This is an audio sermon by Michael Pickett titled “Charge The Rich” The scripture text that brother Michael is preaching from is 1st Timothy 6:17-19 and the audio is 54 minutes long.

“My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.” (John 5:17) In giving you my thoughts on this text, I shall take but little notice about creating the world, upholding the world, governing the world, disposing of all things in the world, destroying and renewing the world, or judging the world; for all these things are subservient to one grand end; all things are for the elect’s sake. Christ created all things: he upholds… Read More

“…Come hither, and I will show you the Bride, the Lamb’s Wife.” (Revelation 21:9) We have presented the origin, characteristics, nature, and spirituality of the Bride, the Lamb’s wife. With each member of His body, a “spirit of adoption,” is given, and they each wait in hope for the resurrection of the dead, wherein they will fully realize the adoption, the redemption of their body. At some point in historical time, that… Read More

Preached at North Street Chapel, Stamford, on January 5, 1862, by J. C. Philpot. “Come, my beloved, let us go forth into the field; let us lodge in the villages. Let us get up early to the vineyards; let us see if the vine flourish, whether the tender grape appear, and the pomegranates bud forth: there will I give thee my loves.” (Song of Solomon 7:11-12) I do not often preach from… Read More

We have been called on for an expression of our views on the subject of washing the saints’ feet, but we confess our inability to do justice to the subject, especially when we find a discrepance in the views of those whom we have a right to esteem much better than ourself. Our brethren in the southern and south-western States, so far as we are informed, generally practice literally the service of… Read More

“And He said unto them, go ye into all the world, and preach the Gospel to every creature.” (Mark 16:15) These words were directed from Jesus to the eleven apostles. Notice that this commission or command was given after Jesus had risen from the grave. (Judas had already hanged himself.) We have a prayer in our heart that God will bless us to rightly divide the word of truth. As the Lord… Read More

“Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness; for they shall be filled.” (Matthew 5:6) The righteousness intended here is not creature-righteousness. “All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field, which withereth and fadeth away when the Spirit of the Lord bloweth upon it.” (Isaiah 40:6-7) But the righteousness the dear Lord has in view in this text, is that blessed righteousness… Read More

This is an audio sermon by Michael Pickett titled: “Teaching Profit” The scripture text that brother Michael is preaching from is Isaiah 48:17 and the audio is 55 minutes long.

“Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.” (I Peter 2:5) “Ye also, as lively stones” — We think of this Scripture, “God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.” (Matthew 22:32) His people are spoken of as “lively stones” after they have been quickened and made alive by the Spirit… Read More

Since the apostles of the Lamb have finished their course with us in the flesh, no history of the church of God should be allowed to lure us from the doctrine which they taught, the judgments they recorded, the ordinances they have enjoined; nothing is to be added nor aught diminished from the perfect standard of faith and order they established, which is confirmed by all the valid authority of earth and… Read More

“And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes to heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful (propitious) to me a sinner.” (Luke 18:13) The word propitiation means to appease divine wrath, and render satisfaction. To be propitious, or to be merciful. Our dear Lord, two thousand years ago, actually did appease the frowning Justice of God, and render satisfaction for His elect…. Read More

“But God hath called us to peace.” (I Corinthians 7:15) “And the way of peace have they not known.” (Romans 3:17) God has said of someone — I do not say He said it to me — that He “hath called us to peace.” There IS someone He has called to peace, and I do not say it was you. But, it is certain that God has called someone to peace. He… Read More

“Draw me, we will run after thee” (Song of Solomon 1:4) “Come to Jesus. Come just as you are! Jesus is waiting! You must, indeed, you can come this very night,” purred the “evangelist.” Jesus therefore answered and said: “No man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of My Father “ (John 6:65). “Jesus said that “he that cometh to me,” replied the evangelist, “I will in no… Read More

This, is a most precious doctrine! How great is the need for a feeling sinner to be at peace with God? And to ever be at peace with God, in some manner, he must be reconciled to Him. By nature he is born a rebel. In fact, his “natural mind,” or “carnal mind is enmity against God, it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. So then… Read More

“And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes to heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful (propitious) to me a sinner.” (Luke 18:13) The word propitiation means to appease divine wrath, and render satisfaction. To be propitious, or to be merciful. Our dear Lord, two thousand years ago, actually did appease the frowning Justice of God, and render satisfaction for His elect…. Read More

By definition, sanctification is the setting of someone or something apart from others for an exclusive and holy use. In the old temple worship, almost all things were sanctified by the sprinkling of blood. The Eternal Godhead is involved in the sanctification of sensible sinners. The Father sanctified: “Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ,… Read More

Usually most people know what is meant by a ransom when reading about a kidnapping in a daily newspaper. However, when they hear the word in the context of the Christian faith, they are as blind as if they never heard the word at all! It means what it means in both settings! The ransom price is paid, and the captive goes free! That is the Gospel! Again, that price was paid… Read More

This aspect of the Gospel is the most familiar of all those listed, and yet strangely, so little truly believed by most people. “For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the Scripture.” (I Corinthians 15:3) Some people recognize what that passage says, and yet do not want to receive the force of it. So they modify it… Read More

It is both reasonable and Biblical that anyone going to heaven must be without sin. “The soul that sinneth it shall die.” (Ezekiel 18:4) Since sin is the “transgression of the law” and the “wages of sin is death” (1 John 3:4 and Romans 6:23) and “all have sinned and come short of the glory of God,” a poor feeling sinner cannot help but think: “Who, Lord, then can be saved?” And… Read More

“Draw me, we will run after thee” (Song of Solomon 1:4) “Come to Jesus. Come just as you are! Jesus is waiting! You must, indeed, you can come this very night,” purred the “evangelist.” Jesus therefore answered and said: “No man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of My Father “ (John 6:65). “Jesus said that “he that cometh to me,” replied the evangelist, “I will in no… Read More

As with Jeremiah, the same can be said of every sensible sinner: “The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: and with longing kindness have I DRAWN thee.” (Jeremiah 31:3) It is from this everlasting love that God moved to save such wretched sinners. As he said of Ephraim, His work is the moving cause of salvation: “I have surely heard Ephraim… Read More

When we consider that, as David confessed, men are “shapened in iniquity; and in sin” did their “mother conceive” them (Psalm 51:5,) and that “the wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies” (Psalm 58:3,) it becomes certain that man is in no way able to save, or help to save, himself. He has always been depraved. Before the flood, God saw that… Read More

We use the term begetting, for the implantation of natural life in Adam’s offspring, and quickening for the implantation of spiritual life of Christ in an elect by the Holy Spirit. The term birth is limited to one being delivered from his mother’s womb, and the term new birth for conversion or deliverance to the light of the Gospel. As you will see, these terms cover a period of time in natural… Read More

“And, behold, there talked with Him two men, which were Moses and Elias: who appeared in glory, and spake of His decease which He should accomplish at Jerusalem.” (Luke 9:30-31) Later, John would reference back to this most glorious event, saying, “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” –… Read More

We do not know of any reliable history of the Baptists from the apostles’ days down to the present. Of all the books that have been published on ecclesiastical history, that have come under our observation, we have seen none that traces our history from the organization of the primitive Baptist Church on the day of Pentecost to the present time, as all that we have read, after the Church a few… Read More

NEW HOME CHURCH Clarke County Mississippi beside Highway 18, fourteen miles east of Quitman, Mississippi New Home Church is an Old School Predestinarian Primitive Baptist Church (See Definitions). The Church was formed November 27th, 1909 with the following members holding letters which were examined and found orderly and orthodox: H. I. E. Carroll, C. L. Satcher, William Williams, Nancy Carroll, and V. A. Avera. Preaching by Elders L. F. Easley and W…. Read More

“. . . the Baptized Churches Of Christ” After having published two or three articles on various aspects of the baptized churches of Christ, known as Old School Baptists of the predestinarian faith and primitive order, we design to present an in-depth discussion of this faith and send it forth in book form. Our intent is to define our unique terms, present the historical development of church issues that produced these unique… Read More

Baptized – As used in the New Testament, it is the full immersion, or dipping, of the body of a professed believer under water as a figure of his death, burial and resurrection in Christ Jesus. Almost all Eastern Orthodox Catholics today baptize by immersion, but they also baptize infants in lieu of the Jewish rite of circumcision. Hence, they are paedobaptists. Paedobaptists – Any denomination of the Catholic/Protestant “Church” that either… Read More

At the outset, we wish to clarify our historical record below by pointing out that we are not presenting a “church succession” of modern churches from earlier churches in a lineal history. Such cannot be done, and those who attempt it are intellectually dishonest, or have too much faith in such that are. Protestants can trace their origins from Constantine’s religious enterprise at Rome, which in turn can “claim” that the church… Read More

The churches of the New Testament did not have “names.” There is no mention of a subdivision of the church into “denominations” in the New Testament. The church was a numerator – that is, it was one body, taken in the sense of the whole community of believers. Today, there truthfully is no such thing as a “denomination” of the true church. However, there are many denominations of the Roman Catholic Church…. Read More

Another very significant event in the history of our churches was the Great Awakening (1720-1760). A gradual awareness that many souls scattered throughout the American frontier were experiencing a sense of their lost and horrid sinfulness, turning to Christ for their only hope of salvation, and constituting congregations desiring the administration of baptism, spread from village to village, town to town, city to city, until the whole American frontier was seemingly a… Read More

The introduction of Fullerism into the American churches was from the first strenuously opposed. Beginning in 1788, the Minutes of the Philadelphia Association records an onslaught of one heresy after another. It may not have anything to do with this, but in each year that heresies were dealt with, the Association also recorded a “Plague,” referred to in history as the “Hessian Fly.” In 1788, the following query was submitted: “Whether a… Read More

“Let all things be done decently and in order.” (I Corinthians 14:40) The first thing we wish to note under this heading is that we refer to that group of the “baptized Churches of Christ” of the Predestinarian faith and Old School orders that are independent of the corresponding associations. They have a freedom to speak their minds as the Spirit gives them utterance, a freedom to go anywhere the Spirit leads… Read More

An ordinance is a divine arrangement or institution (Greek: diatage). This writer is one of a very few people that believes one should follow what the Holy Spirit has instituted in His Church. That means that he believes there are four ordinances, rather than just two as held to by modern Baptists. They agree that baptism and the Lord’s Supper are ordinances. Some of them say that for it to be an… Read More

The phrase “decency and in order” is rather vague. There is no specificity given to explain just how to do that. While Paul was with the Churches, they could ask him. But after the apostles were gone, they were so to speak as a “man,” on their own. Paul wrote to one Church on this topic saying, “Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not in my presence only, but now… Read More

The government, or constitution, of the baptized Churches of Christ: We might insert here a biblical principle. The government of the Church is “congregational.” That is, the “Church” determines what will or will not be done, and this is done by “unanimous consent,” and must have the Scriptures for the basis of their deliberation. These Churches do not go by “majority rule,” or Robert’s Parliamentary Rules of Order, as worldly societies do…. Read More

Observing the rapidity in which the greater portion fell from the doctrines of grace and New Testament order, one must ask: “How did this come to pass so quickly?” Were they not established in the faith of God’s elect? Did they not actually believe what they had so recently written in the Articles of their Faith for all men to read and understand? Did they understand the meaning of their own hand-written… Read More

The London Confession of Faith of 1644 ANNOTATION: We invite the reader to give attention to these dates: John Spilsbery established the first Church and congregation of “baptized Churches of Christ” holding to particular redemption in London in the year 1633. Eleven years later there were seven of these Churches, and in that year, 1644, they felt it advisable to write a Confession of their faith. Why? For all manner of slander… Read More

ANNOTATION: Reuben Ross preached the first Arminian, or Freewill sermon among Baptists near Port Royal, Tennessee in 1817. The Baptist Board of Foreign Missions had been set up on 1813-1815. During the same time, his brother, Martin Ross, introduced the call for missions in the Kehukee Baptist Association in North Caroline, from whence Reuban had come. The two events so closely joined together possibly is an explanation for the speed in which… Read More

The First Rising Opposition To The Board of Foreign and Domestic Missions ANNOTATION: We will here present a common sample of the letters the Baptist Board of Foreign And Domestic Missions sent out to all the Baptists’ associations in America, beginning in 1814. We must use Minutes of early associations that existed in 1814. For this reason, we have selected the historical note by Henry C. Vedder, the historian for the American… Read More

Public Address To The Baptist Society – By Daniel Parker, 1820 ANNOTATION: Almost ALL Missionary Baptists Historians (if they can be so classed), state that (1) Daniel Parker founded the Primitive or Old School Baptists, and (2) that Daniel Parker was an illiterate preacher. Both statements are typically as far from the truth as the doctrine they preach. First, we have already proven that there was a wide-spread and numerous collection of… Read More

Kehukee Baptist Declaration – 1826 ANNOTATION: Elder Rueben Ross had preached the first Arminian sermon among Baptists near Port Royal, Tennessee in 1817. He had come from the Kehukee Baptist Association in North Carolina and settled in Tennessee. Over in the East, his brother, Martin Ross, also in the Kehukee Association had been preaching up missions from the commencement of the New Divinity Missionary Movement in 1805. He naturally supported the establishment… Read More

The Black Rock Address – 1832 ANNOTATION: The action of the Kehukee, the most well-known and largest of the Southern Associations of Baptists, had a profound and stunning effect on the mission advocates on the one hand, and the “Old Divinity” churches on the other. The “non-fellowship” declaration severed all mission societies, benevolent societies, socialists and anarchist societies, and secret societies connection to the Baptist Church. Unlike the Baptist Board of Foreign… Read More

Mississippi Baptists’ Reason and Appeals – 1844 [In 1844, some of the churches composing the Mount Pisgah Baptist Association in central Mississippi withdrew from that fellowship and formed the Bethany Association. Both these associations still exit today. Some of the churches in the Mount Pisgah have united into a Southern Baptist affiliated association, while the Mount Pisgah remains a “missionary” association outside of the Mississippi Baptist State Convention. The Reasons and Appeals… Read More

The White River Regular Baptist Association of Indiana, 1844 Circular Letter Beloved Brethren, Wishing you health and salvation, and if anything more loving and charming can be experienced from the bowels of the Christian religion, we give all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation.

My dear Friend in the Lord, Mrs. Peake, I am very glad that the memoir of our late dear friend, William Tiptaft, so far as written, has given satisfaction to yourself and my Oakham friends. I have had to steer a kind of middle course, which is always very difficult to maintain. On the one hand I wish to write an interesting biography, and on the other to make it as far… Read More

Dear Friend in the Truth, Mr. James Davis, Your handsome rug and the two muffs came safely to hand on the second of this month, and we beg to express our thanks for them; one of the muffs I have given to my dear wife, and my daughter begs to thank you very kindly for thinking of her and for sending her so pretty a present. Your last kind letter came to… Read More

My dear Friend, Joseph Parry, As regards myself, you have been rightly informed, for I have had an attack of my old illness, from which I am but slowly recovering. Mr. Gadsby expressed a great wish for me to marry his daughter at Gower Street Chapel; and as I had known her from an infant, I did not like to refuse. I took however the precaution of having a brougham to take… Read More

My dear Friend, Mr. Surin, I can only write you a few lines; but I know you will be glad to hear that I have thus far been brought through my London labors. I never before came to London so weak, both in body and in soul; but have found the Lord’s strength made perfect in my weakness. You know that I cannot take up with, and rest upon, such evidences and… Read More

My dear Friend, Mrs. Peake, I feel thankful to have returned to my own home in peace and safety, and to have been preserved during my absence as well as favoured with a sufficient measure of health and strength to fulfill all my engagements and to preach for fourteen Lord’s-days continuously. I hope also that I may say without presumption that the Lord helped me in soul as well as in body,… Read More

My dear afflicted and widowed Friend, Mrs. Brown, I desire sincerely to sympathize with you under your most distressing bereavement. It has indeed not come upon you unexpectedly, and thus your mind must have been in some good measure prepared for this desolating stroke. You have also the unspeakable consolation of knowing that your dear husband has passed away from this world of sin and sorrow to be forever with that dear… Read More

My dear Friend, Mrs. Peake, How we seem to stand, as it were, amid the dead and dying! How many of those with whom we have walked and talked on the things of God have passed away; and how, as each one is removed, it speaks as a personal warning, “You also be ready.” But we know well that all our readiness must be in Him and from Him who gave the… Read More

My dear and valued Friend, Mrs. Peake, I feel much obliged to you for your kind feeling towards my ministry among you, and could say much upon the point, if I could do so without seeming self-exaltation. The blessing of a sound healthy ministry is little appreciated, because, like our food, its influence upon the whole system cannot be always distinctly traced. To be kept from error which is so rife and… Read More
