The End of the Beginning or the Beginning of the End? (Friday, January 1, 1999 – New Year’s Day)

As we come to the end of the millennium it is hard not to contrast the beginning of the last one with the ending of this one.

Two thousand years ago we saw the birth of hope for the world in the person of Jesus Christ. And as the religious leaders of that time wisely said, “let the Christians alone. If it is just a cult it will die out, and if Jesus truly was the son of God, then there is nothing we can do to stop the spread of this new religion.”

That was very prophetic and history has shown that indeed, Christianity is as alive today as it was when the stone was rolled from the tomb to reveal a promise kept . . . a risen savior for the world. But where are we now, as a world?

Some scholars believe that we are at the end of the sixth day and the new millennium will usher in the return of Christ to rule the world.

But the lines are clearly being drawn spiritually and the day of deciding to be, hot for Him, or cold against Him, are upon us.

May this year be the year you decide which side of eternity you will be on.

This is Nina May and the Renaissance Women wishing you a thoughtful New Year.
