I find it ironic that, as Revelation attests, the Devil especially likes to grow furious when he knows his time “is short.” Now, please understand, I believe that the Devil is just as much an allegory as some of the other images in the Book of Revelation.

But it is interesting that evil does seem to get out of hand when it knows that it might lose the battle.

For us, we already know the end of the story. We just need to remind ourselves in our baptisms and trusting that things will, in the end, work out.

Evil grows furious, we know, dear God, when it knows its time is short. Encourage me to look only to you, knowing that you are all there is in the end of it all. Amen.
