"The faithful Witness." Revelation 1:5

THIS is one of the titles of our adorable Saviour. His Father gave Him to be a witness, to testify unto us of His love, and His testimony is: "God so loved the world, that He gave His only-begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." To testify of His will in reference to sinners, and this is His witness: "This is the will of Him that sent me, that every one that seeth the Son, perceiveth His divinity, His authority, and office, and believeth on Him, may have everlasting life, and I will raise him up at the last day." To testify of His delight in making His people happy; and this is the record: "Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom." He bare witness that our God and Father will do for us, and give unto us, all that our circumstances require; and we know that His witness is true. Let us therefore believe it, simply on the ground of His divinity, knowledge, integrity, veracity, and the interest He takes in our happiness and His Father's glory. Jesus is the faithful Witness, and our glorious Friend.

Great Witness from above,
My tongue would bless Thy name:
Be Thee the joyful news
Of my salvation came;
The joyful news of sin forgiven,
Of hell subdued, and peace with heaven.
