SermonThe Old Way Which Wicked Men Have Trodden
       "Hast thou marked the old way, which wicked men have trodden? Which were cut down out of time, whose foundation was overthrown with a flood: Which said unto God, depart from us; and what can the Almighty do for them?" Job 12:15, 16, 17 Wide, says our Divine Teacher, is the gate, and broad is the way, which leadeth to destruction; and many ther
SermonThe Oppressed Soul Seeking Divine Interposition
       "O Lord, I am oppressed; undertake for me." Isaiah 38:14 These words compose part of a psalm, penned by Hezekiah, king of Judah, on his miraculous recovery from a dangerous disease. In the first part of this psalm, he describes the views and feelings which occupied his mind when he saw himself apparently on the brink of the grave. From this de
SermonThe Oracles of God
       "What advantage then hath the Jew? or what profit is there of circumcision? much every way; chiefly, because that unto them were committed the oracles of God" Romans 3:1, 2 With the history of God's ancient people, of his gracious interpositions in their favor, and of the distinguished blessings which he conferred on them; this assembly are, i
SermonThe Promised Fruit of Christ's Sufferings
       "He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied" Isaiah 53:11 Could any of us have seen what angels saw, when the Son of God left the bosom of his Father, and exchanged a throne in heaven for a manger on earth; could we have seen him divesting himself of his glory, laying aside the form of God, assuming the form of a servant,
SermonThe Punishment of the Wicked Dreadful and Interminable
       "Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched" Mark 9:44 A minister, my hearers, who would be faithful, must frequently compare his preaching with the scriptures, and inquire, not only whether he preached the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, but whether he gives to every particular doctrine and precept just that p
SermonThe Safety of Religion
       "He that walketh uprightly, walketh surely." Proverbs 10:9. The term walk, as used by the inspired writers, signifies a course of conduct. To walk uprightly, then, is to pursue a course of uprightness, or integrity. Our text assures us, that he who pursues such a course walketh surely. He walks safely, for he is safe while pursuing such a cour
SermonThe Second Coming of Christ
       "Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him; and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him: even so. Amen." Revelation 1:7 An apostle, speaking of the Lord's supper, intimates that the church will continue to partake of it, and by partaking of it to show forth his death until he shall
SermonThe Sin, Danger, and Unreasonableness of Despair
       "And they said, there is no hope; but we will walk after our own devices, and we will every one do the imagination of his evil heart" Jeremiah 28:12 There are two ways, my friends, in which the great enemy and deceiver of men endeavors, and alas! but too successfully, to effect their eternal ruin. In the first place, he labors, by a variety of
SermonThe Sinners Mistakes Exposed and Reproved
       "These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself; but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes. Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver." Psalm 50:21, 22 The doctrine of a judgment to come is no new doctrine.
SermonThe Sleeper Awakened
       "What meanest thou, O sleeper? Arise, call upon thy God; if so he God will think upon us, that we perish not." Jonah 1:6 In the preceding verses of this chapter, we are informed, that God gave a commission to the prophet Jonah, to go unto Nineveh, the capital of Assyria, and denounce heavy judgments against its inhabitants, on account of the s
SermonThe Stubborn Sinner Submitting to God
       "I have surely heard Ephraim bemoaning himself thus; Thou hast chastised me, and I was chastised, as a bullock unaccustomed to the yoke; turn thou me, and I shall be turned; for thou art the Lord my God. Surely, after that I was turned, I repented; and after that I was instructed, I smote upon my thigh; I was ashamed, yea, even confounded, because
SermonThe Timely Presence and Salutation of Jesus
       "And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, peace be unto you" Luke 24:36 When we are studying the character of a person of whom we know little, but whom we have particular reasons for wishing to know thoroughly, every part of his past and present conduct becomes, in our view, highly interesting. We
SermonThe Universal Law of Forgiveness
       "If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him. And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him" Luke 17:3, 4 On hearing this passage read, you will probably conclude, that the duty of forgiving those who injure us, is
SermonThe Wicked Through Pride Refuse to Seek God
       "The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God" Psalm 10:4 In this psalm we have a full length portrait of a careless, unawakened sinner, drawn by the unerring pencil of truth; and so perfect is the resemblance, that were it not for the blinding influence of sin, every such sinner would discover in it, as in a glass
SermonTitles of Christ
       "Unto us a child is born; unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end" Isaiah 9:6, 7 In the preceding context the prophet, "rapt into futur
SermonWaiting for Death
       "All the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come." Joshua 14:14 These are the words of Job. The resolution which they express was formed by him when he was in the most wretched state, to which a good man can be reduced. The overwhelming weight of his afflictions, combined with the sudden and surprising manner in which they a
SermonWhy the Wicked are Spared for a Season
       "For the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full" Genesis 15:16 These words were addressed by Jehovah to Abraham, when he first promised to give his posterity the land of Canaan. While giving him this promise God informed him, that it would not be fulfilled till after the lapse of a considerable number of years; and assigned the reason of thi
