A Quake That Shook England by Greg Gordon

Unadulterated Christianity “GEORGE FOX ALONE HAS, without human learning, done more than any other reformer in Protestant Christendom towards the restoration of real, primitive, unadulterated Christianity and the destruction of priest craft, superstition, and ridiculous, unavailing rites and ceremon...

Are We Playing By The Book? by Vance Havner

WHEN A GROUP OF SMALL BOYS out to play ball, arrived at the play ground, they discovered that no one had brought a ball. “Forget the ball,” said one impatiently. “Let’s get on with the game.” We are trying to play without the ball when the Church tries to evangelize before she has repented. The Chur... Read More

Broken Down Altars by Billy Sunday

God Sends A Prophet AS WE READ THE BIBLE we will notice that always in a dark time God sends a prophet to arouse, stir and call the people back to the true God. So in this instance, when the situation looked dark, God sent His messenger to warn the people of the judgment which they were bringing on ... Read More

Church Be Still! by C.H. Spurgeon

THE CHURCH WOULD SOON BE healed of her sorrows, and delivered from her divisions, if she would for a while be silent; but the voice of a favorite teacher is heard by some, and the voice of another master in Israel is listened to by others, and so God’s voice is lost amid the clamor of sects and the ...

Following Hard After God! by A.W. Tozer

HOW TRAGIC THAT WE IN this dark day have had our seeking done for us by our teachers. Everything is made to center upon the initial act of “accepting” Christ (a term, incidentally, which is not found in the Bible) and we are not expected thereafter to crave any further revelation of God to our souls...

Girolamo Savonarola by David Smithers

IN JAMES 5:10 WE ARE EXHORTED to “take the prophets for an example”. A careful study of the “Holy Men of Old” can kindle both the fires of self-sacrifice and prayerful devotion. However, prophetic examples are not confined only to the pages of the Scriptures. Though often neglected, maligned and for... Read More

Having Begun In The Spirit by Andrew Murray

THE WORDS FROM WHICH I wish to address you, you will find in the epistle to the Galatians, the third chapter, the second and third verses: “This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? Are ye so foolish?” And then comes my text-”Having b... Read More

How Salvation is to be Sought by Jonathan Edwards

A Great Undertaking “THUS DID NOAH; ACCORDING to all that God commanded him, so did he” (Genesis 6:22). We should be willing to engage in and go through great undertakings, in order to our own salvation. The building of the ark, which was enjoined upon Noah, that he and his family might be saved, wa...

Keep Praying Until God Answers by R.A. Torrey

THE CENTRAL LESSON in this parable of the friend at midnight: When we pray, if we do not obtain the thing the first time, pray again; and if we do not obtain it the second time, pray a third time; and if we do not obtain it the hundredth time, go on praying until we do get it. We should do much thin... Read More

Philip Jacob Spener by David Smithers

IN EVERY GENERATION GOD HAS had a remnant that strived to restore true Christianity according to the Apostolic pattern. 17th century Germany was the home of just such a people known as the Pietist. The Pietist yearned and prayed to see the Church restored to Her original purity and power. The vision... Read More

Prayer and Revival by J. Edwin Orr

The Hope For Revival DR. A.T. PIERSON ONCE SAID, “There has never been a spiritual awakening in any country or locality that did not begin in united prayer.” Let me recount what God has done through concerted, united, sustained prayer. Not many people realize that in the wake of the American Revolut... Read More

Richard Baxter by David Smithers

MANY WITHIN THE CHURCH feel as if they are drowning in a river of empty words and hollow promises. Demoralized by superficial religion, their hungry hearts are crying out, “Where is the REAL Church, mighty in truth and power?” There are many who can give us a moving definition of revival, but where ...

Ten Marks of a Flesh-Pleaser by Richard Baxter

THE SIGNS OF A FLESH-PLEASER or sensualist are these: The Service of God 1. When a man in his desire to please his appetite, does not do it with a view to a higher end, that is to say to the preparing himself for the service of God; but does it only for the delight itself. (Of course no one does eve... Read More

The Marks of the New Birth by George Whitefield

MATTHEW 18:3 - VERILY I SAY unto you, except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven." I suppose I may take it for granted, that all of you, among whom I am now about to preach the kingdom of God, are fully convinced, that it is appointed for all... Read More

The Power Of Persevering Prayer by Andrew Murray

AND THE LORD SAID, “Men ought always to pray, and not to faint… There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man: And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary. And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself,... Read More

The Uplifted Christ by R.A. Torrey

IN A RECENT ADVERTISEMENT OF A Sunday evening service in one of our American cities it was stated that there would be three attractions: a high-class movie show, a popular gospel pianist and his wife, rendered by a well-known prima donna. It is somewhat startling when an unusually gifted and popular... Read More

Unction! by Leonard Ravenhill

THE CINDERELLA OF THE CHURCH today is the prayer meeting. This handmaid of the Lord is unloved and unwooed because she is not dripping with pearls of intellectualism, nor glamorous with the silks of philosophy, neither is she enchanting with the tiara of psychology. She wears the homespuns of sincer... Read More

Undefiled Religion by George Fox

Trust Not In Man FRIENDS, TRUST NOT IN MAN, nor in the arm of flesh, neither put confidence in them, but in the Lord. Judge yourselves, and keep down the boaster, and that which would be high; under judgment keep that down, but the power of God in yourselves, lest the Lord God bring upon you somethi... Read More
