"We're going to have tribulations in our life. Especially, if were granted a long life, we will go through something at some point or another in we have to surrender it all to Christ Charles spurgeon is hands down my favorite preacher that has ever lived. He is known as the Prince of preachers. He saw three special purposes of God in his personal struggle with depression. The first is that it served like the Apostle Paul's thorn to keep him humble. Lest. He'd be lifted up in himself. He said the Lord's work is summed up in these words. Not by might nor by power but by my spirit say at the Lord, instruments shall be used but their intrinsic weakness shall be clearly manifested. There shall be no division of the glory not diminishing of the honor due to great worker those who are honored of their Lord in public have usually had to endure a secret Chesney or to carry a particular crossed lest by any means, they exalt themselves in fall into the snare of the devil. spurgeon basically is saying what the Apostle Luke said.

An Excerpt from the book Flirting with Darkness by Ben Courson

"An excerpt from the book flirting with darkness. Ben. Carson. Weapon number three, the magic number of greatness. I got to a point in my struggle with depression where something needed needed to change must suffering. So badly, I finally decided to do something about it. The ten thousand hour rule saved my life. His Book Outliers Malcolm Glad well demonstrated that to be truly greeted anything. You have to put in ten thousand hours of practice. People such as world chess champion Bobby. Fischer businessman Bill Joy, and IBM founder Bill Gates are among the many examples. Glad. While gives of people who excelled because they accelerated they focused and worked hard and gave at least ten thousand hours to becoming the best at what they did. Glad will show that whether you want to be a fiction writer or master criminal. Hockey player or a pianist ten thousand hours was the magic number of greatness. Bent my mind to that goal is a writer Manspeaker. A resolved to stop wasting my energies, processing psychological trauma and to go on a diametrically opposed direction. Instead of disappearing over why dreams weren't coming to pass, I decided to commit myself to working my fingers to the bone to ensure they did. Psychologists, John Hayes quote looked at how long it took the best composers of all time to create their first grey work. He found that nobody including Mozarts was a child prodigy had produced a piece of work of any significance until about ten years after they had I, taken music no amount of innate talent even in a field of genius such as music could overcome the years of practice necessary to Korea work someone may be talented. They may be lucky but they still have to go through ten years of practice in order to become a master and quote. When Churchill came to power during World War Two he said this as he was being inaugurated into office as prime. Minister quote. I. Offer you nothing save blood, toil tears, and sweat and quo. Lecture Chill Ready to go to battle anew, the path will be difficult PROC- ready to claim own finest hour. Getting better stars, which is getting off your tuition in doing something. So I did. My goal was to become a writer and a speaker put in the needed hours. My nearly worked myself to death, but it was infinitely better than brooding found the effort. Cathartic in fulfilling my spirit's began to lift. I figured I had two options number one either get discouraged that my dreams were not coming pass or number to spend the effort of getting prepared for when they did. Legendary preacher Charles spurgeon advised students to stop worrying about when they would get their shot at speaking and concentrate instead on their ability, and they'll let God take the opportunity in other words quit fretting over the how and focus on the what I took these words to heart and focused on my skill set as I improved my craft, our English word amateur comes from a French Italian an line route which means to love an obvious works when he loves the process and it feels good a professional is someone who worked seven days a week whether he feels like it or not. Today. My TV show hope generation is on twenty different networks more than one hundred and eighty countries and radio shows heard on more than four hundred stations daily. I get to speak in stadiums and arenas. My quote unquote overnight success came through hours of hard work. How you'll spend your ten thousand hours may be different from how I spend mind but you'll find as I did a clear focus and a way of getting off the existential treadmill of despair, transform your life but the age of twenty one, the average American has put ten thousand hours of practice into computer and video games when I use those hours for something more productive. How hard you hustle in the darkness determines how brightly you shine in the spotlight. To prepare for speaking to people I got really good at lecturing my furniture. My chairs were my captive audience I remember that Billy Graham. One said he got his start by preaching to alligators before he preached in stadiums. You have to start with a small stuff and work your way up. So I took every opportunity that presented itself. I spoke to classes of little kids and homeless shelters at old folks, homes, and to student clubs I volunteered to take the opportunities. Others turned down, I got lots of practice. When other speakers turned an organization or church down my said, yes I did this I several years Only the small minded person will refuse the small task for me if I had an audience of four people those enough to get some more practice to put in some more hours toward my ten thousand our goal. Jesus said that if you're faithful and a few small things, you'll be given responsibility over bigger ones Matthew Twenty five that sound good to me. Yes sometimes I did feel like surface the tragic here of Greek mythology who had to roll a boulder of a hill only to see roll back down then roll it back up again only for it to roll back down again repeatedly, I'll stubborn in my pursuit it was a great weapon against despair to keep working in spite of how I felt, which puts me in the mind of a scene from Tolkien's the Lord of the Rings in the First Book of that trilogy the Fellowship of the Ring, a band of warriors is commission travel to the ends of the Earth to destroy the evil ring of power by casting it into mount doom. During their long journey. Gandalf who was their leader was thought to be killed in the minds of Maurya in response airborne stepped up to lead the band in his stead amid his grief and despair he cried out farewell Gandalf what hope have we with you then he turned to the fellowship and said, we must do without hope let us gird ourselves and weep no more come. We have a long road. Like that trek to mount doom healing is usually a long journey. We normally don't start feeling better overnight sometimes, we must go on when we feel absolutely no hope. Our quest leads down a winding path and his sometimes fraught with trolls and Goblins and all manner of Dr Treasures. But psychological heroism is possible in such journey is were taking like Eric Gordon Frodo my set my foot upon my own path out of depression I gave them my flirtation with darkness and began to tread the road toward a grand purpose and it worked after many many years. The Dreams I had begun to despair finally came true new ones came into sight, but it all began by putting one foot in front of the other. If you allow yourself to just sit around and partly catatonic state stuffing yourself with junk food is a form of therapy and watching callous hours of television. You'll probably never start feeling better. But I. Tell You that you get off the couch and venture into the world to do something toward your goals. Things will start to change in your heart and mind if you pull yourself out of bed and get going on your dreams, that's how you'll will begin the journey to healing your broken spirit.

What was Before the Beginning?

"Most people start reading genesis they, they don't stop to go what was happening before the beginning right in saying and she's ready. The. Question to the book, start the Genesis starts realtime action with the beginning I mean. So you're already in the flow of it. So this is kind of stepping back and saying, okay well, what was happening before that actually started? So who was there? I mean They're a bunch of stuff going on. There are a bunch of people there. was there a big you know meeting talk about it with turtles way down who was there? Yes. So The way I understand it I think the way the Bible describes it is there was nothing everything is dark for was void try to. If you can nothingness like nothing nothing nothing nothing other than got. Got The. Only thing that there is got is the only thing that is a being that is in existence in he is entirely created actually had somebody asking me question the other day here at the church. I pastor now and they said jt glad you're here I've wrestled. This is a this is a kind of an older saints who've been walking the Lord for forty fifty years. And he said to me, he said agent at this intellectual question for the entirety of my walk with the Lord. Laird, God come from. In ease asking the question like who made godwit gut come into being, and that's a very common question in the Christian response to this is God didn't come from anything didn't start anywhere. He is the thing that is probably most distinct about God in this is what we learned last year in the apostles creed is that he is the maker he is the he is the one who has unmade. His created exists entirely distinctly enough himself in Trinidadian relationship father son and Holy Spirit. So the first thing we want to say before we even get into Tyrian ISM if you want to go down that path is before anything. got. Yup. Yeah. That's and it's pivotal because specifically when we're talking about who got is reference to these first chapters of Genesis, we often use the language of creator creature distinction right exactly, and that might be one of the most important distinctions. Bible makes in that we have in theology is that God is entirely. In of himself yeah. Absolutely. that. He is qualitatively different. Than anything else he is utterly unique. As. One of the ways when I teach this that I get people to sort of have this hit home as I say, right you gonNa make a chart and on one side you're gonNA. Label call them things that are created and then on the other side you're GonNa label it things that are created and then on the left hand side things that are created for you right? Right God. And then on the right hand side where you're going to write. Everything else like there's there's nothing that was not the did not That does not have got us its origin. Yeah. Yeah. So We. Start there with talking about God is Creator in Genesis clearly displaying this, that God is creator everything else is created but who is this guy jt? You mentioned it kind of when you were talking about that. This is trinity right God his father son and Holy Spirit, and so are we talking about three different gods up they're all discussing with one another are we in collaborating with one another are we talking about one God who has three different roles? Who are we talking about when we're talking about this God who is Father Son and Holy Spirit? Yes. I think there's just clues that are given to us in genesis some people like to go to genesis worn twenty six or the texts says, let us which shows some kind of divine plurality. There's lots of ways to to interpret probably better for us on suggest to go to the New Testament Charles spurgeon has analogy where he talks about God has always been trinity, but it's kind of like walking into a room where there's furniture everywhere in the old. Testament, the lights are off in a new testament. You're turning the lights on none of the furniture was placed there during the New Testament it was there the whole time, but you can now see it better. So canonical, it's actually probably better for us to to move our way backwards if God is if there's only one God. In he is trinity and that's what we see clearly in the New Testament in the churches confessions than that must be the same God who existed before creation, and so the way that we understand Trinitaria relations in the New Testament is that there are three persons in one God. Our definition for Trinidadian is is that God eternally exists as one essence in three distinct persons, each of whom are fully God yet, there's only one God so. Policy for a second. Could you could you go back and say our definition of the trinity is just kind of repeat that real slowly? Yes. So our definition of the Trinity is God. Eternally exists supposing there that he that's what we've just been talking about. He is eternal. He has not come into being he is the Creator and maker of all things. So so always been always will be it's right. Okay and and never will never came into existence never has ceased existing never will cease to exist

It's your destiny to have an enemy who fights against you as you seek to live for the glory of God. And so you must bear the shield of faith and believe the words of your father.

"So let's talk about the process of us being transformed and us us us experiencing this piece and then us abiding in this piece step one. Romans chapter twelve versus one into. Policies I appeal to you therefore, brothers by the mercies of God to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do. Not Be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewal of your mind that by testing, you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and is perfect. You see you even hear a little bit of six and Paul talking about the the belt of truth in Romans chapter twelve versus one and two. Because he's actually talking about that. You cannot go on thinking in the patterns of this world. In fact, the patterns of this world have to be removed from the way that you look at the world and from the way that you think and only then will your mind be renovated transformed so that you can find the peace of God. And so this is the process that leads to peace. Paul has just spent eight chapters from chapter one to Romans Chapter. Eight. Telling US The Gospel, of Jesus Christ the sin that separated us from. God. The faith in Jesus is finished work now makes us right with God and as we what he's telling US Romans chapter twelve is to think about the Gospel consider what Jesus has done for. You ponder about the mercies of God don't settle for somebody else's explanation of the Gospel. Dig into the word of God worship God for His grace rejoice in Jesus. For his victory praise your father for redemption and forgiveness. This is what Paul is saying is the first step in Romans chapter twelve verse one is to consider the mercies of God and as you do the spirit takes this knowledge of the reality of Jesus Work and uproots deception. UNBELIEV doubts distortions you see the spirit knows your enemy better than you do and his work as you abide in Christ as you abide in the word of God, his work will give you the stability in the face of the attack in the face of attacks old British preacher Charles spurgeon spurgeon said rough roads gross smooth when.

And we know that the judgment of God rightly falls upon those who practice such things. But do you suppose this? Oh Man, when you pass judgment on those who practice such things, and do the same yourself that you will escape the judgment of God. Or do you think lightly? This is the key. Do you think lightly of the riches of his kindness and tolerance and patience, not knowing that the kindness of God lead you to repentance?.

We hope to teach the word, but again you can never really go deep into the word without starting to lose a lot of people now I realize that there are some large churches that go deep into the word that are that just are able to preach deep theology and theology is nothing more than the study of God and to lay out different doctrines and areas of the word that could go deep. Some could be shallow. Some could be in between, but there are some churches that can do those things in that are still large churches in. They're not putting on a circus or an act or a Rodeo or or some major production to be able to keep people so. The there are exceptions to the rule..

"We know that Christ praise for us. And we know host pre through US but it hearkens back to what Charles spurgeon, said he 'cause spurgeon hesitated to become a believer, because he was not sure he can remain faithful to the end he saw others proverbially fall away, but here's what he said. He said I longed and prayed to find Christ. Because I knew that. If I found him, he would not give me a temporary. Such some preach, but he would give me turn a life I would never be lost. That was a bait. My soul could not resist and he came to realize he submitted to Christ. He couldn't be lost. And he said he will hold onto me forever, and it wasn't a matter of spurgeon holding onto Jesus. It was a matter of Jesus holding onto spurgeon, and if he's holding onto us glen he's going to. To bring us to the very end, he's going to persevere right all the way to the glorification, although justified, they're all glorified, and so if got his saved you, he's giving you a taste of heaven that one day will be fully realized you're just. You're just getting a taste right now. You just got the Diamond Ring A. You didn't get the wedding been and and the marriage yet. You're just a waiting. For what's coming to you and it's GonNa be more than you could ever imagine i. Mean No, I seen or heard. What things the Lord has in store for those who love him. I mean. Can you imagine as far as what he did? In our own lives now so his preserving grace means you could never be lost again because his grace isn't just sabe US it keeps us save, and just a certain, as it is to spend eternity in heaven this very moment as if we already spent ten thousand years with the rest of the saints. We persevered worshiping together him who is seated at the throne. We have a foretaste of that even right now. But why why do you think many people think that they can just? I lose my salvation. I mean again. It just makes God sounds so fickle almost like the Roman gods, and the Greek gods and the gods. Just makes God not sound like the God of scripture, because I just don't see any verses in scripture that someone could be lost. What what? I have a little bit of a Gal, so you know I. I've always thought obviously. There's some legitimate reasons to question. I've question sure you've question, but there are some cynical reasons to question so one reason that comes to mind my heart is evil and I've thought these things is okay. I don't really think. I don't really think the Kingdom of God. But I see these other guys doing bad things, and they seemed like they took time off, and they came back. So that means it's okay for me to continue doing this, and because hey, it's there's there's backsliding ano- and there's some people who were away for several years, and they came back, and it's a way to kind of justify the continuation.

"Jesus Christ and believe on him. Now that is just the lack of these times where whereas earnestness now it's neither in the pulpits nor yet in the Pew as much as we need it and it is a sad sad age when earnestness is sculptor. And when that very zeal which ought to be. The prominent characteristic of the pulpit is regarded his enthusiasm and fanaticism. I go to make us all such fanatics as most men laugh at to make us all. Just such an says many despise we reckon it the greatest fanaticism in the world to go to hell the greatest enthusiasm upon to love sin better than righteousness and we think those neither fanatics nor enthusiasts who seek to obey goal rather man and follow. Christ in on his way. He's repeat that one proof the church wants. Revival is the absence of that death like sonum earnestness which was once seen in Christian pulpits. The absence of sound doctrine is another proof on need for revival. Do you know who are called. Anti no means now who called pipers who were laughter to a rejected as being unsound in the faith. Why the mend that. Once with the Orthodox now the heretics we can turn back the records of our puritan fathers to the articles of the Church of England to the preaching of Whitfield. And we can say that preaching. It is the very thing we love. But because we choose choose to reclaim them we are thought singular strange the reason is because some doctrine has to a great degree ceased. It began this way first of all. All the truths were fully believed. The little angles were taken off. The minister believes election. Didn't use the word for fear it should in some degree. Disturb the peace of the Deacon in the Green Pew in the corner. He believed that all men would deprave but he didn't say it out loud because if he did there was a lady who had subscribed to the Chapel. She would not come again so that while he did believe it and did. Satan some sense. He rounded it just a little an offer when it came to. This minister said we believe these auctions but we do not see them profitable to preach to the people that quite true free grace. It's true the great doctrines of race that were once preached by Christ by pull by Augustine by Calvin and down to this age by their successes. But they'd better be kept back. They must be cautiously dealt with. They're very deep and dreadful doctrines and they must be preached. We BELIEVE THEM. But We dan speak them out and then after that it came something worse they said within themselves well if these doctrines will not do for us to preach perhaps they are not truthful and going one step further. They said they dare not preach them. They did not actually say it but they began just a hint that they weren't true then they went one step further giving us something which they said was the truth and then they would cost us out of the synagogue as if they were the rightful owners of it and we were the intruders. So they've passed on from bad to worse and if you read the standard divinity of this age and the stunned divinity of Whitfield's Day you will find that the two cannot by any possibility stand together. We have got a new field. Edgy new theology. Why does anything butter theology? It is an allergy which is cast out God utterly and tiredly and enthroned man as it is the doctrine of man nor the doctrine of the everlasting God we want to revival of sound doctrine once more in the midst of the land and the Church Law needs a revival of down Roy earnestness in its members. You are not the men to fight the Lord's battles yet. You let earnestness this zeal. Which wants the children of God Hat? Your forefathers were Okun you we all people what many of them strong in doctrine when they are with strong doctrine men but they waiver when they get with others and they changes often as they changed their company. They're sometimes one thing and sometimes another they not the men to go to the steak and Dr. They are not the men that know how to die daily and so a ready for death when it comes look at our prayer metex with their abroad exception go in a there were six women. Scarcely ever enough members come to pray four times. Look at them prayer meetings. They're called sped meetings. They ought to be cooled for specially enough there attended and very few there go to our fellowship meetings or to any other meetings that we have to help one another in the fear of the Lord attended to. I'd like to see a newspaper printed somewhere containing list of all the people that went to these meetings during the week. In any of our chapels my friends. If they should comprise all the Christians in London you might find that a chapel of to hold them all. There are few enough that go. We don't have earnestness and we don't have life as once we odd if we. We should be called worse names than we are. We should have violent names thrown at us if we were more true twirl master. We should not have all things quite so comfortable. If we serve God better we are getting the church to be an institution of our land an honorable institution. Something a grand thing. When the Church becomes an honorable institution only think shows the churches swerved when she begins to be very honorable in the eyes of the Lord. She must still be cost out. She must still be cool evil and still be despised until that day will come when Lord on her because she has honored him even in this world in the day of his appearing beloved. Do you think he true the. Church one surviving. Yes no no you say the extent that you suppose we think the church is in good condition. We are not among those who cry the former days better than these. But you're not. You may be far wiser than we are. And therefore you're able to see those various signs of goodness which are to us so small that we are not able to discover them. You may suppose the church is in good condition if so of course you cannot sympathize with me in preaching from such a text urging you to such a prayer but there are others of you who are frequently prone to Croix needs reviving. Let me bid you. Instead of grumbling at your minister instead of finding fault with all the different parts of the Church to Cry Lord Revive. Your work says one if we had another minister over if we had another kind of worship if we had a different sort of preaching justice if it is it is over if the Lord with come into the hearts of the men have got if he would make the forms you do use full of power you do not want fresh ways of fresh machinery. You need life in what you have. There is an engine on a railway. A train has to be moved. Bringing other engine says one and another and another the engines brought up at the train doesn't move it to light the fire and the steamer. That is what you lack. Not Fresh engines. We do not want fresh ministers or fresh plans or fresh ways or fresh expressions though many might be invented to make the church better we only want life in what we have got a given the very man who has emptied your chapel given the self same person brought your prayer meeting low. God can make the chapel crowded to the doors yet and give thousands of souls so that very man. It is not a new. This is needed. It is the life of God in Him. Do not be crying out. Something new it know. More succeed of itself than what you have cry. Oh Lord revive your work. I've noticed in different churches that the minister has thought. First of this contrivance. None of that one. He's tried one plan and thought that would succeed. Then he tried. Mount wasn't keep to the old plan but get life in it. We do not need anything new. The old is better. Let us keep to it. But we want life in the old. Oh and cry. We have nothing but the shell. They're going to give us a new shell service. We will keep the old one the old thing but we must or else we throw the old away. Let's have life in the old that God would give us life. The church wants fresh revivals. A roofer the days of Kemba slang again when Whitfield preached power over the days. When in this place hundreds were converted sometimes under Whitfield sermons? It's been known that two thousand credible cases of conversion have happened under single sermon over the age. When I should be strained ear should be ready to receive the word of God and when men drink in the word of life since it is the very water of life which God gives to dying souls. For the age of deep feeling the age of deep thoroughgoing earnestness lettuce our score for it that is plead with him for it for C. Has the man or the men somewhere who will shake the world yet preps even now he is about to pull for the mighty influence upon men which will make the churches is wonderful in this age as it ever was in any age that has passed dot granted. For Christ's sake there's a part in the serving he goes. I know you're not all saved. Look at the crime. Stats of London. How can you all believers of crime is so high? Read the newspapers. It doesn't say those exact words we pretty much says that to them and it's such an amazing way to talk to your audience. Such a truthful an honest. Look at his people. He doesn't just assume they know God he goes look. I'm looking around me. I'm seeing the fruit and I see the crime stats. How can you be Christians? I A we say this a thousand times on the show but imagine a minister looking at his congregation and saying look you criminals. You can't be Christians if you're going to be acting like this. I also think that that is so there's truth there and there's a way of just speaking the truth and being blunt and being honest and not telling them what they need what they want to hear but telling them what they need to hear because if you want them to grow up into become Christians that are going to change the world and actually make a difference be remembered they need to be told the truth about themselves which is look. You're not producing fruit. That looks like Christian believing fruit and I really love the way Charles spurgeon does that I love the way he just goes after them and I really hope that that that continued desire will be in the church that we have not grown soft on telling people the Real Truth of the Gospel and who we really are which is centers. Yeah one of the reasons. I love revived thoughts looking at all these different areas. One of the things I find interesting is that every pastor always thinks that their generation is one of the most sinful generations you know even in today's society. It's not uncommon at all to hear a pastor. Salem look around us look look how often societies looks us and Florida's and I mean realistically. We were fallen people. Every generation is as fallen as the previous generation. But I do think it's interesting that spurgeon there's a point in there where he talks about how it's fashionable to go to church like he saying that everyone goes to church now. No one has taken this seriously. And what's more is that? It's it's a front. It's a disguise. He's so good with his poetry. He says at one point at the outside of the tombs may have become wider but within the bones are just as rotten as before saying that the these these people are going to church. They look like they're being spiritual but inside their bones are just as Rawdon as the rest of society and I mean that's kind of in contrast to current society where you know. More and more people are becoming unchurched there outside of the Church and people look at that and say what a central generation but here spurdens looking at people going to church and saying what is generation. It's just it's just it's fascinating to see people's view on humanity and how you know whatever era. Whatever time we're in we're.

"I cannot understand how your piety can be of any brilliant order if you can live without the sunlight of Christ and yet be happy. Christians will sometimes lose the realization of Jesus the connection between themselves and Christ will at times be severed as their own conscious enjoyment of it but they will always grown in cry when they lose their. Jesus what is Christ your brother? Does he live in your house and yet you have not spoken to him for a month. I fear there is little love between you and your brother for you have had no conversation with him for so long. What is Christ the husband of you his church and has she had no fellowship him? For All this time brothers let me not condemn you. Let me not even judge you but let your conscience speak mine will and so will yours have. We not too often forgotten. Christ have we not lived too much without him. Have we not been contented with the world instead of desiring? Christ have we being all of us like that little lamb? Drink out of the Masters Cup and feed from his table. Have we rather been contend to stray upon the mountains feeding anywhere but at home? I many of the troubles of our hearts spring from lack of communion with Jesus. Not many of us are the kind of men who living with Jesus. His secrets must know. Now we live too much without the light of his countenance and too happy when he's gone from us. Let us each of us. I'm sure we have each of us. Need in some measure. Put up the prayer Lord. Revive your work. I think I hear one professor saying Sir. I need no revival in my heart. I am everything I wished to be down on your knees. My brother down on your knees for that one. He is the man that most needs to be prayed for. He says that he needs no revival in his soul but he needs a revival of his humility to start if he supposes that he is all that he ought to be and if he knows that he is all he wishes to be well he has very small motions of what a Christian is or what a Christian should be those who are in the best condition who while they know they need reviving yet feel their condition and grown under it and pray to the Lord to revive them. Now I think I have in some degree. Proven my charge. I fear with arguments too strong. Now let me know. Cisco text has something in it which I trust that each of us has here is not only an evil employed in these words. Lord revive your work but there is an evil evidently felt you see havoc knew how to grown about it. Oh Lord he said revive your work. Many of us want revival but few of US feel that we want. It is a blessed sign of life within when we know how to grown overall departures from the living. God It is easy to find by hundreds. Those that have departed but you must count those by ones twos who know how to grown over their departure. The true believer however when he discovers he needs revival will not be happy he will begin once the incessant and continuous strain of cries and groans. Which will at last prevail with gold. I'm bring the blessing of revival down. He will days and nights in succession cry. Oh Lord revive your work. Let me mention some groaning times which will always occurs at the Christian who needs revival. I am sure he will always grown when he looks upon what law did for him of old when he recollect the misers. Herman's and those places where the Lord appeared of all to him. Saying I have loved you with an everlasting love. I know he will never look back to them without. Here's if he is what he should be as a Christian or if he thinks he is not in the right condition he will always weep when he remembers God's loving kindness of old whenever the soul has lost fellowship with Jesus it cannot bear to think of the chariots of minute DAB. It cannot endure to think of the Banqueting House for it has not been there so long and when it does think of it it says where is the blessed nestling you and I? I saw the Lord. Where is the so refreshing view of Jesus and his word wop peace flowers? I then enjoyed. How sweet that memory still. But now I find an aching for eat. The world never feel when one who is in this state. Here's a sermon. Which regards the glorious experience of the believer who is in a healthiest state? He will put his hand upon his heart and say such was my experience once but those happy days are gone. My son is set those stores which once lit up my darkness. A rule quenched owe might again behold him over that I might once more see his face for those sweet visits from on high over those Grapes of Escola ones more. And by the rivers of Babylon you will sit down. And we you will weep when you remember your goings up to when the Lord was precious to you when he laid bare his heart and was pleased to fill your heart with fullness of his love such times will be groaning times. When you remember the years of the right hand of the most high again to a Christian who wants revival ordinances will also be groaning times. He will go up to the house of gold but he will save himself when he comes away. How different when I once went with the multitude that kept holy day every word was precious when the song ascended my soul had wings and flew to its nest upon the stars when the prayer was offered I devoutly say are men but now the preacher preaches as he did before my brethren as profited as they were before but the sermon is drawing me. Dull I find no fault with the preacher. I know the foltz myself. The song is just the same and sweet the melody as pure harmony. But my heart is heavy. My heartstrings a broken and I cannot say and the Christian returned from these blessed means of grace sighing and sobbing because he knows he wants revival most. Especially at the Lord's supper. He will think when he sits at the table. What seasons I once had here in breaking the bread and drinking the wine. Mima most was present. He will think to himself how his soul was even carry to the seventh heaven and the House was made the very house of God and the Gate of Heaven but now he says but it is bred drawing bread to me it is wine tasteless wine with none of the sweetness of paradise in it. I drink but all innovate. No thoughts of Christ. My heart will not rise. My soul can throw a thought halfway to him and then the Christian will begin to grow again Lord Revive your work but I will not detain you upon the subject. Those of you who know that you were in Christ but feel that you are not in desirable condition because you do not love him. Enough have not faith in him which you desire to have. I would just ask you this. Do you grown over it. Can you grow now when you feel your heart is empty is an aching void? When you feel that your garment sustained can you wash those garments tears when you think your Lord is gone? Can you hang out the black flag of sorrow and cry? Oh Jesus Jesus where have you gone? Then I bid you do it. Do It do it and may be to give you grace to continue to do it until happier. Era will in the reviving of your soul. My last thought upon this point that the soul when he's really brought to feel its own cider state because of its departure from God is never content without turning its groening's into prayer without addressing the prayer to the right place. Oh Lord revive your heart some of you perhaps will say so. I feel my need of revival and I intend to set to work this very afternoon as soon as I retire from this place to revive my soul. Do not say it and above all things do not try to do it for you will never do it. Make no resolutions as to what you will do. Your resolutions will certainly be broken as they're made and your broken resolutions will bus. Increase the number of your sins. I warn you instead of trying to revive yourself to offer press. Don't say I will revive myself but cry Lord Revive Your Works and let me solemnly tell you you have not yet felt what it is decline. You do not yet know how side is your estate. Otherwise you wouldn't talk of reviving yourself. If you did truly know your own position you would assume. Expect to see the wounded soldier on the battlefield. Hugh himself without medicine or convey himself to the hospital when his limbs are shot. Away as you would expect to revive yourself without the help of God I bid you not do anything not seek to do anything until first of all you have addressed Jehovah himself by mighty prayer until you have cried out Lord your work. Remember he that I made. You must keep you alive and he has kept you alive must restore more life to you. He has preserved you from going down to the pit when your feet have been sliding canalone. Loan set you again. Upon a rock and establish goings. Begin by humbling yourself and giving up all hope of reviving yourself as a Christian but beginning at once with foam prayer and earnest supplication to God. Oh Lord was cannot do you must do a Lord revive your work Christian Brothers Leave. These matters with you. Give them the attention they deserve. If I have heard and judged you too harshly God will forgive me for I have meant it honestly but if I have spoken truly treasury turn your hearts. We men apart and women apart husbands apart and wives apart where we weep my brother. It's it is a sad thing to depart from the living. God We bring you back to Zion. The may one day return like Israel not with the weeping but with songs you've ever lasting joy now I come to the second part of the subject upon which I must be more brief in the church self taken as a body. This prayer ought to be one incessant and solemn litany Lord revive your work in the present era there is a sound decline of the vitality of godliness. They say has become too much the age of Shanto. Instead of the age of life. I date the hour of life from this day. One hundred years ago when the first stone was laid of this building in which we now worship God then was the day of life divine and of power sin down from on high gold had clothed Whitfield with power. He was preaching with a majesty in the might of which one could scarcely think mortals could ever be capable logo because he was anything in himself but because his master good at him with might ofter Whitfield there were a succession of great and holy men but now serves we have fallen upon the dregs of time. Men are the rarest things in this world. We have not many left now. We have no men in the government hardly to conductor polo six and scarcely any men in religion. We have things that perform their duties. We have the GOUDEN. Perhaps the honest things who in the regular routine go one like packhorses with their bells but men who des to be singular because to be singular is generally to be right in a wicked world. Not Very many is age compared with the cure. Tonic Times even Wairoa Devine's could we marshall together our house Darshana CTS. Could we gather together such names? I could mention about fifty. It's time I think not. Nor could we bring together such galaxy of Grayson talent as that which immediately followed Whitfield think of Rowland Hill Newton? Top Lady Dodge Rich. A number of others. Who Time would fail me to mention. They are gone they are gone. They're venerated sleeps in the earth and where this successes all square and the echo will reply where there are none successes of them where they God is not yet raised them up or if he has. You have not yet found out who they are. There is much preaching what is it. Lord help your servant to preach and teach him by your spirit what to say and then outcomes the manuscript and they read it a pure insult to Almighty God we have preaching but it is of this. Order is not preaching at all. It is speaking very beautifully very finely possibly even eloquently in some sense of the word. But where is the right down preaching such as Whitfield's have you ever read one of his sermons? You will not think malick want you cannot think him so his expressions were rough frequently very coarsened unconnected but when they his eloquence not in the words read but in the tone in which he delivered them and in the earnestness with which he felt the tears which ran down his cheeks in the pouring out of his so the reason why he was eloquent was just what the word means he was eloquent. He spoke right out from his out from the innermost depths of the man. You could see when he spoke the he meant what he said. He did not speak as a job or the man machine but he preached what. He felt to be the truth when you heard him preach you could not help feeling that he was a man who would die if you could not preach and with all his might coal to men and say come come come to..

"Devoted people and I hope this message will do the same today. All True Religion is the work of God if he should select out of his works the thing he treasures most he would select true religion. He regards the work of grace as being even more glorious than the works of Nature and he is especially careful that it will always be known so that if anyone dead and night they will do so in the teeth of repeated testimonies to the contrary Gordon Deed is the author of salvation in the world and in the hearts of men and that religion is the effective grace and it is the work of God. I believe the eternal might sooner. Forgive the sin of ascribing the creation of the heavens clear to an idol than that of ascribing the works of grace to the efforts of the flesh or anything else but God. It is a sin of the greatest magnitude to suppose that there is something else in the heart which can be acceptable to God. Save that which God himself as I created a when I did know God's work in creating the sun I deny you one tree but when I deny that he works grace in the heart. I didn't know one hundred truths in one for in the denial of that one. Great Truth that God is the author of good in the soles of men. I have to read all the doctrines which make up the greater articles of faith unto run a very teeth of the whole testimony of sacred scripture. I trust beloved. That many of us have been taught that if there is anything in our souls which can carry us to heaven. It is God's work and that if there is anything that is good and excellent found in his church. It is entirely God's work from first to last we firmly believe it is God who quickens the soul which was dead positively dead interest person sins that it is God who maintains the life of that soul and God consummate and perfect that life in the home of the blessed we ascribe nothing to man but all to God we dare not for a moment think that the conversion of the soul is affected either by its own effort or by the efforts of others. We think that we are right. In applying the text the work of divine grace both in heart and in the church at large and there is no subject better for consideration than the text opioid. Revive your work. I love it trusting that the spirit of God will help me. I will endeavour to apply the text to our own souls personally and then to the state of the church at large. There is a need that the Lord should revive. His work needs midst. So I there to our own souls personally in this matter. We should begin at home. We too often flog the church when the whip should instead be laid on our own shoulders. We drag the church like a colossal culprit to the altar we bind her and tried to execute her once. We look for folks in her where there is none and do our best to magnify her little errors while we too often forget ourselves. Let us begin with ourselves remembering that we are part of the church. And that's our own need. Revival is in some measure the cause of that lack in the church at large. Now I directly charge the great majority of professing Christians and I take the charge to myself as well with need of revival dutiful devotion in these days on the charge before you abruptly because I think have abundant grounds to prove the charge. I believe the massive Christian men in this age need a revival and my reasons of these in the first place look at the conduct conversation of too many who profess to be the children of God. What is never good for any man who occupies the sacred space of appropriate to flatter? His hairs and I will not attempt to do so today. The evil minds with too many of you who unite yourselves with Christian churches and yet live lives protesting against your professions of faith. It has become very common nowadays to join a church. People go where they may find professing Christians who sit down some Nord's table over another but are there fewer cheats than they used to be. Are there less frauds committed? Do we find morality more abundant? Do we find voice entirely? No we do not the agencies as immoral any preceded it there is still as much thin his more cloaked and hidden the outside of the two maybe whiter but within the bones just as rottenest before society is not one week improved. Those men who are popular magazines. Give us a true picture of the state of London Life as be believed and credited for they do not stretch the truth and they have no motive for doing so on the picture which they gave. The morality of this great city is certainly a polling criminal full of sin and I will say this that if all the professions in London were true professions of faith. It would not be nearly such a wicked places it is. It couldn't remain as bad as my brethren is well known that is not in these days a sufficient guarantee even of a man's honesty he is a member of a church. It is a hard thing for Christian ministers to say but we must say it. And if REN's don't say it enemies will the truth should be spoken in our midst that men may see that we are ashamed of it. They should hear US impudently nine. What we must confess to be true says the lives of too many of members of the Christian churches give us grave core suspect. There is none of the life of godliness in mature all reaching after money that covetousness all that following of crafts and devices if a wicked world all that clutching here and clutching their that. Grinding of the faces of the poor that stamping down of the workmen and such things. Golden Heaven knows that what I say is true and too many here. No it themselves. If they Christians at least they want revival if there is a life in them it is but a spark that is covered up heaps of ashes. It needs to be found and it needs to be stirred also that some of the ashes may be removed and the spark may have a place to live. The church is a whole needs revival in the heart of its members the members of a Christian churches a not once they were it is fashionable to be religious now. Persecution is over and oh I almost said the gates of the church were taken away with it. The church has with few exceptions. No Gates now. People come and go out of it just as they would march through some Paul's Cathedral and make it a place tourism instead of regarding it as a select and sacred spot to be apportioned to the holy of the Lord. If this isn't true you know how to treat it. You need not confessed to sin. You have not committed but if it is true and true in your case humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God us Kim to search and try that if you nor his child may be helped to renounce earlier profession lest it should be to you but the Gordy pageantry of death Amir tinsel and ticket in which to go to hell if you were his asti may give you more grace that you may renounce these votes follies and turn to him with your whole heart again where the conduct of professing Christians is consistent. Let me ask. The question does not the conversation of many a professor lead us either to doubt the truthfulness of his piety or else deprave his piety maybe reviled. Have you noticed the conversation of too many who think themselves Christians? You might live with them from the first of January the end of December and you would never be tired of religion for what you would hear of it. They scarcely mentioned the name of Jesus Christ at all on Sabbath afternoon. All the minister talked over faults. Found with this one on that one and all kinds of conversation take place which they call religious because it is concerning religious places but do they ever talk all he did and said and suffered for us here below. The poverty marked for us to tread am what he's doing for us now. Do you often hear the song of address to you? Your brother Christian friend. How does your soul prosper? When we step into each other's houses do we begin to talk concerning the cause and truth of God? Do you think that God would now stoop from heaven to listen to the conversation of his church as once he did when it was said the Lord listened and heard and a book of remembrance was risen for them that feared the Lord and thought upon his name. I solemnly declare as the result of thorough and I trust impartial observation. That the conversation of Christians while it cannot be condemned on the score of morality must almost invariably be condemned on the score of Christianity. We Talk to little about our Lord and Master. That ugly WORD SECTARIANISM HAS CREPT INTO MIST. And we must say nothing about Christ because we were afraid of being cruel sectarian 's our Emma sectarian and hope to be so until I die and to Gloria it for I cannot see nowadays the demand can be a Christian thoroughly in earnest without winning for himself the title sectarian why we must not talk of this doctrine perhaps because such a one believe disbelieves it we must not notice such and such a truth in scripture because such and such a friend doubt saw denies it and so we drop all the great grand topics which used to be the staple of godly talk and begin to speak of anything else because we feel that we can agree better on worldly thing. Then we can on spiritual. Isn't it true on? Isn't it a sad sin with some of us that we have to pray to God? Oh Lord Revive your work in my soul that my conversation maybe more Christ like seasoned with salt and kept by the Holy Spirit and yet a third remark. Yeah there are some whose conduct is all that we could wish whose conversation is for the most part saturated with the Gospel and Savory of truth but even they will confess to a third charge which I must now sorrowfully bring against them and against myself namely that. There is too little real communion with Jesus Christ if thanks Divine Grace. We Auburn able to keep our conduct tolerably consistent and our lives unblemished yet. How much we to cry out against ourselves from a lack of that holy fellowship with Jesus which is the high mark of the true child of God brothers. Let me ask you how long it has been since you have had a love visit. Jesus Christ how long since you could say my beloved his mind and I am hits. He feeds me among the lilies. How long since he brought you into his banqueting house and his banner over you was love now? Perhaps some of you will be able to say it. Was this morning that I saw him. I beheld his face with joy and was ravished his countenance buffet. I fear the greatest part of you here today will have to say for months. I have been without shining discountenance. What have you been doing? And what has been your way of life. Have you been groaning every day? Have you been weeping every minute? No then you should have been..

"charles spurgeon" Discussed on Christian Podcast Community

"Yeah and we have a new host for that. Show that we're excited ring in Faneuil is the narrator for that show. We hope you make it a part of your morning routine. You can search for revivals in your podcast APP of choice now. Let's continue on with spurgeon Joel. It was interesting doing the research for this episode because I realized that the verse that spurgeon really centers on here back three two is actually one. He's done multiple sermons about someone wanted to go do more research on this. I kept running into these other sermons. It's not super important but it definitely seemed like this idea of revival and asking God to refresh. His people is something that really stuck out to Charles. Virgin it's something that he came back to a lot now. We've done to other sermons by Charles Virgin before and he. He's a familiar name. Our listeners familiar name to most of us they call him the prince of preachers. And you can check out. Those episodes are catalog. The first one a call to the depressed we interview the head of the spurgeon center talking about Charles. Spurgeon is wrestling with depression. I think it's a really important episode to listen to if you haven't listened to and also we did another episode on Charles spurgeon before where we were you and I actually asked. Adia was he. You know the great great patriots as they say and we kinda run through the stats. And I noticed that because even though we've done two episodes we've actually never really done a run down on his actual life like who he was yeah. They've all been kind of focused on moments in his life. Which I kinda like it when we do that. I kind of just kind of exploring a specific aspect of someone's life. We're going to be doing a little bit more of that here today. Focusing on a specific event in his life but as a quick recap spurgeon he was born in England in eighteen thirty four. His father and grandfather both already ministers and he said that his earliest memories was looking at the books. Pilgrim's progress and foxe's book of martyrs. Now you'd think that child being raised in a household full of ministers would be destined to follow Jesus from the get-go but that was not the case it really wasn't until he was about fifteen years old any set out one morning to go to a church service and he got caught in this terrible snowstorm in the snowstorm is what we're going to kind of focus on here today. Yeah I wanted to focus on the snowstorm because it's actually really cool in my mind how it happened in. Maybe you already have heard the story. I you know as I was reading doing research a lot of people. Yeah it's the old snowstorms story. But spurgeon is heading to church to hear his father preached but a big snowstorm does blows in it. He can't see where he's going cold shivering. He's probably soaking wet. I grew up in Florida. This wasn't really a problem. Had I remember the first couple times I got cut out in the snow? I couldn't understand why everyone didn't move to Florida. It's just absolutely awful. It's so betty spurgeon realizes he's not going to make it to church and so we actually just sees kind of building up ahead he sees as a church is I'm GonNa go for it and see if he opens the doors unlocked and there's some people inside and it's a little methodist chapel. Now if you're me I honestly. I've seen snowstorms storms nice on the road and I haven't wanted to go to church at all right like sometimes it's just too much and and for so many this would have been this huge inconvenience that kept them from going into who knows how many people didn't go to church that day and didn't hear the Gospel weren't able to but even though what would have looked like a bad day to everyone else God was using it to save. Something saved someone very important in that moment. And as I said some people wouldn't have been able to make it a church. Actually the minister of that Methodist Chapel couldn't make it to church that day he he could not make it to the chapel through the snowstorm. So the people in there he was with were kind of wondering what to do Spurgeon said he was the only young man in the church so was probably a bunch of old people in just him and he's a stranger to kind of walked into get out of the cold. I'd imagine this was an uncomfortable moment for him. I imagine he's feeling awkward. And kinda wishing the snow would let up so he could just leave. He sees his old man. Go Up to the pulpit. He wasn't a a learned me. It wasn't educated guy. This guy wasn't holding the big theological to theological degree up there. A surgeon calls them in his memoirs. Calls him a shoemaker. This was just a simple guy who loved God realized someone needed to get up and preach and he decided he was going to be that guy. That's right in. This guy didn't wake up ready to preach that. He had no idea about the snowstorm but he gets up there and he preaches the truth of the Gospel from Isaiah. Forty five twenty two which says turned to me and be saved all the ends of the Earth for I am God and there is no other and this old man does probably like the lease friendly thing that you could do to a new visitor at church. I don't know if you've ever been sitting in Church. And listening to this pastor speaking and have a moment of terrifying thought that like the pastor's. GonNa call you out individually in like point to you and speak to you in like preach directly to you by name. That's essentially what this pastor does. He looks at spurgeon and he points at Minnesota's young man. Look to Jesus Christ look look look you have nothing to do but to look into live as spurgeon said in that moment when that guy was talking directly to him he just he felt and saw the way to salvation to the Lord. I don't know if it's because he grew up in the church and he just had never really been challenged maybe because he was away from family ties and relationships had these expectations on on it. So we could kind of think about the question or just this old man's faith God's who whatever it was at fifteen. The Lord grabbed hold aspersions heart. It's really important to note to any as an important part. Trump's virgins life is. He really didn't go to school and I in the earlier episode we point. He didn't go to Bible College and get a seminary degree but he didn't actually even wouldn't have even gone to what would have been high school back. In his days you know so many of the guys on revived thoughts for these theological prodigies. And they're just they're unstoppable. That's not really spurgeon story. He he took a little bit of Greek on the side. He went to a little bit school but he didn't really go. Any further than an average student would or and especially in that time period and yet he'll end up with this mass of twelve thousand book collection and tons of his own personal writings. And annotations that are still being studied published today to see how God took somebody from where they were and made them something different. Yes spurgeon almost immediately started preaching and by seventeen. He was already at a church and he had outlines for his sermons that he preached but he wouldn't look at them. They said that he looked young. And yet spoke with such maturity within a year and a half. There was a church in London congregation of two hundred and thirty two people that asked him to come there. This church loved hearing him speak and they wanted him to stick around for about six months. Nobody knew at the time that spurgeon would end up spending the rest of his life a leading that church in that congregation there so much so that they had to build a bigger building as the church expanded and it became. What trion I kind of think about is the first real like Mega Church the Metropolitan Tabernacle? They designed it to seat at least five thousand people but even that wasn't nearly enough to eat when he would preach on Sunday morning. There would be huge gatherings outside of the building. China China. Just hear a little bit of what's Virgin was preaching that morning and this is by the time he was twenty seven. He this was going on. It's hard to imagine that would be a big deal today with all of our technology. And all of our microphones of somebody could build that church. That quickly would be a big deal today. In their time period without wasn't yet even a thing I it would have been nominal. Yeah in the fact that he doesn't appear to be very prideful like I know that's something we see time and time again with with a lot of speakers in America. Something a lot of mold kind of lose their way the more money the more fame that comes their way if spurgeon ever did Russell with pride it certainly does not something that we really seen as life very. Evidently this episode is brought to you by Kriegel publications and the new book. Forty questions about Islam by Matthew Bennett. Most of my my friends here in the West. Look at Muslims and they they think that this is a really really tough horizon for the Gospel to penetrate and yet the reality is Muslims are among the people most primed to have gospel conversations. Even though I've written a book about a slum my my heartbeat behind it is not to answer all of your questions about what you're Muslim neighbor thinks but rather to help introduce you to some of the the world view level issues that are shaping and forming your isamic neighbor so that you can ask informed questions of them and get to know them. Just start asking questions than before you know it. You're in a friendship and you can continue asking questions. And even in in time be able to provide the answers that you would give to those same questions look for forty questions about Islam and where you find Christian books or at critical dot com. He was not always beloved though at the New York Times and the London Times. Used to publish sermons which I thought was funny to think about that. We had these newspapers that are you know. They're both still around today but imagine back in the day. They were preaching sermons and people were buying them. They wanted to read them. That's something so four and to us. Now the idea that you pick up a newspaper and SEE SERMON BY FAMOUS PREACHER. But anyway he was so widely read that although a lot of people knew what he was preaching and they would attack them. They'd write articles against him and they say hey you know he's been. It's too much time talking about grieving parents or Harlot from the Bible or other Old Testament subjects. They said that we're really not supposed to talk about an immediate to put yourself back in their shoes again. This is Victoria Victorian England era. This was a time of high society. When when asked about its virgin said you know I am perhaps vulgar? But it's not intentional. Save that I must and I will make people listen. My firm conviction is that we have had enough polite preachers. He had one of the stories. I like about surgeon from this From this time in his life comes from Queen Victoria as she liked spurgeon Alana's fascinated with them and so he invited him to come to the palace and preach there and there's a national day of prayer. She had a huge fast for the country and spurgeon at twenty three years old comes out to preach in a crowd of twenty three thousand shows up to hear him. Twenty three thousand people know microphones. No jumbotron for you to see no transcripts for the crowd to read. It was twenty three thousand people standing in silence trying to hear a man who knows how far away preaching the word of God. Where do where do you put all the horses where that is? How do you park that? Many people with horses back in those days. It's a good question. That is a good question. History deep dive episode. Where did people horses during these big gatherings? There's gotta be there's just you know like how we've parking garages now parking stables a reporter for a newspaper there he was blown away by the crowd and he goes up to this child who was sitting in the back and I mean spurgeon is a small speck way out on the horizon preaching in this reporter asks this this child. Can you even hear? What would he say from this far away in this kid supposedly looks up at him and smiles and says of course as if he was sitting next to me and whispering? In my ear. Inner brings up an interesting point in that trial and I can talk about some time. Like is is the Holy Spirit. Like apart you know. Before megaphones before microphones and an amps existed like was that something that the Holy Spirit helped people projector voice communicate with more people or not. I don't know it's just something fun to anything. It was just a question but spurgeon did believe in using your voice and mastering it. We will probably wrap it up around here. I we can keep going and we will in future episode of US. Virgin recommended that everyone who wanted to be a preacher and any students. He had a school or anywhere he was he would tell them to practise. Speaking practice making speeches practice. Throwing your voice using your voice and just get used to the power of your vocal cords and it really made a lot of sense to me to musicians have to practice their gifts to the Lord. They have to practice singing. I think a lot of us today could actually really benefit from using in viewing our voices as something that can be practice to make it. Sound more appealing. He described it really. Interestingly too he said a lot of people think that louder is better but spurgeon said that a bell can be heard further than a drum and that is not a thumping on Piano. People want to hear but a gentle plane of a beautiful musical instrument that the sweeter and better you can sound the more.
