“It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority…”
If the Lord returns this very second, well then, are not “…the ends of the earth” where we currently stand?
May we pray for the mercy and grace that we ourselves be truly converted to Christ, for if all the world were to focus on that, then all the world would be set “on fire”.
To truly “preach” the Gospel is to be truly transfigured. For it is the power of His glory, in us, around us, despite us, that brings others to Christ.
A single man standing absolutely still—but who has Christ truly within him—brings more healing and peace to all the world than an army of men continually running around the globe glorifying themselves in His Most Sacred Name.
For redemption is always by His power, for His glory, and within His Kingdom. It is HIS Church.
May we approach Him in our absolute nothingness, for that is all we truly possess.
Men come and go, keep your eyes on Christ.
The world turns, the Cross stands still.
