As a voice from the past, God's mighty man raises His Standard high,
that God's Truth should not be lost in these
Last Days of deception.

"He being dead yet speaketh"
(Hebrews 11:4 ).

Jonathan Edwards

God has laid himself under no obligation,
by any promise to keep any natural man
out of hell one moment.
God certainly has made no promises
either of eternal life,
or of any deliverance or preservation
from eternal death,
but what are contained in the covenant of grace,
the promises that are given in Christ,
in whom all the promises are yea and amen."

-from "SINNERS in the HANDS of an ANGRY GOD"
---New Window
by Jonathan Edwards


"8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an Open Door, and NO man can shut it:
for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept My WORD, and hast not denied My Name.

Because thou hast kept the WORD of My patience, I also will keep thee
from The Hour Of Temptation
, which shall come upon all the world,
to try them that dwell upon the earth.

Behold, I come quickly: HOLD THAT FAST which thou hast,
that NO man take thy crown.

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches"
(Revelation 3:8,10-11,13).


His Name is The WORD.

Sermons by Jonathan Edwards

Group 1

Jonathan Edwards: GOD Glorified in Man's Dependence ---New Window
1 Corinthians 1:29, 30, 31 "That no flesh should glory in his presence. But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: that, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord." THOSE Christians to whom the apostle directed this epistle, dwelt in a part of the world where human wisdom was in great repute; as the apostle observes in the 22nd verse of this chapter, "The Greeks seek after wisdom."

Jonathan Edwards: Absent from the Body ---New Window
THE apostle in this place is giving a reason why he went on with so much boldness and immovable steadfastness, through such labors, sufferings, and dangers of his life, in the service of his Lord; for which his enemies, the false teachers among the Corinthians, sometimes reproached him as being beside himself, and driven on by a kind of madness.

Jonathan Edwards: Christian Knowledge ---New Window
HEBREWS 5:12 "For Then for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat." THESE words are a complaint, which the apostle makes against the chrictian Hebrews, for their want of such proficiency in the knowledge of the doctrines and mysteries of religion, as might have been expected of them.

Jonathan Edwards: The Importance and Advantage of a Thorough Knowledge of Divine Truth ---New Window
Hebrews 5:12 "For when, for the time, ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat." These words are a complaint, which the apostle makes of a certain defect in the Christian Hebrews, to whom he wrote.

Jonathan Edwards: Christ's Agony ---New Window
LUKE 22:44. "And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground." OUR Lord Jesus Christ, in his original nature, was infinitely above all suffering, for he was "God over all, blessed for evermore;" but, when he became man, he was not only capable of suffering, but partook of that nature that is remarkably feeble and exposed to suffering.
  Wisdom is justified.


Group 2

Jonathan Edwards: The Excellency of Christ ---New Window
The visions and revelations the apostle John had of the future events of God's providence, are here introduced with a vision of the book of God's decrees, by which those events were fore-ordained.

Jonathan Edwards: Safety, Fulness, and Sweet Refreshment in Christ ---New Window
Isaiah 32:2 "And a man shall be as an hiding-place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest; as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land." In these words we may observe, 1. The person who is here prophesied of and commended, viz. the Lord Jesus Christ, the King spoken of in the preceding verse, who shall reign in righteousness.

Jonathan Edwards: Many Mansions ---New Window
JOHN 14:2. "In My Father's house are many mansions." IN these words may be observed two things, 1. The thing described, viz., Christ's Father's house. Christ spoke to his disciples in the foregoing chapter as one that was about to leave them. He told 'em, verse 31, "Now is the Son of Man glorified, and God is glorified in him," and then goes to giving of them counsel to live in unity and love one another, as one that was going from them.

Jonathan Edwards: Pressing into the Kingdom of God ---New Window
Luke 16:16 "The law and the prophets were until John; since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it." In these words two things may be observed: First, Wherein the work and office of John the Baptist consisted, viz. in preaching the kingdom of God, to prepare the way for its introduction to succeed the law and the prophets.

Jonathan Edwards: God's Sovereignty in the Salvation of Men ---New Window
ROMANS 9:18. "Therefore hath he mercy on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will he hardeneth." THE apostle, in the beginning of this chapter, expresses his great concern and sorrow of heart for the nation of the Jews, who were rejected of God. This leads him to observe the difference which God made by election between some of the Jews and others, and between the bulk of that people and the Christian Gentiles.

Jonathan Edwards: Hypocrites Deficient in the Duty of Prayer ---New Window
JOB 27:10 "Will he always call upon God?" CONCERNING these words, I would observe, 1. Who it is that is here spoken of, viz. the hypocrite; as you may see, If you take the two preceding verses with the verse of the text. "For what is the hope of the hypocrite, though he hath gained, when God taketh away his soul? Will God bear his cry when trouble cometh upon him? Will he delight himself in the Almighty? Will he always call up on God?"
  Wisdom is justified.


Group 3
(Especially Concerning the Wayward)

Jonathan Edwards: Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God ---New Window
"Their foot shall slide in due time." -Deuteronomy 32:35
In this verse is threatened the vengeance of God on the wicked unbelieving Israelites, who were God's visible people, and who lived under the means of grace; but who, notwithstanding all God's wonderful works towards them, remained (as vers 28.) void of counsel, having no understanding in them.

Jonathan Edwards: Wicked Men Useful in Their Destruction Only ---New Window
Ezekiel 15:2-4 "Son of man, What is the vine tree more than any tree? Or than a branch which is among the trees of the forest? Shall wood be taken thereof to do any work? Or will men take a pin of it to hang any vessel thereon? Behold, it is cast into the fire for fuel; The fire devoureth both the ends of it, and the midst of it is burnt: Is it meet for any work?" The visible church of God is here compared to the vine tree, as is evident by God's own explanation of the allegory, in verses 6, 7, and 8.

Jonathan Edwards: The Vain Self-Flatteries of the Sinner ---New Window
Psalm 36:2 "For he flattereth himself in his own eyes, until his iniquity be found to be hateful." In the foregoing verse, David says, that the transgression of the wicked said within his heart, "that there is no fear of God before his eyes;" that is, when he saw that the wicked went on in sin, in an allowed way of wickedness, it convinced him, that he was not afraid of those terrible judgments, and of that wrath with which God hath threatened sinners If he were afraid of these he could never go on so securely in sin, as he doth.

Jonathan Edwards: Pardon for the Greatest Sinners ---New Window
PSALM 25:11 "For thy name's sake, O Lord, pardon my iniquity; for it is great." IT is evident by some passages in this psalm, that when it was penned, it was a time of affliction and danger with David.

Jonathan Edwards: The Future Punishment of the Wicked Unavoidable and Intolerable ---New Window
EZEKIEL 22:14 "Can thine heart endure, or can thine hands be strong in the days that I shall deal with thee? I the Lord save spoken it, and will do it." IN the former part of this chapter, we have a dreadful catalogue of the sins of Jerusalem; as you may see from the first to the thirteenth verse.

Jonathan Edwards: The Manner in Which the Salvation of the Soul is to be Sought ---New Window
GENESIS 6:22 "Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he." CONCERNING these words, I would observe three things: 1. What it was that God commanded Noah, to which these words refer. It was the building of an ark according to the particular direction of God, against the time when the flood of waters should come; and the laying up of food for himself, his family, and the other animals, which were to be preserved in the ark.
