And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God, which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb. (Revelation 7:10)
We who believe in God’s faithfulness and in the inspired Scriptures are certain that the world’s redemption does not lie in the hands of mankind. I cannot tell you how glad I am that this is at least one thing that we humans cannot bungle!
The plan of salvation and the day of consummation that is coming are in God’s eternal plan. The power in redemption is God’s power. Only the worthy Lamb of God could die in our place. This is God’s way of doing things, not our way!
Millions have feared the threat of world-wide communism with silly, frightened people declaring they would “rather be Red than dead!” But communism cannot prevail because it is raised in a materialism teaching that there is no God, no Christ, no heaven and no hell. Communism cannot prevail because our God in heaven has His plan and program, not just for this earth, but for all of His vast created universe.
There is no human being and no human philosophy or force able to wrest dominion from our living God. Are we being faithful in our witness and warning of the wrath of the Lamb—the crucified, resurrected, outraged Lamb of God?
