Reproclaiming the Everlasting Gospel

I wrote in the margin of my Good News Bible, "I can see G.F. reading this first verse and understanding it in a way different from what he had heard of it in the church." The verse I refer to is Hebrews 9.

The entire chapter was, in fact, opened to me this morning as it had never before been. And my first thought was, this is the chapter that the Spirit opened to George Fox concerning churches and what they are and what they are not. And because I was quickened reading the words, I knew it was true of George Fox, too.

Yes, the Spirit hard in him, pressing him to go on and on in reading this scripture, each sentence like a morsel of bread filling him seemingly beyond capacity but not.

I had to talk to my brother. I lost the Spirit that was driving me. But, even in a lower state, I can say Chapter Nine in Hebrews is the perfect summary of the story. Oh, yes, the story, because the Bible as a whole is a book, a living book, because it tells the story we are living out and those before us have lived out their chapters, ever moving toward its ending. This is what else the Spirit opened to me. I was so filled with glory I skipped silent worship and fell to my knees to thank the Lord for His blessings this morning. 

So I wanted to say Hebrews 9 is the perfect book to read to Meeting attenders on Easter Sunday.
