    "For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night." As long as we are in the world we will have tribulation, and every generation has had something serious to deal with. While we see so many bad things happening, and getting worse and worse, it should move us to search and try our hearts and repent, and set in order all our ways before we come before Him.

    For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, 1 Thessalonians 5:9 I strongly advise everyone to read the Psalms carefully and prayerfully in order to realize and to understand that bearing up under tribulation, persecution, opposition and contradiction from the ungodly, is not wrath from God but A TOKEN OF THE GRACE OF GOD AND HIS SPIRIT ABIDING IN YOU! If you were of the world, the world would love its own. But because you ARE NOT OF THE WORLD, but the Lord Jesus Christ has severed you from other people that you should be His therefore the world hates you, as it hated Jesus before you. Our appointed portion in this life, is to be transformed into the image and likeness of God our Saviour, and in doing so, to bear up cheerfully under the sufferings of Christ while we await His return! Study the history of the Church, and you'll see that this has been the way of all Jesus' people in every age. Why should we the last generation before His coming want to have it any different from all our brothers and sisters who went before us? Don't be misled by the earthly-minded self-life serving errors of the ungodly! Be strong and persevere, be resilient and stand true and faithful to the end and Jesus will give us the crown of life.
