How long Lord?
How long before you cause this evil world’s sin to cease?
When will we see your Christ’s rule of this world, bringing us much Joy and peace?
As a young man many years ago, a different Nation I did see,
we all sang America the beautiful, my country tis of thee!
Truly our Land was filled with liberty, purchased by great men
of valor who defeated our enemies as the entire world did see.
Morality then was something to uphold, those who did practice sin, never wanted their story told.
Today the Gates of Hell have gone forward, the evil ones, their works we do behold.
Much evil has rushed in like a flood, Satan has offered many pleasures beyond measure, and he has become very bold.
He says; your sins prove you belong to me, a small price I require,
it’s just your soul, a small matter to you I see.
Not everyone is caught in his web of deceit, true Christians will never bow at Satan’s feet.
The judgment of this world and Satan is near, the sign of the Son of man in the sky will appear, the Great Tribulation upon those who hate God will be something great to fear!
Before the Great Tribulation takes place, his Bride the Church, will rise to meet their Savior and King in the skies.
We will live and reign with him in his 1000 year Kingdom on this earth, what a blessing it will be, all because of the new birth!
*He is like a roaring Lion, looking for someone to eat, those without the Lord Jesus, Satan they cannot defeat.
Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. 1-Peter 5:8 NLT.
The “Good News” is Jesus defeated the Prince of this world at the Cross. All those who call upon him through believing will be saved and translated from Satan’s Kingdom to the Kingdom of the Lord Jesus. At the Last Supper the Lord prayed a special prayer for all believers. He asked that they be kept safe by the Father and that the evil one not touch them, both prayers were answered!
“I am no longer in the world; and yet they themselves are in the world, and I come to you. Holy Father, keep them in your name, the name which you have given me, that they may be one even as we are. John 17:11 NASB.
I’m not asking you to take them out of the world, but to keep them safe from the evil one. John 17:15 NLT.
Every believer who comes to Jesus is a gift from the Father as Jesus himself proclaimed!
“All that the Father gives me will come to me, and the one who comes to me I will certainly not cast out. John 6:37 NASB.
