Can you feel it? I feel it deep down in my soul. Evil is on the march and at every turn is taking over our society, this world. What is good is called evil and what is evil is considered good. The deception is so great and so many are decieved. They are so deceived it is hard to know where to begin in trying to unravel the deception that has been cast upon them.
Where can we turn? Where should we turn? To God, usually the last place we turn, unfortunately, but He has promised us peace and comfort if we will turn back to Him.
We can rest assured that however great the evil is that is now enveloping the world, God is greater. He has overcome this world and will be coming back soon for His bride, the church – true believers in Christ. Those that hold firmly to Christ’s words:
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
5 Thomas *said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, how do we know the way?” 6 Jesus *said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.
Oneness with the Father
7 If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; from now on you know Him, and have seen Him.” (emphasis mine)
You can not get any clearer than that statement. He did not say “I am A way, and A truth, and A life…” No He is THE Way, and THE Truth, and THE Life. That is the truth we must accept and humble ourselves before Him, laying our pride and worldly desires aside, and follow Him.
It is our blessed hope, our blessed assurance that we are not destined to suffer through the times ahead but to be with our Lord, Jesus Christ, in heaven – our true home.
Maranatha, Lord come quickly!

In Romans 10 Paul lays out how salvation is open to all, Jew and Gentile. He writes:
“For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.” – Romans 10:4-5
What he is saying is now it is not about works or how closely to a “T” you follow the law. But that it is through God’s gift of grace through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. It is really that simple, and yet a hard step for some of us.
“That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” – Romans 10:9
Christ is the narrow gate (Matthew 7:13-14), through faith in Him you will be saved. It is the only “works” that God requires for eternal salvation.
