A year for courage

2009 will for many reasons be a year to remember. With this in mind, it seems fitting that the last night of the year be charachterized by what is known as a “blue moon” – a second full moon in the course of a month. Without a doubt, this somewhat rare occurence will add to the revelry taking place as folks say good bye to the past year and hello to the next.

For those of us watching the prophetic calendar, this past year could be summed up in two words – watchfulness and warning.
When the Waterford Crystal ball at Times Square is dropped at 11:59 p.m. and the count to the new year begins, the old will have been passed in favor of the new. If the motto chosen for this years crystal ball – “let there be courage” – is any indication, the coming year is going to be challenging indeed and more prophetic than its originators may have intended. You can read about this years crystal ball here: ball –

As the last seconds of a year of watchfulness and warning come to a close, I can’t help but think of the words of Jesus when he said, that the “last days” would be “as in the days of Noah”. At some point, the warning ended and the rain began to fall and God closed the door on the ark. Right now, the warning has been sounded and the “door” to the ark is open. It won’t stay that way forever. Jesus is the ark of safety and today is the day of salvation. If you don’t know Him already, I encourage you to do so now, next year may be too late. 2010 may be the year for courage and the door to the ark may be closed.
