Will You Live in Faith or Fear?

April 24, 2017
Will You Live in Faith or Fear?
Recent events in North Korea and the international response to its threats have caused a sudden surge in sales in Japan of special air purifiers and shelters designed to provide protection from a possible gas or nuclear attack.

Specially crafted air purifiers have sold out in Tokyo in the last few days, even though they cost upwards of two month’s salary for the average worker. Families and businesses are building shelters costing hundreds of thousands of dollars to protect their loved ones and employees in the event of a weapon of mass destruction attack. Some makers of these shelters claim they can protect people from a nuclear bomb detonated only a half-mile away.

Japan is one of the few countries that has had firsthand experience with gas and nuclear attacks. In 1995, the Aum Shinrikyo cult deployed sarin gas in the Tokyo subway system, killing thirteen people and injuring more than 5,000 others. The U.S. military also used two atomic bombs on Japan in World War II.

The fear gripping the citizens of Japan and South Korea is also causing increased concern in the United States, as the risk of North Korea’s intercontinental missile deployment has become an eminent threat. We seem to be living in the time Jesus described in Luke 21:26, when “men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth.”

Jesus knew the threat of war would increase at the end of time, but He told His followers that they did not need to be troubled or worried (Matthew 24:6,7). Jesus also reminded them to read and understand the words of the prophet Daniel (Matthew 24:15).

In Daniel 12:1, as stunning prophecies are reaching their conclusion, we find this accurate prophecy and an encouraging promise: “And there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.”

In this time of earth’s history, when safety and peace seem available only for a price, those who have faith in Jesus can place their full trust in His promises of eternal life and deliverance from the evil and destruction that surrounds us in this world.
