Resources by Judgment

The Final Separation

JESUS Christ, the man of Nazareth, who is also the Son of God, was crucified, dead, and buried, and the third day he rose again from the dead. After he had showed himself to his disciples for forty days — sometimes to one alone, at other times to two or three together, and on one occasion to above five hundred brethren at once — he ascended into heaven. From the...

Matthew 25:32

Coming Judgement of the Secrets of Man

Jul 12 IT is impossible for any of us to tell what it cost the apostle Paul to write the first chapter of the epistle to the Romans. It is a shame even to speak of the things which are done of the vicious in secret places; but Paul felt that it was necessary to break through his shame, and to speak out concerning the hideous vices of the heathen. He has...

John 3:16

The Great Assize

Aug 25 THIS morning we preached concerning the resurrection of the dead, and it seems consistent with order to carry forward our thoughts this evening, to that which follows immediately after the resurrection, namely: the general judgment; for the dead rise on purpose that they may be judged in their bodies. The Resurrection is the immediate prelude to the Judgment. There is no need that I try to prove to you from...

2 Corinthians 5:10

Future Punishment a Fearful Thing

Mar 25 You will most cheerfully bear me witness that my most frequent subjects are the mercy and abundant lovingkindness of our God in Jesus Christ-; and that it is my favourite employment to invite the very chief of sinners to come to Jesus Christ, with the assurance that he will cast out none who come unto him, but will assuredly give unto them eternal life. It is not to my honour...

Hebrews 10:31

Judgment Threatening but Mercy Sparing

Sep 17 THE comparison of a man to a tree, and of human works to fruit, is exceedingly common in Scripture, because it is most suggestive, natural, and appropriate. As fruit is the production of the tree’s life, and the end for which the tree exists, so obedience to the divine will, and holiness unto the Lord, should be the product of man’s life, and for it he was at first created....

Luke 13:7,8

The Queen of the South, or the Earnest Enquirer

Oct 4 OUR Saviour, in this chapter, administered a rebuke to two sorts of people. He reproved those who hear the gospel, but who are not brought to humiliation and repentance; he rebuked them by the example of the Ninevites, who, having but one short and terrible warning from the prophet Jonah, clothed themselves in sackcloth, turned unto God in penitence, and so preserved their city. He then rebukes another class—those who...

Matthew 12:42

The Bridgeless Gulf

Jul 5 FOR the last few months I have been led to blow the silver trumpet, sounding forth the love and mercy of our God in Christ. Many times in your hearing I have preached a full Christ for empty sinners, and have set forth the freeness and graciousness of the divine proclamation which in the gospel is made to the chief of sinners. I have not, concerning that point, shunned to...

Luke 16:26

The Chaff Driven Away

Oct 23      And who are the ungodly? Are they open and wilful sinners—men who take God's name in vain, and curse, and blaspheme—men who break the laws of man, the laws of the state—men who are scarcely to be trusted with liberty? Certainly these are included, but these are not mainly intended. While such men come under the category of "sinners" and "scorners," there is another class expressly aimed at...

Psalm 1:4

The Scales of Judgment

Jun 12      There is a weighing time for kings and emperors, and all the monarchs of earth, albeit some of them have exalted themselves to a position in which they appear to be irresponsible to man. Though they escape the scales on earth, they must surely be tried at the bar of God. For nations there is a weighing time. National sins demand national punishments. The whole history of God's...
