Preface - The Israelites for their sin are oppressed by Midian. They cry to God; a prophet is sent to reprove them. An angel sendeth Gideon
to deliver them. Gideon asketh a sign; he bringeth flesh, broth, and bread, to the angel, which are all miraculously consumed with fire.
Gideon destroyeth Baal's altar and grove, and sacrifieth upon an altar which he built unto the Lord. The men of his city require him to be put
to death; his farther defendeth him, and giveth him the name of Jerubbaal. Gideon gathereth an army to fight the Midianites. The double sign
granted according to his prayer.
Preface - Cornelius, a devout centurion, being commanded by an angel, sendeth for Peter; who in the meantime is prepared by an
heavenly vision: and, receiving a command from the Spirit, goeth with the messengers to Caesarea. Cornelius receiveth him with great respect,
and sheweth the occasion of his sending for him. Peter preacheth Christ to him and his company: the Holy Ghost falleth on them,
whereupon they are baptized.

Q25 - How does Christ execute the office of a king?
A - Christ executes the office of a king in subduing us to himself, in ruling and defending us, and in restraining and conquering all his and our enemies.

For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich. 2 Corinthians 8 v 9
Corinth was one of the most wicked cities that ever was on the face of the world. It lay between two seas; so that luxury came flowing in from the east and from the west. These Corinthians had been saved from the deepest abominations, as you learn from 1 Corinthians 6 v 11: 'Such were some of you;' and yet it was for the sake of such that the Lord of glory became poor - 'For your sakes'. In like manner, Paul writing to the Romans, says: 'When we were without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly' (5-6). Ah! See what names are here given to those for whom Christ died: without strength - unable to believe, or to think a right thought; ungodly - living as if there were no God; sinners - breaking God's holy law; enemies - hating and opposing a holy God of love.
Oh, brethren! this is good news for the most wicked of men. Are there some of you who feel that you are like a beast before God, or all over sin, like a devil? Some of you have lived in the abominations of Corinth. Some of you are like the Romans - without strength, ungodly, sinners, enemies; yet for your sakes Christ became poor. He left glory for souls as vile as you. He left the songs of angels, the love of his Father, and the glories of heaven for just such wretches as you and me. He died for the ungodly. So not be afraid, sinners, to lay hold upon him. It was for your sakes he came. He will not, he cannot cast you out.
