The first day of December in the year of our LORD 2020.
Does it seem as unreal to you as it does to me? I remember the approach of 2000. We thought the world was coming to an end as we knew it. It didn’t. I am grateful.
2020 has been more challenging than the clock ticking from 1999 to 2000. It is not an understatement to say 2020 gave us a worldwide event.
Perhaps arguably the first time in history the whole world was affected simultaneously by the same event.
I say arguably because I can think of one other event, I was not there at the time, but I’ve read about it, the Fall of man in the Garden of Eden. That one event made ALL mankind hell-deserving sinners.
And I dare say if not for that Fall, all the evil of 2020 would not be.
But back to First.
As I set to prepare this post for the first day of December, I found a Scripture verse for us to contemplate.
John 20:19 (AMP) 19 So when it was evening on that same day, the first day of the week, though the disciples were [meeting] behind barred doors for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them, and said, “Peace to you.” source
As we set upon this FIRST day of December, the last month of 2020, would we not hear these words of our Savior?
“Peace to you”
HE spoke these words to His disciples hiding out behind barred doors because they were afraid for their lives.
YESHUA came to them.
Barred doors did not impede HIM.
Is there anything that can impede HIM from speaking PEACE to you?
