The Revival Harvest Is Always Ripe Among Lost Sinners
      Throughout these lectures we have felt constrained to return repeatedly to the Scripture given in Matthew 9:35-38, where Jesus gave us this law that the harvest is plenteous but the laborers are few--that the trouble is not with the circumstances, the sinners, the world, but with the church, the people of God. Let us read that Scripture again with ...read

The Seven Saddest Sayings for Sinners
      The Bible deals with the most heart-moving themes that ever entered the mind of man; with the deepest woes of human misery and the highest heights of blessedness and ecstasy; with eternities, not time alone. It centers not on food and drink, nor houses and jobs, but on sin and salvation, Heaven and Hell, everlasting joy or sorrow. The preacher ...read

The Sorrows of Backsliding
      Jeremiah 2:19 says: "Thine own wickedness shall correct thee, and thy backslidings shall reprove thee: know therefore and see that it is an evil thing and bitter, that thou hast forsaken the Lord thy God, and that my fear is not in thee, saith the Lord God of hosts." Oh, the trouble that comes to the backslider in heart! Again, Proverbs 1 ...read

The Unvarying God
      "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning."-Jas. 1:17. In the matter of good providence and kind provision, God is an unfailing God. There is not a shadow of turning in the continual pouring out of His blessings. He is the unvarying Go ...read

The Young Christian and His Bible
      How will a Christian learn to be happy and victorious? How will he learn to conquer temptations and have influence for God and win souls? By loving and using and meditating in the Bible. When those three thousand converts at Pentecost were saved and baptized, Acts, chapter 2, says", "And they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine . ...read

Tongues at Pentecost
      I read a few verses from Acts, chapter 2, as I begin a series of messages on speaking in tongues. In reading what the Bible has to say about speaking in tongues, my aim is, first of all, to get people concerned about the one main thing, that is, the power of the Holy Spirit to win souls, and to keep people from being led off into some cult and fals ...read

Voices that Despair of Revival
      WE CAN have revival now! That is the sense of what Jesus said to His disciples and followers again and again. In Matthew 9:36-38 a statement of Jesus, to His twelve disciples, is given just before He sent them out, giving them power over unclean spirits. Read carefully that Scripture: "But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassio ...read

We Can Have Revival Now Because of God's Infinite Resources Freely Available
      PETER, walking on the water to come to Jesus at His command, saw the wind and waves boisterous and was afraid. He lost his faith and began to sink. His trouble was that he looked at the circumstances instead of the Lord Jesus, the Creator of all the winds and waves. Andrew, when Jesus wanted to feed the five thousand, said, "There is a lad here ...read

What Is a Backslider?
      "The backslider in heart shall be filled with his own ways." - Prov. 14:14. "Thine own wickedness shall correct thee, and thy backslidings shall reprove thee: know therefore and see that it is an evil thing and bitter, that thou hast forsaken the Lord thy God, and that my fear is not in thee, saith the Lord God of hosts." - Jer. 2:19. C ...read

WHAT MUST AN HONEST CHRISTIAN DO ABOUT BAPTISM?
      There are three courses which a man may follow in regard to baptism. 1. FOLLOW CATHOLICS IN CHANGING BAPTISM AS TO MODE AND MEANING. 2. FOLLOW MODERNISTS IN LEAVING OFF BAPTISM. 3. FOLLOW THE BIBLE AND BE BAPTIZED THE BIBLE WAY. If he believes, as Catholics do, that the church has a right to change what God plainly commanded, that i ...read

What Must I Do to be Saved?
      What must I do to be saved? Here in the simplest, shortest form is put the question to which every man must learn the answer, or spend eternity lost, away from God, suffering the torments of the damned! Thank God, this question is asked and answered in the Word of God so simply that every soul can understand it. There are other questions in God's ...read

Why People Backslide; the Old Adamic Nature
      I remember when I first became conscious of my backsliding. I had been saved at about nine years of age. I had trusted Christ to forgive me, and I am sure He did. Three years later I joined the church, was baptized, and had received full assurance that my sins were forgiven. But my mother was dead, and my boyhood companions in the wild west Texas c ...read

"The Last Days", A Blessed Age of Revival
      MANY people use the term, "the last days" to mean the time since World War I or the last ten or twenty-five or fifty years before Christ returns to catch away His saints. Very generally such hyper-dispensationalists mean that a certain period just before Christ will return is now upon us, and that in these so-called "last days" sinners are hard ...read
