Man's Bad News is God's Good News

Do you ever get the gut feeling that we are on the edge of something great?  If your answer is “yes,” you are not alone.  Millions, even billions, have a gnawing suspicion that momentous changes are about to take place that will affect the lives of every one of us on this space capsule called Earth.

The world seems to be unraveling.  Our leaders seem strangely impotent to make decisions to avert disaster.  Day by day the deficit grows larger and now hangs over our heads like a monstrous sword. Not only is the USA affected; Europe is a house built on sinking sand.

A few years ago President H. W. Bush welcomed the collapse of the Soviet Union as the harbinger of good things to come.  Tyranny would collapse and a thousand blossoms of peace, liberty and fraternity would burst forth.  But it has not turned out as predicted.  Nuclear conflict is more likely now than in the days of the Cold War.  Whatever happened to the emancipation of the human race?  Did you know that there are more slaves now than at any previous time in history?

Some of us believe that we are seeing the fulfillment of Bible prophecies.  The words of Jesus ring in our ears: “Where there is a carcass, there the vultures will gather…at that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky…” Matthew 24: 28, 30.

We are not doomsday criers.  We believe that after the night comes the morning. We believe that man’s bad news is God’s good news.  The King is coming! (John 14: 1-3)

So you and I are called to do God’s work while the last grains of sand remain in the hourglass.  This must take precedence above everything else.

May God’s peace assure you that The Best Is Yet To Be.
