Sivu 822 - In the beginning the great God made heaven and earth, land and sea, men and things, in six days ; and having finished his works on the seventh day, he called it the day of rest (or Sabbath): therefore all the men of the world, who enjoy the blessing of the great God, should on every seventh day especially reverence and worship the great God, and praise him for his goodness.
Sivu 820 - We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed ; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed...
Sivu 560 - Why do Christians bring us opium, and bring it directly in defiance of our own laws? That vile drug has poisoned my son — has ruined my brother — and well nigh led me to beggar my wife and children. Surely, those who import such a deleterious substance, and injure me, for the sake of gain, cannot wish me well or be in possession of a religion that is better than my own. Go first and persuade your own countrymen to relinquish this nefarious traffic, and give me a prescription to correct this vile...
Sivu 469 - ... soldiers are scattered abroad in every direction, I am truly afraid that the missionaries might be injured by following the rabble soldiery, and that thus serious consequence might ensue. Still I truly perceive that these (missionaries) are sincere and faithful men, and that they count it nothing to suffer with Christ; and because of this I esteem them very highly. "Let the kings inform all the officers and others, that they must all act lovingly and harmoniously towards these men, and by no...
Sivu 820 - For Freedom's battle once begun, Bequeathed by bleeding Sire to Son, Though baffled oft is ever won.
Sivu 828 - ... him odes and documents, And communicated to him the true doctrine. God also gave him a seal, And conferred upon him a sword, Connected with authority, And majesty irresistible. He bade him, together with the Elder Brother, Namely Jesus, To drive away impish fiends, With the co-operation of angels. There was one who looked on with envy, Namely the King of Hades ; Who displayed much malignity, And acted like a devilish serpent. But the great God, With a high hand, Instructed His son To subdue this...
Sivu 828 - He damped all his courage. Having overcome the fiend He returned to Heaven, Where the Great God Gave him great authority. The celestial mother was kind And exceedingly gracious, Beautiful and noble in the extreme Far beyond all compare. The celestial elder brother's wife Was virtuous and very considerate, Constantly exhorting the elder brother To do things deliberately.
Sivu 828 - ... world ; And when He sent him down, He charged him not to be afraid. I am with you, said He, To superintend everything. In the Mow-shin year (1848) The son was troubled and distressed, When the great God Appeared on his behalf. Bringing Jesus with Him, They both came down into the world ; Where He instructed His son How to sustain the weight of government. God has set up His son To endure for ever, To defeat corrupt machinations. And to display majesty and authority, Also to judge the world, To...
Sivu 828 - There was one who looked on with envy, Namely the King of Hades ; Who displayed much malignity, And acted like a devilish serpent. But the great God, With a high hand, Instructed His son To subdue this fiend ; And having conquered him, To show him no favour. And in spite of his envious eye, He damped all his courage. Having overcome the fiend, He returned to heaven, Where the great God Gave him great authority. The celestial mother was kind And exceedingly gracious, Beautiful and noble in the extreme,...
Sivu 472 - While walking along the streets, the number of females that are seen on the way is rather a novelty. They are in general well dressed, and of very respectable appearance. Many are riding on horseback, others are walking, and most of them have large feet. Not a few stop to hear our preaching, and always conduct themselves with perfect propriety. This is new, as compared with the former course of things, and the whole reminds one partly of home life. It will be a blessing if the revolution should tend...
