    God has not promised that all our wrongs shall be righted at once, or even in this life; but He doth not forget the cry of the poor, and He has saidEVCO 127.3

    “Vengeance is Mine; I will repay.” 1Romans 12:19. Speaking to the poor who are oppressed by the rich, and who are even unjustly condemned and killed, the apostle of God says: “Be patient, therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it.” 2James 5:7. Surely if the farmer can wait till the harvest for the fruit of his sowing, we should likewise be willing to wait the little season for the harvest of the earth. “Therefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to Him in well-doing, as unto a faithful Creator.” 4Psalm 140:12.
