But he who endures to the end shall be saved.
As the signs of Jesus’ return increase, we have a choice to make. We can be blown about by the calamitous winds or we can choose to anchor our lives in Christ and His Word.
God did not leave us ignorant concerning the dark days to come. Daniel prophesied of an antichrist who will become so powerful that he will dare to challenge the very Prince of princes (Daniel 8:25). He will have complete authority over a one-world government with a one-world economy, and a one-world religion, executing anyone who opposes him.
Jesus foretold a time of tribulation that has never been witnessed since the world began. Unless those days are shortened, no human will survive (Matthew 24:21-22).
As we perceive the signs of His appearing, our world grows increasingly fearful, running to and fro, accumulating knowledge in hopes of curing the ills of this current age.
Instead of being overwhelmed by confusion and dread, we must make a decision to abide in Jesus. We must hide our lives in Him, so that we are not shaken. We must study to have discerning eyes and ears. We must not only be people who hear His Word, but those who perform it – even in a culture that refuses to recognize Him. Sticking with Jesus to the end will save us!
May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit (Romans 15:13)!
