The Wages of Sin

There is no incident that more forcefully illustrates sin’s ruin than that connected with the painting of Leonardo DaVinci’s great masterpiece, "The Last Supper". Long and in vain had the artist sought for a model for his Christ. "I must find a young man of pure life," he declared, "before I can get... Read More

Eternity

My text this evening is one word. Ever since I have been a minister I have asked God to help me say two words and say them properly. It is said that Whitefield used to say "Oh!" in such a fashion that his hearers were convicted of sin and some of them would cry out for mercy. The first word that I w... Read More

The Master Is Come

My text is in John 11:28 - "The Master is come and calleth for thee." This passage takes us to the home in Bethany where Jesus loved to be. It has to do with the sickness and death of Lazarus, and his resurrection from the dead. Some years ago I heard a distinguished man of God preach from this text... Read More

Prepare to Meet Thy God

The subject for the evening has been announced as Preparedness. I might well speak to you to-night concerning preparedness for the nation, but I have a greater subject than that. I have something of greater importance to say. My subject deals with time and eternity, and the preparation we must make ... Read More

Texts: Acts 1:11 -- "Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven." 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 -- "For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voi...

Sowing and Reaping

I am bringing to you what I think is a very solemn subject. I have no apology for speaking on solemn themes, for we are living in a day when many people seem to be turning to light and trifling things. We have reached a time when men regard God lightly. In fact, many seem to have put Him out of thei... Read More

The Accepted Time

My text is familiar -- II Corinthians 6:2 -- "Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation." This text is generally made use of in appeals to those who are not Christians, but if you will read the verses preceding and following the text, you will see that it is an appeal as ... Read More

The Precious Blood of Christ

I am preaching tonight on what I believe to be the most important subject in the Bible. Of course, anything that has to do with Jesus Christ is of vast importance. My text is found in the First Epistle of Peter 1:19 "The precious blood of Christ." The Apostle Peter, as we all know, was a fisherman i... Read More
