Relevant Sermon! The confederated forces of Romanism, neo-paganism, Freemasonry, and Jewish Cabalah all derive this practice from the same superstitions of ancient BABYLON--are establishing their anti-Christian Deism (Judeo-Masonry) as the world religion, its chief "holy-day" being named Christmas, while they claim "under God"!
It is the religious worship of Egypt, Babylon, both pagan and Papal Rome, the dissenter-persecuting Church of England (until Cromwell's puritans abolished it) and now the official "holiday" of the United States--the religious Mark of tyrannical governments, MYSTERY BABYLON!
What is unconstitutionally "established" a federal "holiday" for the pro-Christmas sects and denominations is precisely what our Christian forefather's resisted and fought against:
"A broad element of English Christianity still considered Christmas
celebration a pagan blasphemy. The Puritans, [Pilgrims], Baptists, Quakers,
Presbyterians, Calvinists and other denominations brought this opposition to
early New England and strong opposition to the holiday lasted in America
until the middle of the 18th century."

How apostasy is the road to tyranny, and today's "established churches" again support it!
Great Sermon! It is a sad truth that Christ has not been the subject in most of the preaching in many Christian churches nowadays. We have not been true in putting Christ the center of all our worship. That is why C.H. Spurgeon emphasizes the necessity of preaching a personal, practical and experiential Christ in all of our lives. Christ should be the substance of our preaching and not just the shadow. Listen to this first message he preached in the Metropolitan Tabernacle making his pulpit ministry clear in its direction to all of his hearers. Indeed, Jesus is worthy to receive glory and honor in our ministry.
Great Sermon! Many times we despair and think that God does not love us any more. But that is not true. Many waters cannot quench neither floods drown God's love for us. This is the Shulamite's Choice prayer. May this be our prayer as well. Christ's love rises higher and higher. Floods may try to rise it but His love will still be there. Hear this message and receive God's love for all eternity.
Great Sermon! Christ is the same ever since yet believers never see it that way. All Christians know Christ but they don't know him in the same capacity. It is a great joy to know Him better. We must know Him not just as a great teacher but a Savior and a friend who speaks to us like a brother. Blessed is he who could say in his heart, "May Christ be formed in me, the hope of glory." Our desire therefore is to know Him more and more. There should be an intense longing to see Christ. That is why this is a great teaching that unveils the Christ of Patmos in a glorified state. For what we know Christ now, we shall be in the future. Listen to this message and be blessed indeed.
Great Sermon! In a world where there is turmoil, war and confusion, it is important to hear about the Spiritual Peace found in Christ alone. The preacher talks about the legacy of Christ that has brought us peace with God and consequently peace with our own conscience. Listen to this preaching and you will greatly appreciate the forgiveness that God gives us. Indeed, peace and joy will definitely reign in the hearts of those who believe.
Great Sermon! It is a sad truth that in every Christian church, there are people who have a name but are spiritually dead. The church has lost her zeal and her energy. There seems to be little distinction these days between the Christians and the world. That is why this message from the book of Revelation regarding the church at Sardis is a solemn warning for all the churches not to defile our garments. The preacher makes a good point. Listen and be blessed. It is time to be zealous again for God's glory.
Great Sermon! The Christian's duty is to praise God and to bless His name forever. This is what the preacher emphasized in this message. When we neglect this, our faith can fail us. Listen to this message and be encouraged to rediscover the secret of praise to grow our faith. May our tounges be touched by rejoicing in God's glory. Bless His name.

Great Sermon! This is a great sermon regarding the mystery of the new birth brought about by the Holy Spirit for those who believe. We are partekers of the divine nature by the new birth as well as partakers of the sinful nature by the old birth. But in Christ Jesus, new life is
communicated to us from God. What a blessed hope beyond compare.
The Truth! The blood cleans us from every sin.
So the devil had no right for me and you, if we stand at the bottom of the cross of calvary! and look to HIM!
I know that my ego is nailed on the cross with HIM!
Wonderful sermon ! Great preacher !
Oh ! where are such men, who preach with the authority and power of God ?
God may bless you !
AWESOME, AWESOME Sermon! Let the wonderful truth of Jesus fill you! Listen to wonderful reading of Spurgeon. Here is merely a small, small portion of what he says here: "Could I speak to you without my lips and with my heart, then would I bid you seek that sprinkled blood and urge you by the love of your own soul, by everything that is sacred and eternal, to labor to get this blood of Jesus sprinkled on our soul. It is the blood sprinkled that saves a sinner.
But when the Christian gets the blook sprinkled, that is not all he wants. He wants something to feed on. And, oh, sweet God.
Jesus Christ is not only a savior for sinners. But he is food for them after they are saved. The paschal lamb by faith we eat. We live on it! You may tell my hearers whether you have the blood sprinkled by this: do you eat the lamb? ("Except you eat my flesh and drink my blood, you have no life in you," Jesus said.) Excellent exposition, too, of the Old Testament!! It is blood, blood, blood that saves. Not blood mixed with water (i.e. our weak works) that save, but blood, blood, blood. Christ our Passover is sacrified for us! This sermon was originally preached on Dec. 2 1865. (I thank the pastor who read it into a recording and posted it here!)
Awesome Sermon! The lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life are all at war against the Christian's soul. "O wretched man that I am who will deliver me from the body of this death". This is Paul's cry and this is the cry of every Christian who seeks to live a godly life in Christ Jesus. This is a wonderful study of Romans 7:24,25. We have all heard prosperity preachers, preaching their falsehood. There are those who preach that if we follow Christ, that we will have no trouble. Yet truth is preached in this sermon. The truth that when we walk with Christ, our old sin nature and our new nature of Christ, are at war with each other in our bodies. I would highly recommend this sermon! 1 John 2:16 For all that is in the world--the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life--is not of the Father but is of the world.
Great Sermon! This sermon that c. H spurgeon preach set the course of plain wisdom, that men should not try and make God word out with such swelling words that are higher above those that listen. that men should be humble and use plain speech in addressing the mighty word of God thanks for this great sermon.
One of the best sermons This is really one of Spurgeon's sermon's which I really like a lot and has given me a lot of encouragement.. I have listened to it several times and still learn more when I listen again.. Even for first timers this is a very good one.. and its really an encouragement for christians who feel a bit down and discouraged.. "Limiting God" also is recommended
Exellent Sermon! I have listened to this sermon about 10 times and each time it has impacted me. "Vessels of Mercy" is on the top ten list of my favorite Spurgeon sermons along with "A Home Question", and "Indwelling Sin".
All christian need to listen to these sermons at least five times.
The voice of the Blood! Truly a great preacher! Spurgeon's life long theme..
‚ÄėE‚Äôer since by faith I saw the stream
Thy flowing wounds supply,
Redeeming love has been my theme,
And shall be till I die.‚Äô
‚ÄúI am forgiven! I am forgiven! A monument of grace! A sinner saved by blood!‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúFor by grace are ye saved through faith‚Ä¶‚ÄĚ Eph. 2:8,9.
A great biography including his wonderful testimony of salvation:

Another sermon by Spurgeon can be found by searching online (Spurgeon sermon No 2043. The Blood of the Lamb the Conquering Weapon. Revelation 12:11)
‚Äú Brethren, the blood of Jesus Christ, God‚Äôs dear Son, cleanseth us from all sin (I John 1:6-10). Jesus has borne the penalty due to us: he has discharged for us upon the cross all our liabilities to the justice of God, and we are free for ever, because our Surety suffered in our place. Where is the accuser now? That dragon voice is silenced by the blood of the lamb. Nothing else can ever silence the accuser‚Äôs cruel voice (i.e. the Devil who deceives the whole world Revelation: 12:9; II Corinthians 11: 3,4,13-15 etc) but the voice of the blood which tells of the infinite God accepting, in our behalf, the sacrifice which he himself supplied.‚ÄĚ
