Matthew 24:6-8 says” and ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers’ places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.
It seems like every day we hear about some horrific events. As we sit in our living rooms watching the television we are swamped with terrified news, happening in our communities and around the world. Our hearts become heavy as we hear what has happen. Only to ask ourselves why? The world is currently experiencing a “time of sorrows” Matthew speaks of this time. Other scriptures in the bible calls this the “time of birth pains or travail.”
As Christians we need not to be fearful of what we see and hear in the news. God has said these things will happen before the Second Coming of The Lord Jesus Christ. We are to feel sad for the victims and pray for their families. There are several things we are to do according to God’s word.
* We are to get our house in order not your physical house but your spiritual house. 2 Kings 20:21 says’ Set your house in order, for you shall die; you shall not recover.’”
* We are to pray. 2 Chronicles 7:14, if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. I wonder how much are we praying in our churches for this Country and its leaders?
* We are to witness to every person. Matthew 28:16-20 says’ Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely, I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Our world needs to hear about Jesus, this world needs Him desperately.
There are some people standing up letting their voices be hear. But what message are they giving that will cause the people to turn to Christ? The only change for this world is for man is to repent and turn to God.
Things are not going to get easier in this world folks it’s going to get worst. Don’t take my word for it read your bible. God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. (John 3:16-17)
