How Wondrous is God’s Patience with the World Today!

How wondrous is God’s patience with the world today.  On every side people are sinning with a high hand.  The divine law is trampled under foot and God Himself openly despised.  It is truly amazing that He does not instantly strike dead those who so brazenly defy Him,  Why does He not suddenly cut off the haughty infidel and blatant blasphemer, as He did Ananias and Sapphira?  Why does He not cause the earth to open its mouth and devour the persecutors of His people, so that, like Dathan and Amiram, they shall go down alive into the Pit?  And what of apostate Christendom, where every possible form of sin is now tolerated and practiced under cover of the holy name of Christ?  Why does not the righteous wrath of Heaven make an end of such abominations?  Only one answer is possible: because God hears with “much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction.”
