2020 12 22 John Haller’s weekly Prophecy Update “2021 Will Be Better, Right?”
Every day we wake up on this earth, we may (and usually do) face challenges of some sort. And at the end of the day, we ask the question about what tomorrow will bring. Despite God telling us "not to worry", our fallen, fleshly sin nature causes us to wonder what tomorrow will bring.
As we come to the end of a tumultuous 2020, we naturally question what the next year will bring. And we want to believer that it will be better. But what if...what if 2020 was just the precursor to the total surrender of all things good by society which will be exponentially magnified with each passing day. It's Romans 1 in real time. The world is trading truth for a lie...and God will give them what they deserve.
As Christians, while it is ok to ask questions, we must not fall into the trap of finding peace and comfort in things that the world can give us. Instead, we must draw together as brothers and sisters in Christ and find joy and reassurance in the Savior who died for us so that we may live.
A dark day may be coming...but without warning, the brilliance and majesty of the Lord God will pierce that darkness and judge those who would mock, slander and berate His children. As an earthly father's instinct is to protect his children at any cost, God has already done that through the blood of His son. Now, we wait patiently and occupy until He comes. While we don't know if next year will be better or not, it doesn't matter. If we know Christ and accept His propitiation for our sins, we have everything we will ever need.
