God's Way to Mass Revival
      THROUGHOUT these lectures we have insisted that we can have revival now. The Bible prophesies great revivals yet to come; this age is the age of revival, the age of the pouring out of the Holy Spirit for soul-winning, the age when "whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." We have insisted that God's mighty resources are su ...read

Great Revivals in Bible Times Prove We Can Have Revival Now
      FAINT-HEARTED Christians who watch the clouds so much they do not sow, and observe the wind until they do not reap, are defeated by the manifest wickedness on every side, and do not believe that God can give revival now. Many people cite the coldness of the people of God, the modernism and infidelity in many of the pulpits and in many places of den ...read

Great Women of the Bible
      "Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands." "She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the ...read

Hindrances to Prayer
      "... that your prayers be not hindered." - I Pet. 3:7. "Behold, the Lord's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: but your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear." - Isa. 59:1,2. "For the eyes of the Lord are o ...read

How Great Soul-Winners Were Filled with the Holy Spirit
      "But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all ]udaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth." --Acts 1:8 ".. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established." --II Cor. 13:l SOMEONE HAS SAID that one examp ...read

HOW THE WORLD GOT WRONG ON BAPTISM
      There is a strange text of Scripture in Revelation 17:5: "And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BASYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH" By reading the rest of the chapter we find that evil woman is certainly used to represent Roman Catholicism. Rome with its worldwide spiritual adultery or fals ...read

How to Come to Jesus -- a short, simple sermon on Salvation
      "All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out." - John 6:37. Anybody who wants to be saved can be saved right now, as you read this article. I mean the worst drunkard, the most abandoned woman, or even the person most ignorant of God and the Bible, can be saved now and know it, beyond the ...read

How to Get Back to Full Fellowship With God
      If you are a backslider, then I have good news for you. The simplest and shortest part of this sermon is how to get back to God. Simply turn to God in your heart, confess your sin and backsliding, and He will receive you with open arms and forgive you of all your sins, failures and mistakes. In I John 1:9 is this sweet verse for Christians, "I ...read

Hyper-Calvinism: A False Doctrine
      Through the years there has been a conflict between the doctrine of eternal salvation by grace through faith, not of works, and the doctrine of salvation partly by God's grace and partly by man's works or by deserving it or by faithfulness. We know that all false religions teach salvation by good works, character, human merit, or rites, not the f ...read

Jesus May Come Today
      "Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come." Matt. 24:42. "Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh." Matt. 24:44. "Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh." Matt. 25:13. "Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not ...read

NO BABIES BAPTIZED IN THE BIBLE
      Since salvation must come, according to the Bible, before there can be Bible baptism, it is obvious that there is no reason for baptizing babies, unaccountable infants. There is not one New Testament record of the baptism of an infant. Jesus did lay His hands on little children and bless them, but certainly He did not baptize them or the Scripture ...read

Personal Soul Winning
      Value and Importance of Personal Work "One of the two which heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother. He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ. And he brought him to Jesus ... . The day following Jesus would go forth into Galilee, a ...read

Prayer Life of a Christian
      I am speaking this month on how to grow to be a strong Christian, taking as an example the Christians at Pentecost, those three thousand people who were saved and baptized then. And in Acts, chapter 2, verses 41 and 42, I read again, "Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three tho ...read

Present-Day Wickedness, Apostasy and Modern Civilization Cannot Prevent Revival
      THE God whom some people worship is old and tired. The present-day civilization is entirely too much for Him! Maybe He could one time give great revivals, but He cannot any more. Mankind has simply gotten to be worse than that old-fashioned God can handle the God of some people's faith. The only thing that God and the people of little faith and li ...read

Religious But Lost!
      "Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils ? and in thy name done many wonderful works ? And then will I profess unto them, I n ...read

Silent Night, Holy Night
      The Christmas Carol By an Austrian Priest and Organist "And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David.) To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. And so it was, that, while they were the ...read

Six Pressing Reasons Why You Should Be Saved Today
      "Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice, "Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness: "When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years. "Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do alway err in their heart; and they h ...read

THE FORM OF BAPTISM
      The form of baptism is very clear from the Bible. Let us notice the plain teaching of the Scripture about this matter. 1. The form of baptism requires WATER. John the Baptist said, "I indeed baptize you with water" (Matt. 3:11; Mark 1:8; Luke 3:16; John 1:26,33). A Bible baptism requires water. The word translated with in the above verse is u ...read

The Gifts of the Spirit
      I spoke last Sunday on Acts, chapter 2, which is the one great definitive case in the New Testament about speaking in tongues. There we learn that according to the Bible many people heard Christian people speak in their own language in which they were born. They said, 'Aren't these all Galileans? How is it we hear them speak in our tongues the wo ...read

The Holy Spirit, Our Loving Friend
      I. The Holy Spirit Dwells Within I want to speak to you this month on the Holy Spirit. Today it will be "The Holy Spirit Dwells Within." It is sad there has been so much foolishness taught about the Holy Spirit. Instead of thinking about that sweet Person the Spirit as a beloved Person, equal with the Father and the Son, people think about talki ...read
