Excerpt from Historical Discourse, Commemorative of the Presbyterian Church: Of Upper Ten-Mile, Pa;; Delivered March 29, 1859The Son of God, incarnate in our nature, having been exalted by the Father to be bead over all things to the church, sits upon the throne of universal empire, the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords, He holds in his hand all hearts, all kingdoms, all events. His providence, which is administered wholly for his church, and with a view to its ultimate triumph over all enemies, is universal, infallible and irresistible. At one time, he curbs the passions of men, producing a comparative calm in the nations; at another, he lays the bridle on their neck, permitting them to embroil and agitate the world. Sometimes his purposes are best subserved by mighty conquerors; at others, by wise lawgivers. When he needs the former, he inspires them and their armies with invincible courage; when he requires the latter, he breathes into their minds wisdom and sagacity. He gives and he takes away power, transferring it, by a sovereign decree, from one man to another, from one house to another, from one people to another. Thus does our God, sovereign in purpose, infinite in greatness, supreme in power, and incomprehensible in wisdom, govern all the tribes and kingdoms of earth.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
