Is it the End of the World?


Weary?

One of the common criticisms of the Bible is that it is irrelevant, a human product full of mistakes.

Of course, the reality is, it’s neither of those things. As is discussed in this space—and will be a theme we hammer again and again—Bible prophecy is a jarring proof that Scripture is far ahead of its critics. It is a tremendous source of comfort for the rest of us.

There’s a lot of fear these days. A news report just from today tells us that widespread layoffs of state employees from around the country could commence this summer; many states are broke.

And I read last week that the earthquake that devastated Japan lifted a section of the sea floor measuring 150 miles long and 85 miles wide…and slammed it back down.

Catastrophic things are happening in our world today. But Jesus Christ, far more than a revolutionary philosopher, has told us with certainty that in Him is true peace and rest from the assaults of this life. Here is your homework: read Ezekiel 37, and then contemplate recent history and the return of the Jews to their ancestral land. This is prophecy writ quite large. Gargantuan, in fact.

Next read Matthew 11:28 and reflect on that. As an individual existing on this planet, you should listen to the voice of Jesus.

How does that make you feel?

Fighting BDS
For some time, Israel’s enemies have been cultivating relationships in a seemingly benign environment: America’s religious community. In particular, BDS (Boycott/Divestment/Sanctions) efforts have continued apace within mainline communities (Presbyterian Church-USA; United Methodist Church; etc.
