The dawn awaits the night. Do not fear as those who have no hope. Faith gives flight to the oppressor’s threats; near you it shall not come. For now the souls of the faithful wait, for the hand of the Lord draws near, which no plan of men can hinder. Stand firm in faith, answer the call as you are beckoned. Do not give ear to that which is not truth. Do not slow in the mud of great deception, for the foot of the saint sinks deeper in hesitation. Pray and uplift – strength and encouragement for the weary. There is no loss. Beyond the horizon you cannot see. Race for its light, and the Dawn will rise to meet you. I AM the Lord of all times, of past and to come. My eyes do not find surprise, and those who follow in faith should not be cast down. Have you not read of the victory? Have you not already seen? Mount upon your steed behind Me. Follow My mighty right arm. Although through darkness, the Son of the Most High shall prevail.
2 Chron 20:5-6 (NIV) – Then Jehoshaphat stood up in the assembly of Judah and Jerusalem at the temple of the Lord in the front of the new courtyard and said: “Lord, the God of our ancestors, are you not the God who is in heaven? You rule over all the kingdoms of the nations. Power and might are in your hand, and no one can withstand you.”
Revelation 19:1-4 (ESV) – After this I heard what sounded like the roar of a great multitude in heaven shouting:
Salvation and glory and power belong to our God,
for true and just are his judgments.
He has condemned the great prostitute
who corrupted the earth by her adulteries.
He has avenged on her the blood of his servants.”
And again they shouted: “Hallelujah! The smoke from her goes up for ever and ever.” The twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God, who was seated on the throne. And they cried: “Amen, Hallelujah!”
Revelation 19:11-17 (ESV) – I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and wages war. His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself. He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God. The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean. Coming out of his mouth is a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. “He will rule them with an iron scepter.” He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty. On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
Bottom Line: We cannot see it, so we have trouble believing it. Our faith is weak, so we hang our heads. This is not where we should be! His Spirit reminds us today, in a loud, clear voice – HE IS THE VICTOR! There is no doubt. His Word tells us that He is King of Kings, yesterday, today, and forever, and his power is unhindered. He has told us beforehand of the great victory to come, and each day draws closer to that glorious day. Saint of the living God, yes, that is you. We are on the winning team! Raise up your heart and head to the truth of God’s Word. Shake the mud from your feet. Grab your sword and mount your horse. The Day of our great and victorious Lord approaches. Lift your voice with all the saints in heaven . . . “Hallelujah!”
