We are on the winning side!

Do you ever feel a little overwhelmed when you listen to all the bad news on television these days? It's enough to discourage anyone to hear over and over again only bad stuff!!! It makes you wonder sometimes if Satan, the old devil, the prince of the power of the air, is getting the upper hand here on earth! It seems as if he's gaining more control and is working harder to bring disaster and ruin in the world around us. Violence and crime is rampant, criminals are getting younger and younger and we wonder what is happening with our children! Natural disasters, such as tsunamis, earthquakes, fires, storms, hurricanes, are getting larger and more intense in nature and happening more frequently. Terrorism is still a threat over our heads, and wars and rumors of wars are constantly breaking out. Is Satan winning????

ABSOLUTELY NOT!!! Satan is a mere prince---yes, with limited power here on earth, but only because the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, our Lord God Almighty has allowed him freedom for a little while to do his dirty deeds. One day God is going to say enough is enough!!! Satan will see his fiery end forever and ever.

In the meantime, we as Christians who know the King of Kings and Lord of Lords are to sing praises to God and give him the glory due his wonderful name, proclaim God's love to the lost, and serve him faithfully until complete and final victory is won!

"Because of the Lord's great love, we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him. The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him, it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord." Lam 3:22-26

"we are not to be alarmed-such things must happen, but the end is still to come" (Matt. 24:6)

"All the ends of the earth will see the salvation of our God" (Isaiah 5:52-10b)

Yes, we are on the winning side! Satan's doom is final! Victory is ours through our Lord Jesus Christ!
