Page 320 - Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, And my servant whom I have chosen: That ye may know and believe me, And understand that I am he: Before me there was no God formed, Neither shall there be after me. I, even I, am the Lord; And beside me there is no saviour.
Page 249 - Wherefore, we acknowledge a dutiful necessity of doing well, but the meritorious dignity of doing well we utterly renounce. We see how far we are from the perfect righteousness of the law ; the little fruit which we have in holiness, it is, God knoweth, corrupt and unsound : we put no confidence at all in it, we challenge nothing in the world for it, we dare not call God to reckoning, as if we had him in our debt-books : our continual suit to him is, and must be, to bear with our infirmities, and...

Page 267 - Behold, I stand at the door, and knock : if any man will hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and sup with him, and he with Me.
Page 367 - James's reign, the fear of popery was so strong, as well as just, that many, in and about London, began to meet often together, both for devotion and for their fur318ther instruction: things of that kind had been formerly practised only among the puritans and the dissenters: but these were of the church, and came to their ministers, to be assisted with forms of prayer and other directions: they were chiefly conducted by Dr.
