â€śLet us not despair, albeit all the strength not only within us, but also appearing in others, vanish and forsake us. Remember, sister, that God never brought any excellent work to pass till first manâ€™s judgement was despaired thereof; and this His Majesty does, to notify His power to the sons of men. Abel cried not for vengeance upon Cain the murderer till first his blood was cruelly shed; Joseph obtained not dominion and power till first he suffered great trouble and imprisonment . . . ; Moses was not received in protection of Pharaohâ€™s daughter, till first he was exposed to the danger of the flood. And finally, Jesus Christ, our champion and head, did not obtain victory above all His enemies, so that after they might not trouble nor molest Him any more, till first He suffered the vile death of the cross." (John Knox)
May God remove the evil Liberalism which now poisons and destroys the Kirk and bring it to its knees in repentance. Amen.
