From today’s reading...
When they have completed their witnessing, the beast that comes out of the Abyss is going to make war on them and overcome them and kill them.” Revelation 11:7
You were created for war.
In Psalm 144:1b-2 today we read David praising God “who trains my hands for war and my fingers for battle, my faithful love, my bastion, my citadel, my Saviour; I shelter behind him, my shield, he makes the peoples submit to me.”
John reveals to us the fate of the prophets who are killed for staying true to God. But that was not the end for them.
After three and a half days, God breathed life back into them and called them to heaven for all of their enemies to see.
So buckle up, Buttercup.
Train your hands for war, your fingers for battle, your mind for chaos, your body for suffering, and your heart for victory, which is the only way to...
Stay the course.
Keep the faith.
Now go sell something.
