GEORGE FOX (*2 Items)
1624 — 1690
(Quaker)

*Item 1

Not long after his spiritual awakening, Fox had a second experience in 1648, when he was

24 years old. He stated:

Now I was come in spirit through the Flaming Sword, into the Paradise of God. All things

were new, and all creation gave another smell unto me than before, beyond what words can utter. I
knew nothing but pureness, and innocency, and righteousness, being renewed in the image of God
by Jesus Christ…

by William Greathouse, quoting
from the Journal of George Fox

*Item 2

I knew Jesus and he was precious to my soul; but I found something within that would not

be sweet and patient and kind; I did what I could to keep it down, but it was there; I besought the
Lord to do something for me, and when I gave Him my will He came in, and took out all that would
not be sweet and patient and kind, and then He shut the door.
