AN ORDER OF SERVICE FOR DIVINE WORSHIP; DESIGNED FOR PRIVATE DEVOTIONS, FAMILY GATHERINGS AND CHURCH MEETINGS.

Sermon—“Bible Testaments”

——————————-
Some of the points covered in this sermon:
• The two major divisions of the Bible—Old and New Testaments
• A testament is another term for covenant
• Examining the covenants/testaments of the Old Testament
• Examining the covenants/testaments of the New Testament
• Showing how the labels “Old Testament/Covenant” and “New Testament/Covenant” refer to the same covenant—the covenant of grace
• The Old Testament/Covenant is God’s administration (dispensation) of the covenant of grace before Christ came into the world; the New Testament/Covenant is God’s administration (dispensation) of the covenant of grace after Christ came into the world
• The substance of the Old and New Testaments/Covenants therefore teach the same gospel—sinners have always and only been saved according to the terms and promises of the covenant of grace

A Sermon Preached by Joseph Philpot at Providence Chapel, Eden Street, London, on Tuesday Evening, July 6, 1847

“Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.” John 15:4

Have you ever considered the experience of the disciples when their Lord and Master was sojourning here below? To my mind, there is something very instructive, and, I may add, very encouraging in it.

On the one hand, observe how ignorant they were of the nature of Christ’s kingdom! Two of the most eminent of them besought him that they might sit, the one on his right hand, and the other on his left, in his glory. What ignorance did that request imply of the nature of his spiritual kingdom, as if there were a right and a left hand there! Observe, too, their unbelief. How continually the Lord had to chide them! “Where is your faith?” and “O ye of little faith!” Remark also, their carnality and worldly-mindedness. How, on one occasion, two of them asked their Master that fire might come down from heaven to destroy his enemies! and how, at the very first onset of danger, “they all forsook him and fled!” It is, to my mind, very instructive and encouraging, thus to see their weakness, ignorance, and unbelief.

We have taken a hasty glance at the dark side of the question; we have traced out what they were in self. Let us now take another view of their character, and mark something of the…

According to some people, Christ died to give all a chance of being saved!

I do not know that I hate anything more in my soul than to hear that. It makes Jesus Christ so little that He should do so much, and after all only to get us a chance of being saved. Why, if a man is set up in business, you see how often it happens that he fails in it; and if man cannot manage the…
