Watchman, Tell Me What Is Happening! 

I truly believe that every heart is pondering the situation we are in at the moment. The fear of death has somewhat crippled the love of living. The sad fact is, we are in a fight in which we cannot see the enemy and at any time it can attach itself to any individual. That's the fear in which the world is living today. The silent killer is on the move, all we are told to do is exercise care, isolate and keep your distance.

There is a greater enemy we come face to face with every moment, yet we are not scared of him. When this one attaches himself, he takes away life forevermore. The word of God says, “We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Eph. 6:12). It also reminds us that we have an adversary, which is the devil, who walks about as a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour (1 Pet. 5:8). Him we cannot see because he is spirit.

Exercise care! Isolate yourself from him. Keep your distance. Invite Jesus to take up residence in the heart so that there will be no room for the devil. 

Soon, the darkness will pass and we will see our Lord and King.

God bless.
