Be Not Troubled
My text will come from Matthew 24:6. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
The world is filled with trouble, violence, death, and more trouble. That’s all you see on the news. It’s not really news. It’s really old stuff that we hear about everyday. Same ole negative junk.
In these troubling and depressing times it’s easy to get discouraged and depressed because it just seems like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. Well friend, there is coming a day where we will get relief from our troubles and there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
From our text our Lord was giving signs of his return. He told his closest friends how it would be at the end of the age. Wars, killing, natural disasters, stock market woes, stealing, deception, violence, and terrorism would be taking place at the end time and yet with all these things that will take place he said for them to not be troubled. Why? All these things are in Gods plan and the Lord knows what he is doing. He warned his disciples about it so they would not be taken off guard when it happens.
Dear reader, these troublous times only lets us know that we don’t have long till we will be going home and that’s something to praise God for, so be not troubled!
