Chapter 18: Of the Assurance of Grace and Salvation

 

1. Hypocrites[1] and other unregenerate men may vainly deceive themselves with false hopes and carnal[2] presumptions of being in the favor of God and a state of salvation;a this hope of theirs will perish.b But those who truly believe in the Lord Jesus, love Him in sincerity, and endeavor to walk in all good conscience before Him, may in this life be certainly assured that they are in the state of grace.c Further, they may rejoice in the hope of the glory of God, a hope that will never make them ashamed.d

2. This certainty is not a bare conjectural[3] and probable persuasion, grounded upon a fallible hope.a Rather, it is an infallible assurance of [saving] faith, founded upon:

·       The divine truth of the promises of salvationb

·       The inward evidence of those graces [character qualities, virtues] to which Scripture attaches promisesc

·       The testimony of the Spirit of adoption witnessing with our spirits that we are the children of God.d The Spirit is the earnest of our inheritance, by which we are sealed to the day of redemption.e

3. This infallible assurance does not belong to the essence of faith. Therefore a true believer may wait long and contend with many difficulties before he becomes a partaker of it.a However, being enabled by the Spirit to know the things that are freely given to him by God, he may attain assurance, without extraordinary revelation, through the right use of ordinary means.b Therefore it is the duty of everyone to give all diligence to make his calling and election sure.c Thus his heart may be enlarged[4] in peace and joy in the Holy Spirit, in love and thankfulness to God, and in strength and cheerfulness in the duties of obedience. These are the proper fruits of this assurance;d in a true believer, assurance does not at all incline him to looseness.e

4. In different ways, true believers may have the assurance of their salvation shaken, diminished, and intermitted,[5] by things like:

  • Negligence in preserving it
  • By falling into some special sin, which wounds the conscience and grieves the Spirit
  • By some sudden or vehement temptation
  • By God’s withdrawing the light of His countenance and allowing even those who fear Him to walk in darkness and to have no light.a

Yet are they never utterly destitute of that:

  • seed of God, and life of faith
  • love of Christ and the brethren
  • sincerity of heart, and conscience of duty

out of which, by the operation of the Spirit, this assurance may be revived in due time.b And by which also, in the mean time, they are supported from utter despair.c

O Lord, God of my salvation; I cry out day and night before you. 2Let my prayer come before you; incline your ear to my cry! 3For my soul is full of troubles, and my life draws near to Sheol. 4I am counted among those who go down to the pit; I am a man who has no strength, 5like one set loose among the dead, like the slain that lie in the grave, like those whom you remember no more, for they are cut off from your hand. 6You have put me in the depths of the pit, in the regions dark and deep. 7Your wrath lies heavy upon me, and you overwhelm me with all your waves. Selah 8You have caused my companions to shun me; you have made me a horror to them. I am shut in so that I cannot escape; 9my eye grows dim through sorrow. Every day I call upon you, O Lord; I spread out my hands to you. 10Do you work wonders for the dead? Do the departed rise up to praise you? Selah 11Is your steadfast love declared in the grave, or your faithfulness in Abaddon? 12Are your wonders known in the darkness, or your righteousness in the land of forgetfulness? 13But I, O Lord, cry to you; in the morning my prayer comes before you. 14O Lord, why do you cast my soul away? Why do you hide your face from me? 15Afflicted and close to death from my youth up, I suffer your terrors; I am helpless. 16Your wrath has swept over me; your dreadful assaults destroy me. 17They surround me like a flood all day long; they close in on me together. 18You have caused my beloved and my friend to shun me; my companions have become darkness.

3 For my soul is full with evils, and my life draws near Sheol.

4 I am counted with those who go down to the Pit; I have been like a man without strength,

5 free among the dead, as pierced ones lying in the grave, whom You remember no more; yea, by Your hand they are cut off.

6 You have laid me in the lowest pit, in dark places, in the deeps.

7 Your fury has lain hard upon me, and You afflict me with all Your waves. Selah.

8 You have taken ones knowing me from me; You have made me a disgusting thing to them; I am shut up, I will not go out.

9 My eye mourns because of affliction; O Jehovah, I have called on You every day; I have spread out my palms to You.

10¶ For will You do wonders for those dying? Or shall the departed spirits rise and thank You? Selah.

11 Shall Your mercy be declared in the grave, Your faithfulness amidst ruin?

12 Shall Your wonders be known in the dark, and Your righteousness in the land of forgetfulness?

13 But to You I have cried, O Jehovah; and in the morning my prayer shall go before You.

14 O Jehovah, why do You cast off my soul; why do You hide Your face from me?

15 I am an afflicted one and dying from youth; I suffer Your terrors; I am distracted.

16 Your fierce wrath passes over me; Your terrors have cut me off.

17 They surrounded me like waters all the day; they have together gone around me.

18 You have taken lover and friend far from me, he who knows me, into darkness.

Are his promises at an end for all time? 9Has God forgotten to be gracious? Has he in anger shut up his compassion?” Selah 10Then I said, “I will appeal to this, to the years of the right hand of the Most High.” 11I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your wonders of old. 12I will ponder all your work, and meditate on your mighty deeds.

1A Song. A Psalm of the Sons of Korah. To the choirmaster: according to Mahalath Leannoth. A Maskil of Heman the Ezrahite. O Lord, God of my salvation; I cry out day and night before you. 2Let my prayer come before you; incline your ear to my cry! 3For my soul is full of troubles, and my life draws near to Sheol. 4I am counted among those who go down to the pit; I am a man who has no strength, 5like one set loose among the dead, like the slain that lie in the grave, like those whom you remember no more, for they are cut off from your hand. 6You have put me in the depths of the pit, in the regions dark and deep. 7Your wrath lies heavy upon me, and you overwhelm me with all your waves. Selah 8You have caused my companions to shun me; you have made me a horror to them. I am shut in so that I cannot escape; 9my eye grows dim through sorrow. Every day I call upon you, O Lord; I spread out my hands to you. 10Do you work wonders for the dead? Do the departed rise up to praise you? Selah 11Is your steadfast love declared in the grave, or your faithfulness in Abaddon? 12Are your wonders known in the darkness, or your righteousness in the land of forgetfulness? 13But I, O Lord, cry to you; in the morning my prayer comes before you. 14O Lord, why do you cast my soul away? Why do you hide your face from me? 15Afflicted and close to death from my youth up, I suffer your terrors; I am helpless. 16Your wrath has swept over me; your dreadful assaults destroy me. 17They surround me like a flood all day long; they close in on me together. 18You have caused my beloved and my friend to shun me; my companions have become darkness.

1A Song. A Psalm for the Sons of Korah, to the chief musician on Mahalath, to make humble. A Poem of Heman the Ezrahite. O Jehovah God of my salvation, I have cried in the day, in the night before You.

2 Let my prayer come before You; stretch out Your ear to my cry.

3 For my soul is full with evils, and my life draws near Sheol.

4 I am counted with those who go down to the Pit; I have been like a man without strength,

5 free among the dead, as pierced ones lying in the grave, whom You remember no more; yea, by Your hand they are cut off.

6 You have laid me in the lowest pit, in dark places, in the deeps.

7 Your fury has lain hard upon me, and You afflict me with all Your waves. Selah.

8 You have taken ones knowing me from me; You have made me a disgusting thing to them; I am shut up, I will not go out.

9 My eye mourns because of affliction; O Jehovah, I have called on You every day; I have spread out my palms to You.

10¶ For will You do wonders for those dying? Or shall the departed spirits rise and thank You? Selah.

11 Shall Your mercy be declared in the grave, Your faithfulness amidst ruin?

12 Shall Your wonders be known in the dark, and Your righteousness in the land of forgetfulness?

13 But to You I have cried, O Jehovah; and in the morning my prayer shall go before You.

14 O Jehovah, why do You cast off my soul; why do You hide Your face from me?

15 I am an afflicted one and dying from youth; I suffer Your terrors; I am distracted.

16 Your fierce wrath passes over me; Your terrors have cut me off.

17 They surrounded me like waters all the day; they have together gone around me.

18 You have taken lover and friend far from me, he who knows me, into darkness.

[1] hypocrite: New Testament Greek word for stage actor. By extension, it also meant a pretender or one who hides under a false appearance. The word has thus come to have a primary meaning of someone who is pretending in religion. The hypocrite may be self-deceived. A secondary meaning is of one who acts in a manner contrary to his or her stated beliefs.

[2] carnal: of the flesh, worldly, not from God, as opposed to spiritual

[3] conjecture: a guess founded upon insufficient evidence

[4] enlarged hearts: This phrase eludes exact definition. As generally used in the seventeenth century, it refers to swelling or filling up the heart with gratitude and affection or making room in the heart for them. In the present context, it refers to having one’s heart open, obedient, and receptive to God, with praise and thankfulness, and ready to receive grace from God. It implies close communion with God. Elsewhere and more narrowly, it may mean being receptive to God’s wisdom.
