Memorize: For he saith, i have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have i succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation: 2 Corinthians 6:2.
Devotional Reading: Revelation 12: 1 – 17
Growing up as a child; I heard people push forward the day of salvation to a time when it is convenient and when they are much older, they want to taste life and enjoy what the world can offer them. Many have continued in this attitude to the point where they are now indifferent to the signs and warnings around us about the end time.
The devil is a mastermind, he knows his game very well, while causing distractions for many; he made them procrastinate about giving their lives to Christ, Satan doubled his effort knowing that he has a very little time.
In olympic games that are played for a set number of minutes, like basketball and football, the closer the clock gets to the final seconds, the more intense the play becomes. In fact, coaches practice plays to use when time has almost expired. Immediately increases intensity in athletics, same in spiritual warfare.
The world may never have been in more dire strait than it is now. Revelation 12:12 tells us that the devil “knows that he has (but) a short time” left to disrupt God’s plans on earth.
It should come as no surprise that the closer we get to the end of the age and the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, the more Satan will increase his activity. Wars, discord, disease, strife, immorality, and more, these are the works of Satan.
But what Jesus started when He came the first time, destroying the works of the devil, will be concluded when He comes again.
The great hope of the Christian is that one day we, and the world, will be free from the attacks of God’s enemy. Satan knows the clock is ticking and that he will one day be removed forever, Revelation 20:10.
If you have not given your life to Christ, don’t procrastinate anymore, today is the day of Salvation; tomorrow may be too late. May the LORD help you in Jesus name.
Prayer point: Father, please help me stop procrastinating in Jesus name.
Key dose: Tomorrow is uncertain; so, use today.
