Romans 8:18 (NASB) “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us.”
Just a blink. That’s all it would take. Our world sits on pins and needles and all it would take to move us into a war and economic collapse with never before seen nuclear consequences is for someone to blink. For someone to get over anxious and make a mistake.
This is the way Jesus said it would be at the time of the end. The world would be chaotic, hearing of “wars and rumors of wars”. (Matthew 24:6) With Iran and their terrorist proxy militias who would jump at the chance to employ a “suitcase nuke” or some other sort of dirty bomb, what could go wrong? Add in that Israel, Saudi Arabia, and Pakistan all have nuclear capabilities to respond to such an attack, and things could go very bad for our world.
Make no mistake, a war beyond Ukraine and Russia is coming and all it will take is a blink.
But, praise the Lord, “In the twinkling of an eye” (quicker than a blink) we will leave this insane world behind! How do I know? The Bible tells me so! In Revelation 3:10 it says, “Because you have kept the word of my perseverance, I will keep you from the hour of testing, that hour which is about to come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.”
