We got a pardon for him with our tears, but he will not have it. So he sets himself to making excuses. Do you hear that gentle rap at your door? If your spiritual ears were opened, you would hear the chariot wheels rolling -- the great judge coming in His car of thunder; you would see the sword of Death gleaming in the air and ready to smite down the hardened sinner. Your heart does condemn you, my heart condemns me when I sin because I know it is a diseased heart - but praise the Lord, God is greater! In this sermon on Romans 10:9-10, Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones examines what the apostles preached in their missionary journeys, and what true salvation looks like. We know that "Christ dwelleth in your hearts by faith" (Ephesians 3:17). It says, “The sin of Judah is . The governor finds himself to be a father. The heart that is wicked is the heart that has departed from God as a result of sin. Alas, they cry, this is worst of all! What will you say? God will not pass over it. No, Why not? I am ready to beg for mercy now; and I rejoice to hear that our God has a father's heart.". This she thought must be very important. Mark those locks wet with the dew. His heart, too, is so fully set within him to do evil that he can not get his own consent to turn from his sins to God. The good of the nation demands it, and I can not allow my sympathies to overrule my sense of justice and my convictions of the public good. Doves and kittens have even more of this than she. Are there no sufficient reasons apparent to your mind why you should give up your heart to God? Now that is a solemn statement from God's Word and I want you to listen to me now as I bring this message. Or suppose the case of a human government which offers rewards to offenders on condition of their returning to obedience. We must recognize that our hearts will not maintain a set course on their own. A good verse to end on would be 2 Corinthians 3:18: “Beholding the glory of the Lord, [we] are being” — this old, horrible, self-exalting, God-opposing heart of mine is being — “transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another.”, John Piper is founder and teacher of desiringGod.org and chancellor of Bethlehem College & Seminary. He is under sentence, but his sentence is not executed speedily. This is all; this the only reason why judgment for a long time has lingered and the sword of justice has not long since smitten you down. Selfishness takes on a thousand forms and types; but each and all are sinful, for the whole mind should give itself up to serve God and to perform every duty as revealed to the reason. The sympathizing neighbors gather round; all are sorrowful, for it is a sad thing and they feel it keenly. All men are bound to fear and obey God, however much self-denial and sacrifice it may cost. What did Eve do? How striking the fact that you may go through the ranks of society and you will meet almost everywhere with this position; the sinner says, "I can not, repent -- I can not believe." Let me walk quickly through the flow of thought from Jeremiah 17:1–9. Jesus may plead with you -- your friends may plead; heaven and hell may lift up their united voices to plead, and every motive that can press on the heart from reason, conscience, hope and fear, angels and devils, God and man, may pass in long and flashing array before your mind -- but alas! And all have sinned, so this is the condition of everyone’s heart before being reconciled to God. Jeremiah 17:9-"The heart is deceitful above all things, And desperately wicked; Who can know it?" But for this you would no more need the Holy Ghost than an angel of light does. But in what direction and to what object is the will of wicked men fully set? With proud disdain he spurns even this last offer of pardon! The will is the faculty which fixes itself upon a chosen course; hence in our text, the will must be meant by the term heart; for otherwise no intelligible sense can be put upon the passage. Their son is sentenced to die, and he sends to see if his father and mother can come and see him before be dies. God says, pray for your dying son! where are the Christian parents that pray as for a sentenced and soon-to-be-executed son! Our God is holier than to look upon iniquity! And now where are the sympathies of all the land? just nothing at all. In the case of this truth, every man knows that he is not himself punished as he has deserved to be in the present Every man sees the same thing in the case of his neighbors. "You are now," says the judge, "remanded to the place from whence you came; there to be kept in irons. Mother Eve, too, was most amiable. THE DECEITFUL HEART Jesse M. Hendley October 11, 1907---November 30, 1994 Jeremiah 17:9 My text is found in Jeremiah, Chapter 17 and verse 9, "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; who can know it?" God's people have felt a deep and agonizing interest in you and are ready now to cry, How can we give them up? The question is from a podcast listener named Micah. Their son went years ago to sea. Is it possible that I have withstood a Saviour's love so long? Yet when my heart condemns me, my God is able to save me! My friend said I was taking a passage about unbelieving hearts and misapplying it to the Christian heart. A Heart that Devises Wicked Plans I. What's the matter? Only think of a state of moral hardihood that can abuse God's richest mercies -- that can coolly say -- God is so good that I will abuse Him all I can; God loves me so much that I shall venture on without fear to insult Him and pervert His long-suffering to the utmost hardening of my soul in sin and rebellion. He comes to your very heart and room, sinner, to offer you the freest possible pardon for all your sin. I said that selfishness often assumes a religious type. But God has provided a glorious testimony in favor of law, going to show that it is in His heart to sustain it at every sacrifice, He could not forgive sin until His injured and insulted law is honored be, fore the universe. He is author of. I do not at all believe He will send me to hell. Now a man may be, as selfish in praying as in stealing, and even far more wicked: for be may more grievously mock God, and more impiously attempt to bribe the Almighty to subserve his own selfish purposes. The judge says I defer the execution that you may have opportunity to secure a pardon from the governor. Despite of God's command, she ate it. 6:16-19 B. `O,' says that fond mother, `I think my daughter is friendly to religion. The dreadful hour arrives, and its last moment -- the drop falls; he trembles a minute under the grasp of Death, and all is still forever! They say they believe the Bible, but do they? And who is it that says, "Their judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not?"REMARKS. They approve the governor's course; they endorse the sentence. The motives of truth may roll mountain high and beat upon his iron heart, yet see how he braces up his nerves to withstand God What can he not resist sooner than submit his will to God Another thing lies in this text, incidentally brought out -- assumed, but not affirmed -- viz., that sinners are already under sentence. And may God have mercy on your soul!" Making this radical mistake, it conceives of the whole Gospel system as a scheme for indulgences. You are sent for to come out for execution. What a perversion and abuse of the gracious design of the King in granting a little respite from instant execution! Ask her to repent and what does she say? "The heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil." For such reasons, execution is usually delayed. What is the matter? O how the whole universe look on with inquisitive wonder to see what Christ has done, and how the sinners for whom He has suffered and done all, requite His amazing love! They look back over the plains of Sodom and see the smoke of her burning ascend up like the smoke of a great furnace. It was also, apparently, good for food, and her appetite became greatly excited; the more she looked the more excited she became, and now what should she do? Now some of the children may take a perfectly selfish view of this offer, and may say within themselves -- Now I will do just enough for father to get his money; I will make him think that I am very zealous for his interests, and I will do just enough to secure the offered rewards; but why should I do any more? What ails that professor who has no spirit of prayer and no power with God? Do they say, How cruel to hang a young man, and for only such a crime? A. Prov. What do you say? When you confront evil, chances are good that the evil heart will stop counseling with you because the darkness hates the light and the foolish and evil heart reject correction (Proverbs 9:7,8). He was, by all accounts, a successful man. Before I do that I shall give a little introduction to the Book of Proverbs as a whole. 1. And the root of that failure is a deceitful and depraved heart. His object is not to break God's law, but to get some good to himself by lying; yet he tells the lie notwithstanding God's prohibition. But after sentence, the case is fully decided. The root problem is that they are trusting in man, not in God. But suppose it is only depravity of the heart, and they come to see it, and know that such must be the case. The culprit takes his seat on the criminal's bench. 1. just where the claims of God come in he seems to have almost an omnipotence of strength to oppose and resist! He was indeed our son, but he was also the son of the devil! They see the need of law and justice; they know that law so outraged must be allowed to vindicate itself in the culprit's execution. A death eternal in hell you know must be far more awful than any public execution on earth. A HEART THAT DEVISES WICKED IMAGINATIONS “And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually” (Genesis 6:5) Men judge our thoughts by our works and ...read more We will show him the pardon and tell him how the governor feels. Having done all this in the sacrifice of His own Son on Calvary, He can forgive without fear of consequences, provided only that each candidate for pardon shall first be penitent. The sentence has passed now -- the court have done their work; it only remains for the sheriff to do his as the executioner of justice and the fearful scene closes. But let us spread out this case a little. The Psalmist was so astounded by the manifest injustice of things in this world, as between the various lots of the righteous and of the wicked, that he was greatly stumbled, "until," says he, "I went into the sanctuary of God; then understood I their end.". When your drop falls, and you gasp, gasp, and die, your guilty, terror-stricken soul goes wailing down the sides of the pit, shall we go away to complain of God and of His justice? God had forbidden her to touch it: shall she obey God, or obey her own excited appetite? You do not believe the simple declaration of Jehovah as it stands recorded on the pages of the Bible. The second thing we are to look is how we are to treat our own heart; what we are to do with our own heart: we are to keep it \"with all diligence\". What! You are altogether committed to the pleasing of self. In the outset the mind may be powerfully affected by some of the great and stirring truths of the Gospel; but it presently comes to take an entirely selfish view, caring only to escape punishment, and make religion a matter of gain. All human beings — no exceptions — are born with this kind of fallen, diseased, deceived, self-exalting, God-opposing heart. Let each sinner observe -- the day of execution is really set. Given on Aug 15, 2015 by Monte Knudson Listen. I know it is sometimes said that sinners love sin for its own sake, out of a pure love of sin as sin, simply because it is disobedience to God, with a natural relish, as wolves love flesh; but this is not true -- certainly not in many cases; but the simple truth is, men do not set their hearts upon the sin for its own sake, but upon sinning for the sake of the good they hope to get from it. With palpitating hearts and a load on their aching bosoms, they plead and plead, but all seems to be in vain. Every man who reads his Bible must see that many things in it are assumed to be true, and that these are precisely those things which every man knows to be true, and which none could know more certainly if God had affirmed them on every page of the Bible. But the text affirms that "the heart of men is fully set in them to do evil." Featuring a sermon puts it on the front page of the site and is the most effective way to bring this sermon to the attention of thousands including all mobile platforms + newsletter. Were ever Romish indulgences worse than this? If your own son were under sentence for execution on earth, how would you feel? 5 Indicators of a Wicked and Evil Heart,Leslie Vernick - Read more about spiritual life growth, Christian living, and faith. One man is avaricious; he sets his heart upon getting rich, honestly, if he can, but rich any way; to get money by fair means if possible, but be sure and get it. I assure you the governor is a most compassionate man -- he loves to grant pardons; he has already pardoned thousands; if you will give up your spirit of rebellion he will most freely forgive you all; I beg of you, therefore, that you will do no such thing as attempt a justification; don't think of escaping death otherwise than by casting yourself upon his mercy; don't flatter yourself that there can be any other refuge. Now, therefore, God's heart of mercy is opened wide and no fear of evil consequences from gratuitous pardons disturbs the exercise of mercy. The same ends are sought in the same spirit; the moral character remains unchanged. If it were in some striking, awful manner revealed to you this night that your soul is damned, you would be thunder-struck. Nay, perhaps he even sets himself to oppose and curse the government, railing at its laws and at its officers, deeming nothing too bad to say of them, indulging himself in the most outrageous opposition, abusing the very men whose mercy has spared his forfeited life! Perhaps some of you think otherwise; you don't believe in such depravity. The parable of the wicked tenants is a statement of God’s concern for his people and a declaration that God’s plan cannot be defeated by man. However, in returning to the bigger context of Jeremiah 17:5–13, I find myself even more convinced verse 9 is equally applicable to believers, especially in light of verses 7 and 8. They rush from his house toward the prison, so delighted that they scarcely touch the ground; coming near they hear songs of merriment, and they say, How our son must be agonized with company and scenes so unsuited and so uncongenial! ... Only they can. . But hear that professedly Christian father pray for his ungodly son. And now the sheriff proclaims, "Just fifteen minutes to live;" and even these minutes be spends in abusing the governor, and insulting the majesty of law. God has no other alternative. So the Bible represents the case of the sinner. Horrible! What is this can not? Suppose it were a human government and a similar state of facts should occur; who does not see that government might as well abdicate at once as forbear to punish? "The heart is desperately wicked" - past cure by human medicine. So, my conclusion is that we can say that Jeremiah 17:9 (the heart is deceitful above all things and desperately sick) is true of the human heart — all of them. Jeremiah 17:9 - The heart [is] deceitful above all [things], and desperately wicked: who can know it? He drinks for the present good it promises -- not for the sake of sinning. Man does not see what the LORD sees, for man sees what is visible, but the LORD sees the heart" (1 Sam. shall the universe take up arms against Jehovah? but since he would not, let him be accursed! viii.11. The parents hasten away to the prison, and learn the details of the painful case. Nothing less or more than a mighty will not! Do you think she is converted?' The scenes and transactions of earth must excite a wonderful interest in heaven. What, O dying sinner, will you say? Because God waited on you long, but you only became in heart more fully set to do evil. Bart Carlson. As they are talking over these things and searching from time to time all the newspapers they can find, to get, if they can, some clew to their son's history, all at once the door-bell rings; a messenger comes in and hands a letter; the old father takes it, breaks the seal -- reads a word and suddenly falls back in his seat, the letter drops from his hand; oh, he can't read it! But right over against this, see the case of the sinner, condemned to an eternal hell. He has no idea of being executed; he swears he will burn down the governor's house; indeed, he manifests a most determined spirit, as if his heart were fully set on evil. Let's look at who God sees as wicked and see if we see any wicked way in us. Most people in the world have no experience of lasting joy in their lives. You don't know but this is the very day and hour set for his execution. We are not to suppose that men set their heart upon these sins out of love to pure wickedness; but they do wickedly for the sake of the good they hope to gain thereby. He knows you have sinned greatly and grievously, but O, He says -- My compassions have been bleeding and gushing forth toward you these many days. And his answer is verse 9: “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it?” So, the human heart is diseased with sin and in the sway of deceit. How the case burns upon their hearts! Notice particularly now the language, "heart fully set to do evil." He has not the remotest idea of making such a committal of himself to God's interests that he shall henceforth be in perfect sympathy with God, desiring and seeking only God's interests, and having no interests other than God's to serve at all. . Can it be found anywhere else in the universe but in this crazy world? I am simply a martyr to truth and justice I At all events, I have done nothing very bad -- nothing that any government ought to notice. Whatever is on the inside will eventually come out—whether good or bad. What is the matter? So of stealing, adultery, and other sins. O no, not converted, but I think she is friendly; she feels favorably toward religion. God says in Jeremiah 17:5–6, “Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his strength, whose heart turns away from the Lord. How astounding! This fact is not indeed affirmed, but it is assumed, as it is also everywhere throughout the Bible. How long since you heard from him? Human laws may possibly fail of execution: God's laws can fail never! They turn sadly away, not caring even to bid him farewell. I can not repent of my sin, she says. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies (Matthew 15:19). You’ve heard that “deceitfully wicked” phrase from the Old Testament, but is such an indictment applicable to the regenerated Christian heart? Look at those hands. But the agonized parents must hold on. After this solemn transaction, execution is commonly deferred for a period longer or shorter according to circumstances. The real spirit of the offer goes the length of asking the sincere devotion of their hearts to the best good of the government. The judge arises -- all is still as death; he reviews the case, and comes shortly to the solemn conclusion: you are convicted by this court of the crime alleged, and now you are to receive your sentence. One general fact is asserted of them all, and in this way they are assumed to have a common character. I will dare to tempt His forbearance yet. Yet make another supposition. This is the unresponsive heart. Have they not been pierced? This is worse than all the rest. Oh, I want to be like that, right? She will tell you she can not.". Gone to California. He is like a shrub in the desert, and shall not see any good come.” That’s the root problem of the idolatry and the sin. Shall we turn and curse God? You may see this exemplified in the view which some take of the imputation of Christ's righteousness, which they suppose to be reckoned to them while they are living in sin. Even those aged parents have not a word of complaint to utter. They see at a glance that there can be no hope of release but in a pardon. You who have attended courts of justice know that after trial and conviction next comes sentence. That newness consists in the presence of the heart-influencing Holy Spirit and in the new nature. O how fearfully strong is the sinner's heart against God! New nature is brought into being. When it arrives, there can be no more delay. All of our resources exist to guide you toward everlasting joy in Jesus Christ. The text also shows what the moral type of the sinner's heart is: "fully set to do evil." Many tender ties has she, no doubt, but they are all under the control of a perfectly selfish heart. The first thing we shall look at is the heart: \"Keep thy heart...\". So, my conclusion is that we can say that Jeremiah 17:9 (the heart is deceitful above all things and desperately sick) is true of the human heart — all of them. "God saw that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually." The object may be either to give the criminal opportunity to secure a pardon, or if there be no hope of this, at least to give him some days or weeks for serious reflection in which he may secure the peace of his soul with God. That amiable lady insists that she is not much depraved. They tell him how much it has cost them and how tenderly the governor feels in the case. There is nothing more that we can do. O what a conflict in their minds! All man thought about was evil continually. The selfish heart forms alike the basis of each system. “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” Consider this first phrase. Now He comes in the person of His Spirit and invites you in. But they pronounce it just, and have not one word of complaint to utter. This is the reason that the world was destroyed by a flood - Gen. 6:5-7. This is not only Satan's workhouse in the soul; but it may be viewed as a purveyor, which the heart engages in making provision for its lusts. The licentious man would perhaps be glad if it were not wicked to gratify his passion; but wicked though it is, he sets his heart to do it. “Blessed is the man” — not cursed is the man who trusts in man — “who trusts in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord. As if he supposed he could make the Searcher of hearts his own tool; he may insolently try to induce Him to play into his own hands, and thus may most grievously tempt Him to His face. Po you see that visage, so marred more than any man's -- and you are only the more fully set to do evil? But where God is applying the blood-bought purchase of the new covenant, there is a new creation. They come to the door; they gain admittance and show him the pardon. To the yet living sinner, I have it to say today that the hour of your execution has not yet arrived. Is the Christian’s heart deceitfully wicked? No further doubt of guilt can interpose to affect the case; the possibility of pardon is the only remaining hope. Because you might have had mercy, but you would not. Downloads. Throughout the New Testament, we see that the apostles preach that saving faith is not only in the mind, but that it must include a change of heart. But we need not say "if"; we know full well that there is much wickedness in us. Who is it that comes? Jeremiah 17:9-10. Those are other gods. Because they saw it was beautiful, and they were told it would make them wise; hence, for the good they hoped to gain, and despite of God's prohibition, they took and ate. How much do you feel? A Deceitful and Wicked Heart. Yet this text affirms just this to be the case of the sinner, and all observation sustains it. Everybody knows that ours is not a state of present rewards and punishments; the experience and observation of every man testifies to this fact with convincing power, Hence it is entirely proper that the Bible should assume it as a known truth. You have seen it acted over ten thousand tunes; you can look back and see it in your own case. Well, we must go to our desolate home. Ah, say they, that is distressing; but we can subdue his wicked and proud heart. Our God is greater than man's depravity! Let me suppose that here is a father and also a mother in this house, and you have a child whom you know and admit to be under sentence of death. He hardly knows or thinks what he is praying about. I shall live as long as the best of you." Although He has no pleasure in the sinner's death, and although He will never slay you because He delights in it, yet how can He do otherwise than execute His law if He would sustain it? Authentic Christianity begins when God replaces the wicked heart with a clean, new heart: Giving up their hearts to a refined selfishness, they repel God's most righteous claims, and they are fallen! And how can He excuse Himself for any failure in sustaining it? There are three thoughts I want to bring to you. those weeping eyes! In a moment I shall look at three things that are to be found in my text. Will you close in at once with terms of mercy and come to Jesus? I'll go on still in my sins? Holy Spirit is poured in. engraved on the tablet of their heart . Does she meet the claims of God like a friend to His government and to His reputation? But we must here pause a moment to inquire what is meant in our passage by the term "heart.". It is obvious that this term is used in the Bible in various shades of meaning; sometimes for the conscience, as in the passage which affirms, "If our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart," and may be expected the more to condemn us; sometimes the term is used for the intelligence; but here most evidently for the will, because this is the only faculty of the mind which can be said to be set -- fixed -- bent, determined upon a given course of voluntary action. So, the overall point of the passage seems to be that the root of sin and idolatry is a failure to trust in God rather than self. They say, We did think he would accept the pardon! He seizes it, tears it to pieces, and tramples it under his feet! His heart may become fully set upon the practice of lying whenever it suits his convenience, and for the good he hopes thus to gain; and it is in vain that God labors by fearful prohibitions and penalties to dissuade him from his course. But where God is applying the blood-bought purchase of the new covenant, there is a new creation. Best of you. them all, and they have not a word complaint...
