Even though the world's going crazy around us, the good news is it's going crazy in a way that was predicted 2,000 years ago. There's really not a lot of variation in what's happening outside our doors from what we were told would happen. So, if you are not a person of Faith, if you do not have that to grab onto and hold onto and to give you reassurance and confidence as we go into these times, let me challenge you to take a look at the Bible, specifically the book of Revelations and the predictions that were made 2,000 years ago by Jesus' apostle, John, when he saw this time in a vision, and take a look at how closely what is happening now resembles what we were told would occur.
If the world were going crazy around me in a random, psychotic way that had no bearing on what the Bible had told me and what our Lord had assured us was going to happen, I frankly would be really scared right now. I'd be asking, "Is this Bible even true?" "Is there really a God?" or is this random chaos that's just going to take us all down in a maelstrom of ugliness.
But instead, because it's happening in precisely the way it was written in the Bible, it gives me faith and courage that the other promises in the Bible are just as true. If the bad stuff is unraveling just the way we were told it was going to unravel, then the good stuff is going to come right after that. We are promised and assured that there will be a time when the Lord will return, He will wipe all of the tears from our eyes, there will be no more death, no more suffering and all of those former bad things will have passed away.
The Lord God is in charge, He is sovereign. I want to remind you that whether you believe this or not, think about the ways that the world is going crazy, we're heading for the Mark of the Beast, we've seen a lot of chaos in the Middle East right where we're told it was going to be happening, we're seeing now the coalescing of global government exactly as we were told it was going to happen; pretty soon we're going to see the coalescing of global religion. As these things come to pass, you need to know there is a sovereign Lord, He is in charge, He saw this coming, and He made provisions for us. He's known about this all along, He's not going to abandon His people.
