Digging Wells: Part 2

Read Genesis 26:12–28. The two wells just spoken of, Sitnah and Esek, were Isaac’s own attempts and flesh attempts at that, at well digging. When he opened up the old wells that his father had dug everything was alright, but when he tried to dig in his own way the result was a well of contention and another of hatred. Now he turns his back on these two wells and the 22nd verse says “he removed from thence.” That is the best way I know, out of a situation like the one in which Isaac found himself. Paul greatly rebukes … Read More >

Life At Its Best

An addressed delivered by Harry Ironside at Wheaton College. The text I have in mind for this message is found in the book of Genesis, chapter 27, the last seven words of verse 46: “What good shall my life do me?” You may or may not recall the connection and the circumstances under which these words were uttered. They were spoken querulously by a disgruntled mother-in-law who felt that her eldest son had made a fatal mistake in a double matrimonial venture. As Mark Twain said of Brigham Young, “He loved not wisely but too many.” And they were both … 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 >

Conflict Of The Ages Between The Woman's Seed And Serpent

The dragon stood before the woman,…to devour her child.”—Revelation 12:4 This attitude on the part of Satan indicates persistent, relentless and aggressive opposition to the purposes of God in human redemption, to be accomplished through the seed of the woman. May we go back to the third chapter of Genesis, where the great conflict of the ages begins, and read a few verses. “Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman. Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of … Read More >

A Man Who Was Desperate

Notes on a message given by Pastor Alan Redpath in The Moody Church on July 17, 1955. I will not let thee go except thou bless me…What is thy name?…Jacob…and he blessed him there” (Genesis 32:6). “No more Jacob, but Israel” was the blessing which God gave that day. You, of course, know that in the Bible there is an immense significance in the name that is given to a man. You know the meaning of the word “Jacob.” It means deceiver, supplanter. You know the meaning of the word “Israel.” It means prince with God. Something happened in that … Read More >

Untraveled Tracks

And as he passed over Penuel the sun rose upon him, and he halted upon his thigh.”—Genesis 32:31 The topic this morning is Untraveled Tracks, and here is one in this 31st verse before us, a path that Jacob had never trod before,—trodden by a man who had never lived before; for he was a new man with a new name as he started out upon his journey; and it says “as he passed over Penuel the sun rose upon him.” As he entered into this new path after his struggle and after the victory, the sun rose upon him. … Read More >

Digging Wells: Part 1

You will wonder what I mean by this subject, “Digging Wells.” Let me tell you that to me it means very much. I will never forget the time I dug my first well. I am speaking now not of a natural but a spiritual well, and one is just as real as the other. Are you here this morning all dried up in your experience, then let me tell you about well digging. Here is my first experience. I was called to preach for ten days in a town in Canada, and everything seemed to be booming spiritually when I … Read More >

A Perfecting Program

I am the Almighty God; walk before me and be thou perfect” (Genesis 17:1). God always sounds out His resources before he asks anything of any man. His is the “I am” before He calls Moses to take the people out of Egypt and unto Canaan land. He is the “I am” and “The Almighty God” before He calls Abraham to leave his own people, his own country, his own plans, his own choices, his own ways and walk before Him and be perfect. Whenever God calls for a great conquest He shows His own glory, for all that God … Read More >

God's Great Work For Sinners

And it came to pass after these things, that God did tempt Abraham, and said unto him, Abraham: and he said, Behold, here I am. “And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of. “And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the wood for the burnt offering, and … Read More >

Jehovah-Jireh

And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold, behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns; and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son. “And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovah-jireh; as it is said to this day, In the mount of the Lord it shall be seen. “And the angel of the Lord called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time. “And said, By myself have I sworn, saith the Lord; for because thou hast done this thing, … Read More >
