Historical Note It has been reported that Jonathan Edwards first preached "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God" at his own church in Northhampton, Massachusetts. Later, he preached the same message at Enfield, Connecticut. Perhaps others have seen the same situation: the same sermon given on different occasions can have a different impact on its hearers. This varying impact is evidence that it is the Holy Spirit that brings spiritual discernment and applies the truth to human hearts (1 Corinthians 2:14; John 16:8). While it is true that God "now commandeth all men every where to repent (Acts 17:30)" and men ought to repent, true conversion and true revivals are God-sent.
Superb This sermon spells out one fact, God has His pick. We can not deny His sovereignty in choosing one and not another. Edwards handles the Scriptures with the greatest of care. Of all the scholars you may read this man had such a deep relationship with Christ that he almost speaks like you are reading Scripture. Don't miss this sermon.
Great Sermon! For anyone who has led a sinful life and feels he or she is past pardoning this sermon is for you. Edwards deals with this Psalm magnificently. God will allow the vilest of creatures that truly repent into his heaven. Those that claim to be righteous on their own will not make it. Listen to understand this great theologians understanding of grace to wicked people like us.
Great Sermon! The mystery of the soul without Christ is not to be taken lightly. Edwards drives the nails into any belief contrary to the Biblical one. God is better at paybacks that anyone in all of creation. God is not mocked. Please listen to this sermon, both for your soul and for those around you.
You cant get to heaven another way! This is so convicting and helps us to realise the road is often tough but holiness is our goal. Edwards superior preaching is evident here. Sin can't slip in some door or it wouldnt be God holy heaven. Dont miss this and ALL of Edwards sermons. James
Perfect in content This Preacher is so superior to much of the mush you hear today. Do not pass this one up. Though I rarely listen to the same sermon I have heard this several times. It is a model to follow in preaching on Christ. All of Edwards sermons are gold in a sea of mostly coal. Dont stop
with Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God. James
