Unfortunately we are living in a day of seemingly unending bad news...war and threats of war, terrorism, murder, crime, gangs, sexual perversion and promiscuity, and constant anguish and fear.
Just as unfortunately many Christians use "these Days" as an excuse not to excel, in this surrounding world, as a child of God.
"These days" are the days in which our God has placed us to serve Him with power and authority! Not the days of surrender to the satanic, demonic, and carnal forces that seem to rule the day! We are to rise up and fight, work, and serve our Lord with all of our might!
Fox New's Neil Cavuto, on a recent broadcast, stated these words of wisdom: "Accusing the times is but excusing ourselves."
No matter what the "times" may look like...we are to dedicate ourselves to the fervent service of our Mighty God!
Our darling Lord Jesus the Christ spoke these words to His disciples just prior to His arrest and subsequent crucifixion...knowing that perilous times were coming to thier lives:
"These things have I spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world." John 16: 33.
He will never leave us nor forsake us! He has empowered us, via His Holy Spirit, His precious Word, and His glorious Church to be victorious, through Him, no matter what the "times" may throw at us!
Rise up Brothers and Sisters to the work of our God...these are perilous times...but even in these times we can be overcomers!
