As yet exalt you yourself against my people, that you will not let them go?
I. THAT THERE IS A GREAT AND AWFUL JUDGMENT THREATENED UPON MAN IN THE FUTURE. Time known only to God. Enough that fact is certain.
II. THAT THERE IS A SHELTER PROVIDED FROM THE FINAL JUDGMENT OF THE FUTURE.
1. Divinely made known.
2. Mercifully sufficient.
3. Gratefully welcomed.
III. THAT ONLY THOSE WHO HEED THE WARNING OF GOD, AND AVAIL THEMSELVES OF THE SHELTER PROVIDED, WILL BE SAFE IN THE FINAL JUDGMENT OF LIFE.
IV. THAT MANY, THROUGH UNBELIEF, OR THROUGH NEGLECT OF THE WORD OF GOD, WILL PERISH IN THE FINAL JUDGMENT OF LIFE. Lessons:
1. Believe in the judgment to come.
2. Believe in the mercy of Christ.
3. Flee from the wrath to come.
(J. S. Exell, M. A.)
