We are living in the very last days before the return of the Lord Jesus to rapture home His Church. The world is a troubled mess. We live in perilous days with all the threats of war, disease, and disasters. Each day somewhere in the world there is news of some kind of disaster. Even the weather has gone wild with all kinds of massive storms and disasters. The days we live in are very troubled and the sad news is that things will continue to get worse. The world is coming upon the time when God will pour out His judgments on the world.
Even with these evil days the born-again Christian still has hope. It is very important for God's people to keep their eyes focused on the Lord Jesus. Faith or trust in the Lord Jesus is like an anchor to the soul. No matter what happens in the world, the Christian who is walking close to the Lord Jesus will stand solid as a rock! God is very faithful and God's people are very secure as they place their hope in Him. Here is what the Bible says:
24 The LORD [is] my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.
25 The LORD [is] good unto them that wait for him, to the soul [that] seeketh him.
26 [It is] good that [a man] should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.
It is a very good thing for a person to hope in the Lord and to patiently wait until the appointed time. Soon the Lord Jesus will return to rapture home all saved Christians. While we wait God wants His people to seek a close walk and to set our hope in Him. Here are some points to consider:
1) Christians have the Lord to set their hope in these last days. No matter how troubled the anchor of our souls is the Lord Jesus Christ.
2) The Lord is aware of His people and He has many good thoughts towards them.
3) God wants His people to wait and to seek after Him
4) It is a very good thing for a man to hope and to seek the Lord
5) Waiting for the Lord involves patience and trust
6) In these last days set your heart and faith upon the Lord
7) The world is getting very evil in these last days
8) Lost people do the opposite from saved people. They set their hearts upon worldly and temporal things. Many set their hearts upon the enjoyment of sin and evil. This is why sexual immorality and the occult is very popular in these last days.
9) Lost people also reject the things of God while accepting the things of the devil.
1 Pet 3
15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:
Hope in the Lord! In these last days keep your eyes and your faith locked on the Lord Jesus. The world will continue to get worse and more evil as we near the return of the Lord. Be sure to read God's Word daily and draw nigh unto the Lord.
