God’s Sovereignty Over All of History
As Christians, we are barraged with the incredulity of the world as it marvels that we “still believe” in a universal flood, or the Tower of Babel, or [gasp!] creation according to Genesis instead of Darwinian evolution. When offered the opportunity to express our rationale for our views, we often fall into an emotional defense because we lack a grasp of the Big Picture of a young world history.
The History of the World Mega-Conference provided that template to me. I saw for the first time the linkage between the secret mystery religions of South and Central America back to Babel and beyond to the worship of the snake of the Garden.
To put the march of history to a rational timeline spanning only six millennia was amazing. I much appreciated the comprehensive view of history that was demonstrated from the basis that Scripture is true and God is sovereign, as well as the implications that were drawn from God’s providential dealing throughout time to preserve a people for Himself.
I was most appreciative of the application of God’s sovereignty throughout history as it applied to law and government. This has immediate responsibility for us as citizens in the United States of America, both to be active in our local government — even if to do no more than holding elected officials accountable — and to regain a vision for our great nation that has been so incredibly blessed. I was very convicted by Dr. Paul Jehle’s comment that “God judges nations based on the condition of the Christians in that nation.” It is a crucial paradigm shift to realize that it is our level of obedience to Scripture that brings blessings or not to a nation — not the level of wickedness in those who govern, as we so often hear from the emaciated evangelical church in America.
I was convicted and encouraged that we have great opportunities before us to capture the minds of a new generation with the truth and a proper perspective of history. We have rational answers to the evolutionist’s futile dependence on chance events over billions of years, and the lost souls trapped in the meaninglessness that evolution produces desperately need to hear that the God who created is not distant but active and engaged in history. I was blessed by many speakers — Doug Phillips, Dr. Jehle, Bill Potter, and George Grant, to name a few.
This conference was a massive undertaking, and the schedule was not for the faint of heart. It was well done, and I believe it will be fruitful for the next generation. I was blessed by the fellowship, the scholarship, and the friendship.
May God grant us His words as we share the truth of history with a dying world, and may the central figure in that history — Jesus Christ — use this conference to bring many to Himself.
