Ada Renshaw - The Bible - Special Meetings - Murray Bridge, Australia - 1981

The last verse of hymn 48 in the leaflet, if everyone came with that prayer in our hearts, there will be blessing in these meetings for us. The writer of the hymn, Sam Jones, must have had a yearning in his heart about this word of God and confidence as to the result if he was willing to obey. It speaks about, give me the Bible. It is like a prayer. Then he realised all heaven was interested in what he would do about this matter. All heaven is pleading and I thought of that cloud of witnesses that is watching even us today to see how we are handling these precious privileges. Then it goes on to say, that we might know the counsel of God and obey. That is the reason why we would be gathered here today, the reason why we should read the Bible often. It is that we might know the counsel of God that we might obey it. If this is our condition of heart today, we will know what it means to be sheltering under the blood of Christ. We will know His redemption, His cleansing, and His forgiveness

Laplander Account - Further Information

In 1700, it is on record that a group of nomads came from Northern Russia and inhabited the most northerly islands in Norway.  They were Laplanders.  They weren't the first Laplanders to come over by any means, but this group came over in 1700.  Two sister workers were working in a town about 300 - 400 kms north of the Arctic Circle; they were from the States.  Their name was Sylvason.  They had a mission in this place.  There was an old lady interested.  She received the message well.  She had been waiting for it, for the gospel.  She said, "I have a friend who lives on an island, a bit further north from here, and I know that she will be very glad to meet you." The girls got on a freight boat at 9 o'clock at night, and they arrived on the island at 9 in the morning.  There was nothing between them and the North Pole.  The island was covered with snow, really deep, several metres deep.  When they arrived at the harbour that morning, some men had cleared a path and th

Wilson Reid - Ede Convention - Holland, 1955

[Ede is now Putten] I would like to speak to you about the first eight verses of Revelation 21.  You can open your Bibles while I read these verses.  We have 1,100 chapters in the Bible, but only two chapters which tell us about things that will happen after the Judgement Day, and they are written in Revelations 21 and 22. I would like to point out that these things written there are after the Judgement Day. We will look together at the verses written in the 20th chapter, starting at verse 11 where it tells about the Judgement Day.  This 11th verse shows us that the old heaven and the old earth will pass away.  That means the old heaven and earth as we are now on. The apostle Peter tells us that the old heaven and the old earth shall pass away, but not only does Peter tell us that, but the prophet Isaiah also records that. In Isaiah it says, “Behold I create a new heaven and a new earth, and the former things shall not be remembered nor come to mind.”  Isaiah 65.17, and then in chapter

Wilson Reid - Born of God - Irish Convention

John 1:13, “Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.” 2 Peter 1:4,”Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.”  1 John 2:29, “If ye know that He is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of Him.” 1 John 3:9-10, “Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.”  1 John 5:14-15, “And this is the confidence that we have in Him, that, if we ask any thing according to His will, He heareth us: and if we know that He hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of Him.”  It is a very serious thing to p

Wilson McClung - Pukekohe Convention - January 4-7, 1934

Peter speaks of a very important thing that must be in the life of the of God – it must be there. 1 Peter l:10, 11, 12. There is no Gospel preached and there is no soul saved, and there is no extension of the Kingdom of God apart form the preacher preaching the Gospel by the Holy Ghost sent down from Heaven, and there is no Holy Ghost where there is flesh working. We are not to drag down to our own level the precious things of God. The most important people in all the world today to God are His, and we know from experience in time passed, it is the devil’s aim to get people into the ministry to destroy and drag down and hinder the work of God. A Servant of God is not to be a social entertainer. He or she is not to come down to the social level. When you see a Servant of God, either brother or sister, that is too fond of the social side and that lives on the same level as the saints of God, mark the words of scripture, that brother or that sister will be ineffective in the work of God.

Willis Propp - Promise of the New Covenant - Williams Convention - 2001

Hymn 345, "I Will Journey All the Way" The Old Testament contains the old covenant, and the New Testament the new covenant in Jesus.  The Old Testament signifies the old covenant, in types and shadows, of the living way in Jesus.  There are two types mentioned here:  one is a man with his bride, living in sinless surroundings.  This is the natural man and his bride living in the Garden of Eden, but it is only a type and not the real thing.  In the last portion of the Bible we see a heavenly bridegroom with a heavenly bride in a sinless eternity, and we want to have a part in this. Another type is a nation set apart, a natural nation that found itself in natural bondage down in Egypt.  Then we see a nation delivered and a nation journeying to a natural promised land with natural blessings.  Jesus gave the terms of the new covenant to a spiritual nation made up of individual people from every nation and tribe, of every colour, kindred, and tongue, which will be represented ther

Willis Propp - Deliverance

II Corinthians 1:9-10, "But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raised the dead, Who delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver; in Whom we trust, that He will yet deliver us." It is this thought of present deliverance that is on my mind this morning. It was apparent by your testimonies that convention began last night. We are becoming more aware the Wednesday evening meeting is wonderful preparation from the Thursday meeting. Your quietness as you come into the meeting helps it to stay on course. Your prayers keep it on course. Your testimonies do that also, and we will seek to do our part so that this convention will be what God intends it should be. It is wonderful to come to a place like this, and some of you have been coming for many years. It seems so unnecessary in our land of liberty, but could you remember this morning our friends who do not have the privilege of fellowship, those who are isolat
