Final Volume of our Reformed Systematic Theology

Today Paul Smalley and I sent in the final volume of our Reformed Systematic Theology (volume 4, covering the doctrine of the church and the doctrine of the last things in some eleven hundred pages) to our editor at Crossway for publication next year, D.V.

We wish to humbly thank the Lord for enabling us to complete this eight-year project and ask for prayer that God will bless it to hundreds of thousands of readers in English and in a variety of other languages into which it is presently being translated and published. Soli Deo gloria!

An Appointment You Will Keep

Make haste, sinner, for your life’s sake. The thread of your life is not yet cut, but it is growing increasingly thin and brittle. The Lord still calls to you, “As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live; turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die?” (Ezek. 33:11).

The door of grace is still open. The throne of Christ is not yet shut. Will you hear His voice before it is too late? “Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him” (Ps. 2:12).

All those who have lived without God on earth shall be without God in hell. How terrible it shall be to experience with the rich man in Luke 16, “In hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments…. And he cried…I am tormented in this flame.”

Dear friend, I desire to warn you with love. You and I cannot escape death. It is an appointment we will keep—regardless. Are you prepared to die?
