The Seven Joys Of The Believer In Jesus Christ

Rejoice always.”—1 Thessalonians 5:16 In the King James Version, this text reads, “Rejoice evermore,” but the Revised Version (a more accurate rendering), reads, “Rejoice always. “If I should ask you want the shortest verse in the Bible is, a great sea of hands would go and you would say, “John 11:35, ‘Jesus wept.’” Well, that is so in the English version, but in the Greek that verse has sixteen letters, while our text has only fourteen letters; so in the Greek this is a shorter verse than “Jesus wept.” I want you to read the verse in its connection: “Rejoice … Read More >

Diseases Of The Heart

Before men ever began to study psychology, before a college ever established a chair of psychology, before scientists ever delved into the powers and functions of a human heart, God had given an explanation of the whole human make-up. Before men ever learned that there was something besides the physical, besides a disposition, and called it an “over-soul” or an “under-soul” or a “sub-conscious self” or by any other name, God had written what it was. God calls the human being a trinity. His word says in 1 Thessalonians 5:23: “I pray God your whole spirit and souland body … Read More >

The Called Of Jesus Christ

Among whom are ye also the called of Jesus Christ” (Romans 1:6). When something is important, it has many words attached to it. Just think of the thousands of words attached to the automobile industry, for example, or to the music trade. A hi-fi addict has a vocabulary all his own, and that vocabulary is important to him. Even a hunter or a fisherman will have words and terms that are meaningful only to his crowd. God’s people are important to God; and because they are important, He has many names for them. Sometimes He simply calls us “children.” Other … Read More >

The King Is Coming

The King is Coming and We’ll be there for His Return! At this time of year we look back to the manger, to the first appearance of the Son of God as man born of a woman, God in the flesh. But even as we look back, we should also look forward to His bodily return, when He will come a second time to bring us our ultimate salvation. Please keep in mind that the physical Jesus who was laid in a manger as a baby, and who walked the earth as a man, is the same physical Jesus who … Read More >

Divorce And Remarriage

The Bible not only presents divine ideals but also sin-caused realities. In the Old Testament, divorce and remarriage were permitted under specific regulations. The question is whether or not any of these guidelines are applicable today within the context of the New Testament. Two instances demonstrate that divorce can, under certain conditions, be considered scriptural today.  1. When One Partner Develops a Pattern of Sexual Immorality Christ said, “And I say to you: whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, (fornication) and marries another, commits adultery” (Matthew 19:9).  Several observations should be noted: (1) A spouse who divorces … Read More >

Comments on 1 Thessalonians 5

“Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.” I don’t know what you are drunk with, but I know many people are drunk with a great many things today—some staggering ideals, some colossal foolishness, or something else. There is more in this word “sober” than simply abstaining from some intoxicating liquor. It is a wonderful thing to have a sober mind and not let yourself be carried away by the drunken spirit of our day, but to stand with Jesus Christ, while the tide is going the other way. Ask God for a … Read More >

Seven Reasons Why Jesus Died

It is surprising that after nineteen hundred years of Gospel light and testimony, one often finds professing Christians who manifest great ignorance in regard to the most important fundamental truths of the Word of God. I do not know how many times I have had people come to me—people who had faith in Christ—and put the question in all seriousness, “Just why did Christ have to die in order that we might be saved?” I want to show from the Scripture seven very clear, definite reasons for which Jesus died. The first Scripture is found in 1 Corinthians 15. In … Read More >

The Woman And The Dragon

They overcame him by the Blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony.”—Revelation 12:11 Notes of a message given by Pastor Alan Redpath in The Moody Church on Sunday, December 19, 1954. Amidst the world-struggle for survival, it is important that we should understand the real nature of the battle in which we, as Christians, are engaged. Paul said in Ephesians 6:12, “We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” I am not sure if we have begun … Read More >

The Authority Of The Holy Scriptures

But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience, persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me. Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; and that from a child thou hast known the holy … Read More >

Freedom From Sexual Sin

Sadly, some believers sincerely question whether or not viewing pornography is wrong at all. But the Scriptures are blunt (Matthew 5:28; 1 Corinthians 6:18-20; 1 John 2:16; Philippians 4:8; Hebrews 13:4; 1 Thessalonians 4:3-6). God’s standard is purity of heart, for such shall see God (Matthew 5:8). The only way to find freedom from sexual bondage is by utilizing the resources that God has given us—the Word and the Church. We believe that although one can fall into the trap of pornography without any help, we cannot come out of this unclean practice without help from others. People who minister to … Read More >
