Sermon, 2 Corinthians 5:17, 1766 July 13


[note (type: abstract): Occom's sermon on the text "Therefore if any man be in Christ he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things become new".][note (type: handwriting): Handwriting is small, but clear and legible.][note (type: paper): Very small sheets folded and sewn together into a booklet are in good condition, with minimal staining and wear.][note (type: ink): Brown ink varies in intensity over the course of the manuscript.][note (type: noteworthy): At the top of one recto, an editor, likely 19th-century, has added the note " '766 Ser. at Mr. Olding's." This note has not been transcribed. The top of the last page is uncut, and so there are no images for five verso and six recto. On six verso, there is a recipe, likely for an herbal remedy, in Occom's hand.]

2 [Corinth | Corinthians]CorinthCorinthians 5:17

Therefore if any man be in  [XJ | Christ Jesus]XJChrist Jesus he is a new Creature: [&c | etc.]&cetc.
Regeneration is a doctrine  much [Diſpiſd | despised]Diſpiſddespised by ma^[above] n^ny, but  it is a Doctrine of the Bible, and  therefore it is a [Supſtantial | substantial]Supſtantialsubstantial  Doctrine, it is a Spiritual  Doctrine, and it is not to be  [underſtood | understood]underſtoodunderstood but by Spiritual  [underſtanding | understanding]underſtandingunderstanding — I [believ'd | believed]believ'dbelieved ^[above] it is^it is gene­ rally [own'd | owned]own'downed by [thoſe | those]thoſethose, who [belive | believe]belivebelieve[illegible]
the Bible to be the word of god.  that we [muſt | must]muſtmust be [godd | good]goddgood [Some how | somehow]Some howsomehow  before we are fit to go to Heaven,  and this is good [Reaſoning | reasoning]Reaſoningreasoning, for if  we believe Heaven to be a good Place  we [muſt | must]muſtmust be good, if it be a Holy  place, we [muſt | must]muſtmust be Holy, if it  be a pure Place, we [muſt | must]muſtmust be  pure, if it be Spiritual, we  [muſt | must]muſtmust Spiritual, or [elſe | else]elſeelse we can't  Enjoy Heaven, Yea if god be  Holy, we [muſt | must]muſtmust be holy in order  to [ſerve | serve]ſerveserve him here and in the world  to Come, or in other words, to En­ joy him in this world and in  the World to Come —  we are ready to Conclude, that
a poor Begger, in his filthy,  Ragged Garments, is not fit  to go into the Kings Palace  and to Serve him there, and  we [Shou'd | should]Shou'dshould not ^[above] like^like a Swine, in his  filth to Dwell in our [Houſes | houses]Houſeshouses;  so an unholy Man is no mor^[above] e^e  fit to [illegible]Enter into Heaven, the  Habitation of God, —  And therefore we [muſt | must]muſtmust be holy,  and god has found out a way  for us to become holy,. and  it is by being in [Chriſt | Christ]ChriſtChrist  Now if any man be in [Chriſt | Christ]ChriſtChrist  he is a New Creature, old  othings are [paſsed | passed]paſsedpassed [a way | away]a wayaway,
and behold all things are  become new — —  In further Speaking upon  [theſe | these]theſethese words I Shall Endeavour  to Show by the Help of God —
1. What it is to be ^[above] in^in [Chriſt | Christ]ChriſtChrist
2. Such are new Creatures
3. to Such all old thing are  done away and all thing  are become a new —
1. Then what it is to be in  [Chriſt | Christ]ChriſtChrist — to be in [X | Christ]XChrist is to be  united to him by a living  
  Faith, in other words,  to believe and receive [JX | Jesus Christ]JXJesus Christ  as he is [offer'd | offered]offer'doffered in the [Goſpel | Gospel]GoſpelGospel  to be the only [Sutable | suitable]Sutablesuitable Savi­ our, to rely upon him  for what he has done  to ^[above] be^be in [XJ | Christ Jesus]XJChrist Jesus, is to have the  Image of [JX | Jesus Christ]JXJesus Christ [reinſtampt | restamped]reinſtamptrestamped in  us and to have his Spirit  ^[above] in^in us, Yea to be in [Chirſt | Christ]ChirſtChrist  is to have [Chriſt | Christ]ChriſtChrist Dwelling  in us, and we in him —
