You do know that April 15 has been postponed to April 18, right? (It would have been interesting to see if a government shutdown would have included the IRS–but I suppose they just might be considered “essential” personnel!) Anyway…April 15, 2011 is a Friday, so why the change? Silly me for asking–it’s Emancipation Day on the 16th…well, at least in D.C. Thank you, Abraham Lincoln! Of course, I am looking for that great Emancipation Day when the IRS is abolished and there are no more income taxes. Hallelujah! It could happen! But wait, there is an even better “Emancipation Day” coming when everything will be made right. We will be completely freed from all things bad, sinful, tempting, and unjust. FREE AT LAST! On that great day, the Day of the Lord, all things will become new:

2 Peter 3:10-13 — But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a roar and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat, and the earth and its works will be burned up. Since all these things are to be destroyed in this way, what sort of people ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness,  looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be destroyed by burning, and the elements will melt with intense heat! But according to His promise we are looking for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness dwells.

Sounds awesome and terrifying, eh? Yes, but sin and all of its effects will be eradicated and we will not only be free of sin’s penalty and power, but from sin’s very presence. Granted, there are more “sinful” things than the IRS, slavery being one of them, but the greatest slavery on earth still occurs in every nation of the world. Apart from Jesus, all mankind is a slave to sin. Thanks be to God we are free at last awaiting that greatest Emancipation Day! I suppose I can put up with unjust taxes until then.
