Excerpt from The Kingdom of God: Expounded and Testified Out of Moses and the Prophets, and From the New Testament Scriptures
In giving his disciples to know the mys terice of the kingdom of heaven, Jesus said, Unto you that hear more shall be given. Let his faithfulness to this promise be tried. He that is of God heareth God's words, saith the same divine witness. The words of God have to be heard by the faithful in Christ Jesus, and the things which He shews to his servants to be believed and known by them, though his judgments have to be ac complished till his wonders shall be fulfilled by unconscious instruments that did choose their own delusions, and are left to them. An inspired apostle testifies, 'now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the cir cumcision for the more or Goo to confirm the promises made unto the fathers, ' Ste. These promises must all be fulfilled, what ever judgments yet intervene. The truth of God shall he established forever. The word of our God shall stand forever. All the writer asks of the reader is to hear that word. Let the faith, the prayer, the pur pose, and the practice of those who seek to know the truth from the word of truth, be those of the man after God's own heart, who thus spake by the Holy Ghost: Thy testimonies are wonderful therefore doth my soul keep them. The entrance of thy word giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.'
