Is ISIS something to be feared? I say, no. Neither do I fear either cobras or rattlesnakes. Like poisonous snakes, ISIS fighters are not persons to fear, but persons against whom you should protect yourself.

Read the full story. Play the video to hear this thug cry like a baby as Kurdish warriors haul him away. Link: http://ow.ly/VggVs

In the Old Testament book of Isaiah, we read about the end of Satan’s reign of destruction.

“How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground—mighty though you were against the nations of the world…. Everyone there will stare at you and ask, “Can this be the one who shook the earth and the kingdoms of the world? Can this be the one who destroyed the world and made it into a shambles, who demolished its greatest cities and had no mercy on his prisoners?”” [Isaiah 14:12-17 TLB]

What will bring to an end Satan’s multi-thousand-year rampage of deception, death and destruction? Find the answer to this question in 1 John 3:8 NKJV.

“He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose, the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.”

My Spanish version says it better, using the verb “deshacer“, to undo, to untie, to unmake, rather than “destruir“, to destroy, to demolish.

Jesus who raised Lazarus from the dead can raise you up out of your sinful past. Those whom he redeems he also renews by undoing, unmaking, the old man into a new creature. As it is written, “…if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.”

No doubt you can immediately tell the difference between a used car made to look new and a truly new car never before owned. The differences are unmistakable. Such is the new life in Jesus Christ. Jesus is nearby and ready to answer you, ready and willing to make you into a new creature.
