    Rev. Samuel Davies 1724 - 1816

    Post  Pastor Jay on Wed May 02, 2012 8:37 pm

    In colonial America, Rev. Davies became a renouned Presbyterian preacher. His sermons speaking out against the tyranical rule of the British empire and his supportive speech towards liberty and freedom gained popularity in the American colonies. It is believed by some that his stand against tyranny led to the rise of the Black Regiment Pastors in the War of Independance.

    sampling from link below;

    Davies' fame as a preacher was so great in London that news reached King George II that a dissenting minister from the colony of Virginia was attracting notice and drawing very crowded audiences. When the king expressed a strong desire to hear him, his chaplain invited Davies to preach in the royal chapel. He is said to have complied and preached before the royal family and many of the nobility. As Davies was preaching, the king was seen speaking at different times to those around him. While the king was speaking, Mr. Davies paused and became silent. He then looked in the direction of the king and is said to have exclaimed, 'When the lion roars, the beasts of the forest all tremble; and when King Jesus speaks, the princes of the earth should keep silence'.
