Work for Beginners

“We are nearing the close of this earth’s history. There are men who will be taken from the plough, from the vineyard, from various other branches of work, and sent forth by the Lord to give the message to the world...

Prayer and Faith

I have frequently seen that the children of the Lord neglect prayer, especially secret prayer, altogether too much; that many do not exercise that faith which it is their privilege and duty to exercise, often waiting...

The Simplicity of Being Saved

He who will lay hold of Christ’s righteousness need not wait one moment that he himself may blot out his own sins. He need not wait until he has made a suitable repentance before he may take hold upon...

Beauty for Ashes: Dress Reformed

I just read about a fashion show in a church in New York scheduled to take place on Sabbath [insert shocked face]. All I can think of is what happened to my church? Is this what the Jewish nation was doing right before...

The Preparation Needed

I am filled with sadness when I think of our condition as a people. The Lord has not closed heaven to us, but our own course of continual backsliding has separated us from God. Pride, covetousness, and love of the world...

Trump Deals Protestantism a Deadly Blow

America was Methodist, once upon a time—Methodist, or Baptist, or Presbyterian, or Congregationalist, or Episcopalian, or even Seventh-day Adventist. We typically think of Protestantism originating from the work of...

How to Tell if God is Leading

You will meet, as I have, with people who profess to be sanctified, holy. Now, there is a bewitching influence carried with this doctrine. They will state to you wonderful exercises of mind to show you that the Lord is...

A Warning Against Counterfeit Sanctification

During the meetings at Orebro I was urged by the Spirit of the Lord to present His law as the great standard of righteousness and to warn our people against the modern, counterfeit sanctification which has its origin in...

Duty of Parents to Their Children

One of the signs of the “last days” is the disobedience of children to their parents. 2 Timothy 3:2. And do parents realize their responsibility? Many seem to lose sight of the watch-care they should ever have over...

Unity in Diversity

God calls for unity in diversity among his people. Life in nature objects to uniformity. In the branches of the vine there is unity in diversity. There is a variety in a tree; scarcely two leaves are just alike. And...

Christ Our High Priest

Justice demands that sin be not merely pardoned, but the death penalty must be executed. God, in the gift of His only begotten Son, met both these requirements. By dying in man’s stead, Christ exhausted the penalty and...

The Need of Reformation

Paul wrote to the Romans, “When ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness. What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death. But now being made...

Ancient Ordinances and Present Duties

Christ’s last great struggle with the power of darkness should ever be kept fresh in the minds of all who believe in him as the propitiation for the sins of the world. God would have us study the lesson taught by the...

Where Are You Picking Your Easter Eggs From?

Recently, I drove past a local Sunday church in Oklahoma and noticed a sign that read, “Easter Sunrise Services.” I asked myself if I should take a picture of this to send to my pastor in Arizona to show him where this...

Danger of Reading Fictitious and Infidel Books

Every Christian, whether old or young, will be assailed by temptations; and our only safety is in carefully studying our duty, and then doing it at any cost to ourselves. Everything has been done for us to secure our...

21st Century Disciples

Luke, the writer of the Gospel that bears his name, was a medical missionary. In the Scriptures he is called “the beloved physician.” Colossians 4:14. The apostle Paul heard of his skill as a physician, and sought him...

He is Coming!

Jesus is coming! He will visit this world again, but not as at his first advent, to be despised, scoffed at and hated, to have his head pierced with a crown of thorns, and have nails driven through his precious hands...

Pass it On: Blessed to be a Blessing

Every advantage Christ possessed, He used to the benefit of others. He used His advantages to advantage others in hopes that they would pass on the blessings by being a blessing. His goal was not only to bring physical...
