The Last Act

“To this end was the Son of God manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.” —1 John 3:8 It is absolutely necessary for Jesus Himself to return to this earth, in order to finish the task that He set out to do, as stated in this text. Here on the earth, is where God has been blasphemed, here is where men have sinned, here is where the devil has had his run as the god of this world, here is where he is prince of the power of the air, and “goeth about as a roaring lion, … Read More >

The Lord's Call

(Helpful to Sunday School Lesson of May 2, 1920, 1 Samuel 1:24–28; 3:1–21) “The Lord called Samuel.” It is easy to understand that this was not a voice which others could hear or Eli could have heard it. The voice was very clear indeed to Samuel; Samuel was sure that someone had called him. This Scripture should show us that while others may be used of the Lord in clearing up our call and proving to us that it is the Lord and not man that is calling, yet the call must be heard by the one called and by … Read More >

To Obey is Better than Sacrifice

Message given at The Moody Church by Rev. Vance Havner, D.D. of Greensboro, N.C. Turn to the 15th chapter of 1 Samuel and I want to read about King Saul and a very tragic chapter in his life. “Samuel also said unto Saul, The Lord sent me to anoint thee to be king over his people, over Israel: now therefore hearken thou unto the voice of the words of the Lord. Thus saith the Lord of hosts, I remember that which Amalek did to Israel, how he laid wait for him in the way, when he came up from Egypt. … 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 to … 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 >

A Bible Revival

The books of Ezra and Nehemiah, the first post-captivity books, belong to each other. Zerubbabel led the first company of exiles back to the land of promise. Eighty years later he was followed by Ezra with a company of probably fifty thousand. Ezra’s mission was purely religious. He brought gifts to the temple and sought to restore the worship of the fathers and revive the spiritual life of the nation. He was faced with very discouraging conditions, for the Jews had intermarried with the heathen and corrupt and idolatrous practices had been introduced which created a great problem. The book … Read More >

Sonship And Discipleship

“And there went great multitudes with him: and he turned, and said unto them, If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple. For whosoever doth not bear his cross and come after me, cannot be my disciple. For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it? Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, … Read More >

The Man God Uses

“Have I not commanded thee, Be strong and of a good courage, be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed, for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.”—Joshua 1:9 We have been thinking about the inner meaning of this book of Joshua. The command of God was, “Go over this Jordan, thou and this people, into the land which I have given thee.” This opened up before us the possibility of life on a higher plane, deliverance from a wilderness experience of defeat into the experience of victory, even though it be through warfare and conflict. As we … 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 >

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. No sooner … Read More >
