Learning from Illustrious Men
Learning from Illustrious Men by George Hawtin. Our relationship to Jesus Christ will be mightily enhanced as we give heed to a great line of our illustrious forefathers, who through their immovable faith in God subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight and turned to flight the armies of the aliens. Women received their dead raised to life again; others were tortured, not accepting deliverance, that they might obtain a better resurrection; and others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment: they were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented; (of whom the world was not worthy:) They wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth. And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise: God having provided some better things for us, that they without us should not be made perfect. Heb. 11:32-39
Learning from Illustrious Men
In all the sad, dark history of the world, where the omni-present power of evil stalks like a ranging bear, God has not left Himself without faithful witnesses, men and women staunch, steadfast, immovable, worthy of trust and loved by God. By the eye of faith they were able to look far into the on-coming millenniums to see the unfolding purpose of dispensa-tions yet unborn and grasp the consummation of the eternal plan of the Most High. God, the possessor of all wisdom and understanding, has purposed that in the dispensation of the fullness of times He would gather into Christ everything in heaven and everything in earth. There shall be nothing left un-restored, nothing left unredeemed, no one left unsaved. Hell itself will be emptied of its inhabitants whosoever they be even as Christ, that towering rock of ages, Himself declared when He said, “On this rock will I build My ecclesia; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” Gates are not for at-tack. Gates are constructed for defense and the gates of hell shall fail to keep her inhabitants against the power of Christ. Surely this is what the Psalmist spoke when he plucked his harp strings and sang, “Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, He is the King of glory.”
