shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that,

if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.”

Pickett Quote

“Speculation about the future took the place of study

of the past and present and

of careful comparison of the facts of history with the predictions of prophecy.”

– L L Pickett, from his book The Antichrist

The battle of the Kingdoms

Is fought every day –

On some bleak mountain

Or odd island far away?

No, it’s fought in the grayish matter

Of your brain

The kingdom of evil

Fights to claim you.

The Kingdom of Christ

Fights to re-claim you.

Your will, your heart,

Your brain’s the battle field,

You, Friend, decide the battle

As you hold or as you yield.

Joseph Hart died 5/24/1768 at London, England.  Neither an exact date of birth, nor parental names seem readily available but his autobiography states he “…had the happiness of being born of believing parents…”  He received a good education including a mastery of Latin, Hebrew, & Greek & later (on the word of his brother-n-law, John Hughes) made part of his living teaching languages. 

Sadly while still young, left his Christian roots actually penning a pamphlet The Unreasonableness of Religion, Being Remarks and Animadversions on the Rev. John Wesley’s Sermon on Romans 8:32.  (After his conversion to Christ he publicly acknowledged his error).  Sometime during his rebellious/struggling years he met & married Mary (?) who is said to have been 14 years younger than he was – date is missing.

The week before the commemoration of our Lord’s Resurrection (April 10th in 1757) Hart received “…an amazing view of the agony of Christ in the garden of Gethsemane…” & on Whitsunday (what the Brits call “Pentecost Sunday” – i.e. TODAY) Hart was converted to Christ under the preaching of George Whitfield.  He eventually became the Minister of the Independent Chapel on Jewin Street in London.  He left behind 30 some hymns in addion to his other publicaions.  Tens of thousands reportedly attended his funeral.


His motto “Pharasaic zeel & Antinomian security are the two engines of satan, with which he grinds the church in all ages…

The space between them is much narrower & harder to find than most men imagine.

It is a path which the vulture’s eye hath not seen; & none can show it us but the Holy Ghost.”

there should no flesh be saved: but

If your soul/mind life pleases

The Only, Holy Jesus

He’ll let you live with Him on earth

(It’s called the “New Birth” 🙂 )

And let you live with Him on high

After earth bids you “Good Bye.”

Seth Cook Rees died 5/22/1933, Pasadena, CA.  Seth was born 10th child of Zechariah Rees (1st child of wife, Luzena Rees) at Westfield, IN, 8/6/1854. The Rees family had roots first in Wales (there spelled “Rhys”) & secondly in North Carolina.  Zachariah moved to Westfield, a Society of Friends village & station of the “Underground Railroad,” as a result of his views on slavery. Seth was raised around a Quaker, farmer, family altar, was educated in Westfield, & there at 19, was converted to Christ – his words include:

 “…a strange power came over me & I arose & confessed that I was an awful sinner. I was not on my feet 30 seconds but I sat down a saint!…The complexion of everything changed. Every blade of grass, every drop of water and every bird of forest and field, seemed to dance with delight.” Then in August 1874 he preached his 1st message at the Quaker Quarterly Meeting in Westfield, IN & started holding revivals. He met Hulda Johnson via correspondence, & they were married in December of ’76. They were blessed with at least one son, Paul S Rees. (Yours truly I heard Paul speak at Bible Town, Boca Raton, FL, 67-68.)

Rees went on to have an influence in America & abroad.  He & Hulda were baptized in water (Quakers believe in being baptized with the Holy Ghost & fire) & served for a while with the Nazarenes, working with both P F Bresee & H O Wiley.  He later worked with M W Knapp & helped organize (uniting two groups) the Pilgrim Holiness Church in the Adm. building at God’s Bible School. (Again a personal note: my pastor when I was converted was J D Webb, Sr. – he was ordained under Seth C Rees.)
