Wednesday Evening Service
There’s a storm coming. In a storm, sheep crowd and pack together. God wants us to remain calm during our storms. We have been living in the last days ever since Jesus ascended to Heaven.
The second coming of Christ is in two phases. The first part is when we are raptured up to Him in the clouds; the second part is when we return with Him to the earth. Prophesy is interesting, but we need to keep our focus on the Gospel. The seven churches in Revelation are commonly applied to seven church “ages,” but representatives of each can be found in any local church in any “age.”
John was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, even after being tortured by being dipped in boiling oil. Our burdens only seem difficult. This John is the one who relays to us Christ’s message of calm.
In the midst of turmoil, whether political, financial, or otherwise, God’s message to us is to rest in Him. Don’t be afraid. Nothing is going to happen to God’s people that is ont best. Because of this, the best way to live our lives is by acknowledging Him along the way. There is never a time for us to be afraid. We are not alone.
We should not be afraid of our past, the future, cancer, death, or anything else. Jesus said not to fear want, the end times, or death. Even if there’s no tomorrow, there’s no need for worry if you know the one who is tomorrow. “Worry” is taking God’s job on ourselves.
Fear not for circumstances. Tough times come and go. God has promised to supply our needs.
Fear not because of the times. Every generation has realized they’re in the end times, and every generation has seen God’s provision. We win no matter what.
Fear not about dying. Death has no sting for the Christian; it has become a doorway.
When we fear, we’re telling our Heavenly Father that we don’t need Him. We should lean on Him instead, and let Him comfort us. Fear not, little flock
