As we approach the end of a very challenging year on all fronts… physically, politically, economically, socially, spiritually and morally; there is a temptation to default to anxiety and despair! Don’t do it! If you are a follower of Jesus Christ there is HOPE! Hope, not by the definition of the broader pagan culture, but hope by the Bible’s definition… “Confident expectation in God’s promises and character!” Regardless of what the evening news (even the breaking news) reports God is in control!.
Glad I had “coffee with the Lord” this morning! I read His report on the matter this morning in the last book of the Bible… and I wrote these words in the margin: “TWO GREAT VERSES I NEVER WANT TO FORGET! God’s great, monumental and universal victory over all!”
The two verses? Here they are… Believe me, worth memorizing and displaying in your home….
“The kingdoms of this world will become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ, AND HE SHALL REIGN FOREVER AND EVER!” (Revelation 11:15)
“The devil will be cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast [the antichrist] and the false prophet are. AND THEY WILL BE TORMENTED DAY AND NIGHT FOREVER AND EVER!” Revelation 20:10
My response? HALLELUJAH!!!
