Of TRUE REPENTANCE.
|| IV. Of the SUPERSENSUAL LIFE.
Written in the German Language, Anno. 1622;
Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of Heaven and Earth, because thou has hid these Things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto Babes.
Even so, Father for so it seemed good in thy Sight. Matt.xi.25,26.
Ye see then your Calling, Brethren, how that not many wise Men after the Flesh, not many mighty, not many noble are called.
But God hath chosen the foolish Things of the World to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak Things of the world to confound the Things which are Mighty.
And base Things of the World, and Things which are despised hath God chosen, yea, and Things which are not, to bring to nought Things that are.
That no Flesh should glory in his Presence. 1Cor.i.26,27,28,29.
If thou wilt use these Words aright, and art in good Earnest, thou shalt certainly find the Benefit thereof. But I desire thou mayest be warned, if thou art not in Earnest, not to meddle with the dear Names of God, in and by which the most High Holiness is invoked, moved, and powerfully desired, lest they kindle the Anger of God in thy Soul. For we must not abuse the Holy Names of God. This little Book is only for those that would fain repent, and are in a Desire to begin. Such will find what Manner of Words therein, and whence they are born. Be you herewith commended to the Eternal Goodness and Mercy of God.
