Are You Afraid?

The world that we have been used to – the long stability of the West – is shaking to its foundation. You may be worrying that nothing will remain if the shaking continues.

I tend to be afraid of this. I can’t imagine a world in the future where the Western nations have been subjugated to Islam or Communism, but it is possible.

Yet we are Christians. We ought to fear God alone, and accept His judgments in history, knowing it is HIS-story that we live within. He will get glory, no matter what Bill Gates or George Soros do.

Remember what God’s Word says, meditate upon it, and rejoice in our conquering Savior, who laid down His life to redeem us from this present evil age:

25 See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven:

26 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.

27 And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.

28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:

29 For our God is a consuming fire (Heb. 12).

  2. How many times in Scripture do we read the words, “fear not” or “be strong & courageous “ … in so many places, in so many circumstances-Old & New Testaments. Our Mighty, Sovereign Father is affording us this opportunity, at this time in history, to be His voice, His hands, His light, His faithful apostles to a world gripped by fear. Oh Father, fill me with your Holy Spirit & give me the courage of Stephen as he was martyred, to trust You even to my last breath! You bought me, You paid for me with your precious blood. Give me the strength to surrender my all to you & to walk in faith. Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Amen
