‘The Certainty of God’s Will’

See the source image

There’s a lot of good stuff on the Chalcedon website today, and I hope some of you will visit it. But I’d like to highlight this message Mark Rushdoony wrote, the day after Thanksgiving.


“Without a belief in the certainty of God’s will being done on earth as it is in heaven, we could become very discouraged,” Mark writes. That’s putting it mildly. Even the martyred saints in paradise find it hard to wait for that. If you don’t have a Bible handy, here’s the verses:

…I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? (Revelation 6:9-10)

We have to be faithful, we have to be patient.

God will do everything that He has said He will do, in His own time.

We have His promise. And we have His Son.

  1. AMEN. And without those unfailing promises, it would be very difficult to live in this messed up world. What He has said, He WILL do, we can count on it.

  2. A perfect example of the need for a Christian to be in the Word daily. How many Christians do you know who are versed in the Bible? I think we have found a big part of the problem – compromised Christians. Scripture says God’s judgment begins in the house of the Lord, so we had better be prayed up if we go pointing our finger at others.

  3. Here’s my carol request for Tuesday — “The Holly and the Ivy.’ (Robert Shaw Chorale, maybe?)
