Jonathan Edwards – Account of the Revival in Northhampton 1740-1742

I

In the year 1740, in the spring before Mr. Whitefield came to this town, there was a visible alteration: there was more seriousness and religious conversation, especially among young people; those things that were of ill tendency among them, were forborne; and it was a very frequent thing for persons to consult their minister upon the salvation of their souls; and in some particular persons there appeared a great attention, about that time.

John Owen – Treatise Of Temptation 2

How we may know when any temptation is come to its high noon, and is in its hour.1st. It doth the first by several ways: —

Hannah More, 1811_ INSENSIBILITY TO ETERNAL THINGS

Only suppose if they could be permitted to come back to this world, if they were allowed another period of trial, how they would spend their restored life! How earnest would be their penitence, how intense their devotion, how profound their humility, how holy their actions! Think then that you still have in your power that for which they would give millions of worlds. “Hell,” says one writer, “is truth seen too late.”

The Death Bed of a Free Thinker – Sir Francis Newport

Sir Francis Newport, head of the English Infidel Club, said to those gathered around his death bed, “Do not tell me there is no God for I know there is one, and that I am in his angry presence! You need not tell me there is no hell, for I already feel my soul slipping into its fires! Wretches, cease your idle talk about there being hope for me! I know that I am lost forever.”

Herein it is proved that Christ hath not presented
to bis Fathers justice and satisfaction for the sins of all
men; but only for the sins of those that do, or shall believe
in him ; which are his Elect only : And the objections
of those that maintain the contrary are all answered.
