WARS AND RUMOURS OF WARS, FAMINES, AND PESTILENCES, AND EARTHQUAKES (Matthew 24:6-8).
In recent months, weeks and days, there continues to be much speculation of a coming third world war.
Before Jesus returns on the Last Day there are going to events and circumstances in this world that many people will long for the prior days.
However, Jesus told us that these things must come to pass, saying: “And ye shall hear of [WARS AND RUMOURS OF WARS]: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be [FAMINES, AND PESTILENCES, AND EARTHQUAKES], in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows” (Matthew 24:6-8).
“And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved” (Matthew 10:22).
“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).
“I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; [NOR FOR THE PESTILENCE THAT WALKETH IN DARKNESS; NOR FOR THE DESTRUCTION THAT WASTETH AT NOONDAY].
Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling” (Psalm 91:2-3, 5-6, 9-10).
