40 1 GROVE CHAPEL PULPtT.Satan's temptations, groan under his repeated assaults, and feelmyself to be a poor accused wretch, with him close to my righthand (Zech. iiL 1). I shall then long for the protection of raycovenant Angel, my powerful Pleader, my all-prevailingAdvocate, who puts to silence every hellish accusation, andbrings me into the presence of His Father, to st^nd in the lightof &a unsullied perfections, glorious as He is glorious, perfectas He is perfect, accepted and complete in Him. As I (^assalong the course of mv strange, eventful, and ever-changinghistory, I sigh for freeii discoveries of the unchanging One :** Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, and to-day, and for ever "(Heb. xiii. 8). He is ever the same in His person, attributes,offices, and promises to me, yet He is ever chancing in therevelation of His goodness to me. In verse 11 we oehold Himin His glorious Oodhead, in His Headship over all thin^ to HisChurch, and as the Head and Husband of His bride, in whomall spiritual blessings abound for her. We also see Him in Hislocks, which are bushy and black as a raven. In these arerevealed His purposes of unchanging love. His promises, whichare all Yea and Amen, and His performances tor us and in usby the power of the Holy Ghost. All these are so great, vast,and glorious as to be utterly incomprehensible to poor humannature ; and as to the child of Ood comprehending them in alltheir fulness, variety, and perfection, it is folly to think of it.Here and there he is privileged with a little unfolding of theglories of the Beloved, and now and then he is indulged witha sweet foretaste and blessed earnest of that perfect bliss andblessedness which will be his when, divested of the burden of the flesh, he shall see Him as He is, and worship Him as heought. " For now we see through a glass darkly ; but thenface-to-face : now I know in part ; but then shall I know evenas also I am known *' (1 Cor. xiii. 12).ow notice the b€»uty of the order in which the bride, bythe Holy Ghost, sets forth the superlative excellencies of herloving Bridegroom. She begins with His head, then describesHis locks, and now speaks of His eyes as the eyes of doves.
