Great Christian Works
Days of Heaven Upon Earth By A. B. Simpson
This great devotional written by A. B. Simpson is filled with the wisdom of many years of Bible study. Go to it daily for a new gem from God's great treasure store house of the scriptures.
The Person and Work of the Holy Spirit By R. A. Torrey
A frequent source of error and fanaticism about the work of the Holy Spirit is the attempt to study and understand His work without first of all coming to know Him as a Person. If the Holy Spirit is a person, and a Divine Person, and we do not know Him as such, then we are robbing a Divine Being of the worship and the faith and the love and the surrender to Himself which are His due.
The Mischief of Sin By Thomas Watson
There is a generation among us of whom I may say, that they militate against religion. They are so exceedingly profane that they esteem the Bible to be a fable, and would jeer all holiness out of the world! The "prince of the power of the air" now works in the children of disobedience.
Days of Heaven Upon Earth By A. B. Simpson
A daily devitional: "Be spiritually alert; be not unwise, but understanding what the will of God is. 'Walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, buying up for yourselves the opportunity'".
The Beatitudes By Arthur W. Pink
It needs to be borne in mind that this sermon was Christ's first utterance to the general public, who had been reared in a defective Judaism. It was possibly His first discourse to the disciples, too. His design was not only to teach Christian ethics but to expose the errors of Pharisaism and to awaken the consciences of His legalistic hearers.
Spiritual Growth By Arthur W. Pink
Physical growth is beyond human comprehension. We know something of what is essential to it, and the thing itself may be discovered, but the operation and process is hidden from us: "As thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child, even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all" (Eccl. 11:5). How much more so must spiritual growth be incomprehensible.
The Centrality of the Cross By Jessie Penn-Lewis
The death of the Lord Jesus Christ was a substitutionary and a propitiatory sacrifice. The Cross is therefore central for justification, and central for the forgiveness of sins, and the justification of the sinner. Here lies the bed rock depth of the Cross, as the 'fixed point' for the personal life of the believer, personal equipment, and personal victory in every aspect of need.
Filled Unto All the Fulness of God By T. Austin-Sparks
The field of our meditation will mainly be in the book of Joshua and the letters to the Ephesians and Colossians. The fragment which is the key to this meditation is in Ephesians 4:13: "Till we all attain unto the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a full-grown man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ".
Divine Healing By Andrew Murray
The publication of this work may be regarded as a testimony of my faith in divine healing. After being stopped for more than two years in the exercise of my ministry, I was healed by the mercy of God in answer to the prayer of those who see in Him "the Lord that healeth thee".
The Spirit of Christ By Andrew Murray
The Spirit of God's own Son, sent into our hearts to do each moment a work as Divine as the work of the Son in redeeming us, to displace our life and replace it by the life of Christ in power, to make the Son of God divinely and consciously present with us always.
Spiritual Sight By T. Austin-Sparks
The masses are blind; there is no doubt about that. In a day which is supposed to be a day of unequalled enlightenment, the masses are blind. The leaders are blind, blind leaders of the blind. But in a very large measure, the same is true of the Lord's people. Speaking quite generally, Christians are today very blind.
Comfort for Christians By Arthur W. Pink
"There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus." To be in Christ Jesus is to be perfectly identified with Him in the judicial reckoning and dealings of God: and it is also to be one with Him as vitally united by faith. Immunity from condemnation does not depend in any wise upon our "walk," but solely on our being "in Christ."
The Privy Key of Heaven By Thomas Brooks
"But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you." Matthew 6:6
Christ A Complete Saviour By John Bunyan
'Wherefore He Is Able Also To Save Them To The Uttermost That Come Unto God By Him, Seeing He Ever Liveth To Make Intercession For Them.' Hebrews 7:25. The apostle, in this chapter, presenteth us with two things; that is, with the greatness of the person and of the priesthood of our Lord Jesus.
Evangelistic Talks By Gipsy Smith
"If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from Heaven and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." II Chronicles 7:14
Quiet Talks On Service By S. D. Gordon
His simple story of that afternoon contains in it the three steps that begin all service. They looked at Jesus; they talked with Jesus; forever to the end of their lives they talked about Him. Here are the two personal contacts that underlie all service, that lead into all service. The close personal contact with Jesus begun and continued.
Quiet Talks on Prayer By S. D. Gordon
The greatest thing any one can do for God and for man is to pray. It is not the only thing. But it is the chief thing. A correct balancing of the possible powers one may exert puts it first. For if a man is to pray right, he must first be right in his motives and life.
The Character of Jesus By Horace Bushnell
It is the grand peculiarity of the sacred writings, that they deal in supernatural events and transactions, and show the fact of a celestial institution finally erected on earth, which is fitly called the kingdom of God; because it shows Him reigning, as a Regenerator and Restorer of the broken order of the world.
Lord Teach Us To Pray By Alexander Whyte
Ever since the day of Christ, it has been the lowest of the people, those lowest that is, in other men's eyes, and in their own, it has been the poor and the despised, and the meek, and the hidden, and the down trodden, and the silent, who have had secret power and privilege with God, and have prevailed.
The Redeemer's Return By Arthur W. Pink
So grievously has the study of Prophecy been ignored, so little place is given in the modern pulpit to the exposition of eschatology, and so generally is the daily reading of the Bible neglected by those in the pew, that it is an easy matter to persuade the average church-goer that the subject of the Second Coming of Christ is impractical and one that had better be left alone.
Faith That Prevails By Smith Wigglesworth
Read Hebrews 11;1-11. I believe that there is only one way to all the treasures of God, and that is the way of faith. By faith and faith alone do we enter into a knowledge of the attributes and become partakers of the beatitudes, and participate in the glories of our ascended Lord.
Soul Help By Beverly Carradine
Mystery after mystery rolls up before us in the questions, What is spirit, and how can it act independently of matter? And when does the soul begin its existence; and is it generated or created? Does it exist seminally, or is it a direct creation of God in the womb?
The Way Into The Holiest By F. B. Meyer
Expositions Of The Epistle To The Hebrews: This Epistle bears no name of author, or designation of church. But it needs neither. In every sentence we can detect the Authorship of the Holy Ghost: and feel that it has a message not to one age, but to all; not to one community, but to the universal Church.
Victory Over Temptation By W. B. Walker
We should know the nature, the cunningness, and the devices of Satan. All true believers should be rightly informed of the existence of Satan. For Satan is the source of sin, suffering, temptation, and sorrow and death.
The Callused Knees By George Brubaker Kulp
This work is sent forth in humble faith and prayer that it may prove an inspiration to men
and women to "pray without ceasing," knowing by experience "they that that wait upon the Lord do renew their strength, they mount up with wings as eagles, they run and are not weary, they walk and are not faint."
Progress After Entire Sanctification By Arthur Zepp
If evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, shall it be thought a thing incredible that the purified shall grow from strength to strength, from grace to grace, and from glory to glory? Will not purity, which is the soul's wealth and health, prepare it to grow with increasing vigor, beauty and symmetry?
Where Art Thou? By Lewis Williams
All of God's true prophets have a message, and this brother surely has one, received fresh from the skies. His words burn like fire and rive like thunderbolts. The truth flashes from his piercing eyes and leaps through his lips from his glowing heart, all aflame with the love of God and a deathless passion for souls.
The Works of Catherine Booth By Catherine Booth
Resolve to obey the call of God and the command of Jesus, and He will fill you with His Spirit. Do it. Never mind thinking He might ask you to do something that chokes you. Declare, "I will die in obedience rather than live in disobedience."
The Life and Diary of the Rev. David Brainerd
It is fit the reader should be aware, that what Mr. Brainerd wrote in his diary, out of which the following account of his life is chiefly taken, was written only for his own private use, and not to get honour and applause in the world, nor with any design that the world should ever see it.
Prayer Availeth Much By T. M. Anderson
It is my sincere desire to encourage God's people to pray without ceasing. When once they understand the fundamental principles of prayer, they will not find it difficult to accomplish some amazing results through effectual fervent intercession.
Spiritual Exercises Of The Heart By Thomas Reade
he Bible is the sacred storehouse of heavenly wisdom. Its pages are stamped with the divine seal of eternal truth, and contain the charter of our hopes, our privileges, and our joys. Whatever tends to lead us from the love and study of the Holy Scriptures, should be dreaded as inimical to the highest interests of mankind.
Prevailing Prayer By D. L. Moody
Those who have left the deepest impression on this sin cursed earth have been men and women of prayer. You will find that, PRAYER has been the mighty power that has moved not only God, but man. Abraham was a man of prayer, and angels came down from heaven to converse with him.
In His Steps By Charles M. Sheldon
The story "In His Steps" was written in 1896, and it was read a chapter at a time to my young people, Sunday evenings in the Central Congregational Church, Topeka, Kansas. While conditions have changed in the years since the story was written, the principle of human conduct remains the same.
The New Life By Andrew Murray
I have confined myself in these reflections to some of the most important topics. The first is the Word of God as the glorious and sure guide, even for the simplest souls that will only surrender themselves to it.
The Trinity By Loraine Boettner
The doctrine of the Trinity is perhaps the most mysterious and difficult doctrine that is presented to us in the entire range of Scripture. Consequently we do not presume to give a full explanation of it.
Wanderings Of A Pilgrim By David Harsha
The design of this essay is to contemplate the Christian's journey through the wilderness of this world to a better land, even the Heavenly Canaan, "All, on earth, is shadow; all beyond is substance."
The Fourfold Gospel By A. B. Simpson
The message is simple, Scriptural, and satisfying. The Church needs it as antidote to error and apostasy, a sure remedy for failure, an answer to the cry of hungry hearts, a source of health for the body and an inspiration to complete the witness and bring back the King.
On Christian Doctrine By Augustine
The four books of St. Augustin On Christian Doctrine (De Doctrina Christiana, iv libri) are a compend of exegetical theology to guide the reader in the understanding and interpretation of the Sacred Scriptures, according to the analogy of faith. The first three books were written A.D. 397; the fourth was added 426.
On The Mortification Of Sin In Believers By John Owen
I shall lay the foundation of it in those words of the apostle, Romans 8:13, "If ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body ye shall live;" Three things are here to be inquired into: (1.) What is meant by the body; (2.) What by the deeds of the body; (3.) What by mortifying of them.
None Like Christ By Octavius Winslow
"How is your beloved better than others?" Song of Solomon 5:9 It is a humiliating fact, that there exists no object, the most trivial and contemptible, which the unrenewed mind will not place in competition with, and choose in preference to, and delight in to the exclusion of the Lord Jesus Christ!
Bible Thoughts and Themes By Horatius Bonar
Bonor deals with numerous thoughts and themes of the Old Testament expounding on subjects like Deliverance, Divine Loving Kindness, Sin, the Sinner and many more. A great devotional tool for all ages.
Heaven By D. L. Moody
A great many persons imagine that anything said about heaven is only a matter of speculation. They talk about heaven much as they would about the air. Now there would not have been so much in Scripture on this subject if God had wanted to leave the human race in darkness about it. What the Bible says about heaven is just as true as what it says about everything else. The Bible is inspired.
Working For God! By Andrew Murray
The object of this little book is first of all to remind all Christian workers of the greatness and the glory of the work in which God gives a share. It is nothing less than that work of bringing men back to their God, at which God finds His highest glory and blessedness.
Natural Emblems Of Spiritual Life By A. B. Simpson
Simpson founded a major evangelical denomination, published over seventy books, edited a weekly magazine for nearly forty years, and wrote many gospel songs and poems.
A Commentary on the Psalms By Henry Law
It traverses every condition of man. It roams with the shepherd in the meadows. It sits with the mighty monarch on the throne. It flees with the fugitive on the hills, and hides with him in the caves. It leads the conquering host to victory. It walks with the busy in the crowded haunts, and leaves not the lonely in their solitude. No words more cheer the dying saint.
The Holiest Of All By Andrew Murray
God hath spoken! The magnificent portal by which we enter into the temple in which God is to reveal His glory to us! We are at once brought into the presence of God Himself. The one object of the Epistle is to lead us to God, to reveal God, to bring us into contact with Himself. Man was created for God.
Covetousness By William Gouge
Covetousness is an immoderate desire of riches. The apostle implieth as much, under this phrase, boulomenoi ploutein they that will be rich, 1 Tim. vi. 9; under that word, will, a desire, and that unsatiable desire, is comprised. The notation of both the words before mentioned, namely, love of silver and desire of having more, do demonstrate that covetousness consisteth in a desire.
The Lord for the Body By A. B. Simpson
Because the subject of the Lord's Healing is now so widely discussed in Christian circles, it is hard to realize that only a generation ago but few teachers ever touched upon this phase of Scriptural doctrine.
Ancient Prophets By Samuel Logan Brengle
My daily reading has again brought me into company with the great prophets Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Hosea, Micah, Malachi, and others, and I live again with them in the midst of the throbbing, tumultuous, teeming life of old Jerusalem, Samaria, Egypt, and Babylon. These prophets are old friends of mine.
Heaven Taken by Storm By Thomas Watson
What went ye out for to see? A prophet? yea, I say unto you, and more than a prophet" Verse 11. Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: he was eminent both for dignity of office and perspicuity of doctrine; and so our text is ushered in: From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.
The Ten Commandments By Thomas Watson
It is not enough to hear God's voice, but we must obey. Obedience is a part of the honour we owe to God. 'If then I be a Father, where is my honour?' Mal 1: 6. Obedience carries in it the life-blood of religion. 'Obey the voice of the Lord God,' and do his commandments. Obedience without knowledge is blind, and knowledge without obedience is lame.
Precious Remedies Against Satan's Devices By Thomas Brooks
Remember, it is not hasty reading-but serious meditating upon holy and heavenly truths, that make them prove sweet and profitable to the soul. It is not the bee's touching of the flower, which gathers honey-but her abiding for a time upon the flower, which draws out the sweet. It is not he who reads most-but he who meditates most, who will prove the choicest, sweetest, wisest and strongest Christian.
Natural Law In The Spiritual World By Henry Drummond
Is there not reason to believe that many of the Laws of the Spiritual World, hitherto regarded as occupying an entirely separate province, are simply the Laws of the Natural World? Can we identify the Natural Laws, or any one of them, in the Spiritual sphere?
Holiness By J. C. Ryle
He who wishes to attain right views about Christian holiness must begin by examining the vast and solemn subject of sin. He must dig down very low if he would build high. Wrong views about holiness are generally traceable to wrong views about human corruption. I make no apology for beginning this volume of messages about holiness by making some plain statements about sin.
