Preached at the old Surrey Tabernacle, Borough Road, London, Wednesday Evening, June 1st, 1842 – By William Gadsby. “To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God.” (Isaiah 61:2) Our text contains one part of the ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ; and as a solemnly glorious minister of the New Testament, He was anointed by the LORD for the important work. And the two… Read More

Edward Hendrie, Author of the book, ‘The Greatest Lie on Earth,’ discusses the truth about the actual Earth we live on in contradistinction to what we have been taught all of our lives.

It is common for us as true believers to want to see some evidences within ourselves of our salvation and the blessed and powerful work of the Holy Spirit within us. We want to see genuine faith in Christ, true repentance and godly sorrow over sin, love for Christ and our brethren. We want to see a sincere desire to follow Christ in the obedience of faith as motivated by love, grace,… Read More

Preached by brother J. K. Popham at Galeed Chapel, Brighton – Wednesday Evening – 22nd January, 1930. “The LORD is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble, and He knoweth them that trust in Him.”(Nahum 1:7) It is a mercy to be kept exercised toward God. To be realising from day to day our weakness, ignorance, sinfulness and liability to fall at every movement, at every turn, so as being led… Read More

I remember when I was a boy, eight years old, I had a whooping cough very bad indeed for a long while. My mother was going to meeting one Sunday, and I wished a note to be written for her to take to the minister about my cough, which being done, I wished my father at the same time to go to prayer to the Saviour, for I used to read about… Read More

There is nothing negative about those glorious truths concerning God’s electing love and Christ’s particular atonement for the elect. Although men sometimes dwell on the fact that some won’t be saved, that is missing the point altogether of these glorious truths. Election and redemption do not shut men out of heaven who might have been there. It is the opposite! God’s electing love and the work of Christ on the cross bring… Read More

Most men and most women who fear God have a problem: there is at times something in their lives which they know is wrong, but they cannot stamp it out. Conscience troubles them. At times they lie awake in bed worrying about it. It may be something no one knows anything about but themselves. It may be a wrong friendship developing, or a liking for strong drink, or a failing to speak… Read More

“And when Esau heard the words of his father, he cried with a great and exceeding bitter cry, and said unto his father, Bless me, even me also, O my father.”(Genesis 27:34) “For ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place for repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears.”(Hebrews 12:17) I should not perchance refer to Esau’s tears were… Read More

“The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe.” (Proverbs 29:25) Man is naturally a sociable and a dependent creature. Society is necessary for man, even according to God’s word – “It is not good that the man should be alone” (Genesis 2:18). And relationships and positions in life bring about various communications between men, – inter-dependences – so that no man can really, practically, be… Read More

“The prudent man forseeth the evil and hideth himself, but the simple pass on and arepunished.” (Proverbs 22:3) There is a vein of truth and of experience in this Scripture which, if the LORD would kindly open to us, and apply to us, we should find to our edification; we should find it profitable. The way to heaven is very difficult. Christ has left no uncertain sound on this. He said to one… Read More

“For ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place for repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears.”(Hebrews 12:17) “And when Esau heard the words of his father, he cried with a great and exceeding bitter cry, and said unto his father, Bless me, even me also, O my father.”(Genesis 27:34) I should not perchance refer to Esau’s tears were… Read More

Substance of Sermon preached by brother John William Tyler on Thursday Evening, August 29th, 1974. “For she had heard in the country of Moab how that the LORD had visited his people in giving them bread.”(Ruth 1:6) Obviously the word that attracted us in the clause is; “The LORD had visited his people in giving them bread.” It is this term of the gospel that is before us, to visit. I shall… Read More

“Even so, it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish.”(Matthew 18:14) — Should it please the LORD, we will attempt, Firstly, to notice these “little ones;” Secondly, to notice that they have many times great fears whether they shall perish at last or not; and, Thirdly, we shall notice that these fears are all groundless. I. Our text says, “It is not the… Read More
