A Few Last Words from Ebenezer Erskine

A friend, calling on Ebenezer Erskine during his last illness, said to him, “Sir, you have preached to others all these years; what are you now doing with your own soul?”

“I am doing with it,” he replied, “what I did forty years ago; I am resting on God’s Word, which says, ‘I am the Lord thy God’; and, on this, I mean to die.”

To another he said, “The covenant of grace is my charter; and if it had not been for his grace in Christ, my hope and strength would perish.”

  1. You have have no idea how much your web page means to me. I truly appreciate you and give thanks for your encouragement brother. May our LORD JESUS CHRIST be Glorified.

    • Praise be to God for His faithfulness to feed His sheep with the truth of His Word! I have nearly finished scheduling one post a day for the rest of this year so I am very happy about that especially as I believe God has led me to find so much sound gospel teaching to share with the brethren. I am currently working on more sermons by William Gadsby and William Tiptaft which I hope to post very soon and a few more by some Gospel Standard brethren from the 1900s. I am also hoping to add more articles by James Bourne and a few more of his sermons. I also hope that God helps me finish some more scripture word studies that I wanted to share, which will be “Image of the Beast”, “Mark of the Beast”, “Number of his Name”, “One Thousand Years”, “Day of Salvation”, “Two Witnesses”, “Hypocrite”, and a few more. I am very happy and thankful to God that you are being blessed by these studies. 🙂
