Causes and Cure of Fainting

Jun 7 Causes and Cure of Fainting   “He giveth power to the faint.” — Isaiah xl. 29.   THE connection in which these words stand is very suggestive. The previous verse says, “Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? There is no searching of his understanding.” He...

Isaiah 40:29

The Divine Call for Missionaries

Apr 22 BRETHREN, the heathen are perishing, and there is but one way of salvation for them, for there is but one name given under heaven among men whereby they must be saved. God in the glorious unity of his divine nature is calling for messengers who shall proclaim to men the way of life. Out of the thick darkness my ear can hear that sound mysterious and divine, “Whom shall I...

Isaiah 6:8

Life for a Look

Mar 22 SINCE this text was blessed to my conversion, many years ago, I have often preached from it; but, on this occasion, I am not going to speak of it as a whole. There is only one thought that I shall endeavour to bring out of it, and I intend to act as the gold-beaters do with the metal upon which they work, that is, beat it out very thin; and,...

Isaiah 45:22

Love's Medicines and Miracles

Jan 21 HEZEKIAH S recovery is a notable encouragement to prayer. If ever there was a case in the world wherein it seemed impassible that prayer could be of any avail, it was that of Hezekiah. It was perceivable by everybody around him that he was sick unto death. Why then think of prayer? The case was fatal. Would it not expose prayer to derision if such a matter were taken before...

Isaiah 38:17

An Infallible Sign of Revival

Nov 12 IN the eternal past the Lord alone was exalted. When he dwelt alone or ever the earth was, and when he commenced the mighty works of his creation, and the universe sprang into being at the fiat of his unhindered will, he alone was exalted. He made multitudes of creatures; perhaps we have no idea how many of them there were, and in what varied forms intelligent beings were created;...

Isaiah 2:11

Fat Things, Full of Marrow

Jul 23 THIS precious passage is the property of all true believers in the Lord Jesus Christ. We might not have ventured to say this if it were not for the last verse of the chapter, which assures us that it is so. “This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.” The matchless promises and assurances of this chapter do not...

Isaiah 54:7

A Dire Disease Strangely Cured

May 28 IT is well for the preacher, every now and then, to go back to the very beginning, and once again traverse the whole ground of the gospel, just as the teacher does, in the school, when, after his pupils have advanced to some of the higher branches of study, he deems it desirable to make sure that they are well grounded in the very elements of knowledge, for he knows...

Isaiah 53:5

Restless! Peaceless!

May 21 AMONG the greatest privileges of the believer in Christ are those choice blessings, rest, and peace. Believing in Christ Jesus unto eternal life, he knows that his sin is pardoned, that he is a child of God, that omnipotence will preserve him even to the end, and that he will, by-and-by, be with Christ where he is, not only to behold, but also to share his glory for ever and...

Isaiah 57:20-21

Trials Expected and Conquered

Mar 12 Good Cheer for the Needy   “When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee; when thou walkest through the tire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba...

Isaiah 43:2, 3

The Blind Befriended

Mar 9 THIS promise is not made to every blind man, or to all sorts of blind people, for there are some blind people whom God does not lead. There is only a peculiar sort of blind people to whom this promise is given, that he will guide them and not forsake them. If you go outside the Tabernacle, take the first turning on the left, and walk down what is called...
