God Breaks Through!

Since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
II Peter 3:4

It is the argument of the scoffers concerning the Lord’s return, but it is used in a fair wider range: “God is not interested in what becomes of us. God has not spoken with finality in the Bible. God did not take human form in Jesus Christ. Jesus was not virgin-born. He did not rise from the dead. He is not coming again. Men are born to be what they become, and there is no new birth. God does not guide and keep people. He does not answer prayer.” In support of all this is the old argument: “ ‘All things continue as from the beginning of creation’; things run a natural course fixed by law, and God never breaks through.”

But He has broken through in His Word and in His Son, and He does save and guide and keep and answer prayer. There is a higher law, not contra-natural, but supernatural.

No, things do not continue as they were from the beginning, God breaks through! How we need a fresh visitation! “Oh that thou wouldst rend the heavens….(and) come down!”
