His Words Speak

I believe the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. had a clear vision of his Lord, his home, his meaning in life. He was fighting for His Kingdom. The Kingdom of God. The. Kingdom. of. God.

The final paragraph of his final speech, “I See the Promised Land:”

“Well, I don't know what will happen now. We've got some difficult days ahead. But it doesn't matter with me now. Because I've been to the mountaintop. And I don't mind. Like anybody, I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place. But I'm not concerned about that now. I just want to do God's will. And He's allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I've looked over. And I've seen the promised land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people will get to the promised land. And I'm happy, tonight. I'm not worried about anything. I'm not fearing any man.
Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord.”

Thank you, Pastor King.
