We should not be afraid to face what’s coming upon this earth. Jesus was kind to warn us of the things that will be coming upon the earth. The day is soon coming when there will be a ‘paradigm shift’ in life as we know it today. Jesus says:
“For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet” (Matthew 24:6–7).
For those of us alive when this time of sorrows begins, life as it was will be turned completely upside down, and as a result, some people may lose hope and believe that life is over. Many people will long for the days when life was normal. But, “say not thou, ‘What is the cause that the former days were better than these?’ For thou dost not inquire wisely concerning this” (Ecclesiastes 7:10). Jesus made it very clear and said, “These things must come to pass” (Luke 21:9) before the end of the world.
Do not lose hope; keep faithful to the end.
“Many sorrows shall be to the wicked: but he that trusteth in the LORD, mercy shall compass him about. Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart” (Psalm 32:10–11).
