He who is the faithful to all these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon!” Amen! Come, Lord Jesus!(Revelation 22:20, NLT)
Is it possible that there are no terrorist attacks in the world? Or no war in Syria, Eastern Ukraine, Middle East, Yemen, etc? Or the focus of the Media’s cameras are shifted to Covid-19? Are there no famine at places?
I gather from the News and world leaders that once this invincible enemy is defeated, there will be normalcy.
Does the normalcy means going back to hear same old news of plane crash, mass shooting, hotels and mall siege, war, road accidents, climate change, seasonal flu, etc.? Like the unseen virus, these kill innocent people and cause pains. The death of innocent people aren’t normal…So if we’re going to return to normalcy and it would mean living with these things happening, then You and I have got to Trust in Someone Stronger and Hope for Something Better.
The Real Invincible Enemy
The invincible enemy we face as human isn’t some virus trying to seek global attention but Satan and his demons. And as long as we live in this body, on this earth, these troubles won’t cease. There will be wars, sicknesses, diseases, terrorist acts, among others. No man can offer lasting solution(s) because so long as your enemy lives, you’re prone to attacks.
Hope on Earth
There’s Hope for you as a child of God. These guys perpetuating evil on earth have already been judged. Satan knows his fate so he will do his worst. God knows that too that’s why Psalm 91:4 says that “He will cover you and completely protect you with His pinions, And under His wings you will find refuge“. The enemy can’t harm you.
Psalm 91 is so TRUE that even Satan (himself) quoted it when he tempted Jesus. Satan knew that “he (God) shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.” (emphasis added). If this wasn’t accurate at Jesus’ time, then Satan would by no means use it. But since it was God’s promise, a decree, and binding, Jesus didn’t refute it but also quoted “You must not test the Lord your God” Matthew 4:7. Satan knows that in times of trouble, Angels would quickly intercept to keep you safe.
Therefore don’t be terrified by the News because God (in Whom you trust) promises about protection is as potent as it was years ago.
Jesus is Coming Again
On earth, we’re covered by His Blood, protected by Angels, and we’ve authority to USE His Name to effect changes but Our confident Hope is that Jesus is Coming Again. The signs are obvious and very soon He would come to get us Home.
When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am.(John 14:3, NLT)
I don’t about you but I am confident that our efforts and sacrifices won’t be in vain when our Lord Jesus comes. I am excited as I write this because we will forever be with Jesus and see our loved once we missed dearly. God has beautiful plan for us so don’t miss out. Jesus Christ Loves You, dearly. Amen
