When your faith is tried, there is always a greater blessing on the other side of it. Or you may say, when adverse conditions arise, and we trust in the will of the Sovereign Lord, knowing without a doubt that He has allowed or brought upon us these circumstances for the reason of His love for us and His glory, on the other side of it there are blessings we could not beforehand even imagine.

“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” (John 14:27)

My lovely wife recently saw the crime statistics for a large city we once visited, nearly two times higher than just the few short years ago when we were there. These numbers are similar all across this country, and in many other parts of the world. Iniquity my friends is abounding exponentially.

When the Lord Jesus Christ walked among men, many thought that He had come to set Israel free from the bondage of Rome, just as they knew the Almighty had done for them in Egypt after four hundred years of hard bondage, but it got worse, and in seventy AD Israel was scattered across the planet. What we are witnessing is going to get worse, much worse, but I do not believe that many Christians fully understand this or will accept it, nor are they prepared to have their faith tested in this regard.

“Woe unto you that desire the day of the LORD! to what end is it for you? the day of the LORD is darkness, and not light.” (Amos 5:18)

The peace we have been left with is not the false peace that the antichrist will offer to all who will be left behind after the Rapture, to those who will still be alive. The worse it gets, the greater his reign will be, he will be the savior of the world and the messiah to the Jews, for the first three and a half years. “Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.” (James 1:3)

I bring this up today for one specific reason, those lost souls you meet nearly every day, those that you speak to on a fairly regular basis, do they hear the joy of the Lord from your lips, your unquestioning faith and trust in Him, or do you speak of the growing evil in fear and trepidation? “Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.” (1st Cor. 10:11)

The amount of faith in the Lord that they see in your trials and tribulations will either encourage them in the days of the Tribulation, the time of Jacob’s Troubles, or cause them to run and hide, speaking the words of Revelation 6:16, “And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:” The so-called peace the antichrist will bring will be perhaps one of Satan’s greatest deceptions ever upon mankind, only the elect of God will be able to see through that lie, the lie that you can see quite clearly today.

I do not mean to be condescending to whatever trials you are going through today, but these beginnings of sorrows that we are experiencing cannot be compared to what will be after we are removed. That perfect peace you know must be shown to them today, if they are left behind, they may be one of those mentioned in Revelation 12:11. “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” and the words you speak to them today may be what they will remember in those days.
