Evangelism Story

Keeping a Promise I will come again. John 14:3.

On March 12, 1942, the war in the Pacific wasn't going well for the Allied troops. American general Douglas MacArthur received orders to abandon the Philippines to the invading Japanese Army. Before leaving the islands, General MacArthur promised the people, "I shall return." His words resounded over the shortwave radio and into the terrified hearts of those he had to leave behind.

On October 20, 1944, after U.S. planes bombed the Japanese stronghold in the north, four divisions of American soldiers landed on Leyte, a small island in the north. After a few hours of battle General MacArthur stepped on Philippine soil, thus fulfilling his promise to return to free the citizens of the Philippine Islands from the Japanese Army. That was World War II.

A much greater war has been raging since before the Garden of Eden, a war that was won on the hill of Mount Calvary.

Two thousand years ago, when Jesus returned to heaven, He promised His followers, "I will return." One day I know He will return to keep His promise too. When He does, He will not only liberate the people of the Philippine Islands. The King of the universe will free all those on Planet Earth who love Him, regardless of their nationality, colour, or heritage. Aren't you glad He keeps His word?
