Ultimate bliss and ultimate destruction.


The warmth of the sun verses the destructiveness of fire…

“Joy and peace and bliss are found in him alone”, states Hoeksema in his Reformed Dogmatics. God dwells in totally unperturbed blessedness, unaffected by the sin of his creatures, because he is outside of time and creation which he made, and all that is in them will ultimately glorify him, though in no way ADD to his infinite perfections. When we are glorified we will partake of this blessedness of mind.

Why does Satan tremble when we pray? Because in answer to our prayers Christ judges the wicked on earth, who are his slaves and will ultimately return to destroy them, the antichrist, the beast, death, hell and he himself in the lake of fire. No wonder the Spirit intercedes within us.
