Mark 13:7 New King James Version (NKJV)
7 But when you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be troubled; for such things must happen, but the end is not yet.
In today’s high tech global military environment that is controlled by seemingly highly emotionally driven individuals in prominent positions of authority, the question of “What If?” is on the minds of many. Depending on the communications and decisions made by others that can have life-altering, lifetime impacts globally can be unnerving if thought about intently.
Going about our daily living activities and keeping an eye and ear open for the latest news report of which leader is not pleased with a situation and having the ability to cause mass devastation with a simple command is not something new. The possibility of those decisions being made is very real.
If the scriptures are believed to be prophetic, the rumors are just that, rumors and the wars that exist must exist. It is not necessary to be in agreement with the decisions or reasons behind wars and the rumors of them. What is necessary as a believer is to understand the significance of our existence.
Faith keeps the focus on the message sent by these events that remind us there is a purpose spiritually and fear of what is happening or is threatened to happen is not our responsibility. We walk by faith and know that all things are working out as planned.
