Excerpt from Sermons on Important Subjects: Collected From a Number of Ministers, in Some of the Northern States of America; 1797

N the proghetic writings, future events are fro quently fixprefi'ed, as though they were already accomplifhed. This text is an infiance of it. The words are a prophecy of the tben future preaching of Chrilt. That they have ultimate reference to bim, will appear, by comparing the preceding verles with Hegrews x. 5, 6, 7. Thewords are nearly the fame in both places, and in the latter, have particular reference to Chrilt, as thus Wberefore, wbcn be cometb into tbc world, be/aitb, facri/ice and firing tbou wouldc not, but a body bcyl tbou prepared me in burnt ojferings and facrifices for ft? tbou lug/i bad no pleafure. Tbenfaid I; Lo, I come in tbe volume of tbc book it is wrztten of me to do My will, 0 God. The text'contains a declaration, or profe?ion, which Chr'll would be able and ready to' make, at the clofe of his public minifiry. He told Pilate, that one great end of his coming into the world was, to exhibit the doarines and duties of true reli gion. To this end was I born, and for this caufe camel into the world, thatl lhould bear witnefs unto the truth. In his lafi prayer with his difciples, he appealed to the Father, with te gard to his fidelity: I have glorified the'e on; the earth Ihave'finifhed the work, which thou gavcl't me to It is certainly a favour, which never can be fufficiently efiimated, that ms views of the fyftem of true religion, taken from his own mouth, and recorded foon after wards, havc been preferved, and conveyed down to us, that we may, feverally, fee for ourfelves, and be certified what thofe doétrines afi, which it concerns us to believe, and what thofe duties are, which it concerns us to praé'tife.
