I have really enjoyed the Recommended Reading Plan that we have been doing together as a church during this lockdown. Here is one important passage we have read from Revelation 17:14,
These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful.”
The Bible clearly reveals the great controversy between Christ and Satan. The good news of the Bible is that Christ wins—the Lamb, Jesus Christ, overcomes all the forces of evil.
As Christians, we cannot be content that we are personally “with” the Lamb. We cannot be content that we have a saving relationship with Jesus. We must also be concerned about those who are not with Him, who are not in a saving relationship with Him. Notice what Ellen White says below:
“We are living in the most solemn period of this world’s history. The destiny of earth’s teeming multitudes is about to be decided. Our own future well-being and also the salvation of other souls depend upon the course which we now pursue. We need to be guided by the Spirit of truth. Every follower of Christ should earnestly inquire: “Lord, what wilt Thou have me to do?” We need to humble ourselves before the Lord, with fasting and prayer, and to meditate much upon His word, especially upon the scenes of the judgment. We should now seek a deep and living experience in the things of God. We have not a moment to lose. Events of vital importance are taking place around us; we are on Satan’s enchanted ground. Sleep not, sentinels of God; the foe is lurking near, ready at any moment, should you become lax and drowsy, to spring upon you and make you his prey”.Great Controversy, pg. 601
During these uncertain times of the COVID-19 coronavirus, let’s be faithful to Jesus, and be sure spend time with Him and His Word every day. And let’s also be sure that we are asking the Lord what He wants us to do to share Him with those who don’t know Him. As Mrs. White says, “We have not a moment to lose.”
