"Nando's post:  "....Satan's rebellion""

Hi John, glad to see you back :)   When I read Nando's post today, which concluded with:
"in a nut shell rebellion against God, stated (sic) by Satan must run its course (emphasis mine)
and as it ran its course already with the angelic creation it must also do with the human
creation."  When I read this, I immediately thought of Genesis 15:16, the chapter of the
Abrahamic covenant.  The 16th verse reads:  "But in the fourth generation they shall come
hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full."  The word "full" makes its first
appearance in the King James Bible here, and the Hebrew word "shaw-lame" (Strong's 8003)
means "complete, full."  As Nando explained, God fulfills His purposes in the fulness of
time.  We may cry out in anguish when we see evil run rampant, but it will have an end,
in the "fulness of the time."
