SermonJob: A Man Stripped Bare
      The Book of Job tells a true story but, since it comes out of the ancient Middle East, you may get the impression that it's far removed from life in modern America, that the story, and even Job's experience, are out of step. But it's very interesting that one of the most successful plays to appear on Broadway was a play entitled J.B. It's the story
Jonah: Dead or Alive? - Table of Contents
      Now the word of the LORD came to Jonah the son of Amittai, saying, "Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry out against it; for their wickedness has come up before Me." But Jonah arose to flee to Tarshish from the presence of the LORD. He went down to Joppa, and found a ship going to Tarshish; so he paid the fare, and went down into it, to g
SermonLife's Biggest Question and God's Answer
      Why dost thou show me iniquity, and cause me to behold grievance? For spoiling and violence are before me; and there are those who raise up strife and contention. (Habakkuk 1:3) After you have seen the evening newscast or read the morning newspaper, has the thought come to your mind, This country - and the world - are in a mess! Why doesn't God do
SermonListen to a Picture
      In Atlanta, Georgia, I was walking down a street a few years ago and noticed that one of the art galleries was having an exhibit with the theme, "Listen to a Picture." They are trying in the South to recover some of the rich culture that has been lost in the past few decades. There has been a decline there in the love and appreciation for some of t
SermonLiving the Christian Life God's Way
      Before me is a letter, typical of many I have received recently, that tells the story of failure in the Christian life. The man writes, "It seems that I know you because I have listened to you for so long. Several of your recent sermons have seemed especially for my encouragement, and, brother, do I need it! I am surely in the seventh of Romans and
SermonMicaiah and a God-Aimed Arrow
      There is the ever-present temptation when we come to the record given in 1 and 2 Kings to emphasize some phase of the life of Elijah. He dominates this era, and his life is rich in interest and in spiritual content. However, there is another prophet who is as little-known as Elijah is well-known. You may not be acquainted with him at all. I want to
SermonNew Jerusalem:
       The Eternal Home of the Church Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. (J
SermonOne Hour in Romans
      The Epistle to the Romans has been called the magnum opus of the apostle Paul. Martin Luther called it the "true masterpiece of the New Testament," and William R. Newell declared, "Romans is the Gospel." I personally believe that every believer ought to spend more time reading the Epistle to the Romans than any other portion of the Word of God. I l
SermonSatan: Who is He?
      This is one theme that I approach with mixed feelings. I want to avoid any superstitious and non-biblical conceptions because there's so much abroad today concerning Satan that is not biblical. Yet I want to be realistic about it. I believe that Satan is a reality. He is a person, and I am convinced that he would like very much to see you skip this
SermonSome Seed
      The punctuation following the title may look strange to you, but it tells the story of this parable. In fact, it divides the parable into three points, which we will consider. First, SOME SEED. This is merely a statement - the parable is about some seed. Secondly, we have SOME SEED? There is a question about what the seed will produce because of th
SermonSorrow Not
      People all over the world are seeking comfort at this very moment. They long for peace in their hearts. Jesus alone can bring that comfort. In John 14:1 He tells us the basis for it: " believe in God, believe also in me." And for those who believe in the Lord Jesus, death brings hope as well as sorrow. Let's look at what the apostle Paul says
SermonStranger of Galilee
      Mistaken identity has been the plot source for writers of both comedy and tragedy over the centuries. Shakespeare wrote several comedies using this as his source - for example, his Comedy of Errors. And Dickens used mistaken identity as a source for tragedy in his A Tale of Two Cities. It is the basis of The Count of Monte Cristo, and continues to
SermonThe "Only" Psalm
      When you come face-to-face with problems that arise to block your progress, have you thought of turning to read about a man who had similar problems? David walked through the storms of life, and God gave to the world, through him, the hymnbook of the Bible. We know it as the Book of Psalms. I'd like to focus now on Psalm 62, a great hymn and a maj
SermonThe Amazing, Alarming, and Awful Apostasy
      Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by God, the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, and called: mercy unto you, and peace, and love be multiplied. Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should ea
SermonThe Antidote to Anti-Semitism
      After the experience of the Holocaust under the Hitler regime, you would think that the world would have moved away from anti-Semitism. But fresh outbreaks are appearing in many countries. With Nazi atrocities so fresh in our minds, we are shocked and startled by this. The concentration camps and ovens of Dachau are still grim reminders of the awfu
SermonThe Authorship of Hebrews or Did Paul Write Hebrews?
      The Epistle to the Hebrews presents many moot problems. Some of them are in conjunction with the question of authorship, which we shall consider under the following divisions: 1. Internal evidence on authorship (is Hebrews an epistle or treatise?) 2. Date and destination 3. Arguments available on authorship 4. A defense of the Paulin
SermonThe Best Love
       Preface Every Bible-believing and Bible-preaching minister seeks the mind of the Lord in preparation for his pulpit ministry. Sometimes he feels that the Spirit of God gives him a special anointing for a particular sermon, which may be lacking on other occasions. This message came through severe travail of soul and through a sweet inspiration t
SermonThe Church at Its Best
      Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write: These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden lampstands. I know thy works, and thy labor, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them who are evil; and thou hast tried them who say they are apostles, and are not, and hast foun
SermonThe Country Preacher Who Came to Town
      In the days of Amos (8th century B.C.) God's message through this remarkable prophet dealt with the fact that God's people were breaking His laws, which He had given "that it may go well with you and your children after you forever" (Deuteronomy 12:28). Amos was angry at the violence they had done to the justice and the righteousness of God. Since
SermonThe Cross Divides Men
      And it was the third hour; and they crucified him. And the superscription of his accusation was written over, THE KING OF THE JEWS. And with him they crucify two thieves, the one on his right hand, and the other on his left. And the scripture was fulfilled, which saith, And he was numbered with the transgressors. And they that passed by railed at h
