Do Not Be Frightened

Do not be frightened in this time of difficulty. When the world is fearful and trembles at every disease, rumor of war, the threat of a tyrant, or the trembling of the earth. These are the signs of the last days. Open your eyes that you may see and understand.

But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. 2 Timothy 3:1

And Jesus answered them, “See that no one leads you astray. For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and they will lead many astray. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places.  All these are but the beginning of the birth pains. Matthew 24:4-8

You can see how people of this time tremble and fear at the smallest thing. So afraid are they, that they go to extreme measures to protect themselves against disaster and infection from some people and viruses. Not that it isn’t a good idea or wise to take measures for protection. But the people of this time go so far it seems that they are out of their minds.

But, you dear Christian, do not fear, for the Lord has everything in control, and has a purpose for every shaking of the earth and event since the beginning of time. Also, do you really think He is surprised at the schemes and plans of the wicked? I assure you He is NOT!

But as He said in Isaiah 30:17 the people of the world will be frightened of even little things in this day and age.

A thousand shall flee at the threat of one; at the threat of five you shall flee, till you are left like a flagstaff on the top of a mountain, like a signal on a hill. 

The Lord will accomplish His will, purpose, and plan exactly according to what He has decided and declared. Do not worry but press forward without fear. Do the work He has given you. When it is your time it is your time. There is nothing that can change that. 

Besides this, what do you have to fear, except for God? When the Lord calls you home, what a joy that will be. 

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling. Psalm 46:1-3

We will put everything in the hands of the Lord. Let the nations do as they will. Jesus Christ will come soon and judge them accordingly.

Let the sea roar, and all that fills it; the world and those who dwell in it! Let the rivers clap their hands; let the hills sing for joy together before the LORD, for he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world with righteousness, and the peoples with equity. Psalm 98:7-9


The nations rage, the kingdoms totter; he utters his voice, the earth melts. The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. Psalms 46:6-7
