Sept 25 – Hope for a Troubled World

Civil war in Syria; military takeover in Egypt; and of course the on-going terrorist attacks and threats by Al Queda. But yet, there is hope, for better days ahead. The Bible tells us that current vents will culminate with God’s intervention and the literal return of Jesus Christ to this planet to set up His kingdom. While nobody knows when, there are many sign posts in the world today which indicate the second coming of Christ may not be very far away.” But whether Christ’s coming is soon, or not until many years, true believers can have the assurance that Christ will return. John’s gospel records the promise of Jesus to Christians. “….I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to myself.” To be ready for our Savior’s coming, we need only to heed Christ’s invitation “I am the way, the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father except through Me.”
