The news tonight was just too dark. It's getting that way more and more now, to the point where it can become frightening as you consider what is going on in the world and what we may have to experience on this side of the gathering up. Casual conversation these days may involve possibilities of financial collapse, martial law, starvation, brutal warfare, riots, roving gangs, and on and on this list goes. The growing tyranny in the U.S. is palpable right now. I'm sure our brothers and sisters in Europe and the rest of the world are feeling the same thing at this very moment. We are seeing the step-wise march towards a totalitarian form of government which is growing ever so rapidly, and their methods are becoming grossly apparent.
But we have good news and we also have distinct instructions during these very days. Its worth a brief break to consider what really matters while considering these instructions (and comfort):
When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”
(1 Thessalonians 1)
(1 Thessalonians 5)
