Looking at this earth I am amazed at the world wide discord that reigns at this time. We have a major religious drive to overtake the world and create a one world religion of violence and hatred. We have those who want to create a one world government to have power over every country and all peoples. We have nations where poverty to the point of starvation kills many daily, where sin reigns as children are kidnapped into the slave trade for greed and profit. Women prostitute themselves to feed their children; there are even places where homeless orphans live in city dumps to try and survive. Evil prevails. Is my hope destroyed by all this ugliness? No. I see the treading of the devil throughout these end times and his goal is to capture as many of God’s precious children as he can. The enemy uses all his powers of deceptions and lies to crush vulnerable humans and sift them like wheat, so they will blindly follow him to damnation. But, fear not for there is God! God is almighty and far above satan’s reach; God sent His very own Son to sacrifice Himself to redeem His beloved children. I believe with no doubt that God’s love will cover the earth in victory in the end. But for now He is calling His children who know Him and love Him to be His messengers to the lost ones, to bring His love to them. The time is coming when the enemy will be working even harder to try and force his evil ways on God’s kids; perhaps even you and I could suffer his malevolence. But God!! God is our provider. He will provide whatever we need if we just go to Him. His love is so profound that it will lift up the suffering and give them the strength and courage they need. He can also lead us and guide us as we help others to see and respond to the great heart of the Father. My friends, the future will not be a time of lightness and floating carelessly upon the great waters. It will be a time of testing, and testing makes us stronger. We grow to become warriors for God through these times increasing in boldness and courage.
The test will be Jesus. Accepting Jesus as our Lord and Savior transfers us into His Kingdom; we go out from here as His ambassadors, representing Jesus to people of the worldly kingdoms. As His representatives we carry the authority and power of Jesus Name with us.
My friends, we do not fear to share the Word with others; rather let us bring them into the Kingdom with us. Jesus sends us on voyages out into the world to shine with His love and grace.
Will you bow before the King’s throne and accept your assignment?
