Then the end will come, when he hands over the kingdom to God the Father after he has destroyed all dominion, authority and power. 1st Corinthians 15:24 NIV
By the fireplace, a couple had a porcelain cat. This figure had been with them for a long time, but one day it got possessed. Strange things and strange sounds began haunting their living room. The eyes of the porcelain cat would watch them and a presence could be felt. The phenomenon continued until a Christian came to their house and prayed over the statue. Then the strange occurrences ceased. They never had any more trouble after that. Visitors were terrified at the thought of other dominions and hearing a trustworthy, first-hand account. Have we ever been faced with what goes on spiritual realms around us?
We resist the thought of things unseen. We make light of eerie subjects. Yet the Bible talks a lot about dark forces that would overcome us if they can. Scriptures teach us there is much going on in realms that we cannot see. But Christ has conquered over darkness. Jesus paid a heavy price to win a battle that we cannot begin to conceive. Authority and power are now His! We can be afraid, but our fear should be over whether or not we are found by the side of the One Who has paid the price for our souls! Can we sense a healthy fear? Are we nudging closer each day to the One Who will make all the unseen dangers go away?
Dear God the Father,
Let us come closer still! Draw us so near to our Savior that we will be safely delivered one day into Your arms, we pray!
