Test All Things

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

Thomas Hardy, in one of his excellent letters, makes the following remark, “The best Christians I meet with are generally Huntingtonians.” This witness is true. There is, or as we must now say there was, for so few of them are left, a depth and clearness of experience, a savor and a sweetness, a rich, tender, feeling, unctuous utterance, a discrimination between law and gospel, letter and spirit, form and power, a… Read More

When the Lord called to Himself the soul of our dear friend, William Gadsby, with truth it might be said, “There is a great man fallen this day in Israel” (2 Sam. 3:38). We believe we are but speaking in full unison with the feelings and sentiments of the living family of God in this country when we say that, taking him all in all, we have lost in Mr. Gadsby the… Read More

Who that knows anything of the wondrous doings and dealings of the Lord in providence and grace can say that miracles have ceased? It is true that the croaking raven no longer brings bread and flesh, morning and evening to an Elijah by the brook Cherith; nor does the palsied leave his bed, or the dead come out of his grave, as in the days when Jesus walked here below. But wonders… Read More

“And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested.” (1 Chronicles 4:10) Here, in the prayer of Jabez, should the Lord the Spirit lead us into the sweet and rich experience… Read More

Preached at Zoar Chapel, London, on July 30, 1843, by J. C. Philpot “For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.” (Galatians 5:17) If I loved, or courted popularity, I might feel some pleasure in seeing so crowded an assembly this evening. But, on the contrary, it rather… Read More

Preached at Zoar Chapel, London, on Thursday Evening, July 18, 1844, by J. C. Philpot “Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.” (Romans 6:17) The Holy Spirit foresaw the abuse which the depraved heart of man would make of the doctrines of grace. He foresaw that nature would argue, that because the elect are saved by… Read More

Preached at North Street Chapel, Stamford, on October 25, 1863, by J. C. Philpot “Joseph is a fruitful bough, even a fruitful bough by a well; whose branches run over the wall: The archers have sorely grieved him, and shot at him, and hated him: But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob; (from thence is… Read More

Preached at Eden Street Chapel, Hampstead Road, London, on Lord’s Day Evening, August 17, 1845, by Joseph Philpot “But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.” (1st Corinthians 1:30-31) These words, or rather a portion of them, came to my mind this morning… Read More

Preached at Providence Chapel, Cranbrook, on Wednesday evening, August 19, 1846, by Joseph Philpot “In that time shall the present be brought unto the LORD of hosts of a people scattered and peeled, and from a people terrible from their beginning hitherto; a nation meted out and trodden under foot, whose land the rivers have spoiled, to the place of the name of the LORD of hosts, the mount Zion.” (Isaiah 18:7)… Read More

Preached at Providence Chapel, London, on Tuesday, July 29, 1851, by J. C. Philpot “O our God, wilt thou not judge them? for we have no might against this great company that cometh against us; neither know we what to do: but our eyes are upon thee.” (2 Chronicles 20:12) It is one thing to read the Bible as a history, and another to read it as a mystery. The mere narration… Read More

“Who is among you that feareth the LORD, that obeyeth the voice of his servant, that walketh in darkness, and hath no light? let him trust in the name of the LORD, and stay upon his God. Behold, all ye that kindle a fire, that compass yourselves about with sparks: walk in the light of your fire, and in the sparks that ye have kindled. This shall ye have of mine hand;… Read More

When most religious people think about Christmas, their thoughts usually consist of those things traditionally associated with the holiday, i.e., the baby Jesus in a manger, the shepherds abiding in the field, and the wise men with their gifts for the Christ child. Now these things are historical truths and they are to be believed on as the Word of God. The problem is most people think by this historical story God… Read More

Preached at Zoar Chapel, London, on July 30, 1843, by J. C. Philpot “But, beloved, we are persuaded better things of you, and things that accompany salvation, though we thus speak.” (Hebrews 6:9) It appears, from several passages in this Epistle, that the Hebrews, to whom it was written, were suffering under severe persecutions; and not being firmly established in the faith, they manifested under the pressure of these heavy trials a… Read More

A Sermon Preached on Tuesday Evening, August 1, 1843, by J. C. Philpot, at Jewry Street Chapel, Aldgate, on behalf of the Aged Pilgrims’ Friend Society “Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:31-32) There is one feature in the Lord’s ministry, when… Read More

Preached at Trinity Street Chapel, London, on Tuesday Evening, July 30, 1844, by J. C. Philpot “..having nothing, and yet possessing all things. “ (2 Corinthians 6:10) In the Gospel of Jesus Christ there are many ‘apparent contradictions’. I use the word apparent, for there are no real contradictions. What at first sight appears paradoxical and inconsistent is found, when we see it in the Spirit’s light, to be perfectly consistent and… Read More

Preached at Providence Chapel, London, on Tuesday Evening, July 13, 1847, by J. C. Philpot “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” (John 15:33) There is one feature in the discourses of the Lord with his sorrowing disciples (as recorded John 14-16) which has struck my mind; and… Read More

Preached at Allington, September 19, 1841, by J. C Philpot. “Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.” (Hosea 6:3) Before I enter into the spiritual meaning of these words it will be necessary to see the connection of the passage with… Read More

A sermon preached on June 20, 1841, by J. C. Philpot, at Zoar Chapel, London. “We see not our signs.” (Psalm 74:9) This Psalm, from which the text is taken, is clearly not one of those that were written by the pen of David. We gather this, not merely from the title of the Psalm, where it is called “Maschil” which means “giving instruction” “of Asaph,” but also from the strongest internal… Read More

Preached at Providence Chapel, Oakham, on Tuesday Evening, May 12, 1846, by J. C. Philpot. “The breaker is come up before them: they have broken up, and have passed through the gate, and are gone out by it: and their king shall pass before them, and the LORD on the head of them.” (Micah 2:13) I would not do justice to my conviction of the meaning of the Old Testament Scriptures if… Read More

Preached on August 10th, 1856, at Gower Street Chapel, London, by J. C. Philpot “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of… Read More

Preached at North Street Chapel, Stamford, on Thursday Evening, October 28, 1858, by J. C. Philpot “And it shall come to pass in that day, that the great trumpet shall be blown, and they shall come which were ready to perish in the land of Assyria, and the outcasts in the land of Egypt, and shall worship the LORD in the holy mount at Jerusalem.” (Isaiah 27:13) Ever since the fall, man… Read More

Preached at Eden Street Chapel, on August 15, 1852, by J. C. Philpot “And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.” (Romans 5:3-5) What, would you say, was the greatest attainment in religion? If… Read More

Preached at Gower Street Chapel, London, on May 21, 1865, by J. C. Philpot “I drew them with cords of a man, with bands of love: and I was to them as they that take off the yoke on their jaws, and I laid meat unto them.” (Hosea 11:4) Let us endeavor to unravel the words before us. First, we see that there was a people to whom the words were applicable… Read More

Preached at North Street Chapel, Stamford, on March 17, 1861, by J. C. Philpot And he said unto me, “My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.” Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. (2 Corinthians 12:9) The servants of God are often much tried by slanders being cast upon their character, or suspicions… Read More

Preached at Zoar Chapel, London, on July 26, 1846, by J. C. Philpot —————————— “Call unto me, and I will answer thee; and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.” (Jeremiah 33:3) —————————— These words were spoken by the Lord unto the prophet Jeremiah under peculiar circumstances. We read in the first verse of this chapter, “Moreover the word of the Lord came unto Jeremiah the second time, while… Read More

Preached on Thursday Evening, June 10th, 1841, at Zoar Chapel, London, by J. C. Philpot “He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him.” (Psalm 91:15) In the words of the text, we find a promise given in them, or rather a declaration which is sealed with a promise—”He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him.” I. The DECLARATION– “He shall call upon me.” But who is “he?” Unless… Read More

Preached at Zoar Chapel, London, on July 7, 1844, by J. C. Philpot “Look unto Me, and be saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.” (Isaiah 45:22) When in a solemn moment of spiritual meditation, and such, through mercy, we sometimes have we take a review of what has passed through our hearts, dropped from our lips or occupied our minds, during any… Read More

What exactly was the cost of REDEMPTION? Before we can answer this question we need to understand what is meant by the term “REDEMPTION”. In the original language the word “redemption”, as well as the root word “redeem” means “to redeem or liberate by payment of ransom” or “to buy out of a debt” (Vines Expository Dictionary). It has reference to the idea of purchasing a slave with a view to his… Read More

When Paul wrote the epistle to the believers at Colosse, he made a very interesting statement which runs totally contrary to what is taught in modern day religion – “Put on therefore, as the elect of God, HOLY AND BELOVED, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering.” (Colossians 3:12) Can you even begin to imagine the comfort and hope these two great words, “holy and beloved”, gave to these justified… Read More

When most religious people speak about the death of Christ, their words reveal they have little or no respect for the holiness, justice, or the grace of God. They speak of Christ suffering, bleeding, and dying for ALL MEN AND WOMEN WITHOUT EXCEPTION, including those who at present are suffering eternal torment in hell. They would never admit it, but they accuse the true and living God of something our own legal… Read More

Preached at North Street Chapel, Stamford, on May 2, 1858, by J. C. Philpot “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.” (1 Corinthians 2:9-10) Multitudes of… Read More

Preached at North Street Chapel, Stamford, on September 22, 1867, by J. C. Philpot —————————— “Many times did he deliver them; but they provoked him with their counsel, and were brought low for their iniquity. Nevertheless he regarded their affliction, when he heard their cry: And he remembered for them his covenant, and repented according to the multitude of his mercies.” (Psalm 106:43-45) —————————— The children of Israel were, as you well… Read More

Preached at Zoar Chapel, London, on Thursday Evening, July 17, 1845, by J. C. Philpot “Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance.” (Psalm 42:5) There is something singularly tender and touching in the enquiry that David here makes of his own soul. He addresses it as the faithful… Read More

Preached at Trinity Chapel, on Thursday evening, August 22, 1846, by J. C. Philpot “Shall iron break the northern iron and the steel?” (Jeremiah 15:12) Some people object very much to the use of figures in preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ. They say that the truths of the gospel need no such illustration; that the use of natural figures tends rather to carnalize and debase such glorious subjects than to cast… Read More

Preached at Providence Chapel, London, on August 30, 1846, by J. C. Philpot “Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.” (2 Timothy 3:5) Writing to his beloved son, Timothy, Paul in this Epistle tells him that “in the last days perilous times shall come.” But why should “the last days” be so particularly “perilous?” He says, “For men shall be lovers of their own selves,… Read More

Preached at Providence Chapel, on April 2nd, 1854, by J. C. Philpot. “To appoint unto those who mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.” (Isaiah 61:3) In speaking this morning upon the testimony of Jesus Christ,… Read More

Preached at Zoar Chapel, London, on Thursday Evening, July 25, 1844, by J. C. Philpot “O Lord, by these things men live, and in all these things is the life of my spirit: so wilt thou recover me, and make me to live.” (Isaiah 38:16) The words I have just read, some of you may remember, are a part of “the writing” that King Hezekiah penned after “he was recovered of that… 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… Read More

Acts 10:1 Ver. 1. There was a certain man in Caesarea,…. This was the Caesarea formerly called Strato’s tower, not Caesarea Philippi; for the former, and not the latter, lay near Joppa: called Cornelius; which was a Roman name, and he himself was a Roman or an Italian: a centurion of the band called the Italian band; which consisted of soldiers collected out of Italy, from whence the band took its name,… Read More

Preached at Allington, on August 9, 1840, by J. C. Philpot “We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto you do well that you take heed, as unto a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns, and the day star arises in your hearts.” (2 Peter 1:19) Many people are of opinion that had they lived in the times of the apostles, had they seen what… Read More

I was raised in religion and taught by well-intentioned individuals that “we were all God’s children,” that He “loved all men and women equally,” and that He wanted to and was trying to save everybody. They continually quoted John 3:16 and followed it up with Scriptures such as “God is love,” 1 John 4:16. To my natural unregenerate mind all of this sounded logical and was exactly what I wanted to believe…. Read More

Preached at Zion Baptist Chapel, on Wednesday evening, March 31st, 1847, by J. C. Philpot. “Surely, shall one say, in the Lord have I righteousness and strength: even to Him shall men come; and all who are incensed against Him shall be ashamed. In the Lord, shall all the seed of Israel be justified, and shall glory.” (Isaiah 45:24-25) The Scripture abounds with testimonies to the essential deity of the Lord Jesus… Read More

Preached at Zoar Chapel, London, on August 9, 1846, by J. C. Philpot “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:8-9) Perfection in Christ the Scriptures are full of; perfection in man the Scriptures know not. The… 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

Our Lord and His Apostles were careful to place significant emphasis on the perfect satisfaction He would offer to God on behalf of all those He represented. John 6:38 For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. John 6:39 And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of ALL (every elect sinner given to Him in the… Read More

Have you ever wondered how the Holy God of the Bible could make a guilty, defiled, hell-deserving sinner righteous (HOLY)? The Scriptures are quite clear that PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS (HOLINESS) is the requirement for any sinner’s entrance into God’s presence. Christ said: “For I say unto you, that except YOUR righteousness EXCEED the righteousness of the Scribes and Pharisees, you shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven…” (Matthew 7:20) We… 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

Nothing more clearly reveals to us that salvation, sanctification, and redemption is the work of our God than to observe the efforts and failure of those who TRY TO ACCOMPLISH THIS WORK FOR THEMSELVES! The disciples asked, “Lord, who then can be saved?” He said unto them, “with men it is impossible; but with God all things are possible” (Matthew 19:26). It is impossible in the flesh for a man to please… Read More

“Wherefore receive ye one another, as Christ also received us to the glory of God.” (Romans 15:7) When I have forgiven and forgotten every offense or wrong that I have experienced or imagined — When I have borne every hard word, act or thought — When I have overlooked, excused, and disregarded every weakness and fall or infirmity I see in others — When I have tried to understand and sympathize with… Read More

Man by his natural human reasoning always has a tendency to complicate the Gospel message. The reason they are so prone to this is because of their spiritual kinship to the one who has always complicated the message, SATAN. Paul wrote: “But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world (Satan) hath blinded the minds of them which believe not,… Read More

1 Timothy 3:16 is a clear reference where Jesus is called “God” and this is replaced by the ESV translated with the word “He”. The ESV says…. 1 Timothy 3:16 (ESV) “He was manifested in the flesh.” But the Word of God says… 1 Timothy 3:16 (KJV) “God was manifest in the flesh.” The LITV also faithfully translates this verse… 1 Timothy 3:16 (LITV) “God was manifested in flesh.” And most importantly… Read More

There must be a principle of better life that can savour, relish and feed upon better provision. Vanity and folly (says the wise man) feed the foolish. Self-will, self-sufficiency and self-righteousness feed the pharisee. Husks feed dry and legal convictions. A fair show in the flesh feeds the hypocrite. Human applause feeds the letter preacher. But the quickened soul must have the bread of life, for he is sure to perish without… Read More

If you ask religious men and women what they consider their position before God to be, the vast majority will tell you they think they are lacking in certain areas of their lives, which in turn causes God to have a lower view of them. They’ll give you a variety of answers concerning the areas in which they are lacking: “My faith isn’t what it should be” “I don’t keep the 10… Read More

When it comes to matters of eternal life, we can’t afford to be wrong, and therefore we must put away every preconceived idea and appeal strictly to God’s word and ask ourselves heart searching questions. The question we should always start with is this: How holy does a man have to be to go to heaven? What do the Scriptures actually teach us? Consider these verses. “Be ye therefore perfect, even as… Read More

The Disciples Are Astonished (Matthew 19:10-12) The Lord Jesus explained to the Pharisees that they cannot put away their wives for any reason they have invented, but that the only exception for a legitimate divorce is when the wife has committed fornication. And when divorce has taken place both parties should stay single, or be reconciled. This new teaching of Jesus caused great consternation among His disciples. Matthew 19:10 His disciples say… Read More

Sermon preached by J.K. Popham at Galeed, Brighton – 1910 __________________________________________________________ “Who His own self bare our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should ive unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.” (1 Peter 2:24) __________________________________________________________ This most glorious doctrine of the atonement the apostle utters almost in the same breath in which he has set forth Christ as an example to suffering… Read More

“For by grace are ye saved through faith, and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God.” (Ephesians 2:8) Is it faith that saves or God’s grace? Many speak of ‘saving faith,’ but the text says, ‘by grace are ye saved through faith…’ Faith is not the cause or ground of salvation, but rather the result or evidence of it, Hebrews 11:1. Salvation is by the free and sovereign GRACE… Read More

“Then I said, I am cast out of thy sight; yet I will look again toward thy holy temple.” (Jonah 2:4) It is a great mercy for God’s people that the account which the Holy Spirit has given of the saints in the Scripture is very different from the opinions which men form of them by nature. If we attend to the conceptions that the human heart naturally forms of saints, we… Read More

“Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,” 2 Timothy 1:9 Many talk today of ‘getting saved.’ However, such a term is never used in scripture and for a very important reason. The idea of ‘getting saved,’ implies something the sinner does to obtain or… Read More

A Mel Gibson film, ‘The Passion,’ is being touted by religious leaders and organizations as ‘one of the greatest evangelistic tools in modern-day history.’ There are, however, some things that I know that you won’t learn from it, even though some boast that it is a faithful rendering of the gospel accounts in the Bible. 1. It won’t teach you the GOSPEL. The Bible says, “it pleased God by the foolishness of… Read More

Divine justice demands a righteousness which the sinner cannot bring. In mercy Christ has wrought out a perfect righteousness, in obedience to the law, with which His Father is satisfied. “When the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth His Son, made of a woman, made under the law, to redeem them that were under the law.” (Galatians 4:4) “As by one man’s disobedience (Adam) many were made sinners, so… Read More

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)… 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.”… 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.
