LORD, even he shall build the temple of the LORD, and he shall bear the glory." [Zach. vi. 12, 13.]   - "The man that is my fellow." [Zach. xiii. 7.]   - "His name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, the Mighty GOD, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace." [Isai. ix. 6.]   "They shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, GOD with us." [Isai. vii. 14.  Matt. i. 23.]

How do the Apostles speak upon this subject? Who do they declare to be all and in all in the religion of sinners? - "The Word was made flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth." [John i. 14, 16.]   "Other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is JESUS CHRIST." [1 Cor. iii. 11.]   JESUS CHRIST himself being the chief corner stone, in whom all the building fitly framed together, groweth unto an holy Temple in the LORD. "The fulness of him that filleth all and in all." [Ephef. ii. 20, 21.]   "In him ye are complete." [Eph i. 23.]   "Redeemed with the precious blood of CHRIST." [1 Pet. i. 18, 19.]   "CHRIST is our life." [Colof. iii. 4.]

What is the testimony of the LORD JESUS CHRIST respecting himself? - "As the Father


hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself." [John v. 26.]   "I and my Father are one." [John x. 30.]   "I lay down my life for the sheep." [John xiv. 6.]   "I am the resurrection and the life." [John xi. 25.]   - Can any believe the Sacred Scriptures, can they affix a consistent meaning to these passages, and hesitate a moment in determining the character of the Saviour - what relation he bears to the redeemed - and of what importance he is to sinners?

The BENEFITS of the everlasting covenant are all ratified in him, and bestowed for his sake.

The new heart is his gift. The new birth is produced by his spirit, and effectual calling accomplished by his grace. He makes his people willing in a day of his power, and he alone gives rest to the weary and heavy laden.

Pardon and peace are the fruits of his purchase. It is in the beloved alone the unworthy are accepted. By faith they are justified as they receive CHRIST and become united to him thereby; not for faith or any merit in believing. The righteousness of the REDEEMER
