Spring Is In The Air
February 28-March 6, 2021 – Milton Dalida
Spring is soon approaching. Students will be having spring break. It’s time for spring cleaning to tidy up the house, get rid of the old, and bring in the new. Nature will be blooming soon and the weather will change from the cold of the winter season to the cool/warm temperatures. Families and friends will come out to fellowship and partake in the various outdoor activities. Ah, yes, springtime!
I can only imagine how perfect heaven is, and will be for me. But, there was a time of a “cold winter season” when Lucifer’s pride betrayed the heavenly Host and deceived his fellow angels (Revelation 12:9; Isaiah 14:12-15). That must have been a sad time for Jesus and His heavenly angels. That event led to the “Fall of Man”. (Genesis 3) Not only was Jesus’s heart heavy with the fall of Lucifer and a third of the angels, He was distraught that His creation on earth was also tainted with Satan’s deception.
Fortunately, heaven is still a perfect place. And His creation on earth will once again be renewed “in the spring” when Jesus comes again. (Revelation 5:1-7) His death on the cross rid us of the “old” sin stained clothing to give us His “new” perfect white robe in it’s place. When Jesus comes again spring cleaning will take place. The righteous dead will be resurrected and the righteous living will meet Jesus in the clouds while the wicked will become no more. (John 11:25-26; Revelation 20) I can’t wait to live in the new heaven and new earth. (Revelation 21:1-8)
Do you need a spring cleaning in your life? Get rid of the old junk of this world and prepare for the renewing of your hearts for the Holy Spirit to dwell in you. (1 Corinthians 6:19-20) Don’t remain in the spiritual cold winter that Satan has brought you. It’s time to get up, buckle up, and enjoy life’s journey towards eternity with Jesus. Can you feel it? Spring is in the air!
