Delivered by Jonathan Edwards on July 8, 1741, this sermon is the most famous sermon preached on American soil. It also sparked a fire which became known as the Great Awakening. This is a church reading by Max McLean at LCB Church but it is still a great, free reading! I am not aware of any restrictions on the.

Jonathan Edwards was a Protestant theologian and a leading revivalist preacher during the Great Awakening. Edwards wrote Freedom of the Will in the 18th century while working as a missionary to a tribe of Housatonic Native Americans in Massachusetts. He carefully drew out the differences of thought between the Calvinist and Arminian theologies and sided with the Calvinist views on humanity's will. Edwards sought to understand God's foreknowledge and how it related to free will and the ability to choose between good and evil.

3. Their foot shall slide in due time. 2. They deserve to be cast into hell; so that divine justice never stands in the way, it makes no objection against God’s using his power at any moment to destroy them. Yea, on the contrary, justice calls aloud for an infinite punishment of their sins. Divine justice says of the tree that brings forth such grapes of Sodom, Cut it down, why cumbereth it the ground? Luke xiii.

An excellent read. Clears up the foggy representation of Church life so commonly represented by Western culture. Due to its simplicity and relatively short read, I purchased several of these I intend to give out with tracts I use "Life is a Gift" by G. W. North.
"Life Is a Gift"
Human life is a gift. However it develops later on, it starts as a gift. We say that a mother gives birth to a child. No-one ever thinks of saying he gave himself life or birth. We all recognize that both were given to us. We did not work for or earn the life we have, nor did we even desire or will it. We came into the world for better or worse, without any say in the matter. We were just born. Whatever the known biological facts, it is God who gives the breath of life to every living soul.
Eternal spiritual life is as much a gift as natural life is. So Jesus Christ says, “You must be born again.” There is no alternative. How can a man believe he must be born naturally and yet not believe he must also be born spiritually? The man in the Bible to whom Jesus said, “You must be born again” never questioned the necessity of it, nor did he imagine there was any alternative to it. He was only baffled as to the possibility of it. He did not say “Why?” but “How?” Is there an enlightened soul anywhere on earth who will deny that he also needs a new life - not just a different, reformed, amended life, but an altogether new one?
God sent Jesus Christ into this world to meet that need. He says, “I have come that you may have life,” plainly implying that man has not begun to live until he receives the life that Jesus offers. He did not say, “I have come to add to your existing life, to help you improve or mend it, or make atonement for the past.” He has no intention of doing any such thing, for that is man’s way, whether by politics, science, education, philosophy or religion. God’s way is by birth, and because it is God’s way it must be man’s, for man has no choice in the matter. God ordained the birth-way for mankind. To have natural life you must be born. Similarly, to have eternal life you must be born again.
Nowhere is it disputed that the life of Jesus Christ is the most desirable of all lives this earth has ever witnessed. Its righteousness, purity, holiness, love and power were indestructible and proved unconquerable, even by death itself. Being of such quality, it is eternal. A person and his life are one. It can therefore be easily seen that no man can possibly have Jesus’ personal life until Jesus comes into him, for Jesus is that life. He is God’s gift to you. He was and is and ever will be God’s Son - God was His Father. God, wishing to give you eternal life, will give birth and life to you if you will fulfill His conditions. Whoever you are, God’s will is to give you that same eternal life that was in the Man Jesus. But in order to have it you must be born again. Our first birth was entirely physical, but the second birth is an entirely spiritual one. It is a miracle of God.
Are you prepared to begin all over again? Do you really want to make a completely new start? There are few who do not wish at heart that they could be different. Have you at times honestly wished you could live your life all over again? Then here is your opportunity. At this point receive inward assurance that you have the power to do what God requires of you. Only believe and God will do the miracle. The power is called faith, which is simply the determined response of your whole being to God. Do it now.

Be definite by a sincere act of will:

1. Turn absolutely from the past.

2. Believe on God’s Son Jesus Christ with your whole heart.
3. Receive Him into your entire being; confess Him as your own indwelling Savior and Lord.

This is the act of cooperation God requires of you. He will then by His Spirit give you birth into His family. This is the only way you can be born again. From that moment onward you may not go back to live your life all over again. It must be understood that it is precisely that old life with which you must part in order to have the new. Jesus Christ will now live in you and do His Father’s will through you. This is that new and eternal life that God will give you.
Maybe in the past you have given promises, made decisions, and vowed vows to be different. God is not unmindful of them all, but by themselves they will not be of any use. Man cannot give himself birth or life. Not the greatest amount of sincere trying can do that. Believe God now. Receive God’s Son, Jesus Christ, right into your own self and God will do the rest. Life - eternal life - is a gift." – by G.W. North
Edwards truly gave an inspired sermon. If you read the preface it shares he showed no emotion, didn’t focus on anyone and only read what he wrote. Unlike his contemporaries he was not a theatrical individual, and yet this sermon is viewed as one of the most powerful revival deliveries ever produced. As a Christian justified in the blood of Christ, I was very moved by his words. I felt the pains of sadness for those individuals who still haven’t accepted Jesus as their personal savior. While I want to think this sermon might convince some who don’t know Jesus to become born again, I am not sure it will. Non believers might think Edward’s words and supported scripture is just another ridiculous act to scare people to convert. At least some in my family would think that. It is why I pray daily that they and others will find their way to Christ and realize the purity of His love as none other.
After buying and reading Jonathan Edwards' sermon "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God," it's not hard to see why it was considered by some to be his most important message, if not one of the most important messages preached in America, regardless of the time period. In our present culture of "social engineering" it's rare to hear that a sovereign and righteous God the creator of all things could be "angry!" After all, God is "love" how dare anyone judge Him angry! And yet, as Edwards instructs, anyone who rejects the price of their redemption, paid in full by the precious blood of God's only Son will justifiably receive God's full wrath and eternal damnation. The only thing preventing God's wrath and judgement is His overwhelming love and mercy; He holds out the opportunity for one to accept His Son's sacrificial death on the cross until their very last breath, beyond that, a righteous God must condemn. Let him who has eyes see and him that has ears hear, before it's too late.
I facilitate a weekly men's bible study and we were preparing to begin an eight week session on another Amazon book, "Heaven Revealed" by Paul Enns. It seemed a good idea that before we began to read and discuss Heaven, we should, perhaps, study a bit about Hell. So we looked at C.S. Lewis's chapter on Hell in his "The Problem of Pain," and Jonathan Edwards' "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God." Jonathan Edwards "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God" is the transcript of his multiple-hour sermon which he delivered in Enfield, Connecticut, on July 8, 1741.

Jonathan Edwards was a brilliant man who spoke with a quiet voice and who had severe myopia (nearsightedness). When he delivered his sermon, he did it hunched over and with his voice projecting downward. Never-the-less, it is said people listening were screaming in fear and grasping tightly onto pews so they wouldn't fall into destruction. Why that reaction by his hearers is a great reason to read this very special book!

The entire sermon uses Deuteronomy 32:35 ("Their foot shall slide in due time...") to warn of the consequence for unbelievers. In our culture where God is so often portrayed as "love" we may forget that God is also pure and holy and has no tolerance for sin. This sermon speaks to the this side of God and the lot of sinners who die without Christ. It isn't a pretty picture that Edwards paints. The reason this sermon is considered a Christian classic is that his words are timeless, blunt and soul-piercing.

Our men's group gained immensely from the three sessions we devoted to this great book. It prepared us for the much more positive study of Heaven. I recommend it highly!
