As One Goes Up, The Other Goes Down

The Christian Martyrs Last Prayer

Thomas Boston, Works, 2:581:

“Every kingdom has its enemies. There is an irreconcilable war betwixt the devil’s kingdom and Christ’s. It was proclaimed in paradise, Gen. 3:15, “I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed.” It never was, nor will be, taken up by a peace; it must end in the ruin of one of the two. As the one goes up, the other goes down; and the perfection of Christ’s kingdom will be the destruction of the other. No wonder, then, that all the King’s children cry, Thy kingdom come.”
