Perilous times have come indeed (2Timothy3:1-5)! Wars and rumours of wars, earthquakes, tremors, landslides, flooding, tsunamis, drought, famines, drug-resistant diseases, economic turmoil, civil disobedience, civil wars, domestic and family instabilities, broken down relationships, sexual perversions and impurities, desecration of marriage, bodily harms and abuses, men’s hearts failing them because of fears, political aberrations and instabilities, acts of terrorism, wickedness in low and high places, disobedience to parents, misplaced loyalties and emulations, disappointed hopes. Indeed, we are yet to see much more all over the world. The intensity of these calamities point to the imminence of the return of Jesus Christ and earth-shaking events which would closely precede his return. These mind-blowing events would be of severe dimensions. There would be unprecedented, intense, global, political, economic, social, spiritual and moral decline and instability. There would be strange geologic and astronomic, universal signs and wonders that would closely precede the second coming of Jesus Christ! Our hearts go out to Norway over the recent shattering blow of terrorism by a mad gun man! Our hearts also go out to the victims of famine in Somalia! No region of this world is spared trouble; there are only variations in the intensities. No nation can claim any form of superiority or immunity. No human being can claim perfection, except through the grace of God Almighty! In the midst of all these turbulence, the light of God is still shining through his grace upon and through the Church. The grace of God through Jesus Christ is the world’s only hope. Grace accepted solves problems, but grace denied or rejected spells turmoil. Grace is the unmerited or undeserved mercy of God given to human beings! How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him ;( Hebrews 2:3).
Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved (Romans 10:13).
