God Is The Committee
Before I left England, God made me declare on many plat-forms that we went trusting neither in man, nor in committee, except in that of the Committee of the Eternal Three. In His great love, God has allowed us to suffer desertion, detraction, defamation and the loss of many friends, so-called, but He has only bound us closer to Himself and held our heads straight for the next fence, so to speak. The greatest honour God has ever given me is that He had confidence in me, the most foolish and weak of His children, that I would not turn tail, lie down, whine or sulk, but just take His bit in my teeth and forge ahead. Do you wonder my soul jumps for joy? Jesus is with us, Hallelujah! There is glory in my soul at the thought of this glorious proof of His presence. At my reading today God said to me, "Speak unto the children of Israel that they go forward." When did He say this? When they were on the shores of the Red Sea, with Pharaoh and his hosts behind them, and they were like rats caught in a trap.
