It will not be denied by those to whom our blessed Saviour's life is familiar; to whom the many prophecies relating to him in the Old Testament are well known that to Jesus Christ alone these passages relate.

He, having fulfilled all things therein predicted of him, has re-ascended to the right hand of God; there to reign for ever, "King of Kings, and Lord of Lords;" in Trinity, and Unity, of the Godhead.

Thus have we proved the superintending providence of Him, to whom the Psalmist exclaimed; "O Lord God of Hosts, who is like unto thee: thy truth, most mighty Lord, is on every side. Thou rulest the raging of the sea thou stillest the waves thereof, when they arise !"

SERMON V.

THE COMING OF CHRIST.

PSALM LXXXIX. 26, 27, 28.

I WILL SET HIS DOMINION ALSO IN THE SEA, AND HIS RIGHT HAND IN THE FLOODS. HE SHALL CALL ME, THOU ART MY FATHER: MY GOD, AND MY STRONG SALVATION. AND I WILL MAKE HIM, MY FIRST-BORN, HIGHER THAN THE KINGS OF THE EARTH.

RESUMING the consideration of this sublime Psalm of the Inspired, and Royal Prophet David, we find that the coming of the Messiah is more plainly expressed in our text. And if the first part was so well deserving our attention; surely so interesting a subject as the everlasting Kingdom of our great Redeemer must awaken our serious, most earnest enquiry.

for no other actual Son of the Highest is on record in Holy Writ, than Christ Jesus. Angels proclaimed his Nativity to the Jewish shepherds of Bethlehem; and told them how, and where, the new-born Saviour should be found. "Unto you is born this day, in the city of David, a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And suddenly there was with the Angel a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God, and saying; glory to God in the highest; and on Earth peace, good will towards men."

Such were the wonders accompanying the immaculate conception of our blessed Redeemer by the Virgin Mary; a descendant from David himself; and coming to her own City to be taxed with the other natives of Bethlehem, the City of David.

Such was the birth of "Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews;" whom they crucified, whom we adore.

He was that Jesus, of whom his Almighty Father declared, "this is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased." And again the Highest bore testimony to our blessed Master, and only Saviour, Jesus Christ; when he "this is my beloved Son; hear him."
