Revelation 12:7-12 lets us know that Satan knows. And Satan “knows that he has a short time.”
“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony,
and they did not love their lives to the death.
Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time.”
– Revelation 12:7-12
Creator God is at work
Our God of the Ages is not wamby-pamby wobbly at all. He is extreme to the inth! He has done things His Way all the way down through the eons. Do you think this Great Omniscient Creator will submit His plans to your vagaries for your approval?
