WORLD HISTORY

 
"The time the Israelites had stayed in Egypt was four hundred and thirty years." —Exodus 12:40
 

The book of Exodus describes millions of people being liberated from a slavery entrenched in their society for four-hundred and thirty years. Do you believe God can set millions free today? Do you believe He can unite Christ's body fragmented for hundreds of years? Do you believe in mass conversions? Do you believe strongholds of the evil one, entrenched for centuries, can come tumbling down?

God has always been able to effect a monumental liberation of the masses. He has done it in our lifetimes in Africa, Korea, the Philippines, and in parts of South America and Eastern Europe. You may not have heard about it, because He proclaims justice and justification in a gentle, quiet way, without contending or crying out (Mt 12:19). Nonetheless, it is happening.

Inevitably and irreversibly there is a movement that every knee bend and tongue proclaim: "Jesus Christ is Lord" (Phil 2:11). The only question is: Will we eliminate ourselves or be a part of the fulfillment of world history?

 
Prayer: Jesus, I accept You as Lord, God, and the Meaning of life. Thank You for letting me give my life to You.
Promise: "Here is My Servant Whom I have chosen, My Loved One in Whom I delight. I will endow Him with My Spirit and He will proclaim justice." —Mt 12:18
Praise: St. Lawrence led the Christian army to victory carrying high a crucifix.
