Not illustrated. 1884 edition. Excerpt: ... to perform. His counsel shall stand and he will do all his pleasure. Isa. XLVI, 10, Eph I, 11. The history of the Reformation forcibly teaches and proves G0d's particular providence, by which He is ever working for the good of HIS people, and counterworking the plots of the wicked, and we may well say that as many and various were the schemes and malevo-lent acts of men, so various were His provi-dential interferences, disappointing the dc-vices and snares of the crafty Romanists, confounding their plans and breaking, as it Were, their machinery in pieces, that they could not perform their enterprises against Luther and his blessed work. The glorious Reformation abounds with proofs, b_v which we may be convinced of God's especial inter-ference in behalf of his chosen servant, who, from the beginning of the Reformation until he breathed his last, was the object of the plots and evil designs of the pope and his allies. Had not the Loan, in a very special manner, supported and defended him, when, together with the popish host, the mighty emperor rose up against him, in their wrath they would have destroyed him, and with busy hands would have scattered and de-molished the precious harvest that had been reaped from the seed that was sowed by Lu-ther's sermons and books, As in the days of Mordecai and Esther, by the treacherous schemes of Haman, God's people were all to have been put to death in one day, even so, in the days of the Reformation. the die was cast, which was to determine Luther's fate. Being excommunicated by the so-called head of the church, he was declared an outlaw by the emperor. Thus, we see, Luther found himself in avery dangerous situation and this danger was, perhaps, never greater than more
