Unceasing Fellowship
      Sometimes we hear Christians talking about God hiding his face. God can indeed do this, but there are only two things which can ever cause him to do it—sin and unbelief. It is the very nature of the sun to shine; it can’t help shining on and on. God is lo ... read more

Undivided Consecration
      "And Ittai answered the king and said, As the Lord liveth, surely in what place my lord the king shall be, whether in death or life, even there also will thy servant be" 2 Samuel 15:21. "Whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he ca ... read more

Waiting for the Coming of His Son
      Waiting on God and waiting for His Son were both initiated in view of the other and cannot be separated. Waiting on God for His presence and power in our daily life is the only true preparation for waiting for Christ in humility and true holiness. Waiting ... read more

Waiting for the Spirit.
      He charged them to wait for the promise of the Father, which said he, ye heard from me.'-ACTS 1: 4. In the life of the Old Testament saints ,waiting was one of the loved words in which they expressed the posture of their souls towards God. They waited ... read more

Walking by the Spirit
      Walk by the Spirit and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. They that are of Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh, with the passions and lusts thereof. If we live by the Spirit, by the Spirit let us also walk.'--Gal.5:16, 24, 25, 'IF we live by ... read more

We are called to live an unworldly life
      The whole of society around us, as far as it is not very definitely ruled by the Spirit of God, constitutes an environment, an atmosphere from which, at every pore, we breathe in the infection of a life that is estranged from God. And yet, because it is a ... read more

We are praying for a revival.
      We are praying for a revival. We are praying for a mighty renewing of God’s Holy Spirit. Are we really preaching to God’s people that the one object that lies nearest God’s heart, and for which he is willing to give the Spirit in power, is to enable every ... read more

We must live as the channels of God’s love to a perishing world.
      Alas, how little the church understands or teaches this — that every believer, just like every branch on a tree, exists only to bring fruit and blessing for the glory of the husbandman and the life of men. Christ gave God’s love in charge to his people, e ... read more

We Must Receive the Kingdom as Little Children
      How did the Prince of Wales become heir to the throne of England? He received the kingdom by his birth as a little child. He was born to it. In a similar way we must be born by the Holy Spirit into the simplicity of heart which will receive the Kingdom as ... read more

We need a spiritual ear and eye to know more of God
      As the Spirit of God, the Creator, he has the mysterious power of entering and inhabiting the spirit of man. As the Spirit of God the Redeemer, he has given us a new spirit, within which he dwells and acts, secretly inspiring it with all the life and grac ... read more

we shall learn to sing of judgment and mercy.
      Since sin entered into the world the two great attributes which we need to know by experience, if we are to know God, are the two which are united in his holiness: his righteousness and his love. In Ezekiel we find that it is in the revelation of these ... read more

What a change it would make in a church if…
      What a change it would make in a church if there were a number of men and women given over to be thus taught and led by the Spirit of God. And what a change in our meetings for worship or for work, in our churches or our assemblies and councils, if men an ... read more

what a solemn thing it is to offer ourselves as intercessors with God…
      As we study and see what God has promised, and connect that with the individual churches or the larger bodies to which we belong, we shall feel what a solemn thing it is to offer ourselves as intercessors with God, and witnesses with men, in regard to the ... read more

What Does Consecration Mean?
      I want us to think about what consecration means. The Lord Jesus thought the heathen world was worth so much that he gave his blood for it. May God give you and me the grace to get a clearer understanding of consecration, and may we come one step closer t ... read more

What is God like?
      Dear reader, we have such wrong thoughts of God. What is God like? I know no image more beautiful and instructive than that of the sun. The sun is never weary of shining;--of pouring out his beneficent rays upon both the good and the evil. You might close ... read more

What is the nature of a true missionary revival?
      What must be the nature of a true missionary revival? An increased missionary interest, awakened by intelligence from the field, and stirring appeals, is not enough. It is simply temporary, passing away after a time. We need a devotion and an enthusia ... read more

What Kind of revival Do We Need?
      How is the church to be lifted up to the abundant life in Christ, which will fit her for the work that God is putting before Her? Nothing will help but a revival, nothing less than a tremendous spiritual revival. Great tides of spiritual energy must be pu ... read more

What Kind of Revival Do We Need?

What Salvation Is
      THIS IS SALVATION. It is not what many think it is – depending upon a certain work which Christ has done, or believing certain truths which he has revealed, or doing certain things which he has commanded. All these things have their value and are necessar ... read more

What the Scriptures Teach About the Blood
      "Not Without Blood"-Heb. ix. 7 and 18. GOD has spoken to us in the Scriptures in divers portions and in divers manners; but the VOICE is ever the same, it is always the WORD of the same GOD. Hence the importance of treating the Bible as a whole, and ... read more

What wilt thou?
      ‘And Jesus answered him, and said, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee?’—Mark x. 51; Luke xviii. 41. THE blind man had been crying out aloud, and that a great deal, ‘Thou Son of David, have mercy on me.’ The cry had reached the ear of the ... read more

Whatever is not of the love of God… is of the world and its spirit.
      If it is true that the prince of darkness came as an angel of light, deceiving the very elect, that the god of this world blinds the eyes, how we need in the enquiry as to the state of the church and our own state to set aside all self-confidence, and to ... read more

Whatsoever Ye Will
      If Ye Abide in Me, and My Words Abide in You, Ask Whatsoever Ye Will, and it Shall be Done Unto You—John 15.7 The Whole place of the branch in the vine is one of unceasing prayer. Without intermission it is ever calling: “O my vine, send the sap ... read more

Who Christ Is
      The first chapter of John’s Gospel also teaches us who Christ is. John the Baptist twice proclaims him the Lamb of God. Jesus carried that name to the throne of God, and bears it there for all eternity. It has a double meaning. First, it speaks of the wor ... read more

Whose is this image?
      ‘He saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription?—Matt. xxi. 20. ‘And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.’—Gen. i. 26. ‘WHOSE is this image?’ It was by this question that Jesus foiled His enemies, when they ... read more

Whosoever believeth might not perish.
      Our text says ‘that whosoever believeth might not perish’! Without Christ they must perish. Think of all the inconceivable sin and wretchedness the life on earth implies and then of all the hopelessness for the world to come. Read some missionary book, gi ... read more

will be the mark of the normal Christian life.
      More than one person has said: We have been playing at missions. And yet how we congratulate ourselves on all the wakened missionary interest. And all the while the number of believers who really follow in the footsteps of Christ, and count it their joy t ... read more

Withered Branches
      If a Man Abide Not in Me, He is Cast Forth as a Branch, and is Withered; and They Gather Them, and Cast Them into the Fire, and They are Burned—John 15.6 The lessons these words teach are very simple and very solemn. A man can come to such a conn ... read more

Work in Order to Receive
      Do not try to hide your treasure; do not think that you can hide it if Jesus is truly with you! I remember a true story about a little girl who used to sing hymns which she had learned at some meetings led by the evangelist D.L. Moody. The child’s parents ... read more

Worship in the Spirit
      'The hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in Spirit and in truth; for such doth the Father seek to be His worshippers. God is a Spirit, and they that worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and in truth.'--John 4: 23, ... read more

Ye shall know that I am the Lord
      It is well known that the keyword of the prophet Ezekial, occurring more than 60 times, is this, “Ye shall know that I am the Lord.” To know God is eternal life. It is the privilege, the joy, the strength of his people. God can bestow no higher favour tha ... read more

Ye The Branches
      I Am The Vine, Ye Are the Branches—John 15.5 Christ had already said much of the branch; here He comes to the personal application: “Ye are the branches of whom I have been speaking. As I am the Vine, engaged to be and do all the branches need, s ... read more

Ye, Even As I
      If Ye Keep My Commandments, Ye Shall Abide in My Love, Even as I have Kept My Father’s Commandments, and Abide in His Love—John 15.10 We have had occasion more than once to speak of the perfect similarity of the vine and the branch in nature, and ... read more

yield to the spirit of God to cast out the spirit of this world.
      Some of my readers have already been saying, But how can we influence our fellow-men if we withdraw ourselves from them, if we are to live such an unworldly life? Let us remember, the power of this world lies in its deceit. It is a kingdom of darkness. ‘T ... read more

You Can Do Nothing
      Apart From Me Ye Can Do Nothing—John 15.5 In everything the life of the branch is to be the exact counterpart of that of the Vine. Of Himself Jesus had said: “The Son can do nothing of himself.” As the outcome of that entire dependence, He could ... read more

‘And to be desired to make one wise.’
      ‘And to be desired to make one wise.’ Man has a spirit capable of knowing and enjoying God. That spiritual nature was turned to the world to seek in it and its wisdom the knowledge of good and evil. And so the wisdom of this world, with its boasted reason ... read more

‘God is in you of a truth’
      In a revival which is truly to lift the church to its true position, making men say, ‘God is in you of a truth’, nothing is so essential as that they be restored to the position for which man was created, that God be allowed to have his way with them, and ... read more

“For of him, and through him, and to him are all things…” Rom. 11:36
      The revival is to come from God; all that it is to work is to be wrought through him; its aim and end is to lead up to him, to give us more of him, his presence and power, in the church. The desire to know and honour, to serve and glorify God more, mus ... read more

“… made void by man’s wisdom.”
      Of all preaching of the cross, of missions, of the entire consecration to God and his work that is in the power of the Holy Spirit, Christ has said: “made void by man’s wisdom.” The faith which comes by such speaking stands with wisdom of men, and n ... read more

“… the heresy of heresies is a worldly spirit.”
      Every heresy, every neglect or denial of God’s truth, weakens the spiritual life. The rejection of the faith in the divinity of Christ, of the atonement through blood, or justification by faith, or regeneration by the Spirit, endangers the life of the chu ... read more

… the love of the world makes the love of God impossible.
      And wherein now does this spirit of the world show itself, and wherein does its sinfulness consist? ‘If any man love the world the love of the Father is not in him.’ As the great and first commandment is, ‘Love the lord thy God with all thy heart,’ so the ... read more
