What’s Going on Around Us

Rom 8:18-39 (NLT)
Posted 9/12/2017
Ever wonder why there seems to be so much change in the weather in recent years? I mean everywhere not just here in North America? Well, the Bible has something to say about that. We are living in the “last days” according to Scripture. 2 Timothy 3:1-17 says this period of time is in reference to our world and how things are going. Actually the last days began long ago with the birth of the Church on the Day of Pentecost found in Acts 2:17. The days of the Messiah was known by this term as well as the return of Jesus.
What do we do while we await Jesus return? We continue to believe and reach others with hope of them having redeemed souls. Just knowing that the Bible teaches things that have come to past gives me comfort that nothing catches God by surprise. He knows about the hurricanes, the Tsunamis, the fires on the west coast and the floods. He also knows about humanities’ fickle ways to love themselves more than their creator. Yet, God has made a way for us to be redeemed and to live with Him in heaven. A place where we don’t deserve.
Much of what’s going on around us is due to sin’s effects on a fallen world. In Genesis chapters 1 and 2 the world was made perfect and God was pleased. But since Adam sinned by disobeying God, sin entered and we are still paying the price today (Gen. 3:1-19). However, don’t look at your surroundings with doom and gloom. Be informed, trust in God’s plan for your life and remember… the Scriptures are God’s way of preparing His people of what’s to come!
