    The Life And Testimony Of John M’Kenzie

    My dear Friend,—I take up my pen to write you some account of the last days of our dear departed friend and brother, John M'Kenzie, believing that to you and many of the readers of the Gospel Standard it will be interesting. As you are fully aware of the nature of his complaint, (bleeding from the lungs,) I shall confine myself to his last attack; and to a few gleanings of the words which fell from his lips. He left Darley Dale, Derbyshire, on Wednesday, the 25th of July, and arrived at Preston the same evening, having travelled about seventy miles. He stood his journey remarkably well, and conversed freely during the evening, expressing thankfulness that he had safely arrived at Preston, his friends remarking…

    Sanctification By The Truth

    A Sermon Preached By John M’Kenzie At Zoar Chapel, Great Alie St, London, On Monday October 24th, 1842 “Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word, is truth.”—John 17:17 From these words I shall at once proceed to make a few remarks, without staying either to consider their connection, or losing time with any introductory observations, but shall immediately come to the subject by dividing it into two general heads. First: examine a little into the nature of the doctrine of divine sanctification; and Secondly: enquire briefly what we are to understand by truth, “Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.” We observe then, first, that “sanctification” throughout die Scriptures conveys the meaning of a separation or a setting apart for holy purposes. And…

    The Covenant God Of Israel

    A Sermon Preached By John M’Kenzie At Providence Chapel, Eden St, Hampstead Rd, on Lord’s Day morning, August 15th, 1847 “O Lord God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Jacob, our fathers; keep this for ever in the imagination of the thoughts of the heart of thy people; and prepare their heart unto thee.”—1 Chronicles 29:18 The preaching of the gospel of Christ is one of the greatest blessings which God confers upon the church, next to the gift of the beloved Son and the Scriptures; because it pleaseth God “by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.” When I say preaching, I mean such as God alone sends and blesses to the salvation of souls, and the glory of his own name. Where…

    Some Good Thing Toward The Lord

    A Sermon Preached by John M’Kenzie at Bedworth on Monday evening, June 1st, 1846 “And all Israel shall mourn for him and bury him; for he only of Jeroboam shall come to the grave, because in him there is found some good thing toward the Lord God of Israel in the house of Jeroboam.”—1 Kings 14:13 The Lord appeared to Solomon twice, and told him if he would keep his commandments, and walk before him as his father David had walked, that the kingdom should not depart from him; but if he forgat the Lord and departed from him, the Lord would depart from Solomon in a temporal sense, as it respected the kingdom of Israel. Solomon sinned and did not keep the commandments of…

    Moses Standing On Holy Ground

    A Sermon Preached By John M’Kenzie At Zoar Chapel, Great Alie St, London, On Thursday Evening, September 4th, 1845 “And he said, Draw not nigh hither; put of thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground.”—Exodus 3:5 Everything in this fallen world is corrupted, depraved, and ungodlike; and the child of God cannot be in it without suffering from its pollution and defilement. But spiritual and supernatural things have an intrinsic value, beauty, and glory in all their parts and bearings; and when they are made known feelingly and powerfully to the heart by the Holy Ghost, every branch of them becomes solemn and sacred to the soul. But, in different states of feeling, and in different stages…
