And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
Matthew 24: 3-7
The news this morning seems grim. Another earthquake in Japan and the talk of a tsunami. Praise God no deaths have been reported as of yet. It seems that disasters are every where you look. As a Christian these things are terrifying yet there is understanding and a calmness and peace that is unshakeable. As a non Christian I can’t imagine the panic that must fill the mind, body and soul.
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life:
no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
