“For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.” - Matthew 24:7, 8.
True to the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, there have been several wars and tumults since after the First World War of 1914 – 1918. Despite the end of the cold war, there has been an increase in conflicts around the world due to the struggle for dominance between the powerful countries of the world. Even as at now several countries are entangled in civil or international wars. Millions are pining away as refugees in and around the various hot spots.
Leaders are helpless in the cross currents of these events over which they have no control. They keep shuttling from one city to the other in the search for solutions. While some are genuinely seeking for solutions to the problems, others are actively fueling them, for their own selfish ends. World leaders will continue in beating about the bush unless they turn to God and His word in the Holy Bible. Scripture says: “The wise men are ashamed, they are dismayed and taken: lo, they have rejected the word of the LORD; and what wisdom is in them?” - Jeremiah 8:9.
