  • The Way to Pentecost

In our day, much as in Chadwick's, Pentecost is mostly misunderstood by the Church at large and is therefore either feared or turned into a circus. In both cases the Spirit of God is either lacking or completely grieved. This is evident in the absence of power; power to embrace and live a holy life in spite of the deprivations of the professing church and the pollutions of the world around us.

What is prayer? How do we apprehend communion with God? In The Path of Prayer Chadwick leads us on an excursion into the depths of prayer. We are admonished not to simply learn to say our prayers, but to pray our prayers. Expressing the heart and character of God as revealed in Scripture, Chadwick teaches us the overwhelming necessity of a proper attitude of heart when approaching the Throne of Grace. By Biblical example and precept prayer is defined and explained.

Jesus gave the commission to cast out demons to the entire Church in Mark 16:17. When God calls us into ministry, He equips us. The gifts of the Holy Spirit, as presented in 1 Corinthians 12, represent God's empowerment to believers to accomplish this task. We must rely on the Holy Spirit for the ministry of deliverance and nothing else, not our own understanding, or the voice of demons, but only the voice of the Holy Spirit to guide us in deliverance and spiritual warfare.

Scripture is filled with examples of men and women whom God used late in life, often with great impact—Noah, Abraham, Moses, Elizabeth, and Anna, to name a few. They were ordinary men and women who discovered that the latter years of life can be some of the most rewarding and fulfilling. “For them, growing older wasn’t something to be denied or dreaded;” says Billy Graham, “it was to be embraced as part of God’s plan for their lives.” Billy Graham’s life and ministry have been dedicated to the here and now but always with a happy-ever-after in view.

Sproul's survey of the ongoing impact of history's most influential philosophies urges listeners to take prevailing cultural mind-sets seriously...because ideas do have consequences. The greatest thinkers of all time are impacting us still. From public-policy decisions and current laws to world events, theology, the arts, education, and even conversations between friends, history's most influential philosophies have wrought massive consequences on nearly everything we see, think, and do.

I enjoyed this well narrated, theologically and biblically well grounded Martin Luther devotional.
It is concise and yet contains very deep and pragmatic, applicable truths very relevant to our days.Martin Luther, no doubt is a giant Father of the evangelical Faith
I have read other devotionals for about four decades yet as soon as I stumbled upon this through research works, I fell in love with it. Our daily romance has been very fruitful. I recommend it to you too.

Billy Graham has touched millions of lives by sharing the truth of the gospel. Now, this classic devotional will help listeners stay close to the Lord throughout the day. Each day, listeners can encourage their heart and mind with a scripture and short devotion from one of America's favorite pastors. It's a beautiful means for abiding more in the One who is our true hope for each day.

The grace upon Billy Graham in sharing the Gospel,of Salvation of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Hope, the Joy and Eternal Life that the Faith in Christ Jesus, is legendary. This devotional is a daily dose of all these send more.
As a theology scholar, and Holy Ghost baptized believer forty years today, I have read this devotional daily for one year, now. It is most beneficial.
I recommend it to all Christians both theologians, simple believers and most especially non- believers. The language is simple but graphic, full of scriptural references and speaks to real life usdues,
