God Keeps the Reins in His Hand

We know too much about things in this world to lean much on man. … Every single item of history today is certainly in accord with God’s intention, even though it seems that almost all of it is contrary to His will. Only if that is true can we have universal reconciliation. God can save all mankind eventually only if He keeps the reins in His hand. All will not simply be saved, but reconciled, glorifying God. All this is fulfilling God’s intention. …

So let us give thanks for it, no matter how bad it seems to be. When we realize this, then we can live in this insane asylum, and we will not quarrel with the inmates. … We acknowledge that all is out of Him, as well as through Him and, consequently will be for Him in the great consummation.

When the Goal Is Attained

For of Him, and through Him, and to Him, are all things: to Whom be glory for ever. Amen (Romans 11:36).

In the issues of God’s dispensations there can be no permanent ill. He is absolutely good. Of Him are all things, through Him are all things, and to Him are all things (Romans 11:36).

When the goal is attained, all will be well. When our visions are unsealed by the life immortal, we shall perceive that what our finite sense termed ill in this life was but a necessary part of the great and wonderful plan of human redemption.

The Keys of Death and Hell

Keys lock and unlock things. That’s their purpose.

In Revelation 1:17-18 Christ says,

Fear not; I am the First and the Last: I am He Who lives, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

Think of it: God sent His Son “to be the Savior of the world” (I John 4:14); and now Christ has possession of the keys of death and hell. What do you think the “Savior of the world” (John 4:42), the One Who came to set captives free (Luke 4:18), is going to do with “the keys of hell and of death”? Lock, or unlock them?

Are you afraid of death or hell? Well, you needn’t be. Now that Christ has the keys to both of them, it’s of little wonder that He prefaced His powerful declaration with, “Fear not!”
