Test All Things

Monthly Archives: July 2007

The middle and latter end of the last century was a remarkable period. A chain of ministers, commencing with Whitefield, and embracing in its links Toplady, Berridge, Newton, Romaine, Huntington, and Hawker, extends itself down to our degenerate days. However differing in gifts, all these men were evidently taught by the same Spirit, and preached the same gospel. Toplady, like a lamp fed with spirit, flamed forth, blazed, and died, from shortness… Read More

For a sound, consistent, scriptural exposition of the word of God, no commentary, we believe, in any language can be compared with Dr. Gill’s. There may be commentaries on individual books of Scripture, which may surpass Dr. Gill’s in depth of research and fullness of exposition: and the great work from which Poole compiled his Synopsis may be more suitable to scholars and divines, as bringing together into one focus all the… Read More

We are requested by a correspondent to give our views on Romans 7: 2-3. “For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband. So then, if while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress; but if her husband… Read More

The following article by A.W. Pink was taken from his book “The Holy Spirit” chapter 11. ——————————————————————————– We shall now confine ourselves to the initial operation of the Spirit within the elect of God. Different writers have employed the term “regeneration” with varying latitude: some restricting it unto a single act, others including the whole process by which one becomes a conscious child of God. This has hindered close accuracy of thought,… Read More

This question is one which is asked much more frequently in modern times since more Pastors are taking a hands off approach to Church correction. You are more likely to hear things like, ‘it’s a matter of Christian liberty, so use your individual conscience.’ In light of this attitude, it is possible that many Christians who smoke may have not even considered this an issue, or not even realized that it could… Read More

Preached at North Street Chapel, Stamford, on June 15, 1858, by J. C. Philpot “But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest… Read More

Preached at North Street Chapel, Stamford, on Feb. 17, 1861, by J. C. Philpot “But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raiseth the dead: Who delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver: in whom we trust that he will yet deliver us.” (2 Corinthians 1:9-10) We may admire Paul’s grace, stand amazed at the depth and… Read More

Preached at North Street Chapel, Stamford, on January 31, 1864, by J. C. Philpot “Behold, what manner of love the Father has bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God– therefore the world knows us not, because it knew him not.” (1 John 3:1) I think we may see four distinguishing features in our text– First, the wondrous love of God– “Behold, what manner of love the Father… Read More

Preached at North Street Chapel, Stamford, on January 20, 1861, by J. C. Philpot Bride: “Tell me, O you whom my soul loves, where you feed, where you make your flock to rest at noon– for why should I be as one that turns aside by the flocks of your companions?” Bridegroom: “If you do not know, O you fairest among women, go your way forth by the footsteps of the flock,… Read More

“While brother Joseph was referring to the provinces of God, I was led to reflect that there is no act, no principle, no power belonging to the Deity that is purely philosophical. The birth of the Saviour was as natural as are the births of our children; it was the result of natural action. He partook of flesh and blood – was begotten of his Father, as we were of our fathers.”… Read More

For God so Loved the World John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son,that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” This verse is probably the best known verse in the Bible. It may also be the most misunderstood. A False interpretation of this verse goes like this: God sent His Son Jesus into the world to provide salvation for all… Read More

We intimated on the wrapper of our last October Number that it was in our mind to take up the above subject, as involving considerations hidden from the eyes of men of one idea, who only know what they have been taught by the precept of men, and as having also an important bearing on many points of divine truth. This pledge, therefore, we shall now attempt to redeem. Were it a… Read More

Preached at North Street Chapel, Stamford, on September 23, 1866, by J. C. Philpot “Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and you shall be clean– from all your filthiness, and from all your idols will I cleanse you. A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you; and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will… Read More

“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12) These were the words spoken by the apostle Peter before the Jewish Council. The Jewish Council had called Peter to answer the question, by whose power or authority he had healed a lame man at the temple. They had also forbidden him ever to speak in the… Read More

Preached on Thursday Evening, July 7th, 1842, at Zoar Chapel, London, by J. C. Philpot “Draw me; we will run after You.” (Solomon’s Song 1:4) If we look at the Song of Solomon we shall see in it different states and stages of divine experience. I believe we would be wrong if we considered that the Bride– who speaks in my text– was in one uniform state or stage of experience all… Read More

Preached at Providence Chapel, London, on July 21, 1850, by J. C. Philpot “Exercise yourself unto godliness. For bodily exercise profits little—but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.” (1 Timothy 4:7-8) Man has been called, and perhaps with some truth, a religious animal. Religion of some kind, at any rate, seems almost indispensable to his very existence;… Read More

Preached at Gower Street Chapel, London, on June 8, 1862, by J. C. Philpot “What shall we then say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?” (Romans 8:31-32) In this glorious and noble chapter (Romans 8), the apostle, as a… Read More

The Numbers in the Scriptures! (Do they Carry any Spiritual Significance?) by Tony Warren There are many Christians who think that when God put numbers in the Bible there was no spiritual significance to it, and neither should we apply any meaning to it other than the number itself. But even if we were to look at this issue superficially, we can readily see that there is some method and certain numerical… Read More

“For there is no respect of persons with God.” Romans 2:11 Some object from hence, though without any reason, to the doctrine of particular election of certain persons to everlasting salvation. This passage respects matters of strict justice, and is a forensic expression relating to courts of judicature, where persons presiding are to have no regard to the faces of men, but do that which is strictly just between man and man;… Read More

To impute is to charge a thing upon a person whether guilty or not, as the circumstances hereafter are proved, or not. Thus Shimei intreated David, that he would not “impute iniquity to him” for some former transaction. {2 Samuel 19:19} And the apostle Paul {Romans 4:8} declares them blessed to whom the Lord “will not impute sin.” This is the general sense of imputation. But in the case of the imputed… Read More

It is a peculiar happiness to observe, that in matters of spiritual concern, the philosopher and ploughman (if truly regenerate) have the same feelings, speak the same language; they all eat of the same spiritual meat, and drink of the same spiritual rock that follows them, and that rock is Christ. Hence that similitude of experience, or to speak figuratively, that strong and striking family likeness which obtains among the converted people… Read More

The theme occupying my mind for some days past is that of mercy. Mercy! This we find in every part of Divine inspiration. We love to see it in the Book we delight to feel it in our hearts, with the firm persuasion that it is experienced there wholly of the Father’s will and good pleasure, the Saviour’s grace and mediation, and by the revelation of these to our hearts by the… Read More

O the everlasting salvation that we have in Jesus Christ! He is the same, and will be the same for ever and ever! and, the righteousness He has wrought out for us is like Himself; it is an everlasting righteousness. It covered our first parents. It is true, they sewed fig leaves together to cover themselves, but God rejected them, as He will reject our self-righteousness, and clothed them with the skins… Read More

Now, for a moment, observe, that this precious Christ of ours–as dear old Hawker says, “even our Christ, even our Jesus”–was as perfect and sinless in His manhood as He was in His Godhead. I suppose no one will impute sinfulness, or a capability of sinning, to His Godhead; and it was only imputed to His manhood. “That holy thing,” it was declared to the Virgin, “that holy thing which shall be… Read More

“So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Corinthians 1:7) The apostle Paul was a remarkable man. In whatever part of his life we consider him, we find him thorough. He was a man with a mind of his own, and possessed a will, persevering and persistent. As a natural man he could learn to make tents. As a religious man and… Read More

“That no flesh should glory in His presence.” 1 Corinthians 1:29 Man’s religion is to build up the creature. God’s religion is to throw the creature down in the dust of self-abasement, and to glorify Christ. By J.C. Philpot

But when he Uzziah was strong, his heart was lifted up to his destruction: for he transgressed against the LORD his God, and went into the temple of the LORD to burn incense upon the altar of incense. 2 Chronicles 26:16 The seriousness of King Uzziah’s sin is due to the fact that the priestly office he dared to fulfill was a foreshadowing of Christ in His priestly office as the one… Read More

In this article I want to take a good look at the Adversary of the church. Of course you know who our Adversary is. It is the Devil, also called Satan. But let us first look at: The Sovereignty of God (Proverbs 25:2) Did God create Satan? Well, if God did not create Satan, then who did? Could there have been another force at work outside of God, creating Satan and all… Read More

  Righteous In Christ Alone! How shall I be right with God? If that is not the question that lies in the pit of your heart, thereby you know the folly of your own sinful flesh. You are not living in reality. Your heart is deceived. You refuse to reckon with reality – God and sin. To a believer in Christ Jesus, one in whom the grace of God has worked, to… Read More

“But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets.” (Acts 24:14) ——————– There is only one message that agrees and fully satisfies all that is written in the Law and the prophets. That message and that message alone, reveals Almighty God to be just and the… Read More

This is an audio sermon titled “Blessed Ears and Eyes” The scripture text is from Matthew 13:16 and the audio is 44 minutes long.

Preached at Gower Street Chapel, London, on June 24, 1866, by J. C. Philpot “And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling. And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power– that your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.” (1 Corinthians 2:3-5) What… Read More

Preached at Providence Chapel, Oakham, on July 4, 1869, by J. C. Philpot ———— “When the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem from the midst thereof by the spirit of judgment and by the spirit of burning. And the Lord will create upon every dwelling-place of Mount Zion, and upon her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day,… Read More

Preached at Zoar Chapel, London, on Thursday Evening, July 27, 1843, by J. C. Philpot “My soul follows hard after you; your right hand upholds me.” (Psalm 63:8) Did the question ever arise in your mind, how David composed the Psalms? Of course, the answer would be, “He composed them by divine inspiration.” But that is not my meaning. We will put the question in another form. Do you suppose that David… Read More

Preached at North Street chapel, Stamford, on August 18, 1861, by J. C. Philpot “Set up waymarks, make high heaps: set your heart toward the highway, even the way which you went: turn again, O virgin of Israel, turn again to these your cities. How long will you go about, O you backsliding daughter? for the Lord has created a new thing in the earth, A woman shall compass a man.” (Jeremiah… Read More

Preached at Zoar Chapel, London, on Thursday Evening, August 3, 1843, by J. C. Philpot “For what is the hope of the hypocrite, though he has gained, when God takes away his soul? Will God hear his prayer when trouble comes upon him? Will he delight himself in the Almighty? Will he always call upon God?” (Job 27:8-10) What was the main subject of controversy between Job and his three friends? It… Read More

Preached at Providence Chapel, London, on July 18th, 1847, by J. C. Philpot And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” when you turn to the right hand, and when you turn to the left. (Isaiah 30:21) It is an infinite mercy for the church of God that the religion of Jesus Christ is not a religion of uncertainties. The way to heaven… Read More

Preached at Keppel Street Chapel, London, on Thursday Evening, August 21, 1845, by J. C. Philpot “That you be not slothful, but followers of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.” Hebrews 6:12 I shall endeavor to open, as far as the Lord shall enable me, the mind and meaning of the Spirit under two leading heads. I shall not dwell much upon the fist clause of the text, but… Read More

Preached at Trinity Chapel, Southwark, on Thursday Evening, August 1, 1850, by J. C. Philpot “These all wait upon you; that you may give them their food in due season. When you give it to them they gather—you open your hand, they are filled with good. You hide your face, they are troubled—you take away their breath, they die, and return to their dust. You send forth your spirit, they are created—and… Read More

Preached at North Street Chapel, Stamford, on Nov. 11, 1860, by J. C. Philpot “As you have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him—rooted and built up in him, and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.” (Colossians 2:6-7) In endeavoring, with God’s help and blessing, to lay open before you these words of inspired truth, I shall, First, show what it is… Read More

Preached at Providence Chapel, London, on July 25, 1847, by J. C. Philpot “Let Israel hope in the Lord, for with the Lord there is mercy, and with him is plenteous redemption. And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.” (Psalm 130:7-8) Three points seem to strike my mind as most prominent in the words before us. First, a divine exhortation—”Let Israel hope in the Lord.” Secondly, a spiritual reason—”For with… Read More

Preached at Gower Street Chapel, London, on July 1, 1866, by J. C. Philpot “And you shall remember all the way which the Lord your God led you these forty years in the wilderness, to humble you, and to prove you, to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep his commandments, or not. And he humbled you, and allowed you to hunger, and fed you with manna, which you… Read More

Preached at North Street Chapel, Stamford, on December 21, 1862, by J. C. Philpot “You have showed your people hard things—you have made us to drink the wine of astonishment. You have given a banner to those who fear you, that it may be displayed because of the truth.” (Psalm 60:3-4) There was one feature in our blessed Lord’s suffering to which I wish to call attention, as it is in some… Read More

Preached on Tuesday Evening, August 3rd, 1852, at Eden Street Chapel, London, by J. C. Philpot “And now, Lord, what do I wait for? My hope is in You. Deliver me from all my transgressions; make me not the reproach of the foolish.” (Psalm 39:7-8) This psalm was written under peculiar feelings, and while the Psalmist was passing through a peculiar experience. This indeed is the case with well near every psalm,… Read More

Preached on Tuesday Evening, October 31st, 1854, at Oakham, by J. C. Philpot “Herein is My Father glorified, that you bear much fruit; so shall you be My disciples.” (John 15:8) Why does the farmer, at this season of the year, cast into the bosom of the earth so much valuable corn? That at harvest time he may reap a crop. Why does the gardener now transplant fruit trees, and put them… Read More

Preached at Providence Chapel, London, on Tuesday Evening, July 6, 1847, by J. C. Philpot “Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abides in the vine; no more can you, except you abide in me.” (John 15:4) Have you ever considered the experience of the disciples when their Lord and Master was sojourning here below? To my mind, there is something very… Read More

Preached at North Street Chapel, Stamford, on October 26, 1862, by J. C. Philpot “For every one shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt. Salt is good—but if the salt has lost his saltiness, with what will you season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another.” Mark 9:49-50) Does not this text strike you as having something strange and mysterious in it?… Read More

In this article we will consider the first parable in Luke Chapter 15. This is the Parable of the Lost Sheep. Even though the Lord Jesus is speaking about sheep, He actually has in view people; and particularly He has in view two groups of people: The Publicans & Sinners, and the Pharisees & Scribes. Now before we interpret this parable we must first ask ourselves: “What did God say?” Luke 15:1… Read More

In the beginning of Romans 9 the Apostle Paul vents his continual sorrow for his fellow countrymen who remain in unbelief. But then he concludes this lament by stating what the Old Testament already states by implication: Romans 9:6 Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel: In other words, he says: God’s promises are not failing. God’s promises… Read More

Thus “he was brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is silent, so he opened not his mouth.” (Isaiah 53:7). The whole of his obedient and suffering life was a voluntary offering up of himself to do and suffer the will of God; but it is in its last acts, as offering himself in sacrifice, that we see it especially manifested. In this spirit, as… Read More

Preached at Trinity Chapel, Alfred Street, Leicester, On LORD’S Day Evening, July 6th, 1845 – by John Warburton ————————————————- “For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory for ever and ever. Amen.” (Matthew 6:13) WE read these words as a text in the morning, and promised, by the help of God, to make a few remarks. First to show that the kingdom is his, the power is his, and… Read More

“Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us, and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.” (1 John 4:10) THIS was the first word that touched my poor, prayerless, hard heart after some days of illness. It pulled prayer through all my death and bondage, and I learnt that if the Holy Ghost only gives a wretch-no matter where he is, how distant, cold,… Read More

Preached at Trinity Chapel, Alfred Street, Leicester, on Lord’s Day evening, July 6th, 1845 – By John Warburton. ————————————– My Friends. It is generally the case when places are opened for divine worship to take a text that is considered to be adapted to the circumstances of that time and place; but I can assure you, my friends, my soul has been with God to direct me, for I cannot pick and… Read More

The Exaltation of Christ, and the Glory which followed upon it, is a pregnant Proof of this Truth. When he had completed the Work of our Redemption on Earth, he ascended to Heaven, and took Possession of that Glory which was his due. And he is to be considered as our Fore-runner in his Entrance into the World above, and as the public Head and Representative of all those for whom he… Read More

Occult Healing Builds World’s Largest Church: The Influence Of Paul Yonggi Cho In the course of reading a veritable pile of recent books on a range of charismatic practices including house groups, prophesying and healing, this writer has noticed that many of the advocates of these things have been powerfully impressed by the work of Paul Yonggi Cho, pastor of the largest church in the world, the Full Gospel Central Church in… Read More

Naked and Unashamed: John Wesley Exposes Himself “It has also been suggested, that ‘Mr. Wesley is a very laborious man;’ not more laborious, I presume, than a certain active being, who is said to go to and fro in the earth, and walk up and down in it: nor yet more laborious, I should imagine, than certain ancient Sectarians, concerning whom it was long ago said, ‘Woe unto you Scribes, Pharisees, hypocrites;… Read More

Today I would like us to focus on “Thanksgiving”. Do you realize that we are commanded by God to give thanks every day, all the time, for everything? To Whom Do We Give Thanks? (Psalm 92:1-15) Let us read Psalm 92, and see “What God Has Done For Me”. Psalm 92:1 It is (a) good (thing) to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High:… Read More

A study of Mark 16:16 What Baptism? In Mark chapter 16 – The Lord Jesus has risen from the grave, and before He left them to go to heaven He gave them the great commission to evangelize the world. This is usually read from the last chapter in Matthew, but today I wanted to read this great commission from the Gospel according to Mark, because I want to address the subject of… Read More

Preached at Westwood, New Jersey, U.S.A. July 28th, 1895 By Thomas Bradbury ———————————————– “So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Corinthians 1:7) The apostle Paul was a remarkable man. In whatever part of his life we consider him, we find him thorough. He was a man with a mind of his own, and possessed a will, persevering and persistent. As a… Read More

In Luke chapter 23 the Lord Jesus is standing before Pilate. We see here that the Roman governor Pontius Pilate was like wax in the hands of the leaders of the Jews, and he did to Jesus whatever they desired. Luke 23: Luke 23:24 And Pilate gave sentence that it should be as they required. Luke 23:25 And he released unto them him that for sedition and murder was cast into prison,… Read More

Is It God’s Will that All Men Be Saved? 1 Timothy 2:4 God our Savior, who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. “Who will have all men to be saved” Do we understand this? The title of this article is: “Is It God’s Will that All Men Be saved?” Is that really so? Clearly we can see that there are many people… Read More

Preached at the opening of Rehoboth Chapel, Lower Ford Street, Coventry, 1857 – By John Kershaw. “And thou shalt call his name Jesus; for he shall save his people from their sins.” (Matthew 1:21) _________________________________________ We have an account just before the text of the circumstances in which Joseph found Mary his espoused wife. Not willing to make an example of her, he would have put her away privily. He was a… Read More

Preached at Eden Street Chapel, London on Lord’s day, April 21st, 1844 – By John Warburton. “The righteous shall be glad in the LORD, and shall trust in Him; and all the upright in heart shall glory.” (Psalm 64:10) I. In what way is a man made righteous before God? I answer; he is not made so by any good works proceeding from himself, by his prayers, duties, and obedience, or by… Read More

Preached at Gower Street Chapel, London on Lord’s day evening, April 8th, 1855 – By John Warburton. “O continue thy lovingkindness unto them that know thee.” (Psalm 36:10) I. Here we see the lovingkindness of God the Father in the choice of His people, that it originated in His sovereign, discriminating love, and that this love was so strong and enduring that it is from everlasting to everlasting upon those on whom… Read More

Preached at Founder’s Hall Chapel, Lothbury, London on Tuesday evening, April 9th, 1844 – by John Warburton. “And the LORD said unto Moses, Is the LORD’S hand waxed short? Thou shalt see now whether my word shall come to pass unto thee or not.” (Numbers 11:23) In this chapter we find Moses the servant of God, sorely oppressed with grief through the rebelliousness of the children of Israel. It appears they had… Read More

Preached in London on Lord’s day morning and evening, December 25th, 1842 – By John Warburton. —————————— “He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?” (Romans 8:32) —————————— What a blessed and precious truth this is for you who can do nothing, think nothing, desire nothing, and have nothing that is good except what… Read More

“My God! My God! why hast Thou forsaken Me?” (Matthew 27:46) The Evangelist adds, that Jesus cried again, with a loud voice. But why with a loud voice? To show that He did not die by compulsion but voluntarily. When a person is in his last moments, his speech commonly fails him; but Christ, when He was expiring, spoke with a clear, audible voice, which was a proof, that, though He had… Read More

In John 9:35 we have here the story of a beggar who was blind from birth. Jesus made clay, put the clay on the man’s eyes, and Jesus said to him: “Go wash in the Pool of Siloam”. Well, this beggar had nothing to lose, so he went, he washed his face in the Pool of Siloam and suddenly he could see clearly. In this miraculous healing the Lord Jesus Christ shows… Read More

The Father proposed to Christ to take the care and charge of the elect. Those who were the objects of God’s special Love and free choice, He gave into Christ’s Hands. Hence He says unto the Father, Thine they were, and thou gavest them Me (John 17:6). With what view this was done, it is easy to collect from these words of our Lord; I came down from Heaven, not to do… Read More

“And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.” (Romans 5:11) This chapter contains eternal principles. It vindicates God. It shows sin to be what it is in God’s sight, exceeding sinful; it makes the atonement the act of God. The putting away of sin was a miracle of the grace and love of God. Sin has separated… Read More

In John 17 we read what is known as the High Priestly Prayer of the Lord Jesus Christ. Why is it called the High Priestly Prayer? It is because this is the prayer that the Lord Jesus prayed to intercede for His people just before He went to the Garden of Gethsemane to endure the Atonement for their sins. We can see the shadow of this event in the Old Testament ceremonial… Read More
