It's FRIDAY! That means it's time for another 'Five Minute Friday' where as, our hostess, and inspiration, The Gypsy Mama, puts it, we write "For only five short, bold, beautiful minutes. Unscripted and unedited. We just write without worrying if it’s just right or not."
Want to join us? Then be sure and visit The Gypsy Mama today!
Now...for today's assignment...
When I saw the word "roar" I immediately thought of two verses from God's Holy Word...the Bible...
1) "And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring" (Luke 21:25).
2) "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour" (1 Peter 5:8).
Well, we are definitely in a time of great distress among the nations with perplexity. I mean...who seems to have the answers to the problems that plague our own nation, as well as those around the world? Nobody, it seems. (Nobody except God, of course! But who wants to listen to Him? He's too archaic...too old-fashioned...too out-of-date! We're contemporary! Modern! Too intelligent to fall for all that Bible stuff like our ancestors did! Our leaders roar out "CHANGE!" And change is what they'll get!)
And, then, there's the weather! Conditions...some of which...that have never before been recorded...and they're happening around the globe simultaneously...which is what Jesus warned us would be happening as one of the signs of His soon return!
I truly believe that we are in the last days. And what an exciting time it is to be alive! And, of course, as the Church Age winds down, and as Satan's time grows short, he, in an agitated state, is in, indeed, roaming the earth...roaring...seeking whom he may devour. A threat? Yes! But through our faith in the blood of Jesus, spiritual warfare through the power of the Holy Spirit, and our prayers to the Father, we are fully equipped to defeat Satan's schemes against us and to stand firm in the faith...no matter what the days ahead may bring!
Stay the course, my fellow Christian brothers and sisters! The end is not yet! There is still work to do! And as the winds roar, as the seas roar, as the devil roars...stand strong! Stay in the Word and rely fully and completely on our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit which will lead you unto all truth!
