Long Orbits

26 03 2009

A long orbit is a mysterious and captivating course to contemplate. It is called an elliptical orbit.

Something technical, first:

“The Sun isn’t quite at the center of a planet’s elliptical orbit. An ellipse has a point a little bit away from the center called the “focus”. The Sun is at the focus of the ellipse. Because the Sun is at the focus, not the center, of the ellipse, the planet moves closer to and further away from the Sun every orbit. The close point in each orbit is called perihelion. The far away point is called aphelion”

Now….It appears that England, is rapidly losing the precious freedoms, which are the fruit of centuries of Christian faith, and a Christian-based parliament. Certainly this ‘loss’ is a judgment, upon a nation, for whom the gospel has done so much.

There is a rapidly increasing amount of “anti-Christian bigotry” occurring in England (as Bill Muehlenberg calls it).  See: Bill Muehlenberg

Q. Why, then, does God not act, for the nation, to turn this sad state of affairs around?
A. It is good to understand that the Living God, moves in long orbits. As that wise man, P. T. Forsyth put it:

“The non-intervention of God bears very heavy interest, and He is greatly to be feared when He does nothing. He moves in long orbits, out of sight and sound. But He always arrives. Nothing can arrest the judgment of the Cross, nothing shake the judgment-seat of Christ” (in The Justification of God).

Idols can not help. False god’s are in themselves, judgments. May the Lord, “arrive”, yet again, in English soil.
