And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation.
Let the word of God be like one who, during the great flood in America, rode on a white horse down the valley, crying out, as he rode along, "To the hills, to the hills, to the hills!" The waters were following fast behind him, and he would have the people escape to the mountains, lest they should be destroyed. Oh, precious Book, thus bid me seek the hills! Ring the alarm bell in my ear, and compel me to flee from the wrath to come. Day and night, wherever I may be, may a word from the oracle of God sound in my ears, and keep me from sleeping on the bank of the abyss! May no enemy be able to steal upon us when sleeping in false security, for it is high time that we awake out of sleep, and this Book tells us so.
(C. H. Spurgeon.)
