

A Faithful God and Faithful Witness

(Helpful to Sunday School Lesson of February 15, 1920, Acts 10:30–48) “Behold, a man stood.” Cornelius did not know the Holy Ghost as yet, and it was necessary for God to use an angel. God speaks through the saints by the Holy Spirit. How important it is that we should thoroughly recognize this. Jesus says, “My sheep hear my voice.” Again, the Scripture says, “As many as are led by the spirit of God they are the sons of God.” How many sad hearts are calling themselves Christians today, who must be led about by bit and bridle. There are … Read More >

Grieving The Holy Spirit

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 malice.” … Read More >

The Ministry of the Holy Spirit

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 a … Read More >

The Spirit's Work

Address delivered at the 1923 Annual Missionary Rally. This afternoon I am going to speak on the work of the Holy Spirit of God in the life of the believer. There are two aspects of the work of the Spirit: the work that He does in the unsaved in convincing of sin, of righteousness and of judgment, and the work that He does in the saved person in giving power, direction and efficiency as soul winners. The work of the Spirit in fitting for soul winning work, after all, means making a missionary, whether at home or abroad. The matter … Read More >

As He

The Apostle John seems very fond of these two words. Six times in his first epistle he uses these two words. He uses them in trying to show the believer’s relation to the blessed Lord Jesus. The seventh verse of this first epistle reads like this: “But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light,” etc. The natural heart cries out, “How can this be, seeing He is the Son of God?” Yes, He was the second person of the glorious Trinity; but when He was baptized in Jordan the Holy Spirit came upon Him. You … Read More >

Holy Ghost Power

(Helpful to Sunday School Lesson of February 1, 1920, Acts 8:4–39) “Scattered abroad.” This sounds like a calamity; but what looks like a calamity to the world is God’s method of sowing the seed. Men who knew nothing about seed would say the farmer is throwing it away as he reaches into his bag and scatters it abroad; but it will come up if it die and bear much fruit. Persecution has always been followed by power in the Church. They put Jesus to death, but fifty days from His death one hundred and twenty were filled with Him and … Read More >

Grieving The Holy Spirit

Grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.”—Ephesians 4:30 The “sealing” of the Holy Spirit is referred to in the first chapter, verse 13, and the reference there is to the experience that came to the church at Ephesus at its beginning, as recorded in the 19th chapter of Acts. It was to this experience Paul referred when he said: “After that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that Holy Spirit of promise.” And here … Read More >

Can Pentecost Be Repeated?

Text: Acts 10:44, “The Holy Spirit fell on all them which heard the word.” You know that Pentecost, as far as the day is concerned, was a sacred Jewish feast day. It was the feast of the “first fruits,” and was second only in importance to the Feast of the Passover, but to the Christian it is sacred for quite another reason. We commemorate that day because it is the birthday of the Christian Church. There was no church prior to the day of Pentecost. The first reference to the Church is found in Matthew 16:18. Jesus there promised that … Read More >
