The days of passive, powerless, apathetic, weak Christianity are being taken over by fierce lovers of God and lovers of people. Love is strong, love is tenacious, love is passionate. It’s about to get loud in the area of love like we have never known before. The love of God for His people will manifest in ways most people have not been taught in church. Jesus’ death on the cross was a death blow to the devil. Jesus literally crushed the enemy and defeated death in His death on the cross. It was not a kum by ya kind of event, it was a cosmic victory on a level very few could see.
The cross was not the beginning, it was the end of an age. The resurrection of Jesus Christ was the beginning of a new age. This new age of human history was marked by a resurrected King. John describes Him in Revelation 1 as dressed as a King, having the authority of a King and the site of Him was so powerful, John fell over like a dead man. This is who Jesus Christ is. He is a mighty warrior, a powerful King, a lover on a level we don’t know how to embrace, and He has stored up wrath against His enemies that He is about to release on them.
The minions of Satan do not deal gently with you. Sickness, disease, depression, divorce, discouragement, disappointment, death, immorality, idolatry, alcoholism, abuse, I could go on, but the enemy is not dealing kindly with you, that is why the Lord does not deal kindly with the enemy. Nahum 1:2 says the Lord reserves His wrath for His enemies. My friends, the fierce love of God, the resurrected King, is coming to deal with your enemies and He is not coming to make a peace agreement with them. We must learn what strong love looks like, for His love for us does not tolerate enemies mistreating us the way they do. Enough is enough!
Nahum 1:8-9 “But with an overflowing flood He will make a complete end of its site, And will pursue His enemies into darkness. Whatever you devise against the LORD, He will make a complete end of it. Distress will not rise up twice.”
