PERILOUS TIMES

Luke 21:25-26

 

“And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;” Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.

 

 

LESSON

 

Jesus is pointing to signs that will precede His coming and teaching His followers not to be discouraged. Tribulation conditions at the end of the times of the Gentiles are again in view. The scope of these crises is global, not just in Judea. Probably we should understand the “roaring of the sea” literally, since Jesus also mentioned “waves.” Evidently the disturbances in “the heavens” will affect the tides and waves, causing great insecurity. Global catastrophes will cause even greater trouble to come for those living on the earth in the Tribulation, and they will fear greatly. The universe will appear to be about to break up.

This is just one of many descriptions in the Bible of the last day.  However, when you put them all together, our planet isn’t the only thing that’s going to be destroyed.  All the matter and energy in the entire universe will start breaking down.  As this begins happening, our oceans will shake and roar like no one has ever seen before; and people are going to be scared! We, Christians, on the other hand will know what’s going on.  We’ll know that in a matter of minutes, hours, days at the most, we will hear trumpets and we will see Jesus.  However, while we’re waiting, we may experience some fear.
