NOTES (from the December 1887 Sword and Trowel)
      THE very first thing must be to speak up for our orphans concerning their treat for Christmas. Just before leaving England we had boys and girls together, such a company, and we had a little treat; but we promised that, whether C. H. S. could be with them ... read more

NOTES (from the February 1890 Sword and Trowel)
      A CERTAIN newspaper paragraph very kindly attempts to comfort "Mr. Spurgeon at his worst stage of depression concerning the doubts of the day," by the assurance that religion can never pass away. We can assure our friend that we never thought it could. ... read more

NOTES (from the January 1889 Sword and Trowel)
      THE CHRISTIAN WORLD, in its review of the nondescript Conference on "Evangelical" Preaching, which was held in the month of November, very accurately says of it: "It started from nothing, and it ends nowhere." This may serve as a very fair description ... read more

NOTES (from the July 1888 Sword and Trowel)
      A MAGAZINE is in some danger of death when the editor is so completely prostrate that his brain will not think, and his right hand cannot hold a pen. But it has so happened that our peculiarly heavy affliction came upon us this time in a sort of interval ... read more

NOTES (from the June 1888 Sword and Trowel)
      IT was no small comfort to see the Baptist Union anxious to clear itself, and to make peace. I hoped that in this happy frame of mind it would do something which would mend matters, and therefore in all haste I retracted my prophecy that it would do nothi ... read more

NOTES (from the June 1889 Sword and Trowel)
      OWING to the extreme pressure upon us this month, the notes are necessarily brief. In The Freeman, April 19, in an article referring to the appearance in South Place Chapel of the then President of the Baptist Union, it was said, "these lectures, it sho ... read more

NOTES (from the March 1888 Sword and Trowel)
      THE "Down-Grade" controversy rages, and so it ought to do; for every one who follows it will see how every week the evil which we pointed out is more and more manifest. We have directed special attention to the post-mortem salvation and purgatory heresi ... read more

NOTES (from the May 1888 Sword and Trowel)
      THE Evangelical Alliance has done grand service to the cause of truth by calling together Christians of all denominations to bear united testimonies to the common faith. It was our great privilege, on two memorable occasions, to address vast and enthusias ... read more

NOTES (from the May 1889 Sword and Trowel)
      RIENDS will have noticed the anxiety of the public press to put us into some ecclesiastical position which they can understand. To be the pastor of a church of Christ is enough for us; but it seems to them that we must join some one of the great religious ... read more

NOTES (from the May 1891 Sword and Trowel)
      NUMBERS of friends now write to say how true our words upon the "Down-grade" were years ago. It is our deep regret that it should be so. We spoke not without knowing what we were about. It was not possible for us to give up all our authorities, nor woul ... read more

NOTES (from the November 1888 Sword and Trowel)
      THE FOLLOWING resolution of sympathy with us in our action in the "Down-Grade" controversy came to hand just too late for last month's magazine. We feel sure that our readers will be glad to see it, even now. It was unanimously passed at the annual mee ... read more

NOTES (from the October 1888 Sword and Trowel)
      EVERY DAY affords more and more evidence that while many are true to their Lord, unbelief has sadly eaten into Congregational and Baptist churches. It is not the ministers only who have espoused the modern inventions; but in some instances where the pasto ... read more

NOTES (from the September 1888 Sword and Trowel)
      TO MANY inquiring friends the editor would gratefully say that he is much better, though specially weak. Changing weather, with so much wet and cold, prevent a quick return to usual health. After a severe illness strength is slow in returning. Yet the wor ... read more

Now the hand of the Lord was upon me in the evening
      In the way of judgment this may be the case, and, if so, be it mine to consider the reason of such a visitation, and bear the rod and Him that hath appointed it. I am not the only one who is chastened in the night season; let me cheerfully submit to the a ... read more

Now we have received
      Dear reader, have you received the spirit which is of God, wrought by the Holy Ghost in your soul? The necessity of the work of the Holy Spirit in the heart may be clearly seen from this fact, that all which has been done by God the Father, and by God the ... read more

O blessed hurricane!
      "On My arm, they shall trust." Isaiah 51:5 In seasons of severe trial, the Christian has nothing on earth that he can trust to, and is therefore compelled to cast himself on his God alone. When his vessel is quickly sinking, and no human deliverance ca ... read more

O Lord of hosts, how long wilt thou

O ye sons of men, how long will ye turn my glory into shame?

Oh, the atrocity!
      "O Lord, we are covered with shame—because we have sinned against You!" Daniel 9:8 A deep sense and clear sight of sin—its heinousness, and the punishment which it deserves—should make us lie low before God's throne. As Christians—we have sinned! Alas ... read more

On Him they laid the cross, that He might bear it after Jesus
      We see in Simon's carrying the cross a picture of the work of the Church throughout all generations; she is the cross-bearer after Jesus. Mark then, Christian, Jesus does not suffer so as to exclude your suffering. He bears a cross, not that you may esca ... read more

One a Majority!
      One man of you shall chase a thousand: for the Lord your God, he it is that fighteth for you, as he hath promised you, (Joshua 23:10) Why count heads? One man with God is a majority though there be a thousand on the other side. Sometimes our helpers may ... read more

One King, One Lord

One Look from the Lord!
      And the Lord looked upon him, and said, Go in this thy might, and thou shalt save Israel from the hand of the Midianites: have not I sent thee? (Judges 6:14) What a look was that which the Lord gave to Gideon! He looked him out of his discouragement into ... read more

One wrong step—and down we go!
      "How narrow is the gate and difficult the road that leads to life!" Matthew 7:14 In some sense, the path to heaven is very safe—but in other respects, there is no road so dangerous! It is beset with difficulties. One wrong step—and down we go! And how ... read more

Our Field of Battle
      For the Lord your God is he that goeth with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you. (Deuteronomy 20:4) We have no enemies but the enemies of God. Our fights are not against men but against spiritual wickednesses. We war with the devil an ... read more

Our Lord's Triumphant Ascension

Our Reply to Sundry Critics and Enquirers (September, 1887)
      ACCORDING to the best of our ability we sounded an alarm in Zion concerning the growing evils of the times, and we have received abundant proof that it was none too soon. Letters from all quarters declare that the case of the church at this present is eve ... read more

Our Substance Blessed
      Blessed shall be thy basket and thy store. (Deuteronomy 28:5) Obedience brings a blessing on all the provisions which our industry earns for us. That which comes in and goes out at once, like fruit in the basket which is for immediate use, shall be blest ... read more

Out Of Gratitude
      The man who has had much forgiven will be sure to love much in return. Gratitude to God is a grand mainspring for holy action. Those who do right in order to be rewarded for it are acting selfishly. Selfishness is at the bottom of their character, they ab ... read more

Past Deliverance Begets Faith
      David said moreover, The Lord that delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and out of the paw of the bear, he will deliver me out of the hand of this Philistine. (1 Samuel 17:37) This is not a promise if we consider only the words, but it is truly so as ... read more

Peace With God Means Peace Everywhere
      Being reconciled to God, the believer says, "All things are mine, whether things present or things to come; all are mine, for I am Christ’s and Christ is God’s." Behold the Lord has made us to be in league with the stones of the field, and the beasts ... read more

Perfect in Christ Jesus
      Do you not feel in your own soul that perfection is not in you? Does not every day teach you that? Every tear which trickles from your eye, weeps "imperfection"; every harsh word which proceeds from your lip, mutters "imperfection." You have too frequ ... read more

Perseverance In The Path
      The man who is righteous before God has a way of his own. It is not the way of the flesh, nor the way of the world; it is a way marked out for him by the divine command, in which he walks by faith. It is the King’s highway of holiness, the unclean shall ... read more

Petty wars over abstruse points and unimportant questions
      "Be careful to devote yourself to good works." Titus 3:8 "Avoid foolish questions." Titus 3:9 Our days are few, and are far better spent in devoting ourselves to good works, than in disputing over matters which are, at best, of minor importance. Inc ... read more

Possess, Not Only Profess
      For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance. (Matthew 13:12) When the Lord has given to a man much grace, He will give him more. A little faith is a nest egg; more faith will come to it. But then it must not be seeming fai ... read more

      For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance. (Matthew 13:12) When the Lord has given to a man much grace, He will give him more. A little faith is a nest egg; more faith will come to it. But then it must not be se ... read more

Power to Raise
      The Lord openeth the eyes of the blind: the Lord raiseth them that are bowed down. (Psalm l46:8) Am I bowed down? Then let me urge this word of grace before the Lord. It is His way, His custom, His promise, His delight, to raise up them that are bowed do ... read more

Pray one for another
      As an encouragement cheerfully to offer intercessory prayer, remember that such prayer is the sweetest God ever hears, for the prayer of Christ is of this character. In all the incense which our Great High Priest now puts into the golden censer, there is ... read more

Prayer for Peace

Prayer, Thanksgiving, Praise
      Be careful for nothing; but in everything by payer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6- ... read more

Praying always
      What multitudes of prayers we have put up from the first moment when we learned to pray. Our first prayer was a prayer for ourselves; we asked that God would have mercy upon us, and blot out our sin. He heard us. But when He had blotted out our sins like ... read more

Precious Repentance
      And there shall ye remember your ways, and all your doings, wherein ye have been defiled; and ye shall loathe yourselves in your own sight for all your evils that ye hate committed. (Ezekiel 20:43) When we are accepted of the Lord and are standing in the ... read more

Pride cannot live beneath the cross!
      "He humbled Himself." Philippians 2:8 Jesus is the great teacher of 'humility of heart'. We need daily to learn of Him. See the Master taking a towel and washing His disciples feet! Follower of Christ—will you not humble yourself? See Him as the Servan ... read more

Progressive Theology (April, 1888)
      IN this age of progress, religious opinions move at railway speed. Within the last few weeks many have made an open advance of a very special kind; we say an open advance, for we suspect that secretly they had for a long time harbored the errors which now ... read more

Purity of Heart and Life
      Blessed are the are pure in heart: for they shall see God. (Matthew 5:8) Purity, even purity of heart, is the main thing to be aimed at. We need to be made clean within through the Spirit and the Word, and then we shall be clean without by consecration a ... read more
