Economic Uncertainties:

viaadmin Volume 39

What’s happening around the world is frightening for many. Things are happening with such rapidity that even the most seasoned analysts are not sure what will happen tomorrow. Governments are intervening at a national level to prop up the financial systems and to plug the holes in the dikes, but it seems that no sooner have they patched one hole with hundreds of millions of dollars, than something else breaks loose.

People are worried about the future and well they might be. According to the Bible, the darkest days this world has ever known are in the future. People try to laugh off apocalyptic fears. They have heard cults prophesying of coming doom that never materializes. They have heard the Biblical warnings of an antichrist who will emerge and dominate the world stage in the end times. But since ‘nothing’ has happened yet, they cynically mock.

These are uncertain times. Everything seems so volatile with only a hairline between order and chaos, stability and anarchy. What is your anchor? Are you absolutely sure of anything? No one knows God’s timetable but God Himself, and no one has any right to forecast that within so many months or so many years this or that will happen according to the Bible. But be sure of this: the Lord Jesus Christ will return, and it could be at any moment. Are you ready?

Christians have faced the fact that their sins deserve eternal punishment. They have discovered that salvation is found in Jesus Christ alone, and have rested upon Him for their personal salvation. Even though Christians may lose their jobs, investments, children, marriages or homes, they have an anchor: They can never lose their souls and are sure of eternal life in Heaven.

Eternal life is offered during your lifetime as a free gift (Romans 6:23). You either accept it or reject it. “He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life” (1 John 5:12-13).

Have you ever received Jesus Christ as your own Saviour? “As many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the children of God, even to them that believe on His name” (John 1:12).
