God has nowhere declared concerning any of us, as individuals, that we shall be saved; all that He has revealed on this subject respects us as characters. The promises upon the accomplishment so much of our comfort depends are promises of grace.3. Let us hold fast the profession of hope without wavering. When we look through the red glass what colour will the things be that we are looking at? "Truly that is everything good," answered Luther. It is a kind of clock made to wake persons at a particular hour by making a loud noise. 20).3. (3) Further, look into your own souls and see if you cannot discern some part of the truth of the Scripture statement, which I have been trying to set before you. What to? Nor have I any other proof of my faith's genuineness yesterday, but my exercising faith this moment. As well might he endeavour to escape from his shadow when the sun is shining.

The great thing for us is to apply the right test to ourselves, and to look for those signs of salvation in ourselves which our Lord and His apostles have laid down, that we might try ourselves by them.(W.

He was welcomed. "(Anecdotes of Luther. If we read the text according to our present authorised translation, we have faith. We may injure them by doing wrong to those about us, or by sinning against God. Let us be careful that we do not injure our consciences by not letting in this light.2. Note the relative position of this. If we do not draw near to God, we dis-honour His Son, and so dishonour Himself, in so far as we frustrate the great design of the mystery of Christ (John 5:23).IV. By not minding what they say. Nothing else but faith in full, vigorous, healthy exercise. Trapp.Not with a quarter or half wind, but with full assurance, such a gale of faith as fills the sails of the soul, and makes it set up its top-gallant as it were.(J. THE DUTY HERE ENJOINED.

Only hearty and honest seekers will ever be true believers, such always will "in an honest and good heart receive the word." O. Mackey.Admiral Foote, of the American navy, was a very godly man. It is so delicate that it can feel the slightest touch. (5)By the continual use of all the appointed means of grace.III. Colwell. (Owen Clarke.

Love to Jesus is a powerful motive. Bug though faith is placed after heartiness and honesty, let it not be overlooked-otherwise our coming is vain.4. Let us draw near in these ordinances —(1) As rebels accepting the King's peace, indemnity in the blood of His Son; draw near, and welcome (Isaiah 27:5).

God doesn’t forget all that we do for Him, He doesn’t forget what he has promised us. Faithfulness is an essential perfection of the Divine nature. THE NATURE OF THE PROMISES.1. The great thing for us is to apply the right test to ourselves, and to look for those signs of salvation in ourselves which our Lord and His apostles have laid down, that we might try ourselves by them.(W.

SOME CONSIDERATIONS TENDING TO ESTABLISH OUR CONFIDENCE IN THE DIVINE FAITHFULNESS AS A SECURITY THAT THE PROMISES WILL BE FULFILLED.1. Our text points to Him who fills the throne itself; we are contemplating Him as engaged to us by a covenant ordered in all things and sure; and as having communicated in consequence exceeding great and precious promises, while He is faithful to each and every promise which He has thus made.2. The next inference is, they who use the means of grace will profit thereby.3. They are many and various, every way suited to the numerous and diversified wants both of saints and sinners.II. What inconceivable agony to be shut up with the ghostly memories of past sin, and to hear, through long centuries of gloom and despair, only the uttered and echoed curses which sin brings down upon the soul! "But how can you bring Him everything good, seeing that you are but a poor sinner?" God. "In ordinary cases," says a man eminent for his ability, piety, and experience, "I entertain a better opinion of the modest, doubting, and fearful professor than of the bold and assured one."2. No; great as this privilege is, God has meant something for us infinitely greater. There must be decision of character. We have boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way; and we have in the heavenly sanctuary a great Priest over the house of God. If you were not false then, if you were not deceivers then, hold fast the confession of your hope without wavering, for" He is faithful that promised." "Till I come," is the voice of the Saviour, when faith beholds His dying love; and going forth to meet Him, going forth out of the world's sin, bondage, gloom, is the response of the bride.3. Wherever he goes, or whatever he does, he feels self-reproach and a sense of the displeasure of the Almighty. But do not confound sincerity with worthiness: that is another thing altogether. It means that we must receive into our hearts a sense and full belief of the efficacy of the death of Jesus Christ to cancel all our guilt and condemnation, and of the power of the Holy Spirit to make us yet good and holy and fit for the presence of God. )Hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience.Sins of ignorance and weaknessJ. (Coleridge's Aids to Reflection. The promises upon the accomplishment so much of our comfort depends are promises of grace.3. This hope is a perfect hope. WE OUGHT TO DRAW NEAR: "Let us draw near." That gnawing canker! If, after all, it has been a mistake and a delusion, then give it up. Christ, founded on a firm conviction that what is made known to us in the gospel. God is on a throne of grace in Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 5:19).2. For some nights they were the only occupants, but by and by the curtain was opened, and a blue-jacket said, "May I come in?" (4) As friends; friends of God, to have fellowship with Him, who may freely converse with Him: to unbosom ourselves to Him, and to be let into the secrets of the covenant (John 15:15). IT IS A FACT — "He is faithful that promised."1. Glad news this to poor sensible sinners! It is not on your own works and your own productions that you can repose. It is God's presence makes holy ground; God's immediate presence in Christ makes any place the holiest of all: and this is it into which we are to draw nigh, and in which we are to abide. This is no back entry, but the most glorious way to the throne. But neighbour Smith's conscience is of the ex post facto order, never manifesting itself till after the wrong deed is done, and then acting as a terrible avenger. Hope is inseparable from faith, but distinct. It came to the ears of the commander, who was a Roman Catholic — but I mention this to his honour. "(2)The faith itself once delivered to the saints. A window is of use for letting light into room, and also for looking through, that we may see what is outside of the window. But if you turn over and go to sleep again for two or three mornings, the alarum-clock will lose its power, or rather you will lose your power of hearing it or of being awakened by it. Of whom it is that our text speaks. God has put these eyes in our bodies that we may see where to go and what to do. Adam had a way to it, but that is blocked up; there is a new and living way consecrated for us (ver. (2)Sensible sinners dare not (Luke 5:8).II. anxiously asked the Doctor. If you were not false then, if you were not deceivers then, hold fast the confession of your hope without wavering, for" He is faithful that promised."

We are to draw near, and dwell always, to live our life and do our work within the sphere, the atmosphere of the inner sanctuary. Herein is the importance of the doctrine of original sin. "Without wavering." IT IS A FACT — "He is faithful that promised."1. (3) Get your hearts beforehand " sprinkled from an evil conscience." Then, the promise of the Holy Ghost. Another Jack Tar was creeping along, and said, "May I come?" Only lay bare your secret. We are secure; when one that is able hath passed his word, and by promise bound himself unto us, then we make sure thus far of the thing promised. )Standing.fireSome time ago, in one of our great ships of war, there was a solitary sailor who was not ashamed to own himself a follower of Christ. With striking confidence the youth at once replied, "Everything that is good, dear father — everything that is good!" Not weary, but faithful unto death.4. With sincerity. To draw near to God, in the sense of our text, is to seek Him in the use of the appointed means of grace, that we may be restored to His favour and image, and enjoy a heartfelt sense of that restoration.1.

The name of the Lord is faithful and true. There is a way to the throne never trod, nor designed to be trod, by any but sinners such as you, and the like of you. Faith means trust, reliance, confidence, leaning. The way to heaven is associated with conflicts.3. 1. Another Jack Tar was creeping along, and said, "May I come?" WHAT WE ALREADY HAVE by the grace of God. Faithfulness is an essential perfection of the Divine nature. Hebrews 10:23.

W. Dale, LL. )Hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience.Sins of ignorance and weaknessJ. O. Mackey.Admiral Foote, of the American navy, was a very godly man. And however long we have laboured at it, still how much unconscious, unavoidable sin, the result of past transgression, is thrown out from our hearts day by day in the energy of our thinking and acting!3. He was welcomed. We now consider the faithfulness of God to His promises. Bear one another's burdens. Then you are at peace. So that all is sure on God's part, and man hath no cause to waver, except he neglect his duty; and if he perish, his destruction must be of himself.

He used to be called the "Stonewall Jackson of the Navy." (Coleridge's Aids to Reflection. )Abiding in the holiest of allAndrew Murray.Some speak as if the "Let us draw near" meant prayer, and that in our special approach to' God in acts of worship we enter the holiest of all. We have been marked anew with the King's name. To the sinner. The apostle Paul speaks in one place of men's consciences, which, he says, have been "seared with a hot iron" (1 Timothy 4:2). It is no doubt true that to believe in Christ is to trust in Him for our own individual salvation, for the forgiveness of our own sins and the salvation of our own souls. For some nights they were the only occupants, but by and by the curtain was opened, and a blue-jacket said, "May I come in?" Another Jack Tar was creeping along, and said, "May I come?" Let us detest and eternally abhor to waver; let us go on whatsoever it may cost us.(G. They have all an immediate connection with the Lord Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 1:20).3. Has the Lord been untrue in His promises to you? (6) As a spouse to a husband, for our Maker is our Husband. We have a promise. But Christ's faithfulness is here laid down as the great motive.1. Let us remember also the many times in which we have repeated that profession of faith, that confession of hope; for instead of retracting it, we have gone on to repeat it. None of the promises, how conditional soever in their form, are altogether beyond the reach of sinners, so long as they are in the land of the living and place of hope.5. (2)Opposition of world. It is not on your own works and your own productions that you can repose. Spurgeon. But obviously all this would be in vain if it be not possible for Christians to have some well-founded assurance that they are in a state of salvation. "But how can you bring Him everything good, seeing that you are but a poor sinner?" To draw near to God, in the sense of our text, is to seek Him in the use of the appointed means of grace, that we may be restored to His favour and image, and enjoy a heartfelt sense of that restoration.1. The clock will continue to sound the alarm at the proper hour, and it will make as much noise as ever it did, but it will lose its effect. THE DUTY HERE ENJOINED. THE PROFESSION REFERRED TO.1. Vaughan, M. A.Of course, the expression "sprinkled" is metaphorical. But notice we are to hold fast the profession of our hope because “he is faithful” that promised. We are ever sinning; and though Christ has died once for all to release us from our penalty, yet we are not pardoned once for all, but according as, and whenever each of us supplicates for the gift. "Thy first father hath sinned": this is the legend on our forehead which even the sign of the Cross does no more than blot out, leaving the mark of it. This faithfulness presupposeth His power and His promise, and it is the immutability of His will, for as He is unchangeable in His being, so He is in His promise (1 Samuel 15:29; Malachi 3:6). With sincerity. A FEW BRIEF, PRACTICAL INFERENCES.1. The thing which we desire, and which is promised unto us, is not only the reward of eternal glory, which is the object of our hope, but power and ability with assistance to do all things necessary for the attainment thereof; for in the gospel, not only the reward, but power to perform our duty, are promised (Ephesians 1:16-19).2. Before the First Advent believers looked forward in faith and hope to the good things to come. Now, conscience is God's alarum-clock. He used to be called the "Stonewall Jackson of the Navy."

D.The doctrine of the Incarnation is a promise; it assures us that God has become man to save us from sin. The answer to this question will depend upon the way in which we injure our consciences. (2)By the constraining influence of Christ's love. The way to heaven is associated with conflicts.3. Newton, D. D.Suppose that all the people in the place where we live had some disease of the eye, and that in consequence some were not able to see at all, while none of them were able to see anything clearly. We may be hearty without being honest.3. that dogging fear! How THIS DUTY MAY BE ACCEPTABLY PERFORMED. So in the heart of every man there is, deep down, the buried power of conscience, and in days of pain and sickness and loneliness and bereavement, of holy ministry and quickening, the voice of conscience, fathoms deep, is heard in the breast of man, speaking for God and truth, and of judgment to come.(F. you may draw near to God. Where faith and hope are found, love cannot be far off; for the three Divine sisters are seldom separated. "Without wavering." For a long time he was alone; no other sailor joined him. H. Newman, D. D.)Healing the evil conscienceR. (6) As a spouse to a husband, for our Maker is our Husband. (3)Indisposition of our own hearts.II. To keep an account of what we do.

Religion has cost many of its disciples somewhat dear: but it has cost nothing compared with its worth. No change will take place in the clock, but a great change will take place in yon. Shall we come out of Egypt, and come so near the borders of the heavenly Canaan, and turn hack? Notice how thin and tender is the skin on your hand or face. Another came, and another, and the last account I heard from that ship was this, that every night thirty-two were meeting for prayer, thirty of them believed to be converted characters. (2) Draw near in the "full assurance of faith." God is unchangeable both in His nature and purpose; it is impossible, therefore, that He can ever disappoint the hopes that His goodness has raised.(G. The confession is the outward sign of the invisible hope. For —1. Faith rests on the past, the accomplished work of Jesus; hope looks to the future, the return of our Saviour. When in the midst of the flames he exhorted his companions to constancy, saying, "We shall not end our lives in the fire, but make a change for a better life; yea, for coals we shall receive pearls. On examination it was found that the charge was wholly groundless, and that these accusing voices were imaginary, being but the echo of a guilty conscience. )The security of the promiseG. (2) Next, to pass from the Jewish law, you will observe that God tells us expressly in the history of the fall of Adam, what the legal ceremonies implied; that it is our very nature which is sinful. The doctrine of the Atonement is a promise; it explains the ground on which God grants the pardon of sin. (Andrew Murray. H. Place yourself under the "sprinkling"; if you cannot, ask Him to place you. "But how can you bring Him everything good, seeing that you are but a poor sinner?" The promises upon the accomplishment so much of our comfort depends are promises of grace.3. "He is faithful that promised." But if we wish to have a correct view of the things that we are looking at through a window, what sort of glass is it necessary to have in the window? (6) As a spouse to a husband, for our Maker is our Husband. To this day it fulfils its original purpose of impressing upon man his great guilt and feebleness. Then Adam's sin increased, and multiplied itself within us; there was a change, but it was for the worse, not for the better; and the new nature we gained, far from being spiritual, was twofold more the child of hell than that with which we were born. God is on a throne of grace in Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 5:19).2. Gratitude for past mercies. Our text points to Him who fills the throne itself; we are contemplating Him as engaged to us by a covenant ordered in all things and sure; and as having communicated in consequence exceeding great and precious promises, while He is faithful to each and every promise which He has thus made.2. THE DUTY HERE ENJOINED. Our present happiness, and our prospect of eternal felicity. One evening he perceived a shadow by the side of the gun. or refuse to go forward?

Suppose you have one of these clocks, and you wish it to waken you so that you can rise every morning at four o'clock.
