Romans 8:22 (NASB) “For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pain of childbirth together until now.”
Everyone knows the United States has her problems. Political unrest (mismanagement), inflation, social turmoil, and a falling stock market with rising interest rates that are causing a recession. But few have heard about or noticed the financial turmoil in China with their huge national indebtedness and internal decent that has led to their own recession.
Think about it. The U.S. and China, the number one and number two economic leaders in the world, both with internal difficulties and indebtedness, and both in recessions of their own making. What a mess! And …I don’t see it getting any better.
Meanwhile, Europe is in an economic meltdown that won’t go away any time soon but will get worse as winter hits. To put it bluntly, the world is in a mess and growing worse by the day. Is this something new…unheard of? No. The conditions are just as the Bible says they will be like–right before the Rapture!
Romans 8:38-39 “For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, (39) Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
