Acts 11:18 KJV
When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying, Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life.
The best news for the world today is Acts 11:18.
That God has granted repentance unto life to Gentiles as well as Jews has indeed changed the course of human history. Yea, it has become the course of history. The influence of Christianity, both pure and corrupt is the one major factor of history, certainly in the Western world.
The conflict of pure faith against corrupted faith which began with Cain slaying Abel has continued on first in God's hand upon the Jews and now for just over two thousand years, among the Gentiles. And in the same tradition of Cain and Abel, true faith has won out not in the physical power to overwhelm the opponent but through the humble blood of the righteous speaking from the ground.
Faith wins not through carnal weapons of the flesh but through God.
- We speak
- We trust and
- We wait upon the Lord
And in waiting, we have victory.
