Have you noticed the deception and desensitization that is happening right in front us? Do you notice what is happening all around the world these days? Such schemes are tactics of the last days before the return of Christ Jesus! Are you ready?
God has equipped us to live in these days of great expectancy for His return, while false teachers twist truth and their Followers question, “How can they be wrong? Look at their position.” We have pastors teaching from the politically correct Bible. Hollywood Stars are teaching one-world religion concepts. And, we are captivated by the desensitization of the media.
Yet, in the midst of this attempted deception,
“His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us to His own glory and excellence” (2 Peter 1:3 ESV).
Peter continues: “We were eyewitnesses of His majesty. For when He received honor and glory from God the Father and the voice was borne to Him by the Majestic Glory, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased” (2 Peter 1:16-17 ESV).
I may not have been an eyewitness to the birth of Jesus or God’s voice of Majestic Glory when He spoke concerning Jesus, His Son, at His baptism. But, I am eyewitness to my new birth as a Christian and the divine power that God is providing for me to live the Christ-life. I am eyewitness to others lives that only Jesus transforms and makes new. I am eyewitness to His provision, His peace, and His place in and for our family. Therefore, I am an “Eyewitness to His Majesty” in this day and age.
How are you an “Eyewitness to His Majesty” in your life?
Lord, I thank you that you have equipped me with a life of godliness through knowing and experiencing the glory of our Lord. Thank you for my “eyewitness” experiences of your provision, your peace, and your place in my home and family. May I not take for granted the greatness of your birth, life, death, resurrection, and ascension to the Father. Fill me with your divine power to continue to live in the midst of a world that attempts to deceive me. Your return is close and I anticipate it. I give praise and honor to His Majesty!
