Are you ready to hunker down & ride out the storm? Daniel warned Belshazzar, "God hath numbered thy kingdom, and finished it" (Daniel 5:26). The kingdom of the Antichrist also is numbered: it has an expiration date! Satan's kingdom is NUMBERED! And he knows it, too: "...the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth he hath but a short time." YES!
I don't know about y'all, but I am SICK of Satan's rule! I am so ready for a regime change! I hate everything he says & everything he does. But the scumbag is a lame duck and he knows it. He's going to try a last ditch effort, not to win, but to make his defeat as costly as possible. The good news is, the clock is running!
We don't have to defeat him, brothers: Jesus already did that!!!! We just have to hang in there & hold on until the clock runs out. Jesus says: "...he that endureth to the end shall be saved" (Matthew 10:22) and, "In your patience possess ye your souls....and when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh." (Luke 21: 19,28)
All we have to do is survive until the kingdom of darkness is destroyed! Don't wimp out, don't back down, don't compromise.....just hold fast unto the end. Did not our Lord promise, "I will be with you even unto the end of this age." ? We don't have to throw a "Hail Mary" pass folks: just take the knee & let the game clock run out!
Have you not read, "...from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days." Daniel 12:11-12)
I tell you, the moment the abomination of desolation sets up, I will be marking my calendar: 1,335 days, 1334, 1333, 1332......that's not even four years, folks! Less time than you spent in High School (only a whole lot more evil). But we can do it! Be encouraged! Satan's kingdom is numbered! He's looking at a 1,000 year prison sentence! I can't wait!
Sure, things suck right now, but "the triumphing of the wicked is short" (Job 20:5) For this Scripture must needs be fulfilled: "The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of His Christ; and He shall reign for ever and ever!" (Revelation 11:15) Yeah!
And I ain't saying it's going to be easy, guys: far from it. But God has promised to give His angels charge over us to keep us in all our ways. This is the time for faith & patience. Even so, Come, Lord Jesus! Peace!
