Trapped By Fear

Looking for a safe place – it isn’t on this map

“PANDEMIC!!”

Shouting “FIRE!!” in a crowded theatre is set to create a different type of panic, people will push and shove to the exit, climbing over the slow and the weak.

However, an invisible threat grips everyone with a level of fear that we are unused to. We look to government Politicians and Scientists to point us in the right direction but they are guessing just as we are.

People panic buy and lock themselves away hoping to survive until the all clear is announced. The fear lingers for many years after.

The mountains aren’t places of safety

“Salvation!!”

Salvation has been shouted from in the streets of the world for over a century, yes an opportunity to find relief from the suffering and pain, the fear that grips society.

The Churches have quoted the remedy for almost 1900 years – Matthew 6: 9 to 15; verse 10 “Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so on earth.” is the key.

Jesus told people to pray for “God’s Kingdom” why because things would get very difficult. Notice Paul’s words to the young man Timothy 3: 1 “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.” he then describes people. It is worth a review.

Jesus spoke of the same time Luke 21: 10 “Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: 11 And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.” Matthew 24: 8 “All these are the beginning of sorrows.” and verse 13: “But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.”

Unprecedented trials and sorrow are not to grip us with fear because Jesus said our deliverance is at hand.

“Attitude – Fight or Flight!”

We can try to run and hide, we tell ourselves that someone or “life will find away”. Those with courage know they must accept the fear and battle it. Understand that God’s Kingdom is the inevitable source of comfort and support.

But, what is god’s kingdom? What will it achieve? true peace and security on earth – how will it come?

The personal journey to answer the challenging questions raised at this time begins with really knowing what the Bible Teaches and how the churches have misrepresented God. So a personal Bible Study program is important. Don’t do it alone this link takes you to an online study resource.

Why won’t science or politicians have the answer? Because they too are gripped with fear! They too want to hide. They know that the law of unintended consequences leaves us with many problems to mop up.

For example Governments are now thinking of the economic impact, the longer this goes on the weaker the national economy becomes. The time for opportunists to gamble and make money through the suffering of others, civil disobedience is an inevitable result, life becomes more complex when money and power are prioritised rather than preserving lives.

Tomorrow will dawn as a new day so be ready to accept the challenge, don’t run in fear challenge the future by finding your own path to truth. Truth leads to the Real Life

Find the pathway to Real Freedom
