The Man of God

"The man of God." C. H. Mackintosh. "That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works." 2 Tim. 3: 17. The sentence which we have just penned occurs in Paul's second Epistle to his beloved son Timothy — an epistle marked, as we know, by intense individuality. All thoughtful students of scripture have noticed the striking contrast between the two Epistles of Paul to Timothy. In the first, the church is presented in its order, and Timothy is instructed as to ho...

The Sabbath, the Law, and the Christian Ministry

The Sabbath, the Law, and the Christian Ministry. C. H. Mackintosh. "I speak as to wise men; judge ye what I say." A Scriptural Enquiry. In resuming our lectures, for the winter months, we feel called upon to offer a few words of explanation to all such as may be desirous of knowing something of the doctrines held by those persons who stand connected, in any measure, with this service. We feel that such persons have a claim upon us, to which we ought to respond, not for the purpose of vin...

Thou and thy house

"Thou and thy house." C. H. Mackintosh. Preface. Nothing can be more truly beneficial for the soul than to be brought under the searching power of the word of God, — to have our treacherous hearts examined by its sure light, and all our ways fairly tested by its holy precepts. “The law of the Lord is perfect." It is God's means of effectually dealing with His people, and accomplishing in them the purposes of His love. Hence, if the soul be in a healthful moral condition, it wil...

Ministry of Reconciliation

  Ministry of Reconciliation C. H. Mackintosh. "And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation, to wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them, and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as God though did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. For he hath m...

Now and Then

Now and Then; or, Time and Eternity. The Substance of a Lecture on Luke 12. C. H. Mackintosh. "While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal." 2 Cor. 4: 18. The principles of truth laid down in Luke 12 are of the most solemn and searching character. Their practical bearing is such as to render them, in a day like the present, of the very last importance. World...

Conversion: What is it?

Conversion: What is it? C. H. Mackintosh. Part 1 1 Thessalonians 1 presents a very striking and beautiful picture of what we may truly call genuine conversion. We propose to study the picture in company with the reader. If we are not much mistaken, we shall find the study at once interesting and profitable. It will furnish an answer, distinct and clear, to the question which stands at the head of this article, namely, What is conversion? Nor is this by any means a small matter. It is well,...

Papers on the Lord's Coming - B

THE JUDGMENT There is something peculiarly painful in the thought of having so frequently to come in collision with the generally received opinions of the professing Church. It looks presumptuous to contradict, on so many subjects, all the great standards and creeds of Christendom. But what is one to do? Were it indeed a mere question of human opinion it might seem a piece of bold and unwarrantable temerity for any one individual to set himself in direct opposition to the established faith of t...

Nicodemus

“There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: the same came to Jesus by night”(John 3:1,2). When we turn in the Bible to John chapter three we find recorded for our learning the interesting interview between the Lord and Nicodemus—a dialogue full of the very deepest and most important instruction. We may truly say, if ever there was a time in which the history of Nicodemus claimed special attention, it is just today, in this day of man’s proud ...
