Verse and Message (Week of March 13-19, 2011) March 17, 2011

Job 38:4-7

“Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth?
      Tell me, if you know so much.
Who determined its dimensions
      and stretched out the surveying line?
What supports its foundations,
      and who laid its cornerstone
as the morning stars sang together
      and all the angels shouted for joy?”
 

The terrorists attacks on September 11, 2001.

The 2004 tsunami that devastated Thailand.

Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

The Haiti earthquake just last year.

This past week our world faced yet another disaster of overwhelming proportions in Japan.

To many, these catastrophes are indicators of complete chaos in a world that is out of control. To Christians, we see additional evidence of Biblical prophesy being fulfilled. The secular individual asks “Is there a God?” The saved, know that we live in a fallen world. The signs are not a surprise if you believe Scripture.

God doesn’t cause these events. God is in charge of everything that is GOOD. However, the enemy has been given a season to reign in this world. For that reason, trouble will be a part of each day on earth.

If you are looking for comfort in a volatile time, the answer is JESUS CHRIST. Below is a reminder of the Beautiful God we know. We must make it a priority to count our blessings each day and pray for those in desperate need, especially those who don’t know our Lord, and for those who even question His existence. There is Eternal Hope available–to all who receive HIM. That is where the only supernatural peace may be discovered.

FATHER,

We know you are here. May EVERYONE feel your presence. Give us strength when the world seems so grim. Shine your LIGHT, HEALING, and RESTORATION for the people in Japan, and around the world. May your NAME be glorified and recognized through the miracles that are happening, even in times of tragedy.

AMEN

    The reason Islamic radicals around the world create chaos is their belief that for the coming of their savior to occur, the world will need to be in total chaos. The more chaos, the faster the coming of the 12th Iman. There is no use to talk peace with people who believe they are serving their god most faithfully by creating chaos.
    Love, Jesus, wins in the end but there will much suffering and killing first. We are watching history unfold.
