Calvin & the Law!
This is a thirty page booklet explaining the Reformer John Calvin's teaching on the subject of biblical Law. A needed antidote against the rising tide of so-called new covenant teaching abroad today. The Law for Calvin had a three fold purpose, pedagogical, political and very much a purpose for the believers life today and every generation.

For God so loved the world He gave,
His banner he unfurled in love,
Upon the rugged cross His Son;
Wasted to save us from our sin.
O depth of grace how can it be?
That Jesus Christ should die for me!
For God so loved the world He sent,
The fulness of HIs wrath He spent,
Upon His one and only Son;
That we from evil should return,
Unquenchable, flame of love,
That God in grace, to us should give.
For God so loved the World He chose,
Fetching a people to the cross,
Whom he would sovereignly, lovingly draw;
Even though they had broken His law,
Forgiving, cleansing, making pure,
In sovereign grace and mighty power.
For God so loved the world he shone,
In inky darkness, made Himself known,
Sovereign, eternal, victorious in love;
His glory shone from heaven above,
In Jesus Christ, God’s holy Son,
Saving His people and making them one.

The Person of Christ!
The fact that others who are called through the ministry of the gospel do come and are brought to conversion must not be credited to man, as though one distinguishes himself by free choice from others who are furnished with equal or sufficient grace for faith and conversion (as the proud heresy of Pelagius maintains). No, it must be credited to God: just as from eternity he chose his own in Christ, so within time he effectively calls them, grants them faith and repentance, and, having rescued them from the dominion of darkness, brings them into the kingdom of his Son, in order that they may declare the wonderful deeds of him who called them out of darkness into this marvelous light, and may boast not in themselves, but in the Lord, as apostolic words frequently testify in Scripture.
Article 11: The Holy Spirit's Work in Conversion
Moreover, when God carries out this good pleasure in his chosen ones, or works true conversion in them, he not only sees to it that the gospel is proclaimed to them outwardly, and enlightens their minds powerfully by the Holy Spirit so that they may rightly understand and discern the things of the Spirit of God, but, by the effective operation of the same regenerating Spirit, he also penetrates into the inmost being of man, opens the closed heart, softens the hard heart, and circumcises the heart that is uncircumcised. He infuses new qualities into the will, making the dead will alive, the evil one good, the unwilling one willing, and the stubborn one compliant; he activates and strengthens the will so that, like a good tree, it may be enabled to produce the fruits of good deeds.
Article 12: Regeneration a Supernatural Work
And this is the regeneration, the new creation, the raising from the dead, and the making alive so clearly proclaimed in the Scriptures, which God works in us without our help. But this certainly does not happen only by outward teaching, by moral persuasion, or by such a way of working that, after God has done his work, it remains in man's power whether or not to be reborn or converted. Rather, it is an entirely supernatural work, one that is at the same time most powerful and most pleasing, a marvelous, hidden, and inexpressible work, which is not lesser than or inferior in power to that of creation or of raising the dead, as Scripture (inspired by the author of this work) teaches. As a result, all those in whose hearts God works in this marvelous way are certainly, unfailingly, and effectively reborn and do actually believe. And then the will, now renewed, is not only activated and motivated by God but in being activated by God is also itself active. For this reason, man himself, by that grace which he has received, is also rightly said to believe and to repent.
Theology of Children
Great, even the best of ministers make mistakes, sometimes great mistakes. And sometimes mistaken ministers need to be told they are mistaken, it is more important to keep the truth in the church than the peace. Mr. Ryle also shows us here that there is no doctrine over which we should be so jealous as that of justification by faith alone, apart from works
'A Street Preacher Publication'
You were given the Bible to teach us how to be reconciled to God and to live unto him. To become more Christ-like in our daily living. That we might find deep satisfaction and enjoyment in God, knowing his grace flowing towards us, encouraging, strengthening and giving us the victory by the power of his Holy Spirit.
As you use these devotional tools, written by James R Hamilton himself, you will begin to experience growth, and inner strength emanating from the word God. The strength is in the seed. God wants you to have that strength, to know his power and grace working in you, transforming your inner life, filled with joy unspeakable and full of glory

Preaching in Sheffield - June 2105
"What rational basis or evidence is there for the position that all knowledge must be empirical by nature? Ie., verified by observation or experience. If all knowledge must be empirical by nature, then the uniformity of nature cannot be known to be true. And without the knowledge that the future will be like the past, we could not draw empirical generalisations, in which case the whole enterprise of natural science would be undermined"

"Why have laws in an evolutionary universe? Laws are designed to protect the weak from the strong. But evolution is based on the strong dominating the weak. Laws are anti-evolutionary by their very nature, because they inhibit the strong from abusing the weak. According to evolution, a species is only able to advance as its weaker members are eliminated. How contrary to the entire earthly ministry of Christ! Jesus healed the sick, and had compassion on the poor and weak"

"O that the people of England 'knew, at least in this their day, the things that belong unto their peace, before they are hid from their eyes.' O foolish miserable souls! Who hath bewitched your minds into such madness, and your hearts into such deadness, that you should be such mortal enemies to yourselves, and go on so obstinately towards damnation, that neither the word of God, nor the persuasions of men, can change your minds, or hold your hands, or stop you till you are past remedy!"
