He Shall Come II

Dr-Albert-N-MartinAlbert N. Martin

Now, the question is this: after all of this stretching over several millennia—from the creation of our first parents to their fall into sin, to God’s initial announcement of redemptive grace, all the way through to the appearance of our Lord Jesus, His death, burial, resurrection, ascension, and descending of the Spirit—what is the next great act of God in that history?

Against Hastening to Remove from our Post of Duty

Charles H. Spurgeon
