I Thessalonians 4:16 “For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout…”
Sometimes I see and hear so many awful things going on in the news, I just want to go way off somewhere where no one can see or hear me, and shout out my heartbreak and displeasure over what what I see and hear about our country.
Who would have ever dreamed that from the hall of Congress we would have our elected officials trash our own nation. Who would have dreamed we would have our leaders go to other countries and trash America. You would think that of all people they would extol our nation’s virtues (which are many by the way).
Instead, I see them leading us down the road to the destruction of this blessed nation. Our nation isn’t perfect, but we try. We are the first to help in a disaster, wherever it might be. It is because of our freedoms that many people do things and say things they couldn’t say in most other countries.
But, I remind myself daily that soon, “The Lord will descend from heaven with a shout…the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together…to meet the Lord.”
And I’ll be shouting all the way, “Hallelujah!”
