GRACE TRUTH MINISTRIES
We are a ministry declaring God's Grace in Truth.



---Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables (2 Timothy 4:2-4): ---

I dare say I shall be accounted a fool for spending my money and time for nought. The worldlings about here begin to think there is something particular in my religion that induces me to give up my comfortable house and living, and share the burdens with the poor. Religion is worth nothing, if there be not a power in it. (William Tiptaft)

When one says such things as these, immediately the cry goes up: "Antinomianism!" "Antinomianism!" What does that word "Antinomian" mean? It is from the Greek, "anti" meaning "against", and "nomos" meaning "law" - "against law". We are said to be against the law, but that is not true. We are for the lawful use of the law. That is an important difference. We do not say that men are now free to live as they will, to do as they please, to be licentious; we do not say that for a moment, and so we dispute this charge; we are not Antinomians. We are not for immorality. When others accuse us of being Antinomians, they are really saying that we are teaching that men can lead the most immoral lives, but we do not say that! The charge is a false one. All that we are seeking to do is to make a proper distinction between law and gospel, and how important that is. (Henry Sant)

Moreover, it is a peculiarity of God's people that they cannot mingle with the Heathen, and so peculiar in their worship that they cannot be satisfied with forms and externals. They must worship God in spirit and in truth. They cannot go to the crucifix and the wafer as if these were gods, and take up with the semi-popery with which dear old England is poisoned. No, they would as soon fly to Paganism, or worship the devil himself as do this. (Joseph Irons)

Not long ago I heard of what I call the blasphemy of blasphemies uttered from a Wesleyan pulpit, that Almighty God Himself could never overcome the human will! With the blasphemy of such an assertion there is the rankest folly. None but a religious imbecile would utter so base a contradiction in terms. Surely a disciple of Jesus Christ could not offend the ears of the Father's children, or insult the Almighty with so infamous an utterance. (Thomas Bradbury)

Christ receives the elect from the Father as his children, he receives them as his sheep; we are the sheep of his pasture and the work of his hands, and he will grant us the promised fruit.

"But ye believe not, because ye are not of My sheep, as I said unto you." That is why they did not, why they could not believe!

We are often told by proud, pompous man, that salvation is within the grasp of every man, and that it is the duty of all men to whom the gospel comes to have saving repentance towards God and saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and that if man has not a natural capability of doing these things, God would be unjust in punishing him for sin. Why, were it possible for the devil to feel shame, he would be ashamed of such a doctrine as that. (William Gadsby)

But, although it is true, that all the sins of God's elect are already pardoned for Christ's sake, yet this, good news as it is, will not satisfy a poor perishing sinner.

Oh, my soul, thy covenant God and Father alone can speak the reconciling word, melt thee down at His feet, and bless thee with the rich and overpowering sense of His paternal affection. As the blessed Spirit of adoption moves within, sweetly witnessing to the Father's love and faithfulness, and testifying of the Saviour's love, blood, beauty, and bounty, a little "bubbling up" is known and felt, and the child dares to be free in the presence of the Majesty of heaven, and lisp, "My Father."(Thomas Bradbury)

Them are indeed certain things in religion which human wisdom can attain to. A man by reasoning upon evidences may be persuaded of the truth of revelation; by comparing Scripture with Scripture and bringing forward numerous texts, he may be fully persuaded, in his natural judgment, of the truths of the doctrine of grace. He may see election, predestination and all the doctrines connected with divine sovereignty, clearly revealed in Scripture, so as to give his most unwavering assent and consent to them. He may make many sacrifices in their behalf; he may hear no ministers but those that preach them; he may associate with no persons but those that profess them; he may write books in their defence; he may maintain the strongest arguments from the Word of God that they are true; yet live and die in perfect ignorance of them as made known to his soul by special revelation.(J.

What an unspeakable mercy it is that God raises up and sends forth men to preach, and what a mercy that poor sinners can come and go to hear it; for how many places there are where there is none to speak the word of life, and where thousands sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, not having any to preach it. What follows? What thousands we see in this state, if we look abroad from this favored land! "It is a people," says God, "of no understanding; therefore He that made them will not have mercy on them, and He that formed them will show them no favour." (Isa. 27:11) Blessed are your eyes if they see, and your ears if they hear.(Francis Covell)

Where men will not regard a faithful ministry it is a sign that the Lord is not with them, let their outward deportment be what it may. The beauty and strength of a people consists in preserving that tender union one with another, and with Christ as the living Head. If it pleases God to give his blessing, his presence, and to prosper his cause in any place, it will be displayed by the arm of his strength carrying on the work through all opposition. And he who has begun this will manifestly carry it on to the horrible confusion of all opposers and untender professors. (Phil. 1:6) (James Bourne)

How I have admired that Word often--"Not by might, nor by power;" (Zech. 4:6) and to prove to us that the Word of God is sufficient for everything in the great work of salvation, when Peter is giving a simple statement as to what men are by nature, and what the Son of God came to do in order to save sinners, as he is declaring all the truth of God, what a savour of life unto life (2 Cor. 2:16) it is made to many thousands who cry out, "Men and brethren, what shall we do to be saved?" (Acts 2:37) "The Word" wanted nothing added to it, you see; no persuasion of man. Again, when Stephen stands before the council, what does he say or do? Why, he simply rehearses the truth from the time of Abraham down to the day on which he was speaking; and, hearing those simple, plain truths, they were "cut to the heart, and gnashed upon him with their teeth; and, stopping their ears, they ran upon him with one accord and cast him out of the city and stoned him;" thus proving "the Word" to be to them "a savour of death unto death." (2 Cor. 2:16) (Francis Covell)

The free-willers, the modern evangelicals, and the sandimanians, whose views upon the question the Plymouth Brethren have adopted, and a host of nondescript heretics, are all at sea upon this vital point, and are either in the abyss of darkness or soaring upon the crest of giddy presumption.

Now the law given by Moses pointed to redemption, to salvation. There was a priest to stand between God and the people; there was the atoning blood which he carried into the holiest of all; there was the incense he went in with, there was the blood of beasts, and various different ceremonies, offerings, and so forth, to set forth the Person of Christ, and redemption through Him. And, all through, we find it was redemption by another.(Joseph Orton)

How I have watched people in my time! I have known rich men, with no children, to be some of the worst: they could not spare a shilling for anybody: they were bound up in their wealth, and never could get enough. Have I not told you, it is money, misery, and the curse of God. What a solemn plight to be in! And why do they not communicate to others? Because they have no grace to do it: grace is the gift of God to his children, "It is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given." (Matt. 13:11) They do not do what is right in the sight of God and man for want of saving grace. Who maketh thee and me to differ? What have we that we have not received? Others are objects of pity: and what a mercy to differ by the reigning grace of Almighty God! (Daniel Smart)

This song sets forth the love, union, and communion between Christ and his church. There must be union before there is any communion. The song is written in the way of dialogue, Christ and his church conversing sweetly with each other; and the third parties introduced are the daughters of Jerusalem. Who are they? Weak believers, or babes in grace. "I am black but comely, O ye daughters of Jerusalem." Here the church is speaking under a feeling sense of what she is in herself. I am black in myself, and yet in Christ all fair. "Thou art all fair, my love; there is not spot in thee." (Songs 4:7) This is a great mystery. "I charge you, O ye daughters of Jerusalem, if ye find my beloved, that ye tell him that I am sick of love." (Songs 5:8) Do you know what love sickness is? (John Vinall)

First of all we must speak of the Priest Himself. If I were to speak of any other priests, I should perhaps use severe language, some might think it censorious language. I do not think, however, that it is possible to be too severe or censorious, if we use the strongest language we can upon that subject. But when I speak of this glorious High Priest, whom the high priest under the law typified, and mark what is said concerning Him in this very epistle, under the Divine inspiration, I have a wide field to range over with regard to the description of His person, the excellency of His office, the superiority of His order, the completeness of His work, the great salvation perfected thereby.

but what has responsibility done for me? Cursed me, killed me, condemned me, and if I am left under it only, I shall be damned to all eternity. Human responsibility before, requires of the being himself, of the man or the woman, perfect, sinless obedience, a full and satisfactory atonement. Can you do it? Have you done it? If you have not, your responsibility will curse you, your responsibility will be your destruction. Oh, methinks, if there be one tremendous howl in the bottomless pit more awful than another, one frightful shrick that thrills through the infernal regions more loudly than another, it will be "Responsibility--responsibility has brought me here." I turn from it overwhelmed with awe; I turn from it confident that I can look for nothing but curse and condemnation from creature responsibility: but when I read in my precious book that my Father hath made Jesus to be sin for me who knew no sin, that he hath laid on Him the iniquity of all His sheep, that He has made the demand of Him of payment in full of all the requisitions that stood against His Church, I turn to my Saviour's responsibility, and rejoice to know that He has paid all, conquered all, secured all, demanded all, and imparts all to His Church required for her salvation, and that under solemn and irrevocable responsibility.

It is, therefore, the work of the minister of Christ to take the precious from the vile and the chaff from the wheat, and show the difference between a name to live and life itself; between a sheep and a goat; between foolish virgins with their empty lamps, and wise virgins with oil in their vessels with their lamps; between him that serveth God in newness of spirit, walking in newness of life, and him that serveth God in the oldness of the letter; between those who with their mouth show much love, but at the same time covetousness bears absolute sway in their hearts, and those the apostle speaks of, saying, "Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory." (1 Pet. 1:8) If this is the work of a minister,--and I do not know how a man can show himself approved unto God as a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the work of truth, unless he does attend to these things (James Hallett)

Why shall His name be called "Jesus"? There is a blessed and powerful reason why this name should be given to Him, and that is, "because he shall save his people from their sins. " Not make them an offer and proffer of salvation, if they will accept His mercy and His grace. O no, the Lord Jesus Christ went to the end of the law for righteousness for every one of His people.

Thirst, as a feeling of the soul, in a spiritual sense, is certainly indicative of divine life. It is as impossible, spiritually viewed, for a man dead in sin to thirst after a living God, as for a corpse in the grave-yard to thirst after a draught of cold water from the well. I know for myself that such a feeling as thirsting after God had not place in my bosom, until the Lord was pleased to quicken my soul into spiritual life. I had heard of God by the hearing of the ear; I had seen him in creation, in the starry sky, in the roaring sea, in the teeming earth; I had read of him in the Bible; I had learnt his existence by education and tradition; and I had some apprehensions of his holiness in my natural conscience; but as to any spiritual thirsting after him, any earnest desire to fear him, know him, believe in him, or love him,--no such experience or feeling, I can say for myself, ever dwelt in my bosom. I loved the world too dearly to look to him who made it, and myself too warmly and affectionately to seek him who would bid me crucify and mortify it. A man, therefore, I am well convinced, must be made alive unto God by spiritual regeneration, before he can experience any such sensation as is here conveyed by the figure "thirst," (J. C. Philpot)

THE VESSELS OF WRATH--who they are, and how they are fitted to destruction. The truth contained in these terrific words is hated and despised where the doctrine of election is tolerated. Yes, I say tolerated, because there are many who think and speak as though a sovereign God were obligated to them for their bare notice of the glorious doctrine of election. But I pity from my very heart the preacher--it matters not what his position or acquirements may be--who will keep back any truth of God's Word for the purpose of accommodating his message to any portion of his hearers. Let the testimony be with a "Thus saith the Lord," or, "It is written;" and what the Lord has said or written may I never be ashamed to declare. If God's Word reveals His mind concerning His electing a people in Christ Jesus before the worlds were framed, and has created them for the display of His own glory, and if the necessary consequence attending this marvelous, this glorious, and God-like transaction is that He has eternally reprobated others by leaving them outside the bounds of His grace, by not writing their names in the Lamb's book of life, by not redeeming them with precious blood, by not regenerating them unto life, by not bringing them into the enjoyment of His love: I say, if this be a certain consequence of God's election of a people to grace and glory, I envy not the man who dares to wrap up or hold back that which God has so clearly revealed. It is mine, however, to stand upon the glorious vantage ground of His distinguishing and discriminating truth, and declare it, though I might be forsaken of all men, knowing that a covenant-keeping God will stand by me.

There is no such thing as "Progressive sanctification." It is a master-piece of the enemy. There is a "growing in grace," but there is no such thing as progressive sanctification, which some are preaching and insisting on. Was there any progressive sanctification in Abraham? Any progressive sanctification in Noah? Read his history! Any progressive sanctification in Lot? Was there any progressive sanctification in Peter? Is there any progressive sanctification in the church now? What say you who are now in this house of prayer? If you think so you are deluded by the enemy! And may the very statement I put before you, now extract from your hearts such a device of the devil. There is a growing in grace: there is an increasing in the knowledge of God--that is Scriptural--but there is no such thing as progressive sanctification. (J. J. West)

Now, I say that "God has given to us eternal life"--that is, to the Church, and not to another soul. We must be discriminating in the pulpit. The blood of souls stains deep! Woe be to any man who occupies such a place as I now stand in, if he "keeps back part of the price!" Woe be to him, whoever he be, if, for any consideration whatever,--be it the fear of man or anything else,--he withholds the truth! "Woe be unto you, when all men speak well of you!" (Luke 6:26) (J.

I have said that all those systems which lose sight of these covenant transactions, would make this matter of salvation an after-thought of God, or they would leave the whole thing contingent upon the will of sinful men. Why, if God had sent twelve legions of angels into this world, and if rivers of tears could have run down their cheeks, as they would beseech of men to turn to the Lord, their supplication would have been fruitless. Man's will is steeled against the Lord and His truth: therefore, away with that falsehood and that error which would teach that God is standing as the suppliant before proud man, and that He is waiting till man condescends to lend an ear to Him. These things savor much, methinks of blasphemy. (William Krause)

God never loved his people out of Christ; in fact, he never viewed them out of him. In Christ they were chosen, in Christ they were loved, in Christ they were accepted. May this truth ever be deeply graven in living letters upon our heart, that only as members of the mystical body of the Lord the Lamb do the people of God find favor in the eyes of the Father, for they are only acceptable to him as they are "accepted in the beloved."

What am I to say of the gracious enactments of the counsel of God? My Bible tells me that He ordereth all things after the counsel of His own will. Well, then, there was a counsel, an ancient counsel, a covenant settlement, positive arrangement, fixed decrees, unalterable purposes, predestinating enactments; and all must go on according to those enactments.

The "goodness and tender mercy" of God has followed us, in cutting up and putting a stop to our going about to establish a righteousness of our own. Though it may be very cutting to flesh and blood, yet it is nothing but "goodness and mercy" towards us. For such is God's love to His church and people, that they can never come with approbation into His presence but in His beloved Son. There is no access to God but in and through Christ.

"Thou shalt be called sought out." In Ezek. 34, Christ promises to seek his sheep and search them out. "I am found of them that sought me not:" therefore he must first seek them. "If a man have an hundred sheep, and lose one, doth he not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and goeth after that which was lost till he find it?" (Luke 15:4) When this comes to pass, we know he has found us, by the power we feel; and by power also he brings us back: which, when done, and we are put among the children, he calls his friends, and bids them rejoice: so at the return of a sinner, there is joy in heaven.

Let me now direct your attention to God's revelation of His grace, which is not according to any given rule or order. In tracing the course of a river, sometimes we begin at its source and continue until it loses itself in the ocean. Another time we commence where the river ends and prosecute our tracing up to its source. In God's revelation of Himself we see the river of eternal love flowing in pure and silvery streams. "There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God." (Ps. 46:4) This is sometimes described as flowing from the covenant settlements of eternity past to the covenant consummation in eternity to come. On its bosom are borne elect vessels of mercy filled with grace here, to be swallowed up in wonder, love, and glory hereafter. At other times this river of grace is portrayed from its consummation in glory back to its outburst in JEHOVAH'S sovereign and unchanging decrees, and in the exceeding great and precious promises made to Christ for His people before the worlds were framed.

Give me certainties, or take my Bible and burn it--give me certainties, or never name Christianity in my ears. I bless the Lord that this is where our steadfastness is. Here we can rely. The law urged its demands, Jesus went to the end of the law, met it all, and vowed, while on earth, that not a jot nor tittle should pass away, till all was fulfilled. He did this; and He having accomplished all that the law can claim, the believer in Jesus may look up with confidence and say, "There is now no condemnation to them that are in Christ Jesus." (Rom. 8:1) Blessed, precious gospel! God almighty make you steadfast in it! Has He bruised the old serpent's head? Did He accomplish what the first promise stated concerning Him, and predicted of His perfect work? Certainly he got a bruise at His heel, and His sufferings and sorrows in Gethsemane and on Calvary were marks and proofs of that: but did He not hear the old serpent howl when the cross, wielded by Omnipotence, bruised his head, vanquished the prince of darkness: and rescued the entire election of grace from his grasp? "I will contend with them that contend with thee, and I will save thy children," (Isa. 49:25) was the promise, and, consequently, "the lawful captive shall be delivered, and the prey shall be taken from the mighty." He has done it. Had He not done it, would He have dared to say on the cross, in His expiring moments, "It is finished?" (Joseph Irons)

You and I stand on the verge of an eternal world, and unless God himself say to the soul, "I am thy salvation," we must eternally perish. The great body of professors of religion are quite satisfied in talking about or hearing of a salvation. They tell us what great salvation God has accomplished for us, if we will but close in with it, if we will but do our part; Nothing will then do for the soul short of the Lord speaking, and saying to such a soul, "I am thy salvation."

It rested first upon the general ground of God's faithfulness--that he would be faithful to his word and his oath as made in and ratified by an everlasting covenant. This covenant is "ordered in all things and sure," (2 Sam. 23:5) and contains a special promise made in it to the Son of his love: "My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips. Once have I sworn by my holiness that I will not lie unto David. His seed shall endure for ever, and his throne as the sun before me." (Ps. 89:34-36) According to the tenor of the promise in the eternal covenant, none of the elect can ever perish, or otherwise the seed of the spiritual David would not endure for ever. (J. C. Philpot)

It is a salvation revealed in a living, glorified Man, who is also the Mighty God--a salvation brought home to the hearts of God's children by the exceeding greatness of His mighty power. "How shall we escape if we neglect so great salvation?" Escape what? Some would say, How shall we escape the wrath of God and the damnation of hell? I say nothing of the kind. We who have this salvation are saved from hell, and exempt from the wrath of God. (Thomas Bradbury)

"And in every place incense shall be offered unto My Name, and a pure offering." It is the purity of the offering that constitutes its value. We find that God is very pure and very holy; He condemned the Jews for their offerings because they offered in sacrifice beasts that had blemishes. People say nowadays that we are too strict; but the Lord is a very strict God, and that is the God with whom we have to do. We see in Leviticus that before the sacrifices were offered they had to be carefully scrutinized by the priest and the inward parts laid open. What we offer God must be a pure offering; where are we to find it? (John Booth)

Well, then, mark, that He was upon His high throne long before He descended--settled all things pertaining to the worlds He made by His own fixed decrees, as well as upheld all things by the word of His power. All was settled. There is no such word as chance or accident in the Christian's vocabulary. The ancient settlements of the Divine mind drew the entire map of creation and time, and marked every spot, every individual circumstance, as well as every individual person, that should inhabit this globe, and what part they should act on it. All was set down. "He hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil." (Prov. 16:4) And "is there evil in a city, and the Lord hath not done it?" (Amos 3:6) My hearer, I fear we often too much overlook the ancient and eternal right of Jesus on His throne with His Father. (Joseph Irons)

Before justification, all was confusion, guilt, sin, and the sentence of a broken law in the conscience, with the accusation of Satan, fear of death, and dread of judgment; but the work of righteousness shall be peace, and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever; (Isa. 32:17) so that if a man is once pardoned by the blood and righteousness of Christ, he is sure to have peace in his conscience; but before this, his conscience is the principal accuser.

I do not like it at all. Candle religion, wax religion, water religion, wafer religion, woman religion, all manner of odd things and materials are put forth in these days as Christianity.

Preserved in Him, from death, while in their unregenerate state; even though exposed to innumerable dangers, brought to the gates of the grave by the raging fever, or wasting consumption, they are "preserved in Jesus Christ," and through all time, they are preserved in Him, from the curse of God, the condemnation of His holy law, the avenging sword of divine justice, the malevolence of Satan, and the inbred corruption of their own hearts, which are "deceitful above all things and desperately wicked," and from all the complicated evils introduced into the world by sin.

Faithfulness was never more necessary than at the present period; and he that is enabled to be faithful will be considered legal, if not an Arminian, by some; and some will say that he is an Antinomian. But men's fancies and wild ideas, uttered ever so gravely or dogmatically, must not be heeded by the servant of God; he is accountable to his Master and not to men. (Henry Fowler)

Now, it must be observed, in the first place, with respect to their secret character, that their being sheep arises from the everlasting, immutable, and unchangeable love of a Triune Jehovah, Father, Son, and ever-blessed Spirit; and this love is variously described, set forth, and exhibited by the Trinity in Unity; as the Father's love in the gift of His dear Son; the Son's love in laying down His life for poor, perishing sinners; and the Spirit's love in teaching, leading, and guiding them into all truth, and testifying of Christ. (John Hobbs)

Before proceeding to our second question, I wish to observe that there is a difference between Justification and the pardon of sin. These two subjects are frequently very closely connected, and yet there is a difference between them. They may go together, and still, they are not the same. Pardon is not justification; neither is justification pardon. A person who is pardoned is treated as a transgressor; but a person who is justified is declared righteous. A person who is pardoned, is freed from the obligation of suffering for his crimes; but a person who is justified, is declared worthy of life, because of his innocence. (James Battersby)
