THE TIMES IN WHICH WE LIVE

January 16, 2021

Ten years ago, if someone told me that I would be living in such a time like this, I would say to them they were joking. I would probably do this because I did not realize the magnitude and extent of the trouble that the world would be in, as foretold in Matthews 24.

Our world is in turmoil, and our country may be on the brink of a civil war. I surely did not think ten years ago that American citizens would storm into the national capital building looking to capture and assassinate elected officials while many others defaced the building. I did not think a domestic terrorist would be planning an armed protest at all 50 state capitols in the days before January 20, 2021. I did not believe American citizens would go to the upcoming presidential inauguration in Washington, D.C., with evil intent.  Most of all, I would not think the United States president over his four-year tenure would radicalize his most fringe supporters.

This is the times in which we live. Consequently, for peaceful citizens, these happenings and the fall-out from the pandemic has caused many hearts to fail. I wish I could say things will get better, but I know according to the times in which we live, it won’t.

Matthew 24:8 in three different translations states as follows:

All these are the beginning of sorrows. (KJV)

All these are the beginning of birth pains. (NIV)

This is how the first contractions and birth pains of the new age will begin. (TPT)

In the verses before this one, Jesus told His disciples about the signs of end-time events, and then in verse eight, he lets them know that similar to birth pains these events will become more frequent and painful. Unfortunately, the Word stated that these are only the beginning of suffering. So dear fellow believers, buckle up, make sure you have a right relationship with God, and get in the Word, for they will be the only things that will sustain you during the times in which we live.
