    God Pities the Lost World

    All the agencies for corrupting human hearts had been put in operation. The Son of God looked on the world with compassion and saw how men and women had become victims of satanic cruelty. Bewildered and deceived, they were moving on in a gloomy march toward death in which there is no hope of life, toward night after which comes no morning.HH 15.1

    The bodies of human beings had become the habitat of demons. Supernatural beings worked people’s senses, nerves, passions, and organs in indulging the most shameful lust. The stamp of demons was imprinted on human faces. What a spectacle for the world’s Redeemer to behold!HH 15.2

    Sin had become a science, and vice a part of religion. Rebellion and hostility were violent against heaven. The unfallen worlds had expected to see God sweep away the inhabitants of earth. And if He had done this, Satan was ready to carry out his plan to gain the allegiance of heavenly beings. He had claimed that the principles of God’s government make forgiveness impossible. If the world had been destroyed, he would have blamed God and spread his rebellion to the worlds above.HH 15.3

    But instead of destroying the world, God sent His Son to save it. He provided a way for its recovery. “When the fullness of the time” had come, God poured on the world a flood of healing grace that would never be obstructed or withdrawn till the plan of salvation would be fulfilled. Jesus came to restore in us the image of our Maker, to expel the demons that had controlled the will, to lift us up from the dust, and to reshape the marred character into the likeness of His divine character.HH 15.4
