'The Heavenly Footman' - John Bunyan 1698; He That Will Have Heaven Must Run For It  [Audio-Vid w/Text Scroll] - 'So Run'

"The Heavenly Footman", by John Bunyan, 1698. Reposted - because it's no time to ease up now. While the world and those 'running' it today are running headlong into gross darkness (Isaiah 60:2), you, believer, just keep running a nice steady pace the other way [1Cor. 9:24] ...because this world passeth away, but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever (1John 2:15-17). So run ye...

So run, that ye may obtain 1 Corinthians 9:24

Full length audio, unabridged, w/scrolling text for read along; Note audio a robo-voice - MS 'David' - slightly speeded up, tone lowered, definitely 'listenable to' - w/scrolling text especially. Bunyan was a prolific author known primarily for his classic work Pilgrims Progress often said to be the 2nd bestselling book of all time behind only the Holy Bible. True or not can't say but here is another Bunyan work which could be considered a classic also, and as such is worth the effort to carefully listen to it in it's entirety; 80 min. (it is lengthy - listening/watching in parts can be a good approach)

how to run so as to obtain. With an epistle to all the slothful and careless people.
By J O H N B U N Y A N.
1698.
"The doctrine is this: THEY THAT WILL HAVE HEAVEN, MUST RUN FOR IT; I say, they that will have heaven, they must run for it. I beseech you to heed it well. Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run ye. The prize is heaven, and if you will have it, you must run for it. You have another scripture for this in the 12th of the Hebrews, the 1st, 2d, and 3rd verses: Wherefore seeing we also, saith the apostle, are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us. And LET US RUN, saith he. Again, saith Paul, I therefore so run, not as uncertainly, so fight I, &c."
