A few days ago Americans received word of a monumental event: Osama Bin Laden has been captured and assassinated. The event was so epic that fans at a Major League Baseball game shifted their attention from the action on the field, abandoned their team loyalties, and cheered “U-S-A” in unison. And, this was just the tip of the iceberg of celebrations. For the next few hours, people across the United States rejoiced because the leader of the 9/11 attacks could not initiated further harm.
Just imagine the celebration that will erupt when John’s prophecy is fulfilled. In Revelation 20:10, he illustrates the seize and demise of Satan, our spiritual enemy. Just think about how often he has frustrated and terrorized you. Think about how he works tirelessly to abort God’s promised blessings. Now, think about seeing him in the lake of fire, where he can’t inflict further harm. Awesome! And we’ll have one reason to celebrate this epic event: Jesus, our Lord and Savior!
Jesus is our spiritual Navy Seal! One day, He will permanently erase Satan, our enemy. Oh, what a celebration that will be! We’ll join the heavenly host and shout, “You are worthy, O Lord our God, to receive glory and honor and power” (Revelation 4:11, NLT).
