much_o every_o day_n and_o therefore_o not_o only_a while_n as_o yet_o we_o live_v we_o must_v seek_v he_o but_o we_o must_v not_o neglect_v any_o time_n yea_o we_o must_v with_o expedition_n accept_v any_o occasion_n of_o seek_v christ_n for_o we_o know_v not_o if_o ever_o he_o will_v knock_v at_o our_o door_n again_o the_o second_o error_n man_n commit_v in_o seek_v of_o christ_n be_v in_o the_o manner_n it_o be_v long_o ere_o we_o begin_v to_o seek_v he_o who_o we_o shall_v seek_v before_o all_o thing_n but_o when_o we_o do_v begin_v to_o seek_v it_o be_v after_o a_o negligent_a and_o careless_a manner_n as_o if_o the_o matter_n be_v not_o great_a whether_o find_v he_o or_o no._n 6.33_o matth._n 6.33_o but_o what_o say_v our_o saviour_n christ_n seek_v first_o the_o kingdom_n of_o god_n and_o by_o first_o be_v mean_v not_o a_o priority_n in_o order_n and_o the_o anticipation_n of_o time_n but_o a_o priority_n in_o the_o earnestness_n or_o intention_n of_o our_o mind_n as_o if_o he_o shall_v have_v say_v seek_v the_o kingdom_n of_o heaven_n not_o only_o before_o all_o thing_n but_o above_o all_o thing_n with_o great_a vehemency_n and_o affection_n than_o you_o do_v any_o other_o thing_n in_o the_o world_n beside_o this_o be_v the_o meaning_n of_o our_o saviour_n and_o so_o much_o do_v the_o word_n of_o our_o saviour_n import_v he_o that_o will_v find_v christ_n must_v seek_v he_o zealous_o with_o fervour_n and_o heat_n 11.12_o mat._n 11.12_o for_o the_o kingdom_n of_o heaven_n suffer_v violence_n &_o the_o violent_a take_v it_o by_o force_n and_o after_o we_o have_v find_v he_o than_o we_o must_v seek_v how_o to_o keep_v he_o too_o to_o which_o purpose_n tertullian_n have_v a_o notable_a admonition_n and_o very_o fit_a for_o our_o time_n in_o which_o many_o be_v like_a unto_o child_n 4.14_o ephes_n 4.14_o carry_v about_o with_o every_o blast_n of_o doctrine_n or_o like_o those_o woman_n who_o be_v ever_o learning_n 3.7_o 2._o tim._n 3.7_o and_o yet_o never_o come_v to_o the_o knowledge_n of_o the_o truth_n ever_o seek_v and_o never_o find_v because_o when_o they_o have_v find_v they_o lose_v that_o they_o have_v find_v either_o of_o too_o

find_v knock_v &_o it_o shall_v be_v open_v unto_o you_o ask_v and_o it_o shall_v be_v give_v the_o true_a understanding_n of_o which_o place_n say_v he_o consist_v in_o three_o point_n for_o our_o saviour_n speak_v this_o jnipsis_fw-la doctrinae_fw-la primitijs_fw-la when_o first_o he_o begin_v to_o teach_v when_o he_o be_v yet_o scarce_o know_v to_o his_o disciple_n while_o as_o yet_o peter_n have_v not_o acknowledge_v he_o to_o be_v the_o son_n of_o god_n and_o so_o most_o peculiar_o say_v he_o do_v the_o speech_n belong_v to_o the_o jew_n who_o do_v not_o acknowledge_v christ_n to_o be_v the_o messiah_n and_o therefore_o be_v will_v to_o seek_v he_o add_v further_a admit_v it_o be_v speak_v to_o we_o as_o in_o truth_n it_o be_v yet_o say_v he_o it_o have_v his_o bound_n and_o the_o true_a understanding_n of_o these_o word_n consist_v in_o three_o point_n in_o re_fw-mi in_fw-la tempore_fw-la in_fw-la modo_fw-la in_o the_o thing_n in_o the_o time_n in_o the_o manner_n the_o division_n be_v not_o much_o unlike_o that_o of_o bernard_n that_o be_v say_v he_o we_o must_v understand_v what_o it_o be_v we_o seek_v how_o we_o seek_v and_o when_o we_o be_v to_o seek_v it_o that_o which_o we_o ought_v to_o seek_v be_v christ_n and_o we_o ought_v to_o seek_v he_o till_o we_o find_v he_o et_fw-la invenisti_fw-la cùm_fw-la credidisti_fw-la and_o then_o thou_o have_v find_v he_o when_o thou_o have_v believe_v in_o he_o and_o then_o seek_v how_o thou_o may_v keep_v he_o for_o no_o man_n say_v he_o seek_v but_o he_o which_o either_o never_o have_v christ_n or_o else_o have_v lose_v he_o 11.5_o luke_n 11.5_o the_o man_n in_o the_o gospel_n who_o repair_v to_o his_o friend_n house_n knock_v at_o his_o door_n desire_v he_o to_o lend_v he_o three_o loaf_n be_v very_o importunate_a to_o be_v let_v in_o but_o as_o soon_o as_o he_o be_v let_v in_o he_o cease_v to_o knock_v any_o more_o the_o widow_n that_o lose_v her_o groat_n 15.8_o luke_n 15.8_o sweep_v the_o

the_o wicked_a judge_n but_o after_o she_o be_v admit_v to_o audience_n she_o give_v over_o her_o importunity_n and_o therefore_o there_o be_v a_o measure_n in_o seek_v and_o knock_v therefore_o after_o we_o have_v by_o faith_n work_v by_o charity_n apprehend_v christ_n we_o must_v not_o seek_v after_o any_o other_o faith_n no_o nor_o if_o we_o will_v follow_v the_o policy_n of_o some_o state_n not_o suffer_v disputation_n in_o the_o question_n of_o faith_n and_o religion_n for_o though_o dispute_v of_o truth_n be_v a_o kind_n of_o teach_v of_o truth_n and_o that_o truth_n fear_v no_o examination_n or_o discussion_n yet_o as_o often_o as_o factious_a or_o schismatical_a spirit_n shall_v offer_v disputation_n in_o the_o matter_n of_o faith_n or_o governemrnt_v to_o accept_v of_o that_o challenge_n be_v to_o bring_v those_o thing_n that_o be_v sound_o and_o sure_o settle_v to_o new_a trial_n and_o to_o seek_v after_o that_o which_o be_v already_o find_v which_o neither_o the_o rule_n of_o policy_n nor_o divinity_n do_v admit_v i_o speak_v this_o to_o stop_v the_o mouth_n of_o some_o who_o with_o more_o insolency_n than_o confidency_n desire_n that_o thing_n in_o controversy_n may_v be_v dispute_v of_o which_o according_a to_o the_o sense_n in_o which_o they_o desire_v it_o be_v to_o seek_v for_o that_o which_o indeed_o we_o have_v find_v and_o which_o without_o curiosity_n or_o distrust_v we_o ought_v to_o maintain_v even_o with_o the_o peril_n of_o our_o life_n as_o we_o have_v learn_v christ_n so_o let_v we_o go_v on_o root_v and_o ground_v in_o charity_n and_o not_o be_v move_v from_o the_o profession_n of_o our_o most_o holy_a faith_n neither_o let_v we_o give_v ear_n to_o those_o who_o under_o pretence_n either_o of_o truth_n in_o religion_n or_o sincerity_n in_o ceremony_n will_v alienate_v your_o mind_n from_o that_o obedience_n and_o government_n in_o which_o you_o have_v be_v train_v up_o in_o christ_n jesus_n we_o presume_v that_o we_o have_v find_v christ_n so_o far_o forth_o now_o our_o endeavour_n be_v and_o must_v be_v to_o keep_v he_o not_o only_o in_o our_o head_n by_o speculation_n that_o in_o our_o heart_n by_o affection_n to_o which_o purpose_n i_o shall_v speak_v more_o in_o convenient_a place_n the_o three_o error_n man_n commit_v in_o seek_v after_o christ_n be_v that_o they_o seek_v he_o not_o in_o the_o place_n they_o shall_v seek_v he_o this_o be_v the_o error_n commit_v by_o these_o holy_a woman_n for_o which_o the_o angel_n blame_v they_o and_o therefore_o a_o little_a long_o to_o be_v insist_v upon_o and_o this_o error_n may_v be_v collect_v easy_o and_o plain_o from_o the_o speech_n of_o our_o saviour_n in_o the_o gospel_n who_o tell_v we_o that_o false_a christ_n 26._o matt._n 24.24_o 26._o and_o false_a prophet_n shall_v arise_v and_o shall_v show_v great_a sign_n and_o wonder_n say_v behold_v he_o be_v in_o the_o wilderness_n he_o be_v in_o the_o secret_a place_n on_o which_o place_n doctor_n stapleton_n writing_n according_a to_o his_o virulent_a manner_n say_v it_o be_v accomplish_v in_o our_o teacher_n who_o leave_v the_o right_a way_n the_o king_n
