Westminster Sermons - Sermon 27. The Beatific Vision Westminster Sermons - Sermon 27. The Beatific Vision

Westminster Sermons - Sermon 27. The Beatific Vision
SERMON XXVII. THE BEATIFIC VISIONPSALM LVII. A Psalm of David when he fled from Saul in the cave. Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me, for my soul trusteth in Thee, and under the shadow of Thy wings shall be my refuge, until this tyranny be over-past. I will call unto the most high God, even unto the God that shall perform the cause which I have in hand. He shall send from heaven, and save me from the reproof of him that would eat me up. God shall send forth His mercy and... Nonfictions - Post by : colmad - Date : May 2012 - Author : Charles Kingsley - Read : 2310

Westminster Sermons - Sermon 26. God And Mammon
SERMON XXVI. GOD AND MAMMONMATTHEW VI. 24. Ye cannot serve God and Mammon. This is part of the Gospel for this Sunday; and a specially fit text for this day, which happens to be St Matthew's Day. On this day we commemorate one who made up his mind, once and for all, that whoever could serve God and money at once, he could not: and who therefore threw up all his prospects in life--which were those of a peculiarly lucrative profession, that of a farmer of Roman taxes--in order to become the wandering disciple of a reputed carpenter's son. He... Nonfictions - Post by : andyj - Date : May 2012 - Author : Charles Kingsley - Read : 840

SERMON XXV. THE SILENCE OF FAITHPSALM CXXXI. Lord, my heart is not haughty, nor mine eyes lofty: neither do I exercise myself in great matters, or in things too high for me. Surely I have behaved and quieted myself, as a child that is weaned of his mother: my soul is even as a weaned child. Let Israel hope in the Lord from henceforth and for ever. We know not at what period of David's life this psalm was written. We know not what matters they were which were too high for him to meddle with; matters about...

Westminster Sermons - Sermon 24. The Blessing And The Curse
SERMON XXIV. THE BLESSING AND THE CURSEPreached on Whit-Sunday. DEUT. XXX. 19, 20. I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: that thou mayest love the Lord thy God, and that thou mayest obey His voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto Him: for He is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the Lord sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob,...

SERMON XXIII. DE PROFUNDIS.PSALM CXXX. Out of the deep have I called unto Thee, O Lord: Lord, hear my voice. O let Thine ears consider well the voice of my complaint. If Thou, Lord, wilt be extreme to mark what is done amiss, O Lord, who may abide it? For there is mercy with Thee, therefore shall Thou be feared. I look for the Lord; my soul doth wait for Him: in His word is my trust. My soul fleeth unto the Lord before the morning watch: I say, before the morning watch. O Israel, trust...

SERMON XXII. NOBLE COMPANYHEBREWS XII. 22, 23. Ye are come to the city of the living God, and to the spirits of just men made perfect. I have quoted only part of the passage of Scripture in which these words occur. If you want a good employment for All Saints' Day, read the whole passage, the whole chapter; and no less, the 11th chapter, which comes before it: so will you understand better the meaning of All Saints' Day. But sufficient for the day is the good thereof, as well as the evil; and the good which I have to... Nonfictions - Post by : andyj - Date : May 2012 - Author : Charles Kingsley - Read : 2897

Westminster Sermons - Sermon 18. Death
SERMON XVIII. DEATHPSALM CIV. 20, 21. Thou makest darkness, and it is night: wherein all the beasts of the forest do creep forth. The lions roar after their prey, and seek their meat from God. Let me say a few words on this text. It is one which has been a comfort to me again and again. It is one which, if rightly understood, ought to give comfort to pitiful and tender-hearted persons. Have you never been touched by, never been even shocked by, the mystery of pain and death? I do not speak now of...

Thou openest Thine hand, they are filled with good. Thou hidest Thy face, they are troubled. Thou takest away their breath, they die, and return to their dust. Thou sendest forth Thy Spirit, they are created: and Thou renewest the face of the earth. What is the most important thing to you, and me, and every man? I suppose that most, if they answered...

Westminster Sermons - Sermon 16. The Cedars Of Lebanon
SERMON XVI. THE CEDARS OF LEBANONPSALM CIV. 16. The trees of the Lord are full of sap; the cedars of Lebanon, which He hath planted. Let me say a few words this afternoon about the noble 104th Psalm, which was read this afternoon, as it is now in many churches, and most wisely and rightly, as the Harvest Psalm. It is a fit psalm for a service in which we thank God for such harvest as He has thought best to send us, whether it be above or below the average. But it is also a fit psalm to...

Westminster Sermons - Sermon 15. I
SERMON XV. IPSALM CXIX. 94. I am Thine, oh save me. Let us think seriously this afternoon of one word; the word which is the key-note of this psalm. A very short word; for in our language there is but one letter in it. A very common word; for we are using it all day long when we are awake, and even at night in our dreams; and yet a very wonderful word, for though we know well whom it means, yet what it means we do not know, and cannot understand, no, nor can the wisest philosopher who...

Thy truth also remaineth from one generation to another: Thou hast laid the foundation of the earth, and it abideth. They continue this day according to Thine ordinance: for all things serve Thee. If my delight had not been in Thy law, I should have perished in my trouble. I will never forget Thy commandments: for with them Thou hast quickened me. I am Thine, oh save me: for I have sought Thy commandments. The ungodly laid wait for... Nonfictions - Post by : adamsacres - Date : May 2012 - Author : Charles Kingsley - Read : 1771

SERMON XIII. THE ONE ESCAPEPSALM CXIX. 67. Before I was troubled, I went wrong: but now have I kept Thy Word. Let me speak this afternoon once more about the 119th Psalm, and the man who wrote it. And first: he was certainly of a different opinion from nine persons out of ten, I fear from ninety-nine out of a hundred, of every country, every age, and every religion. For, he says--Before I was troubled, I went wrong: but now have I kept Thy Word. Whereas nine people out of ten would say to God, if they dared--Before I was...

SERMON XII. THE REASONABLE PRAYERPSALM CXIX. 33, 94. O Lord, teach me Thy statutes, and I shall keep them to the end. I am Thine, O save me; for I have kept Thy commandments. Some who heard me last Sunday, both morning and afternoon, may have remarked an apparent contradiction between my two sermons. I hope they have done so. For then I shall hope that they are facing one of the most difficult, and yet most necessary, of all problems; namely the difference between the Law and the Gospel. In my morning sermon I spoke of...

SERMON VIII. THE SHAKING OF THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTHHEBREWS XII. 26-29. Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace by we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: for our God is a consuming fire.

SERMON VII. CONFUSIONPSALM CXIX. 31. I have stuck unto thy testimonies: O Lord, confound me not. What is the meaning of this text? What is this which the Psalmist and prophets call being confounded; being put to shame and confusion of face? What is it? It is something which they dread more than death; which they dread as much as hell. Nay, it seems in the mind of some of them to be part and parcel of hell itself; one of the very worst things which could happen to them after death: for what is written in the...

SERMON VI. THE FRUITS OF THE SPIRITST JOHN III. 8, The wind bloweth whither it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, or whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit. It is often asked--men have a right to ask--what would the world have been by now without Christianity? without the Christian religion? without the Church? But before these questions can be answered, we must define, it is discovered, what we mean by Christianity, the Christian religion, the Church. And it is found--or I at least believe it...

And He took him aside from the multitude, and put His fingers into his ears, and He spit, and touched his tongue; and looking up to heaven, He sighed, and said, Ephphatha, that is, Be opened. And straightway his ears were opened, and the string of his tongue was loosed, and he spake plain. . . . And they were beyond measure astonished, saying,...

SERMON IV. PRAYERPSALM LXV. 2. Thou that hearest prayer, unto Thee shall all flesh come. Next Friday, the 20th of December, 1871, will be marked in most churches of this province of Canterbury by a special ceremony. Prayers will be offered to God for the increase of missionary labourers in the Church of England. To many persons--I hope I may say, to all in this congregation--this ceremony will seem eminently rational. We shall not ask God to suspend the laws of nature, nor alter the courses of the seasons, for any wants, real or fancied, of our own....

The spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him; the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord. This is Isaiah's description of the Spirit of Whitsuntide; the royal Spirit which was to descend, and did descend without measure, on the ideal and perfect King, even on Jesus Christ our Lord, the only-begotten Son of God. That Spirit is the Spirit of God; and therefore the Spirit of Christ. Let us consider a while what that Spirit is. He...

This is Passion-week; the week in which, according to ancient and most wholesome rule, we are bidden to think of the Passion of Jesus Christ our Lord. To think of that, however happy and comfortable, however busy and eager, however covetous and ambitious, however giddy and frivolous, however free, or at least desirous to be free, from suffering of any kind, we are ourselves.
