Girdle of Truth: Volume 10

" I write unto you, children" [not " little children," but all saints], " because your sins are forgiven you for his name's sake." It is a settled thing; you are not Christians at all without your sins are forgiven you. The poor jailor wanted {s
All God's ways now are presenting His moral manifestation. It will next be His judicial manifestation. If the moral manifestation is not received, " the word that I have spoken shall judge him at the last day." The Lord did not accompany the word
Is there not a lack of a due knowledge of the Father in most saved souls?-a lack of the knowledge of their relationship as sons?-a want of filial affection and of communion with the name, and grace, and love of our heavenly Father? Surely there
I desire to present a few thoughts on the subject of the authority of Scripture, and the grounds on which it claims to be received by us as divine.

The testimony connected with Joseph properly begins from the time he is made governor of Egypt; and this event occurred shortly after the death of Isaac. Jacob is now dwelling in the land wherein his father was a stranger. Isaac
How varied and precious are the " considerations" set before us in the Epistle to the Hebrews, striking chord after chord in our hearts, and producing note after note of praise! In the first chapter the personal and official dignities and glories of the Lord {s
Popery knows how to make use of the loosening of men's minds from the authority of Scripture, which is now so extensively going on. Infidelity in every form is only negative in its character. But the human mind is not formed to find a rest
