Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1854 edition. Excerpt: ... the: kingdom of his Father. Until the fulness of time, therefore, was come for the appearance of this mighty Saviour, any absolute promise of eternal life, even for the best of men, would have been premature. It would have contradicted the very fundamental article of our faith, for it is through the blood of Christ only that we have admission to that heavenly sanctuary; and until that blood was shed, and the mystery which had been kept secret from the beginning of the world had been made known, no man had authority to say, however he might hope and believe, that his sins would be forgiven, and his good deeds be had in remembrance in the sight of God. To us, my beloved brethren, --thanks be to God and our Lord Jesus Christ, ---to us, these animating objects are no longer matters of speculation and of distant hope, but of undoubted promise and firm assurance. It is not merely the dim prospect of a bettercountry which supports us, as it did the patriarchs of old, in our earthly pilgrimage, but the clear and unclouded view of that heavenly inheritance to which Christ is the way, and the only way. He came down from heaven, that He might exalt us to it; He took our nature upon Him, that He might restore its original purity; He suffered, and died, and rose again, that He might reinstate us in that perfection of happiness, the love of our heavenly Father, from which we had by transgression fallen, and which no effortsor merits of ours could again have placed within our reach. To Him, then, who has called us out of darkness to the marvellous light of his Gospel, be all praise, honour, and glory, and thanksgiving in the churches of the saints, world without end. SERMON IV. DISAPPOINTED EXPECTATIONS OF THE FIRST DISOIPLES. LUKE xxiv. 21. ' But.show more
