The Church -- A Restraint to Evil
August 28 | Taken from a message by Adrian Rogers
One of these days, Satan is going to be released and the restraint will be gone. When will that be? When the church is raptured! You see, the world doesn't like us. They wish we were gone. We are a pain to them.
The Bible calls us salt and light. What does salt do? It preserves, but it also stings and irritates. One of these days, this preserving, stinging, irritating salt will be taken out. And when that happens, there will be such a flood of lawlessness that the world won't be able to stop it. You might as well try to dam up Niagara Falls with toothpicks as to stop the of wickedness that will come in that day.
