Notes on Mortification (39)

The way, the truth and the life!
The way, the truth and the life!

O how we need in these days, as believers, to be mourners,“blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted”(Matthew 5:4). If we don’t weep for ourselves, how can weep for others who are caught up in the abominable plagues poured out from on high in this land of ours today? The dreadful uncleanness, the fornication and sodomising, surely as in Isaiah’s day, “except the Lord of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom, and we should have been as Gomorrah”(Isaiah 1:9). There is a dreadful word, “I will set my face against them, and they shall go out from fire, and another shall devour them” (Ezekiel 15:6-7). God has punishments for workers of iniquities, he punishes sin with more sin, if God has given us up to these plagues and increasingly, more and more into the hands of terrorising Islamists, what will the end of us be? And if truth be told we haven’t seen even the half yet of what’s to come. The stronger sins become, the greater and stronger punishments will be. In the midst of such, what manner of persons ought we to be? So, therefore, you ought to engage with all your might against that sin that prevails most against you, and in striving against it, to grow more particularly in the opposite grace. Consider also, meditate upon your Saviour’s coming, should he arrive in the midst of this, how will he find you. “when Christ who is our life shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory. MORTIFY therefore your members which are upon the earth” (Colossians 3:4-5).
