I’m writing this, because a dear friend came to me, and told me that she was scared of what was happening in our Country. (I’m writing this From some teachings from Billy Graham. My friend said to me:
“I can’t help but wonder if we’re living in the last days. Do you think we are? There is so much hate, and conflict in the world, so much violence”.
We live in a world that is constantly torn by conflict and chaos and fear. We are in a development of nuclear and biochemical weapons of mass destruction, the world without doubt is the most Dan it has even been. In a Billy Graham speech he stated that Jesus warned that as the end of the present age approaches, in Matthew 24:6-7 Jesus says “You will hear wars and rumors of wars… Nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom.
Jesus cautioned us against trying to predict exactly when He would come again or when the present age would come to an end. (From time to time people have ignored His warning, claiming they knew when Christ was coming-only to be discredited.) At the same time Christ repeatedly promised that some day God will intervene and Christ will come again to rule in perfect justice and peace. No wonder the Bible calls this “the blessed hope-that appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ” (Titus 2:13).
In the midst of our chaotic world, take comfort in the fact that evil will not win, and someday Christ’s victory over evil and in injustice will be complete.
We must take comfort in the fact that when we know Christ (and have a committed our lives to Him), we have hope -hope for our lives right not, and hope for eternity.
Billy Graham stated that he didn’t think he ever had seen such a confused world as right then.
Are We Maybe Living In The Last Days before Jesus Returns?
Jesus did say that the world would grow increasingly confused and Dan before He returns. But when Christ returns, our world will no longer be plagued with confusion and conflict. Because He will rule with perfect justice and peace. It might be difficult for us to imagine- but never forget who Jesus is: the eternal Son of God, who even now rules in Heaven with power and authority.
And He will Rule on Earth. As He does in Heaven.
