TJC at 100: Towards the Triumphant Church
Table of Contents
A hundred years is a significant milestone, and milestones are important if we are serious about our goal.
The end of a thing is better than its beginning (Eccl 7:8a).
“Declaring the end from the beginning,
And from ancient times things that are not yet done,
Saying, ‘My counsel shall stand,
And I will do all My pleasure.’ ” (Isa 46:10)
“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.” (Rev 22:13)
This second centennial issue looks towards the triumphant church—conceived in eternity and declared at the very beginning—when the promised Savior will crush Satan under His feet and ours (Gen 3:15; Rom 16:20). The significance of century—let it be a blessing, not bane. We know whom we have believed, and that we are indeed His elect community—both an assurance and a great responsibility.
