Wow, I just finished an intensive study of Revelation 12. Not on purpose, by my final preparation for this mornings message took me there.
I was meditating on verse 12, “Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! For the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.”
This chapter set me ablaze… just thinking about how fast biblical prophecy seems to be unfolding these days!
According to Revelation 12:12, there will be a great increase of demonic activity in the earth as we head out of this Grace Age. The darkness will put up everything it has, evil will surge at God’s people… because he [the devil] knoweth that he hath but a short time.
I don’t want to be a weak Christian. If we are one of the final generations, then we should become the finest generation of Christ followers the universe has ever known. We should train ourselves for intensive opposition, and go forth unfazed by any of it!
2 Peter 3:10-12 But the day of the Lord will come as unexpectedly as a thief. Then the heavens will pass away with a terrible noise, and the very elements themselves will disappear in fire, and the earth and everything on it will be found to deserve judgment. Since everything around us is going to be destroyed like this, what holy and godly lives you should live, looking forward to the day of God and hurrying it along. On that day, he will set the heavens on fire, and the elements will melt away in the flames.
Since this is not my main focus for today, I’ll leave it here for now.
