A Cautious Man

"And I Believe In A Promised Land"
Forty years ago today, the day before his assassination forty years ago tomorrow, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. told us that he had seen the promised land -

Well, I don't know what will happen now.
We've got some difficult days ahead.
But it doesn't matter with me now.

Because I've been to the mountaintop.

And I don't mind. Like anybody, I would like to live a long life.
Longevity has its place.
But I'm not concerned about that now. I just want to do God's will.

And He's allowed me to go up to the mountain.

And I've looked over. And I've seen the promised land.

I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people will get to the promised land.

And I'm happy, tonight. I'm not worried about anything. I'm not fearing any man.

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord.

The only question is, can we see it, and if so, how close is it?
