Chapter 22 A Warning

A warning note was raised by the apostle Peter in his ministry to the saints of old, “Be sober, be vigilent; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8). The history of the Church since then has been one marked by much failure, because of the assaults of that powerful adversary, called the “accuser of the brethren”—often devouring the fellowship of believers in their assembly testimony. That he has accomplished this s...

Chapter 21 His Return To U. S. A.

The long ocean trip from Australia to California was uneventful but much enjoyed by Mr. McClure. He arrived safely in San Francisco and received a royal welcome in the McIntyre home.

Chapter 19 Auckland

The reader can easily discern why he was not a denominational preacher, nor yet an inter-denominational preacher, also the r...

Chapter 18 New Zealand (1907-1909)

The voyage from South Africa to New Zealand occupied considerable time, but Mr. McClure being a lover of the sea the trip was a pleasure to him, and it moreover gave him opportunity to rest and prepare for the work lying before him in another new sphere of labor. He arrived in Wellington in time to attend the Easter conference meetings, at which his presence and ministry found great acceptance and appreciation among the believers.
