A bishop was to be un-blamed,

Second, a wife was named.

“Vigilant” was number three

Of what this man was to be.

And – – – God’s grand list is STILL the same. (1Ti 3.2)

Peace, perfect peace, in this dark world of sin?
The blood of Jesus whispers peace within.

Peace, perfect peace, by thronging duties pressed?
To do the will of Jesus, this is rest.

Peace, perfect peace, with sorrows surging round?
On Jesus’ bosom naught but calm is found.

Peace, perfect peace, with loved ones far away?
In Jesus’ keeping we are safe, and they.

Peace, perfect peace, our future all unknown?
Jesus we know, and He is on the throne.

Peace, perfect peace, death shadowing us and ours?
Jesus has vanquished death and all its powers.

It is enough: earth’s struggles soon shall cease,
And Jesus call us to Heaven’s perfect peace.

Peace, perfect peace, ’mid suffering’s sharpest throes? [1]
The sympathy of Jesus breathes repose.

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.
