It is the spiritual conflict, the war waged by spiritual wickedness in high places, the threat posed by principalities and powers which helps us understand and appreciate the past, the present and the times in which we live.
Let us look at the children of our homes and our society. What kind of a future do we want for them? After the Coronavirus clears – what will the world look like? We must earnestly seek God, that he would intervene in grace, that in wrath He would remember to be gracious because where sin abounds grace doth much more abound.
Satan is on the lookout for the best of our youth, he wants their talents and their knowledge for his kingdom. He wants our budding musicians to play and sing the songs of the world, he wants our future authors to write the empty and vulgar stories that fill the best seller lists, he wants our doctors to capitulate to the secular clamour for abortion and transgenderism, he wants our public speakers to address any issue but Christianity, he wants our politicians to conform to the secular mindset that drives society, he wants our scientists to tolerate the evolutionary mind set. To the youth of today I appeal – don’t let Satan have the best that God has given you. He will take you and use you and then your soul will be lost.
If we are faithful servants God promises that through our witness Satan will be not be merely defeated but crushed.
