Tears Shall Cease
      And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes. (Revelation 21:4) Yes, we shall carne to this if we are believers. Sorrow shalt cease, and tears shall be wiped away. This is the world of weeping, but it passes away. There shall be a new heaven and a n ... read more

Tell me . . . where Thou feedest
      These words express the desire of the believer after Christ, and his longing for present communion with Him. Where doest Thou feed Thy flock? In Thy house? I will go, if I may find Thee there. In private prayer? Then I will pray without ceasing. In the Wo ... read more

Tender Comfort
      As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you. (Isaiah 66:13) A mother's comfort! Ah, this is tenderness itself. How she enters into her child's grief! How she presses him to her bosom and tries to take all his sorrow into her own heart! He ca ... read more

Thank Him; Dwell Acceptably
      Surely the righteous shall give thanks unto thy name: the upright shall dwell in thy presence. (Psalm 140:13) Oh, that my heart may be upright, that I may always be able to bless the name of the Lord! He is so good to those that be good, that I would fai ... read more

Thankful For Liberty
      How grateful we ought to be that we can meet together to worship God after that form which best satisfies our consciences without any fear of being hunted down by the authorities of the land.... We put none at the front door of our conventicle to watch le ... read more

That is all they have to enjoy
      "Turn away my eyes from beholding vanity!" Psalm 119:37 No Christian enjoys comfort—when his eyes are fixed on vanity. I do not blame ungodly men for rushing to their pleasures. Why should I? Let them have their fill. That is all they have to enjoy! ... read more

That through death He might destroy him
      O child of God, death hath lost its sting, because the devil's power over it is destroyed. Then cease to fear dying. Ask grace from God the Holy Ghost, that by an intimate knowledge and a firm belief of thy Redeemer's death, thou mayst be strengthened f ... read more

That unclean donkey is yourself!
      "You must redeem the firstborn donkey with a lamb. But if you do not redeem it—you must kill the donkey by breaking its neck!" Exodus 34:20 Every firstborn creature must be the Lord's—but since the donkey was unclean, it could not be presented in sacri ... read more

That We Might Live Also With Him
      You read of the eunuch to whom the question was put, “Dost thou believe in the Lord Jesus Christ? for if thou believest with all thy heart thou mayest;” and then on confession of his faith he was baptized. I have opened my mouth unto the Lord in that ... read more

The Abiding of the Spirit the Glory of the Church
      SATAN is always doing his utmost to stay the work of God. He hindered these Jews from building the temple; and to-day he endeavours to hinder the people of God from spreading the gospel. A spiritual temple is to be builded for the Most High, and if by any ... read more

The Agreement of Salvation by Grace with Walking in Good Works
      I shall call your attention to the near neighborhood of these two phrases, "Not of works," and "Created in Christ Jesus unto good works." The text reads with a singular sound; for it seems strange to the ear that good works should be negatived as the caus ... read more

The Alarum
      The proper subject to treat upon with such a text would be the propriety and excellence of early rising, especially when we are desirous of praising or serving God. The dew of dawn should be consecrated to devotion. The text is a very remarkable expressio ... read more

The Allegories of Sarah and Hagar
      THERE cannot be a greater difference in the world between two things than there is between law and grace. And yet, strange to say, while the things are diametrically opposed and essentially different from each other, the human mind is so depraved, and the ... read more

The Amen
      The word AMEN solemnly confirms that which went before; and Jesus is the great Confirmer; immutable, for ever is "the Amen" in all His promises. Sinner, I would comfort thee with this reflection. Jesus Christ said, "Come unto me all ye that labour and ... read more

The Approachableness of Jesus
      THE MOST DEPRAVED and despised classes of society formed an inner ring of hearers around our Lord. I gather from this that he was a most approachable person, that he was not of repulsive manners, but that he courted human confidence and was willing that m ... read more

The Ark of His Covenant
      I SHALL take the passage quite by itself. I do not fully understand its connection, whether it relates to that which goes before or that which comes afterwards; and happily, it is necessary for us to know this, for the passage stands complete in itself, a ... read more

The Ascension and the Second Advent Practically Considered
      FOUR GREAT EVENTS shine out brightly in our Savior's story. All Christian minds delight to dwell upon his birth, his death, his resurrection, and his ascension. These make four rounds in that ladder of light, the foot of which is upon the earth, but the t ... read more

The Ascension of Christ
      OUR blessed Lord and Master has gone from us. From the mount of Olives, the place where in dread conflict his garments were rolled in blood, he has mounted in triumph to his throne. After having shown himself for forty days amongst his beloved disciples, ... read more

The Axe at the Root—A Testimony Against Puseyite Idolatry
      THE WOMAN'S CONSCIENCE had been aroused by Christ's declaration of her sin. He was touching upon matters of the most vital importance, and her depraved heart naturally shrunk from the lancet, From the truth which was becoming inconveniently personal she f ... read more

The Baptist Union Censure (February, 1888)
      THE censure passed upon me by the Council of the Baptist Union will be weighed by the faithful, and estimated at its true value. "Afterwards they have no more that they can do." I brought no charges before the members of the Council, because they could ... read more

The Barley Field on Fire
      YOU REMEMBER the historical narrative. Absalom had fled from Jerusalem under fear of David's anger. He was after a time permitted to return; but he was not admitted into the presence of the king. Earnestly desiring to be restored to his former posts of ho ... read more

The barrel of meal wasted not
      See the faithfulness of divine love. You observe that this woman had daily necessities. She had herself and her son to feed in a time of famine; and now, in addition, the prophet Elijah was to be fed too. But though the need was threefold, yet the supply ... read more

The Battle of Life
      THIS question occurs in the course of an argument. The Apostle was proving that the minister who gives all his time to the preaching of the Word is entitled to a maintenance from those people amongst whom he labours. He gives divers illustrations, amongst ... read more

The Beatific Vision
      IT IS one of the most natural desires in all the world, that when we hear of a great and a good man, we should wish to see his person. When we read the works of any eminent author, we are accustomed to turn to the frontispiece to look for his portrait. Wh ... read more

The Bed and Its Covering
      GOD HAS SO made men, that there are two things essential for their comfort, if not for their very existence, namely, sleep and clothing. Had God so pleased it, he might have made man an everlasting watcher, upon whose eyes the mists of night never should ... read more

The Believer A New Creature
      THIS TEXT IS exceedingly full of matter, and might require many treatises, and even multitudes of folios, to bring forth all its meaning. Holy Scripture is notably sententious. Human teachers are given to verbiage; we multiply words to express our meaning ... read more

The Believing Thief
      SOME TIME AGO I preached upon the whole story of the dying thief.* I do not propose to do the same to-day, but only to look at it from one particular point of view. The story of the salvation of the dying thief is a standing instance of the power of Chris ... read more

The Beloved Pastor's Plea for Unity
      IN A FEW MINUTES we shall gather together as members of the Church of Christ to celebrate the memorial of his death. It is a memorable sight to see so many Christian people sitting together with the object of observing this ordinance. Frequently as I have ... read more

The Best Beloved
      NO WORDS can ever express the gratitude we owe to Him who loved us even when we were dead in trespasses and sins: the love of Jesus is unutterably precious and worthy of daily praise. No songs can ever fitly celebrate the triumphs of that salvation which ... read more

The Best Way To Come To Christ
      The best way to come to Christ is to come meaning to get everything, and to obtain all the plenitude of grace, which he has laid up in store, and promised freely to give. Some poor souls who come to Jesus Christ seem as if they wanted a little relief from ... read more

The Bible's First Promise
      And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. (Genesis 3:15) This is the first promise to fallen man. It contains the whole gospel and the essence of the cov ... read more

The Bible's Supreme Place
      Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them. (Psalm 119:165) Yes, a true love for the great Book will bring us great peace from the great God and be a great protection to us. Let us live constantly in the society of the law of ... read more

The Blessing of Full Assurance

The Blind Beggar
      THIS POOR MAN was beset with two great evils—blindness and poverty. It is sad enough to be blind, but If a man that is blind is in possession of riches, there are ten thousand comforts which may help to cheer the darkness of his eye and alleviate the sadn ... read more

The Bliss of the Glorified
      WE cannot too often turn our thoughts heavenward, for this is one of the great cures for worldliness. The way to liberate our souls from the bonds that tie us to earth is to strengthen the cords that kind us to heaven. You will think less of this poor lit ... read more

The Breaker!
      "The Breaker has gone up before them. He will bring you through the gates of your cities of captivity, back to your own land. Your King will lead you; the Lord Himself will guide you!" Micah 2:13 Inasmuch as Jesus has gone before us, things do not rema ... read more

The Care of the Poor
      The Lord will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing. (Psalm 41:3) Remember that this is a promise to the man who considers the poor. Are you one of these? Then take home the text. See how in the hour of sickness the God of the poor will bless the ... read more

The Case Proved (October, 1887)
      THE controversy which has arisen out of our previous articles is very wide in its range. Different minds will have their own opinions as to the manner in which the combatants have behaved themselves; for our own part we are content to let a thousand perso ... read more

The Day of Atonement
       "This shall be an everlasting statute unto you, to make an atonement for the children of Israel for all their sins once a year."-Leviticus 16:34. The Jews had many striking ceremonies which marvellously set forth the death ... read more

The Devil has been vanquished by Christ
      Though Satan is not dead, my brethren, I was about to say, would God he were, and though he is not converted, and never will be, nor will the malice of his heart ever be driven from him, yet Christ has so far broken his head that he has missed his mark al ... read more

The devil's jackals!
      "One evening David got up from his bed and strolled around on the roof of the palace. From the roof he saw a woman bathing—a very beautiful woman." 2 Samuel 11:2 At that hour David saw Bathsheba. We are never out of the reach of temptation! Both at hom ... read more

The diamond rivet!
      "The Lord will give grace and glory!" Psalm 84:11 Jehovah is bounteous in His nature—to give is His delight. His gifts are precious beyond measure, and are as freely given as the light of the sun! He freely gives grace in all its forms, to all His p ... read more

The diamonds of heaven!
      "Behold—he prays!" Acts 9:11 Prayers are instantly noticed in heaven. The moment Saul began to pray—the Lord heard him. Here is comfort for the distressed, but praying soul. Oftentimes a poor broken-hearted one bends his knee—but can only utter his wai ... read more

The dove came in to him in the evening
      Blessed be the Lord for another day of mercy, even though I am now weary with its toils. Unto the preserver of men lift I my song of gratitude. The dove found no rest out of the ark, and therefore returned to it; and my soul has learned yet more fully tha ... read more

The Down Grade (April, 1887)
      THE period from 1688, when William III. began his reign, to the time of the commencement of the long reign of George III., has been described as "a quiet time" among Nonconformists. It was so in more senses than one. There was a cessation of open and or ... read more

The Dross Purged
      And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried; they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The Lord is my God. (Zechar ... read more

The Enemy Frustrated
      Therefore thus saith the Lord concerning the king of Assyria, He shall not come into this city, nor shoot an arrow there, nor come before it with shield, nor cast a bank against it. (2 Kings 19:32) Neither did Sennacherib molest the city. He had boasted ... read more

The eyes of God see it all
      It ought to be a subject of great joy to all righteous souls that the world is not left to itself, or to tyrants: the might is with the right after all, for power belongeth unto God. There is a Governor and Ruler who is Lord of all, and all power is in hi ... read more

The Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world
      It is a sweet thought that Jesus Christ did not come forth without His Father's permission, authority, consent, and assistance. He was sent of the Father, that He might be the Saviour of men. We are too apt to forget that, while there are distinctions as ... read more

      A DARK FEAR haunts the minds of many who are coming to Christ; they are afraid that they shall not persevere to the end. I have heard the seeker say: "If I were to cast my soul upon Jesus, yet peradventure I should after all draw back into perdition. I h ... read more
