DECEMBER 21 READING…ISAIAH 32-35 & REVELATION 12
Isaiah speaks of the reality of the coming of the Messiah, who is King, and His kingdom. In Christ’s first coming He came to serve, not to be served. He came as a humble man, who would go to a cursed cross and die there alone for the sins of the world. He is coming again! This time He is coming as King…and He will set up His kingdom. It will be a kingdom of peace…for Jesus is the Prince of Peace. This will be a wonderful time for those who believe and follow the Lord. It will be a horrible time for those who have rejected God. They will see Him, the One they have hated and blasphemed. Sadly, it will be too late for them to repent and believe…they will face their Judge and spend eternity in hell. In Revelation 12, Satan tries one more time to destroy Israel…for if he can, he makes God a liar, and impotent, to keep His covenant. Satan has tried this over and over again…in Genesis 6 when his angels polluted the human genome…in Esther when he used Haman to attempt to destroy all Jews…in Bethlehem when Herod tried to kill Jesus…at the cross…through Hitler in more modern history…and then once again in Revelation. God rescues His people…they are under His protection and Satan cannot touch them. We are also God’s people…and we too, remain under His hand of protection.
