The Authority of the Intercessor

 – John A. MacMillan

     ~~ So unreasonable to the natural mind seems the proposition of Jehovah to His people (Isa. 45: 11) that they should “command” Him concerning the work of His hands, that various alternative readings of the passage have been made with the intent of toning down the apparent extravagance of the divine offer. Men are slow to believe that the Almighty really means exactly what He says. They think it a thing incredible that He should share with human hands the throttle of infinite power. Nor have they the spiritual understanding to comprehend the purpose of the Father to bring those who have been redeemed with the precious blood of His dear Son into living and practical co-operation with that Son in the administration of His kingdom.~
