Abram: The Friend of God

What we see in the word of God before this remarkable account of the call of Abram, though profitable surely for us, is also humbling; and none the less the more we think of it, and see what God has told us of man's sin and ruin, not merely as bringing on the flood, but as following it. What was to ... Read More

Deliverance

NOTES OF A LECTURE ON ROMANS 8: 1-4 The beginning of Romans 8 is the full answer to the cry of wretchedness in Romans 7: "O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?" There are three great parts in the deliverance: first, the setting free of the soul at the commenceme... Read More

Law and Grace

Exodus 34; 2 Corinthians 3. It is important to see that there were two distinct occasions in which we find tables of stone, according to God's command, committed, though in a different way, to man. On the first occasion, as we know, there was total ruin; and when God uttered His commands then, after... Read More

On the Lord's Announcement of Gentile Judgments.

Appendix of 'The Second Coming and Kingdom of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. As this, it seems, is liable to be misunderstood, I add a few words here to say that my allusion was especially to Luke 21: 25-27, and 35. "And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upo... Read More

The Appearing and Kingdom of the Lord Jesus.

Lecture 7 of 'The Second Coming and Kingdom of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. As my subject tonight is the appearing and kingdom of the Lord Jesus, I have read these verses simply to establish, in a clear and concise form, the distinct proof that the appearing of the Lord Jesus is the introducti...

The Christian Hope and the Sure Word of Prophecy.

Lecture 1 of 'The Second Coming and Kingdom of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The hope of the Christian has suffered much from being confounded with the prophetic word. It is not denied that prophecy is of God. As this very passage tells us, we do well to take heed to it; nevertheless it remains... Read More

The Church of God in Relation to the Coming of the Lord.

Lecture 4 of 'The Second Coming and Kingdom of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. On a previous occasion we have seen the primary place which Israel had in the earthly purposes of God. Upon their land the eyes of Jehovah rested continually. Although for a season, to outward appearance, Israel lost t... Read More

The Gentiles in relation to the Coming of the Lord.

Lecture 3 of 'The Second Coming and Kingdom of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. This remarkable Scripture establishes a truth of the highest importance, often forgotten now, but continually assumed throughout the great mass of the prophecies of God. The people of Israel are the necessary centre in... Read More

The Jews in relation to the Coming of the Lord.

Lecture 2 of 'The Second Coming and Kingdom of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Our Saviour's words seem to me to be clear and conclusive. They meet a notion that prevails too largely even among the children of God — the notion that God has done with the Jew as such; that there is no longer a hope... Read More

The Judgment and the Eternal State.

Lecture 8 of 'The Second Coming and Kingdom of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. I have read this portion of Scripture, not because it is by any means the sole authority for the truths of the judgment and the eternal state, which it is my present business to assert and to prove from the word of God...

The Rapture of the Saints Raised or Changed at Christ's Coming.

Lecture 5 of 'The Second Coming and Kingdom of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. It is a matter of thankfulness to God, that the very adversaries of the truth that will be asserted tonight are compelled to correct their own theories. The force of that truth is such as cannot be honestly gainsaid. T... Read More

The Revelation of God

It is an immense thing to have a revelation of God. I do not mean merely a revelation from God, but a revelation of God Himself. God has given us both: revelations, again and again, revelations of the most varied character; revelations in the most suitable order; but, most of all, and specially with... Read More

The Second Advent Before, not After, the Millennium.

Scripture is not only the mine, but the standard, of truth. Error cannot stand before the inspired word. Not that the believer is competent of himself either to draw out or to apply aright; our sufficiency is from God, Who also made us sufficient, says the apostle, as ministers of a new covenant, no...

The Tribulation, and those who are to pass through it.

Lecture 6 of 'The Second Coming and Kingdom of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The subject for consideration tonight is the great tribulation, — the light which Scripture affords as to those on whom it shall fall, and as to those who shall escape it, though destined, according, to the word of God...

Thoughts on 1 Corinthians 15.

It is amazingly sweet that the very day on which we came together to remember Christ, and to show forth His death, speaks to the intelligent ear of eternal blessedness — tells those who come at the bidding of the Lord Jesus that the great victory is won; that that is removed which was the only diffi...

We Must All Be Manifested

2 Cor. 5; John 5. Judgment is never properly understood in its real depth, as well as its comprehensiveness, unless salvation be also rightly apprehended. A great effort of the enemy, working on the unbelief of man, is to confound these two things. The object is evident. Man in flesh, i.e., in his n... Read More
