Borrowed Truths

Abiding Comfort

It is time to prepare yourself to accept the truth, nearly every single person on this planet is going to die someday, you included, the Lord is preparing to perform a deed that is beyond the comprehension of man.

My wonderful wife and I watch very little of the news, just enough to gather logical information, and most generally it is centered on reliable Christian resources, one can quite easily get caught up in all the hype, and personally I do not know how the lost are handling it. It is in the second week of August, 2020 that I pen this letter, and fear is running rampant, it is literally being forced upon all who will but listen, tragedy is assured, yet they still have time for several commercials in a row. Many there are on social media, another venue we shy away from, that are proclaiming that God has visited them and given them special revelations. “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 21:26) “For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.” (Matt. 24:5) “For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.” (Matt. 24:24)

Keeping your “head on your shoulders” will not do it, only remaining submissive to the will and Word of God will. You may pray more fervently if you like, the Lord loves to hear our words, but beware even of your prayer life, this planet is not our home, and in distressing times many believers prayers tend to become just a little too self-centered, they begin to forget that we are and always have been safe in His hands, “Thy will be done” should always remain at the top of your prayer list.

The world is an extremely evil place, it is just reiterating that fact in these days, ask any first century Christian, ask those who suffered under the hand of the Roman Catholic institution during the torturous time of the Crusades, ask the children of Jacob during the Holocaust, pain and suffering is approaching rapidly. So what are we to do, we are to stand, (Eph. 6:13) we are to occupy, (Luke 19:13) we are to rejoice, for our redemption draws nigh, (Luke 21:28) we are to comfort each other with these words. If you will but search diligently, you will see that the hand of Almighty God is moving much stronger around the planet than the deception of Satan is, the wisdom of the world is being shown to the born-again believers who will but look to be what is always has been, foolishness. (1 Cor. 3:19) Hundreds of millions are being led straight to the mouth of hell, and many there are that are willing to assist in this evil endeavor, but to quote a line from one of our favorite movies, “he does not share power.”

They are being deceived, some unbeknownst to themselves, others willingly, the final shift in power is approaching rapidly, we are to have no fear, we are not to be anxious, we are to rise early in the morning and seek His face, (Psalm 63:1) ask for His grace and mercy, and get on about our business of serving Him in whatever way he chooses. Every opportunity must be availed to reach the lost, both those you meet on the street, and the ones you meet in your church. The conversations will of course revolve around the events that are occurring, and you must be able to counter them with the truth, but every conversation must lead to Christ, our responsibility is not only to warn them of what is approaching, but to lead them to the knowledge of the only One that can save them from it, they may still die, some horribly, they may be raptured, neither case matters, that God is glorified, that the name of Jesus Christ is lifted up, that is our goal, that is our life’s one main work. He holds the future in His hands, our names are written in the palms of His hands, (Isaiah 49:16) we have absolutely nothing to fear.

These days are called surreal by my lovely wife, as by I am sure many others also, but they are also very exciting, for we are that much closer to going home. Pray without ceasing, remain strong and stedfast, we will see many mighty works before we go home, warn with truth all who will listen, but do not forget to invite them to the cross. The more the wicked rise, the more often we should be on our knees, our hope is assured, He is faithful who has promised. “Wherefore comfort one another with these words.” (1 Thess. 4:18)
