BIBLE READING: ISAIAH 60:2; PSALM 91; PRO.18:10; REV. 12:11
And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine. Revelation 6:6(KJV).
In these last days, there is going to be an increase of hostile events that are inevitable as prophesied in the Bible: political turmoil, economic unsettlement, redefinition of terms, experimentation with social norms, changes in the status quo, global governance agenda, outbreak of epidemics and the list goes on.
The world is experiencing unrest more than ever at different spheres of human endeavours. As a result, hopelessness, doubt, and fear, have gripped the land. Many people, including some believers no longer believe in God and in the saving power of His Word; but only those who do know their God shall be strong and do exploits.
In all of these however, it is paramount to note that we are not left unprotected. There is an insurance scheme from Heaven for all of God’s people, a strong security that exempts us from being victims and makes us untouchable.
There is a directive and injunction to hell and all of its cohorts that pioneer these activities to hurt none of God’s elect as seen in our key text; “…hurt not the oil and the wine” is the specific instruction given to the devil(Rev. 6:6).
The “Oil” represents God’s anointed, while the “Wine” represents those redeemed by the blood of Jesus. And these two groups of people are believers. Thus, as a child of God, you are covered; there is no cause for alarm.
Just know that in Christ, you are secure from the programmes of the adversary and enforce your authority. Be rest assured that you are in a place of safety because of the Blood of Jesus, and the Name of Jesus as you abide in Christ.
There is no better time to be in Christ than now, for that is the only sure way to avert the inevitable evil of these last days.
Father, I thank You for writing my name in the book of life from where I am named a beneficiary of Your love, and security in these last days. I am grateful Lord. I pray for those who are still outside of Your eternal protection to receive the light of Your saving grace today as we go out to reach them in Jesus name. Amen.
