The Essential Seal and Constitution of the Christian Life

T. Austin-SparksReading: Acts 18:24-19:6a. "Did ye receive the Holy Spirit when ye believed?" Let it be said at once that we are not here attempting to expound the person and work of the Holy Spirit, but are seeking to emphasize the importance of the Holy Spirit's personal presence within believers. The Terms Expla... Read More

"My son, fear thou the Lord and the king: and meddle not with them that are given to change" (Proverbs 24.21). During the Lewis revival I well recall the mighty impact made as the powerful breath of the Spirit touched community after community. Everywhere, men and women of all ages became convicted,...

Bible Verses on Topic of Christian Persecution

Gospel FellowshipsReason for Persecution: The Cross separates us from the world John 15:18-21 “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hate... Read More

The Apostate's Lifestyle

Let us open our Bibles to 2 Peter 2:10-16: But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities. Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusat... Read More

2 Corinthians 6

John Nelson Darby"Workers together with him." "With him" is not exactly right; the "with" is there, but not the "him." I believe the idea is that of workers with one another; they are companions or journeymen, because they work together. "We then as co-workers beseech that ye [Corinthians] receive not the grace of G... Read More

Are the Newman Street teachers (Catholic Apostolic) sent of God?

John Nelson DarbyIt is the character of heresy always to conceal itself, to cover the plain statement of the doctrine which forms its basis, or to misdirect the attention, so that the evil really introduced by the heresy may not be apparent. Heresy is not merely error; it is the power of error in seducing men's mind... Read More

Has the Church Continued in God's Goodness?

John Nelson DarbyMatthew 13. Has the church continued in God's goodness? Is that which we now see in Christendom what God set up in His church in the beginning, or anything like it? Has not the professing church turned to ceremonies and sacraments, and all kinds of things other than Christ, in order to be saved by t... Read More

Matthew 16:13-28

John Nelson DarbyDear Mr. Editor, I venture to send a few disconnected notes taken many years ago at a lecture by J. N. D. on Matt. 16:13-28. As they are disconnected and imperfect I must, of course, be responsible for them in case I have missed the teacher's thoughts anywhere. I send them as I find them, in an old ... Read More

Reading on 2 Timothy 3

John Nelson DarbyPaul first speaks of the fact that Timothy had known the Holy Scriptures (v. 15); and then he says of every Scripture that it is inspired of God (v. 16). It is an important word, 'Scripture.' Prophecies may have died and passed away, as in the case of Agabus, who prophesied a famine coming; there ma... Read More
