His time is short
Mark 1:24, saying, “ Let us alone! What have we to do with You, Jesus of Nazareth? Did You come to destroy us? I know who You are- the Holy One of God!”
It’s so interesting to see that the Gospel of Mark starts encounters of Christ with an unclean spirit (devil). Our Lord Jesus came to destroy the works of devil and the Gospel of Mark starts his letter with the great ministry. Devil, yeah he is in the world and deceiving the whole world and Jesus destroyed Him on the cross. Now he has short time, working hard to deceive the whole world with his deception.
Very often we forget the fact that we have an enemy and these demons are so real, powerful and they work very hard.
Revelation 12:9 says that, so the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the devil and satan who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth and his angels were cast out with him.
Not only satan (head of demons) cast out but his angels (fellow workers) too, we don’t know how many in numbers but we can experience that, they are much and so powerful in deceiving and destroying the whole world.
We face devils every day of our live and in every moment, even in the ministry, when we go to pray, we acknowledged that people are possessed with demons and we cast them out in the mighty name of Jesus and people are set free in the name of Jesus. Praise God what a powerful name that we have JESUS!!!.
Devil knows his time is very short and he works hard in deceiving people. God only created him, and he was with God once, by his pride and arrogant, he was cast out. Now he knows his time is very short and he wants to be a god of this world as much as he could until the time.
In Matthew Gospel 8:29, we see that, Jesus meets men who possessed with demons, and they cried out saying, “ What have we to do with You, Jesus, You Son of God? Have You come here to torment us BEFORE THE TIME?”
Revelation 12:12, says that, “….For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a SHORT TIME.”
Devil has a very short time and he doesn’t want to have a vacation, he is not sleeping at all, he has no other works except to deceive and destroy, he wants to lead us astray, he doesn’t want you to pray and seek God in all, he doesn’t want you to know the Truth by reading the Bible, he wants you and me to work by our own strength, he wants to reign over our lives by showing worldly things.
If I say in one word, he wants to be a god, he wants to control our lives, he wants us to worship him by doing what he wants us to do.
Just look around the world, what is going on, so much of evils, people could not difference between what is right and wrong. Whatsoever they think, it seems right for them, The Bible is no more in their lives. They just live and follow whatsoever their heart says.
