Surely the success promised to Jeremiah’s ministry is promised also to the ministry of the Church, for Jesus says to us, “and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the world!” God’s purpose for the earth and for the inhabitants of the world will be fulfilled even though God’s enemies strive against Him and His Church. Here again is postmillennial hope! Here is Gospel victory, victory in history for the Kingdom of God!
The path to Christ’s own victory was the Cross. And it has been acknowledged throughout the centuries that “the blood of the martyrs is seed of the Church.” Seed is multiplication – “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it produces much grain” John 12:24 (NKJV).
