    But , careless sinner , learn that thy salvation now hangs in God's hand . Oh , remember thou art entirely in the hand of God . Thou hast sinned against him , and if he wills to damn thee , damned thou art . Thou canst not resist his will nor thwart his purpose . Thou hast deserved his wrath , and if he chooses to pour the full shower of that wrath upon thy head , thou canst do nothing to avert it . If , on the other hand , he chooses to save thee , he is able to save thee to the very uttermost . But thou liest as much in his hand as the summer's moth beneath thine own finger . He is the God whom thou art grieving every day . Doth it not make thee tremble to think that thy eternal destiny now hangs upon the will of him whom thou hast angered and incensed ? Dost not this make thy knees knock together , and thy blood curdle ? If it does so I rejoice , inasmuch as this may be the first effect of the Spirit's drawing in thy soul . Oh , tremble to think that the God whom thou hast angered , is the God upon whom thy salvation or thy condemnation entirely depends . Tremble and " kiss the Son lest he be angry and ye perish from the way while his wrath is kindled but a little ."

    I do not see a question here. You seem to be advocating hyper-Calvinism and there are other
    views on this subject, things that have been debated for centuries now, and are matters of contention on this board.

    Tremble and " kiss the Son lest he be angry and ye perish from the way while his wrath is kindled but a little ."
    But this is impossible for the non-elect from the Calvinist's perspective.

    Sounds like an excerpt from "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God".......

    but isn't that sermon directed to an unrepentant congregation that needed some "scare" put into them?

    Is there one man in the whole world who would have the impertinence to say that he merits anything of his Maker ? If so , be it known unto you that he shall have all he merits ; and his reward will be the flames of hell forever , for that is the utmost that any man ever merited of God . God is in no debt to man , and at the last great day every man shall have as much love , as much pity , as much goodness , as he deserves . Even the lost in hell shall have all they deserve ; and woe worth the day for them when they shall have the wrath of God , which will be the summit of their deservings . If God gives to every man as much as he merits , is He therefore to be accused of injustice because He gives to some infinitely more than they merit ?

    [ AW Pink quotation of CHS in his book called " The Doctrine of Election " , chapter 5 -- ' Its Justice " . After the Spurgeon quote Pink stated : " How many who now speak of him eulogistically , and refer to him as ' beloved Spurgeon , ' would gnash their teeth and execrate him were they to hear his faithful and plain-spoken preaching . " ]
