Solemn Pleadings for Revival

Jan 3 THE text is a challenge to the heathen to enter into a debate with the living God. The Lord bids them argue at their best, and let the controversy be calmly carried out to its issues, so as to be decided once for all. He bids them be quiet, reflect, and consider, in order that with renewed strength they may come into the discussion and defend their gods if they...

Isaiah 41:1

A Revival Promise

Jan 11 IN the Christian church at this moment there is a very general desire for a revival of religion. You may go where you may among Christian tian people, and you will find that they are mourning over the present state of things, and saying the one to the other, “When will a greater blessing come? How can we obtain it? When shall we make some impression upon the masses of...

Isaiah 44:3-5

A Call for Revival

Aug 18 I REMEMBER to have heard it said that when a church is in a right condition, all that it wants on the Sabbath day is that the sermon should be like the orders given by a commanding-officer to his troops: it need not be rhetorical or eloquent, it only needs to be clear and plain,— a word of direction for the Lord’s servants. If the soldiers be prepared for action,...

Solomon 7:11-13

The Dawn of Revival Speedily Answered

Feb 10 PRAYER is useful in a thousand ways. It is spiritually what the old physicians sought after naturally, namely a catholicon – a remedy of universal application. There is no case of need, distress, or dilemma, in which prayer will not be found to be a very present help. In the case before us Daniel had been studying the book of Jeremiah, and had learned that God would accomplish seventy weeks...

Daniel 9:23

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

Preparation for Revival

Oct 30 THE believer is agreed with God. The war between the most holy God and his offending creatures is over in the case of bloodwashed sinners; not suspended by a truce, but ended for ever by a peace which passeth all understanding. The believer is fully agreed with God concerning the divine law: he confesses that “the law is holy, and just, and good:” he would not have it altered if...

Amos 3:3

A Revival Sermon

Jan 26 God's promises are not exhausted when they are fulfilled, for when once performed they stand just as good as they did before, and we may await a second accomplishment of them. Man's promises even at the best, are like a cistern which holds but a temporary supply; but God's promises are as a fountain, never emptied, ever overflowing, so that you may draw from hem the whole of that which the...

Amos 9:13

One Antidote for Many Ills

Nov 9      This seems to be the only prayer the Psalmist puts up in this Psalm, as being of itself sufficient for the removal of all the ills over which he mourned. Though he sighs over the strife of neighbors and the ridicule of foes; and lamenting the ill condition of the goodly vine, he deplores its broken hedges, and complains of the wild beasts that waste and devour it, yet...

Psalm 80:19
