Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary [1]

—Or Recorder. We find this officer, in the court of David, in the person of Jehoshaphat. ( 2 Samuel 8:16) See also the margin in this verse. I pause over the title and office purposely to notice an infinitely higher in the same department, in the court and church of the spiritual David. I mean in the person, office, and work of God the Holy Ghost. He is the Remembrancer indeed, in the sweet and most blessed sense of the word, for so the Lord Jesus testified of him. "The Comforter," (said Jesus) "which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you," ( John 14:26)

It will be the reader's wisdom, when at any time he feels his soul refreshed with the remembrance of past mercies, in the reviving, upholding, quick ening, comforting, and strengthening manifestations of divine love in Jesus, to call this blessed office of the Holy Ghost into recollection, and to ascribe the whole of his joys and refreshments to this gracious source. And what a gratifying thought is it to the true believer in Christ, to consider that from the indwelling residence of the Spirit in the hearts of the Lord's people, there is not a blessing or mercy they enjoy in Jesus but the Holy Ghost gives the relish to the soul in the moment of enjoyment, and makes the after recollection of it again blessed to the soul by the exercise of this divine office. For as the person of God the Holy Ghost is infinite, he dwells in the whole body of Christ's mystical members, and carries on in the hearts of each and of all every office, to teach, to lead, to guide, into all truth, and to bring all things to their remembrance what soever Jesus hath told them. Blessed and almighty Spirit, I would say, fill my heart, my house, the church, and every member of Jesus with thyself, and glorify the Lord Christ in all sweet remembrances! Amen.
