There is no doubt that we are in perilous times, the amplified Bible says times hard to deal with. The last days did not start in our life time, they began on the day of Pentecost. They have grown worse and worse with every passing year and the devil is not done yet. The devil is the minister of misery and he is quite good at his temporary self assigned duty. The devil cheers as his subjects live further and further from God, demonstrating a blatant disregard for all things God. I hear people all the time calling for Jesus to come and get us out of this sin laden world.
Mathew 24:14 The Gospel of the Kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations: and then shall the end come.
Jesus is not coming back because the world is in chaos, He will come for us after the Christians proclaim His Word over the whole world. Reinhard Bonnke was able to preach to over seventy-nine million people in his life time, because men like Kenneth Copeland sowed millions of dollars into his ministry. Missionaries and Evangelists are flying all over the world preaching the Gospel, some on their very own air planes. They are desperately working to enlist the world and what do they get? Criticism from other brethren. God gave man air planes to go into all the world, he gave man television to record Gospel meetings and He gave us the internet to give the world access to His Word twenty-four seven. Right on cue the devil found a slew of men who would misuse these gifts for ungodly gain.
John 17:15 I pray not that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil.
Jesus did not run from the devil, He went toe to toe with him and totally defeated him. Now He prays to the Father to leave us in this chaotic world and have dominion over the devil He whipped. The devil can introduce a lot of garbage into our lives, but the only way he can win is if we turn away from our Lord and go back. He can bring illness, lack and even rejection from the brethren but none of these are a victory for the evil one. When a believer stays true to Jesus until the day he takes his last breath, he has the victory Jesus died to give him. Every time a believer goes to heaven the devil is credited with the failure to impart his evil ways.
1 John 5:4 Whosoever is born of God overcomes the world: and this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith.
Faith is simply believing God’s Word to the degree that you order your life to it. We overcome the world with our faith, so the devil’s number one target is our faith in God. If we hold fast to our faith like Job did we cannot be defeated. We are not of this world so we are not participants of the chaos, it is not our portion. Before Jesus left He gave us His peace, not as the world gives. Peace is not the absence of problems, it is the constant continual presence of God. We are not part of this world, we are not part of the chaos.
I want to sow and reap a harvest, but what about the thief?
He will try to steal my seed,
so I must sow in faith.
Jesus said He would give me abundance, and He will rebuke the devourer for me.
I must not walk by my sight,
I walk by what Jesus can see for me.
2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
