A Clean Church by Seth Rees

Cure Proud Flesh PROUD FLESH REQUIRES the fire. Nothing rivals it in the dispatch and effectiveness with which it does its work. A Boston physician told me that, with all the modern discoveries of science, there had been nothing found that would do but fire. In the moral world there is nothing obtai... Read More

A New Type of Preacher by A.W. Tozer

BUT NONE OF THESE THINGS move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God. --Acts 20:24 If Christianity is to receive a rejuvenation, it must be by other means th...

Address On Revival by Duncan Campbell

Unless Revival Comes "WILT THOU NOT REVIVE us again: that Thy people may rejoice in thee?" (Psalm 85.6). These words of the Psalmist express the heart-cry of many of God's children today. There is a growing conviction everywhere, and especially among thoughtful people, that unless revival comes, oth... Read More

Admonition To England by John Knox

"THE EYES OF THE LORD are upon every sinful nation, to root it out of the earth." (Amos 9). For thy unthankfulness, O England, He suffereth false teachers to be a burden unto thee, whom if thou dost receive and allow their doctrine, be thou well assured His great wrath cometh shortly after to thy de...

Aggressive Christianity by A.B. Simpson

AGGRESSIVE CHRISTIANITY IS the world's greatest need. Shall I try to make you understand the awful condition of the majority of our fellow beings in heathen lands? Can you take in the idea of a thousand millions without the Gospel? Suppose we were to bring them into this Tabernacle a thousand at a t... Read More

Count Zinzendorf by David Smithers

THROUGHOUT THE HISTORY of the Church, it has always been the most ardent lovers of Jesus who have felt the greatest need for more of His presence. Surely it is with this class of saints that Count Zinzendorf belongs. For Zinzendorf, loving fellowship with Christ was the essential manifestation of th... Read More

David Brainerd by David Smithers

SOME CHRISTIANS MAY have a difficult time understanding David Brainerd's zeal and love for JESUS. "To him the material and physical world had little value. He was of the race of the early martyrs. To him all things were naught that he might attain a deeper spiritual fellowship with God." Brainerd's ... Read More

Gilbert Tennent by David Smithers

HE LABORED AS NEVER before to, "Sound the trumpet of God's judgment and alarm the secure by the terrors of the Lord." He was a man literally consumed with a vision of the holiness of God. As a result he urgently warned the stubborn sinner and hypocrite of a final judgment and eternal hell. The anoin... Read More

Half the Diseases of Christianity by J.C. Ryle

All Ministers Saved? "THESE ARE THE NAMES of the twelve apostles... and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed Him." Mt. 10:2-4??We are taught here, that all ministers are not necessarily saved men. We see our Lord choosing a Judas Iscariot to be one of His apostles. We cannot doubt that He who knew all heart... Read More

Ministerial Confessions by Horatius Bonar

Carnal And Unspiritual WE HAVE BEEN CARNAL and unspiritual. The tone of our life has been low and earthly. Associating too much and too intimately with the world, we have in a great measure become accustomed to its ways. Hence our spiritual tastes have been vitiated, our consciences blunted, and tha...

Practical Holiness by J.C. Ryle

Without Holiness? "HOLINESS, WITHOUT WHICH NO man shall see the Lord" (Heb. 12:14). The text which heads this page opens up a subject of deep importance. That subject is practical holiness. It suggests a question which demands the attention of all professing Christians: are we holy? Shall we see the... Read More

Prayer That Moves God by brother Greg

Strong Crying OH BRETHREN THE HIGHEST form of worship and speech is prayer. We need to see praying that is bold, that is strong. Praying that moves God is prayer that moves us. If we are not moved by our prayers how do we expect them to move God? Our Master here on earth had “strong crying and tears... Read More

Preaching With Passion by G. Campbell Morgan

IN THE TRUE SERMON there must always be passion. Our Lord’s testimony concerning John, His forerunner, was this: "He was a burning and a shining light" (John 5:35). It is one thing to shine; it is quite another to burn as well. Half the sermons today--may I be forgiven if I am cruel--are failing bec... Read More

Price and Power of Revival by Duncan Campbell

Unction From On High THERE IS A POWER THAT IS placed at the disposal of the Church that can outmaneuver and baffle the very strategy of Hell, and cause death and defeat to vanish before the presence of the Lord of Life. Barrenness is made to feel His fertilizing power. Yet, how is it that while we m... Read More

The Hebrides Revival 1949 by Duncan Campbell

A Gracious Move How did this gracious movement begin? In 1949, the local presbytery issued a proclamation to be read on a certain Sunday in all the Free Churches on the Island of Lewis. This proclamation called the people to consider the "low state of vital religion . . . throughout the land . . . a... Read More

The Kind of Revival We Need by C.H. Spurgeon

WE WANT A REVIVAL OF old-fashioned doctrine. I know not a single doctrine which is not at this hour studiously undermined by those who ought to be its defenders. There is not a truth that is precious to the soul which is not now denied by those whose profession it is to proclaim it. To me it is clea... Read More

The Need of Personal Revival by Richard Baxter

Ashamed Of My Stupidity I KNOW NOT WHAT others think, but for my own part I am ashamed of my stupidity, and wonder at myself that I deal not with my own and others souls as one that looks for the great day of the Lord; and that I can have room for almost any other thoughts and words; and that such a...

We Wrestle Not by Leonard Ravenhill

THE VERSATILITY OF PAUL is amazing. To the Thessalonians the very same man who stormed down the road to Damascus is "as gentle as a nurse"; to the Romans he reveals the brilliance of his legal mind; and to the Corinthians he is "a wise master builder." But to Timothy, Paul is "a soldier of Jesus Chr... Read More
