that_o i_o will_v prove_v thus_o 1._o jesus_n christ_n our_o bless_a saviour_n with_o god_n the_o father_n god_n the_o holy_a ghost_n holy_a trinity_n in_o unity_n three_o person_n and_o one_o god_n

most_o express_a scripture_n thus_o 2._o first_o by_o the_o gospel_n it_o be_v most_o clear_a our_o saviour_n in_o saint_n john_n assure_v it_o with_o a_o very_o very_o i_o say_v unto_o you_o whatsoever_o you_o shall_v ask_v the_o father_n in_o my_o name_n he_o will_v give_v it_o you_o 24._o john_n 16.23_o 24._o and_o then_o in_o the_o next_o verse_n ask_v and_o you_o shall_v receive_v thus_o it_o be_v but_o ask_v of_o god_n and_o have_v and_o yet_o you_o must_v think_v fit_a to_o go_v about_o by_o the_o saint_n 3._o then_o in_o saint_n luke_n gospel_n we_o find_v and_o i_o say_v unto_o you_o ask_v and_o it_o shall_v be_v give_v you_o 13._o luke_n 11.9.10_o 11_o 12_o 13._o seek_v and_o you_o shall_v find_v knock_v and_o it_o shall_v be_v open_v unto_o you_o for_o every_o one_o

shall_v receive_v as_o saint_n matthews_n gospel_n tell_v 2._o matth._n 2._o with_o a_o infinity_n of_o other_o place_n too_o many_o to_o repeat_v to_o that_o purpose_n wherefore_o saint_n paul_n most_o pithy_o conclude_v 4.16_o heb._n 4.16_o let_v we_o therefore_o come_v bold_o unto_o the_o throne_n of_o grace_n that_o we_o may_v obtain_v mercy_n and_o find_v grace_n to_o help_v in_o time_n of_o need_n 4_o the_o apostle_n tell_v we_o 1.3_o 2_o cor._n 1.3_o that_o god_n be_v the_o father_n of_o mercy_n and_o the_o lord_n of_o all_o comfort_n who_o comfort_v we_o in_o all_o our_o tribulation_n that_o we_o may_v be_v able_a to_o comfort_v they_o which_o be_v in_o any_o trouble_n by_o the_o comfort_n wherewith_o we_o our_o selus_fw-la be_v comfort_v of_o god_n etc._n etc._n if_o all_o our_o comfort_n then_o be_v from_o god_n have_v we_o not_o better_o make_v our_o address_n to_o he_o that_o we_o know_v be_v the_o fountain_n of_o all_o grace_n than_o to_o the_o saint_n who_o can_v have_v nothing_o but_o what_o they_o derive_v from_o he_o 5._o the_o same_o apostle_n tell_v tymothy_n plain_o that_o there_o be_v but_o one_o mediator_n between_o god_n and_o man_n and_o that_o be_v christ_n jesus_n what_o a_o offence_n than_o must_v it_o need_v be_v to_o god_n to_o make_v more_o mediator_n that_o be_v the_o saint_n then_o we_o find_v frequent_o in_o scripture_n that_o he_o alone_o make_v intercesion_n for_o we_o as_o in_o isaiah_n that_o he_o make_v intercession_n for_o transgressor_n 7.25_o 1_o tim._n 2.5_o isai_n 53.12_o rom._n 8.26.24_o heb._n 7.25_o and_o saint_n paul_n tell_v we_o that_o he_o ever_o live_v to_o make_v intercession_n for_o we_o and_o again_o who_o always_o make_v intercession_n for_o we_o why_o shall_v we_o date_n to_o make_v more_o intercessor_n that_o be_v the_o saint_n 6._o in_o fine_a to_o sum_n up_o all_o in_o short_a your_o doctrine_n of_o invocation_n of_o the_o saint_n be_v high_o injurious_a to_o god_n who_o be_v a_o jealous_a god_n and_o will_v only_o be_v worship_v it_o be_v injurious_a to_o jesus_n christ_n who_o be_v the_o only_a mediator_n between_o god_n and_o man_n three_o it_o be_v injurious_a to_o ourselves_o for_o it_o be_v a_o argument_n of_o a_o diffidence_n and_o distrust_n in_o god_n when_o we_o fly_v to_o the_o saint_n for_o succour_n and_o then_o last_o it_o be_v a_o impertinent_a and_o unprofitable_a piece_n of_o devotion_n because_o the_o saint_n in_o heaven_n neither_o do_v nor_o can_v hear_v our_o prayet_n nor_o know_v our_o want_n or_o what_o be_v do_v here_o among_o we_o as_o job_n tell_v we_o 9.5_o job_n 24.21_o eccles_n 9.5_o his_o son_n come_v to_o honour_n and_o he_o know_v it_o not_o ecclesiastes_n assure_v we_o that_o the_o live_a know_v that_o they_o shall_v die_v but_o the_o dead_a know_v not_o any_o thing_n and_o the_o prophet_n isaiah_n yet_o more_o plain_o 63.16_o isai_n 63.16_o doubtlessthou_fw-mi be_v our_o father_n though_o abraham_n be_v ignorant_a of_o we_o and_o israel_n do_v not_o acknowledge_v we_o etc._n etc._n thus_o it_o be_v plain_a that_o the_o saintf_n in_o heaven_n be_v incapable_a to_o know_v our_o want_n or_o hear_v our_o prayer_n much_o less_o to_o help_v we_o that_o your_o doctrine_n of_o veneration_n of_o image_n be_v a_o abominable_a idolatrcus_n dactrine_n and_o prejudicial_a to_o divine_a worship_n i_o prove_v thus._n first_o out_o of_o the_o plain_a word_n of_o the_o commandment_n thou_o shall_v not_o make_v unto_o thou_o any_o grave_a image_n 2d_o exod._n 20.4_o 5._o deut._n 4.5_o &_o 2d_o or_o any_o likeness_n of_o any_o thing_n that_o be_v in_o heaven_n above_o or_o that_o be_v in_o the_o earth_n beneath_o or_o that_o be_v in_o the_o waterunder_n the_o earth_n thou_o shall_v notbow_n down_o thyself_o to_o they_o nor_o serve_v they_o etc._n etc._n the_o same_o thing_n be_v repeat_v at_o the_o latter_a end_n of_o ex●dus_fw-la and_o in_o several_a place_n of_o deuteronomy_n and_o in_o many_o other_o place_n of_o the_o old_a testament_n 2._o again_o we_o find_v how_o good_a hezekiah_n 18.4_o 2_o king_n 18.4_o remove_v the_o high_a place_n and_o break_v the_o image_n and_o break_v in_o piece_n the_o beazen_n serpent_n that_o moses_n have_v make_v etc._n etc._n yet_o your_o religion_n strive_v to_o restore_v to_o christian_n that_o kind_a of_o worship_n 3_o how_o well_o our_o saviour_n be_v please_v with_o that_o kind_n of_o worship_n 24._o joh._n 22_o 23_o 24._o you_o may_v see_v in_o saint_n john_n gospel_n where_o our_o saviour_n say_v you_o worship_n you_o know_v not_o what_o etc._n etc._n but_o the_o hour_n come_v and_o now_o be_v when_o the_o true_a worshipper_n shall_v worship_v the_o father_n in_o spirit_n and_o in_o truth_n for_o the_o father_n seek_v such_o to_o worship_v he_o god_n be_v a_o spirit_n and_o they_o that_o worship_v he_o must_v worship_v he_o in_o spirit_n and_o in_o truth_n now_o i_o will_v feign_v know_v what_o a_o spirit_n have_v to_o do_v with_o image_n or_o how_o can_v the_o worship_n of_o image_n be_v think_v a_o spiritual_a worship_n 4_o over_o and_o above_o the_o danger_n of_o idolatry_n and_o many_o unclean_a thought_n that_o may_v be_v occasion_v by_o image_n i_o shall_v only_o add_v this_o
