The Death of Communism

“Today if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts.” – Hebrews 4:7

I’ll never forget Christmas Day 1991. It’s not a special family memory, but a great day in history. The world watched as the Soviet Union’s leader resigned and the Communist red hammer and sickle flag was lowered for the last time.

Isn’t it interesting that the very government which tried to destroy Christianity for more than seventy years officially ended on Christmas Day? God’s sense of timing is perfect. He must have chuckled on that Christmas. Isn’t that amazing?

My friends, God is in control of all of history. His plans are sure. His timing is perfect — from the birth of His Son, to the end of the Soviet Union on Christmas Day. And one day, in His perfect timing, Jesus will return. The way history is moving, it won’t be long. Let us all be ready for His coming by walking in God’s will every day, through faith in Christ.
