Wars going on in Libya. Just now Japan experienced a massive earthquake. The triggered tsunamis will soon hit other nation coasts. I can’t help but be reminded of this passage in Mark,
Mark 13 (NIV):
When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. 8 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places, and famines. These are the beginning of birth pains… 30 Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. 31 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.
33 Be on guard! Be alert!
If what Jesus had said when he spoke to his disciples about the end of times was right, then surely we are seeing His words come into light. I have never doubted the Bible because it is rich in wisdom, it is a source for comfort strength and revival, and it is also the Truth in what God’s plan is. In the passage above, we are definitely seeing wars and earthquakes happening in various places. While although it seems disheartening to know what God is going to do to his people, the last sentence really struck me the most. My words will never pass away. When we find God through His word, we know for certain what will become of us when we pass away. And God has given us each one of us a chance to know Him and receive His Love because His words are forever among us. Libya and Japan, my prayers go to everyone there in this suffering times. I pray that through God’s will, people will realize what they need the most and find the Truth in what they are looking for.
