Re: Daily Devotional; formerly Chaplains Corner
This is an editorial piece: "It is a gloomy moment in the history of our country. Not in the lifetime of most men has there been so much grave and deep apprehension; never has the future seemed so incalculable as at this time. The domestic economic situation is in chaos. Our dollar is weak throughout the world. Prices are so high as to be utterly impossible. The political cauldron seethes and bubbles with uncertainty. It is a solemn moment of our troubles. No man can see the end."
I believe all of us would agree that this is a fairly accurate account of the state of our nation today.
Those folks living on investments have watched the DOW plummet and are worried about their income.
All of us are watching the gas pump and wondering how much more we can pay for a gallon of gas.
We all make grave decisions at the desks where we pay our bills;
“Which do I pay NOW, and which can I put off until NEXT payday?”
We make grave decisions at K-Mart;
“Do I buy this pair of pants for work, or do I get enough oil to change it in the car next week?”
We make grave decisions at the grocery store;
“Do I buy a case of beans, or do I buy that Ham that looks so good? We haven’t had ham in MONTHS!”
Yes, surely we cannot survive much longer at this rate, can we? But wait – what is the date on that editorial piece again? It is from Harper's Weekly in October 1857. How did we survive the LAST 155 years??
Luke 21:8 (KJV);
“And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them.”
The present world system WILL end; it will end when God deems the time right for it to end! And it will be replaced! There will be a new heaven and a new earth created, and we can live together with Jesus Christ in them for ETERNITY!!
Meanwhile – Go for the beans; ham is bad for you.
