"It is a blessed thing to know and witness a meeting and waiting together in the name of Jesus; such as meet in this name, and know Jesus the peaceable Savior in the midst of them, know the heavenly adorning of a meek and quiet spirit, the Prince of peace, and his peaceable government, the Lamb upon the throne, the righteous bearing rule, the land rejoicing, and heavenly peace in their borders. It is the true waiters and meeters in this name that enjoy all the blessings promised. It is they that know their strength, faith and confidence in God renewed . . ."
