Perfect Peace and Comfort in Evil Times - MH17

I have told you these things so that you will be whole and at peace. In this world, you will be plagued with times of trouble, but you need not fear; I have triumphed over this corrupt world order.   John 16:33 (VOICE)

People all over the world have probably already heard and being shocked by the blatant inhumanity of the Russian-backed rebel militants in Ukraine. The sad and unfortunate Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 carrying 298 people, that has crashed in eastern Ukraine, after being allegedly shot down by the militants with a surface-to-air missile.

Politically, it was no surprise that Russia is trying to claw back the currently independent Ukraine. What we are seeing is the end time prophecy slowly taking form again after the breakup of Soviet Union. This prophecy points to Russia as the northern aggressor against Israel in Ezekiel 38, the prince of Rosh.  If you draw a straight line up from Israel, you will reach the now hotly contested Crimea, eastern Ukraine and then the Russian capital, Moscow.

Perfect Peace and Comfort in Evil Times - EZEKIEL 38-39: ANCIENT PROPHET GLIMPSES MODERN WORLD!

I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.]   John 16:33 (AMP).

We know there are sorrows and troubles in this fallen world. You see, many people will ask where is God in all this? Why is God not doing anything? However, we know from the Bible that when God made humans, God has lovingly given the authority of the earth to Adam and Eve. However, they had gravely given their divine authority away to the devil at the fall when they disobeyed God’s instructions. This gave the devil authority to reign chaos and death on this earth; the evil times. Times now, as such.

This is not God’s doing.

But… we are not hopeless and helpless because Jesus Christ came and redeemed us; for those who believed in Him (its a jolly good time, if you are still undecided). The time will come when He will come again for us at the rapture, when He will call up His loved ones. Looking at things, its going to be soon. In the meantime, we don’t have to be fearful or anxious like the world does. In fact, all these are already being foretold in the Bible. Just be calm and courageous, better yet – be of good cheer; having faith (and good expectation) in The Lord, His goodness and covering protection.

Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days. Don’t act thoughtlessly, but understand what the Lord wants you to do. Don’t be drunk with wine, because that will ruin your life. Instead, be filled with the Holy Spirit, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs among yourselves, and making music to the Lord in your hearts. And give thanks for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.   Ephesians 5:16-20 (NLT)

This is how we overcome. Turn the evil days into days worship and thanksgiving. And there is a good reason for it.    For I have overcome the world. – Jesus Christ
