A World Polarized Introduction:
The scene was familiar and all too common…a terrible crisis with lives lost and massive numbers of refugees with no place to go and little or no shelter. We’ve seen it reaptedly on t.v.
This tragedy was, however, a bit different from a military coup. It didn’t take place in some impoverished nation where people, even in the best of times, struggle to survive the elements. No! This was in the United States of America in the 21st century!
We’re talking, of course, about Hurricane Katrina and the incredible damage it did to New Orleans. Who could have imagined the scenes of all those people struggling for food, water, and shelter, especially in the U.S. ? 🤔
All of which goes to show that our world, despite all the advances it has made, is still a very dangerous place no matter where you live.
Yet none of this should be surprising, not when the Bible tells us what the world will be like before Jesus returns. We will be facing desperate times, and people will be looking for any leader, no matter who, to get them through it.
Luke 21:11 (KJV)
11 And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be.
