The Postmill Life

I came to be postmillennial in worldview when preaching through 1 John, specifically coming upon the text of 1 John 5:4–5. My postmillennialism is wrapped up in this—faith that the kingdom of God will grow increasingly on earth by the rule and reign of Christ from above to the end. According to 1 John 5:4–5, faith is essential in this matter. So, this quote I read today aided me greatly in encouragement in this world, with hope. May it be a blessing to you!

“For the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.” I think I have come to this pass with myself, at any rate for the time present, that when circumstances deny the promise, I believe it none the less. When friends forsake me, and foes belie me, and my own spirit goes down below zero, and I am depressed almost to despair, I am resolved to hang to the bare word of the Lord, and prove it to be in itself an all-sufficient stay and support. I will believe God against all the devils in hell, God against Ahithophel, and Judas, and Demas, and all the rest of the turncoats; yea, and God against my own evil heart. His purpose shall stand, “For the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.” ~C.H. Spurgeon, sermon 2013 “The Infallibility of Scripture”
