Those of us who were active during the "Reagan Years" renewed a sense of respect and awe at the wide-ranging impact of Ronald Reagan's legacy—shared by friend and foe alike. There were, of course, those who would marginalize the man and denigrate the "beliefs" he held so strongly—but there was absolute agreement that Ronald Reagan was a man of conviction.

What, you may ask, does the political acumen and societal legacy of President Reagan have to do with ICR?

Great Events Bring Great Opposition

Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also (John 15:20).

An oft repeated principle in Scripture is that God's plan and purposes are for an eternal end—the "agents" of His purposes are used His way in His time. Romans 13 is God's "political" mandate—and Ronald Reagan sensed a vision and a place in God's global work that ultimately required several decades to become appreciated. Today, the majority of civilized society honors the "vision" of President Reagan—even though the majority of civilized society's elite fought him bitterly while he was in office.

God's Certain Outcome!

For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry (Habakkuk 2:3).

ICR is sometimes challenged to take a "shortcut" for a more rapid response or less expensive pursuit of information. We are sometimes discouraged by the "slowness" of the work or the apparent "success" of some who seem to be less careful with the Biblical message, but we are more certain of God's victory and desirous of His commendation than we are of anecdotal measures. The "vision" is for the long term—not for immediate gratification. Thanks for sharing with us.
