John Richardson

The life of John Richardson (1667-1753) is a powerful confirmation of Jesus’ words, that heavenly things “are hidden from the wise and prudent and revealed unto babes,” and that His “power is made perfect in weakness.” Though starting out in life a poor farm boy with little education, Richardson became a faithful student in the Holy Spirit’s school of Christ, where he not only learned spiritual truths and heavenly mysteries, but came to experience his garments washed, his mind renewed, and his heart changed. Originally from England, he travelled as a minister for most of his adult life, twice visiting the American colonies, where he triumphantly defended the truth against “that sad apostate” George Keith.

I went to that dear ancient Friend John Richardson’s, who had been twice to America on religious visits, and had taken much pains in his day and time for the spreading and promoting the gospel of peace and salvation in the earth. Although he was ancient and feeble in body, he was fresh and green in the life of religion, and my heart was refreshed in the unity and fellowship of divine life, in being in his company.

“Next day I was at Castleton. I spent an hour with that emblem of innocence, and in the afternoon rode ten miles, to the house where the ark rests, i. e., John Richardson’s, who went with me next day to Pickering, and I went back with him to his home, where we sat up until almost daylight.”
