Visions, Near-Death & Out-of-Body Experiences

Throughout the world, many have described personal visions and near-death experiences, including conversations with Jesus, meetings with deceased loved ones, and even tours of heaven or hell. Such experiences are possible, but subject to deception and wishful delusions.  God did utilize visions in the Old Testament (Genesis 46:2; Numbers 12:6, 24:16; Psalm 89:19; Daniel 7:1-15; Isaiah 6:1-8), and the New Testament is abundant with examples as well (Acts 11:5, 16:9, 18:9; 2 Corinthians 12:1-4). The prophet Joel even speaks of the expanding frequency of visions in relation to the … Read More >

Seeing Things Invisible

The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of His calling, and what the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints.” Ephesians 1:18 The eyes of your understanding, the eyes of your heart. We see things invisible only with the heart. By invisible things I do not mean non-existing things. Sometimes folks see things that do not exist. The visionary is very different from the man with a vision. The visionary sees something that does not exist and that cannot by any possibility come into existence. But a … Read More >

Naaman, The Leper

The chief character in the Second Book of Kings, the fifth chapter, is a general, a great leader, a commander-in-chief of the armies of the country of Syria. His name is Naaman. He was the idol of the crowd, the hero of his day. Wherever he went, he would be feted and admired. He was the Eisenhower of his time. A man of great reputation; a man of great popularity; a man of great courage who had earned his right to popularity by the sheer bravery of his deeds on the battlefield. This man, however, was stricken with a very … Read More >

The Dangers Of Compromise

Messaged preached on Sunday morning, July 17, 1949 by The Moody Church’s Associate Pastor, H.A Hermansen. I want to consider with you an Old Testament story that comprises four chapters of the book of Second Chronicles; and for a  text I would like to read just the first eight verses of the nineteenth chapter. “And Jehoshaphat the king of Judah returned to his house in peace to Jerusalem. And Jehu the son of Hanani the seer went out to meet him, and said to the king Jehoshaphat, Shouldest thou help the ungodly, and love them that hate the Lord … Read More >

A Day Of Good Tidings

Then they said one to another, We do not well; this day is a day of good tidings, and we hold our peace: if we tarry till the morning light, some mischief will come upon us; now, therefore, come, that we may go and tell the king’s household.”—2 Kings 7:9 It was a dark day in Israel. The king of Syria had encircled the city of Samaria with a huge army, and so rigid was the siege and so severe the famine resulting from it that the head of an ass was a luxury, and sold for eighty … Read More >

Should Depictions Of Christ Be Forbidden?

Historically, Christians have proven contentious and confrontational concerning depicting Jesus in any form. Even since the flashpoints of iconoclasm (image/symbol breaking) during the early Middle Ages and the Reformation, the issue has never been completely without debate. We must approach this with an open mind and a respectable degree of tolerance.  Let’s begin by discussing the nature of idolatry in the Scriptures, and why it was consistently condemned. Let us examine Exodus 20:3-5. You shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above … Read More >

Do Demons Exist And What Are They Like?

Within in the church, and throughout broader society, a great deal of mysticism and superstition surrounds the reality, ability, and work of demons. Because of this haze of opinions, we must root our understanding in Scripture.  The Demonic Narrative Satan is the origin of evil, the father of lies (John 8:44).  Satan and his angels apparently still have access to heaven because during the tribulation period, there will be a war in heaven and they will be cast out unto the earth (Revelation 12:7-9).  Though crushed by the work of Christ two thousand years ago … Read More >

Renewed Vision

And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.” —Matthew 5:41 “Go with him twain.” I call your earnest attention to these words. I find in them a characteristic mark of a very unique people. The Word of God says that He desires a peculiar people, zealous of good works. The characteristic mark then, of this peculiar people, is this, if a man compels them to go a mile, they will go with him twain. That is, they do not only what they are expected to do, but, because of grace given, they … Read More >

Mixed Marriages

Preface “Bill will attend his church and I’ll go to mine.” “We’ll work it out as we go along.” “We truly love each other, and love conquers all.” These are some of the carefully chosen phrases used to launch a mixed marriage. But actual living proves the statements to be false. The irrefutable fact is that divorce occurs three times as often in mixed [faith] marriages as in marriages between members of the same faith. The thrill of loving and of being loved temporarily minimizes all obstacles to a mixed marriage. The enchanting ecstasy of marriage plans … Read More >

Preparation For Revival

Notes of a message given on Sunday morning, by Pastor Alan Redpath on October 9, 1955. As we approach another Keswick Convention many of us are deeply concerned that the Lord shall visit us with revival. Our hearts are hungry for Him, and continually the cry goes up to the throne: “Wilt thou not revive us again that thy people might rejoice in thee.” I want to be clear that we understand what we are asking Him to do—not simply to give us converts. Evangelism is one thing; revival is another. Evangelism is the constant duty of the church … Read More >
