    Three things Dr. Henry Ironside tells us about Salvation. He has chosen you to Salvation through Sanctification. This means we were aroused to realize our lost condition and a need of a Savior by the direct work of The Holy Spirit; And so we were led to trust The Lord Jesus Christ. Sanctification of the Spirit is the initial work of God in our Soul. When we believe the Gospel we have assurance of Salvation. God Bless Teachers of God’s Holy Word.

    We visited a Holiness church a few times back in September and October of this year and I never saw such a messed up place in my life. It seemed okay the first couple of times, but we decided not to go back because some of the men were not too friendly. The way those places are structured is not too far from a Pentecostal church in my opinion. And Pentecostal teaching is very unbiblical in its nature. I’m glad God warned us about that place before things went too far.

    The following straight from a born-again Christian’s (Ironside’s) heart:

    But the thought came, “What shall I pray for?” Clearly and distinctly came back the answer, “For what God has been offering me for years. Why not then receive it and thank Him?”

    That’s the Gospel; the only one there is, the only one God has provided. And as Lighthouse has rightly pointed out:

    “For the last nearly five years, Lighthouse Trails has addressed the detrimental and unbiblical nature of Calvinism. However, the other end of the spectrum is just as dangerous and wrong; and this is what Ironside discusses in this booklet.”

    Calvinism/Reformed . . . does not have a gospel . . . I’ll still pray for them to understand the simple yet profound Gospel.

    Thank you. The insights are without number. Looking to self not God. Therefore some of these souls argue that Romans 7 is speaking of Paul before being saved.
    I made many mistakes in my walk but fortunately I never took that self aggrandizing path.
    That explains the burnout the dropout and the foolishness of chasing the next lover quiver.
    Never take your eyes off Jesus. All the way our Savior leads us, every day all the way to heavens gates.

    Interesting read as Harry Ironside shares that he was a student of the Bible from an early age. The verses below came to mind as he certainly would have studied them. Illustrates how we miss so much when the words ‘I’ and ‘ME’ get in the way. But God, rich in mercy and grace.

    9Also He spoke this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others: 10“Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 11The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, ‘God, I thank You that I am not like other men—extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this tax collector. 12I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I possess.’ 13And the tax collector, standing afar off, would not so much as raise his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me a sinner!’ 14I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”
    Luke 18: 9-14

    40But the other, answering, rebuked him, saying, “Do you not even fear God, seeing you are under the same condemnation? 41And we indeed justly, for we receive the due reward of our deeds; but this Man has done nothing wrong.” 42Then he said [k]to Jesus, “Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom.” 43And Jesus said to him, “Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise.”
    Luke 23:40-43
