And the devil who had deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur
September 11th is always a tough day for our country as well as me personally. I lost a friend in Tower Two on that day, and as I look back a beautiful young life was lost which had so much potential. On that day our whole world changed as passenger planes were used as weapons, waiting at the gate for a plane to come in with a loved one is a thing of the past, and two wars were fought with one still continuing. Terrorism is still an issue as seen by events all over the world.
There are several things which we can hold on to this day. To begin with, I will see my friend again when we are reunited in heaven. What a joyous day that will be. However, there is something else that is critical. What is behind these terrorist attacks that kill or maim is evil pure and simple. While we use weapons of war to defeat the expressions of evil such as attacks, we need to also fight on the spiritual realm. As it says in Ephesians, we need to don the whole armor of God to struggle against evil. However, the good news, the reassuring news, is the battle is already won. Yes, evil is defeated by Jesus, and one day as it says in Revelation, Satan will be thrown into a lake of fire and sulfur. Attacks like 9/11 will be no more, terrorism will be no more, and the victory is ours. Keep something in mind. The most dangerous animals are those who are wounded or backed in a corner. Satan is wounded, backed into a corner, and knows that doom will come. That makes Satan very dangerous, so hold fast to prayer.
My friends, the victory is ours. If you lost a loved one on 9/11 or during the wars after, we are praying for you. However, we do have the final say and the future is ours.
