"Worldly excellencies ... cannot satisfy the sense of men, much less can it satisfy the souls of men." Reverend William Dyer knew full well that satisfication is found only when the soul is enamored with Christ, when the magnificent names of God are saturated with sweetness. Walk through seven names that describe the personhood of God, and find satisfaction as you draw yourself close to Him.
REVEREND WILLIAM DYER was born in England in 1632. During his earlier ministry he was a pastor with the Church of England at Chesham and Cholesbury. He and many other pastors were known as ¿Puritans¿ because of their desire to purify and reform the state church. However, in 1662, Dyer and over two thousand other Puritans pastors were ejected from their parishes because of a lack of compliance to the new policies of the church. In the year following his dismissal from the church he wrote two of his most enduring books, A Cabinet of Jewels and Christ¿s Famous Titles. In his later life he worked alongside the Quakers because of their zeal for Christ and passion for souls. He was buried among them in Southwark, England in April of 1696. From his writings he is seen to have been a man of great character, earnest to win men to the Lord, and eager to build up the saints in the love and confidence of Christ.
