“Christ rose from the dead; “this was the Lord’s doing,” and it demonstrates that Christ was a faithful witness. In choosing between Christ and the critics, anyone who considers that Christ is alive for evermore, while the critics will soon be gone for ever, will have no doubt upon whom to pin his faith. “Lord, to whom shall we go? you have the words of eternal life” (John 6:68).”

"God has not only “determined the times before appointed” for all nations of men, as Paul told the Athenians, but he has also in many cases specified them numerically. And the historical working out of these appointed times has throughout the ages been a great testimony to the Bible as the Word of God."

"Our’s is the God of Paul, and we share with him the same great hope. In our darkest hour we do not stand alone. “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me.” Like Paul, we know and are sure that God in His mercy will bring us safely to His heavenly kingdom. In that day we shall meet Paul; perhaps we shall see him stand up and stretch forth his hand as seems to have been his manner when speaking (Acts 26:1), and hear him address gentiles and kings concerning the King of Kings whom he served and before whom all the world will bow."

"The spiritual creation is God’s no less than the physical, but it is a creation wrought through men’s willing self-surrender. As of old, the operative power is the Word, but the stuff in which the Word works is no longer unorganized dust but the minds of living men."

"If, as we fully believe, we are now living in the last days of Gentile ascendancy, the call becomes more insistent. We would not say more important, for it would be wrong to suppose that the principles of truth were of any less account in days that were less stirring. There can be no change in that matter, for God always had the first claim and nothing could enhance the importance of His demands. In these latter days, however, the cries of the world have become so loud that if we are properly exercised by the knowledge that has been divinely granted to us, we may let these worldly calls increase our spiritual perceptions, so that the demands of truth seem to be proportionally intensified. The call to be saints, the call to God’s kingdom and glory, the call to righteousness, and the call to be alert and watchful, should transform the evil events of this dark age into a midnight cry loud enough to awaken even those who are most sleepy."

"... let us strive to lay a good foundation to our faith in the Truth, a foundation that is evenly matched to stand the weariness of the spirit that sometimes affects us; let us strive to overcome it as Jesus did, for it is only a passing phase which will be soon ended when our Lord returns. We remember those words of Isaiah: “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; they shall walk, and not faint” (Isaiah 40:31). How much longer before these things become a reality, we do not know, but every day, every hour brings us closer to our Lord’s return."

"The Bible is unique in its chronology, which is a strong testimony to the fact that it is “the Word of God.” So far as we are aware, no other so-called “sacred book” has any chronology at all. That is to say, no such book propounds a world-purpose by its divinity, or divinities, and appoints a time-programme for its fulfilment or accomplishment."

"God has worked our redemption and wishes us to receive it with intense relief and joy, and to deal with our brethren and sisters as He has dealt with us. He wants us to live in His pure, fresh air, honest, unsuspicious, clear-thinking, esteeming above all things His love and the life of communion with Him and the practice of the presence of His Son. He wants us to worship Him, overcoming in our services themselves all those features that so easily distract our gaze from Him towards each other and ourselves. He wants us, truly, to humble ourselves before Him, but not with that abasement which bends its head so far over as a bulrush that it finishes by seeing only its own prostration. He wants us to say, and mean it, that all His service is our delight, earning nothing from Him, conferring nothing upon Him, but rendering to Him the joyous response that is befitting from those for whom the joy of Tabernacles is in store and who may know it in measure already according as they trust in Him."

"... for it is of His own will that God begat us, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures. That is our privilege in Christ. To co-operate with Him in the fulfilment of that purpose in ourselves should be our greatest joy."

"Vivid is Zechariah’s prophecy in which he speaks of the happenings of one particular day: Zechariah 14:1. “Behold, the day of the Lord cometh ... And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof ... and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south” (Zechariah 14:1,4). “And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea (eastern, or Dead Sea) and half of them toward the hinder sea (Mediterranean) ... All the land shall be turned as a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem: and it shall be lifted up” (Zechariah 14:8,10)."

"When at last the longed-for Lord shall come in the Father’s glory bringing salvation, bearing still the marks of greatest love in hands and feet, what joy, what ecstasy will be bestowed on those who in the experience of daily living have been crucified together with him; who have patiently endured the cross for his abiding love; who, through the anguish of willing sacrifice, have pleaded, "Lord, remember me when you come into your kingdom." (Luke 23:42)"

"The God of the Old Testament is a God active in history and His actions constitute the ground of His claim for worship and obedience. The New Testament pattern of apostolic preaching is a relation of what God has done in and for Jesus Christ and the consequent demand for repentance and faith."

"The Lord has gone away into a far country, leaving us to recognise our need to prepare for his coming again. For all that is written of him in the law and the prophets and the psalms will certainly be fulfilled (Matthew 5:17; Luke 24:44). How thrilling is the prospect of a world free from man’s selfish works!"

"We are not privileged to experience the transfiguration as did Peter, James and John. But if we are prepared to accompany our Lord up the mountainside, it will be good to be there, for we shall experience his presence. There we may learn from him self-sacrifice, the Divine path to glory. And when we have to descend from the spiritual heights we shall be prepared to meet mundane pressures. His influence will remain with us as an inspiration."

"Jesus is constantly mingling the good life he sets as our pattern with stupendous claims of a theological order: we cannot separate them out. “Which of you convinceth me of sin?” “The words that I speak are not mine, but his that sent me.” “I do always those things which please my Father.” “I am the Way, the Truth, the Life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me.” One cannot abstract the goodness and reject the claims, for if these were false, then the goodness was seriously impaired."

"... who is or can be perfect as the Father in heaven is perfect? How far we all fall below the standard of completeness and consistency! We are human, and human nature fails and must fail, and can only seek forgiveness and atonement in the High Priest. This pattern of Divine holiness and love is none the less the ideal set before us. Human nature may indeed strive and fall and strive again, but unless we do strive with the ideal in Christ Jesus constantly before our eyes, his Passover sacrifice has no meaning for us. Let us then keep the feast, not with the old leaven, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth."
