Spurgeon’s Parable


Mr. Spurgeon once made a parable.

He said: “There was once a tyrant who summoned one of his subjects into his presence, and ordered him to make a chain.

The poor blacksmith—that was his occupation—had to go to work and forge the chain.

When it was done, he brought it into the presence of the tyrant, and was ordered to take it away, to go back and make it twice the length.

He brought it again to the tyrant, and again he was ordered to go and double it.

Back he came again when he had obeyed the order, and the tyrant looked at it, and then commanded the other servants to bind the man hand and foot with the chain he had made and cast him into prison.


“That is what the devil does with men,” Mr. Spurgeon said. “He makes them forge their own chain, and then binds them hand and foot with it, and casts them into outer darkness.”

My friends, that is just what drunkards, gamblers, blasphemers, liars, thiefs, adulterers, homosexuals, drug addicts, and what ALL sin does and that is just what every sinner is doing, forging their own chains of the devil.

But thank God, we can tell them of a deliverer, a chain breaker. The Son of God has power to break every one of their chains if they will only come to Him.

John 6:37 NKJV
All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out.


Come to Jesus and He will loose the chains of death by the devil from your life. Just like when He spoke to Lazurus when Jesus told him to come forth from death and the grave, Jesus said…loose him…and let him go ! Jesus will do the same for you too… If you will just ask Him and believe in faith… Thank you Jesus…My chains are gone and you set me free by your grace, mercy, and power…Amen.

Psalm 107:13-14 NKJV
Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble, And He saved them out of their distresses. [14] He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, And broke their chains in pieces.
