In this present day, our life appears to be normal; however, we need to remind ourselves that in the coming end of years of time before Jesus’ return, there will be a period when life as we know it will change in an instant.
Many people will be undoubtedly frightened because “there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken” (Luke 21:25–26).
“And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; And the name of the star is called [WORMWOOD]: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter” (Revelation 8:7-11).
However, those with faith having refuge in the Kingdom of God will not be afraid.
“Thus saith the LORD, [LEARN NOT THE WAY OF THE HEATHEN, AND BE NOT DISMAYED AT THE SIGNS OF HEAVEN]; for the heathen are dismayed at them” (Jeremiah 10:2).
We as God’s elect will not be afraid as the heathen because we have refuge in the Kingdom of God.
“The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted.
The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.
Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah” (Psalm 46:6-7, 10-11).
“Our soul waiteth for the LORD: he is our help and our shield” (Psalm 33:20).
“The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD” (Lamentations 3:25-26).
“Blessed be the LORD for evermore. Amen, and Amen” (psalm 89:52).
