The Chariot in Which God Rides

15 Sep

“The universe is the chariot in which God rides, and makes progress towards the last end of all things on the wheels of his providence; and the place of his chariot in which God has his seat, is the highest heavens. The pavement of the chariot, above which God’s throne is, is the firmament or the sky. …God [thus] governs the whole world for the good of his church; the wheels of the chariot of the universe move for them; and the progress that God makes therein in his throne above the firmament, the pavement of this chariot, is for them; and every event in the universe is in subserviency to their help and benefit.”

Jonathan Edwards
