The saint’s horror at the sinner’s hell



The saint’s horror at the sinner’s hell

‘Gather not my soul with sinners.’
 Psalm 26:9

Suggested Further Reading: 
Revelation 16:1–21

When impenitent sinners are gathered at the last their characters will be the same. They were filthy here, they will be filthy still. Here on earth their sin was in the bud; in hell it will be full-blown. If they were bad here, they will be worse there. 

Here they were restrained by providence, by company, by custom—there, there will be no restraints, and hell will be a world of sinners at large, a land of outlaws, a place where every man shall fol|ow out his own heart’s most horrible inclinations. 

Who would wish to be with them? Then again, the place where they will be gathered alarms us—the pit of hell, the abode of misery and wrath for ever—who would be gathered there? Then, their occupation. 

They spend their time in cursing God, in inventing and venting fresh blasphemies. They go from bad to worse; climbing down the awful ladder of detestable depravity. Who would wish to be with them? Remember too their sufferings; the pain of body and of soul they know, when God has cast both body and soul into hell. 

Who would wish to be with them? Recollect too that they are banished for ever from God, and God is our sun, therefore they are in darkness; God is our life, therefore they are worse than dead; God is our joy, therefore they are wretched in the extreme. 

Why, this would be hell, if there were no other hell to a Christian, to be banished from his God. Moreover, they are denied the joys of Christ’s society. No Saviour’s love for them, no blissful communion at his right hand, no living fountains of water to which the Lamb shall lead them. 

O my God, when I think of what the sinner is, and where he is, and how he must be there for ever, shut out from thee, my soul may well pray with anguish that prayer, ‘Gather not my soul with sinners.’

For meditation:

 At the final gathering (Matthew 3:12; 13:30) there will be a world of difference between the gathering of the saved (Matthew 13:43,47–48) and the gathering of the unsaved (Matthew 13:40–42,49–50) After this teaching Jesus asked ‘Have ye understood all these things?’ (Matthew 13:51). Have you? In which gathering will you be found?

Sermon no. 524
16 August (1863)

"Just balances, just weights, a just ephah, and a just hin, shall ye have."




"Just balances, just weights, a just ephah, and a just hin, shall ye have."
Leviticus 19:36.


Weights, and scales, and measures were to be all according to the standard of justice. Surely no Christian man will need to be reminded of this in his business, for if righteousness were banished from all the world beside, it should find a shelter in believing hearts. 

There are, however, other balances which weigh moral and spiritual things, and these often need examining. We will call in the officer to-night.

The balances in which we weigh our own and other men's characters, are they quite accurate? Do we not turn our own ounces of goodness into pounds, and other persons' bushels of excellence into pecks? See to weights and measures here, Christian. 

The scales in which we measure our trials and troubles, are they according to standard? Paul, who had more to suffer than we have, called his afflictions light, and yet we often consider ours to be heavy—surely something must be amiss with the weights! We must see to this matter, lest we get reported to the court above for unjust dealing. 

Those weights with which we measure our doctrinal belief, are they quite fair? The doctrines of grace should have the same weight with us as the precepts of the word, no more and no less; but it is to be feared that with many one scale or the other is unfairly weighted.

 It is a grand matter to give just measure in truth. Christian, be careful here. Those measures in which we estimate our obligations and responsibilities look rather small. 

When a rich man gives no more to the cause of God than the poor contribute, is that a just ephah and a just hin? 
When ministers are half starved, is that honest dealing? 
When the poor are despised, while ungodly rich men are held in admiration, is that a just balance? 

Reader, we might lengthen the list, but we prefer to leave it as your evening's work to find out and destroy all unrighteous balances, weights, and measures.

"Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe."


"Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe."
John 4:48.

A craving after marvels was a symptom of the sickly state of men's minds in our Lord's day; they refused solid nourishment, and pined after mere wonder. 

The gospel which they so greatly needed they would not have; the miracles which Jesus did not always choose to give they eagerly demanded. 

Many nowadays must see signs and wonders, or they will not believe. Some have said in their heart, "I must feel deep horror of soul, or I never will believe in Jesus." 

But what if you never should feel it, as probably you never may? Will you go to hell out of spite against God, because He will not treat you like another? One has said to himself, "If I had a dream, or if I could feel a sudden shock of I know not what, then I would believe."

 Thus you undeserving mortals dream that my Lord is to be dictated to by you! You are beggars at His gate, asking for mercy, and you must needs draw up rules and regulations as to how He shall give that mercy.

 Think you that He will submit to this? My Master is of a generous spirit, but He has a right royal heart, He spurns all dictation, and maintains His sovereignty of action. 

Why, dear reader, if such be your case, do you crave for signs and wonders? Is not the gospel its own sign and wonder? Is not this a miracle of miracles, that "God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him might not perish"? Surely that precious word, "Whosoever will, let him come and take the water of life freely" and that solemn promise, "Him that cometh unto Me, I will in no wise cast out," are better than signs and wonders! A truthful Saviour ought to be believed.

 He is truth itself. 
Why will you ask proof of the veracity of One who cannot lie? 
The devils themselves declared Him to be the Son of God; 
will you mistrust Him?

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
 If you are not a believer in Jesus Christ,
 you can be accepted in to his kingdom. 
 I invite you to let him to make of you,
 what He always wanted.
