are merry, as though all were well. And little think what is just before them-The day of accounts drawing nigh; a day of darkness; of gloominess; and of thick darkness; and of great wrath!
Awake, O stupid sinner! Look round; see what you do; see where you are and consider what will be the end. Can your hands be strong, or your heart endure, O, guilty rebel, when GOD ALMIGHTY shall come forth to deal with you, according to your crimes!
Behold, now is a day of grace: and God is ready to be reconciled a door of mercy is opened, by the blood of the Son of GoD: pardon and peace are proclaimed to a rebellious guilty world. Repent, therefore, and be converted; that your sins may be blotted out. But if after your hardness and impenitent heart, you will venture to go on, treasuring up wrath against the day of wrath; you are like to know it, to your everlasting sorrow, that it is a fearful and horrible thing, to sin against the LORD.
