th“America, you have drowned and there is no savior; you have become prey for the soldiers of the caliphate in every part of the Earth; you are bankrupt, and the signs of your demise are evident to every eye,” the spokesman said, according to a translation by Reuters. “There is no more evidence than the fact that you are being run by an idiot who does not know what Syria or Iraq or Islam is.” (New York Times, Internet)

My friends, I need each of us to focus on the words, “you are bankrupt, and the signs of your demise are evident to every eye.” Bankrupt by definition is “a person unable to satisfy any just claims made upon him or her.” And In-regards to our spiritual debt, the law of justice declares: “the wages of sin is death [separation from God]” “However, the law of love grace and mercy states that “the gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord” Romans 6:23 (KJV)

The part of that statement ISIS got wrong is, “you are being run by an idiot” because the Idiot in this situation is not Trump, but the one who said in His heart 6,000 years ago “I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.” Is. 14:14 (NIV)

My friends, the demise of America and the world begin 2,000 years ago and I  believe, Satan andth all the forces of evil were totally shocked, and amazed when Christ said, “it is finished.” Yes, at the cross was the end of Satan’s reign, because at that point, there was no doubt in Satan’s mind that the picture was complete.

And without any reservation he understood, each Old Testament prophet before Christ were like artist that came along one by one putting their own unique style and stroke on the canvas of this story but none completing the picture until Christ is Crucified, and the final stroke, Christ death, finishes the plan of salvation.

This, is where we get the title for this masterpiece “it is finished.” Up until Christ Death at Calvary Satan felt the picture that was being painted still had him ruler of this world. But now the revelation to mankind “is finished!” And Satan’s fate is sealed.

I can only imagine demons asking Satan, what’s happening as they witness Jesus dying at Calvary. And with no explanation, “Satan’s character is revealed, because up until then Satan had “so hidden himself with duplicity, and deceit that even the holy Angels had not understood the course he took or why.

thThe plan of redemption was completed at Calvary and the character of God was revealed to all mankind, and God’s love and honor is now established. [forever]” (E.G. White) And now God’s children can say with no reservations, Satan, the check you gave mankind came back marked “insufficient funds.”

And it was insufficient because God gave His only begotten Son and a Son who said yes, I will pay the debt  for all who believe. And then at the cross the New Testament prophets started painting on a new canvas with new paint and new and bolder strokes and Christ will also finish this painting titled “a place prepared for the redeemed.” And friends, God’s faithful are in this picture. And no eye has seen, nor ear has heard and no human mind can conceive the last stroke, only those who love God.
