Death and Satan

“Satan cannot part you from your portion. God has him in a chain, and like a dog without teeth, he may bark, yet he can never bite. At death, your portion will swim out with you in that shipwreck. Death parts all other portions from the sons of men, but give you your full portion. Then will you know your potion’s true worth. When fire burns up the world in will not even singe your portion. You may stand upon the ruins of the world and sing: I have lost nothing, I have my inheritance, my happiness [joy], and my God still.”


-George Swinnock, Works, IV:41-43 (Voices from the Past, Sept 25, p. 269; ed. Richard Rushing)
