A Correct Perspective for our Spiritual Development

God has satisfied my spiritual hunger in a measure, but I am not perfectly satisfied yet. I am satisfied that I have found the source of all life and truth, but I recognize that there is much more. There is yet before us an expansive field of spiritual reality. We are to venture there with the Holy ... Read More

A Personal Testimony

I am spiritually minded; my feet are upon the earth, but my heart is in heaven. It is good to be in both realms, and to adjust yourself. That is really living. When I teach, I am teaching out of my heart; not out of a book. I teach out of my life. This gives me authority to preach and teach things I... Read More

Baptism of the Holy Spirit

Baptism of the Holy Spirit is the divine explosion within the innermost part of man which brings to the surface all things good and evil. If you don't find an interior revolution which will affect the external, I question your experience of the baptism of the Holy Spirit. 1. The Holy Spirit is alway... Read More

Bread & Fishes

The Lord has placed within us the ability to worship as the means to find satisfaction for the deep inner longing that is resident within each one of us. This worship is to flow out from our inner depths, upward to the Lord, as we recognize that He alone is able to satisfy this hunger. To worship in... Read More

Bride of Christ

Eve was taken OUT of the body of Adam. Notice that it was not the whole body of Adam which made the bride. So, too, out of the Body of Christ can come His Bride. This also is brought about by a separation -- He calls the overcoming group His Bride. The whole group, or body, is not the Bride. The hig... Read More

Choices and Decisions

We are standing here, and we are the sum total of all the choices and decisions we have made in our lives. They have all registered, and this, is the composition of our character. We live in our wills. We forget, when speaking about heaven, that so many of the things which are for us in the ages yet... Read More

Christian Character - a Qualification

We have been considering the subject of Christian character from several viewpoints. Let us think of it as qualifying us for Christian living, and trace its importance as suggested by some scriptures I shall read. Let us consider two pictures together--one from a positive, the other from a negative ... Read More

Christian Character: A Progressive Development

This that I share is truth which I have discovered in the field of spiritual reality. This world of spiritual reality is abstract and invisible, but it is more real than the material world. There is a Divine process in which the Lord is far more interested, than in those things about which most peop... Read More

Church

There has always been a main objective towards which every manifestation of God moves. Each dispensation shows this. Today it is the Body of Christ. What was the burden of Paul's prayers? It was for the growth and development of believers -- the Body. It was not bringing in the kingdom and getting t... Read More

Communion

He is a seeking God --seeking with a broken heart; not getting the response which He should have in the creature. We say our hearts get so hungry, but God's heart is so hungry. When did you give Him anything to satisfy Him? When did you feed Him? The first picture of His broken heart is found in Gen... Read More

Cross

Every man will find his discipline, and every man will find his cross. All Christians are not disciples. When He first introduces the cross, it is to Christians. Jesus Christ never places a cross on anybody. It is in our volitional Power of will to choose. He doesn't lay a cross on us "so we can lov... Read More

Deep Calleth Unto Deep

THE CALL OF DEEP UNTO DEEP Down in the depth of my nature Where the issues of life are born, From that unknown mystical realm, Surviving through ages of storm, A call is forever rising-- But its language I cannot speak. It was born ere I had being, 'Tis the call of deep unto deep. Our mother tongue ... Read More

Detachment

Christ is the Head of the Church, His Body. I thank God for this wonderful Body of His that is throughout the earth. All direction for this Body is to come from the Head. The Lord does not expect my hand to be my brain. Rather, He expects my hand to serve as my mind directs. Thus, nothing should ori... Read More

Direction for Our Lives

When God formed man and breathed life into him, He placed within man an objective for his life. This “objective” is like a prize that is placed before us as a goal to be reached. “Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and...

Divine Arrangement

A divine arrangement is a certain method or rule by which God works. Never ask Him to change to accommodate your mind; adapt yourself to His method. 2 Timothy 1:7: "For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." Sound mind is a bad translation; a bette... Read More

Divine Revelation

Never approach the Lord as you would approach any other literature. The Holy Spirit is needed for its revelation. Truth cometh by revelation, and that by the Spirit of God; not by our mental processes, but by the Holy Spirit, Who reveals the things of God to us. (1 Cor. 2:10) Teachers are those who ...

Emotions

Sometimes I have a test of faith as I mature in God. He doesn't ask me to understand Him. but He under\-stands me perfectly. I don't always understand Him. but I love Him anyway. Sometimes He is very difficult to understand, and I say. ,Lord. don't look at my tears. please, look at me, in here. wher... Read More

Emptied From Vessel to Vesse

"Moab hath been at ease from his youth, and he hath settled on his lees, and hath not been emptied from vessel to vessel, neither hath he gone into captivity; therefore his taste remained in him, and his scent is not changed." (Jer. 48:11). In the text before us we find a partial statement of the ju... Read More

End Time

All the fields will be going into distortion -- music, philosophy, literature, everything. The enemy comes in to distort it -- the rhythm ,and beauty are gone. We see it in every field. The standards that maintained, and were good in their own fields, that all is undermined -- in the nations, in gov... Read More

Faith

When God speaks the Word, it has two definite qualifies. It is authoritative, and it has creative power. The Word is quickened by the Spirit. Faith lays hold of, and wraps itself around that Word. It is our garrison of strength, and security for faith. Its creative power ministers to our faith and s... Read More
