Sermon: Ephesians 5:14, 1760 May 15

ms-number760315

[note (type: abstract): Sermon on Ephesians 5:15 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.][note (type: handwriting): Clear and legible, although lettercase is occasionally difficult to discern.][note (type: paper): Several small sheets are folded together into a booklet. The paper is in fair condition, with some staining and heavy wear around the edges.][note (type: ink): Light brown][note (type: noteworthy): At top of one recto, “& Revelat.” is written in pencil and refers to the last page, which appears to be the beginning of a new sermon on a text from Revelation 16: 15 “Behold, I come”. The salutation “Revd Sir, I Conclude you have” along the left edge of six verso appears to be the beginning of a letter on a sheet that was repurposed for the sermon.]

Wherefore he [Saith | sayeth]Saithsayeth awake thou that  [Sleepſest | sleepest]Sleepſestsleepest and [ariſe | arise]ariſearise from the [Dad | dead]Daddead and  [Chriſt | Christ]ChriſtChrist Shall give thee Light —
we may at once Perceive from [theſe | these]theſethese  words, the Infinite [goodneſs | goodness]goodneſsgoodness and [Con­  deſention | con descension]Con­  deſentioncon descension of God towards us [Rabeles | rebels]Rabelesrebels  for we have willfully Departed from  god our Maker and in Departing  from him, we Depart from our own  [Hapineſs | happiness]Hapineſshappiness yea we [forfit | forfeit]forfitforfeit all [Bleſſed­ neſs | blessed ness]Bleſſed­ neſsblessed ness and every Mercy, and we Can  Claim nothing at the Hands of god  Better than Damnation, and god mig^[above] ht^ht  have [Juſtly | justly]Juſtlyjustly left us in our [miſery | misery]miſerymisery With  [everlaſting | everlasting]everlaſtingeverlasting Shame and [Confuſion | confusion]Confuſionconfusion of  Face, and when he had thoughts  of mercy he might have By us and  Placed his love on the fallen Angels  who are greater in Power than men  they are [likeliyer | likelier]likeliyerlikelier to [ſerve | serve]ſerveserve him
Better than we; But behold his  mercy is towards the fallen Children  of Adam, and there is no other [Reaſon | reason]Reaſonreason  Can be given why he does, ^[above] [ſo | so]ſoso^[ſo | so]ſoso but this  [becauſe | because]becauſebecause he will have Mercy on  whom he will have Mercy and he  will have [Comp^[above] a^aſſion | compassion]Comp^[above] a^aſſioncompassion on whom he  will have [Compaſſion | compassion]Compaſſioncompassion — and this  his hPity to us, is brought abou^[above] t^t  in a way that Men or Angels  [Cou'd | could]Cou'dcould never find out or invent,  it [muſt | must]muſtmust needs be in and [thro' | through]thro'through the  Death of his only [begoten | begotten]begotenbegotten Son  here is [unparallel'd | unparalleled]unparallel'dunparalleled Love that god So  Loved the World that he gave his  only [begoten | begotten]begotenbegotten Son into the Worald  that [Whoſoever | whosoever]Whoſoeverwhosoever believeth in Shall  not [Periſh | perish]Periſhperish but have [ever laſting | everlasting]ever laſtingeverlasting  Life, this is good News good News  unto [Miſerable | miserable]Miſerablemiserable Children of Fallen A.  that there is a Saviour given a migh^[above] t [illegible][guess (ivys): y]y^t [illegible][guess (ivys): y]y  Saviour —
and in further Speaking upon [theſe | these]theſethese ^[above] this^this  text I Shall Endeavour, as god Shall  help. to give the Import of it, in  Several [Perticulars | particulars]Perticularsparticulars.   and here [firſt | first]firſtfirst In genera^[above] l^l
It Plainly [Implys | implies]Implysimplies, that man as he  [illegible]is fallen Creature from God, is fallen  [A Sleep | asleep]A Sleepasleep Spiritually, he is [Stupified | stupefied]Stupifiedstupefied ^[above] thereby^thereby,  yea he is fallen Down Dead in  [Traſpaſſes | trespasses]Traſpaſſestrespasses and in Sins —
And here I Shall endeavour to [repre^[above] t^t | represent]repre^[above] t^trepresent  two Sorts of People in ^[above] [yt | that]ytthat are^[yt | that]ytthat are the world, and  [Diſtinguiſh | distinguish]Diſtinguiſhdistinguish them one from the other.  the one is Bealiever, and up unbeliev er, Yet Both are [a Sleep | asleep]a Sleepasleep,
The one is in a Dead Sleep, yet  not in a Dead Sleep but it is a  Sinful and abominable Sleep
The other is in a Dead Sleep  a very Dangerous Sleep, they Lie  [expoſ,d | exposed]expoſ,dexposed to [everlaſting | everlasting]everlaſtingeverlasting [Diſtruction | destruction]Diſtructiondestruction  by it —
But Secondly  this text Plainly [repreſents | represents]repreſentsrepresents unto us  the Infinite Mercy of God to us; in  Sending his own Dear Son to a wake us out of this Dangerous yea  [Diſtructive | destructive]Diſtructivedestructive Sleep —
And [laſtly | lastly]laſtlylastly I Shall Conclude  with the Improvement of the wh^[above] o^ole  and have [firſt | first]firſtfirst. — there is Such a  thing as Believers being [a Sleep | asleep]a Sleepasleep  and when they are So, they are unfit  to Serve god. Yea they are [Diſobey ing | disobey ing]Diſobey ingdisobey ing and [Diſhonouring | dishonouring]Diſhonouringdishonouring of him —  we Read of ten [Virgens | virgins]Virgensvirgins, in [Math | Matthew]MathMatthew 25  that were Slumbering and Sleeping  while the Bride[illegible]groom [Taried | tarried]Tariedtarried  till there was a great Cry or a  Loud Call ma[illegible]de, unto them, it  Seems in Such a Language as ^[above] this^this  awake thou [yt | that]ytthat [Sleepeſt | sleepest]Sleepeſtsleepest and [a Riſe | a rise]a Riſea rise from the Dead and [Chriſt | Christ]ChriſtChrist
for behold the Bridegroom Cometh  go ye out to meet him.  and then when they heard this Voce  Heavenly-Voice, and [underſtood | understood]underſtoodunderstood it  they [emediatly | immediately]emediatlyimmediately [Roſe | rose]Roſerose with great  [Confuſion | confusion]Confuſionconfusion and Trembling. it Seems  and when they Came to look about  [themſelves | themselves]themſelvesthemselves they ^[above] found^found [every thing | everything]every thingeverything out of  order, their Lamps were [unprepard | unprepared]unprepardunprepared  they [illegible]are gone out, altogether un fit to Meet the Bridegroom with —  and Now there is [every thing | everything]every thingeverything to do —  and a wvery Short time to do it in  for the [foreruner | forerunner]forerunerforerunner or the Voice of the  Bridegroom is already i[enterd | entered]enterdentered into  the Ears of the [Virgens | virgins]Virgensvirgins, he [yt | that]ytthat ha[illegible][guess (ivys): th]th  behold I Come quickly and my re ward is with me, to give every man  according as his works Shall be —  is now on his way, [Juſt | just]Juſtjust at the  Doors, to [reccond | reckon]reccondreckon with the Virgins —  O! me think there was great  [exerciſe | exercise]exerciſeexercise of heart and mind among  the Virgins at that [Seaſon | season]Seaſonseason
and further — to [Elluſtrate | illustrate]Elluſtrateillustrate this Point  of Truth, let us Compare [Spiri­l– | spiritual]Spiri­lspiritual  Sleep with Natural Sleep, [& | and]&and  See what [reſemblence | resemblance]reſemblenceresemblance there may  be — and here, we know [illegible]by  experience and [obſer[illegible]vation | observation]obſer[illegible]vationobservation, that  a man, that is [a Sleep | asleep]a Sleepasleep is altoge­ ther unfit for [Buſineſs | business]Buſineſsbusiness at [yt | that]ytthat [Seaſon | season]Seaſonseason  he is not Doing the [leaſt | least]leaſtleast [Buſineſs | business]Buſineſsbusiness for  [him­ſelf | himself]him­ſelfhimself for his Relations or his  Neighbours or his King. for he [illegible]  has [Deſiſted | desisted]Deſiſteddesisted and [lay'd | laid]lay'dlaid [aſide | aside]aſideaside all  [Buſineſs | business]Buſineſsbusiness while he Sle^[above] e^eps —  So is a [Chriſtian | Christian]ChriſtianChristian when he is  Spiritually [a Sleep | asleep]a Sleepasleep — —
again when a man is [a Sleep | asleep]a Sleepasleep  he [illegible] is Ignorant and [Sinceleſs | senseless]Sinceleſssenseless of  all the Carryings^[above] on and [illegible][guess (ivys): Con]Con^on and [illegible][guess (ivys): Con]Con [oftthe | of the]ofttheof the world  he is Ignorant of the [agre[illegible]able | agreeable]agre[illegible]ableagreeable ^[above] [illegible]^[illegible]  [Converſation | conversation]Converſationconversation that his Neighbours  have, the News from [a Broad | abroad]a Broadabroad

Again a man [yt | that]ytthat is [a Sleep | asleep]a Sleepasleep  is [Defenceleſs | defenseless]Defenceleſsdefenseless, he is [expoſd | exposed]expoſdexposed to  many Danger's he is liable  to be taken by his Enemies —  a [ſolder | soldier]ſoldersoldier [muſt | must]muſtmust watch
So, is a [Chrn | Christian]ChrnChristian [yt | that]ytthat is [a Sleep | asleep]a Sleepasleep  they are liable to all Dangers  — — — watch and Pray —
