We’re in a war – not referring to carnal rockets or ships. Paul wrote, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood…” (Eph 6.12a). It’s not my job, as a Believer in Christ, to detract from or defend earthly “kingdoms” – it IS my responsibility to stand firmly with the Captain of my Salvation, Jesus Christ. His inspired Word is under attack. And His world creative actions are under attack. These two are more closely aliened than realized.

Jesus, Precious Jesus.

He was Rich, more rich than the locals could possible grasp – She was the very epitome of poverty.

He was Mature – She had a certain childishness.

He was majestically handsome – She had a country comeliness.

He was Accomplished without being worldly – She had a wonderful sense of innocency.

Their’s was a marriage made in heaven, worked out on earth and to be celebrated forever, literally!

He is the Heavenly Bridegroom, Christ, the founder of Christianity – She is the purified, perfected, poor (yet rich in Him) bride of Christ!

“Much is spoken of the rightful Heir of the Crown of England, and the unjustice of casting out the right Heir: but Christ is the only right Heir of the Crown of England, and of all other Nations also.” He proposed to the English nation, “That you would now set the Crown of England upon the head of Christ, whose only true inheritance it is,” and set their “civil polity” on the model given by God to Moses in the wilderness (in Exodus 18), so that “then shall the will of God be done on earth, as it is done in heaven.”


Quotes above are from Eliot’s preface to The Christian Commonwealth: or,The Civil Policy Of The Rising Kingdom of Jesus Christ


John Eliot was born 8/4/1604 at Widford, England.  He sailed to America in 1631, to pastor a group of Puritans.  Using linguistic training he received at Cambridge, Eliot learned the Indian language.  In a decade he was preaching in the Indian tongue and working on a Bible translation for them.  His “Indian” Bible was first Bible printed in North America (1661-1663).  Eliot also trained twenty four Indians as preachers – he is properly known as “the Apostle to the Indians.”
