the entire man, in body and soul.

807. In all times, either men have spoken of the true God, or the true God
has spoken to men.

808. Jesus Christ has verified that He was the Messiah, never in verifying
His doctrine by Scripture and the prophecies, but always by His miracles.

He proves by a miracle that He remits sins.

Rejoice not in your miracles, said Jesus Christ, but because your names are
written in heaven.

If they believe not Moses, neither will they believe one risen from the

Nicodemus recognises by His miracles that His teaching is of God. Scimus
quia venisti a Deo magister; nemo enim potest haec signa facere quae tu
facis nisi Deus fuerit cum eo.178 He does not judge of the miracles by the
teaching, but of the teaching by the miracles.

The Jews had a doctrine of God as we have one of Jesus Christ, and confirmed
by miracles. They were forbidden to believe every worker of miracles; and
they were further commanded to have recourse to the chief priests and to
rely on them.

And thus, in regard to their prophets, they had all those reasons which we
have for refusing to believe the workers of miracles.

And yet they were very sinful in rejecting the prophets and Jesus Christ
because of their miracles; and they would not have been culpable, if they
had not seen the miracles. Nisi fecissem… peccatum non haberent.[179]
Therefore all belief rests upon miracles.

Prophecy is not called miracle; as Saint John speaks of the first miracle in
Cana and then of what Jesus Christ says to the woman of Samaria, when He
reveals to her all her hidden life. Then He heals the centurion’s son; and
Saint John calls this "the second miracle."

809. The combinations of miracles.

810. The second miracle can suppose the first, but the first cannot suppose
the second.

are wont to exert their strength in the fierceness of their wrath. Oh!
then, what will be the consequence! What will become of the poor worms
that shall suffer it! Whose hands can be strong? And whose heart can
endure? To what a dreadful, inexpressible, inconceivable depth of misery
must the poor creature be sunk who shall be the subject of this!
Consider this, you that are here present, that yet remain in an
unregenerate state. That God will execute the fierceness of his anger,
implies, that he will inflict wrath without any pity. When God beholds
the ineffable extremity of your case, and sees your torment to be so
vastly disproportioned to your strength, and sees how your poor soul is
crushed, and sinks down, as it were, into an infinite gloom; he will
have no compassion upon you, he will not forbear the executions of his
wrath, or in the least lighten his hand; there shall be no moderation or
mercy, nor will God then at all stay his rough wind; he will have no
regard to your welfare, nor be at all careful lest you should suffer too
much in any other sense, than only that you shall not suffer beyond what
strict justice requires. Nothing shall be withheld, because it is so
hard for you to bear. Ezek. 8:18. "Therefore will I also deal in fury:
mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity; and though they cry
in mine ears with a loud voice, yet I will not hear them." Now God
stands ready to pity you; this is a day of mercy; you may cry now with
some encouragement of obtaining mercy. But when once the day of mercy is
past, your most lamentable and dolorous cries and shrieks will be in
vain; you will be wholly lost and thrown away of God, as to any regard
to your welfare. God will have no other use to put you to, but to suffer
misery; you shall be continued in bein

Re: La sanidad privada

brandished over their heads, and it is nothing but the hand of arbitrary
mercy, and God’s mere will, that holds it back.

They are already under a sentence of condemnation to hell. They do not
only justly deserve to be cast down thither, but the sentence of the law
of God, that eternal and immutable rule of righteousness that God has
fixed between him and mankind, is gone out against them, and stands
against them; so that they are bound over already to hell. John 3:18.
"He that believeth not is condemned already." So that every unconverted
man properly belongs to hell; that is his place; from thence he is, John
8:23. "Ye are from beneath:" And thither he is bound; it is the place
that justice, and God’s word, and the sentence of his unchangeable law
assign to him.

They are now the objects of that very same anger and wrath of God, that
is expressed in the torments of hell. And the reason why they do not go
down to hell at each moment, is not because God, in whose power they
are, is not then very angry with them; as he is with many miserable
creatures now tormented in hell, who there feel and bear the fierceness
of his wrath. Yea, God is a great deal more angry with great numbers
that are now on earth: yea, doubtless, with many that are now in this
congregation, who it may be are at ease, than he is with many of those
who are now in the flames of hell. So that it is not because God is
unmindful of their wickedness, and does not resent it, that he does not
let loose his hand and cut them off. God is not altogether such an one
as themselves, though they may imagine him to be so. The wrath of God
burns against them, their damnation does not slumber; the pit is
prepared, the fire is made ready, the furnace is now hot, ready to
receive them; the flames do now rage and glow. The glittering sword is
whet, and held over them, and the pit hath opened its mouth under them.

time crying; and said she would not go again if Eunice asked her an
hundred times; and she retained her aversion to that fruit for a
considerable time, under the remembrance of her former sin.

She sometimes appears greatly affected, and delighted with texts of
Scripture that come to her mind. Particularly about the beginning of
November, that text came to her mind, Rev. 3:20, "Behold, I stand at the
door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will
come in, and sup with him, and he with me." She spoke of it to those of
the family with a great appearance of joy, a smiling countenance, and
elevation of voice; and afterwards she went into another room, where her
mother overheard her talking very earnestly to the children about it;
and particularly heard her say to them, three or four times over, with
an air of exceeding joy and admiration, Why, it is to sup with God. Some
time about the middle of winter, very late in the night, when all were
a-bed, her mother perceived that she was awake, and heard her, as though
she was weeping. She called to her, and asked her what was the matter.
She answered with a low voice, so that her mother could not hear what
she said; but thinking that it might be occasioned by some spiritual
affection, said no more to her: but perceived her to lie awake, and to
continue in the same frame, for a considerable time. The next morning
she asked her, whether she did not cry the last ni

quantities of dry stubble before devouring flames. We find it easy to
tread on and crush a worm that we see crawling on the earth; so it is
easy for us to cut or singe a slender thread that any thing hangs by:
thus easy is it for God, when he pleases, to cast his enemies down to
hell. What are we, that we should think to stand before him, at whose
rebuke the earth trembles, and before whom the rocks are thrown down?

They deserve to be cast into hell; so that divine justice never stands
in the way, it makes no objection against God’s using his power at any
moment to destroy them. Yea, on the contrary, justice calls aloud for an
infinite punishment of their sins. Divine justice says of the tree that
brings forth such grapes of Sodom, "Cut it down, why cumbereth it the
ground?" Luke 13:7. The sword of divine justice is every moment
brandished over their heads, and it is nothing but the hand of arbitrary
mercy, and God’s mere will, that holds it back.

They are already under a sentence of condemnation to hell. They do not
only justly deserve to be cast down thither, but the sentence of the law

man and of his slavery under that action.

It is not disgraceful for man to yield to pain, and it is disgraceful to
yield to pleasure. This is not because pain comes to us from without, and we
ourselves seek pleasure; for it is possible to seek pain, and yield to it
purposely, without this kind of baseness. Whence comes it, then, that reason
thinks it honourable to succumb under stress of pain, and disgraceful to
yield to the attack of pleasure? It is because pain does not tempt and
attract us. It is we ourselves who choose it voluntarily, and will it to
prevail over us. So that we are masters of the situation; and in this man
yields to himself. But in pleasure it is man who yields to pleasure. Now
only mastery and sovereignty bring glory, and only slavery brings shame.

161. Vanity.–How wonderful it is that a thing so evident as the vanity of
the world is so little known, that it is a strange and surprising thing to
say that it is foolish to seek greatness?

162. He who will know fully the vanity of man has only to consider the
causes and effects of love. The cause is a je ne sais quoi (Corneille), and
the effects are dreadful. This je ne sais quoi, so small an object that we
cannot recognise it, agitates a whole country, princes, armies, the entire

Cleopatra’s nose: had it been shorter, the whole aspect of the world would
have been altered.

163. Vanity.–The cause and the effects of love: Cleopatra.

164. He who does not see the vanity of the world is himself very vain.
Indeed who do not see it but youths who are absorbed in fame, diversion, and
the thought of the future? But take away diversion, and you will see them
dried up with weariness. They feel then their nothingness without knowing
it; for it is indeed to be unhappy to be in insufferable sadness as soon as
