Word of the Day... June 15, 2013

"Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near."  Luke 21:28 

I had to share this devotion with you from Pastor Greg Laurie.  It moved my heart so very much that I couldn't help but think it would do the same for you.  Jesus is calling us home very soon!!!  I feel it in my bones and I am excited!!!  People get ready Jesus is coming!!

Over the years people have come up with some crazy theories of who they think the Antichrist is. But according to Scripture, the Antichrist cannot emerge until Christians are caught up to meet the Lord in the air.

The Bible says, "For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming" (2 Thessalonians 2:7–8).

Who is restraining evil today? It is the Holy Spirit, working through the church, working through Christians who stand up for what is right, who speak out against evil, who function as light and salt in our culture. Jesus said that as believers, we are the light of the world, and we are the salt of the earth (see Matthew 5:13–14).
