Sham Doctors "For they have healed the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, peace, peace; when there is no peace." (Jer. 8:11.) There is nothing Satan fears more than that believers shall be made fully whole. Hence, he seeks in many ways to blind them to God's provision for the Double Cure. He has many doctors whose work it is to substitute ...read
Sixth River -- Murder "Thou shalt do no murder." -- Ex. xx, 13.
God loves every one. He loves so intensely that He has made a Law punishing with eternal death any person who shall kill another.

The Apostles And The Double Cure The apostles and their co-workers received the Double Cure at Pentecost when they were filled with the Holy Ghost and their hearts were purified by faith. (Acts 15:8, 9.) Prior to Pentecost they were:
I. TRULY CONVERTED. -- This is overwhelmingly proved by the following facts:
They had received the Word. "For I have given unto the ...read
While the gift of the Double Cure is free, yet certain conditions must be met in order to receive it. Both conversion and entire sanctification have a God side and a man side. In conversion the divine and the human work is clearly shown in the following and kindred texts:
1. GOD'S PART. -- Redemption. "Forasmuch as ye know that ye wer ...read
The Double Work Sin is a double disease. It pollutes the soul and also poisons the outer life. It converts the heart into a den of vile passions and the exterior life into a panorama of dark deeds. It's twofold nature is clearly declared in God's word. (See Ps. 51; Zech. 13:1; 1 John 1:9, and kindred Scriptures.)
On these and like texts we base the follow ...read
The Holiness Capital In Chapter 18 we were given a description of the fall of Babylon, the bride of the Antichrist. In this chapter we behold the New Jerusalem, the Bride of the Lamb, the great holiness capital city of the new earth. It is beautiful and glorious beyond human language to portray. One moment in it will doubtless repay for all the endurances of earth. ...read
The Incline Among the numberless illustrations which we meet that are figures of the Double Cure, some of the most impressive is the inclined planes over which people ascend to some of the suburbs in our city. We recently made such an ascent over one which is said to carry to an elevation of two hundred and seventy-five feet above the Ohio river, leaving th ...read
The Judgment "So then each of us shall give account of himself to God." -- Rom. xiv, 12.
We must remember that the truths of the preceding pages are all to be met at the finalJudgment. We are responsible for how we receive them.

It shows the verification of the promise God has made that He will "make all things new." It is a description of the new earth and its glorious metropolitan capital. As the empire of Satan on earth sank in the collapse of Babylon and its false governments and eccle ...read
The Pentecostal Baptism Someone has said that there is a scarlet thread running clear through the Bible, and that this thread is the blood of Jesus. There is another thread running through it. It is the white one of the promise of the Pentecostal outpouring of the Holy Ghost. Of all the promises of the Bible, God exalts this as "The Promise" of all the ages. Of this ...read
The Pentecostal Church There are few subjects concerning which there has been more confusion than that of the Church. Satan has taken advantage of this fact, and made the most of it. In order to help dispel the fog which settles down upon the subject, the following truths must be borne in mind:
1. That no body of unconverted persons, no matter by what name ca ...read

To Whom Shall We Liken Him? It may not prove profitless to trace some of the correspondences between Mr. Weber andothers of the same evangelistic lineage, who have sounded the Gospel trumpet in this and in othercenturies.
He is unlike Noah, in that his efforts appear much more successful; yet he resembles him inthat his own family have confidence in his religion. S ...read
Tornadoes, 1882-1884 Republic, Wauseon and Marseilles had the honor of being among the first fields to whichthe Holy Spirit directed Bro. Weber, in his work as an evangelist. The saying of a prophet beingwithout honor in his own country, evidently has no application to him, as many of his grandestvictories have been in his own state.
At Republic many evangel ...read
Tornadoes, 1884-1885 "Began this year," writes the Evangelist, "as the previous one, on my knees in the house of God. My prayer was that this year might eclipse all others in soul-saving."
The general features of the following revivals have already been described in those that have gone before. The opposition of the devil and his agents, the diverse cri ...read
Typified In The New Testament The Double Book. The Bible is a double blessing. The Old Testament precedes and paves the way for the New. It is the trunk of the tree of which the New is the blossom and the fruit. The Old was perfect as far as it went, but is incomplete without the New. Both are incited by the Holy Ghost, and both were essential to the salvation of the race, a ...read
Typified In The Old Testament The Scripture firmament fairly glistens with typical stars of the first magnitude, which shine with holy light upon this theme. Those who ignore symbols, and others who try to make them mean more than the Word warrants, lose this light, but others rejoice in it.
