This is her monster sin. The Romish Church is essentially persecuting. In every land she has been eager for the blood of the faithful people of God, and it is her boast that she never changes. Her doom is sealed, and glory be to God for it. The sooner such a system, with all its belongings, is swept from off the face of the earth, the better.
Come, in thy glorious might,
Come with thine iron rod,
Scattering thy foes before thy face,
Most Mighty Son of God.
Come and make error flee,
And Popish idols fall;
Let Rome’s dominion cease to be,
And God be all in all.
