Commentary By: Gordon King
As the world travails against the Islamic State and her allies, the evil continues to escalate on a grand scale. We are a witness to murderous rampages, heinous acts of violence against women and children, and strange and unusual events which are reoccurring, such as buildings exploding, large fires, air plane crashes and near misses. The signs of the times are all around us if we only open our eyes and look!
Civil unrest is now commonplace throughout the world. Protests continue to arise from the East to the West, and the North to the South. National economies are at the brink of collapse. War and threats of war seem to be only increasing in numbers and intensity. The leaders of the world just don’t seem to have a handle on how to solve the worlds problems.
Natural disasters seem to also be on the rise. Earthquakes are swarming in areas around the globe, and in uncommon places. Volcanic activity continues to threaten the lives of many. We continue to see floods, landslides, and severe storms. While other parts of the globe are experiencing a lack of rain and are in a drought. Disease and illness continue to arise and threaten to kill.
With all of the disease, drought, and war, the world food production and fresh water supplies are threatened. There seems to be no end in sight for any of this to slow down in the near future.
Anti-Semitism throughout the world is definitely on the rise. Tension towards the nation of Israel is mounting towards an inevitable war. The threat of nuclear war has never before in our history been higher than it is at this time.
With all of the chaos and calamity in the world today it wouldn’t take much to put the world in a tailspin! One event could cause worldwide disaster on a level never before seen in the history of mankind. Just one crazed leader, one major earthquake, one disastrous meteor! This is now the state of the world in which we live.
The only answer my friends is Jesus Christ! He is the only way to ensure life eternal. Without Him we are doomed to destruction. This is the time for all Christians to stand strong in their faith. To walk with God daily. I see too many so-called Christians living in the world, as if they are a part of the world. This is not how we as Christians are supposed to live our lives. We are to be in the world, not of the world!
What we now see happening in the world today is a warning from God Almighty! A warning to the world, and a warning to Christians! This is the time! The time to follow in the foot steps of our Savior. The time to live as Christ lived. This is not the time to be weak in the faith, to allow the enemy to defeat us. We are to be strong, courageous, and faithful. To shine the light of Jesus through us. To show the world that there is an answer, and that answer is Jesus Christ!
I am telling you all, that we don’t have much time left! Love the Lord God with all of your heart. Love your enemies as Christ loves you. Spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. Worship, Praise, and Honor our God. Live for Him and not for the flesh. Our flesh is weak and of the world, but our spirit is strong and of God. Become more of Jesus and less of yourself. This is what being a true Christian is all about!
Lord God Almighty, Father in heaven, hear my prayers. May You fill Your children with Your Holy Spirit. Give us the wisdom and discernment that we need in these end times. Empower us with the tools we need to overcome the evil in the world. Bring home Your prodigal sons and daughters, enlighten them with the truth. Lead us into Your will and make us more like Your beloved Son, Jesus Christ! In Jesus name I pray, Amen
God bless my friends! Until next time…Maranatha!
