A New Day

Soft rays of light diffuse the eastern skies, The darkness is dispelled, the night has gone, While in the glowing light I visualize The breaking day, the beauty of the dawn.   And as I watch the lovely day unfold, The light fall softly on the sleeping earth; The sun appears, a revelation gold, It […]

Tempted of God

Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God.  James 1:13 The Word of God comes to us with a note of warning.  When the hosts of darkness are set in battle array against us and temptations beset us from every side, when Satan lays his snares for us, threatening us […]

The Home Front

Beacon Lights has “gone to war”.  Or, better said, it has found its own defense program. No one thought when our paper first came into existence that it would be called upon so soon to serve a double purpose, one for the societies at home, and another for our boys in the armed forces.  But […]

Unconditional Surrender

Unconditional Surrender              We cannot very well overlook the recent historic meeting of Roosevelt and Churchill in our survey of the news.  By this time that meeting may be classed as “old” news, but we have been given to understand that the things which were discussed and decided will make themselves known by actual events […]

When Many Are One

Mrs. Van was early as usual.  She walked slowly toward an old building.  It was old, but the green grass on the sloping lawn all around seemed to garb it with dignity.  It stood a little apart from the houses around it and the whiteness of its pillars and the color and design of its […]

To Our Boys In Service

Dear fellows: A good deal has happened on the “home front” since I wrote my last letter to you, and I know that you are deeply interested in “the home front” particularly as far as it concerns that front from the viewpoint of the Church.  First of all, more and more of our boys are […]

Letters from Our Boys

Camp Peary, Virginia Dear Friends: I received my copy of Beacon Lights today.  I have read part of it and its contents surely are a comfort to me.  It, besides my Bible, is so far my only reading material pertaining to our truth. I have received many letters from relatives and friends and am kept […]

The Church and Modern Youth

“What must we do about our young people? They’re going to the dogs. Something must be done.” Such is the almost frantic sentiment of older people today. I, although belonging to the group called “youth”, agree with this sentiment; but I take a more definite stand.  I believe that the church is the corrupt tree […]

Hebrews 11

Outline 22 THE PASSAGE OF THE RED SEA 2nd week of March Heb. 11:29—By faith they passed through the Red Sea as by dry land: which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned. By all means reread the narrative as told in Exodus 14. A MIGHTY MIRACLE The Lord deliberately led Israel in their exodus […]

We as Young People gathered here Our gratitude is God’s For all His care and sympathy, Which gratefully endures. I’ve tried to use the passing hours, So they would bring no sigh, For all the happy days with them, To whom we now must say, Good-bye.   Dear boys, we shall ne’er forget. The old […]
