By a similar benefit, our faithful Saviour has at this time showed His gracious presence to the Church in the Netherlands which was heavily persecuted for a good few years.   This Church was always redeemed by the might hand of God from the tyranny of the Romish Antichrist and the terrible idolatry of the Papacy.   In the midst of the dangers of such a long-lasting war, she was frequently protected in wonderful ways.   And, by unitedly holding fast to the true doctrine and discipline to the praise of her God, she greatly blossomed.   She was expanded unto admirable growth of the Republic and joy of the entire Reformed World.
