Revelation - Part 30

Our Warrior King l Revelation 19 l Pt. 30

QUOTE

There is no death for the Christian; it has, as I have emphasized repeatedly, been completely abolished. But the old dark god with his weapons of basic, primitive fear still operates, quite illegitimately, in many Christian hearts. We should allow him no foothold, for he has no right to be there, and he has no real power over us.”

J. B. Phillips

 

“God incarnate is the end of fear; and the heart that realizes that he is in the midst…will be quiet in the midst of alarm.”

F. B. Meyer
