These Days

Can evil become any more evil?  When you think the worst of the worst could happen, you recover from one tragedy, here comes another.

Have you ever wondered, Lord where are you?  How can you allow such a murderous actions to happen to your Children? in Your house of worship?!

What about the passing of laws that contradict God's institution of Marriage?

I would say these are fair questions that we should not be afraid, or shy away to ask our King.

One thing we need to remember is that there is a Battle taking place between Good and Evil. The excerpt below from The Great Controversy by Ellen White offers some helpful insight on what is taking place today and why...

The great controversy between good and evil will increase in intensity to the very close of time. In all ages the wrath of Satan has been manifested against the church of Christ; and God has bestowed His grace and Spirit upon His people to strengthen them to stand against the power of the evil one. When the apostles of Christ were to bear His gospel to the world and to record it for all future ages, they were especially endowed with the enlightenment of the Spirit. But as the church approaches her final deliverance, Satan is to work with greater power. He comes down "having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time." Revelation 12:12. He will work "with all power and signs and lying wonders." 2 Thessalonians 2:9. For six thousand years that mastermind that once was highest among the angels of God has been wholly bent to the work of deception and ruin. And all the depths of satanic skill and subtlety acquired, all the cruelty developed, during these struggles of the ages, will be brought to bear against God's people in the final conflict. And in this time of peril the followers of Christ are to bear to the world the warning of the Lord's second advent; and a people are to be prepared to stand before Him at His coming, "without spot, and blameless." 2 Peter 3:14. At this time the special endowment of divine grace and power is not less needful to the church than in apostolic days.  Through the illumination of the Holy Spirit, the scenes of the long-continued conflict between good and evil have been opened to the writer of these pages. From time to time I have been permitted to behold the working, in different ages, of the great controversy between Christ, the Prince of life, the Author of our salvation, and Satan, the prince of evil, the author of sin, the first transgressor of God's holy law. Satan's enmity against Christ has been manifested against His followers.

Prayer: Lord have mercy on our souls. We desire to draw closer to you to get to know you and your word more than ever before; we recognize there are bold distractions and subtle distractions. We recognize evil, we recognize deficit in morality and blatant disregard for your instructions and commands in our World.  We ask that you be our guide as we aspire to live your way, we ask that you keep us grounded and focused.  Let your testimonies and praise never cease from our lips. Protect us from all Evil and save us in your Kingdom as you have promised when you come is my prayer in Jesus name. Amen.


  1. Amen. I don't even know what to say. This year has been really dark. Did you take note of how many planes have crashed between last week and this week? Over 5, which is not normal. Sex changes, threats to the marriage institution, etc. God help me to be strong in a time like this.

    1. God help us....signs of the times are telling every where

  2. This post mirrors what I've been thinking about lately.
    That prayer is so needed. Amen.

    1. Yeah, it's interesting times we are living. So important to be grounded and anchored in God.

  3. In this time more than ever before, God needs sons of His who will stand and shine forth His light in the darkness.
    Not wavering but staying secure in Him.
    The darkness will advance but it can never thrive.
    Why? Because the darkness will never comprehend the light. One light overshadows it!
    I pray for grace for us all to indeed shine as lights in this crooked world and never lose our taste as salt of the earth in Jesus name, amen

    1. We are the light of the world. We are differnt and we stand out. Lets keep praying and witnessing for God.

  4. I'm just reading this now- I suppose every Christian is beginning to realise that the waging war has begun.
    Like Ati, I'm praying God to keep me strong and focused on what matters in these times.
