Dark was the night, the wind was high, The way by mortals never trod; For God had made the channel dry, When faithful Moses stretched the rod. The raging waves on either hand Stood like a massy tott'ring wall, And on the heaven-defended band Refused to let the waters fall. With anxious footsteps, Is... Read More


When Israel knew not where to go, God made the fiery pillar glow; By night, by day, above the camp It led the way - their guiding lamp; Such is Thy Holy Word to me In day of dark perplexity. When devious paths before me spread, And all invite my foot to tread I hear Thy voice behind me say - "Believ... Read More

A Faithful Ministry

It is five years today, brethren, since I began my ministry among you in this place. It will be good for us today to stand up in the sight of God, and see how we have improved the years that are gone by. Let us observe, first of all, that faithful ministers preach Christ Jesus the Lord. Verse 5: 'Fo... Read More

A Time of Refreshing

“For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring: and they shall spring up as among the grass, as willows by the water courses. One shall say, I am the Lord’s” (Isaiah 44:3-5a, KJV). These words... Read More


I desire, my friends, to open up to you shortly the subject of adoption. By nature you are children of Satan; I would here show you how you may be made sons of God: "Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God" First, what is the fountain of...

THERE CAN BE NO DOUBT, dear friends that this is one of the most difficult passages in the Word of God. It has a depth in which an elephant may swim. Many have stumbled over it to their own destruction. Pray unfeignedly that we may be kept from erring in speaking from it. There are two principle int... Read More

Believers Not Ashamed...

THE FIRST THING I DESIRE you to notice, brethren, is the place where Paul was desirous to preach the gospel: 'As much as in me is, I am ready to preach the gospel to you that are at Rome also' (verse 15). We find Paul mentioning the same thing in the verses before: 'For I long to see you, that I may... Read More


Like mist on the mountain, Like ships on the sea, So swiftly the years Of our pilgrimage flee; In the grave of our fathers How soon we shall lie! Dear children, to-day To a Saviour fly. How sweet are the flowerets In April and may! But often the frost makes Them wither away. Like flowers you may fad... Read More

Christ The Door Into The Church

CHRIST IS THE KINDEST OF ALL teachers. He was speaking to a crowd of ignorant and prejudiced Jews, and yet how kindly he deals with them. He told them one parable, but they understood not. 'This parable spake Jesus unto them; but they understood not what things they were he spake unto them.' And yet... Read More

Christ's House and Servants

The Church On Earth Is Christ's House: "Who has left his house" (v34.). This parable represents the church on earth as Christ's home or dwelling. Because He is the foundation stone of it. Just as every stone of a building rests on the foundation, so does every believer rest on Christ. He is the foun... Read More


THE CONVERSION OF A SOUL IS BY by far the most remarkable event in the history of the world, although many of you do not care about it. It is the object that attracts the eyes of the holy angels to the spot where it takes place. It is the object which the Father's eye rests upon with tenderness and ... Read More

Do What You Can

FROM THE GOSPEL OF JOHN 11:2, we learn that this woman was Mary, the sister of Lazarus and Martha. We have already learned that she was an eminent believer: "She sat at the feet of Jesus, and heard His word." Jesus Himself said of her: "Mary hath chosen the good part, which shall not be taken away f... Read More

Electing Love

THIS IS A VERY HUMBLING, and at the same time, a very blessed word to the true disciple. It was very humbling to the disciples to be told that they had not chosen Christ. Your wants were so many, your hearts were so hard, that ye have not chosen me. And yet it was exceedingly comforting to the disci... Read More

Faith's View Of Christ

When the Lord of glory left his Father's bosom, and came into this world, we are sure it was for a purpose suited to his divine nature. Christ came to make men glad. It was said of him, 'The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, because the LORD hath appointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek' (... Read More


Isaiah viii. 6. Beneath Moriah's rocky side A gentle fountain springs, Silent and soft its waters glide, Like the peace the Spirit brings. The thirsty Arab stoops to drink Of the cool and quiet wave, And the thirsty spirit stops to think Of Him who came to save. Siloam is the fountain's name, It mea... Read More

Future Punishment Eternal

It is very interesting to notice who they are in the Bible that speak about hell. Now, some think that speaking about hell is not preaching the gospel; and others think that simple men have no right to speak of it. Now, to them who think it is not gospel preaching, I say it is the truth — the Word o... Read More

God's Rectitude In Future ...

Perhaps some of you may remember, about six months ago, I preached to you on the subject of an eternal hell — upon the worm that never dies, and the fire that is never quenched. There are many people that do not like to hear preaching about hell, and some people think that it is not preaching the go... Read More

Grieve Not The Holy Spirit

THE UNCONVERTED DO NOT LIKE to hear much about the Holy Ghost. The world cannot receive him because it seeth him not, neither knows him. Unconverted ministers do not often like to preach about the Holy Spirit. Unconverted hearers do not often like to hear about the Holy Spirit. How very foolish to m... Read More

High Time To Awake Out Of Sleep

IN THESE WORDS, Paul tells believers that it is waking time; and I would just tell you, dear friends, the same. It is high time for you to awake out of sleep. There is a condition among Christians which may be called sleeping; like the ten virgins, they slumber and sleep. Ah! I fear there are many s... Read More


Hebrews ix.9-13.—"Which was a figure for the time then present, in which were offered both gifts and sacrifices, that could not make him that did the service perfect, as pertaining to the conscience : Which stood only in meats, and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed on them ...
