 GOD SEEN THROUGH THE EYES OF THE GREATEST MINDS (Click on title for more information).

“Death has to the Christian everything hoped for, contained in the idea of reunion. I cannot think.  I cannot think that death has to the Christian anything in it that should make it a rare, or other than a constant, thought; out of the view of death comes the view of the life beyond the grave, as out of the view of sin (that true and real view which the Holy spirit alone can give to man) comes the glorious hope; without the conviction of sin there is no ground of hope to the Christian.”             (Faraday II, 1870, 424)

“As though death be repugnant to the flesh, yet where the Spirit is given, to die is gain.” (Ibid., 424)

 “And though the thought of death brings the thought of judgment, which is far above all the trouble that arises from the breaking of mere earthly ties, it also brings to the Christian the thought of Him who died, was judged and who rose again for the justification of those who believe in Him.” (Ibid., 424)

“Though fear of death can be a great thought, the hope of eternal life is far greater. Much more is the phrase the apostle uses in such comparisons. Though sin has reigned unto death, much more is the hope of eternal life through Jesus Christ.”    (Ibid., 424-425)

“Though we may well fear for ourselves and our faith, much more may we trust in Him who is faithful; and though we have the treasures in earthen vessels, and so are surrounded by the infirmities of the flesh with all the accompanying hesitation – temptations and the attacks of the Adversary – yet it is that the excellency of the power of God may be with us.” (Ibid., 425)

“There is far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory for them who, through God’s power, look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For we are utterly insufficient for these things, but the sufficiency is of God, and that makes it fit for His people – His strength perfect in their weakness.”                                                            (Ibid., 425)

“The Christian . . .  is taught of God (by His Word and the Holy Spirit) to trust in the promise of salvation though the work of Jesus Christ. He finds his guide in the Word of God, and commits the keeping of his soul into the hands of God. He looks for no assurance beyond what the Word can give him, and if his mind is troubled by the cares and fears which may assail him, he can go nowhere but in his prayer to the throne of grace and to the Scripture.”                                       (Ibid., 426)

“The Christian religion is a revelation. The natural man cannot know it . . . that revelation is the Word of God.”           (Ibid., 427)

“I bow before Him who is Lord of all, and hope to be kept waiting patiently for His time and mode of releasing me according to His Divine Word, and the great and precious promises whereby His people are made partakers of the Divine nature. (Ibid., 471)

“I am content to bear the reproach; yet, even in earthly matters, I believe that the invisible things of Him from the creation of the worlds are clearly seen, being understood by the things which are made, even his eternal power and Godhead.” (Faraday I, 1870, 298-299)
