2015 the year fear, hype and deception went into overdrive. But lo and behold, we made it to 2016. We made it through the “Tetred”, an event many claimed was a “clear sign from God” the end was about to transpire, instead of seeing it as another sign of the times. We made it through the so called “Shitmah”, something Christians should not have been concerned about to begin with. We made it through the Greece economic crisis as they accepted yet another bailout. We made it through supposed stock market disaster scenarios in September. We made it through Jade Helm without being rounded up into a concentration camp. We made it through the Ebola scare, something we pointed out was fear and hype from the start.
I want to ensure God’s children do not become desensitized and lose their faith with all of the negative news and date setting by some. We all need to remain steadfast and increase our faith in the Lord as the events of our world will only become worse and challenge our faith as the days wear on. The point here is we need to relax and take a deep breath… I want you to see how fear, hype and deception can get us all worked up, if we allow it. This is why analyzing the news is a very serious task. We should ensure we are looking at these topics with a level head and always use the wisdom and understanding provided by our Father for our interpretation of them.
