Hugh Stowell says, "The redemption of the Jews is the hinge on which revolve the destinies of the human race." Wow, that's a massive statement, and Marks quotes this as part of why he wants to share his own story with us.
The language is archaic, and proper and formal. And yet it speaks to us today, if we have ears to hear. The entire testimony is free as a Google Book, and if you are in the US you can add Google Books for free to your iPad. We cannot do so here in Australia, but the web site Marks book here allows us to read it on our computer.
165 pages. Originally published by Thomas Printer, Eastgate Street, Chester. (UK) Written in December 1837.
OK, it's old, but let's not forget, we didn't start this messianic movement, and we probably won't be the last in it. We stand on the shoulders of many, thousands of others, who went on before us, and who made the way easier for us. Who prayed for us, even as we pray for those who will take up the mantle long after us.
Or are you praying for your replacements? I am! God, give them a heart of compassion for the Jewish people. God, give them grace and strength to share relentlessly and passionately the truths of the Truth. And make them pray-ers, who will pray for those who follow them in this work, as well.
