The Journal of George Fox
1655-1656
“Further Ministry and Lancaster Jail”

“While I was in prison here, the Baptists and fifth-monarchy-men prophesied, that this year Christ should come, and reign upon earth a thousand years. And they looked upon this reign to be outward; when he had come inwardly in the hearts of his people to reign and rule; these believers would not receive him in their hearts. So they failed in their prophecy and expectation, and did not have the possession of him. But Christ has come, and does dwell and reign in the hearts of his people. Thousands, at the door of whose hearts he has been knocking, have opened to him; and he has come in, and does sup with them, and they with him; the heavenly supper with the heavenly and spiritual man. So many of these Baptists and monarchy-people became the greatest enemies to the followers of Christ, but he reigns in the hearts of his saints over all their envy.”

–George Fox

In the Old Testament, Zion was a hill just outside the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem in Israel.

In the New Testament, Zion is the Presence of God.  The Lord rules in Zion, the Lord rules in the Presence of God.  If His people are purified, the Lord rules in His people through the Presence of God.  Glory to God in the Highest!

Psalm 110: 2:  “The LORD shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.”

Micah 4: 7:  “And I will make her that halted a remnant, and her that was cast far off a strong nation: and the LORD shall reign over them in mount Zion from henceforth, even for ever.”

Hebrews 12: 22:  “But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels.”

Zion is My Home
Upon Mount Zion Shall Be Deliverance
Jacob will remain Jacob until he is Broken
Wearing a Rough Garment
The Babylonish Church
The Fire of the Lord
