    Satisfied

    A Sermon Preached By John E. Hazelton "They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of Thy house: and Thou shall make them drink of the river of Thy pleasures. For with Thee is the fountain of life; in Thy light shall we see light.”—Psalm 36:8,9 The older the child of God grows, the more he realises the disappointing and transitory and heart-sickening character of the world in which he dwells. The more he knows of his own heart, so fickle and changeable, the more he knows of the fulness and the lovingkindness of his never-changing God, the more precious does the book of Psalms become to him. Of all parts of the Word of God, this book is perhaps most frequently before the eyes,…

    Should It Be So?

    A Sermon Preached By John E. Hazelton When His Only Son Died, August 1st, 1909 "Should it be according to thy mind?”—Job 34:33 The Book of Leviticus contains a series of very blessed illustrations of the Gospel of our God, of the Person and of the work of the Lord Jesus Christ. When we are enabled prayerfully to read it with a spiritual eye, by the side of the gospel as recorded in the New Testament, and in the light of the Epistle to the Hebrews, we are favoured to become somewhat instructed in the things that make for our eternal peace. It is Jehovah Himself who is speaking in nearly every verse in this book. I would draw your attention first, ere we pass…

    Manna

    "There is nothing at all beside this manna.”—Numbers 11:6 The Children of Israel, about six weeks after they were brought out of Egypt, were led into the Wilderness of Sin. For a whole month between their resting at Elim and their entry into the Wilderness of Sin we know nothing of their history: but at the end of the full six weeks we see them travelling through this wilderness. The word "Sin" means "The thorn bush;" the Israelites were about to pass through the Wilderness of the Thorn Bush. The stores of food which they had brought out of Egypt had, by the end of six weeks, come practically to an end. Here in the Wilderness of the Thorn Bush were a million and a…

    The Burnt Offering

    "And he shall put his hand upon the head of the burnt offering; and it shall be accepted for him, to make atonement for him."—Leviticus 1:4,5 The Book of Leviticus contains a series of very blessed illustrations of the Gospel of our God, of the Person and of the work of the Lord Jesus Christ. When we are enabled prayerfully to read it with a spiritual eye, by the side of the gospel as recorded in the New Testament, and in the light of the Epistle to the Hebrews, we are favoured to become somewhat instructed in the things that make for our eternal peace. It is Jehovah Himself who is speaking in nearly every verse in this book. I would draw your attention first,…

    The Breastplate

    “And thou shalt put in the breastplate of judgment the Urim and the Thummim.”—Exodus 28:30 The breastplate that formed so prominent and beautiful an object in the dress of the High Priest of Israel, was designated the breastplate of judgment because, as this verse affirms, God directed that the Urim and Thummim—" lights and perfections "—should be placed in it. The breastplate was fastened to the blue robe of the ephod; a bag was at the back of the breastplate, and in this bag what is designated Urim and Thummim were placed. The marginal reading has it "lights and perfections." By Urim and Thummim the High Priest of Israel consulted the Lord in seasons of embarrassment and perplexity; and by Urim and Thummim the mind…

    Mount Moriah

    "And the Angel of the Lord called unto him out of heaven, and said, Abraham, Abraham; and he said. Here am I.”—Genesis 22:11 The biographies of Holy Scripture contain records of the lives and of the conduct of men and women whom the Holy Ghost the great Author of Scripture, brings prominently under our notice. Every biography of Holy Writ is a faithful delineation of the character of the man or woman whose history it portrays. God the Holy Ghost has drawn these lives out for our profit and for our edification. " Whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning," that is, with a special design of conveying instruction to the Church and people of God. The lives of ordinary great men…
