A friend of mine recently wrote a post addressing many of the dreams and conspiracy theories that are swarming around. I couldn’t agree with him more.
Those who are focused on these rumors are focused on the wrong thing. We chase down those rabbit holes of conspiracy theories and dooms day prophecies when we really should be spending time in the word of God. Studying our Bibles and making sure our hearts and minds are right with the Savior.
Will things get worse? Certainly. Will there be terrible things that will happen to Christ’s followers? Without a doubt. Christ Himself foretold that happening. But we must not get distracted. The devil doesn’t have to get us to follow him, only to take our eyes off of Christ.
While I haven’t seen may of the emails that Evan talks about in his post, I have seen enough to believe that it goes around and I’ve seen enough of emails in my inbox that a simple Google search will show the truth, or fallacy, in the message.
You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains.
— Matt 24:6-8
Be of good cheer. For HE has overcome the world!
