We Persuade Men

Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men” —2 Corinthians 5:11 Now when God picked out Abraham as the Father of the Faithful, and the one to be the head of His chosen people, the Jews, He took a look at his faith, tested that faith, and found that Abraham would mind Him. Abraham would obey without argument. He picked him, too, as He said, because “I know him, that he will command his children after him.” Abraham’s children had to mind. Has the great truth that you will have to suffer for your disobedience to … Read More >

The Divine Logic Of Foreign Missions

By Rev. F.C.H. Dreyer, Retired Moody Church Missionary Worldwide Christian missions are not founded on emotion, altruism, or expediency, but upon the transcendent love and the eternal purpose of God. Those who deny the lordship of Christ and reject the authority of the Scriptures have no urge to carry the Gospel to other parts of the world. They may look on missions as pious, well-intentioned undertakings, which afford outlets for philanthropic instincts in social service but otherwise they will see little foreign missionary work to interest realistic men and women of today. But those who accept the authority … Read More >

Strength For Service

We have a revival in my church at Portland, Oregon. I have seen hundreds of people come to the Lord during the past six weeks. I do not feel a bit strange this morning because we are going to have a revival here today. All my concern is that I, with you, should get where the Lord can save the people, and you know where that place is that we must get in order to have Him save the people. That place is down out of sight. I getting stirred up myself will not do anything. And you stirring up … Read More >

The Sure Way To Peace

O that thou hadst hearkened to my commandments! Then had thy peace been as a river, and thy righteousness as the waves of the sea”—Isaiah 48:18 There is something about the very tone and content that claims my immediate attention, for here is a lament from the heart of God. There is a suggestion here that things might not have been what they are, that they needn’t have been what they have been, if only I had hearkened unto His command. There is a suggestion too that this word is not spoken to us by some ruthless dictator seeking … Read More >

Baptism

Baptism is one of the central events of a believer’s Christian life. Foreshadowed by the ritual cleansings performed by the Jewish community and the baptism of repentance administered by John the Baptist, Christian baptism is commanded for every believer. The Scripture institutes this act as an important ordinance in our life of obedient testimony (Matthew 28:19, Mark 16:16, Romans 6:4). What should the mode be? Sprinkling, pouring, and immersing are used, but biblically, baptism by immersion is preferable, although sickness and immobility may require another method. Baptism is usually performed by someone of spiritual authority within the … Read More >

God's Way Of Deliverance

On The Hour of Decision program recently, a man saved during the Greater London Crusade said that in the course of a service he didn’t so much notice what Billy Graham was saying—all he became conscious of was a voice speaking to his heart and claiming his decision, his surrender, and there could be no possible resistance to it. I wonder what it is that brings a life into living touch with Christ. What is it that makes a service so different? Well, it is just when God speaks to the heart. I believe that sort of thing happens by … Read More >

The Boy Christ Among The Doctors

Now his parents went to Jerusalem every year at the feast of the Passover. And when he was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem after the custom of the feast. And when they had fulfilled the days, as they returned, the child Jesus tarried behind in Jerusalem; and Joseph and his mother knew not of it. But they, supposing him to have been in the company, went a day’s journey; and they sought him among their kinsfolk and acquaintance. And when they found him not, they turned back again to Jerusalem, seeking him. And it came to pass … Read More >

The Fifth Commandment

There is a need for constant emphasis upon the relation of the law given to Israel and to us today. It is not merely dispensational, but it is the blueprint for happiness. Obedience always brings harmony with the purpose of God, and in relationships to others, for holiness and happiness are inseparable. The law was given to Israel on the basis of redemption. Exodus 20:2, “I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.” Here was the basis of all further relationships with the Redeemer … Read More >

Sin In The Camp

But the children of Israel committed a trespass in the accursed thing: for Achan, the son of Carmi, the son of Zabdi, the son of Zerah, of the tribe of Judah, took of the accursed thing: and the anger of the Lord was kindled against the children of Israel. And Joshua sent men from Jericho to Ai, which is beside Beth-aven, on the east side of Beth-el, and spake unto them, saying, Go up and view the country. And the men went up and viewed Ai. And they returned to Joshua, and said unto him, Let not all the people go up … Read More >
