As if God had not enough to do (with me and you)

He’s in charge of rain, sleet, snow, mist and dew.

(Moisture comes in ways, anything-but-new)

He’s in charge of cloud “one” and cloud “two twenty-two

They are all His clouds under sky gray or cheery blue

How complete with me, you, and all else He has to do.

Daniel was in the greatest credit amongst the Jews, till the reign of the Roman Emperor Hadrian: and to reject his Prophecies, is to reject the Christian religion. For this religion is founded upon his Prophecy concerning the Messiah.

– Isaac Newton, OBSERVATIONS upon the PROPHECIES of DANIEL and the APOCALYPSE of St. JOHN (LONDON: Printed by J. DARBY and T. BROWNE, 1733), chap 3.

 

Soon after, upon Christmas-day, the people of Rome, who had hitherto elected their Bishop, and reckoned that they and their Senate inherited the rights of the antient Senate and people of Rome, voted Charles their Emperor, and subjected themselves to him in such manner as the old Roman Empire and their Senate were subjected to the old Roman Emperors. The Pope crowned him, and anointed him with holy oil, and worshipped him on his knees after the manner of adoring the old Roman Emperors; as the aforesaid Poet thus relates:

– Isaac Newton, OBSERVATIONS upon the PROPHECIES of DANIEL and the APOCALYPSE of St. JOHN (LONDON: Printed by J. DARBY and T. BROWNE, 1733), chap 7.

This Leopard reigning in his four heads, signifies the same thing with the He-Goat reigning in his four horns: and therefore the He-Goat reigned in his four horns till the rise of Daniel‘s fourth Beast, or Empire of the Latins:

– Isaac Newton, OBSERVATIONS upon the PROPHECIES of DANIEL and the APOCALYPSE of St. JOHN (LONDON: Printed by J. DARBY and T. BROWNE, 1733), chap 9.

 

The Prophecy of the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven relates to the second coming of Christ; that of the Prince of the host relates to his first coming: and this Prophecy of the Messiah, in explaining them, relates to both comings, and assigns the times thereof.

– Isaac Newton, OBSERVATIONS upon the PROPHECIES of DANIEL and the APOCALYPSE of St. JOHN (LONDON: Printed by J. DARBY and T. BROWNE, 1733), chap 10.

We avoid also the doing violence to the language of Daniel, by taking the seven weeks and sixty two weeks for one number. Had that been Daniel‘s meaning, he would have said sixty and nine weeks, and not seven weeks and sixty two weeks, a way of numbring used by no nation.

– Isaac Newton, OBSERVATIONS upon the PROPHECIES of DANIEL and the APOCALYPSE of St. JOHN (LONDON: Printed by J. DARBY and T. BROWNE, 1733), chap 10.

Isaac Newton died this date (3/31/1727-N.S.) Kensington, England.

I do not know the hour or moment,

When my Jesus shall return.

I do not know the week or day,

When this ole world will start to burn.

I simply know that He has promised,

Both events to take place;  I’m looking forward,

I’m looking upward, I’m waiting now to see His face.

 

For a few years and a few miles,

God’s footstool we are to roam.

It is only to prepare us for our eternal home.

The soul was made for heaven;

And up there it will be blessed.

Be praying, working; O, be not shirking,

Be looking forward to Scriptural rest.

 

So many people are attached to,

This ole globe with its toys.

Forgetting that their true possessions,

Are their girls and their boys.

Cars and houses, lands and money

Are but features of the time;  I’m laying treasure,

I’m building higher,  I’m looking forward to the sublime.

 

The closing of this present age,

Must be very near indeed.

Look around you, read your Bible;

Understand it and take heed.

The Prince of Peace will soon be coming

To Jerusalem to reign.  Prepare to be there.

Prepare with all care. Prepare don’t live your life in vain,

          – eab, 3/30 – 4/1  1972


[1] Written in part on I-77 south of Canton, Ohio.

Discipline is what moderns need the most and want the least.

– Richard Taylor, The Disciplined Life (Minneapolis: Bethany Fellowship Inc., 1962), 11.

 

Theodore Roosevelt said “The things that will destroy America are prosperity at any price, peace at any price, safety first instead of duty first, the love of soft living, and the get rich theory of life.”

– Richard Taylor, The Disciplined Life (Minneapolis: Bethany Fellowship Inc., 1962), 18.

 

Discipline must be seen as a servant, not a savoir…Discipline unquestionably makes a man superior.  If not watched, it will make him feel superior.

– Richard Taylor, The Disciplined Life (Minneapolis: Bethany Fellowship Inc., 1962), 40.

 

Faith can release in a moment powers for holiness that discipline cannot command in a millennium. 

– Richard Taylor, The Disciplined Life (Minneapolis: Bethany Fellowship Inc., 1962), 54.

 

The baptism of the Hoy Spirit gives neither a trained mind nor trained hands.  The holiest soul may be ignorant, awkward, and blundering…he may have no trade, skill, art, or profession.  But not for long.

– Richard Taylor, The Disciplined Life (Minneapolis: Bethany Fellowship Inc., 1962), 60.

 

Richard Shelley Taylor was born this date (3/30/1912) in Cornelius, Oregon.  He wrote several other books including A Right Conception of Sin.  It was my privilege to sit under his teaching in the Chamberlain Holiness Lecture Series at Wesley Biblical Seminary, Jackson, MS.  Got to meet him and he autographed five of his books for me.
