It’s Halloween so it’s seems appropriate to write something about mummies, the undead and demons. And although I am tempted to write something about The Walking Dead, which I must say I started watching this week so I could understand what it was about, I probably should leave that for another time.
So how about some mummies,
14 So he told them plainly, “Lazarus is dead
40 Jesus responded, “Didn’t I tell you that you would see God’s glory if you believe?” 41 So they rolled the stone aside. Then Jesus looked up to heaven and said, “Father, thank you for hearing me. 42 You always hear me, but I said it out loud for the sake of all these people standing here, so that they will believe you sent me.” 43 Then Jesus shouted, “Lazarus, come out!” 44 And the dead man came out, his hands and feet bound in graveclothes, his face wrapped in a headcloth. Jesus told them, “Unwrap him and let him go!” Luke 11 (NLT)
50 Then Jesus shouted out again, and he released his spirit. 51 At that moment the curtain in the sanctuary of the Temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. The earth shook, rocks split apart, 52 and tombs opened. The bodies of many godly men and women who had died were raised from the dead. Matthew 27 (NLT)
19 You say you have faith, for you believe that there is one God. Good for you! Even the demons believe this, and they tremble in terror James 2:19 New Living Translation (NLT)
Wow, it’s pretty amazing that we follow a God that is in complete control of all of those things that we fear and use to symbolize the darkness. That’s actually more than amazing, it’s just plain awesome!
Enjoy the fun of Halloween, but remember the reality of the darkness, and the power that God and his Son have over that darkness – and maybe pick a side!
