George Fox (1624-1691)

Epistle 235
1664

"Elshdy"

AND therefore all, and every one, from the Highest to the Lowest, let none take your Crown, but be Faithful, for the Lord's Ears are open to the Cries of his oppressed and afflicted Ones; he heareth the Groans and Cries, Day and Night, of them: And the Lord's Eye is open, and he sees all the Actions of Men, and Times and Seasons, are in His Hands, who is King of Kings, and Lord of Lords, the Strong and All-Sufficient, Omnipotent God, Elshdy, who destroyeth the Destroyer, and ruineth him that would destroy and ruine all; . . . in whom ye have Life and Peace; and he remaineth, and changeth not, . . . in him live. And so, in him, the second Adam you will not be weary, nor faint, nor think the time long, for your Sufferings: For all the weariness and Fainting is in Adam in the Fall. And so, your Church being in God, and your Worship in the Spirit, and Power and Truth . . and your Fellowship in the Gospel, in the Power of God, . . . keep your Fellowship in the Power of God, and look above all outward Sufferings and dwell in that which is above all, and will stand when all other is gone. And so, dwell in the Love of God, and in the Unity of the Spirit, one with another: And in that, the Lord God Almighty preserve you all; yea over all that which is contrary to his Power, to his Glory for ever. Amen.

G.F.

Note: "Elshdy" = El Shaddai.
