Reproclaiming the Everlasting Gospel
We met on the 13th via Zoom to read and discuss Fox's Journal. I read from Vol. II, pp 100-104. It was a precious time, but I forgot to start the recording. However, I do want to copy out the letter Fox wrote to encourage Friends to stand faithful. We spent a good share of our time considering what Fox had to say.
My Dear Friends--The seed is above all. In it walk; in which ye all have life. Be not amazed at the weather; for always the just suffered by the unjust, but the just had the dominion. And all along ye may see, by faith the mountains were subdued; and the rage of the wicked with his fiery darts, were quenched. Though the waves and storms be hign, yet your faith will keep you, so as to swim above them; for they are but for a time, and the truth is without time. Therefore, keep on the mountain of holiness, ye who are let to it by the light, where nothing shall hurt. Do not think that any thing will outlast the truth, which standeth sure, and is over that which is out of the truth. For the good will overcome the evil, the light darkness, the life death, virtue vice, and righteousness unrighteousness. The false prophet cannot overcome the true; but the true prophet, Christ, will overcome all the false. So be faithful, and live in that which doth not think the time long. G.F.
