Welcome To The Mid-Week Monday

No, no, no, one Monday per week is plenty, sometimes more than enough. Some might think that God is not concerned with the days of the week. I'm not sure where that would come from as a quick read through His word would show that from the Creation to the Revelation He is quite concerned with days. In fact, at the end of things, there is this note:

Then the sixth angel sounded: And I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.” So the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released to kill a third of mankind. (Rev 9:13-15)

It may be hard to see it for that ending, one third of us gone is a bit much to grasp on a Wednesday... or a Monday or any other day. However, this does show that God is quite aware of the days; this prophecy even has an hour on the calendar date. This may speak to the swiftness of this particular plague of death. After all these four angels have a little help, if one can call two hundred million horsemen a 'little help'. So, when one of our electronic devices reminds us, "Time and date not set," we can remind it of this verse from the Revelation. But, we don't want to end this on such a terrible note.

There is one more time and date that is set, and only God the Father knows it. Yes, our Lord Jesus will return for us, and that event has a special time and day set by the Almighty!

The days are dark but our redemption draws near!
