Last night I caught CNBC, as I’m sure many of you did as well, and the program about people surviving the 2012 doomsday disasters.
Survival is the goal, and for some it has become big business.
I know a lot of believers are caught up in one theory or another. Many think they know the prediction of the “End of Days” or even the day of Christ’s return. I choose to believe Jesus Christ when he says, its none of our business. Acts 1: 6-7 Then they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel. And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. He was talking about the day of his return. Or how about the three little words tacked onto the end of this verse.
Ephesians 3:21 Unto him [be] glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen
God could have nick named holy spirit anything. He could’ve called it the “stick of power” or something. But what did he nick name his own gift to mankind? John 15:26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, [even] the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me. So if we can be comforted at anytime we need it the adversary has to continually work to make people “unComfort-able”. In order to offset the workings of God, the adversary introduces, doubt, worry and fear, in that order. Before you know it you are entertaining the thoughts that the end of the world is coming, and you better buy supplies quick. When we know the truth, it can make us free. John 8:32 And ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free. Free of what? Free of anxiety, fear, doubts, worries about life and life after death. We have a right to know what our future holds. And there is great comfort in knowing that God is the one holding it.
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. The adversary is out there stealing people’s hope in the future and in peace. This is a huge opportunity to share the truth of God’s love with them and to rest assured in the comfort of it yourself.
God bless you!
