“Bless His glorious name forever! Let the whole earth be filled with His glory. Amen and Amen! Psalm 72:19
What a prospect – this earth, now under the power of the evil one, renewed and filled with the glory of God. Though it is hard to believe, it surely will come to pass; God’s Word is the pledge of it. God’s Son, by His blood and death, conquered the power of sin. The power of God is working out His purpose and the whole earth will be filled with His glory!
But it is a difficult work. It is two thousand years since Christ ascended the throne, and yet hundreds of millions have never learned the name of Jesus. Of the rest, there are millions have never learned the name of Jesus. Of the rest, there are millions called by His name, yet they don’t even know Him. This work of bringing the knowledge of Christ to every creature has been entrusted to the Church that thinks little of its responsibility and of the consequence of its neglect. Will the work ever be done? God’s power and faithfulness are pledges that one day we shall see it – the whole earth filled with the glory of God.
What a wonderful prayer! For it is a prayer: “Let the whole earth be filled with His glory. Amen and Amen!” Every believer is called to this prayer. How wonderful to now that true prayer will indeed be answered! What a joy to seek Gods’ face and, with confidence, pray with perseverance until the earth is full of His Glory!
