What’s Your Name?

Sermon preached by Rev. George Duncan from London, England in The Moody Church on March 16, 1958. “Thy name shall be called no more Jacob.”—Genesis 32:28 I want to think out with you this fact—that there comes a time in God’s dealings with His own people when God says in effect, “It is time that we called a halt,” and that was what happened to Jacob that night. There had come a moment in his life when God said in effect, “Jacob, something has got to stop. We can’t go on any longer as we are,” and it may be … 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 >


The Menace Of Evolution

(An address given at the Second World Conference on Christian Fundamentals, May 20, 1920. Not revised by author). “God said.” —Genesis 1:3 “Yea, hath God said?” —Genesis 3:1 “In the midst of the throne…stood a Lamb as it had been slain.” —Revelation 5:6 The first verse of Genesis reads like a perfect order, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” There is no nebulosity about that. The heaven and the earth were clearly understood, and God made both of them perfect. The earth became without form and void. Dr. Anstey, in his fascinating book, “The Romance of … Read More >


Not You But God: The Acid Test Of The Exchanged Life

The expression “The Exchanged Life” has become familiar to us here at The Moody Church for it constitutes the emphasis of the regular ministry of this church. It crystallizes a great truth which has had revolutionary effects in the lives of many whose hearts have been gripped by this principle. In fact, it has brought us into a new principle of life entirely where we have discovered that “it is no longer I, but Christ,” and where we have discovered that the thing that counts is not our struggling and whipping the flesh to bring it into line, but rather … Read More >


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 >
