Winnowing-Time

Jan 17 IT is remarkable that God has traced so much of the misery of the children of Israel in the period of their degradation to the unfaithfulness of those governors, priests, and prophets, who bare rule over them. The crying evil of a nation’s crimes lay at the door of these foolish shepherds. At first it would seem that the main stress of calamity rested on the common people, and the...

Jeremiah 23:28

The Golden Key of Prayer

Mar 12 SOME of the most learned works in the world smell of the midnight oil; but the most spiritual, and most comforting books and sayings of men usually have a savour about them of prison-damp. I might quote many instances: John Bunyan’s Pilgrim may suffice instead of a hundred others; and this good text of ours, all mouldy and chill with the prison in which Jeremiah lay, hath nevertheless a brightness...

Jeremiah 33:3

A Discourse for a Revival Season

Jan 8 THESE words, as they stand in the book of Jeremiah, were probably meant to-set forth the sin of Israel. The prophet's heart is very fall of sadness; he can hear the shrieks and cries of the people in the streets of Jerusalem. They are moaning for sorrow, because of the oppression of the Chaldeans—the nation that dwelt afar off; and in the midst of their bitterness and woe, they remember...

Jeremiah 8:19-20

Creation- An Argument for Faith

Jul 27      AT the very time when the Chaldeans had cast up mounds round about the city of Jerusalem, and when the sword and famine and pestilence had desolated the whole land, Jeremiah, while in prison, was commanded by his God to purchase a field of Hanameel, his uncle’s son at Anathoth, to subscribe the evidence of purchase by the usual witnesses, to seal the deed of transfer according to...

Jeremiah 32:17

Jehovah Tsidkenu-The Lord Our Righteousness

Jun 2 Man by the fall sustained an infinite loss in the matter of righteousness. He suffered the loss of a righteous nature, and then a two-fold loss of legal righteousness in the sight of God. Man sinned; he was therefore no longer innocent of transgression. Man did not keep the command; he therefore was guilty of the sin of omission. In that which he committed, and in that which he omitted, his original character for uprightness...

Jeremiah 23:6

Words of Expostulation

Jan 21 The Jews had been chosen by God to be a special people separated to himself for ever. By sundry miracles, by divers mercies, by strange deliverances, he had proved himself to be to them a God worthy of their trust. Yet, strange to say – and yet not strange when we know that they were fallen men like ourselves – the Jews were constantly desirous to mix with the nations....

Jeremiah 2:18

The Wailing of Risca

Dec 9 The sorrow of the weeping prophet was exceeding heavy when he uttered these words of bitter lamentation. A great and present burden from the Lord is weighing so heavily upon our hearts this morning, that we cannot spare so much as a moment for sympathy with the griefs of past ages. God has visited our land, and his strokes have been exceeding hard. We are constrained to take up a wailing,...

Jeremiah 4:20

A Blast of the Trumpet Against False Peace

Feb 26      Ministers are fearfully guilty if they intentionally build up men in a false peace. I cannot imagine any man more greatly guilty of blood than he who plays jackal to the lion of hell, by pandering to the depraved tastes of vain, rebellious man. The physician who should pamper a man in his disease, who should feed his cancer, or inject continual poison into the system, while at the...

Jeremiah 6:14

God's Barriers Against Man's Sin

Nov 16 The majesty of God, as displayed in creation and providence, ought to stir up our hearts in adoring wonder and melt them down in willing obedience to his commands. The Almighty power of Jehovah, so clearly manifest in the works if his hands, should constrain us, his creatures, to fear his name and prostrate ourselves in humble reverence before his throne. When we know that the sea, however tempestuous, is entirely...

Jeremiah 5:22-23

"What I Have Done?"

Dec 27      PERHAPS NO FIGURE represents God in a more gracious light than those figures of speech, which represent him as stooping from his throne, and as coming down from heaven to attend to the wants and to behold the woes of mankind. We must have love for that God, who, when Sodom and Gomorrah were reeking with iniquity, would not destroy those cities, although he knew their guilt and...
