In the above photograph of mine taken at Waikiki Beach, this Black-Crowned Night Heron looks as if he is contemplating what the warning sign is all about. At least he is alert and (my fantasizing) attempting to take in the information. In these troublesome times in which we live, we need to stay informed and alert ourselves. Here is a recent article about the economy we need to be aware of. In this article are 5 urgent warnings from Big Banks that the economy "has gone suicidal."
Did you hear about the new Obama Executive order about space weather? In particular perhaps a CME striking earth as it almost did in 2012? Check out this article.
In August of this year I wrote a blog post here about the CME almost hitting the earth in 2012. A CME is a very large plasma like gas explosion from the sun. In the August blog post it has a video featuring Brent Miller who is an expert on these type occurrences and how it relates to Bible Prophecy, in particular part of the trumpet judgments in Revelation 8. See this fascinating information.
I mention these 2 articles not to be "doom and gloom" and not to put fear in your hearts. We need to be informed ! Some people would rather not hear all this type current events; they would rather pretend life goes on as normal. These are not normal times. It is not the "Happy Days" of the 1950's.
As stated in my blog numerous times, you need not fear if you have a close, personal, intimate relationship with God through Jesus Christ. Things may be worse for true believers before the Rapture occurs, that is true. Or we may be raptured before much damage is done. We will
not go through the 7 year tribulation period, however.
Romans 15:4 tells us, "For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope."
Read the Bible often, pray without ceasing, and God's Holy Spirit will give you hope and keep you from being overly fearful. The Scriptures truly are a comfort in these perilous times.
"Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Spirit." - Romans 15:13
"Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." Jesus at John 14:27
