In our ongoing website upgrade process, we're now re-releasing the audio messages from Camp Meeting 2007. The speakers that year were Dr. Jon Tal Murphree (evangelist), Dr. Bob Bagley (Bible teacher), and Rod and Kathy Johnson from World Gospel Missions.
A question for those of your who were at camp in 2007: Did you find one or more of these messages memorable? And whether you were there or not, as you listen to these messages on the website, which of them speaks to you now — and why? Please share your thoughts and testimonies in the “Comments” section below.
With Camp Meeting 2012 behind us, we're now moving into to Phase 2 of our website update project. It's time to pull in the messages from previous camp meeting years. Because Dr. Gary Henecke will be our 2013 Camp Evangelist, Lord willing, we have started with the year 2010, when Dr. Henecke was with us previously. You'll also find messages by Tom Dunbar, WGM missionaries Michael & Brenda Guilliams, and the first year of “moments from history” from our founder, Isaiah Reid (as portrayed by Rev. Jim Kerwin).
We've added a new item in our menu bar above — IHA Audio Archives. Right now, the only drop-down menu item available is 2010 Camp Meeting Messages; but this menu is where visitors will be able to access each camp meeting's messages as more years are added.
Consider this the first step in preparing for and praying for next year's camp meeting!
Tarrying for the Shine by Isaiah Reid
(the 16th and final part of his book “How They Grow”)
Isaiah Reid, founder of the Iowa Holiness Association
In this hasty generation, we want everything quickly, including patience and maturity! And what about those who receive the gracious experience of a pure heart by faith from God, and then decide that they have “arrived” spiritually, with no further need for growth?
By means of a “time lapse” view of an apple in his garden, Isaiah Reid helps us take the long view of how the Lord works maturity in us, all by means of those experiences and challenges through which He helps to be “perfecting holiness in the fear of God.”
This essay, Tarrying for the Shine, is the last chapter in Reid's book “How They Grow.” (Note: This article served as the basis for the message on the last night of the Iowa Holiness Association's Camp Meeting 2012 in Jim Kerwin's portrayal of Isaiah Reid.)
