Re: Utopia or Judgment?

It is not my business as a preacher to spend my time in civil rights demonstrations, or seeking to bring a Utopia on earth....My one task shall be to preach the Word, not expecting to solve the problems of the nations until Jesus comes. Today God is calling out a remnant...in response to the preaching of the Word of God. I believe it is a sin for a Christian who knows his Bible to become greatly upset about world conditions as though God were not in control any longer. --M.R.DeHaan

Even where their religion includes a belief that Christ is coming again, they think the world is not yet good enough for that, being ignorant that God has said it is not yet bad enough for His judgment. --E.W.Bullinger

Essentially, the great work of the church consists only in saving souls from the unavoidable wreck of the world that is sure to come. --D.L.Moody

"..God at the first visited the Gentiles to take out of them a people for His name. (Acts15:14)

Even so then, at this present time there is a remnant according to the election of grace. (Rom11:5)

"...for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet complete."(Gen15:16) And he behaved very abominably in following idols, according to all that the Amorites had done, whom the LORD had cast out before the children of Israel.(1Ki21:26) ...He defeated many nations And slew mighty kings; Sihon king of the Amorites...(Ps135:10-11)

For the wicked are reserved for the day of doom; They shall be brought out on the day of wrath. (Job21:30)

The great day of the LORD is near; It is near and hastens quickly. The noise of the day of the LORD is bitter; There the mighty men shall cry out. That day is a day of wrath, A day of trouble and distress, A day of devastation and desolation, A day of darkness and gloominess, A day of clouds and thick darkness,(Zep1:14-15)

But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. And on some have compassion, making a distinction; but others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire, hating even the garment defiled by the flesh. (Jude1:20-23)
(VW)
