    Vessels Of Wrath And Vessels Of Mercy

    I would beg to acquaint the Christian Reader of the following pages, that I preached the Sermons of which they form the substance, at the particular request of some brethren in the Lord, who were de­sirous of hearing a scriptural exposition of these verses. I bless God that I have been enabled to study, preach, and send forth my discourses in a spirit of prayer and submission, as opposite to my natural dispo­sition as light is to darkness. My reasons for printing are, a desire to he useful to the people of God, and to prevent perversion and misre­presentation; or, at all events, by printing as nearly as possible, the positions, assertions, and expressions, proved and made use of, to afford all an opportunity of…

    A Complete And Certain Salvation

    “The Lord God will help Me, therefore shall I not be confounded; therefore have I set My face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed.”—Isaiah 50:7 These surely, brethren, are not the words of the pro­phet Isaiah concerning himself; for, if we look at the context, we find the work of the Lord Jesus set before us in such words as these: “The Lord God hath opened mine ear, and I was not rebellious, neither turned away back. I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair: I hid not my face from shame and spitting.” I need scarcely tell you of whom the prophet spake in these words. We have in…

    The New Covenant

    A covenant means a contract, compact, arrangement between two or more persons. As employed by God it denotes the methods and terms in which He deals with men. He brought Israel out of Egypt by His outstretched arm, and entered into a covenant with them at Sinai. In our text He promises to enter into another arrangement with His people of a different nature to that made at Sinai, which they had broken. An understanding of this covenant, and an interest in it, are matters of paramount importance. It is denominated “a new covenant.” This refers to the date of its publication, otherwise it existed before the other covenant. As Kent sings:— " This cov'nant stood ere time began, That God with men might dwell;…

    Study 9: Justification Explained, By Redeeming Grace (3:19-31)

    This recording picked up two audio sources resulting in an echo effect. Jared hopes the listener/watcher will forebear the unpleasant sound in view of benefitting from the teachings. This study begins a new section in Paul's letter to the Romans—How Are Sinners Secured Salvation By God? Paul divides his answer under four headings, unfolding the various roles assumed by the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit under the terms and promises of the gracious covenant. He begins in (3:19-5:21) with the role of God the Son, in the person of the Lord Jesus Christ. This study examines Paul's explanation on the central message of the gracious covenant—justified freely by the Father's grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus (3:19-31).

    Study 8: Three Groups, Three Covenants, Three Laws

    This study explores the distinctions between three major groups, covenants and laws recorded by Paul in his letter to the Romans. The Non-Elect are under the authority of the Covenant of Works, subject to the heart law; the Elect are under the authority of the Covenant of Grace, subject to the gospel law; the Jewish people as a nation were under the authority of the Mosaic Covenant, subject to its law. Failure to distinguish between these groups, covenants and laws is the cause of much confusion among professing Christians. This is particularly true with reference to the issues surrounding Hyper-Calvinism. Arminians and Moderate-Calvinists mistakenly believe the whole matter revolves around an excessive view of divine sovereignty, when it actually turns on the hinges of the…

    Letter 4: To Berith—On The Covenant Of Grace

    My dear Berith, The conspicuous change which has been effected in you, by the grace of God, affords me peculiar satisfaction, and begets in my mind, an anxiety for the increase and permanency of those pleasures of which you have already tasted; and with this object in view, allow me to lead your attention to the inexhaustible treasure, whence all spiritual blessings are derived; even the COVENANT OF GRACE. “Be ye always mindful of his covenant” is the express command of Jehovah to his people, by his servant David; and if my dear young friend were fully aware of the advantage arising from habitual appropriation of the covenant plentitude, and holy communion with the covenant head, the constant  cry of his heart would be “Lord…
