What Does the Future Hold?
By Dr. Jed N. Snyder
Perhaps you wonder about the future. At one time or another we all think about what may happen. Will I be healthy? Will I be able to maintain my job? Will my children grow up and have families of their own? Will the economy collapse? Who will care for me when I grow old?
A great question that may be in your heart is this, does God know and care? Is God involved in my day to day life? We are studying the Book of Revelation in the Bible in two weekly gatherings. In this complicated futuristic book we find some very certain and clear considerations. We also find some issues that are not so easily understood and agreed upon by Bible scholars.
Clearly and with certainty this book tells us that Jesus Christ is and will be active in the affairs of earth. He will be active in the lives of those living when the prophecies of this book are implemented. That leads me to one question, are you ready if the prophecies begin to come to pass? May I ask it differently? Is your life in good relationship to Jesus Christ? Can you come face to face with him today and be at peace?
Another matter that is clear in the book of Revelation is that there are fearful and powerful evil actions coming against much of mankind. These judgements by God are against those who reject his great love. The upheavals on the earth will bring pain and death on many believers as well, but since they are right with God death does not frighten them since it leads to an eternity of joy and peace.
My hope is that you are ready for the upheavals ahead? Is your heart right with God?
Happy future to you.
