Inspirational words from the past

J.H. Thornwell wrote more than a century ago:

"If the church could be aroused to a deeper sense of the glory that awaits her, she would enter with a warmer spirit into the struggles that are before her. Hope would inspire ardour. She would even now arise from the dust, and like the eagle plume her pinions for loftier flights than she has yet taken. What she wants, and what every individual Christian wants, is faith — faith in her sublime vocation, in her Divine resources, in the presence and efficacy of the Spirit that dwells in her — faith in the truth, faith in Jesus, and faith in God. With such a faith there would be no need to speculate about the future. That would speedily reveal itself."

    • From 1741, look at this - Handel's great work as the chorus reached a crescendo.

      For the lord God omnipotent reigneth
      Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

      The kingdom of this world; Is become
      The kingdom of our Lord,
      And of His Christ, And of His Christ

      And He shall reign forever and ever,
      And He shall reign forever and ever,

      And remember also from the book of Revelation: This kingdom is a vast multitude which no man can number.

      Praise his mighty name! All those whose names are written in his book!

      • One of the great things about the Christmas season is this great chorus, and other great carols like "Hark the Herald Angels Sing." Just listen to the triumphant words!
