Strana 61 - My soul is athirst for GOD, yea, even for the living GOD: when shall I come to appear before the presence of GOD...
Strana 80 - Therefore no profit from any thing else ; all preaching and hearing is vain, and all preachers and hearers stand chargeable with the vanity of their religious performances, who think of preaching or hearing profitably, any other way, or by any other power, than in and by the Holy Spirit of God dwelling and working in them. Thus again, " If the Spirit of him, who raised Jesus from the dead, dwell in you, he also shall quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit, which dwelleth in you.'* In vain therefore...
Strana 39 - Except a man hateth his father and mother, yea, and his own life, he cannot be My disciple, it is because our best tempers are yet carnal and full of the imperfections of our fallen nature. The doctrine is just and good ; not as if father and mother were to be hated ; but that love which an unregenerate person, or natural man...
Strana 47 - There is but one salvation for all mankind, and that is the life of God in the soul. God has but one design or intent towards all mankind, and that is to introduce or generate his own life, light, and spirit in them, that all may be as so many images, temples, and habitations of the Holy Trinity.
Strana 19 - Thou seest, hearest, and feelest nothing of God, because thou seekest for Him abroad with thy outward eyes, thou seekest for Him in books, in controversies, in the church, and outward exercises, but there thou wilt not find Him till thou hast first found Him in thy heart. Seek for Him in thy heart, and thou wilt never seek in vain, for there He dwells, there is the seat of His Light and holy Spirit.
Strana 36 - Heaven that he has any living sensibility of. He, indeed, can talk of a Scripture God, a Scripture Christ and Heaven, but these are only the ornamental furniture of his brain, whilst pride is the God of his heart. We are told that God resisteth the proud and giveth grace to the humble.
Strana 78 - no man knoweth the Father but the Son, and he to whom the Son revealeth him'; and seeing 'the revelation of the Son is in and by the Spirit'; therefore the testimony of the Spirit is that alone by which the true knowledge of God hath been, is, and can be only revealed; who as.
Strana 19 - Begin to search and dig in thine own Field for this Pearl of Eternity, that lies hidden in it ; it cannot cost Thee too much, nor canst thou buy it too dear, for it is All, and when thou hast found it, thou wilt know, that all which thou hast sold or given away for it, is as mere a Nothing, as a Bubble upon the Water.
Strana 34 - receiveth not the Things of the Spirit of God, 'they are Foolishness unto him. He cannot know them, ' because they are spiritually discerned '; that is, they can only be discerned by that Spirit, which he has not.
Strana 2 - ... of the one only good, whilst we have it in our power to know and enjoy it in as great a reality as we know and feel the power of this world over us; for heaven is as near to our souls, as this world is to our bodies, and we are created, we are redeemed, to have our conversation in it. God, the only good of all intelligent natures, is not...
