We have said thus much, because it was sufficient to show the nature
of God to such as are ignorant of it, that it is various, and acts many
different ways, and that all events happen after a regular manner, in their
proper season, and that it foretells what must come to pass. It is also
sufficient to show the ignorance and incredulity of men, whereby they are
not permitted to foresee any thing that is future, and are, without any
guard, exposed to calamities, so that it is impossible for them to avoid
the experience of those calamities.
