Job, Matthew, I John
Woe to the land shadowing with wings, which is beyond the rivers of Ethiopia:
That sendeth ambassadors by the sea, even in vessels of bulrushes upon the waters, saying,
Go, ye swift messengers, to a nation scattered and peeled, to a people terrible from
their beginning hitherto; a nation meted out and trodden down, whose land the rivers have spoiled!
The Seal of the Society for the Propogation of the Gospel
The seal below was designed in the first year of the Eighteenth Century (1701 AD).
The words around the edge read
"SIGILLUM SOCIETATIS DE PROMOVENDO EVANGLIO IN PARTIBUS TRANSMARINIS" which is usually translated as
"Seal of the Society for the Propogation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts." A more literal translation
would render the last word transmarinis as "across the sea" which is represented in the Ship
crossing the Sea in the Seal below. The banner above the people says
"Transiens Adiuva Nos "
which means "Come over and help us!" The Preacher on the bow, holding an open Bible, is nearly half
as tall as the mast. A strong wind, representing the Holy Spirit, fills the sails, forcefully
driving the ship to deliver the Gospel to the new land.
More information on the SPG and this Seal can be found on
Anglican's Online site. Its
supernatural integration with the Inner Wheel of Isaiah is discussed in the Isaiah 18 article.
