Matthew 28:20b Jesus said, “Lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the age.”
This year is starting off like last year ended. Plenty of fireworks. You can sense the tension in the air. It’s like a fog. We have shifted into an even darker period. Terrible despair has fallen over much of the planet. One reason is the financial hopelessness.
It’s hard to imagine spending most of your life working at or building a business, just to see it collapse due to a pandemic or in certain cities due to rioting and arson. You are in economic despair. You wonder how can you provide for your family? How can you keep a roof over their heads and food on the table?
The shift we are experiencing in the financial world is fueling globalization away from independence of the human spirit toward dependence on government and totalitarian rule.
No doubt about it, we are in a rough period. It is just the way Jesus said it would be near the time of His return. But, don’t despair. He is with us always even unto the end. Keep your eyes on the light–Jesus. He will guide your way through this dark valley.
