The Royal Prerogative

THERE is but one God: Jehovah is his name— the “I AM.” That one God will not endure a rival. Why should he? He made all things, and sustains all things. Should a creature that his own hands have made be set up in rivalry with him? If it be a great man like Nebuchadnezzar, if he saith, “Behold this great Babylon which I have builded,” God will send him...

Deuteronomy 34:5

Unbelief Condemned and Faith Commended

Jun 8 THESE two texts will serve to show the different estimate which God has of unbelief and of faith. He says of unbelievers, in my text taken from Deuteronomy, “They are a very froward generation, children in whom is no faith”; as much as to say, that the absence of faith proves them to be froward, presumptuous, wilful, disobedient; a people at cross purposes with God. He says not only that...

Deuteronomy 32:20

Men Without Heart, Sight, or Hearing

Jan 8 FEELING, sight, hearing! What wonderful things these are. If we could exist without them what a wretched condition ours would be. The outer world would be unknown to us if the gates of the senses were shut, and the soul would be famished, like Samaria when it was straitly shut up, and there was no going in nor coming out. Take away from us the power of perception by touch,...

The Prophet Like Unto Moses

Aug 3 MAN, the creature, may well desire intercourse with his Creator. When we are right-minded we cannot bear to be like fatherless children, born into the world by a parent of whom we know nothing whatever. We long to hear our father’s voice. Of old time, or ever sin had entered into the world, the Lord God was on the most intimate terms with his creature man. He communed with Adam...

Underneath

May 12 GOD surrounds his children on all sides: they dwell in him. The passage before us shows that the Lord is above, for we read, “There is none like unto the God of Jeshurun, who rideth upon the heaven in thy help, and in his excellency on the sky.” Assuredly he is around them, for “The eternal God is thy refuge an d he is before them, for “He shall thrust...

Remember!

Mar 31 IN an autobiography of William Jay we read that on one occasion he called to see the famous Mr. John Newton, at Olney, and he observed that over the desk at which he was accustomed to compose his sermons, he had written up in very large letters the following words: “Remember that thou wast a bondman in the land of Egypt, and the Lord thy God redeemed thee.” To my...

Deuteronomy 15:15

Happiness the Privilege and Duty of Christians

Jun 10 THESE are the last recorded words of Moses, and they are significant, for they show us that he found comfort in his dying moments in considering the happiness of the people for whom he had laboured all his life. From the day when, by God’s power, he led them up out of Egypt and brought them into the wilderness they had never ceased to lie near his heart. They had...
