MISSIONAY SERMNS ~y A. B. SIMPSON

'INTRODUCTION

by J. S. Sawin, April 1983

Camp meetings and Conventions were the scene of most of Simpson's

great missionary sermns. These great gatherings were also a

major reason. for the rapid growth and influence of the Alliance.

At these meetings Simpson imued the vast audiences with his

own missionary vision and burden.

Many of Simpson's missionary sermns were printed in his periodi-

cals. Below you will find a listing of them and the bibliographical data. His periodicals began with The Word, Work and

World, 1882-1887 and continued with The Christian Alliance

through The Alliance Weekly, 1888-1919. A couple of missionary

articles were also found in another Simpson periodical Livinq

Truths, 1902-1907. They are noted amng the missionary sermons.

Simpson did not publish a specific book of missionary sermons.

The closest publication is a travelogue of his trip around

the world in 1893 (January-July) to visit the mission fields.

Two books were published posthumusly, Missionary Messages,

1925 - (eight sermns) and The Challenge of Missions, 1926

(five sermons).

Before the list of missionary sermons, you probably would like

to know something of the time and place of the conventions.

All of the places listed were sumer meetinqs with the exception of the October convention at the Gospel Tabernacle, New York

City. You will note too that the majority of them occurred in

northeastern U.S .A. and in the Toronto area of Canada. The

Many of the conventions or cam meetings attracted several

thusand people sumer after sumer. The participats were

challenged and inspired and contributed hundreds of thousands

of dollars for foreign missions. Both young people and some

of middle aqe dedicated their lives for missionary work.

Rememer thai: in those days Alliance' churches, as we know them.

were virtually non-existent. People who thus responded were

usually memers of denominational churches and went home to

organize Alliance Branches. What they had received at camp

meetinqs they spread in their own communities. Thus a nondenominational Alliance grew and its influence widened.

Now for a listing of Simpson l s missionary sermons preached at

the conventions. You can count 121 sermns in the following

list plus 3 articles.

THE MISSIOLOGY OP A. ~. SIMPSON

It's still a live option as we approach our centennial.

IZ

Introduction

We belong to that great company of "sent ones" who are commissioner

to be "heralds of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. ~ Our Lord Jesus -leads

that company, - "as the Father sent 'Me ..., R and Paul stands as His

most prominent, immediate successor. The last ioa years have seen

many outstanding successors to Paul. A. B. Sim?son was one of

them. You, seated here today, are also part of that magnificent

company and happen to work with the C&MA. God raised us up through Simpson's leadership. Now, as we approach the celebration of our

centennia 1, 1887-1987, our future misSionary ministry can receive

some inspiration, challenge and direction by examining anew some of

Simpson's views of missionary endeavor.

So let me answer two ques-

tions that pertain to Dr. Simpson t s views of miss ionary work.

1. In what was his philosophy of missions rooted?

2. Around what did his plan for missions revolve?

The answers will prove just as worthwhile to us today as they did to

Simpson and his generation. You can share them in some form with the

congregations to whom you minister.

Simpson can best tell you about his experiences. For his conversion

experience, A. Eo' Thompson recorded it in his biography of Simpson,

p. 16-18. Simpson gave an overall view of his crisis experiences

during a sermon delivered at Bethshan, London, England in June, 1885.

He testified:

wSome twenty-seven years ago (1858) I floundered for ten

months in the waters of despondency, and I got out of them

just by believing Jesus as my Saviour. Abut twelve years

ago, (1874) I got into another deep experience of conviction, and I got out of that by believing in Jesus as my

Sanctifier. After years of teaching from and waiting on

Him, about four years ago (1881~ when broken down physically

in every way so that I had no strength for my work, the

Lord Jesus Christ showed me that it was His blessed will to

be my complete Saviour for body as well as soul; and wi th a

heart that fainted at the slightest effort and having been

laid aside a dozen timer from my work, I came to Him; and

alone with Him I lifted my hand to heaven and made three

solem pledges: The first was, that I solemnly believed

tha t this Gospe 1 of healing was truly God's Word -- I had

to stand on the truth or I could not get the life. The

second wasi I solemnly took it for myself as given to me

and believed it was mine and that I was now healed; and not

only healed, but that I had the full strength of my risen Lord for the rest of my work for Him. And the third thing

I believed was thi~ - that He, keeping all these pledges

in me and for me, I should not refuse to use this truth for

the help of others, if he needed it. And with those sacred

(16 )

~

pledges I came back to New York where I was then a pastor.

Now, for four years I have been separated by Providence from

my former ecclesiastical surroundings.

The Chairman interposed: Yes, you resigned your pastorate, resigned

your salary and took up evangelistic work for the Lord in spirit,

soul and body!

(Mr. Simpson continuing): Well, from that hour I have been

permitted by God to work (I say this to His honor and thousands

could bear witness to it), and I have worked about four times as hard as I ever did in my life. I have had the entire charge

of a large magazine, for which I have done half the wri tinq

and all the editing and supervision for these four years. I

have been pastor of a church where we have had services every

night in the week, and three on ~nda~ And I have had charge

of a hamei - Berachah in New York, which is open for those

who come for healing, and where very many hundreds have called

in the past year. Now for these four years, I can truly say

tha~ wi th the exception of two nights, I have never been tired,

and those two nights I just felt the Lord wanted me to rest

on His bosom a little. But I thank God I have not had one

hour away from work and have not had one single sumer vacation. I have not done this to glory in it, but because I could not help it. I stand here to say, that the Lord Jesus

can be body and nerve and vi tal energy and brain and mind and

thought to those who will simply trust Him and not be afraid

to venture out in His strength. And I am glad to testify to-

night that He is true and faithful and all-sufficient."

N.W.W. Sept. 1885, p. 209

(17)

(See also a more complete personal testimony of healing by

A.B.Simpson in The Gospel of Kealing, chapter 6, t'. 155-174.)

'll

When Simpson returned to the scene of his first pastorate in

Hamilton, ONT to celebrate the 50th anniversary of his ordination, he testified concerning his sanctification experience

briefly mentioned above. He said of himself:

"The next great lesson the patient Master was pleased

to begin to teach him was the all-sufficiency of Christ.

Never shall he forget the morning that he spent in his

church study (in Louisville, Ky., 1874) readinq an old

musty book he had discovered in his library on the

subject, The Higher Christian Lifé (by W. E. Boardman).

He had struggled long and vainly with his own intense

nature, his stronq self-will, his peculiar temptations and his spiritual life that had been a constant humilia-

tion. He had talked to his people about the deeper

thinqs of the Spirit, òut there was a hollow ring and

his heart was breaking to know the Lord Jesus as a living

bright reality. As he pored over that little volume, he

saw a new light. The Lord Jesus revealed Himself as a

living and all sufficient presence: and he learned for the

first time that Christ had not saved us from future peril

and left us to fight the òattle as best we could, but He

who had justified us was waiting to sanctify us, to enter

into our spirit and substitute His strength, His holiness,

(18 )

22

.

His joy, His love, His faith, His power, for all our

worthlessness, helplessness, and nothingness i and

make it an actual and living facti-'I live, yet not I,

but Christ liveth in me. i It was indeed a new revela-

tion. Throwing himself at the feet of that glorious

Master, he claimed the mighty promise, 'I will dwell

in you and walk in you.' Across the threshold of his

spirit there passed a Being as real as the Christ who

came to John on Patmos and from that moment a new secret

has been the charm and glory and strength of his life

and testimony. ø

A.W. October 2, 1915 p. II

Shortly thereafter Simpson persuaded his fellow ministers in

Louisville to join together and invite n. w. Whittle and P. P.

Bliss to conduct a city-wide evangelistic campaign in their

city. Thus evangelism at home and abroad became the major

heart-throb of Simpson. s life and ministry, - the spontaneous

result of being filled with the Spirit.

B. His Views of Scripture

1) God speaks the Truth through authentic

Scriptures, - John 17: 8, 17; Heb. 1: 1 ,2

2) God loves the world in His Son, - John 3: 16;

Matt. 28:19,20

3) God awaits the comp1ettion of the Great

Commission, - Matt. 24: 14

(19 )

2S

Obviously these three statements indicate the Scriptural basis

of missions. Much could be quoted from Simpson to amplify

them, but you can adequately do

so yourself. The Biblical

foundation was the motivation of Christian missions for Simpson

and is for us as well. But we need to remind ourselves of its truth and allow it to permeate our messages. It should become

an inextinguishable fire within us.

Numer three became a vi tal force in Simpson's life and he

longed and worked to bring back the ~ing. Other missionaries

picked up this concern from Simpson and it sent men like R. A.,

Jaffray not only to unevangelized South China, but also into

Indo-China and Indonesia. Everyone must have the opportunity to accept or reject the Gospel. Jesus' return and world-wide

evangelization were thus joined.

II. His Plan Por Missions Revolved Around A. Improvement of the ordinary Christian's experience.

1) By Church and Convention meetings.

- preaching, teaching and missions

2) By literature distribution

3) By hym singing

B. Enlightenment of the Christian's Mind

1) Description of conditions in New York City

2) Description of heathen lands

3) Pleas for neglected areas:

a. b. c. d.

Congo Valley India Tibet South China

e. f. g. h.

Japan Annam Palestine South America

(20)

2~

You can almost see from the above outline what took place. You

have and will be participating ln similar activities and concerns.'

"A" indicates method and "B" indicates miSSionary informtion.

You, too, will be presenting your particuar area of need to the

Alliance people at conventions throughout North America.

As you prepare for convention n . nistries and work toward Alliance

Centennial goals, a question posed by A. T. Pierson in the early

1880s comes to mind. He asked in substance:

"00 we want to export to foreign countries the level of piety characteristic of ourselves and our churches?"

This too was Simpson's burden and accordingly his winter and

sumer conventions were targeted at the level of Christian life

and experience of the average Christian. He knew that dedicated,

Spirit-filled Christians provided both workers and money to do

the work. Preachers and missionaries jOined together at the

conventions to achieve these ends. The printed page, both the

magazines and books, accompliShed similar results. Simpson

often spoke of his paper parish and their support of Alliance work.

Hym Singing also contributed to the spiritual climate that

elevated the spiritual life of the people. Conventions today wi th

similar ingredients should result in needed workers and needed

funds and enhance the whole spiritual level of Alliance people

and churches.

Into this lively, spiritual atmosphere and reali ty you will pour

the vi tal missionary information that promotes the missionary

responsibili ties of the Alliance. Simpson thus used information.

(21)

25-

Before he left the Presbyterian ministry, he thoroughly researched.

the religious needs of New York City. What he learned caused him,

to forfeit a generous salary, launch out alone to evangelize the

ci ty and trst Go to make effective his ministry and to supply

his family needs. And so the missionary in

form tion and burden

that you convey to Alliance people will incite them to pray, to

give and to go.

Missionary vision and concern certainly is more than a mathemtical

calculation of one l s financial circumstances. Simpson flooded

people with facts, figues and conditions of people around the

world. His burden was thus transferred to others. Working girls

often pledged half of the meagre salaries they earned for missions.

Furthermre, it was the young ladies who more often than young

men offered themselves for overseas service. So the Alliance

was born and grew and so it must continue today.

Conclusion

This sumryof Simpson's views of misSionary concern and endeavor

is intended to simply motivate us all anew to continue and to

complete the task begun in heaven, consumated on the Cross and

emraced by Simpson and all those who continue in the work. We

have centennial goals. May God enable us to exceed them. The

story of the Good Samaritan Jesus applied by saying, "Go thou

and do likewise." There is much in the life and ministry of

A.B.Simpson that we could likewise emulate.
