The Evil Before the Millennium
Today I read Zechariah 8 which tells of the redemption of Israel and the rebuilding of Jerusalem in the last days. My favorite verse in this chapter was actually the very last one where it says in the last days that people will grab hold of the Jews and state that they know God is with them. It reminds me a lot of the prophecies of Isaiah concerning the last days. The more I read about them, the less I want to be around for them. However, it will also be a wonderful time because it will be when the Savior ushers in a new era of peace and prosperity. A time when the devil will be captive and none will give ear to his whisperings. But for every spiritual experience that occurs there is an equal temptation. So for us to have the ultimate spiritual experience, we have to have the ultimate lack of spirit either before or after. There must be opposites in everything. So we have to pass through the evil to get to the good in this case. But it will definitely be worth it. Until tomorrow.
