Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God, for true and just are his judgments.
Revelation 19:1–2

Evil judged and utterly destroyed. Forever and ever. Not just in the fairy tale, but in your story. Satan, his armies, and every form of evil are destroyed with a punishment that never ends.

What will it be like to no longer be assaulted? To look in the mirror and hear no accusing thoughts or voices? To be completely free of all temptation and the sabotage of your character—not because you are successfully resisting it in a moment of great resolve, but because it no longer exists? Imagine having the dark clouds lifted between you and your beloved Jesus, that veil that clouds your relationship with him. Imagine when all the physical affliction, emotional torment, abuse—all the evil in this world has vanished.

Oh, the joy you’ll experience when you get to watch with your own eyes the enemy brought down for good, cast into his eternal torment! What hope rises at the thought of a world where the enemy no longer gets to do what he does? To see your loved ones released from their lifelong battles? To be released from your own lifelong battles? The kingdom of death and darkness is forever destroyed.

You long for this day, and you long for it in very particular ways. Someday, it will come.

Think of it—what evils will you no longer have to live with personally? What will this moment mean for you?
