Tragedies continue to plague our world. Hatred filled evil ones murder a school full of children. Such vile work of satan brings a great cloud of tremendous sadness covering the earth. I lift those parents and loved ones up asking You Lord for Your comfort to fill them; there is no other that can help such sorrow. For us who see this depraved wickedness, all we can do is go before our mighty God and call upon the divine power of heaven to come against the atrocious belief system that would cause an open door for the devil to possess men to commit such heinous shameful atrocities.
In this black depth of sorrow, there is a light. That light is Jesus. He came to earth to bring us truth and love. He taught us about His Father who holds us dear. Jesus accepted a cruel death Himself to free us from the clutches of satanic hatred. He also gave us the answer and the tools to fight against evil; it’s in the Word.
This season we celebrate Jesus’ birth. Christmas. Quiet joy. Stars shining in a night sky. Moon round and bright reflects the Son’s light. Joyful hymns fill the atmosphere. Angelic voices accent the peace announcing the glorious revelation: Jesus has come. The Light has entered the world. Have you been in church at a “candlelight service” where all the lights are shut off; and in the darkness a candle is lit? Then the flame is passed lighting candles held by each person until light reaches all; and the Light announces Jesus has come and has chased the darkness away. Streets sparkle with reds, greens, whites and blue. Shining trees speak Christmas through windows of many homes. Children’s eyes glow with excitement. Adult hearts are also touched by expectation when we take time once again to choose to celebrate a new birth in our hearts. A new commitment to give You Lord more of us~ our hearts. We’ll spend more time with You, Lord this next year, to construct a new connection in our relationship. Instead of just a snack once a week, You want to feast together each day. Yes Lord, Your Word is a feast and we can join together over Your Word.
As the Body of Christ awakes to the dawn of a new time, a time of recognizing You Lord, a time when the blinders of deceit fall off of eyes, a time when ears are opened to hear the voice of the Spirit~ yes as the Body of Christ wakens to the new dawn of spiritual development, satan’s evil army will be stopped. As the Body understands the power of prayer in the awesome name of Jesus, it shall call down heaven’s authority to flood the earth. Yes, there is a battle between good and evil and it started long ago; but as time comes to a close, it is becoming more intense. We know the end of the story, and righteousness shall be the victor!
Those who have chosen to live for Jesus will be victorious.
Which side will you choose? Have you purposed in your heart to build a deeper relationship with our mighty God?
