His evangelistic campaigns took him to England, the West Indies, New Zealand, Australia, Japan and Korea. he Master's work continued to a part of his life well into his advanced years. But even then, he only refrained from the calling that had been placed upon him when his health was in question. He also wrote several books.

It was while serving in the confederate army that the Lord became a living reality to him. So heavy was the conviction of the Holy Spirit when the call was upon him for his eternal well-being that while in the midst of a game of cards, he threw down his hand stating to the others, it was his last game. And so it was! The next evening, August 11, 1863, his name became a permanent part of the registry in the book of life.

A Tender Heart
      Without tenderness of spirit the most intensely righteous, religious life is like the image of God without His beauty and attractiveness. It is possible to be very religious, and stanch, and persevering in all Christian duties, even to be sanctified, and ... read more

Alone With God
      We have to be alone with God in finding personal salvation. Others may be used as instruments in bringing conviction, light, help in various ways; but there comes a crisis, both in the work of regeneration and of sanctification, in which the soul must be ... read more

Beauty For Ashes: Part 1: Causes of Heart Wanderings
       I. HUMAN FRAILTY -- Throughout the Scriptures we are taught the infinite frailty and weakness of men; and even the best of men are set forth as having no strength of their own. Abraham said he was "but dust and ashes." Isaiah said, "We all do fade as a ... read more

Beauty For Ashes: Part 2: The Remedy for Heart Wanderings
       I. GREAT SELF-ABASEMENT -- I mention, as the first remedy for heart wanderings, great self-abasement before God; that the evil which the soul has fallen into is to be squarely faced and acknowledged without palliation, or excuse, or self-defense; that ... read more

Faint Not
       There is an experience of soul exactly like the fainting of the body. When a person faints there is an utter loss of strength accompanied with a real sickish feeling, paleness and a clammy sweat, causing the body to get limp, beyond the control of the wi ... read more

Grieving the Spirit of Revival
      A true revival is preeminently the work of the Holy Spirit, and the depth and magnitude of the work depends largely on the number of people who are in perfect union with the Holy Spirit. In times of revival all spiritual forces come to a crisis, both good ... read more

Hindrances to Faith
      "O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?" Matt. 14:31. The pivot word in this question is "wherefore." Doubt should have a sufficient reason for it. Neither Peter nor any other has been able to find a satisfactory answer to this all-p ... read more

Holy Ghost Tears
      Tears have a language just as definite and emphatic as smiles or gestures. Words do not constitute the only language we speak, for everywhere there are many languages spoken by every human being. There is a language in our gait, our tones of voice, our ey ... read more

How to Die to Selfishness
      1. How to Die to Selfishness "For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live."--Romans 8:13 Before we can begin to explore the Biblical principles for self-denia ... read more

Liquid and Solid Food
       In the fifth chapter of Hebrews we have a significant hint as to what constitutes spiritual perfection; it is the difference between feeding on liquid and solid food, or the difference between chewing and sucking. " For when for the time ye ought to be t ... read more

Loving Jesus
      We have a revelation of God's personal feelings in the first commandment. We are to love Him with all our heart! The complaint that Jesus had against the Church at Ephesus was their lack of fervent, personal love for Him; they had "works" and "labor" ... read more

Others May, You Cannot
      Galatians 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. If God has called you to be r ... read more

Tenderness of Spirit
       It is much easier to convince a human soul of its natural impurity than to convince it of its natural hardness, and utter destitution of heavenly and divine tenderness of Spirit. The very essence of the Gospel is a divinely imparted tenderness and swee ... read more

The Bride's Desire: Lessons From The Song Of Solomon
      "Catch us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vines, for our vines have tender grapes." (Song 2:15). This is the Bride's prayer that all the defects and faults connected with her life may be utterly removed, that she may have not only a persona ... read more

The Holy Spirit's Presence
      Dear Holy Spirit, who can know The Comforter Thou art, Till they have felt deep need of Thee From out a broken heart. Ten thousand griefs, dear Lord, have swept Across this heart of mine, But every one has pushe ... read more

The Secret of Spiritual Power (A)
       A great deal has been said and written upon the subject of spiritual power, and perhaps I can add nothing original upon the subject, but may help to stir up some pure minds by way of remembrance. While attending a holiness convention in Star Hal ... read more

The Secret of Spiritual Power (B)
       Another condition essential to the full enduement of spiritual power is the crucifixion of self in order that we may be united with the Holy Ghost. God cannot fill us with His Spirit, illuminate us, empower us with courage and boldness, and that intuiti ... read more

The Secret of Spiritual Power (C)
      Another secret of spiritual power lies in the perpetual ignoring of our creature ability. I do not say a perpetual denying of our ability. Telling an untruth never helps God any, whether it be against ourselves or against Satan, and if we represent oursel ... read more

The Secret of Spiritual Power (D)
       Another secret of divine power consists in using only the appropriate truth which is requisite for the salvation of souls. The Holy Ghost works through the truth, and whether He convicts for sin, or regenerates, or sanctifies, or empowers, or imparts spe ... read more

The Secret of Spiritual Power (E)
       In order to have the abiding secret of power, we must consent to seeming failure for Jesus. I do not know how that thought may strike you, but if you will look at the great crisal events in the Bible, and into the lives of people of great faith, you will ... read more

The Secret of Spiritual Power (F)
      The concluding thought in connection with the secret of power is, we must constantly recognize the presence of the Holy Spirit. There is a marvelous secret of strength in recollecting the divine presence in us and in the work God calls us to. "Moses endur ... read more
