This will be an enlargement, or freedom from 동대문오피 sin, from all temptations to it, from its dominion, from the commission of it, from the very inbeing of it. Now shall that promise have its accomplishment, There shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of the Lord—from Satan and his temptations, from evil men, they that offend will be gathered out of this kingdom, from bodily afflictions; the Inhabitants shall no more say I am sick—here we shall be at liberty, enjoy Father, Son, and Spirit; hold fellowship with him without interruption, be favored with clear apprehensions of his perfections and glory, as they shine in Christ. Then we shall see, love, admire, and adore the Lamb in the midst of the throne—see the glory of his person, with the eyes of the soul, and his body with our bodily eyes—the glory of his human nature: see him in that nature that bore our sins, wearing the very marks and scars he received for us; that dear head that was once crowned with thorns! that dear face that was once marred more than any! those dear hands, feet, and side, that were wounded! We shall then see him in all his glory—This is the joy set before us, p. 41for which we endure the cross; we shall see him as he is, and be like him for ever—This is the glory to be revealed in the saints, beyond all comparison; this will be a joy unspeakable, and full of glory. How sweet the promise, The ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with songs, and everlasting joy upon their heads; they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away! This shall be the high priviledge of every vessel of mercy.

I close this Sermon with an excellent quotation from Mr. Huntington’s “Spiritual Sea Voyage;” which book has often entertained me.

  • “Free grace and her crew all arrived at last,
No sailor was miss’d, when the muster was past;
By thousands and millions the angels appear’d,
And welcomed us with the anthems we heard.
We sung of Redemption, in Jesus the Lord—
Of sovereign Love, and how we were restor’d—
The dangers we met, and the helps that appear’d—
Of infinite Wisdom, by which we were steer’d.
Delightful the Union, and great was the throng,
The melody charming, delightful the song:
An order came forth for ascending the throne,
And when we were seated the judgment came on.”

Thus, christian reader, I have shewn my opinion of the Names of the Patriarchs. I have not written all I wished, lest it should swell this Sermon to a volume. I have noticed some of the Lord’s dealings 동대문오피 with my own soul—every minister ought to give some account of a Work of Grace upon his p. 42own heart; I have not made myself all in all, rather nothing at all; I only aimed at the exaltation of that grace it is God’s delight to display. I have chosen this method of sending it into the world, because, as I went over these Names, various parts of my own experience appeared so clear I could not forbear mentioning them, to the honour of God. I originally intended to publish an Account of the Dealings of the Lord with me, in a Series of Letters, when I could have been more explicit and regular in my Narrative; but as I intend those Letters, only for a few thoughts on some interesting passages of Scripture, I have made mention of the above in this Sermon; this will no doubt procure me much more opposition from friend and foe; however, what I have written is the truth; to the God of all truth I commit it, hoping it will be blessed to the friends of truth—remembering divine Love, or Charity, rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth, beareth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
