2022 An Ominous Year

Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. Mt 24:42

Dear Friends in Christ,

Many of us see the signs about us and know that we are living in the time of ’the beginning of sorrows’ Jesus spoke of in Mt 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21, especially. As 2021 was a foreboding year in many ways, this next year 2022 will be an ominous one. I looked up ominous and an example was ’dark cloud before a thunderstorm’. That would seem as an understatement for what appears to be on the horizon. It does not look like things will get better in our society and country or elsewhere in the world for that matter, with our insurmountable problems, social and economical, pandemics, not including upheavals in nature as well. That simply stated is how things are, but we must not be discouraged.

We need to hang in there and FIGHT the GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH, building up our most Holy Faith with the Word of God, and His many promises to us. 1 Tim 6:11-12 tells us to ’follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness. Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eterneal life whereunto thou art called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses’. Emmanuel, God is with us (Mt1:23). It is a spiritual battle every day between good and evil, God and Satan for our souls, but you must stand fast and fight. Humble yourself, resist the devil and he will flee from you (Jas 4:7).

For those of you who are suffering from fear, anxiety, intimidation, criticism and divisiveness among family and friends, outside pressures or demands put upon you, depression, sickness, etc. STAND FAST, all of these things are from Satan who wants to steal your joy and peace in God. 2 Tim 1:7 says ’For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power and of love, and of a sound mind’. God has given us His Holy Spirit to be our Helper, Comforter and Teacher to guide us and to help us to pray (Rom 8:26-27).

How can we ‘be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might’? We absolutely need the whole armour of God to stand against the devil and do spiritual warfare, and an important part of this armour is our weapon, the Word of God. Study Eph 6:11-18 and learn how we can fight the good fight of faith.

Praying that you all will be strong in the Lord in these coming days. Shalom. Maranatha.

Love to all- Liz

(P.S. I made 8l years old on Dec. 15, not slowing down, but stronger in my faith!)
