Today, I finished reading Chapter 16 about the Pilgrim Fathers, and I think it is ironic that those early settlers, who landed at Plymouth Rock, ended up practicing the religious oppression that they fled Europe from.

The establishment of Rhode Island by Roger Williams, as a bastion of tolerance and democracy, was an implicit rebuke to the Pilgrims, because it was Native Americans who came to Mr. Williams' aid after he wandered through the woods in the bitter cold of winter for 14 weeks. It was a strange people who had no formal introduction to Christianity, but who displayed more Christianity in their hospitality to Mr. Williams, than his fellow Pilgrims did by banishing him for denouncing their hypocrisy.

During Roger Williams' extremity, seemingly at the mercies of elements, God truly sustained him, just as He did Elijah during his time in the wilderness. I sincerely believe that God will also sustain His people in the last days during the time of tribulation, which the Bible speaks of in Matthew 24.

May we be faithful, and trust God's heart when we cannot see His hand.
