Through War Clouds To God

“Until the day dawn and the day star arise in your hearts.” The above phrase is taken from 2 Peter 1: 19, and it is to this phrase that we will direct our attention; but to get the proper setting, let me quote the entire verse: “We have a more sure word of prophecy, whereunto ye do well to take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts.” The war has not only brought dark clouds of heart sorrow, but clouds of doubt to men’s … Read More >

Add To Your Faith Virtue

“And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue.”—2 Peter 1:5 Someone has offered as a first help to failing lives this suggestion, “To think without confusion clearly.” If there ever was a day when people would have to have eyes in the back of their heads as well as in the front, as far as giving diligence is concerned, it is in our day. You have to watch diligently if you are going to find the right road to Glory. There are so many substitutes and substitutions that you have to go to God’s Word earnestly to … Read More >

Removing Rubbish

It is a source of great comfort to turn to the Bible and discover that all through history men of God, venturing upon service for God, have been confronted with the very same problems as we face today. Here Nehemiah, unmistakably called and commissioned to rebuild the wall of Jerusalem, having secured an army of willing helpers, now finds himself faced with discouragement of every kind. The opposition of Sanballat, Tobiah and Geshem, who have already launched their campaign of hate, has been faced realistically. The people have a mind to work, a heart to pray, an eye to watch. … 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 >

Love And Conduct

In a sophisticated civilization such as ours, here in the mid-twentieth century, we think of our conduct as a pretty highly polished way of life. We observe the rules for etiquette, congratulate our friends in their promotions, play it cool when we’re crossed so we don’t appear ruffled by all the idiots around us, and smooth over the weaknesses of our loved ones. We smile at people we dislike and exchange greetings with our enemies, invite the new neighbors in for coffee and give Thanksgiving baskets to the poor family on the other side of the tracks, and then pat … Read More >

The Great Atonement

“And Aaron shall lay both his hands upon the head of the live goat, and confess over him all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions in all their sins, putting them upon the head of the goat, and shall send him away by the hand of a fit man into the wilderness: And the goat shall bear upon him all their iniquities unto a land not inhabited: and he shall let go the goat in the wilderness.” —Leviticus 16:21–22 There are two great facts standing over against each other right from the very beginning of … Read More >

Comments on 2 Peter 1

“Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord.” Sometimes God adds, and sometimes He multiplies. Grace and peace are always multiplied. “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness.” “Hath given unto us”—we do not have to work for them. “through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and … Read More >

The Christian Family

Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives; while they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear. Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; but let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price. For … 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 Christian Worker And His Bible

In addressing you today I shall not attempt anything in the way of a regular sermon. As most of you know, I do not have a very orderly mind. I am not accustomed to that delightful homiletical style that so many of you have cultivated and which is so much enjoyed by others. My practice is generally to say just one thing after another as it comes to my mind, and today I want to talk to you about the use of the Bible in Christian work, and in doing this I shall attempt to bring before you certain things … Read More >
