Good News!

Heard any good news lately? Prophecy comprises about one-third of the Bible, and believe it or not, most of it is good news! The prophecies of the first coming of Messiah were certainly good news. And the massive amount of Bible teaching about the Millennial age and beyond, is unquestionably positive!

But admittedly, much of "end-time prophecy" is depressing. We should remember that Jesus called this phase of the future "labor pains." Just as the birth of a baby is preceeded by difficult and painful labor, the birth of the Millenium, and after that, the glorious New Heaven and Earth, is preceeded by the Tribulation.

We need to balance our study of prophecy with a reminder that God is still on His throne. He is the loving, all-powerful creator and the designer of our incredible salvation.

The Gospel is the "Good News." The Bible is His love letter to us. The incredible Creation is His handicraft. The Family is His idea. Israel is still His chosen people. And the Church is the greatest expression of His power and purpose during this age.

Additionally, the Bible tells us repeatedly not to be afraid! So let's check out the good news today!

Good news for 2014

Dec. 31, 2013 - Joseph Farah, editor of WND, says he is happy on this New Year's Eve. He asks himself why he is "popping the champagne corks and throwing streamers around the house?" He asks...
Is it because things can’t get any worse?
Absolutely not.
In fact, things can get much worse.
He goes on to list many issues that could make 2014 a very bad year: the economy, corrupt government, the crisis in healthcare, instability in the world...

But Farah sees a silver lining in those dark clouds. He reminds us that "God is in control. And He has provided us with a clear prescription for turning things around." He quotes 2 Chronicles 7:14,

“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
If believers will memorize that verse and follow its advice, he says 2014 can be a year of revival and miracles.

The Darker the Night, the Brighter the Light

Apr. 18, 2013 - Looking out the window from my workspace at home I see an incredibly beautiful mountain view. It’s a bright and glorious day!

But when I turn on the television, everything becomes dark and gloomy. Terrorism at the Boston Marathon, Ricin-laced letters to government officials, a horrendous explosion at a fertilizer plant in Texas, nuclear developments in Iran, threats from North Korea…

Should I leave the TV off, and just pretend that everything is the way it seems at my window? Or I should I close the shades and get my view of the world from the TV?

Fortunately I have another source of information between the two. My Bible is open on the table, and in it I see that darkness does exist, and it may be getting worse, but it can never overcome the light! The Gospel of John starts this way:

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.– John 1:1-4 (NIV)
