In my life, I have seen our nation and, indeed, the entire planet going from bad to worse. Where do we begin? Terrorism? Street violence? The rising heroin epidemic? Broken homes? We now have a prominent “social justice” group calling for the dismantling of the traditional family. We have college professors inciting violence and stifling free speech. We have politicians so utterly vile, we would not want them near our children. We have so-called black-hooded anti-fascists who, by their own despicable actions, behave as fascists! There is also growing discrimination against people of faith. Hollywood gives us programs and movies that are unfit for human consumption. We no longer care about truth and logic—political correctness seems to be the prevailing mantra. I could go on and on, but I won’t.
According to the Bible, the world will grow even sicker in sin and corruption. The world is in dire straits now, but the situation will grow even worse. A world dictator will lead our reeling planet into a time of great tribulation. This one world leader, a puppet of Satan, will oppose all that is good and godly. He will mislead multitudes. There will be a war unlike any other war. Millions upon millions will die.
But at the darkest hour in human history, God intervenes.
Revelation 21 and 22 give us the happy ending. The evil Antichrist is destroyed. Satan and his demons are sent to the Lake of Fire. There is the creation of a Heaven and a New Earth. Never again will Satan mislead God’s people. There will be no more sickness. No more disease. No more hunger. No more violence. No more poverty. No more death. We shall live forever with our Savior, Jesus Christ.
I take comfort knowing that we are on God’s side and God’s side wins! The corrupt politicians do not win. The ungodly activists do not win. The drug dealers do not win. The Hollywood producers do not win. God wins. The battle belongs to the Lord. And as we are beloved members of His family, so we win, too.
Let me encourage you to read the last two chapters yourself.
