In ‘A Night in the Sea’ (which is part of his excellent book ‘ Night scenes of Scripture’) , beginning with the night-time crossing of the Red Sea in Exodus 14, WTP Wolston discusses ‘The Salvation of the Lord’. In his own very clear and down-to earth way he brings out the beauty of Salvation; "Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord”. As he says “Salvation is a very large word. It comprehends forgiveness, and deliverance, and peace, and the knowledge that I am justified…Every believer in Christ is entitled to know what is presented here in type, and figure, and he can then sing sweetly, simply, and happily, "He is become my salvation." This is the first time Salvation is mentioned in Scripture, and the author explains how wonderfully it is all coupled with a person, the person of the Saviour. ‘He who possesses Christ has God's salvation.’ The song of the redeemed, the protection of the Lord (“ If you are under the shelter of the blood, you belong to God, He is your Saviour, and He Himself stands between His people, and the pursuing enemy.”) and many other wonderful Gospel truths are illustrated clearly by this gifted expositor. A word about the author: WALTER THOMAS PRIDEAUX WOLSTON (1840-1917) was born in, Devon, England. He says himself that before he was converted he was a most thorough going young worldling, deeply immersed in its pleasures and its sin, but in London in 1860, the Lord met and saved him. He began as a lawyer and later he established himself as a physician in Edinburgh .He dearly loved the Gospel, and it mattered not what subject he discoursed upon to Christians, he never finished without preaching God's salvation. He had a wonderful influence over young men, and frequently lectured to students in Edinburgh on spiritual subjects. He was the Editor of the magazine entitled ´God´s Glad Tidings´,afterwards altered to ´The Gospel Messenger´,for forty-five years, and many clearly written Gospel booklets have come from his pen. He also wrote books on spiritual subjects, which have been helpful to many, including: "Young Men of Scripture", "Night Scenes of Scripture", "Behold the Bridegroom", "Seekers for Light" and "The Church". So that by means of the printed page Dr. Wolston has been, through the grace of God, a means of blessing to thousands of both saints and sinners.Show more
Christian Poetry VOLUME 1 A selection of famous and not so famous poems and lyrics on spiritual themes. This Collection of 62 Poems by various authors including William Cowper, Thomas Kelly, Willie Mullan, Robert Murray McCheyne, Charlotte Elliott, George Herbert, Charitie Lees De Chenez and many others, has been brought together in order that these spiritual truths and impressions, presented in poetical form, will comfort and edify God's people as they wrestle daily with the world, the flesh, and the devil. To know that others have felt what we have felt, 'Through all the changing scenes of life , In trouble and in joy' to hear the feelings in our hearts echoed back to us, to be reminded of our Lord's love, will comfort the soul and bring encouragement. Some of the poems and lyrics included will be familiar as they have been set to music and become famous hymns - as John Newton puts it 'these are not 'odes', but are truths put plainly and simply for ordinary people to understand'. Some others are perhaps more deep and thought- provoking. Perhaps listening to them being read, instead of being sung will allow you to appreciate the sentiments in a different way. This audio edition is produced with the prayerful desire that the Blessed Spirit of God may be pleased to use it for Christ's Glory and for the comfort, encouragement and edification of God's people. These poems are read by Alex Wyndham, Paul Ansdell, Anita Wright and Stuart Packer. Copyright Words by the Wayside, 2015.

In Jonathan and his Times', W.W. Fereday examines the life and times of Jonathan, son of King Saul. Although a man of faith, who loved David as his own soul and performed many daring exploits in the name of Jehovah, he was a man of mixed principles, a double-minded man who never lived up to his spiritual potential. Jonathan's weakness is clearly shown: he was not prepared to follow David in his rejection. Fereday explains, "The Spirit records the weaknesses and shortcomings of those who have trodden the path of faith before us, for our present instruction and blessing." We are here exhorted to review our Christian path. "What have we really surrendered for the One we profess to love? What cherished idols have we abandoned for Him? To what extent have we shared His rejection? Jonathan parted with David in the time of crisis; do we find it difficult to give the Lord Jesus Christ the place of absolute supremacy in our hearts and lives?" A word about the author: William Woldridge Fereday (1863 - 1959) was born in England. He was saved at the age of 16 and almost immediately started to preach and he spent the whole of his life in the study and exposition of the Scriptures, travelled extensively and spent a considerable time in Scotland and the continent of Europe. His written ministry is well known for being brief and succinct as well as precise and accurate and always scripturally sound and Christ-centred. He has written many articles and booklets which include a very profitable series of Scripture Character studies. This book is part of the Brethren Writers Library series. These books go forth with the purpose of introducing the listener to the writings of men who were gifted of God as teachers for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ'.

Mephibosheth, or, The Kindness of God. In this beautiful exposition of the unmerited kindness of King David toward the poor lame orphan Mephibosheth, we see a picture of the kindness of God, through Jesus Christ. The condition of fallen man, the wondrous grace of God in His kindness to poor lost sinners and the privileges of conferred sonship - and thou shalt eat bread at my table continually - are clearly brought out by this gifted expositor. A word about the author: Charles Stanley (1821-1890), of Rotherham, England, was left an orphan at the age of four. Converted when fourteen, that year he preached his first message. At age twenty-three, with meager capital, he had begun his own hardware business in Sheffield. Then the businessman met Captain Wellesly, (the nephew of "the Iron Duke" of Wellington). Under his gracious teaching, the Bible became a new book to him. It was his daily study, and "he grew in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ." His favorite Old Testament story was of Mephibosheth, the orphan who was tragically crippled. Speaking of his message on Mephibosheth, he remarked: "I believe the Lord rarely ever led me to preach from Mephibosheth without souls being converted.

As JB Stoney explores the experiences of Jonah and others in ‘Out of Death into Life’, he shows us that “WILL is the real cause of the restlessness, and of the absence of full joy in souls. …. the only true place of happiness for a believer is to be without a will of his own….” and how the enjoyment of our salvation depends on us appropriating the death of Christ. What did Eve, Jonah, the Rich Young Ruler and many, many others in scripture have in common? They had a will of their own that was against God; God wanted them to go to the left and they wanted to go to the right. Even the Apostle Paul, who had thought himself so incomparably good, had found that he had a will that was against God, (so that he calls himself afterwards the chief of sinners). But after he appropriated the death of Christ “He has been turned round, as it were; he has learned that the old Saul has gone in the cross…. It is not only that his sins are gone, but he himself is a gone man, gone in the death of Christ. He has gone to his own funeral in that sense, and is glad to be free of himself.” A word about the author: James Butler Stoney (1814 – 1897) was born in Co. Tipperary, Ireland and entered Trinity College, Dublin, at the young age of fifteen. In 1831 men were dying of cholera all around him in Dublin. He was suddenly taken ill and, sure he was going to die and realizing he was a sinner on the very brink of a lost eternity, he called upon the Lord Jesus Christ alone for Salvation and was gloriously saved. He left off studying for law and joined the Divinity Class at Trinity College, Dublin, hoping to study for four years and then be ordained. His family were very angry, as they thought his fine talents and opportunities were being thrown away. But during those four years he was studying the Scrip¬tures with all the earnestness of a soul that had learned that unseen things are for eternity, and the seen things of this life are passing away. He never was ordained, and became part of an early ‘Brethren’ Assembly, ‘gathered to the Lord’s Name’. He has written a book called "Discipline in the School of God," dealing with the Old Testament characters, and contributed to several periodicals including ‘A voice to the Faithful’. A fervent, impressive speaker, he spoke somewhere every day and travelled much around Great Britain and Ireland, teaching and preaching."Show more
OUTLINES OF TRUTH (Being Bible Talks on Important Subjects Connected with the Foundations of Christianity) explains many foundational scriptural truths in an easy to understand way, and includes subjects such as : Faith & Works, Peace & Deliverance, Safety & Sanctification, Law & Grace, Sin & Sins, The New Nature & the Old, Blood& Water, Grace & Discipleship, Election & Free Grace, Israel & the Church, Worship & Service, The Rapture & the Appearing. This valuable book supplies sound Biblical teaching for todays Church among whom is much misunderstanding and lack of scriptural knowledge. A word about the Author: Frank Binford Hole (1874-1964) was a man of God. The conspicuous feature of his life was that he lived and laboured in the Christian Faith, and was constrained to do so by personal experience of the love of Christ. At an early age he became a full-time worker in the service of Christ in UK Assemblies. His gifts from God manifested themselves in three different ways: firstly as evangelist; secondly as teacher; and lastly as publisher. He wrote several valuable books, Outlines of Truth, "The Great Salvation" and another one equally valuable "Foundations of the Faith". He also edited and contributed many articles to a small periodical called "Edificatio" and for many years"Scripture Trut".Show more
Preaching Christ - What is it? Christianity is not a set of abstractions - a number of dogmas - a system of doctrines. It is pre-eminently a religion of living facts, of divine realities - a religion which finds its centre in a divine Person, the Man Christ Jesus. He is the foundation of all Christian doctrine. From His divine and glorious Person all truth radiates. He is the living fountain from which all the streams issue forth in fullness, power and blessing. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. In this paper CHM explores Christ as a Test, as a Victim and as a Model, and asks the solemn question which still remains to be answered - answered by the world - answered by the individual sinner - What have you done with the Son of God? A word about the author: C. H. Mackintosh, (1820 -1896) was born in County Wicklow, Ireland, and is generally known as C.H.M., which is all that appeared on the title pages of his major writings. He was one of the major evangelists and Brethren authors of the 19th century. CHM was converted when he was 18, he briefly farmed and then ran a school before fully committing himself in 1854 to serving the Lord whom he so fervently loved. The rest of his life he spent very actively preaching the gospel to the unsaved and presenting sound ministry both in writing and preaching, travelling widely in the British Isles and living in a number of towns in Ireland and England. He was very active in the Ulster Revival of 1859. His writings are easily understood and they were particularly influential among North American evangelicals. He also edited for a number of years a magazine called Things New & Old, which had a worldwide distribution and reputation. This book is part of the Brethren Writers Library series. These books go forth with the purpose of introducing the listener to the writings of men who were gifted of God as teachers for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.

Three Selected Short Writings by CA Coates: Peace with God There are four things which hinder souls from having Peace: Coates uses four Old Testament pictures to show how every question in connection with these four things has been met and settled for the believer, for example, "Many believers in Jesus do not know that their sins are put away actually carried out of God's sight, and removed from before Him by being borne by Jesus" Three scenes of Judgement In this section The Sacrifice of Isaac', The casting out of Ishmael' and The destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah' are examined. As Coates says, May the truths typified by these Three Scenes of Judgment have such a place in our souls that each one of us may have unclouded Peace and Joy, and be found in distinct Testimony for the One who is rejected by the world" What meanest Thou? A short gospel message: "I would have you to consider carefully that indifference to the gospel is a sin of no ordinary kind ; it is pure and simple wickedness .It is at an infinite cost that God has secured for Himself in righteousness the title of Saviour God. The Son has been given ; Jesus has died ; and the whole universe can see at the cross of Christ that God is neither indifferent to sin, nor to the need of His poor creature who has fallen under its power Let me say, then, very briefly, that through a crucified, risen, and glorified Saviour-the Son of God, Jesus Christ our Lord -God is proclaiming the forgiveness of sins, and eternal salvation." A word about the author: Charles Andrew Coates (1862 -1945) was born in Bradford, England and died in Teignmouth, Devon. Saved when a young man, he never enjoyed robust health and the many occasions when he was laid aside through illness were put to good use in prayerful meditation and the study of Holy Scripture. Because of his ill health Coates could not go about teaching and preaching, but he could not be idle for his Lord, so instead he produced many tracts and books, and he also used his poetical ability to compose a number of poems and hymns. This book is part of the Brethren Writers Library series. These books go forth with the purpose of introducing the listener to the writings of men who were gifted of God as teachers for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ'.

JND was a prodigious writer who had a major influence on evangelical thinking in the 19th Century. Here are just a few of his articles. Man Fallen and The Seed of the Woman, Genesis Chapter 3: "Satan is active, and his power consists in producing distrust, and this where there is happiness and intimate relation with God - to darken, and, if possible, destroy all in the heart. Eve listened to and believed Satan, in place of listening to God and believing Him; and this is just what man is ever doing, but God pronounces judgment on the enemy, and in the midst of it the revelation is made of the Saviour, for the suffering second Man, the woman's Seed, is Son of God, the true God, and eternal life, who became man, to die for sinners and destroy the works of the devil." God's House and The Way, Psalm 84: "Would not such a thought as being in God's court, as men dwelling in God's own house, greatly delight and surprise us, if heard for the first time and its meaning understood? It is this new thing - that men should dwell in God's own house; not be there merely as a visitor, but a dweller. Is the hope of the Lord's coming your daily delight? Does it influence you in the ten thousand details of your every-day life? Or are you so walking hand in hand with The World that the very thought of His Coming fills you with shame?" Death with Christ , Romans Chapter 6: "The application of 'Christ dead and risen' to the believer's walk, The motive to, yea ground of, a Christian life is that we died with Christ; and we have life through a dead Christ, with whom we died. "Walk in newness of life." "Have your fruit unto holiness." But the great doctrine of grace is - saved by a mediator." A word about the author: John Nelson DARBY (1800 -1882) came from an Anglo-Irish landowning family seated at Leap Castle, King's County, Ireland. His middle name was given in recognition of his godfather and family friend, Lord Nelson. Born at Westminster, he was educated at Westminster School, then at Trinity College, Dublin. He was studying for Law when he was gloriously saved and felt that being a lawyer was inconsistent with his religious belief, so he studied divinity instead. Around 1830 he joined an interdenominational meeting of believers (including Anthony Norris Groves, Edward Cronin, J. G. Bellett) who met to "break bread" together in Dublin as a symbol of their unity in Christ. By 1832, this group had grown and began to identify themselves as a distinct Christian assembly. As they travelled and began new assemblies in Ireland and England, they formed the movement now commonly calledBrethren'. He used his classical skills to translate the Bible from Hebrew and Greek texts into several languages. In English he wrote a Synopsis of the Bible and many other scholarly religious articles. He wrote hymns and poems, the most famous being, "Man of Sorrows".Show more
The Christian Life is a life commenced in faith, continued in patience, and consummated by perseverance. It is a Divine life into which only those born again through the word of truth enter. It is an eternal life, for "I give unto My sheep eternal life and they shall never perish," says the Good Shepherd. It is possessed by every believer in the Lord Jesus Christ simply because he or she is a believer in Him. It is not at all an attainment, but the gift of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. It is not a renovation of human nature but a new life; not a mere reformation but a regeneration by God the Holy Spirit. Strictly stated the real Christian life is the life of Christ lived in the Christian. Here then, briefly, we review the open secret of the devotional Christian life Have I been forgiven much? Do I love much? Do I practically own Him as Lord of my life? Do I do the things which He says? These are the questions which those who wish to know the joy of the Christian life must face for themselves. But Praise the Lord, we need not be alarmed, for we can count on Him to do exceeding abundantly above all we can ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us. A word about the author: William George Turner was born in 1875 and called home aged 80 on 31st August 1955. He is buried at St. Nicholas at Wade, Thanet, Kent. As well as The Christian Life he also wrote many other articles and is most well known for his book Unknown and Well Known: A Biography of John Nelson Darby. This book is part of the Brethren Writers Library series. These books go forth with the purpose of introducing the listener to the writings of men who were gifted of God as teachers for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.
