Evil Is Already Conquered
Proverbs 24:19-20 (KJB) Fret not thyself because of evil men, neither be thou envious at the wicked; 20 For there shall be no reward to the evil man; the candle of the wicked shall be put out.
It is easy to get caught up in the array of evil forces at work in this world. It often may seem as if these dark forces are given the best opportunities and ultimately a winning hand. It may seem as if evil is gaining while the goodness of God is dwindling away to oblivion.
It is easy for mankind to be jealous of those who serve evil, to admire their seemingly entertaining lifestyle, to desire to have their endless stream of prosperity, and to precipitously throw away any attempts at righteous living.
All it takes it one forward view of the hope in eternity to know there is both an actual heaven and hell. It is coming to the realization that God has been and always will be in control both on this earth and for all eternity. Even when it seems that all spiritual means have been exhausted and that evil from the god of this world will reign one only needs to review a few uplifting verses of many in the cannon scripture including 1 Corinthians 15:57, Romans 8:31, and Romans 8:39 to gain his eternal “spiritual composure” leaning wholly upon the inexhaustive presence and power of God and count on His ability to blow out the wick of all wickedness working in this world.
