Inspirational: HANG ON
Daily Inspirational Encouragement
By: Linda Kirby/WGON
Yes, the world has gone insane, but it is man’s fault for following his own will instead of God’s will. God will allow it to further His own plans. He can use evil for good ... He is doing that now. What is the good that will come out of this evil today? Well, not long now, we will see a new world order, but it’s not the one the evil ones are trying to bring into being. No, this new world order will be a monarchy ruled by a just King who will be ruling with a rod of iron. There will be peace on earth at last. This world is rushing toward the time of God's wrath, which our King will use to judge these evil ones. At the end of that 7-year period we call the Tribulation, the 1000-year Monarchy will begin (the Millennial Reign). No more suffering! All is good! So, you see, even though man is trying to destroy this world, he will be judged for doing so. Revelation 11:18 -- "The nations were angry, and Your wrath has come, And the time of the dead, that they should be judged, And that You should reward Your servants the prophets and the saints, And those who fear Your name, small and great, And should destroy those who destroy the earth.” So, take heart, if you belong to Jesus, you will not see the hour of trial that is coming upon this earth. Revelation 3:10 -- Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. There’s nothing here that says He will protect you through the tribulation. In fact, Jesus says He will “keep you FROM the hour.” That means you will be "taken out of, away from" -- nothing there about protection. This is describing what will be the Rapture. It also says that He will judge ALL the world, so if anyone is anywhere on this planet, they will be judged. So, hang on to this promise of being taken out of this world before the HOUR of judgment, for it will get you through these evil times!
