The end times will be markedly shocking and surreal than anyone can imagine; far surpassing the end of a one term president. Saints, let’s sober up. Christians are a good/true news people in a bad/fake news world. There’s too much work in the harvest to do for sulking, stewing, or even to gloating.
God has not given us a spirit of fear or despair, but of power, love, and a sound mind. Stay rooted and anchored in depths that are untouched by passing storms. Live our earthly citizenship by seeking the welfare of the city; for in its welfare, we find our welfare. Multiply and do not decrease.
Do not be deceived by court prophets or listen to their dreams, for they do not have God’s message. God’s word will pierce and divide so every heart is revealed. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.
Remember friends: Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. And let us remember which kingdom we are building. For here we have no lasting nation, but we seek the kingdom that is to come. So, these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.
Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
