(KJV.) REVELATION 1:17-18
(17) And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:
(18) I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.
WHAT SHALL WE SAY TO THESE THINGS?
Oh LORD! our merciful and gracious Father; have mercy on us, we have gone astray from you, we have walk in ways in which we ought not to walk; gone astray from you, show us the right way back home, that we may dwell peacefully in your presence forevermore. Amen!
In the above text, Apostle John saw a vision of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, fell at his feet in the state of trance; in the vision, Jesus laid his right hand upon him, said unto him; Fear not; I am the first and the last: today, Jesus is saying to humanity, Fear not, my brothers and sisters, believe me, come, have salvation and eternal lives!
Regardless of what is going on around us, let us not fear, worry, have anxieties over evil works of darkness; we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. ref. (Ephesians 6:12); instead of worrying about what we cannot control within our perimeters; let us rather pray fervently, voice our concerns to Jesus Christ, supplicate, intercede for his mercies, liberation from yokes of the enemy; also, beware of his devices, plans to execute, destabilize, cause havocs over the world; watch out for him!
Whether we are in positions of perpetrators or victims; either ways, the enemy can use any soul, believers or unbelievers, at any moment, anywhere on earth, to execute his evil works; therefore, let us be in spirits, pray, plead the blood of Jesus over our lives every day; for, the enemy does not dwell peacefully, but delights in caustic, devasting phenomenon; whenever there is peace on earth, he devises evil from world of darkness, brings calamities to devastate human lives: however, the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through our Father, to the pulling down of the strongholds, casting down imaginations, every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of our Father, bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. (II Cor. 10:4-5); therefore, prayer is the key to solving our problems: let us take our grievances to Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, fight battles with prayers, have victories over the enemy of our souls; for, Jesus Christ died on the cross, resurrected from the dead, overcame the enemy, have the keys of hell and death, rules, reigns forevermore: if we have Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, believe in him, though negative phenomenon will happen on earth, that may devastate lives, we shall not die eternal death, but rather have eternal lives.
Dearly beloved, as believers, we rejoice with those who rejoice, mourn with mourners, devastating events of this world, fall into our beliefs, that we need to rise up, girdle up our loins of prayers, pray for peace of all nations of the world; we cannot overlook what is going on around us, we are soldiers of Christ, on missions to save souls; if the enemy is destroying lives, it falls into our prerogatives, to do something about our troubling world, not with preaching alone, but with prayers as well; we may debate on issues, what to do with evil works of darkness; however, prayer is the key for deliverance from its grids, therefore, let us pray for the victims, as well as perpetrators; that Jesus Christ grants his peace and comforts, and guide our feet through the ways of peace forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!
