Glory and honor are in His Presence; strength and gladness are in His place. Give unto the LORD, ye kindreds of the people, give unto the LORD glory and strength. (1 Chronicles 16)
2012 will be a year that further gives crediance that the days of rebellion against God are coming to a close. There will be untold crisis in weather, earthquake and war. These things must be; they are a harbinger of the One that is coming soon to sit up His Kingdom of righteousness and peace. Christ said nation would rise against nation, an increase in earthquakes and distress, and war and rumor of war. The birth pangs of a new age have to happen before He returns.
Most hear of the last days and great fear comes. It should not be this way for Believers. It is an excellent opportunity to witness to our friends and relatives why we do not fear. Christ instructed us to lift up our heads and realize that our redemption is drawing near. In His Kingdom there will be no more war, no rebellion, no murder or other scourges that afflict mankind now. We should do everything we can do to hasten the coming of the LORD; not fear what has to happen before He arrives.
Sin and rebellion are even now being exposed for what it is; evil. It ultimately leads to eternal seperation from God. We are children of the Light and we should conduct ourselves as such. We must not fear as the world does when these birth pangs increase in frequency.
Christ has made great and precious promises to His children; I will never leave you or forsake you. I will guard your going in and your coming out, every move we make is under His watchful eye.
We must worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness; fear before Him, all the earth. We will be stable and not moved. As this happens on a daily and personal basis the heavens will be glad and the earth will rejoice. All of nature itself is awaiting the revelation of the children of God!
Do not fear; no matter how bad it looks, or is, the LORD sits above the circle of the earth and He observes the comings and goings of the children of men. As His coming draws near the fields will begin to rejoice, and all that is in them. The trees of the woods will sing out at the presence of the LORD, because He comes to judge the earth.
Oh give thanks unto the LORD, for He is good; for His mercy endures forever. He is our salvation and He will deliver us from the heathen. We will give thanks to His holy Name and glory in His praise. Blessed be the LORD God of Israel forever and ever. (1 Chronicles 16)
