AS YOU TURN TO THE BOOK OF ISAIAH, YOU WILL FIND THAT ISAIAH 28:15, SAYS ‘O YE SCORNFUL MEN, ye leaders of Israel, because ye have said we have made a covenant with death and with hell, you are in agreement when the overthrowing scourge shall pass through, and it shall not come unto you. Know ye then, ye scornful men, that I will destroy your covenant with death, and your agreement with hell shall not stand, and when the scourge shall pass through, they ye shall be trodden down.’
This, my friends, is a significant situation as we look back over our history in the past. For you and I are a part of the pattern of a great society, a great civilization, a great culture and a great Kingdom. We have watched the development of the program of God’s Kingdom from the days of the begatting of the Adamic race down to the fulfilment of this great nation of which you and I are a part. As we look back over these patterns of prophecy, we can recognize that our history is a fulfilment of Divine prophecy. For God has prophesied and declared the development of HIS society and HIS Kingdom.
And HE planted your race in the earth for the overthrowing of evil, of this there is no question. But in the course of this design, we have watched the fulfilment of Biblical patterns of history from Adam down to the establishment of the Kingdom at Mt. Sinai, and from that Kingdom into a great nation, and from that nation into its divisions and its migrations. And then in to a great nation and a company of nations as God has fulfilled these prophecies which HE has ordained. In all of this, HE promised that HIS Kingdom should emerge, a growing Kingdom, the mighty Kingdom which HE had ordained. We have watched this expansion of the House of God. We have watched the Westward migration and its occupation of Western Europe, and then its colonization to the ends of the earth as they developed Australia, South Africa, and came to this continent, and to other areas of the earth with their programs of civilization.
