ANXIETY vs TRIBULATION

ANXIETY

NOT a lot has been written about the difference between ANXIETY and TRIBULATION.

If one refers to God’s Word, a GREAT DEAL is mentioned about TRIBULATION–mostly that which occurs in the last days.

“When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the LORD thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice; (For the LORD thy God is a merciful God;) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them.”
–Deuteronomy 4:30-31

Jesus warned of GREAT TRIBULATION in the last days before his second coming to earth.

“For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.”
–Matthew 24:21-22

ALL believers will face TRIBULATION.

“Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.”
–Acts 14:22

So, TRIBULATION is a necessary hard time believers must deal with during the last days.

Once, websites which addressed God’s Word, taught that ‘tribulation’ came from the Hebrew word which meant ‘a narrow or constricting place.’ ‘Tribulation’ therefore carried the meaning of ‘no escape’ OR ‘no way out of this.’

TRIBULATION was NOT necessarily PHYSICAL PERSECUTION–TRIBULATION was the mental anguish of knowing one was in a circumstance of no escape. BUT believers were taught that God and Jesus Christ would help them deal with TRIBULATION.

As Jesus said about TRIBULATION:

“Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me. These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”
–John 16:32-33

UNbelievers, on the other hand, will suffer a great deal from ANXIETY.

ANXIETY

a. apprehensive uneasiness or nervousness usually over an impending or anticipated ill -a state of being anxious

b. mentally distressing concern or interest

God’s Word does NOT mention ANXIETY: the word does NOT appear in the Bible.

YET, anxiety will EAT AT the peace of mind of UNbelievers.

We can know this because UNbelievers minds are filled with tales which indicate hand-wringing ANXIETY and ANXIOUSNESS are present for them in the last days.

God’s Word contains NO comfort for those suffering from ANXIETY.

What’s the difference between ANXIETY and TRIBULATION?

TRIBULATION and ANXIETY are fairly close in meaning.

HOWEVER, TRIBULATION is visited upon believers and God’s Word assures the believer that he will still have peace of mind during times of TRIBULATION.

ANXIETY is suffered by UNbelievers and God’s Word offers NO assurance that UNbelievers will have peace of mind.

“But the wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt. There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked.”
–Isaiah 57:20-21

WHICH would the reader prefer during the last days: anxiety or tribulation?

WHY does the reader feel this way?

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.

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.”

What the World Offers

THE WORLD

“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.”
–1JOHN 2:15

When once one was a HEATHEN, one looked to the world for MANY things.

The world provided information about any number of topics.

The world provided amusement in the form of ENTERTAINMENT and PASTIMES.

The world provided the MUSIC which seemed to accompany any and all parts of modern life.

The world provided AMENITIES, which seemed to make life just a LITTLE more bearable for those forced to live it.

The world provided a GREAT NUMBER of NARRATIVES (stories) about how good and benevolent the world was, is and always has been.

In short, the world provided all of the above, PLUS money (to buy cars, houses and other things of the world), things (which could be bought for money), acclaim and recognition, and AMUSEMENTS AND TRIVIALITIES to while away the time.

THE WORLD was the source of all that was seemingly good…

…when one was a heathen.

Eventually, one left the path of the heathen and became a member of the kingdom of heaven.

During this time, it was discovered that one’s outlook THEN changed drastically aswell.

The world and the things of the world THEN didn’t look so bright and shiny as they had looked earlier.

Those things THEN looked corrupted.

“Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.” –2PETER 1:4

Again, one’s outlook THEN changed drastically.

No longer was the world looked upon as a CORNUCOPIA OF GOOD THINGS.

No longer was the world a provider of what man did not have.

No longer did all paths appear to lead to the world.

No longer was the hunger for the world and the things of the world INSATIABLE; the insatiable became fully satiated.

One lost interest in the world and what the world offers.

Because the world and what the world has to offer is TEMPORARY; fleeting and brief.

When one was no longer a HEATHEN, one became fascinated with what is real; what is PERMANENT; what is lasting and enduring.

It is THEN that the former heathen discovers (to his great surprise and disappointment) that the world is NOT his friend.

“Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.”
–James 4:4

…And whoever is an enemy of God is an enemy of someone who is a member of the kingdom of heaven.

…And in the last days, one VERY MUCH should desire to be a member of the kingdom of heaven.

WHAT does the reader believe about the world and what the world has to offer?

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.

Satan is a Very REAL, Very Accomplished Enemy of Man

Satan Falling

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour”
–1PETER 5:8

[The world is known for saying, “Forewarned is forearmed.” But that worldly advice goes out the window when the topic is ‘spiritual deception.’]

During the end times–particularly during the last days of the end times–Satan (the devil) is portrayed by his minions working the Corporate Media in SEVERAL different ways.

Satan is either treated as a “figment,” a fiction, an invention of an over-active CHRISTIAN imagination.

Modern man is much too intelligent to believe the stories of Satan the devil.

OR

Satan is presented as ‘misunderstood’ by man–and is a worthy entity to admire.

Satan has been SLANDERED to modern man by the lying accounts in God’s Word.

THEREFORE, in an effort to combat the lying propaganda of the Father of Liars (Satan), ETPR presents–as a resource–more than 100 articles on various aspects of the devil (Satan).

When Jesus Christ walked the earth the FIRST TIME, he warned about Satan.

Jesus warned that there was ‘NO truth in him (Satan).’

“Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. “
–John 8:44
