American friends would ask me, Are there any restrictions there in Denmark? My answer was, Denmark is now like you one big restriction. 

Some experts “prophesy”, it´s getting worse, and April may be at its  peak. I´m tempted to say like Winston Churchill in one of his last speeches in the House, “I watch the little children playing and I ask myself, What will happen to them, if God one day should be tired of mankind?” 

As a grandfather of most precious grandchildren in America and Denmark I can´t help thinking in similar terms.

However, despite what lies ahead, there is still, “an eternal gospel to proclaim to those who dwell on earth” (Rev. 14:6) as God´s  ultimatum before it´s all over.  It does seem as if the obstinacy of the rebellious mankind will continue even now and on and on.

Isa. 28 proclaims the gospel of “Cornerstone in Zion” (Christ), v. 16, but it also portrays an obstinate people that arrogantly makes a covenant with the satanic darkness (v. 15), saying “it will not come to us”, like they do now. Though the gospel is there.  The people take their refuge in lies (v. 15) and so the gospel of lies fills up our TV screens and so do many churches.

“The Living Bible” paraphrases Isa. 28:13, “The Lord will spell it out for them again, repeating it over and over in simple words whenever He can; yet over this simple, straight-forward message they will stumble and fall, and be broken, trapped and captured.” 

It´s still time to “spell it out”, that simple gospel despite the obstinacy.

I once asked an old preacher in Norway, “How was it during the war?”  He said, “It was an evil time, but also a good time”, and he referred to the spiritual revivals they had during that time.

Let us pray with Habakkuk, “Revive your work!”  Or as the Danish Bible puts it, “Let it happen again!” (Hab. 3:1)
