Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

about to reign...

about to reign

"Does it not seem strange that Satan
has been allowed for six thousand years
to wrap and twist his coils around the world,
to work evil, and spoil, and mar the work of God?
Is it not a mystery why God,
the God of righteousness and holiness,
allows evil to go unpunished
and His own people to be
crushed and broken on every hand?
Truly this is the mystery of God...
God bears with evil till the hour of Judgment arrives,
when He will avenge the cry of His elect,
and come out of His place to punish the wicked...
evil, now tolerated and allowed,
will be openly punished.
The mystery is at an end.
Christ is about to reign."
- Walter Scott
