Amanda Berry…escaped her abductors after ten years in captivity. Shawn Hornbeck, another long term kidnapping victim, returned to his parents in 2007, after four years “missing.” Psychic Sylvia Browne, told the mothers of both…their children were “on the other side.” Ms. Browne doesn’t seem too concerned about her psychic failures…claiming she is “more right than wrong”…and…”only God is right all the time.”
God is right…all the time! He has already provided information about the times in which we are currently living. Times when evil is called good, and good is called evil. Times when even the church turns away from truth. Times when the world looks for a savior…but rejects The Savior! We are presently living in those times…
The future has already been predicted to be full of trouble…even referred to as the “Time of Jacob’s Trouble.” The present-day nation of Israel is at the center of this dangerous time, but all the world is going to be drawn in…no one will escape.
My friends in India and Bolivia have always lived with more “trouble” than I’ve ever had. It had seemed that America would be spared from that kind of suffering. However, in only the last few years, I have seen my country change…”fundamentally.” I can now imagine a time when we too might be hungry, afraid, poor, and desperate. God has predicted this trouble…and I have no doubt it will eventually come.
I also have no doubt that the “Time” will be short, ending in the Day of the Lord…when my Savior will return and take care of everything!
“In all history there has never been such a time of terror. It will be a time of trouble for my people Israel. Yet in the end they will be saved!” (Jeremiah 30:7/NLT)
