Lies and standing firm in Christ
As I began to read this morning, I felt so tired (sleep deprived). I just looked at the window and debated on going back to bed! I asked God to give me a word and I stated, "No, I promised myself that I would be in God's word daily." So, I began reading. 2 Thessalonians is not a very big book, in fact it only has 3 chapters, but something really did come out at me. I know in the past I have read about Christ's coming, I am sure even non Christians have ventured to read it, but it felt like a realization today. Satan will bring up someone to lie to us earthly men. He does this now, but he will actually have a human displaying miracles, signs, and wonders. I imagined right then, that people would fall against God and believe this lie. They will marvel over all his wonders, but we are to remember the TRUTH and stand firm in Christ. Christ will come "from heaven in blazing fire with his powerful angels"(1:7). Why would he go against what he said? HE WOULDN'T. Jesus will destroy the very one who lies and that do not believe in him. We, Christians, will know when the Lord comes back and must remember that until that moment comes Christ has not returned. And when he does, then we will sit with God and worship him all the days of our life.
