SermonThey Should Have Expected Him, And So Should We!
      The prophecies in the Old Testament pointing to the birth of Christ show that God blazed a trail down through history in such a definite way that when Jesus Christ came, the people should have known by the prophetic Scriptures who He was. God had made it very clear that this one who was coming would be born of a woman; that is, God would take upon
SermonThis is His Life
      In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. There was a man sent f
SermonThree Worlds in One
      The three worlds in one - the world that was, the world that is, and the world that will be - are described for us in the third chapter of Peter's second letter: This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you, in both of which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance, that ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the h
SermonTongues on Fire
      Proper warning must be given to those who are gossips: This study may bring a measure of discomfort of mind and heart. However, a little Christian courage will be helpful in looking frankly at this subject given to us by James-namely, hell on fire. If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart,
SermonWanted: Stretcher Bearers
      And again he entered into Capernaum after some days; and it was reported that he was in the house. And straightway many were gathered together, insomuch that there was no room to receive them, no, not so much as about the door; and he preached the word unto them. And they come unto him, bringing one sick of the palsy, who was borne by four. And whe
SermonWas Abraham Justified by Works?
       God's Test ...For now I know that thou fearest God.... (Genesis 22:12) And it came to pass after these things, that God did test Abraham, and said unto him, Abraham: and he said, Behold, here I am. And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offerin
SermonWhat Can Believers Do in Days of Apostasy?
       The Apostasy Has Arrived The church is in a very sad state at the present hour. The thing that is alarming about it is that the church is satisfied with it. Some preachers are greatly exercised over it, but they are the minority. I find very few people who are disturbed today. Most of the church has settled down into this deplorable state we're
What do You do With your Burdens? - Table of Contents
       Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. (Galatians 6:2) For every man shall bear his own burden. (Galatians 6:5) Most little towns of a bygone day had a character known as the town atheist, a freethinker, generally a ne'er-do-well. The little town in which I lived as a boy lacked many things. It didn't have streetligh
SermonWhat is Christmas Without the Resurrection?
      A primary problem facing scientists and engineers around the world during the "space race" of the late 1950s and early 1960s centered on getting the space-traveler back through the earth's atmosphere alive. Once the problem of getting the spacecraft and occupants safely out of the atmosphere was solved, the issue of getting them back in posed a rea
SermonWhat is the Mark of a Good Church?
      First of all, it should be a local church organized according to Scripture. The best place that I know to go is to the Word of God and see how the church was organized on the Day of Pentecost. They didn't have a meeting in which they elected officers at that time. They did later on, of course. But these officers were appointed. I've never been quit
SermonWhat is This World Coming To?
      Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and their cords from us. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. Then shall he speak
SermonWhat is Worship?
      On next Lord's Day morning, if the ministers over this land of ours were to ask this question: "How many of you have ever worshiped God?" no doubt virtually every hand would be lifted. Therefore, it would be presumptuous, would it not, for me to say that very few people have actually worshiped God? But there are some Christians who have never reall
SermonWhat Really Happened On the Day of Pentecost?
      There is a great confusion and diversification of opinions when it comes to discussing the events that took place on the Day of Pentecost. What exactly did happen? In order to get the correct answer, let us look very carefully at the only record we are given of what actually occurred on that day. It will be necessary for us to move back and see the
SermonWhen Divorce is Scriptural and Marriage is Unscriptural
      The Old Testament prophecy of Malachi reveals an age deadened to sin. The people of Israel had been drugged to an unconsciousness of sin. They were in a spiritual stupor with no conviction, which is the lowest state of sin. They mouthed surprise that God would find fault with their lifestyle. They were peevish and petulant children who affected ign
SermonWhen God Became Man
      In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. There was a man sent f
SermonWhen God Flexes His Muscles
      The most familiar symbol in the world today is not the Stars and Stripes; it is not the hammer and the sickle; it is not the Union Jack; and it is not the dollar sign. The royal banner of the cross "towering over the wrecks of time" is more widely known on every continent and every isle of the sea than any other symbol. It is associated with the d
SermonWhen Paul Prayed
      It's interesting that we don't often think of Paul as an outstanding man of prayer. When you think of anyone excelling in any field of service in the early church, Paul the apostle must be up toward the top. We would put him at the top of the list as a great missionary of the cross, and we can't think of any greater example of apostleship than Paul
SermonWho is Antichrist?
      Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, that ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of the Lord is present. Let no man deceive you by any means; for that day shall not come, except there come the fa
SermonWhy Angels Do Not Sing!
      I want to invite your attention to two verses of Scripture found in the Gospel of Luke, the second chapter: And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying [not singing], Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among men in whom he is well pleased. (Luke 2:13, 14) Now when I was a little fel
SermonWhy Do God's Children Suffer?
      For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds. Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin. And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto sons, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him; f
