In light of such devastation through all the tornadoes, hurricanes and earthquakes life today is reflecting what Jesus said it would be like just before His return.
It cannot be denied when Jesus answered His disciples of what will be the sign of His return or the end of the world. He gives great detail so that it is easy to understand the signs of the times! ( Matthew 24:3-14 ).
The only way any one of us can endure to the end is to be in the Lord. PERIOD!
May you find the peace that passes all understanding as you endure all that life takes you through.
The best example we have been given is what our Lord endured upon the cross out of love for us. ( Hebrews 12:1-3 ). 1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset [us], and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, 2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of [our] faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.
