Wisdom Throughout Eternity
God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit
of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: the eyes of your
understanding being enlightened. Eph. 1:17, 18
The science of redemption is the science
of all sciences, the science that is the study of the angels and of all the
intelligences of the unfallen worlds, the science that engages the attention of
our Lord and Saviour, the science that enters into the purpose brooded in the
mind of the Infinite--"kept in silence through times eternal," the
science that will be the study of God's redeemed throughout the endless ages.
This is the highest study in which it is possible for man to engage. As no
other study can, it will quicken the mind and uplift the soul. . . .
The theme of redemption is one that
angels desire to look into; it will be the science and the song of the redeemed
throughout the ceaseless ages of eternity. Is it not worthy of careful thought
and study now? . . .
The subject is inexhaustible. The study
of the incarnation of Christ, His atoning sacrifice, and mediatorial work will
employ the mind of the diligent student as long as time shall last; and looking
to heaven with its unnumbered years, he will exclaim, "Great is the
mystery of godliness."
In eternity we shall learn that which,
had we received the enlightenment that it was possible to obtain here, would
have opened our understanding. The themes of redemption will employ the hearts
and minds and tongues of the redeemed through the everlasting ages. They will
understand the truths which Christ longed to open to His disciples, but which
they did not have faith to grasp. Forever and forever new views of the
perfection and glory of Christ will appear. Through endless ages the faithful
Householder will bring forth from His treasures things new and old.
Since God is infinite, and in Him are all
the treasures of wisdom, we may to all eternity be ever searching, ever
learning, yet never exhaust the riches of His wisdom, His goodness, or His
