Teach No Other Doctrine - by Pastor Cornelius R. Stam


Teach No Other Doctrine

by Pastor Cornelius R. Stam

In strong language the Apostle bids Timothy to “charge some that they teach no other doctrine”; no other doctrine, obviously, than that which he had taught them. In 1 Tim. 6:3-5 he closes his epistle by saying:
If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ… from such withdraw thyself.”
In these passages the Apostle emphasizes the importance of fidelity to that heaven-sent message committed to him by revelation; that message which he says in Tit. 1:2,3 was “promised before the ages began” but made known “in due time… through preaching which is committed unto me…”

Ever since Paul’s day religious leaders have substituted other messages for that committed by the glorified Lord to Paul. The law of Moses, the Sermon on the Mount, the “great commission,” and Pentecost have all been confused with God’s message and program for the dispensation of grace. This is what has bewildered and divided the Church and ripened it for the apostasy.

With all the confused thinking about the Ten Commandments and the Sermon on the Mount fifty years ago it was little wonder that modernism swept so many off their feet with its teachings about Jesus of Nazareth, the Man of Galilee, following his footsteps, social betterment, political reform, etc. Multitudes were so taken up with the social gospel, so eager to help make the world a better place to live in, that they did not even notice or believe that the modernists denied the very fundamentals of the Christian faith.

But the new evangelicalism of our day is still more dangerous. It is big. It is well financed. It is popular. It is subtle. Perhaps its greatest danger lies in the fact that while claiming to be “conservative,” it minimizes the importance of the fundamentals and the danger of apostatizing from them.

Thus the inspired words of the Apostle Paul: “Charge some that they teach no other doctrine,” are more urgently needed in our day than they were in his.

THE SIGNIFICANCE OF DOCTRINE - By Robert E. Hanna


THE SIGNIFICANCE OF DOCTRINE
By Robert E. Hanna


Scripture Reading: II Timothy 2:15, 3:16-4:2

If we would learn the truth, we must of necessity turn to  the one source of truth-the Holy Scriptures. "So then faith  cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God" (Romans  10:17). We will not so learn by randomly quoting verses  plucked from a "promise box." Neither will we gain  knowledge of the truth by sitting under the ministry of clerics  who ramble from point to point in their pulpits, moralizing  and theorizing and spiritualizing. Pure truth can be learned  only from pure doctrine; and the source of pure doctrine for  this age and dispensation is the pen of the Apostle Paul.

Paul wrote in his epistle to the Romans, "God be  thanked ... ye have obeyed from the heart that form of  DOCTRINE which was delivered you .... Now I beseech you,  brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences  contrary to the DOCTRINE which ye have learned; and avoid  them" (Romans 6:17,16:17). To his young son in the faith, he  wrote, "Take heed unto thyself, and unto the DOCTRINE;  continue in them .... Thou hast fully known MY  DOCTRINE. ... continue thou in the things which thou hast  learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast  learned them" II Timothy 3: 16a, II Timothy 2:lOa,14).

We are provided not only with the sound doctrine of  spiritual truth but also with instruction as to its proper  exposition. "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a  workman that needeth notto be ashamed, rightly dividing the  word of truth ... .All Scripture is given by inspiration of God,  and is profitable for DOCTRINE .. .for instruction in  righteousness. "

HEALING IN THE BOOK OF ACfS & HEALING AFfER THE CLOSE OF ACfS - By Robert E. Hanna



Scripture Reading: Acts 5:16, II Timothy 4:20

The Book of Acts covers a period of transition as the  Kingdom Gospel declines and the Gospel of the Grace of God  increases. The longsuffering of God delayed His final setting  aside of His disobedient people Israel, giving them every  opportunity to repent. Although the power to perform  miraculous acts was gradually fading, the gift of healing  remained throughout the entire period. "By the hands of the  apostles were many signs and wonders wrought among the  people .. .insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the  street that at least the shadow of Peter might overshadow  them and they were healed every one" (Acts 5:12-16). Not

only the twelve kingdom apostles, but Paul, the apostle to the  Gentiles, maintained healing power. "There sat a certain man  at Lystra, impotent in his feet ... who had never walked .... Paul  said, Stand upright on thy feet. And he leaped and walked"  (Acts 14:8-10).

Even in the final chapter, Paul is still performing  miraculous deeds. (See Acts 28:3-9.) But as the book closes,  Paul delivers the final word of Israel's setting aside. "The  salvation of God is sent unto the Gentiles, and they will hear  it" (Acts 28:28). From this time forward, Paul's healing power  is over. He tells the ailing Timothy, "Use a little wine for thy  stomach's sake" (I Timothy 5:23); and "Trophirnus have I left  at Miletum-SICK" (II Timothy 4:20).

Buy the Truth and Sell It Not - by Pastor Cornelius R. Stam


Buy the Truth and Sell It Not

by Pastor Cornelius R. Stam

Every true Christian should understand that the truth costs. If you don’t think so, make it your own, value it, defend it, stand for it, and see if it doesn’t cost. Before you are through it may cost you far more than you had thought — hours of ease and pleasure, friends and money. Yes, the truth costs. Salvation is gloriously free but the truth costs — that is, if you want it for yourself. Many who know the truth won’t buy it. They won’t pay what it costs to say: “This is what I believe. This is my conviction.” The truth isn’t worth that much to them.

But in Prov. 23:23 God’s Word urges us: “Buy the truth”! Not, “Buy it if you can get it at a bargain; if the price is not too great.” No, “Buy the truth”! Buy it at any price. It is worth far more than anything you can give in exchange for it.

And when you have bought it: “sell it not.” How many, alas, have bought the truth only to sell out again! For a while they valued and defended some God-given light from His Word, but presently they sold it again for something that seemed more valuable. Perhaps it was peace with others, or position, or popularity or some other temporal gain. They still gave mental assent to it but it formed no part of them. It was no longer a conviction.

Such should read again the Spirit’s counsel: “Buy the truth, and sell it not.” He does not say: “Don’t sell it unless you can get a very good price for it.” He says: “Sell it not.” Sell it not at any price. Buy it, no matter what it costs and when it is yours do not sell it for any price or under any consideration.
It is because the truth is so little valued in this indifferent age, that many of God’s people have become so spiritually powerless. They hold opinions instead of convictions, because they have given the infallible, unchangeable Word of God little place in their lives. God blesses and uses those who “buy the truth and sell it not.”

TIlE HOLY SPIRIT AT PENI'ECOST & TIlE HOLY SPIRIT AND TIlE BODY OF CHRIST - By Robert E. Hanna





  TIlE HOLY SPIRIT AT PENI'ECOST & TIlE HOLY SPIRIT AND TIlE BODY OF CHRIST - By Robert E. Hanna


Scripture Reading: Luke 24:49, I Corinthians 6:19

Following His resurrection from the grave, Jesus said to  His apostles, "I send the promise of my Father upon you: but  tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with  power from on high" (Luke 24:49). And just before He  ascended into heaven, He reiterated, "Ye shall receive power,  after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you" (Acts 1:8). True  to the promise, on the day of Pentecost "They were all filled  with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues,  as the Spirit gave them utterance" (Acts 2:4).

The work of the Holy Spirit was to descend upon the  disciples, fill them [control them] and endue them with power,  enabling them to perform miraculous acts. This all took place Jerusalem, involving Jews, in the program ofIsrael.

The above described activity does not relate to you and  me. We live under the Dispensation of the Grace of God,  under the Gospel of the Grace of God, according to the  mystery which was revealed to and through the Apostle Paul.  The Holy Spirit doesn't empower or control us; He indwells  us. "Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy  Ghost, which is in you, which ye have of God?" (I Corinthians  6:19) ... "[the Holy Spirit] is the earnest [the guarantee] of our  inheritance [eternal life in glory] until the redemption of the  purchased possession [the rapture]" (Ephesians 1:14).
