(KJV.) ROMANS 8:22-25
(22) For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.
(23) And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.
(24) For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not to hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?
(25) But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.
Brethren, at times we need to ask ourselves few questions about what is going on in this world, what can we do to make it a better, and peaceful world?; these questions may seem complicated to answer, but are not really difficult questions to discuss; why?, because, pending issues to discuss are issues seen vividly happening, and known to humanity; the questions is, if we know what to do for peace to reign supreme in this world, why don't we do it, but sit back, relax and allow this world to continue to be in turmoil?, this a point to ponder on!
let us not deceive ourselves that all is well in this world; the fact is, things are not going rightfully at this present times; we hear devasting news from medias around the world at all times; there are nature disasters destroying lives and enviroments or humanity terrorising itself, causing devasting situations everywhere on earth: only few people claim to be happy, enjoying trueness of life; even those few, are not safe anywhere on planet earth; not only those few, but includes believers; we sit back, ask ourselves, what is going on?, what can we do about these occurances?; despite facts that we believe in Jesus Christ, we still lament within our innermost spirits, when we hear the world in turmoil; question ourselves, what can believers do about these devasting occurances?; the answer is, to pray fervently, cry out to our Father, call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, ask for his mercies, to abound on earth, continue to hope that someday, Jesus Christ will appear in the skies, at his second coming to quickly rescue believers from troubles of this world unto himself forevermore.
In the past generations, prophets, high priests, servants of our Father, cried out to him on behalves of his children, whenever there are difficult situations: for example, Samuel cried out our Father, that he will save his children from the hands of the Philitines, offered up burntofferings to thank him; what happened?, when the Philistines drew near to battle against his children, our Father thundered with great thunder upon the Philistines that day, scared and defeated them completly, refer to 1 Samuel chapter 7; another example of how our Father shines lights of mercies upon his children, when they cry out to him in despair; Jonah went to Nineveh to deliver a message to the people of Nineveh that in forty days, Nineveh shall be overthrown, the people of Nineveh believed our Father, and declared a fast, humbled themselves, eveyone participated in the fasting, cried out to our Father, turned from their evil ways; our Father looked down from throne of grace, repented from his fierce anger, turn away that they perish not; refer to Jonah chapter 3,. etc.,; therefore, there is nothing going on in this world that Jesus Christ cannot handle, control, reverse; however, as believers, we have to step up to the plate and pray, let our supplications be heard in heaven, that the mercies of Jesus Christ may abound on earth, touch human hearts, to reason, live peaceably with one another.
So far as nature disasters are concern, Jesus takes control of affairs of this world; but we cannot rule evil works of the enemy out of our problems; why?, because, Satan, went to allegate Job to our Father, how righeousness he was, how our Father had protected, built a wall of defence around his life; obtained permission from our Father to troubled his soul, when permission was granted to Satan to pester with his soul, he sent out fires to destroy Job possesions, enemies carried away his livestock and servants, whilwind came from the wilderness, destroyed his household, excluding his wife; refer to the book of Job from chapter 1: however, when Job cried out unto our Father, in his predicaments; our Father took absolute control of his distresses, turn his sorrows into joyfulness, restored his lost possessions and settled him down with much more than what he had before his delima: therefore, regardless of what goes on behind the scenes before nature disasters happened; scientifically, or spiritually, who sent those calamities, where they came from to devaste lives; the answer to our problems, is prayers, if we cry out to Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, ask for divine interventions, he will surely answer, take absolute control of our predicaments, stop our negative situations, stabilise our enviroments with eternal peace.
Dearly beloved, there is hope for believers in this world; regardless of what may go wrong, we are safe in the hands of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; therefore, there is nothing to worry or fear about in this world; let us thread upon this world as owners, not as timid believers, we are more than conquerors; for Jesus conquered the world, took away our fears and anxieties upon himself, that we dwell in his presence peacefully forever and evermore. Let us have hopeful in him! Amen and Amen!
