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.

Book of Jude
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.
(Tune: Eaton; 88. 88. 88)

"One reason why we should leave tomorrow in God's hand is that, long before He created us, He arranged the content of each day. Nothing, therefore, is haphazard or left to chance. All that happens within the sphere of His providence is as unchangeable as His love. Because, then, our times are in His hand, present and future, we should be content with whatever the present may bring or the future may disclose. "Be content with such things as ye have; for He hath said, I will never leave thee or forsake thee""
(Origins of the Universe, Mankind, Sin etc)
"Doctor Payson once said, "anticipated sorrows are harder to bear than real ones, because Christ does not support us under them." Whatever the future may bring God will adapt His strength to every situation. With the need, and only then, comes His grace”

An Ode to Mike Overd
Brother Mike can often be heard,
For the people of Taunton, he long has cared;
Telling of Jesus the mighty to save,
Who defeated death and arose from the grave.
He told them Mohammed’s in his tomb,
So in their lives they shouldn’t give him room;
Christ is alive forevermore,
So he is the One you ought to adore.
Brother Mike’s love and compassion,
Seeking to save and from certain damnation;
Wasn’t received in the way he intended,
The people he loved were greatly offended.
They watched and listened one and all,
Recording and filming, desiring that Mike should fall;
He spoke of the truth, and error too,
He held back nothing, as he’s supposed to do.
Long, long ago in England’s fair land,
Mike would’ve been loved and thought to be grand;
Alas those days are long lost and gone;
The glory’s departed and the light that once shone.
Mike’s been arraigned in court must appear,
The truth of the Bible that Christians hold dear;
No longer is wanted in Taunton Town,
They’d rather be amused by some local clown.
Whatever the outcome in Taunton’s court,
Our brother Mike’s got our overwhelming support;
Jesus won’t leave him, and neither will we,
We stand with our brother on bended knee.

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

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

SERMONS FOR SEEKERS!
(Evangelistic Sermons on Mark's Gospel)
“A remarkable story of a Christian man whose sons made light of their Christian upbringing and heritage, and who went on carelessly in the hard way of transgressors. Over the long years their father prayed for their salvation; but he passed into God's presence with his prayers apparently unanswered. Then he died, and his wayward sons followed his dust to the grave. On that day, as they entered the home of their early years, they saw the old tear-stained chair beside which their father often kneeled in prayer for them. As they stood their in silence something like a wave out of the eternal world touched their spirits and compelled them to fall down on their knees and to ask God for mercy. From that hour they were new men in Christ. God had richly answered their father's prayers"
How can Jesus be God?
"The late Principal John MacLeod used to tell the story of an excellent woman whose godly husband was dying of a dangerous and contagious infection. As he lay down on his couch to die his wife was alone, for in the circumstances her neighbours were afraid to enter her home. As her beloved husband breathed his last as sense of great loneliness filled her spirit. "Lover and friend Thou hsat put far from me." These words of the Psalmist she sobbed out of a broken heart before God. It was then that she heard a voice: "You are alone, woman." It was then also that she saw an impressive stranger, who quietly entered her room. After he had carefully attended to the precious remains he sat with her by the fire. But not another word did he speak. With the break of day he took his leave. The man had brought heaven into her home, for as he sat there beside her all fears and sense of loneliness left her...She never saw or heard her visitor before or after; but the afterglow of his very presence seemed to tarry in her home for many days"
