This week I was introduced to another WWII heroine that I’d never heard of before. Sophie Scholl was part of an underground movement called The White Rose. She was eventually caught, interrogated and put on “trial,” and then led almost immediately to her execution. She never faltered, never backed off her stand against the tyranny of the Nazi party, and she went to her execution with calm courage.
There is more persecution of Christians going on all over the world today than we are aware of. Satan’s hatred of God and of all who love Him is unabated since he was tumbled out of heaven. He has never stopped in his efforts to destroy what God loves.
He never will, until he is finally consigned forever to the Lake of Fire. He knows what his end will be, and he wants to take as many souls with him as he can.
I’m in the closing chapters now, on this blog, in the book of Isaiah. Much of it concerns the final reconciling if Israel to God, after so many centuries of their cycle of obedience, disobedience, idolatry, persecution, and restoration.
I’m reading a lot about the Millennial Kingdom, and it’s so exciting! i am thankful to know that those who are believers at the time of the Rapture will not have to go through the horrors of the Tribulation, and that after Armageddon, Satan will be finished. Many, many people will come to Christ during the Tribulation, and will be martyred for their faith. But they will triumph, with Him, in the end.
I have to admit that the longer I live, the more I look forward to that day, when all the troubles and trials will be forever ended and Jesus will be the light of heaven for all eternity.
