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 preceded by difficult and painful labor, the birth of the Millennium, and after that, the glorious New Heaven and Earth, is preceded 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!

RonGraff.jpg - 6668 Bytes Look for the Good in Every Situation!

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy-meditate on these things. - Philippians 4:8

Unfortunately, most of the headlines here at Prophecy Central are negative. That is inevitable since our purpose is to track the progress toward God's ultimate plans for the earth. Those plans are clearly revealed in Bible prophecies that certainly appear to be coming to pass right before our eyes.

The wonderful reality about God's revealed plans is that Jesus Christ is coming back to earth to establish His Kingdom. He will rule in righteousness over an indescribably fabulous age. The problem is that before He returns as King of Kings, the Earth must go through a dreadful period of disasters known as "The Tribulation" (Matthew 24:9-28). And Jesus, who taught us about these coming trials, said there would even be big problems in the generation leading up to the Tribulation. He called this period of time, "The beginning of sorrows [birth pains]" (Matthew 24:4-8). This could very well be a reference to our own troubled times.

Looking for the good in every situation is not a denial of reality. It is the proper way for a Child of God to respond to the serious problems we face. (Be sure you are a born-again member of God's family.)

Every shock, and every new installment of bad news, should cause us to consciously focus our attention on what God is allowing or doing in human history. Things that look bad have a divine purpose (Romans 8:28). And God has given us supernatural resources to employ at times like these. He has promised that believers will have supernatural wisdom (James 1:4), the peace that passes understanding (Philippians 4:6-7), His own love flowing through them (Romans 5:5-8; 1 John 4:19), joy and the other qualities listed as the "Fruit of the Spirit." (Galatians 5:22-23)

Looking for the good in whatever is happening is not just positive thinking or self-help religion. We can recognize what is bad in this sinful world, but by faith, we should remember that God is good, and He is in control.

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose." - Romans 8:28

This is the Thanksgiving season. It would be a great time for each of us to see every personal or world-wide problem in the light of this command to look for the truth and goodness that can result from everything that happens.

After teaching about the Rapture of the Church and the destructive Tribulation (Philippians 4:13-5:11) the Apostle Paul wrote:

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. - 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
