Direction Decides Destiny

The key verse of this passage is 1 Corinthians 1:18 in which there is a change of tense in the R.V.: “For the preaching of the cross is to them that are perishing foolishness; but unto us that are being saved, it is the power of God.” 1. The Two Conditions Here Paul highlights for us two contrasting experiences of life: being saved and perishing. Neither of them is static, and both suggest movement, a journey, a pilgrimage. Both of them, however, are inclusive of the experiences of us all, and the category to which each one of us belongs … Read More >

Tramping Under Foot The Son Of God

Message given at The Moody Church by Rev. William A. Dean, Pastor of Aldan Union Church, Aldan, Pennsylvania. “For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he … Read More >

Soul Surgery: Part 6

Part 6 of a 9-part series by Pastor Alan Redpath given over the course of 1959. Confession In Soul Winning Last month our subject was winning of Confidence in soul-winning, and now this word Confession is really the logical conclusion which denotes that the personal worker has won through to the innermost need of the life of another. He has been privileged to see the room in his life, the door of which is usually closed and barred. Even where there is abundance of confidence the work may be a comparative failure because we have stopped short of the genuine … Read More >

Hiding From God

Over in India a woman stretches high, the full length of her body, and then falls flat on her face in the sand. Marking a little place with her fingertips she again rises to her full height, walks to the place marked in the sand, stretches high in the air, and falls flat on her face. This she continues to do, working, crawling, agonizing her way along hundreds of miles over the hot land. The sun rises, sets, rises again, goes to its zenith, and sets. Day after day she continues this torturous journey until she has covered some twelve … Read More >

The Fear Of God

Sanctify the LORD of hosts himself; and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread. And he shall be for a sanctuary; but for a stone of stumbling and for a rock of offence.”—Isaiah 8:13–14 The thought that fear has any part to play in vital Christian experience is really foreign to most people. The general and popular presentation of the Gospel is that of the love of God revealed to us on the cross, a love which casts out every fear, and by resting in that love and by believing in the Lord Jesus Christ we … Read More >

Accused But Vindicated

“He shewed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the LORD, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him.”—Zechariah 3:1 The immediate purpose of this vision given to the prophet is not hard to discover. Joshua, the priest in tattered garments is a picture of the Jewish people in their distress following the many years of captivity. He is ministering before the Lord in robes unfitted for his work. The old adversary of God’s people, the devil, chooses that moment to resist them and seeks to turn away God’s favor from them, but that same … Read More >

Automatic Life

This is the word of the Lord unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit saith the Lord of hosts” (Zechariah 4:6). Back of this old text is one of the most striking and beautiful visions of the Old Testament. The prophet Ezekiel is standing in the sanctuary which represents the Church of God and the Christian life. On one side stands the golden candlestick with its sevenfold light, the ancient type of the Holy Ghost. It is the only light of the sacred chamber. There are no windows to God’s tabernacle. The light of … Read More >

Soul Surgery: Part 7

Part 7 of a 9-part series by Pastor Alan Redpath given over the course of 1959. Conviction In Soul Winning Conviction may come simultaneously with confession, but confession of sin is not in itself conviction of sin. We cannot see life in reality without being oppressed with the awfulness of the burden of sin, our own and that of the world. We cannot think of human nature without being staggered by the terrible contradictions it contains. It is capable of soaring to Christ-like acts and emotions, and at the same time capable of descending to devilish lust and cruelty. The … Read More >

The Cross: God’s Way Of Redemption

Sermon delivered at The Moody Church by Rev. Carey S. Thomas of Philadelphia, PA. “For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish, foolishness, but unto us which are saved, it is the power of God”—1 Corinthians 1:18. The Gospel of Jesus Christ has not lost its power. It is still the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth. Somehow, we never tire of preaching the Cross of Christ, a crucified Christ. The Gospel of the saving grace works today and it is the only thing that does work. It is the only dynamic of … Read More >

A Lesson On Gratitude

Sermon preached by Pastor Alan Redpath in The Moody Church on Sunday, June 1, 1958. What a difference it makes in life when we not only talk about thanks giving, but when thanks giving issues in thanks living! For our meditation we are to consider Luke 17:11–19—the story of ten lepers. Though the Bible has many themes that run through it, and many chords assist in playing the great overtures of redemption, there is only one major theme that runs through it all—that of man’s relationship to God: a relationship which was broken long, long ago by rebellion, which God … Read More >
