Having Faith in the Last Days

5 Dec2016 KWH Faith// Kenneth W. Hagin

IN MATTHEW CHAPTER 24, the disciples came to Jesus on the Mount of Olives and asked Him about the last days. Jesus told them that nation would rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom. He also talked about famines, pestilences, and earthquakes (vs. 7). We don't have to look far to see that we are living in the last days.

As Christians, we should not be afraid of the end times. Because of everything that is happening around the world, we must guard against fear. If we don't, it will creep in and rule our lives. We should not be trembling in fear, hiding in caves, or buying survival packages. God has given us the answer for the day in which we live: "Have faith in God," (Mark 11:22).

Focusing on what is reported daily on the news can cause us to lose our grip on faith. When our faith is squarely in God, we can be assured that we'll be taken care of no matter what happens in the world or when calamity strikes close to home.

Fear causes us to become self-centered, and it immobilizes us. It keeps us from receiving from God and doing anything for Christ. We forget how big God really is.

TO LIVE VICTORIOUSLY, WE MUST KEEP OUR FAITH IN GOD. His Word is truth and He will fulfill His promises. We can count on Him to take care of us. We can't pray against what has been prophesied in Scripture about the end times. But we can believe that God will protect and provide for us. Having "faith in God" will cause us to live above adversity.

Teaching about the end times is important. We need to know what Scripture says will happen. And we need to make up our minds that we're going to believe God no matter what. When we do, we will live victoriously in these last days.
