To my Christian friends:
There are troubles all over the world. For those of us in Christ we need not fear:
We are the witnesses of the “Birth Pangs” that is spoken of prior to the rapture. Personally I long for Revelation Chapter 21:1 – “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.” And the last verse: (27) “And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.”

Romans 13:1 tell us “Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.” In 1 Timothy 2:1-2 we are told, “Exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving thanks, be made for all men; For Kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.”

Time is short and will only get worse. This country and the world over is on a downward spiral. When civilizations lose their sense of morals, they all fall. I just pray for the days to be cut short. I read where 54% of Catholics voted liberal (much to the regret of the Bishops who do not condone abortion). Voting¬† is a moral issue for Christians and conservatives. It’s a scary world we live in. We will be leaving a mess to our kids and grand kids that they may never clean up. But as Christians our hope is not in this world. We have a heavenly home and await our King Jesus. We need not fear. I pray for our country and the world over. I pray for Jesus to cut the days short and come soon!
