A56109 A testimony of truth given forth by a servant of the Lord, on the behalf of the despised servants, and professors of truth, who are made partakers of the heavenly power, which shakes the earth, and makes the inhabitants of the land to tremble, who are by the scorners of this generation called Quakers against the many lyes and slanders which the devil is the chief author of, arising forth of the bottomlesse pit, and vented forth by one James Livesey a professed minister of Christ in the county of Chester, but by his fruits is plainly manifested a minister of sin, and so of his Father who begat him, and sent him forth to oppose the living truth of God : but his folly is here manifested and declared to open view, that the simple and honest hearted may turn from him and all such deceitful workers, and may learn of Christ the light of the world, that their souls may live. Parker, Alexander, 1628-1689. 1659 (1659) Wing P386; ESTC R5756 31,699 39

can_v ever_o come_v to_o the_o true_a knowledge_n of_o sin_n much_o less_o to_o the_o knowledge_n of_o truth_n in_o its_o purity_n until_o they_o own_o the_o light_n which_o jesus_n christ_n the_o

thou_o until_o thou_o view_v thyself_o in_o this_o light_n therefore_o beware_v of_o hate_v and_o despise_v the_o light_n within_o which_o be_v of_o christ_n for_o whosoever_o hate_v that_o light_n which_o check_n and_o reprove_v for_o sin_n they_o hate_v christ_n and_o the_o light_n be_v the_o condemnation_n for_o as_o christ_n have_v say_v this_o be_v the_o condemnation_n of_o the_o world_n that_o light_n be_v come_v into_o the_o world_n and_o man_n love_v darkness_n rather_o than_o light_n because_o their_o deed_n be_v evil_a for_o every_o one_o that_o do_v truth_n he_o love_v the_o
