Pagina 72 - And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
Pagina 234 - In midst of dangers, fears, and death, Thy goodness I'll adore, And praise thee for thy mercies past, And humbly hope for more. My life, if thou preserv'st my life, Thy sacrifice shall be ; And death, if death must be my doom, Shall join my soul to thee.
Pagina 16 - If it be possible, let this cup pass from me; yet not my will, but thine be done?' I told him, at that time the sins of all mankind were upon him, and their iniquities and transgressions, with which he was wounded ; which he was to bear and to be an offering for, as he was man, but died not as he was God ; so, in that he died for all men, tasting death for every man, he was an offering for the sins of the whole world.
Pagina 204 - When a man's ways please the Lord, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.
Pagina 19 - And when all my hopes in them and in all men were gone, so that I had nothing outwardly to help me, nor could tell what to do, then, Oh then, I heard a voice which said, There is one even Christ Jesus, that can speak to thy condition', and when I heard it my heart did leap for joy.

Pagina 25 - These things I did not see by the help of man, nor by the letter, though they are written in the letter ; but I saw them in the light of the Lord Jesus Christ, and by his immediate Spirit and power, as did the holy men of God, by whom the Scriptures were written.
Pagina 38 - DEAR FRIEND, — Having such a convenient messenger, I could do no less than give thee an account of my present condition, remembering, that to the first awakening of me to a sense of life, and of the inward principle, God was pleased to make use of thee as an instrument. So that sometimes I am taken with admiration that it should come by such a means as it did; that is to say, that providence should order thee to be my prisoner, to give me my first real sight of the truth. It makes me many times...
Pagina 324 - Graceful he was in countenance, manly in personage, grave in gesture, courteous in conversation, weighty in communication, instructive in discourse, free from affectation in speech or carriage, a severe reprover of hard and obstinate sinners; a mild and gentle admonisher of such as were tender and sensible of their failings; not apt to resent personal wrongs, easy to forgive injuries ; but zealously earnest, where the honour of God, the prosperity of truth, the peace of the Church were concerned....
