Think on this! “When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.” He told them this parable: “Look at the fig tree and all the trees. When they sprout leaves, you can see for yourselves and know that summer is near. Even so, when you see these things happening, you know that the kingdom of God is near. … Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.” (Luke 21:28-36)
Pray on this! Gracious heavenly Father, we know that we live, more and have our being at your pleasure. But help us to take seriously the threat of the Islamic Jihadist who would subvert our nation to Shariah law and who would totally annihilate Israel if they could. Greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world. So be pleased to grant us that discernment and power to stand true to your calling. As your Word has told us, “This calls for patient endurance and faithfulness on the part of the saints who obey God’s commandments and remain faithful to Jesus.” Grant us grace to be among the faithful. AMEN!
