Perilous Times (#93)
Bible version used: KJV
Perilous Times . . .
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 Timothy 3:1
Wars, AIDS, terrorists, joblessness . . . What in the world is going on? And how am I going to cope with it?
The Bible has some straight talk for the times we are in.
These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. John 16:33
God has not abandoned you.
In fact, God loves you and wants a relationship with you.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16
God has provided a way for you to have this relationship with Him.
He sent his only son, Jesus, to bridge the gulf between you and Him. Jesus gave His life for your sins, was raised from the dead, and went to heaven.
The most important thing you can do is to fall into the arms of God.
• Admit your need for God.
• Accept the atoning sacrifice of Jesus on your behalf.
• Live every moment in the power of the resurrected Jesus.

These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
What is my only comfort in life and in death?
That I am not my own, but belong to my faithful Savior Jesus Christ. He has fully paid for all my sins with his precious blood. He watches over me in such a way that not a hair can fall from my head without the will of my Father in heaven; in fact, all things must work together for my salvation. Because I belong to him, Christ assures me of eternal life and makes me willing and ready from now on to live for him.
