Lord thou hast spoken that of thy servants house, there shall sit a man for ever on his Throne. It was the exception made against Herod, Quod nec nascendo, nec vivendo Rex suit. He was neither a King by birth, nor by life. The Author of this advancement. I will, take thee, I will make thee, I have chosen thee. God is the fountain of all lawful authority: unto him the shields of the Earth belong, supremacy and soveraignty which are the beams of Majesty. Promotion comes neither from the East nor from the West, nor any point of the Compass.
Magistracy is the Image of God which fell from the Heaven to the Earth. Exemplum habet de coelo. Lo our Saviour sheweth Iohn so. It is written in the Law, I have said ye are Gods. He it was that made them so. We must not have gods of our own making; the holy Oyle wherewith they were anointed is his, with my holy Oyle. Solomon sate on the Throne of the Lord. Hence they are called the sonnes of the most high, hence they are all the sons of God. In his thigh is there names written. All this betokens their high descent. They that set up Abimeleck to be King over Israel took delight in him, and he in them: but how long did he last and their joy continue?
Berthe immediately set out to try to find them. Follow this arranger Be informed by email for any addition or update of the sheet music and MP3 of this artist. A soldier, however, enters and warns Jean that the Imperial troops, assisted by the three Anabaptists, have invaded the city and entered the palace. Library Links. Tell a friend or remind yourself about this product. Meyerbeer, Giacomo.
But if God setteth one over us, let us not question how he shall save us. Gedeon suspected himself, and Moses groaned under his burden, yet both of them prevailed. I will make thee as a Signet. Zerubbabel shall be unto God as his seale ring. It's a Symbolical expression: take it literally, and no great matter to be found in it.
Bernard saith, Annulus nihil valet ad hereditates quas expecto. It is not so much the Ring, as the thing sealed with the Ring: the purpose unto which it was destined is that which putteth the excellency on it. Materiam saperabit opus, and so we may consider it threefold. As a seal and testimony, and conveyance of authority, in the ruling of places unto great officers. Ioseph was thus admitted to advancement: Pharaoh took off his Ring, and put it on Iosephs hand. Alexander declared his Successor by delivery of a Ring.
So then, the impression or Signet of Supream Authority is fixed on Zerub. None shall lift up hand or foot against thee in the land of Egypt, saith Pharaoh to Ioseph ; all other governments must pass under this seal. As Ambrose speaketh of the King given to Ioseph. Let the metal be what it will, without this Sculpture it beareth no authority. Rings were for ornament.
The Ring and the Robe were brought forth for ornaments Luk. And such is the power of Magistracy; it is the ornament of the Creation, the lustre of all the great Workmanship of God. He made the Sun to rule the Day, the Moon and Starrs to rule the Night: But the splendency of these lights is the beauty of the Creature: Take them away, and what remains but horror and darkness? See how God describeth the beauty of his people. I deckt thee with Gold and Silver, and thou wast comely. It setteth forth the Glory of Gods name, that he governs by Kings and Princes, they are his anointed, as the great constellations of the Firmament.
Solomon reckons it amidst the foure happinesses. God will make Zerubbabel his signet; and this betokeneth care and custody. He will weare, keep, and hold him as a signet.
On his right hand: and this his usual way of wearing Signets. Set me as a signet at thy right hand. So then custodia dextrae, this is the first, and this containeth an ordinary preservation. There are crosses and mischances, which dayly happen to the life of man, unto which even Princes are subject; did not this good right hand of the Lord protect them in their going out and coming in? They are viri dextrae.
There are extraordinary cases and hazards, and they require more powerful preservation: and for them there must be a stronger place. Set me as a seal on thy arm.
Beside the preservation of his hand, he hath for his Anointed the deliverance of his arm, of his strong arme, of his outstretched Arme. God is not onely my house, but my rock, my fortress, my strong tower and refuge. Thirdly there is yet a closer and safer place, and it is his heart: The Spouse saith, set me as a seal on thy heart. And this betokeneth great care. No snatching him out of his hand. The ground of this advancement, for I have chosen thee. This election is like the great stone which supported the Throne of Nebuchadnezzar.
I will place his Throne on this Throne, saith God.
Its like building on a Rock. Ex Electione, non tantum ex permissione ; this is too weak and Sandy a foundation. In the Kingdom of Providence there is nothing of casualties and permissions, the Spirit of God which governeth the world is a Spirit of Counsel, and not of temerity. So then Zerubbabel raigneth by Gods election and purpose; it's not a matter of meer tolleration or bare permission. Exelectione tam cum rejectione aliorum. It was this election that transferred the Kingdom of Saul.
Speak not of him, for I have rejected him. Anoint him not; for the Lord hath refused him. Though all Israel set their faces towards Adonijah, to make him King; yet Solomon shall have the Crown. Ex electione cum dilectione. Election cometh from dilection. The delight which God taketh in the prosperity of his people, putteth him on to place a Lord over them. Should we expostulate with God as they did. This would be a clear evidence of it. Because the Lord loved Israel to establish them for ever, therefore he gave them such a King.
Ex electione cum deliberatione. It implies study and search and great consultation. The setting up of Magistracy over us is a work of consultation. God pitcheth on Zerubb. Can we finde out such a man? This work is one of the chiefest pieces of Gods providence in the World: not any one that comes next to hand can serve the turn: no God maketh searchings and inquiries, and then concludes, I have forund me out a man.
Electio personalis. He hath spoken and will make it good: he that saith it is the Lord of Hosts. This promise is not like a Papal grant, which disposeth of Kingdomes, but affordeth no help or assistance to those unto whom it giveth them. Let them fight for them, if they will have them: The Lord of Hosts will make them good. When Zerubb. It is a comfort to us to have a Zerubbabel to be a Prince, and Leader to this people of God.
This our Governour shall be as a Torch of fire amidst the heap of Chaff, and all their Superstition as stubble before him. Is it not a comfort to us that a son of Shealtiel is a Prince over us, one of the Royal Race, no stranger or servant, no Assyrian or Philistim; but an issue of Royal Progenitours, designed to his Throne by God himself from the birth, Womb, and conception? Lastly, so we pray and hope, and trust, he is a servant of his, whom he will use as a blessed instrument of his glory: he is a servant of his own, on whom his stamp is.
Clemen Alex. The contrary are not to be found in him. The stamp of an Idol; our Zerubbabel is free from this Character. No instrument of cruelty to be engraven on it. Our Zerubb. Kings must sing the song both of Mercy and judgement; but the sweetest song is that of mercy. Do justice and love mercy: he both doth it, and delighteth in it. No Embleme of Intemperance.
He hath learned that it is not for Kings to drink wine.
No wanton or Luxurious stamp. What Virgin hath he deflowred? Whose bed hath he defiled? Whose Virginity hath he assaulted? Survey the World, and see how many such Princes your thought can present you with. Surely their names may be written in a small compass. We may and should boast of Gods mercy: All Christendome cannot afford such another. A sermon preach'd on the coronation day of K. Charles I March 27, , in S. Mary's in Cambridge Brownrig, Ralph, UMDL Texts home.
