In Times of Scarcity

scarcity, parched land

“For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.”
–Matthew 24:7

According to God’s Word, the last days will be filled, not only with chaos and confusion, but with GREAT SCARCITY among non-believers.

In contrast to all of this heartache among the unsaved, are the MANY promises of God to believers to provide in times of GREAT SCARCITY.

“Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.”
–Matthew 6:31-32

“Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls?”
–Luke 12:24

“And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work”
–2CORINTHIANS 9:8

Once again, these promises are made to those who follow and obey and fear God.  Others who choose NOT to submit to God’s will, need not apply.

It is ALSO true that these promises do NOT apply to those who mistakenly BELIEVE they are one of God’s people; in other words, those who do not exhibit the transformed life of the believer but those pretenders who take on the religious trappings of Christianity in order to convince other men they are righteous.

A GREAT MANY fool themselves into believing this.

So, if the reader finds himself in the midst of the last days and is plagued by want, perhaps the reader should re-evaluate his standing with God?

God–who CREATED ALL–knows NO scarcity: neither do the followers of God.

One thing the reader may want to remember in the days, weeks and months ahead.

IN TIMES OF SCARCITY, MAN SAYS “CONSERVE!

IN TIMES OF SCARCITY, GOD SAYS “I OWN THE CATTLE ON A THOUSAND HILLS.”

“For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills.”
–Psalms 50:10

DOES the reader ever wonder WHERE he will end up?

DOES the reader quiet any doubts he may have by thinking of his church attendance?

It is not YET too late: there is still a little time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

DOES the reader believe he is saved?

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
