The Realities, The Uncertainties, & Bible Prophecies

Looking back in my teen age years, as far as I can recall, it was during my third year high school that I was invited to a Bible Study in the school campus . It was held during our vacant period . I get so interested to it that until our fourth year , I joined the same group. Since most of the members of the Bible Study are my classmates in fourth year, four of us were made closed best friends. That even when we graduated from high school we still continued to see each other and continued in Bible Studies in a church where we find ourselves continually be fed by the word of God. We all grew in our faith in God , and adhere to the same belief that salvation is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ alone.

Long time passed by, and we had to part ways for different reasons, but the faith that we all hold on to , was the same we had even until now.

Until now the Bible teachings & principles I learned from.the Church we had attended and became a member of is the same teachings and principles I continued and steadfastly hold on to.

Attending Church services, Bible Studies & Bible Readings had been part of my life. I find comfort, and peace in my faith in God and through His words the Bible.

During the pandemic time , though attending Church Services was not possible, am still thankful that Bible Reading is still possible. Live streaming of Church's Worship Services were made also possible. Through it spiritual strenght is renewed , revived and I survived from spiritual weakness.

The pandemic really tested my faith in God. It manifested how weak or strong my faith is. It manifested how far or close I've been to God at those difficult times. It proved myself who am really is inside and out.

I thanked God by His grace, mercy and goodness, He still found me holding on to Him in faith and trust. His promises in His words I kept believing and claiming it's truth and fulfillment.

Throughout the pandemic and even until now His provision and protection continued. God works out in amazing ways to show His goodness, love, mercy and faithfulness.

The World in Reality Now

No one did ever know and expected the pandemic situation that we are in now. The news about Covid 19 that started in China had spread so quickly from all other countries, around the world and Philippines was not exempted. No one did expect it would last so long. It's been two years now and we don't know when it would end. People have suffered much around the world. Many lives have been lost due to the virus infections. People's lives became miserable most especially those living in poverty line. Many people became jobless resulting to financial difficulties. Families were made far apart.

As of now, situations were going back little by little to normal mobility just like before pandemic. Back to work as usual, because business establishments were opened, drivers of jeep, buses, taxis and other vehicles were needed by commuters who will go to work, as well MRT & LRT were back to services in full capacities but with facemasks. Face to face classes were back though limited .

War for now between Russia and Ukraine alarmed countries worldwide. My country, the Philippines, one of among other countries were somehow affected, because of the OFW in Ukraine were trapped in the war. They must be rescued for their safety as well as those other nationalities , more so the Ukrainian civilians.

The war actually, somehow contributed in the economic conditions of the world . Economically somehow the price of oil increased. I just don't know exactly the reason behind but somehow it affected the oil price increase.

And as oil price increase , automatically prices of commodities increases causing another problems to arise.

The present conditions we have right now , different problems confronting us, uncertainties in life is what we are heading to. What now ? will be the questions arising in our minds . Is there yet better things to hope for to.come? Will we be able to survive the difficulties in life? And how will it be?

Down from history, generations to generations, dispensations to dispensations in the lives of human's history, the quest for survival is the main thing.

In the world we live in , in order to continue to exist , we need to surpass the difficult situations in order to survive. The circumstances in the world dictates you ought to be strong because to be strong is power. And to have power is to have victory. Only strong defeat the weak and to be in power is to be victorious over the powerless or helpless. Just like in the war. The strong or powerful country country triumphs over the war.

As humans, we are supposed to understand humans for we are all alike in nature. We can easily relate to each others needs and comforts for by nature we are all the same. But it seems no one ever cares when greed and coveteousness arises in the hearts and minds .

Life's Uncertainties

The world is facing crisis, pertaining to health conditions, economic conditions , and peace and order. Why are we going through such world crisis? Had not humans reached the peak of intelligence needed to solve any kind of world crisis ? Had not humans organized World Health Organization, (WHO) United Nations (UN) European Union (EU) World Trade Center (WTC) North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) International Criminal Courts (ICC) and many more organizations to address to such World & International crisis? Is there still lacking of any kind of organization to solve such crisis? Could there still be a solution to such world crisis? If there is, WHAT could it be , or WHO could it be?

Bible Prophecies of the Last Days

The following are my personal insights and thoughts in what I have learned and had been taught in the church through Preachings and Bible Studies.

The things happening in the world previously and at the present time are but signs of the last days mentioned in the Bible. The signs of the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ to take His Church before the Tribulation Period , in which the anti Christ will reign in this earth for 7 years. The details of his reign is mentioned in the book of Revelation.

I will not go into the details of it, but I will be giving some references about the signs of the last days or the second coming of Jesus Christ.

I hope you bear with me and read it.

In the New Testament , in the book of Matthew , Jesus Himself , while He was yet with them and have not been crucified talked about His coming again.

In Matthew 24:3 And as He (Jesus) sat upon the Mount of Olives, the disciples came into Him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? And what shall be the signs of Thy coming, and the end of the age?

Matthew 24: 4 And Jesus answered and said unto them , Take heed that no man deceive you.

5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars; see that ye be not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet

7 For nation shall rise against nations, and kingdom against kingdom; and there shall be famines and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

From these Bible verses we were given the clear signs of the the second coming of Christ.

So I can say that, what is happening in the world today that we are experiencing are but part of the signs. And these signs would only end as God allows it to end , and it will be when Jesus comes again for His Church , which God the Father only knows the exact time.

In which case, we are to be watchful , and be ready for Christ's coming by being sure we are in the right faith & relationship with Him as Saviour and Lord of our life. (John 3:16 ; John 1:12)

Thanks again for reading.

Putting our trust to the Lord is a very good choice for us because in that way, He will take control of us and He will never put us in danger. We may experience a lot of troubles in life but knowing God is the one who leads us, we are in Good Hands. All glory to God!😇☝️

These times are when we really need to hold on to God because everything happening today we're mentioned already, I pray we do not fall away from Christ when we need to stand.

Someday all the problems will be gone and we will all have a good time in a world without problems.

2 Tim chap 3:1-5 rightly fortold the times that we are living now, the last days that will be very hard to live in and mentioned some of the woeful behaviors of humans too. All we have to do; keep holding our integrity and God for our survival.

Yes, you're right. All of these are part of the signs of Jesus second coming. This time we need not loosen our faith but to strengthen it with His words. Keep our faith high.
