Free Friday! Able to the Uttermost

AbleUttermostHappy Friday everyone! Today’s free download, usually $9.95, is Able to the Uttermost by Charles Spurgeon. Click here to download.

 Now, for a very short time this evening I have to call your attention to the advocacy of Christ, and you will notice in the text that there are three points worthy of your careful observation. The first is that the participators in the benefit are mentioned—”they that come unto God by Him.” Secondly, the benefit itself is mentioned, and the extent of it. “He is able to save unto the uttermost.” And then, thirdly, concerning the benefactor, we have a teaching with regard to the source of His power to save: “Seeing He ever liveth to make intercession for them.” Briefly, then, upon each head.

Able to the Uttermost is a collection of twenty sermons by Charles Haddon Spurgeon described when released in 1922 as “Forgotten” sermons that were not published in the original 63-volume Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit complete set (1855-1917).

Few people in history can be known by one name and have it ring true with their audience, and “Spurgeon” is one of them. Over time, Spurgeon has become known and revered as the “Prince of Preachers“. In the last 200 years he has been one of the most influential men for not only Preachers of the Gospel but for those who have not had the opportunity to hear and receive the Gospel message. He wrote tirelessly over his life, and WORDsearch Bible Software is committed to bring as many of Spurgeon’s works as possible to you in electronic form.

Free Friday! The Application Of The Scriptures

application_scriptures_coverIt’s Free Friday and today’s free download, usually $4.95, is The Application Of The Scriptures by Arthur W. Pink. Click here to download.

The Bible consists of many parts, exquisitely correlated and vitally interdependent upon each other. God so controlled all the agents which He employed in the writing of it, and so coordinated their efforts, as to produce a single living Book. Within that organic unity there is indeed much variety, but no contrariety. Man’s body is but one, though it be made up of many members, diverse in size, character, and operation. The rainbow is but one, nevertheless it reflects distinctly the seven prismatic rays, yet they are harmoniously blended together. So it is with the Bible: its unity appears in the perfect consistency throughout of its teachings. The oneness yet triunity of God, the deity and humanity of Christ united in one Person, the everlasting covenant which secures the salvation of all the election of grace, the highway of holiness and the only path which leads to heaven, are plainly revealed in Old and New Testament alike. The teaching of the prophets concerning the glorious character of God, the changeless requirements of His righteousness, the total depravity of human nature, and the way appointed for restoration therefrom, are identical with the apostles’ teaching.

The Application of the Scriptures originally appeared as a series of five articles in Pink’s Studies of the Scriptures in June through October 1952. In these articles, Pink presents a simple and scriptural argument against the system of teaching known as dispensationalism.

Arthur Walkington Pink was born in Nottingham, England on April 1, 1886 and became a Christian in 1908, at the age of 22. Desiring to grow in knowledge of the Bible, Pink immigrated to the United States in 1910 to study at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago, Illinois. He left the Institute after two months and pastored a church in Silverton, Colorado. He becoming an traveling Bible teacher in 1919 and had short term pastorates in California, Kentucky and South Carolina.

Mr. Pink’s view of the Scriptures, of doctrine, and of Christian practice was not the view of the twentieth century, nor even of many of his contemporary Evangelicals. Few men have traveled so widely and yet remained so uninfluenced by prevailing opinions and accepted customs. When Puritan and reformed books were generally disregarded by the Church as a whole, he advanced the majority of their principles with untiring zeal. Events have justified his outlook. Two World Wars have substantiated his view on human depravity; the progressive decline of his nation (Britain) was to him the inevitable consequence of the prevalence of a gospel which is able neither to wound nor heal. Familiar with the whole range of revelation, Mr. Pink was rarely sidetracked from the great themes of Scripture: grace,justification, and sanctification. He was, in some ways, a Puritan born out of time.

Free Friday! Books that Bless

BooksBlessIt’s Free Friday and today’s free download, usually $12.95, is Books that Bless by Bramwell Booth. Click here to download.

“You must go and deal with it yourself. Off with your coat and gloves. Doff your finery. This is not to be done by proxy. You have tried a subscription of half-a-guinea a year to support a sort of isolated sweeper. But this has not done much. Come and sweep yourself. Set up a broom and come along! Set up a broom, did we say? What nonsense we are writing! You must be the broom; put yourself in God’s hands, and He will do some sweeping by you.’A dirty job,’ do you say? Granted; and so I suppose is digging silver, and gold, and diamonds. But men reckon that it pays. Anyhow, this soul-scavenging trade pays; will pay a hundredfold in this life and a millionfold in the life everlasting.”

Books That Bless is a compilation of articles written to encourage the reading of books that will prove to be a blessing and to discourage, if not to hinder, the reading of books which would muddle the thinking of believers. Written during the bustle of a busy life, Bramwell Booth regarded his audience primarily as Salvationists, but the volume will prove to bring up points of consideration for any wishing to take the time required to read the books discussed.

Bramwell Booth (1856-1929) was the first child born to William and Catherine Booth, founders of the Salvation Army. Bramwell began serving in the Salvation Army at the young age of fourteen and, in 1881, General William Booth appointed him as as his Chief of Staff of the Salvation Army. Bramwell served in this capacity until his father’s death, and, at such point, became the second General of the Salvation Army. Bramwell helped the Army navigate the tumultuous years of World War I, worked to bring public awareness to the prostitution of young English girls, and served in multiple other capacities. His competency as General was questioned by some within the ranks, and he was asked to resign in 1929 by the High Council of the Salvation Army. He refused, took the issue to court, and lost. Shortly thereafter, he was “Promoted to Glory.”

Free Friday! The Prophet Priest

MurrayProphetIt’s Free Friday and today’s free download, usually $4.95, is The Prophet Priest by Andrew Murray. Click here to download.

Christ, our heavenly Prophet, can descend and come down into our whole life; with every spiritual perplexity we feel, with every prayer we send up, with every difficulty in our daily path, He can be our Teacher. Let Jesus be your Prophet, let Him be your Teacher; wait on Him, “They that wait on the Lord shall never be ashamed.” Above all, if you are longing that He should lead you into the mysteries and blessedness of the Priesthood; into the very holiest of all within the veil, there ever to dwell in God’s light; if you would have Him lead you into the faith, the experience and the joy of the ransomed, and enable you to sing every day, “Now unto Him who loved us, and washed us from our sins in the blood, and made us priests unto God,” then let Jesus, as the Prophet, come in. Bow before Him even now, yield yourself to Him, rejoice in Him, and trust Him.

This volume contains four addresses given by Andrew Murray in 1895 on our Lord Jesus -

  • Our Prophet
  • The Completion of the Priesthood
  • Our Way into the Holiest
  • The Food of the Soul

With the text of Hebrews by his side, Murray explores the role of Jesus as our Prophet and what this means for us practically as a body of believers and as individual followers of Jesus. In his second discourse, Murray again looks at Hebrews to teach us about Jesus’ role as our High Priest. As he says, “What is the object of priesthood? The restoration of fellowship with God. The priest was to take the sinner into God’s presence.” In his third sermon, Murray encourages us to take the Scripture seriously that says, “Let us draw near.” In his warm style, his words seek to strengthen and build our faith up in God’s provision of nearness. Finally, Murray discusses what it means to have the Lord as our meat and drink. Earnestly, Murray ushers us into the invitation to die to sin, the world, our own will and to live in the resurrection power of Jesus.

Andrew Murray pastored churches in Bloemfontein, Worcester, Cape Town and Wellington, all in South Africa. He was an amazingly prolific Christian author. As his popularity grew, Murray’s books found their way into more than twelve foreign languages during his lifetime alone.

In 1889, he was one of the founders of the South African General Mission (SAGM), along with Martha Osborn and Spencer Walton. After Martha Osborn married George Howe, they formed the South East Africa General Mission (SEAGM) in 1891. SAGM and SEAGM merged in 1894. Because its ministry had spread into other African countries, the mission’s name was changed to Africa Evangelical Fellowship (AEF) in 1965. AEF joined with SIM in 1998 and continues to this day.
