Commentary By: Gordon King
As the world becomes even darker by the day the signs of the return of Jesus Christ become more apparent and visible. As the darkness approaches and seems to overtake us then we know that the Lord is near, that He is even at the door!
We can see the darkness if we open our eyes, we can see evil manifesting itself into our world, into the lives of everyone living on planet earth. And it’s not only unbelievers who have this darkness in their lives but believers as well. And I would say that this darkness is more than likely manifesting itself into the lives of believers probably more than in the lives of unbelievers!
Satan and his minions are out to steal, kill, and destroy! That is their mission, that is their plan, to destroy the workings of God Almighty! They will attempt to steal your happiness, to destroy your life, and to kill you if God would give them the chance. But it can only happen if God allows them to do it, they cannot do what the Lord will not allow them to. Just as with Job, God allowed Satan to destroy his life, but not to take his life.
And this is where we are today in the world, Satan and his minions are out to do no good, we can see it manifesting in the physical, we can see it in the world and in our own lives.
The world is turning more and more against God each day, this is the plan of the evil one. But do not be alarmed, for this is also a part of God’s plan. Those with hardened hearts will become even harder, and those against God will turn even further away from God, for God will give them what they ask for!
We see the world headed towards the union of oneness, a unity of the world, just as it was during the days of Nimrod and the Tower of Babel. And we all know what happened then, God confused the people with different languages and scattered the people. But that’s not what is about to happen now, no, instead God will have had enough of this evil and wickedness and pour out His wrath upon an evil and wicked unbelieving world. It’s coming and it’s close, it’s coming to fruition!
The closeness of all of these things is at a precipice, and we should not be alarmed but take joy in knowing that the closeness of Christ’s return for the church is at the door!
I pray that the good Lord takes what Satan has meant for evil and turns it into good! I pray for the light to shine in the darkness, for those that have been blinded will have eyes to see, and that many shall come to repentance and accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior! In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
