From the beginning I foretell the outcome, And from long ago the things that have not yet been done. I say, ‘My decision (or purpose) will stand, And I will do whatever I please.’– ISAIAH 46:10
This verse fills me with confidence. How many politicians make pledges and promises to secure votes into office, but then later abandon them when it seems inconvenient or impossible to honour them?
Yet the true God is able to say thousands of years of advance that He will end wickedness and He will establish a clean earth full of healthy creatures. There is no obstacle to the fulfilment of God’s purposes that He cannot overcome. Indeed, whatever pleases Him will take place.
It is clear from the scriptures that we are living deep in the time of the end of wickedness. Soon we will see the fulfilment of God’s Will on earth.
