Chapter 15 - Of Repentance Unto Life.

Section 1.) Repentance unto life is an evangelical grace,(1) the doctrine whereof is to be preached by every minister of the Gospel, as well as that of faith in Christ.(2)
(1) Zec 12:10; Ac 11:18. (2) Lk 24:47; Mk 1:15; Ac 22:21.
------------------------------------
Section 2.) By it, a sinner, out of the sight and sense, not only of the danger, but also of the filthiness and odiousness of his sins, as contrary to the holy nature, and righteous law of God; and upon the apprehension of His mercy in Christ to such as are penitent, so grieves for and hates his sins, as to turn from them all unto God,(1) purposingand endeavouring to walk with Him in all the ways of His commandments.(2)
(1) Eze 18:30,31; Eze 36:31; Isa 30:22; Ps 51:4; Jer 31:18,19; Joel 2:12,13; Am 5:15; Ps 119:128; 2Co 7:11. (2) Ps 119:6,59,106; Lk 1:6; 2Ki 23:25.
------------------------------------
Section 3.) Although repentance be not to be rested in, as any satisfaction for sin, or any cause of the pardon thereof,(1) which is the act of God's free grace in Christ;(2) yet it is of such necessity to all sinners, that none may expect pardon without it.(3)
(1) Eze 36:31,32; Eze 16:61-63. (2) Hos 14:2,4; Ro 3:24; Eph 1:7. (3) Lk 13:3,5; Ac 17:30,31.
------------------------------------
Section 4.) As there is no sin so small but it deserves damnation;(1) so there is no sin so great, that it can bring damnation upon those who truly repent.(2)
(1) Ro 6:23; Ro 5:12; Mt 12:36. (2) Isa 55:7; Ro 8:1; Isa 1:16,18.
------------------------------------
Section 5.) Men ought not to content themselves with a general repentance, but it is every man's duty to endeavour to repent of his particular sins particularly.(1)
(1) Ps 19:13; Lk 19:8; 1Ti 1:13,15.
------------------------------------
Section 6.) As every man is bound to make private confession of his sins to God, praying for the pardon thereof (1) upon which, and the forsaking of them, he shall find mercy;(2) so he that scandalizeth his brother, or the Church of Christ, ought to be willing, by a private or public confession and sorrow for his sin, to declare his repentance to those that are offended;(3) who are thereupon to be reconciled to him, and in love to receive him.(4)
(1) Ps 51:4,5,7,9,14; Ps 32:5,6. (2) Pr 28:13; 1Jn 1:9. (3) Jas 5:16; Lk 17:3,4; Josh. 7:19; Ps 51. (4) 2Co 2:8.

  • "And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellow servants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled." ~ (Rev 6:9-11)
