Commentary By: Gordon King
The world is in turmoil with no end in sight! Wars are on the rise as is terrorism. Hunger and starvation is increasing daily. Earthquakes and volcanic eruptions intensify in both numbers and frequency. Civil unrest in the world seems to be growing exponentially.
What is happening in the world today causes many to fear what is to come. What will tomorrow bring? How will this effect me and my family?
Most people in the world turn to false hope and protection. They rely on their 401K and/or Social Security for retirement, that the government will be there for them when they need it, and will protect them from harm. They believe that their homes will always be there to shelter them. That the jobs they’ve had for so many years will continue to provide them with income. Many believe in and worship false gods, their faith and trust rests in them.
But I say, that there is no hope or protection in any of these. The only hope and protection is in the Lord Jesus Christ! He is our hope, our protection, and our salvation. Without Him we are doomed to destruction.
Our homes can be destroyed in an instant. Nothing in this world will last forever, nothing! Our governments can not save us, nor will they always be there to provide for us. Our 401Ks can be wiped out instantaneously! We could lose our jobs at any time. There is no security in any earthly thing or false god.
The only real peace, comfort, and security comes from the only one, true, living God of the Universe. Jehovah! God Almighty! Jesus Christ! Believe it or not.
Our time on this planet is short, and we may even have much less time then we think we do. Our lives could be turned upside down in a moment, in an instant. What would you do then? To whom would you turn? Many fear what is coming around the corner, what lies ahead. With the world in chaos, confusion, and turmoil, who could blame them? But I say, that with the Lord Jesus Christ, there is nothing to fear. For He has given us a spirit of strength, and of peace. He has given us hope and joy, love and understanding.
Place your faith and trust in Him, for He is your creator, your provider, and your savior! Amen
God Bless my friends, until next time!
