Fear & Panic

There are so many, many reasons to fear and panic right about now, aren ‘t there?

We’ve all lost track of what’s next, of what we must be concerned about next…

What can we really do, though, about any of it?

As Christians, we are told within the bible that the end of the age will come and that we will recognize it by certain signs. This end must come because with it eventually comes the return of the savior, Jesus Christ,  King of Kings, Lord of Lords.

As Christians, we must be the calm amongst the storm NOW. We are the inspiration, the light leading the way out of the darkness. We are the hope that no matter what happens, Christ cares and will offer our weary, restless minds hope and peace. There will soon be no more pain, fear, anxiety, or trudging through the days in a terrified panic.

Of course if you don’t believe in the life-saving salvation of Jesus Christ, you have no reason not to panic. Things seem rather dire on the horizon and will continue to spiral down just as the ship, Titanic, slowly sank to her demise.

There is a new world coming and it will be far better than this one was, believe it or not. There will be no more tears there. God will wipe the tears from our eyes.

“In conclusion, whether or not people agree with them, or understand them, as we saw at the beginning of this series, the Lord Himself forewarned us of these things almost two thousand years ago. He wanted us to know about the coming wars which would scourge the world, the incurable plagues and the epidemics, the widespread famines, the devastating earthquakes, the prolonged draughts, the many hurricanes, typhoons and tropical cyclones, the tidal waves, the floods and the tornadoes. God likewise wanted us to know of the rising tide of evil in the world as men oppress men through political, economic, military and religious means in order to make themselves lords over the poor of the world. Jesus referred to these things as the ‘Beginning of Sorrows’; only precursors of worse things to come. Not only that, but as I mentioned earlier, He also said that men’s hearts would fail them for fear, that is, they would have heart attacks, when the final Endtime events began to occur upon the Earth in earnest:

“Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.”
Luke 21:26, KJV

While many people who do not know God’s Word will fear as these Endtime events begin to escalate upon the Earth, as God’s children, He tells us not to fear. That is precisely one of the reasons why He has chosen to impart to us this knowledge; because knowledge of the Divine One’s Ways and Will removes ignorance and fear. As the Prophet Amos was inspired to write:

“Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.”
Amos 3:7, KJV

Thus, rather than fear, we are to trust in Him completely, knowing that He does indeed love us, and that He will not allow anything to happen to us unless it is in accordance to His Divine Will, and for our own good. Please consider the following verses:

“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.”
Isaiah 26:3, KJV

“Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”
Proverbs 3:5-6, KJV

“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”
Romans 8:28, KJV

So again, Jesus knew that these things would come upon the Earth, and He wanted us, His children, to know about them, so that we would not fear, but trust in Him; therefore, there should be no doubt that they are ordained of God. El Shaddai, the Almighty God, is indeed allowing these things to happen, because the stench of man’s sickness, perversity and evilness has filled His nostrils; and He has risen to shake Himself, and the Earth, once more; and we are only now seeing the beginning of His Divine Chastisements upon a rebellious and anti-God world; the “Beginning of Sorrows”.”  (Source)

3And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is among men, and He will dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be among them, 4and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.” 5And He who sits on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” And He said, “Write, for these words are faithful and true.”…

Revelation 21:3-5

  1. It’s not now—and not for a very long time to come. Paul thought his times were the end times. Everyone likes to believe their time is the end times. Christian fundamentalists and conservative evangelicals desperately need to believe this time is the end times because they hope to beat the cancer or heart disease rap and be the first generation to die. I have bad news for them, it is appointed to every man to die—no one gets off easy. Darby and Schofield’s rapture dog and pony show was invented in the 1800s. And I bet more than one preacher has whispered this into the ear of another preacher: “This end times thing might just be one of the greatest evangelistic gimmicks of all time.”

    Problem is—all times in human history have been bad because people are pretty much the same in all times and places. Evil comes from inside like Jesus said—not from the outside. I am concerned about my fellow man as a matter of Christian love and compassion.

  2. It is a shame the media is blowing all this up out of proportion because it is causing fear and panic just for the sake of selling news.

    I don’t think it is the end of the world, but do know that when it comes I am ready.

    Great post!
