He was there – before the formation of the world.  He fell from grace, but God allowed him to walk the earth.  He was there in the garden causing God’s first inhabitants to doubt and be deceived.  His end was predicted in that same place.  He lurked in the shadows when the angels proclaimed the birth of the true Messiah, Son of Man and Son of God.  He watched the boy Jesus study the scriptures and grow in the knowledge of His Father.

He mingled into the crowds as Jesus ministered to the sick, the broken, the needy and the lost.  He laughed when the Savior entered the temple and saw what had become of the holy house of worship.  He entered into the heart of Judas and caused him to betray His Lord.   He was in the midst of the mob that spat upon and threw insults at our Redeemer.

He was the force behind the nails that pierced those precious hands and feet.  He rejoiced as Jesus took His final breath and cried out, “It is finished.” He jumped for joy when they laid the fallen Sin Bearer in the tomb.  He was in the depths of hell when the Conquerer came to crush him.  Sin no longer had control over man.  Jesus had paid the price once for all.

He was there when the stone was rolled away and the risen King appeared to the women.  He cowered at the sight of Him.  It was a light so bright that it  blinded him and diminished his power.

He is in our midst today.  He has invaded our with his last ounce of strength and is intent on deceiving us into doubting once again, but we all know the end of the story.  God wins!



About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
