From Amanda

God Controls the Clock
Many people are asking. "Where is history
heading?" A careful student of the Bible will see that
God controls the clock of destiny. Amidst the            
world's confusion. God's omnipotent hand moves,        
working out His unchanging plan and purpose.           
Not that we always see His hand at work. As the
old English hymn writer William Cowper put it, "God 
moves in a mysterious way, His wonders to perform."
God is not absent. By His providence He sustains us, 
and behind the scenes He is working to bring about  
His divine purpose.                                                 
What is that purpose? Paul recorded it this
way: "That...He might gather together in on all things
in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on  
earth" (Eph. 1:10). Some day Satan's rule will be      
ended, and Christ will reign as Lord over all creation.
Some day all the sin and rebellion of this corrupted   
universe will be destroyed, and Christ's kingdom of 
righteousness and peace will rule forever.                
Don't be discouraged by what you see in the
headlines every day. God is at work, and some day   
Christ will rule.
