Matthew 24:7-8 “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.”
Yes, these are the beginning of sorrows.
As we come closer to Jesus through Spritual Exercise of Bible study, prayer and meditation upon God’s Word, these sorrows will have less and less impact.
These sorrows will disrupt the world and cause much stress, but those who love God with ALL their hearts, will not become discouraged.
God’s people will tolerate all difficulties. They will face hardship with courage.
There is a strength from God that helps weather all storms.
I praise God for this prophecy that prepares and encourages His people.
Please add your comments to this thought at the bottom of this post so others can be blessed through your words also.
You and I can benefit much from studying the life of Jesus. It will give us the same power from the Father that He received. Power that will slowly change our desires to be more pure. Power that will slowly help us to dislike sinful things. When our desires and “likes” change we can be used by God as a sweet aroma to help others.
Salvation is a one-to-one affair. Family or church worship isn’t enough to form and grow a relationship with God.
So, join me and spend time with God. Spiritual Exercises are fun, You’ll love it!

If Jesus spent all night in prayer then why do we think we need so little?
Jesus would arise early in the morning and go outside and find a place of seclusion to pray. He spent time with the Father and received strength. It allowed Him to resist temptation. It allowed Him to succeed in His mission.
