It is time to rejoice! What great stress the church is under now. Hold fast to the Word of God. Let us be content in whatsoever state we are in. Our help is on the way! Rejoice we have a Savior. It may seem dark and death is all around but our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. Christ will rescue the church from this darkness. Endure to the end. Let the weight of our desperation be lifted in our confidence in Christ. No matter how we go, by the grave or by way of the rapture, let us be content and glorify Christ until He returns.
We are victorious no matter what the world may say. Jesus said that in this world we would have tribulation but to be of good cheer because He has over come the world. All my hope is in Jesus. I will give up on any means of fixing things myself and rely on my Savior. He has proven to me that He is faithful time and time again. My strength has never gotten me through, it is always Jesus.
1 Peter 4:12-13 KJV — Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
