Even Though the World Persecutes Us, We Are Confident That He Will Return. He Will Return to This Earth in Glory, Just as He Did to Them as Needed

John 16:31-33 31"You believe at last!" Jesus answered. 32"But a time is coming, and has come, when you will be scattered, each to his own home. You will leave me all alone. Yet I am not alone, for my Father is with me. 33"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."

The analogies used by Jesus were difficult for the disciples to grasp. They were struggling with His expression during His final evening with them, "In a little while you will see me no more, and then in a little while you will see me." Then Jesus told them He would no longer use figures of speech and that He would return to the Father. They finally believed.

Yes, they have declared their belief, but believing and staking your life on that belief are not the same thing. Jesus warned them that their faith was insufficient to keep them by His side. Despite the fact that He would be alone, the Father would be with Him. As His disciples, we may have to travel the same path. We may lose the company of those who have walked with us in obedience to the Spirit, but we will not be alone.

Jesus was concerned about the upheaval they would face in the coming days. They could have peace in Him if they knew He was coming back. Even though the world persecutes us, we are confident that He will return. He will return to this earth in glory, just as He did to them.

Don't lose heart! Don't be discouraged! The world will not continue on its current path indefinitely. When He returns, the world He has already conquered will be revealed. He'll share his victory with us. His reign will come to an end. Don't let the world's problems bring you down.

The Great Tribulation

It is our belief that the Great Tribulation referred to in the New Testament Book of Revelation (chapters 6-11) is unfolding before our eyes. In the near future, we will devote the "Tribulation" tab on our "Trending" menu to this emerging reality. As people continue to unplug from mainstream media, our commitment is to present the truth and encourage our audience to understand current events from a Biblical perspective.

The Watchman

In the Bible, the Watchman is responsible for keeping watch and warning others of potential danger or impending judgment. The role is mentioned several times in the Old Testament, particularly in the book of Ezekiel. In Ezekiel 33:6, God says to the prophet Ezekiel, "But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, so that the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any one of them, that person is taken away in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at the watchman's hand."
