The Message

“God did not intervene in salvation until Israel was desperate.

We are repeatedly moved to ask why God should be, humanly speaking, so slow in acting. The answer is not, as is so often suggested, that God’s time-scale is different than ours, though this is true enough.

It is that He must always first bring man to an end of himself and his hopes.”

– H.L. Ellison. “The God Who Acts”.  The Message of the Old Testament p33
