Linton, Irwin H

All agree we are living under frightening conditions. The scientists and smartest men are the “scaredest”; and even those of us not smart enough to be that scared, have to resist a tendency to feel that nothing can be done....Only Bible-believing Christians—if there be any other kind—are not on the brink of despair....They believe that the mighty Son of God “will not fail nor be discouraged until He has established righteousness and peace upon the earth....” When the Jews, “Scattered like dust among the nations,” as Moses told them they would be...find themselves coming together like the dry bones of Ezekiel’s old battlefield vision, and drawn irresistibly into the maelstrom of their final trouble in their old home; when Jerusalem is a “burdensome stone” to all [and] Gentile nations are seized with premonitions of impending, cataclysmic disaster...[the end is near]....

Evangelical Christians desire with all their hearts to mitigate the world’s present miseries....And we believe that the best and only way to do this is to carry out the orders of the Captain of our Salvation and complete His campaign plans [the gospel to all nations] while we pray and look for His return....
