Today, we look at a variety of news stories that show just how evil the world is becoming–from the murder of Christians in Pakistan celebrating Easter to grade school children in Colorado being given satanic books to read as homework. Christ truly is our only hope and it starts with the truth of His resurrection.
Every generation of Christians thought theirs might be the generation that witnessed the return of Jesus Christ, but with each passing generation, evil grows, false teachers and false prophets increase, and the world inches closer to annihilation. An objective look at the world around us coupled with a serious study of Biblical prophecy lends credence to a theory that the Lord may indeed be returning soon to claim His people before He judges the world.
Let’s remember to seek first His kingdom and point others to the Risen Lord as we strive to maintain an eternal perspective in a world and culture that is hostile toward Christ and the truth of God’s Word. He is sovereign and no plan of God’s can be thwarted (Job 42:2).
The king’s heart is like channels of water in the hand of the Lord;
He turns it wherever He wishes.
Every man’s way is right in his own eyes,
But the Lord weighs the hearts.
To do righteousness and justice
Is desired by the Lord more than sacrifice.
Haughty eyes and a proud heart,
The lamp of the wicked, is sin. Proverbs 21:1-4
