It is rather remarkable that we are here now; on this earth at this time.
We are a chosen few to live in these days.
Our world is in famine, war, cultural adversities, and moral decay,
natural disasters gone wild and evil dictators who kill their own people.
Media bias, crime and violence, job loss, sickness, depression, terror,
hate filled protests and a government that believes money
grows only to spread the wealth.
Drugs are running rampant, alcohol abuse, teen pregnancy, no money, bankrupt cities,
divorce at over 50%, infidelity, scandals and a Vegas party in a hot tub using your
hard-earned tax dollars to fund their fun.
Movies and television couldn’t get much worse (or could they)
Christian persecution on the rampage, boycotting chicken and children starving.
Dysfunctional families, wasteful spending, divisions among friends, political fights,
assault on free speech, educational decline, and neighbors who hate cats.
Offenses, overextended expectations, fraudulent government programs,
civil unrest, religious debates, social media frenzy,
and parents who spar at their kids sports events.
There are countries with nuclear weapons, gun control, and assaults on the family,
church attendance decline, movie theater massacres,
and a government who believes in everyone getting their fair share.
Economic collapse, debilitating diseases,
drought, lack of integrity, loss of truth,
healthcare mandates, homosexuality and
a nation that has fallen from grace.
2 Timothy 4:3-4 “For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.”
All is wrong with the world gives precedence to God showing up and showing off.
When you think it can’t get any worse God will perform outlandish miracles,
signs and wonders, and send an army of angels.
Jesus will appear in dreams, cultivate the needy, send shepherds to his worn out flock.
Diseases will disappear, families will re-unite, and crime and violence will be defeated.
Provisions will be dispersed as bread and fish, Tim Tebow’s will be born and the lame will walk.
Hearts will be changed, prisoners freed and the homeless given shelter.
Holocausts will end, dictators will die and addictions will be delivered.
Enemies will become friends, God will go back to schools, and persecutions will diminish.
Marriages will be saved, churches will be filled with the Holy Spirit, and healthcare unnecessary.
Perversions will cease, veils removed and truth will emerge like the rising sun.
Greed will cease to exist and scandals will be written in the sand; justice will be served.
Prejudicial favoritism will be silenced, gardens and farms will flourish with abundance and chauvinistic governments will be removed.
God will blow in like a mighty wind chasing evil out in a word.
We, people are living these days. History repeats itself. Persecution and revival arriving in parallel time.
As Christians are beaten, shut out and deemed intolerant, we also become victorious. In times of hate filled bigotry toward God’s people, the church will rise up acquiring a fresh filling of the Holy Spirit.
As in the past, it is during these miserable eras the lights begin to flicker. Cold hearts melt as Jesus instills his truth. Lost souls are gathered into his fold receiving the wealth of his love.
Acts 17: 26-27 “From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands. God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us.”
If you feel as if the world is caving in, hang on. Realize you were chosen for this time and place specifically by God. Out of all the past generations, you have been selected to live during these last days.
Yes. All is right with the world.
