Headline: ISIS fighter cries like a baby after being captured by Kurdish forces
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.
In the Old Testament book of Isaiah, we read about the end of Satan’s reign of destruction.
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.”
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.
