A WORD FROM THE PREACHER

How Long

 We read these words in Revelation 6:9, 10,”When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain because of the word of God and the testimony they had maintained. They called out in a loud voice, ‘How long, Sovereign Lord, holy and true, until you judge the inhabitants of the earth and avenge our blood?’ Then each of them was given a white robe, and they were told to wait a little longer.”

 2018 is upon us. Will Jesus come this year? We who are spiritually “fine tuned” are watching and praying. We see the escalation of evil in the world, and especially in America, and we are well aware of the final outcome. The word that Peter gave in Acts 2 is the same message for our generation, “Save yourselves from this corrupt generation.” Acts 2:40.

 Indeed there is an all out war against God and against His Son. This is nothing new. For David wrote in Psalm 2:2, ”The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers gather against the Lord and against His Anointed One.” None of the things that are happening in our world are a mystery to the people of God. We have the mind of Christ through the inspired writers. The handwriting on the wall is now on the pages of God’s word.

Like those in Revelation, we too are asking the question,”How long, Sovereign Lord.....” But we know the answer. Like a gentle breeze and a still small voice we hear Him say, “Wait a little longer.” He knows what He is doing. The Great Creator God will end things down here at His appointed time. And like everything else He does, it will be perfect timing. Jesus said in Matthew 24, “As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.”

 Our task is to be ready. Our task is to be about His work, reaching just one more soul. This is why we can’t give up or give in. The Devil is reeking havoc on planet earth. He’s trying to reach one more soul for his company in the “eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.” You and I must stay the course as we enter this new year. We need to pray more, give more, preach more, and serve more. If we will do these things we will be ready “when the trumpet of the Lord shall sound and time shall be no more.” How long? Just a little longer.
