He will not call back his words

AS the Lord never speaks rashly, there can be no cause for it. As he knew the end from the beginning, it would be inconsistent to do it. His word is like himself, immutable. It must have its accomplishment. Hence the Saviour said, " Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away." This will apply to all the promises. They are yea and amen in Christ Jesus. They are sure to all the seed. They can never be broken. Therefore we should place implicit confidence in them, and endeavour to chase away our fears with them. They are exceeding great, very plain, and most precious. They are not to be compared with gold, or with much fine gold. Christian, here is thy comfort, Thy God " will not call back his words." What he hath said, he will do. Here is thy security, the word of the Lord endureth for ever. Sinner, this subject should make thee tremble. God will be as true to his threatenings, as he will be to his promises. If so, hell shall receive every person who dies in an unconverted state.

    The word of God shall ever stand,
Firm, and immutable and;

    Wise is'his heart, and stronp his hand,
His people's welfare to secure,

    But sinners who reject his word,
Shall fall beneath his glittering sword.
