HIS TRUTH IS MARCHING ON!

Psalm 119:89-96

It was December of 1861. Mrs. Julia Ward Howe, her husband, and some friends were visiting Washington. The city was an armed camp. Pickets patrolled the railroad and a hundred camps circled in the darkness, marked by their glowing watch-fires. Deeply stirred by the sights and sounds of war, Mrs. Howe wrote the words to the now immortal Battle Hymn of the Republic.

The least known of it’s five verses goes like this:

I have read a fiery gospel

Writ in burning rows of steel.

‘As ye deal with my condemners,

So my grace with you shall deal.

Let the hero born of woman

Crush the serpent with his heel

Since God is marching on.

HIS TRUTH IS MARCHING ON!

Long before this world was created, the Godhead devised a plan for the ages that would mean a way out for mankind–a way out of the darkness of humanity’s soul that was to come. That plan would center around a Messiah who would redeem the nations.

GOD’S TRUTH WAS MARCHING ON!

The enemy of mankind and of God would seek to throw up a roadblock to this plan, but to no avail, for God would see to it that he would be utterly defeated. In the end, Satan would be no match for the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, try as he may.

GOD’S TRUTH WAS MARCHING ON!

All was well in the beginning. Our first parents walked and talked with God in perfect harmony.

But they couldn’t stand prosperity and ate the forbidden fruit. Obedience turned to rebellion and set the course for the road of failure for all the generations to follow. So God kicked them out of the Garden, much like their new master had been thrown out of heaven. It would take millennium before the new Adam would restore the relationship once experienced. However, it spite of this disastrous event,

GOD’S TRUTH WAS MARCHING ON!

It wasn’t long before sin reigned in the hearts of mankind. God couldn’t stand it any longer, so he sent a flood to cleanse the earth. But before it rained, He raised up one man—Noah, who was righteous in an unrighteous world. God gave Noah the blueprints for an Ark with which eight souls were spared. Noah was the butt of jokes but no one was laughing when it began to pour, and especially after the door was shut. Rejection of God’s way always leads to disaster.

GOD’S TRUTH WAS MARCHING ON!

At one time the whole world spoke a single language and the world’s first skyscraper was built at Babel. The idea was that man, through his own efforts, could reach into the heavens. It would be a monument to their greatness. Technology began to replace God! The Lord saw it all and caused a confusion by giving them many languages and thereby scattering them all over the earth.

BUT GOD’S TRUTH KEPT MARCHING ON!

Then God called a man named Abraham. He dared to trust God for his future, left the security of his homeland and ventured into the unknown. He believed God and was rewarded with a righteous standing before God. In fact, he became the father of many nations. His name is forever etched in the hall of faith found in Hebrews 11.

AND GOD’S TRUTH MARCHED ON!

Some time later a great famine struck the Middle East and God chose Joseph to be His man for the hour. Joseph had God’s anointing upon him and he rose up through the ranks, from dad’s favorite to slavery, to prison, to Prime Minister. Integrity ruled the day and Joseph rescued Israel by the hand of God. Again, Satan thought he had succeeded in thwarting God’s plan, but...

GOD’S TRUTH WAS MARCHING ON!

Eventually the Jews found themselves enslaved by the Egyptians. Centuries had passed and the memories of Joseph had been forgotten. The Israelites cried out to God for deliverance. He put His plan into action. God chose Moses, an unlikely and unwilling man to deliver the Hebrews. His voice could be heard in the court of Pharoah, shouting, “Let my people go!”

But Pharoah was a stubborn ruler. He wouldn’t believe Moses, so God sent plagues to convince him: frogs, flies, locusts, boils, hailstones, and darkness. Nothing seemed to work, until that horrible night when the firstborn of Egypt were struck by the death angel. At last, Pharoah told Moses to get out! You see, in the end, God always has His way—as do those who side with Him.

Pharoah chased the Jews all the way to the Red Sea. Just when all seemed to be lost, with no where to turn, God told Moses to stretch out his rod over the waters and they parted. After the Israelites had crossed over on dry ground, Moses again stretched out his rod and the waters fell in upon the enemies of God. Not one of them survived. They drowned in their sin and wickedness, as...
