John G. Paton, Illustrating His Trust in a Sovereign God

Image result for John Paton Missionary Angels“I realized that I was immortal till my Master’s work with me was done. The assurance came to me, as if a voice out of heaven had spoken, that not a musket would be fired to wound us, not a club prevail to strike us, not a spear leave the hand in which it was held vibrating to be thrown, not an arrow leave the bow, or a killing stone the fingers, without the permission of Jesus Christ, whose is all power in heaven and on earth. He rules all nature and restrains even the savage of the South Seas.” (John G. Paton when his house was surrounded by cannibals)
