Fighting On God's Side

And the glory of the Lord will be revealed,
and all people will see it together.
For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.
- Isaiah 40:5 -

We anticipate the happy day when the whole world shall be converted to Christ.

We know that the world and all that is in it will one day be burnt up.

We know that afterwards there will be a new heavens and a new earth.

We are not discouraged by the length of Christ's delays.

We are not disheartened by the long period He allots to the church to struggle with little success and much defeat.

We believe that God will never allow this world to be always the devil's stronghold.

Christ had come to deliver this world from the powers of darkness.

What a joy it will be when the glory of the Lord is revealed.

What a shout it will be when men and angels shall unite to cry "Hallelujah, hallelujah, for the Lord God reigns!"

What a satisfaction it will be in that day to have had a share in the fight for the victory of our Lord!

Happy are they who trust themselves with this conquering Lord, and who fight side by side with Him, doing their little in His name and by His strength!
