At the present time, as the consummation of the age draws nearer and the final settlement is in view, the battle which divides the universe into only two contending kingdoms is raging fiercely and relentlessly. It is therefore necessary that everything possible be done to inform, instruct, counsel, warn, encourage, and support those who are involved and affected. We appeal to all who read these pages, not to approach their message in any attitude of mere interest or theory, but to study them as though they themselves were directly involved in the tremendous issues at stake.
To leaders, and others in responsibility, we especially appeal, that they would consider what is here in the light of their own present experience of a “great warfare” (Dan. 10:1). If leaders would but get together to review this whole matter of the spiritual conflict, more might be accomplished in the direction of turning Defeat into Victory.
Should Field Marshal
Slim’s eye ever catch sight of this volume, I hope
that—rather than resenting it—he will be glad
that his great reversal in the earthly realm may serve,
even in a small way, to affect the so much-greater realm
of the eternal and heavenly.
