Alcohol

The Bible bluntly prohibits a number of perverse behaviors, among them is the sin of drunkenness. In Galatians 5:19-21, Paul groups this sin with some terrible company. As believers who recognize drunkenness as an outworking of our flesh, we ought to avoid it with fervency. For some believers, total abstinence is wise and the best course of action. Those who have seen the destruction that alcohol has wrought within their families often rightly shun all association with it. Furthermore, the only sure way to never become an alcoholic is to choose to not drink.     For other believers, drinking … Read More >

Sin: Confessed And Unconfessed

Sin is any action, attitude, or thought which is contrary to the character and command of God (1 John 3:4). As temptation constantly floods our senses, we intentionally and unintentionally are drawn toward it, and often sin. Sin’s influence must not be underestimated, for the Holy Spirit is grieved because of our sin (Ephesians 4:30). While sin is difficult to categorize, we can think of sin in a threefold sense: sins of commission (sins of what we do), sins of omission (sins of what we don’t do), and sins of disposition (sins of how we do something). Sins … Read More >

Sign Of The Blood

When I see the blood I will pass over you. —Exodus 12:13 Of all the events in the history of that most wonderful of all nations, Israel, there is none quite so unique, so sacred, or significant as the one that we undertake to consider tonight known as the Passover. So wonderful was it that God commanded that people to keep it as a memorial feast forever. It was never to be forgotten. And although at the time of the Passover Israel was practically a nation of slaves, from then until now wherever a Jew exists he will point … Read More >

A Last Appeal

Dr. H.A. Ironside’s Final Sermon as Senior Pastor of The Moody Church
Preached on the Night of His Farewell 
Sunday, October 31, 1948 The first book of Kings, chapter 18, verse 21: “And Elijah came unto all the people and said, ‘How long halt ye between two opinions? If the Lord be God follow Him, but if Baal, follow him.’ And the people answered him not a word.” I am sure that you recall the circumstances under which these words were uttered. You remember that the people of Israel to whom God had given such a wonderful … Read More >

Fools—Wise Or Otherwise

I am going to ask your attention to two passages of Scripture, as I begin this message. We may turn to a number more as we go along. In the book of Proverbs, chapter ten, the last part of verse twenty-one, we read: “Fools die for want of wisdom.” And then in First Corinthians, chapter 3, verse eighteen: “Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.” These verses may seem almost paradoxical, but in the one instance God is … Read More >

The Unpardonable Sin

Arising out of Jesus’ words in Matthew 12:31, the subject of the unpardonable sin has been repeatedly twisted, undermining the confidence of believers. Contextually speaking, Matthew 12 is couched in the common confrontation between Christ and the Jewish leaders (the familiar term is “brood of vipers”). In chapter 12, Jesus had freed a man from the power of a demon. This dramatic event caused a vicious reaction from the Pharisees, who accused Jesus of performing His miracles by the power of Beelzebub (Satan).  Jesus responds to this outlandish affront by condemning their accusations. He who has perfect communion … Read More >

Are There Generational Sins And Curses?

God’s holiness is unmatched. He responds to sin not only with grace, but also with holy judgment. When we observe the nature of sin and punishment in the Old Testament, the prophets record that God treats sin harshly. Sin affects more than merely the perpetrator, it spills over into the community, especially the family. Thus, God speaks of visiting and punishing sins to the third and fourth generation (Exodus 20:5, Numbers 14:18, Lamentations 5:7). Achan and his family’s punishment is one extraordinary example of God’s tenacity for purity, but it should not be considered as a normal … Read More >

Freedom From Sexual Sin

Sadly, some believers sincerely question whether or not viewing pornography is wrong at all. But the Scriptures are blunt (Matthew 5:28; 1 Corinthians 6:18-20; 1 John 2:16; Philippians 4:8; Hebrews 13:4; 1 Thessalonians 4:3-6). God’s standard is purity of heart, for such shall see God (Matthew 5:8). The only way to find freedom from sexual bondage is by utilizing the resources that God has given us—the Word and the Church. We believe that although one can fall into the trap of pornography without any help, we cannot come out of this unclean practice … Read More >

Studies In The Psalms

As we are about to enter upon the study of this book, I want first to say a few things of an introductory character. I suppose there is no portion of Holy Scripture that has meant more to the people of God, particularly to tried and afflicted believers down through both the Jewish and Christian centuries, than the book of Psalms. Of course the worship expressed in this book does not rise to the full character of Christian worship as in this present dispensation of the grace of God. As we read the Psalms we need to remember that when … Read More >

Charge That To My Account

If thou count me therefore a partner, receive him as myself. If he hath wronged thee, or oweth thee ought, put that on mine account; I Paul have written it with mine own hand, I will repay it; albeit I do not say to thee how thou owest unto me even thine own self besides” —Philemon 17-19 Someone has said that this Epistle to Philemon is the finest specimen of early private Christian correspondence extant. We should expect this, since it was given by divine inspiration. And yet it all has to do with a thieving runaway slave named Onesimus … Read More >
