ChristÕs Triumph by the Gospel


ŌThey shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.Ķ                                                                                                                            (Isaiah 11:6-9)


Isaiah assures us of the advance of the gospel in this world and, ultimately, of ChristÕs triumph over the world by the gospel. It is the revelation of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ by the gospel that conquers the hearts of men. And it shall be by the revelation of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ through the preaching of the gospel that antichrist shall at last be slain.


Though there is today a great famine in the world, a famine for the Word of God (Amos 8:12), (though gospel preachers and gospel churches are few and far between), if I read the Book of God right, even in the midst of BabylonÕs apparent rule, our God rules still, and in the latter day glory of this gospel age, GodÕs glory in Christ shall be made known in every corner of the earth!


The glory of God revealed in the salvation of his elect by the doing and dying of the Lord Jesus shall fill the earth as the waters fill the sea! Gospel churches shall be found in every place. Gospel preachers shall be heard in every street. And Christ shall be known and worshipped in every corner. — ŌThe knowledge of the glory of the LordĶ (Habakkuk 2:14) shall cover the earth (Revelation 11:11).


Even now IsaiahÕs and HabakkukÕs prophecies are beginning to be fulfilled. By means of our internet web page (, before the sun sets tomorrow night, the messages you hear here today will be heard in the four corners of the earth! Yes, Babylon shall fall! Yes, the gospel shall be triumphant! The Scriptures plainly assert this glorious fact (Revelation 11:11; 14:6-8). Antichrist shall be slain by the Sword of our SaviorÕs mouth (Revelation 19:11-21); and the Sword of our mighty CaptainÕs mouth is the Word of God, the gospel of the glory of God.


May God give us grace to publish the glory! — To preach the gospel! — To make known in all the earth the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ our Lord!


Then, when the Lord Jesus comes in his glory, there shall come the restitution of all things to the glory of God; and all the Earth shall know that God has glorified himself in the salvation of our souls!


Between now and then, nothing shall destroy or even hurt GodÕs Holy Mountain, Zion, but only assist her (Revelation 12:16). Then, Ōin the dispensation of the fulness of times the Triune Jehovah shall gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him: In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own willĶ (Ephesians 1:10-11).
