SermonSermons on National Subjects, 9 - THE COMFORTER
      FOURTH SUNDAY AFTER EASTER. If I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send Him unto you--JOHN xvi. 7. We are now coming near to two great days, Ascension-day and Whit- Sunday, which our forefathers have appointed, year by year, to put us continually in mind of two great works, which the Lord worked out fo
SermonSermons on National Subjects, 10 - WHIT SUNDAY
      The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance--against such there is no law.--GALATIANS v. 22, 23. In all countries, and in all ages, the world has been full of complaints of Law and Government. And one hears the same complaints in England now. You hear complaints that the laws favo
SermonSermons on National Subjects, 11 - ASCENSION DAY
      And Jesus led them out as far as to Bethany; and he lifted up his hands and blessed them. And it came to pass while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven. And they worshipped him and returned to Jerusalem, with great joy; and were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God--LUKE xxiv. 50- 53. On this day
SermonSermons on National Subjects, 12 - THE FOUNT OF SCIENCE
      (A Sermon Preached at St. Margaret's Church, Westminster, May 4th, 1851, in behalf of the Westminster Hospital.) When He ascended up on high, He led captivity captive, and received gifts for men, yea, even for his enemies, that the Lord God might dwell among them.--PSALM lxviii. 18, and EPHESIANS iv. 8. If, a thousand years ago, a congregatio
SermonSermons on National Subjects, 13 - FIRST SERMON ON THE CHOLERA
      (Sunday Morning, September 27th, 1849.) God's judgments are from above, out of the sight of the wicked.-- PSALM X. 5. We have just been praying to God to remove from us the cholera, which we call a judgment of God, a chastisement; and God knows we have need enough to do so. But we can hardly expect God to withdraw His chastisement unless we c
SermonSermons on National Subjects, 14 - SECOND SERMON ON THE CHOLERA
      Visiting the sins of the fathers upon the children.--EXODUS xx. 5. In my sermon last Sunday I said plainly that cholera, fever, and many more diseases were man's own fault, and that they were God's judgments just because they were man's own fault, because they were God's plainspoken opinion of the sin of filth and of habits of living unfit for c
SermonSermons on National Subjects, 15 - THIRD SERMON ON THE CHOLERA
      I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the Fathers upon the children, unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me.--EXODUS xx. 6. Many of you were perhaps surprised and puzzled by my saying in my last sermon that God's visiting the sins of the fathers on the children, and letting the innocent suffer for the g
SermonSermons on National Subjects, 16 - ON THE DAY OF THANKSGIVING
      (Nov. 15th, 1849.) God hath visited his people.--LUKE vii. 16. We are assembled this day to thank God solemnly for the passing away of the cholera from England; and we must surely not forget to thank Him at the same time for the passing away of the fever, which has caused so much expense, sorrow, and death among us. Now I wish to say a very f
SermonSermons on National Subjects, 17 - THE COVENANT
      The Lord hath chosen Jacob unto himself, and Israel for his own possession. For I know that the Lord is great, and that our Lord is above all gods. Whatsoever the Lord pleased, that did he in heaven and earth, and in the sea, and in all deep places.--PSALM cxxxv. 4, 5, 6. Were you ever puzzled to find out why the Psalms are read every Sunday in
SermonSermons on National Subjects, 18 - NATIONAL REWARDS AND PUNISHMENTS
      And that which cometh into your mind shall not be at all; that ye say, We will be as the heathen, as the families of the countries, to serve wood and stone. As I live, saith the Lord God, surely with a mighty hand, and with a stretched out arm, and with fury poured out, will I rule over you. . . . And ye shall know that I am the Lord.-- EZEKIEL xx.
SermonSermons on National Subjects, 19 - THE DELIVERANCE OF JERUSALEM
      And it came to pass that the angel of the Lord went out, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians an hundred and eighty five thousand: and when they arose in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses.-- 2 KINGS xix. 35. You heard read in the first lesson last Sunday afternoon, the threats of the king of Assyria against Jerusalem, and his def
SermonSermons on National Subjects, 20 - PROFESSION AND PRACTICE
      Though they say, "The Lord liveth," surely they swear falsely.-- JEREMIAH v. 2. I spoke last Sunday morning of the wonderful way in which the Lord delivered the Jews from the Assyrian army, and I promised to try and explain to you this morning, the reason why the Lord allowed the Assyrians to come into Judaea, and ravage the whole country except
SermonSermons on National Subjects, 21 - THE UNFAITHFUL SERVANT
      But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the men servants and the maid servants, and to eat and drink and to be drunken; the lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him asunder, and will appoint him his portion with t
SermonSermons on National Subjects, 22 - THE WAY TO WEALTH
      Seek ye the Lord while He may be found, call ye upon Him while He is near: let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts and let him return unto the Lord, and He will have mercy upon him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.--ISAIAH lv. 6, 7. Some of you, surely, while the first lesson was being read this morning
SermonSermons on National Subjects, 23 - THE LOVE OF CHRIST
      For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead. And that He died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto Him which died for them, and rose again.--2 COR. v. 14, 15. What is the use of sermons?--what is the use of books? Here are hundreds and t
SermonSermons on National Subjects, 24 - DAVID'S VICTORY
      Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the Lord of armies, the God of Israel, whom thou hast defied.--1 SAMUEL xvii. 45. We have been reading to-day the story of David's victory over the Philistine giant, Goliath. Now I think the whole history of David may teach us more about the me
SermonSermons on National Subjects, 25 - DAVID'S EDUCATION
      Made perfect through sufferings.--HEBREWS ii. 10. That is my text; and a very fit one for another sermon about David, the king after God's own heart. And a very fit one too, for any sermon preached to people living in this world now or at any time. "A melancholy text," you will say. But what if it be melancholy? That is not the fault of me, the
SermonSermons on National Subjects, 26 - THE VALUE OF LAW
      Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God. The powers that be are ordained of God.--ROMANS xiii. 1. What is the difference between a civilised man and a savage? You will say: A civilised man can read and write; he has books and education; he knows how to make numberless things which makes his life comfort
SermonSermons on National Subjects, 27 - THE SOURCE OF LAW
      Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God. The powers that be are ordained of God.--ROMANS xiii. 1. In this chapter, which we read for the second lesson for this afternoon's service, St. Paul gives good advice to the Romans, and equally good advice to us. Of course what he says must be equally good for
SermonSermons on National Subjects, 28 - THE EDUCATION OF A HEATHEN
      Now I Nebuchadnezzar praise, and extol, and honour the King of heaven, all whose works are truth, and His ways judgment; and those that walk in pride He is able to abase.--DANIEL iv. 37. We read for the first lesson to-day two chapters out of the book of Daniel. Those who love to study their Bibles, have read often, of course, not only these two
