Voices from the past is a location where you can read great statements of encouragement from the great theologians of the past. We will be adding to this list as we discover more great statements and comments from VOICES FROM THE PAST
“Numbers of good men remain in fellowship with those who are undermining the Gospel and they talk of their conduct as if it were a loving course which the Lord will approve of in the day of His appearing. We cannot understand them. The duty of the true believer towards men who profess to be Christians, and yet deny the Word of the Lord and reject the fundamentals of the Gospel is to come out from among them. Complicity with error will take from the best of men the power to enter any successful protest against it.”
John Newton (1725-1807):
“‘Fear not temptation’s fiery day, for I will be thy strength and stay. Thou hast my promise, hold it fast, the trying hour will soon be past’”
Charles H. Spurgeon
“As for His failing you, never dream of it — hate the thought of it. The God who has been sufficient until now, should be trusted to the end.”
“I bear my witness that the worst days I have ever had have turned out to be my best days. And when God has seemed most cruel to me he has then been most kind. If there is anything in this world for which I would bless him more than for anything else it is for pain and affliction. I am sure that in these things the richest tenderest love has been manifested to me. Our Father’s wagons rumble most heavily when they are bringing us the richest freight of the bullion of his grace. Love letters from heaven are often sent in black-edged envelopes. The cloud that is black with horror is big with mercy. Fear not the storm. It brings healing in its wings and when Jesus is with you in the vessel the tempest only hastens the ship to its desired haven.”
No matter how unsettled the world becomes, God’s people can relax and keep their joy flowing, because our Lord has promised special protection when it is most needed.
28 Remove not the ancient landmark, which thy fathers have set.
it seems to me that a great shift in the Spirit has taken place in “praise and worship”. A “shift” caused by removing “ancient markers” in the Church. I’m talking about the abandonment of historical hymns and lyrics clearly inspired by the God who NEVER CHANGES. “On Christ the solid Rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand—-all other ground is sinking sand”.
