A-men! It reminded me of something that I read yesterday:“He cannot lie in his prophecies. How solemnly true have they been! Ask the wastes of Nineveh; turn to the mounds of Babylon; let the traveller speak concerning Idumea and Petra; turn even to the rock of Sidon, and to thy land, O Immanuel. We may boldly ask the traveller. ‘Hath he said, and hath he not done it? Have his words fallen to the ground? Has God’s curse been an idle word?’ No, not in one single case. All the words of the Lord are sure. The prophecies will be as true as they have been, and the Book of Revelation, though we may not comprehend it to-day, will doubtless be fulfilled in every stroke and in every line, and we shall marvel how it was that we did not know its meaning, but at present it is enough for us to know its truth—its meaning shall only be learned as the events explain the prophesy.”
C. H. Spurgeon, “What God Cannot Do!,” in The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit Sermons, Vol. 10. Originally preached on May 8, 1864. (London: Passmore & Alabaster, 1864), 259.
