Jesus is Going to Win

Morning Glory, January 4, 1994, p. 9

Vernon Grounds writes, "A friend told me of an incident that happened while he was in seminary. Since the school had no gymnasium, he and his friends played basket ball in a nearby public school.

Nearby, an elderly janitor waited patiently until the finished playing. Invariably he sat there reading his Bible. One day my friend asked him what he was reading. The man answered, &ls;The book of Revelation.' Surprised, my friend asked if he understood it. &ls;Oh, yes,' the man assured him. &ls;I understand it!' &ls;What does it mean?' Quietly the janitor answered, &ls;It means that Jesus is gonna win.'"

Grounds concludes, "That's the best commentary I have ever heard on that book. Jesus is going to win. That's the biblical mind-set."
