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 >

Sealed With The Holy Spirit

In whom ye also trusted, 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, which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.”—Ephesians 1:13-14 You will notice that these verses carry us back in thought to what has immediately preceded in the twelfth verse. There the apostle Paul says, “That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ,” and he speaks as a … Read More >

The Price And Privilege Of Discipleship

Notes of a message given on Sunday morning, by Pastor Alan Redpath on September 11, 1955. We have seen in the Beatitudes, the genuine Christian—the true citizen of the Kingdom—growing into maturity. We have seen him as he is in his own consciousness, in his own longings, and what he can become by the transforming power of the Holy Spirit. We have also seen the resultant impact such a life will have upon the world. Some say our text is the 8th Beatitude completing the Octave. Others see it in a different light. Up to this point it has been … Read More >

Cost Of Living

…All things come of thee, and of thine own have we given thee…O Lord our God, all this store that we have prepared to build thee an house for thine holy name cometh of thine hand, and is all thine own”—1 Chronicles 29:14-16 Money can be a great asset or liability. The Bible says, “The love of money is the root of all evil,” and we might add, the proper use of money is the root of great good. Some men, like Abraham and Job, are rich and honest; others are rich because they are dishonest. Some are poor because … Read More >

How Dr. James M. Gray Found Christ

I was a member of a Christian household, and brought up in a Christian family—nominally so, at least. My life as a boy was moral and obedient, and I regularly attended church. At fourteen years of age, when I knew “the creed, the Lord’s prayer, and the ten commandments” I was “confirmed in the most holy faith” by a Bishop of my church; and was taught in my Catechism that I had then become “a child of God, a member of Christ, and an inheritor of the Kingdom of Heaven.” But this I do not now believe, nor have I … Read More >

How Do You Know When You Reach The Point Of No Return?

The question under consideration is an interesting one: “How do you know when you reach the point of no return in your Christian life? I would say, to begin with, that the personal commitment of a life to the Lord Jesus is the only basis of salvation. Salvation is not a statement of doctrine; it is a surrender to a Person. Of course, you believe right, or you cannot live right. But you can believe right and still not be saved. Personal salvation must involve commitment, and you can find no other basis of salvation in the New Testament. “What … Read More >

The Word Of Prophecy

The world is once again interested in prophecy. People are afraid to face the future, and they ignorantly grasp every straw that comes along. Our bookstores have shelves filled with books on Satan worship, fortune telling, black magic, and prophecy. The Christian does not have to get his information from Hell, because God has given us “the sure Word of prophecy.” When the Bible was first written, at least one-fourth of it was prophetic. In fact, one of the outstanding proofs of the divine inspiration of the Bible is the fact of fulfilled prophecy. Peter exhorts us to “take heed” … Read More >

The Greatest Work In The World!

There are many good things that a man can do in the world today. But I have a conviction that the greatest work any of us can do is to help lead people to Jesus Christ. You do not have to be a “full-time Christian worker” to be a soul-winner. In fact, many of our greatest soul-winners are dedicated men and women who hold “ordinary” occupations, but who use every opportunity to witness for Christ. We use the word “soul-winner” so often, and yet I wonder if we really know what it means? Perhaps it would be helpful to us … Read More >

Living Like Eagles

If you were to mention the eagle to a Jew in Jesus’ day, you would probably get scorn and anger in return. At that time, the eagle was the symbol of the Roman legions; and no loyal Jew wanted his nation controlled by a foreign power. But if you were to mention the eagle to an Old Testament Jew, he would most likely respond with a smile of joy. Why? Because to the believer in the Old Testament days, the eagle was a symbol of God’s gracious care for His people, Israel. God wants us to live like eagles. Not … Read More >
