Quote to Consider
Herman Hoeksema on Lord’s Day 12: “The Son was ordained from
eternity to become flesh, that He might stand at the head of
a great congregation, and declare unto us the Father, and
reveal His glory, in such fulness and beauty as the first
Adam would never have been able to conceive. He was anointed
to do this antithetically, over against a world that loves
the lie and walks in darkness, saving out of that world a
people that in eternal glory would with Him and through Him
declare the glory of Him that called them out of darkness
into His marvelous light. The work of the devil and the
rebellion of the first man do not frustrate the purpose of
God, but must serve His good pleasure to make room for the
coming of the Messiah, the anointed of God, as the chief
Prophet” (The Triple Knowledge, vol. 1, p. 488).
