Part 4 of The Signs of The End
Luke 21:11 And there will be great earthquakes in various places, and famine and pestilence, and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven.
Who hasn’t seen or witnessed the painful reality of this prediction? One of the most dramatic natural disasters occurred at the end of 2004, when an earthquake centered deep in the the Indian Ocean caused the devastating tsunami that killed tens of thousands across Southern Asia. Meanwhile, rarely a week goes by when we don’t hear about some new natural disaster, floods,famine, hurricanes, or earthquakes. Even with all our knowledge, all our science, all our technology, as humans we are still at the mercy of these forces so much greater than we are.
The Bible verse above also mentions pestilence which we today would call epidemics or pandemics. Again in recent years the world has been afflicted with such diseases as cholera,E,Coli SARS,HIV,bird flu,and the Swine flu.
Have you ever been in a natural disaster, or known someone who was? Have you been the victim of an epidemic, or known someone who was? How should knowing that these are signs of the end help us cope with these occurrences? How could we draw hope, even amid these tragedies, when others see nothing but despair? 🤔
Romans 8:28 Now we know that all things work together for work to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.
Luke 21:28 Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.
