“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair…”  (Charles Dickens)

It is not either/or.  It is both/and.  We are in an extraordinary time.  And it is still in its infancy.  What we see presently are merely the “birth pangs”.  Still in seed form.  But more and more, we will see the darkness getting darker and the Light getting brighter.  And all those who have put their faith and trust in the faithfulness and love and power of Jesus will not be disappointed.

 “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you.  See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the LORD rises upon you and His glory appears over you.  Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn.”  (Isaiah 60:1-3)

And as this happens, the last and greatest Revival of the human race will break forth — as many in darkness will see (some for the first time) the true Light of Christ, as it shines forth from His Bride — and as they see this, they will run to the Light!
